Pokémon Shuffle (Japanese: ポケとる PokéToru) is a freemium puzzle game released for the Nintendo 3DS. It was released on the Japanese, Australian, European, and North American Nintendo 3DS eShop on February 18, 2015. It updates itself during communication with a server (called "check in").

Pokémon Shuffle operates on a free-to-play model—the game is free to download and play, although with a limited number of stages playable in quick succession. Players start with five Hearts and spend one Heart per stage played. Hearts will recharge for free as time passes at a rate of one Heart every 30 minutes, with no more regenerated if the player already has five Hearts. More Hearts can be purchased with Jewels, which can be bought with real money or occasionally received as prizes, to allow players to immediately resume their game. One Heart is also given for free when the player plays Stage 11 for the first time, even if the player has Hearts remaining.


Get ready for the latest Pokémon puzzle game! Match three or more Pokémon to clear them from the screen and damage the opponent Pokémon. But watch out—your moves are limited, so use them wisely! With no time limit, you can create the best matches to deal out maximum damage. With many popular Pokémon, including some Mega-Evolved Pokémon, this is the perfect puzzle game for fans and for new players who want to get in on the Pokémon fun.


Pokémon Shuffle is a puzzle game in which the player matches Pokémon icons to defeat wild Pokémon, in a similar style to Pokémon Battle Trozei. The player can capture Pokémon and use them as Support Pokémon. Each Pokémon has a Skill that can be activated when it is matched in a battle, with the criteria being that the move was not part of a combo and a special criteria based on the Skill in question (sometimes at random). Pokémon have a set capture rate that is added to depending on how many moves a player has left at the end of a battle. As of Version 1.2.0, this figure can occasionally be doubled before the capture attempt. During normal game-play, Pokémon can be moved anywhere in the Puzzle Area, but cannot be moved if they do not cause a match. No-match moves are allowed in timed stages, however.

Mega Stones are given out throughout the game, awarded when the player defeats the corresponding Mega Pokémon used by a Trainer. The player can use them by putting the Pokémon that uses them at the front of their Support, and the Mega Evolution is activated by matching the Pokémon that Mega Evolves until the Mega Gauge to the left of the play area is full, at which point it Mega Evolves. While Mega Evolved, its Skill is replaced by a Mega Effect that activates whenever it is matched. The clock of a timed stage will stop while the Mega Evolution occurs.

If at any time during a stage there are no moves the player can make that would result in a triplet, the game will say "Let's shake things up!" and replace all Pokémon on the Puzzle Area (removing all disruptions and adding any disruptions present at the start of the match), from when the player can continue to play. The clock of a timed stage stops while play is prevented. If the player is out of moves or time when this happens, even if the reset board contains matches none of them will deal damage unless the player chooses to continue by paying a Jewel.

Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: In v1.2.0 onward, is the free Heart from Amelia before Stage 11 a bonus Heart or regenerating Heart?.

The tutorial portion of the game lasts until the player completes Stage 11. Throughout the tutorial, the player is guided by Amelia.

The player starts the game with 5 regenerating Hearts, 0 bonus hearts, 0 Coins, 0 Jewels, and no Support Pokémon. Upon starting the game, Amelia introduces the game and forces the player to play Stage 1: Espurr (without offering the player the opportunity to buy items), on which the game forces the player's moves, guaranteeing that Espurr has 100% catchability. The game then forces the player to add Espurr to their party, then play Stage 2: Bulbasaur. Because the player now has Coins (from completing Stage 1), Amelia introduces the concept of buying items; the player does not currently have enough Coins to buy any, but she gives them a free Moves +5 to demonstrate the item.

After successfully completing Stage 2, the game opens the menu for Stage 3. The Optimize button (which did not appear before) is now added and Amelia explains it to the player. Amelia explains type effectiveness to the player.

After starting Stage 4, Amelia explains the concept of skills to the player.

