Top 10 Forum Questions of the Week:

1. ZKS:  Have you ever thought of opening up development to the community, like Valve does? Specifically, letting developers who know what they're doing build "Fan-Made" challenge levels? Releasing 1-2 with each update will allow you to focus on the story/enhancements while keeping hardcore fans entertained between updates.

I think that would be a great idea but an idea that would take a long time to develop, considering the game is only half way done and I haven't even started on multiplayer. Something like this will have to wait unless, you guys the players would want this before multiplayer.

2. Marth: Will we be able to fight Gary and Ash?

Yes and yes! That is all I will say.

3. Garuthebest24: If u were able to live in any region in Pokémon for the rest of your life what will it be?


Kanto Region!

4. Ume: When/Will you give out a Sneakpeak/Demo/Teaser of Hero Tower Defense? >: As in Video xD or a short Flash Game ;3


As soon as we have something we will post it here right away, that picture that you saw at the end of the last HTD tuesday is literally where the game is now. Right now you fight against an endless supply of whelps until your two characters die then that's it. Not a lot to do yet.

 5. Professor Smeargle: Since you can't include all the egg moves for pokemon in Daily codes, how do you plan to incorporate the other Pokémon with egg moves? (eg: Close Combat - Growlithe)

In the daily codes, I will add more in the near future.

6. ultraube: How many hours do you spend on most of these updates?

It's hard to really keep track of it all since I don't have a set schedule but I would say over 20 hours for each update.

7. Dollyface61: Will all of Kimmylube's avatars be in the game?

I'll try to find a way to fit them all when possible, v4.4 will have one :)

8. Cheatfreak208: Have you thought of the idea of Pokémon dropping items, which you can pick up. They would go away after a certain amount of time. And rare candies that have a small rate of falling from Pokémon and which you can not buy.

Pokemon will hold items in the near future, so I suppose if they are holding something and you defeat them that it would drop.
 
9. Hypermania: Will Kevin, at some point, work on the art for PTD if the chance comes?

He might, but we would rather he make HTD art for the time being.

10. Richard Harper: Hey Sam, Will all the past Postponed items/areas/bugs/extras ever be added? And will it include some of the bugs/suggestions from your own blog page?

Whenever I need to fill in some space on what to add to the game I will look at the suggestions and bugs pages. Most of the time just the story level and level cap can fill up the whole week. 

Well that was fun! Head to the forums if you want to submit your question and have them posted next week. 

So that's all I have for now, tomorrow will be Hero Tower Defense Tuesday so look forward to that. As always, let me know what you think.

  1. hey sam, did you notice the bug on the "chapter 5" thumbnail? it says chapter 4 still.

    ReplyDelete
  2. Looks like the Tower will be another training/capturing level. Will there be an achievement or changed Old Hideout level where you have to prevent the candies from being taken away.

  3. sam love the game

  4. 4th (hopefully)

    and @sam the bug pokeman is talking about is only before you unlock chapter 5. i noticed it on my second game file.
    Another glitch that i found is that when i use light screen with my starmie and relfect with alakazam it only seems like 1 is working. Can you only use 1 at a time or are both active but only one visible?
    Also just wondering if you beat the new challenge level on 2 game profiles on the same account do you get 2 shiny magnemites?

    Btw You have way too many shinies ,Sam (47 waves worth). Why don't you share some with your fans.

    ??? (???? in trading center)

  5. Hi Sam.Great update.Haunter and Marowak are my favourites Kanto Region pokemon besides the legendary dogs

    ReplyDelete
  6. hey sam, would you be able to make the pokedex remember which pokemon you have had, because when i send pokemon for trade i lose the pokemon in the pokedex and it gets really annoying

    ReplyDelete
  7. hay Sam theirs a mistake on shiny blastoise. bits of its outline color when its on its side flashes also got Pokemon to trade search Thomas bully

    ReplyDelete
  8. Hey Sam,

    Haha, my question got answered, ain't been on the forums since i posted that, just don't have time any more. Cheers sam, and cheers whoever put my question forward, I thank you XD

    Oh, sam, one problem. The .apk is becoming unstable on my HTC Desire, it will freeze when some moves are used/or when some pokemon move. I have had to download an SWF player and the SWF file from your blog, and i must say, it works almost flawlessly.
    This is for all phone users, if you have problems use the flash files.

