Pokemon Tower Defense: Weekly Progress and v4.6.1 official release

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!


I'm aware of the people losing their pokemon.

To help resolve this issue I have added Battle Ready Non-Shiny Pokemon to the adoption center that are free of charge for this week ONLY. I will not be able to return any shiny pokemon. I will only be able to refund SnD coins to those who bought them and lost their pokemon.

Also I'm aware of new profiles not being able to save or press many buttons like the back button I will fix this on v4.6.2. Coming out shortly.

v4.6.2 is now out and fixes the saving issue with new profiles.

Thanks,
Sam

Where can I play?
Are you ready for another week of Sam and Dan Games?! Well I am! We haven't had much content here lately for PTD mainly due to building the avatar chat from scratch. But now that that's done I'm ready to ramp it up again on the single player for PTD. But before I get into that, the great members of our forum have provided me with the top 10 questions of the week.

Weekly Questions from the Forums!

1. Samzy: What do you think attracts players to PTD so much? And have you ever looked at PTD and thought, I made this popular creation, well done me :-) ?
Sam: It's not easy to see the game as a player but my opinion is that there are a lot of low quality fan made pokemon games out there. So when a player starts playing this game they might think it's just another bad fan game but when they see that it's fun and doesn't just slap pokemon in they really appreciate it. I am proud of this game and how far it has come :).


2. Mastersnowy: In HTD, will you be adding PTD benefits for beating levels? Or the other way around?
Sam: Yeah, this is something that Dan and I want to do eventually. Both ways.

3. Crazymerio: How do you decide which game suggestions to add, when you add new suggestion from the suggestions tab or from somewhere else?

Sam: This is a good question since there is really no right or wrong way of doing this. I basically look at a lot of variables. For example if we haven't had a new pokemon to catch in a while, when was the last time the level cap went up, what location do we have to visit next, is there major bugs that need to be fixed, is there a hack going around. After all of those are fufilled then I look the list of things I have in my head and the list on the site and which you guys have been asking for and I try to do those.

4. PikachuEevee: Where do you know Dan from?

Sam: We both worked at this warehouse, thats how we first meet.

5. King Slaughter House: Are you as motivated right now as you were when you first developed this game? And if not, what could get your gears grinding again ;-) ?

Sam: Yes and no, I'm still very excited about adding more to the game but when you are starting a new project the motivation is at the highest level. I think just the support of everybody and people playing the game week after week gets my gears grinding.

6. 1superheld: Do you think you will add a style (CSS) to the tradecenter?

Sam: Yes, a fan (Nssvelocity) made a layout a while ago that I want to implement soon.

7. NinjaGod: So, avatar chat is basically useless when someone is spamming... Can we get a kick for flooders and a ban for repeat-offenders?

Sam: Yes, I agree, more features will be added in v4.7.

8. Ume: Are you gonna add a halloween special event/level/story?
Sam: Yes, v4.7 will have some goodies :D

9.Link: How many people BOUGHT ninja-ja... and how many downloaded it after it became free. I'd like to see that comparison.
Sam: We don't actually keep track of how many people downloaded the free version but a little over 3,000 have submitted high scores. Less than 2,000 people have bought it since it came out. I think the big issue is that you have to download Ninja-ja, we have to put a version here on the blog that you can play right on the site.

10. MMaester: Roughly how many games have you already made before PTD? On Newgrounds there are 2 others available (Cannon Challenge and eTheatre), but are there more, and are they playable somewhere?
Sam: I've started tons of games before those two but never finished any of them.


If you want your question to show up on next week's blog go to our forum now (look at the fan links tab up top) and submit your question.

Okay just a quick thing with people getting scammed in the Trading Center. NEVER give anybody the url of any of your trades, only give them the trade ID. If you do accidentally do it log into your game and save. This will make the link not work anymore. I will be patching it up this week so that the url no longer contains sensitive information.

Okay so this week we have it all!

New Story Level - Poke Tower 2 (100%) - What awaits us at the next level of the tower!?
  • Level Intro (100%)
  • Level Layout (100%)
  • Level Waves (100%)
  • Level Ending (100%)
New Pokemon to capture (100%) - It's a surprise!

  • Shiny Graphic (100%)
  • New Moves (5) (100%)

  • Implement for Game Corner (100%)
  • Implement on Change Avatar (100%)
Implementing Accuracy and Evasion properly (100%) - Meaning attacks that lower or raise accuracy/evasion will affect the chances of hitting the target. This will work with your attacks and the enemy's.
Add a new effect similar to Black and White when an ability is triggered (100%)
Adding more abilities for other pokemon (100%)
  • Keen Eye (100%) - For Pidgey, Pidgeotto, Pidgeot, Spearow, Fearow, Farfetch'd
    • Prevents other pokemon from lowering the accuracy of this pokemon. 
    Changing the way saving works to prevent pokemon from being lost due to server errors (100%)
    Fixed a duplication exploit (100%) 
    Fixed an issue that was preventing the lowering of special attack debuff from working (100%) 
    The Lower (Special) Attack Debuff will now last 1800 (100%) 
    Attacks that lower the target's (special) attack will no longer make them drop the candy. Only attacks that lower accuracy will make them drop the candy. This results in a shorter cooldown for these attacks (100%) 
    Adding more features to the chat to prevent spamming (Postponed)
    Adding a new layout to the trading center (Postponed) - Thanks Nssvelocity!
    Going back and making the game less grindy for new players (Postponed) - This might not make it to this update. The newest level will always be top end and require a high level team.
    Allow players to change their email and/or password in the pokemon center (Postponed) - You will have to supply your own email and password in order to change them to prevent hackers from changing it.
    Change the way getting shiny pokemon in the wild works to prevent hacking of shiny pokemon (Postponed) - It is no longer possible to get shiny pokemon in the wild. A new way of hunting for them will be adding in the near future.

