Pokémon Shuffle

If you’re looking for more content in Pokémon Shuffle, you will soon get what you want! In the latest issue of the Pokémon Fan magazine, a new update for the game is detailed. We learn that some new content is coming on July 26th (next week), and will include the following:

  • 50 new main stages, including one featuring Mega Tyranitar
  • a special stage featuring Hoopa Unbound
  • the special stage featuring Zygarde 10% Forme stage will be back until August 9th
  • the special stage featuring Ash-Greninja stage will also be back, but from August 2nd to August 16th
  • the special stage featuring Mew will be back from August 9th

But that’s not all! From July 26th, players will be able to take advantage of a special Checkin Promotion, giving them Skill Swappers and Raise Max Levels.

Pokémon GO

As announced on Sunday, Pokémon GO is now available in Canada. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the game will be launched in any new country today…

Pokémon Sun and Moon

As mentioned previously, a Pokémon Ga-Olé disc for Magearna is being distributed at the latest Pokémon movie (Volcanion and the Ingenious Magearna). On it, there’s a QR Code for Magearna, which can be scanned in Pokémon Sun and Moon in order to unlock it.

That QR code is particular because it’s region-locked… but it’s not unique, which means that all fans who received the Pokémon Ga-Olé disc got the same QR Code. In other words, even fans who didn’t get one will be able to scan the QR Code (which can most likely be found on the internet already).

Talking of Pokémon Sun and Moon, here’s a better picture of the Solgaleo and Lunala figures offered with the game at GAME (in the UK):
