What's next? Ninja-ja, Pokemon Tower Defense progress list.

Hey everybody, this is a little late coming but better late than never.

Want to play Ninja-ja? Get a shiny pikachu, shiny mew, shiny starter or have your suggestion for a weapon design to be used on Ninja-ja? Click here for more info on how you can get those things.


Ninja-ja: v1.1 is now out, if you bought the game send an email to dbell1984@gmail.com to get your update, thanks!

The pokemon tower defense update is still happening, and here is what we have for you guys:
  • Final Touches and distribution (100%)
  • Challenge Level (greatly inspired by forum member Zackirus, thanks for the great idea!) (100%)
  • Adding some TMs to the pokemart (Postponed until a later update)
  • Bug fixed
    • Shiny starter mystery code not working on 3rd evolution starters. (100%)
    • Evolution Button: When pokemon is evolving during the level the game crashes. (100%)
    • Self-Destruct bug (100%)
  • Relearn only moves (ex. Thunder Fang for Arbok) (Postponed)
  • Pokedex/Achievements (you decide which one on the poll above) (100%)
For the New Feature I have added a short poll on the website, you guys get to decide which feature you would like first.
  • Pokedex/Achievements - A pokedex will be added to the game to keep track of who you saw and who you caught, also achievements will be added into the game for finding certain pokemon and completing certain task, like beating a level without losing candy.
  • Targeting System - Your towers will be able to target different units depending on what command you give your pokemon. For example, attack first, attack last, attack lowest health..etc.
  • Different Pokeballs - Be able to buy different pokeballs that will let you catch pokemon at higher percentages.
  • Trading Center - A place that you can search for trades being done by other players. Search by who you want in the trade or search by what you want to trade, all trades will be handled by the game so once both sides agree on the trade you will both get them immediately.
Choose wisely :)

Also the last poll it seems like you guys want to keep trading, so trading will stay, in the future I might tweak things here and there but for now it stays like it is.

I also added two new tabs to the site called "Suggestions" and "Bugs" these will cover both games PTD and Ninja-ja, make sure you read them before you offer a suggestions.

The artist search is almost completed I sent emails to the top 9 applications that we received that fit into what our next game is going to be. Once they answer the emails we will pick from there. If you didn't get an email and you applied I just have to say thank you for even considering applying for the position, a lot of you had great art and we might contact you for a different game but for our next game we were looking for something very specific, some time this week I will send out a thank you letter to all who applied.

Thanks again for sticking around, the support is greatly appreciated. Let's continue on this journey! As always, let me know what you think.

  7. I'd like to suggest a training level, in which there are lots and lots of waves (like, 100), so we can train up our Pokemon without having to be glued to our computers. Thanks!

  9. Thanks for finish the Relearn option, my parasect will can learn cross poison :)

    And what will be the reward for the Challenge mode?

    ReplyDelete
  10. @Anon 3:36 That's what Virdian Forest 2 and Route 3 are for...

    ReplyDelete
  11. I Chose Pokedex.
    Please Sam Put Again Link For Forums xD

    U Should Add More Pokemons... Because U Need To W8 1 Week For Do The New And U Can Do It In 1 Day xD

    ReplyDelete
  12. Why would you make different pokeballs?? That would make the game way too easy, you would barely even have to use pokemon towers...

    ReplyDelete
  13. take one of this for every new latest update and start with the one who wins then the next that came on 2nd place and then the third and then the last one that would be awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I think that this ideas Sucks!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Anon 3:45 How? You would still need to weaken the Pokemon.

    Anon 3:52 You suck

    ReplyDelete
  16. If pokedex/achievements wins (leading so far)...

    Any chance of getting NG medals to go along side them?

    Or stuck with only in-game achievements?

    ReplyDelete
  17. sweet and i choose targeting system because it would make so much so more easier

    ReplyDelete
  18. @Sam


    You are a genius. Every update you make just keeps getting better than the last.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Sam don't let the trolls beat you down, PTD is the best Tower Defence Game I've played so far (and yes, I HAVE played Bloon Tower Defence 4). I hope that the game wil be a big hit!

