The Pokémon Duel Z-Powered Update is now available. This update brings a variety of changes and updates.
Firstly, Time Boosters reduce the time required before unlocking without gems now when you win a League Match.
Next, it has removed the Boosters from the game as well as the ability to purchase Gems and has implemented a new Player Pass sytem. This system costs $16.99 a month, in a monthly auto-subscription. This subscription comes with three bonuses:
- For every month subscribed, players can select any 6 figures to receive at no extra cost. This increases to 7 in the second month, 8 in the third, 9 in the fourth and 10 in the fifth. If you purchase the Player Pass before March 13th at 01:59 UTC, you’ll be treated like you have been subscribed for 5 months.
- Players get upgraded Monthly Point Rewards. Many figures including Mega Absol and Necrozma Dusk Mane & Necrozma Dawn Wings are exclusive to this.
- Players get discounts on purchasing figures.
- If a player signs up within the first 14 days, either from now or from when they finish the tutorial, they will receive a Celebi figure.
- As a startup, players figures and plates storage is increased by 1000.
In addition to this, there are two other purchase tiers. One is the 3-Day Duel Boost. For $9.99, you earn Double the monthly points, unlock as many Time Boosters as you want, increases the chance of Time Boosters (Rainbow) appearing by a factor of 10 and gives 500 monthly points. The other boost is the 3-Hour Duel Boost which costs $4.99. This gives an improved Enhancement Booster, you get 10 Monthly Points when you lose a League Match and you gain 150 Monthly Points.
The game has now also fully implemented Z-Moves, and for a while there is a special Login Bonus featuring a new Pikachu figure with an exclusive Z-Move, Castrstropika, which has a new effect. Solgaleo, Lunala, Dusk Mane Necrozma and Dawn Wings Necrozma all also have the unique Z-Move. Z-Moves are activated when the Z-Move Gauge is full and turns all segments of the wheel into the Z-Move. The power of the move is double the figure’s highest attack. All 18 type moves have got a Z-Move.
There are three special sets to purchase including Shiny Mewtwo figures. First is the Shiny Mewtwo Set which includes Shiny Mewtwo and 34 Gems for $6.99, a Shiny Mega Mewtwo X set containing Shiny Mega Mewtwo X & 70 Gems for $9.99 and a Shiny Mega Mewtwo Y set containing Shiny Mega Mewtwo Y & 70 Gems for $9.99.