    I really do love where this game is going and where it came from. You have changed everyone's view of pokemon and of tower defence.

    Keep up this immense work, your are an inspiration to all :)

    Forever your No.1 Fan :)

  9. for the daily codes, instead of the casino coins being 10, 100, 1000, etc. It should be multiplied by 100 also because it now seems very dumb to get 100 casino coins after paying a lot of money.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Sam, which way are we going? Bike Path? Or that other way that leads to the Good Rod? Then again, Saffron comes first. But after that, which way are we taking to Fuchsia? Also, are we going to the power plant sometime? I want Electabuzz. And probably need surf too.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hooray! A bunch of new pokemon and evolutions abound. That new level cap is putting everybody one step closer to completing the pokedex. On the flip side, it means I have even more catching up to do. Still think there should be a day care center of sorts but...

    It's about dang time the Pidgey family learned a powerful move (too bad its accuracy stinks compared to most). Heck, I've been waiting for most of these moves to come out! Shadow Ball, Dark Pulse, Bonemerang, Circle Throw, Drill Run, and the list goes on.

    The end is nearly in sight. But with that also comes an end to the story of PTD. Kind of saddening really. Sam, once this tale is finished, will you be focusing mainly on HTD, or will you begin PTD 2 (if that is ever a go)?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Sam, he means if your still on the very first chapters. I have also caught this glitch myself

    ReplyDelete
  13. Can u add the slots with Letters like you hit A and it will say 1,2,3,4,5,6 (the pokemon are in this order) and when you hit A and than 1 it will put the first pokemon in that slot, and you will be able to have 26 different slots to put pokemon. think about it. :) (:

  14. twenty fourth ?

    Thanks Sam

  16. Hi sam :)
    was wondering if you will be adding the chance to get a shiny from the slots when we play them :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. wow.. adding a lot of stuff in the next update. i'm really excited for marowak and gengar. i've wanted them on my team for a while now, so i look forward to their arrival. definitely looking forward to this update.

    on a side note, some one mentioned in a comment in the last ptd blog post that there was less incentive to use physical type moves over special type moves. i'd have to say i agree. moves like hydropump, flamethrower, and solarbeam pretty much lay waste to the oncoming waves. i want to use my primeape's close combat but by the time he moves over to the target to hit it, the target has moved a good distance down the path. whereas if i had someone use solarbeam, the target would've been taken out already(as well as the next 2 or 3 targets due to splash damage). there's just such a huge advantage to special type moves causing less incentive to use anything else.

    what i'm asking is could you maybe make the pokemon move over to the target faster or something when using physical type moves? or maybe with moves like dynamic punch, megapunch, or close combat the pokemon doesn't move over to the target before attacking and instead the "fist" animation just appears over the target.

    just an idea.. again, really looking forward to this update. keep up the great work sam.

  18. 19th!

    anyway
    is it possible if you could make a lvl that needs a password to play and only if u finish the game you can use it once a day like and you get much more exp and all the pkm are red hp so u can catch them and everyday there are different pokemon

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hey Sam thanks for adding the fast forward thing that is a great add.

  20. Just got my second shiny charmander from daily code in like a week. forgot to do it last night so i did it now and i got one wooo!!!

  21. 4th maybe ??

    Can you put up a shiny mew up for trade ??
    At the pokemon center nobody wants to trade a shiny mew. They just put it up for trade.
    And in the earlier post u replied to a comment and said that you will give the pkmn center a lot of 'love'.But I just dont see it in the progress list.

    ReplyDelete
  22. @sam

    Quick question: after lv 55 are you going to keep raising the lv cap or wait a few weeks. I'm struggling to keep up as it is. Most people keep a team of 6 at max lv. I try to keep 20 pokemon of all different types but atm even though cap is 52 most of my pokemon are only 48. =(

  23. "7. Dollyface61: Will all of Kimmylube's avatars be in the game?

    I'll try to find a way to fit them all when possible, v4.4 will have one :) "

    You could just add all of them to the game now, and then make us be able to buy them for SnD coins, just if some one wants them before every one else:D I think more would do this even avatar chat comes out, because it would be epic to run around with an avatar no one else got

    ReplyDelete
  24. Got an idea... you should have an option to make pokemon level up automatically.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Hey SAM

    I want to suggest about the STORY MODE, why don't you try to make a level/scene which is in NIGHTTIME? It would be cool especially when you do that in SAFFRON CITY. .. . what do you think SAM??

    Think about it SAM. . tnx

    ReplyDelete
  26. Sam... Bug Victreebel learns leaf Storm AND Leaf Blade at level 47 but it only asks if you want to lean Leaf Storm

    ReplyDelete
  27. hey Sam,will you increase the shiny rate by the next update????

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hey, I just got a great idea from your training level. I though you could put in a training center where you train your Pokemon against random Pokemon. I think it should go on until the player wants it to stop (so basically it goes forever) and the Pokemon are always a couple of levels above the highest in your current party. You could also add speeds of the Pokemon and the rate which they come out so you can train for anything. You could make it so that you don't gain much experience otherwise you could just leave it on and come back every 5 minutes, so rather than leveling up your Pokemon it'd train your skill.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Thanks Sam was so anxious to have and Dragonite Gastly! I am Brazilian and I love your game!

  30. @sam

    I NOTICED A LITTLE BUG. PORYGON DOES NOT LEARN DISCHARGE AT LV.40. THE MOVE IS ONLY AVAILABLE UNDER THE RELEARN CATEGOGY.

    ReplyDelete
  31. The ghost family of Kanto <3. You should make an achievement for shiny Gastly

    ReplyDelete
  32. LOL, will there be a weekly level cap increase now?

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hey Sam,

    Is it just me, or does the Stone Edge animation look exactly like Rock Blast? Judging by the move's description, I figured that it would look different and might be a bug. Love the game, btw. Sundays are always an exciting day for me, doubly so now that football is on, too.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Shadow Ball and Dark Pulse TM!

    ReplyDelete
  35. all those shinies...... so close and yet so far away. at least I will be able to get all the game corner shinies eventually!

    ReplyDelete
  36. sam, i saw a bug: i am using Steamroller with my shiny golem, and his graphic turns regular (sorry bad english)

    ReplyDelete
  37. @forceddj - I haven't decided if the new level will be a simple level, I might try to do something more unique since we are getting ghost now. I think there will be an achievement for beating the team rocket hideout level. Not sure if I will have enough time this week.

    @anon 12:22AM - Thanks for loving the game :)

    @??? - Okay I will fix the chapter five bug (showing chapter 4 when you haven't unlocked it), I think with light screen and reflect it only counts as one, I will have to look into that. Yes if you beat the challenge level on a second profile you will get another shiny. I try to share shiny pokemon when I get the chance, they are hard to find!

    @Adrian - Glad you like the new update :)

    @imjeffy98 - Big big thing that I forgot to add (pokedex keeping track of what you see and catch even if you trade), I might not have enough time to finish it but I will add it to the list.

    @thomas - People keep mentioning the shiny blastoise graphic mistake, I will take care of that this week.

    @Richard - Thanks again for the kind words, I am aware that the apk is chugging but there really isn't much I can do. I am glad to hear that getting a swf player works wonders.

    @Rex - I do think that the prizes for the daily code should be more casino coins I will fix that right up.

    @santoryu - I would think we are headed to Saffron first after lavender town, after that I'm not sure which path to take first. Also you will need surf to get to the power plant.

    @Chris Tan - We are only half way there! I think there will be a main focus on HTD but I do understand the demand for PTD 2. I'm thinking about it daily. HTD is definitely happening and will get a lot of attention but HTD will not be able to have weekly updates, since the graphics for HTD are all custom, so I will have to have something there to make up for that.

    @n1nja - not completely sure what you mean.

    @Snobro - You do have a chance to get a shiny when you buy a pokemon from the casino.

    @anon 2:20AM - Yeah beam attacks are really good at the moment so I will have to see how I will make physical moves have their own advantage.

    @spectra - I think that could be interesting to add once the game is closer to being done.

    @Nicholas - You are welcome :)

    @ronak - I will add a shiny Mew as my next pokemon to trade :)

    @??? - The plan is to go up 10 levels by each gym.

    @anon 3:33AM - I do like the idea of having exclusive avatars so I will see what I can do about that in the future.

    @anon 3:49AM - I do want to add auto level up as an option in a future update.

    @anon 3:53AM - Nighttime level would be cool, I think it matches up with the pokemon tower theme :)

    @anon 4:00AM - In this game you can only learn one move per level so I made one move at 47 and one move at 48 for victreebel.

