Special Stages (Japanese: イベントステージ Event Stages) are stages in Pokémon Shuffle that are released periodically, giving access to Pokémon who cannot normally be found in the course of the game. There are a variety of Special Stages including Competitive Stages, where players can compete to win special items, in addition to many other types of stages making new Pokémon available for capture.

Special Stages are available for those who complete the first 11 stages of the game, and 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. Stages are available to be played from 06:00 UTC of the first day of the event period until 06:00 UTC of the last day of the event period.

Pokémon Shuffle and Pokémon Shuffle Mobile run events on different schedules. Unless explicitly noted below, all events are only for the 3DS version.

Commemorative Events

Launch Special: Meet Mew

Launch Special: Meet Mew (Japanese: 発売記念イベント ミュウ Launch Event: Mew) was the first Special Stage, extending the list of Pokémon from 158 to 159 entries. Mew's stage format on the second release would later be followed for the "Great Challenge" series as well as for the various releases celebrating game download milestones.

Mew's original event ran from February 18 to March 8, 2015 and gave 1,000 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. To this point, Mew's original event and Shaymin's stage are the only ones outside of weekly events to offer multiple first-time rewards for stage completion; since both stages were either patched to change this or run again later without it, this was presumably a bug.

To celebrate 5 million downloads, Mew was once again made available alongside Diancie; the event was called "Mew Manifests". There were no differences in the stage itself, with the launch wording still used, but the stage name was changed to "Commemorative Event".

On Pokémon Shuffle Mobile, Launch Special Stage (Japanese: 配信記念ステージ Distribution Commemorative Stage) was a Special Stage initially playable from August 24 to September 28, 2015 to commemorate the game's mobile release. In it, Mew was made available to Shuffle Mobile players with an initial reward of one Jewel. Similar to Pokémon Shuffle, it was extended under the name "Mew Strikes Again" and allowed players who completed the original Mew event to receive an additional Jewel.

3.5 Million Celebration

3.5 Million Celebration (Japanese: 350万DL記念イベント 3.5 Million DL Commemorative Event) was a Special Stage released 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.

4 Million Celebration

4 Million Celebration (Japanese: 400万DL記念イベント 4 Million DL Commemorative Event) was a Special Stage released to celebrate 4 million downloads. Shaymin was made available from May 25 to June 15, 2015 with an event called "Shaymin Enters!" Players received 1,000 Coins upon their first successful completion of either stage.

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.

4.5 Million Celebration (Japanese: 450万DL記念イベント 4.5 Million DL Commemorative Event) was a Special Stage released to celebrate 4.5 million downloads. Manaphy was made available from June 22 to July 6, 2015 with an event called "Manaphy Manifests!" Players received 1,000 Coins upon their first successful completion of the stage.

Commemorative Event

Commemorative Event (Japanese: 記念イベント Commemorative Event) was a Special Stage first released to celebrate 5 million downloads. While the milestone was reached on the 3DS version, the stage was also available on the Mobile version. Diancie was made available from September 14 to 28, 2015 with an event called "Diancie Is Set to Dazzle!" Players received 1 Jewel upon their first successful completion of this stage.

Mew's launch stage was also released alongside Diancie's stage under the "Commemorative Event" name. The stage data matches that from the previous version of the stage seen in February 2015.

Celebi's special stage was later released on both versions to commemorate Pokémon Shuffle Mobile reaching 4 million downloads. Players received 1,000 Coins upon their first successful completion of this stage.

Mewtwo's special stage was later released to celebrate Pokémon Shuffle Mobile reaching 5 million downloads. Players can use items for free, but only get 20 coins for the first clear and 10 for subsequent clears.

Great Challenge

Great Challenge (Japanese: スーパーチャレンジ Super 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.

The Hoenn Legends Stages (Japanese: 映画公開記念ステージ Movie Public Commemorative Stage) were a series of stages where the Pokémon of the weather trio were made available again from July 24 to September 3, 2015 for the Japanese release of Hoopa and the Clash of Ages, with the available Pokémon rotating weekly. Rankings from each stage's first week are not carried over to the second week, and all first clear bonuses can be obtained once in both the first and second weeks of each stage.

In Pokémon Shuffle Mobile, all Great Challenge stages (except the Dusknoir stage) so far require 2 Hearts to be played.

The November re-release of Keldeo on the Mobile version intriduced the first instance of a coin cost per playing of a stage.

