Want to get the legendary dogs? Shiny Mew? or any other shiny pokemon in the game? Adopt them today using SnD coins! Purchase some SnD coins and get Ninja-ja bonus items free! Click here for more info.

Visit the PTD: Pokemon Center - a place to trade pokemon, get your Daily Code, adopt Pokemon, view your items and change your avatar!


Bug Report: Eevee Evolutions are showing up as Gyarados, I will fix this on v4.1.

I had a good time making this update, we are still missing the game corner and new daily codes but I will have those out by Monday. For now enjoy the Gym. This time around I didn't want to give you an impossible task so I added some healing for your pokemon every so often thanks to a special friend and also some assistance from your friend Joey.

I've never really talked about him here but my brother, Joel, makes films and he made a fan video for Pokemon Tower Defense,  it came out great so check it out by clicking on the picture below and tell him what you think on youtube. Like the video, subscribe to his channel, check out his blog to check out what other things he is working on in the future.

Added the words "Hacked Version" on the main screen of the hacked version of the game - Big red text will let you know  that you are playing the hacked version.
Fixing types affecting the wrong moves - I thought I had fixed it but I made a mistake in my code, this now works correctly.
Made Daily Code Reset at the same time every day - This is available now! Instead of the code's 24 hour timer triggering when you get the code, it now resets at the same time everyday so no matter when you use the code you won't lose time. A lot of you requested this so here it is :)
Fix typo on Meditate attack info - The duration text is now 1800 as intended.
Fixed Vaporeon Graphic - Thanks Haplo!
Where can I play?
I hope you guys enjoy the level, I took a lot of the feedback you guys gave me. A lot of you asked for spots that only allow one type to be on it so I added those. A lot of you asked for a gym with only it's own type of pokemon so I did that. Many of you also asked for Joey to help you in levels again so I did that also. 
The next update I will make the gym level into a challenge level, removing some of the help that you get and making your enemy stronger.
I'll be posting a new progress list on Monday, for now let me know what you think.

  1. Congrats for this game from Spain! If someone wants to trade an Eevee with me, tell me!

  2. also found a bug, when i put my charizard in a certain spot in the new gym he was always there and he didn't die. it was shiny too if that matters.
    but overall nice update, next you should increase the level cap.

    ReplyDelete
  3. I was annihilated by that dang Celebi so much to the point I got frustrated enough to record Celebi Annihilation Periods (CAP). I succeeded that way, so I knew how to win. Some Fire Blast, Psychic and Acrobatics landed me to dominate the gym. Like I said, I bite, Grassies! >:P

    And are you making the game corner like a flash or with a link saying something to get it spinning and then 3 pictures just come up with a message saying "You got 100 coins"?

  4. I haven't tried the level yet but that film was pretty cool. Will there be any more?

    i'm really loving this update!

  8. hey sam how's the game corner going to work? we get to gamble with ptdcoins i'm assuming then we get so to spend money buying shiny pokemon?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Sam,

    I think it's time to raise the level cap up to 50. Probably should be done ASAP. 10 levels per Gym. Thanks for the awesome update.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Sam, this level isn't hard. It's just too big.

    you need to add a resize option, so We can fit the whole map on screen. 75% of this level is just scrolling.

    ReplyDelete
  11. when are you going to put potions in the pokemart? I really would like them haha

    ReplyDelete
  12. Is that normal, the Enemy Celebi don't attack Celebi or Joey's Pokemon

    ReplyDelete
  13. awesome. I would like to see being able to either buy a permanent Pokeball upgrade for a large some, or buy X number of upgraded pokeballs for like 1,000 each or something like that. looking forward to spending my pokedollars at the slots. ha ha. also could you make it so we could just buy S&D coins without having to buy all the other stuff? just curious

  14. OMFG!!! I beat it with one candy left! It took me almost an hour because of all the switching spots with pokemon and using a pokemon to pause the game to check if any pokemon had come through other entrances. One of your best and most challenging levels yet sam. (ps I hope the next level is a lot like routes 5&8 :D)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I win! Also what was the point of putting future celebi in that spot not doing anything? Can't wait for game corner!!! And is there going to be a hoodie for the female? with shiny celebi hood?

    ReplyDelete
  16. hmm, no Tangela? :(

    ReplyDelete
  17. @VanHotten - Thanks from the USA!

    @Stephen5566y - Email the spot please :)

    @Haxing Cat - something nice and flashy would be great but would take more time. Some text would be easier to do.

    @turtleshell27 - that is completely up to my brother, ask for it on his blog or youtube.

