Pokemon Shuffle’s First Passcode Released, Plus New Event Details

Game Freak and Nintendo’s free-to-play eShop title Pokemon Shuffle has updated with new events today following its downloadable patch last week. Along with new events, the match-3 game has introduced its first worldwide passcode. Players will have to enter a short code on the settings screen under “Passcodes”, where you can enter the following number and obtain two Mega starts for your Pokemon team: 20150007. So if you’ve been in a spot of trouble lately, the two mega starts – which allow specific caught Pokemon to mega evolve before the battle begins – will help players to clear some of those pesky higher levels.

In addition to the passcode, new events have also been added. The Pokemon Company has extended the Mew event until March 23, which is lucky for players who have been nabbing the daily 1,000 coins from it. Plus, alongside the daily Rotom events, players can battle and capture the legendary Kyogre from Pokemon Alpha Sapphire until March 23. You’ll also unlock a jewel the first time you complete the battle, too. Let us know if you’ve been enjoying the free-to-play game in the comment section below.

Pokemon Shuffle Version 1.1.1 Update Now Available To Download

Pokemon Shuffle has been updated to version 1.1.1 on the Nintendo 3DS eShop. The free-to-play puzzle game – where players must match 3 or more Pokemon of the same kind to progress through various levels – must be updated in order to obtain jewels from in-app purchases and play daily events. Players must update their game through the Nintendo eShop and redownload the 686-block title. Once downloaded, players will be required to check-in via the internet to initiate any daily events or special stages.

Version 1.1.1 is due to fix any bugs or issues that may have cropped up during gameplay, and must be downloaded to participate in any real-time events. Pokemon Shuffle has reportedly been privy to a recent 3DS browser hack, which allowed users to bypass the game’s microtransactions, though has since been resolved by the latest 3DS firmware update.

Nintendo 3DS Firmware Update Now Available

Nintendo has just released a new firmware update for Nintendo 3DS owners. It is version 9.5.0-23U and I’m afraid it is just a stability update. As if the Nintendo 3DS wasn’t stable enough. So yeah, sadly there’s no additional features with this update but make sure you download it.

  • Further improvements to overall system stability and other minor adjustments have been made to enhance the user experience

Thanks, Matthew
