Weekly Progress: PTD v5.8, epic legendary bird boss

Want to get the legendary dogs? Shiny Mew? or any other shiny pokemon in the game? Adopt them today using SnD coins! 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! 


Okay all rested up and ready to go. Last Thursday I had my first programming test at the University, and I felt really good about it. It doesn't hurt that I have years and years of programming experience but I the professor posted the score online and I got an A! Wooohoo! Okay enough bragging... This past week like I mentioned I took it easy but we still got some goodies. Level cap is now 90, and after the 7th gym I believe we will reach 100. My point of view is that I won't raise it past 100 just to keep in line with the games. I also fixed Eruption, a level 85 move that Entei learns, and the sponsor got around to making a code for Tangela so I put that in.

This week we will have a story level involving Gary and one of the legendary birds! I will also make a cooperative version of this same map for multiplayer. A lot of people have been asking for a co-op level and I thought this "boss" level would be a good fit. I'm also going to be having a new mystery gift pokemon, new ability, new achievement, and some new TMs! So I think you guys will really enjoy this update! Also I think a lot of you will ask... you can NOT capture the legendary bird on this level. You will be able to catch them after you learn Surf so be patient :)

    2. #2 and please dont raise the level cap until last gym because it is so hard to keep up with the level cap. Before v. 5.6, I had all my top team up to level 80 and it was easy that way. at 5.7, i was like WTF because i had worked sooo long on making my team good, and now this 10 level cap raise bomb is dropped?

      Delete
    3. Hey Sam, congratulations on your A! And for PTD 2, I thought of something epic: the criminal master will be... Shadow Lugia!!! And his minions will be Shadow Pokémon! Can you do something with that, please? That would be AWESOME!

      Delete
  2. You noob, Sam. :P First indeed.

    I love the game, though I am eagerly awaiting another 'level up' level, as route 15 is now pretty slow going, even for a team of shinies.

    In short, I wanna say I love the game (again) and all of the updates. I appreciate your hard work and hope everything is going well for you in life, and it sounds like they are. I am VERY eagerly awaiting PTD 2. I think you may have mentioned trading between games as being something that you will implement, I want to say that I support this feature. I would love to trade some pokemon from PTD 1 to PTD 2.

    I also want to say I am very excited for the prospect of catching the legendary birds, and I hope you make them all available and appropriately hard to catch. I also hope that you will eventually make Mewtwo available to catch!

  3. The mid-level shiny alert is buggy. When a shiny appears, I get the "Achievement Saved" alert instead of the "shiny pokemon has appeared", and the game reverts to 1x speed like normal.

    1. That happenes so you can catch it without killing it

    2. Let me guess- this happens with Shiny Pidgey, Rattata, Zubat, and Geodude, right?

      Also... hads = dash = Rapidash = Mystery Gift Ponyta = we're never getting Koffing, are we?

      Delete
    3. Koffing is probably on Cinnabar in the Mansion. Thats the only place i know it can be caught on R/B

    4. Oh, that makes sense. Yeah, one of them was for a shiny pidgey, and I'm not sure which one the second alert was for.

      Delete
  4. I always wondered what happened to Gary.?.?.?

    ReplyDelete
  5. IM NUMBER 3!!! YEAHHHHHHHHH i hope...probably like 30th or something. btw, the level caps dont really correspond w/ the level difficulties do they. because if lvl 90 = gym7 and lvl 95 or so = gym8 and lvl 100 = others, then the game will be pretty short. also, i beat fushcia gym with all lvl 50's

    ReplyDelete
  6. So will we be able to get the birds this update or later on

    ReplyDelete
  7. So we can catch them soon maybe next update

  8. I don't think you get an achievement for being number one when you write the blog!! xD
    Anywho, I can't WAIT for the legendary birds! But I have a really dumb request. Could you make the Mew in the S&D coin adoption not shiny? Or at least add a not shiny one. I know it sounds ridiculous but, I would prefer to have a Mew that looks like, well the original Mew from the movie and such! Haha. And you should just call him Mew. Not Mewy. No Y... Then, I would buy Coins if you did that just for me! =D
    And just to be clear here, I LOVE YOUR GAME!! Thanks!