    @passarbye - I'm glad you are pleased.

    @Seth - Only I can be first :)

    @Ben Han - You will have special casino coins for the game corner.

    @Ekar - Lol, pretty demanding eh?

    @Phinq - You would think adding a resize option would be easy but if I do add it it would take a while to make it work properly.

    @steven - yes soon!

    @anon 2:56PM - Yes, or else they would die quickly since I wouldn't be able to take them off the field and return them.

    @Javeron - I can make the coins without the other stuff but it would cost the same price.

    ReplyDelete
  18. @anon 3:08PM - Thanks a lot!

    @anon 3:13PM - Celebi actually heals your pokemon every so often. I'll have to ask Kimmy about the female version.

    @anon 3:15PM - Did I miss putting tangela? Bah I'll add it on the challenge level, sorry :(

    ReplyDelete
  19. hey sam are you going to make celebi a pokemon for the pokemon adoption like the legendary dogs? That would be awsome.

    ReplyDelete
  20. @anon 3:20PM - No plans for that.

    ReplyDelete
  21. hey Sam,
    You said before the update that tangela and exeggcute would be obtainable, but they aren't, are they?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Sam,

    Yeah, I suppose. I'm just ready to train my Pokemon to higher levels.

    ReplyDelete
  23. @anon 3:21PM - I said they were not catchable.

    @ekar - Me too but there's like 30 moves to do to get to 50. That's like a whole week's worth of work there.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Booya! Celebie Hoodie Avatar Rocks!

    ReplyDelete
  25. If this is set after Ash has become champion are you going to make it so Jasmine is the gym leader and then Koga is one of the elite 4.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I saw a photo where someone catch Celebi, can you confirm me its a fake?

    ReplyDelete
  27. concerning scrolling. maybe let us push the camera instead of dragging. it's not really comfortable as it is :o

    ReplyDelete
  28. just beat the gym, and i must say that most of the level was scrolling. the enemy celebi was WAY overpowered.
    it was quite a challenge for my all 44lvl team to beat it, and with one candy left at that.
    i liked how celebi healed you though, that was a great perk.

    ReplyDelete
  29. @anon 3:25PM - Yes.

    @William - It's fake, they won't be able to save it.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Sam... Raise the level cap to 46. Two levels at a time is very reasonable.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Great update! You did a great job on the level. A lot to do at the same time. Makes it tough, but beatable.

    Can't wait for the game corner! Keep it up :)

  32. JANINE is the Fuschia Gym Leader, not JASMINE.

    Jasmine is the Gym Leader of Johto's Olivine City.

    ReplyDelete
  33. @anon 3:30PM - What do you mean by push?

    @passarbye - Yeah celebi healing is a nice little thing :)

    @Ovamiat - Yes it does sound more reasonable even though I do want to get to 50.

    @Anna - Thanks I'm glad you liked it :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. For some reason, my profile never loads....I have been staring at the loading screen for an hour now..Gahh please help!!!

    -Jenny

    ReplyDelete
  35. @Jenny - Keep trying, there is a lot of people trying to play at the same time.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Cool level. I think it should be possible to kill celebi and if you do you get an achievement. Also next week it would be nice if you added some more shiny quests to previous levels. I really want a shiny clefairy!

    Darren

    ReplyDelete
  37. Sam> If you break it down into three updates (46, 48, 50), it'll go a bit faster than trying to go straight to 50.

    Heck, you could even go to 47 instead of 46 and do it in two updates.

    ReplyDelete
  38. New Pokemon (4) - Porygon, Scyther, Pinsir, Dratini (You can get these once the Game Corner Opens)

    Waiting for this, thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  39. @sam
    does that trial pay thing for ninja-ja apprentice still give you 3 shiny pikachus or is it just there and you havent taken it off

    ReplyDelete
  40. Hooray! Celebi! I am forever content. :) The new avatar is pretty cute, by the way (though a little bit too masculine for me).

    The new level was fun; the enemy Celebi kept screwing me over when I wasn't looking which resulted in me scrolling around the stage every second with the PokeBall out of paranoia. XD The level also gave me a reason to upgrade to Blizzard and Fire Blast (as well as use several Pokemon I had been wanting to use but just weren't as useful as others). Fun times were had.

    Can't wait for the Monday update! :D Keep making awesome things, Sam!

