No blog post last week
Sometimes the week starts to pass and you haven't written the blog post and before you know it you say okay I'm focusing on making an update rather than write a blog post. That's what happened. But this week it's Monday I have a game plan for the week so I'm here writing the blog post. All rejoice!

Last week's update
The week before I had set out to make the second level for Cosmoids and due to server issues I wasn't able to do that. So I took last week to focus most of my time on making the level. I'm really happy with the results and would love to hear what you guys and gals think so far of Cosmoids. I'm also considering bringing it out to the public so that you can play it even if you haven't contributed to the fundraiser (as easy as that is) so that more people can have access to it and I can get more feedback. What do you guys think of that?

On top of the second level for Cosmoids, I also added Meinfoo and Timburr into the game and they will be distributed as giveaways and mystery gifts for this week.

I also made a lot of adjustments to the server code to speed things up and I'm pretty happy with the results so far. Some people tend to mention that the "new" server is not good. The thing is we never switched servers or got a new server. We are still in the same one, I've been making changes to the way things work to speed things up.

This week's update

New Story Level
This week my focus is to advance the story in PTD2. I'm really excited about this next part and hopefully I will have enough time to make it as good as it can be.

Shadow Moves
I will be adding some shadow moves from Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness that your shadow pokemon will be able to relearn. Right now I'm not sure how many, who will learn what, and what type of effectiveness the moves will have against other types but I will keep you posted throughout the week.

Mystery Gift and Giveaway
Like most weeks, there will be a Mystery Gift and Giveaway. I've been pondering about giving out both shiny and shadow versions of each on different days as something that I could do. Either way vote on the polls to decide what you will get next.

PTD1 to PTD2 Transfers - Legendary Pokemon Arrive!
A much requested transfer is that of legendary pokemon from PTD 1 to PTD2 and it is finally time! I will be adding Articune, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo and Mew to the transfer list this week!

Adopt Now for Trades
A feature I been wanting to try out for a while is for you guys to be able to put your pokemon up for adoption. Pretty much the way I'm seeing it now is that you can set an SnD coin price to your trade. A player that has SnD coins can either request a trade or straight up adopt your pokemon by paying your SnD price. You receive the coins and the other player receives the pokemon. With everything else that I have for this week I'm not sure if this will make it in time. Also you might be wondering why I don't use daily coins with this. The reason for that is the only way daily coins can exist is if they are hard to get or you can only get them at a certain rate per day. Allowing players to transfer daily coins from one account to another will open all sorts of exploits that I wish to avoid. I think this can be a great feature, what do you think?

Cosmoids
I try to move Cosmoids forward every week. I feel the more I work on it the more I want to keep working on it. I had a lot of fun just focusing on the second level. There are a few things that still need to be tweaked but I'm very excited for the future of the game. As the game becomes more developed over time, we will be talking about it more and more. For now you can play it at the funding rewards page in the PTD2 Trading Center. For this week we are tweaking the character graphic, making changes to level 1 to make it more compact and to the point, I will be figuring out ways to make the tutorial parts more understandable and easier to follow, and start work on level 3.

    1. Hey Sam, did Dan forward to you my E-Mail regarding a bug causing the duplication and triplication of my pokemons team?

      ReplyDelete
    2. that's pretty cool.
      not sure about the SnD but we'll see.
      And i love the return of the anagrams in the labels ;)
      Spoiler alert!

      ReplyDelete
    3. I think it would be better to have the mystery gift and giveaway to have shiny+shadow in one code... Because people overprice trades or will not let go of mystery gifts and giveaways at all, it makes it very hard to get the Pokemon you miss... It seems more fair to give shiny and shadow together with just one code so you enter it and get shiny male, shiny female, shadow male, and shadow female at once... Maybe it seems like a lot but it just seems unfair to give two different things in just one week's time... Maybe if the mystery gift and giveaway was 2 weeks and the first week was shiny and second was shadow... But 1 week is too short, many people couldn't get Feebas because there was not a lot of chances to get it.

      ReplyDelete
    4. yeah, if it duplicated or triplicated then thats a good thing, we won't delete them or anything so you can get rid of them or keep them if you like

      ReplyDelete
    5. spoilers indeed, glad somebody caught it :), what are you not sure about with the SnD?

      ReplyDelete
    6. Thanks just keep it mind ok.