  9. Good job on your test! Can't wait for the update

  10. I am guessing the bird is Zapados because there is a two in the tags two=dos

    1. orange league?

      Delete
    2. Silver Conference, Orange League was for the Orange Islands

      Delete
    3. No, I think it was the silver cup or something. Because it took place on mt. Silver

      Delete
    4. yes we should definitley have a separate part like challenge mode but make it Orange Islands. Also there should be bonus levels after the whole story mode where you complete objectives or missions in certain levels like capture x amount of some type of pokemon and use them all in a special level to unlock the gs ball and if you get it a new level is unlocked where you can capture celebi and after you catch it it becomes a boss. Or you can make the pokeball into a gs ball and you only get one. after you capture celebi you cant get another celebi. IF ANYONE AGREES WITH THIS JUST REPLY AND TYPE "I AGREE"
      Then Sam will take this into account.

  29. Sam, I'm fine with the level cap being 100, as long as wild pokemon aren't lvl 100. I think the max should be 90 per wild pokemon, 95-97 for boss, and 100 for Mewthree

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The actual highest cap in any game for wild pokemon was 80, but they lowered the max cap more and more with each generation.

    4. Actually, in Pearl, Diamond, Platinum, the highest lvl. pkmn you could catch was lvl. 100. There was a certain pond somewhere that only gave out magikarps, but you could get a lvl. 1-100 magikarp.

  31. I remember a post on a previous blog that suggested that evolved pokemon would have a larger attack radius in PTD 2... my idea is that maybe attack radius could instead be correlated with a pokemon's speed (because it could move farther to attack). This also gives attackers a better reason to raise their speed, and it makes moves such as dragon dance, quiver dance, or the moves that can raise all stats even more appealing. This would also mirror the "sweeper" kind of pokemon often found in competitive battling. Finally, if (and hopefully when) hold items are added to PTD 2, the choice scarf could become a feasible choice in addition to the choice band and choice specs. I think that this would make an awesome addition to PTD and make it stand out as something that makes it unique and different when compared to the original PTD.

  32. Thanks for all you've done for thus game! I've been playing on and off since past March. I have enjoyed the progression of the game and it's features, keep up the great work. I've started to read one of Donald Trumps books. I'm sure you already know this, but you seem to love what you're doing, and are making a bit of profit! Your passion will set you apart from the rest, and make you get noticed, as long as you are persistent. Some people were mad at your decision to make Shadow pokemon gain the same experience as normal. You listened to the majority, and adapted the game for them. You can not make everyone happy, so it is probably best to listen to your gut - after all, you had the vision to play a game, which now has a substantial community following it. I just hope I can find a passion and work with it when I go off to college soon.

  36. HEY SAM THATS MY IDEA PROF ELM SHOULD ASK US IF YOU WANT TO GET SOME OLD POKEMON OF YOURS FROM KANTO AND THERE SHOULD BE A OPTION OF YES AND NO AND IF SOMEBODY CHOOSE YES SOME POKEMONS OF PTD1 SHOULD BE TRANSFERRED BUT THE LVL CAP OF THOSE POKEMON SHOULD BE IN LIMIT OF THE GAME(FOR EX.MY SHADOW VICTINI IS LVL85 BUT AFTER TRANSFERRING IT SHOULD BE OF LVL10 OR WHATEVER THE LVL CAP WILL BE THERE THAT TIME)AND WE WILL NOT GET OUR STARTER IN OUR LAB BUT THERE WILL BE AN OPTION OF GETTING STARTER IN THE LAB BUT WE WILL NOT GET IT PROF ELM WILL TELL THAT IT HAS BEEN GONE SOMEWHER OR LOST HE WILL ALSO TELL THAT "SO THE STARTER OF YOURS IS ALWAYS GETTING OUT OF HIS POKEBALL AND RUNNING IN THE LAB I THINK THAT THIS HE HAS GONE OUT OF THE LAB"AND WE SHOULD GO IN SEARCH OF LAB AND AFTER EXITING FROM THE LAB THE STARTER SHOULD COME RUNNING TOWARDS US BY A GROUP OF WILD TAILLOWS AND THEN WE SHOULD FIGHT BY TAKING OUR STARTER HOWS MY IDEA SAM YOU CAN REPLY ME IN MY BLOG MY BLOGS LINK http://www.gauravgames.blogspot.in/ PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOU THINK SAM AND OTHERS AND ANOYMOUS THE LEAGUE THAT ASH ENTERS ITS NAME IS INDIGO PLATEAU

