WOW, what that was a crazy week! So many new pokemon to catch! I think we have all been waiting for the Safari Zone just for the vast amount of new pokemon. Many of you wanted a Rock Tunnel kind of level but in the end of it I felt that it wasn't really needed. I thought the "Joey" mechanic would be enough to make the level feel fresh.Granted it wasn't perfect on the first try... Due to the quick feedback of you guys I was able to tweak how it works and I think it's in a pretty good spot. Some of you think it's too easy now but I still think that it's providing enough challenge without being incredibly frustrating.

So last week we also had a poll about shadow pokemon's experience gain. While the results were clearly in favor of giving shadow pokemon the similar experience boost as shiny, there was a big public outcry about it so I wanted to tell you guys how I felt about the whole thing and what I ended up doing.

Okay so what I ended up doing was that Shadow pokemon will earn the same experience as a Normal pokemon. COMPROMISE! Some will say "Sam I can't believe you did that, the poll was clear! Why did you give in again!" To understand my reasoning we have to look at why I added Shadow pokemon in the first place. Shadow pokemon were added so that people that people had something to trade to people that had hard to catch or adoption only pokemon. Also to add another layer of collection, something to reward the player, and to promote trading. So when doing this I thought what can I do to make them different in a way that they wouldn't be overpowered in battle. The reason I don't want them to be overpowered in battle is that I don't want player to feel like they need to use a shadow pokemon to gain the greatest edge in battle. I want the player to choose which type of pokemon they want to use in battle. So since shiny gain more experience I thought wouldn't it be kinda cool if shadow pokemon earned less. It seemed to fit the whole shadow motif. Unfortunately people viewed shadows in a negative light because of the decrease in experience. So I decided to remove this negative factor in them. I hope that explains what is in my head.

After such a long week of things to do I broke a promise.. and this week I will do it! I will finish the Pokemon Center's new look! Besides that we are going to take it a little easy so that I can finish that darn thing and so I can rest a little bit.

Weekly  Progress for PTD:

Finding a way to make players be able to get 1 Shadow Pokemon per week on their account (100%) - Essentially the new Daily Gift Rare prizes will enable you to get one in at least 7 days or sooner.
Give out my current pokemon that is being traded, Shiny Shellder (100%) - Traded it to "newtothegame"! He traded my Shadow Gyarados, Shiny Starmie, Shiny Goldeen, Shiny Tentacruel, Shiny Gyarados, Shadow Starmie!
Put out a new trading pokemon on my account samO (100%) - I put a Shiny Tauros! Give me your best offers!
Rework Daily Code prizes (100%)- This is coming thanks to all your feedback! I simplified the prizes, to just casino coins and SnD Coins. That way you can use the coins to buy what you want instead of getting something that you already have.
New Pokemon added on v5.6 (100%)
  • Implement in Adoption (shiny and battle ready) (100%)
  • Implement Shadow in Daily Gift and Casino Corner (100%)
Remove Shadow NPC Trade pokemon from the Daily Gift and Casino Corner (100%) - Meaning the only way to get Shadow Mr. Mime, Shadow Jynx, and so on will be from trading a shadow for it in game. All who have those pokemon already will keep them.
Remove Shadow Pokemon that you can get from achievements from the Daily Gift and Casino Corner (100%)
Pokemon Center new look (85%)
Fix a bug with the move Eruption (0%)
New Mystery Gift (100%) - Pokemon Tangela!
  • Add stats to game (100%)
  • Add Graphic (100%)
  • Add Shiny Graphic (100%)
  • Add Shadow Graphic (100%)
  • Add New Moves (2) (100%)
    • Ingrain (100%)
    • Tickle (100%)
  • Implement TM/Relearn moves (100%)
  • Implement in Adoption (Battle Ready and Shiny) (100%) - Note that you will need to play v5.7 for Tangela to properly work.
  • Implement in Shadow in Game Corner (100%) - Note that you will need to play v5.7 for Tangela to properly work.
  • Implement in Trading Center (100%)
  • Implement in Save Code (100%)
Level Cap Raised To 90 (100%) - JabXIII asked for it!
  • New Move: Eruption (100%) - Entei level 85 
  • Implement in Game (100%)
  • Implement in Save Code (100%)
Implement New Moves in Pokemon Center's list (100%)

Fixed a problem on the Daily Gift, when you win an SnD Coin it would show the wrong message (100%)

Weekly Progress for HTD:
Show move cooldown in the UI (100%)
Have some units have Fire skills and some have Shadow skills, the last one have a random combination of both (100%)
Add new Whelp Behavior (100%)
Implement new graphics for the Shadow Moves and Shadow Icons (100%)


Let's keep this going guys, we are close to the end! As always let me know what you think!

    2. Oh, thoght it was something even worse. But they are already a nightmare to get =S Dunno if its just bad luck or if you change the slot machine code but I'm getting way less coins then before (previously I thought there was 2 that were rewardind more, but now there seem to be no diference, am I right?) yesterday I made a total of 1000 coins... thats 300 days to get a shadow... Playing everyday seems to short now =S Please do something about this

      About the shadow pokemon. Its a pain in the ass that you did poll for one thing and did another but at least rather a normal xp then a penalty, thanks for that part

      Delete
    3. good point on that 300 days thing, I added something to the list about that :) you are on a roll today lol

      Delete
    4. LOL sry about that I can now to the post I was going to do on the oficial release post (before it was released with all the info to think on =P

      LOVED IT!!! Think it would be to much to add 5 copies (3x2) of that map and each would have one of that "random waves pack"? and everytime you ended the lvl you could either go to an adjacent part or leave the SZ? Just an idea, cause would have more SZone feeling into it and since they could be all looking the same and the waves are already made, would just be add one to each (or have them all 6 random lol just to travell around) doable?

      OH the the img I found and that was waiting for the release to show (probably some already know) http://chzpokememes.files.wordpress.com/2011/09/pokmon-hopefully-the-kids-arent-still-stupid.jpg ^^, wasn't me but its cool ;)

      ps: I'd say more level MAPS and less lvl CAPS XD This last gym came to quick =S Wasn't the Gyms meant to be the end of the chapter and with stuff to do meanwhile? Now that is harder to lvl up the caps are going higher to fast lol

    4. Not sure what it would be yet, I have to look at how many moves it's going to take to make >.<

      Delete
    5. Shouldn't be too much now. Pokemon generally stop learning new moves after 70 with the exception of Legendaries. Speaking of, how do you plan on implementing ultimate starter moves like Frenzy Plant? Will there be an in-game tutor for that, or will it be like Mystery Dungeon where they learn it at level 100?

      Delete
    6. The only moves that need adding for level up would be Eruption for Entei at level 85, Aura Sphere for Mew at level 100 and the special extra moves for Victini of V-create, Fusion Bolt and Fusion Flare.
      We could go all the way to 100!

  15. Hey Sam, just a little thought here, I've been following this game long enough to know you have it roughly mapped out, but seeing as there hasn't been a challange mode in forever, would a suggestion of a challange mode level to get surf be a good one?

  17. Dear Sam,
    It's been two weeks since you promised to change the Daily Gift percentages. Every day that goes by without it being changed is another day that I wish I hadn't bought a Daily Gift. I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who's sick and tired of getting a common Spearow for the 80th time or getting a Duskull Costume for yet AGAIN. Is there any way you could possibly make some sort of reimbursement program? Where we can swap in copies of avatars or "Breeder move" Pokemon for shadows? I don't think you understand how unbelievably frustrating it is to alternate between getting Caterpies and Haunter Costume avatars for a full week. I know money is supposedly easily hacked... but I'm a newer player and I work hard for my in-game cash. It takes me an hour to get 100,000 and I've been getting absolutely no reward for it. Please change the Daily Gifts. And please make some sort of compensation plan.

  23. Using Joey as a Pokemon...priceless. Did you get some inspiration from LittleKuriboh's most recent Yugioh Abridged episode where Yugi tells Joey to use a tackle attack?

    Thanks for modifying the Safari Zone to its current conditions. Catching Kangaskhan and Tauros was impossible before the changes.

    Fair enough for the Shadow Pokemon. I thought you had initially put them in as a means of getting Pokemon easier, especially the legendary dogs and Mew and that the price was making them harder to bring up.

    Yeah, I think a break is called for, especially after this update. Now if you'll excuse me, I've got a Programming Midterm to study for.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Sam, sometimes Kangaskhan and Tauoros too fast to catch and many pokemon is "blocking" my bait and rocks. Can you lower the speed of them? Ty

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Then use the fastest target option.

      Delete
    2. well i got tauros easy all u need to do is put bait on and target fast once u hit it with bait change target to slow and use a rock and then after 1 more of that just keep it on lowest hp rinse and repeat till its in the red

    So i want to ask you are you planning to put a way to get them before the and of the game;
    Please i really want them all.


    Keep up the good work :D

  29. Sam, will you at least consider adding just a few more Shadow moves? I'm sorry, but Shadow Rush alone does not cut it. At least two more. Looking over the list of Shadow moves on Bulbapedia, I'd suggest Shadow Break (a physical move, with more power than Shadow Rush) and Shadow Storm (a special move). Shadow Break has 75 base power and Shadow Storm has 95 base power.

    http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Shadow_moves

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. At most he should make a special shadow move with the same power as shadow rush, maybe more powerful ones at higher levels.

      Delete
    2. But there is no special Shadow move with 55 base power. Closest I can find is Shadow Wave, which has 50 base power. You do realize Sam didn't just make up Shadow Rush, right? It's an actual move.

  30. I dont get the shadow pokemon per week thing. Help!

  31. Thanks, Sam. I was really ticked that Shadows might get the same XP as Shineys.
    It still would have been cooler if they got 1/2 less, but hey, you did well!

  34. I don't personally think you should make shadow pokémon more common, but I guess it's not my call...

    Replies
    1. They're getting cheaper, what's the point of adding them if it takes weeks to get just ONE of them.

      Delete
    2. because they are supposed to be hard to get, giving other player a chance to get higher end pokémon by doing smart trades. By making shadow pokémon so common, they are just used for "filling" but serve no purpose. Just my 2 cents in this.

      Delete
  35. Thank you so, so much for making such an amazing game! I have but one request... Can you please make Rare Candy available to be bought, either in the casino, at the PokeMart? I have more money than I know what to do with, and Rare Candy is the only think I could make use of at the moment. I don't mind if buying them costs a lot, just so long as it's KIND OF reasonable, at least. Thanks again and keep up the good work!

  36. Along with removing shadow Mr. Mime and Jynx so they are trade only, what about Farfetch'd since you have to trade for him too?

  37. Please don't increase the level cap. If you increase the level cap, by blaine we will have level 100 pokes and i feel that the challenge might be less interesting that way...
    Please, think about this Sam!

  38. Hello Sam:
    I would like to give a suggestion: Could you make the Pokemon Center trading system to show what Pokemon each person asks for their Pokemon in the search list? Because it's annoying to be opening each Request Trade window just to see what are players asking for their Pokemon. Thanks. ;)

    1. Do not attack the Muks, avoid them.

    2. use nidoking and nidoqueen or venomoth
      venemoth would be easy mode since you van cath them on lvl 65
      and you dont have to move them around all the time
      I did spam hyper beam and when they where low hp use rest

      Delete
    3. Just use decent leveled poison types and Magneton... you don't even have to move...

      Delete
    4. just use a bunch of gengars + one water pokemon. muk's poison attack doesnt affect posion types (gengar) and sandslash is weak to water.

      Delete
    5. Well a good way and the way i did on the 1st try just is get 2 gastlys and teach them curse and use it on the muk keep doing till on like 1 hp then use a pokemon to kill and ps yoy use up most your super potions and for the rest just get a whirlwind at the bottom guarding candy and a strong attk damge pokemon like dragonite using dragon rush

  41. I have an idea regarding shadow pokemon...and when im registered on the forum i will mention it there also...we could actually have shadow pokemon get less exp like they were...HOWEVER...at the same what i figured we could do....is have the shadow moves 2x effective on regular pokemon, .5x on other shadow pokemon, and 1x on shiny pokemon...that way they might have some advantage...yet also a way to balance it. what do you think Sam?

    your feedback is appreciated, Thanks.

  46. Hello Sam,

    The addition to pokemon abilities is great and all but I was hoping you could start adding held items now especially the everstone. That would be very helpful. Having to press the stop evolving every time when you are training especially the one that you are raising at level 1 gets annoying ... on some you have to press stop evolving like 50 times before they reach level 80... kind of annoying

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. To add on to this, it doesn't even need to implement a full held item system, just a auto-stop evolution option.

      Delete
  47. Sam, I am very pleasently surprised. Unlike what the majority of the people that voted in the poll wanted, you didn't give Shadow Pokémon a boost in experience. I actually expected you to do it and as I said in an earlier post, I would have been disappointed. But you didn't do it (or at least, you didn't give them 2X normal exp.).

    Thanks, Sam.

  51. Finding a way to make players be able to get 1 Shadow Pokemon per week on their account (0%) - This might mean reducing the cost, or increasing the chance. Not sure yet, it won't mean you automatically get one each week for every account you make.

    My first idea is a trading game where you must trade a certain amount of pokemon like 5 to earn that random shadow. Or make it so if you say a certain pokemon, and we must play on a certain (hidden) level with that pokemon, the level show a code. Enter that code in the mystery gift and you will get a random shadow pokemon. Tell me what you think.

    1. Perfect? Have you seen the list of Pokémon with breeding moves? Faint Attack Pidgey is the only one with even remotely any use. Reversal is useless in PTD as if it has that low HP, your first instinct should be reaching for the Super Potion, not switching attacks, so Rattata is useless. Fearow has horrible Special Attack, which Tri Attack runs off of, so Spearow is useless. Caterpie and Weedle ALREADY LEARN BUG BITE BY LEVELING UP so Caterpie and Weedle are useless. Poison Fang is weak and Arbok already learns the more powerful Gunk Shot, so Ekans is useless. Alakazam's Attack stat is in the toilet and that's what Ice Punch runs off of, so Abra is useless. And... who the hell uses Charge at all in PTD? So Pikachu is useless. Sam, please read this. You need to overhaul the breeding move Pokémon something fierce. My suggested list is as thus:

      Rattata: Flame Wheel

      Pikachu: Volt Tackle

      Koffing: Psybeam

      Growlithe: Close Combat

      Grimer: Shadow Punch

      Shellder: Rock Blast

      Farfetch'd: Leaf Blade

      Mr. Mime: Nasty Plot


      I realize you haven't yet made Koffing catchable in the game- which brings me to another point; You DO realize that there is an in-game trade for Lickitung right near Fuchsia City, right? Could've made that happen right after Fuchsia Gym if we used a Golduck at any point in the level. Which would mean you could have put Koffing in as a Mystery Gift instead of Lickitung. Tell me, Sam, when are we gonna be able to get Koffing? What made you choose Grimer over Koffing for the 5.5 Mystery Gift?

  65. Sam for the last battle it will be probably vs mewthree well I have a idea for the waves....

    6 waves waves (the pokemon are aleways coming back until they faint)(right before we left to battle mewthree ash come and give us The Hyper Potion )

    1st wave : all legendary
    2nd wave : all legendary
    3rd wave : all legendary
    4th wave : all legendary
    5th wave : all legendary
    6th wave : mewthree

    when we finnaly beat mewthree team (rocket,galactic or others) come and catch mewthree whit a master ball and here we go for the next quest for PTD2

    Hope you read it >:D

    But maybe a 5% chance or something for the shadow pokemon, even if it's only in the rare chance? It's much appreciated ^_^

    but I miss the shiny starters on the Daily Prize!! I know they are on for adoption, but I would like a non-nicknamed Squirtle and Bulbasaur, just like my shiny Charmander.. Please, reconsider adding them back, even with a lower rate.

