Hey guys! Welcome to another week of Sam and Dan Games and Pokemon Tower Defense! Let's get this show rolling.

First of all a lot of people are confused about this latest update. Why are there generation 2 pokemon? Why can't I keep them? Why are there birds in Route 2? Why can't I use the dogs on the new Gym level? Why are you only giving away 10, it's not fair! Well I'm going to tell you!

Most of my success is going to be dependent on how much fun and enjoyment I can provide you guys. I have to keep you guys excited about the game, provide a good flow of content updates, and I also have to keep the game stable and secure. To make something fun you have to have an element of surprise. People are surprised by unexpected and new things. This update was an attempt to shake things up a little and add some nice but temporary surprises.

Guys I will let you decide the fate of the dogs for this game, please vote on the poll and let your voices be heard. I'm listening.
Think about it, it is better to have legendary dogs and lose them than to never have had them at all. Something like that...Also the birds, they are not meant to be captured, they exist to give the dogs meaning. It also plays into the story, Gary has escaped the birds (see the Vermillion Gym level for details on how) and now the birds are going all over the place to find him.

About the non Generation 1 pokemon, Generation 1 just doesn't have enough legendary pokemon to fit into the story I have in mind.

You can't use the dogs in the new gym level because it would have made the level a lot easier which I obviously didn't want.

About the contest, life is a lot about being in the right place at the right time. Those 10 people just happened to be there and they got the job done. The reason I didn't announce the contest is because I didn't have it planned at all. Still I know a lot of you want a reward for beating such a hard level. So next update I will be changing the hard Vermillion Gym into a challenge mode and the prize will be a new avatar for either boy or girl. The avatar will be your character wearing a mask of either Raikou, Entei, or Suicune. Special Thanks to Forum user KimmyLube for creating these mask! Please vote on the poll to pick which mask should be given out for beating the the challenge level. The other two mask will be given out as part of two new achievements that have to do with the challenge level.
Raikou mask, regular colors for boys, and shiny color for girls

Entei Hat

Suicune Hat

WHERE IS MY MEW???! By the time you are reading this all your Mew will be gone. Let me explain a bit of back story on the situation. There was a time not so long ago that you could duplicate your pokemon and even create pokemon out of thin air! Can you believe it?!?!?! Anyways, I want to make sure that everybody who bought Hero edition or Donated in the past doesn't feel like it was a waste a time since everybody was getting Mew. Since I can't really tell which ones are legit and which ones are not in the old system I have to completely erase them and start again. If you ever donated or bought Ninja-ja Hero edition please send me an email with the subject "Mew Permission" and inside include the email you used to pay with paypal and your account email for the game. I will insert 3 lvl 40 mew intro your trading account that you can pick up for any of your profiles. But Sam I traded for my Mew?! I'm sorry to say that I can't really help you with that since I can't tell if the person that traded you actually owned a legit mew.

  1. Good Job Sam. I think that this blog will calm some people down, because you have explained it well.

    However my dogs have already disappeared... have you already gotten rid of them or not?

    ReplyDelete
  2. u should also make a challenge or achievement that,if u beat it, gives u the exp. share

    ReplyDelete
  3. This update looks really cool. Unfortunately my mew is probably gone forever sonce i picked him up off of some random trading code posted on your blog months ago. I never use him anyways haha.

    The avatar prize are a great idea. I'd like to see more variations in the future in avatar customizations, some items for sale in the pokemart, other in weekly mystery gift and perhaps some rare ones in the daily code!

    When the servers are really busy (around 2 EST) the save option is kinda sketchy. It flashes on the screen and disappears leaving you wondering if your new and leveled pokemon are safe. I think we need a save confirmation screen to enhance the save feature along with the sound fx of saving from the pokemon games!

    PS 5th!

  4. Sam i love your game but i have a slight problem with the taking the mews away. In truth i have no idea wheather my mews WERE real or created. Bu i had one of them and it was level 40. That helped me beat the new gym level because of psychic. Also because you did that the pokemon i traded to get the mew was also wasted since in the end the other person got a pokemon whereas i lost 2. I guess theres nothing you can do about it now but in the future is it possible to make pokemon recognizable betwwen the real ones and generators?

    ReplyDelete
  5. same here. my dogs are gone too. But will Cut be implemented in this update or not?

    ReplyDelete
  6. Alex, he removed them but the code is still working to get them back.

    ReplyDelete
  7. @Darren - Save confimation? You got it :)

    @anon 12:31PM - I created a system to keep track of the legit mews so it won't happen again.

    @anon 12:32PM - I will see if I can fit in cut. Thanks for reminding me.

    ReplyDelete
  8. mr. mime, diglet, dugtrio?

    ReplyDelete
  9. @Sam
    Can you really take away mews from people playing on other websites? Because someone just said that they had a mew and they played on onemorelevel.com. Plus your sort of taking away people's hard work even if they didnt know they got a created mew. Isnt their another prize you could give tot those who buy hero edition? maybe a bird?

    ReplyDelete
  10. I feel that new level will have something about Diglett, am I right?

    ReplyDelete
  11. i like this game but why are you getting rid of mew, if people have a problem with it they could suck it up, besides that great game

    ReplyDelete
  12. Sam, I posted this earlier but you didn't reply - "Sam! I've been away for just over 2 weeks and now my account won't work :( I've sent you my email but i dont want to miss out on the dogs or increased rates this week so please help!" - I really want to try all the new stuff before it goes! :'(

    ReplyDelete
  13. @Sam

    Thanks! Another thing that is a bit of a stretch for this update is to add a pokemon transfer system that doesnt involve the trade centre for moving pokemon from one profile to another quickly. It is too much work to put a pokemon up on each file, change files and execute the trade plus one of the pokemon is automatically put into your profile which appears to be lost at first glance.

