Welcome to the Sam and Dan Games Developer Blog! Where you get all the latest news about our games and their updates and stuff... yeah!

Sam and Dan Games: Fundraiser! Phase 3
Help us keep making games and earn awesome prizes like Shiny Rayquaza!  
Our Goal: $50,000

Latest PTD2 Update v1.37.1
The last PTD2 update again brought us some great new things. We kicked it off with Ditto, Onix and Scyther as new pokemon that you could transfer from ptd1 to ptd2. It goes without saying that Ditto is a great addition since you will be able to breed some of the previously unbreedable pokemon like golett and beldum. I hope their numbers will go up as time passes on. In addition to those I added the Metal Coat item that will enable you to evolve your Onix and Scyther into Steelix and Scizor respectively. The twist is that you need to find the Metal Coat somewhere in the game's story mode maps before you can unlock it to buy in the Item Store. I hope I can add more item hunts in the future like this. Like every week we also had a mystery gift which was Shiny Spheal which you can get all this week (as many as you want!) and we had a very limited giveaway for shiny snorunt. Last but not least I added a new story level to the game. You will battle with a Shadow Entei, watch out for his devastating Mean Lock/Fire ball combo. A small tip is to use pokemon like the Mystery Gift Spheal to take hits of the fireball for other pokemon. Good luck!

Fundraiser.. slow and steady
I haven't forgotten about the fundraiser but I feel like the prize for the 10 dollar mark just aren't as interesting as Rayquaza was at 5 dollars. What do you guys think would be a worthy prize for the 10 dollar mark? In case you don't know the current prize for 10 dollars is all the previous prizes plus your choice at Cosmoid Starter for your PTD2 account. Let me know in the comments below or on twitter.

Live Streaming
We all know I like to keep you guys updated on all my game development efforts. I updated the blog with my progress, I have a current status in the blog that I update. The next logical step is to show you guys directly and live what I'm doing. Nowadays live streaming is very simple to do. So the question is would you guys want to see a live stream here and there of me working on games? Obviously I would have to cut out certain things that I wouldn't want to show you. But again let me know what you think of this.

Baby Pokemon Incoming!
Originally with PTD1 to PTD2 transfers I wanted to go in pokedex order, but after last week of kind of picking and choosing I think it's more fun that way. So while reading some comments of last week's blog I noticed somebody mentioned magmar and electabuzz and that got me thinking. They have something in common which is they have prevolutions! (They also have evolutions but we won't get them this week) As a third pokemon to transfer it made sense to bring in Jynx which also has a preevolution! Babies for everyone I say!

Dawn Stone and other items
Like the week before I plan to bring the Dawn Stone to let you evolve your female Snorunts into Froslass. I don't however plan to add many more evolution items in the next week as I want to feature them in the story at other points in the game. So you won't be evolving your Magmars and Electabuzzes any time soon. Please don't ask :)

Mystery Gift
This week it looks like it's Dark's turn. Vote on the poll to see who will be the shiny Mystery Gift and who will be the Shiny Giveaway! I will hopefully be able to slow down people that are getting more than one set by using multiple accounts. Stay tuned. 

Soft Level Cap Increased to 30! Plus get the moves that are in the game!
I'm also increasing the soft level cap to 30! (Aren't I nice?) I'm also changing it so that if the move is in the game then your pokemon can learn it regardless of the soft cap. This is something I've been wanting to do for a while and this week I will be tackling it. What this means is that lets say I increase the level cap to 30 like I am this week that means Gible can learn Dragon Claw at level 27. This is great news for somebody with a gible but what about somebody with a Gabite or Garchomp? They learn it at level 33. So before this meant that even if the move was there ready to be used, you didn't have access to it due to the soft cap. So I'm removing that limitation. If the move is ready to be used in the game then your pokemon will learn it. I will however be sticking to adding new moves based on the soft cap so keep that in mind.

