With the spooky time of year fast approaching, Pokémon Shuffle is celebrating the occasion with two new Halloween-inspired events.
The first is titled Dusknoir Descends and requires players to defeat the ghost type Pokémon in 20 moves or less. If acquired and then used in battle, Dusknoir may occasionally use Last-Ditch Effort.
The second event is a Halloween themed Pokémon Safari which requires players to capture wild Pokémon in 5 to 12 moves. The safari pocket monsters include Crobat, Dusclops, Duskull, Golbat, Gourgeist, Pumpkaboo and Zubat.
Both events end on 26th October and are available across all versions of Pokémon Shuffle including 3DS, iOS and Android platforms. The latest batch of stages for the mobile versions of Shuffle have also arrived.
Tell us in the comment section below if you're still addicted to Pokémon Shuffle.
Now why can't Nintendo have holiday events with more of its IP's? (Looks at Splatoon...)
There's speculation of a repeat Mega Banette competition in the future, Halloween theme 'n all.
Still addicted to it? Not at all (never was). But it makes a somewhat decent time-waster. Or as much time as you can waste playing 5 turns every 2 and a half hours for those 5 hearts to replenish again. I'm more so keeping up with it because I figure at least I can catch all the event Pokés I've missed in the regular games in Shuffle (Pokémon Black/White was my first Poké game). In the regular games I'm missing Arceus, Shaymin, Jirachi, Victini, and Darkrai. But I have all those in Shuffle sans Darkrai (either he hasn't been released yet or he may be an expert stage I haven't unlocked yet).
Why does it end on October 26th and not on November 1st?
Darkrai was an escalation battle a couple of months back. He has been released, but you missed him. You'll have to wait for him to come round again I guess.
Am I still addicted to Pokémon Shuffle? With my 245:47 playtime (6th in activity log), I would have to say yes. I guess it's because of updates like this keeps me playing, also the play hearts keeps me from binge playing to the point I get tired of it.
@ultraraichu I am at 210 hours but have never spent a dime. I spend most of my hearts of Meowth stages. I have at least 100 Pokemon who are at least Level 5.
Thanks to the new Pokemon Safari, Pokemon Shuffle now has Mt. Moon Simulator!
I play this game on the iPad. It's a pretty cute match-3 with some great tunes, even if very obviously designed for continuously occupying mindshare by keeping people coming back as often as possible to the Pokémon universe.
