    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  7. Got a magikarp. taking forever to level >:O

    ReplyDelete
  8. Awesome update Sam, I don't mind waiting for trades or bug fixes. The challenge mode level involves some strategy, please don't make it easier. Xehanorto, click on a pokemon at pokemon select screen and click relearn. Also I love the magikarp splash animation lol.

    ReplyDelete
  9. And beat the challenge mode level :P

    ReplyDelete
  10. someone give me help on the challenge level! its freakin impossible

    ReplyDelete
  11. Email me @ maxwellmonheit@gmail.com for challenge level help xD

    ReplyDelete
  12. Woohoo shiny golbat!!! Awesome gene Sam. Keep up the good work

    ReplyDelete
  13. how do you level up magikarp sam?

    ReplyDelete
  14. the challenge level was amazing but not really a challenge, but my problem is, i dont get the first clue for the zubat hunt can someone explain to me?

    ReplyDelete
  15. Challenge level is easy.
    Send out Geodude and use Defense Curl. As soon as pikachu is in range, change to mudsport and send out pidgey. Pidgey will get the old rod and bring it up to pikachu. Repeat 1 time and you win.

    ReplyDelete
  16. whew got a couple magicarp!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Sam this is a request
    can u update something so we can change out email or password because some people knows it idk how (they said they used my account)and neing able to STOP evolution of pokemon when trading because its pain in the butt to get a kadabra
    hope u reply :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. once we have the old rod how do we get magikarp

    ReplyDelete
  19. Sam the first clue on towerdefensegames is written very poorly. No one on the chat at PTD can make sense of what is trying to be said.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I agree, that first question is very poorly worded...hint?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Found a bug. At the Route 3 intro. There is a random block from some other map or something. No biggie. Keep up the great work!

    ReplyDelete

  23. Based on what I can make out, I think the letter for the first clue is p. But I cannot check because my computer is convinced that if I go to the Play PTD tab, it is only version 2.5.1. This has never happened before, help?

    ReplyDelete
  24. I didn't realize your Pokemon could use move on the challenge level. No wonder it was so hard. I beat it without moves anyway though.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Clear your cache. (Delete browsing data)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Sweet! This is a great update! I think the move tutor was a good idea. Will you be putting in a move deleter if you ever decide to put Hm's in the game? just a thought

    ReplyDelete
  27. Well when you would use an HM, it woould be a regular move learning, where you delete a move anyway I think.

    ReplyDelete
  28. hey sam when clefable's metronome uses absorb. she turns into an oddish.

    ReplyDelete
  29. i beat the challenge level on the 3rd try. i used geodude and pidgey. try using some specific timings to beat it

    ReplyDelete
  30. the old rod challenge is fucking impossible

    ReplyDelete
  31. It really isnt. Remember you have two clefairy. Just use follow me. When it is in the middle or about to be use pikachu. When pikachu is coming back use the other clefairy with follow me so pikachu takes no damage :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sam, can you tell whoever made the blog entry for the clues for the shiny hunt to check their grammar and spelling? It pisses me off.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sam the Miragine War music was also used in a game called CASTLE CRASHERS!

    ReplyDelete
  34. heres a hint for clue 7: Google search "wizard run hot air -oz" and read the descriptions.

    Loving my shiny zubat :D

    ReplyDelete
  35. I won't post the shiny Zubat code, but because of some egregiously ungodly grammar, I'll tell you that the answer to the first clue is the letter 'p'.

    Sam, you've got to have a chat with the people over at that website- do you really want something that unprofessional to be associated with your precious game?

    ReplyDelete
  36. hell yeah thanks for the update!

    ReplyDelete
  37. on the site it is still 2.5.1

    ReplyDelete
  38. The blog says that Tower Defense Games is updated but its not... help!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. this was the second time (that i noticed) that the apk wasnt released at the same time as your post. is it gonna be a regular thing from now on? just curious cuz you didnt mention it in your post. cant wait for it though :) sounds really fun

    and i cant post as anonymous anymore? now i cant be lazy haha

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hey Sam great update, loved the new challenge mode attacking for the first time was awesome and it took a few goes to get to grips with.

    Just a thought I know you are not including second gen pokemon and I respect your decision but is there any chance you may put in some second gen Items. As I feel an everstone would be very helpful to put into the pokemart.