    ReplyDelete
  41. new level is sooo hard D:!!! i got so close last time, i had won candy left, but celebi took it on last wave D:<! please raise level cap or make it so we can zoom out, because sometimes i dont see pokemon coming until its too late.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I wonder if there's a way to survive the enemy Celebi... or better, defeat it. Someone needs to try using Parasect.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Rock Tunnel is too hard for me!!! please trade me something to help!!! I'm jollyman2000

    ReplyDelete
  44. @Sam: with pushing I mean, that the camera follows the mouse, when the left mousebutton is pressed.
    maybe push was the wrong word.xD
    but after thinking about it, it might not solve the problem.
    the problem imo is: when you scroll, you hit the screen-border with the mouse after a short time.
    maybe resetting the mouse-position to the middle while left mousebutton is down, or something like that. hmm.

    ReplyDelete
  45. thank you for giving a chance to us playing a very nice game.i who am a student am from hong kong.i love yuor game very much!!

    i have already finished the New Gym Level - Celadon City Gym. despite the fact that this lvl is very interesting, there is a bug.
    if i drag my pm which is going to be killed by Celebi to another spot,it will never die and keep attacking. just like this photo: http://min.us/mLa77rDOM .

    i am sorry that my english is not good. i hope u can understand what i mean. thank you.

  46. beat the gym! great work on that gym sam!

    ReplyDelete
  47. how is the game corner going to work?

    ReplyDelete
  48. sam around how much would it cost to buy casino coins? and for the casino prizes there's gonna be 8 prizes right? (4 regular, 4 shiny)

    ReplyDelete
  49. LOL, I've beat the gim using 5 charizard (with fire blast)and 1 parasect (aerial ace). This level is really easyer to do after you know where the 4 venusaur appear in in the 16th spawn.

    @sam: actually is possible kill the boss celebi? I've always retreat my pokemon when he appear.

    -Bern

    ReplyDelete
  50. That level was AWESOME! Celebi made the gym really unique (almost like Brock's gym when it first appeared), and the Venasaurs make it even more challenging due to the lack of spaces for Fire and Psychic types (would have lost the level if it wasn't for Joey's Charmeleon). Can't wait for the game corner! Gonna get me some rare pokemon. *whistles game corner theme*

    BTW, I saw Exeggcute, but where was Tangela in the level?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh one more thing when your pokemon gets poisoned or any other status effect, when you move them it goes away. It should stay on them or otherwise its too easy to beat the level

    ReplyDelete
  52. NVM about Tangela. I just saw your answer in the comments, though I'm not too sure if I'm looking forward to losing some of my support in the challenge level *prays future Celebi stays in*.

    Now I have another question: what move is Celebi using to heal my pokemon? Definitely not Healing Wish or Recover since those only affect one pokemon, the former causing the user to faint, and I can't think of any other healing moves Celebi would know.

    And lols at the eeveelutions looking like Gyarados before being sent out.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Sam, nice littl wink wink there wink wink nudge nudge... when you say monday do you mean you'll be working on it all weekend and whenever all of the parts are done it will come out or even after it's all done it won't be untill monday. For the lottery, It'd probably be easiest to make it like daily codes and tell you what you've won. Also, will the next level be pokemon tower, or route 8 pt II being a harder version wiht trainers?

    ReplyDelete
  54. Chris Tan> Wish. I think the answer is Wish, although it could be Healing Pulse...

    I heavily doubt it's either Softboiled or Milk Drink, but wouldn't be surprised at either.

    Speaking of Softboiled, if you remember your Celadon, there's a pond with Grimer in it. On the other side is a man who offers to teach Chansey Softboiled.

    Yes, this is a request to add Grimer and Muk.

    One more question: After Saffron, which way to Fuschia are we taking: Routes 16-18 (Cycling Road, with Grimer, Muk, Fearow and all those Bikers) or Routes 11 - 15, with Drowzee, Snorlax, Tentacool, Nidorina/Nidorino, Chansey, a flock of Bird Catchers and a school busload of Teachers and Students?

    As for non-Gen1 Pokemon on those routes, 16 - 18 offers up Slugma and Magcargo, while 11 - 15 offers Wooper, Quagsire (my favorite Gen2 Pokemon!), Happiny and Blissey.

    Either way, it's time to add Lickilicky to the idea board, as Lickitung is in the Kanto Safari Zone.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Nice level :), will be looking forward to killing these annoying celebis in the future!

    ReplyDelete
  56. Since that was the fourth gym are you starting chapter 5 next time you create a level?

    ReplyDelete
  57. @Ovamiat: Thanks for the reply, but I just checked Bulbapedia, and Celebi can't learn any of the healing moves you listed by any means, only Recover, Dream Eater, Rest and Healing Wish (plus Heal Bell, but that only heals status aliments). Then again, Sam did include moves that are not TM moves in Gen V like Giga Drain. Even with that, though, I'm not sure if Celebi can learn Healing Pulse, Wish (which would explain the cooldown time), Softboiled, or Milk Drink.