      ReplyDelete
    7. But that makes them MORE rare because they're half as likely to get them as before! It's hard enough but now it's harder if it's half codes shadow and half codes shiny and even less people than before can get them...

      ReplyDelete
    8. everything is over valued in the trade center. I was having no luck in getting a shadow litwick by breeding with items and all anybody wanted for them were shiny rayquaza, shiny heatran, or shadow litwick AND shiny rayquaza.

      ReplyDelete
    9. I rather havingnhard to get them and they are rare then haveing them all over the poke center

      ReplyDelete
    10. You once mentioned about following different paths "light & dark", will this idea be in cosmoids?

      ReplyDelete
    11. Yes, you got around to them finally.
      Do them like XD on type effectiveness because a lot of the shadow moves are weaker than their regular versions to compensate for the blanket super-effective they have on all regular pokemon, like Shadow Chill only having 75 power where as Ice Beam has 90. Remember that shadow moves don't get the STAB. Shadow Unown should get a custom move called Shadow Power which has a 70 Sp. Atk power, 95 acc, and a 10% chance to inflict a random status condition.
      Maybe a custom move for Shadow Magikarp too, Shadow Flop(a splash executed with a shadowy aura. Spectacularly useless)

      We don't need it. I've over 200 berries, all from last year.

    14. thx man i was waiting for a mew or mewtwo following me around the maps!

      ReplyDelete
    15. The first 2 levels of Cosmoids was really good! Hope the next level will be good 2. keep up the good work!

      ReplyDelete
    16. I prefer the way to get shadow in PTD1, by buying with casino coins.

      ReplyDelete
    17. Mystery gifts and transfers are going to fast, there is still a lot to do in PTD 2: soft cap up to lvl40 or 50, new second gen. wild pokemons, new badges. Things beside the game complete quickly while things inside the game progress very slowly.

      ReplyDelete
    18. Hey Sam, you should let us decide what we want next. For example : you make a box and people type in what they want added in next, and people can vote for the best idea and you can add maybe the top 10 or 15 to go into the next update. I think it would be cool if the community could give you ideas if you're ever stuck.

      ReplyDelete
    19. Missingno. MasterApril 29, 2013 at 8:41 PM

      OK, a few things, Sam.

      1: I like the sound of the Adopt Now feature. I like it very much.



      2: YES! SHADOW MOVES! YEEEAAAAH!!!


      3: Remember that one time you took my suggestion to have a Mystery Gift poll for less-than-popular Pokémon? You know, stuff that's practically guaranteed to not win their respective polls? I suggest that we have more polls like those every so often. Otherwise, the game's just gonna get all the popular Pokémon first, and those of us who actually like stuff like Trubbish, Klink, Basculin, and Shuppet are gonna be waiting for months, maybe over a year, for their favorites to see the light of day.

      ReplyDelete
    20. hey sam, i posted before but got no response from you. In an up and coming update, can you make so that people can manipulate their trade requests, without the need to call the poemon back, and can you make it so that we can equip items onto our pokemon from the pokemon center.

      ReplyDelete
    21. Missingno. MasterApril 29, 2013 at 8:44 PM

      OH ARCEUS YES TO BOTH OF THESE.

      ReplyDelete
    22. Hey sam I dont know if anybody has asked about this but I want to know if having a shiny ditto breed with any shiny pokemon give u a higher change to get a shiny or shadow egg? since ditto transforms into an excact copy of the other pokemon...and if so does it also copy the shadow ones and giveu a higher shadow rate?? THNX 4 MAKIN THIS COOL GAME...

      ReplyDelete
    23. Yes he does he said so On his stream last week early morning Sunday at like 3 am

      ReplyDelete
    24. Hey sam, another idea i just had, i don't get to play very often and besides a hour or two here or there, a lot of my time is spent watching those reward videos and trading in the PC. Is there away to create a special area like the breeding center, like if you donate so much, you unlock a special function that allows you to place six pokemon in a special area at a time and for a set amount of time they spend in that area, they go up a level, and if they reach an evolution point while in the area, when you pick them up, it asks you if you want to evolve that pokemon or leave it be.

      ReplyDelete
    25. Sam help me there was an error with my game i made it to cinnabar island and when i saved my game went CRAZY mew and mewtwo were on my pokedex omanite and star was on and my starters were gone please help

      ReplyDelete
    26. That sounds like a great idea!

      ReplyDelete
    27. How did u make it ti cinnabar island it isnt even in the game yet.

