PTD: What's next? A list of new things...and we just keep growing!

SAD UPDATE: App was suspended from Marketplace....The good news is I will be moving it to the web a lot quicker! I will provide you with a link soon, once the update is done.

UPDATE: Level cap increasing to 20, tonight (Wednesday)! Level 6 will come in an update after that but this week also.

 This game just keeps growing and it's thanks to all of you, I haven't done any advertisement at all. The download stats from my Android Market Developer Console updated today at we have over 66,000 downloads! You guys made it happen, either you told your friend about it, or you twittered it, facebook, blogged on it. I just wanted to say thank you for the support! Also even if you didn't do any of the above, just giving it a good rating and a good comment goes a long way into other people deciding if they want to play.

Okay so lets get down to business.

First, the poll is finally closed (I need to make the next one shorter) and you have all decided that the current app icon stays! We had 1955 votes and 19% said hey it doesn't matter to me, 36% said change that sucker, but 44% said don't even think about touching the bulbasaur. So Bulba is here to stay. I will be adding a new poll very soon.

Now I want to talk about the next couple of updates. The level cap will be increasing to 20, so you can finally evolve more of your pokemon, and earn new moves for battles. So what I want to do is make a list here of what I need to do and how far I'm into doing it so that you guys can stay up to date on my progress towards the next update. If you see anything that is missing on the list that you think should be there just drop me a comment here on the blog or email me directly. Thanks.

  1. Bulbasaur - 4 new moves. (100%,done)

    2. Good luck on your test!

      Comments: Which generation are the movesets going by? The latest? If so:

      Squirtle has 3 new moves, Butterfree has 4, Pidgey 2, Beedrill 3, and Pikachu 2.

      Other than that, looking forward to everything!

    4. why why why i cant download this awesome game in market?

      ReplyDelete
    5. same here, I can't download it either...I'm on 2.2 Virgin 'Optimus V'
      =[

      ReplyDelete
    6. @Gemstone - The latest, any moves that are already done from previous updates I didn't include, I think pikachu is a good example, he learns quick attack which is already done.

      @Rainbowdish - If your phone doesn't support flash/adobe air then the game won't show up for you to download :(

      @Everybody else - thanks I'm going to need it, dealing with electric potential change, voltage, blah..

    7. Good luck on Tha test luv the game waiting on new levels this game is awesome I wanna see how mew nd sum other legendary pokemon look in this Cant wait lol

      ReplyDelete
    8. Thanks Sam,downloaded it first day. I've yet to find a developer who listens to his customers like you. And I'm being honest. I love the respect and time you take to reply to everyone's comments and how quick you update the game despite your real life and doing it by yourself you're doing a great job bro keep up the great work

      ReplyDelete
    9. Any idea why i cant catch pikachu? Will this be fixed?

      ReplyDelete
    10. @Jonathan:
      You can catch any Pikachu that appears in the level besides the 3 that appear in wave 10. The final 3 cannot go into a weakened state / "red-bar" mode so you cannot catch those.

      A absolutely love this game! It's design is original and all that great stuff. The only suggestions I have:
      -I'm using a myTouch 4G. I experience some slow-down when I move the screen during the game(Eg, to scroll around to see how everything's doing) Also, can I suggest a multi-touch feature to let you scroll out to see the full map? :)

      -Multiplayer suggestion: Attack/Defend type of thing. One player sends out pokemon, the other defends, or both work together in a larger map to defend against giant mobs/bosses.

      -Pokedex feature. Lets you see how many Pokemon are out so far, what maps they're on(excluding a few "rare/special" pokemon that might be added later on[?]) as well as info about them as you personally obtain the info. (Eg. Evolving levels, moves, etc. But only after you reach said levels, moves, etc.)

      -Items: I think this might be pushing it, but money should be able to invested outside of leveling the pokemon. Maybe like X-Attack or X-Speeds to increase damage/attack speed?