    ReplyDelete
  20. tinboy25 I agree, and it would make up the "strategy" part of the game.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I am on new grounds and it is upgraded so you might want to update that sam

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sam i have an idea for a chalenge level you have to colect a sertain amount of money you start with all 3 starters and have faster leveling up. POKEMONIDEADDUDE12

    ReplyDelete
  23. 1. Thanks again for the awesome game!
    2. I voted for Targeting system
    3. I just wanted to share that I JUST realized what you mean by 'waves' on these progress updates. The first time I noticed it mentioned was on Cerulean Gym and I thought it was going to be a special thing like the boulders falling in Pewter's. Lol. Me=dumb.
    4. Did this Zackirus comment or message you? I've been looking for his suggestion all over, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Does anyone else agree with me that it would be better to separate the posts to one about Ninja-ja and one about PTD? It's quite irritating to keep searching where the PTD update part begins.

    ReplyDelete
  25. @Toko - Click on the name and it will take you to the post he made on the forums.

    @Anon 4:16 - This made me last considering Ninja-ja had one sentence in this whole blog post.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Decisions, decisions....

    Really great options to pick from, but I have my doubts about which one to choose. If the achievements include: beat the level with Lvl XX Pokémon or lower, then I will go for achievements/Pokédex. I think a trading center needs a lot of time to make it function without bugs and that. For now I think I'm going for the target system.

    Also I agree on splitting Ninja-ja and PTD posts.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Sam will the pokedex include all our pre-evolutions or will we have to recatch them if we want them in the pokedex?

    ReplyDelete
  28. why would you vote for pokedex? there are already pokedexes on the internet you can use, and which are good enough.
    achievements might be cool though.
    voted for targeting system.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Anon 4:09=JERK

    ReplyDelete
  30. For the pokedex there will be different categories, like owned, traded, saw in the wild, caught from the wild.

    All the pokemon you have now will go into the owned category list. To fill out the traded or saw in the wild, and caught in the wild you will actually have to do those again.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Add more pokemon you havent added more pokemon in a while! Make onix catchable too!

    ReplyDelete
  32. @4:24
    at this rate it is going to be pokedex or targeting system and a pokedex would help with knowing who you can catch

    ReplyDelete
  33. Will Shinys have their own spot in the pokedex? Like will we be able to click on forms of bulbasaur and see the shiny form and normal form?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Awesome thanks Sam.

    ReplyDelete
  35. On a new levl can you make a meowth? I would really like one of those.

    ReplyDelete
  36. yay he arased that bad comment thanks sam

    ReplyDelete
  37. sam you should stop handing out free shinys ok i was annoyed but fine with it untill shiny abra came out you just ruined ptds ecomony like handing out 1000 dollar bills for free so sam how about if you keep handing out shinys use them once or you can hand out stones or an exclusivetm tht everyone can know like hidden power please keep my word in thought and i think anon 4:28 is crazy sam your not our god and please reply on my word good bye

    ReplyDelete
  38. @ 4:42
    the shiny starters and shiny mew along with shinys that you can only catch still count as "currency"

    ReplyDelete
  39. Hi sam just want to mention it because i think no one else mentioned it? :D
    well you fixed the charizard issue right?
    well you didnt fix the shiny charizard issue :P it wont attack kyogre :P
    can you look at it? :) thanx! :D

    ReplyDelete
  40. if the new update is pokeballs i will give out 3 shiny mew codes and 3 shiny starter codes so please change yur vote 2pokeballs or i will use them 4 my self!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I think the charizard issue counts as a bug fix

    ReplyDelete
  42. Suggestion: You should put a fast forward button so that the waves come faster and the towers move faster along with them.

    ReplyDelete
  43. hi sam i appreciate everything you do your awsome

    from anon 4:28

    ReplyDelete
  44. The trading centre would be something seperate from the current trading set-up we have, right? It wouldn't replace it? We'll still be able to trade between profiles or give codes away, correct?

    ReplyDelete
  45. will you add lvls that you can catch rare and legendary pokemon at because i really want to get me an articuno

    ReplyDelete
  46. Would the trading center is like a page so people can negotiate trades instead of doing it on the blog or does that already exist?