    Darren

    ReplyDelete
  14. @anon 12:35PM - Close but dugtrio is an evolution so it doesn't count.

    @anon 12:36PM - v3.1.5 and lower account didn't lose their mew, but they can no longer transfer into v3.2 or higher so they can't progress in the game.

    @luxuz - yup

    @kyle - I had a problem with it.

    @anon 12:38PM - Your only solution is to start again on v3.3.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I traded some of my rare shinies for mews :P this is frustrating.how was i to know they were hacked?

    ReplyDelete
  16. there should be a challenge level for a non shiny mew, that would be fun

    ReplyDelete
  17. and just have the shiny mew be rare

    ReplyDelete
  18. I was using the dogs to try to beat vermilion but was some what confused at the story line and didn't know you couldn't use them. could you fix that?

    ReplyDelete
  19. I don`t know what npc stands for can someone help

    ReplyDelete
  20. an idea for pokemart: new items could be available after beating certain level, for example, rocks are always available, after beating cerulean gym you could buy rare candy or exp distributor (i don't remember what is called), after vermillion gym you could get some other items that boost stats like shiny appear rate, or atack bost, speed bost... just an idea

    ReplyDelete
  21. sam could you enable the funktion email address changing?
    trading system doesnt work with my mail, i created a new acc with a test mail and this one works.

    thx

    ReplyDelete
  22. his Sam gotta lot of bugs please fix them
    1. on challenge level mt moon 2 when you lose or press back and press on it again you have to choose your pokemon again because they're back in storage
    2 on story mode on the chapter select screen you can drag the chapters left to right and its the same in all the level select screens (inside the chapters)
    3 on challenge mode when you drag it any direction it jumps to the top left hand corner and stays there

    please fix all these and also could you consider a vs mode

  23. hey sam nice update could you add hidro pump as a TM please, excelent gamekeep it up

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sam, I'm having some trouble lvling my squirtle and geodude, i have got them up now but with alot of trouble, i wanted to lvl my squirtle to 40 so he could learn hydro pump, i wanted to lvl my geodude to 32 so he could learn bulldoze(pointless since graveler learns it at 36) but my game kept on bugging at random times for both pokemon when they lvled up, i press the levelup button, i hear the evolution sound but there is no screen for the pokemon evolution, the game completely freezes and the sound keeps on going, i have to restart the game to fix this.

    ReplyDelete
  25. another bug on mt moon 2 challenge level you haven't updated it to go past lv 36 it still say lv 36 please update it to lv 40/42

    bugfinder

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have a feeling the new Pokemons will be Diglett and Drowzee / Magnemite.

    Pontaan.

    ReplyDelete
  27. another bug this won't be important to most people but will be important to those 10 who won when the three legendary dogs use a move I don't think that that the writing that shows how much damage was done

    bugfinder

    ReplyDelete
  28. a raikou mask is still pretty cool but I still dont think the legendary dog contest was fair cuz you have thousands of people playing your game but only 10 get a legendary dog but I am fine with a mask I guess

    ReplyDelete
  29. @bugfinder 1:19 pm

    if a pokemon uses a move that kills some of the pokemon in the waves (1 hit ko), then the damage will not be shown.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I'm glad you got rid of all the "illegal" pokemon people had, I think it's absurd that people find enjoyment in a game where they have to cheat to win. So thank you Sam for doing that, also I can't wait for the next update. Your doing an awesome job Sam keep it up!

    ReplyDelete
  31. Sam, even am a bit sad for losing my mew, i know that this is the right thing to happen since i shouldn't have it in the first place.
    People that payed money for the game, deserve something better, i have no objection on this
    My only request is that you keep updating on a frequent basis and please add some more gameplay time (maybe longer waves) in each update since it's a bit disappointing to wait for one or two weeks just for 5-10 minutes of gameplay

    thank you for your efforts

  32. Sam

    I just looked in the trade center and found a level one Entei. Its not that big of a deal but its probly a hacked one.
    And I want to know what NCP Trade means.

    ReplyDelete
  33. @Sam - Can you check what's happening with my account, I can't login with it keeps appearing "Error - Could not reach the server, make sure that you have internet and try again. If you have internet then the server might be experiencing capacity problems. Wait a few minutes and try again." and I've already waited hours...
    I also can login with my brother account and with other 2 ones I have and it works perfectly but mine happens this since today morning.
    Oh, and I can login in the Trading Center, I just can't login in the game.

  34. My dogs are gone also and i tryed typing in the codes and i cant get them back, did you take them off the game yet? I dont really care that my Mews are gone i was going to trade them for some other rare pokemon. I hope we can catch magnemite in the next update, i already have a good pyscic type and i am sick of raichu but i cant wait for the next update and im almost positive the trade is abra for mr. mime.

  35. All of my pokemon that I put in the trade center aren`t showing up in my pokedex.

    ReplyDelete
  36. new story lvl no contiue thing to tell you what happens?

    ReplyDelete
  37. hey sam! is there any chance you could raise it to 44 instead of 42, because it would mean you could get solarbeam with ivyaur which would make it awesome as well a having charmander and squirtle with flamethrower and hydro pump!

    also just an idea, maybe there could be a challenge where you have to earn a certain amount of money like 2,000,000 so people are more conservative about how they spend their money, so it adds a new sense of strategy to the game. otherwise, like me, people have a lot of money and spend it as soon as they get it, so it would be an interesting and different challenge.

    keep up the goodwork sam!