      ReplyDelete
    28. is it just legendary because i dont have any :(

      ReplyDelete
    29. Sam I think that a second breeding slot would be a good idea and many people from the last blog liked it.

      ReplyDelete
    30. oh sux
      Do u want some

      ReplyDelete
    31. I can give you a mew and mewtwo if u want.

      ReplyDelete
    32. I know thats all the people want for simple giveaways legendary pokemon

      ReplyDelete
    33. BTW Sam are u ever going to put up your Pokemon for trade?

      ReplyDelete
    34. Also there is a bug with saving in ptd 2.

      ReplyDelete
    35. SO u did that Sam thx Sam

      ReplyDelete
    36. C'mon Sam give us a chance.

      ReplyDelete
    37. Ashyboy i am talking about ptd1 Duh cinnabar island is in KANTO!

      ReplyDelete
    38. Also another bug is when solosis uses psyshock on crobat at the
      policeman battle 1 it doesn't do damage it just goes through crobat like
      its nothing.

      ReplyDelete
    39. jokes, I knew that ;)

      ReplyDelete
    40. BTW u could've went on reply so its easier.

      ReplyDelete
    41. cool then what are the codes

      ReplyDelete
    42. Wierd. Must be a new bug because mine would regularly destroy that crobat, but that was before Sam launched his little Operation: Optimization.

      ReplyDelete
    43. hey sam i have an awesome idea how about trading costumes but still have them and transfer them to ptd2 and still have them

      ReplyDelete
    44. Sam;

      1) great game, I'm a fan;
      2) We all know that the storyline is good and we all like the new levels, but I think that you can add 1 or two new quest for train pokemon or/and get items. Create quest could be a way to open some of the houses of New Bark town or of the evacuated cities (ex: you meet a man in Route 30 that lived in Cherrygrove city, and when he leave, he forgot something in his house, and the player should go and return the item so he give you berries or something).

      3)The Storymode have grown since his introduction, or, the 1vs1 mode no. So, could you add some new levels, at least for won the 2nd badge.
      Sorry if I make some mistakes, english isn't my natal language.

      ReplyDelete
    45. Somebody AnonymousApril 29, 2013 at 10:02 PM

      Secret quests that Sam isn't going to tell us about!!! Discovery and adventure is needed.

      ReplyDelete
    46. Yes but without some of their strongest attacks due to the soft cap still blocked at level 35!

      ReplyDelete
    47. Except the hacked version of the game isn't working so it takes a couple hours each day grinding up 100000 pokedollars for daily gifts that may only grant you 50000 CCs meaning that it can take up to 6 days for one pokemon that may or may not be a repeat. Don't get me wrong that's how a got my Shadow Scyther, but damn that is a lot of work to do.

      ReplyDelete
    48. Alternate shiny and shadow for certain day is a great idea for Mystery gift but for giveaways we can have access only once, so, how to get both shiny and shadow?

      ReplyDelete
    49. Why not use the full XD concept: Shadow pokemon only able to learn shadow attacks untill they are purified by opening their minds on the battle field.
      + = Great story and long/hard mission / - When they are purified, you loose the shadow form.

      ReplyDelete
    50. Hey Sam, you have an impressive work this week.
      Sorry about giving negative thoughts too early from the previous blog. :)

      By the way, since your Cosmoids is at the earliest stage of the development, is there anything you want us to suggest?
      Like for example, names for animals, bugs and attacks and/or suggesting items that strengthens the user?

      ReplyDelete
    51. Ok, I'm only sayng that the 1vs1 mode should be developed too and it should be great to have other quest than the story line.

      ReplyDelete
    52. I forgot to say theat in my last comment (don't think that I'm tryng to make spam or something) but my 1rt comment don't explain about the story, the evacuated man is only an esample, and eventually we should won the 2nd badge (we have already one, and, because we already collected one, they should be others).

      ReplyDelete
    53. Got most of PTD1 shadow pokemon this way ( only mis Victini and the 3 dogs ) When you have a repeat, just have to trade it for another one. In PTD2, things are harder everybody want a Rayqaza for a simple shadow dunsparce.

      ReplyDelete
    54. Maybe I'm asking for too much, but when will you increase the soft level cap again?

      ReplyDelete
    55. Somebody AnonymousApril 29, 2013 at 10:57 PM

      Sam said that the 1vs1 mode is going to be suspended for now. The 2nd badge probably isn't going to be in any of the next few updates.


