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

Last Week's Update
For the last update I focused on adding new transfers from PTD1 that could be breed to obtain new baby pokemon. We added Magmar, Electabuzz and Jynx to the PTD1 to PTD2 transfers. We also added the dawn stone to let female snorunt evolve to Froslass. Besides that we increased the level cap to 30 adding a bunch of new moves. Not only that I changed the way the learning moves system works too. If a move is in the game and ready to go and your pokemon can learn it or relearn it then it will be able to do so. It is no longer limited by the soft cap. The soft cap still remains in place to dictate which moves need to be added next. The last thing we added for PTD was the new Mystery Gift Shiny Absol and Giveaway Shiny Scraggy.

For Cosmoids, last week I added the swapping mechanic for your creatures and the new targetting move type. If you haven't played it yet, check out the Funding Rewards page on PTD2's Pokemon Center to find out how to try it out.

Wild Eevee appears!
The much requested PTD1 to PTD2 transfer will finally show up in this week's update! Along with Eevee you will know be able to transfer over all his evolutions from PTD1 (Jolteon, Flareon, and Vaporeon), plus using the Friendship Doll you will be able to get Espeon and Umbreon depending on the time of day that you use the doll in! All rejoice!

Soft Level Cap to 35!
I really want to reach the glorious level 100 soft cap. Having all the moves there really helps with figuring out more exciting levels to challenge you guys. It also helps with giving me extra time to work on Cosmoids. Story Levels really take up a lot of more time. Building the maps as you will eventually see in one of my streams takes up a good chunk of time. Reaching 35 will require 25 new moves!

Mystery Gifts
Like every week we have our Mystery Gift giveaway, it is my way of saying thanks for sticking with us week after week. We will also have the Giveaway which is our new tradition for this year. Right now it looks like Fire is dominating and there are quire a few good fire pokemon that will make it into the poll.

Live Streaming
I got my webcam and so the live streaming adventures begin! I will be posting on twitter when I'm live streaming. (I'm currently live streaming as I type this) So stop by and say hello, I'm always happy to answer questions and listen to suggestions. The link to my channel is  http://www.justin.tv/samsndgames

Cosmoids First Level making it exciting!
This week I will be focusing on making the first level of Cosmoids. Unlike what you might have seen so far in the first level you won't have a creature to help you. It will just be you and your bug bombs against those pesky bugs. First levels are tricky because it is the first time a player starts playing your game, you have to start teaching them things slowly so that they don't get overwhelmed by everything that is happening in the game, but you also have to make it exciting so that they want to keep playing. My goal for this level is to make it easy to understand but exciting to play. Hopefully by the end of this week you will be able to see the results of my effort.

    Oh, and Sam, just a suggestion. I have a lot of Pokemon up for trade, and it can take a while to scroll through all of them to see if any of them have any offers. And I do this at least once a day, too. So what I'm suggesting is, maybe you can make it so that any Pokemon with requests just kinda jump to the top of the list, so it's easier to spot them.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Missingno. MasterMarch 19, 2013 at 3:44 PM

    On the rare occasions when people vote poison, Trubbish never wins. How are we ever gonna get the world's cutest Pokemon as a Mystery Gift at this rate? Well, all I can say is, Heatmor better be an option when Fire inevitably comes out on top, and you all better vote for it, because not only does Heatmor have a cool design and great offensive stats (it's lacking in Speed, true, but that doesn't seem to be that crucial a stat in this game), but its Shiny form is downright badass.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hey, Sam! I've gotta say, this game is awesome! I've got a suggestion though. In PTD, you had achievements that we could work toward (catch a shiny Pidgey in the wild, beat a certain gym under certain conditions, etc.) Could we have the same thing on PTD2? That way, we still have something to do besides grinding and shiny hunting during weeks when a new level isn't coming out.
    Also, in Black2/White2, there's an achievement for beating the Elite 4 with a single-type team- one achievement per type. Maybe you could do something with that here? I know you used single type teams as a condition for catching the legendary birds in PTD, but could we see more of that? Maybe make an achievement for beating Falkner with an all-bug team?
    Thanks for reading, and I really hope that wedding plans are going well :)

  12. if fire wins next MG torchic

    ReplyDelete
  13. sam can add the item for evolved poke to 4 gen plsss !!!

