Welcome to the Sam & Dan Games Developer Blog! This week we are staring our Fundraiser, we need your help


Cosmoid's Week!
Okay so we are excited for the fundraiser but now let's talk about Cosmoids (previous called Creature Universe TD). Last week I had set my sites to do the PTD2 update and the first level for Cosmoids but I wasn't able to fit it in. This week I will focus my whole attention to Cosmoids to make sure we can start the Early Alpha for it.
Bug Hunts!
I'm focusing on Cosmoids this week but I'm not forgetting about PTD2, we will have a new Mystery Gift  and I will also look into several big bugs that PTD2 has. The main one is pokemon randomly changing into other pokemon, losing levels, and having their moves changed. Another big one that I've been hearing about is the pokedex not saving properly. The last one is the Onix Trade having people be suspected of hacking. I'm sure there are plently of more bugs out there but I won't have a lot of time so I'm focusing on the big ones.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  5. Did I miss it in the blog, or is there a minimum donation for the early access key?


    I'm really excited to see what you do with CUTD (or Cosmoids now, I should say)!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Sam but where I live we don't have $! We have £!

    ReplyDelete
  7. SAM WHEN WE FINISH THE BUG AND ROCK MYSTERY GIFTS, YOU SHOULD PUT UP A SHADOW POLL!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Sam has Joel quited the Pokemon episodes with Derick and Emma in? If he has I think it's got to do something with his job and not making enough of money. Also It's a shame because I really enjoyed them.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Hey everyone, I voted you all up because I was bored! What can I do next? I could vote everyone DOWN! Lol! Na I won't do that.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I think it is kinda unfair for people living in different parts of the world that they don't get the previliege of being able to donate in the fundraiser and get the advantages...

    ReplyDelete
  11. sam, is possible to help by credits of cel? sorry for my bad english, i'm brazilian.

    ReplyDelete
  12. sam when the gym number 2 cames?

    ReplyDelete
  13. next mystery gift won't be Gen 1...

    ReplyDelete
  14. Yeah ! That's a good idea !

    ReplyDelete
  15. Yeah, maybe but I don't think there's anything he can do.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Thanks for the awesome game Sam!
    I'm sorry that I can't donate and help you guys out, I don't live in the US and I'm too young even if I do.

    ReplyDelete
  17. i have something to say to you sam about ptd2. in the 1v1 at the start, the kid says something about ash being also called red. i know this is not true. ash is not red. in pokemon yellow, the name selection is yellow and ash (there may be others but i cant remember) and in pokemon red the name selection is red and some other name i think. at the end of every game you fight red the first champion of the pokemon games. then in yellow if you can find him, you can fight him. if u were to play pokemon black/white 2, you would fight red at the end and if you can find him you fight ash. this shows they are different people. another piece of evidence is that reds starter pokemon is blastoise, charizard or venisaur at the end when you fight him but ash only had charizard so there is absolutely no connection there. red also had a pikachu that he favored and looks similar to ash. there is a myth that ash is reds little brother but he lives in a different place and has a different mom. but there dad could be the same because i dont think you ever meet your characters father in any of the pokemon games. so no red is not ashs other name. they are not the same person. other that this mistake i love ptd and ptd2 and hope it just gets better! use the info i have given you for future reference. bye for now!

    ReplyDelete
  18. For the next Mystery Gift:
    Rock: Bonsly, Roggenrola, Dwebble, Aron
    Bug: Karrablast, Surskit, Joltik, Kricketot

    ReplyDelete
  19. Here, use this site to decide:

    http://veekun.com/dex/gadgets/compare_pokemon?pokemon=probopass&pokemon=cradily&pokemon=rampardos&pokemon=bastiodon&pokemon=gigalith&pokemon=archeops&pokemon=armaldo&pokemon=solrock&version_group=11

    Notables -- Rampardos has the 3rd highest Attack stat of all known Pokemon (highest non-Legendary) but has crappy Defense and Special Defense stats. Both Bastiodon and Probopass are in the top 10 for both Def & Sp. Def but are relatively weak in offense. Personally, I like Gigalith cause its Att & Def are more balanced. Unfortunately, it's pure Rock type, which has 5 type weaknesses. :P

    So maybe it's Shieldon or Roggenrola for me...

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wait... I forgot to consider Lunatone and Solrock. Maybe this time many will overlook that they're non-evolving, since both are part-Psychic types and we only have one of those right now. I think I prefer Lunatone of the two.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Anorith and Archen are alright. Maybe Aron.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hooh boy! Now I see that both are GENDERLESS so there won't be any breeding until Ditto becomes available. I don't think I like that! So it's back to Shieldon and Roggenrola for me. :D

    ReplyDelete
  23. Aron is primarily steel so...

    ReplyDelete
  24. When it seems appropriate to the story-line.

    ReplyDelete
  25. any donation will get you the early access key

    ReplyDelete
  26. Sam you was forgotten to put here ekans!!!!! :)

    Version Exclusives:

    What is the difference between Gold and Silver?
    Some Pokemon only show up in Gold and some only in Silver.

    Which Pokemon currently only show up in each version so far?
    In Gold Version: Spinarak, Caterpie, Metapod. (Note: In the battle in Cherrygrove City it is possible to catch Caterpie in Silver version).

    In Silver Version: Ledyba, Weedle, Kakuna. (Note: In the battle in Cherrygrove City it is possible to catch a Weedle in Gold version).

    ReplyDelete
  27. good find, adding it now

    ReplyDelete
  28. i would LOVE to have a fossil pokemon as the mystery gift! VOTE FOR FOSSIL POKEMON!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. sam can you also put in the pokedex the mistery gifts?

    ReplyDelete
  30. sam pls tell what is your dream and why u need money ???

    ReplyDelete
  31. I haven't played B/W2, so I can't say anything regarding that evidence. However, from Gold/Silver, when you fight the champion "Red" at the end, he has all the starters plus pikachu, snorlax, and lapras. All these pokemon Ash owned in the anime. Both Ash and Red are options for the hero name in the original game, and both Gary and Blue are options for your rival (in Red version that is). Moreover, Professor Oak only has one son, Gary, who is clearly your rival in the original games. He was Ash's rival in the anime. All these evidences and more have convinced enough people Red and Ash are the same person, as Bulbapedia points out, and Bulbapedia states outright that Ash is the clear anime counterpart to Red. For more, check out http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Red_(game_character)#In_the_anime.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I thought that spinarak and ledyba were morning and night, not version exclusive.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Hey Sam, remember those ideas I put up last post? You could put them to use in the fundraiser, but I still wont be able to get them because I'm on a finate money supply with no income. I'm a broke college student. I don't suppose I could get free copies of 1 each(only my ideas I'm not that greedy to suggest all of the ideas).
    P.S. You should put a "$" tag on all fundraiser Pokes and make it where "hacked" tags can't be removed from them(when you get around to removing the tag, that is).

    ReplyDelete
  34. true... i guess all we can do is just encourage him...

    ReplyDelete
  35. He will have to add all remaining Pokedex, which isn't that easy to make. It would take too much time to make them all at once.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I would vote for Lileep, because of the problems with Wooper and Mareep waves that I have heard of.

    But unfortunately it learns Grass type move at level 50.

    I don't know, if not Lileep, then I would say Anorith or Nosepass.

    ReplyDelete
  37. So you get Cosmoids on your PTD2 account? Will you register them on the same account ?

    ReplyDelete
  38. That would be one of the prizes to get Cosmoids into your ptd2 account

    ReplyDelete
  39. hmm haven't heard about this before, could be a freak accident

    ReplyDelete
  40. yeah technically Ash is not Red, since Red is much much better but Ash is the closest thing to Red in the anime so I went with it

    ReplyDelete
  41. if you get a paypal account you can pay thru it

    ReplyDelete
  42. he is working on the next one but yeah he has to get a job so he won't have as much time to work on it

    ReplyDelete
  43. if you have a paypal account it should work fine

    ReplyDelete
  44. Somebody AnonymousJanuary 22, 2013 at 7:49 PM

    Noooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. y cant on of em b lavitar its final rocks

    ReplyDelete
  46. I think Paypal would still work for those not in the US.

    ReplyDelete
  47. thanks! we will send you an email asking which account you wish to put the prizes in when the time comes

    ReplyDelete
  48. Sam please add a different way of paying. Many people can't use Paypal, and some people do not want to use it. Try adding alternative like Google Wallet and such so more people can donate. Although admittedly it will be harder to keep track of all of those different accounts, it will be worth it in the end.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Sam, I was just wondering: how will the gender work during the transfer from PTD 1 over to PTD 2? Will we get to choose the gender we want, or would it be random? Also, will we be able to bring pokemon back from PTD 2 as long as they are in PTD 1 and don't have any moves that are not in PTD 1?

    ReplyDelete
  50. I agree I will work on this

    ReplyDelete
  51. and i am very sorry sam i cant donation i dont have cerdit cards

    ReplyDelete
  52. Does that mean that most pokemon that are transferred will be male, even if they are usually 50:50 chance?

    ReplyDelete
  53. and what about a gift pokemon togepi in violet city??

    ReplyDelete
  54. do ya know how to transfer pokemon ptd-->ptd2?

    ReplyDelete
  55. how about a unova region pokemon mystery gift?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Hey Sam I want to donate $10 bucks but I dont have an account, my parents wont let me and I really want one of those prizes.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hey sam is it possible to get a regular jirachi?

    ReplyDelete
  58. Hey Sam are u ever gonna make all the menu items get triggered by enter?

    ReplyDelete
  59. Sam, I had an idea for the Mystery Gift. We players or you, Sam, creates a fake Pokémon (known as Fakemon), like this (Made by me): http://prntscr.com/q4o63
    To the fans of the 6th generation: http://prntscr.com/q4ov4
    (The Pokémons Are In The Overworld Mode)

    Sam, eu tive uma ideia para o Mystery Gift. Nós, jogadores ou você,Sam, criamos Pokémons Fakes (Conhecidos como Fakemons), como este (Criado por mim): http://prntscr.com/q4o63
    Para os fãs da 6ª Geração: http://prntscr.com/q4ov4
    (Os Pokémons estão como Overworld)

    ReplyDelete
  61. where did you get the gen 6th sprites?

    ReplyDelete
  62. i put one up there but it's not winning the votes

    ReplyDelete
  63. not right away, but it would be fun to add that

    ReplyDelete
  64. Because its FINAL rocks.

    ReplyDelete
  65. No he doesn't.
    Give me an example.

    ReplyDelete
  66. No.
    Its Steel/Rock.
    He may be there on a steel type poll.

    ReplyDelete
  67. Will most pokemon be male or all?

    ReplyDelete
  68. So? Swablu is Normal/Flying and it was in Flying poll.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Sam's Awesome Fan :D :D :DJanuary 23, 2013 at 10:26 AM

    Hey sam i have a idea for more money/income :D i was wondering if its possible to make it so that the pokemon center can get you funds just like the mystery gift redirection to playtowerdefensegames.com..... Could it work?

    ReplyDelete
  70. We use Won, but i don't think anyone here knows what that is....

    ReplyDelete
  71. Well, some pokemon are genderless and some are 100% female... but i'm not sure if others will be just male when they can be female.

    ReplyDelete
  72. 31st October of 2012 - Shedinja in Spooky MG poll

    ReplyDelete
  73. It's probably just fan-made I think (Y) Since evolutions aren't posted

    ReplyDelete
  74. Is there anyway to pay by phone (like how you can in Facebook) - Because my company pays my phone bill and they never mind a few more 'expenses' from my games. Then I'd be able to donate a bit more than with only credit cards :)

    ReplyDelete
  75. Sam said that he will work on other ways of paying. We just have to wait. :P

    ReplyDelete
  76. cant you just get paypal?

