Pokemon Shuffle Rewarding Players With Bonus Jewel After Glitch, Plus Special Event Details

Pokemon Shuffle landed on the 3DS eShop for both North America and Europe last week but stumbled into a hiccup during launch. Fortunately, players who downloaded the game and were unable to create extra data by “checking-in” can now do so and will be rewarded with a bonus jewel as an apology from the eShop team. And given jewels are particularly hard to come by during the game, unless paid for via a micro-transaction, make sure you spend your freebie wisely.

Additionally, Pokemon Shuffle has begun its series of daily events and special challenges. From now until March 9, players can catch a rare Mew and battle it in the special challenges mode to add it to their team. Players can also fill up their coin pouch with Meowth’s Coin Mania challenge from Saturday to Monday until March 16, but will only be able to play once per 24-hour period. And finally, Pokemon Shuffle is offering up a special Rotom daily challenge, where you’ll be able to catch either Frost Rotom, Heat Rotom, Wash Rotom, Mow Rotom, and Fan Rotom on different days with unlimited play until March 21. Are you enjoying the Candy Crush stylised game? Let us know in the comments below.
