What's next? Fixing bugs, Ninja-ja alpha, help wanted, making pokemon more fun!

Hey guys, ready for another week of Sam & Dan Games?

First I want to say that Ninja-ja Alpha is coming very soon, by the end of April, it will first be on the Android Marketplace for 99cents. The game will be updated either weekly or bi-weekly and will not interfere with PTD's update schedule. Buying Ninja-ja will get you a shiny pikachu code for your PTD file, just a small thank you for buying Ninja-ja and supporting me and dan :) We will also bring the game to the iphone/ipad and also a web version for those of you who don't own an android phone.

Dan and I are looking to add more members to our development crew and right now what we need the most is a capable artist. Somebody that wants to work with us on our next games. This is a paid position. All communication will be done online. Here is what we are looking for:
  • A passion for games.
  • A passion for making art.
  • 18 years or older.
  • Must have a portfolio.
Also these next requirements are extra but if you have these it will make you more likely to be picked.
  • Be able to animate.
  • 3D modeling experience.
  • Vector art
  • Concept art
  • Game development experience (web games, console games, apps)
  • Flash experience.
We can't wait to check out everybody's art :) so just email me at sotero86@gmail.com with "Artist Position" as the subject and we can talk about further details. 

Okay now on to Pokemon Tower Defense :)

Get your shiny pidgey code this week by going to http://www.playtowerdefensegames.com/blog/pokemon-mystery-gift/?pokemongame and following the clues. Use the code as many times as you want!

This next update, I will continue to increase the level cap, add some new pokemon, and a new story mode level, as well as fixing bugs. Stay tuned to this post for progress on the update :)

5 new pokemon (2 are blue exclusive, and 2 are red exclusive):
  • 5 pokemon graphics (100% done)
  • 14 new moves (100%, done) skipping (Imprison) added lucky chant and body slam
  • 8 new evolutions  (100% done)
Story mode level (100% done)
  • intro (100%)
  • level (100%)
  • ending (100%)
Adding one wild shiny pokemon (100% done)

Bug Fixes (These are for v2.3, not v2.2)
  • Not being able to create a new profile (100% done)
  • Pokemon disappearing in the challenge level (100% done)
  • Only being able to get shiny geodude on one profile (100% done)
  • When you buy an item on the pokemart not being able to press back (100% done)
  • When a shiny pokemon evolves in battle his graphic shows the non shiny version of it until you move it (100% done)
  • After a pokemon transforms they keep the name of the pokemon they transformed to. (100% done) 
  • Dragging the pokeball to the edges of the map will now scroll the map (100% done) 
  • If your game is muted it will no longer make a sound when you learn a move (100% done) 
  • You will no longer be able to do a challenge mode or enter a mystery code unless you have at least one pokemon. (100% done) 
  • Final Touches and getting ready for publishing (100%)
  • Clefable and Clefairy's base stats were flipped, clefairy was stronger than clefable, this is now fixes for 2.3 (100%) 
  • Pokemon that evolve with stones will now learn new moves (100%)
Lastly, I want to talk about breaking some pokemon game rules in order to make the game more fun :)

This update pokemon that evolve with stones will still learn moves but at different levels than the pre evolved forms, I think it will be more fun in general to have this change instead of following the tradition that is in the game.

As always let me know what you think :) Even though I don't answer every post and email I do read them all.

    F*** yea

    ReplyDelete
  3. HECK YES!!!!!

    LOVE THIS GAME!! =]

    ReplyDelete
  4. Yes deffo make it so pokemon still learn move when they evolve with a stone, other wise there is no point in releasing stones until the level cap is like 50+. Because with Pikachu for example it learns move until level 50. But if you evolve it before then it stops learning moves.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Here's something I've been wondering: How are you going to make the game fun for both everyone who's been playing for a while and pushing the level cap and new players who will probably still be around level 15? Are the levels just going to be really easy for those of us who've been waiting with nothing to do but grind?
    I guess I'll just have to wait and see...

    ReplyDelete
  6. hi sam how will u give codes for pikachu how will you know they pay ---- Phez coz i want pikachu code so ill buy

    ReplyDelete
  7. I found another bug, if you start a new game, and get a shiny pidgey or geodude before getting a starter, you won't be able to choose a starter.

    ReplyDelete
  8. i completed the challenge mode and got a 4 digit number but when i type the number in i do not recieve my geodude could u explain why this is and also epic game i think its amence

    ReplyDelete
  9. @anon 9:59 - Challenge mode will provide good challenge for players that are capped, I just need some time to create them.

    @Phez - When somebody buys it, they need to send me an email and I will verify that they bought the game and email them the unique code.

    @anon 10:01 - Thanks I will add that to the bug list.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hey man, there's a bug in the You don't have enough money to buy this item.'s screen,

    I Can't back to the game after seeing this...

    ReplyDelete
  11. Another bug is unlimited shiny pidgies, but i guess you already knew that.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Maybe you should stil make the pokemon learn moves even if they are evovled with evolution stones. Because they do that in the new pokemon games. And I didn't know that it would stop learning... Now I want to change things but I cant. Can you change it so they still learn their old moves or will you make them as TM's.

  13. every time i try to put in the code it says contacting server and stays like that, i left it for almost 20 minutes and still the same.

    ReplyDelete
  14. A single, toggle-able difficulty modifier would go a long way in supporting two different levels of difficulty, and shouldn't be all that difficult to implement. That is to say, a basic coefficient modifier to your wave settings: things like speed, HP, experience, and money could be used to toggle between a "first playthrough" setting and a "max level" setting.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I definitely appreciate the inclusion of the evolution stone contingency. While I realize sticking to the forced evolution/halted progress penalty is cannon, it just feels to me that it would be the equivalent of punishing us players who wanted to experience the most out of the game as the updates progressed. I applaud you for taking this into consideration for the next update.

    ReplyDelete
  16. How do you plan on making Pokemon, that can only evolve through trade, evolve?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Once you get inventory working, how about some more powerful pokeballs? So we can catch pokemon with more life left. Cuz when I try to catch a pokemon, I gotta wait till it gets into the red and by the till I'm able to react, all the pokemon that are attacking it, usually have already killed it.

    ReplyDelete
  18. when is the new update coming out!! someone please answer me soon

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Peter Thompson, ooh- that's a great idea. I second it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. New Pokemon? Onix + 2 fossils? :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I just want to say that this game is epic in every way and I am glad that you are frequently updating it. Some people aren't this dedicated and said people would probably give up on a project this good, so I appreciate the amount of time and effort you guys are putting into this game. Keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  22. I really don't think you should give out Shiny Pikachu codes. At this point in the game, Shiny Pikachu is one of the few real "challenges" for the more dedicated players. Maybe give out shiny mew or starter codes instead? This way, people will be getting a pokemon they can't normally get without sacrificing the biggest challenge in the game. If everyone has a Shiny Pikachu, what's the point? =(

    -Haunter

    ReplyDelete
  23. @Haunter - don't worry I will add other challenges to compensate :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. The three new pokemon will be a water, fire, and grass type (not the starters), and everybody will be able to catch them all.

    ReplyDelete
  25. This game is amazing. I would suggest the difficulty modifier as well, that sounds like it would really be good for those, like me, who have just been grinding and have all level 25 now, I don't want to just be able to blow through every story level that's released from this point on.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Hey Sam, a few more bugs I found in the new update.

    1. When I completed level two using my shiny Pidgey and Geodude, the screen didn't move over to show Joey like it usually does, and you can't manually move it eaither.
    http://i52.tinypic.com/2h37k09.png
    http://i53.tinypic.com/30tlw61.png

    2. Professor Oak still tells me how to play the game each time I replay level 1. I thought you fixed this?

    3. Feedback button on the .exe version does nothing when clicked. It did in previous versions.

    4. Likewise with the Credits button in Options. it does nothing when clicked.

    Great game, keep up the good work. Looking forward to the next update!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I like the idea of still learning moves after stone evo. That way even the people that don't know everything about pokemon can still enjoy and understand the game.

    ReplyDelete
  28. @Anonymous April 25, 2011 10:46 AM
    That first point was supposed to be on level 3 (route 2), not level 2 (route 1), my mistake.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I forgot to add this question to my previous comment:

    How will multiplayer mode work? Will one player use their pokemon to steal the items while the other has to defend the items? And if so, would the "robber" be able to use moves which increase speed and defence? Because at the moment, there is no point using moves such as Defense Curl. :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. @ sam when will the game be on market? i wanna buy just for pikachu :)

    ReplyDelete
  31. @Phez - Hopefully end of april, I will post a blog for it.

    @Dan - Yea pretty much what you just said.

    ReplyDelete
  32. how are we able to get golem??

    ReplyDelete
  33. I am unable to start a new game. I only had two games, and I wanted to start a new one with bulbasaur as my starter, but I can't click the "ok" button when I choose a name.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I can't see the full descriptions of skills.

    This really hurt when I had my Squirtle wanting to learn Water Gun, but I didn't know what the power of the move was, and I ended up replacing it with Bubble. I can't know though whether it was worth trading because I don't know how much stronger Water Gun is than Bubble.

    Please make it so that we can see full descriptions of skills.

    ReplyDelete
  35. the apk wont work ive never had a prob with this till now

    ReplyDelete
  36. sam y dont u just make an in game code so u dont have to do all that work and when will trading and battle come out wait will we be able to battle i hope we can battle oh im rambling any ways love the game keep it up i hope u go far

    ReplyDelete
  37. Sounds good. can't wait for more updates :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Are you planning on making a sequel in the future?

    ReplyDelete
  39. @Sam Otero

    With the whole Shiny Geodude thing, as it is you have to beat the challenge mode on each save file. Even though it is the same code, you have to beat challenge mode on each profile in order to get it to work. I think it's fine as is, but feel free to fix and change it if you like, but you should definitely focus on more important bugs.

    ReplyDelete
  40. *with Johto pokemon?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ufortunetly, someone posted the code in a comment and thats how i got the prize. if ur wondering what the code is, it's 5uckmyd**k

    ReplyDelete
  42. hi there.i just want to say that i love your game.this sort of innovation makes the gaming world perfect.one day you can publish your game on PSN.great game!!!!!

    i played many pokemon games so look out for this sign (@@).you will know its me!hahahaa!

    ReplyDelete
  43. What about translate game to other languages? I can make Spanish one.

    I you like my idea, please tell me.

    Thanks for the game.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I like your game very much, used to be a big pokemon fan back in the red and blue days, and sort of in the silver/gold phase.
    I agree with you on the evolution stone stuff.
    All I wanted to say was nice game, can't wait for the next update (and even more; the next challenge level, make it at bit harder next time ;) )

    ReplyDelete
  45. How will trading work?
    Also- bug/annoying thing
    could you change how the level is shown in storage?
    make it like during battles/levels?
    like just put the number, not lvl #, just # in the top left corner, and then put the exp bar at the bottom so i dont have to click on them to see what thier exp is?
    thanks

    ReplyDelete
  46. Maybe the new pokemon are Poliwag,Vulpix and (Bellsprout or Oddish) ¿?

    ReplyDelete
  47. @Sam Otero I'm dissapointed. You have all those options in grey but none of them are Day Care. That means we can't get pokémon eggs :(

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hey sam, is it me or playtowerdefense.com shows a white screen when its done loading? I tried reload the page like 15 times and nothing, I also tried restarting the computer, but nothing. Could you check yourself, thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Legen .. wait for it .. wait .. DARY !!!! :D Awesome game, good ideas. Having another bug: When defeating a pokemon in Mt. Moon 1 on the right side at the end, the geodude of brock is at the place where the pokemon was defeated! Hoping I was able help you!

    ReplyDelete
  50. About translating it: I would like to translate it into German!

    ReplyDelete
  51. @JoeGrzzly: No, that's not the bug. The bug is, no matter how many times you complete the challenge level on your second or third account, you can't claim it on more than one. Some people have been able to get around this, but not everybody. This is a bug I have personal experience with, BTW.

    @Sam: is Ninja-ja only sold on the Android marketplace (as opposed to being free to download as an app or whatever)?

    ReplyDelete
  52. Moves after evo stones? AIGHPSHGDAKJ. Lovely fun, but could you maybe show the new moves by level once you've done that? The optional evolution with evolution stones makes me go into OCD plan-ahead mode, thx :> OH and for the trade evolutions might I suggest a buyable 'link cable' like the ones from Pokemon Mystery Dungeon?

    ReplyDelete
  53. Just to clarify re: the shiny Geodude glitch, you can complete the challenge mode level on all three of your profiles (if you have three) but once you claim the code once on one profile, you're unable to claim it again on the others. It's funny how this works, because it doesn't seem to affect everyone, and some people have managed to work their way around any sort of limit altogether.

    (Wow, Sam, that was fast!)

    ReplyDelete
  54. sam, what about trade evolves? becouse I think that there is still people who just want to "steal" some ones pokemons, so please make buyable link cable

    ReplyDelete
  55. You will be able to trade yourself :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. To be more specific you will be able to trade with another profile in your game.

    ReplyDelete
  57. @Sam, (wow, I just keep on posting and posting...) Thank you! That was really what I was hoping I'd be able to do with trading, particularly with my shiny Graveler...

    ReplyDelete
  58. Hey, just curious but, what about pokemon that evolve through trading? Are you going to create an item that works like an evolution stone for them?

    ReplyDelete
  59. sam, are going to make pokedex in the future?

    ReplyDelete
  60. nvm sorry didn't read the posts above!

    ReplyDelete
  61. When trying to create a second profile, I can click on New Game but after I type in my name, I cant click the "ok" button

    ReplyDelete
  62. I think stone evolved pokemon should not learn any moves if they didnt in the original game. Part of the challenge is to train them as non-evolved being weaker than evolved...

    But that's just my opinion.

    Will Golbat evolve by happiness?

    ReplyDelete
  63. The only thing I haven't seen asked here is this: Will other pokeballs (great ball, ultra ball etc) be implemented in time? Right now I am unable to catch any weak pokemon from early levels because all my pokemon kill them in one hit and their health bar is never in the red.

    ReplyDelete
  64. Can you make Golem evolve through level up?

    ReplyDelete
  65. @Sam
    would there be any fix for the "waiting on the server to respond" that I keep getting everytime I enter the mystery code? I play on newgrounds if that helps

    ReplyDelete
  66. So now there's more pokemon but only one isn't version exclusive? Is each version still going to get a fire, water, and grass?

    ReplyDelete
  67. @getfree - send me an email at sotero86@gmail.com I need your help to solve that issue.

    @kyle - correct.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Another bug I think...

    If you keep Ekans unevolved, at level 25 it should learn 3 moves; Stockpile, swallow and spit-up.

    It only gives you the option for stockpile thou...this will also be an issue for Arbok and level 27 I think??

    Cheers

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hello SAM! and DAN(cuz people seem to leave him out) this kinda sucks because im in highschool and learning about all that stuff u mentioned above. but i was wondering if u get the job do we work with u online or in a room together? and how would that work. Btw love your game. YOu know i think we all have the same pokemon so i was think that you should have more exclusive codes-for shinies anyways. because so many people have them whats the point? oh and shinny pickachu.. i dont think anybodies seen one yet. maybee make it like more likey. add a few percents to it showing up( 0.0010)

    ReplyDelete
  70. @getfree - if you get that message click on "Back" and retry it. That's happened to me and whenever I retry it it works. Good luck!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hey i've got the problem that the (I think it's a Clefairy or whatever it is named in english) in Mt. Moon 1 is always much too fast dead when it comes, and thats really rarely. I mean the pink pokemon which comes sometimes. I hope you could make it stronger or something like that...

    ReplyDelete
  72. I've seen a shiny pikachu once.... I don't like to talk about it.. :(

    ReplyDelete
  73. ^haha is true that the hp is red? or do u have to lower it down

    ReplyDelete
  74. So, now i can safely evolve my pikachu, jigglypuff, clefairy, nidorino/nidorina, right?!
    I dont´t wanna to use the stones and not to learn new moves.

    Make the Mt. Moon 1 challenge harder, its SO EASY now, back to the harder one.

    ReplyDelete
  75. Can you post a link to where we can buy ninja ja from you? I really want that shiny pikachu!

    ReplyDelete
  76. @kyle I think the new pokemon are going to be oddish and growlith for red, bellsprout and vulpix for blue, and poliwag for both.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Hey Sam,

    I've been playing 6 hours straight today and no shiny pickachu. Please up the percent a bit, or up how often they appear in the forest. Much appreciation for the game :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. @Dexter yeah it starts off red, so I do not believe you have to lower it; It died before I could even put the cursor on the pokeball..

    ReplyDelete
  79. ^wow, man im sorry for ur lost!(: but hey man it happens. I heard the best plan is to put no pokemon out and watch the waves till it shows up

    ReplyDelete
  80. Yea that's what I've been doing. I was grinding at the time, so I wasn't expecting it at all.

    ReplyDelete
  81. okay so two new fire, growlith for red and vulpix for blue, two grass are oddish and bellsprout, then water is poliwhirl? i realized the version exclusive ones quick but the water could have many possibilities. but why not put onix in?

    ReplyDelete
  82. For unknown reasons I can't save my profile online or use any mystery gift codes, I've tried several sites/the exe, anyone have any idea what the problem could be?

    ReplyDelete
  83. And, we need more lvl to people that already have cap pokemon.

    I have 21 in total.

    7 at lvl 25.
    2 at lvl 24.
    1 at lvl. 23.
    1 at lvl. 22
    1 at lvl. 21
    3 at lvl. 20.
    6 under lvl 20.~

    Now its just redoing the veridian forest 2 to gain lvl.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Could you consider adding a few things to the pokemart? I'd love to have the option to buy rare candies for myself. Ooh and buying a magikarp would be cool as well :)

    ReplyDelete
  85. So the new update is gotta get us:

    - 5 pokemon in total
    +
    - 2 pairs of version exclusives
    +
    - a Fire, Water and Grass type awailable in each version
    =
    We are getting two pairs, where both in a pair have the same type, and 1 of the remaining type
    (I like math and gaming :P)
    I can translate to Dutch and Danish, but those countries get their Pokemon on English.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Hey Sam&Dan. AWESOME GAME! I don't get why people complain about Mt. Moon being too easy? It's for new players to have an honest chance of beating it....

    ReplyDelete
  87. Here's a suggestion for the Pokemon that has their evolution beside from the stones or leveling up. Try making an item for them [for example Link Cable for Graveler->Golem].

    Yeah, only a suggestion.

    ReplyDelete
  88. And the challenge level was good too!

    ReplyDelete
  89. put the game back on the android marketplace.. i cant update ptd

    ReplyDelete
  90. Oh, i forgot my idea i all the math:

    - A heart you can by in the mart to happiness evolve <3

    ReplyDelete
  91. i cannot get the new update to my cell phone. its not on that market. please help. or put up another app on there so i cant get the new and upcoming updates. pleaseeeeeeee ive donated to you twice now and i cant even get to play it anymore... :(

    ReplyDelete
  92. i dont know if you know but the play tower defence website is down and my profile with all my shiny pokemon and rare pokemon like paras plz reply has it is annoying me. good game apart from this happening

    ReplyDelete
  93. So I've been pressing "back" everytime i get that "waiting on server" message and I still can't get it to work.

    Anyone know what message shows up when the game accepts the code for any of the shiny pokemon? I just want to know for future reference.

    ReplyDelete
  94. i have two profiles a low level one and a high but when i go to the challenge mode it always says i am logged into the low level one reguardless of which profile i am on

    ReplyDelete
  95. It would be really nice if a Pokedex would be able in the future so it's possible to see where to catch what pokemon at the different levels. :D

    Ps. keep up the good work ^^,

    ReplyDelete
  96. I'm glad that you're taking a different approach to evolutionary stones. As it stands, I have every catchable Pokemon in Red version, all at level 25 and ready for 26. So the knowledge that I can evolve my Pikachu without fear gives me at least one more thing to do until the next update :)

    Speaking of which, I'm concerned about future updates. I think it would be a good idea to repeat the "Mt. Moon 1" scenario; that is, release a very difficult version first, and then replace it with an easier version next time you update/expand the game. This way veteran players can enjoy a challenge (and actually have a chance of catching a new Pokemon before it gets killed), but ultimately new players won't fall too far behind.

    ReplyDelete
  97. The game has been taken down from the market for copywrite infringement I believe. You will have to manually download it to your phone.

    @jack, if you made a profile using an email address you can just import your file to another site until play tower defense is up and running

    ReplyDelete
  98. Dude, we should be able to delete profiles too. I made three already, but I need to make a new one but can't, because I can't erase one. I think this'll be a great function.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I think it's awesome that pokemon evolved with stones could still learn moves, you're absolutely right it is much better that way thanks :)


    Now about the bug "Only being able to get shiny geodude on one profile", I don't know about other people, but I could get my shiny geodude on both my profiles (red and blue), so I guess this bug doesn't happen to everybody

    Keep up thhe good work =D

    ReplyDelete
  100. @Sam

    something up i am trying to start a new game and i click delete file and asks me for my name and i type in Gable and click ok and it wont start a new game
    please help me Sam

    ReplyDelete
  101. @Sam

    Will there be a way to donate money to get the code for shiney pikachu? Because i dont have a phone to buy Ninja-ja

    ReplyDelete
  102. Bug: only 1 profile can get a shiny geodude.

    ReplyDelete
  103. no offence but the point of shiny/rare pokemon is that they are hard to catch. If your complaining about this then start trying harder, p.s. i catch a shiny geodude in the wild no problem.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Bagon From PTD Forums.

    I want to help you. Here is something I made. Ill give you more when you want more. Contact me with Shadow99153@Yahoo.com

    ReplyDelete
  105. you should continue making the levels difficult so that worse players have to wait until a level cap raise to pass the level and better ones can get a head start

    ReplyDelete
  106. just saying, jigglypuff is freekin beast

    ReplyDelete
  107. please make tm's avaliable in the store, but make them really expensive for balancing purposes, 100,000 at least

    ReplyDelete
  108. One question.. Will Nidoking and Nidoqueen now learn the moveset of Nidorino and Nidorina? Just they learn different moves after the stone evolution which is why I evolved mine

    ReplyDelete
  109. ^ nidoking and nidoqueen already learn moves like earthquake so yea. they haave their own moveset

    ReplyDelete
  110. ^p.s. they don't learn earthquake (don't mean to troll)

    ReplyDelete
  111. ^mahh bad, haha tm(:? but yea they do have their own moveset

    ReplyDelete
  112. I have a problem, I played the game earlier today and had received the shiny geodude and pidgey, however when I try to play the game this I am not able to access my current profile.

    ReplyDelete
  113. Are you ever going to put in the move covet? I'm only asking this because you said that you were going to put it in during a future update.

    ReplyDelete
  114. are you going to allow us to buy a magikarp like in the game? and by the way, your game is awesome

    ReplyDelete

  117. great game, i play it more then xbox now. Would really like to be able to start new profiles and keep up the good work.

    ReplyDelete
  118. is playtowerdefense.com working for you guys? mine isn't :(

    ReplyDelete
  119. Sam, could you please make an everstone for pokemon to hold so we don't have to click "stop evolving" for every level?

    ReplyDelete
  120. @Anonymous 1:57PM I agree with the idea of having TM's in the Pokémart because you can finally learn some moves that you want to your Pokémon.

    ReplyDelete
  121. What the hell Sam? o-o

    Sorry to say, but the thing of the Stones Evolutions learning the moves is kinda stupid

    First, cause pokemons like Nidorino, if they evolve in lvl 43, when they learn a move, they will also learn a move in the Nidoking form, so you gonna make, in this case, the Nidoking learn both moves in the same level, or gonna change it?

    Second, personaly, I think its kinda pointless, anyone with some pokemon knowledged nows that most of the pokemons evolved by stones don't learn moves

    ReplyDelete
  122. Can you put your Ninja-ja game out on the app store too, cus I will buy it for shiny pikachu...

    ReplyDelete
  123. @FullmetalDL commence arguement... ya all the pokemon vetes know that already but it was always one of the stupidest ideas from the games, plus we're talking about pokemon that plain stop learning moves like pikachu

    ReplyDelete
  124. sam can you make the storage to where you can move your pokemon into different spots like in all the games instead of the order you captured them in

    ReplyDelete
  125. sam have you sent the mystery codes for our donations yet?

    ReplyDelete
  126. @A Sak of Lemon

    Well, thats true, simple making it evolve in a lvl after the pokemon learned all the moves would be easier, like Pikachu, but my question about the ones who learn moves still up xD

    ReplyDelete
  127. @FullmetalDL

    he said "This update pokemon that evolve with stones will still learn moves but at different levels than the pre evolved forms, I think it will be more fun in general to have this change instead of following the tradition that is in the game"

    specifically notice that he said "at different levels than the pre evolved forms". So yes, he plans on changing when those moves are learned, probably to remove conflicts.

  128. this game is so f***ing great guys
    i hope it will go on
    i have so uch money an d i can't stop playing

    ReplyDelete
  129. Um I agree that you should fix the bugs, 1. Not being able to delete profiles, 2. When buying evolution stones not being able to return to game (unless you reload the page). I also agree with being able to still learn the available moves to the lower evolutions, I also propose that you make a list of the possible pokemon available to catch, to let the gamers know if there is any pokemon that the have not caught because some of the levels are hard to get certain pokemon. I had to play veridan forest 2 like 50 times for paras to appear once but died to fast. Then again I am probably the only one who thinks this would be good idea, so if you don't do it I won't blame you (not like I could anyways...But). I also think that for the multi-player option that you should make it online so you could possibly go against your friends, and trade with them (but I also like the idea of trading with yourself) but when going against your friends, I mean like the old pokemon games you know one on one or two on two or three on three, you get what I mean. I think this would be outstanding additions to your incredible game already, but I can only imagine the time it would take to do this, so if you don't do these things than I will still be enthralled by your phenomenal game

    ReplyDelete
  130. With the option to learn new moves after a stone evolution, will Nidoking and Queen still learn their specific moves that diverts from Nido-rino and -rina's path. (i.e., Chip Away)???

    ReplyDelete
  131. i got an idea in the pokemart add stuff like different types of pokeballs to change the length of the pokemons red health bar for example
    pokemons health:------
    pokeball:-
    greatball:--100,000
    ultraball:---500,000
    masterball:------1,000,000(and need to complete game)

    ReplyDelete
  132. And I Agree about putting Ninja-ja on the iOS App Store!

