Welcome all! Let's get right to it. If you are very into games then this week was a special treat for you. E3 is going on right now! Giving you a look at all the great new games and systems coming out this year and early next year.

E3
I saw all the conferences from Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo and all I have to say that while I wasn't blown away by anything I felt like there was still a lot of solid games shown. What was your favorite thing at e3?

It might be surprising but I actually don't play a lot of video games. I tend to buy the really good ones but I never finish them. I like to get a taste of what the game is like but once I get the taste my drive to finish them goes away. I do find time to finish them eventually but rarely does a game suck me in from start to finish. Some of the games that I recently bought are: Diablo 3, Startcraft 2, Skyrim, Zelda: Skyward Sword, Xenoblade Chronicles. I did finish Zelda, played about 20 hours of Xenoblade and I'm in Act 2 of Diablo 3 (normal difficulty) but Startcraft and Skyrim I have barely played.

Most of my time is dedicated to spending time with the loved ones and making games, blog post, answering emails for you guys! Oh and going to university... So lets talk about what I've been working on!

PTD 2
For PTD2 I wasn't able to get the 1v1 mode finished... :( that's my face! It was actually a bigger task that I had anticipated since there is a lot of changes to the base of the game but I am working on it. I still don't have a solid date for you guys so just hang in there while I put forth my best effort. If I had to guess I would say 2 more weeks. But.. sometimes obstacles are hard to predict so I can't promise you anything.

Some good news is that I've decided that every Mystery Gift pokemon for PTD 2 will be a pokemon that will not be included in PTD or PTD 2 for regular capture. Making the mystery gifts very rare for those of you who are following our progress. So I added a poll for you guys to first decide which generation should the first mystery gift pokemon be from? (Note that future mystery gift can and will be from different generations 3-5) Also in the comments tell me which pokemon and why he should be the first mystery gift!

Small games vs Big games
So besides being the head programmer for HTD, sole developer for PTD and PTD 2, it's also my job to always be thinking about what direction Sam and Dan games should go into. When you think about a path to go into you are also saying that you don't want to follow the paths that you didn't choose. Sometimes choosing to make one game over another game you have to give up or put on hold something else. Life if pretty much about these difficult choices. One of the choices that Dan and I have been thinking about is about the scope of our games. As you know, we are a pretty small team right now. We have about 6 artist but most of them are freelance and they can't put in the same amount of time into working on games. So this impacts the size of our games. So the thought is that instead of thinking of big, huge games that require a lot of human resources (that we can't afford) we would try to think of simple yet deep games that don't require a lot of resources and that our current resources can handle a lot easier. What does this mean for HTD and PTD 2? Nothing! Those game while still pretty big are something that we can manage. Especially PTD 2 since all the graphics are essentially done (since they are taken from the games), HTD will still take its time being made but we have other things in mind that will help us generate resources to make future games for you.

Sadly there is one game that will be put on hold.. Creature Online Universe (aka ANPO) will be put on hold pretty much indefinitely. While this is a game that I very much still want to create, it is currently out of our reach, resource wise. We wish we could drop everything and work on this but we also have bills to pay and food to buy... But there is a bright side!

Because ANPO will be put on hold we will be free to think about smaller projects for you guys to play. Smaller projects means we can get them done sooner which means you get to play them sooner! While working on HTD and PTD 2 we are also working on very small prototypes and pitches for some smaller games. I can't wait to bring them out and show them to you guys soon!

As always let me know what you think! Your opinions and feedback are greatly appreciated and affect the direction that we go in! Thanks again!

    3. Anon 6:24 : We are talking about the FIRST mistery gift and you want legendaries? I think Sam was talking about "normal"(no legend) pokemon like zigzagoon, budew, blitzle etc.

    4. You have to make gallade a mystery gift hes like the ultimate pokemon

      Delete
    5. ralts not gallade so that you can get the whole family and gadevoir if you want

      Delete
    6. Since its for the beginning of the game why not starter pokemon. A starter pokemon from which ever generation emerges victorious from the poll. A starter doesn't seem too powerful. Go Treecko!

      Delete
    7. i think you should put a shiny starter

      Delete
    8. Legendaries should be bought by SnD or vey rare chance to get them, just like in PTD1, so i think a shiny starter, so we'll have the chance to get all the starters, and can you make all the starters Catchable? because in the anime Ash ( the main character ) and the people he meet usually have more than 1 starter, and he cought them just like any other pokemon so i think making it impossible to catch one in the wild is little stupid ( No offense )

      Delete
    9. oshuwatt because he is my fav but dose not have to be first i think a legend

      Delete
    10. I would go with Zangoose. Nice Attack, good moves... And can't be poisons. Plus, he's awesome. OR a starter. For D/P, a Shinx. Early in the DS game, easy to get, and fairly strong. For B/W, Gothita or Solosis, both are good as a 'starter' pokemon not cllassified as an actual 'Starter'.

      Delete
    11. Poochyena~! It's just sooo cute! And it's a puppy, and it's a dark type.

      Delete
    12. 3rd Gen:
      Legendary: Jirachi
      Non-Legendary: Beldum

      4th Gen:
      Legendary: Dialga (Gold Version), Palkia (Silver Version), Giratina (Crystal Version)
      Non-Legendary: Shinx

      5th Gen:
      Legendary: Zekrom (Gold Version), Reshiram (Silver Version)
      Non-Legendary: Rufflet (Gold Version), Vullaby (Silver Version)

      Delete
    13. How about these:
      Gen III: ???
      Gen IV : Munchlax
      Gen V : Zorua

      Not sure about Generation III, but the idea here is, why not have the first Pokemon revealed for whichever generation wins the poll as the first Mystery Gift?

      Delete
    14. A good gift to start PTD2 could be Absol, from 3rd generation

    16. make our first ever ptd 2 mystery gift a ultimate and rare shiny pokemon, to celebrate opening of ptd :)

      Delete
    17. Sam I don't know how many 5th Gen giveaways you can do because there is hardly any 5th Gen overworlded sprites. I don't think you have time to make them, so I recommend not doing many 5th Gen giveaways until B2/W2 come and hopefully there will be more overworlded.

      Delete
    18. I would prefer a Woobat for 5th Gen mainly because they're so cute<3 and strong, although if pokemon still can't evolve with friendship in PTD 2 then I would prefer a Shiny Starter instead.

      Delete
    19. Seeing as this will be early, I don't think a legendary should be put in. Starters, maybe, but normal Pokémon for sure.

      Someone earlier had mentioned Ralts, and personally I think that is a great idea.

      Delete
    20. I gotta say arceus is totally awesome!! so either arceus or celebi :D
      plz!!:)

      Delete
    21. How about a shiny starter that is strong against the type your starter is weak to?

    22. gen 5 is gonna win but GOD i hope it doesnt, gen 5 is bad. dont say im judging without playing, ive played the game ans seen the ffilm, its still terrible. go for gen 3, its a tease for ptd3 and not a legendary, make it non shiny, normal ralts, is a good idea.
      if you must, gen 4 riolu.
      You will, but im begging you not to make it a gen 5, maybe give us options but if its gen5 i simply will not play, all my friends and people i know in game agree with me, dont make gen5 enough said

      Delete
    23. that was me thanks i like ralts because of the possobilities

      Delete
    24. Either Rayquaza or Deoxys because their power is only matched by each other and are useful for those situations where you would normally resort to the hacked versions. Also, it could be any one of Deoxys's four forms.

    25. Rayquaza or one of Deoxys's four forms.

  2. I have a few things to say:

    1. Are there any SnD games for the App Store, and if not, when do you guys think they'll arrive there.

    2.For Mystery Gift, I think it should be an alien pokemon(you know 'cause it's called "Johto's Shadow)

    1. good for this occasion cause this would be the second (due to magneton) steel type in ptd
      Oh yeah, and lucario is awesome!

      Delete
    2. Defiantly Lucario would be sooooo awesome, I reckon it should actually be Riolu so u could get him in the pokedex. Would swear but probably get caught. I also thing gible would be awesome cause it evolves into garchomp.

      Delete
    3. Then he should put Riolu so we can evolve it to Lucario

      Delete
  6. No Legendary Pokemon and no starters, or if you do end up doing them, make them one offs like you did with the shiny geodude. This is because they are rare, and if you put them in now, and everyone gets tons of them, then it will be very common and have no value if you decide to do more games through all the Gens. I think that Shinx, Luxio, and Luxray should be the first Mystery Gifts as they are one of the few pokemon that can actually use physical electric attacks with stab and use them effectively. The other one that I want is The Gen 4 and 5 Fossils. This would be Cranidos, Sheildon, Tirtouga, and Archen. These are very cool pokemon that should be included, but should be exclusive to one version, like Cranidos and Archen, the two agressive ones, be in Gold, while Shieldon and Tirtouga be in Silver.

  7. tepig because there are not many fire types in johto and he is also a fighting type because there are not many new fighting types probally only 1

  8. Something happened in my game where I tried to save after defeatiing the Vermillion Gym level and there was an error. When I tried signing back in and playing again, my game file was lost and was replaced with someone elses. I wasn't in the Pokemon Center while playing or anything. Everything was fine up until I tried saving it. Is there any way I can recover my levels and pokemon?

  9. ok 3 things 1.wat 2 more weeks 2.there should be a mystery gift of free snd coins and3.make there be legendaries from passed genarations thanks

    ReplyDelete
  10. Slakoth would be pretty awesome for the first one! As for future ones I would like to see manaphy or riolu but you get the egg and have to hatch it. This of course assumong breeding will be implemented ;)

  11. a SPIRITOMB is a diferent pokemon... and i remember that it dont have debilities, so it can be a good help during the game (: sorry for my bad english XD

  12. Deino cuz its awesome and it will be rarer due to how far gen 5 is

    ReplyDelete
  13. Hi Sam! There are still some things i miss in PTD1. I did wait till ist finished to see if you take care of em before spamming you ;)

    So first of: The trade Center. If you have much Pokemon, the screen gets messed up and u can hardly see anything. Small thing, but lowering the fun alot. But i dont know how hard and how much work it would be to take care of it. So when i say small thing, i mean i can life with it if you cant fix that.

    Secound: Are you still planing to give a reward for finshing the Dex?

    3rd: (and this includes PTD2 also) Please!!! No more Mystery gifts :( not one Pokemon that were a gift is worth anything...just like the Achievement ones.

    4th: Will you think of some new Achievements? The first few where very nice and kinda challanging..but most off all...pure fun. Not like the later: "Defeat that with Pokes under lvl XX". especially the lvl with the Shiny Geadudes did "Rock" =D

    Thats all so far =)
    Bye and keep on the good work!

  14. 6th and it should be lotad/seedot

    ReplyDelete
  15. I honestly think that Keckleon would be a great mystery gift item because it's a single form family, and it probably won't have any future potential as a boss, so it wouldn't make plot issues

    ReplyDelete
  16. Quick questions about PTD 2 :D

    1. Will we have team mates who get the other starter pokemon that we didn't choose? Like In the manga, There was Red, Green, and Blue.

    2. If we don't get THOSE teammates ^^ then can we get a trainer like Joey, but his back story is that he's Joey's younger cousin?

    3. Will you be in this game like the last on at team rockets base?

    ReplyDelete
  17. Deoxys and all his forms

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh and I think Beheeyem, Umbreon, Or Espeon

  19. it should be a beldum or jirachi :D

  21. I honestly don't think that having a Legendary Pokemon as the first mystery gift is a good idea. I do however, think it should be Zorua. This is because he would be the first ever Dark-Type Pokemon ever introduced in PTD. He would also make a great companion because of his amazing Attack Stat. I have been playing PTD ever since V.3 and I think that Zorua would be a great PTD Mystery gift.

    ReplyDelete
  22. By the way, Sam is not only asking for which Pokemon should be Mystery Gift but also WHY.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hi Sam, 1 suggestion: put in game the evolutions of pokemon's PTD 1 (Magnezone, Rhyperior, Porygon 2 & Z, Licklicki, Tangrowth, Glaceon, Leafeon...) & next mistery gift a unova pokemon (Meloetta, Zorua or Axew) ;)

    ReplyDelete
  24. 1st (no one else has said i so I'mclaiming it!). I think if it's 5th gen, it should be Genesect, 4th gen, Shaymin (Sky or Land form), and finally for 3rd gen, Deoxys (any form).

    Can't wait, and good luck Sam!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Maybe it should be a item that evolves a pokemon we already have.
    Like a Upgrade for Porygon, Protector for Rhydon, Metal Coat for Scyther, anything like that.
    Other then that...Beldum/Riolu would be nice :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. No legendarys or else the game wouldnt be fun. make it Shadow Evee

    ReplyDelete
  27. zigzagoon, shinx or elgyem.

    Also, I have some questions:
    1.-If MG pkmn wont be catchable, how will we get their shiny forms? Shiny elgyem must be in this game unless you dont want your soul anymore lol.
    2.-Will you do something so we cant use a mistery gift code 4,100,236,873,364,798,254,131,658,474,128,927 times? maybe 6 per profile or something

    1. Sorry that I'm answering this even though I'm not Sam.
      For your second request Sam said even if he does that people can still make a bunch of accounts and use the mystery gift code 4,100,236,873,364,798,254,131,658,474,128,927 times. By the way, I agree with you on your first request.
      I WANT MY SHINY BELDUM/SHINX/ZORUA/RUFFLET!!!

      Delete
  28. It shouldn't be something rare from the start, either common or uncommon in their respective generations. I feel that for generation 3, Nincada would be a good pokemon to work with, and incorporating it's double evolution would be interesting. For generation 4, Skorupi would be nice as a starting poison/bug without getting evolving too early on into a powerful poison/dark. For generation 5, Larvesta or Deino would be great to get early on because they evolve so late.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Axew or Sandile, really the only 2 Pokemon I liked from gen 5 since it looks like it'll be the winner

This is because they are rare, and if you put them in now, and everyone gets tons of them, then it will be very common and have no value." What? Thats the purpose of the Mystery Gifts, the people who are unlucky & miss the rare ones in the beginning will not have them. Its a one time thing, later on then it will become truly rare.

    1. Although I agree that legendaries should be given out early for the purpose of rarity, you have to realize that they'd ruin the game this early. You fight the first gym with Groudon, Giratina, and Reshiram, and never catch wild pokemon because you have a full legendary party. Yes they should be given out early, but maybe not until 2 or 3 different mystery gift pokemon make an appearance.

  37. Make the first mystery gift Tynamo! Electric type + evitate (when you add that) = WIN ~ Jonathan K.

  38. I think it should be legend to start right off the bat. you could put black kyurem and white kyurem. you would need the overworld sprite. here are some links to them

    http://browse.deviantart.com/?qh=&section=&q=black+kyurem+overworld+sprite#/d4s80tg for black kyurem and

    ReplyDelete
  45. Whats wrong with you people? You do understand if you start off with legendaries, then that just gives those pokemon no storyline what so ever in the upcoming PTD games right? And if you get a starter, then you'll be bored of the next PTD game. Theirs a reason why its called a "starter" its something you get as a noob, you can either make it better, or never use it. Now a pokemon that would be good for a mystery gift for PTD 2 is Eevee. Its impossible to catch in the Johto region, and Bill gives you only 1. So it would be a perfect first Mystery Gift, not only does it have 3 evolutions, but now its has 2 extra evo's this Gen. A good adition to the team for a start.

  48. Wheres the gen 2 option. I personally think that you shouldn't release pokemon before you get to their respective generation. I think since gen 2 isn't even released officially yet, you should stick to pokemon from that generation. After all if you do release pokemon from future gens, you might not be able to release that pokemon the same way when you actually need it in the game's 3rd/4/5th sequel. Also doing this will cause a lot of confusion as to new players who have missed this event. It will make the pokemon very valuable and some who have missed this event will pay big time, even legendaries for this one probably common pokemon that they will be able to get a few sequels away and once they find out they can get it then, they will rage that they traded their one-of-a-kind for a pokemon that is almost worthless unless it's shiny. What I think is that you should release new pokemon forms, such as shiny and shadow, and use those as pokemon only available via mystery gift or some other form such as daily code and SnD Coins. By doing so, you will be able to maintain the generation gaps for a while and you can keep us occupied with another form of collectibles.

    I know this is very boring to read, but please consider this. ~DarkRayquaza

    1. If I release gen 2 pokemon then there won't be anything to catch on this game. I can't guarantee that there will be ptd 3 and so on so putting these guys in at least secures that you will see them.

      Delete
    2. I actually agree with DarkRayquaza, just make then 2nd gen but make them shiny or shadow or whatever, that's WAY better than adding fifth or fourth or third gen pokemon (I can live with 3rd gen, but I'm hoping there WILL be a PTD 3, so adding 3rd gen would be strange since people will be getting them anyway in PTD 3, unless you make these (the mystery gift pokemon) shiny or shadow. And I just don't like the fifth (and fourth, although these are not as bad as the fifth gen) gen pokemon, like many other pokemon fans, who have been fans from the beginning of pokemon, not like those people who just found out about pokemon and PTD who like the fifth gen pokemon).

      Delete
    3. Thank god i'm not the only one who think the same thing, thank you people.
      Sam why you want to add next generation pokemons??? I like your idea DarkRayquaza and i agree completely, i don't like 5th generation that's why i stoped pokemon but Sam's PTD 1 & 2 where a place without 5th generation pokemon and with new moves, at least that's what i thought :(

  50. I think sam that it would be good to put a Pokemon that has impacted in the Pokemon series to be a Pokemon ash as snivy oshawoth tepig zorua or ralts. i would say that you must put a Pokemon not only great but one that will help to defeat the leaders of gym and the other coaches. I hope you SERVED MY OPINION AND I HOPE THAT IT WILL SOON PLAY PTD2

    ReplyDelete
  51. i dont care which generation you pick but METAGROSS METAGROSS METAEFFINGROSS needs to be one of thoe choices! Psychic/Steel Type Pseudo-legendary. Metagross has the highest Attack stat of any Steel-type AND he looks super badass.

    ALSO

    Tyranitar too because hes a dinosaur and i like dinosaurs.. but not as much as metagross :)

  54. i say it should be pawniard, because he is dark and steel type which are new types introduced in gen. 2 and also he could help us out by giving us early diversity in our team without adding the insane stats of a legendary, making it perfectly balanced.

  56. if you have too give us a legendary from gen. 5 due to popular demand because it looks like thats whats gonna win, will you make it a deino because it doesnt really have "legendary" stats until it becomes hydreigon which will take a while especially if you increase the level cap like you did for ptd 1.

  60. I recommend you completely to finish Xenoblade. The directions the story take, and especially towards the end, is beyond amazing. Also, since that you are 20 hours in the game, I know that this game has so much more to show you!

  61. chimchar or tepig

  62. please Sam I beg you! don't ruin this game by adding any of the crappy fifth gen pokemon! I find the pokemon from the fifth (and most of the fourth, although these are not THAT bad) hardly pokemon anymore! These are just a shame for all the other generations and when you added victini to PTD I was so damn disappointed by that because I think that just ruins the quality of the game (PTD is still one of the most awesome online games, but still). so PLEASE DON'T ADD ANY FIFTH GEN POKEMON TO ANY OF THE PTD'S (unless it is a game about the fifth generation, but I hope you aren't going to do that).

    2. completely agree. gen 5 is dumb useless and just generaly doesnt deserve to be called pokemon
      their rip offs so just, at the very least, give us and option of gen 3 4 and 5 to the list,
      there are just WAY TO MANY FRIKIN SINNOH/UNOVA NOOBS WHO ARE ABOUT 8 YEARS OLD AND PLAY HACKED COS THEIR LAME so just dont do it ill hate the game if you do
      Rant over

  63. I think a you should put a Pokemon that will help very little for the first mystery gift so that it is hard to beat the game. This will help keep people occupied while you're working on other games.I play Pokemon white but it is getting boring(i finished the game half a year ago.):)

  64. 3rd should be Salamence!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    4th defianately lucario!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    5th should be um kyurem!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I would really love it if the first mystery gift Pokémon was Heatmor because Heatmor is my favourite Pokémon and he/she looks really cool (in my opinion) but is not too strong so he/she will not over power the weaker Pokémon at the start. Also, there are not many fire type Pokémon to pick from.
    It would really mean a lot to me if Heatmor was chosen but some people would still say why pick my idea well for those people I have got my answer. Well I have donated quite a bit of money on SnD coins, played the game a long time and, finally, given feedback about the game to help Sam.

  66. You could also use unknowns for mysterygifts. Then when you have collected them all, you will be able to catch entei. For the people who miss one, they will need to trade it with other trainers

    ReplyDelete
  67. Shiny Taillow, as shiny Pidgey was the first ever mystery code. It would be a good sequence.

    ReplyDelete
  68. legendary: darkrai
    normal:klink

  69. Hey Sam now I'm very bored... I want to start over the game with by shinies I've collected, but it's meaningless to play again with all lvl 90+ pokemon. So could you please add an option in the trading centre to allow us to reset the lvl of a pokemon to lvl 1? This way I can start over the game with my shinies while taking the challenge! Thanks

  70. Why you doing this Sam :( please don't add pokemon from other generation(except 1-2). That's so disappointing, i don't have vote yet, but i'm sure we will get a pokemon from 5 generation, i feel angry and i can't do anything :(

    BTW you said you will add all mystery gift avatars, please don't lie to us and do what you said :(

    ReplyDelete
  71. I Hope That A Legendary Can Be The First Because They're Hard Too Get With SnD Coins But We Should All Have A Shot At Getting A Legendary Pokemon I Hope Its Kyurem Or Reshirem Or Zekrom

    ReplyDelete
  72. 3rd gen: Spoink
    4th gen: Gible
    5th gen: Zorua

    those are very awesome pokemon. to all the people who keep asking for legends. i dont think Sam will give legends for the first mystery gift because it would make PTD 2 way to easy

    ReplyDelete
  73. hi Sam,

    Doesn't care how long it take till PTD2 is finally finished, i hope you can finish it :)

    I really like PTD and i hope PTD2 too

    Keep going

  74. Tropius ! Tropius ! Tropius ! that would be a great mystery gift

    ReplyDelete
  75. It should be a shiny pokemon for sure because that means that even when that pokemon does come out it will still be special.

    I think the pokemon should be one of these cranidos, skorupi, drifloon, or gible

    ReplyDelete
  76. Sam-

    Are you making Gold, Silver, AND Crystal Version?

    ReplyDelete
  77. Treeko! Please sam it's the smallest of my 3rd fav sceptile

    ReplyDelete
  78. What gives. Loads of Sinnoh and Unova newbies are here commenting. I watched pokemon since Kanto and I vote gen 3. If it wasn't in a region here's my order. Kanto, Johto , Hoenn , Unova , Sinnoh.
    1,2,3,5,4

    ReplyDelete
  79. 3 Random Starters! Make 3 Codes, 1 for each region beyond Johto, & after put in the code, choose which starter! Usable anytime! :)

    P.S It's okay if 1v1 is delayed!

  81. zorark whod be perfect

    ReplyDelete
  82. genoration 3:Groudon/Kyogre
    genoration 4:Arceus
    genoration 5:Zoura

    If gen 3 I want Groudon/Kyogre because you all ready have the images for them.
    If gen 4 I want Arceus cause he's so powfull (He can become any type with the use of a plate) and I like making pepole mad because everyone would want one and can you make it where we can only have 2 (that's how many you can have in the game).
    If gen 5 I want Zoura because of it evolution Zourawack is the MIRRAGE Pokemon and that sound so cool. If you other commenters don't like my Suggsions I will make Arceus rain DOOM down apoun you (haters going to hate)
    ZIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  83. 5th generation: axew or sandile or maybepidove

    ReplyDelete
  84. I think the mystery gift pokemon,no matter who wins,should be the dragon type of that game, such as bagon,deino,gible,ect.