After completing Stage 5, when the player tries the catch Eevee, the game forces the Poké Ball to fail, but Amelia then gives the player a Great Ball for free. After that, the player is given a free Jewel, followed by Amelia explaining the concept of Jewels. The game then offers the player the Jewel purchase menu, encouraging them to purchase 5 Hearts.

At the start of Stage 6, Amelia explains the concept of disruptions due to Pidgey turning a Support Pokémon into a breakable-rock.

When the player opens the menu for Stage 8, Amelia explains the concept of a 3-Pokémon stage due to it being one.

After completing Stage 9, when Stage 10: Mega Audino appears, Amelia hints that the stage is different to other stages. After completing the stage, Amelia explains how Mega Evolution works, and the first slot in the player's party changes to a large circle with a Mega Stone slot in order to facilitate Mega Evolution. After completing Stage 10, the game automatically opens the menu for Stage 11. Amelia then gives the player a free Heart.

After completing Stage 11, the check in button appears, which Amelia explains. She then departs, assuring the player they will meet again.


Disruptions are things added to the stage by the opposing Pokémon to make clearing the stage harder. They are added when a counter that decreases when a move is made next to the opposing Pokémon reaches zero. The counter does not change if the foe is paralyzed, asleep or frozen. Some Pokémon create disruptions after a certain amount of time or number of matches, but will not count any combos or matches performed while it is paralyzed, asleep or frozen. All disruptions can be erased by a Mega Effect. All disruptions can be cleared by Stabilize, Stabilize+ and Disrupt Buster. Swap can replace disruptions with a Support Pokémon.

Disruption Effect
Barrier-type Prevents the Pokémon icon or disruption under it from moving in any way, including falling. Can be cleared by making a match using the Pokémon icon under it, Barrier Bash and the icon it affects being erased by Mega Effects, Quirky or Quirky+. If cleared by matching the icon underneath or a skill other than Quirky or Quirky+, the Pokémon icon under it is not destroyed. Can affect most other disruptions, and can be under a black-cloud disruption.
Non-Support Pokémon icon A Pokémon icon of a Pokémon that was not selected as a support Pokémon for the stage. Can be moved freely, perform matches with itself and activate its skill. Can be cleared in any way a normal Pokémon icon can (including by another one of them activating Quirky or Quirky+), plus by Eject, although they may not be affected by Stabilise, Stabilise+ or Disrupt Buster. They come in three sub-types: as an additional support Pokémon (but without immunity to Eject), in the level at the start but not added by falling in, and added by the opposing Pokémon. Of these, only the first will change species if it is the same as the player's support Pokémon.
Coin An icon that gives the player bonus Coins if matched. Can be moved freely and performs matches with itself. Can be cleared in any way a normal Pokémon icon can, and they are affected by Stabilise, Stabilise+, Swap, or Disrupt Buster. +100 Coins for a match of three, +300 Coins for a match of four, +500 for a match of five, and +700 for a match of six, regardless of any combos.
Unbreakable-block A metal block that falls, but cannot be moved by the stylus. Can be cleared by making 5 moves after it appears on the field or by Block Smash.
Breakable-rock A square rock that falls, but cannot be moved by the stylus. Can be cleared by making a match in any square next to it (not diagonally) and Rock Break. Unaffected by the removal of an ajoining a barrier-type disruption, but destroyed if an ajoining unbreakable-block disruption breaks from the player performing five moves since its introduction.
Black-cloud Prevents the player from seeing what is in the square it occupies. The Pokémon icon in this square can still be part of a match and can be moved. Can only be cleared by Cloud Clear and having whatever is under it erased (Mega Effects, Quirky or Quirky+ clearing it). Immune to Mega Effects if there is no Pokémon icon under it when the effect activates and targets the square it is in. All other disruptions can be present under it.


