This week we are giving away a shiny Jigglypuff, thanks again to my friend at PlayTowerDefenceGames.com, the clues are a little harder this time so good luck. Click here to start your mystery gift code hunt.

We have gotten a lot of great artist applications, and if you sent one in and haven't heard from us it doesn't mean you aren't getting picked, Dan and I still need to sit down and decide who has what we are looking for. For those that are interested in applying you can still apply.

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.

  2. .....Why can't I save using an older version? I was just playing and I got way further than when I last saved, and now I can't save. I guess I just did all this work for nothing?....

  3. Why is it always the shinies I already have :(

    Since I caught this update so early, I felt I might as well post this. Mt. Moon 1 needs to be renamed. The area just outside Mt. Moon is Route 4 (it is on both sides of the cave, like Route 2 for Viridian Forrest). So if you were planning on having something on the other side called Route 4, I would rename Mt Moon 1 to Route 4 W, and the other Route 4 E. Here's a link:

  5. does anyone know what the new shinies are?

    ReplyDelete
  6. It is not very productive when 2 one-hit-kill pokemon attack the same enemy.

    Suggestion:

    The ability to choose which enemies specific pokemon attack. Like setting one pokemon to attack "first" enemies and the pokemon across from it is set to attack "last" enemies. Other options could be to target "weak" or "strong" enemy pokemon. I think this would make gameplay much more efficient.

  7. how can u tell the wild shiny pokemon are shiny?

    ReplyDelete
  8. I just noticed a bug... i can only click on things if i click the space above and to the left of what i want to click.

    please fix :\ it is making game harder to play

  9. early post is early

    ReplyDelete
  10. Anon 8:55 - yea I did warn you guys...

    Anon 8:58 - Mt Moon 1 has pretty much all the mt moon pokemon in it, and there won't be a Route 4 east.

    Anon 9:01 - the previous blog post knows.

    Tad - gotcha.

    Anon 9:05 - they will have a full red life bar, they have a different color, and they have a shine effect.

    Anon 9:13 - odd I don't experience this.. what browser are you using?

    ReplyDelete
  11. I thought I told someone this already 9:13, your computer/browser is broken.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Great mini update Sam. Just got myself a shiny kakuna! Enjoy your break, its well deserved!

  13. >>>>>8:55<<<<<
    Well I guess this sucks >.<

    ReplyDelete
  14. 8:55, if you were playing an swf or exe version, try to replace your old file with the new one (so the directory and it's name is the same as old one) and run it.
    i could not check it right now, but if the save format hasn't changed, that will work.

    ReplyDelete
  15. (9:13 again)
    Problem went away, don't worry :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Found an error!
    After using Helping Hand, when moving the Pokemon, the stat increase is removed, even if placed on the same spot!

    ReplyDelete
  17. What happened to the level cap increase? I have 3 profiles on my phone. All 3 have every capurable Pokemon. 2 red. 1 blue. All at lvl 25 maxed. I thought 2.3 was suppose to raise the lvl cap? correct me if I'm wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  18. what about newgrounds still 2.3?

  21. put the shiney pidgey code in once and it gave me two pidgeys (on 2.4)

  22. Sam, I was going back and playing the first level, and, if it's not too much trouble, I would love a way to disable the little tutorial Oak gives in the options menu?

    ReplyDelete
  23. does rain dance weaken fire moves like it did in the nintendo games?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hello and mad props for making a really great game. I'm not sure if someone has reported this one or not, but I thought I'd try to chip in where I could.

    A couple of times when catching a pokemon the open poke-ball will 'push' the pokemon across the screen. I can't say for sure but I think this only happened when the pokemon was carrying a rare candy. Both candy and pocket monster slide together and the pokemon is still catch-able, but it seems like it could lead to bigger problems.

    Again, thanks for a great game that's overtaken a good chunk of my free time.

    Sincerely,
    awb24d

    ReplyDelete
  25. Sam,
    Please enjoy your vacation, but when you get back, please consider adding in move relearners. I really want my beedrill to learn fury attack.
    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Enjoy your break! Thanks for this update.