Other events released follow the format of "Great Challenge", but they do not use that stage name. These generally are released as celebration milestones or otherwise have unique stage names themselves.

Ultra Challenge

Ultra Challenge (Japanese: ハイパーチャレンジ Hyper Challenge) Special Stages are Special Stages which feature Pokémon which are more powerful than those featured in great challenge stages, with both released so far being the trio master of a Legendary trio which has been at least partially released by Great Challenge stages. For the first Ultra Challenge stage, Arceus was made available from July 10 to 24, 2015 with an event called "Arceus Arrives!" Players received 1,000 Coins upon their first successful completion of the stage. Regigigas was made available as the second Ultra Challenge stage on December 15, 2015, on both 3DS and Mobile; on Mobile, however, there was a playing cost of 32 Hearts per attempt on Mobile. Due to the design of the stage, Regigigas is considerably easier if the player includes Regirock, Regice and Registeel in their party.

High-Speed Challenge

High-Speed Challenge (Japanese: ハイスピードチャレンジ High-Speed Challenge) was a Special Stage where Lugia was made available from August 31 to September 24, 2015 with an event called "Lugia Swoops In!". It was later repeated in Pokémon Shuffle from October 26 to November 2, 2015. When the event was playable in Pokémon Shuffle Mobile from October 26 to November 9, 2015, it cost 2 Hearts to play. Unlike most previous Special Stages involving a single stage with the capture of a Legendary Pokémon, this stage is timed.

The Daily Pokémon

The Daily Pokémon (Japanese: 日替わりポケモン Daily Pokémon) is a special event that sometimes takes place during the week, beginning on Monday and ending on 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, which is usually used for other events that only occur on weekends. Clearing each stage for the first time in a release period rewards 200 Coins, with subsequent clears obtaining 30 Coins each.

Thus far, there have been five Daily Pokémon events for a total of 25 unique Pokémon (including all five Rotom variants). All events have run in a range from two to four weeks, with two having been re-released for additional runs.

The Daily Pokémon (#1)

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

The event returned for additional runs from May 4 to 16, 2015 and from August 17 to 29, 2015. As stage clear data resets with new event releases, players could obtain the first time reward again on each stage. With the re-releases, the first clear of each stage rewarded 200 Coins instead of the usual 30 Coins.

The event was made available for Pokémon Shuffle Mobile from August 24 to September 11, 2015.

The Daily Pokémon (#2)

The Daily Pokémon (#2) was available for download from March 23 to April 17, 2015. Unlike the first event, this time five unique Pokémon were made available daily with the catch rate and stage move limit also varying with each Pokémon available; this continued with future events. The Tropius stage also included Coins in the layout of the stage; if matched, the player could acquire a Coin bonus.

This release was available for a second run from June 8 to 20, 2015. The event was made available on Pokémon Shuffle Mobile from September 14 to 26, 2015.

Meowth's Coin Mania

Meowth's Coin Mania (Japanese: ニャースコインゲット Nyarth's Coin GET) is a Special Stage that allows a player to obtain a large number of coins in a single playing. The stage is only available once per 24 hour period for which it becomes available. This Meowth cannot be caught.

Large numbers of coins coins appear in the stage at the beginning, with more dropping into the stage during gameplay. If the player gets a combo of 3 or more, Meowth will use its "disruption" to replace tiles currently in the stage with Coins; this in turn can trigger an immediate Coin match and possibly another combo, meaning multiple "disruptions" can occur without the player using any moves due to a chain reaction.

The stage disappears upon completion until it can be played again. Pokémon brought into the stage capable of removing distractions will also remove coins from play. Meowth can also still be paralyzed or put to sleep.

While a ranking for the stage is displayed upon completion, it is 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.

Competitive Stage

Competitive Stage (Japanese: ランキングステージ Ranking Stage) is the stage name of a series of stages involving Mega-Evolved Pokémon. The player battles a Trainer who uses a Mega-Evolved Pokémon and must obtain as high a score as possible. By doing this, players can win a Mega Stone. There are two types of competitive stages: timed stages and fixed-move stages.

Players choosing to play a competitive stage select the stage like any other stage, and must agree to connect to the Internet before playing. Once a connection is confirmed, the player may select Pokémon and items as usual. During the stage, the Pokémon has no HP bar and therefore cannot faint. At the stage's conclusion, the player's is given a "CLEAR" indication and an "S" letter ranking, like in other stages; this happens even if the player makes no moves for a score of 0 in a timed stage. At this point, the score is uploaded to a leaderboard; on successive attempts, this is only done if the player scores a higher score than previous attempts. No experience is rewarded upon stage completion. The S ranking is not displayed again afterwards on the stage select screen.