      -Moveset Combos: Eg. Rattata using Focus Energy everytime it runs out in order to hold onto the critical bonus. Or maybe to use leer->attack move->leer etc. to keep on the damage bonuses.

      Well, I'll post ideas as I come up with them. Great job with the game, and keep up the good work! :D

    11. Just wanted to say thank you for a great game going to give it 5 stars in the market and I've never rated anything but your hard work has earned it

    12. Oh to add to my comment I can't find a pikachu to catch apart from the ones yu can't. Catch I want one I didn't even use that thunder wave cheat.to beat brock lol this is my favorite android game

      ReplyDelete
    13. I'm still loving the game I play all day, same levels over and over! Is really like to name my pokemon!

      ReplyDelete
    14. Great game so far i love where its going. One thing i found is when you catch enough pokemon to fill up the box when selecting them for the levels, you can't scroll over to see all your pokemon. I had to release a bunch in order to see the ones over farther.

      ReplyDelete
    15. Hey Sam I wanted to say good luck. I like how. You do weekly updates it gives me the edge of what's going to be next.

      Some ideas I thought of for you game:

      Mabye a map to level up pokemon like a infintie wave mode.

      A pause button during a level to organize towers and moves

      With that I look forward talking to you in your blog. You a good inspiration to college people and I understand about personal lives so I hope you don't feel presured to rush on the updates.

    16. I want to play this game so bad but it's not supported on my LG Ally even though I have version 2.2. Pokemon? How could you forsake me?

      ReplyDelete
    17. Hi. this game is totally awesome. I really like thats its not complete too. The regular updates keep it fresh and exciting. I came here to suggest the pause button but I see halo2freak has aleady suggested that. Also some way of telling whick pokemon you're clicking on at the bottom because on the map they all look thsame when theyre the same pokemon i.e. all pidgy look the same. Maybe little numbers or coloured dots? Thank you so much for making this game

      ReplyDelete
    18. Just downloaded and im curious, is one version (red or blue) better than the other??

      ReplyDelete
    19. I love this game its so much fun. I can't wait for the next levels to come out. !! Hope its soon.

      ReplyDelete
    20. Just an idea for multiplayer... If you have ever played Warcraft III you could have both sides using towers and paying to send pokemon to capture rare candies on the opponents side.

      ReplyDelete
    21. Make the poke mart available with thunderstone i want to evolve pikachu. Also make a daycare mode i want to breed a pichu

    23. Hi Sam - I'm interested to see if we're a fit to partner for monetizing and distributing your apps. What are you currently doing there?

    24. Found this game today and already love it. It is a masterpiece and love where it is headed. I'll check the market daily to find updated on it. Thank you for such a great game guys.

      ReplyDelete
    25. Great games just want to level up past 10 can't wait for new levels

      ReplyDelete
    26. Somebody help I don't no how ro get a pikachu

      ReplyDelete
    27. @Max
      You have to play Veridian forest enough times until a pikachu appears before the final wave where three of them come at once. You will be able to catch any Pikachus that come before that wave. Good luck!

      ReplyDelete
    28. Thank you so so so much for this game. I am not ashamed to admit that I played it for over three hours (darn that pikachu) when I first downloaded it! I hope you are doing well and not getting overwhelmed with this much deserved high demand. Just wanted to add a suggestion if it's ok. Is there a way to make the Pokemon not blink red for a level up if you don't have enough money for it? Because especially in the beginning if you catch a lot before you accumulate a lot of money, it gets very distracting/misleading. Thanks again for doing this and good luck on your test.

      Looking forward to more!

    29. This game is so fun and cool u brought fun back into pokemon I hope there's more levels soon thanks for the game bro

      ReplyDelete
    30. Can u make more pickachu's appear plz it's kinda hard to not kill then when all ur pokemon r level 10

      ReplyDelete
    31. Just downloaded ur game and its amazing. Can't wait for update. I've notice one thing tho. Pikachu is a lot harder to catch on red version. Blue version I caught on first try. Red I had to play the level like 7 times before he was red. Thanks for the game. Please allow us to catch trainer pokemon like onix

      ReplyDelete
    32. Great game. I'm hoping you could post a list of what exactly the effects do and their duration. I understand some moves cause speed decline (thunder wave, string shot), but I'm a little unclear of specifics. Making a list would really help to clear things up and help players decide on future attacks.