    ReplyDelete
  14. YES is your work life and your dream dont give it up !!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. sam can add galaxy or other type poke ( other then shadow and shiny and normal poke ) and twice breed ( we can now up 2poke for the breeding but we get 10 Daily Coins 2 day get 2 egg)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Come on, guys... Fire in first and PSYCHIC in 2nd? We've already had Victini as a MG!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Missingno. MasterMarch 19, 2013 at 4:57 PM

    If you mean the Electirizer and Magmarizer, Sam already said he won't be adding those for a while.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Missingno. MasterMarch 19, 2013 at 5:06 PM

    No! Not another starter, come on! No, we need Heatmor to win this one. Good attacking stats right from the start- no need to evolve it- and it looks downright badass in Shiny form!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Missingno. MasterMarch 19, 2013 at 5:34 PM

    I think he wants to introduce them at a later point in the story.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Missingno. MasterMarch 19, 2013 at 5:35 PM

    I feel the same way about Trubbish and Klink. And Qwilfish, though that's likely to come with the next story level (provided it consists of the rest of Route 32, like I think it will).

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh, and Sam, just a suggestion. Could you put more Pokemon in the wild so that we don't only get Pokemon from the Mystery Gifts.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Missingno. MasterMarch 19, 2013 at 5:58 PM

    The thing is, there actually are such things as Shiny Pokemon and Shadow Pokemon in the official games. I don't think Sam's gonna invent a new variation of Pokemon just for the sake of something else. Besides, the addition of Shadow Pokemon is making it hard enough to catch 'em all.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Until Sam, if he can, does something, you can do this, its what i do. You click control+F for the search of the browser and you put View Request (1) instead of 0. Its faster and easier.

    ReplyDelete
  24. C'mon, you know that if fire pokemon wins, then another starter will win. I prefer growlithe over torchic, or even vulpix, but well, we know torchic its gonna win if he is in the poll, we can always expect for the ones we want to be the giveaways.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Training is relatively trivial at this point thanks to the unoun battles (endless experience). Blaziken trumps heatmor in pretty much every way. Not saying that heatmor is bad, or that it's bad to like pokemon that aren't overhyped or miss the spotlight, but you also need a healthy dose of reality. Heatmor is not a good battle pokemon. Blaziken also looks awesome all the time, and was the original fire/fighting type. So yes, GO TORCHIC!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Missingno. MasterMarch 19, 2013 at 7:21 PM

    Seconded. I'd at least like the rest of Route 32, so we can get Qwilfish.

  41. Thank you Sam for adding Eevee in your list! You have motivated me into catching 10 Eevees all in one day. :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. if fire gets the MG i say Darimaka he could be pretty cool. it is kinda surprising how few fire pokemon there are that arent legendary or starters

    ReplyDelete
  43. Hi, Sam! I enjoyed watching you do your thing earlier... (Um, creepers? Lol!)

    I was amazed that you've been making your own shiny sprites! I kinda assumed you had all those already, just waiting to be plugged into the game. I hope that download link I posted helped somewhat. There's no Unova Overworld sprites there tho...

    Also, I'm just gonna mention here again that Onix and Steelix are missing Sandstorm at Level 25. I already said this in your previous post, but I'm not sure you've read it.

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  44. hey Sam... I think there's a bug when evolving dusclops into dusknoir.... I traded it 2 times already holding of course the reaper cloth... nothing happened.... just a heads up!

    ReplyDelete
  45. That's not how it works here. In PTD2, it works like you would use an evolution stone or Friendship Doll.

    ReplyDelete
  46. When are you going to add lottery?

    ReplyDelete
  47. For the new Mystery Gift:
    Darumaka
    Torkoal
    Numel
    Pansear

    ReplyDelete
  48. You forgot Heatmor.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Why did my dusclops cant evolve when i trade it while holding reaper cloth? Or it is not evolve this way?

    ReplyDelete
  50. You have to enter battle while the Dusclops is on your team and holding the Reaper Cloth, just like how you would use an evolution stone. Don't feel bad, I made the same assumption myself at first.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh thanks for the help :D

  55. Gotta Ketchum AllMarch 20, 2013 at 4:18 AM

    hey, sam. I'm not sure what happened, but i put up my shadow steelix for trade. I requested a shiny dunsparse,or a shiny wooper, or a shiny scraggy. Somehow an automatic trade was completed when somebody offered me a shiny metapod. Is there a possible bug or something? Nice job on the game by the way.

    ReplyDelete
  56. I like torchic more. But I agree, save the starters for their generation Sam!

    ReplyDelete
  57. The world's cutest pokemon? Trubbish? I know that you know that not everyone says that. So please just speak for yourself.
    You CAN call it the ugliest, and no one will argue though.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Dear sam i have seen the new moves but i am still waiting on the moves fire blast solar beam and hydro pump

    ReplyDelete
  59. Speaking of HEATMOR, isn't DURANT is it's rival or something? I just thought what if these 2 POKEMONS are based on NBA. . HEATMOR = MIAMI HEAT VS DURANT = KEVIN DURANT of OKLAHOMA THUNDER. It's just a wild crazy thought. hehehe XD

    ReplyDelete
  60. I agree Brynn, I'd also like to see more NPC quests akin to the Shadow Pidgey/Hoppip girl. or the Shiny Voltorb guy in PTD1.

    ReplyDelete
  61. growlithe and vulpix will be transfers over mystery gifts without a doubt. Just saying. ^^

    ReplyDelete
  62. it says right in the error what the problem was "already has more than 'max_user_connections' active connections"

    ReplyDelete
  63. Hey sam, Really been enjoying the livestreams! I had a little concern I wanted to bring up. I mod a PTD chatroom and one of the most common questions I get is "What do I do after Shadow Entei?" Do you think it'd be possible to do a generic pop up after reaching the end of the whatever current level is? "Stay tuned for more Pokemon Tower Defense Generations!" lol

    ReplyDelete
  64. Yeah i realise that just when i press de post bottom haha.

    ReplyDelete
  65. and if you have two requests for one pokemon?

    ReplyDelete
  66. ohmygosh it happened again!!!

    ReplyDelete
  67. look at pokemon lake...

    ReplyDelete
  68. it is funnier if you need to evolve it and blaziken is cooler than heatmor

    ReplyDelete
  69. sam, what is the point of in game money? is there one?

    ReplyDelete
  70. Dear Sam I suggest that on holidays is the only time you make the mystery gift a legend since there are fewer holidays than other days. Please respond to this As Soon As Possibble as i know that you are busy working on the other moves you are adding.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Because of daily coins, Sam said he might actually just get rid of in-game money. There is no current point, and he doesn't have one planned for the future that he's announced.

    ReplyDelete
  84. You put 2, instead of 1.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Have you tried it? All held evolution items work by equipping them and then going into battle, which is what Missingno. Master said. Try to get your facts straight before giving completely unhelpful one word answers.

    ReplyDelete
  88. Missingno. MasterMarch 20, 2013 at 6:03 PM

    Actually, the Metal Coat does require the Scyther or Onix to be put up for trade while holding it, probably because it actually has an effect in battle.

    ReplyDelete
  89. want startes fire no more......... i only like startes fire water grass but -_- sam dontt add they sam can add the poke will not getting in msg is poke center for buy for the snd

    ReplyDelete
  90. Really? That's weird. Maybe the fact that the metal coat has a battle effect has to do with it, but ti seems weird that Sam would change the evolution method only for that one. Ah well, thanks for clarifying!

    And how do you know Heatmor wasn't intended, anyway? Why would Sam leave it off?

    ReplyDelete
  102. If you read the comments below, you'd see that someone already corrected me and I acknowledged it before you said anything. Which makes both your comments completely unhelpful, and the second one an attempt at a petty comeback.

  104. Missingno. MasterMarch 20, 2013 at 7:51 PM

    How are people actually voting this up?! Heatmor does not suck!

    ReplyDelete
  105. It's just a guess, but given that Sam has never altered a poll once posted in my recollection, it seems likely that the poll is according to Sam's intent. As to why, I can't answer, but it seems more natural to assume that it was purposeful than an accident.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Missingno. MasterMarch 20, 2013 at 7:54 PM

    I guess so. Still, it's just frustrating. The one Fire-type I wanted to win the poll, and it's not even on the poll.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Missingno. MasterMarch 20, 2013 at 7:55 PM

    Oh, yeah. Just voted Pansear, so take a wild guess as to who's in last place.