    ReplyDelete
  77. Not many people know about paypal in my country...

    ReplyDelete
  78. all the ones that can be male will be male, if they can only be female then they will be female if they are genderless then they will stay genderless

    ReplyDelete
  79. As taken from my last post:
    (Format) Name[Status], Type, Abilities, Moves, Sprite Details. Note none of these special pokemon evolve(too much hassle), and they only breed regular(Reg,Shiny,Shad) forms
    Flying Pikachu[Reg.], Ele, Levitate/Static/LightningRod, Fly/TailWind/ThunderShock/, Regular Pikachu with a small bundle of balloons tied to it.
    Surfing Pikachu[Reg.], Ele, StormDrain/Static/LightningRod, Surf/RainDance/ThunderShock, Regular Pikachu on a small surfboard.
    Boxing Pikachu[Reg.], Ele/Fighting(Seems more fitting to have the type), Guts/Static/LightningRod, DynamicPunch/MachPunch/ThunderPunch/VoltTackle, Regular Pikachu with a pair of boxing gloves.
    Glitchu[Shad.], (format break) just a Pikachu, The Poketrix Time Glich Ash's Pikachu with Swadow Stars(not the aura, just the stars).
    Crystal Onix[Shiny], Rock/Water(it was a giant watersnake), ClearBody/RockHead/Sturdy, Dive/Dig/RockThrow, A Shiny Onix that is crystal colored instead.
    I know that most of these are custom jobs, but they are all modified easily enough from current content.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Because we'll be able to catch them normally.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Sam, just want to say that I really appreciate all you do for us. PTD 1 and 2 were some of the best games I've ever played, and I want you to know that if it was possible for me to donate to you at this time, I would most certainly do so. Unfortunately, all I can do is hope that those who can donate choose to do so, because I think we can all agree that we want you to keep on doing what it is you so clearly do best.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Name jacker, I did not post this. Someone just used my name!
    While I agree with this guy, I disapprove of him using my name to say what he wants to.

  85. that'd be awesome too... but shiny gastly would be better :)

    ReplyDelete
  86. don't you guys think your pushing sam to the point where he is working to hard

    ReplyDelete
  87. That happens occasionally. It is Disqus's fault, nothing that Sam can do about it I think.

    ReplyDelete
  88. I said this last time but is their a place where we could send money via snail mail? I have a 20 sitting on my dresser that would love to go your way

    ReplyDelete
  89. Cranidos? Or Sheildon? What do you guys think i should pick?

    ReplyDelete
  90. It was my idea :D I'm so proud of myself.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Also, I would love to help, but I do not have a paypal account... Does that mean that if I do not donate, I would not be able to gain shiny legendaries, even through trading? Like, would shiny legendary not be an option for my account/pokedex?

    ReplyDelete
  92. Okay, thanks for the answer :D

    ReplyDelete
  93. sam,when your finish updating the cosmoids game,will everyone get to play?

    ReplyDelete
  94. do you think next week you could add some 1v1 levels?

    ReplyDelete
  95. I wish I can help on the funding but I don't have credit cards.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Could you make them female for breeding?

    ReplyDelete
  97. Or maybe you want them to be male so we CAN'T breed?
    If that's the case, I can understand.

    ReplyDelete
  98. for a while only people who funded will get to test it out and give feedback

    ReplyDelete
  99. you could trade for one

    ReplyDelete
  100. it is not safe to send cash by mail

    ReplyDelete
  101. I don't think anybody pushes me as hard as I push myself

    ReplyDelete
  102. I would have to find a willing sponsor, I get money from ad clicks

    ReplyDelete
  103. You can try to breed a female one :)

    ReplyDelete
  104. Sam I've just discovered where is the breeding center bug. If u use non-shiny parents, you'll receive both parents and "eggy" pokemon when the egg is hatched; however, if u use both shiny parents you'll receive no pokemon when the egg is hatched.


    I've been trying to get baby pidgey's using a shiny male and a shiny female pidgey and I haven't been able to ("eggy" pokemon simply dissapear).


    However, I succesfully got a regular "eggy" ratata from two regular rattata parents, so the bug is this... U can't get a new pokemon from breeding center if both parents are shiny. Sam I beg you to fix this bug as soon as u can. I've been trying to mail you but u don't answer.


    THIS BUG IS SIMPLY DISGUSTING CUZ U CAN'T GET SHINY EGGY POKEMON AFTER HAVING DONE AN IN-GAME SHINY HUNT (looking for two shiny parents with different gender)

    ReplyDelete
  105. I breed shiny couples of spinarak . belsprout and i received their kid normally

    ReplyDelete
  106. I'm talking about a breeding with both shiny parents. Have u tried that or you're using no shiny parents??

    ReplyDelete
  107. both male and female was shiny

    ReplyDelete
  108. maybe this bug applies on certain pokemon i never breed shiny pidgey's

    ReplyDelete
  109. I would like sam to say "ok... i'll see what can I do" or "there's a bug in the breeding center caused with x (regular), y (shiny) and z (all) pokemon making that if u breed them you wont' get their kid"... however, he doesn't answer me... and I'm not the only with this bug, as I've recently known... but there's no information, and I don't know what to do :(

    ReplyDelete
  110. we have ditto! :)

    ReplyDelete
  111. Okay, sounds great! A few more questions:

    Will all legendaries(regular) from 2nd the 5th gen be available in the game-that is, without spending money on them? And if they are, will the legendary dogs be on there as well? I was just hoping that it will not be like it used to be in PTD 1... And will there be any pokemon that might not get captured by the pokemon at red health? Also, will there be anymore legendary mystery gifts?

    ReplyDelete
  112. The true problem is when you have a credit card but no money in it.

    ReplyDelete
  113. not cash but a check. I don't have a credit card but I do have a checkbook. Sorry for the strange analogy.

    ReplyDelete
  114. just got a SHADOW treecko by breeding check it out TradeID (1510177ff7fcd6)

    ReplyDelete
  115. sometimes bulbapedia is bull crap. im just being honest with you here because most of that was just about pokemon in general. so i think i am correct that ash is not red because it even says on that stupid bulbapedia that on yellow red is not a name option. plus i even read sams reply and it said "yeah technically Ash is not Red, since Red is much much better but Ash is the closest thing to Red in the anime so I went with it" so there you go. case closed he is not red.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Nice, I've got Shadow Chimchar by breeding (150ec7c427fc52). :P

    ReplyDelete
  117. Sam; I've been trying to breed this shiny pidgey couple for almost a month, even using in different accounts, and I've unable to get a child for them. It's impossible me not to have noticed I've got the egg simply because I haven't lvl1 pidgey's in the pick up area, even after the egg is hatched.


    As I've said, I tried it with a rattata couple and I was able to get their child in the pick up area

    ReplyDelete
  118. Notice that all I said (and all Bulbapedia claims) is that some people think Red and Ash are the same. That fact is true. Moreover, it is clear that Red and Ash are counterparts. What we need to remember is that this is simply a game, not real, and that there are bound to be inconsistencies. If we want to reconcile them, we can posit that the games take place in a universe different but parallel to the universe of the anime, or perhaps the two are separated by hundreds or thousands of years. I think that is just silly and goes too far.


    The inconsistencies are on both sides though. Suppose Ash and Red are not the same person. Then who is Professor Oak's grandson? Is it Blue or is it Gary, or are they the same? And if they are the same, then who is Gary's rival, is it Ash or is it Red? And if they are not the same, then are they brothers, cousins, step-siblings?


    There are too many unanswered questions that are simply due to the fact that because humans created the pokemon games and anime, they are not perfectly synchronous. As a result, I suggest that the question as to whether Ash and Red are the same is impossible to answer, and we give Sam the creative license to choose as he would.