      Looking forward to future updates and hope the test went well.

      ReplyDelete
    33. What is the mystery gift going to be.......is it going to be like once aweek or something we can get a special pokemon or item because I'm s little confused about that............oh and I hope u did good on ur test

      ReplyDelete
    34. Hey you have yourself a very fine game. I downloaded it when it became available in the beginning. I've been slowly following your small but efficient updates and I have to say, KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK...

      Side note. If you need any help feel free to send me an email :)

      ReplyDelete
    35. I love this GAME !!! ! ! ! ! ! i gave it a 5 star and ive never rated a game before. also I LOVE THIS GAME!!! ill wait for updates patiently. umm i love this game. keep it up !

      ReplyDelete
    36. I know its been mentioned..but I'd love stones to be available so I can turn my team of pikachus into raichus :3

      You've done an amazing job. I hope you rocked out your test! Absolutely can't wait for an update.

      Thank you so much for putting the time you have into this game.

      ReplyDelete
    37. The potential for this app is ENORMOUS. I can see myself playing for hours at a time without losing interest. What you've got here... it's magic, pure and simple.

      Keep up the good work!

      ReplyDelete
    38. Keep up the good work! This game is acually the first good one for Android, due to the frequent updates, simplicity, gameplay, nostalgia, story, epicness and... pokémon! The good thing is that it's really coherent with the orginal Pokémon games.

      I think I found a bug. I didn't notice someone mentioning it before. Bug: When you start up the game to see your save slots, the badge count still shows 0 badges, while I definitely beated the gym leader (like 5 times xD).

      If you need some help with artwork or with translating the Market Description into Dutch, please feel free to reply. Then I will send you my mail-address.

    39. Hey Sam,

      Hope the exam went well.

      I think in the pokemon select screen it might be useful to have the levels of the pokemon displayed over them.

      or

      If you do as divel suggest and allow naming, their names.

      Cheers,
      Excellent game

      ReplyDelete
    40. this game is so pure, pokemon is fun again. I just want more so bad that I went looking for my gameboy colour! Thank you for a great game!

      ReplyDelete
    41. @Tim
      Sam has mentioned that this isn't a bug, and you will receive the badge in the next level.
      I think it says it in his post.

      ReplyDelete
    42. why dont you add the pokemart in the next update and to start off put like X attack and other X items.

      ReplyDelete
    43. Hey all,

      Thanks for asking about the test, it went well! Took me and mostly everybody in the class about 2 hours to finish, and with these test you can never really tell how good you did. But I def passed it, I know that much.

      I read all the comments, I just wanted to say thanks to those of you that can answer questions for me (Keyser Soze, and Caled I'm looking at you) this really helps me out.

      I wrote down a lot of the suggestions here are a couple that I will try to get in the game.

      1. Naming pokemon. (Divel)
      2. Making the pokemon not blink red if you don't have enough money to level them (Rochelle)
      3. Have a way to connect who is on the screen and who you are clicking on (rollincontrol read his post)
      4.Zoom out function (a couple of people suggested this)

      ReplyDelete
    44. and i think i found a bug to when ever i try to catch a pikachu its health never turns red so i can't catch it.


      but thanks for your awesome game! looking forward to the update!

      ReplyDelete
    45. Hi, great game! I have some suggestions: *a pause feature.. *the game did not automatically pause when I got a phone call (when call ended, the round had ended) *zooming out
      keep up the excellent work!

      ReplyDelete
    46. Hey Sam. My name is Vince IV been a Pokemon player for years ur game is amazing I can't wait for more updates I know u wont dissapoint us.