Cosmoids Progress
I'm pretty happy with my Cosmoids progress for last week I got the creature swapping mechanic down and I"m pleased with my efforts. Sadly I didn't get much time to work on the new move mechanic but I hope to crush that down this week. In games usually you spend a lot of time building the base of the game. The core mechanics that the player will have to keep doing over and over so I take great care in trying to make these the best that they can be. Once you nail the basics down it is all about making the content which goes by a lot faster. In ptd this is similar to how long it took ptd2 to release and then how quickly I can make new moves now. Patience is the key but after you pass that stage everything starts speeding up.

Weekly Progress 
Ah yes, the progress part of the blog. Like every week I will post the details of everything I'm working on and then throughout the week I will update it as I make things. So keep checking back and cheer me on as I complete the task for this week.

  1. What would be a good prize for the $10 dollar funding level?

    ReplyDelete
  2. Should I livestream?

    ReplyDelete
  3. Maybe for $10, a person can have a pokemon of their choice? OR maybe that would be a higher price because of the work it would require. I am not sure about livestreaming though, but maybe other will like it! Also, not to be terribly rude, but when you barely released the update which allowed ditto to be transferred, I transferred my shiny ditto but I can not find it on any of my accounts. Do you know what might have happened to it? This isn't me begging to get it back, but it's just been puzzling me. Thank you if you can help, and thanks for making this game, IT'S AWESOME!!!

    ReplyDelete
  4. Personally, I don't think you should have started with the rayquaza, maybe something less popular. For ex. start off with groudon, then 5 dollar to koyrgre and finally $5 for Ray. What might be interesting is an exclusive shiny legendary pack for the first few people who donate a certain amount of money. Sort of like the feature in kickstarter.

    ReplyDelete
  5. A second breeding slot!

    ReplyDelete
  6. $10 to choose and give 3 Mystery Gift / Giveaway Pokemon that are no longer available? About the livestreaming: yes, you should. Reason being you can take suggestions while working on games LIVE rather than waiting for us to give feedback through tweets and such. It'd be an easier way to connect with us. Just some thoughts.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Yeees!!! You should! maybe it's time for you to show your awesome PTD GOD's face to the fans!!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Yes, Fourth!

    ReplyDelete
  9. A limited ASH KETCHUM avatar and a personal pikachu( I mean a pikachu with different abilities and moves depending on the funder's preference).

    ReplyDelete
  10. All hail SAM!! All hail SAM!! All hail SAM!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Yo SAM, I've been thinking maybe you should make the move transferring by breeding now. I really want a Shiny MEGANIUM with ANCIENT ROCK. please? XD

    ReplyDelete
  12. For the 10$ dollars funding level, I think you should give a rare and limited pkmn item, like leftovers, black sludge, etc . . .

    ReplyDelete
  13. Probably not for $10, I'd say maybe special in-game features (such as a more interesting house, the ability to battle any human on the map, etc.)
    Making another account gives you a second breeding slot.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Pokemon with custom moves! Zapdos's Thunder, Kyogre's rest, Muk's Gas, Pidgeot's Gust, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Glitch Pokemon?

    ReplyDelete
  16. dose anyone want a shiny chimchar or a cyniderquil for a shiny female snorunt. If you do my name is TCG (capital letters). Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  17. lol, I have a pic on twitter

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hey Sam, I don't know if this was mentioned before, but maybe you should put PTD2 on Kickstarter, you will definitely get some attention there. As for the new $10 prize, I say you should put some mystery gifts from PTD1 as a prize, since I missed most of those and I think with me many others. Keep up the good work!

    ReplyDelete
  19. what about for $10 you get an x4 daily coins for when you complete something?

    ReplyDelete
  20. how do you change your email adress

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh, well, I don't have a twitter account, soo. . but it'd be so cool if you do that atleast once in a month.
    If I'm not mistaken, there was a guy who has been uploading videos on youtube showing all your updates every week, maybe you should do that too and the twist is that you'll show yourself too sometimes. I think PTD fans might feel so close to you in that way, we're gonna be happy too if we're gonna get even just a glimpse of your lair(workplace, lol). . XD

    ReplyDelete
  22. hey sam why charizard dont have this attacks :dragon claw,shadow claw
    and air slash and dusclops dont have any elementary punch in their
    relearn moves.i think any other evolved pokemon have its starting moves
    in relearn move like steelix and arbok all have 3 elmentary fangs,scisor
    has bullet punch...

    i hope you will add them soon by.please answer

    ReplyDelete
  23. Sam, would there be something you can do to an accidental use of 1 SnD Coin?
    I mean, I was purchasing a thunder stone off the Pokemon Center and I accidentally pressed "Buy for 1 SnD Coin".
    I was thinking if we can get a refund of somewhat coins since I really have no use for them.