    As trying to level up every pokemon in the game is quite annoying when having to click stop evolution every time my weedle etc levels up.

    Just a thought and regardless on your decision great game and updates.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I beat the first half of the Misty gym, clicked through some dialogue, and then the level ended? And I didn't get an Old Rod?

    ReplyDelete
  42. Woo got the old rod from the level!
    But, what can you do with it? There's no fishing option that I can find.
    And what gen pokedex do you guys follow?

    P.S. Magikarp takes forever to level.

    ReplyDelete
  43. LEVEL 28?R U FREAKING KIDDING ME?JUST 3 LEVELS?MAN...WHY DONT U PUT LEVEL 30?

    AFF...¬¬

    ReplyDelete
  44. @Dat: The old rod is from the new challenge level.

    @Eric: After you get it, certain levels are marked with a fishing rod (currently only Cerulean Gym). Go into that level and the new Pokemon appear with the normal waves.

    As for the Pokedex, the moves follow gen 5 and the Pokemon that are available to be caught are from gen 1.

    ReplyDelete
  45. holly crap i came across a shiny oddish and magicarp in first run. sweet!

    ReplyDelete
  46. @sara You fail at basic courtesy and politeness. And at being a decent human being. Have you any idea how much effort and time Sam puts in to this? Do you think it's easy to create a game like this?? Try making it yourself before being a disrespectful douchebag.

    ReplyDelete
  47. @sara
    seriously. he mentioned before that he could easily do that but the pokemon would have no new moves or evolve. it takes time to do this sort of thing. your an ass for even thinking that.

    good job sam really. this is by far a game that will take tower defense and pokemon to a new level. in no time flat this will be on demand everywhere. 10 thumbs way way up. keep it up man

    just spotted a shiny belsprout as well but i killed it too quick lol damn!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Magikarp is 10x harder yo level than abra. Free pokemon giveaway!! Best joke gets a free magikarp, 2nd best gets free abra. Email me at ducky645@yahoo.com codes will be sent out to best jokes when trading is restored. Rules are: no offensive jokes

  50. Hey Sam - I mentioned this in a previous post, but I think that Blogger's filter ate it, since it included a hyperlink.

    Anyway - re: Shiny Pokemon.

    I think you're doing a great job in terms of making a game that hews to an existing theme while at the same time not being afraid to deviate in parts that make sense.

    In that vein, I think that you should take the direction you're heading with "shiny"/offcolor Pokemon even further in that direction. These have become relatively common, and I don't think that's a problem - what I think you should do is encourage their use, even moreso than you have so far. Incentivize the capture and use of shiny Pokemon with things like extra XP (as you already are), different movesets(?), higher stats, etc. Make them a little easier to capture, but encourage them as necessities rather than just "bonuses," as they are now - you'll be able to force users to spend a little more time in the game, since they'll be asked to acquire something for functional rather than just aesthetic use.

    It doesn't need to require a whole lot of extra work, but it can go a long way to squeezing a little bit of extra gameplay out of the game.

  54. lol i just found my first shiny ever and killed it. i thought you made shinys invincible. it was just a pidgey that i already have anyways so no biggie but i was a little mad. mt. moon 2 with magikarp at the top with another pokemon is the fastest way i've found to level up magikarp. mines already gyarados.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Yeah my 1st shiny was a pidgey too!

    Mt. Moon, you say...hmm...

    ReplyDelete
  56. just a little curious Sam but have you already included the idea of evolved(via stones) still continue to learn moves as they level

    ReplyDelete
  57. @total oblivion
    you obviously didnt learn anything. Posting links to hackers is the best way to further hinder the development of this game.

  65. Sam one more thing, maybe give the player a chance to take the old rod off of the level, or any other item you may create, just giving us more options

  67. @Sam: Could you make it so that wild shiny pokemon are easier to catch? Like just bring it up to 0.1% instead of 0.01%

    ReplyDelete
  68. @Andrew that may not be a great idea. I look in my box and see it light up. The regulars are less common. Keep it at what it is. And also I think you should add rare candy in the pokemart because of pokemon like abra and magikarp. One other thing that should be in the pokemart which is highly mentioned, pokeball upgrades. But make them EXTREMELY expensive and a one time thing. Love the update, keep up the great work!!!

