SnD Weekly: Happy Thanksgiving! First Gym Level, PTD Fan Film 4!

Want to get the Shiny Starters? Shiny Zorua? Shiny 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!

Happy Thanksgiving week everyone! Last week we successfully got some work done that had been backed up for a bit. Got the Daily Activity out, Researcher, Pokedex, Saving your storage's position. There are still some left to add but I can safely say that we can move forward with the next story level.

Mystery Gift
Last week we all decided we wanted Electric type as the Mystery Gift, but this week in honor of the flightless Turkey we will have a flying bird Mystery Gift. I picked some from different generations, vote on the one you want! Like Shinx, this one will be shiny and restricted to one use.

PTD Fan Film 4!
Joel posted the 4th video in the ptd fan film, check it out here. This episode is about a Joey encountering Team Rocket for the first time before you meet him. If you like PTD 1 then I recommend you check it out!

Funding Postponed + Details
We were planning to start our funding this week but Dan and I haven't been able to figure out all the prizes yet. Dan has been super busy doing a lot of business work for SnD Games so I can focus on game development. While he is not doing that he is answering order emails for Snd Coins and making 3d models for the creatures in CUTD. Thanks Dan! Anyways, the funding will be to help us keep developing PTD2 and CUTD. Coin sales and Advertisement help immensely but the future is a little shaky. We want to raise $50k and that will cover about half a year of expenses for artist, programming, design, any server cost. The cool thing is that if you help to fund you will get really cool and exclusive prizes! We will even have cool goals for reaching a certain amount and if we make it to the goal of 50k we will also have what are called stretch goals. Extra prizes that you guys can win if we reach even higher amounts for things like being able to hire an artist to be full time, being able to bring Dan in full time, increasing the amount of levels in CUTD and bringing things like multiplayer to those games. The funding will be very much like a Kickstarter but the reason we aren't doing a kickstarter is because we aren't trying to fund a particular project we are trying to fund the company itself. Right now I'm full time but it might be that if we can't complete this funding I might have to get a job programming for a different company and that will cut my game development time drastically. So we really appreciate you guys helping us out and in turn getting rewarded for it! Note: The funding has not started yet so there is currently no way to help us yet.

First Gym Level!
This next update will feature the first gym on PTD2. I really want to make these encounters stand out and for the enemy to have fun and new mechanics. So I hope you guys can look forward to that!

Creature Universe TD
Not going to talk a lot about CUTD this week. Just know that progress is being made and that I will talk more about it next week!

  4. hopefully Tailow or Starly wins the mystery gift poll

    ReplyDelete
  5. yes finally our first gym battle for story mode

    ReplyDelete
  6. I'm actually hoping that Starly would win. It's the best of the choices. Well, competitively of course.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Your birthday is next week!!!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Early stages of the vote, I hope all goes well (for me).

    ReplyDelete
  9. Two things not related to PTD.

    1.) Does the Wii have to be updated to use the Wii U? (I am thinking about getting it, but I want to be sure that it will work (under my circumstances) if I'll get it)



    2.) The deadline for when I need the interview changed (because I forgot we were doing something else this weekend), so it is do this Saturday night (or the one proceeding which I'll be able to tell you late (in my timezone) Wednesday). If you are unable to do it, please inform me.


    Like always, thank you for your time.

    ReplyDelete
  10. The Wii U is a new console.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yes, but it needs the Wii to work, so I was wondering if I needed to update my wii to be able to conect to the wii u.

    ReplyDelete
  12. You don't need a Wii to make it work

    ReplyDelete
  13. Swablu is obviously winning for its looks. Starly is competitevly, the best flying type in the list. Wingull would be decent at launching water moves at the moment. Swablu is just useless. Gets growl, peck, sing and astonish, every move's use is outclassed by another Poke.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Are you keeping in mind about Swablu's evolve form? That might be a key reason why people have been voting for Swablu or the fact that it looks Golden when it is shiny unlike the other Pokemon. I feel that this race will even out more later on, but of course I could be wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Coincidence that the flying gym is coming out near turkey day? I THINK NOT! :D

    ReplyDelete
  16. Its evolution doesn't do so good either.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Whats turkey day? We celebrate turkeys? Who does that?

    ReplyDelete
  18. please, some new attacks by level up

    ReplyDelete
  19. When will you start releasing avatar mystery gifts?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Happy thanksgiving and I hope we can transfer pokes after we defeated the first gym like meeting our old self(uncle) of our current self in the game in just one level we must defeat our old self this is my idea Thanks bye

    ReplyDelete
  21. why can't i go to first gym?

    ReplyDelete
  22. i have little question sam, why i have to choose my team every time i start the game? i thought their position will be saved?
    btw thanks for your great work in ptd 1 + 2

    ReplyDelete
  23. the update with the first gym isn't out yet

    ReplyDelete
  24. HEHE looks like awestiking Swablu is winning!! YAY

    ReplyDelete
  25. can u please check the account of Gessy1234567890Ge?

    ReplyDelete
  26. sam, pleeeeeeeease make a downloadable exe for ptd2 it was very handy for ptd1 and the only reason i haven been playing ptd2 is because i cant tell exactly when it has been updated (in ptd1 there would simply be another level making it obvious) and a downloadable exe was very helpful to differentiate that :) please think about it

    ReplyDelete
  27. yea on the game i trained a altaria to level 100 and even then i had trouble in a lot of battles with it. id be very happy if it were either starly or tailow

    ReplyDelete
  28. Sam you gotta have a few shiny hunting weekend events. where you drop the shiny occurrence from 1/8000 to like 1/1000 or 1/500 (or lower :D). itd keep like 80% of fans busy during the weekend and we love shinies.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I hope swablu or wingull wins.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think taillow is completely useless, and altaria has the best stats and the best movepool along with wingull. And both of staraptors strong moves have recoil.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm posting this before I vote for the poll or seen the results, my guess is that starly is leading and will win. But I will pick swablu because altaria's better overall. I would be happy if wingull won the poll too.

    1.Chatot- not a good movepooland low total stats.
    2.Starly -> Staraptor- its only strong moves (brave bird and close combat) both give recoil damage and less total stats that altaria.
    3.Tailow-> Swellow- low total stats and bad movepool.

    4.Swablu-> Altaria- good movepool and best total stats.
    5.Wingull-> Pelliper- Has strong attacks (hydro pump and hurricane) and good movepool but not good stats.

    Which is why I want either swablu or wingull.

    ReplyDelete
  32. no, swablu will win bcuz it evolves into a dragon type

    ReplyDelete
  33. I was missing ptd fan filmes. Good thing u brought them back.
    BTW, what happenned to the videos u made with GForce?

    ReplyDelete
  34. aren't swablu, taillow, wingull from the third generation?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Idk why so many people are voting for taillow. It sucks. It did absolutely nothing in Ash's battle with Tobias.
    Wingull is much better.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Your right, even Swellow sucks, bad moveset, bad stats....

    ReplyDelete
  37. nooooooooooooooooooo

    ReplyDelete
  38. I always liked Ilex forest. However I think it would be cool if Sam made it so after helping Celebi we could use his shrine to travel through time. Therefore useing his shrine we could go back to the other levels we have completed. It could also be cool because maybe then Sam could make a level in which we have to go to the future. That would be cool.
    Blaze

    ReplyDelete
  39. I always liked Ilex forest. However I think it would be cool if Sam made it so after helping Celebi we could use his shrine to travel through time like being able to turn the day to night and night to day.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yeah i agree with that

    ReplyDelete
  41. Happy soon to be Thanksgiving day! x3

    ReplyDelete
  42. Sam next week is your birthday so are you going to make another cool gift like last year victini??? Or you will make a legendary poll??

    ReplyDelete
  43. Happy thanksgiving all SnD forever

    ReplyDelete
  44. well i think swablu sucks

    ReplyDelete
  45. 1. today i went on my ptd1 account
    2. i was looking for my legendary pokemon
    3. i found out that somebody stole my shadow suicune and raikou
    4. i checked the trading center and it wasnt there either
    thats what happened to me today

    ReplyDelete
  46. Check the account vexslasher, he is able to get 15+ shinies in 1 day and also train his pokemon to lvl 50+

    ReplyDelete
  47. You cant get Shadow legendary dogs ;)

    ReplyDelete
  48. i also disagree :P
    haha


    the idea is keep the rarity :D

    ReplyDelete
  49. she changed her name to just Gessy, so check gessy.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Swablu rocks! And Altaria rules them all!

