Last thread: >>24968237
I've been here since the beginning. Can't believe it's been almost a year. Almost a year that I've been playing shuffle every single day at least once, and when I'd been away from home trying to find a place with wi-fi so I wouldn't skip a day of checking in and losing those coins. I mean, I like the game and all but it's become something of a daily routine/habit that I doubt I could break easily...
Been here since the first shuffle thread and playing since day one. Thanks to this dead week it looks like this will be where I finally finish maxing out everything I feel is worth using, at which point I'll finally be free.
I'll throw another Garchomp on the pile. SE against 5 types, pretty good for combo-ing, *huge* speed difference in going mega between max candies and no candies.
I so agree with those spoilers. Been playing since the first mew event, not quite day one but pretty close to it. Currently back on the Meowth train, since I can't get jewtwo to give me it's shekels.

dedest of weeks
So where in the links can I find how many icons it takes to mega evolve each Pokemon? I'd like to try to make a comprehensive list and decide who benefits most from speedups. We should do something useful here along with all our shitposting :^)
pkparaiso would have it, but reddit already made lists
Kinda yep. Got Mew and Rotoms forms on 3DS but was really casual about it until I switched to mobile when it was released, was casual on that too initially, then got really competitive with a guy I had just met at uni who played and then I found these threads soon after, now my life is ruined. Only saw the guy a few times at uni in the first week, never again since...
Yep, another oldfag here. I enjoyed baiting collarfag once every week or so, more often than that it became tedious. I wonder if he's still playing. He probably can't even beat any of the newer levels.
So what if people don't need to pay any more? That's the whole point of buying the game. You pay once, get an unrestricted game and that's it.
Picross does it pretty well, where after you've spend X amount you get a ton of Picrites for free every day. They could easily do that here - pay for the game and get 5000 coins a day.
They make more money off microtransactions than selling the game. It's the reason they make them this way.
The difference between this and Picross or Rumble World is that this keeps getting updates, and you can't buy anything that gives you permanent rewards like unlocking new areas. You pay for only temporary goods that are consumed for temporary buffs. From a psychological standpoint it sells much better this way due to the few who will pay a lot rather than the many who will pay a little.
>Was finally able to fill out my s-ranks, catch the remaining Expert stage poke, and get my coins back up to an amount that's ready for new shit thanks to this "dead" week
Wouldn't have needed it if they didn't decide to dump fucking everything on us at the same time as that godawful keldeo event.
Spread that shit out, GS. You're not getting my jewgold, no matter how hard you try.
Is there a genuine way to kill the God Llama without item abuse?
176 MAXed Pokemon, everything available so far caught, and still going. Haven't missed a single event or spent a single cent.
If I knew from the start that it would've taken two fucking years to get everything I might not have played to begin with. But now that I'm halfway...
>megas, including potential ones with no stones yet
>every mon base 70 and above
>favorites or mons that seem like they'll be the most useful for current events
>the strongest ones at the time like Marowak
>ground types in general for support against Ampharos
>shitmons bases 30, 40, and 60 for Meowth coin grinding
>every shitmon I leveled above 1 along my neverending quest to endgame
It didn't seem like much to begin with then it just started adding up.
They're all fairly heavy hitters, I try to get it on to lowish damage before the last coin spawns.
>Putting yourself in that kind of situation
You're only doing it to yourself.
Granted having a good fighting like conk or ability like cc is better, I want to spice it up and need to level the birds
So I have to redownload the game as I did back when I got back in it?
Is this because of all the mexicans that were cheating during the gardevoir week? That was the last time I played I HAD to take a break
No, and even if there was it would only prevent check-in. Try turning you 3DS off completely and try again, if that doesn't work try the Repair download option in the eShop.
He said 3DS.
Why are mobilefags so stupid.
>implying they aren't
3DS has different games technically for different regions so they don't have to put that Japanese gambling addiction bullshit warning or a limit on how much you can spend in a day
What do you mean overall? Never worth it on any other stages, just when you're grinding exp.
>3DS has different games technically for different regions so they don't have to put that Japanese gambling addiction bullshit warning or a limit on how much you can spend in a day
the .cia for shuffle is for all regions the same. You can use HANS (homebrew) to start it in different regions and play it just as normal. There were a few anons that competed in the japanese competitions this way.
Also as long as you are under 18 years old you cant spend more than 50 bucks a week on shuffle. Its most likely for parent control. Its somwhere in the terms & conditions.