      ReplyDelete
    48. @Corey S - When the level cap goes up, when you level him up to 11 you will be able to evolve again. Level cap will go up this week ;)

      ReplyDelete
    49. and can you do another one of those list of new this plz i want to see how far in the update u r. thanks for reading.

      i really hope you passed the test!!

    50. *list of new things coming up i ment to say

      ReplyDelete
    51. @Corey S - I will keep updating this list as stuff gets finished. So you will see it change as the day goes by.

      ReplyDelete
    52. I'm sure this has been asked before... but is it possible to get a PC version of the game using AIR?

      ReplyDelete
    53. @one of the anonymous questions. The last 3 pikachu on veridian forest will never be able to be caught. It is not a bug. You have to play the level several times until you find one earlier on in the level.

      ReplyDelete
    54. @Justin G - The game will show up on the web at some point but it won't be for a while.

      ReplyDelete
    55. ty soo much caleb

      ReplyDelete
    56. Hey I have a question
      If you level your pokemon up do they get stronger I know they get better attacks but do they do more damage
      Also good luck on test

      ReplyDelete
    57. Lol its Tuesday :) not Monday you already took it

      ReplyDelete
    58. I dont know how much pokemons attack increases but it definitely does. I used a level 10 and a level 5 pigey on rattatas in level 1. The level 10 pigey killed them all in one hit and the level 5 took two hits each kill. And i used tackle with both pokemon.

      ReplyDelete
    59. @Anonymous - They do gain stats just like the game actually, but I don't do EV or IV. So every pikachu at the same level will have the same stats. Hope this helps.

      ReplyDelete
    60. sam do you have an idea when the next update is, i dont care if your right or not i just want an idea.


      ty:)

      ReplyDelete
    61. just end th poll now weekly updates are going to win!

      ReplyDelete
    62. @Corey S - Update will be sometime this week. I sure seems that way, but I want to see how it plays out. :)

    64. Great game. Thank you for making it free too. It looks AMAZING lol. Im glad that there will be more evolutions. Fixing the game to keep my phone awake while playing would be nice as u said u r working on. I love the game and will be telling my friends about it today. Downloaded it just last night. Keep up the great work

      ReplyDelete
    65. Also I love that you post polls to see what your players want and like

      ReplyDelete
    66. Love the game, it gives me that old school feel of playing a pokemon game, really enjoying the original story line, and the simplicity of the game, i flew through the game thoughso i cannot wait for more levels, i was only saddened by the fact that my charmander stopped leveling up at level 10 and i couldn't evolve him to a charmeleon, but i assume the level cap will up along with new levels

      ReplyDelete
    67. Love the game but i have to ask. Why didn't you do the side route where you can catch Mankey, Spearow or the Nidorans? Could you go back and add that as a side mission?

      -S-Chronicles

      ReplyDelete
    68. One problem I noticed is when you select mute sound fx and mute music, some aspets still make sound, example when you lvl up a pokemon. So my question can there be a mute all button completly I like to play in class or library church ya know that kind of stuff

      ReplyDelete
    69. Perfect game, 5 stars, so great, etc. etc. blah
      I hope the test didn't destroy you as college exams are wont to do.
      I've been playing this game over and over and I've been leveling my pokemon to the cap and it still hasn't gotten old, so a huge kudos to you.

      I have a few teensy suggestions, but my biggest is the fact that any exp gained after you get a full exp bar is lost. For instance, when my level 8 Charmander is ready to grow to level nine (with the flashing icon, red arrow, etc.), all of the experience it would gain from flattening the legions of Caterpie coming down the road is not carried over into the exp bar of level 9. In other words, I can't just set up my pokemon and let the game run, because I lose tons of experience. :(

      Another small thing is the fact that I can't see any of the stats of my pokemon on the selection screen without having to look at each pokemon individually, and this makes it difficult to compare them and decide who to use.


      Sorry if these have been suggested before. (There are so many comments!)
      Thanks so much for the perfect game!

