Yeah, I'll likely have to chuck some coins at Regirock too - he's got too much HP to go down without some items, I reckon.

Thanks to S-Ranking one of the new stages, I unlocked and caught EX 'Mon #21, Genesect!

Well done on that. I still need more S rankings just to get Mewtwo. Well, at least I have caught all of the new Pokemon, so I can go back and work on them.

I'm making great progress on this now. Getting close to Mega Aerodactyl, I think. Caught Zapdos the other day without aid, too. Currently doing a bit of grinding for Regirock. Being on holiday and not having reliable internet, I've been grinding Meowth and have accrued 37,000 coins in a handful of days. Grin

Good to hear you mastered the Meowth for the coins. Although, less Pokemon Shuffle more naked sun baking man, you are on holidays! Wave

I've got to the end of the new lot - now to go back and actually catch them all! Rolling Eyes Now, not to give Nintendo ideas, but... if they wanted to maximise the revenue from Shuffle, shouldn't we be made to pay a bit of money for these extra levels? It's all too generous for an F2P game (not a complaint, just an observation!).

There's probably more money to be made from releasing the levels for free but increasing the difficulty. I reckon people would be more likely to buy coins and whatnot to help them beat the new levels than to drop a couple of quid on buying a set of new levels. I personally wouldn't shell out for new levels.

I caught them all within 6 hours of them being released, but that is because I threw some coins at them (tried them once without items and if I failed, then I just used items next try). I just wasn't in the mood to wait. Now I am levelling the better new ones up and getting the coins back. Braixen was a tricky one until I realised that a Mega Start with Mega Aerodactyl took care of the blocks and it was beaten in one turn, with about 89%. Once I discovered that, I stopped being puzzled by it.

I agree on the generosity. I have played so much of this game, had so much enjoyment and it hasn't cost me a cent. It almost makes me feel guilty - almost. I would really love to see exactly how much money it has generated for Nintendo, or the lack of.

I'm still working my way through these new levels - had to spend some time grinding coins for a couple of Regirock attempts, but got the blighter soon enough.

Finally unlocked Mewtwo on the EX20 Stage tonight. That made me happy, but I have thrown coins everywhere to get to that point, so I will need to grind a little while before having all but one Pokemon.. Not that I mind. Getting EX21 Genesect may take a little while though, as I need 35 more S-Ranks. I need to get the money back up for the next online challenge, which based on history, is probably next week. At least grinding is more than money, it is also about levelling up the better Pokemon.

Almost got enough coins for a Steelix attempt, and then it'll be onto catching the few 'Mon I missed in this batch of levels.

But what challenge will it be?  I now have everything but Genesect on my main console, so it is nice to just level up, get coins and start getting the rest of the S-ranks I need.  It means any time there is a challenge, I am ready for it, no matter the Pokemon involved.  The other 4 consoles not so much.  2 are close to everything, but the other 2 started late, so there is still a lot to catch - they are one at risk of losing any online challenge, yet oddly, the one with the least Pokemon got the highest score on the last challenge.  Go figure.

EDIT:  So the online competition is Mega Lucario.  Didn't we do that already?  It allows you to do it even if you have won it already, so what happens if you win again?  Does it tell you to stop being a greedy arsehole?   DAMN YOU!

Luckily 2 of my systems don't have Mega Lucario, so I just need to finish in the Top 15,000.  As it stands, I have one at 17th at 24,000ish and the other at 21st at 22,000ish.  Disappointed, I wanted to see my name in the Top 5, but that started already at 31,000ish. Now I will jusr sit back and watch my placement tumble and only do it again if necessary.

You get two Jewels if you place and already have the Lucarionite, apparently. As it's the only challenge I've missed out on so far, I'm fairly happy.

There is also a new set of daily Pokémon to catch. I nabbed the first one on a 20% rating! Shocked

Good to know.  I will give it one shot much later then.  I have attempted Girafarig 25 times and caught it once.  Law of averages is shit.  I refuse to use an item so I am just going to keep going on the other 4 consoles until it is caught.

EDIT: All Girafarig caught, time to move on. Dance

Blimey! I've just posted 31906 - which put me in 48th position! Shocked Thank heavens for the switch to a move-limited round rather than a time-limited one.

If that's not alright to leave, I'll be sorely disappointed. Back to the daily 'mon for me.

That is a very decent score indeed. Even my 24,000 is enough for me to confidently leave, so you are certainly safe. Ir was nice to not do time-based for a change. Funny thing is, instinctively, I started playing it the very first time as if it was. I couldn't understand why they weren't moving for me. That's a senior's moment for sure. Whistle

Kecleon day today, already done and beaten. It was much easier than Girafarig.

I chucked in a score of 9000 odd, more to pick up the free Jewel than anything else. If I place and get another jewel, then that's a bonus.

Back to grinding coins for a Steelix attempt... Aww!

Considering I will never win an online competition on this, for giggles I picked the worst possible team I could and played to get the absolute lowest score I could manage. Well, I managed a score of 768. Pretty bad right? Well it seems I am not the only one with the idea of getting the lowest score. No idea what that lowest score was, but I ranked 98974/98987! Holy crap, 13 people got a worse score! Like I said, they surely had to be trying to play that bad. Smile