    @Raphael - I don't plan on increasing the shiny rate anytime soon.

    @Zorplax - I like the idea of having a place like a breeding center or a training center so that your pokemon can earn exp while you are away. This is something that could be added in the future.

    @Anon 7:03AM - I looked at the code and Porygon does learn Discharge at 40 when you level him up.

    @anon 8:39AM - I'm planning on raising the level cap by 10 for each gym.

  38. OMG because of the new changes i caný play PTD any more! i loved this game! i need an e-mail adress and a password, i only know the password but not the e-mail adress. :(( what can i do? please help!

  39. Hey sam my jynx (lvl 40) don't relearn mean look
    thats is a problem!!!!!!!!!!(jynx learn mean look at lvl 25)

    ReplyDelete
  40. Understood. And, hey, don't overwork yourselves (Kevin, Dan, and you, Sam). Wouldn't want any of you guys to get sick or worse in an attempt to appease us fans, and I'm pretty sure you guys deserve a break or two, especially after the weekly update spree you have going (though who wouldn't want to keep the ball that is PTD rolling?).

    On a more selfish note, it would give fans like me a chance to get up to speed with everything that you've been adding (my Blue team is still level 44, dang it!) Seriously, though, thanks for the hard work you guys have been putting into PTD/HTD/Ninja-ja.

  41. "Fast Forward button (0%) - After all the request, I will work on getting this out!"
    I thought you said that we'll be able to buy bikes in the future, wich would be used to FastForward a level. So how's it gonna be?

    ReplyDelete
  42. @ Zorplax: Hey, that was my idea in the last blog and this one! *grumble grumble*...Well, at least Sam got to see it, so it should be happening. That would help to take a load off my back as far as training goes, so hooray for Day Care/Breeding/Training/"whatevertheheckSamdecidestocallit" Center!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Can you set up some kind of email alert for the trade centre when someone sends you a request or accepts a request, etc?

    ReplyDelete
  44. I would really like to see a Pokéball upgrade.
    I love the game so far please keep it up.

    I know its a long time off if ever but if you make a PTD 2 will be be possible to trade Pokémon betwwen the 2 games?

  45. Can't wait for this update. Ghastly/Haunter/Gengar are my all time favorite pokemon.

  48. @Sam, you miss Shadow Punch, Haunter and Gengar learn it at level 25

    ==Mighark==

    ReplyDelete
  49. you should make it challenge to beat that level without the move rest or any recover moves... that would make it impossible lol

    ReplyDelete
  50. I like the idea of a fast forward button, but I feel like it's going to be misused. It's good for training, but I think a lot of people will just use it to farm shinies really fast or to farm pokedollars quickly. I don't know if you've thought about this, but you could maybe change the rates of shinies and pokedollars when the button is in use or maybe you just want it to be that way. Just throwing out my two cents worth. Love the game =]

  51. Hey Sam, another random dude telling you what to do with your game.

    This guy in particular has noticed that fire spin doesn't seem to have it's damage and animations timed up very well, since by the time the enemy Pokemon has been damaged the animation has already ended by a few fractions of a second. Now I'd be fine with it ending when the fire finished its circle but as it is right now it looks like it's not doing any damage at all!

    Thanks for reading, and godspeed, you crazy, magnificent bastard.

  52. have you ever considered making the game with another person for more updates and less work for you?

  56. Woo pumped for dragonite! Earlier today i was in the game corner playing the slots and bought a regular dratini and i got lucky and got a shiny :D gonna have a shiny dragonite!

  57. Huzzah, Gastley and the crew! Looking forward to the next update. :)

    I thought of this kinda cool idea for the trading center today: "following" certain users.

    I was kind of thinking of like a quick-link to users you follow or something. Like, you might find a certain user with a bunch of Pokemon you want, so, instead of going through "Search Trade" and typing the person's name over and over again, you could add them to a list and you could go to their profile with a simple click. Or maybe you find a user who makes really reasonable trades so you want to remember them just in case. Or something.

    I don't know what you'd have to do to implement such a feature but iunno it sounds like a cool little thing to have.

    Yeah I don't really know what I'm talking about. Keep up the good work and stuff~! :D

    ReplyDelete
  63. Have we actually gotten the scopes yet?

    @3:28, I beat it and I only used potions, no recover or rest. I did use Giga Drain.

