Pokémon Shuffle Content Update: Aug 9, 2016

Zygarde 50% Escalation Battle, Thundurus, Mew, and more await you!

The latest update for both Pokémon Shuffle and Pokémon Shuffle Mobile has gone live! The Mega Steelix competition has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean there’s a lack of content this week – far from it it! Zygarde 50% Forme returns for another round of Escalation Battle, another Pokémon Safari has begun featuring Garchomp, and much more!  Don’t forget about finishing up last week’s content before tackling this week’s stages and events!

Here’s this week’s Pokémon Shuffle content update for August 9, 2016!

Escalation Battle

Zygarde 50% Forme

Zygarde 50% Forme appears! In escalation battles, the stage level goes up every time you win. As the level increases, it becomes ever easier to catch Zygarde 50% Forme.

This event runs from now until August 23, 2016.

Great Challenge

Meganium Appears

Take on Meganium here! Don’t miss this chance to defeat and catch this powerful foe. Consider bringing Torchic from main stage 14 along for this battle. Using an Attack Power ↑ might also give you a better shot at beating and catching this tough Pokemon!

This event runs from now until August 23, 2016.

Mew Appears

For a limited time, the Mythical Pokémon Mew appears! We recommend Mega Sableye! Get Sableye in Stage 24 and get its Mega Stone, Sablenite, from main stage 30. Don’t miss this chance!

This event runs from now until August 23, 2016.

Kyogre Appears

Take on the Legendary Pokémon Kyogre here! Don’t miss this chance to defeat and catch this powerful foe. Why not give some Electric-type or Grass-type Pokémon a try? Using an Attack Power ↑ might also give you a better shot at beating and catching this tough Pokémon!

This event runs from now until August 23, 2016.

A Great Chance a Day

Thundurus (Incarnate Forme)

Once per day, beginning at 06:00 UTC, you can play this special stage to face Thundurus Incarnate Forme. Thundurus will become a little bit easier to catch with each day that goes by, so don’t give up on catching it before the end of the event period! Consider bringing Excadrill and Hippowdon along for this battle. Using Attack Power ↑ items and Mega Starts might also give you a better shot at beating and catching this tough Pokemon!

This event runs from now until August 16, 2016.

Pokémon Safari

In Pokemon Safari, the Pokemon that show up change every time you play. In this safari, you have the chance to battle and catch Gible, Furfrou, Staryu, Starmie, Gabite, Garchomp, and Phione! Though some are harder to meet than others! There is no Optimize in Pokémon Safari. It’s up to you to pick the most powerful Pokémon, so choose your own dream team. Why not give some Grass-type Pokémon a try?

Do note that Phione has a roughly 1% chance of appearing, so be prepared to spend some quality time in the Safari before you can nab it.

This event runs from now until August 23, 2016.

Try ‘Em Items Stage

Carnivine Appears

Carnivine’s Try ‘Em Items Stage is here to try! In this stage, you can use items without using any of your Coins, allowing you to easily experience for yourself what they can do! Use this chance to give ’em a shot!

This event runs from now until August 23, 2016.


I’m definitely going to be focusing on the Safari, Escalation Battle, and Thundurus this week.  Maybe we’re getting a Mega Garchomp competition soon, since Garchomp’s in the current Safari…
