Back in Action!
It's good to be back! First I want to thank you all for all the kind words that you gave Zaira and I. We had a wonderful wedding and honeymoon. It was a much needed break from work. I'm fully refreshed and ready to make some content!

PTD2 Update 1.49 Released!
I just finished a new update it contains a lot of goodies for you guys and gals.

  • Pokemon Size Adjustments - This was a long time coming. Usually I would resize pokemon manually and more or less estimate how big or small they should be. What I did was changed it so the sizes are automatically figured out using programming instead of me doing it manually. From 0 to 10 feet units will scale at a faster pace than from 10 or higher feet. If it all scales the same you end up with giant Steelix. So I used rattata to figure out 1 foot and your character represents 5 feet. Then I took my Steelix size and made that the measure for how the bigger pokemon should scale. The outcome is that sizes should be more consistent now. Some pokemon got smaller and some got bigger but should be accurate to the game.
  • Soft Level Cap Increased to 36 - Added 11 new attacks to reach the 36 soft level cap. Please note that pokemon that can learn these attacks will be able to learn them even if they are learned at a higher level than the soft cap.
    • X-Scissor, Megahorn, Shadow Claw, Flash Cannon, Dizzy Punch, Psycho Cut, Whirlpool, Stone Edge, Venoshock, Blaze Kick, and Sludge Bomb.
  • The promised Giveaway Pokemon - This coming week I will be giving away Shiny Tepig, Gothita and Electrike.
  • PTD1 to PTD2 Transfers - 15 new pokemon to transfer over! Go to the PTD1 Pokemon Center to transfer your pokemon from ptd1 to ptd2. Keep in mind you can't transfer them back to PTD1 once you transfer them over.
    • Ponyta, Rapidash, Magnemite, Magneton, Farfetch'd, Doduo, Dodrio, Seel, Dewgong, Grimer, Muk, Shellder, Cloyster, Drowzee, and Hypno.
That's all I have for today, stay tuned for our next blog on Monday! As always let me know what you think!

  1. What do you want for the next update?

    ReplyDelete
  2. Hi Sam thanks for the awesome update and new transfers. Was wondering if you can make porygon z transferable since I have a bunch of shiny ones in ptd 1 . Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  3. yeah in the near future

    ReplyDelete
  4. Ilex Forest, New Evolutions, Soft Level Cap to 45 and a way to catch a regular celebi in Ilex Forest would be nice:)
    But at the end it's your decision what you want in the game.
    Keep that in mind:)

    ReplyDelete
  5. So, is the headbutt mechanics from Gold, Silver, Crystal, Heart Gold and Soul Silver, is coming up pretty soon?

    ReplyDelete
  6. make celebi normal to catch but hard and only one celebi

    ReplyDelete
  7. coul you make the 3 legendary dogs transferable and continue with the mew3 plot

    ReplyDelete
  8. yeah I plan to add it to the game

    ReplyDelete
  9. closer to the end of the game

    ReplyDelete
  10. 1v1 will be worked on later

    ReplyDelete
  11. Soft level cap to 45 might be too much, I have most evolutions done which ones are you referring to? Celebi would be tricky

    ReplyDelete
  12. Literally 50 new moves to get to 45

    ReplyDelete
  13. Sam since I have a lot too ask you,
    About the future updates, But i cant ask you on the blog as there are already to many comments.
    If you you had time could you join this website www.edmodo.com,
    Sign up as a student.
    All you have to do is right the group code which is w1k98s. (NO CAPS)

    Then username and password,
    Email is optional,
    Then finally first name and last name.

    ReplyDelete
  14. just llex forest =D

    ReplyDelete
  15. Maybe some more transfers.

    ReplyDelete
  16. In just 50 minutes all tepigs vanish,
    No fair......

    ReplyDelete
  17. I have one for trade, you can buy it for 3 Sam and Dan coins...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Sam willl you be adding these sometime later.
    http://www.serebii.net/xy/megaevolutions.shtml

    ReplyDelete
  19. Nevermind, its already gone.

    ReplyDelete
  20. You made a website just for talking to Sam.

    ReplyDelete
  21. How can he add things which are not even released yet!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yo wanna join my group page known as ptd edmodo.

    ReplyDelete
  23. How does it help me?
    What do you exactly do.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Well me and a group of 10 or so,
    Share latest information about games like pokemon, Dragonfable, Hero Fighters,Little Fighters and many more games.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Its sounds a bit nerdy,
    Whats the name of this website anyway

    ReplyDelete
  26. Its called edmodo,
    Just visit this and you'll see for yourself.
    And I assure you its not nerdy.

    ReplyDelete
  27. What you're making a website just to talk to Sam.

    ReplyDelete
  28. No, Technically its a group page for learning and stuff.
    And I didnt make it.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Its asking me for a group code.
    And why does it say Sign up as teacher/student.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Thats because it is a learning website where teacher teaches student online.
    But we use it as game guideline page.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Why are you talking to yourself?

    ReplyDelete
  32. Then maybe40 would be better?
    Evolutions: Shiny Stone for Togekiss. It was often requested and in Ilex Forest a special stone who evolves Eevee into Leafeon.
    And by Celebi you could add a special way to get a GSBall when we place it on the shrine in the forest we are getting back to the present Ilex Forest and we are seeing Celebi defending against a Mewthree clone army. Now we have to defend tha Celebi and when we win it wants to join our team. It could aslo be a story event:)
    I hope you like the ideas.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Do you have a second one I would trade you a shiny totodile?

    ReplyDelete
  34. It vanished already in 20 minutes...

    ReplyDelete
  35. Do you have an Shiny Chimchar?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Its an infernape,
    But its Shiny.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Alright the code is 1520e915d6d879

    ReplyDelete
  38. I'll give you shiny chimchar and shiny bagon

    ReplyDelete
  39. Alright, send me the request

    ReplyDelete
  40. Please wait a minute...

    ReplyDelete
  41. I sent you request.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Something I've been meaning to ask. Will you add moves to natural movesets that were only included in B2W2? Like Magnemite learning Flash Cannon naturally in B2W2 but not in BW.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Do you have a shiny litwick?

    ReplyDelete
  44. The new movepool is one of the reasons why I like B2/W2 much more than B/W :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I might do that when X and Y come out since they might change yet again

    ReplyDelete
  46. possibly hah, could be fun to add, the biggest obstacle is getting the graphics

    ReplyDelete
  47. that's a pretty interesting idea

    ReplyDelete
  48. Sam could you join Edmodo.
    Details are below

    ReplyDelete
  49. Actually you already have an account.

    Check your email. (sotero86@gmail.com)

    ReplyDelete
  50. And maybe to get a GSBall we have to show Kurt a special Pokemon and as a thanks we get the GSBall(like Bellossom and the flowers)

    ReplyDelete
  51. Don't say you made for sam an account without asking him for his permission:O

    ReplyDelete
  52. No,
    I just sent him an email for conformation.

    ReplyDelete
  53. pokemontowerdefence.webs.com

    ReplyDelete
  54. But I think you know a better to get GSBall in your game right?

    ReplyDelete
  55. Man, i cant wait for Ambipom the most tactically spastic attacker, Forretress, the best Physical Wall in the game that use all the entry hazards and Rapid Spin, and Heracross, the all time best Physical attacker, in the game second to Technician Scizor who spams powerful Bug Bites and Bullet Punches.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Yeah, but Sam's gonna have more work like setting up Trapinchs level-up moves like Earthquake and Superpower *which I have a Trapinch with an Everstone to let it get really good moves when it levels up later on*

    ReplyDelete
  57. Uh huh and its gonna be alot of researching but, the thing is we have alot of powerful Pokemon like Agiligross (its Metagross with Agility as its set up move) and all out attackers from ridiculously powerful dragons like Salamence and Garchomp. So therefore, implementing the mega pokemons is tedious and we got really good Pokemons, so implemented them when were like in Mahogany, Blackthorn Gym or possibly at the Elite Four.

    ReplyDelete
  58. DUDE Don't make a teacher's account. I did that once and I got caught by my teacher. Turns out it was illegal. I got in a huge amount of trouble. Don't do it!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Anyone want a Bagon?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Code 1520eb5b862068

    ReplyDelete
  61. I'd trade it for a Shiny Roggenrola

    ReplyDelete
  62. Legendary DOGS/BEAST for transferring with chocolate sprinkles on top. XD

    ReplyDelete
  69. please advance the story mode. ive been waiting forever!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Sorry Ikaw, but He canceled the avatar chat due to lack of moderators and the Shiny Victini event is nothing but waste of time on implementing it in PTD1 ever since it was inactive back in May 2012.