    Also, wow at the amount of people that buy a regular pokemon and get a shiny. Porygon AND Dratini?! Damn!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. Hey, just started playing a few days ago, and I'm hooked!

    I'm finding myself with a huge amount of in-game money sitting there on my screen, so here are some potential ideas to consider for the future:

    More items in the pokemart such as repel, that could for a wave gives all attackers a reduced speed buff, or the pokedoll, that causes the pokemon it's used on to retreat. Incorporate some more items into the game. Keeping on the pokemart theme, perhaps purchasable upgrades for the pokeball and potion after the player has reached certain stages of the game, which increases the health regained, and the percentage of health remaining before a wild pokemon is catch-able respectively.

    Also, a throwaway thought for the far future. Once the game story is complete, and players can play through to the end, it might be a good insentive to replay if the shiny rate increases once story mode is complete. Only by teeny percentage so it's not too easy, but every little helps! Maybe a bonus increase for a complete pokedex? I'm not sure what the encounter rate is now, so maybe an increase of 50% of the current rate, so a completed story and pokedex doubles the chance of a shiny encounter.

    Love the game. Don't ever stop!

    Will Pikachu ever learn volt tackle? And when you are at the level cap and XP cap could you change the bar colour to something else please, such as purple, to easily tell if you are not getting any more XP, this would be a great help.
    Thanks for reading,

  68. Bug alert!

    I have a Shiny Pidgeot that just learned Wing Attack, yet for some reason it's listed as Gust.

    Anyone else have this issue?

  69. Hey Sam, love the game.

    one thing I think is a bug.
    you can't lose at Oak's Lab there will always be two candies the Rattata can't get.


    Soon Dragonite!

  70. Magnus> I believe he did this on purpose, since it's the very first level. Anyway, it's been said quite a few times before.

  71. Sam, you are missing Shadow Punch on your list of moves to add.

    Haunter & Gengar both learn it at Level 25: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Gengar_(Pok%C3%A9mon)

  73. Hey Sam, Great game! After you fix this shiny hack, maybe you should have a shiny pokemon exchange thing. To exchange shiny pokemon for coins or such? this would get them off the market, and make it a little more legit. Idk, just an idea! Good luck on future progress! keep it up!
    Thanks!

  74. I noticed a bug on the Rock Tunnel level. I've unlocked the guy with the Shiny Voltorb, and after I went left to battle the wild Pokemon there, and when it returned me to the entrance, instead of turning back to the cave music, it kept playing the Battle music, until I went right and the picnicker spotted me, which is when the cheery "you've been seen" music started. Does that only happen to me?

  75. hey um the move stone edge is rock blast for onix, then again I might be wrong, but if I'm not I just wanted to be the one who let you know FIRST.

  76. Hey Sam,

    Now that the ghosts are coming with the next update, which heavily rely on moves like nightmare or dreameater, something like a secondary attack, that is performed, if there are no sleeping targets around, would be really nice.

    Such a system could also be used to reapply buffs automatically, or to switch from a debuffing move to a damaging move automatically, if all targets are debuffed already.

    hope you think about it :)

  78. Sam, you said "I will add a shiny Mew as my next pokemon to trade :)", does that mean you have a rading account, if so, what is it?

    ReplyDelete
  79. hey Sam, I found a bug.
    My Shiny Starmie is getting hitted by Synchronoise from my Hypino on Route 8.
    My other pokes don't get hit, only my Shiny Starmie !
    sorry for bad english. I hope I help you.

  80. =)
    someone just traded me a lv 40 shiny primeape for one of my lv 1 shiny onixes (i have 3).

    @sam

    Please can you let me know when you find out about relfect/light screen. i would like to know if it's a useful defense stragegy. I check the blog often any way. Thanks for your quick reply to my last 2 posts.

    ??? (???? in trading center)

  81. Sam, just found two things about the new WASD system,
    1. If you are holding one of the buttons when you switch tabs/windows, when you return, it will stick you to the wall /corner in the direction you were holding. (ie. center of the map, hold left up. Navigate away, it keeps moving towards the upperleft corner, and once it gets there, you're stuck), stopping you from navigating away from it. This is easily fixed by clicking on your pokemon sprite or box, or the menu button.
    2. When moving pokemon around the map, the WASD funcion doesn't work. Something you might wanna look in to.
    These two things aren't problems, just something I wanted to bring your attenetion to. The WASD system is still great though.