    ReplyDelete
  47. Just a few questions
    -Will there be a separate section in the pokedex that only shows shinies you've seen and caught?
    -Can you change trading pokemon evolutions? So you have a choice whether or not to evolve a graveler when it is traded.
    -Will there be achievements for story and challenge mode?

    Great work on the game Sam!

    Darren

    ReplyDelete
  48. @Peffles - Yes but in a more automatic way instead of just randomly posting. We have chat rooms for trading and the forum but I wanted to make something to make it easier.

    @Darren -
    - yes
    - I'll add it to the suggestions page thanks
    - yes

    ReplyDelete
  49. sam i have a quiston how would you get legendaries would you be given them when you complete a level or will you have to catch it the old fashion way and if so would you be able to catch them over and over again

    please reply soo confused

    ReplyDelete
  50. Legendaries will have to be captured the old fashion way also you will only be able to have one.

    ReplyDelete
  51. ^nevermind and everyone check the comment on 4:51 im doing wat he says cuz i want that mew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. One legendary unless you trade for more or cheat and copy more of them

    ReplyDelete
  53. ^nevermind the nevermind

    ReplyDelete
  54. thx soooooooo much and sam are you still gonna do more giv aways im not tryin to be offensive but i dont like the giv aways there bringing down ptds ecomony like anon 4:42 said you could giv aways stones or tms or maybe a pokemon you will be given in a game like in story mode like youed be given a evee

    please reply i want lots of answers

    ReplyDelete
  55. Also my compliments on the bugs/suggestions page, it is really easy to see now which suggestions have been made already. I have another suggestion which is not up there: Is it possible to add a volume bar to the music/SFX options?

    My compliments for all your work.

    ReplyDelete
  56. @Anon 5:07 - I will see what I can do about that.

    @Tyd - Added :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. sam will there be a prize 4 getting all the achievements

    ReplyDelete
  58. @Anon 5:10 - of course, I haven't decided yet tho.

    ReplyDelete
  59. There would be more achievements over time so maybe prizes for getting so many achievements and the way it is going this game is going to last for a very long time

    ReplyDelete
  60. sam you are the best (to bad i am living in australia) whoops did i just say that

    ReplyDelete
  61. Thanks for the reply :) A suggestion for the fast forward button: Unlockable after beating a challenge mode level where you get bike/running shoes.

    Also if the achievement system wins, will the be any rewards for completing missions such as pokedollars, items, aesthetic customization, etc.

    Darren

    ReplyDelete
  62. every one change to poke aballs look at 4:51 who

    want free shinyes we all do, who want free shinyes we all do,who want free shinyes we all do, who want free shinyes we all do, who want free shinyes we all do, who want free shinyes we all do

    say that on every page the first bit on last page

    ReplyDelete
  63. SAM, I got a question, will all of these 4 things be included each week or will it take a while for them to all be included??

    ReplyDelete
  64. wow um its a hard decision between pokeballs and the trading center

    ReplyDelete
  65. I like the idea of having a poll to decide what special feature is being added good thinking sam.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Sam if different pokeballs does win make the masterball a one time use and super expensive or else people won't battle they'll just capture every pokemon.

    ReplyDelete
  67. @Sam-- thanks for clarifying! Sounds cool.

    ReplyDelete
  68. great work sam!to let the people decide about what your going to add next is a really good idea! keep up the good work

    ReplyDelete
  69. Why the fuck does they prefer other pokeballs than targeting?????? There's no chance for them to resist when they're with red life. They only want the master ball ¬¬ it's already easy to capture. If appear pokeballs, will create a chance for the pokemon to run away and you will have to buy them. Geez ¬¬

    ReplyDelete
  70. more free, caught shinies:
    Zubat 14de6ad21e82bb, 17b2
    Zubat 14de6ad4653eaa, b680

    Pidgey 14de6adb2eec56, db46
    Geodude 14de6addb20352, bc01

    ReplyDelete
  71. You should make 2 things for trading
    1) the trading center
    2) using the codes in case people dont like the other way

    ReplyDelete
  72. There's a little bug with bodyslam: You can see the target paralysed even if the attack animation didn't start.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Thanks for adding my volume bar suggestion! Got another one if you don't mind :P

    Since a lot of people started complaining about giving away rare shiny Pokémon, I suggest to give away Pokémon with one or two egg moves for a mystery code hunt (such as a Nidoran-M with Confusion or a Pikachu with Volt Tackle). Maybe you can start up a poll about it after this one.