    ReplyDelete
  38. think you can add lucky egg in the game and also chat rooms to trading center?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ok, I agree with removing all Mew but, why does it have to disappear from the Pokedex T-T

    By the way, why do Pokemon caught get deleted from the Pokedex when you release them? You should at least keep their name in the Pokedex with no Pokeballs next to it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. sam seriously the saving system always choose the worst moment to stop working i just caught 6 shiny pokemons i i cant freakign save, i never complain about the game i think it is great but i would love to save my progress i dont want to lose my shiny pokemon i really dont care about the levels i can get it later on since the cap is only 40 hope u can help me cause i gotta go soon and i stil cant save it ;/

    thanks in advance

  41. Hey Sam, love the new update. Got a few suggestions which could possibly be created in the next few weeks or so.

    Pokemon storage system - The current one is very difficult to use, especially with a lot of pokemon. I was trying to figure out which shiny's I still needed yesterday and it was difficult to arrange them.etc.

    An extremely minor thing, but I think there may be a small error in Jigglypuff's stats. Physical moves seem to deal very low damage, even though it has a lower defense.

    Variety in moves - it's kind of monotonous to see the same attack animation over and over again(especially with special moves), so having slightly different ones every now and then and/or a more epic one for a critical hit would be cool.

    And lastly - Pokemon podiums. Inspired by the area in mt. moon 1 where certain pokemon such as geodude can go, well it would be great to see more of these in future levels, but also, as this is a tower defense game, I thought it would be a neat idea for each pokemon to sit on their own podium when in a level, which could be a rock, log, cloud. etc which could be customised to each pokemon to add differentiation.

    Cheers, Andrew

  42. Good planning !
    But, i'm sorry sam. I really don't understand the "event". How can you give a new pokemon, and a legendary, mort powerful, to 10 winners while you have more than 1300 followers, and more daylies players ?
    I think do a event was great. But a event in a period, not juste a few people ...
    For mew, i agree with you. It's normal to give to donnates, anyone can have mew. For the dogs, no more ... It's not equitable

    ReplyDelete
  43. im guessing diglet cave is the next level.
    i got 2 mews from trades i rarly used but i only wanted it for the pokedex i wished it would of at least stayed record on the pokedex.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Great job Sam. I was wondering when you were going to ban all the mews. I'm one of those people who donated $20 and I'm glad that I didn't waste my money. I wish you could ban all the pokemon that were used by the code generator but we shall see. Very nice update!

    ReplyDelete
  45. im going to be honest, i still have a legendary somehow. I have not beaten the new level so im not one of THE TEN

    ReplyDelete
  46. I want a mystery pokemon egg in the game. There must be any pokemon. It costs about 12500 Pokedolars. (I am from Lithuania sorry for my English)

    ReplyDelete
  47. @ ~James~
    I like that idea (both of them, but I am speaking of the challenge lv one)
    And instead of showing your total money in the top left corner, it shows your 'Pokechange' a different currency that is only in the challenge lv. It could be once the celadon city comes, and it's one for the game center/department store. (Game center should have multiple challenge lvs here and there so you can get all the prizes)

    Idea about pokemart:
    How about in the begining you only have Stones available, and each badge unlocks something, for example, a super potion. When you get to the department store a great ball or something that costs a lot becomes available.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Eh, Sam

    the new level is crazy and the upcoming content sounds great too, but couldn't you add the targeting system already? I hate having my pikachu attacking sandshrews and geodudes instead of the spearows and pidgeys in the last level. The birds are nearer! It's betraying me!!

    And I go with Andrew about the variety in the moves. Would be so cool to see Fire blast illuminate in orange the screen when it makes crit, for example

    Thanks a lot!

    Pablo

  49. Sam my pokemons health bars are going crazy long and short. Can you please fix that bug?

    ReplyDelete
  50. I never could get a mew, ill admit though I am kinds of frustrated with how you keep taking away all our legendaries, I feel like I have nothing hugely rare to work towards nows ( I had raised several rare shinier lul 40 hoping to get mew) its your game, and hey would you make the codes for ninjaja stackable ( if I got all 4 shinys Id definitely buy it, but whatever I understand you need money n stuff. Anyways, looking forward to level cap increase, I have about 30 lvl 40's lol

    ReplyDelete
  51. hey Sam
    i enjoyed the last update and this one sounds just as nice!! One question though i beat the gym already(with a little luck), will this be considered in the challenge level or will i have to beat it again im sure it wont be to hard to do but i was just wondering?
    May the mews rest in peace

    ReplyDelete
  52. You have just raised the level to a meaning of life.

    ReplyDelete
  53. @guitardood - they do stack.

    @anon 3:07PM - haha.

    Making a new poll that I think a lot of you will enjoy.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Is misigno going to be cacheable in game?

    ReplyDelete
  55. @missgno - I'm sure he will show up somewhere in there ;)

    ReplyDelete
  56. Will we be able to catch the dogs in the wild if the poll votes yes?
    Chase98

    ReplyDelete
  57. @Chase98 - that is exactly right

    ReplyDelete
  58. If the poll goes no, can we still see them in the wild with blue bars? Also in the future storyline I think any generation legendaries make the story more epic!

    Darren

    ReplyDelete
  59. No one "needs" to cheat to win. The excitement in hacking is in the overcoming of a challenge. Sam, you once said, "Here is the hacked version." What happened to that philosophy? Just as well, I have successfully hacked after you abolished illegal Pokemon. It's just more of a challenge!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Ok thanks for clearing that up and the quick response.
    Chase98

    ReplyDelete
  61. Oh. My. God.
    Mr. Mime time?
    my team is coming together

    ReplyDelete
  62. for the low chance for the dogs, is it like the shinies where their health bar is red automatically so you can catch em quick?

    will this be put in the next update?

    ReplyDelete
  63. just wondering, for the mask prize, would we be able to take the mask off or if we did the challenge would we be stuck with the avatar with the mask? i also think we should be able to use whatever mask we wanted (even though i dont plan on covering the pokemon black/white girl's face)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Sam, great game i enjoy it play it all the time and am always checking in everyday to see the progress list. The new update looks like its going to be lots of fun and i can't wait for it. There was just one thing i was wondering if you could perhaps add this to the new update is a fullscreen option?

