What's next? PTD progress list

Hey folks Sam here bringing you the weekly progress list. First the usual stuff.

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 is on break this week, update will come next week.

We reached 3 MILLION views on Newgrounds recently, I'm still amazed at how big we have gotten, I mean 3 million on newground is not counting the views on the blog (463,109) and the views on all the other websites that have the game, so the number is a lot higher. I'm committed to finishing this game and letting you guys catch all the original 151 pokemon. So let's move forward together, with your support we can make this happen.

I wanted to say that this is a learning experience for Dan and me, we make mistakes just like everyone else. I will say that I regret giving out shiny abra and shiny charmander and that it won't happen again. The reason I'm not shutting down the charmander code is that it won't be fair that some of you got it while others didn't.

Also, I want to ask you guys if you have any suggestions to post them on our forum, the link is on the PTD Fan Links page, that way other players can comment on your suggestion and it's easier for me to find the ones that people are more excited about. My email is so full right now if you mailed me a suggestion there it might be a long time before you get a response.

Okay so on Saturday I asked "What would be the perfect update?" and boy did you guys have a lot of different answers. But a lot certain things keep coming up over and over. One you want a new story level, two you want new pokemon to catch, and three you want TMs. Most of you think the level cap is fine which I agree. A lot of you want a training level which I agree also. Some of you want a nugget bridge level and have many great ideas for it. So I will take all of these and bundle them up into this weeks update.

New Story Level (100%) - Nugget Bridge - Will Ash beat General Mewtwo? Did I really just beat Kyogre with two pokemon? What happened to Gary? All these answers and more on this level.
  • Level Intro (100%)
  • Level Layout (100%)
  • Level Waves (100%)
  • Level Ending (100%)

New Story Level (100%) - Route 5 - A training level with a new pokemon to capture, pokemon keep getting harder and harder as they try to capture some rare candy. Over 30 waves of increasingly difficult pokemon.
  • Level Intro (100%)
  • Level Layout (100%)
  • Level Waves (100%)
  • Level Ending (100%)
New Pokemon (1) (100%)
  • Graphic (100%)
  • Shiny Graphic (100%)
  • Add pokemon's stats in game (100%)
  • 5 new moves (100%)
New Evolution (1) (100%)
  • Graphic (100%)
  • Shiny Graphic (100%)
  • Add pokemon's stats in game (100%)
Add some TMs to the game (100%) - Similar to the Move Relearner go to the pokemon selection screen and press on TMs to buy a compatible TM for your pokemon. Once you start learning the move you will be charged even if you don't end up replacing the move for another. They cost 10,000 pokedollars each.
TMs available (20 added):
  • Mega Punch, Whirlwind, Body Slam, Take Down, Double-Edge, BubbleBeam, Water Gun, Pay Day, Seismic Toss, Rage, Mega Drain, Dragon Rage, Thunderbolt, Psychic, Teleport, Double Team, Metronome, Selfdestruct, Swift, ThunderWave.
When entering a preview code for trading you can now see which moves the pokemon will have. (100%) 

When beating the first Challenge Mode for the first time you will automatically receive the shiny geodude instead of having to insert a code to get him, you still only get one per save file. (100%) 
    Bug Fixes (100%)
    • Ally-switch: Making all your allies be on one spot. (100% Fixed)
    Final Touches and Distribution (80%)

    If I finish these up early I will be adding more things to the update that I want to add, like more achievements and the achievement prizes.

    As always keep coming back during the week to see the progress on the update, as always let me know what you think. Sam

    8. Why the regret about abra and charmander? o.o

      ReplyDelete
    9. :) Can't wait for the new update. After this one can you increase the level cap to maybe 45?
      Also, is the new pokemon Meowth? And will you meet Bill or is that in a later update? Please respond!

      -MatrVincent

      ReplyDelete
    10. @Feezer - abra is really rare so giving the shiny away actually made regular abra more rare than the shiny version of him which shouldn't be. Also shiny charmander is supposed to be something only for people that support us by buying Ninja-ja, I can see why a lot of people were upset by it.