    Also it seems that Will-o-Wisp, despite being a status move, can get Critical Hits.

    Well I'll be gone now, good luck with the update!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Anon 5:38 The body slam thing is added to the Bugs tab

    Anon 5:43 Don't troll, everyone has different opinions

    ReplyDelete
  75. EEVEE
    just that put eevees on the game in all the pokemon games i have an eevee lvl 100

    PUT EEVEES PLEASE =D

    ReplyDelete
  76. i hope that different pokeballs wins the poll!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  77. is it supposed to be like this because the comments look different than i think

    ReplyDelete
  78. hey when you click on a pokemon it grabbs it but up, can you fix it please?

    ReplyDelete
  79. you should put eevee in

    ReplyDelete
  80. I HAtE ALL OF U WHO VOTED FOR DIFFERENT POKEBALLS I HATE U. Whats the point we already have the pokeball and its ok that we have to weaken and get a 100% of catching it when its red. So come on why not vote for the other options those are more sensible.

    But wait if you have different youll make PTD more like the pokemon games NOOO! this is PTD!. Come on i think i like it without different pokeballs

    ReplyDelete
  81. Heu sam a great add on would be the ability to change the difficulty for each level like 2x health for each pokemon but 2x exp or .5 health and 5. exp

    ReplyDelete
  82. anon 6:07, it is an opinion poll. different pokeballs would probably increase the amount of hp needed for capture

    ReplyDelete
  83. there is a bug, i used to have a trick for catching pokemon namely releasing the pokeball for as short time as possible, but sometimes when i try this now the pokemon doesn't get damage.

    also don't give away more shiny abra's they where the most valuable until they where gifts, if you traded something real good for it first like a shiny sandslash or gyarados you are really screwed now because you lost a super rare pokemon and got pretty much nothing.

    also eevee and snorlax should be implemented.

    targeting has more priotity than pokeballs to me.

    ReplyDelete
  84. glitch:
    a level 37 arcanine... not really sure hao it happened.
    The game started lagging, and every time i click level up, the pokemon stops moving. When I restarted the game, there it was O.o

    ReplyDelete
  85. When I send this game to other friends, they are thinking that the game not loading because there is no preloader or something, so it is just being blank for the time it is loading.

    A preloader is needed for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Sam will you add a stats thing to your Pokemon? I mean by it will display the exact stats for them. Like let's say a level 1 Charmander has an Hp of 11, attack of 5, defense of 5, sat of 6, sdef of 5, and speed of 6.

    ReplyDelete
  87. sam i just get my second shiny poliwag, if i traded with the old man it will give me a shiny jynx right? because i don want to loose it, please answer me :) love the new progress list, i can decide if vote for pokedex or targeting sistem X(

    ReplyDelete
  88. is it a bug that my Ivysaur evolve to Venusaur in lvl 32?! because my wartortle and charmeleon are on lvl 34 and they don't want to evolve jet :D

    ReplyDelete
  89. why doesnt charizard know flamethrower?

    ReplyDelete
  90. Hey Sam,

    I've seen this asked before but never seen an answer: Is STAB incorporated into the damage calculation? Like if Charizard uses Fire Fang will he get the damage X1.5 for also being a fire type?

    ReplyDelete
  91. Ivysaur evolves at 32 Wartortle and Charmeleon evolve at 36.

    ReplyDelete
  92. @ anon 7:22 ah ok thx :)

    ReplyDelete
  93. @Anon 7:16; Charzaird doesn't get flamethrower until level 47. Charmander however gets flamethrower at level 37.