Whenever the player completes a stage, they will be awarded a rank, which is displayed next to their total score on a popup after completing the stage. The highest rank the player has ever earned for a particular stage is visible in the overworld, next to the stage. The rank the player earns is determined by the number of moves or amount of time the player has remaining, and the total number of moves or amount of time the player started the stage with. On some special stages, including but not limited to "Meowth's Coin Mania", competitive stages, and the Pokémon Safari, previous rankings do not appear for specific reasons.

For most move-limited stages, if the number of moves remaining upon competition of the stage is greater than or equal to half the total number of moves they started with (rounded down), the player will be awarded an S-rank. While the purchase of a +5 Moves does not affect catch percentages, it does affect rank.

For most timed stages, if the amount of time remaining upon competition of the stage is greater than or equal to half the total amount of time they started with (rounded down), the player will be awarded an S-rank.

All Competitive Stages and Stage 149: Haxorus will always grant an S-rank upon competition, regardless of performance. Meowth's Coin Mania also shares this trait.

Expert stages are unlocked depending on total number of S-ranks the player has on main stages. Ranks on expert and special stages have no impact on gameplay.

The ranks below S are A, B, and C, respectively. Remaining move numbers for each rank are typically arbitrary, as on many stages with low starting moves it can be impossible to get a B or C rank. Ranks below S serve no functional value, regardless, and do not contribute to the unlocking of extra stages.

Check in

The player can use the "check in" function once per day (server days end at 6:00 AM UTC the morning after the day ends in UTC time), which connects the player's game to the internet and gives them a reward for doing so. This normally grants 500 Coins, but will grant 1000 Coins every 10 times the player checks in.

Checking in checks for any patches the player may not have installed. If there are any minor patches, the game asks the player if they wish to download extra data, and if they do, it automatically downloads and installs it; this is the only way to install minor patches for the game. If there are any major patches, it provides a link to a page on the Nintendo eShop to download it and requests that the player download it. If there is a patch and the player does not install it, the player cannot check in. If a patch is released partway through the day and the check-in function has already been used, the patch can be downloaded on that day by attempting to check-in, but will not succeed with the check-in.

Checking in also adds any special stages the player does not already have (daily stages, such as "The Daily Pokémon (#1)", only need to be downloaded once, and will be cycled through with the system's clock). If the system time is changed, the player must check in again to regain access to any active special stages they have, thereby syncing with the server once again.

Version 1.2.x

The top screen as shown in Version 1.2.1

Version 1.2.0 was available from the Nintendo eShop on May 26, 2015. This update provides a significant number of new features and bug fixes.