      Also, note that you can edit your comments if you want to.

      ReplyDelete
    56. Not everything is overpriced: you just need to look for the good deals. I've gotten more than half of the giveaways by trading regular Pokémon found in the wild.

      ReplyDelete
    57. Why not focus on STORY LEVEL?? instead of doing mystery gifts and giveaways all the time every week??, besides you yourself is complaining about the SERVER getting MESSED UP, so maybe we should take a break from M-GIFTS and G-aways? Please? I want more ACTION and STRATEGY MAKING here in PTD2 the same we had in PTD1, not this "trading all the time stuffs". . . XD

      ReplyDelete
    58. sam could you hurry up making the ptd2 game, I check it every day and almost every time, I get pissed off

      ReplyDelete
    59. Sam, could you take your time in making the PTD2 game? I want to reaffirm that quality is always better than speed.

      ReplyDelete
    60. Uh, how about he is doing the story level? Besides, the mystery gifts and the giveaways don't take that much extra time. If Sam adds a new level, likely he'll be adding more new pokemon than just those two. That said, I do agree that it is good and quite time that Sam does add the next level, and it would be nice if they were a bit more regular in coming out.

      ReplyDelete
    61. Just an FYI, Sam's optimization of the databases shouldn't have much to do with the battle mechanics if at all. The databases are about storing information for specific users/pokemon, not so much local constant data such as how moves work.

      ReplyDelete
    62. Are you really spending that much time for 100,000 pokedollars? Use payday, it is so much faster. Heck, if you've beaten the game (which you have if you're getting the top gift), then just catch a team of high level Rhydons, teach them payday, and go to a good level (like the water level right before Cinnabar). I use five payday pokemon and a raichu (who finishes off stragglers with discharge), and get around 90,000 pokedollars per time I beat the level.

      ReplyDelete
    63. Isnt the soft cap 35
      He will increase it in a couple of weeks possibly.

      ReplyDelete
    64. Hey whats Operation: Optimization?
      No it's only when solosis uses Psyshock when it doesnt work other pokemon destroy Crobat
      Theres also another bug with crobat but I prefer for him not to change it.

      ReplyDelete
    65. Sam Problem. I had transferred all my starters (shiny,reg,shadow) except my shadow charizard. Now when I see the pokedex, It does show that i never caught them! Please sam repair the PTD1 Pokedex.

    66. adopt for trades? what does that mean? trade your own pokemon for an adoption pokemon?

      ReplyDelete
    67. Then why did you state that cinnabar island isn't in the game? It is clearly in PTD, which is what we've agreed he was talking about.

      ReplyDelete
    68. Sam put it in the description. It is a new feature that you can set a SnD coin price to your trades.

    77. Number 1 way to level up pokemons
      step1 go to route 32 part 1
      step2 have a ditto in your party
      step3 fight with policeman
      step4 send out ditto and it will transform into crobat
      step5 let ditto faint
      step6 send out the pokemon you want to train
      step7 the crobat will not be able to move and you can kill it
      AND IT WORKS TRY IT!!!!

    82. Read Harry Potter and you'll get it. Read the series, not watch a movie.

      ReplyDelete
    83. I did some tests... it only works if your pokemon are on the LEFT side from Ditto (talking about the 6 slots here). It will work 100% if you put Ditto on the 6th slot and 0% if you put Ditto on the 1st slot. If Ditto is on the 3rd or 4th slot, as I said, it will only work if your pokemon are on the LEFT side from Ditto.

      ReplyDelete
    84. There will be all sorts of stupid ideas. Unless Sam checks all before.

      ReplyDelete
    85. Not exactly. But i guess its better than a separate pokedexs.

      ReplyDelete
    86. the end of the world isn't going to happen. they said it was in year 2000 it never happened even they said last year it never happened, so apparently it probably wouldn't happen.

    87. how can i see if i have got the good rod or not?
      i defeat those three fisher man pokemon long time ago. i don't know if it had count it?

      ReplyDelete
    88. Just stand in front of a water source and press space bar to see if you can use the rod or not.

