List of items in Pokémon Shuffle

There are generally three different types of items in Pokémon Shuffle. One group applies to a specific stage and can be bought with Coins, mostly immediately before starting the stage. Another group has effects that apply to the whole game for a period of time and can only be bought with Jewels during Special Shop periods. The final group are called Enhancements and are applied to specific Pokémon as permanent improvements; these cannot be bought.

The player can store up to 99 of any item. The Great Ball and game-wide items can only be obtained by purchase and are used immediately, so it is impossible to hold any stock of them.

Stage-use items

 
The menu to spend Coins on items before starting a stage.

When the player selects a stage to play, the lower part of the screen will display an inventory of items that the player can buy or use to affect the stage when they play it. These items can sometimes be obtained as rewards for completing certain stages.

Each of these items has a cost in   Coins, but if the player currently has stock for an item that they previously obtained, the game will display the player's stock of that item instead of its cost. The stocked items will be consumed before Coin-cost items - the player cannot spend Coins on a specific item unless their stock of that item has reached 0.

  Coins ×3,000   Coins ×5,000 Attack power gets doubled. Certain special stages, and UX main stages.

Notes:

  • The items   Moves +5 and   Time +10 do not affect the stage's clear bonus towards catch rate, but they do positively affect the player's ranking (S, A, B, or C), and extend the duration of   Disruption Delay.
  •   Disruption Delay will last until the stage's moves/time reach half or below-half of the stage's maximum. If   Moves +5 or   Time +10 are used, then the amount of moves/time after adding them is treated as the maximum.

These items can be received from:

Great Ball

If the player fails to catch a Pokémon, they can try again with a Great Ball, costing   Coins ×2500 in the 3DS Shuffle or   Coins ×3500 in Pokémon Shuffle Mobile. Catches with a Great Ball double the catchability percentage. (This does not stack if multiple throws are made.)

Game-use items

These items can only be bought from the Special Shop, which only opens for limited time periods. These items cost   Jewels to buy. They are used immediately upon purchase, and affect the whole game for a period of time. Only one can be active at a time; while one is active, the player cannot buy any others from the Special Shop.

Special Shop

 
The special shop to exchange Jewels for timed effects.

Broadly speaking, the Special Shop is usually open for three weeks at a time (sometimes more or less), and usually has at least a month (sometimes more than two) between open dates. During its open times, the Special Shop's campaign is usually divided into consecutive 1-week periods. During each period, only a limited quantity of each item in the Special Shop is available; in the next period, the items are restocked if the player previously bought any. The Special Shop's openings are described in the following table.

As of September 26, 2017, the Special Shop has been made available indefinitely, with restocks occurring every week on Tuesday at 6:00 AM UTC.

Enhancements

An Enhancement (Japanese: グッズ Goods) permanently improves a Pokémon when used on it. Enhancements cannot be bought. They may be used on a Pokémon when selecting Support Pokémon for a stage, in the Pokémon swap menu. Using an Enhancement consumes it.

  • Not all Pokémon have alternate skills to be able to use this item.
  • If a Pokémon has more than one alternate skill, the player is given a choice of which skill to switch to. Each skill has its own Skill Level, so if a brand new skill is switched to, its Skill Level will be 1, but if a skill that was previously raised is returned to, it will retain its old Skill Level.

Enhancements can be received from:

Personalized Skill Booster

 
A personal- ized Skill Booster
See also: Skill (Shuffle), Drop (Shuffle)

Personalized Skill Boosters may also be considered an Enhancement, but unlike the other Enhancements, these cannot be held in stock to be used as the player desires. Personalized Skill Boosters only drop on certain stages, and if the player clears the stage and they have already caught the opponent Pokémon, they are immediately added to that Pokémon's Skill Gauge. A single personalized Skill Booster adds 1 point to the Skill Gauge.

They can be found in many special stages and many Main Stages starting at Main Stage 401.