    Again, one hell of a game, really addictive - nearly completed blue, as in all pokemons to the level cap and catched them all... I just miss the male nidoran and a sandshrew(?)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Great game! Thank you so much Sam! I hope you have a long relaxing break! This will definitely keep us preoccupied for a long time! :D

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sam, did'nt shiny pidgey code expire? you can still use it... you get two shiny pidgeys each time you enter the code ***** from last week!

    ReplyDelete
  29. The 'older versions not saving' was not very helpful. I don't always check the forum before I play and so now I've been working away at the game only to lose everything I've just worked for. I'd gained new pokemon, raised the level of all of my current ones by about 3-5 levels each. It's nice that you've updated but I would have prefered to be able to save in the mean time. Not very happy.

    ReplyDelete
  30. great game im enjoying every single update all the time. just a thought because in Mt. Moom in the game there are wild Onix's and i havent yet come across one. Also it does get tiresome after a while to, as your training, to wait till the entire thing is done ... Is it possible to add a speed change button???

    ReplyDelete
  31. just a thought: because it is a pokemon game, why not have the wild pokemon attack your tower ones and give your tower pokemon a health bar? That way your defensive moves you get when the pokemon level can be put to good use and in turn would make the game a little more of a challenge

    -cr8z

    ReplyDelete
  32. I looked for this before, but I never saw anyone ask, but with pokemon like Nidoking and nidoqueen who learn different movesets than their previous evolutions, since you made it so stone evolved pokemon learn all the previous pokemons moves, will nidoking learn nidorino and nidokings moves?

    ReplyDelete
  33. I have the same doubt. that hiroran

    ReplyDelete
  34. hi sam.please reply.
    are there more than one boxes in storage?if so,how do i navigate between them?

    thanks.andgreat game.

    -mewtwo

    ReplyDelete
  35. I just thought this'd be a nice addition: being able to sort your pokemon in the storage? I have about 20-30 pokemon now, some of them twice, and I'd like to put them together.

    Enjoy your break!

    ReplyDelete
  36. @6:46
    One of the updates ano 2,4 does so you can sort your pokemons. just drag them to the new place

    ReplyDelete
  37. Aaaah, that's great. Than I'm a little late. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Yey, I got a shiny spearow, that was so exciting, I almost let it escape. Sam, I really wanna know when does the trade will be opened!

    ReplyDelete
  39. hey so my weepinbell wont go out and battle. It shows up in my team but in play mode, it doesnt work

    ReplyDelete
  40. sam thx4 improved the storage,
    but still need to be better.
    really hard to drag from one page to other page.
    hopefully can drag multiple pkm or like the real game storage computer

    ReplyDelete
  41. anyone know the locations of the new shineys?

  42. ai gente meu jogo nao quer carregar,
    o jogo que estava salvo nao abre afs
    quejo jogar

    ReplyDelete
  43. @8:12, I assume just the same as the regular ones.

    @7:48, is fixed in v2.4

    ReplyDelete
  44. I'm so happy, i got a shiny kakuna *-* And it already evolved into a beedrill! Now I'm hunting for a shiny Butterfree :D

    ReplyDelete
  45. sam or dan, how do you get your game PTD in my blog: tudosobrepokékids.com?

    ReplyDelete
  46. maxxbreaker - not really an error, that's just how I programmed it.

    Jay - 2.3 was supposed to raise the level cap but I didn't get a chance to do it, ran out of time.

    Frazzle - Yea, I messed up with that, enjoy it :D

    Anon 11:30 - Sure.

    Anon 12:07 - Yep

    awb24d - This is fixed on v2.4.

    Anon 5:19 - Sorry about that, there's really nothing I can do.

    Anon 5:49 - Onix doesn't show up in mt moon, also speed up button is not possible at this point in the game, the amount of changes required to make it work is huge.

    cr8z - Defensive moves will be used for multiplayer, similar to my previous answer making your defending pokemon be attacked by attacking pokemon (the ones going after the candy) would require an amount of work that is just not possible at this stage of the game.

    Hiroran - great question, Nidoking will learn both his unique moves plus the ones from nidorino.

    Mewtwo - I believe that will become apparent to you once you get enough pokemon to fill more than one box.

    Yoshinori - trade is next up on the list of things to do, expect it soon.

    Anon 7:48 - make sure you are playing v2.4

    Anon 8:12 - Storage will remain how it is now for quite a while, I believe you would rather play more levels, level up, trade, catch new pokemon than being able to drag pokemon from one page to another more easily (put them on your party bar then go to the page that you want to put them in)

    Dragon KPRUNF - you can grab the swf file and put it there.

    Thanks to all the people enjoying the update :D

  47. On Mt. Moon 2 i lost all the fossils but pokémon kept on coming.

  49. When my Bellsprout evolve to Weepinbell, it disappeared from the stage( I forget to wrote it)

    ReplyDelete
  50. if you want to see how to evolve your pokemon put on google (pokemon evolution families) and press the first (it is for an other game but they are the same and in this game)

    ReplyDelete
  51. @Rohebat, I confirm this - tho, it only occured at me once, as far as my knowledge goes. And I played that stage over and over... So, it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

    @10:17, is fixed in v2.4

    ReplyDelete
  52. Great game Sam! this is indeed a master piece...I love the nostalgic feeling the music gives me....
    btw, I have a question

    what are the oods of finding a Shiny Pikachu?
    I heard it's 0,01% that when I find a pikachu it would be shiny....that would be for all pokemons to be shiny?
    it's already kinda hard to find a pikachu...
    not to mention not killing it with one blow ("Veridian1") or letting it slip (Veridian 2)

    and btw, can someone tell me if it's easier to spot a Pikachu (yet, I want the shiny one so bad >.<) in Veridian 1 or Veridian 2???

    thanks! and you deserve this week off

    ReplyDelete
  53. Cool Update! i saw a shiny kakuna but i burned it to death -.-

    but yeah great game!!

    ReplyDelete
  54. @Caue, I think veridian is easier... I caught 2 of them there. I don't know about the shiny one tho.

    @10:48, "join the club" :/

    ReplyDelete
  55. Wow that update was fast. I guess now I know to save my profile more often. I was one of the last few to donate over 20$ choffee15. Please email me them magical stone codes.

  57. Hello!

    I have opened now the new version and I have noticed that I have lost a lot of pokemon and most of them are in lower levels than before.

    I read the warning, saved the game on Thuesday and wait... and I always save the game after playing. Some of the things that I have lost aren't things that I have obtained this week...

    What has happened?

    I don't want to do all those things again...

    Money: before: near 25.000, now, 3.000
    Pokemons: 7 of them in level 25, now in 21 or lower
    Nº of pokemon: before 27, now 18

    Thanks

    PD: Sorry about my english...

    ReplyDelete
  58. Poke - There is not much I can do about that, sorry :( You can try asking in the forums about recovering your data a different way.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Another rare thing... now I have opened my profile in TowerDefenseGames 2,4, no in Play PTD as before, and there iI can play with my real profile... Sam, don't you know why?

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  60. Newgrounds is updated now :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. How big is the chance that u will see a shiny pokemon?

    ReplyDelete
  62. 1 in 10,000 or 0.01%, when a pokemon shows up that can be shiny the game picks a random number from 1-10,000 if it gets a 1 then that pokemon will be shiny. So just because you saw 10,000 pokemon doesn't mean you automatically will see one. You might see one after 5 pokemon or 100 pokemon, it's random.

    ReplyDelete
  63. hi sam!
    there's a problem with mankey: it doesn't evolve.
    i have also a problem with weepinbell, i am not able to put it on the groun unless i have selected it before.
    will you revise thats bugs?
    thank u very much.
    ALba

    ReplyDelete
  64. Alba- are you playing v2.4? also mankey evolves at 28, the level cap will be increased later on.
    Hope that helps.

    ReplyDelete
  65. i think you deserve a break but with the question about misty i think Brock should come and attack the gym and then joey misty and you (the player) should defend the gym.
    then you should fight help joey defeat misty by not letting a certain amount of Pokemon past us or something like that.

    What will trading be like and when will you add it?

    Keep up the good work! :)

    ReplyDelete
  79. Anon 1:46 - probably not... who knows in the future.

    Danny - Trading will be coming very soon (hopefully next update) it will be possible to trade or just transfer a pokemon to a different account. I'll post more on it later.

  80. OK thanks Sam!

  81. Does this game have an official forum or so? >:D

    ReplyDelete
  82. Hey Sam! I love the game. I think that in the multiplayer mode where you attack, not only self-stat effecting moves should work. For example, hypnosis could make a tower fall asleep. Keep up the good work :)
    -Max

    ReplyDelete
  83. yes...consider all evolutions plz...don't add new pokemon tho like the giant whale thing and don't include pre-evolved forms like pichu.............but plz do include al final stages...if u don't it wouldn't really kill the game for me but some of my friends said that it will kill it for them

    ReplyDelete
  84. Awesome, mind giving me the link?

    ReplyDelete
  85. btw...just makin' sure...the only improvement in v2.4 is shineys right?

    ReplyDelete
  86. hey sam great job but the credits dont work for some reason

    ReplyDelete
  87. Max - interesting I will keep it in mind :)

    Anon 2:07 - adding too much of other generations would kill it for a lot more people.

    Anon 2:07 - link to what?

    Anon 2:09 - the previous blog has all the details, short answer no.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Sam, moves like Encore and power swap wouldn't work in multiplayer unless you could use it on the attacking pokemon. Will you make it so some moves can hit the attacking pokemon? (Of course no actual attacking moves.)

    ReplyDelete
  89. Anon 2:20 - Yes, disable is an example of a move that will do that.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Hi Sam, thanks for all your hard work! I was wondering about something though. Before the troll attack that you stopped the donation reward thingy, you mentioned that you'll be giving out a Shiny Mew. I was wondering, is Mew in the game right now or not yet implemented?

    ReplyDelete
  91. Oh, one more question, did you read the long e-mail and post I sent to you giving you a suggestion for PvP and other things? Just curious as I never got a response.

    ReplyDelete
  92. mr - the mew has been in the game for a while now, also I did read your email I could have sworn that I responded to it.

    ReplyDelete
  93. I cant figure out the storage. Will someone explain it?

    ReplyDelete
  94. Great game! But for some reason i keep coming across this bug: on the challenge mode level, I only have 5 pokemon-charmander, kakuna, pidgey, metapod, and rattata. All of them are level 6. I never chose those pokemon (and my starter was squirtle). I think they were from a different profile that I deleted a while ago. Please help!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Anon 2:33 - be a little more specific.

    Anon 2:37 - Those are not yours, part of the challenge is to use other pokemon that aren't yours.

  96. What are the odds of running into a mew while playing?

  97. Ohh ok thanks for the reply bro :)

    ReplyDelete
  98. Thank you very much Sam, but I will try it again. If you need to translate the game to portuguese, you can contact me, I read about it in the other comments, I dont know if you really wanna do that, but if you want, I can help you.

    I just can't understand how it works. Do you switch the spots of them or do they take the others persons place and move that 1 back or what?

    Sorry if im not much help

    ReplyDelete
  103. Wow Sam, I'm quite surprised, people keep talking about you taking a break but you have been answering everyone's post. However, you still have not commented on my post a while back (nor has anyone else). I don't mean to pester but this is really making me mad. I proposed that maybe you could for multi-player you can make it online and we could go against each other like in the original pokemon games. I also understand that it is a tower defense game so if you didnt like my idea you could have said a simple no

    ReplyDelete
  104. ok um sam...the poll says it ends in 2 days does that mean v2.5 is coming early like in a couple days?

    Islands313 - just drag the pokemon to the spot you want him to be in, it will push everything else down one.

    Anon 3:06 - yea not much of a break eh.. I will have multiplayer in the future, thanks

    Paco - no, but I need to know the answer before I make the level.

    ReplyDelete
  106. New update is great. Polishing up, Sam. I dig it. I'm looking forward to new challenge levels like another Pewter gym level (like the original one where your strongest gets nabbed) or the hard version of mt moon 2. Gj man. Also, personal trolls take things personal.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Well, thank you Sam for answering my comment, I really appreciate that. @Chris are you calling me a personal troll?

    ReplyDelete
  108. Hi Sam!

    I have a Question about one detail of the update you said that is in 2.4:

    You said: "No amount of spaces or symbols will allow you to get multiple shiny geodude from the challenge mode code"

    English is not my Main-language and i dont understandt this.
    Does it mean i can get more Shiny Geodudes by codes? If yes, how?

  113. @Anonymous 3:56 PM, Sam was taking a break this week. He added shiny pokemon so people would have something to do on PTD for his break. Levels, pokemon, and all that take a long time that's why he didn't add any new ones. Plus we needed some new shiny wild pokemon.

  120. @paco i thought the same thing, but i then realized that there are even more fossils or stones at the very bottom of the screen if you scroll way down there. hopefully that helps

  121. Good Update, got Shiny Butterfree and Beedril, alredy max lvl, anyways Sam, is there any stat difference at all, btw evolving the Stone-Evolutional Pokemons now or like in lvl 40, or just he speed your learn the moves change?

    ReplyDelete
  122. @Anoymous 4:18 PM, Sam has been told about this glitch. He hasn't been able to replicate it yet (or from what I know) so he can't fix it yet. This has happened to me twice.

  123. POST NEW LEVELS AND GROW DE CAP.

  125. something that i would like you to fix is if you use a stone on a pokemon to evolve it and then cancel the evolution the stone doesn't disappear and you waste 10,000 hard earned points

  126. Hello Sam and Dave,
    (obviously only sam...but well^^ )
    I would like to know if you will add a shiny version of all Pokemon.
    If you do so, do you think there might be a chance of them to not be tradeble? I thin for myself:

    1.
    "Is it worthy catching em?"
    -"Yes it is. It keeps me playing and i got a goal to reach even if i lvled up all Pokemon"

    2.
    "Wait, if i can trade em, i just should go for cash! because all will only try to get a shiny Mew or might buy/trade to get the other shinys...so dont waste time catch em."

    3. and final thought:
    "But if the Shinys wouldnt be tradeble, it would be a sign of succeed and work to show off a shiney Pikachu."

    Dont take it a critic. Just a question...or maybe a little request =D

    oh...btw....addicting game! Lovley Concept!

    Call me "Optimus Prime" if you are going to answer =D

    ReplyDelete
  127. I think you should make it so everyone has the opportunity to get mew. It seems unfair that some people are able to get mew while others can not.

    ReplyDelete
  128. mmh, they donated at a very early point in the game. Helped him with it i guess. I think its fair if some were giving donations, they should have somethink exclusive. Let em have their Mews =)

    But just my opinion....Optimus Prime

    ReplyDelete
  129. hey, sam, i've got two suggestions for joey in the Cerulean Gym.

    1: We battle Misty first and afterwards there is a scene where Joey battles her. (Kind of like when Joey caught Pikachu)

    2. You could make a Challenge Mode level where we play as Joey and use his pokemon to battle Misty. (Not sure how much of a challenge it would be with Pikachu, though...)

    ReplyDelete
  130. sam, can you throw an everstone in the game, i'm training 1 of every pokemon, and it's a pain to hit "stop evolving" every level up i get. I only need a pikachu, but i'm waiting for ninjaja so i can get a shiny one instead.

    ReplyDelete
  131. I want mew!!!!!!!!!! Everyone should be able to have it or noone should be able to have it.

    ReplyDelete
  132. What about a "special week" where shiny pokemon have a increased chance of appearing, like +1%, but only for one week? I'd love that :D

    ReplyDelete
  133. After I typed a mystery code and clicked the button to get it it said I allready got it when I've never even tried befor...>_< I confuses my can you try to fix it or atleast explain what might of happened?

    ReplyDelete
  134. are shiny pokemon stronger than normal pokemons, or is it just their appearences that changes??

    ReplyDelete
  135. sam i found a problem with shinies. when i use thunder wave and string shot a the same time on a shiny pokemon(i did it accidentaly when i moved my butterfree) the pokemon turns normal.it was a shiny pikachu.it would be awesome if you can send me a one use only code for shiny pikachu because i was really frustrated when i couldn't catch it anymore. my mail is xqnotemanyo@hotmail.com. hey if you cant send it or feel like im lying i dont blame you because i bet there are lots of people that tried this but at least try to fix it.

    P.D.:the game is awesome, i play it every day :D

  139. heey sam will u be letting us catch legendaries -pokemonfan123

    ReplyDelete
  140. @anon 6:01: It happened in viridian forest 2. and im not lying it turned normal when i hit it with string shot and thunder wave the bar turned green and it stoped shining.i didn't kill it because my attackin pokemon were in the back and pikachu and butterfree where in front.

    P.D.: if you read this sam im the dude that published at 5:40. I REALLY hope you send me the code . my e-mail is on the previous post.

    ReplyDelete
  142. @pokemonfan123: You will eventually be able to catch all of the pokemon from 1st gen including legendaries such as mew, mewtwo, articuno, moltres and zapdos if i am not mistaken. Read the FAQ, it has some useful info.

  145. fullmetalDL - shiny have the same stat as regular they do each 50% more experience. Stone evolved pokemon will learn the moves of their preevolution 3 levels after.

    Anon 4:33 - why did you cancel? I'll see if I can do something with that.

    Optimus Prime - His name is Dan, not Dave. Shiny will be tradabe since some people want to have all their shinies in one profile.

    Anon 4:35 - there will be a way to buy a shiny mew code, and regular mew will be available for free eventually.

    Anon 4:41 - something kinda like that will happen, the first thing you said.

    Anon 4:44 - it can be annoying hitting stop cancel all the time I will see what I can do.

    Gui225 - interesting idea, thanks

    Anon 5:21 - read number 3 in our FAQ.

    Anon 5:39 - just the appearance, they do earn exp 50% faster.

    Anon 5:40 - can't really help you there :(

    Anon 5:55 - I'll see what I can do

    DripDripDesigns - send me your portfolio anyways I would love to see it.

  151. I'm surprised nobody has asked this but how do you move from box to box? It took me a long time to find out, but you have to stick it up in your party and then change the box.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Hey Sam,

    I've seen lots of people point this out and haven't seen a statement from you about it so I'll post it again.

    In the pokemon games when a pokemon levels up and evolves, the pokemon levels up, you see all the stat changes and any new moves learned and then when you're exiting it evolves, but it PTD you have it so the pokemon evolve and then learn any new move.

    So if pidgey were supposed to learn a move on the same level it evolved to pidgeoto it would get the move and evolve, but since it evolves first you have to either learn the move at the later level that pidgeoto does or post pone the evolution until next time.

    (also i just used pidgey as an example, not sure if it does for sure, but I know it happens with some pokemon)

    ReplyDelete
  153. Sam, yet again, awesome work.
    What really impresses me is how many responses you have given to this update's comments. Shows that you really care, and thats great. You have a great game here, as many have told you, and I hope you take it all the way to the finish and make it as good as it can be.
    I just wanted to say thanks for all the hard work, you have renewed my long gone love of pokemon.
    And way to stick to the original 151 (? if you do). The gold/silver era were okay, but it was never the same when they started adding.
    Thanks a lot sam, keep up the GREAT work
    Cheers,
    Sean McKenna

  154. Hey designer dudes,

    I have some suggestions you may consider for more in-game ease of use.

    1st suggestion would be adding a mini-map to scroll around with instead of the click and drag. Its incredibly tedious when your scrambling to set pokemon up esepcially since attackers pour in immediately at the beginning of the level.

    2nd suggestion is making your pokemon icons smaller at the bottom of the screen during a round. Alternatively you could try to do a mouse-over thing where they pop up if you put the mouse over the bottom of the screen. But damn dude, they're huge! If the attackers comes from the bottom of the screen you cant even see some of the pokemon (like a clefairy) before they die.

    Great job with the game though, I love the storyline and the way you level and stick with the original moves.

    Thanks for hopefully reading this, lord knows youve got a ton of comments to sort through.

    ReplyDelete
  155. I'm sorry if this has already been stated, but the storage box rearrangement doesn't really work. It seems to switch them around in some arbitrary manner whenever I try to move them into the order I want.

    ReplyDelete
  156. hey i have a question, when u use rain dance does it weaken fire moves, and boost electrical move accuracy like it did in the pokemon games? Also i think that the concept behind bubble beam is wrong, it shud be like bubble and ember, a spray of bubbles toward one target, not in a circle around. lastly, i like how u made shinies,1 in 1000 chance of showing up, but i liked it better when it was 1 in 8952 or something like that, just make it for like 1 in 8952 for every pokemon together not a 1 in 1000 chance for every individual pokemon

  158. hey sam
    whens ur birthday?

    ReplyDelete
  159. i loved the sleeping snorlax part in the original games, and the free lapras u always received from the building in saffron, and i cudn't forget the hitmonchan or hitmonlee you could choose to get, those were some of the highlights of the game, and i also have fond memories of wasting a bunch of pokeballs trying to catch a ghost, you wuhdn't forget to incorporate things like that, but the major thing is you do wut u liked about the game. I think you shud have a chance to get one shiny that u want above all others in this game, like a gift sorta say, for winning a certain level that was extremely hard or a catching contest where you try to catch this certain pokemon before the waves run out, or a survival mode.

    btw: the shiny kakuna and shiny beedrill are green not yellow.

  163. This game is so awesome! But I have two questions... can the pokemon only level up to 25 and how do you use a stone?

    ReplyDelete
  164. yep, now the max. level of a pokemon is 25, and the stone.. you can use it just selecting the pokemon for the stone, click in the option: use item or something like that, and the press USE. and thats all.

    ReplyDelete
  165. @Anon 8:30
    The Pokémon are ordered going downwards, then across. If you drag a Pokémon to a new position, then everything else will be shifted down.

    ReplyDelete
  166. i have an Idea for 2.5

    Lvl cap to 30-35

    Route 4 as lvl 10

    More Geodudes on Mt. Moon 1

    More Pokeballs on Pewter Gym

    ReplyDelete
  167. i liked it when you guys gave away shinies, you should have promotional events like that more, or you should have a harder scavenger hunt, also the polls should last a shorter time so you can make the game faster.

    ReplyDelete
  168. you should make another challenge level, maybe put it mt moon 1 the original harder version, or u could have the challenge level completely devoted only to the gym battles.

    ReplyDelete
  169. i love the game but the part where team rocket talks about the general, it feels like it came out of a percy jackson book, no offense of course and the part in the intro where ash says "you won't believe me if i tell you" it should be " you WOULDN'T believe me if I told you.

    ReplyDelete
  170. lol, does anyone think the spearow with the pidgey moveset is valuable?

    ReplyDelete
  171. BUG REPORT:
    So i played the version 2.4 took charmander used the old shiny pidgey gift code and i got 2 shiny pidgeys.

  172. @sam

    how about adding abra in the next update ? There is not another place, where you can catch him

    ReplyDelete
  173. Sam,

    just wanted to give you my 2 cents.

    1. pokemon should learn moves before they evolve.
    2. lvl cap = 40
    3. move relearners
    4. all evolutions of a pokemon ex. Crobat
    thanks for listening

    ReplyDelete
  174. Sam, please don't listen to these spammers, DON'T ADD CROBAT!!!!! It would really ruin it for me, and letting them have their way with Crobat would make them ask for even more. Ex. If you release Crobat, this is spammers now: Can you add Steelix? Can you add Scizzor? Can you add Politoad? Can you add Slowking? Can you add Kingdra? And so on, and so on.

    ReplyDelete
  175. Sam i think that shiney should get levels twice as fast cuz i got geodude level 1 and i hate to train all over again.Luke

    ReplyDelete
  176. would it be possible to make a really hard challenge mode level and if you win you can get a non-shiny mew?

    Or perhaps if you win a hundred online battles? Giving out mystery gift codes for amount of online battles won could make a lot more people play pvp.

    ReplyDelete
  177. if possible can we have a ranking system for online battles? It will make it more competitive.

    ReplyDelete
  178. please make a new level after mount moon2 Sam.

    ReplyDelete
  179. im kinda new (got hooked on to this game at the end of v2.3) and i just wanted to say hello to all the guys who are reading that much comments^^ and i want to say: awesome game guys!!!! rly!

    oh yeah, and maybe, just maybe, could you look into the matter of the wild pokemon picking up the pokeballs and the candies? it seems to me that they grab them when they are still one or two "steps" away. if that is meant to be that way, then so be it. if not, please do something about it in the next update, if its not too much work. it would be quite helpfull to have one or two extra attacks land before they get away...