Fun Fact: you need to be at least 18 years old to get technically legal access to this game (NNID and eshop are 18+)
i think i got the game within 5 days of release, i play VGC and the community hyped it up. Have everything S'd and caught on 3ds rn, and max money. Not sure what to do because they didn't give us shit this week. Maybe try to beat some stuff without items.
Was doing Amphy grinding since i have not many MAXs, i don't know how people can stand it.
Don't talk that way about Jirachi, nigger. It has great base power, an excellent if situational ability, stands out visually from other steel types for timed stages, and is
Just bring Garchomp, even if he is at max. He makes it go by much quicker.
So when I got my NN3DS and did a system transfer from my regular 3DS, it corrupt my Pokemon Shuffle save file (I'm assuming since I had to switch to a micro SD).
That said - has anyone here managed to successfully do a system transfer between two NN3DS systems and keep their original Pokemon Shuffle save file? I'm worried about it corrupting again.

GOD FUCKING DAMN IT
- pick Pokemon that are visually distinct
- turn off power saving and turn up the brightness in settings
- focus on one side first, then switch to the other side, and so on
- try and get rid of barriers quickly
Collarfag was such a massive doublenigger faggot, but you're right. It was fun.
So have you guys found a good way to S Loudred, Galvantula and Exploud? They're the only ones I'm missing. Don't really want to shell out for the C-1s, but at least I got back up to 80k from the pony.
Im in stage 189 for the main game, but with all of these events coming out so fast, I never have enough time or coins to progress in the main stages, as I dont want to miss any events.
I finished this week's events already, but will be grinding meowth for the next set. Because of this, Im never able to play normal stages.
I am on the same stage as you but I don't have that problem. 10 days until next event line, just fucking progress on the main stages. Save up 30k coins, it's usually enough to get you through most event lines.
Game only picks the mons you have with the highest power, not necessarily the best for each situation though. For example, using Mega Mewtwo with only one other psychic pokemon doesn't seem like a very good idea. Don't you have Victini to use instead of Salamence?
And with certain stages like this, that prove to be difficult to even beat consistently, I tend to go all items (or all items besides C-1 if it's not absolutely needed) so I can beat it, catch it (using Great Balls if I have to) and S-Rank it all at once. At least Mega stages are a guaranteed catch, so you don't have to worry about great balls.
M-Mewtwo isnt good in this stage due to all the disruptions. I think I did it itemless with M-Steelix to remove those pesky blocks (M-Aero is weak against Medicham), Lugia (for godly Eject) and 2 SE. I got it itemless with 0 turns left. Also took some tries
Everyone was at Max
>all at the same time
after a while you only see orange.
Why do I always punish myself like this
My team used to be 2 neutral Po4+ mons, one ghost with non detrimental ability, one CC mon that isn't Gene or Heracross. It meant last turn there's practically always a 4 match for massive damage, and if I do dommage early I can match ghosts a while for very little damage. I maxed all neutral Po4+'s so now I'm onto Keldeo-R, neutral base 50, ghost, CC mon. Keldeo-R does over 600 damage on a po4+ so it almost always kills.
I know, didn't get this far by just hitting optimize each time, don't have to be such a condescending cunt giving such bullshit generic advice. And no victini, on mobile and haven't got it, comes up so irregularly haven't gotten lucky with it.
No Steelix on mobile, is Slowbro a good enough alternative?
shuffle maymays are best maymays :^)
he is SE which is good. Although you gotta get lucky with the disruptions. You need a strategy to get rid of those random blocks. Either sth like Dialga (to remove them) or sth like Absol (so they dont spam).
no, no... you shouldnt use both Dialga and Absol. Just one. Or someone else. Gotta make sure the disruptions dont fuck you up.
M-Slowbro can deal with them, but you gotta get lucky.
Medicham spams like every second or third turn 4-5 blocks. and thats really annoying and can fuck you up pretty badly.
Just try M-Slowbro, Lugia, Dialga and strongest SE. Check if you can get medicham till like 40-50%. If it works use shufflemove. If not, grind moar and/or use a different strategy
Not sure where to ask either here or ekx
Whenever I go into svdt and choose pokemon shuffle, it no longer takes me to the folder screen but it just crashes on a yellow screen.
Was this patched since the last time I played which would be around Nov?
