How To: Hack Pokémon Shuffle for Unlimited Coins, One-Hit Kills, & More

Hack Pokémon Shuffle for Unlimited Coins, One-Hit Kills, & More

While we still do not have an official mobile port of a traditional Pokémon game, The Pokémon Company has released a mobile version of their hit Pokémon Shuffle game which was formerly exclusive to the Nintendo 3DS. The game is similar to matching games like Bejeweled or Candy Crush, but with a fighting element similar to a regular Pokémon game.

Now even though you should try to progress through the game regularly, I realize that some of you are just trying to "catch 'em all," and the quickest way to do that is through the use of Castix's Pokémon Shuffle Patcher.

The patcher enables hacks like unlimited coins, max catch rate, instant mega evolution, and a few others that will make your journey up the stage list much easier. Unfortunately, there isn't a way to unlock free gems or hearts, so you will be stuck having to wait for those to replenish normally.

This is only for jailbroken iOS devices, so Cydia is a must. You will also need a file manager like iFile installed as well, since the patcher is not hosted on an official repo and must be installed manually. (You can also try iFunBox as a free alternative to iFile).


This patcher comes with a background process that prevents the game's servers from detecting you are running a jailbroken device, so you don't have to worry about getting banned that way. However, if you use any of the hacks during a special event or submit any of your scores for a contest, it is very likely you will be caught, so use your best judgement when applying any of these cheats.

You should also know that this will not work on a fresh installation of Pokémon Shuffle, so complete the in-game tutorial before attempting to use any of the hacks.

Step 1: Install Patcher

Open the Pokemon Shuffle Patcher download link on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch, click "Download," then select the option to "Open in iFile." After iFile opens, select the option for Installer and the DEB file will be automatically installed.

Step 2: Enable Hacks

Now that the patcher is installed, go to Settings -> Pokémon Shuffle to see the list of available hacks. Once you have selected your desired hacks, make sure you kill Pokémon Shuffle from your app switcher if it's running in the background, then reopen it.

Step 3: Enjoy

You should now see all of your cheats take effect and you will no longer need to worry about things like buying coins or running out of time on those pesky expert stages.

(1) Unlimited Coins enabled, (2) Max Catch Rate enabled.