    P.S. I tried to take advantage of Phanpy's Pick Up after I evolve my Pokemon and it still works.

    ReplyDelete
  24. SomebodyAnonymousMarch 12, 2013 at 8:09 AM

    What's Ancient Rock?

    ReplyDelete
  25. A TM or two?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yeah, I like the idea.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Maybe x2 or 3 I think x4 is too much.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yes! Finally someone I voted for as the M.G.!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Shadow Mystery Gifts!March 12, 2013 at 9:56 AM

    Can you make Shadow mystery gifts instead of Regular and Shiny? ( Just a idea I had )

    ReplyDelete
  30. Eh electabuzz could be a use to anybody's team if you could get it to evolve into electivire

    ReplyDelete
  31. True enough. I guess the fact that people can cheat to get a second breeding slot makes it less worthwhile. Perhaps a second breeding slot in addition to a permanent version of each of the incenses (i.e., one which is not consumed on use)?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Most of those are not too difficult to trade for on PTD1, especially since many (if not all... I forget) of them were unlimited in use. If you really want some of them, trying looking there :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Sam is not adding moves yet for pokemon obtainable only by surpassing the level cap. For example, you have to wait until the level cap moves above 36 for all of charizard's moves that his lower evolutions couldn't learn.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Next week, can we get Eevee PLEASEEEEEEEEE?
    I think if you make Eevee available, we won't need anymore transfers for the week...
    Also, will you start putting up polls for the transfer, maybe??

    And possibly some dates and days of weeks, for the sake of Lapras XD

    And please don't forget what I already mentioned: more complicated search/reqeusts...

    ReplyDelete
  35. Oh, yeah yeah, I meant Ancientpower

    ReplyDelete
  36. I like that Idea, re-usable incenses!

    ReplyDelete
  37. it´s cool to know that you read feedbacks!!thanks!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I dont like shadow pokes, they are just shadow. Shinyes at least have different colours, they are, at simple sight, better.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Err...What? I don't see the difference between 5$ and 5 dollars, honestly...Also, Kyogre and Groudon are just as popular, and he will not be giving out legendaries as awards all the time, you see.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Just a quick question, didn't you say that you will add Luvdisc in the adoption slot...? And then continue to add some of the limited giveaway ones?

    ReplyDelete
  41. then why arbok can lear elemnentary fangs this attacks are all at lvl 1 eakins couldnt learn any of them so why arbok yes and charizard no they are both evolved??

    ReplyDelete
  42. alexander lindströmMarch 12, 2013 at 2:12 PM

    ya that would be good and if you fix eevee can you please fix the umbreon and espeon then, it would be so cool :D

    ReplyDelete
  43. there's a pickup-bug where if you have a pokemon with pickup and a pokemon that evolves with thunder stone or some thing (pikachu + thunder stone) give the pokemon the evo-item and put it and the pickup pokemon in your party and enter a battle. the pokemon evolves and the pokemon with pickup, picks up the item

    ReplyDelete
  44. yeah that is my intention but it slipped my mind

    ReplyDelete
  45. simple, ekans evolves to arbok at level 22 which is within the current soft cap (25). Meanwhile charmeleon evolves at level 36 to charizard which is not within the soft cap. That is why charizard doesn't learn his relearn moves yet. But the new changes I'm making might make some of his moves available.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hmmm it doesn't really matter 2 me cuz I managed to trade and get all the limited giveaway pokemon XD
    But will you be adding them later?

    ReplyDelete
  47. SomebodyAnonymousMarch 12, 2013 at 2:54 PM

    I know, its my way of telling someone their idea is silly. Even if breeding moves are available, AncientPower is not available yet.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Definately. I'd watch it whenever I could.

    ReplyDelete
  49. yeah I added it to the list, at least luvdisc

    ReplyDelete
  50. Supershiny masterMarch 12, 2013 at 5:18 PM

    Sam can you add rhydon in the transfer because you added nidoking and nidoqueens in the transfer

    ReplyDelete
  51. Missingno. MasterMarch 12, 2013 at 5:24 PM

    Why does that mean he has to add Rhydon next?

    ReplyDelete
  52. In order for that to work, he'd need to do a double Item Hunt with the Mossy Rock (Leafeon) and the Frozen Rock (Glaceon).

    And then there's the matter of Sylveon... We don't even know what type it is yet! (I still say it's a Light type since Sylphs are quite similar to seraphi and angels)

    ReplyDelete
  53. Because Nidoking, Nidoqueen and Rhydon are all Drill Pokemon, oddly enough.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Somebody AnonymousMarch 12, 2013 at 7:00 PM

    Slyveon simply won't be implemented until after the new game. Leafeon and Glaceon can be implemented later in the game. The rest can still be implemented.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Somebody AnonymousMarch 12, 2013 at 7:01 PM

    How does Nidoking and Nidoqueen warrant the transferal of Rhydon?

    ReplyDelete
  56. Somebody AnonymousMarch 12, 2013 at 7:01 PM

    That isn't relevant.

    ReplyDelete
  57. What if you made a list of every legendary pokemon available and for every $5 (starting at ten) they can personally pick one. So at $10 they get to choose one and at 15 they get to choose 2 different ones, etc. Or Even make a special club where at $30 they join a "get a legendary every month club"

    ReplyDelete
  58. I know it isn't, but I believe it's his reasoning, as flawed as it is.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I wonder if klink will EVER win a mystery gift...

    ReplyDelete
  60. Keep up the great work with the game :)
    Also As for transfers i think you should work on pokemon which are already in ptd2 and catchable and are in ptd 1(and catchable) as well as there evolution lines.Then i think you should work on the pokemon with an evolution.
    Also its quite annoying to find quite a few people having something silly like 8 shiny snorunts,but i guess thats just a nitpick of mine.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Missingno. MasterMarch 12, 2013 at 7:38 PM

    I feel your pain. I want Klink, and Trubbish too.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Exactly as Somebody Anonymous has said. If it were to be as you say, we don't even know the types/moveset of any of the pokemon on 6th gen!! No!!!Sam can't make the game cuz we don't have information on them!






    ...Not the case, huh? Leafeon and Glaceon can be implemented later, because Mossy Rock and Frozen Rock are not items, but areas, for god's sake.

    ReplyDelete
  63. a good 10$ prize might be a custom avatar item, or automatic limited ed giveaway pokemon for like 2 or 3 weeks, or an item that makes any 1 pokemon a shiny, or they get a new update to the story a little before others, or a signed PTD card from u(sam). there r some of my ideas let me know what u guys think. ill post some more later and also about the people saying the prize should be pokemon of the choice i think that would be kinda hard bc if 100 people do it then that's 100 different pokemon that have to all be individually made and brought into the game. cool idea but it could be a lot of work i would think

    ReplyDelete
  64. Somebody AnonymousMarch 12, 2013 at 8:37 PM

    Why are talking about yourself in 3rd person? Anyway, saying Rhydon should be transferred because Nidoking and Nidoqueen
    are transferable is equal as they are all drill Pokemon to saying everything
    should be transferred because they are all Pokémon. Your suggestion has no strong
    points to defend it.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I believe he meant 'he' to be supershiny master, with his comment starting all this.

    ReplyDelete
  66. No offense, but I was just going to ask some people who voted for absol to change their vote to sableye, because absol's already winning by a mile, and we can get sableye too if he gets enough votes.

    ReplyDelete
  67. But I personally don't know how I'll be able to work knowing that hundreds of people are watching me.
    But if it works for you...