      @MatrVincent - no level cap increase until after next gym, you will meet Bill in this update.

    13. There's a glitch in M.t., When you put all of your 6 pokemon on the bottom 6 squares,and when all the other pokemon took the rare fosils the level keeps on going.

    15. Sam, i think for a suggestion, when you click on something, (ie. mystery gift) it should look like you clicked a button. You know the little animation. Hope it helped,

      Whats is the new pokemon?

      ReplyDelete
    20. I have a good idea about the improvements but this is something different then the topic right now. Well my idea is to create a version (now we have red and blue) which will hold all of the pkm from both red and blue but also new adventures which means new stages etc. Of course i know that you are busy with current versions but this idea is more futuristic (when you create current versions)

      ReplyDelete
    21. This updte plan looks awesome! I hope you can pull it off. On the new levels will there be some wild catchables such as nidorino/nidorina, some of the rarer mt moon 1 and 2 pokemon ie poliwag, growlithe/vulpix, ekans/arbok and most importantly rattata? It's painful looking for a shiny rattata with the short 5 wave levels that they are currently available on. Also, for the achievements, do you have to beat each one to see the next? Lol at your "first" post!

      Darren

      ReplyDelete
    22. Sounds like an awesome update to come, hope everything gets done, don't forget if you have time add the other relearner moves. Here's a list for the ones I know are missing in case you never got around to checking.

      arcanine - thunder fang
      arbok - thunder fang
      ninetales- nasty plot
      parasect- cross poison
      primeape - fling
      fearow - pluck
      raticate - swords dance
      vileplume - aromatherapy
      poliwrath - submission

      I might be missing some but I think I got them all.

    24. hey sam, its me again for a sugestion, you can make the healt bar of the bosses (like kyogre) of 3 diferent colored bars, and talking about kyogre, maybe could be a chalenge level that we could use him using no cheats! If you like send me a mail, i dont have the ideia right now but i got to have later...

    25. Hi!

      Can you add the trading? the trading with people, as a shop or auction and people look for the pokemon that they need and they give the pokemon that the auctioneer asked. It's posible?

      Sorry for the vocabulary, I don't speak english.

      Bye!

      ReplyDelete
    26. its meowth just look up route 5 on bulbapedia and can none of you guys read comments before you post something?

      ReplyDelete
    27. People should quit whining about shiny Pokemon being available.
      I've found a few shinies myself. Am I going to be crabby if Sam makes them free? No. It's a game. It's a fun way to waste time, and that's it.
      If you spent money on your Pokemon, does it take away your shinies? If you don't trade with people, it doesn't make your Pokemon worth any less. If you do trade with people, you were gonna give it away anyhow.

      ReplyDelete
    28. simple and sweet, add Machop.

    29. @alejandro you speak better english than alot of other people

    30. Regarding Bugs/FixesJune 6, 2011 at 7:16 PM

      for the bugs/fixes could you please do the ally switch one? It's getting really annoying when metronome uses it

      ReplyDelete
    31. for bugs/fixes. if you release or trade a pokemon and no longer have a form of it in your storage, it wont be recognized in your pokedex that you ever got it. Make pokedex permanent for catches

      ReplyDelete
    32. @sam
      since it says 1 new pokemon and we are all sure it is meowth, shouldnt there be a new pokemon(2) instead of one since meowth evolves at 28 into persian

      ReplyDelete
    33. Thanks! =D

      you like the idea?

      ReplyDelete
    34. The game is turning out nice. Are you going to go into Johto? Can you please consider doing Johto once you are finished with Kanto? (Sorry if I posted this twice, I do not know if this sent the first time.)

      ReplyDelete
    35. @Anon 7:21, it says 1 new pokemon and 1 new evolution. Persian would be the new evolution.