  37. hey sam idea of ptd 2 is we should not get our starter in the lab but there should be an option of getting starter but prof elm should tell that the starter we chose is very naughty and ran out of pokeball and escaped from the lab and after exiting from the lab the starter should come running towards us by running from a group of wild taillows and now we start fighting with our starter and also anoymous the league that ash enters its name is indigo plateau

  39. Sam i think you should make a multiplayer mode on PTD that the players have to work together to fight a boss, taking only 2 pkms or 3 each of the trainers. it's just an idea :p

    ReplyDelete
  40. in ptd 2 i wish to u put a region like jotho, sinnoh or unova and oblious pokemon of that region :D
    i wonder what will happen in next history :?

    ReplyDelete
  41. Sam, do you have any plans to make leveling low-level pokemon easier? Even using the most recent training route with moves that hit everything in range and high-levels supporting them by finishing everything off, it still takes infuriatingly long, especially as the levels get higher and higher. I know that it should have to take time, but I spent the entire day leveling my level 1 shadow when I got home and wasn't able to even get it to 80.

    3. A Pokemon maybe magmar or electrabuzz

  46. Can u increase chances of getting snd coins and have a poll for mystery gift about what it should be I want rare stuff like items avatars or snd coins please have a poll

    ReplyDelete
  47. COOL LEGENDARY BIRD!!! anyway really what i want in PTD2 is hold items so i can get steelix and other pokemon that evolve like him.

    lso i really hope that reaching level 100 will not force you to take away difficulty from the game to build up for the final level. i hope that the coming levels will be challenging in their own way!

    please dont make it like the muk thing though where we can just avoid it by type resistance and moving pokemon. please make it so we have to kill the legendary bird. also just a suggestion but you could make it that the bird is level 45 like in the games and just make them insanely fast while having other pokemon swarm around him making it hard to hit instead of just brute power like all the past bosses have been in this game. just a suggestion use it as you please. great job on this game i know in the end you will make good decisions to better this game.

  49. Hey Sam I was actually thinking of leaving the level cap at 90 here, and making this gym battle slightly more level oriented rather than strategy based (like Fussia was). That way, the shadow achievement for it will be difficult. I also think that from 90-100, growing levels should start becoming ridiculous (making 100s rare and an accomplishment. Speaking of which, when the time comes, you should be able to get an achievement for leveling a pokemon from 1-100...just a thought).

    I was wondering though. What ever happened to the shiny quests? Also I'd like to see more challenges!



    As a thought for Mewthree, I was hoping it could actually be programmed to be level 250 or something (make a story about missingno., that would be awesome actually). Mewthree being like Kromrax in Borderlands would be sick.

    As far as a PTD 2 wishlist, I was hoping you'd have items (even if you invented them. For instance, an item which can be dragged on a wild pokemon to slow them down, or an item which increases the shiny rate for the next 20 pokemon or something). I'd like to see more use for pokedollars, and perhaps more ways of making it. With it, I'd like to see the ability to trade pokedollars for pokemon (or possibly items, giving purpose to the inventory?)

  50. surf? articuno will be first in the list!

  51. achievements are just making my old shinies and shadows worthless. I don't like achievements (esp after my shadow abra and oddish got worthless). If there will be reward from an achievement please make the reward a new pokemon...

    ReplyDelete
  52. Achievements are making my pokemons worthless! I hate them.