    ReplyDelete
  133. Hey great game!
    I had a thought for either a story level or challenge level. Instead of defending an item against other Pokemon, but send your pokemon out, sorta change things up, even the next story level could be sorta like this, you send your pokemon out to save brock's family while team rocket members try to stop you with there pokemon. If there were levels like this attack like defense curl or rock polish would be useful instead of pointless for players to have. This would add another element to the game to make it interesting

    L.H.

  134. Plz add magickarp! Gyrados is one of my favorite pokemon of all time! :) Plz ether have wild magickarp or sell it from the fisherman who sells it to you for 5000 or even 10000! I would pay that much for a magickarp! :O And add tackle when its lvl 1 because it cant gain level with only splash! :P Plz have magickarp! thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  135. if someone buy de app ninja -ja could put the code here please

    ReplyDelete
  136. Hi Sam! I love the game. I found a bug. Every time i try to add a profile the "OK" button does not work. This is not urgent but it still is something to fix.


    -Max

    ReplyDelete
  137. @SAM can you fix the bug where if you go onto your second box of pokemon and select them all onto your party the back button disappears, think this is an important bug to fix
    thanks

  138. i know you guys must have had a thousand posts about this and it must be really hard to find a happy medium but... mt moon 1 has gone from way to hard to stupidly easy i think a difficulty setting is gonna be needed

    ReplyDelete
  139. i just wanted to give you my two cents. I really appreciate how you interact with the community so much and listen to our concerns and ideas. Thats whats going to make you successful. Kudos to your game, i am addicted to it. Keep up the wonderful work and i hope you thrive in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  140. I would actually buy the game even if you wouldn't give out the shiny picachu ;)

    ReplyDelete
  141. I see trading has not yet been put in the update list, I don't mean to rush you by any means, but do you think that could be in next weeks update? If not I understand.

    ReplyDelete
  142. hey just found a bug and its a big one, i purchased a thunderstone and was unable to go back afterwards so i refreshed the page and used it on pika i was asked if i wanted to learn double team and i said no but for some reason i have a pika not a raichu and ideas lads?

    ReplyDelete
  143. just a suggestion is the trading gonna be between your profiles or the world because in red you catch different Pokemon than blue.... and if it is between profiles can you add it soon?

    ReplyDelete
  144. I say that you should make mt. Moon the way it originally was it was perfect, and I would like to vocalize that verdian forest 2 is a little too hard, so could you tone it down please. If you do that would be greatly appreciated by more then just me

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  184. I have a bug to report that i was just reminded of. I have seen butterfree and pidgey do this, don't know if anyone else does. They can hit the same target 2x with whirlwind, and in doing so, they send it going the right way again. Is there any way you can write it in so that they can only hit each target once with reverse motion attacks.

    ReplyDelete
  185. TO THOSE WHO DONT THINK SHINY PIKACHU EXISTS:

    ReplyDelete
  188. oh, and Diego, I have experienced this before, you just have to go back and click save or import a few times until it goes through. Eventually it will tho.

    ReplyDelete
  189. This update pokemon that evolve with stones will still learn moves but at different levels than the pre evolved forms, I think it will be more fun in general to have this change instead of following the tradition that is in the game.

    That will kill my childhood image of Ash winning the thuder badge because he didn`t evolve pikachu :(.
    And it`s really worth it to train untill you have learn that move and think:"It`s totally worth you evolve know nidorino, you have done well"

    ReplyDelete
  190. Everyday i see your blog to see updates, and not wait to get the weekend for next update! The game is getting perfect, and I wanted to join the group of you, I have over 18 years, just do not have experience with these flash games or 3D modeling, has more creativity. I love games and I confess I am a lover of pokemon, and head games! Congratulations Sam and Dan!