  • Hearts are separated into regenerating Hearts and bonus Hearts (obtained either from StreetPass or exchanging Jewels). Regenerating Hearts are capped at 5, and will always be used instead of the bonus Hearts if there are any. Bonus hearts are capped at 99. Any Hearts the player had before the update are now treated as bonus Hearts, and the player's regenerating Hearts start off at 5 after installing the update.
  • A candy icon now appears in the top right corner of Mega Effect descriptions, with "0/x" next to it. The value of x depends on the species of the Pokémon; it differs even between Pokémon with the same Mega Effect and seems to be tied with how long each Pokémon takes to Mega Evolve. Version 1.2.2 reveals this indicates the maximum number of Mega Speedup enhancements that may be used on that Pokémon.
  • Levels and experience points are now displayed on the Optimize screen.
  • After successfully completing a stage, if the player fails to catch a Pokémon with their first Poké Ball (before using a Great Ball), they have a chance of being offered a "Super Catch Power". This Super Catch Power provides a somewhat random boost on top of the Great Ball's boost (the player still uses a Great Ball, and can use the same number of Great Balls as they could without the "Super Catch Power").
  • After successfully catching a Pokémon, its attack power and Skill are now displayed on the top screen, in the same way as when selecting Pokémon for a stage.
  • The Skill "Block Bash" has been renamed "Block Smash", and the "Bonbon Boulevard" area has been renamed "Sweet Strasse".
  • If the player leaves a stage select screen and later returns to it, it will reappear exactly as the player left it. Previously, the screen would be focused on the last available stage in that category.
  • New mechanics added to detect cheating and remove such entries from competitive contest stages, and possibly prevent those players from taking part altogether.
  • Prevents going to the Home menu by pressing the Home button during timed stages while the timer is running. Previously, this exploit could be used to view the board without a timer in both expert stages and Competitive Stages.
  • Fixes a bug which caused some non-Mega Evolved icons of the lead Pokémon to appear after Mega Evolution on Stage 176: Timburr.
  • Fixes a bug which prevented Mewtwo from Mega Evolving into Mega Mewtwo Y, and from being selected as the lead Pokémon when using the Optimize button.
Version Release date Changes
1.2.0 May 26, 2015 As detailed above.
1.2.1 May 26, 2015 Restores access to special stages. "The Daily Pokémon (#3)" notice has its background color changed from green to orange, while the "Competition Now Live" notice now features the Mega Evolved Pokémon in the stage. Adds Victini to the Pokémon List and the "Tons of Exp. Points" special stage to the game, along with the data for the Venusaur competitive stage. The Shaymin special stage "4 Million Celebration" now only gives 1000 Coins upon the first clear, not the first daily clear.
1.2.2 June 8, 2015 Adds main stages 191-200, expert stages EX22-EX24 and the special stage "Escalation Battles". Adds access to Mega Speeedup enhancement and gives one to all players for free. Also awards prizes from the competition.
1.2.3 June 15, 2015 Adds the Dialga Great Challenge stage and the re-release of the Blastoisinite competition.
1.2.4 June 22, 2015 Adds the Manaphy stage "4.5 Million Celebration" and the second wave of Pokémon Safari.
1.2.5 June 29, 2015 Adds the one-week Manectite competition.

1.2.7 July 13, 2015 Adds the move-limited Mega Lucario Competitive Stage again.


The game includes a passcode function, where the player can enter an 8-digit code that will grant a reward in-game. It is similar to the "Receive via code" option of the Mystery Gift feature found in the Generation VI core series Pokémon games.

Unique codes

Source Reward Period
April 2nd and 9th issue of Famitsu magazine 1 Jewel March 19 to May 1, 2015


The game's microtransactions are focused around Jewels. Jewels can be obtained in-game by completing Trainer stages (first time only), as prizes in contest stages (often to runner-ups), for obtaining Streetpasses, and occasionally as gifts. One Jewel was given to all players on February 21, 2015 to apologize for a software glitch that occurred around February 19, 2015; this bonus was for everyone, not just those affected by the glitch.

Primarily, Jewels are obtained via purchase on the Nintendo eShop. Jewels can be exchanged for either Hearts or Coins at the following rates:

Jewels Hearts Coins
1 5 3,000
3 18 (+20%) 10,000 (+11%)
6 38 (+27%) 22,000 (+22%)
12 80 (+33%) 48,000 (+33%)

Players under the age of 18 cannot spend more than a fixed amount in-game per month (US$80, €100, £80, AU$150, NZ$150, or ¥10,000).

Upon running out of turns or time during a stage, a player can spend 1 Jewel to gain 5 turns or 15 seconds. This bonus is not counted towards the time/turn bonus when catching the Pokémon.


The player begins the game with five Hearts. Each time a stage is played, a Heart is consumed; Hearts are replenished over time at the rate of one Heart every thirty minutes, or can be obtained in exchange for Jewels or via certain conditions via Streetpass (see below).


Each time a stage is successfully completed, a player is rewarded with a fixed number of Coins. For main stages, this is generally 100 Coins, with repeat clears obtaining an additional 30 Coins. Special stages will sometimes reward additional Coins, including as a stage clear bonus, with repeat clears sometimes only rewarding 10 Coins. Coins can be spent on items in-game.