    ReplyDelete
  68. can you stop suspecting hacks i just got thourgh route to the vermillion city and got all my pokemon over level 52 and blastoise 59. and lost a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  69. I wanted poochyena... :'( O well. Both absol and scraggy are good solid pokemon (even if they don't look as cute as shiny pooch)

    ReplyDelete
  70. i really want the cosmoid starters actually.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Somebody AnonymousMarch 12, 2013 at 10:31 PM

    Ah, Discus was acting stupid again...

    ReplyDelete
  72. sam can you transfer your ptd pokemon to ptd2 if you have different account emails

    ReplyDelete
  73. yeah, but the question is, will they be transferrable to PTD2 too? for example victini isn't a 1st gen pokemon, but still a mystery gift in PTD1 if I remember correctly.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Absol probably wins, finally people are voting a decent pokemon!

    Well...i wish no shiny again...normal Absol is better

    And wish Pawniard for second place...

    ReplyDelete
  75. Think, that means he will need to add all of them. If that were to be the case, we won't get any updates for at least a month! Get a legendary every month? Really? I don't even see point in saying anything about it...

    ReplyDelete
  76. Also, could you add cancelling breeding? I keep making mistakes...

    ReplyDelete
  77. Next transfer Eevee family and next mystery gift Nincada because Shedinja is trolling good fun.
    $15 earns the special Pikachu set I suggested god only Knows how many posts ago. No Pokemaster, there will be no spiky eared Pichu. It's not a Pikachu.

    ReplyDelete
  78. I normally prefer gen 4 or earlier because those are the games I play, but Pawniard and his evolution do look pretty awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  79. yes but it requires more work as you have to trade them from one ptd2 account to the other

    ReplyDelete
  80. how to change email adress

    ReplyDelete
  81. That's ok, I won't be donating 15 bucks anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  82. This is the idea of the secondary after effects I mentioned.

    ReplyDelete
  83. We simply can't. Already asked like a million times.

    ReplyDelete
  84. sam why can't I bread ditto and jirachi

    ReplyDelete
  85. guess the people voting fofr absol could be Chuggaaconroy fans, I did not see absol, I voted for scragffgy, because I didn't look closely to the choices

    ReplyDelete
  86. I transfer me Nidoqueen from PTD1 to PTD2, but I can't put her to breed, because she doesn't appear on the screen... Why?

    ReplyDelete
  87. Missingno. MasterMarch 13, 2013 at 9:56 AM

    Nidorina and Nidoqueen can't breed. Nobody knows why, it's just the way GameFreak did things.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Missingno. MasterMarch 13, 2013 at 9:57 AM

    Much as I like Pawniard, I like Scraggy better. I'm glad Scraggy's in second and Absol's in first- those were the two I was hoping for this time.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Ssh! What are you doing? We don't want Sam to change that!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Hey, Sam, minor thing, but Glalie's animation makes it look like it's hopping along the ground instead of floating in midair.

    ReplyDelete
  91. But... But... But Scraggy...

    ReplyDelete
  92. For the record, ash's pikachu isn't all that special... volt tackle, iron tail, thunder bolt, and quick attack and It's not shiny. The only thing it has thats any good is it's usually given away with Light ball, which doubles pikachu's attack and special attack, but only works for pikachu. I wouldn't donate more money for it.


    I'd rather see another legendary, preferably one that was a mystery gift in the regular series. Meloetta, Deoxys, or Darkrai. That'd get my money.

    ReplyDelete
  93. it's hard to make it very good with only 2 frames

    ReplyDelete
  94. I get that. The big issue, I think, is that when the trainer is walking sideways, it looks like the bottom of Glalie is level with your character's feet, you know? Anyway, as I said,very minor thing.

    He dose not need to add it next all i said is that can he add it because Rhydon share the same species name with Nidoqueen and Nidoking

    ReplyDelete
  97. i personally like the idea of fleshing out the starters for cosmoids then giving them out in ptd2, aswell as the incenses because in relativity 10 bucks would easily buy you 300 incense at that point you will take quite a while to go through with them

    ReplyDelete
  98. HI Sam ptd 2 dont work on me can you fix this i wanted a shiny spheal
    .