    ReplyDelete
  108. From the perspective of battling in the actual pokemon games, consider the following from smogon: "Even in the languid depths of the NU tier, Heatmor struggles to make itself stand out in any way."


    Although I do not dispute the other merits of heatmor's design, it is widely accepted that the pokemon is bad in battles. Again, I'm not claiming that battles are everything, but they are something worth considering.

    ReplyDelete
  109. Lol, I voted numel, so not much better over here. To be honest, I wanted torchic, but I realize that we did starters last time, so it makes sense to wait a while for them again.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  117. I like Heatmor's design. Why do you all seem to hate it?

    ReplyDelete
  118. Sam probably figured a starter would automatically dominate the poll. Personally, I'm more interested in knowing why Heatmor isn't in the poll. It's not a starter, it's not a legendary, it's not from Generation I or II, it's not already in the game, and it's not a dual-type with Fire as its secondary type.

    ReplyDelete
  119. Seconded. The rest of Route 32 means bodies of water, which means Qwilfish!

  120. Alternatively, you can also get eevee by trading in PTD 1.

  121. Sam already did starter polls. The starter pokemon are rather special, so it makes sense to save them for later. Note that I say this as one who really wanted torchic as well.

    ReplyDelete
  122. its an ant eater that doesn't evolve from my least fav generation and his shiny is just like a darker red nothing to special.also durant(steel right?) didnt win so it wouldnt really make sense to me.

    ReplyDelete
  123. Yeah, I would take heatmor over these guys.

    ReplyDelete
  124. I want numel too.

    ReplyDelete
  125. So did I first time!

  126. Interesting!

    Darumaka's evolved form Darmanitan has the ability Zen Mode, which enables it to change form and base stats... Will we see that implemented in PTD2? If yes, that would make Darmanitan the first Pokemon in the game to have an alternate form (discounting Unown). I'm excited to see how Sam will make that happen!

  127. Oh Brynn Brynn Brynn, could u be my darling? XD

  128. Darumaka?! Darumaka?!?! DARUMAKA?!?!?!?! What the heck is wrong with yyy. . . . . . . wait. . . .. . . . hmmm, I don't even know anything about darumaka, maybe I'll give it a chance. . . . PTD forever!!!

    Seeing as how Zen Mode is on the list of Abilities Sam is going to be adding to the game, I'd say he's implementing it. Should be interesting.

  130. cyndaquil is the only of the trio left

    ReplyDelete
  131. darumakas evolution has the highest physical attack of any fire pokemon

    ReplyDelete
  132. That is the reason why every generation of Pokemon comes with a stupid Monkey Pokemon... -.-

    Actually, where a regular Heatmor has yellow stripes and claws, a Shiny Heatmor's stripes and claws are kind of a lava-esque orange-red color. Where a regular Heatmor has red stripes, a Shiny Heatmor has a very dark shade of red instead. And where a regular Heatmor is some brown-grey color, a Shiny Heatmor has the coloration of a Shiny Charizard. Let me repeat that- the color of a Shiny Charizard. Honestly, how many of you who think Heatmor isn't cool have even seen what a Shiny Heatmor looks like?

    No, Heatmor's design sucks.

  136. Sam, can you do something with the daily coins, its getting forever to collect enough to buy thing in the item store like incenses or something else. I dont know, something to earn more quicly daily coins, i dont know, instead of 20 coins for breeding, 40, or another activity ingame easy enought to earn some coins, but its getting forever like i said to earn coins =(.

  137. Bug report, Sam -- Something's wrong when a Pokemon with the ability Pressure is attacked with a move that inflicts a status problem. I was using Absol in a one-on-one battle with a wild Spinarak. When Absol was poisoned by Spinarak's Poison Sting, Absol stopped attacking and it looked like Pressure backfired (well, not exactly, but you'll see what I mean if you try switching moves). I don't know if it will be the same against Weedle (I was playing the Gold version) or if it's only Absol that has this bug...

    Also, the description of the move Charge says "it also raises the user's SP. DEF stat" but it looks like it's the SP. ATTACK stat that is raised. (Sp. Attack = Lt. Red, Sp. Def = Lt. Blue, right?)

    Lastly, the description of Super Fang says "Will do half OR your life or half of the target's life in damage." Should be "half OF your life..."

  138. Camerupt's better!

  145. Hey Sam,

    I love ptd 2! I hope you dont mind me suggesting something...
    Well, I think it would be awesome if you could add full-screen mode. That would be pretty cool.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Sam, will you add the other 2 breeding slots you promised? it will help in breeding and distribution of pokemon a lot!

    ReplyDelete
  147. hey sam, could we possably get new zones to train in? maybe up to the next town or to the cave atlest, its hard grinding some types on the grass/flying area we go now, and the exp sucks :(

  152. crobat dosnt work well for grass types, and the unowns get annoyin cause of the shadow dog -_-

  153. Sam has already answered this. They will come out when pokemon in the game naturally learn them within the move cap.

    ReplyDelete
  154. Sam, i gave Thunder/Fire/Water stone to my eevee and it didn't evolve, why?

    Shadow Entei is easy. Just have something with Flash Fire as the first thing on your team, have that out somewhere on the field, and Entei will only target it, leaving the other five to freely handle the Unown.

  156. he turns zen mode if you put that ability on him and he goes below 50% health

    ReplyDelete
  157. DOH why didnt i think of that -_-

  158. neither do I... i think is a bug

    ReplyDelete
  159. But Darmanitan yes

    Bulbapedia:
    "Name origin

    Darmanitan is a combination of Dharma (alternate spelling of daruma) and orangutan. It may also involve titan."

    ReplyDelete
  160. flash fire cyndaquil(evolutions) or litwick

    ReplyDelete
  161. Wait, check that, except numel.

    ReplyDelete
  162. Sam, you made a mistake, Pressure says " The pokemon raises the foe's attack and cooldown"
    Shouldn't it be the other way around? And I think without the attack stat change?

    ReplyDelete
  163. The fire, water, and thunder stones wont work on eevee, plz fix it! :(

  168. My first shiny bred! But curse my luck, it had to be beldum.

    ReplyDelete
  169. Sam, i got an idea. If you are at the pokémon center on your ptd2 profile, can you make it so that you can input ANOTHER
    email to the ptd 1 profiles? because before i couldn't remember the email for my ptd1 profile so i had to make a new. But now i remember and now i can't transfer any pokémon :( i really want Umbreon and Espeon...

    ReplyDelete
  170. I agree that would be good. As an aside, I think it would be much wiser to evolve eevee in PTD1 before transferring over if you get the chance, since the stones are so much easier to buy in PTD1.

    ReplyDelete
  171. I think the "and" isn't supposed to be there.

    ReplyDelete
  172. well if it is too easy then everyone will have 100s of coins, there has to be some challenge. same with breeding. it takes a long time but thats kinda the point or it gets too easy and the rare pokemon get easy to get and everyone gets all shinys and all the other stuff

    ReplyDelete
  173. Yeah you're right... now I trade back to PTD1 from PTD2 to evolve my shinies... ops, I can't...

    ReplyDelete
  174. Hello, Sam !

    I really like the first Cosmoids level. It is simple and exciting.

    I am wondering how will we get our first creature/monster (how are we supposed to call them ?). Will someone give one to us ? Will we have the opportunity to choose it ? Will it choose us ? Will it join us in our adventure for x reason ?

    By the way, how many creatures/monsters are you planning to do ? 100 ? 150 ? even more ?

    I am impatiently waiting for next level. I hope it won't take a lot of time !

    Anyway, continue the great work !

    P.-S. : I love the live streaming you do. This a great way to communicate with your fans and to show us what you do (and to correct some errors and bugs only fans can see). Continue doing live streaming.

  175. but you can PickUp the evolution items meaning that in the long run using the PTD2 stones is better.

    ReplyDelete
  176. and it becomes a sp/def tank in Zen Mode

    ReplyDelete
  177. level 25 plus Jirachi and Wish

    ReplyDelete
  178. Yeah, you're right.

    ReplyDelete
  179. It's more than me.

  180. Assuming you can front the initial 20 daily coins, which is non-trivial, whereas it is trivial to get hundreds of thousands of pokedollars in PTD.