      ReplyDelete
    70. :warning:
      incoming long comment :c

      Been following this wonderful game since near start :) and I gotta say I love the interaction level between developer and players that I've seen so far :D and I just love following along with what's currently going on and anticipating what's next pretty much every day~ this game grew on me from day one and I can't wait to see how far it goes and im glad to say im here to go along on this adventure :D

      I have one thing tho. Could you later in maybe add a target function? Meaning clicking on a certain pokemon on field and when in range that will be the one your pokemon attack over any others on field

      anonymous? Bah call me Talash :)

      ReplyDelete
    71. Ok..... So, best app game I have ever played! I love it, bring on the updates! Haha, honestly better than angry birds or any other td game. I love this app keep up the good work!

      ReplyDelete
    72. Small issue - Pidgey's "Gust" attack lists a type, attack speed, and attack duration, but doesn't show an attack power. Is this a mistype issue or intended?

      ReplyDelete
    73. @Anonymous (you guys should put names in your post at least so I know who you are :)) - I notice that I put attack duration instead of attack power for some of the moves, thanks for pointing out the gust issue.

      ReplyDelete
    74. Hey Sam its cameren. You think well be able to battle or trade pokemon with each other

      ReplyDelete
    75. Here you go, I didn't realize you could put a name without an account.

      I'll repost my message.

      Love the game but i have to ask. Why didn't you do the side route where you can catch Mankey, Spearow or the Nidorans? Could you go back and add that as a side mission?

      ReplyDelete
    76. @Cameren - Yes, in the future (once you can get to a higher level).

      @S-Chronicles - The route you are referring to is coming up in the next couple of levels :)

    77. Another thing with the sound learning a new move and evolving doesn't mute so a all mute will be great thanks I know your busy

      ReplyDelete
    80. Also on the stage before virdian forest there is a placement issue the last spot by the candy doesn't reach the attacking pokemon, at this point it just sits there idle. So route 2 where andy helps you the last spot doesnt reach

      ReplyDelete
    81. Really wish there was pinch to zoom functionality but other than that I think it's awesome. By far one for the start games I've played on a cell phone. Can't wait for the update.

      ReplyDelete
    82. And I really wish that when you turn the sound off in the options, it would stay off even after you exit out.

      ReplyDelete
    83. Oh you can do this without Anonymous. I feel less Unknown now! (Ah crappy puns. Gotta love 'em.)

      Same thing as my way-up-there oversized post of suggestions. Anyways.

      The only problem I really have isn't with the game. It's with the website. It's just kinda hard to stay updated in my opinion. Perhaps a forum time of thing?

      Aside from that, keep working on the game! :)

      ReplyDelete
    84. More levels please please please please pleaaaaaassssse! When I was little, my neighbor stole my lime green gameboy color which had my pokémon red version inside. I need got it back or got over it. I NEED MOREEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!

      ReplyDelete
    85. I know this would be a looooooong time until this but would you make the later generations when you are done with this?

      ReplyDelete
    86. This is a cool like my yellow version I had for my gameboy but now a version for my Android keep it up

      ReplyDelete
    87. Congratulations on the game. I downloaded it yesterday and I already defeat the Pewter gym with all my pokemons at level 10. It is an excellent game. But I do have a couple of questions. Can Charmander evolve? Is the pikachu available in both versions?
      Thanks and again congrats on the game. loved it.

      ReplyDelete
    88. I would love to see pinch zoom to be able to see he whole field. Great game though. Can't wait for the update.

      ReplyDelete
    89. @Ana Luisa
      From what I see the evolutions that come with the to be coming level cap of 20 will be available when that update comes out, aka ivysaur, charmeleon, etc. And yes pikachu is available to be caught in both versions, but as previously mentioned you can't catch any of the three "boss" pikachu at the end of the level. You just have to wait for a random pikachu to come around, and if you're patient they will.

    90. First of all I love this game. I have two questions. 1. Are stats actual base stats? 2. Are you going to put stats on the selection screen?

      ReplyDelete
    91. @Tim P - I'm using the latest base stats, I might in the future if people really want them.