    That's what we have so far, as always let me know what you think, and keep coming back during the week to see how my progress on the update is going. As I work/finish parts I will update the blog.

    Have a good week and Hero Tower Defense Tuesday is tomorrow so look forward to that!

    8. Sam I cannot log into the game on one of my accounts. I have tried on other accounts and they log in instantly, but when I go onto my main account I get an error message saying that the server has sent a faulty response. Is there anything I can do to fix this?

      ReplyDelete
    9. Um, I still can't get into the PTD Avatar Chat... >.<;; I'm still getting the error message...

      ReplyDelete
    10. @The Black Mask - I would say to just keep working on it even if it's little by little.

      @Duripen - Make sure you are playing v4.6.1

      ReplyDelete
    11. @ShinyCoqui - It's possible you are putting the wrong email and password.

      ReplyDelete
    12. Sam

      Now that you added abilities don't you think it would be a good idea to show the summary of each pokemon with stats and abilities because the more abilities you add the harder it will be for players to keep track of them all. And how do you plan to implement pokemon that have two different abilities?

      Anon

      ReplyDelete
    13. Sam i think you should add a feature for the mystery gift maybe the 0.0125% of the Pokemon being shiny? or even a smaller percent since you can get it as many times as you want. Just an idea.

      Collin

      ReplyDelete
    14. Hey sam, awesome game as always. Instead of going back and changing the levels for less grinding why not just increase the exp you gain. Not by much to be sure but enough so that grinding will be that much easier. .2-3% would be enough in my book.

      ReplyDelete
    15. Sam, we haven't had a level that gets progressively harder (like Route 5) in a while. Why not make Pokemon Tower 2 harder than Pokemon Tower 1 to give it an allusion of getting progressively harder?

      Speaking of progressive, why not add a Progressive Jackpot to the Game Corner?

      As for the new Pokemon to capture, I think we're all going to be disappointed with Sam for once.

      I bet that the "new" Pokemon to catch is Haunter.

      ReplyDelete
    16. Thanks Sam. Good luck with the game and HTD.

    17. So Sam, REALLY STUPID QUESTION. How are we going to catch legendaries and fight the Elite Four? And, just wondering, have you ever thought of making YOURSELF the Champion?

    18. when will a new level be avalible?

    19. can we be seeing goldeen in the pokemon adoption anytime tonight or tomorrow?

      ReplyDelete
    20. I like this questions of the week thing Sam. Coming update looks cool, excited to see what will be different about the second level of Pokemon Tower. On a side note, when you first changed the pokemon sorting system to switching out Pokemon most people liked it, but I and a few others still preferred the old system (I don't mind the Pokemon order being to the right though). You said a few weeks ago that you would see what you could do to perhaps add an option for moving Pokemon around to push the Pokemon underneath to the right again but this was never talked about again. I have my own sorting system that I like using and with the current switching out method it would take a very long time to resort my Pokemon and I don't like the sort by Pokemon # button because it creates a big jumble. If you have time could you please add this under the options menu? I really enjoy this game but would very much like this feature. Thanks for the great game
      Sincerely,
      Crazymerio.

    21. i was thinkin if you could eevee in the game corner, and make it like 200,000 coins for shiny, just cause its expensive to adopt 3 shiny eevees for there evolutions and i was sure i saw that someone said you could get them from the game corner

    22. LOL, in the first battles with the Elite Four in Red/Blue/Green and FireRed/LeafGreen, didn't their teams have levels of around 50-60? Now we're already going over Level 60, and we've only just defeated Erika?

      ReplyDelete
    23. thanks for putting goldy in the pokemon adoption so quickly

    24. Sam - My game just got all SCREWED UP. I lost all of my pokemon (I had mostly shinies) all my progress, and only one of them got restart! Can you make a game that has every single NORMAL pokemon at level 60, and and all shinies except the game corner ones, drowzee, hypno, goldeen, seaking, krabby, kingler, cubone, marowak, and mew. The username is ShinyRayquaza, and i'll send you the username and password. If you do this I will be the happiest person alive and will forever be in your debt. PLEASE! I REALLY DON'T WANT TO HUNT ALL THE SHINIES AND LEVEL UP ALL THE POKEMON ALL OVER AGAIN! I MIGHT NOT EVEN PLAY ANYMORE! PLEASE! HELP ME SAM, YOUR MY ONLY HOPE


      Sadly,
      ShinyRayquaza

    26. complementing anonimous question, will we have a fight against you? i mean, we had 1 but you said your pokemon were with low defense.
      I would like a really hard battle agains OMFG strong shiny and legendary pokemons.
      Then you call shiny Missigno, and the game cuts LOL

      ReplyDelete
    27. Sam,

      Can you PLEASE fix the legendary dogs moves, they don't learn their moves like any normal pokemon, and they don't have ANY moves that they should have in their relearn list either!!!

      ReplyDelete
    28. Hey Sam looks like another fun update. For the making the game less grindy part, I think you should implement the leveling/exp gaining system in pokemon black and white where your pokemon gains more for beating a higher level guy and less for beating lower ones. With this you can reduce the amount of exp needed per level up and it allows us to train our weaker guys more easily to progress faster. Just a thought :)

    29. i found a bug:

      when you play a level in which you have to pass the enemy pokemon, the Speed up button doesn't work

      ReplyDelete
    30. ok, my bet for new pokemon is either kangaskhan or ditto. or sam could do something really crazy and give us missingno...

      ReplyDelete
    31. will we ever be able to obtain legendary pokemon like the bird trio

      ReplyDelete
    32. Sam there is ppl in avatar chat acting like they are you. So you should do something about it. Or ppl will get scammed. Like he was saying "lets test trade, if u help me ill give a extre legendary " and shit like that

      ReplyDelete
    33. will their ever be pokemon eggs like in the actual game ?

      ReplyDelete
    34. Sam, you should really change how the confusion status affects the user's Pokemon. Confuse Ray causes self-inflicted damaged like a ghost type move that is based on the strength of the user. Confusion shouldn't be dependent on level or type.

      ReplyDelete
    35. I think the avatar chat isn't that good, just a screen for walking around. My opinion only, don't get offended, Sam.

      ReplyDelete
    36. @anon 7:31PM - None taken, it's not meant to be amazing or anything but just a way for me to get some experience for multiplayer programming.

      ReplyDelete
    37. 95% sure the new pokemon is snorlax. no evolution.. .and 6 new moves. snorlax has 6 moves that aren't already programmed into the game. they are...yawn, block, heavy slam, giga impact, snore, and sleep talk.

      ReplyDelete
    38. im surprised no-one has mentioned this before, but the blue squares at the bottom aren't aligned right.

      ReplyDelete
    39. I think this chapter shouldn't end with a gym battle. We're halfway through the gym battles, so why not take a break from them and focus on the Pokemon Tower Top (or whatever you'll call it) as the boss fight. And slow down with the levels. At this rate We'll reach 100 right at the final gym, or before. And I don't think we should face the elite four either... I think we should enter the tournament that Ash always enters. You beat Ash and Gary there, and just as you are crowned winner Mewthree appears and starts attacking everyone. I know that is messing with the story a little, sorry about that.

      ReplyDelete
    40. Who's that Pokemon? Don't ask me because I haven't a clue!

      Seriously, what could it be? You've already introduced the Cubone and the Ghastly families to us. Last I checked, those were the only possible Pokemon to catch in the tower?

      Hm...considering that it doesn't have any evolutions, that Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan, Lickitung, Chansey, Tangela, Kangaskhan, Electabuzz, Magmar, Tauros, Lapras, Ditto, Aerodactyl, Snorlax, or any of the bird trio. We could probably throw out a few like Snorlax, but...now I really want to know. Bah.

      Will you eventually be listing what abilities each Pokemon has? Although we do know what abilities the starters have, it could get problematic for Pokemon like Golem who have several abilities. I'd really hate to use Double-Edge with a Golem and questioning why I'm taking such massive damage, only to find out it doesn't have Rock Head.

      New level coming up, more training to do, a new Pokemon, more Avatar-related goodness, abilities, and some Pokemon Center additions. All of this while at college! How do you manage?

    42. after collecting all badges can you add yourself ash and garry and you three can be like a test for us and when we beat you three we can advance into the pokemon leaug

      p.s. is "surprise" supposed be a hint/clue?

    45. why dont you answer emails quick its because some people have actual problems in the game and need help like me i had all my pokemon stollen i sent you an email but you did not respond i hope i did not offend you i know you have lots of things to do so why dont you have someone in charge of your email sorry if i offended you or sounded bossy

      ReplyDelete
    46. Hi Sam, I have a couple questions. How many of the Poke Tower Levels will there be? And what else is going to be for multiplayer? Also, can there be an option to change the e-mail? I messed up for mine so I need to fix it without starting a new game. Thank you for this radical game.

      ReplyDelete
    47. I know it's snorlax, look at the link it has 6 moves you haven't implemented already http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Snorlax
      Block,Heavy Slam,Giga Impact,Sleep Talk,Snore, and Yawn.

    50. Hey Sam I know this is a long shot but do you think you could implement Ghost into the game, I mean I know we got the silph scopes and everything but it would make for an awesome boss at the top of the tower or something.

    51. instead of the ban option just put an ignore option on the avatar chat

    52. Hey Sam, this isn't a huge deal, but could you change it so that when Pokemon faint they aren't sent back to the PC? It can be a pain to find them all again, and it doesn't make sense for them to go back to the PC. Plus, if we ever have ways of reviving them, they'll need to stay in our party.

    53. Hey Sam I'm really gana like this update, a new lv, a new pokemon(I want 2 say Snorlax just cause :D)no evolution 4 it?!?...points more an more towards it :D)nice Halloween week can't w8 2 c what else u hav in stored.

      ReplyDelete
    54. level cap to 62? My pokemon are still at there 55's

      ReplyDelete
    55. Well if sam is releasing pokes by the story then safari pokes are out(tauros,kanghaskhan, etc) and ditto and snorlax are later too. Lapras im guessin would be in seafoam islands. So tha leaves off chansey. I think most people forgot about chansey.

      Do i get a prize sam if u guessed it right?

      If so send it to my acc Mr. Rager ;)

      ReplyDelete
    56. SAM.. will you do something about the pokemons types??? most of them are wrong... and also i would suggest the pokemon stats wha u think?

      ReplyDelete
    57. The story strongly suggests it is Snorlax, because at the top of the tower you find Fuji, who gives you pokeflute, which is to wake up snorlax and catch it.. Also the 6 moves thing..

      ReplyDelete
    58. Ok, this is a great game, I love it, but...

      I've been hit with a crippling glitch. For some reason, whether I play it online or as a download, PTD will not save for me at all. I also cannot use about 50% of the buttons, mainly "Back" buttons and the only "Save" button.

      The only thing I could think of is that I accidentally opened up the PTD Pokemon Center while playing, but the warning only says that I might lose my save, not that all this would happen.

      Am I just screwed, or is there something that can be done to fix this?

      ReplyDelete
    59. ...Wasn't the level cap not going to increase until chapter 6?

      ReplyDelete
    60. dear sam,
      would it be able for you and dan to get your names highlighted in the avatar chat because it is really hard to know if you are really you or just someone pretending.

    64. Hey Sam, love the game, been playing since the level cap was around 10, just got a question and suggestion.
      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,
      Nic

    65. so I got myself a Goldeen and leveled him to 47 and learnt Horn Drill. Tested out the theory that "Horn Drill only hits a pokemon which is lower level than himself" Kyogre dead before touching the candy, so therefore, Kyogre at or above level 47 would have SO much health. Can't wait to test out Horn Drill on harder pokemons!!

      pretty excited on more levels, can't wait to take on Sabrina and get me a Hitmonlee!!

    66. SAM QUESTION very quick since through the generation there are evolutions like electrabuzz to electravier does that mean we are only to get electrabuzz or do we get elekid to electrabuzz to electravier?

      you could be right. no evolution
      but chansey has 7 new moves

      ReplyDelete
    73. @anoon 11:53
      Don't forget that Chansey is a Safari zone pokemon too!

      My guess for the new poke is Snorlax, he is the closest according to the actual games. If we end up getting the Poke flute, then going back to the Celadon in chapter 4, we could end up getting Snorlax there. It would also end up having its 6 moves that currently are not added, as well as not having to have more than one new level.

      ReplyDelete
    74. @Sam:
      I've mentioned this twice before, but haven't got any answer yet. Hypno's move "synchronoise" doesn't take any damage. Well, maybe it's not Hypno, but shiny Hypno, or at least MY shiny Hypno. But it's really annoying that you havenät done anything yet.

      And I wanted to thank you for making training so much easier! But a new training-level might be good...

    77. I started a new account and I cannot save the game and on the out of battle pokemon select screen the back button is inoperative therefore effectively crashing the game for me. Another user found the same problem with a new account as well (found topic on forum) so I believe this affects new games w/out a save game already in place. Hopefully you can fix this quick because it makes the game unplayable.

      P.S. Windows 7 64 Chrome browser

    78. Hi Sam!

      I found a bug in current version (4.6.1). I have a profile where I am playing Blue version on slot 1 and Red version on slot 2. I decided to start a new game on the third slot and when I can clear Oak's lab level, but when I wanted to play second level, I selected the Check Pokémon screen and I am not able to get the Back button work. In this screen I can select different attacks, level up my pokemon and even select the release button, but I can't get back :( I also tried on the home screen pressing all buttons and all of them work but Trading, Save and also Back won't work. I am still able to get into Pokédex, but Back button won't work too. I tested this in swf and apk versions. Thank you Sam, keep up the good work!

    79. Two weeks in a row without new story levels? I don't like it. The game is already a super grind, but all we have to do is hunt shinies or grind low level pokemon. I know it's a lot of work and i respect what you do, but placating people with Avatar Chat isn't the way to go. Challenge level if no story release, or add achievements to keep the game from becoming stale. As it is now, you've released a new pokemon, a chat that is nothing more than novelty, and 3 of the more useless abilities in Pokemon. You said you're trying to get experience as a game designer, i believe? Part of that is learning how to keep interest generated in your game and not rely on novelty to keep people interested. Making the game less grindy for new players is a WONDERFUL start, and should be a higher priority. Adding challenge and story levels should be the next priority to keep people in the "end game" playing your game. I intend to use the avatar chat once to check it out... and that's it. Your work thus far is very, very good. But don't get caught up in novelty or you'll lose a large percentage of your active player base. For example, i've barely played the game for the last 2 weeks. Avatars don't appeal to me in the least. When the storyline eventually ends, that's the time to release things such as the avatar chat. I hope you find this amidst the fanboy messages, because this is the ONLY constructive feedback in all of these comments.

Hey Sam, i've been playing on version 3.1 and then i stopped playing for like a month or more cause i had to focus on my studies..now i wanted to start playing again and i downloaded the latest version 4.6.1 and i can't play...says Error - email and password do not match..i went to lost password and received it as well, i tried to log in but it still said error - pass and email don't match..what should i do???oh yeh, i got the account from a guy on some giveaway page..maybe he did something to it since i can't change my password or have u developed that yet?

    81. I'm aware of the people losing their pokemon, I'm working on a solution to get your profile back, don't post a comment on the blog about it just email me "lost my pokemon" as the subject with your account email somewhere in there, don't send me the password.

      Also I'm aware of new profiles not being able to save or press many buttons like the back button I will fix this on v4.7.

    82. Lapras is a slight possibility since it's in the Silph Building (not the Seafoam Islands as someone said).

      However, I think that the time of year is a clue to the new catchable Pokemon.

      Think about what Pokemon that don't evolve are connected to Halloween in any way, shape or form.

      Ditto is a good idea, but if you think about this closely (and know what Halloween means here in Detroit: ARSON), the answer is one of the following: Ditto, Jirachi (key word: surprise), Lunatone (associated with the Full Moon, which is associated with Halloween), Heatran (the Devil's Night connection), Zapdos (If you saw the shadow of Zapdos, you'd swear that was one scary-looking bird), Murkrow (Two reasons: Crows are associated with Autumn and the Dusk Stone isn't in the game yet) or Snorlax.

      you are totally wrong. FIRST SERIES ONLY! BEFORE IT ALL BECAME CRAPPY

      jirachi? lunatune? heatran? murkrow? who are those?

      it will be ditto or lapras.

    87. Really great work! I didn't expect that you really finish this because i thought you'd stop somewhere at lvl 30 but now... WOW! Very great and I guess it's a huge mountain of datas and not many bugs in contrary to the datas! Also I wanted to add (I don't know if it has always been like that, but) if you send a pokémon in fight versus tower, for example the nugget bridge, you aren't able to lvl it up while using it. Go on like this!

    90. Hi Sam. I actually thought of this when I saw you were going to do the 'Pokedex remembering what you had even if you traded your pokemon' thing, but I didn't post it.

      I bet that the reason why people are losing their Pokemon are because of this. I was going to post, saying 'Sam, please don't do the Pokedex remember thing because I fear it may cause a major bug', but I didn't. That's a shame. But anyway, even if I posted, it would of made no difference.

      So... yeah. I'm psychic? Lol joking. Anyway, hope you find a solution to this bug.

    97. Sam!

      its been awhile since i came here. anyway, i think its time to make a small exp boost PERMANENTLY. what i mean is that once you hit about lv 50, non shiny take about an hour to level up. with speed x4, it only takes 45 min. so i think it is time to have an exp boost. but there should be a certain requirement, like have route 8 beaten or something.

      if this comment doesn't show up Sam, i hope you read this at least.

    101. and Sam,

      There must be a way to get more SnD coins, not just ninja-ja and twitter*. I made a mistake buying only the 'Grandmaster Edition'. I realize with mews, I could actually get pokemon I really want. And the dogs come in mind, too. My plans are:

      Daily Codes: 0.0001% of getting coins(all will always be that percent, but amount will increase per rarity)

      Yearly Deposit: Similar to the poke-hack hunting**, you can add 5-10 SnD coins to all profiles(You can do that, right?)

      Please read this comment, Sam. And please respond. Thank you.

      *: I don't have a twitter and I don't want one.

    108. @ anon 6:59 PM: Where are you training, and how many Pokemon are you training at a time?

      Personally, even though Poke Tower 1 probably offers more experience, I find Route 8 to be the best spot. No pressure of attacking Pokemon or candy theft found there. I also generally train two Pokemon up to the level cap at one time. I'd place them at the entrance of Route 8. I'd have four other Pokemon who have hit the level cap at the exit to intercept any Pokemon who sneak by.

    111. Hey Sam,

      Sorry if you're already aware of this issue. I started a new profile, and the saving issue is fixed, but when I play Route 2, as soon as the Pokemon start to appear the game resets to the title screen. Also, in the challenge mode, the Pokemon in Vermillion Gym stop appearing after the 4th wave.

      ReplyDelete
    112. Sam,

      If you are not having saving issues, is it necessary to play v4.6.2 on the blog? or is the v4.6.1 .exe still ok to play?

    115. Hey Sam, me and my friend have some suggestions about PTD you might like and consider adding them in the future..

      1.) A new story level..A level to exp on or something and on the end you have to use teleport with shiny alakazam and you get teleported to a room full of shiny pokes that you can't catch but they are very strong, and in the end, the last wave there is a shiny snorlax that you can catch and use in the challanage level i'm going to write down..