    ReplyDelete
  53. You should incorporate transferring/linking your accounts once you beat ptd2 or something.like have different profiles on the pokemon center website for 1 &2 then at some point you unlock linking them. That way we only need to remember 1 account and its all together on 1 page. Love the game but level cap way too high.just got my first lvl 60 pokemon ever. Oh and I just thought of this as I'm typing but if we transfer between ptd1&2 there could be events unlocked by certain ptd1 pokemon for additional content either during or after the game. And shiny apricorn? Extremely rare but turn captured pokemon into shinies!!!! And if you still don't know how to let us capture legendaries maybe they only become capturable if you kill all other pokemon, you know like make it one of the levels like route 2 with no candies. I have so many ideas so let me know if you want more...

  55. Co-op please! I'd love to get some of my friends into this game, and Co-op would be the perfect way to do it. You could have a random buddy search mode, as well as a find your friend mode using special codes, like you already do when searching for a trade, to search for your friend's game. The level chosen would have to be unlocked by both players, of course. That way new players could play through the story mode in sequential order with a veteran player. Maybe the difficulty could even be boosted for a mode like this, since it might be possible to have 12 Pokemon on the field in this mode (If the stage has enough room). also, to be fair, the multiplayer menu could work as an open Trade room, so that if one player catches something rare and the other player wants it, you could easily drag it over to the other person's storage and simply gift the Pokemon to your friend.

    I know this would be a TON of work, but if you can pull it off, you'll have successfully surpassed the official Pokemon games. We all enjoy your work and will continue to support you in any way we can! :) Thank you!

  56. WooHoo hurray for coop mode.

    Me and my bro share an account. Would we be able to do coop mode together, or at least with a friend. I like the idea but some people might be jerks and ruin it for everyone (just like Cod zombies)... Or maybe even a live chat, because in coop multiplayer communication is key.

  57. Sam,
    With PTD almost wrapping up, and that feeling of "almost there" upon me, and I am sure you, along with most of the other fans of this game. I once again just want to congratulate you on the success of this game! I remember finding this game right before the Pewter Gym level was done, and have played the game ever since around 2.2ish (rough guess). It is amazing to see how far this game has come and the popularity it has achieved, you certainly have something to be proud of here. With your community oriented game designing, you have done something that I have never seen, and have a nice little fan base because of that. I look forward to PTD2, because that will be a great sequel with the "to-do" list of features to add, meaning the only way to go is up! Thanks again for all your hard work!!

  58. Whoah I've been suggesting a co-op multi-player level for a long time. Either you listened to me individually or had popular demand that I'm unaware of. Either way I'm happy :P Can't wait for PTD2, what gens will be in that?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Also I hope you can have private games or whatever in multiplayer, so you can play with a friend(s). My suggestions for PTD2 are to have a pokemon shop that you can spend your ingame money in for normal pokemon of Level 1, and alot of new items, and I don't know how this would be possible but maybe a mode more like the other games (dueling) and perhaps minigames. And I've noticed some moves on this game are basically pointless, I'm talking about the recoil damage ones, I mean it's okay to use in duels, but on here your pokemon just dies in like 2 seconds, Earthquake the same because it kills your own team :P

  102. Dear Sam,

    In the upcoming PTD2, i would like for you to make it MUCH longer than PTD1.
    i do not want to have to grind for levels every week, but i would also like a challenge.
    (i am a casual PTD player. been playing since 3.0 or so.)
    so for PTD2, i would like more levels and more "baby" steps.
    for example, in the first level of PTD2, i would suggest that we start near MT. Silver (but don't go in), and we progress towards the new town that way.
    (two levels at the route 28/27 and then we move on to tohjo falls.)

    i do not want boss battles that are almost impossible to defeat without grinding on the same level forever.
    (ie, saffron city mewtwo battle)

    anyway, thanks for reading and have fun!
    i am a big fan, and would like to thank you for having the patience to make this game as good as it is! :D

    sincerely,
    a PTD fan

  110. Top 5 things i want for ptd 2
    NO1: Co-op multiplayer, even if its at the end of the game it would be really epic.
    NO2: Breeding & Gender, it would give pokemon like ditto some real use.
    NO3: Slower level caps, It gets hard to keep up with the max level.
    No4: No hacked version, it ruined the game for me, it isn't fun nor do u get a feeling of achievement
    No5: Events, like once every week there would be a special event on a level & u have to beat the conditions to gain the rewards.