    ReplyDelete
  99. You can always breed to get a normal Absol.

    ReplyDelete
  100. sam, can you add another slot to the breeding center? its taking forever to breed. or maybe reduce the time from 2 days to one, dont know, that way the population of the giveaways or babies and even normal pokes increase in the trading.
    if you can, it would be awesome, and a great help for everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  101. So what, Sam would have to make 649 pokemon now? If that was ever to be a prize, it would worth like $30 because you know how hard it is for him to make new pokemon.

    ReplyDelete
  102. He said that if he were to increase them, he would make it require Daily coins/SnD coins. He's doing it for a reason so that the population of the giveawyas or babies pokes DO NOT increase in the trading.

  103. If that happened, the value of pokemon in PTD 2 will drop, as for shiny or shadow. Also, they are there, so why want to transfer them from PTD 1? It's not like it's going to make the work any simpler...

    ReplyDelete
  104. That was what I said in the first place: That he said it because they're all Drill Pokemon!


    However, this can't happen since we'd also need Rhyhorn, and Rhyhorn is a Spikes Pokemon, not a Drill Pokemon...


    Then again, Drilbur and Excadrill fit the bill simply on their names.

  105. What are the rules for breeding? How much does a a parent pokemon being shiny increase the chance of shiny baby?

    "Having the parents be shiny/shadow and using certain items you can buy in the item store will increase the chance that the egg is shiny/shadow depending on the combination that you use. (Note: Items that increase shadow/shiny chances will be consumed in the breeding process.)" what are the best combinations?

  106. I like the idea of donating ten dollars(or more) and getting three previous mystery gifts from ptd1 or ptd2....and then for every five(maybe ten) dollars added to starting price you get another previous mystery gift from ptd1 or ptd2......you could also group all the mystery gifts into different groups and you can only access to the different groups by donating different amounts of money....like say you can only get shiny charmander/bulbasaur/squirtle/mew/shadow missinggo by donating 20 ...and then say you can only get shiny entei/suicune/raikou by donating 25/30 dollars and so on and on.

  107. Ash's Pikachu? I think you have me confused with some other posts. I'm the guy pushing Surfing, Fighting, Flying, and Time Glitched Pikachu as options along with a Crystal Onix, and Pokemaster is pushing for Spiky Eared Pichu, but not as a donation prize.

    ReplyDelete
  108. Did you even read the FAQ?

    "Below are things that will increase the chance of your egg being shadow or shiny.

    Parents being in the same family will increase the shiny and shadow chance of the egg by 1%.

    A parent being shiny/shadow will increase the chance the egg will be shiny/shadow respectively by 2% per parent that is shiny/shadow.

    Holding a Gold Incense/Dark Incense will also increase the chance of the egg being shiny/shadow respectively by 4% per item.


    An example of the highest percentage you can get is both pokemon being from the same family, both being shiny, and both holding gold incense. This would give you a 13% chance for the egg to be shiny and a 1% chance for the egg to be shadow."

    Hey SAM, why not make a rare Shiny Johto Pokemon as a mystery gift at least once? XD

    ReplyDelete
  110. Hey sam u do know its just super luck dont u not super lucky =]

    ReplyDelete
  111. Yeah you're right, that would be a incredibly difficult. Maybe a pokemon with a special move? Like a Charmander with water gun?

    ReplyDelete
  112. yeah but ditto can breed any pokemon

    ReplyDelete
  113. Trade Center's still not letting people log in. The games and the center keep mentioning something about max users connected.

  116. hey sam, i have a quick question.

    you said when you fix the pokedex-bug, you will add all pokemon based on the evolutions we have. so are the baby-pokemon also included in that? im asking because i have 2 shiny igglybuff. one of them i want to trade, the other one i want to evolve, but then i will lose my shiny igglybuff also in the pokedex. so im not sure what i should do. i hope you can help me with that :)

    ReplyDelete
  117. Ya, maybe people could choose a certain move and make a pokemon learn it...

