Pokémon Shuffle event cycle

As of Pokémon Shuffle version 1.5.7 (3DS)/ ??.??.?? (Mobile), most special stages run on an automated 24-week schedule, set to repeat through 2037.

Overview

The 24-week schedule began on February 13, 2018 at 6:00 AM UTC, starting with week 1. The day increments every day at 6:00 AM UTC, and the week increments every Tuesday at 6:00 AM UTC.

  • Note that Shuffle does not account for daylight savings time, and therefore uses time zone offsets according to standard time. Therefore, if a player's system is set to daylight savings time, then the day will increment at 5:00 AM UTC instead.

However, certain events are not subject to the 24-week schedule, instead occurring on specific days of the week, month, or year.

This week

Currently, it is Thursday, Feb 22, 08:03:56 AM UTC.

This is part of week 3 (Feb 20, 06:00:00 AM - Feb 27, 05:59:59 AM) in the cycle.