    Kothen

    ReplyDelete
  65. @Shaundra - There is a legit hacked version out there, gives you more exp, more money etc. I've be interested to hear about your adventures if you email me.

    @Yoshi77 - They won't be shiny but they will have a red bar to catch them instantly.

    ReplyDelete
  66. That is what I meant, not shiny, but caught in a similar manner with the red health bar. Thanks for clearing that up.

    ReplyDelete
  67. when will the dogs be catchable? is it next update?

    ReplyDelete
  68. when will you be adding classic mode and the other mode

    ReplyDelete
  69. @indeed66 - if it wins, (which looks like it will) then yes this update

    @unknown - in the future.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I know the hacked version. I'm asking why you advocate for that, but TRY to destroy my Ponyta, Kyogre, Voltorb, Horsea, Goldeen, Articuno, Moltres, Zapdos, now Mew, anyone over level 40, and whoever else is in the game, but cannot be "caught"? If it is because you want it to be fair for beating levels, and what-not, then the hacked version is not fair because one hit on any Pokemon makes a red bar. Essentially, one could beat any level by just catching Pokemon instead of defeating them. Regardless, nice game, and the challenge as a programmer is much more intense every time!

    ReplyDelete
  71. do you know what the game really needs? a way to breed pokemons just like in the original game .. I mean, would be so cool if I could breed (by paying pokedollars) my venusaur with a ditto, for example, to get a brand new bulbasaur ..

    ReplyDelete
  72. hey sam,

    i had a problem with the achievement pokemon. I tried to recieve the reward and i did, but when i hit back and it tried to save, it didnt. it didnt save because of capacity problems i think. but it said that i already recieved them, which i didnt because it didnt save.

    can you do something about this please?

    ReplyDelete
  73. Dunno if anyone is still having trouble with the new level or not, but I realized that you can do it with any level team, as long as you have two Pokemon with either Roar or Whirlwind. I just beat the level again, with my four attacking Pokemon being under level ten. The level of the other two don't matter, since they aren't really for attacking. If you just place one attacker in each of the four corners, and the Roar/Whirlwind Pokemon in the center (one on the right, and the other on the left, top and bottom doesn't matter) you can keep the Pokemon with the candy from leaving the screen. Even if you save just one candy, it's enough, so concentrate on at least one. If you're using lower level Pokemon, you will be on wave 40 for a very long time. But you won't lose, as long as you keep the Roar/Whirlwind Pokemon in place, and you keep the attackers on the corners of the screen. After you defeat every Pokemon except those caught between Roar and Whirlwind, move two attackers to the two remaining center positions, and finish them off. I didn't figure out the entire strategy on my own, I read it from someone on here. But I just wanted to say exactly how I did it, and that it can work for low level Pokemon. I was worried at first since my Pokemon are all around level 25 or lower, but even when I tried with a team of Pokemon around level 7, I still was able to win. If you need a Pokemon with Roar or Whirlwind, Growlithe and Vulpix are good choices, so catch two of whichever one is in your version. (Growlithe starts with Roar, while Vulpix learns it at level 7.) Or you can use Butterfree or the Pidgey line, though they learn Whirlwind a bit later. I'd go with Growlithe/Vulpix, if you don't have anything already. Just wanted to share that, in case people want to beat the level before it's made easier. Good luck!

  74. Can you get more than one of each dog on a profile or account? Will it be possible to get them shiny? If not I think the 10 winners should get shiny dogs as compensation

    Darren

    ReplyDelete
  75. About that poll, I would rather have the birds appear rarely in the wild over the dogs. I think you should stick with Gen 1 things for us first and foremost.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Sam,

    The Trading Center won't work for me. I've been using Google Chrome to play the game on. Can you only use the Trade Center on the other ones or something? Please respond. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  77. Sam,

    I agree with Amy. I also think you should stick with only being able to keep the 1st Generation Pokemon only.

    Great update by the way.

  78. If the dogs will appear in the wild i think the chance of appearing will be much much much lower than shiny.I would like if the chance be something like 0.001% or 0.002%.

  79. Oh they do? Sweet I probably will pick up a copy of grandmaster hero whatever when I get my next paycheck, it was hard to tell on the page. Thanks

  82. Sam,

    I love your game =) -but-there are too many bugs.Bugs that i found:

    when a pokemon lvl up too many times and you make him to dont evolve some times the screen stop and you cant click in anything.

    When you search for shiny farfetch'd in the trading center he dont appears but there are shiny farfetch'ds for trade.For a strange reason he dont appears.

    I love your game =) - but- if another of my rare shineys disappears like shiny mew i will few sad and perhaps stop of plaing your game.

  83. @Sam
    If I recall correctly in the original Gold and Silver versions I could see where
    Raikou,Entei,Suicune were are through the pokedex. Now I know that cannot be done (it would be cool though). How about through the Challenge instead or with the mask you can allow the people to get an item that will give you a hint on where to find the Dog, like Say it says route 5 well that route would just have a slightly higher % chance of finding that dog through that game play, up until it retrieves your data again. Idk just and idea that I think would be an awesome addition. Either case, this update should be marvelous!!

  87. The new Pokemon is Rhyhorn.

    Why? Level cap is being increased to 42.

    Rhyhorn is the only Gen 1 Pokemon that evolves at Level 42 (which was a GREAT band back in the 80's, by the way).

    Does this mean Brock gets some "lessons in love"? (LOL Level 42 joke)

    ReplyDelete
  88. i posted this on the last update but it doesn't seem to have been picked up. a way of finding out what people want to trade their pokemon for would be useful in the trade center. someone mentioned a chat room? just thought i's post this again to try and get it mentioned.

    cheers.

