Pokémon Shuffle is basically the 3DS game ported over to mobile, probably to find more profitability from the casual mobile audience. A reminder of Pokémon Shuffle’s basic info:

In Pokémon Shuffle, your goal is to clear various stages by lining up the same Pokémon and clearing these matches from the puzzle area. Within each puzzle stage, you can deal damage to the wild Pokémon you face by lining up three of the same Pokémon to clear them. Battle and try to catch the Pokémon before you run out of moves!

Each stage in Pokémon Shuffle provides you a limited number of opportunities in which to move your Pokémon around. There is no time limit, so you can take as long as you like to study the board.  To clear each stage, you’ll have to reduce the HP of the wild Pokémon you face to zero within a set number of moves. Use all the strategies and tactics available to you, and learn to read the board to spot future matches. Clearing Pokémon efficiently is the key to winning Pokémon Shuffle’s many stages!

The announcement came with a trailer that you can find below:
