Working
Work, work, work! That is what we are all about right now here at Sam and Dan Games. Let us look at what everybody is working on!

First the artist, since all the graphics in Pokemon Tower Defense are taken from the actual games we don't really need artist for PTD2, I mean admit it you love my attack graphics! So all of them are working on Hero Tower Defense. Kevin, our first artist, made a great blog post about what the artist have been making this past month. Check it out here. Not in the blog is the work that Joel has done. Joel while working on the PTD Fan film and his other projects was able to complete some weapon designs and a weapon model. Dan will also be lending his hand at helping with the 3D models.

Second the programmers. Yes there is more than one! I've been talking to him for a long time now about joining us and now he is finally ready. I would like to welcome Jonathan to the team. He will be helping with the programming starting off with some new game prototypes that I will talk about down below. I'm also a programmer, I'm working on HTD, PTD2, and also some prototypes.

Lastly the designers. Dan as you might know is in charge of designing and managing HTD, with feedback from the team. He is also in charge of the HTD blog post and answering SnD Coin orders. I'm in charge of PTD, PTD 2, and the weekly progress blog. Dan and I work together to figure out what we should focus on and which paths should we take as a company.

PTD 2 Improvements
Believe it or not I can't just copy and paste all the code from PTD to PTD 2! A lot of it needs to be refined and some critical parts drastically changed. This is why it has taken so long for the 1v1 mode to come out. I'm here to tell you about some of the improvements that I have been able to make to PTD that I hope you will enjoy. So here we go.

1. You can now swap tower positions by dropping a tower in the other tower's spot.
2. Attack's cooldown won't reset if you change the move, return the pokemon or move a tower from its spot.
3. Damage text will now be white and have a dark background behind it to make it easier to read the text. Also all types of damage will have the same color. Super effective damage will be larger, and ineffective damage will be smaller font. Also critical damage will show up as slightly bigger and in a yellow color. So that its easier to see when you get a critical hit or when somebody critically hits you.
4. When you change the size of the map it will now center itself. (See HTD's map)
5. You can't drag the map so that it will be off screen. (See HTD's map)
6. Many other improvements to the level code.

When you play PTD2 you will notice a bunch of small changes to almost every area in the game. I hope you guys will enjoy them when the time comes. (I'm still working on it!)

Small Games
So last week I talked about small games. Not sure if I mentioned it before but Dan and I are about big complex ideas. We like games with a lot of depth. I tend to go for the more easy to pick up and hard to master, and he tend to go for the hardcore from the start games. A good example would be my love for the Super Smash Bros series and Dan's love for the Street Fighter series. The problem is we don't have the money to make the big complex games, and even something of medium size (like HTD) will take us a good long while to make. So it is with this in mind that we want to produce some smaller but fun games for you guys to play. Three prototypes we are looking at are: A beat em up game designed by Kevin. A barrel jumping game (like the original donkey kong) inspired by the a concept from Joel. A simple RPG designed by me inspired by the 3DS RPG Find Mii. These will be fun games that will be connected in an interesting way that I'm not ready to reveal at this time.

Pick your first Mystery Gift!
So the 5th Generation of pokemon won for the first poll and you guys gave a lot of great comment as to who you wanted from different generations. I gathered up all the names and I picked the top 3 plus I added my own suggestion (Sandile) to the poll. Make your pick!

That's all I have for you this week, thanks for the support and as always let me know what you think!

  3. Please axew..... Sam i follow you on twitter i love your website and games :) keep it going man!

  4. :( people are only voting zorua cause he was so famous in the origanal ds game be he only evolves once axew evolves twice so pick axew ftw!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. But Deino would be your best bet because deino is a dark/dragon axew is a dragon type and zorua is a dark type

      Delete
    2. Yah the dragons evolve twice, but they also evolve at higher levels. And of course it's more famous, Zorua/Zoroark had a movie made around them.

      Delete
  5. 10th??? All the new features sound awesome. If you have time/ if its doable, can you add a retry level button? So when you click menu it will be there and it sends you right back to the start of the level without changing your party! And maybe have it as an option after you beat the level (A retry button and then the end button)

    Go Deino!!!

  9. Hey Sam, I had a suggestion for PTD 2. I know almost everyone has asked for an auto leveler and I was wondering if you had put any thought into making the money it costs to level up a Pokemon exponential? So instead of every time you level up costing 5 watts (pokedollars) making it increase every level, so a level 5 Pokemon may cost 5 watts to level, but once it gets to level 50 have it cost 5000, for a rough example. I suggest this because I think with adding more items, TMs, and daily gifts, it would make the game a little more strategical with having to balance money on top of the other features that are already in use, and would prevent the heaps of coins I have aquired, legitimately I might add, which makes it so I can buy anything I want with no worry of ever running out. Good luck moving forward, I'm waiting patiently for the release. :)

    1. Yeah I def want to make money serve more of a purpose this time around. With more items and such like you described. In 1v1 money will have that strategic element that you mentioned.

    What about the title screen contest? Three weeks ago, you said you'd pick the best ones and have us vote on them in three weeks.

    As far as the first Mystery Gift, I'm kinda annoyed that Trubbish isn't a choice (seriously, is that not the cutest damn thing you ever saw?), but I picked Zorua.

    1. I haven't forgotten about the Contest but there is so much going on that I couldn't fit it in.

  12. NO!!! CHOOSE DIENO!!! zorua isnt very powerful and hydregon is dark type anyway and stronger than zoroark!!! plus hydregon is awesome and dragon type!!!

    2. its also the closest thing to a legend as you can get tied with salemence TYRANITAR!! metagross garchomp and dragonite

      Delete
    3. But what zorou has no other pokemon has is the ability illusion

      Delete
    4. Zorua evolves into Zoroark at a lower level than what it takes to get the new final dragon forms. Either way, the odds of it winning were up from the very beginning because they've made a movie centering around it and it was hyped more than any other of the choices.

      Delete
    5. I think the same way.

      Delete
  13. aww poor sam. his own pokemon choice in the poll (sandile) is in dead last by a long shot... :P

    1. lol no problem I like some of the other ones too

      Delete
    2. Yeah, Sandile's wicked awesome.

    3. Ff Axew wasnt there, I would have voted sandile. Very good pokemon and adds a lot to any team, but dragon pokemon are always favorites of mine

      Delete
    4. Sam will just be like "screw you! i pick the pokemon i want" xD

      Delete
  14. Awex, Axew, Axew, Awew! COME ON GUYS LEAD THE AXEW REBELLION. Lets face it, Hydregion is OverPowered, Sandile is also a good choice, but Zoura, Seriously? COME ON AXEWINATORS!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. DOESN'T ZORUA EVOLVE INTO ZOROARK.

      Delete
    2. I agree with you, Zoura would not be a good mystery gift. It seems like they are giving a rare pokemon too fast. Sandile, Deino, and Axew are all good choices. I personally picked Sandile, because I don't want to be playing the first level 500 times to evolve my Axew/Deino.
      Even if all sandile, axew, and Deino voters choose axew, it won't be enough to beat the eight year olds who think that all other pokemon suck if they are not amazing (Magikarp FTW)

      Delete
    3. i totally agree

      Delete
    4. I too voted Axew. I actually like all three Pokemon on there except Zoura. I hope it doesn't win, but it seems to have an abundance of fanboys, much like Lucario.

      Delete
    5. That's what happens when there's a movie made that revolves around that specific Pokemon. I could go for any of them, but I voted Zorua because I want a Dark type and not one that becomes freakishly overpowered. And face it, if this was Gen. 4 Pokemon, we know Riolu would be beating Gible, you can blame the movies for the large amount of fans of some Pokemon.

      Delete
    6. I HATE ZORUA! All of the other choices are decent, but personally I would rather have Tirtouga or Archen! Johto lacks a good fossil, and they aren't completely overpowered! But I'm going to probably vote for Sandile!

      Delete
    7. Are you trying to say only boys play this game? i think Zorua is cute, that's why i voted for him.

      Delete
  15. will we be able to battle like in the anime, one move at a time?

    ReplyDelete
  16. I'm psyched. just curious, how will the happiness mechanics work?

    ReplyDelete
  17. tell me something, have the Elekid in the game?

    ReplyDelete
  18. I haven't finalized it or anything but what I'm thinking now is that you have to use that pokemon a lot in levels to raise its happiness. Possibly using items on them also.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Can u use items as well?

      Delete
    2. Missingno. MasterJune 13, 2012 at 7:14 PM

      It won't need to level up more than once, though, right? My Chansey are already at level 99.

      Delete
    3. If you have played Pokemon Colosseum(why else would you have shadow pokemon) you know you massage your pokemon with scents in order to purify your pokemon. Would you consider doing this but instead to raise happiness? P.S. It is the best pokemon RPG.

  25. Oh well. I kinda wanted Gen.3 & 4 for the Ralts family. Gallade FTW. Also kinda like Deino, Zweilous, and Hydreigon. But ZORUA is cool. :)

  26. hey sam is there auto leveling in ptd2?

    ReplyDelete
  27. pokes who evolve more are technically stronger than those who evolve once.therefore the best choices are axew n deino.haxorus has 2 weaknesses n hydreigon has 4 therefore axew is the best choice just sayin . i vote deino hydreigon looks cool.

  28. #1/4/5 - awesome :D
    #2 - that nerfs helping hand if I want to constantly move pokemon around... nooooooo ;_;

    ReplyDelete
  29. Please answer these Questions Sam?

    1. Will we have team mates who get the other starter pokemon that we didn't choose? Like In the manga, There was Red who had Bulbasaur, Green who had Squirtle, and Blue who had Charmander. Or in Johto, Gold who had Cyndiquil, Silver who had Totodile, and Crystal who had Chikorita.

    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
  30. HEY SAM, WHEN IS AVATAR CHAT CHANGING?

  31. Sam, will there be separate Pokémon Centers for PTD and PTD 2? And will you SnD Coins from PTD/PTD 2 be on each account? Good Luck on PTD 2!

    1. Even if all the people who voted for Deino and Axew merged, Zorua would still be winning, it has over 50% of the votes, and there's also a decent chunk of them for Sandile.

    2. DEINO!!! :D

  33. sam you should have placed others, for all except Zorua you have to do the sprites and think deino hidreygon and better and stronger because of all these developments, and use my other suggestion please todos.por deino want a mistery gift in seconds, or an axew

  41. Hi Sam, love the game! But listen, something has always bugged me, it's the Mystery Gift. We've always known what it would be before we got it, but doesn't that defeat the point of it being a mystery? Why not start making it an actual suprise, i.e we only learn what it is once we figure out the code and type it in to receive the gift? Just a thought. Anyway, great work as always!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That was my idea! It should be an egg so that Sam can show off the new egg-hatching mechanics and satisfy the "Mystery" in mystery gift!

    1. Lugia is going to be catchable in game, why would it be a mystery gift?

    2. Idiot, that's a 2nd generation pokemon, a legendary one. The point of the game is to get it near the end like the birds where in ptd. And Dark Lugia should be the main antogonist in ptd2. Just sayin. Sincerely raymondrennock@yahoo.com

    1. Sandile didn't even have a chance, I would've voted Axew, but there has yet to be a dark type in the game but there has been a dragon type. And Deino is way too overpowered when it's fully evolved, it would be stupid to let people get that so early.

      Delete
  50. Hi Sam, glad to see you're making progress, though I did have a few questions. First, are you going to adjust Baton Pass so that it affects moves like Aqua Ring, Ingrain, and Substitute? I know you talked about it back when Vaporeon first became available, but said you didn't have time to implement it. Speaking of Vaporeon, will Eevee be obtainable in PTD 2? I just want to know if I need to catch 5 shiny Eevees here in order to get all the shiny Eeveelutions (Sadly, getting every shiny is all I have left to do in PTD, so I just want to know if I only need to get 3 or wait the countless hours to get 5). Thank you!

    ReplyDelete
  51. so what if Hydreigon is overpowered? wouldn't that be something you WANT in the game? Zorua is a wimp. And Axew and his evolutionary line still are no where near as powerful as Hydreigon.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You do realize your argument is "add the overpowered stuff at the beginning so we can use it everywhere" right? I'm surprised it wasn't voted for, but I'm glad it wasn't. Sandile sadly stands no chance and I wanted a dark type, so that leaves Zorua as the only balanced choice.

