Pokémon Shuffle Content Update: Aug 16, 2016

Mega Garchomp Competition, Typhlosion, Lugia, and more await you!

The latest update for both Pokémon Shuffle and Pokémon Shuffle Mobile has gone live! The Mega Garchomp Competition is now underway, and a host of familiar faces including Lugia and Suicune await your challenge.  There’s still a few challenges from last week still running, so don’t forget to do them before they’re gone!

Here’s this week’s Pokémon Shuffle content update for August 16, 2016:

Competitive Stage

Mega Garchomp Competition

The Mega Garchomp competition stage is now live! Aim for a high score in this fast-match competition and rank against other players around the globe for a shot at valuable prizes including the Garchompite used to Mega Evolve Garchomp!

This event runs from now until August 23, 2016.

Great Challenge

Typhlosion Appears

Take on Typhlosion here! Don’t miss this chance to defeat and catch this powerful foe. Consider bringing Milotic and Aurorus along for this battle. Using an Attack Power ↑ might also give you a better shot at beating and catching this Pokémon!

This event runs from now until August 30, 2016.

High-Speed Challenge

Lugia Swoops In

The Legendary Pokémon Lugia appears! Can you defeat this powerful foe in a strictly limited amount of time?! We recommend Mega Ampharos! Get Ampharos in main stage 130 and its Mega Stone, Ampharosite, from main stage 105. Using an Attack Power ↑ might also give you a better shot at beating and catching this Pokémon!

This event runs from now until August 30, 2016.

Special Challenge

Suicune Appears

Take on Suicune here! Suicune, which appears in expert stage 15, can be found in a special stage! Don’t miss this chance to defeat and catch this powerful foe. Strengthen Suicune to prepare it for the Mega Garchomp competitive stage!

This event runs from now until August 23, 2016.

Daily Pokémon

Here’s the lineup of Pokémon appearing each day this week:

  1. Tuesday: Wynaut
  2. Wednesday: Torkoal
  3. Thursday: Zangoose
  4. Friday: Luvdisc
  5. Monday: Seviper

This event runs from now until August 30, 2016.


I’m definitely gunning for Lugia and Mega Garchomp this week.  I’m happy I’ve got Suicune maxed-out with its Ability swapped, as it’ll likely come in handy for this competition.