      ReplyDelete
    36. You sir, are awesome indeed. I disagree with the level cap thing but... *sigh* whatever. I hope the evo/Poke is NOT Meowth...but it IS route 5. Oh well, there's always hope for a MACHOP later on :/
      Still, awesome ideas. Training is going well on MM2, but this sounds great too. Can't wait for the new level :)

      ReplyDelete
    37. this my commentt to the post previous
      You and Joey are like a herd of eevee escape from a Beedrill, one hit you and run away when you try to catch when you go to see where you see the Team Rocket was trying to steal their pokemon to the daycare, there appears eevee to capture level can be between 15 and 20. You can do a level of challenge that Route 5 you have to defense the Pokeballs of these pokemons Pidgey, Rattata, Mankey Oddish on a red version and Bellsprout Meowth in blue version and you have to catch eevee and pikachu with the red bar and a Nidorino with the green bar What do you think?

      ReplyDelete
    38. next time you add achievements please dont make them so much by luck it's quite annoying... make it something like not allowing any of the candies or fossils to be taken...ooh by the way tanks 4 da awesomeness

      ReplyDelete
    39. I also believe, if you could, that you should make a challenge level for the pokemon such as kabuto and omanyte. Once you win you have a choice of which pokemon you want. Or you could choose like the red version you get kabuto and blue you get omanyte. MAybe this should come later when you are going to get your 7th badge? If this does happen when you get your seventh badge, would it be possible to have the level at 30 just like the original game? This is just an idea.

      Ok, I was a little skeptical of last weeks update, however if you can pull off this update in full or even partially full, I will greatly be satisfied. However, dont push your self you have 7 days (you might want to put this one out Monday to give you some more time) this update seems far to massive compared to other weeks in which you have had trouble completing in the time frame. With that said, looking forward to the 2.9 update and cannot wait to see the new stuff your adding!

      ^^ it says Meowth under Lables.. So no point in looking anything up or guessing. Im pretty sure its Meowth.

      ReplyDelete
    42. @ Sam Otero: Ah, okay, I can understand their feelings :3
      --on the note of shinies, what about poliwag or vulpix/growlithe? Though they are a bit rare themselves...less rare I'd say than the abra, I haven't even seen a normal one O_O

      ReplyDelete
    43. @anon 7:02
      Im pretty sure theres more like:
      charizard-dragon claw,shadow claw, airslash
      blastoise-flash cannon
      I'm not sure if thats all of them...

      ReplyDelete
    44. sam, you can not stop the game because the only Golbat evolves from Johto, and other evolutions of Eevee too! also has several cool pokemons in Johto, Hoenn and Sinoh (sorry if I wrote the wrong name of a region)

      ReplyDelete
    45. I feel your pain everybody who has a Shiny Abra before the code. I got a Shiny Abra and I was LITERALLY dancing everywhere and laughing and stuff because they were ULTRA RARE. And then, today, EVERYONE and their brother has one. So yeah, it is annoying :/
      (Before, Shiny Alakazams were worth as much as like a Mew. Now? Worthless.)

      ReplyDelete
    46. @anon 7:02
      You're wrong. That's DEFINITELY not all. There's ATLEAST 20 more relearnable moves there. Charizard itself can learn THREE moves (Shadow Claw, Dragon Claw, Airslash).

      ReplyDelete
    47. @sam

      this just occured to me... is there any way you can make it so your three profiles add together when counting toward achievements?

      ie finding a shiny on ANY profile crosses it off the list on all three profiles

      i feel like its going to be a bit frustrating trying to find 5 specific shinies 3 different times...

      ReplyDelete
    48. Could you make this game avaliable on Cydia. so people with jailbroken iPod touch/iPhone can play this?

    50. Sam good luck getting TMs working, hope you get them out with this update.

    55. $650,000 unhacked poke dollars from a lot enjoyable grinding play time. Hopefully you take my "wisdom" with some consideration. I truly enjoy this game and i hope you reconsider not raising the level cap. I understand that the new pokemon will be meowth and persian but i really wanna see a machop with a full evolution for him. So if you do by a miracle finish this monster update try to work machop in.
      Thanks

    56. $850,000 unhacked poke dollars from another great grinding timer

      Hello, I am also wondering; PLEASE raise the level cap. It's not fair becasue I am Charizad user and he only knows 65 power move; Fire Fang and he is not too strong. Would very appreciate it if you raise level cap (not too much maybe 45 or even 40) so could have something to do

      Thanks for listening

    57. sam, could you add the move relearner moves( for example charizard has dragon claw,shadow claw,air slash) please?

