Pokémon news (April 6th): Pokémon Shuffle Challenge, 3 million downloads worldwide

Pokémon Shuffle

Today, a new challenge featuring Blastoise was made available for Pokémon Shuffle around the world. Similar to the one for Mega Lucario, it allows you to get a Blastoisinite: to get it, you need to rank among the top 10 000 players in Europe, top 20 000 plyaers in North America, or top 50 000 players in Japan (if you don’t, you’ll simply get a Jewel). You have until to April 13th at 05:00 UTC to play and get the best score possible.

To access this new challenge, you need to update the game to version 1.1.8., by using the in-game check-in option.

But that’s not all: it has just been announced that Pokémon Shuffle has been downloaded over 3 million times, worldwide. Two weeks ago, we learned that it had reached 2.5 million downloads, which means that the game now has over 500 000 additional players since March 23th!

Shiny Charizard

A little reminder for UK players: the Shiny Charizard event is now live since Friday, and until April 19th. By going to one of the GAME stores across the country, you can get a serial code allowing you to download a special Shiny Charizard (holding a Charizardite Y). As noted by Serebii, you need to update Pokémon Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire to version 1.3 before you can use the code.