    94. looking into it for this next update

      ReplyDelete
    95. this will be fixed in a future update, and you will get credit for any preevolutions of pokemon you have (even if you never had them)

      ReplyDelete
    96. at this point, your thoughts on what you see so far, plus everything you said :)

      ReplyDelete
    97. thanks for the feedback, 1vs1 mode is going to change drastically but I feel the story mode deserves more love right now

    98. we need costumes for ptd2

      ReplyDelete
    99. oh like the day care

      ReplyDelete
    100. it gives you the same amount of chance as having another shiny pokemon breeding

      ReplyDelete
    101. hmm kinda hard to do, the equip items part is more doable

      ReplyDelete
    102. 1 & 2 - thanks :)


      3- The problem with that is that people don't care about them so there aren't as many clicks and therefore the sponsor is not happy and I lose money :/ that's the truth of it

    103. I do that from time to time

      ReplyDelete
    104. you are welcome :)

      ReplyDelete
    105. it's still in the plans but I have to find some time for it, I think story mode needs some major love

      ReplyDelete
    106. I think the idea has faded a bit but I'll be sure to revisit and see if it is something that we will have the time to add in.


      Thanks! We are kind of worried that the new way of playing might not be as good as the plain tower defense or an action game, it is good to see that you like it.


      As far is controlling all the creatures, you will be limited to only one creature in the level at a time (you can switch them for a different one) so you only have 2 units to control at a time

    107. hahaha I hope to finish the game before then but it's going quite slow...

      ReplyDelete
    108. I don't think anybody would purify them since shadow are worth more than regular

      ReplyDelete
    109. Sam, just a question: will you make it possible to ask for Pokemon AND SnD coins? I mean, at the same time?

      Also, could you make it so that we can ask for daily coins as well?

      ReplyDelete
    110. What do you mean by "without the need to call the pokemon back"?
      Do you mean to be able to use them in the game while they are in the trading center?

      ReplyDelete
    111. Also Sam, please make it possible for us to release Pokemon in the game. It is quite annoying...

      ReplyDelete
    112. Errr. Why? What is the point of getting a shadow if they will end up not learning any other moves?

      ReplyDelete
    113. He's referring to the work Sam did with the servers after the big shutout a little big ago. He referred to it as optimization because that's what Sam has been doing: optimizing the way that the game and users interact with the huge amounts of data that have to be stored.

      ReplyDelete
    114. No shiny Mienfoo for those who already got shadow???

      ReplyDelete
    115. I mean you don't have to call the pokemon back from the your requests page in order to alter the request for that pokemon

      ReplyDelete
    116. WHATS THE NEW CODE!!!!!!!

      ReplyDelete
    117. trading is already hard if you want the give away pokemon, but Sam if you can request SnD coins it's gonna be so unfair, then people will request SnD coins for every pokemon they put up to trade.. And if you can't buy SnD coins you can't even trade, that is even more unfair than people requesting shadow pokemon.

      ReplyDelete
    118. Shadow unowns still get converted to normal.

      ReplyDelete
    119. I know :( I'd rather have shiny.

      ReplyDelete
    120. Actually, it's a simple matter of supply and demand. Suppose that everyone requests SnD coins as you fear might happen. Well, if people actually trade SnD coins for the pokemon, then I would say that you are in a rather good place. After all, you can do the same thing with the rare pokemon you earn or acquire, and thus get SnD coins to trade with other trainers without having to buy any at all. However, if no one trades the SnD coins, then the people who are actually serious about trading will realize that their pokemon just aren't selling, and as a result, will "lower" their prices to more reasonable offers. That's what happens all the time in the trading center, and I've gotten lots of good deals by simply waiting and checking often, or offering my own pokemon up for what I consider fair trades, and sometimes having to lower what I want.

    121. Create a second account, with a relatives email.

      ReplyDelete
    122. you can still offer a trade and they can still put request for pokemon to pokemon trading

      ReplyDelete
    123. yeah that is something that I've been planning to add

      ReplyDelete
    124. to your first question yes, to your second one no since it would make it very easy to exploit and get a bunch of daily coins quickly as I explained in the blog post

      ReplyDelete
    125. good point I'll work on this for the next possible giveaways

      ReplyDelete
    126. I didn't do it on purpose it was a glitch but I won't delete them

      ReplyDelete
    127. Thank you Sam for sharing my opinion but I suppose that you try to respond to the vox populi, however, hope more developments in the game for the next weeks.

      ReplyDelete
    128. Nah, that's cheating. If Sam didn't intend for us to get both, then I'm not going to try and work around it. The giveaways are limited on purpose.

      Hey Sam, will the code for Shiny Timburr today be reusable on Wednesday and so on for a Shadow Timburr? Or a different code and the shiny timburr one gets deactivated?