>They dont own a 3ds, even if they tell you that they do; they dont
>dont keep up with the latest pokemon games and/or its pokemon
>for some reason we still support those shitters in these threads
/vp/ is for hardcore fans of the series; casual fans who maybe liked gen 1 or 2 and havent touched pokemon since need to get out.
I still wonder why noone removes the mobile shit pastebin. Update notes are fine since a 3ds player might be curious about what happens in the mobile version, but the /tGJgpWL8 one can go and stay go.
Why am I dumb for answering something no one else bothered to? Well, sorry I detracted from the riveting conversation of "mobilefag boogymen go away reeeee". No one was even talking about anything else in the last hour or so. You'd think that a thread as dead as this would want these minor questions so that the thread doesn't constantly hang on the edge of death. This will obviously go over your head, but hey, whatever makes you sleep better at night.
What else is there to talk about? If there was so much more complex things to talk about, why haven't you brought something up in the past hour? You're not making sense man. Your saying that mobile players are too stupid to look at the OP, and yet how do you think I got that answer in the first place?
I mean, isn't that supposed to be part of the process? Asking questions and getting advice, even for small things like this, isn't that what learning is all about? I just fail to see what he's going at. I fail to see how answering one tiny question, even during a time of discussion, detracts from the rest of the conversion at hand. You look at places like /vg/ and they usually have no qualms about small questions. But yeah, I'm looking too far into this I suppose.
Well, in order to start the conversation that one guy so vehemently wanted, what's your favorite Pokemon tile in terms of looks? I really like the ones that try and fit the whole body in them, like Altaria's.
3DS player, I want to catch the Dusknoir from the special stage. Last time I beat it I only got a B rank. I doubt that Mega Sableye, Absol, Litwick, and Purrloin
two of which are level 6, the other two of which are at level 5would be enough to help.
Ah, that makes a lot more sense. Looking at the S-Ranking guide, it looks like you'll need Duskull to make things easier, but I'm not sure if you have access to that one, because that's a Safari Pokemon.
this has got to be the angriest general i've ever been
it's fucking one of a kind to see a general in /vp/ that isn't full of furfaggotry but it manages to be one of the worst general existing on /vp/.
>Hey Guys look at me, I just started playing the game. Where can I grind exp?
>A question thats literally answered in the OP
>Why is everyone so mean here and doesnt answer my shitty question that could be answered by simply looking in the OP or a quick google search
>Y-you guys should be g-glad since I revived your shitty general.
>Why are you so mean to mean :(
It's always the same.
And this place can be pretty decent from time to time. But not if there are mobileshitters that ruin the fun for us all. This week is ded week. So there isnt much to discuss. Wait for Tuesday for the next update.
Nice meme. Stop trying so hard newfag and shitting all over threads. If you opened your eyes, you'd realize 3dsfags ask stupid questions too.
Mobilefags do ask stupid questions though.
>NVE on M-Medicham
Yellow screen crash just means try again
kill yourselfand spend it on a legitimate game instead.
Any way without C-1?
The only reason to use speedups over Mega Starts is if you plan on using that Pokemon a lot. So, essentially... anyone you'd use a lot or anyone that can return some coins on your investment.
In practice this usually means Gengar (for everything), Lucario (for Escalations), Garchomp (for Electrics, including Ampharos who isn't particularly hard but can become slow and repetitive), and Mewtwo (for weekend Meowth).
But honestly as long as you're not wasting them on normals, dragons, or Sableye, you can get away with whatever. They give out more speedups than megas worth using them on anyway.
tfw the first speed ups came out I used them on Sableye and Mawile.
I'm not THAT much of an oldfag, but I remember when they did the automatic download of shuffle to my 3DS I figured I'd give it a shot, found it was kind of fun and then found you guys.
Has it really been that long?
Not between two new 3DSs but I transferred my data from my old 3ds to my N3DS with no trouble at all. I also had a few precautions and was actually willing to go supreme if I got corrupted, just to get me back to where I was.
i've been here since the beginning
changed from 3ds to mobile midway when I spent 3 weeks traveling without my ds and lost some events, like the first manectric competition. I haven't missed anything in mobile yet
122 level MAX pokemon now!
Feels good that im slowly getting there. Although I start to run out of space with this tool
dont realy want to take 2 screens..
Well first of all 10 more stages.
+ Mega Rerun event and maybe some other special stage pokemon that we havent gotten so far; hopefully one of the gen 5 starters
Why do you have Moltres maxed but not Articuno and Zapdos? It's the least useful of the three. And why Throh instead of Sawk? Plus might as well do Entei, Suicune, Kyogre, and Keldeo-R.
