Pokémon Shuffle updated to Version 1.5 with new features

Posted on February 26, 2018 by Jason Nason

Pokémon Shuffle has recently been updated to version 1.5. The update beings with it a variety of new features.

The update includes a new Trainer Rank system that gives you various rewards based on the number of Pokémon that you have captured. These include Mega Speedups, Raise Max Levels, jewels, and Mega Stones. There are a total of 30 Ranks.

The update also adds daily check in bonuses which cycle through 15 different gifts. These include Hearts, Moves +5, Exp. Booster S, Skill Booster S, Mega Start, Disruption Delay, Exp. Booster M, Raise Max Level, Exp. Booster L, Time + 10, and a Jewel in day 15.

Finally the new update allows you to unlock future stages with Jewels. So if you’re stuck at a level and can’t seem to beat it, like I was at one point, you can skip over it and keep playing.

Pokémon Shuffle recently celebrated its three year anniversary and several rewards have been distributed. These include three jewels, Legendary Pokémon Suicune and Mewtwo, a skill swapper and Raise Max Levels enhancement, and Pikachu (Fired Up). You’ll have to hurry though as these rewards are only available until February 27th at 1am ET.

Detective Pikachu is on the way

Posted on February 26, 2018 by Jason Nason

Nintendo’s latest Pokémon spinoff title Detective Pikachu is nearing its March 23rd release for the Nintendo 3DS. In the title you must team up with the self-proclaimed “great detective” Pikachu to solve a puzzling case involving oddly behaving Pokémon, discover a possible connection to the mysterious Mewtwo and encounter many characters in Ryme City.

Ryme City is a place where people and Pokémon live together. But recently, many friendly Pokémon are behaving oddly for no apparent reason. While Pikachu and his friend Tim search for Tim’s father, Harry, they unwittingly stumble into the mysterious case of the problematic Pokémon. Can they solve the mystery and also find Tim’s father?

While many different Pokémon appear in Detective Pikachu, the one who seems to hold the biggest connection to the overall mystery is Mewtwo. How is Mewtwo connected to everything? And why does Mewtwo seem to know Pikachu?

Along the way, experience over 150 fun-filled animated cutscenes starring this unique, wise-cracking Pikachu and a charming cast of curious characters who may help you on your investigation. You can also tap the new, extra-large Detective Pikachu amiibo figure to access all cutscenes up until the current chapter played.
