Pokemon Shuffle Mobile is coming soon to Android


Pokemon Shuffle

While we’re waiting for Nintendo to bring some of their iconic franchises to Android, The Pokemon Company has been testing the waters with mobile titles of their own. Back in February the company launched a theme-ing app called Pokemon Style for Japan, followed by Pokemon Jukebox only last week.

Today, The Pokemon Company uploaded a new trailer for Pokemon Shuffle Mobile, coming soon to both Android and iOS later this year. Pokemon Shuffle is a free-to-play title that initially launched for the 3DS back in February and has since garnered more than 4.5 million downloads. It’s match-3 gameplay seemed like the perfect fit for mobile so really, it doesn’t surprise us that it’s finally coming to Android and iOS. We expected as much.

Players choose a lineup of Pokemon to fight others, matching 3+ heads to attack wild Pokemon they face in their journey. Once enough damage has been dealt and the opposing Pokemon has fallen, players can make an attempt at catching it with a Pokeball (your odds increase with the amount of moves you have left over).

Like Candy Crush or other free-to-play games, players looking to keep the game free will have to wait for their hearts to refresh in order to keep playing. Pokemon Shuffle does give players the option of purchasing jewels with real world money (of course they do), which can be exchanged for coins and hearts. Prices range from 99 cents all the way up to $48 for 75, so depending on your addiction, things can get rather expensive.

Still, we’re sure many of you will have no problem taking daily breaks in order to keep things free. Some might even take it as a challenge. No exact date on when we can expect Pokemon Shuffle to hit our mobile devices, but we’ll keep you updated.

I've been obsessed with consumer technology for about as long as I can remember, be it video games, photography, or mobile devices. If you can plug it in, I have to own it. Preparing for the day when Android finally becomes self-aware and I get to welcome our new robot overlords.

  1. This, then, is what Nintendo Wii become. Just another, pay-to-win freemium publisher.

    Oh, well.

    PS: Just to let you know, their Google Play email address is not correct. Contacting them via that will bring up an auto-reply, telling you to go to another site and repeat your problem again, due to the people on the other end of the email for the ENGLISH version “only speaking Japanese”.