  119. Can Drapion learn the Ice Fang, Fire Fang and Thunder Fang at start?

    ReplyDelete
  120. I've only got normal pokemon by breeding. :(

    ReplyDelete
  121. Does that mean you get money only when we click an ad?

    ReplyDelete
  122. ya, i live somewhere else... don't have a paypal acount, though :)

    ReplyDelete
  123. Uh-huh... so sad... i would love to help!

    ReplyDelete
  124. I say this because PayPal can be rather evil sometimes and I suspect that your vendor account may end up suspended if this fundraiser goes through. You may lose out on some of the money as well. But be very careful which alternative you sign up for, Paypal is bad, but Google can be worse. I know I mentioned Google Wallet but you should really read into it and other alternatives before making a decision. I'm not sure how versed you are at things like these from a business perspective being an indie game maker such as yourself and I'm sure I don't need to tell you this, but as you continue to grow as a company things will get difficult and eventually there will be a hurdle you will have to jump. I don't want you to get screwed over on that hurdle like so many other small companies and individuals have in the past.

    ReplyDelete
  129. Ah, ok. Thank you for your answer.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Hey sam i read a few of the comments and i had a suggestion. most of your fans are under 18 so you should try and set up some sort of donation through surveys where you get a commission for all the people who you send there to do surveys. just something to think about :) id hate to see things go south because of no support.

    ReplyDelete
  131. Sam what happened to HTD and Dan

    ReplyDelete
  132. Yeah I'm considering making apps that users can donate through since it is more likely a parent will let them pay thru there instead of a paypal. Not sure I have heard of surveys like that, do you have a link?

    ReplyDelete
  133. Dan is a live and kicking, he helps with a lot in the background, HTD is put on hold

    ReplyDelete
  134. Okay, all problems solved!
    Thanks!

  138. hi sam i'm a great fan of youre work.
    but i had an idea would it be cooler if the breeding center was in a house in story mode instead of the pokemoncenter?

    ReplyDelete
  139. i have som problems my riolu hasent eveloved to lucario and my riolu is in level 20 :(

    ReplyDelete
  140. Happiness isn't implemented yet and this is why Riolu can't evolve for some time. :/

    ReplyDelete
  141. Yes, we will be able. But Sam will have to code fighting pokemon from trees first and add them to the game of course.

    ReplyDelete
  142. unfortunately i dont sorry. i just remember when i was a kid i (embarrassingly enough) used to love playing farmville and wanted the cash in the game but it costed real money so i used to go into there promotional page where there was things like 'watch this advertisement and receive 5 cash' or 'complete this survey and you get 5 cash'


    wish i could be more help on the matter!

  143. So will there be there Shiny Cranidos this week? or when the next level gets released?

    ReplyDelete
  144. Probably next Monday.

  145. What is after the gym battle with Falkner before Violet City? We go in Violet City, get Bellsprout Tower, the onix trade, the optional? battle with the gym leader again. Is the route with the Mareep and Wooper right after Violet City as far as we can go?

    ReplyDelete
  146. You should work on the details in the game next week, like soft cap increase, the map, and where it says in a window pop up thing where you are when you enter the screen/come on to the game, and other details like that

    ReplyDelete
  147. the lugia fight also, but yeah the route with mareep is as far as we can go so far

    ReplyDelete
  148. i put it in the pokemon center to generate ad revenue

    ReplyDelete
  149. I like the idea of being able to do that but it will require some work

    ReplyDelete
  150. yeah a couple of people have donated some cents and it has added up to .02

    ReplyDelete
  151. I'll try to look into those options thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  152. Yeah we'lll get it, but when i was playing pokemon crystal you didn't get headbutt until ilex forest )just saying).

    Another thing.... when we make it to the end of the game we will have 40 badges in total from Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinohh, and Univa correct? We can re-conquer Kanto correto?