      Thank you for the updates (:
      At first when I saw this game on Play Tower Defense games I was like but I already started the old Yellow version of Pokemon online. I tried this out & ended up loving it, to the point where I stopped playing Yellow Version. I'm looking Forward to the new updates & Thank you a lot (:

    60. sam, can you told us, not nessesary especific what it will be the achievment prize: a pokemon, an item, a TM, a HM, an item that will make us able to discover somthing new in a level, open a casino or a new mode, open a diferent map, let us get the different pokeballs, open the daycare to get eggs, with what is related?? ?.?

    62. Will the current achievements be replaced in next update? Or only new replacements will be added? Don't have time to do it now =/

      ReplyDelete
    63. (Going home tomorrow...kind of sad...)

      Sam,

      I just wanted to confirm something with you. Will the achievements that we are able to do in this game be permanent, or will we have to do them before the update after they come out? I want to know so that I can tell if I should start grinding oak's lab again for that rattatta. I hope they are permanent so that people always have the chance to earn them even when they don't have the time right away. As always thank you so much for the game and all of the time you put in.

      Sincerely,
      Crazymerio

    65. Dont Raise the level cap, if you are at this rate you will be level 90 by the 5th gym

      ReplyDelete
    66. Hello sam.
      I know you have said you will make a whole new story line when you make multiplayer. Have you changed your mind? Because if you keep the same story line, you will be able to work at single player and multiplayer at the same time. And if you got an epic story you want to tell(other then the one allready here) you could just make co-op story mode

      ReplyDelete
    67. You mentioned stats in this update. Will there be variation in stats for each pokemon (like a lvl 10 pikachu's stats being different between 2 pikas)? Personally I would prefer this not to happen, as catching IV perfect or good pokemon isn't all that fun in the original games.

      ReplyDelete
    68. These are amazing updates and I'm so glad at your success. Here's looking to a great weekend!

      ReplyDelete
    69. Sam, only one comment about Route 5. I don't think there should be any candies being captured. The reason Route 3 and VF2 are good training spots is that they don't end - MM2 is a great training spot but the level can END. So if you're training midlevel pokemon, there's a chance you won't finish the level. So I think it should be increasingly difficulty, but with no rare candies involved.

      ReplyDelete
    70. Sam, on ur suggestions list it says Exp. Share, idk y we'd need an Exp. Share when in the game its used for pkmn who cant fend for themselves while in this game they can be more easily trained.

      ReplyDelete
    71. And some more thoughts...

      Any chance you can give out version specifics again? Bellsprout/Oddish was good, so was Vulpix/Growlithe and Sandshrew/Ekans.

      Even if it's not specific to R/B it'd be cool.
      I hope you do that for Hitmonlee/Hitmonchan.

      Last thing is, if you're going to give out prizes, make them like pokemon in the beginning - things we see a billion of and wouldn't really need again. I'm thinking caterpie/weedle. Or, give away a Stone or something. Nothing major.

      ReplyDelete
    72. @xtrem: Not a pkmn like caterprie, that would be epicly pointless. a stone would make sense though

      ReplyDelete
    73. @ Sam Otero
      where is the trade chat at now?

      ReplyDelete
    74. Er...weedle -> beedrill, which I would say some people still use. It's beyond common so you can catch it in the wild, but it's not as important as abra/charmander ever will be.

      I can't really think of anything else besides clefairy that would work here, that hasn't been done - geodude, pidgey, jigglypuff, ratatta have been given away - all are very commonly seen.

      ReplyDelete
    75. Idk why you're not giving the other shiny starters, anyone can get it by using pokegen...
      at least this way's legit D:

      ReplyDelete
    76. Why don't you just make it so that no one can post comments on the code hunts if really want people to look for them instead of cheating like they have been? And I have to admit I am a hypocrite about this bc I have done it but at least if you do this you can block it from happening over and over.