  89. are the shiny versions of ekans and rattata in the new lvl?
    I've seen loads of pidgey, geogude, spearow and several zubat, but no ekans or rattata
    If calcs don't fail me (I did for 7 ekans/lvl) if should take around 35 tries (still just statistically lol) did more a few time ago and no clue of 'em, anyone?
    thanks

    ReplyDelete
  90. So, Sam, are you getting rid of shiny starters, too, since you don't know if they're legit or not?

    ReplyDelete
  91. Hello sam.
    You once promissed me something, and i think you have forgotten it:
    I asked for an option to upgrade my donation from the 5$ pack to the 20$ pack. You promissed me it would be out some weeks after.
    This is some months ago, and i am still waiting for it.
    When will it be out?

    ReplyDelete
  92. I think you should keep the shiny rate for certain pokemon at a higher chance to find that others (such as pikachu). And reduce the chance for some, like pidgey.

    Statistic reasoning: This is based on *waves* of pokemon receiving 1.5% as opposed to actual pokemon, because there are 5 pokemon er wave. I just played Viridian Forest 2, for 100 rounds, and only 1 wave of pikachu appeared(this confirms my 1.5% per wave theory). During this time I caught 1 shiny butterfree, 1 shiny beedrill, and 1 shiny kakuna. This amounts to 2 butterfree, once leveled. One wave of pikachu, and two shiny butterfree, lol. This was on blue version.

    Pikachu has an encounter rate of 1.5% in Viridian Forest 2, and the shiny rate is .4%, as well. I calculated that 1 shiny pikachu will appear for every every 66,666 pokemon that pass. This means it would take 13,333 waves, or 444 level attempts to get a shiny pikachu.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Hey Sam, I noticed that there are several inconsistencies between the game and the generation 5 moves.
    Butterfree is supposed to learn Captivate at level 40.
    Clefairy is supposed to learn Bestow at level 25.
    Zubat is supposed to learn Mean Look at level 29.
    Golbat is supposed to learn Mean Look at level 33.
    Oddish is supposed to learn Natural Gift at level 29.
    Mankey is supposed to know Covet at start (or relearn).
    Parasect is supposed to be able to relearn Cross Poison at start.
    Persian is supposed to be able to relearn Switcheroo at start.
    Primeape is supposed to be able to relearn Fling at start.
    Arcanine is supposed to be able to relearn Thunder fang at start.
    Poliwrath is supposed to be able to relearn Submission at start.
    Arbok is supposed to be able to relearn Thunder Fang at start.
    Raichu, Nidoqueen, Nidoking, Ninetales, Wigglytuff, Starmie, Arcanine, Victreebell and Poliwrath are not supposed to learn the moves that their unevolved forms learn, although I assume you did that on purpose.
    Also, some pokemon are supposed to be able to learn Fire Blast, Thunder, and Blizzard as TMs (Vulpix, Charmander, Growlithe, Pikachu, Jynx, Gyarados).
    ...anyway, great job with the game! I'm looking forward to the next update.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I don't give a flying fuck about the mask.

    PLEASE DON'T CAVE IN AND GIVE US ANY GODDAMN DOGS. Only the people that slid in and completed your tournament should get it. Seriously, Sam, don't do this. No matter what no one besides whoever they trade them to should have it.

    Also great job on the challenge level. You should do that more often!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Sry sam I posted this is earlier but ive seen other posts before mine came up so I just want to say it again to make sure u are aware of the issue. I just was playing ur amazing game when I decided to manually save. Then I pressed back to the main screen to stop playing then I noticed that my profile on the selections screen said 27 pokemon instead of 80+ at this point I pretty much freaked out and apparantly I hav lost 60+ pokemon including shinys pls help :(

    ReplyDelete
  96. I kind of agree with Shaundra about the shiny starters thing because i got the shiny charmander code when it was the weekly code and i replaced my charmander with the shiny one. Now one of my strongest pokemon is my shiny charizard, who by the way looks very cool.

    Don't get rid of shiny starters, please.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Great Job also for the challenge will the reward be surf, so we can reach the power plant and catch the rare Zapdos?

    Also one more question. Will we be able to catch multiple copies of the legendary dogs or just one of each if majority which it currently is votes for the dogs (also please make the dogs level 40 like in firered and leafgreen in the wild, level 55 is way too cheap, and I still like my Charizard in)

  98. im thinking a raised lvl cap would be good soon :) got lots of pokemon maxed,
    ty for making this game i realy enjoy it :)

  99. Don't get rid of shiny starters you put them as weekly gifts already so that would be like 3 weeks had no gift codes

  100. Where will the dogs be able to catched at if yes wins

    ReplyDelete
  101. Hey Sam, thanks for putting those dogs in the wild, I was on vacation during the contest with the legendary dogs so I was really mad I wouldn't get to keep one. I just love Raikou. THANKS!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Hey Sam, great explanation especially about the how you went against the original 151 Pokemon only to be in this game. It may even sound like the game will continue beyond the Kanto region.

    I have some suggestions for you. Since it looks like the legendary dogs will be catchable soon but at a every rarer chance of less than 0.1%, why don't you add a shiny version of them too? and make it 0.1% chance as well (so it will be less than 0.0001% to chance a shiny versions of the legendary dogs). You could always increase the chances later, I think this makes your idea even sweeter (however, only make the rarer shiny legendary dogs always red bar to be catchable like how the game is designed right now. Since legendary dogs will probably have high HP, the regular version should just be damaged until red (and obviously a higher percentage chance of red with better pokeballs in the future)).

    You seem you're always get complainers which is understandable since so many people are playing this game now. May I add another suggestion to quench the "Mew" issue? Make Mew also catchable in specific wilds (your choice where) and also make them as rare as the legendary dogs with regular and shiny version (.1% of the already rare % of regular Mew). I hope I can at least get a reply saying yes or no and later update to my suggestions.