  71. does anyone have any good ways to catch an abra?

    ReplyDelete
  72. Shineys will not be special if they are easy to catch!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  73. im just saying make them a little easier to catch because the only shinys i have are the ones from the shiny hunts and the only wild one i've seen was a shiny geodude like 90,000,000,000 pokemon ago

    ReplyDelete

  76. U should make us able to buy rare candy in the shop :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. Statistically speaking andrew, if youve seen 90 billion pokemon, then you should have seen 9 million shinies. Perhaps the only real problem is that you are killing them too fast so you dont notice they are even there.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Arcanaine shiny =D

  79. I LOVE IT! Magikarp is EXACTLY how I always pictured it in real life! Thank you, Sam. This is too fun.

    -pokedaddy

    ReplyDelete
  80. Sam, gyrados seriously needs to be amped up or something. Seeing as it doesn't learn any decent moves until level 30+, it definitely isn't worth all the wait of how hard it is to train a magikarp right now. Just some food for though, could be just me.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Also. Just thought of a super fun idea...

    SHINY CANDY!!! It could cost a million Poke, but would turn any pokemon into a shiny, when fed. It would be a one time use, of course.

    ReplyDelete
  82. @Poke

    I have 10 million poke so it would be a dumb idea.

    All I have to say is wow.

    ReplyDelete
  86. @The Blue Priest: finding wild shinys is not for people with ADD then cuz i cant stand looking at the same thing for more than two minutes

    ReplyDelete
  87. @Andrew then how did you play a tower defense game lol

    ReplyDelete
  88. @Tim: i usually just let it run while i go visit different websites

    ReplyDelete
  89. Cerulean is bugged.
    Using a vileplume in the center with poison powder and an oddish on the bottom left hand corner with absorb bugs the entire map.

    By bug I mean, pokemon will take the candy and once there is absolutely none left, pokemon will carry on coming along regardless and the level will continue until it's finished.

    Easy win.

    -Kunal

    ReplyDelete
  90. actually, since I mentioned statistics, 0.01% chance is 1/10,000 pokemon. Thats not a lot. I will give you that. Now, 7 pokemon a wave, 30 waves (vf2) means 210 pokemon. So every approxmately 50 battles (48.14761904761905) you will see a shiney pokemon. How many battles would you say it takes to get a pokemon to level 28? Id say 50 AT LEAST, probably closer to 100. So thats 2 shiny pokemon that dont require grinding for them.

    ReplyDelete
  91. and you pretty much just admitted that you dont deserve shinies. you probably, like i mentioned crossed by tons of shinies, but if dont look at the screen of course you arent going to catch them.

    ReplyDelete
  92. @ lucasppl

    how is it possible you have both arcanine and ninetails when they are both from different versions and trade is disabled?

    ReplyDelete
  93. Sam, please get apk up ASAP I wanna play so badly :(

    ReplyDelete
  94. just in case you delete link

    Stop promoting hacking. And don't post all of these screenies showing it.

    ReplyDelete
  96. lucasppl, please stop promoting hacking.

    When my alakazam and growlithe reached level 28, I had to use the move relearning option to get psybeam and fire fang, instead of them learning it naturally upon reaching the new level.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I think you should change the move relearner so pokemon can be taught moves that they are capable of starting with. For example one of raichu's start moves is thunderbolt but since i've already evolved my pickachu into a raichu the best move I have is electro ball

    ReplyDelete
  98. It's good that you guys have stopped the hacking and cheaters. Bit extreme to stop trading, as it did affect the legit people, but it's a small price to pay to get these hackers out of this game,

    ReplyDelete
  99. I'm confused as to what you mean by "new pokemon to catch with the old rod." The only new pokemon I found was magikarp (and now I have a gyarados, of course), but how was the old rod involved in getting those? I thought I could catch them without the rod.. *confused*

    ReplyDelete
  100. I am stuck on the gym level. My team is as follows
    Ivysuar LVL 25 Razor Leaf
    Pikachu LVL 22 Electro Ball
    Nidoking LVL 23 Chip Away
    Mankey LVL 25 Fury Swipes
    Beedrill LVL 20 String Shot

    If anyone has any advice on how to win I would appreciate it

  108. Sam, you should add TM stuff on the game. So we can buy it like an item, and add to relearn stuff. [5,000 pokedollars each one] CONGRATS FOR PTD ! WISH YOU LUCK !