      @Sam - Pinch zoom, people seem to want it, I will try it out see if it works. Probably update after this one.

      @Aurarice - Yea it's getting pretty hard to keep track of comments, a forum would be nice.

      ReplyDelete
    92. The thing about this vote is I like fast updates but I play the gane for like thirty minutes if it was a big update I would probobly play for an hour our 2

      ReplyDelete
    93. @Matt reed - Yea it's tricky I want to add some new modes/levels that will take longer to finish.

      ReplyDelete
    94. Hey sam. I don't if my post are going through or not. I have a idea for your game.

      A pause button during missions to place pokemon

      A button to send next wave instead of a constant flow I have a feeling later in the game it migt get hard fight constant wave flow.

      A number counter o. How many pokemon are in each wave and how many are left.

      I love you dedication to respond hope to hear form you sam

    95. I have two things to say

      - Sound Mute - when you turn off the sound effects and music. three things still make sound 1. when you lvl 2. when you learn a new move 3. when you evolve

      - second in the Route 2 map the last spot above the candy is too far to attack pokemon. i noticed there are 2 spots next to that spot that can be used maybe you can slide that spot over two squares to the right

      :) thanks for all your hard work

    96. I mean Left two squares sorry typo

    97. @halo2freeky - Sorry if I missed your message before, you bring up great points, pausing to place stuff might make it a bit too easy.

      I might increase the time between waves if it becomes an issue with people. Not sure sure if I will stop the action until somebody decided to make the wave go.

      Last point, it might be interesting to put a counter. I will keep these in mind.

      @Brandon - I did see your post before but forgot to answer.

      Thanks so much for pointing out the specific cases that audio is not muted, that helps out a lot.


      Also good find on Route 2, I will take care of that.

    98. I've never played a better game on the android, I really seriously am in love with this game!<3 also as a suggestion I think a pokedex would be amazing,and being able to zoom out would help alot as well, the only small problem is that when you exit out of the game, it continues to run the round and music. Is this possibly done on purpose? Thank you for making my favorite thing to do during school, this could potentially become one of the biggest games on the app store! :)

    99. I have three things:

      1. Let the starter pokemon or six pokemon face Brooke.

      2. Make the app so It doesn't kill my battery so quick.

      3. Is the tading going to be from acc to acc or phone to phone?

    100. @coopmcknny - I will be handing that this next update. Thanks :) we are getting there.

      @Itachi (best character in that anime) - 1. This is part of that level, I don't really plan on changing it but I doubt you will see it happen again for a while.

      2. Is it killing your battery while playing it or when its running in the background?

      3. phone to phone/ phone to comp (in the future).

    101. What items do u think will be available in the pokemart

      ReplyDelete
    102. @Matt Reed - Probably start off with rare candies and evolutions stones.

      ReplyDelete
    103. Just got an idea myself, maybe the mart can upgrade your pokeball so that you pokemon become "weakened" at a higher percentage. It will probably be insanely expensive tho.

      ReplyDelete
    104. I don't know if this was on purpose or not but I couldn't use any starter during the gym fight. Also, how about rival battles against gary or someone else. Other than that, great work making this app. Its easily my favorite app yet.

      ReplyDelete
    105. Soooooo... totally got this game today and finished up to the brock level with all three different starters. Hahahaha! That just proves how amazingly addicting your game really is and I love how it makes me wanna play those old pokemon games on my gbc. :) I can't wait for the next update! :) party on!

    106. Another thing that would be cool to put I'm the shops would be pokemon eggs

    107. Ok so I never ever check out the android market but today I decided to. And I'm glad I did because I stumbled upon a piece of gold.. no heaven! I absolutely love love LOVE this game. This is the best game I have ever downloaded between iphone and androids. This game is fantastic and I would even pay to have this game. A lovely piece of work. I can't tell you enough how much I am so happy that you created this. I am looking forwarddddd to updates. Thank you soo much!!