    -Sir Wobbuffet/DragonTamerChris

    ReplyDelete
  94. Wouldn't pokeballs be a one-time thing? Like after the 3rd gym you get a better pokeball, then again at the 6th gym, maybe some more by the elite four? And would you be able to swap pokeballs like from a normal one to a dusk ball?

    ReplyDelete

  105. SHould i get the second one too? :3

    ReplyDelete
  106. Would new pokeballs even do anything? It seems like the catch rate of any Pokemon in the red is already 100%. How would they work? Would you be increasing the min amount of HP needed to catch them between each ball? like Pokeball is 1/4 health, Great is half, Ultra is 3/4, and Master is full? I just don't see any benefit of adding different pokeballs without some sort of catch rate system.

    ReplyDelete
  107. sam i thin nobody say it, there is a bug with rest, freeze the game and then all enemies appear together

    ReplyDelete
  108. hey sam. how long does it take before i get the ninja-ja update?

    ReplyDelete
  109. hey just saying but because we might get new pokeballs sometime, can you make the red zoen smaller, for us? because its suer easy as it is, i mean who hasn't caught a pokemon they really wanted so far, huh? and also it would be great if we could use our own pokemon for the challenge level and evel them up, it wold be a great training place :D

  119. Sam, I have an idea of what the pokeballs could all do.

    Great balls could be the pokeball's red bar but 50% bigger (i.e. 1.5 times the size of the normal bar).

    Ultra balls could increase the red bar to 1.5 times the size of the great ball's bar.

    Master balls could have the effect of normal pokeballs, except they also work on pokemon with blue health bars! (maybe add something separate for those pokemon, like uh.. pink bars? XD)

    great game sam :]

    ReplyDelete
  120. The pkm tht has hp moves like recover, belly drum doesnt work, swallow n other thing like tht r pointless cause they dont have hp

    ReplyDelete
  121. the whole point of blue bars are that they are boss pokemon!

    ReplyDelete
  122. the point of blue bars is more or less that they're already owned o.o;
    at least, that's the way I see it. it's illegal to catch another person's pokemon. hence, catching a blue-barred pokemon would be against the rules of the game.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Anon at 8:45

    you can still catch the other ones in the battles, and what about mt moons? and kyogre? kyogre i can understand remaining uncatchable, but the rest should be.

    ReplyDelete
  124. Um, Hello Sam & Dan. I just have one comment. The little "Shiny Abra" riddle solving challenge. You need to make sure your grammar is correct on all of your sentences. "Clue 2: What postion is for gameplay is the game Bloons Tower Defense 4 To help you on your quest for this clue checking out the TOP GAMES section will help you." How can you expect anybody to understand what that means??? That's all I have to say about the game. Everything else is just fine.

    ReplyDelete
  125. many of the blue barred pokemon are owned by team rocket and thus, have already been caught (one way or another)
    kyogre is owned by Misty. the only real exception to this rule that comes to my mind are the pikachu in viridian forest...

    ReplyDelete
  126. @hooksrtc

    I think that's how they're going to work, maybe great balls could unlock an orange bar, a little bit more health than red but normal pokeballs couldn't catch with. Then ultra balls could unlock a yellow bar at maybe half health and others follow that pattern.

    ReplyDelete
  127. to anon 8:42

    hp affecting moves will be for when your team attempts raids (like the old rod challenge), and might be added in multiplayer

    ReplyDelete
  128. I have now run into the evolution glitch twice in a row while evolving to garados. I thought that it was fixed?

    ReplyDelete
  129. YEAH!! sjiny jynx rules, is awsome :)

    ReplyDelete
  130. and master ball will have certain requirements to get, like completing certain achivements, complete pokedex or buying new edition of ninja-ja

    ReplyDelete
  131. Poison powder shouldnt increase in damage as level increase as it is a status effect. When my lvl 36 Venasaur and Parasect was in VF1 on a shiny hunt. Every pokemon that came through died in a single hit. I'm not sure if the same effect is happening with burned pokemon (from ember and the like)

    ReplyDelete
  132. Suggestions:

    1) Catch Rates to make new Pokeballs work:

    Pokeball - 15% HP remaining.
    Great Ball - 25% HP remaining.
    Ultra Ball - 40% HP remaining.
    Master Ball - 100% HP remaining.