Right now I have so many maxed, I dont realy need another 70 BP with a same-ish ability that another of my SE 70 BP mons couldnt solve. I mean Im going to level them sooner or later, but...
they are coming. right now doing every 70 BP | mon that I like | mon that could net me meme points in numerical order. Currently at Mismagius, I think the birds are next followed by the dogs. Not sure what comes after.
For Moltres it was back then to get a decent fire team running (i think). Throh because I always mistook sawk for Lucario in timed stages and that would confuse me.
Also not sure why I havent updated Kyogre in since I had it at 10 before FUG
All I want back is
Mega Lucarioor Mega Blaziken
New 3ds Update is live. It fixes homebrew entry points.
RIP SUPREME FAGS!! HAHAHA KEKED!!
I know they havent been relevant recently, but glad to see they will be gone from future competitions!!
Yeah because the supreme fags don't have 9.2 and 10.3 in the emunand that can actually be upgraded at all.
I'm totally not on 10.4 already with the ability to hack still
lets go back to hbg together and make fun of all those 10.4 WHEN fags :^)
I'm also on glorious 9.2 with 9.5 emunand (n3ds).
supreme fags only have access to homebrew
glorious fags have access to emuNAND
>Check in minutes ago
>Everything fine with 10.3
>mfw I can play without update to 10.4
>More main and EX stages
Thank god I spent the past couple days coin grinding to 90k. I still haven't beaten Deoxys tho and I still need to S rank about ten more stages. Was hoping for another dead week but oh well.
ZEKROM HAS BLOCK SMASH+ AND NOT SUPER BOLT
FUCK FUCK ABANDON ALL HOPE
So what the hell is gonna get super bolt? Arceus electric?
Took 11k coins, don't bother with DD it barely makes a difference. AP, and MS if you're not candied. Zekrom is base 80 electric with Block Smash+.
Shuffle 1.2.30: http://pastebin.com/ALRRjy6a
Mobile 1.4.6: http://pastebin.com/5ZNYyVrB
tl;dr: 40 new stages, stage 300 is mega rayquaza, 3 new ex stages, safari, zekrom, mega sharpedo+kyurem eb next week
Looking at the Pokémon list, we have:
He's keeping an eye on Deoxys.
>(Cherubi/Cherrim/Carvanha/Sharpedo/Spinda) Safari until 2/2
>Zekrom Great Challenge until 2/2
Zekrom is 80BP Electric with Block Smash+. Safari dudes are old. No idea what the main stages are besides Aron, Flabebe, Turtwig?, and Munna.
Mega Abomasnow is Ice
Mega Fug is Dragon with M-Mewtwo ability, 33 icons, 22 speedups
Kyurem is Ice with Po5+ as a 300 stage timed escalation
M-Sharpedo repeat comp coming, top 2k for NA or 1.2k for EU get speedup
When fully candied, it's effectively Gengar on steroids. Any time you'd use Gengar on a neutral or NVE, fug would be as good or better.
I don't know if that's worth twenty fucking candies, though.
I-Is Gliscor any good? I don't want my bro being a shitmon
>Gliscor, Ground, Base 70, Dex #419
>Ability: Rock Break+ (50%, 100%, 100%, other, Sometimes destroys three breakable-rock disruptions.)
All things considered he's probably the third- or fourth-best Ground-type after the OU friends and maybe Camerupt.
>loading failed your save data might be corrupted
>not even supreme fagging or anything like that
and bang goes that. Unless someone can post their save data bin since I haven't fully updated yet.
All I'm missing now is 'pedo
whats your favorite mega guys
>special stages will become main stages in the future
>all Pokemon in the past Safari's will eventually become part of the main stages
>all Mega competitions will eventually become main stage bosses
What would be the point of the special stages if this might occur?
>inb4 to have better 'mons against tough stages
Probably the only reasonable argument.