On the stage select screen, after selecting the competitive stage, players may choose to view the Ranking screen, which is unique to this type of stage. Here, players can view the information of the five players currently on top of the leaderboard in their region, as well as the personal high score, placement, and Pokémon used to acquire that score.

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, or a Disruption Delay instead in the case of Venusaur and Banette's re-releases. Starting with Manectric's event, other prizes are given out.

Timed events

3DS

There have so far been twelve unique timed competitive stages. Timed stages appear for first-time releases and mark the first opportunity for a player to win the associated Mega Stone. No competitive stage has been re-released with a timer. The player has a set time in which to achieve the highest score possible. Timed stages usually have the Complexity -1 and Disruption Delay items as the only ones available, with the Attack Power ↑ item also being available starting with Manectric's stage. The Mega Gardevoir stage removed the Disruption Delay.

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.

Every timed event starting with Manectric's has also given a Mega Speedup as a bonus prize for scoring a very high score and placing in a much smaller range at the top of the leaderboard, attempting to give an incentive for players to buy items to get a higher score instead of taking a high first score and automatically getting the prize. Additionally, not everyone failing gets a Jewel; there are alternate consolation prizes for a small range outside of the leaderboard. The rewards for these competitions were as follows:

Move-limited events

3DS

So far, six Mega Stones have received repeat contests for participants who may not have acquired them before. These repeat contests did not use a time limit, instead using a move-limited setup. Therefore, players could take their time and plan their strategy without being rushed, which in turn could provide for higher scoring with a good strategy. The ranking range also is generally increased for these runs, allowing more players the opportunity to place and obtain the prize. Ranking would obtain the player the Mega Stone, with past winners in the ranking acquiring two Jewels. A one Jewel participation prize is still given to non-placing players. It should be noted that, during the Venusaur re-release, players only received the Jewel if they placed and already had the stone, and a Disruption Delay if you didn't place at all.

The first Mega Stone event to be redistributed was the Lucarionite, on May 18, 2015. The Mega Start item became available for this event in addition to the Complexity-1 and Disruption Delay. The competition received a third run on July 13, 2015, but with a different stage setup to begin; the only items available this time were the Disruption Delay and the Attack Power ↑ items.

The second Mega Stone to be redistributed was the Blastoisinite, starting on June 15, 2015. The Complexity-1 item was not available for this stage; however, the Mega Start, Disruption Delay and Attack Power ↑ items were available.

The third Mega Stone to be redistributed was the Vensauriste, with the stage available August 24, 2015. The Mega Start, Distruption Delay, and Attack Power ↑ were the only items available. These were also the items available when Mega Banette stage was repeated, starting October 19, 2015. Mega Manectric also has been run as a move-limited competition, on November 16, 2015.

Pokémon Safari

Pokémon Safari (Japanese: ポケモンサファリ Pokémon Safari) is a special series of five or seven 3-Pokémon stages that have the player randomly battle one of the different opponents when accessed, not telling the player who will be battled until it appears. There is no way to know which Pokémon will appear, leaving players to pick the best possible team to better their chances against any of the opponents. Due to the nature of the stage, the Optimize button is unavailable; players are required to select a team manually before accessing a stage.

Thus far, there have been four groups of available Pokémon in the Pokémon Safari making for 24 unique Pokémon found via this method.

Complexity -1 is not available on any of the stages due to being 3-Pokémon stages; all other items (including Attack Power ↑) are available for use.

Pokémon Safari Appears!

There were three releases of the Pokémon Safari that appeared under this exact event title.

First release

The Pokémon Safari debuted in the 3DS version from April 20 to May 2, 2015. This first release returned from August 31 to September 14, 2015. During the re-release, the Sharpedonite became available through a simultaneous competitive stage that ran from September 7 to 14, 2015.

During the initial run for 3DS, the Manectite became available through a simultaneous competitive stage that ran from June 29 to July 6, 2015. A similar event was done for Mobile

One chance a day!

One chance a day! (Japanese: 1日ワンチャン! One day, one chance!) is a stage that is only available once per 24-hour period, usually for a period of four days. Otherwise, the stage functions like any main stage other than the Attack Up item being available like for other Special Stages.

