The puzzle pieces in Tetro Puzzles have a color and shape designated to them. The color and shape of the puzzle piece denote the unique stat it provides you with. And each puzzle piece will grant CP by default.
For example, the upside-down purple L-shaped piece will provide you Accuracy, while the purple square will provide you with an Attack. Do note that each Tetro Puzzle has a color type to it, meaning that you can only fill it up using pieces of that specific color.
Another great thing about Tetro Puzzles is that the different puzzle boards will also provide you with unique stats as a bonus. For example, the “Chick” puzzle will grant Accuracy, while the “Chicken” puzzle will grant Accuracy and Evasion as bonus stats.
So if you’re looking for a specific stat to increase for your character, take a look at the different puzzles and puzzle pieces to figure out which puzzle and which pieces grant that specific stat.

Puzzle pieces can also be upgraded to raise the stat increase that they give. To do that, click on the “Combine” tab in the Tetro Puzzle menu.
