Pokemon Shuffle

Pinsir was added to the list of Pokemon in Pokémon Shuffle in May 2015. By the time the first Pinsir event came in May, there was only one Super Effective Mega, Aerodactyl, with an AP 60. Pinsir's event repeated in September 2015 for those who didn't catch Pinsir in the May running.

Pinsir has 70 AP, and can only be used more as their Mega if the Mega Stone comes in the game. It is currently unknown.

Pinsir ran for a third time in February 2016; and the event started on the 17th and ended on Charlie Kimball's 31st birthday.