      ReplyDelete
    108. @Billy,
      It is on purpose that the starter is removed.
      If you don't have a starter it will choose the first pokemon in the list.

      @Sam and @itachi
      The app is also killing my phone. But I guess I am playing it too much.

      A number counter of how many are in each wave would be good, but a priority.

      On level 2 am I the only one who struggles to retrieve a pokemon which is at the bottom of the map.

      ReplyDelete
    109. This game is so badass. Thank you so much for making it and staying constant on it with upgrades and all that great stuff. Looking forward to the future of this game so much. Great job.

    110. @Sam Otero

      I think your idea is cool, but I think it's better to keep it a bit similar to the official game.
      So you said "that your pokemon become "weakened" at a higher percentage" when a better pokeball is used.

      I think it's cooler when strong(or rare) pokemons have more chance getting caught when you use better pokeballs (great/ultra/master ball).
      For example: Catch success in weakened state>
      Lugia with pokeball = 5%
      Lugia with greatball= 15%
      Lugia with ultraball= 30%
      Lugia with masterball= 100%
      (Rates could differ depending on pokemon lvl)

      So with this system you need to built in an ingame inventory, in which you can choose the pokeball during the fight. You pay for each ball in the market and obviously a masterball can't be bought, but has to be found.
      What do you think?

    111. Hey!! First of all, it's a very good game.

      Are all these moves and evolutions for the next update?

      ReplyDelete
    112. Ohh I got an idea a survival mode it would b fun way to level pokemon up nd stuff (just an idea)

      ReplyDelete
    113. i have an idea for the next poll let every one decide weather survival or a new level comes out.



      after level 6 of course :)

      ReplyDelete
    114. Hello. I was wondering if its possible to change the way Pokemon are changed/ returned into the pokeball. Possibly a double tap instead of dragging out. Like tap the icon of the Pokemon instead of the sprite? Thanks for reading. :)

      ReplyDelete
    115. Why not allow free roam?? like the original pokemon GBA/C games

      ReplyDelete
    116. Are all these moves and evolutions for the next update?

      ReplyDelete
    117. awesome sam a new level cap update tonight so with that said does that mean level six is going to harder for our level 10 pokemon?


      -Stephen

      ReplyDelete
    118. @azka

      there not going to add free roam because it would take away the simplisity of the game.

      for your second question, yes

      ReplyDelete
    119. @azka

      but dont take my word for it he just might add free roam.

      ReplyDelete
    120. Pleaseanfroid 2.1 support

      ReplyDelete
    121. Since lvl 20 cap is commin tonight does that also mean new moves and evolutions to

      ReplyDelete
    122. @Anonymous,

      Android 2.1 isn't possible as this game is built on Adobe Air which you can't have on 2.1

      ReplyDelete
    123. Great game dude. Was thinking maybe you can trade pokemon between your profiles. Unless we can get all 150 in both the red and blue versions

      ReplyDelete
    124. @Anonymous - Yes new moves and evolutions are included with the level cap.

      @Stephen - Level six will probably be hard for just lvl 10 pokemon.

      @azka - free roaming would almost make it a whole different game. I'm thinking of a mode that allows you to go into an area but without candy/things for pokemon to grab. That way you can just grind a bit or just try to capture somebody without having to replay a level.

      @agraceful23 - You bring up a good point to make returning pokemon be more easier, I will keep that in mind.

      @Tim - I have been thinking about the pokeballs, I'll try to post a more complete post in the future about it. But rest assured you won't be catching legendaries in regular pokeballs.

      ReplyDelete
    125. @Anonymous - You won't be able to trade within profiles, I want to encourage people trading with each other.

      ReplyDelete
    126. Were you thinking of adding in TMs later on. I can't think of a reason for you to add HM, by being able to buy new moves later on could be quite interesting.

      ReplyDelete
    127. hey Sam just a quick question as i have played i have thought about something how many levels do you plan on doing? as i see it, it could be well over 100. and if you deiced to go to gold and silver era which would be awesome.

