Pokemon Shuffle Discussion (Nintendo 3DS) [game]
 
7.79/10 from 7 user ratings

Welcome to the official discussion thread for Pokemon Shuffle on the 3DS!

To start, please add this game to your log, add it to your collection (if applicable), and (when you are ready) rate it using the link above!

So, how are you liking this game? I think it's fun. I'm playing it in small doses. I'm on battle 42 of about 159 (for now). I already got the Mew from a special event, too. I haven't captured all the pokemon I have battled. I'm focusing on moving forward and then coming back to catch them all. I AM making exceptions for those pokemon I can actually Mega Evolve.

By the way, how does this game compare to Pokemon Trozei? I haven't played that one.

So there have been another freakin' 30,000 participants...

I moved to just over 10,000th which makes me sad but I just beat my score and now I'm...

8,452 out of 130,863. Gotta keep in that top 10,000... that's the comfort zone.

What Pokemon are you using and what are your levels?

@sirmastersephiroth

Level 5s for the following Pokemon; Slurpuff, Azumarill, Mega Slowbro, Chimecho.

I don't use any coins. I might in the end to try and finish the scoring high at the end of the week. This morning my rank slipped to...

9,609 of 141,387. Damn that's annoying.

I can't seem to be able to break 20,000.
I suppose I'm not very great at this!

@ploot

Other than try and make sure you're always destroying two sets of tiles when you swap a tile, there's not much you can do. It's very much luck-based.

Man I suck at Expert. I just can't beat Moltres with a decent time.

Tried again tonight. Nabbed a higher score by a little. Sitting now at 8,425 out of 152,752. I wonder if Nintendo expected this big a turn out when they noted only 20,000 would win. Right now that's only 13% of people. Kind of lame to lock away content to only that small subset.

Just played my first session. So this is mobile gaming, eh? I can see the appeal. Seems like I could have 10 minutes of fun with this per day.

So if I leave it overnight do I have 5 hearts again in the morning? You guys seem to have gotten pretty far in the course of a couple weeks. Is y'all dropping any eshop credit on this bad boy?

@Super_Conzo

You don't have to leave it on. If you just check back every 2:30 hours, you'll have 5 hearts.

I finally cashed in all of my jewels for... 50,000 coins, or something? And then wasted a bunch on the Competition. I'm afraid to check my ranking. It was something like 8,500 a couple of days ago, though. Bleah.

Also, I've caught almost all of the Pokemon. I've gotta say, this game is much easier to play in short bursts than Monster Hunter 4!

Because everyone in the top 5 has him, I've been spending most of my lives trying to catch Xerneas. I've gotten close to beating him, but since I can't even do that within the time limit, I know I'm going to have a difficult time catching him...

I've dropped into the bottom 10,000 in my ranking for the contest, but I think I'm at 11,000-something, so I'm not too worried just yet.

@V_s

I did the same thing, and ended up getting lucky. With 3 seconds to spare, you get a 6% chance. I missed, got the super ball, and caught him despite the low 12% chance.

I'm at like rank 23,000, though.

Wasn't able to compete the past few days... still in the top 12,000 though. There's two days left. Hopefully things stay in my favor. I feel like next time they should raise the cap a bit on how many can win. Nearly 200,000 participants... whoa.

I agree. I think the cap should be raised (wait. Is it raised or lowered?) significantly. I'm sitting at 27,0000 something. I see little hope of getting it. And that means that I, as well as 90% of players, will be missing out until, and if, they decide to bring it out again. If they go the Injustice mobile route, it's no biggie, you can either pay for it later or wait a few months for a second chance.

@Guillaume - I managed to beat him, but I did so with 0 seconds to spare, so, predictably, I didn't catch him at 1%, and I didn't feel like spending 2500 coins to only have a 2% chance to catch him... And now I can't beat him again.

So I just learned that apparently the top 50,000 in Japan get a Lucarionite. I think it's strange that the number is so much lower for the west, given that it's such a bigger market.

I'm ranked 9,095 at the moment with a score of 13,054.

Screw Xerneas. And screw Zoroark. I've been trying to beat him for a week. I finally just ponied up for three sequential Great Balls. I didn't even know you could USE sequential Great Balls!

But I'm still at 12,000-something in the ranking. Whee.

@V_s

What Pokemon and levels are you using?
Posted: 03/22/15, 02:59:24
@DrFinkelstein

Level 6 Slowbro
Level 5 Azumarill
Level 4 Slurpuff

And a Level 4 Chatot is who I usually use for my fourth, but I've been rotating in a few others lately like Espeon (Level 1) or Togekiss (Level 1).

@V_s

Hmm, those are overall lower levels than mine but you have a better score. Do you use any bonuses at all?

Congrats on your placement!
Posted: 03/22/15, 04:02:46
No bonuses. I just got really lucky on my most recent score. I got up to 12,000+ earlier today with Togekiss, but I don't know if I'll be able to hit 13,000+ again before the contest is over unless I start using bonuses.