    ReplyDelete
  111. will we be able to use our own pokemon and if we can will we be able to level up and gain experience?

    ReplyDelete
  112. Hey Sam, Hi.....Hey, Are you going to add the Pokemon League in PTD? In addition, I can't access the Multiplayer on www.playtowerdefensegames.com Now What?I really want to try the MultiPlayer...
    I cleared my cache,history,cookies,download history, whatever! I just can't access it. Its just a white blank screen.... Please Comment back....Thanks! Also, I hope PTD can go through all 5 regions: Kanto(in progress),Johto(coming),Hoenn,Sinnoh and Unova! It'll be a whole series of PTD. Also, can you add the releasing Pokemon from the Pokemon Center? i really want that!

    ReplyDelete
  113. ok so for ptd 2 .... i think you should figure out a way to trade or transfer pokemon from the first game. that would make it more like the real games and people would be able to keep all the pokemon they worked so hard to get.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Hads=dash=rapidash=ponyta. Am I correct?

    ReplyDelete
  115. i cant wait for the new Ptd version and i really need to level up my pokemon. i need to know whats a good level so that i can beat the rock tunnel.

  116. PTD is coming close to the end...I never thought it'd go by this quickly.

    Seriously, 10 additional levels? Looks like a certain route is about to get burnt out.

    Like the new look for the Pokemon Center.

    There's only a few more Pokemon left. Who could it be? Koffing perhaps?

  117. Hey Sam,

    Could you increase the SnD coin's percentage to maybe, I don't know, like 10% and maybe even 15%?

  125. I think you should add breeding, please o please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  126. I've been thinking, sometimes when I'm trading Pokemon there are several pokemon I'm willing to trade for it. However, if I want to put up all those requests, to have an automatic transaction people have to give me ALL the pokemon I listed. When I see a list of six pokemon it can be a little discouraging to try and make a trade. That trainer might be willing to take any one pokemon on his list, but as far as I can tell he wants all six. So, if there was an "or" function instead of just an "and" function, that could be really cool. You could still have a limit on how many pokemon you can ask for. For example, maybe only three "groups" of pokemon, or six individual ones. This way I could say I want a this and that or a this one and that other thing for my pokemon. It might encourage even more trading and would probably make things easier and speedier for people. Also, maybe a "do not want" function. I don't want a shiny pidgey for my tauros -_-. This could help people from offering relatively valuable shinies to people who neither need nor want them and could help people avoid being rejected because their "good deal" was a deal the person they were trading with didn't want. People might not know I have a bunch of shiny eggecutes or something (I don't), and they think they're being really generous because they're offering a rare shiny like that. With a 'do not want" function people would know not to offer me certain pokemon. Just something to think about.

  128. Sam, I love the plans every week, but you need one important thing: to fuse the trading button and the inventory button in the main menu together to make one big "Pokemon Center" button.

    and the only wish i have for PTD2 is this: BATTLING AGAINST OTHER PLAYERS, pokemon game-style, you know, the turn based thing. we need that! its sounds awesome and i give full credit to whoever said it first.

    so consider plz and have a nice week.

    ReplyDelete
  129. i think we should be able 2 catch mewtwo and some of the newer pokemon from some of the pokemon series should be put in like blazeikin and all the others that would be great i love this game and my friends love it 2

    ReplyDelete
  130. Sam, first off let me just say: Bravo with what you did with the trading center!
    Second, I'm still stuck on Saffron City, so it'll be a while before I'm with y'all!
    Third, I keep getting lame requests that don't involve my wanted PKMN! (No serious offense to you other guys out there!) Do you guys want a shiny Dratini instead? I can buy one. If you want one, I'll take:
    SHINY or SHADOW Mew
    Legendary Dogs(don't matter what type)
    SHINY or SHADOW Victini, and whatever other cool shiny/shadow pokemon you wanna offer! Looking forward to your replies!