    Your fan,
    Jack

  104. @Sam: Really thanks to listen to us for the dogs. It's really more equitable like this. The 10th winners have a gift for the event, but anybody can have the same prize. Thanks to listen players, every don't do that, it's cool if you do :)

    ReplyDelete
  105. is it even possible to beat the gym???? i always die once all the raichus come

    ReplyDelete
  106. i think not letting the dogs be in the gym was a good idea. i beat the gym without even trying to use the dogs. it wouldn't be fair if people just beat it using the dogs. good job Sam

    ReplyDelete
  107. Oh yea, forgot to mention this. You're most likely removing the legendary birds from the game after this coming week's new patch. But I have a suggestion of keeping the "event" in the game for when you beat "Vermillion City" level by making a message popping up telling the player the legendary birds are chasing after Gary and can be attacked (not catched) at so and so routes/levels. This way, this event will be valid and make the story "alive". You can then removed this event once they pass another point in the game where the legendary birds are done with their chase (also make a message popping out to the player letting him know that the birds will no longer show up to be attacked in those routes).

    I think by doing this and planning for future events will make the game interested and not just go patch to patch and be forever gone. Maybe, you can even add a gameplay option so that event will continue to be there as long as you checked the box (applies to specific profile only) and only available to be checked or unchecked once that "event" happens within the storyline. Let me know what you think.

    Your Fan,
    Jack

    Sam I personally feel like giving everyone a chance for the dogs is worthless. I know you like to please all your fans but this time I think you have to do whats right and let the dogs go. We don't need them; we'll get our own legendaries when the birds come out.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Don't get rid of the dogs Sam! I love them way to much to let them go.

  110. Can you please lower the splash cooldown (i know this is random) since it has a high cooldown Magicarp doesn't get much expireance so it's hard to level up

    I found a bug on mt. moon 1. when you catch a pokemon, however much health it had when you caught it stays that way when it's put on the field.

    ReplyDelete
  112. For the people who beat Vermillion, do they have to beat it as a challenge as well? But that will mean that the easier version will have to be beat, right?

    ReplyDelete
  113. Did the legendary dogs leave us yet

    ReplyDelete
  114. Hey Sam,

    if you do go with Jack 5:25 I think that you should make it so that once you beat all the birds in every level they're in, you get part of a special object.( maybe a master ball i dont really know) So you have part of something then the next part could be any hard challenge, then the third a really hard challenge. Once you complete the object maybe then if you find a bird you can catch it when it's health is really low. But then you can only catch one bird, then you have to complete the challenges all over again to get the object

    -Mike

  115. Agreed with MIX. Please don't do this.

  120. With the pop-up for alerts when a shiny shows up in a level, will it pause the game so you are able to catch the shiny, or is it only going to be there without actually doing anything?

  122. Please don't do the pop u alert, it's easy enough to catch a shiny as it is... There are so many whiners... Put up a pole about it instead! Pretty much everybody in poketd doesn't want this... Please... For me? *Does puppydog eyes* XD

    ReplyDelete
  123. The freezing errors are getting extremely frustrating. It can happen whenever a pop-up occurs, such as a level up screen or the menu. I just lost a shiny Paras AND Clefairy at the same time trying to exit and save. Please try figure out this bug before the next version.

    -Michael

    ReplyDelete
  124. I agree with anon 6:28 i dont think we need a poput alert when i shiny is coming we should just pay attention. I also agree that you should put up a poll about it to see what the majority of your fans want but it really isnt up to me though since its your game.

  125. i sense 5 hours of farming for the dogs in my future. oh well at least i can train like 347 more pokemon to level 42. and I just wanted to say I am a huge fan of items that are difficult to get (shinys) that EVERYONE if they work hard enough or play enough can get, because it just seems unfair that not everyone should get a chance. like i said earlier, great game, and your game, so do what you think is best, Ill probably end up enjoying it immensly as logn as new pokes keep coming!

    ReplyDelete
  126. Well I had a feeling that the mew thing was coming. It really was out of control. I think this game will be closer to its original intended experience with their removal. If everyone has one, then they're no longer special. Another good call, Sam.

    BTW I LOOOVE the mask idea. I'm hopeful that this will satisfy those who are unhappy with not keeping the dogs permanently.

    I feel just as excited as when urge game was first released. You've got something worthwhile, here. And it looks like it's only going to get better

    ReplyDelete
  127. People who are complaining about losing their Mew need to remember that Sam said there will be a chance to catch Mew later in the game

    ReplyDelete
  128. I'm with Extreme. I really don't want the dogs or need them and I want to stay true to the 1st Generation only rule. Though obvusly the dogs will be catchable so at least make the rate insanly low like .0000001 or something.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Sam, do shines get more experience then non?

    ReplyDelete
  130. Sam, think of the challenge. For the winners, what do they get? The dogs 1 week ahead? Is that fair? Will you change the dogs to shinies in the top 10? You shouldn't... The dogs were a stretch as it is. Leave them the way they are. I know you probably won't because of the poll... but please... Think of the traumatic experiences the dogs will go through... They already have to control 9 clones, none of them shiny. What will happen if they have to control 1,000,000,000 clones, 9 nine of them and themselves shiny? Wouldn't that make them go crazy? :P
    731: Yes they do.

  131. To all the hackers:

  133. Hey sam, if you do a pop-up alert for when a shiny pokemon comes on the screen could you make it so that it pauses the game and we have to press ok for it to start back up. I only say this because I play with the game in the background, and i would hate to know how many shinies I have let go at this point. Also because if it is one of the dogs I would really hate to let it go by.

    Fun new trading glitch :) When you NPC trade for a Jynx it retains the nickname of the Poliwhirl or is named Poliwag with no possibility of changing the nickname. I'm sure this would be an easy fix for you. I'm sure it would come up with the new trade this week, anyway.

    Isn't a blastoise suppose to learn flash cannon from level 1? If it does, can you have it learn it please.