    ReplyDelete
  85. i think you could do a 1 time starter normal not shiny one week to the starter you choose

    ReplyDelete
  86. excadrill,snivy,pansear or oshawot
    excadrill-becouse he looks awesome,
    snivy-cool grass type,
    pansear-best of the monkey brothers, and
    oshawot-he is cute powerfull and AWESOME!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  87. Please can you add Deerling for me? And like all its 4 seasons?
    I really love deerling because its so cute and it is just cool to have a pokemon that can change appearance according to the seasons! :)
    Thank you

    ReplyDelete
  88. I think that Riolu from Generation 4 should be the first Mystery gift IN THE FORM OF AN EGG because in Generation 4, the Riolu you get in the game is an egg, and it evolves with happiness.I think you should offer all Mystery gift Pokemon in the form of an egg. It would be fun not knowing what the Mystery gift Pokemon is until I hatch it! It could really showcase the new egg-hatching and happiness mechanics.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Ok lets see i say 3rd generation should be Rayquaza deffinetly. 4th gen should be mespirit/azelf/uxie and 5th gen i say as zoroark/zorua -Articuno master

    ReplyDelete
  90. Ive been thinking sam ptd was huge and a great succes i bought snds once anyways there was a pokemon i wouldve been really happy to see in ptd but ptd is done now for ptd 2 can you please make it so we nin hackers can get a celebi?

    ReplyDelete
  91. 3:kyogre/groudon/rayquaza/deoxys
    4:giratina/arceus/palkia/dialga
    5:kyurem/zoroark/reshiram/zekrom

    I WANT THEM BECAUSE THEY ARE ALL COOL AND STRONG POKEMON!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Sam I have a list of pokemon for mystery gift:
    Ruby and Saphire: Latios/Latias. Since PTD2 looks breath-taking, I think it will be like a nice little adjustment to make it better.Plus it was included in HeartGold and SoulSilver.
    Diamond and Pearl: I'd probably say the amazing Gible. I mean come on there aren't much dragon-types in Gold and Silver.
    Black and White: Honestly PUT RESHIRAM,ZEKROM,AND KYUREM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THOSE DESERVE TO BE ALLOWED IN THE EPICNESS OF PTD2!Thanks for taking time and looking at my opinions Sam.

    ReplyDelete
  93. You may as well start with Kyogre and Groudon since they were in the last games. You may want to do Celebi as well, shadow, because even the regular version of Celebi probably won't be in until late game.

    ReplyDelete
  94. Zoroark brought the whole 5th generation. He should be the first.

    ReplyDelete
  95. ummm sam can you make a glitch pokemon like like shadow the hedegehog???? it would be cool and it could be secret/mystery gift. P.S i know shadow is from sonic,i judt think it would be cool. :)

    ReplyDelete
  96. if gen. 3 wins, use jirachi. if gen. 4 wins, use rotom. if gen 5 wins, use victini or minccino.

    ReplyDelete
  97. for sure this is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    ReplyDelete
  98. can you wall like in the games through a map?

    ReplyDelete
  99. If it's generation 3(somewhat likely from the poll I'm currently looking at), I hope it's a legendary or a pseudo-legendary (Bagon or Beldum).
    If it's generation 4(unlikely from current results), I hope it's the creator trio of Sinnoh or Arceus. If it's a non-legendary then I would like to see a Snover. Why do you ask? Because of Snow Warning! A good hail kills all(Blizzard with perfect accuracy maybe?)! Also it evolves by leveling up not by happiness(sorry Riolu)!
    For G5 (most likely by the results I see), I would like to see Deino or Zorua.
    I'm speaking for the majority of Pokéfans and PTD fans.
    Though no one has brought up Snover yet!

    ReplyDelete
  100. darn u guys who like the new black and white series! i know its fun and all, but i like luxray. lol, well, the new mystery pokemon should be zorua or zoruark

    ReplyDelete
  101. I suggest swablu or toghekiss or trapinch

    ReplyDelete
  102. i would say one of the most anoyying that almost everyone hates (bidoof) but i'll go with beldum for gen 2, riolu gen 4 and gen 5 litwick

    ReplyDelete
  103. i say that at first it is a starter from the other generations but they are the starters weaker than the one you chose so you would have to use all the profiles to get them

    ReplyDelete
  104. I want Oshawott because it is my favorite Pokemon! Thanks for everything you've done Sam :D

    ReplyDelete
  105. SHINY DRATINI CALLED IT OHHHHHHHHHHH