If StreetPass is enabled for Pokémon Shuffle, whenever the player StreetPasses another player with StreetPass enabled for Pokémon Shuffle they will share data with each other. The player will be added to the StreetPass tag log, which will display their most recently used Pokémon, their total playtime, their number of stages cleared, their number of Pokémon caught, and their number of previous StreetPass tags, as well as the time they were last StreetPassed.

Additionally, the player will receive rewards based on the number of StreetPass tags they have had.

Number of Tags Reward
First StreetPass tag 1 Jewel
5 StreetPass tags 1 Heart
Every 10 StreetPass tags* 1 Heart
Every 100 StreetPass tags before 10,000 tags total 1 Jewel

Further rewards are earned if the same system is met via StreetPass multiple times in a row. These rewards are in addition to any earned for the total number of hits.

Tags Reward
3-4 1 Heart
5 2 Hearts

Finally, if there are no StreetPass tags received in a long enough period, more rewards may be earned upon receiving a new tag. This is in addition to any rewards earned for the number of tags. It is currently unknown if this resets the counter of multiple tags from the same system in a row.

Days between tags Reward
 ?? 2 Hearts

Expert stages are unlocked based on the number of main stages the player has achieved S-rank on. The player cannot access any expert stages until they complete Stage 12. All expert stages are timed stages rather than move-limited; times are expressed in minutes and seconds.

Special stages

Special stages are downloaded during the check in process, and can only be played during the event period. All special stages use "SP" as their stage number. They have a first clear payout of 200 coins, in addition to any bonuses given out for clearing the stage.

Launch Special: Meet Mew

At the game's release, the list of Pokémon included 158 Pokémon (both genders of Meowstic and all forms of Rotom share the same Pokédex number). Immediately upon launch, special stages were available for those who completed the first 11 stages of the game. This Mew stage was the first such stage, extending the list to 159 entries.

The original event ran from February 18 to March 8, 2015 and gave 1000 Coins upon defeat, once per day. The event was extended as "Mew Strikes Again" and limited the 1,000 Coin bonus to the first completion only. The second release retained the original stage name.

Great Challenge

"Great Challenge" is the stage name of numerous Legendary and Mythical Pokémon event stages. In all such stages, there are different rewards given for the initial stage completion regardless of capture, with varying catch rates and move limits. In all cases, the stage can be played as often as the player wishes provided the player has Hearts available in play. There is no additional bonus granted upon successive completions of the same stage.

To celebrate 3.5 million downloads, Celebi was made available from April 27 to May 18, 2015 with an event called "Celebi Enters!". Players received 1,000 Coins upon their first successful completion of the stage; there were no bonus rewards for further completion.

While there were no bonus rewards for further completion on the same day, prior to v1.2.1, beating it the first time on subsequent days rewarded the player with another 1000 coins. The wording of the notice attached to the stage and the fact that it was changed in v1.2.1 suggests that this was a bug.

Meowth's Coin Mania

A special stage called "Meowth's Coin Mania" can be played once per 24 hour period for which it becomes available. This Meowth cannot be caught. While a ranking for the stage is displayed upon completion, it was not displayed again afterwards.

The initial period of availability was from February 21 to March 15, 2015, available on both Saturday and Sunday each week. On March 21, 2015, its availability was extended indefinitely. Starting from version 1.2.1, the stage is only available once each Sunday, with "Tons of Exp. Points" available on Saturdays.

Large numbers of coins appear in the stage at the beginning, while others fall into the stage from above during gameplay. If the player clears a combination (several groups in one move), this triggers Meowth's "disruption" whereby more coins replace tiles currently in the stage; this in turn can trigger an immediate coin match and possibly another combo, meaning multiple "disruptions" can occur without the player using any moves.

The stage disappears upon completion until it can be played again.