    ReplyDelete

    1. There is no shiny victini yet.....

  131. I don't know about anyone else but I have tried trading with people, wait a week and get no answer.
    So is there a way that if a trade has been offered and there is no answer to make it go through. If there are multiple offers it goes to the first offer. Something like this will also stop people from offering pokemon they really are not willing to trade.

  136. Sam, as we all know, there is a level cap problem. There is a way to fix this, though, and it is...
    EXTREMELY hard leveling. I think for every level after 90, the experience needed to level up doubles (if that is to extreme then X 1.5). I hope you consider this idea, and thank you for the game.

    ReplyDelete
  137. Sam, Heres an idea:
    Joey catches Tauros. Unless you have his team planned out, i think this is a great Pokémon for Joey to have.

    Also, Why haven't i been seeing as many shinys?
    I realize they are rare, But i was seeing loads of shinys (By that i mean loads of shiny Exeggcute...) and all ive seen since v5.7.1 came out was a shiny Nidorina.
    Is my luck running out, Or have you changed the Shiny appearance thing?

    ReplyDelete
  140. Hey sam, I'm back! I came up with a few more requests, both for PTD 1 and the upcoming PTD 2. As for raising level caps, I feel they have been rising rather quickly in recent weeks, I think we went from 70 or 72 to 90 over the course of a month or less, which is a lot. As I said, this could be rectified with a new training level. But for future games, do not hesitate to continue with a rigorous level raising agenda. It's easy to train when you go pretty much every day to get your daily prize, you have to make that money so the training comes pretty naturally along with that.

    Today I made a bit of a dumb mistake, I bought a water stone to evolve an eevee I had, but I had already bought one previously and had forgotten about it. I was hoping maybe you could implement a 'sell back' for these cases, maybe for half price to be fair? I have no other pokemon that I'm going to need to evolve with a water stone, unless I get a shiny poliwag or something which isn't exactly high on my priority list.

    For PTD 2, I'm sure you plan on implementing the exp share. I think a great way for this item to work is if it is in your inventory, it gives equal exp to ALL pokemon on the field, regardless of their position or participation. Otherwise making it a holdable item and the holder receiving more exp is still a good idea, I'd rather see the aforementioned approach.

    I'm sure you plan on including the Day Care Center and genders, but don't forget eggs the character can be given! I'd be happy with just Togepi but you could go crazy here and have any NPC give us any good pokemon in an egg.

    I was also thinking (hoping) that you implement a system where pokemon received in trades receive more exp, but I fear that feature would be abused, resulting in mass trades between everyone and accounts owned by the same person to gain the extra edge. I also would like to see pokemon with the ability to disobey without the proper gym badge, as this would deter people from trading high leveled pokemon between accounts and using them to decimate the earlier levels to blow through the game.

    Lastly, and this is just a picky thing: by the time you are ready to go Beta or full release, I hope you double check all your writing for spelling, punctuation, grammar, etc. Even on the main page, under feedback, the 'i' isn't capitalized and there is no punctuation. I love the storyline, it's often very witty and funny, but sometimes errors detract from what's being said. I simply think a final polish of that nature would make the game that much more enjoyable.

    I hope you read these comments as religiously as I imagine and that you take some of these suggestions into consideration!

  143. this is my top 5 wishes for ptd2!

    1: games r gold and silver so u choose which legendary u meet in the game ltr on
    2: JHOTO REIGON/POKEMON
    3: TRNSFER! so we can evolve more pokemon!!!
    4: around the middle of the game or early/midway reshiram (gold) and zekrom (silver) appear and take your friend away and you need to save him like maruto!
    5: this is a big one that people fight bout usually: lvl cap goes up about 2 or 3 lvls per story lvl so that by the end of the game we will be at lvl 100 and people won't complain cuz it will be fast but slow!!!