    Now I really am curious what Celebi is using to help my team.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Hmmm unbeatable Celebis... do I feel a Star Wars 2: Attack of the Clones? xD jk. But It could be an insteresting achievement to do. Killing Celebis

    ReplyDelete
  59. @Phinq: It isn't easy either.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Wow, the new gym is challenging and difficult! I needed some strategy with Helping Hand and Stockpile, but finally I beat the level. Anyone has defeated a Celebi? And I noticed there is no Tangela in the level, but the Exeggcute are annoying (I counter them with Jynx) Great job!

    A Spanish PTD fan.

    ==Mighark==

    ReplyDelete
  61. Is Celebi using Heal Bell?

    Also I would suggest having a challenge level for the good rod (which was in Vermillion :O)

    Though if you get rid of healing I think the challenge level may be overly hard, seeing as right now the way I had to beat it was use 2 Charizards, 2 Ninetales, 1 Mew or 1+ Arcanines all on Fire Blast and Helping Hand.

    Near impossible? Probably. I can't even comprehend how many times my pokemon would have died without Celebi's healing.

    ReplyDelete
  62. @Ovamiat,
    if sam is really cool, he'll let us go both ways to fuschia. ;D
    also sam, i can't wait for the safari zone!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Now with False Swipe I can catch rare Pokemon more easily. :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. @anon 4:39 PM

    Why wait for the future? Those little buggers are easily killable right at this moment! I've killed several already. :)

    ReplyDelete
  65. HEY nice level took a few times to beat, but i was wondering when if ever are you going to switch back to giving shines in the codes, i dont really care about the avatars they dont do anything but shines are useful. the codes were more fun back then. just let me know.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Sam there is a big with the apk. You can't start the new level, i have emailed you more specific details but i thought I would post here to let other people know :)

    Fantastic update though. Celabi? Yet again you excel all my expectations.

    Forever your No.1 Fan :)

    ReplyDelete
  67. One move bug false swipe with ignore red still kills them
    (Tested with mew)

    ReplyDelete
  68. Hey Sam,
    I was wondering if there is a forum for this game, similar to the ones over at GameFAQs. I checked and they dont appear to have one, I think it would better than simply adding another trade chat as anybody could make topics of their own. Maybe appoint a few moderators to keep it from getting over crowded with topics asking for dogs and mew. It would also be helpful in addressing a lot questions that you would otherwise have to answer multiple times for people here.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hey sam awesome update so many obvious cues to the possibility of continuing to the second gen.

    I found a bug btw. Every time I bring my Jolteon into the gym it turns into a gyarados

    ReplyDelete
  70. just played celadone gym. celibi said somthing about jhoto. YES!!!!! POKEMON TD2!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  71. i think we are now going back to lavender town, but the towers entrance is blocked by policemen. so we have to go back to the celuan gym level where we get fly! yes sam, we got fly before we could catch snorelax. we need to get to the top but although something is using gravity we manage it to get through a window in the first floor...
    we fight gastlys, trainers and cubones...and on top there is mew...

    ReplyDelete
  72. Hey sam,
    I have a suggestion for the trade center. Make it to where you can use multiple search criteria at once. For example, you could search both for a pokemon you want as well as a pokemon you are offering.
    -roflcopter

    ReplyDelete
  73. @Victor: I don't think it's Heal Bell. Heal Bell only cures status ailments i.e. burn, freeze, paralysis, etc. It doesn't actually restore health.

    @anon 5:46: ORLY?

    ReplyDelete
  74. hey sam, my SnD coins have not yet arrived and i bought ninjaja about 6 hours ago. do i have to wait 24 hours or something?

    ReplyDelete
  75. I got ridiculously close to beating one of the celebi's. It took some helping handed critted fireblasts from my 2 charizards, arcanine, and ninetales. If it hadn't been a boss I could have caught it :D

    ReplyDelete
  76. Sam,

    If I have a lot of pokemon that I'd like to put up for trade, it'd be nice to have the ability to just check a box next to each of them and then at the bottom of the page, be able to click a button that says "Create all selected trades". Also, it's be nice to be able to go in and change requests for pokemon that I post without having to recall them to my profile and such.

    Sincerely,
    MasterHoyt

    ReplyDelete
  77. Sam great level i loved the challenge.

    i'm the one that kept wingeing about needing more type-only squares and version specific pokemon so thanks for doing that with the green squares.

    is there going to be a safari zone?