    ReplyDelete
  158. Have you considered starting a Kickstarter project for your games? Its kinda similar to what you are trying to do here on this blog, but you might be able to reach even more people there. Just a suggestion. Anyways, great work as always.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Yeah, Sam said that this is only phase 1 and that he will try kickstarter or something else later.

    ReplyDelete
  160. How do you get money?

    ReplyDelete
  161. Well in generation 2 their was only kanto and johto but all 5 regions you're right you can get 40 badges.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Your Cosmoids thingy inspired me to make my own game similar to pokemon, Apocaloids. I've made 10 starters, one for each type. If you want, I can throw you a couple ideas for new Creatures, I doubt I'll be programming anytime soon.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Is there a special way to catch Phanpy? It says during the morning but I haven't seen any yet. Also, you said that we will only be able to find Shadow Pokemon in certain spots, right? Are there only Shadow Rattata, Sentret, Pidgey, and Hoppip so far or am I missing something?

    ReplyDelete
  164. Johnny Johnson Jr.January 26, 2013 at 9:27 PM

    What did ANPO stand for?

    ReplyDelete
  165. No, you can find Phanpy on Route 46 (Morning), but its pretty rare.
    Shadow Rattata, Sentret, Pidgey, Hoppip are available in the wild.
    The other Shadow Pokemon you can get by breeding.

    ReplyDelete
  166. Lol it looks like the world ended when he was typing.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Sam could you make more 1v1 levels. Its a really fun mode, and me and other s would love to see them,.

    ReplyDelete
  168. Sam, I know that you want to make Cosmoids creatures on PTD2 exclusive to people involved in the fundraiser, but could there be a mystery gift for at least the three free starters (the chameleon, the koala and the water buffalo)? I really wish that could happen. Maybe the Cosmoids prizes for the donors can be the other starters, etc.

    Also, I have an idea for the Cranidos Mystery Gift - since it is a fossil Pokemon, the Mystery Gift could give 6 Skull Fossils (with a sparkle to it as if it was a shiny Pokemon) and then we could revive it. Just an idea.

    Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  169. Really? That's what it meant? I thought it was more along the lines of "Animals Nesting Planet Omega" or something.

    ReplyDelete
  170. Try the trade center. You can offer these pokemon there and request a riolu. Otherwise, try looking on the fan forum.

    ReplyDelete
  171. I Can't get past the grass gym in PTD 1, and is there a wy to get past the guys blocking Route 32???

    ReplyDelete
  172. As I recall, the grass gym took a lot of patience and a lot of moving pokemon around. In particular, charizard is helpful in the fight due to his resistance to grass attacks from both his flying and fire types. Basically, you need to move pokemon around to each entrance as pokemon come out, and when their hp gets low, move them away from the attacking paths so that they have time to heal from the good celebi. You also need to learn the pattern for the evil celebi's attacks. I believe after every 4 waves (I don't remember if waves is the right term or not, but after a pokemon comes from each of the four entrances I mean), a celebi comes from one of the entrances, and those are in order top left, bottom left, bottom right, top right. Make sure to stay as far away from it as possible. And as far as you can, have all your strong attackers on the non-celebi pokemon that are coming through.

    For Route 32, I don't think there's anyone blocking the entrance to it from the city. You access it on the south side of Violet city. All other ways are blocked as they haven't been programmed yet though.

  173. guys, just make disqus accounts

    ReplyDelete
  174. Did you evolve a zubat? or have a golbat up for trade in the pokemon centre and someone offered the right things for it? coz then it could have automatically gone to your party, and you might not have noticed it...

    ReplyDelete
  175. Hey Sam, love the games. This is reliving my childhood in a different way, and that is truly priceless. I just graduated college and as soon as I find a job, i'll be donating what i'd pay for a brand new game. You should put your donation request on the game somewhere. There are a lot of other sites who host the game. I would have never known of the donation opportunity if i didn't check the blog. Thanks again for all the great work. I sure hope you can raise more than 500 dollars doing this. Although I'm sure you made a killing with the SND coins on the first game. I know I put in like 30 dollars lol (no regrets either).