    Reasons why? Fact is, even with the Great and Ultra Balls in the game, you still had to weaken an enemy opponent by more than 50% just to catch them. Making them anything above 50% is far too easy. Challenge needs to remain in this game, or what little there is now.

    2) TMs and HMs.

    When buying a TM, have a separate option menu when in a Pokeman's Profile (which needs to be GREATLY revamped and re-done I think now), that basically works like the Move Tutor. Removes the amount of coding needed to be done for it. Pretty much a C&P job changing multiple moves to just the one TM.

    HMs only obtainable through a grand Achievement. But not like the Old Rod. In the game, the Old Rod (or any Rod) were free. You just had to find the Fishermen to give one to you. In this game, Challenge Mode is like those free giveaway NPCs. For something like an HM, you need to put in some kind of big deal accomplishment to earn one. Why? In the source material, Red/Blue, you had to defeat a strong Rival or complete a part of the Story to get one. So using HMs as your Achievement system kills two birds with one stone.

    Also, as far as using HMs go? Teach an HM, for example Surf, to Blastoise. On one more certain levels that has a body of water, place Blastoise in a space that has a "secret trigger effect". After the level is done, have an alternate ending play out where Blastoise "Surfs you" to a new area with a lot of common Pokemon and a single Rare one at the end. Maybe even do this to get the Legendaries. Example, place a Blastoise with Surf on a water space on the Route level before Rock Tunnel, and it Surfs you to the Power Plant to catch Zapdos after (repeatable until you catch it, of course).

    3) Pokemon Center. Let's face it, having our Pokemon never tire out and leave no "risk" in using moves now is making this game way too simple. I think it's time to add in "PP" as a way to measure how "exhausted" your Pokemon are. Limiting how much PP each Move has gives a bit more strategy and makes people think more before they use something. Wasting Fire Fang on Caterpies? Oh no, suddenly you run out and now there's a high level Beedrill coming by that reduces move's PPs. It will make Players think and choose more wisely what moves they're making their Pokemon use during levels. And then after they can click a "Pokemon Center" button that costs a bit of money to replenish all Pokemon's PP, or even maybe pending on what level they're at, too.

    4) New Mode. "Trainer Battles". How about a Defending/Attacking rotating style battle with random Trainers you create, random Trainers from the games, and famous Gym Leaders/Elite Four/Rivals from the show/manga/games that are not able to be used for Story Mode? Kind of like Challenge Mode, but instead you're battling "one on one" with another Trainer.

    You could even take this concept and create a "Ladder/Tower" mode similar to Mortal Kombat's recent Tower Mode. Where you start at the bottom and have to work your way up facing weaker Trainers and then nearing the top are extremely strong Trainers. Each battle giving you money, bonus EXP, a random TM, a random Item/Stone, maybe an HM, and finally a one-time only obtainable "Poke Egg" with a Gen II Pokemon preview? Kind of like what we got in the anime when Misty got Togepi before entering Togepi's Generation's region? Could satisfy a lot of diehard fans of the show and history. And gives us all a new "challenge"/nostalgia of facing Trainers not in Kanto.

  140. Sam,
    This is a terrific game and it has been a joy to play. One minor suggestion, in levels like Cerulean Gym please put more space at the top so incoming pokemon can be seen before they are killed.

    sometimes increases click several levels. : S help!

    ReplyDelete
  149. yey, finaly the chance for the pokedex + achievements, nice one Sam.

    Just to add a sugestion, pokedex should also have (if it doesn't in your project) have shiny seen, shiny caught IF you seen one if 1st place ;)


    ps: sorry for not reading either the sugestions nor the 160 posts this time, but i've been working and have to wake up in 1h and half to do a presentation on sea snakes so...

  150. When TMs are added, will an inventory be added too? And also will TMs have unlimited use or single use while being rebuyable?

  151. Jw will there be an android version of ninja ja and if so when would that be available

    ReplyDelete
  152. Can we have a level with tons of waves just for training? Ridiculous that we have to sit at the computer for an hour just to level up from 35 to 36, etc... Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  153. I agree with Gon (11:58). The Pokedex should be able to record the shiny and normal sprites for pokemon.

