That point aside, the music is cheery and not overwhelming, it’s cute and nicely animated, and the “recharge” time for another play session is brief enough that it’s fully playable without any financial commitment. I don’t think it’s necessarily the best of the freemium bunch, but it holds its own as a minor time-waster. This won’t satiate the hunger for the next full incarnation of the series, just provide an added distraction while watching old episodes of the animé.

Pokémon Shuffle is a fantastic match-three puzzle game marred by an uncharacteristically sleazy suite of microtransactions, and your ability to enjoy the former will hinge directly on how well you can ignore the latter. As a game you can pick up and play for a few times each day, Shuffle is a blast - the methodical, move-based matching action, fun implementation of Pokémon powers, and appealing presentation all make for a top-notch puzzler. If you need something you can play for hours at a time, however, your best bet is to ignore the in-game shop altogether; take the money you'd spend on an afternoon's worth of Jewels, put it towards Pokémon Battle Trozei instead, and let the endless supply of Poké-puzzles tide you over between Shuffles.

You in no way need to spend real money on this game, and having limited resources I believe added more value to your decisions. The fact that I spent 30 hours on Pokémon Shuffle to date and still have a few Pokémon to master speaks of the game’s addictive nature, and while nothing incredible, Pokémon Shuffle is a title I can see myself going back to for a while.