    ReplyDelete
  51. you used to be able to in the game corner, before sam took them out. They are still around and being traded.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Yes, you can. I got almost the complete trio.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Close Combat doesn´t give recoil damage, it lower your own Defenses

    ReplyDelete
  54. no, the wii u has its own console. A different console. it is a new console. You do not use the wii with a new controller, it is a new console with a new controller.

    ReplyDelete
  55. but swablu evolves into a dragon type.

    ReplyDelete
  56. what was the prize on 1v1

    ReplyDelete
  57. ledgendary mysterie giftazelf
    uxie
    and the other one

    ReplyDelete
  58. starly can learn close combat

    ReplyDelete
  59. Mesprit is the third one.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Staraptor can learn Close Combat. To be honest, I would be more scared of an eagle-like bird throwing punches than a small pidgeon-like one.

    ReplyDelete
  61. I kinda like Swellow. I like Staraptor, don't like Chatot, like Altaria, and Pelliper is my favorite of the 3.
    HM SLAVE!

    ReplyDelete
  62. kind of important but say I don't have a credit/debit card. Can I send some mail to you guys? I would love to donate 10 dollars.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I really dislike the current daily challenge, its too impossible to do, especially since it doesnt count if you trade again with the same person even if it's a different day. Could you at least make it so it resets each day? Or a new activity altogether.

    ReplyDelete
  64. we should get an idem from celibii that changes night to day and day to night
    if anyone agrees please like
    o and the sleeping sign post there should be somethin there for the futer

    ReplyDelete
  65. Are you sure? Search Pidgy with trades only. Keep on going down untill you find one that says any pokemon (any level) [] - Reguler or Shiny or Shadow. I got 26 easy (and ran out of pokemon to trade with, had to get all those pidgy's up for trade.)

    ReplyDelete
  66. You do know you kill yourself with perish song, right?

    ReplyDelete
  67. hey sam, do you have pokemon black/white 1 and if so do you have wifi?

    ReplyDelete
  68. sam...make it where you can transfer pokemon from game 1 to 2 BUT until you pass the 3rd gym they will go back to level 5(if they are level 75 or higher) if lower they stay the same level and past the 3rd gym you have the option to keep them the same level or revert them back to level 5

    ReplyDelete
  69. I agree with you, everyone should know that tailow and starly are the best 2 on the poll. a dragon type wont be useful in 2nd gen games.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I agree. the two best are Tailow and Starly. swablu is over-rated, wingull's evolution is terrible, and chatot is just bad.

    ReplyDelete
  71. You're right, sorry about that. I'll change it.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Any reasons why they're so good?

    ReplyDelete
  73. Happy thanksgiving to you too Sam!

    ReplyDelete
  74. But altaria doesn't!

    ReplyDelete
  75. Swablu best because you can't deny Altaria has the speed and power, Tailow is a close second simply because Swellow comes close.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Hey, sorry if someone already said this, but just wanted to let you know that the Pokemon that follows you is glitching a little bit when looked at from the side. It might only by my shiny pidgey though. I didnt get a chance to try with other pokemon

    ReplyDelete
  77. Sigh, two failed mystery gifts in a row.

    ReplyDelete
  78. no altaria is good but swablu sucks so thats why i voted for starly

    ReplyDelete
  79. yes you can when game corner on ptd 1 started you had chances of getting shadow dogs but i got mine from trading

    ReplyDelete
  80. Also that did happen its no joke!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  81. Dear Sam,

    I just want to say, HAPPY THANKSGIVING SAM!!!!
    -MasterQuestion

    ReplyDelete
  82. Sam, the counter in the daily activities is glitchy.

