Pokemon Shuffle ending service in March 2023
According to Serebii, it has just been announced that Pokemon Shuffle, the free-to-play 3DS eShop Pokemon puzzle game, will be ending service on March 31 2023. For the sake of clarity, this is exclusively affecting the 3DS version; no announcements have been made regarding the mobile versions of Pokemon Shuffle.
Even with the game’s online service ending, you’ll still be able to play through Standard Stages and any Event Stages already downloaded. What will be disabled, however, is the ability to acquire daily login bonuses, play Ranked Stages, and download Event Stages.
This news doesn’t come as a huge surprise given prior announcements of the Wii U and 3DS eShops ending purchases on March 27, 2023. If you want to be able to experience Pokemon Shuffle’s Event Stages on 3DS in the future, make sure to download them in the coming months.