  82. YES! FINALLY HAUNTER!!!!

  83. hey sam,
    just wondering if your able to put on the main menu, when choosing your file to play, how many pokemon you have from the pokedex, rather than how many pokemon you have in your party?
    as in 95/150(151)

    thanks

    ReplyDelete
  84. Hey Sam I had an idea,

    Do you think you could find a way to put a game completion thing on the game? Like however many pokemon you have, how many levels you have beaten, how many shinies you have, and the accomplishments you've finished all add up to the percentage of game completion

    ReplyDelete
  85. 10 levels on three updates? hope that's just because of Dragonite (when will Crowbat come???), otherwise it'll be hard to catch up ;)

  86. @Sam

    I have not played the LAST level but I can buy the rare daily code . Is that a bug?? or an error??


    ==xXchileananonymusXx==


    Ps: AMAZING GAME SAAAAAAM
    PsPs: will you add another archivement???

  87. @RO - You serious? You don't know WHO Kimmy Lube is? AND SHE'S A FRICKIN' PERSON! Without her you wouldn't have all these avatars in the game right now.

    ReplyDelete
  88. @sam,
    when fire punch is added to the game, will the daily code abra have fire punch as intended?

    ReplyDelete
  89. I dont know if this has been brought up but I was hoping you would consider the way moves with recoil damage work. As it stands they do way too much damage to the pokemon using them. In PTD pokemon use moves at a much higher rate than in the original games, so the damage received does not carry over proportionally. Addition of the super potions is nice but frankly I think it would be better if the recoil damage would be significantly reduced so that the towers can use these moves more than just a couple of times.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Sam,

    Just tried the Baton Pass/Aqua Ring combo and it doesn't work. Aqua Ring should pass along to the remaining party.

    Thanks!

  93. @anon 7:27PM - Interesting idea about moves like dream eater and nightmare. I will keep it in mind for a future update.

    @anon 9:00PM - My trading account is samO

    @Romulo - Synchronoise only hits psychic types.

    @ardi1230 - I will work on making the keyboard controls work in different circumstances in a future update.

    @dasman16 - I will look into adding something like that in the future.

    @Derek - Yes I can add some completion details in the future.

    @Emeric - The plan is to raise the cap by ten for each gym, but it doesn't mean you have to be at the level cap to beat them.

    @xxchele - I always forget to change this. Thanks.

    @anon 3:55PM - No, I don't think so.

    @anon 5:19PM - I will be looking at recoil and healing done with attacks in a future update.

    @Ern - A lot of people have requested Aqua Ring to work on Baton Pass, I will add this in the future. Also changing out the buffs work in a future update.

    @anon 5:32PM - Will a skip to next wave button in the future.

    @anon 5:53PM - Those two (Game (0%) and Pokemon Center(0%) refer to new security fixes for the game and the pokemon center.

  95. Hey Sam, it's DragonTamerChris/Professor Smeargle over here.

    I want to know what you think of this idea: http://sdcentral.co.uk/topic/9135828/1/#new

    This shouldn't be that hard to implant in the game, and I think it'd be better if moves like nasty plot raised your special attack by X1.6 and moves like Swords Dance raised your attack by X1.6. (Btw, why does Swords dance raise your attack AND special attack in this game?

  96. Great game Sam next update looks good

  97. Hey Sam,

    I REALLY like the new updates, but I have something I want to tell you
    1. Double Slap glitches if the slapper is killed while slapping
    2. It would be REALLY cool if you could go to a place where you could catch released pokemon
    3. All the black is kinda depressing
    4. A pause button would be cool, you could pause AND rearrange your pokemon AND catch guys, but not attack
    5. Can you be in more levels?
    6. I think it would be cool if you could trade for a shiny after you beat the Game Corner

    Thanks

  100. Noticed another glitch- When a pokemon uses dragon tail, the target turns around before being hit.

  101. u need to make a lvl cap for what u can use in challange lvls 5 and 6 because they aren't challanges if u can use lvl 50 pokemon on them

  102. Do you make the $20 Ninja-Ja give 75 so you can ALMOST get all the legendaries on purpose?

  103. Hey SAM

    Love the game, anyways I just read one the anon's suggestion about the nighttime level, would you really give it a try? that would be awesome!!

    ReplyDelete
  104. Hey Sam! What about adding backgrounds in for the black thing? Like we choose a color or we can upload a picture!