My new fav evo family
Why? 3DS and Mobile have the same amount of stages now, 3DS only has a few more 'mons because it came out first but they're both becoming the same thing aside from the item prices
Pros of mobile:
>have phone more often than 3DS
>can spend jewels on additional meowth runs
>some buffed abilities
>more bonus hearts than streetpass
Cons of mobile:
>multiple hearts/coins to play special stages
>nerfed coin grinding
>more expensive items
>nerfed crowd control
>no jewels after megas
>can't stockpile bonus hearts
>arbitrarily higher hp
>arbitrarily lower catch rates
Mobile players are shitters because they settle for an objectively inferior experience that's designed to fuck them over, and then go so far as to defend GS on their shitty practices by saying it makes the game harder so it's better. The only reason to play mobile over 3DS is if you don't own a 3DS, in which case you're missing out on so many games so much better than shuffle you'd be better off deleting this game, using the new free time to get a job, and buying arguably the best current gen gaming system.
>why do you care
I was answering a question. I'm not the original guy who said >playing mobile, just explaining. Saying "why do you care" when someone explains their point is retarded.
You don't need to be purposely obtuse. That person clearly thought you were the same person.
In any case, the mobile vs 3ds argument is pretty old stuff and we don't need to bring it up in every thread.
It's not like there's much else to talk about. Even today with like 40 new Pokemon, the events are all easy and most of the main stages are shitmons most people probably won't even reach until after we hit the limit anyway.
>I was answering a question
That last paragraph goes way beyond just "answering a question", though.
But I think I've seen that text before, so it's okay if it's pasta and you didn't actually type that out.
Thanks, I was just pointing out it differs between versions since nobody had mentioned it yet. Wasn't meant to be aggressive.
Not pasta, but I myself have probably typed a similar list in the past. Presenting evidence doesn't make an argument, it's the fuel for it. The paragraph at the end is the actual explanation of why someone would mock people for playing mobile, the list of pros and cons is just what justifies what follows.
Honestly just want to hit the limit faster so we can update this shit and be done. With how bad each set of 10 stages has been so far, I really hope this set of 40 is balanced to go from easy to hard like each update so far has been over its stages rather than all just being higher difficulty than the previous stage. Or if it goes from easy to hard in each set of 10 then resets, I'd be find with that too.
They continue Roseus Center, which has 60 stages in all. No idea what's after Mega Fug.
Is anyone else bothered by the fact that Chimchar is in the middle of Roseus Center and the other Sinnohs aren't in the 40 stages following it?
Yeah, twice as big as WW/PV/AT, six times as big as PB/SB/NF, and four times as big as the others.
We've got plenty of megas if they start demoting them like fug, but who knows if that'll ever happen.
M-Fug was never a competition though, only regular was demoted, and that only bumps up regular stage count, not megas. Yes they could demote comps after a certain number of reruns, but there's no precedent for that yet.
This brings up the question, how do you think this game will end? Before we were getting updates, M-Mewtwo was worthless as you had to S rank every stage to even unlock Mewtwo, so catching it and getting its mega didn't help with anything. Will that eventually happen again? What do y'all think?
>M-Fug was never a competition though, only regular was demoted, and that only bumps up regular stage count, not megas.
That's why I said fug and not mega fug. I'm well aware there's no precedent for competitions being demoted, but before today there was no real precedent for -anything- being demoted. So it should be possible, eventually.
The last update is a huge safari with all remaining pokemon where you're forced to use the last mega introduced, who is available in the last EX-stage and whose stone is obtainable in the last main stage.
Fair point. Would it in order? Like after X number of reruns you get dropped to main stages and they come as Lucario Blastoise Banette and so on? That would mess up with mobile order, though by the time they had enough reruns in 3DS they would be played at least once in mobile as a comp.
>tfw your favorite pokemon is hidden behind a wall of bullshit S-ranks
Don't fucking do that, you're setting yourself up to waste a ton of coins unless you get ridiculously lucky. Just bite the bullet and get a C-1, and a Blaziken Pyre team will beat it easily.
Joltik is the 5th mon on skyfall, if you bring it yourself the slot gets replaced with rocks so you constantly have them. If at any point you don't have them, then you should be open to make a good Po4+ match for lots of damage anyway.
bumping this, no derail this time please
Are you speaking from experience? I failed Galvantula a bunch of times trying to do it without C-1 then swapped in Terrakion and had a few moves to spare. Po4+ really makes a huge difference.
Guy who was initially concered here
Missed the S rank by a single turn because Joltik was still lv1 and couldnt get good damage. That said, combos were scarce until there was about 27 turns left so I can see where luck would factor in
2nd of February.
I feel ya bro, I was in the same situation last summer. Most stuff has gotten reruns, but I'm still missing Carnivine, M-Zard, M-Pedo, Emboar, Latias and Darkrai from then.