      2.) Challange level.. ------------------------------------------------------------------------
      o o | o o
      |
      |
      o o | o o
      ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
      ^^
      ||
      on those 4 spots are your enemy's pokemon and the wall in the middle
      is made of pokemon food and you have to send your snorlax to break the wall and while he is eating you have to send ur other pokes to protect snorlax by making other pokes hit them instead of snorlax as long as they can..and when snorlax breaks through (eats through) the right side is full of rare candies and you have to use your current pokes as towers to protect rare candy from the upcoming pokes that get stronger as much as they take the rare candy( if they take like 5 candies, all the pokes will be 5 level stonger)..and after the challange is successfully done you can buy master balls in the shop for the price of 1 million pokedollars

      3.the MakeMeShiny stone you can buy in shop and it costs insanely high( like 2-5 million) but you can only buy it if you have more than 5 shinies or pass all the levels( u decide)..

      4.an annoying sound alarm when shiny or dog comes up, or just make that our screen becomes red and normal red and normal..like that red alarms..

      5. make so we can buy some kind of thing that makes us attract shinies( find them more easily) in the wild:
      now is a 1/8000 shiny, right?
      1. 1/7000 is a shiny - 500 000 pokedollars
      2. 1/5000 is a shiny - 2 000 000 pokedollars
      3. 1/3500 is a shiny - 7 500 000 pokedollars

      I hope you liked our suggestions..please reply, bye!

    119. @TipMaster

      Its pointless to pay anything pokedollars because of the hacked version. Also the game pauses when dogs appear so having that alarm is annoying. Also having 5 shinies in the game isnt that hard

      ReplyDelete
    120. oh, ok then..i didn't know that it pauses..probably cause i never found a dog..anyway, maybe something harder then?

      ReplyDelete
    121. the new pokemon is either hitmonlee or snorlax... both pokemon have 5 moves that aren't in the game. snorlax has yawn, sleep talk, heavy slam, giga impact, and block. and hitmonlee with rolling kick, mega kick, jump kick, blaze kick, and hi jump kick. it's not chansey as some have thought.. chansey has too many moves that aren't programmed into the game already that involve held items like fling and bestow.

      my bet is on hitmonlee since it's sprite was already in the game in the rocket hideout level.

      ReplyDelete
    122. Hey Sam,

      Have you thought about adding an "About the Game" button on the main screen. So you can put stuff in there like, only 1st generation pokemon will be available in this game, and other questions that continuously come up. It just seems so repetitive people asking questions over and over and over. Ya know? Just a thought. Love the game.

      ReplyDelete
    123. Can you add a selct all and check marks to do more than one pokemon at a time for the trading center because when you want to do more than 1 pokemon it takes forever.

      ReplyDelete
    124. I don't think its Hitmonlee, because Hitmonchan would also come out.

      ReplyDelete
    125. @TipMaster

      you can't change the shiny rate, its a game mechanic Sam designed.

      anyway, i think you should add a more specific filter when searching for pokemon in the pokemon center. such as...

      Level (<, >, <=, >=, = )
      and Requirements

      and for the "Search for what other players want"

      Level (<, >, <=, >=, = )
      Specific Requirement (only bulbasaur, mew and entei, etc)

      because i get angry when i see a good pokemon i want, and i see like, a bunch of other pokemon i don't have.

      Scenario: hmm, i wonder what i can get with my arbok... AH-HA! a shiny vulpix! lets see... wait,*says trade requirement is mew, dogs and shiny goldeen+arbok* HEY! that was a trick!
      end scene! thank you, thank you.

      whatever, i hate it when that happens. so i request more specific trade filter. plz post and read. thank you.

      PLEASE stop making lv caps increases! my pokes are taking awhile to level up! and we need another one of those exp boosts! this is literally killing me! waiting 3 hours (an hour a day) for one of my SHINIES to level up to 60!

      and i'm anxious for the new mystery gift pokes. choices are kangahskan, chansey, hitmonlee, hitmonchan(maybe...)and lapras. seriously. plz hint? can't wait 3 days for update!

      ReplyDelete
    136. Hello Sam, I know that you don't read all the comments on your blog but I hope you'll read this.
      First, I think you should create 4 different speed buttons: like this, there will never have a problem with the game speed.

      Secondly, you should create a check box, to disable or not trades without request.

      Thirdly, you should create a delay before reposting a message on the avatar chat to avoid the spammers.

      Fourth, when you clic on a pokemon in the game, the english name of the pokemon is displayed on the status, but as I am French, I've recalled all my pokemons with the French names... All that to say that you should display the nickname of the pokemon on the status.

      Fifth, Psychoc, Fire Blast, Solar Beam and all the attacks that hit many pokemons at once attack only one pokemon on speed x2, x3 and x4.

      Sixth,I think you should increase the probability of finding a dog with the daily code, because with this actual probability, even if you play everyday, buying the Rare Daily Code 100,000 with 3 different accounts, during 4 years you will never have them... I think you shoud increase at 0,1% the probability of finding a dog, and create a probability of 0,01 of finding a Shiny Dog! =)

      Seventh, you shouldn't create more legendaries on this game. Nintendo made this mistake and now 10% of the pokemons of the new version are Legendaries!!! This is so bad! They have nothing now of Legendary!

      Eighth, on the avatar chat can you make that when you're at the bottom of the conversation, new messages appear, but when you go back to previous messages, the messages no longer scroll.

      Nineth, on the avatar chat can you make a keyboard shortcut, like "Ignore:/gamer name/" to ignore the spammer! =)
      I think you should read all this email, and you will see that those ideas are not bad.

      Hope I helped you!

      Congratulations for your amazing flash game (best free flash game ever!).

      Félix.

    143. Hey Sam just a few suggestions
      1. When I search for trades, it's annoying when I click on someone's offer and then click the go back button where it takes back to the main screen so I have to search trades again every time I don't like someones requests
      2. You should have something to increase the chance of a rare pokemon since it feels almost impossible to get a shiny rare pokemon such as nidoran or eevee
      3. I don't know if you have something planned, but I do think you need to have a Safari Zone level to catch rare pokemon
      4. You should have special events where certain days have a higher shiny ratio or you can get a unique pokemon such as surfing pikachu or double exp weekend

      ReplyDelete
    144. Sam forgot to say this:

      For the poll, people who have hacked level 0 Pokemon will vote no, and people who don't will vote yes xD, so I think it might come down to the fact of how many people have hacked Pokemon.
      Also, if the keeping level 0 Pokemon option wins, in the next blog entry for PTD (usually for the new weekly progress) you should post, saying if people hack level 0, their Pokemon will be deleted, because it's kinda unfair :/

      ReplyDelete
    145. my guess for the new pokemon is snorlax.(graphicfroce got one some how.) just saying. oh, and i am trading my entei for 2 mews or 1 mew and 2 shiny goldeens. search "glaceon rocks" to offer

    148. Sam I have a big question...Why you pick put Entei, Suicune and Raikou like the legendaries when they doesn't belong to this generation? I think you may put Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres instead of them and then add Lugia and Mewtwo (all regular and shinys) and whay theres not reg form of mew and shiny form of the legendaries?

      The Game Its Great!! Thanks for all!! :D

      ReplyDelete
    151. i just want to say that i love the way you handled the loss of pokemon i mean its good that they are free because first of all it helps people get pokemon back and also it will help less skilled players an opportunity to catch up with those of us who have been playing this game since the beginning. keep up the good work.

    153. Hey Sam, would you consider making it possible for shiny Pokemon to learn their breeding moves through a tutor? Some of the breeding moves are really important and it'd be virtually impossible to get a shiny Pokemon with the right breeding moves.

    154. Hi Sam. I have played a lot on the Oak's Lab level because I am hunting a shiny rattata. I have noticed that there is no way of failing this level, because there are always 2 candies left. I don't know if this is a bug, I just wanted you to know.

    155. Venusaur can't relearn Bulbasaur's Seed Bomb?
      Beedrill can't relearn Weedle's Bug Bite?

    156. Sam, I think you should change the text for Psyshock. It's a bit redundant - "This attack will hit all enemies it hits." Maybe something along the lines of, "This attack will hit all enemies it makes contact with."

    158. Hey,
      I'd like to know if something will be done to solve the problems that mac users can encounter? Because I used to play on my PC, but it's broken, so I had to change my computer and I now own a macbook and I can't play anymore because there's a lot of problems; I can't drop a pokemon to my team, if I try to do that, it leads me to this pokemon's page (with the attacks...). I tried a lot of things to avoid that problem, but nothing worked. I asked some people who told me that the other mac users had the same kind of problems, that's why I'd like to know if you could do something about it.
      Thanks.

    159. Hey Sam I like how your trying to manipulate the amount of hacking what can be done on this game thats great! 2 ideas what I had what would be good to add I believe is when you nickname a pokémon in the pokémon center, it shows its nickname when you select in game as well. The other idea was to remove the new lvl 50 free adoption pokemon, because I think that it is just like handouts and people wont play your game as much, due to that they don't have to train them as much. Good job in this update and the upcoming Snorlax.

    160. Sam, I don't know if it is suppose to be like this but, Entei can't relearn any moves, and he can't learn new moves on his own.

    161. Sam, if you're done with everything too early, work on the ability Levitate. It at least makes Gengar a bit more useful.

    162. sam, how do i post a question for a weekly post question?

      ReplyDelete
    163. Sam, I've take the job of informing the people outside the blog of the updates. Like PTD Wiki. I just think people would like it if they could play the updates quicker because to be honest, I'm always the first person in the STATE to know about the updates. I'm on here over 5 hours a day. 0__0

      Just trying to help,

    164. Sam,

      You said the level 50 pokemon would be available for a week, but with the server down, there is no way to access them. Could you please extend this treat for a few days, it being halloween and all?

      Yours truly,
      Billy Jack

    165. Sam, awesome job on this game, I've been playing for a while and haven't ever posted.

      There is a problem with waterfall where if I have a super high level Goldeen and should 1 hit kill the pokemon, my Goldeen always goes in for a second hit because there is so much delay on the move and it takes longer for the damage to apply.

      Keep up the great work

    166. I have 2 suspicions on what the new pokemon will be but since they both violate the game usual rules...

      They're both awesome but... lets see.

      #1 I asked/suggested for the tower last week or so
      #2 Has its name hidden on Sam's post =P

      waiting to see (it probably won't be it but I like to keep my hopes up lol =P)

    168. Sam, if you can, in upcoming versions, add the pokemon from others regions like Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh and Unova.Please.