      ReplyDelete
    130. Okay, that makes sense. Yeah, that sounds good.

      ReplyDelete
    131. Sam, you said 1v1 will be changed drastically. Can you update 1v1 one week and the Story mode another week? a third week could be added for soft caps, adding places like buildings, and other stuff!!! Also, whats up with the labels? It says:
      hmeeetrw snwi! Does that mean _______ wins??? What is the first word?

      ReplyDelete
    132. Harry Potter sucks!

      ReplyDelete
    133. I actually like the idea of purification, since in XD if you purified a Shadow Pokemon, it would know moves that aren't in it's moveset. I think Sam should add that factor to the game, so we have a reason to purify. Also, like in Colosseum and XD, you should add Shadow Legendaries (like XD0001, a.k.a. Shadow Lugia).

      Before it starts, I'm going to have to say:


      DO NOT COMPLAIN ABOUT WHAT POKEMON IS NOT WINNING AND THAT IT SHOULD BE!!! IF IT ISN'T WINNING, IT SHOULDN'T BE WINNING. END OF DISCUSSION!!!


      OK, I'm done.

      ReplyDelete
    140. It works with each Pokemon. Put a not too strong Pokemon on the 6th spot and start the fight against crobat with it, when this pokemon is out put another of the 5 other pokemon on his left and crobat will be unable to fight them.
      That's how I leveled up all my pokemons so far (but shhh don't say it to Sam)

    145. yes i agree people just say

      ReplyDelete
    146. You will be complaining yourself in a little time

      ReplyDelete
    147. ok thanks sam! I was worried about my pokedex and stopped transfering the pokemon......

      ReplyDelete
    148. There's nothing to complain about. There will be a Round 2 polls after all types have been chosen.
      Then more rounds until we get all or most of the pokemon. :)

      ReplyDelete
    149. When i catch a shadow unown in the entei level, it appears in the storage but when i save & exit, then come back then the shadow unown is there but has lost its shadowness i.e. turned into a normal one...

    152. Didn't u say that its inhumane in one of your blogs before.

      ReplyDelete
    153. But can u change the rods when u want.

      ReplyDelete
    154. Yeah, I think Sam already knows NOW because he probably read all the posts here. He's either gonna let it pass because he meant that or fix right away.

      ReplyDelete
    155. BTW that's also how I leveled up most of my Pokemon of the high exp.

      ReplyDelete
    156. He actually probably will.

      ReplyDelete
    157. why'd u say that.
      Pretty random
      Just sayin.

      ReplyDelete
    158. Oh now I know what that means.

      From Snape.

      ReplyDelete
    159. Ohhh now I get it thx.

      ReplyDelete
    160. It was a pretty good glitch.

      ReplyDelete
    161. Maybe it's a spoiler for PTD2? Or maybe Sam wanted to give us scrambled letters so we can unscramble it for no reason at all.

      Sam, something's wrong, you said we'll get SHINY TIMBURR today but, I only got SHADOW VERSIONS?

      ReplyDelete
    163. can we pleaaaaaase just have shiny mystery gifts back :(

      ReplyDelete
    164. Sam, why not also make the be able to transfer the three legendary dogs to?

      ReplyDelete
    165. I read that some people out of nowhere, their Pokemon were duplicate, for example, he/she had two pikachu's, but now he/she has four pikachus, this a bug ? what will happened ? if the person trade one of the duplicate in the future he/she lose the original ?

      Sorry for the english :X

      ReplyDelete
    166. if the bug happened then you get to keep any duplicated pokemon, I won't delete them

      ReplyDelete
    167. I will, it takes a while to add new one to be transferable

      ReplyDelete
    168. next one I will do shiny with one day shadow

      ReplyDelete
    169. it's based on the server, so it's shadow from now on

      ReplyDelete
    170. not yet I hope I can add this in the future

      ReplyDelete
    171. I said it was inhumane to sell them but not to adopt, it's all the same thing it's just about how you word it

      ReplyDelete
    172. I'll check it out thanks!

      ReplyDelete
    173. Let's make it reversal: Any standard pokemon should have the ability to learn shadow attacks by accomplishing some actions into the game, when a standard pokemon has learned 4 shadow attacks it becomes SHADOW.

      For the players who don't want to keep the 4 shadow attacks, they should have the possibility to relearn normal attacks after the process without loosing the shadow form of their Pokemon.
