Pokémon Shuffle Celebrates 4 Million Downloads With A Shaymin Event


Pokémon Shuffle, the free-to-play match-3 Pokémon game on the Nintendo 3DS, has reached 4 million downloads. In celebration of the milestone, a special Shaymin event is being held within the game.


As part of the event, the mythical Pokémon Shaymin will appear for a limited time (until June 15th). Players will receive 1,000 coins for completing the event the first time around.


While download numbers for Pokémon Shuffle are revealed on a regular basis, the number of downloads for The Pokémon Company’s other free-to-play 3DS title, Pokémon Rumble World, is not available.