    This is what I did:

    1. Traded with Satoshi.

    2. Accidentally traded with Satoshi again.

    3. Traded with another trainer whose name is Kashi29384 or something.

    4. The counter still says I've traded with 1 trainer.

    5. I traded with both Satoshi and the K trainer again.

    6. The counter still says I've traded with 1 trainer.

    Please fix this!

    Thanks!

    P.S. I just learned something...you're American. The Canadian Thanksgiving passed last month.Oh well, there are more Americans than Canadians, so I'm fine with having to accept a shiny turkey in November.

    ReplyDelete
  83. the problem is that sam would have to put the pokemon into ptd2, and it is easier to do it gradually as he introduces them into the game.

    ReplyDelete
  84. Hey, Sam!

    A quick report of some improvements I wuld like to suggest for PTD2.

    1. Please fix the glitch that makes Shiny Shinx twitch and vibrate when viewed from the side.

    2. Golett and Golurk should be truly genderless rather than all male.

    3. Zubat in the Dark Cave seem to be able to teleport.

    4. Running Shoes! Please!

    5. A Thief TM so that our PokeStorage won't overflow with Rattata and Sentret.

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  85. Sam, please program Gender Differences into the game. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  86. Mystery Gift suggestions:

    Your Birthday: A Legendary of 600 total stats.
    Christmas: Snover?
    Valentine's Day: Luvdisk
    Daylight Savings: Plusle for Start and Minun for End
    Labour Day: Combee
    Earth Day: A Grass Type and a Water Type

    ReplyDelete
  87. Sam, what do u think about a mystery gift poll between all pseudo-legendaries.

    ReplyDelete
  88. k.
    maybe starly is good.
    but taillow is the worst pokemon on the poll. bad moveset, bad stats, why do u think it is so good.
    and who says dragon type is not useful in second gen games? It learns tm moves of almost all types and don't forget the defensive advantage against fire, water, grass and electr.

    ReplyDelete
  89. yeah i too will love to donate money, but i dont have a credit/debit card and i live in india.

    ReplyDelete
  90. can the next mystery gift after the first will be legenday

    ReplyDelete
  91. I'm happy about this and the last!

    ReplyDelete
  92. You're in India, hey we're in neighbouring countries! (almost neighbouring).

    ReplyDelete
  93. You're exactly correct. Why can't anyone give reasons for why Swellow is so good?
    Maybe becuz there aren't any.

    ReplyDelete
  94. where r u from?

    ReplyDelete
  95. Sam and Dam, I wanted my shadow Butterfree back because he was not hacked and it was just a bug that showed on my account ...
    And I also wanted to give an opinion, to get a little easier to catch shiny pokemon in the evening, they would have about 1% to appear, and the day would have about 10 to 15% to appear, shall we?

    ReplyDelete
  96. shinies r supposed to b rare

    ReplyDelete
  97. they are already programmed but i think jigglipuff's attract works on both

    ReplyDelete
  98. Oh, I almost forgot ... to better understand:
    Shiny= Day: 10% Night: 1%

    Shadow= Day: 1% Night: 10%

    ReplyDelete
  99. TEN PERCENT CHANCE OF SHINIES?????????
    ARE U KIDDING

    ReplyDelete
  100. yeah it happens with shinx too

    ReplyDelete
  101. its not sam's b'day -.-

    ReplyDelete
  102. there WILL be a legendary gift next week (sam's b'day)

    ReplyDelete
  103. i am really sorry to say dis.

    i know i am gonna get lots of negative ratings.

    but check dis out

    http://www.hackedarcadegames.com/game/15579/Pokemon-Tower-Defense-2.html

    srry again

    ReplyDelete
  104. That is what most people are recommending, which increases the likely-hood of Sam implementing it, but he might still not do it even if it is his birthday. I guess we will see.

    ReplyDelete
  105. What you said is not how it works in the game. Shinnies have a much lower rate and Shadows will varie on where to find them and there chances of being shadow.(Check FAQ for details)

    ReplyDelete
  106. Wait, you are trying to continue your previous comment. Well to that I'll say it will make things a bit too easy.