    Peace for the worl...
    ME WANTS COOKIE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  180. for the challenge mode, can you change your pokemon party? because when i click start it doesnt bring me to the pokemon select screen AND i only battle with 5 level 8 pokemon....

    is it even possible to beat with 5 level 8 pokemon?

    ReplyDelete
  181. why my charmander is not going to level 26?it is stuck on l25.why Sam?

    ReplyDelete
  182. NVM!! i beat it!! :D but.. the code doesnt work for me :(

    ReplyDelete
  183. Ano 5:53 - The level cap of the game until now is 25, thats why you cant pass it.

    All - Guys, if you read the post before to start to comment, the most of your questions will be answered, so, read it before asking something!

    ReplyDelete
  184. The game is great but I got some minor suggestions that would make the game freaking awesome and also if they were implented the game could be made harder and be funny as hell.

    Option when selecting a pokemon you could select what type of enemie it would attack, or maybe when you selected the attack you could select priorities there.
    for example I click raichu and then set prior 1 flying, prior 2 water, etc
    or maybe I click thunder ball and then prior 1 flying, prior 2 water. then when I select tackle I can choose different and the thunder ball would still be saved.

    please consider this, it might be hard to do, but such a small change can make the game more user friendly and fun.

    You could make some "locked" lvls. like I do the first 5 lvls, then I can't do lvl 6 for some reason and then my idea begins.
    I click lvl 6 and it tells me I have to kill x caterpies, or 10 pikachu's.
    please consider something like that, it might not be a big deal, but it makes you a bit of a poke-hunter as well as a trainer ;)

    Keep up the good work guys!

    ReplyDelete
  185. hey sam can you make the level cap bigger and add charizard, blastoise, and the grass one. also, can you make another challenge because my golden geodude evolved so i want another.

  186. Is misty going to be in the next update? i hope so I want another gym so bad. and a level cap raise please all pokemon are at 25 with full exp

  187. im having trouble changing boxes in the storage.can i go to box two,even if idont have that many pokemon?

    ReplyDelete
  188. vote "NO". we should battle misty, not joey.

    ReplyDelete
  189. I have some question. Is the moveset from dp or bw? Also, if I evovle my Gloom with a leafstone, is it then unable to learn new moves, except from the one Vileplume can learn? If that's case, it sucks.

    Well, I love your game, it's fantastic!

  190. ''Anonymous said...

    The 'older versions not saving' was not very helpful. I don't always check the forum before I play and so now I've been working away at the game only to lose everything I've just worked for. I'd gained new pokemon, raised the level of all of my current ones by about 3-5 levels each. It's nice that you've updated but I would have prefered to be able to save in the mean time. Not very happy.
    May 5, 2011 5:19 AM ''

    This situation happened to me aswell. I've got almost every pokemon at max lvl and over 40K pokemon moneys and i can't save my game in 2.3 version to import it to 2.4. I'd love if you could do something about that SAM.

  193. SAM just wanna ask u something?? What are the new shinys in v2.4??
    And a suggestion put a shiny stone on the market but put it for about 100000 pokemoney, because that way people will be able to have their shiny pokes without having to spend 3hours just to try to see the one they want, and it will not be easy cause 100k is a lot of money =P Thats just my suggestion, dont know if u liked it, but im pretty sure that a lot of people will be happy with shiny stone in the market!!

    ReplyDelete
  194. Great mini-update. Just one thing with the organizing of Pokemon in storage. You should make it, if not too difficult, so that blank spaces are allowed. This way when a pokemon is moved to be used, the order doesn't get completely rearranged and so we can put blank spots for missing Pokemon. Not an important detail, but I'd appreciate it.
    Keep up the great work!!!

  195. Hey, i just came up with a small idea :) Can you make a challenge level where you have to defend 2 fossils at mt.moon (This would make a bigger challenge :D), and if you manage to defend both, you get Omynite in blue and kabuto in red? I mean, there have to be a way to get themm, but just an idea..