  79. I have an idea for an Easter Egg.
    Use a Pikachu,Butterfree and Pidgeotto on Cerulean Gym and a Togepi might walk through the level in the first wave or something.
    Kinda like if you take Togepi into Cerulean Gym in HGSS it might "cry softly".

  83. Hey,

    Whenever I'm in the Pokemon centre, I always forget whether I've caught a certain pokemon or not so I reckon to make life easier could you add a little pokeball symbol next to the level of the pokemon to imply that we've caught that one?

    Cheers

  84. Thanks for fixing the bug with the Pokedex! Now I can finally get rid of all of those Shadow Eevee/Eeveelutions i've been holding onto.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I also had a suggestion for the Legendary Dogs.

    Since you changed the XP gain on Shadows, the Shadow Dogs kind of have a leg up on the regular ones due to their ability to use Shadow Rush. Would you consider giving the regular Dogs a Shiny Pokemon XP gain? Right now I see no reason to want a regular dog over a Shadow (unless you're collecting) since a Shadow is easier to obtain.

  86. sam can you make a mewtwo mystery gift, because the level cap is so close to 100? Mewtwo lvl 70 moves: phystrike, electroball, shadowball and aura shere. If you did it'd be epic! I got the moves and level from the serebii.net homepage, if anyone's interested.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Mewtwo will probably be available at or near the last level. So if Sam keeps up the good work (without risking his grades for it of course) we should be getting there in a month or two. It might seem like a lot, but seeing how he's only one person that's a lot. Keep up the good work/task juggling Sam!

  87. Shadow pokemon are no longer available in the daily gift. Was that done purposely so that they can only be obtained through casino coins? By the way I love the new daily gift prices :)

    ReplyDelete
  88. Because of voting about shadow pokemon exp, wouldn't it be nice, if you implement option to turn on or off extra shadow pokemon(when it's on, shadow pokemon get 150% of exp like shinies, when it's off they earn regular 50% of exp)?

    ReplyDelete
  89. Daily gift setup is the best so far. It allows for reasonable coin obtainability and adding the low chances for SnD coins is good for a million reasons. Now back to shiny collecting.

  98. Hey Sam,
    Since you're working on the pokemon center layout this week, would there be any possible way that on the home page where trade requests is, beside it you could put (1) or how ever many requests are pending approval to know if you have trade requests instead of how it is now where you have to go in, and look through each pokemon up for trade seperately to see offers. I think being able to see requests from the home page would help with the problem of people putting pokemon up for trade just as storage and then forgetting about them.
    -Thanks, Colby

    1. Or somehow put the ones with pending offers at the top of the page and then have the rest at the bottom. I agree

  101. Hello!

    I have always put my pokemon up to fight and tabbed out to do other stuff while I'm waiting for the battle to end, but I always come back to the page only to find that one or two of my pokemon are ready to level up, so I have to do it manually.

    Could you please consider making an option that allows the pokemon to level up on their own, like in the proper pokemon games.

    Or if you don't want to do that, could you enable some kind of sound effect or allarm to go off whenever a pokemon has maxed out it's XP.

    I believe it would be a great improvement to the game and I'm sure most other PTD players would enjoy it as well.

    Thank you for your attention and great job on HTD so far!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I LOVE the new daily code 20 SnD coins you can pretty much chose what pokemon to get with the SnD coins

    ReplyDelete
  103. Thanks for allowing all this feedback Sam!

    May I suggest that the random shadow bought in the pokemon center is given out at rates roughly consistent with the likelihood of finding them in the game? That way, it would prevent some pokemon like the legendary dogs (in megaman's comment above) or other legendaries from being easier to get in a shadow version than in a regular version. So, for example, the chance of getting a shadow spearrow would be greater than a shadow pikachu, which would be greater than a shadow legendary dog. I think this would greatly increase the appeal of certain shadows and would make the trading for shadows more competitive.

    Thanks, L'hippocampe

  109. I like how you increased the amount of coins you could get with the daily code. But how are we goind to get breeding move or shadow pokemon? I know you can buy ONE in the game corner for 300,000 casino coins, but it would take forever to get alot of them. Could you possibly lower it to 200,000 or 150,000?