    ReplyDelete
  107. remember, swellow can learn facade and with ability guts+stab boost its attack power is 315 with facade. what other choice can rip everything up and the fastest choice by far, making it at least 2nd best, but you cant argue, its a freaking monster

    ReplyDelete
  108. Yah, not yet at least....

    ReplyDelete
  109. On condition that it is affected by a staus condition, so it's not very reliable.

    ReplyDelete
  110. not saying to do it right away..just a suggestion but...when you get the time you should add new levels to PDT1...just because now that i have all the good pokemon from the 1st game there is nothing to do lol....i still dont even have the dogs yet but when i do whats the point you know what im saying

    ReplyDelete
  111. last year it was victini

    ReplyDelete
  112. For christmas: winter sawsbuck(reindeer!)

    ReplyDelete
  113. Is it really hacked? I mean different friom this? Anyway they don't have the right to put it there (I think). Sam should remove it.

    ReplyDelete
  114. yes it is really hacked. but i dont think sam will remove it. remember ptd1?

    ReplyDelete
  115. but if u r patient, the time automatically changes

    ReplyDelete
  116. Meh, I guessed when I saw (Hacked Version) on a pidgey last night. There's not really any point using the hacked version yet because the softcap is low, there's no use for money, and nothing's particularly hard to catch at this poine of the game. Hell, I'm not even sure how "More money per kill works" since whenever I've seen my money increase, it never saves anyways.

    ReplyDelete
  117. Replace the sentret with Phanpy with Pickup. You'll have to make sure to either swap them once they level up a couple times or spread them out a little, but then you can go into battle and whenever a sentret uses its Oran Berry the Phanpy will grab it. Though my storage is overflowing with Phanpy now so this method has the same problem, I'm OK with it because I assume I'll be able to use pickup in higher leveled areas later on as well.

    ReplyDelete
  118. What I've been doing is changing the "whichProfile=#" part of the URL. It's not the most user-friendly way of switching profiles I guess, but I also find it useful when I realize I've been in the wrong account all along lol.

    ReplyDelete
  119. sam you gotta change the shiny occurrence. Make this a game of collecting Pokemon too. make it so your chances increase after every 1000-4000 encounters without finding a shiny. like after 1000 encounters your chance of finding is increased from 1/8000 to 2/8000, then after 2000 encounters its increased to 3/8000, until you find one. then it resets to 1/8000 again.

    ReplyDelete
  120. Sam can you make a button that makes your avatar go faster???

    ReplyDelete
  121. Sam himself made the hacked version, like PTD1 hacked version; If you read his twitters, he also claimed the PTD2 hacked version would have been released early this week ( exactly what happened).

    ReplyDelete
  122. Since you won't be using kickstarter, have you thought about indiegogo? It's waaay better, it's much more flexible and allows you to raise money for pretty much ANYTHING. So, in this case, you would be able to use it.
    Plus, it's not "all or nothing" like Kickstarter is. I suggest you check it out, I think it would be quite useful to you.

    ReplyDelete
  123. It would be cool if you could have something like a mixture of Ptd 1 and Ptd 2, by having a feature were, where ever there was a story mission, the was a history shrine that you would interact with and you could replay the story mode.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I agree with u, it should be great... however... these "timechange" skill should be limited to once or twice for every day (resets at 0.00am, server hour) and... obviously, these skill should not be linked to your celebi, but to your account, meaning that you may have a celebi in your team to be able to use the "timechange" skill, but no matter how much celebi's do u have, that you'll only be able to use this skill few times every day (perhaps two).


    Think of that... it would be a nonsense having a time system that changes by itself if you're able to change it every time u wish; I think it's better like now, you've different day periods to capture different pokemon (including shadow's, gastly's, ledyba's, hoppip's, sentret's...)

    ReplyDelete
  125. Happy Thanksgiving, Sam!!! you're doing a great work on PTD2, keep on it ;)!!!

    I've got an idea for daily events. I've though of a rotatory system of events. I mean, you program certain events on the game data base (capture certain number of X pokemon, trade with X trainers, evolve certain number of pokemon by training...), and every certain time (every Tuesday at 0.00am, for example) the event is automatically changed. This would allow u to fully focus on the game development without paying attention to program a new event every time.