    ReplyDelete
  109. Thanks a lot for the updates. I've realised 2 issues that I would like to point out:

    1) The challenge mode seems to be bugged (I played online and the .exe file). It apparently hangs once I manage to get the old rod back to safety.

    2) Since the level cap is increased from 25 to 28, it means that most of my level 25 pokemon could level up. However, a glitch happened and I could happily level them up (surpassing said cap).

    FYI. Thank you! =D

    ReplyDelete
  110. xehanorto

    with just 1 golem/graveller in the middle (or a pokemon that can 1 move KO the weaker pokemons and fast) and that can do massive damage to the stronger ones.

    Use the pikatchu move that speeds down every pokemon (in the upper spots) really fast one one side (or both if you have 2 pikas) or have the parasect with the spore move (100 % sleeping)

    and then have 2 other guys grinding damage. i normally use raticate level 25 or other stronger pokemon.

    But with the golem (use the rock blast) in the middle and the other 2 pokemons stopping/slowing down you can win most of the time.

    ReplyDelete
  111. its unfair i played ptd in 2.5.1 version wheile it was on 2.6 version and when i tried to trade my golbat and my buterfree i lost two of them

    please send me them back
    thank you

    ReplyDelete
  112. does every level have a shiny pokemon for every catchable pokemon that shows up now? like for route 3 every pokemon that shows up in that level has a shiny counterpart. such as on every other level?

    ReplyDelete
  113. 1. Could you make teleport and splash give more exp?

    2. There is a misplaced tile in Brocks gym

    ReplyDelete
  114. SAM!
    BUG__On version 2.5.1 i tried to trade my graveler to evolve into golem. i received the golem, but with no attacks?!?!?!

    ReplyDelete
  115. I bought back the attacks, no probleam there, but i could only do that now in 2.6

    ReplyDelete
  116. There is something worded wrong with the move Leaf Tornado. It says the following:

    This attack may also make the OPEN drop the candy.

    ReplyDelete
  117. @pitatagesen
    it's not the move that gives off exp but the pokemon you defeat

    ReplyDelete
  118. @ jmooresf

    Yeah i like that idea. i really think sam should implement that (being able to 'unequip' items so, for example, you don't get so many magicarps in the second gym)

    @ Robson29

    I also like that idea. (putting an everstone in the game)

    @ some old anonymous

    also a good idea (at a later date, add a yellow version in which all the levels are harder)

    @ SAM OTERO

    i personally think the challenge levels are really good and would like to see a higher level of your attention going to them. just my opinion. :)

    ReplyDelete
  121. @ aldr012

    if you had played the second gym BEFORE getting the old rod, no magicarps would have appeared. since getting the old rod from the challenge level, magicarps can then appear.

    ReplyDelete
  122. @Sam
    You can catch magikarp before obtaining the old rode. Is that the idea?, or should you firt beat the challenge? I think it has more sense if you need to beat the challenge to obtain the old rode.

    Another thing, you could have a harder brock level, with less pokemon, if beaten the challenge with only rattata and kakuna.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Great update! Love the new moves and love having a Gyarados! But, I have noticed that the towers do not change their focus to the creep closest to the exit or to the one closest to the tower itself. And when the tower kills a creep and chooses a new target it often overlooks creeps that are closer to the exit but still in its range. Not sure if this is a bug, but it has really been bugging me.

    ReplyDelete
  124. @daniel - is it possible to get the magikarp without the rod?

    @gamejunkie86 - thanks! The way the tower aiming works is that they look at who came out of the gate first and is within their range. So if a slow pokemon like geodude comes out first he will get all the attention while a fast pokemon like pikachu will zoom by since he came out second.

    In the near future I'm adding different targeting options that you can use. Like always hit the first one or the one with lowest health, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  125. Is it possible to get a shiny magikarp or is that one not in the game yet?

    ReplyDelete
  126. @olivier - it is possible, same chance as all 0.01%

    ReplyDelete
  127. I would love to see more items in the shop. Maybe some TM's or rare candies. Maybe even some great/ultra balls to catch pokemon before they get in the red or something. Just a thought. I have way too much money lol.