      ReplyDelete
    77. i love this game keep up the good work Sam and Dan i can't wait for the future updates

      ReplyDelete
    78. We need a Mt. Moon 3 before anything after this update. Why? We never received the Fossils. Omanyte and Kabuto.

      To remedy this, I suggest making Mt. Moon 3 into a one-time only Challenge Mode level. After defeating Team Rocket Pokemon from trying to steal the two Fossils (Helix and Dome) at the bottom of the map. After you succeed, you're given the choice between the two. Picking one causes the other to sink beneath the ground and become unobtainable. And of course, the code only works once.

      Also, I would suggest toning down on the amount of times we're seeing Mewtwo and Ash and all the big players. It lessens the impact of seeing them do extraordinary things as "legends" in the Poke-World. I'd suggest actually giving a motive behind this supposed "evil" Mewtwo's actions too.

      - TLK

      ReplyDelete
    79. Sam, i want one more thing... i read above that you will give us the 151 poke (i know it´s far in the future).
      Two questions:
      1. you updated the pokedex, can tou put the info and the pokemon we saw??? because we saw onix but it isn´t there.
      2. i don´t have mew, will you give it some day no shinny por the ones that don´t pay???
      PS: sorry for that indian english.

    80. For the next mystery gift can you give a shiny Mankey please

      ReplyDelete
    81. Sam,
      Please stop giving away shinies for the weekly updates. It really devalues them. Start giving away TM's or pokedollars or something else along these lines.
      Thanks,
      Haunter

      ReplyDelete
    82. NO MORE SHINIES. You should have learned the lesson already Sam. TM's are THE BEST idea to give out instead, followed by Evolution Stones. NO NEED for more shinies.

      ReplyDelete
    83. dear sam,
      i dont know why you regret giving away charmander(i understand the reason why you regret giving shiny abra).if you dont give pokemon like that away they people are going to start to use hacks. at the end it doesnt matter if you have shiny or normal pokemon , in multiplayer we are going to start from zero. i know people might get upset but in multiplayer, which is going to be awesome(or at least thats what i think from reading the blogs and what u said),we are going to start from zero. And th ey are going to have an advantage.

      (i am a horrible writer so i might have a lot of mistakes , sorry about that)

      ReplyDelete
    84. That absolutely makes NO sense true fan. This is why:

      I have 60 dollars and everyone likes it and everyone wants it. However, I won't give it to anoyone as it's mine. As a result, those people who will not work hard enough and are lazy will start to steal.

      Should I give those lazy people my 60 dollars just so they don't cheat? Does that make sense? Cheats are between you and your morals, and there's cheating in every game. You can't just give people what they want so they won't cheat; that way, you're stealing the efforts of the hard-working people.

      Hey, with the shiny hunt, I actually didn't start playing this game until a week after the shiny zubat giveaway, but I caught one just before your most recent update, but it isn't counted in the shiny hunt, is there anyway to fix this? or am I just gunna need to get lucky again?

    89. I'm a bit in of a conundrum over the upset of 'rare shinies'. When there's no one to compete with, who cares if others have your shiny?

      Personally, I really like the weekly shinies and wish you'd keep doing them.

      ReplyDelete
    90. You don't need to catch the shiny pokemon in the achievments, only see them. So just grind a few levels while watching tv for an hour or something, that's all I did.

      ReplyDelete
    91. Sam is it if you see or if you catch the shiny that counts toward acheivments??

      ReplyDelete
    92. @Zane - you have to have internet active and at least see them in the wild.

    94. On the new levels what pokemon will you find besides the new one? I was hoping for some of the rarer ones from both mt moons so you have a better chance of getting sandshrew/ekans instead of restarting after every 9 waves. Also will rattata be in one of them so the achievement isn't so tedious?

    95. Dear people complaining about shiny giveaways (except for the shiny charmander, I understand being upset about that),

      Get over it. Once this game is complete, all these free shinies will hardly mean anything.
      That is all.