      Delete
    2. with u all the way. deino is awesome(along with hydreigon)

      Delete
  52. Really? Axew or Deino are really good choices, but I don't understand why Zorua is in such a huge lead. It's not that great of a pokemon.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I voted Zorua because I want a dark type that isn't overpowered. Poor Axew isn't a dark type so it wasn't a choice, and Sandile is so far behind there really wouldn't be a point in voting for it.

      Delete
  53. I am just saying this as I think Axew and Sandile should be the two choices, for a few reasons. Zorua and Zoroark are only good with their abilities, while Deino should only be included later in the game, or only if there is a level Cap, just so that way you can not get a Hydreigon, one of the Psuedo-Legendary Pokemon. Just to clarify, a Psuedo-Legendary has base stats over 600, has two types, and three evolutions. So unless Sam decides to put in the ability, and there is a Multiplayer mode, then Zorua and Zoroark will be desperately underpowered. I think that Deino though should be if there is a Level Cap, though Axew would be better if there is not one.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. exactly but you dont want to get deino late in the game and have to level it all the way to the 60s for it to evolve into hydeigon which would waste time and be a hassle

    ReplyDelete
  56. I think that IF you included the Unknown as an important element in this game (which I'm a huge fan of), that the Ruins of Alphs should perhaps change depending on the items/ Pokemon you have/use like in Gold, Silver, and Crystal, when you used escape route or, used flash or had Ho-oh it unlocked items and a hidden message from the Unknown, maybe incorporating something like that into this game would be fun for you. I do know that whether or not you try it this game will be loads of fun, you are very talented and I've been supporting you since PTD was on the Android Market and will continue supporting you, Thanks for your dedication to us, your fans!
    Sincerely,

  65. Sam hate ta say it but putting Zorua in the mystery poll Was A BAD MOVE

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. This is basically as bad a move as if he would've put Riolu as a chose. It would be the winner hands down. After this, the crazily overpowered dragons will win, then the starters if they wind up being a choice, ect. ect.

      Delete
  66. I actually like sandile... but I didn't vote for him because he is in dead last.. so I ended up voting for the common sense winner.. zorua

    ReplyDelete
  67. Seriously Sam can't you have all 4 of them to be mystery gifts?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Not a bad idea but Sam y didn't u add the unobserved starters to the list instead of the 2 dragons and the sandile. PS I love zoroark dark type r the best type ever besides ghost types

  69. Axew+evolutions are hands down way better of a pokemon than zorua.... if it wasnt rare it wouldnt be winning...

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. You also forget the you can get the final form of Zorua much faster than the final form of Axew, and that's probably a big part of it.

  70. an idea: have way to buy candy (with pokedollars and clear) to serve as bait for certain Pokemon, which are not on the map

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hey sam i voted 4 sandile, good choice who doesnt love a chubby little cute crocadile! ps can the second mystery gift be BAGON! I LOVE SALAMENCE, PS MY PROFILE IS SALAMENCE413

    ReplyDelete
  72. Sam i think , the first mystery gift can be shiny or shadow ? !!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. THEN IT'S INCREDIBLY CHEAP BECAUSE ZORUA IS CHEAP AND IF PEOPLE GET A SHINY VERSION IT'S OVERKILL!

      Delete
  73. Sam,you should make it so that if for example you can only level up to level 50 before the pokemon won't obey you,you should make it so that they won't level up after they reach level 50.

    ReplyDelete
  74. I think that there are far to many little kids voting on this first 5th gen wins then the lames pokemon from 5th gen is going to win);

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think there aren't enough people who have played the original Pokemon games that still accept the 5th gen. Pokemon like they would any others. Problem?

      Delete
    2. yeah, i actually didn't want 5th gen. i like kanto the best. that's why i wanted a kanto mystery gift or something. but there is unova, so *sigh*

      johto and hoenn are just ok :/

      Delete
    3. AGREED! WHY CAN'T SAM JUST GIVE US A BLITZLE OR A PIDOVE!

      Delete
  75. Are you kidding me? Zoroak took on the legendary trios ( raiky suicy and enty) and you guys call him weak, lame, and too rare. Who TF cares he awesome better than axew, and deion ( this is what I think), but seroulsy come on stop whinning and just vote jeez. You guys should ne cheering sam on to get PTD2 done not argur on who he should pick. Damn at least act like you got ome sense.....

    1. hydreigon has higher base stats than kyurem sooooo im just sayin getting deino early on is worth it in the end it pwns zoroark

      Delete
    2. well, some people don't watch films or episodes of pokemon(i assume that is what you are talking about) and some people just don't like zorua. so, in a way, YOU are the one who should stop whinning, you know, at the people. oh yeah and he IS too rare. oh yes and please stop complaning at people just becasue their oppinion is different than yours

      Delete
  76. Sry I misspelled, neis be and ome is some

  77. Zoroua is kinda....weird.....but once it evolves, HE IS A FREAKING BEAST!!!!!!

  81. Since it's pretty much guaranteed that zorua will win, how would his ability work (I'm assuming that it's not an easy one to program)?

      I assume it'll just make Zorua/Zoroark take on the appearance of something else on your team.

      Delete
  82. Here's an idea. Instead of having us vote in Zoroua by overwhelming majority, you could issue codes for all four choices and have the use of any one disable the other three for that account/email address/thing. That way, those of us who want poor little Sandile can pick it, and let the rest of the people have their oh so special Zoroua and Zoroark

    1. That is actually quite a smart thing to do, that way everyone is happy.

    2. It wouldn't matter if he did that, people would make alts to get them all.

    3. To Anonymous June 14, 2012 3:02 AM,
      The problem is that if that happened it would require Sam to put in much more code.

      I second this. Actually sounds like a good idea. I changed my vote, BTW, from Zorua to Sandile.

      Delete
    5. That is such an amazing idea, except that people can just trade for the others.

    6. I like this idea!

  85. Like Anonymous said Who TF cares stop act like a bunch of two years old and just vote on the Dam Pokemon you want and if it does win BE Happy and if It doesn't just BE Happy that it had a chance (sad sad sandile). I thoght we learnd are lesone with Victini But I was wrong. and be sides theres not that many P.D.P.(Pure Dark Pokemon) In Pokemon there mostly F.H.D.P. (First Half Dark Pokemon[Pokemon that are part dark part somthing else]) S.H.D.P ( Second Half Dark Pokemon [Pokemon that are part something part dark]). If you don't like what I said you can go do the phsicaly impossiable.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Nice update,

    I like the ida of sandile,I sed on in B and W. Krockok is amazing,however it is clear that Zoura will win.

    ReplyDelete
  87. sam could you put back in the game corner but with pokemon from other gens and mabye put deino in dretinis place seeing as they are basically the same

    ReplyDelete
  88. Hey Sam,
    Please reply to this! I don't know if you are working on this or not but I think that putting it on the android and apple app store could make this even more popular and it is an easier way to play insstead of having to get on the computer and type all of your stuff in! I hope that this will come out soon and I can't wait for PTD2 to come out!!!

    ReplyDelete
  89. Deino this is something harsh, but let me Axew something. Is it really worth the Sandile for a Zorua?

    -Haxing Cat

    ReplyDelete
  90. The poll seems like zorua is winning but axew is the better choice plus I agree with
    Ano

    ReplyDelete
  91. I agree with anonymous about the four choice idea

    ReplyDelete
  92. hey sam do u go by a diffrent name on the pokemon center because i found someone that goes by the name Zyphs and he has a diffrent avatar that hasnt come out yet and he has tons of legendary pokemon and shinys

    ReplyDelete
  93. seriously, i think that zorua suck a lot! it should be axew or deino! they are the bests! (of this pole)

    ReplyDelete
  94. guys who say add all of them, im sure with time they will, but the more he adds the longer we wait. second of all haters should stop hating and vote its fair not all people like to post stuff in comments i for one like zorua (i voted for deino but i like him more) and yes zoroark is beast but the rest are great too so vote and except the end result. the rest will come with time but in the end sam and dan games makes the call and if he thinks a votes fair (which i agree) then so be it

    ReplyDelete
  95. hey sam will we be able to trade from ptd to ptd2?

    ReplyDelete
  96. hmm all of them would add something good to a team haxurous has massive attack and on most levels thats all you need
    hydregion has the best base stat total but has a problem as he won't be able to evolve for a very long time
    zoroark may not have as high attack stats as haxours or the bulky ness of hydregoin but he evloes at level 30 the frist besides krokorok wihich is level 29 1 less it aslo has night daze a muddy water like move with better accurcay and chance of accraccy drop but less power
    krokidile has a good amout of attack but the main thing is probally going to be once it gets moxie yah one kill attack boost and i think in this version you can have more than one boost

    ReplyDelete
  97. I really wish Tirtouga was on the poll! He is very similar to an unreleased generation 2 pokemon, is a fossil pokemon (which Johto lacks), and is pretty stinking awesome! Please Sam add him to the poll! I don't really like any of the other pokemon that much (overpowered except for Sandile).

  98. HOW DOES ZORUA FIT JOHTO AT ALL!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    ReplyDelete
  99. Sam you can't keep letting little kids tell you what to do! They are going to vote for the pokemon that is included in the movies, and in their opinion, the strongest. They don't hardly know what a good pokemon is! ALL POKEMON ARE COOL! EVEN SHUCKLE! They just want the cheapest pokemon to make this game easy! You want to know what a real pokemon is! A real pokemon is one you train through the good and bad! I even have a Charmander level 100 in Pokemon Firered from real training! Also Sam will pokemon from Kanto also be included in this game? Because it would be cool if Poliwag, Pidgey, Caterpie, Geodude, etc. would appear in the first level because they included very early in the game.

    ReplyDelete
  100. Sam how are you going to make breeding?

    ReplyDelete
  101. Carracosta is the coolest generation 5 pokemon there is! How come he wasn't in the poll?

    ReplyDelete
  102. I like the electric flying squirrel pokemon Emolaga! He is pretty hard to find in pokemon black version.

    ReplyDelete
  103. Blitzle!!!!!!!!!!! IS WAY BETTER THAN ZORUA!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  104. JUST HAVE PIKACHU AS THE MYSTERY GIFT! THESE PEOPLE WANT THE CHEAPEST POKEMON AVALIBLE!

    ReplyDelete
  105. Sam would you be willing to put in the extra work to have all of those as mystery gifts, and add my favorite pokemon Tirtouga! I really love Tirtouga!

    ReplyDelete
  106. I think the next mystery gift should be axew. definitly Axew!

    ReplyDelete
  107. Zorua sucks.

    I'd rather stick to PTD1's Missingno's. And that, you can call armaggedon.

    Dark types are underpowered, lame and useless.

    Oh well, I'll just accpet the gift. Maybe, when it's rare, it'll be worth a Magikarp or so.

  108. I don't think that hydreigon is a Psuedo-Legendary Pokemon because i checked his stats at www.serebii.net

    his base stats are about 100
    his max stats are about 350

    but i think it might be a little too strong because thats about as strong as a legendary pokemon

    but think, in ptd 2 you dont have to grind so much and he gets to a hydreigon at level 64.

    hydreigon works mostly on special attack with 125 base stats and almost 400 max stats
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    About haxourus...

    his base stats are about 100
    his max stats are about 300

    but i think it might be a little too strong because thats about as strong as a legendary pokemon

    and haxourus is pretty over powered at attack with almost 150 base stats and almost 450 max stats

    but he gets to haxourus at level 48
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    About zoroark...

    his base stats are about 100
    his max stats are about 300

    but i think it might be a little too strong because thats almost as strong as a legendary pokemon

    but he has bad moves

    like hydreigon, zoroark works on special attack, with 120 base stats and almost 400 max stats

    and he evolves to a zoroark at level 30
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    About krookodile...

    his base stats are about 100
    his max stats are about 300

    but i think it might be a little too strong because thats almost as strong as a legendary pokemon

    he works on attack with almost 120 base stats and a little more than 350 max stats

    he evolves to a krookodile at level 40.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If you think about it, they are well evenly matched.

    I voted for deino because of moves.

    hope this is useful.

    -Randy

    P.S. when i say he i mean it and when i say his i mean its
    P.S.S. Sorry about the capitals :(

  109. I didn't know if anyone has asked u this yet but will u have shiny gyarados apart of the story like the official johto games before this. I know we could get shiny gyarados in ptd 1 but I didn't no if u were taking this game in a new direction or somewhat like the others.