Due to the nature of the stage, 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. An interesting quirk related to this format is that the stage has a countdown daily, and if the Special Stages map was generated before the stage was played, the previous day's stage would say that it had expired and was no longer available, requiring a reload of the Special Stages map.

The event debuted on May 7, 2015 under the event "Seize Hold of Pinsir" in the 1.1.11 update. On July 6, 2015, "Jump on a Chance for Jirachi" became the second such stage. When the Pinsir stage returned on September 29, 2015, a Jewel was made available for clearing it on the 3DS version.

One Great Chance a Day!

The "One Great Chance a Day!" stages are a variant of the "One chance a day!" format. The difference is that the possibility of catching the target Pokémon gets better with each passing day; it was even possible to have a guaranteed Great Ball catch for players capable of finishing the stage quickly.

Tornadus and Thundurus were playable in both versions from November 9 to 16, 2015 and December 1 to 8, 2015 respectively. Landorus became available as Thundurus expired, on December 8 until December 15, 2015. Unlike the other two in the trio, Landorus featured a stage time limit instead of a move limit.

Tons of Exp. Points

Tons of Exp. Points (Japanese: ビクティニで経験値ゲット Victini's Experience Points GET) is a Special Stage that allows a player to obtain a large number of experience points in a single playing. The event "Exp. Points from Victini!" became available on May 30, 2015. 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.

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

Victini became available in the Mobile version as of update 1.2.4. While the stage data is the same, players can spend Jewels to have a second and third chance to play the stage each week. This seems to only be available on the mobile version.

Escalation Battle

050Diglett.png This section is incomplete.
Please feel free to edit this section to add missing information and complete it.
Reason: Latios event information.

Escalation Battle (Japanese: レベルアップバトル Level-Up Battle) is a stage that has many levels and special rewards to it. It always stars a single Pokémon. As a player continues through the stage levels, the Pokémon becomes easier to catch over time while the stage gets progressively harder.

There is no capture bonus for any remaining moves in these stages. All items are available with the exception of the very first levels in each group, where Disruption Delay cannot typically be used as there are no disruptions.

Five Pokémon have been released under the Escalation Battle name. Giratina was available from June 8 to 22, 2015, and Cresselia was available from July 20 to August 3, 2015. Darkrai became available from August 17 to 31, 2015. Latias and Latios both became available with their Mega Stones as prizes for defeating Stage Level 50 in their cycles; Latias was found from September 28 to October 12, 2015 while Latios became available in a special timed version of the Escalation Battle format from November 24 to December 8, 2015. During Latios' 3DS release, Latias became available for Mobile players to battle.

At some stage levels, a unique musical track named "BGM_STAGE_BOSS2" is played instead of the regular "BGM_STAGE_LEGEND" theme. This new track is unique to boss mode. During coin level stages, "BGM_STAGE_FUN" is often played instead.

Darkrai

There were thirteen types of stages for Darkrai.

The rewards for the Darkrai event were expanded significantly, with stage level 30's reward moved to stage level 25 and more rewards generally every 25 stage levels. The reward schedule was as follows:

Latias

The stage schedule again provided different stages over 200 stage levels, with one-time stages at stage levels 50, 70, 100, 150, and 200 being out of the numerical stage order. The data for each stage and the associated disruptions themselves, like with past events, varied by level. What makes this interesting is the HP at the varying levels; Latias has less HP at Stage Level 161 (10,752), for instance, than she does at Stage Level 61 (12,936).

An Evolving Challenge!

An Evolving Challenge! (Japanese: 進化チャレンジ Evolving Challenge), so far, appears to be an event focused on the starting Pokémon from the Unova region. The event debuted with Tepig on July 6, 2015; this was accompanied by an announcement that Pignite would be available sometime in August 2015. With the release of this event, all nine Unova starters (through evolutions) have been added to the in-game Pokémon list, though the Tepig family is the only one that has been made available at this time.

Rake In Some Items!

Rake In Some Items! (Japanese: アイテムゲットステージ Item GET Stage) is a Special Stage titled "Incredible Item Stage", where players faced Delibird to get items at various stage levels in the same vein as Escalation Battles. Despite being in a main stage, Delibird can be caught during this stage, with the same catchability rates as other escalation battles. It is currently unknown what will happen if the Escalation Delibird is caught before the Delibird main stage is completed.
