Nintendo 3DS' "Pokémon Shuffle" received an update as creatures from another Pokémon game for the same platform had landed.

According to a report from Gamespot, creatures from the role-playing video games "Pokémon Sun and Moon" were added to the free-to-play puzzle game. With the update, players can now enjoy new stages that are based on the Alola region found in "Pokémon Sun and Moon." The update means players can also get to catch Rowlet, Popplio, and Litten who all appear in the said Pokémon iteration.

The Pokémon Company clarified, however, that the three monsters will be available for capturing only for a certain period of time. Litten is currently at large up until May 9 while Popplio will be live beginning May 9 until May 23. Meanwhile, Rowlet will become available starting May 23 until June 6. In addition, the company also announced that players who will log in to the "Pokémon Shuffle" game between May 2 to May 30 will be gifted the Alolan Vulpix creature.

In other news, WWG reported that the next Global Mission for "Pokémon Sun and Moon" has already begun. This month's mission tasks players to collect Poké Beans from a location called "Poké Pelago," which is a set of islands where Pokémon creatures can be trained passively, explained the report. The creatures, however, are those that are not included in the active list of the players' teams.

Moreover, players would also need to collect at least 3 million Poké Beans, which should be completed before May 8, which is the mission's deadline. In the event that players get to succeed in the mission, they will be rewarded with 2,000 festival coins; and should they fail, they will only get 200 coins.

As for the "Pokémon GO" mobile game, developer Niantic Labs confirmed that they already have 65 million active users since the game was released last year. "We continue to be inspired by the passion of the 65+ million people from around the world playing Pokémon GO each month," said Niantic in a "thank you" post.