    ReplyDelete
  78. Yo, Sam! The Celebi wave is starting to bug me! The Celebi keeps killing my pokemon, so I don't know what pokemon the other waves hold! Any advice on who to use or how to use them?!

  79. Oh, and also, on the avatar thing, you have a typo. It's supposed to be "Picnicker", not "Picknicker". Sorry to bother ya! ^^;;

  84. Almost beat the gym! Gotta do it tomorrow. Also getting really bad luck with the 100k buying thing!

    ReplyDelete
  85. I just discovered a new strategy, but it's not the most subtle one. It only works as a last resort, or time is wasted. It's to wait till the next level cap, which I may do if the challenge is way too hard. LOL!

  86. @ anon 7:14 PM

    Fire is not necessarily the way to go, remember what Celebi's type is, he takes 4x damage from a certain type. ;)

  88. The Celadon gym was really fun! Can't wait for the Game Corner. I didn't miss Celebi's dropping the sequel hook, either. Sounds cool!

    ReplyDelete
  89. I mentioned this a while ago, but I really feel the levels are getting way too hard for any casual gamer to actually enjoy playing. If you're going to make a challenge level of this gym, make the current level the challenge level, and make the regular level a little easier. Right now, the game isn't fun for me anymore! I have to look up a guide to beating almost all the non-training levels, because even after many tries with many different strategies of my own, I can't figure out how to beat a level. To make it easier, I suggest having the enemy Pokemon attack less often, or lower their levels (and thus their attacks' power) a bit. Also, on another note, you should really add a zoom function. Scrolling around is really annoying on the larger levels, such as the new gym level. Maybe incorporate a way to set the zoom in the menu? For example, you could have radio buttons or a drop down menu to choose which kind of zoom you want to use. Choices could be normal view (the current size), fit to screen (view the entire level), or even percentages (such as 50%, 75%, 100%, 125%, 150%). I think it would be pretty useful.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Just noticed a glitch while playing the new gym, if something gets hit by fireblast, then another from another pokemon right after(like within a half second), the second one doesn't do any damage. It makes it kinda hard to do this level.

    ReplyDelete
  91. May i suggest something to the game corner? they should be like a daily code depending on the gym levels you have beaten. 1 badge=commonly 2=commonly shiny 3=uncommonly shiny 4=easiest chance to get the 4 new shiny pokemon (glad to be 88 XD)

    ReplyDelete
  92. To everyone who thinks that the new lv is hard.

    I got up to wave 15 with just 2 charizards lv 44 using fire blast.

  93. "Joey, it's a little early to be singing that song *wink wink" LOOOOOOOOL <3 <3 <3 + "i don't remember you there" TUM!!! ahaha win!

    (the 2nd * is missing ;))

    bugs:
    - pokemon die after you remove them (if the attack starts before you click it you can take it but it will take dmg afterwords)
    - some pokemon "die" but remain there and their health go negative red then up. you can't select them but they're there
    - the slots when pokemon die some become grey others change to empty slots but remain blue
    - the typo I mentioned "*"

    ps: the lvl is cool ;)

  100. If you make the Celadon Gym a challenge level, does that mean that you will change the Celadon Gym in the story mode?

    ReplyDelete
  101. I beaten all the celebi's in erika's gym n dang was it hard.

    ReplyDelete
  102. Can you make a challenge based on defeat Celeby at 4th Gym? I think that is a good idea!

    Thanks for the update!!

    ReplyDelete
  103. @Sam, will we go back to lavender after this? Or is it straight to Fuschia

    PS can you make the next gym/challenging level have a better visual area? (scrolling so often is a pest!)

    ReplyDelete

  107. does anyone know what confusing the enemy actually does? i thought it was damage occasionally but either the damage is minuscule or it does something else

    can anyone help me? :S
    much appreciated :)

    ReplyDelete
  108. Sam, you did a really nice job on the level. I like how you incorporated the "Type-only" spots in the Gym, as well as the CPU partner system (Joey and Celebi).

    The only thing that really bothers me is the opponent's Celebi often destroying you on a level with such wide space, and you'll have to be fast to return them to your balls, but it's not THAT big of an issue.

    Furthermore, I was a bit disappointed that the Game Corner was moved to Monday, but that's nothing to get all angry about whatsoever, and if the Game Corner's a bit annoying to code and gets in the way of your time it's entirely understandable. I really loved this update.

    P.S. Is the Shiny rate for the Game Corner going to be higher, lower, or is it gonna stay the same? I don't care much for it, but it's just so that I know what to expect and don't have to go all wild when I find "OMG A SHINY DRATINI!".