    ReplyDelete
  128. @david - more items like TMs, are a big priority for the next update.

  132. @mathijuul - trading will be back soon enough, while you did beat Misty, she isn't done with you yet you have to defeat Kyogre before you get a badge. This will come in the next story level.

    ReplyDelete
  133. You can't catch magikarp without having the old rod but there is a bug where you have the old rod even before playing the challenge mode level.

    ReplyDelete
  134. @Darren - It's my fault for not really mentioning it but the old rod icon on the level doesn't mean that you have the old rod, it means that in that level the old rod will give you something new.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Ok thanks for clarifying. However, I still saw and captured magikarp before i looked at or tried the challenge level

    ReplyDelete
  136. I really like the idea of different pokeballs as I find I kill many pokemon I want before they go red and it would be nice to have something to just catch them at higher health or out of the gate like you can a shiny, but for a price of course.

    Possibly an "upgrade" to your pokeball that increases the size of the red bar on the oncoming pokemon.

    ReplyDelete
  137. @Tom - the pokeball upgrade idea has been tossed around for a while, it's coming but probably in two or three updates from now.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Oh thanx Sam :) Looking forward to beating the crap out of Koygre :P

    On another note how long will the whole game take? Are we talking half, a whole or maybe two years?

  139. @Sam, it is possible to get a Magikarp without a rod on waves 13, 15 or 17. Other waves are not affected by this bug. There are also mistakes in relearner moves. For example, Kakuna may relearn Safeguard instead of Harden. You better make a single list, for learning and relearning, to make it more consistent...
    You may also ask me for a code review if you want one.:)

  140. Oh and (God damn I forget stuff every time I post)will there be a new shiny hunt every update? :)

  141. Hey Sam, found a little bug.
    In shiny Nidoqueens's animation, you forgot to color her eyes. Only when she is facing left or right.
    Awesome update btw. =)

  142. @Sam I have been playing since the first release on the marketplace, You guys do such a good job and listen to the fans which I feel is one of the greatest elements of this game. I expect to be seeing you and Dan around for many years to come.

    Keep up the good work guys. :)

  143. @ sam

    now you have confirmed that you are going to add better pokeballs, it begs the question, will any pokemon be ONLY catchable with improved pokeballs?

    for example in the actual games you can't catch pokemon higher than about level 20 with a pokeball however low the health bar is. will such things be reflected in this game?

    oh and another thing, will things like paralysis or sleep ever effect how easy it is to catch a pokemon??

    This latest update was awesome. I love challenge levels :)

  144. @mathijuul - It shouldn't take that long to finish it, once I get the moves done it should go by a lot quicker.

    I might offer different things besides shinies on the weekly hunt.

    @mawile - Good catch on the kakuna I'll have that fixed soon. Also thanks for the magikarp info I will check that out also.

    @wilmz - She closes her eyes? I didn't know she did.

    @Tom - Thanks for the support :)

  145. @Mike - I might do something like that :)

  146. Hi - enjoying the game :D

    Would like to be able to purchase rare candies from the market though - training Abra and Magikarp is a bit too slow and tbh, rare candy-ing those 2 is realistic to what a lot of players do in the game!

    ReplyDelete
  147. sam y did u delete my comment about the abra

    ReplyDelete
  148. @thomas.moor - I'll think about it, leveling them up should be hard :)

    @m - abra is pretty rare by himself, so shiny of him is even more rare. You are giving away a shiny abra. 2+2 = 4.

    ReplyDelete
  149. I want an Abra, change any pokemon at any level, just send me an email: elisamedinapaiva@hotmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  150. I don't know if this is supposed to be or not but: i cannot lose at cerulean, pokémon just run trough when all candies are gone :p

    ReplyDelete
  151. @olivier - yea that pesky bug has been around for a while I think it has to do with the pokemon carrying the candy dies while being outside the map.

  152. WHY can't I install the apk on my phone??! It hasnt been workin with either the last or this new apk!!
    I can neither save my profile online, is there something Im doing wrong or have i missed somethin?? panic want to plaay!

    helps appreciated

    ReplyDelete
  153. @Johannes - if you are playing v2.3 or lower you are out of luck as far as saving.