    ReplyDelete
  105. yo can the next training level have multiple roads? so leveling up pokes are faster. also when looking at my pokemon can their stats appear so i know who has best offense, defense, etc... that why you can arrange in storage too. thanks

  106. hey sam when your working on updates are you pulling all nighters? if not how long do you usually stay up?

  110. GOOD WORK!!
    Only a little portion of the update is left and I am sure u will be able to accommodate all the things in this update.

  111. ignonered -.-' lol guess no ghost marowak comming then =S

    ReplyDelete
  112. Sam, please let this post.

    I have a suggestion.

    Why don't you make the 'level up' like in the games? I mean... to avoid having to click 'level up' all the time.

    Something like an automatic level up. That would be useful to train low level pokemons quickly.

    ReplyDelete
  113. PLEASE add a zoom out button sam. It is drastically needed.

    ReplyDelete
  114. An idea, just make is so you take on waves and proceed up the stairs, and PLEASE make cubone very rare seeing as this may be the only place you can find one, so please make cubone RARE, and i also want to see an epic bossbattle versus marowak at the top. And here's the idea. Can you make it like only 3 spots on the marowak battle. One of them can be a hole in ground which is a flying type only spot, the 2nd one can be on a tombstone, being a ghost-type only spot and the third can be a neutral one. please, that would add that fun challenge of being limited to a little underpowered types, plus actully giving an advantage to training upp a gastly before the boss. THANKS

  116. will the fast forward button make my pokemon's attack faster too? or just the wave?

  117. @anon 8:07PM - They will attack faster.

  118. Any idea what day the update is going to be? Saturday or Sunday? Dont mean to sound impatient, just soooooo excited!!!

    ReplyDelete
  119. Sam can you please bring the legendaries back to mystery gift and when are you taking ptd to the Android market for free?

    ReplyDelete
  120. oh no. my pokemon are having trouble leveling up.(taking about an hour to level up from 50 to 51 no shiny.) Sam, i think you should have a permanent 25-50% exp boost cuz i get angry after 1-2 hours of boredom and to know they still didn't level up. but not 200% like the previous time(was it 3.3 or 3.4?) less is fine, but some type of exp boost!!! please! I'm desperate!!! i don't know how to level up fast without the hacked version!(still resisting the urge)

    and @WolfieXP 2:17 cubones are found at least 9-10%(ignoring pokemon yellow stats, which are 5%) in the kanto pokemon games, so rare enough for you?

    ReplyDelete
  121. Hey Sam, have you ever thought about implementing a hunting system? like at the top of the screen have 6 slots for pokemon you're hunting for, and when they come on screen they flash red. Its only bare bones of an idea, but if you actually implement it, that would be awesome :D

    ReplyDelete
  122. Sam , when we will be able to change the password that we are currently using to log in to the game? The reason for asking that is because there are many stories of security breaches and accounts that got hacked. I believe that this is a very serious issue and you need to do something immediately..:/ One of the major problem that i see is that since a person knows another person's email account then it's quite easy to try different password combinations and log in to his system. Unfortunately, long time ago you gave a tip about what most people will likely use as a password(i'm not going to say it here again) and without giving an option to change these passwords these people may be extremely vulnerable to hacking.
    Thanks for listening to me Sam

  124. when reach level 55, dragonair evolve to dragonite.. i think.. ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  125. Have you thought about implimenting a system where you can create multiple teams of 6 pokemon then save them so you don't have to create them again... i know that when your pokemon list starts to get in the triple digits it starts to get difficult finding the ones you want... so that's why i'm asking.

  128. hey sam, did you purposely give seismic toss an attack power of 80 instead of its attack being based on the pokemons level?

  129. Sam, i think you shouldn't raise the level cap anymore because i still have a lot of pokemons to train.

    ReplyDelete
  130. i hav super potions and not regular potions how come?

    ReplyDelete
  131. Sam, if you go to the pokedex collection you will see that it doesn't say witch Nidoran (boy or girl) it is. Now this is very minor, but I just thought you should know. I love the game and do not care about silly things like that, but still, it is kind of annoying for when I am trying to complete my pokedex and I'm not sure which one I need to catch/evolve.

  132. i got 50k casino coins and get mi shinny dratini i will have my own shinni dragonite just in time to the upgrade and sorry i get it at this moment i will have to level it up in a day