    ReplyDelete
  109. Love the update Sam. btw wich pokemon can learn false swipe?
    Trade with Baraatje 123 please?

    ReplyDelete
  110. Hello Sam. Remember the player promissed Joey that they are going to the Game Conor. I don't care if you make a level in there or not(it would be epic), but i just want to see Joey's reation when he enters the Game Conor. I don't care if it will take all week to make that, i just want to see it:D

    ReplyDelete
  111. not sure if it's just me, but sam light screen isn't available as a TM to any pokemon.

    Otherwise great job

    ReplyDelete
  112. for a few time i didn't had the time 2 play the game.
    but started again 2 days ago but no shinys/ window advertising it.
    is it more difficult to shinys appear? the window stays on for some time or until is click it?
    maybe is just bad luck i'm having :p just to be sure.
    thanks for the help

    p.s. good job Sam, great game

    ReplyDelete
  113. How about some kind of alert that lets you know what entrance the attacking pokemon are coming from? for example if they are going to come from the right on the next wave that side of the screen could flash red so we know to move pokemon there.

  114. Hi sam i was wondering could u make for avatar mystery gift a starter hoodie or costume inparticualr i would love a charizard hoodie or costume from

  115. @sam I think you forgot to eevee and its evolutions in the pokedex. I have 10 eevees and one each of the three evolutions but the pokedex doesn't say it.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Sam, I have a weird question. I see a lot of people getting 3, 4, 5+ shinies in a day. I've been playing for a long time and going through routes at least 30 times a day and have not seen a SINGLE ONE for days. How is this possible that they're getting so many? They say they're not cheating and when trading nothing occurs. So what is going on? Do I just have shit luck or something?

  120. You say that we are going to have to get Casino Coins in order to use the game corner. How are we going to go about getting the Casino Coins?

    ReplyDelete
  121. Also, I hope we see something from Cal again. He was the "Handsome Guy" in the first chapter.

    ReplyDelete
  122. I just beated the new level, and i really love it because you need to be active all the time.
    I am one of the people who asked if we could do more levels with joey's help, and i am happy that you made one.
    Can you make more levels where joey helps us?
    And where did joey get his charmander from?

    ReplyDelete
  123. hey sam because of the pole we obviously have to beat the 4th gym before we gain access to the game corner, i was wondering if by any chance that by beating the 4th gym we acquire the coin case?? You probably know this but you can't play the slot machines without the coin case, just an idea and let me know what you think! Tristan

  127. wtf celebi doesn't know solarbeam. whats going on here sam

    ReplyDelete
  128. Sam the challenge levels should definately not use your own pokemon but ones you specify for us to use. that was the origional plan and it was a good one. please think about changing the challenge levels to all be like that.

    ReplyDelete
  129. I prefer the next challenge to be "Defeat a Celebi" ... like the one you did with Starmie on Cerulean Gym

    ReplyDelete
  130. guys, if u pay attention to dialogues,you'll notice that celebi says to withdraw pokemon when he appears, don't try to kill it

    ReplyDelete
  131. Whoa, whoa, whoa. I have the answer to Celadon Gym.

    PROTECT. No spot-switching needed; just a lot of Protect.

    ReplyDelete
  132. @Sam your forgeting to add the shiny quest to the new lvls. Remember ur planning to make a quest for every pokemon.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Glad to see everyone loves the hoodie, its one of my favorite creations to date :3

    However the hoodie was meant to be a unisex avatar. If enough people are interested in it being a shiny hoodie, i can get working on that.

    @ Sam, haven't played the game yet(too lazy to play on my phone), but I am looking forward to it after hearing all these rresponses

    ReplyDelete
  138. Great update Sam,one question:when gastly will appear on PTD?

    ReplyDelete
  139. If a shiny appears, does it only stay for 3 seconds or does it stay until you press play again?

    ReplyDelete
  140. Sam,
    I understand that you dont want to use only generation 1 pokemon but if you add legendaries it is like torture to not let us have them in the game will we eve be able to get kyogre or celebi?
    If you add them to SnD coins I expect that many people would get them if that makes a difference

    ReplyDelete
  141. Astonish makes normal types flinch.
    Keep up the good work.

    Also charge beam seems a bit overpowered... imo. 50 attack power hitting twice in the splash damage beam also raising the SpAtt with only 18 CD?