Meowth Meowth Normal 10 0 Available until May 24, 2015 on Saturdays and Sundays, and only on Sundays since May 31, 2015

The Daily Pokémon

The Daily Pokémon is an event that takes place during the week (Monday to Friday). Each promotion offers a different set of Pokémon that can be caught every day during the length of the promotion. The stages are not available on Saturday and Sunday, during which another event is possibly run.

Thus far, there have been four Daily Pokémon events.

The Daily Pokémon (#1)

The Daily Pokémon (#1) was available for download from February 18 to March 20, 2015 and from May 4 to May 16, 2015. This promotion featured all of the variants of Rotom, each with its own daily stage. All variations of Rotom in this event had the same initial catch rate and move bonus, and all stages gave a limit of 15 moves.

With the May 4 re-release, the first clear of each stage rewarded 200 Coins instead of the usual 30 Coins.

Pokémon Safari

The Pokémon Safari was a special series of five 3-Pokémon stages that had the player randomly battle one of 5 different opponents when accessed, not telling the player which they will be battled until it appeared. Due to the nature of the stage in not indicating which Pokémon would appear, it was impossible for players to optimize their teams with the Optimize button, requiring players to select a team manually before accessing the stage. The stage was initially available from April 20 to May 2, 2015. A second version is available from June 22 to July 7, 2015, featuring a different set of five Pokémon.

Complexity -1 was not available on these stages as there were only three Pokémon involved.

One chance a day!

On May 7, 2015, a special stage featuring Pinsir became available from the earlier 1.1.11 update. This stage, released as the "Seize Hold of Pinsir" event, was unique in that it could only be played once a day over a four day period, thereby limiting the player to only four opportunities to catch it over the duration of the event. If a player were to accidentally reset the 3DS after committing to playing the stage, the stage would not reappear until the next period of availability. On July 6, 2015, "Jump on a Chance for Jirachi" provided the Mythical Pokémon as the second once-a-day for four days, expiring on July 10, 2015.

Tons of Exp. Points

On May 30, 2015, a new regular event stage featuring Victini became available with the event "Exp. Points from Victini!". The 7-move stage provides an opportunity for the player to catch the Mythical Pokémon, but also operates in the same mechanic as "Meowth's Coin Mania" and "One chance a day!" in that the stage disappears after being played at any time during the 24-hour period of its availability. Players can obtain a massive experience boost from playing of this stage.

The stage is available every Saturday for 24 hours (Saturday 6:00 AM to Sunday 6:00 AM UTC time).

Escalation Battle

Escalation Battle is a stage that has many levels and special rewards to it. It stars a single Pokémon who both gets stronger and provides a higher difficulty level using an associated stage level, also providing higher catchability over time. The catch rate is equal to the stage level, and there is no move bonus for moves remaining.

There have so far been two releases of Escalation Battle in the game.

There were set rewards at various levels:

  • Stage level 5 rewarded the player with 1,000 Coins (Giratina) / a Moves +5 (Cresselia).
  • Stage level 10 rewarded a Disruption Delay.
  • Stage level 30 rewarded a Mega Start.
  • Stage level 50 rewarded a Mega Speedup.
  • Stage level 100 rewarded a Mega Speedup.

At stage level 100, the final stage type was triggered on any future playings. It is not known if further rewards were given after stage level 100.

There was no capture bonus for any remaining moves in these stages. All items were available with the exception of the first four levels, where Disruption Delay could not be used as there were no disruptions.

A minor glitch occurs where, once the starring Pokémon is captured, no Poké Ball appears on the stage icon in the special stages area.

There were seven types of stages confirmed in the Giratina event.

The Cresselia difficulty escalations are similar to the Giratina ones, however instead of blocks, Cresselia's disruptions are mainly Barrier-type ones. Levels 35, 55, 75, and 95 are exceptions, with the stages being full of coins, as well as Cresselia using coin-type disruptions.

An Evolving Challenge!

Tepig became available for capture on July 6, 2015, with an announcement of Pignite becoming available in August 2015 included in the notice. While all Pokémon in the group of Unova starters have been added to the game list, none of the others have been confirmed.