      An suggestion from leonmaxus13, fan of your game.

    170. i think the new pokemon will be kangaskhan since its supposed to be cubone's mother :)

      ReplyDelete
    171. i really want togepi and phyduck. but at this level, if you think about it, wouldnt snorlax smash through the floor to floor 1, so its not possible for snorlax. maybe its muk/grimer, considering the dark colors, if not it might be the beloved dittos, basically not a solid pokemon xD

    173. Sam, how do you decide what abilities to create first?

      ReplyDelete
    174. why do not you add more pokeball and when you finish the game you could add as des Johto Hoenn then Sinnoh battle frontier and that neither the ash had to have more adventures in the game instead of just the Kanto region and also get several new pokemon

      ReplyDelete
    175. Hey Sam, in the trading center, when you adopt a battle-ready Pokemon, like Kingler for example, after clicking the adopt button it will change from the user's name to saying "Kingler's Profile."

    176. Sam, it doesn't look like Aromatherapy is healing confusion. The confusion status is acting like an attack dealing damage based on its attack type.

    177. Hey Sam can you add to the avatar chat if they spam it kicks them? :D Cause I just went in a few minutes ago and there were loads of spammers... and scammers XDD

    178. Hy sam :)
      i was wondering if in a future update you could bring back the dog tri as a mystery gift code and if you do could you also make them shiny if not its ok

      thx for making the best game ever

      ReplyDelete
    179. According to Bulbapedia, when a Pokemon is confused, there is a 50% chance they will hurt themselves as though they hit themselves with a base 40 power typeless attack. Lower-level Pokemon shouldn't hurt themselves more than higher-leveled Pokemon, and it shouldn't be based on type.

      ReplyDelete
    180. hey sam please i think that it isnt snorlax cause for one people are saying its snorlax but that kills the chances so it has to be lapras or areodactyl

    181. I believe the idea to change lvl 0 to lvl 1 hurts two groups: Those who caught these pokemon in the first place and those who traded for them with their prized pokemon. The group that is meant to be affected (the hackers) will be upset, but in reality they spent fractional amounts of time to obtain their pokemon compared to the others; they will not be nearly as upset. Personally, I have collected upwards of 10 lvl 0 pokemon. I feel like the people voting in this poll aren't a good representation of the affected community as they likely do not have or never did have lvl 0 pokemon.

      Many people will say, "What is the point of a lvl 0 pokemon?" For me, the whole point of the game is to both finish it and "catch 'em all". Lvl 0 pokemon, while a glitch, were a special subset that I was happy to have and felt I earned by following the game closely and playing right when the affected update came out.

      In short, I'm disappointed that this was left up to a poll, and I feel that this punishes a lot of the wrong people for the game's early lack of security. I disapprove of the retroactive security measure, especially since lvl 1 poliwag, vulpix, etc. still have no place in the game (unless breeding is implemented)...

    182. @ leon.lol
      Having followed Sam for some time, he appreciates the interest in following into the newer generations, but also has expressed that he wishes to only do the first 1-151 in this game (sans the legendary Beasts). Rather than incorporating all of them into one huge game, he's planning on continuing as long as the fan base has steam to keep him going. As long as it's lucrative I can't see him stopping this, so just wait for the ones you want to see from the later generations and enjoy his (fantastic) iteration of Pokemon. He also has stated he's interested in venturing into something slightly different than a tower defense style game, trying to incorporate something new and more intricate into the future ones, but he also has a while before that would happen. I'm sure he'll enlighten us on his future plans as that time approaches.

      This is for Sam, however:
      Would you considering adding a fix for the legendary beasts so that they can learn/relearn moves rather than coming with the endgame ones they start with. They're useful and powerful, but don't feel the amount of roles they could seeing as to their not being able to learn many TMs or their native abilities. I realize the game's progression is a priority, but on a future update, adding their pre-40 moves and carrying through into the future would make their play value more useful, much less novel.
      Regardless, keep up the good work. If you add this as a fix, I'm sure I'll notice in the update list.

    185. Hello,

      I love you pokémon TD game. I'd like to report you a bug on my 2 android devices: the touch screen doesn't match properly with the game display

      I've seen this bug by playing your game on an older release (on Feb 2011) on my chinese android tablett, an this bug still exist on the last released version on my HTC Desire Z

      I must touch on the top of an icon to really touch it. For example I can't touch the BACK button on the level up page because this button is on the top of the screen so I can't touch upper.

      Regards

    186. Snorlax is catchable if it shows up on the ghost side. He is rare 1/1000.

    187. yeaaaa just caught my snorlax... thank you sam for the lovely fast forward buttons. that would've taken a lot longer if those hadn't been implemented into the game. great update as always.

    190. Hey sam,

      Will you make pikachu have the move volt tackle in ptd 2? I've been searching and searching for a pikachu and I found one, and I wanted it to be like Ash's pikachu. I leveled it up to lv 86 and I thought in my head, "Maybe Sam didn't put volt tackle in this game." So please here me out and put volt tackle as one of the moves only for pikachu.

      Thanks for reading,