    Remi

  146. Where is the Game Corner?

    ReplyDelete
  147. This is what you should do for the Safari Zone, Seafoam Islands, Power Plant, The # Islands, Charific Valley, Hidden Village, and the Squirtle Squad. First for the Safari Zone you should have to pay to get in or not gain any money from the level and have a limit of 30 pokeballs. Then so you can only get to these levels at a certain point have these bonus levels be like chapters only you have to beat the latest level to play on them. Please read this!

    ReplyDelete
  148. Hey Sam one week you should just raise level cap to 100 :)

  160. Sam I am really not trying to sound rude right now, but it is getting a little annoying you ignoring me every time i try and till you about this. ALL MY POKEMON ARE GONE all but 4 what happened. I was not cheating, I was not hacking I was just playing. It said "you are already saved somewhere else" I clicked ok and it brought me back to the main menu. I click to load my game and i says you only have 4 Pokemon. I really would like to know were my Pokemon went. Please reply as soon as possible. I already sent you an email a day and a half ago and got no reply. I have tried to post on here already. I don't know why your ignoring me but please stop.

    ReplyDelete
  161. @Ovamiat
    Silver Wind already IS in the game.

    ReplyDelete
  162. @Nicholas - Not trying to be rude but do you really want me to solve this problem on a public blog comment section? Do you want me to ask for your user name and pass right here?

    If you or anybody has account problems please send it to my email so I can handle it properly.

  163. @Sam - Tell your dad i said happy birthday from your fans!

    -entei bound

    ReplyDelete
  165. i found a way to avoud CELEBI! you just get OUT OF THE WAY! NO WAY ARE YOU GOIN TO KILL IT! just MOVE your pokemon to a safer spot until celibi gets the candy and leaves your pokemon alone!

    ReplyDelete
  166. Anon 9/12/11 @ 6:06 PM> Tried it, didn't work.

    Besides, I believe you have to kill at least one Celebi to have any candy left.

    ReplyDelete
  167. hey sam i was just thinking, what if you put a little map of the level, that show where enemy pokemons are, so we dont have to be scrolling around to see if there are enemys

    ReplyDelete
  168. it my bros b day also

  169. Ya i am sorry its just really a bad felling i got that it cant be fixed and you were just ignoring me or something i sent you an email yesterday around this time and i thought you were just not caring or something. My email is nic1991cool@yahoo.com and again i am sorry.

    ReplyDelete
  172. if anyone read the intro to celadon gym, youre SUPPOSED to move your pokemon when celebi comes around. and dont put them back to their pokeballs or they will miss out on ally celebi's healing.

    ReplyDelete
  173. happy b-day mister Otero

    -Max

    ReplyDelete
  174. Great game sam. i love the new level. i think celebi is actually easy to beat. i used 1 charizard and 5 arcanines w/ flamethrower and helping hand. too easy. please make a cahllenge level for this gym so players can actually have a challenge with the level. thanks.

    hehe. seriously. and Sam, if you read this first, tell your dad i said happy birthday.

    ReplyDelete
  178. Stop asking for the level cap to be raised, Sam already said its around 30 moves.

    ReplyDelete
  179. Just use like 6 flamethrowers, its very effective.

    ReplyDelete
  180. So Sam are you late all the time or for just the stuff we want -__-

    ReplyDelete
  181. this is really dumb the game corner was pushed back to monday. i know sam is a busy guy, but i really was looking forward to playing it. get your priorities straight. if im donating to the game then i really expect things to be done when first said. no more push backs

    ReplyDelete
  182. What's the estimated release date of this update thing?

    ReplyDelete
  183. I think that there should be background music and some sounds (example: pikachu shouting PIKACHU!!! when using thunderbolt).

    ReplyDelete
  184. hey everyone calm down about the update, give him a break its his dads birthday so he obviously has things to do (family to see, etc.) lay off and just let him get it done when he gets it done. Especially Anonymous 7:48 and 7:51, you both just sound plain rude, if your this impatient than go create your own game and please hundreds of people, thank you. Tristan

    ReplyDelete
  185. I agree. Should be more respectful of the people who have given you a game that you enjoy so much with frequent updates. We appreciate the hard work and I know most of us realize you have a life outside of this right friends?

    ReplyDelete
  186. i find flame thrower better than fire blast for some reason-it seemed to work better in celadon gym. also, how come beam type attacks: flamethrower, charge beam, solarbeam, flash cannon, etc. all hit twice when a pokemon attack with it. does it do double the amount of damage or just 2 halves or it. ex: flamethrower is attack 90. does it do 45 and 45 or 90 and 90?