    Another thing i'd thought is being able to have something like a mobile or a notebook that allow u to write down an ID number from another trainer, in order to know when he's on, an even to talk with him in-game. This mobile/notebook should have different sections to separate trainers (e.g, i'm spanish and I would make a section called "spanish-speakers" where I would write down every spanish trainers I know; If I would meet someone in a certain forum, I would make a section with the name of these forum ;) ). It also would be great being able to write short notes on the name of each trainer, so every time that I put the mouse on his name I can read the written note.



    I know these two things (specially the second one) are hard to implement, but I believe that the game would be even better with them

    ReplyDelete
  126. In regards to the item selection during combat, i feel the design is nearly perfect the way it is maybe a few slight changes in layout but my biggest problem is the inability to have a default item. By this i mean i feel the menu should allow for players to choose an item in their inventory that if selected can be remembered so that in the next battle you don't need to re-select it. For example if i want a pokeball to be my default item i just choose an option that makes it so whenever i get into a battle this item is automatically selected and ready for use.

    ReplyDelete
  127. tottaly agree with u, by this way u shouldn't forget to have some pokeballs at hand when u wish to capture a wild pokemon... but instead of 1 default item, I should add 2; balls (pokeball, supeball, level-ball...) and healing items (oran berry, potions...), like in PTD 1

    ReplyDelete
  128. legendary shiny poll, legendary shiny poll!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  129. hey sam please say that the gym battle will be in 1 vs 1 mode with this pokemons:hoothoot,dodrio and pidgeot.

    late night

    ReplyDelete
  131. zapdos level is already easy

  132. I think you should leave zapdos level as is, since it's pretty easy o.o , all you really need is one good pokemon and just call it back before anything can hurt it. with a little bit of skilful manipulation one can easilly beat the zapdos level with a couple level 10 pokemon.

    as a side note, i think implementing new types of pokeballs would be interesting, and instead of having just two shades to the hp bar(green and red for catchable) you could add more shades, like orange when hp drops to about 15%. At that point A great ball could be used on the pokemon while the regular pokeball X couldnt be used. Maintaining that pokeballs will always catch a pokemon( and great balls should be purchasable from pokemarts). Using htis idea you can even implement status effects making orange.red hues appear at a higher hp%

    ReplyDelete
  140. Sam, in the game, are you going by GS or HGSS?

    ReplyDelete
  141. To obtain the item but not the Pokemon so that we won't have to Trade/Release/Abandon like mad.

    ReplyDelete
  142. 20 more minutes to vote... Swablu will win.

    ReplyDelete
  143. Why would Sam want to make the Zapdos level easier? Just keep your Pokemon out of Zapdos's way and beat the rest of the wild Pokemon. It's not exactly rocket surgery.

    ReplyDelete
  144. isnt starly more popular?

    ReplyDelete
  145. it's only decent stat is speed, which is high for the evolved for of every single one of the potential mystery gifts, especially Staraptor(not to mention it's massive attack stats and good attack movepool, at high levels at least)

    ReplyDelete
  146. please have a ghost type for daylight savings, we all want it dead.

    ReplyDelete
  147. for speed in power staraptor is the highest out of all of them, check out marrilland pokedex for their base stats, staraptor is over 120 atk 100 speed, altaria is about 70 and 80(and is saved by a massive 105 spdef, but all the kids really care about is attack), and swellow is 85 in attack(50 in special attack) and 125 in speed,

    ReplyDelete
  148. true, and what is rocket surgery?

    ReplyDelete
  149. Swablu BETTER WIN!.........:DDDDDDDDDD IT DID!

    ReplyDelete
  150. Take a look at the 16 Nov. tweet @ Eastkid17

    ReplyDelete
  151. Actually I think It's a great idea, since It just makes It easier to level up pokemon, earn money and catch pokemon themselves.

    ReplyDelete
  152. You're right, Sam should keep it this way.

    ReplyDelete
  153. I like how shinx does that, it might even be intentional...