    ReplyDelete
  136. @Sam: Guess it can't be helped huh? Dogs are here to stay. That comment on gen 1 not having enough legends makes me eager to see who else makes an appearance, permanent or otherwise.

    If people want them to stay, fair is fair, but I can only imagine the reason people are in such an uproar is due to a select group getting them. Notice Kyogre didn't spark a heated debate?

    But, it does beg an interesting question. How far will it go?

    I accepted the fact that I couldn't play this game with my favorite mon due to it being out of gen 1. Now a group of gen 2 mons are able to be used.

    People seem to have an odd fascination with the legends. Don't get me wrong, Mewtwo and Rayquaza are beast, but even then, I've always preferred normal mons for actual purposes. The legends were always more like trophies to me.

    However, I am well aware not a lot share my opinion, so I suggest that if more out of gen mons are to be included, that they be restricted to legends. That seems more than acceptable.

    Although, even a powered up Mewtwo would struggle against some legends out there, like Arceus, so some might be hard to work in.

    Besides, the other gens provide great fodder for sequels.

    Lol. Sorry for the length. Sorta rambled there.

    I am so psyched for this update... as I am for every other update. So excited for all the new stuff! Thanks for the great game, Sam!

    ReplyDelete
  143. I'm not sure about including the legendary dogs. If you do I think you should include the Jhoto region pokemon and maybe some more levels, maybe some in that region or something. Keep version specifics so maybe Red gets Gold pokemon and Blue gets silver. It just seems if the legendaries of the region are going to be included than the normal ones should as well. Just my opinion, but I wouldn't go further than Jhoto.

    A shiny alert, I don't know. Will it get in the way of gameplay in any way? Personally I'd much prefer targeting but I supose you must follow demand to some point.

    Also, if at all possible, is there a way to make the screen bigger? So we can see everything or at least more of the field. It would help on the Vermillion gym and probably later levels to have a full view. Just a thought.

  146. are we gonna use our own pokemon for vermillion challenge level or are they already set there? If we use our own you should make all entered pokemon over level 40 become level 40 there or if we use liek level 50s its gonna be easyer

    ReplyDelete
  147. Oh boy. I can't imagine what those achievements would be. Hopefully something like "Don't use whirlwind-esque moves" and "Don't use ground type moves." It's probably going to be something insanely hard.

    Good to know that the dogs are going to be in the wild. Probably going to be playing for days trying to get them.

    I have six questions about the roaming legendary pokemon:

    1. If you kill them (though it won't be likely) are they gone forever, like in the real game, or will they come back like the birds in this week's update?

    2. Will this be across all profiles (i.e. one per account vs one per profile)?

    3. Will they appear in areas besides routes (i.e. buildings, caves, cities)?

    4. Can you catch multiple enteis/raikous/suicunes?

    5. Will they have the same moves as the mystery gift versions, or will they have their entire learn set available?

    6. Will they come in at level 55? I really don't want to see one on route 5 and accidentally kill it (though that doesn't seem likely).

    My game also froze when I hit the menu button was playing for like an hour without saving lost a couple shinies and exp... Not mad about it but I will be scared to hit the menu button until I see that it has been fixed

    How about a notification for trade requests?

    Also, on the nicknames why don't you add a "add nickname" button instead of it already doing it I am always scared I am going to trade for a charmander that will still be named Charmander when it is evolved

  154. Hey Sam I have a suggestion for a future update. Would it be possible to implement a sort of wave viewer, like a text box, once we've made it to that wave of the level? For example just a button to the side that opens and says what pokemon comes on which level? I think it'd be helpful. For the past two levels I wrote down what pokemon came with which wave and used that to know which pokemon I should put down when. It was kind of fun for vermillion city but a bit tedious for 40 waves at the gym. I also don't really think it takes anything away from the challenge, as long as you only let it show the wave we made it to so far. For example if I died on wave 20 my first try next time i can only view the pokemon of the first 20 waves. Just something to thank about. Great progress list!

  157. Glitch: I'm trying to lvl a shiny ratta (24), shiny meowth (17), shiny onix (39) on route 5 in chapter 3.

    Every time my onix lvls up, the game freezes. At first I though this was an internet error or some random error, but this glitch is repeatable.

    I'm in no rush; just lvling random shinys to kill some time. Just thought I'd let you know about it.

  158. Hey Sam!
    So I Just reached 1million pokedollars in the game, which is a lot of money, only because I've been very conservative with it. What if for every 1million pokedollars you could "adopt" a lvl 1 pokemon with 1 or 2 special breeded moves. That way people would be just sitting with exhorbenant amount of money and nothing to do with it. Just a thought. I love the game.

  170. So are you going to address the save issues clearly many are having? or are you going to keep ignoring it? This game has become unplayable to me now I can't play because it wont save at all it's always busy I can't catch a new pokemon and train it because I know it wont save so I would be wasting my time and would have to do it all over again same with the levels i can't progress because of it. Why did you change something that wasn't broken.

  171. Ugh. I have to start a brand new game on a different website because on newgrounds it never asked me to create a username/password for an account so i cant trade. >:(

  172. Sam, for the mask thing, I really want an on/ off button since sometimes, I want to see the real Avatar face. Also I want HMs! (get once, and use it forever for free!)
    As for Mew, I don't really mind since it doesn't really have anything that special other than its stats and transform! lol

  173. I think you should put things like Hyper Beam, Fire Blast, Thunder, and Blizzard, from the TMS to Move tutors. Maybe even have them cost something like 100,000 for each use. Either that or they need to be weakened in some way. Maybe with a failure rate? Like a 15% chance they fail to cast or something would be enough. You don't need it so low as it is in the games.

    And if you REALLY wanted to be cool. You could make up similar moves for the other damage types in the game. You've turned Hydro Pump into a Flamethrower for water types, so you could make up another move to parallel Fire Blast in it's stead.