    If you have 2.4 then save your profile online, then uninstall it, then try installing v2.6 and then import your profile and you should be all set.

    ReplyDelete

  155. @m - no problem, I go out with my girl plenty, I value her more than this game any day of the week.

    ReplyDelete
  156. so, if i have 3.3 there is nothing more to do than uninstalling? and start over from the beginning? :(

    thx for the quick answer btw!

    ReplyDelete
  157. @Johannes - Sad to say but yes, since for v2.4 we changed to a better host to save the profiles.

  158. Sam the game on Kong isnt working it just says it isnt found.

  159. @Tibia88 - yea it got taken down, trademark issues, oh well.

    ReplyDelete
  160. hey Sam how do you decide on what pokemon will be a shiny giveaway?

    can the next one be a shiny nidoran male?

    ReplyDelete
  161. I try to look at which pokemon is not too rare but that people would like to get.

    I haven't decided what the next one should be.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Why did you remove it from kongregate

    ReplyDelete
  163. @johnkoduah - I posted above:

  164. "New pokemon to catch with the old rod. "
    How many is that? I'm guessing one since I've only seen one new one.

  167. How do you get PTD on my phone? And where to download the app?

    Also just wondering, do you have an estimate when trading will be back?

    Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  168. If you have an Android 2.2 or higher then you can download the apk zip and install that on your phone.

    Trading will be back by the next update or maybe soon.

  169. how do i get adobe air i play it on my PC
    but i wanna play it on my android so i can show more of my friends

    ReplyDelete
  170. So I guess the app will not work with an iphone unless I jailbreak it -.-

    ReplyDelete
  171. @johnkoduah - you don't need adobe air just download the exe.

    @edward - it won't work on the iphone even if you jailbreak it only for android. Apple doesn't accept trademark games.

    ReplyDelete
  172. No i want to install it on my andriod phone HTC
    But i sent it to my phone and tried to install it but it did not work. It wouldn't install in my phone.

    ReplyDelete
  173. @johnkoduah - oh okay, just download the free adobe air app from the market place, if you can't find it that usually means that your phone is not compatible and that also means that you won't be able to play the game on the phone.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Oh so i cant find it on the marketplace thanks anyway.HTC Wildfire

    ReplyDelete
  175. can't you make shiny pokemon so you can't kill them? this would help a lot of levels where you barely get a chance to see them and you kill them.

    ReplyDelete
  176. Oh, any chance you will make it work for iphone as well :P

    ReplyDelete
  177. @beill23 - I will make a poll for that.

    @edward - Apple doesn't accept trademark games.

  178. BUG: Mud Shot is not doing damage just lowering the speed that

  180. the Abra is still in the cerulean gym after I get the old rod? because I played more than 20X and have not seen any ...

    ReplyDelete
  181. I need an Abra, i change an Arcanine (lvl 27) and Vileplume (28)

  182. @elisa yes he is caught one last night

    ReplyDelete
  183. I don't see why you massively care about the hacking. The game is single player in every aspect but trading. I don't see what the fuss is about

    ReplyDelete
  184. if nothing else make it so when you kill a shiny it gives you a lot more xp than regular so you dont feel as ripped off lol

    ReplyDelete
  185. Loving the update. Here are some pokemon suggestions:

    Eevee (with it Flareon, Vaporeon, and Jolteon)
    Fossil Pokemon (Aerodactyl, Omanyte, Omastar, Kabuto, Kabutops)
    Lapras
    Gastly (maybe after the trading bug is fixed)
    Snorlax!

    Just to get my vote out there, I would love to see second generation items such as the everstone, maybe even battle items once we get an inventory. I also like the pokeball upgrade idea along with.

    I also enjoyed the challenge level and want to see it developed more. Maybe we can use it to obtain usable items in the game like you did here with the old rod.

    On another note, I think you should do a poll on whether or not people want the shiny wild pokemon rate to increase, but I don't believe you should increase it to 0.1, maybe to 0.02-5 max.

    ReplyDelete
  186. Great update. I think there should be a list with all the pokemon that are currently in the game, mostly to help me out with the pokemon that I haven't caught yet. Also, my shiny Pidgey turned into a Jynx somehow. I'm just wondering how that happened.