    ReplyDelete
  118. still a bunch of pikachu's and another version of onix doesn't sound all that great =\

    ReplyDelete
  119. sAM DID u know when a poke dont evolved learn many move

    ReplyDelete
  120. Not pokemon with breeding group undiscovered. Most legendaries are in the undiscovered group, and out of all the legendaries, only Manaphy can breed, and not to itself but into Phione.

  121. is it possible to catch the baby electrabuzz jynx and mamgmar in the wild

    Sam at the last update of ptd2 you should make a league like in the show so that people with 8 badges can enter but it is 1v1 pokemon battle and it should be online so we verse other people.

    ReplyDelete
  123. oh while will you trade me an electrabuzz

  124. Missingno. MasterMarch 14, 2013 at 6:44 PM

    Hey, Sam, so just so I understand what's going on here, when you say that learning moves will no longer be restricted by the level cap... Does that mean that, for instance, a Dusknoir would automatically have access to Shadow Punch, ThunderPunch, Fire Punch, and Ice Punch, even though the level cap hasn't surpassed level 37 yet? Essentially, are you saying that a Pokemon will continue to learn moves beyond the level cap, provided you've added the moves to the game?

    ReplyDelete
  125. i can trade 1 with you (on ptd 1(ptd 2 later))

    ReplyDelete
  126. ok what do you want

    ReplyDelete
  127. Yup, I think so.

  129. Hey sam i found a bug, Whenever i turn my ditto into the lugia it's gust attacks my teammates and the move info for it shows up as sweet kiss and also there is something wrong with the pokedex not showing the preevoltions that i transfered

    ReplyDelete
  130. Somebody AnonymousMarch 14, 2013 at 10:38 PM

    Missingno. Master and Pokemaster13 are right. You're not.

    ReplyDelete
  131. hard to tell at this point, if I remember I will add the babies also

    ReplyDelete
  132. the pokedex is a known bug and the lugia thing is intended

    ReplyDelete
  133. still, 4 pikachu's and an onix with nothing but different looks doesn't really peak my interests. Maybe as a mystery gift or something. But for donations I'd rather have something more along the lines of:


    1) Non-consumable incenses (a set of 4, 2 shiny and 2 shadow)
    2) Another shiny legendary
    3) Perhaps a unique TM that teaches some kind of unique move
    4) a unique hold item
    5) A berry farm where we can start growing our own berries

    ReplyDelete
  134. apparently ditto doesn't like being lugia, lol

    ReplyDelete
  135. Hey SAM, why not zoidberg? hehehehehe

    ReplyDelete
  136. Are you gonna make a Gen. 6 starter as a mystery gift in the future when the actual game is out?

    ReplyDelete
  137. Scraggy's good, I like him, I just like sableye more.

    ReplyDelete
  138. Somebody AnonymousMarch 15, 2013 at 8:23 AM

    The berry farm is practically useless, as we can easily catch stuff holding the available berries...

    ReplyDelete
  139. you don't need a phone, just a computer

    ReplyDelete
  140. thanks for the reply, now i can evolve my igglybuff :)

    btw. any idea when you will fix this bug?
    anyway you are doing a great job. keep it on :D

    ReplyDelete
  141. if somebody out there makes the sprites for them (since the game will be in 3d) then I wouldn't mind putting them in once the stats and attacks are revealed

    ReplyDelete
  142. Pablo Labra FernandezMarch 15, 2013 at 1:57 PM

    i had an ideaaaaaa! what if we need have Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres to catch Entei, Suicune and Raikou? and after that we need the 6 at the team to get Lugia/Ho-Oh?

    ReplyDelete
  143. something like that would be interesting

    ReplyDelete
  144. i also tried this on entei and it did the same thing

    ReplyDelete
  145. Yeah, it's intended. You shouldn't be able to use ditto on bosses. The structure of tower battles is completely different from actual pokemon battles.

    ReplyDelete
  146. so its exposed to do that

    ReplyDelete
  147. I use my google account now. Sam! Long time no see! Just wanted to ask you something, Why are all the Routes Route 29 musisc? change them to the proper music!