  174. Is there a way to get rid of the legendary birds because i had to restart my game and i cant get past the route bc of the birds. >:(

    Well, you've got two options:

    1. Wait until Sam posts the next update and viola; the birds are gone!

    2. Get the codes for all three dogs (Raikou, Entei, and Suicune) and use them against the birds. Just have them intercept the birds on whichever side they come in on.

    Honestly, the only levels the birds pose a decent threat on with the dogs are Route 2 and Mt. Moon Part 1. Route 3 and Viridian Forest Part 2 don't have candy, and Route 5 has the wild pokemon running against your tower so...

    Also, for the dogs, have Suicune as the first one. Somehow, the birds are more prone to freezing than other wild pokemon. Then again, most wild pokemon fall before the power of blizzard.

  176. I won my Shiny Mew through a contest in the old PTD Chat. Do I we, who won them, still get them?

  177. Right, so... the game still isn't saving. I understand that this issue might take some time to resolve, but I would love to see it addressed in the next blog post. I don't know if the issue lies with the server capacity or the software, but please put improved saving on the update list! Thanks!

  178. Hey Sam, maybe for each mask, you could create a challenge (at your leisure) and have the challenges be gym related.

    Like have the Raikou mask be the reward for winning the Original Vermillion Gym Challenge.

    You could take the Cerulean Gym and add waves to create a Cerulean Gym challenge for the Suicune mask.

    Later, you could do the same thing you did this time with the Cinibar Gym, making the gym challenge hard, with the prize being an entei mask, and scaling back a tiny bit on the story mode.

    Just thought I would suggest this,
    Thanks!

  185. Hello. I found a bug. I can receive many of staryu and tentacool, but when I saw a wild shiny rattata it did not passed the achievement.
    Ps. Sorry for my English :)

    ReplyDelete
  186. OMFG, I knew this would happen!!!
    I knew that everyone would cry out at not getting the dogs to keep, and Sam'd be forced to cave in and give it to them!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I love the challenge of games, Sam, and i've loved this one! I Understand that you've got a hell-load of complainers at you to add the dogs, but please consider that, although i and those like me are a minority, we should still be heard!!!
    I know that the yes will win, but can you at least drop the rate really low, that way it will not become another powerhouse that becomes too common, like mew did.
    And I bet the next person to post will complain at this, but I don't care, This is my opinion and i'm entitled to it!!!
    Thanks for reading, and keep making the game awesome, Sam!!!

    Staryu is version exclusive pokemon but you make it obtained in both versions, so Shellder also will be obtained in both versions?
    Thanks for your time, your game is great, greetings from Poland.

  188. Reply to "Hello"

    Sam already said in his new blog that he couldn't give back Mews that had been traded. Sam is only able to track people who payed for a Mew.

    Sorry...(I hate being the barer of bad news)

    But if your lucky, maybe someone who got their Mews back from Sam will trade one of their three with you.

    I recommend you look around on the trading center for a new Mew (it rhymes...).

    I hope I helped, and if I didn't... BOO HOO 4 U!

    Yours sincerely:"THIS INFORMATION IS CLASSIFIED"

  190. In my honest opinion I think we should have till next weekend (Augest 5th) to have the double exp and shiny increase rate since the update was a week late, but it is up to you.

    ReplyDelete
  191. Sam... you're a great guy and all and really smart... but this poll is the stupidest thing I have ever seen on the internet... and that is saying a lot...

    It's the same as "Do you use computers?" ofcourse people are going to say yes... they're legendaries ofcourse people will want them.

    And for those who have commitment to the game? It is the same as the shiny Charmander debate again.

    Anyway I do believe that the dogs were quite a bad implementation in the first place, but you did it, and really it is unfair for people to be segregated because the competition was slightly biased towards the more "liveless" people (including myself :P) so all those who missed it were slightly harsh treated.

    REALLY what should happen instead of giving out dogs, should be the 10 should get a special avatar... like something Lt. Surge based... or Raichu based, to say that they completed the "Vermillion"... and then this can easily be expanded for those who complete others in the future? That also means when people look at profiles they see what challenges they played.

    Great game, but some wires are getting crossed... because you are supporting the hardcore fans... the people that pay and the people who stick by the game... and then people bitch and moan and you bend (and I know it is HEAVILY difficult to ignore the pressure from the people) so I don't know what you can do... because people will always be aggrieved... it is the internet it is what happens.

    SO I think you need to limit the special stuff you hand out. Paying people should DEFINITELY get special stuff because they damn deserve it for their support.

    But I think that if you wanted to show people it could be done, there could have been something less impacting on the game done with it?

    Thanks for reading, if you did.

  192. Can someone tell me what NPC Trade means.I need to know.

    ReplyDelete
  193. theres no point in putting in the dogs except to silence the babies who didn't get them..

    but life isn't fair boo-hoo .. if you didn't get a dog then DEAL WITH IT.
    the world wont end i promise.

    beides sam you already said they were gonna dissapear after the update, now you're going back on your word.. don't conform under pressure.

  194. BS, I traded my shiny Blastoise and Shiny garyadoise for that mew, i quit

    ReplyDelete
  195. A question was brought up Sam that didn't get answered. It might affect gameplay/trades for a bunch of us .....will the shiny starters be taken away like mew?

    I'm asking, cause if I get shiny starters offered to me as trades, I'll know better than to trade for them.

    I traded for a mew and lost a shiny, it's just one shiny, and I get the whole mew issue, so that didn't bother me.

    But if shiny starters will also be taken away at some point, it'd be great if we knew about it now.

    Cheers.

  196. I think on the LAST level you should run into Mew and it will help you defeat General Mewtwo.

  197. To be honest, I actually would have no one gaining the legendary beasts than only 10 people having it. I feel that this would be more equal or fair.