      ReplyDelete
    104. oddly i have a level 41 poliwrath now...it happened because of a bug that happens quite often in MM2 where hundreds of pokemon come and it never ends. my poliwrath needed leveling up so i clicked it and nothing happened so i kept clicking then clicked done cos nothing was responding. suddenly it was level 41. i then went to relearn to check if belly drum was there..it was. so now it knows belly drum but has no attack obviously since that hasn't been added yet

    118. I would really like to see a sound option and another pay method to support you guys :D

      ReplyDelete
    119. This game is great so far, and the next update looks epic. I have just three things to ask:

      1. Well, you already gave away charmander so does that mean we leave squirtle and bulbasaur out to dry now? I understand why you regret it, but it seems kinda unbalanced now for the starters. Maybe you could give away the starters and reimburse the people who payed with something else like other shiny pokemon and maybe a few other things. I do like the weekly shiny giveaway, and it's one of the many neat things about this game so it's a shame to see such controversy over it.

      2. Also, I wanted to ask if you'd make the cool down time on Dynamic Punch less. That is one of my favorite moves, and 54 cool down time makes it impractical to use. It's a shame because Poliwrath is a beast and that move would work so well with him if it didn't have that very high cool down. I understand that it has only 50% accuracy and you are trying to compensate for that, but 54 cool down time just seems a bit overboard to me. Maybe make it 36 instead? I'd love it at 18, but that's probably not reflective on the actual move. So yeah, 36 or lower please.

      3. Extreme speed is another one of my favorite moves. I believe Arcanine learns that at level 39, so that is one of many reasons why bringing up the level cap to at least 40 at some point soon would be quite nice. I understand that won't happen this update, but maybe one or two after that would be very much appreciated.

      Thanks, and keep up the good work.

      ReplyDelete
    120. Oh, ignore part two on Dynamic Punch. I didn't know you had already changed that.XD

    122. Hey Sam
      Maybe you could just give away new pokes that are exclusive to the giveaway.

      Example: You give away lets say Staryu, while you are still only able to encounter it as boss.

      ReplyDelete
    123. Hey SAM, a suggestion to you,
      Can you better the graphics and pixels of pokemon so that the pokemon images can have a good quality? They look you know very shattered. Instead of their body curves, their square shaped body parts are seen. Please increase the pixels of the pokemons.
      And SAM your works are always awesome.
      Onix and staru and starme and horsea are not added to pokedex. Can you say why????

      ReplyDelete
    132. Hey Sam/Dan,

      I'm a big fan of ur Pokémon Tower Defense game, and I want to add some tips for you guys!

      First: Maybe put TM's as prize for the new achievements.

      Second: Joey needs a really cool pokémon extra (like a Gyarados) and let him fight in the newest level.

      Third: You could get a power-up prize when you completed a level without losing one candy or something.

      These are my best ideas. If you try one, i'd appreciate it really much, even though i can't do anything else for you...

    142. the new pokemon is meowth, cause in the labels it stands meowth.

      and when is machop comming in? i really want machamp.

      ReplyDelete
    143. Sam,

      I'm glad to see you having regret about some of the shiny pokemon. While I like the occasional giveaway, giving out such rare pokemon so frequently takes all the fun out of the game. Finding a shiny pokemon in the wild requires patience and watching the screen the whole time. The fun is in the hunt.

      I am a grad student and employed full-time. I use my breaks to enjoy the game. However, when there is little time and guaranteed giveaways of rare pokemon, there is a high incentive to just collect my weekly shiny and let my strongest pokemon breeze through the new level while I study. Why waste my time looking in the wild when it will be there next week?

      Sam, this is a great game and you work so hard for all of us. But too many giveaways makes even the most dedicated, excited players lazy and unmotivated. I want to spend my free time being challenged and captivated by the hunt.

      Don't be intimidated or influenced by the cheaters, hackers, and lazy players. Keep going with the creativity and integrity that makes this game great!

      ReplyDelete
    144. Don't forget everyone when multiplayer comes along there will be no shiny giveaways only the people who bought ninja-ja will get the exclusive ones and if you want a shiny you can find it for yourself.

    151. In terms of glitches [or unintended data], there is a shiny Charmander floating on top of Charizard's head on the main menu.