      -stephen

    128. So can we still update and play on our phones?

      ReplyDelete
    129. @Anonymous - I can't release more updates on the phone but you can still play it on the phone.

      I'm going to try Newgrounds next.

      ReplyDelete
    130. ok so i have been thinking and as of right now none of the enemies ever attack any of your own pokemon...that being said i wonder what the point of the move harden is...if there is no need for defence what good is a move that increases it?...if i am mistaken in the interperetation please let me know

      ReplyDelete
    131. I like the balbasaur app icon but may i suggest finding one that is not so pixeled? It might just bring in even more players if the icon looks nicer.

      ReplyDelete
    132. also there is squirtles withdraw move...if it has no use in game what is the point of including it in the character

      ReplyDelete
    133. @Caleb that was what I was thinking! At first I found the retro look ok, but now I think it needs to be crispier to stand out more. Don't underestimate the power of a good icon. When I saw this app in the market, I tought it was a low-quality game due to the icon.

      ReplyDelete
    134. Why is it being suspended from market?

      ReplyDelete
    135. So will the link that you give us let us update our phone versions, or is the game just for online-only-play now?

      Thanks!

      ReplyDelete
    136. Wow this is amazing! I have played for several hours, made a profile for each starter and beaten the content avaiable for each. I love this, i will look forward to every update! I am kind of mad because I decided about 2 weeks ago to create the best TD game on the market, but with your game out there, that would be imposible :P

      on a side note- My buddy has a samsung fascinate which unfortunately doesnt have a 2.2 update and he cannot find this listed anywhere. Is this only for version 2.2, and if so, would it be dificult to add additional versions?

      Thanks,

      Pokefanatic and TD enthusiast

    137. @G-man, Anonymous, Ben - Due to copyright issues, Nintendo finally got their attorneys to do something, it will be online-only.

      ReplyDelete
    138. so then how are we supposed to play it online...

      ReplyDelete
    139. @Anonymous - You can play it in your computer's browser or phone's browser.

      ReplyDelete
    140. do you have a url for the game...i have googled it and cannot find where it would be located...

      ReplyDelete
    141. And with a link you mean a downloadable .apk link or a direct play link?
      What happens with your old save data when you overwrite the old apk with the new one?

      ReplyDelete
    142. I'm very sorry to hear this, Sam. I will play the online version and support you as much as possible though.

      ReplyDelete
    143. oh this is so messed up removed from the market place couldnt you acknowledge Nintendo in your game to let it go. there alot other thing talking about pokemon in the market place. well sam you have 66,000 or more of us at your back and we hope this gets resolved fast for you. couldnt you make your own web page and hae this game on there?

      maybe there are other options so we can continue to suport you in anyway possiable.

      -stephen

      ps. you not making money from it so why does it matter to Nintendo your supporting there series?

      ReplyDelete
    144. i wonder if it would be possible for you to get permission from nintendo to use their logo...if that were the case it would be easy for you to be able to put it back on the market

      ReplyDelete
    145. sam are you going to put it online with the current things or with the level cap or with level 6 finished. im very dedicated just like everyone else. we are with you

      ReplyDelete
    146. canyou ask nintendo for promision and tell them that its free so your not makeing money?

      ReplyDelete
    147. Are there any possibilities of you uploading an Android .apk file every update and allowing us to update our phone app that way (and thus bypassing the Market restriction).

      While it's good to know that you'll be upgrading a web version, it'd be nice to have the app version if possible for when we don't have internet access, etc.

      ReplyDelete
    148. I second what Graham is proposing. Seems most logical.

      ReplyDelete
    149. i have been going through the nintendo website and i have found a couple articles that state ways to get permissions to use their icons...however these methods are not guaranteed to get the permissions but it does give you a chance to keep what you have been pushing for...

      ReplyDelete
    150. @Everybody - please post in the new blog post, that way I can find it easier, It will be pretty hard for me to put the apk separately. Since I will be more focused on getting it to be better on the computer with mouse and keyboard.