Try 'em Items Stage

From July 20, 2015 to August 15, 2015, a special stage called "Wobbuffet Wobbles In!" provides a special opportunity to use items for free in attempts to capture it. The variety of items available is expected to be increased every Monday. At release, the only item available is a Mega Start. The stage is not available on weekends.

The event will see a second run from August 31 to September 12. It is presumed another event will take place in the period from August 15 to August 31.

The schedule for item availability in the stage is as follows:

Start date Items
Mega Start Disruption Delay Attack Power ↑ Complexity-1
July 20
July 27
August 3
August 10

To date, no other Pokémon have been announced for the stage other than Wobbuffet.

Competitive Stage

Various competitive stages have so far been featured in the game. The player battles a Trainer who uses a Mega-Evolved Pokémon, and has one minute (or a limited amount of moves in re-releases) to obtain as high a score as they can (the Pokémon has no HP bar and so cannot faint). The player must connect to the Internet to play in this type of stage. No experience is awarded upon stage completion.

When time expires, the player's score is uploaded to a leaderboard. From the Ranking menu, players can view the information of the five players currently on top of the leaderboard in their region, as well as their own high score, placement, and current Pokémon. A "CLEAR" indication and an "S" letter ranking are displayed upon conclusion of the stage like in all other stages, but the S ranking is not displayed again afterwards; this happens even if the player makes no moves for a score of 0.

When the challenge ends, prizes are given out to the top-ranking players in each region, with a fixed number of Mega Stone prizes given out for each region. All players who participate but who do not win the Mega Stone instead receive a Jewel. The Mega Lucario event advertised that all participants would get a Jewel including winners; however, only players who did not receive the Lucarionite received the Jewel initially (like future events), although a patch released shortly after gave Lucarionite winners a Jewel as well.

Only two items—Complexity -1 and Disruption Delay—are available for purchase before playing this type of stage, with the exception of the Mega Manectric competitive stage, where the Attack up item is available in addition.

On May 18, 2015, Mega Lucario's competition became available once again. As before, all who place in the contest receive a Lucarionite, but anyone placing who already owns one will receive a two Jewel bonus. The move limit was re-introduced for this event with a 20 move limit. The Mega Start item is also available for this event in addition to Complexity-1 and Disruption Delay. The competition was available again from July 13 to July 20, 2015, but with a different stage setup to begin.

On June 15, 2015, Mega Blastoise's competition became available once again. As before, all who place in the contest receive a Blastoisinite, but anyone placing who already owns one will receive a two Jewel bonus. The move limit was re-introduced for this event with a 17 move limit. The Mega Start, Disruption Delay and Attack Power ↑ items are available for this stage, but the Complexity -1 is not.

In the update to v1.2.0, updates were made to detect cheating in contest stage submissions in light of scores submitted during the Mega Banette competition.

List of Skills

Skills are Pokémon abilities that trigger either when certain conditions are met, or randomly, depending on the skill. If the player makes a move that completes two matches at once, the first match made will be the one to trigger its skill. Only one skill can be triggered per move, no matter how large the following combo may be. Skills will ony trigger in timed stages when the player makes a move if the match is not in the middle of a combo.

As of Version 1.2.0, the unused Skills "Fearless" and "Disrupt Buster" no longer appear in the search dropdown menu when searching for Skills (but they are still in the game data).

Mega Evolutions

Disruptions can be erased if they are in a tile targeted by the effect. Each Pokémon or disruption erased boosts the amount of damage dealt to the opponent, but empty tiles do not count. The Pokémon that make the match that triggers the Mega Effects are also erased before they can combo, but do not boost the amount of damage done beyond a non-Mega match. A Mega-Match and its resulting effect can take priority over other matches; to prevent this, the non-Mega match must trigger first by moving the icon to complete that match so the Mega match does not disrupt it.