    ReplyDelete
  154. I have an idea for the future. When we get to Ilex Forest Let us meet Celibi. Then we help him somehow, he gives us an idem called the Stone of Time. This stone should let us travel to different times of the day. Say if it's morning, and you use it, you can make it be night time without waiting 20 minutes. Also, you should be able to go back to Cherrygrove City, and use this item, so you can go back in time so you can re-do the mission with the Zapdos, and after you completed/failed that mission, the stone would bring you back to the same town, but present-day.

    PLEASE READ THIS

  155. Lol. "I'll give you my shiny pidgey for your shiny pidgey AND a shiny cyndaquil!" She must be really young or something...

    ReplyDelete
  156. when will you fix the bug with learning moves past level 12? because now i mostly navigate areas and raise pokemon i get to lvl 12.

    ReplyDelete
  157. that's a wordplay... it means something that requires a genius... In fact, it does not take a genius to win that level.

    ReplyDelete
  158. dats wat i once said but apparantly noone noticed

    ReplyDelete
  159. yah they'll lose their value if they aren't rare. By far

    ReplyDelete
  160. i would accept the mystery gift pokemon in March, i mean, who wouldn't

    ReplyDelete
  161. this game is made different than both, but to answer you question, i would have to sa G/S, due to the art work of the houses

    ReplyDelete
  162. i said it 4 hrs. ago

    ReplyDelete
  163. It's kind of like brain science

    ReplyDelete
  164. that'd be something you might put in after the storyline is concluded to make things easier as a reward for completing the game. It would detract from the time of day feature if we could just switch the time of day whenever we wanted.

    ReplyDelete
  165. yah but u want to wait 10-20 minutes to get to the right time?

    ReplyDelete
  166. Also remember that later in Azalea Town there is Kurt, the pokéball smith... just in case you want to put him in the game...

    ReplyDelete
  167. Hey Sam, I've had an idea for Avatars, any chance we could win an Avatar or Poke hat by beating the Gym, for example, if you beat a gym you could get an Avatar of the Gym Badge, or a Hat of the Gym badge.

    ReplyDelete
  168. It's a level cap. The moves past level 12 hasn't been programmed yet.

    ReplyDelete
  169. Swablu won!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  170. sure, there are ways around it, but sam should still be made aware.

    ReplyDelete
  171. It's taking unnecessary shortcuts which disregards the whole point of pokemon. And it's unfair for the people who would rather do it the right way. And if Sam wanted to make the game easier, he would have made the unhacked version easier. Hacked version just ruins it for everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  172. How about a..... SHINY RAYQUAZA

    ReplyDelete
  173. I accutually like the last 2 mystrery gifts. The 1 before them totaly sucks.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Water and grass? or water or grass? water w/ grass, well only 1 comes to mind Lotad

    ReplyDelete
  175. maybe shinx is just really energetic...it is electric type you know

    ReplyDelete
  176. im pretty sure he`s just mixing up the two cliches of "it`s not rocket science"and "ìt`s not Brain surgery"
    I onlyy asked because of hte rmeote possibility that he meant something different

    ReplyDelete
  177. Then you would first finish a mission somewhere earlier in the game to get the stone of time, but the stone is not completely charged because of certain circumstances but at the end of the game you can try to beat a mission to get the rest of the charge which will allow you to replay levels

    ReplyDelete
  178. You realize pidgey is stronger, right?

    ReplyDelete
  179. I believe to somehow make it go with the story so far. Therefor somehow making it a unique tower defense battle like just about all the gyms in ptd1. A 1vs1 would be not as unique. But the Pokemon used I do not disagree with, maybe a surprise legendary appearance which you can not beat (sort of like celebi or BIG muk it ptd1).

    ReplyDelete
  180. I do not disagree with you or anything, but I think Sam was trying to say that he wants Sam&Dan Games to grow as a company and become independent and maybe even big in the game world. If he stays with Kickstart or as you offered, Indiegogo, he won't be able to make his works his own.

    ReplyDelete
  181. But not as rare, therefore better trades.

    ReplyDelete
  182. :-(
    I forgot to verify my disqus account, logged out by mistake, and now i have to start all over again.
    At least, i can use the same username.

    ReplyDelete
  183. yeah, instead of making it easy, he should make it replayable