      It doesn't really make sense to me that you're adding two new levels but leaving the level cap at the same place. Raising it to level 44 would make perfect sense. A lot of us (myself included) have already leveled our main fighters to level 36 with the maximum amount of exp points, so leaving the cap the same just doesn't seem effective.

      Also, Tailwind has an insanely low duration for the attack. Besides, what does raising your speed do in battle anyway? Does it make you attack faster?

      Thank you.

      ReplyDelete
    152. if i wanted one on one battles i would play a real pokemon game...

    156. If you select "Relearn" after selecting a pokemon in the storage, choose an attack and hit the "Relearn" button, and then you say "Don't learn move", it will still subtract 1000 pokedollars.

      Is this a bug or was this behaviour expected by you?

    162. Sam,

      Will there be variation in stats from Pokemon to Pokemon like in the original games (DV/IVs)?

      I would actually prefer to avoid this as I like the idea of perfection being achievable, though difficult, in the game. It wouldn't be feasible to catch all perfect IV shinies.

      ReplyDelete
    163. Finding a shiny rattata for the challenge is like looking for a needle in a haystack when i can only move four or five pieces of straw at a time sigh also has anyone noticed that like say Victreebell if you go into relearn moves it has moves i never even got the option to learn

      ReplyDelete
    164. @Anon 12:23

      It doesn't sound like a bug in my opinion. You spent your 1000 dollars to relearn a move then chose not to. What happens when you buy a burger then decide you're not that hungry? You don't get money back. Someone else was complaining about a similar issue when using an evolution stone then cancelling the evolution, thus losing their stone. Use your brain people =).

    170. @Turbo

      In regards to the level cap, please remember the game is not all about the people sitting here waiting on updates. This is a game being made while we play it. If the level cap were raised one of two results would come.

      One-The two new levels would need to be very difficult since we are able to have high level pokemon. This would not be good in lieu of the completed game as new players don't want to play MM2 50 times just to get through the first tenth of the game.

      Two-We would be way overleveled for the levels and the following several levels, seeing as how we are already overleveled for the 2nd gym.

    171. I love the game, Sam, but I do have to say that I was disappointed when you gave away the shiny Charmander. I donated early on to get mine; this makes it seem like it wasn't worth it. That being said... I'm still enjoying PTD a lot, so keep up the good work. I know you have the storyline set out already, but my only suggestion would be to get someone maybe to read over the dialogue of the cut scenes? Some of it sounds very... stilted? It's a pretty easy update though, to smooth that out.

    176. In genereation 3 (Fire Red and Leaf Green), you can catch mankey in both games, but in generation 1 (Red and Blue), which we are talking about, Mankey is a Red exclusive.

    177. Sam, epic Challenge level idea, i hope you go for it.

      Capture the Flag (Or Rare Candy)

      Simple really, you send pokemon out to et said desired object while you keep some back to defend yours, victory achieved when both "flags" are at your home base

      ReplyDelete
    178. The original games were not a grinding experience so long as you were thorough and fought a majority of the trainers. The PTD should not be a grinding experience either.

      I highly suggest that you make a new profile, and run through the game, and see how much you actually have to grind. This will give you an idea of the playing experience of someone who is starting the game.

      Of course, People will want a challenging experience. Even after the game is completed, people just might grind further. So It might be worthwhile to make a mode where all the levels are aimed toward people at the level cap. That will keep people who are waiting on updates engaged. The training level would also potentially serve that purpose.

      ReplyDelete
    179. dear sam,
      i dont know why you regret giving away charmander(i understand the reason why you regret giving shiny abra).if you dont give pokemon like that away they people are going to start to use hacks. at the end it doesnt matter if you have shiny or normal pokemon , in multiplayer we are going to start from zero. i know people might get upset but in multiplayer, which is going to be awesome(or at least thats what i think from reading the blogs and what u said),we are going to start from zero. And th ey are going to have an advantage.

      p.s.: in multiplayer we are going to start from 0 so it doesnt matter if you give free shinys now. that will stop many people from cheating.

      (i am a horrible writer so i might have a lot of mistakes , sorry about that)