    ReplyDelete
  154. I would want Pokédex/ Achievements or Targeting. so I voted targeting 'cause it's got less votes :)
    I agree Gon too.

    ReplyDelete
  155. hopefully the pokedex can keep track of how many shinnies we KO'ed too. bet i've got hundreds of them

    ReplyDelete
  156. I have a suggestion to make: as for the achievements, you could also give rewards for reaching those. E.g.: I beat the first level without any candy being stolen; i get 1000 pokedollars. I beat mount moon 2 without a loss of fossil rocks, I get a shiny pokemon.

  157. PTD Evolution have voted and commented on certain stuff you may want to check out Sam!

    ReplyDelete
  158. Hey Sam, I think you could make a level with the birds individually on different mountains. These are just suggestions Zapdos on an electric mountain with like 10 waves of strong electric Pokemon and then finally you get to verse Zapdos and what they could be after is some electric stones at a contest and you could be trying to save the stones. There could be like a super charged area only electric Pokemon can stand and same with with the other birds but different Pokemon and special squares(lava,ice areas). With Moltres, you could be trying to save fire stones from a fire type training school. With Articuno, maybe he's robing an old man(just made it up on the spot). I know I should of posted this on the suggestion page but it was a hassle to post on the comment thing because my wouldn't work

  160. to catch the green mewtwo, you protect old men and their coffee and mewtwo is genetically transformed if you want when you catch it, if you do say yes, you get a medium strength fast non shiny mewtwo and if you say no you get a strong slow shiny mewtwo, if you don't say anything mewtwo will break free and you can try again, you have to have upgraded your ball first though

  167. @anon 6:43

    Absolutely agree with you. It's fun to develop a game together with the developer(Sam), as we can always voice out our ideas and opinions to improve the game which I believe to a certain extent, it is OUR game, belonging to all the players.

  173. Sam and Dan

    sorry i didn't know that i wasn't supposed to do that.
    one more suggestion. when you face legendaries i think it should be a 1 v 1 situation like in the games.
    -pballer

    ReplyDelete
  174. Just a repetition of bugs that were already mentioned but are not on the bug list:
    1) Another bug with ally switch: If a spot was used by a pokemon, but the pokemon got teleported by ally switch, it can happen that the spot can't be used again.
    2) In MM1, Abra can teleport to the brown spot on the rock that can only be used by rock pokemon.

  184. sam, can you make that doble slap and fury swipes can make us see the health bar going down again, becouse now it takes lots of little amounts of health and sometime kill inmediatly. :) great game, i want to have the fossils, zakirus idea is awsome.

    ReplyDelete
  185. Have an Idea! A use for HM's
    You remember the rock type only places? well what about making that a little different. Instead, a HM's only spots? Lets say that you can only place pokemons that know surf in water, and pokemon that know cut in a tree spot, or one with rock smash on a rock? (By that i mean that pokes with rock smash and cut will technically destroy the rock/tree) Also making pokemon with flash ligthing up dark spots within the pokemons rang (plus a little more). Turning MM2 dark mabey? I think mabey making a NPC give you Flash at the end of MM1? also, what if it could be as if you had Surf, you could place a pokemon with it at a special water spot that can acess a place that sends out a special wave, like a place were Abra was more common? Of all the suggestions I have put up, I have never got to say how much i love this game and wish for it to be sucsessfull!

  187. (From Seatlle again)

    Sam,

    Hopefully you will take the numbers of the poll as priorities levels for those things, because I am really looking forward to the pokeballs so that I can go buy something very expensive at the store.
    Love the game and good luck with your dreams of game development,
    Sincerely,
    Crazymerio

    ReplyDelete
  188. Since you love players feedback here is my concearn:

    Can you please add more room in the "entrance" of the level? so we don't one hit them before we can even see them come (like in cerulean gym) I know it takes a bit more scenary to do but with all the coding and stuff, a bit more "empty" room can do no harm and would allow us to see pokemon before they are overrun.

    Doable Sam?
