Resource events are an unofficial class of special stages in Pokémon Shuffle that allow the player to reliably obtain certain items or resources (Heart Shuffle.png hearts, Coin Shuffle.png coins, or experience). These events fall broadly into two types: weekly and monthly. Both versions can be played without spending a Heart, but after the first play, these stages become locked and can only be played further by spending Jewel Shuffle.png Jewels to unlock them. After a certain number of plays, these stages disappear.

For the game's end-of-service period, resource events began running consistently during each week or month. Weekly events, which previously cost Heart Shuffle.png Heart ×1 to play, would no longer cost Hearts, and the amount of plays unlockable with Jewel Shuffle.png Jewels would be increased from 9 to 14 for the Eevee and Victini stages. Magearna and Alolan Meowth would be retired from the format, and become available through escalation battle and Pokémon Safari events, respectively, instead.

Each day begins at 6:00 AM UTC, and each week begins on Tuesday at 6:00 AM UTC.

Weekly events

Currently, it is Saturday, Apr 20, 09:41:33 AM UTC

Skill Booster M Stage!

The resource event featuring Eevee.

Skill Booster M Stage! (Japanese: スキルパワーMゲットステージ Skill Power M GET Stage) (previously "Skill Booster S Stage!" until December 18, 2016) is a special stage featuring Eevee which, if cleared, will allow the player to obtain one or more Skill Booster Enhancements.

This stage is available from Tuesday to Thursday of every week.

It is guaranteed to drop at least one Skill Booster SML.png Skill Booster M, and has a chance to drop up to two more per play:

  • 100% chance to drop Skill Booster SML.png Skill Booster M ×1
  • 25% chance to drop Skill Booster SML.png Skill Booster M ×1
  • 12.5% chance to drop Skill Booster SML.png Skill Booster M ×1

Drop rates can be increased if the Drop Rate Increase.png Drop Rate Increase (DRI) effect is purchased from the Special Shop.

A Chance for Coins

The resource event featuring Meowth.

A Chance for Coins, also known as 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 the player to obtain a large number of Coin Shuffle.png Coins in a single stage. This Meowth has an unlimited amount of HP, and thus cannot be "defeated" or caught, nor does it grant any experience.

This stage is available from Friday to Sunday of every week.

Coins appear in this stage as a 5th Support Icon, meaning that Coins will appear pseudo-randomly among the other Support Pokémon on the initial board and in the skyfall. If the player gets a combo of 3 or more, Meowth will disrupt and replace three or (less frequently) five non-Coin icons currently on the board within two adjacent columns with Coins. Since this disruption does not rely on a countdown, if the disruption causes another combo of 3 or more, Meowth will disrupt repeatedly.

After the first attempt, which does not require any Heart Shuffle.png Hearts to play, the stage will become locked; Jewel Shuffle.png Jewel ×1 may be spent to unlock 3 more plays for the stage for the week, and the stage will disappear after the 4th attempt.

Tons of Exp. Points

The resource event featuring Victini.

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 amount of experience points in a single stage, as well as a chance to catch the Mythical Pokémon Victini.

This stage is available from Friday to Monday of every week.

After the first attempt, which does not require any Heart Shuffle.png Hearts to play, the stage will become locked; Jewel Shuffle.png Jewel ×1 can be spent to unlock 1 additional play, up to 14 times for the week. The stage will disappear after the 15th attempt.

Monthly events

Start-of-Month Challenge

The start-of-month resource event.

Start-of-Month Challenge (Japanese: 月初めチャレンジ Start-of-Month Challenge) is a type of special stage that runs from the 1st to 3rd of each month. In it, one of five Pokémon will appear randomly with an equal encounter rate. Each of them is guaranteed to drop Enhancements, Coin Shuffle.png Coins, or extra Heart Shuffle.png Hearts as long as the stage is successfully cleared, with the kind and amount dropped differing for each one. Since all of these Pokémon are scripted to be caught during the tutorial, the player is guaranteed to be eligible for the item drops.

After the first attempt, which does not require any Heart Shuffle.png Hearts to play, the stage will become locked; Jewel Shuffle.png Jewel ×1 may be spent up to 4 times to unlock it for one additional attempt each, and the stage will disappear after the 5th attempt. Each Pokémon can be encountered once per run of this event.