    ReplyDelete
  148. by the way it is cherrim98

    ReplyDelete
  149. my duskskull cant evolve with dusk stone

    ReplyDelete
  150. That's because it's not supposed to. Duskull evolves into Dusclops when it hits level 37, and Dusclops evolves into Dusknoir when you go into battle while it's holding a Reaper Cloth.

  151. finally got the limited pokemon! yay im happy!

  157. Double Team & Astonish not there in the relearn option of Frolass.

    ReplyDelete
  158. I haven't been around a lot lately, so I dunno if you mentioned this somewhere, but how do you transfer Pokémon? There doesn't seem to be a button for it on PTD1 or PTD2 profiles.

    ReplyDelete
  159. Missingno. MasterMarch 16, 2013 at 7:40 AM

    There's an option labeled "Transfer to PTD2" in the PTD1 Pokemon Center.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Missingno. MasterMarch 16, 2013 at 7:40 AM

    Same here. It figures it would happen while I was asleep.

    ReplyDelete
  161. Missingno. MasterMarch 16, 2013 at 7:42 AM

    I brought this to Sam's attention a while ago. He'll fix it when he has time. In addition to that, wild Pokemon shouldn't be playing the trainer battle music, Sprout Tower has its own unique music that it should be playing, and the music that plays on the inside part of the Ruins of Alph should also be playing in the outdoors part of them.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Hi Sam!

    for the next update, i'd love to see the headbutt pokemon ! ^_^
    i don't know what you have in mind for them but as Pineco and Heracross are my favorite pokemon...

    anyway i love your game

    ReplyDelete
  163. sam I've got my dusclops evolving into dusknoir, and at lvl. 42 it said ' dusknoir is trying to learn hex ' but the soft level cap. is 30?

    ReplyDelete
  164. He changed it so it's no longer limited by the soft level cap, though only in the case of moves that he would be programming into the game that would fall under the soft level cap. You'll also be able to teach your Dusknoir Shadow Punch, ThunderPunch, Fire Punch, and Ice Punch, by the way.

    ReplyDelete
  165. The word is "supposed", not "exposed", but yes :)

    ReplyDelete
  166. Yeah, I just got one 55 minutes after the second announcement!

    ReplyDelete
  167. what do u want, i want a litwick bad

    ReplyDelete
  168. Yeah, asleep again. Hope when a new giveaway is open ill be awake.

    ReplyDelete
  169. 1 shiney and 1 regular beldum

    ReplyDelete
  170. It might just be me, but I can't transfer any of my non-shiny Electabuzzes from my old PTD account.

    ReplyDelete
  171. The Slenderest ManMarch 16, 2013 at 3:10 PM

    a good prize could be all the secondary mystery gifts so far... or something like that.

    ReplyDelete
  172. Hey Sam, for the next update, could we have the rest of the PTD1 Pokemon that are already in PTD2 available for transfer? Those would be Jigglypuff, Zubat, Bellsprout, Geodude and Gastly. Oh, and their evolutions, of course.

    ReplyDelete
  173. Sam, i am begging you to please add Gyarados to the the transferring from ptd to ptd2 list, so i may use mine..... it took me forever to find a shiny gyarados in ptd1 so please allow us to transfer gyarados to ptd2.

    ReplyDelete
  174. Missingno. MasterMarch 16, 2013 at 6:04 PM

    Sam, whatever you're going to allow for transfer in the next update... could you please include Missingno. among them?

    ReplyDelete
  175. Really prefer Eevee, or magikarp, o even snorlax so we can have munchlax too. But, missingno would be awesome too.
    Right now, i really want a Scraggy.

    ReplyDelete
  176. magicarp is gonna be later in this game so no point in making it a transfer

    ReplyDelete
  177. Will you settle for 1 shiny? You can just breed the other.

    ReplyDelete
  178. For a shiny litwick I mean.

    ReplyDelete
  179. Can some one tell me which pokemon can i trensfer to ptd 2