    ReplyDelete
  187. nice updated waiting for game corner

    ReplyDelete
  188. @anon 6:19 you can avoid all the celebii, but you must kill all the other pokemon but 1 for complete the level. (watch out for the 4 venusaur in the end)
    Anyway, you have only need 2 fire pokemon for the gym if you know where the enemy spawn.

    -Bern

    ReplyDelete
  189. i agree, flamethrower does seem better than fire blast: fire blast: 120 power x 85% acc / 24 cooldown = 4.25 total. flamethrower: 95 power x 100 acc / 22 cooldown = 4.3. therefore flamethrower is better than fire blast.

    ReplyDelete
  190. @Anon 8:02 PM

    I've thought of lots of ideas for this. I'll post them again.

    Ideas for the Title Screen.

    1. I think that on the Title Screen you should add some Pokemon background music while you're deciding what to do.

    2. And when you click on Venusaur, Blastoise, or Charizard they make they're Pokemon sound/say their name, while using either Solarbeam, Fire Blast, or Hydro Pump... depending on the Pokemon, of course.

    3. And then make the Mewtwo and Mewthree do something awesome in the background the whole time. Make them move or something. Or you could make them using an attack.

    4. And while Pikachu is using Thunderbolt, make him go Pikachuuuuu! Also, make the Pokeball smaller and make it open when Pikachu comes out if you can.

    5. Make the rest of the things look like the Title Screen. When you click on Start or Options, the black background doesn't fit with the new Title Screen. Make more Pokemonish, not just black.

    So, there are some ideas. If you can, please use some of them.

    Give feedback please. Thanks!

  192. I think it's time for:

    1) Items to become more prevalent. We need Potions now that our Pokemon are going to be attacked. Also, I feel like it would be wise for you to go back through all the current levels during a single update week and make it so every Pokemon from Level 1 to the present has the ability to attack us. If you just suddenly have them start attacking us without giving us warning, new players might get confused. Potions are going to be a necessity for this early game. And makes it closer to the Pokemon source.

    2) On top of that, we need some level descriptions. Having just a "Cerulean Gym", "Route 5", etc. title might not cut it. You should bring back the level scrolling feature, but as you scroll through each level in a Gym's Chapter, you give a basic description of the goal to win, Pokemon you can catch, etc. since the Pokedex doesn't have that information.

    3) Evolved Pokemon should have bigger attack radius. This is just a common piece of gameplay that comes from Tower Defense games. When you upgrade a tower, in this case Evolve a Pokemon, the radius should expand because they're more powerful. It will make people train their Pokemon harder so that they get that bigger radius to help them later on in harder levels (since realistically a new player won't have maxed out levels like most of us do to combat each level every week, they'll have much lower ones).

    4) Backgrounds instead of that empty black space. The new main menu looks awesome for the game so you should look into getting such graphics for the rest of the Menus too. It'd be simple to find a basic Pokedex image and just put in a scrolling feature to go through each Pokemon's brief biography on the Pokedex's screen instead of the current black and white, dull and boring listed format.

    5) I think, while it may annoy people, a fun idea would be to add in the "Pokeball shakes once/twice/three times" sprite when you move your Pokeball over top of a weakened Pokemon. And maybe have a very small rate at which the Pokeball might even fail to catch them. People will bitch about how it's too hard to catch Pokemon, but for God sake it's POKEMON. ITS ONE OF THE CARDINAL GAME MECHANICS. And I think it should be incorporated here. It could even be used strategically to slow down or temporarily keep a Pokemon in place while you deal with other pests elsewhere.

    6) A "Porta-Pokemon Center". Let's say someone isn't into the whole "have defensive moves to handle oncoming attacks" and just likes heavy offense. This could be something added to the top of the screen, a little Pokemon Center icon. Click it, pauses the game, drag one of your Pokemon to it, and it heals your Pokemon over a short period of time. Maybe each "X HP" it heals takes 1 second. X is the level of your Pokemon you're healing. So if you have a Lvl 36 Charizard. And it's really down on health? Drag it to the Pokemon Center, and for every second it's there it heals 36 of it's HP back. Which leads me into...

    7) We really need HP of each of our Pokemon displayed somewhere. It's just something so simple that can really help out Players.


    And finally...

    8) A Tutorial. A side-level of your character's Avatar watching a TV in his/her bedroom. And on the TV? The same Professor Oak (or something similar to) show that Ash Ketchum watched in the Anime Series to help him pick from Bulbasaur, Charmander of Squirtle. This could instead be used to show how the game works where you play as "Professor Oak" who instructs how the game works using the three Starters. Let's you preview each Starter before you have to make your real decision of what Starter you want to have.