    ReplyDelete
  71. I was accustomed to the all pokémons have one size that now I feel strange xD

    ReplyDelete
  72. Was there a shadow bagon giveaway? if there wasn't pls don't make it because I already bred one so if u make a giveaway it'll be a waste for me.

    ReplyDelete
  73. sam pls upgrade the story mode!!
    i want to win my 3rd badge

    ReplyDelete
  74. hey sam how about a chichou mystery gift and headbutt for caught heracross

    ReplyDelete
  75. sam i was scam by a person would you do anything for that ? his account name is dudet

    ReplyDelete
  82. i got a shadow idea ! we have to talk to kurt want to give some evolution stones to kurt he ask use to delivery them to a person that person {may be anyone and on any map (sam have to think about it) } after we delivery them to him. he will give us 3 shadow starters to deliver to kurt , after we deliver it to kurt he will give any one of that shadow starters (of our choice)and gives us a new poke ball

    like if you think this idea is good

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  84. surf to go further in the cave

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  86. yeah that was a fun thing to do

    ReplyDelete
  87. I know it's a little weird at first

    ReplyDelete
  88. it's hard to really confirm it

    ReplyDelete
  89. avatar chat is tricky cause it's hard to moderate

    ReplyDelete
  90. no I don't think so

    ReplyDelete
  91. Speaking of that^ .Maybe we should transfer now the "hitmons" so we could have Tyrogue and Hitmontop to beat Whitney's MILTANK. XD

    ReplyDelete
  92. sam i love eevees so pleese a eeve gift and a shiny one sorry if writing errors im not good whit this

    ReplyDelete
  93. damn 40 min after the giveaway and already no more piggy... another will happen or do we go to next pokemon ?

    ReplyDelete
  94. Jackie, we already got really good fighting types so, transferring Hitmonchan and Lee isn't necessary. Seriously, we have Bulk Up Conkeldurr, Mienshao and No Guard Machamp, who spams happy over with 100% accuracy Dynamic Punch.

    ReplyDelete
  95. please make him give it back because it want it it is a level 100 moltres and level 1 articuno

    ReplyDelete
  96. Sorry Raja, but Sam doesn't allow people to get their accounts back from scammers. Sorry Pal.

    ReplyDelete
  97. I wrote in my post that after putting the GSBall into the shrine we're sent back to the present.

    ReplyDelete
  98. He said after the shiny charmander mystery gift that he would never do a Pokemon as Mystery Gift(or Giveaway) that you can purchase in the Pokemon Adoption.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I can't believe I have to explain this. I want them(Tyrogue&Hitmontop) not just for the GYM but for the completion of JOHTO POKEDEX.

    any map (sam have to think about it) } after we delivery them to him. he
    will give us 3 shadow starters to deliver to kurt , after we deliver it
    to kurt he will give any one of that shadow starters (of our choice)and
    gives us a new poke ball and sam could you add a battle center to battle with other trainers ?

    ReplyDelete
  126. that move doesn't fall within the soft level cap

    ReplyDelete
  127. Sam I think the automatic sizing idea is a great one if it saves you more work. However there seems to be a few glitches in the system. From what I have seen so far and read in the chat, there are some Pokemon who have an unrealistic size. Some big ones are that slowpoke are literally bigger than the player and that nine tails and salamance are tiny. Some minor size changes also include a examine seeming slightly too big and charizard appearing to be slightly small. I hope this helps.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Hey Sam I have an Idea for Ilex forest in the past, so since we've gone back in time team rocket is still around hey? So maybe for Ilex forest we could find team rocket trying to catch celebi and we have to help celebi! and later on in the game maybe Gold can help us since he is meant to force team rocket into breaking apart (by the way this just occured to me, but considering on what version we chose at the start out of silver or gold, shouldnt it be a Shadow Ho-Oh event for gold instead of Shadow Lugia? And for silver shadow Lugia instead of Shadow Ho-oh? Just some ideas! Keep up the great work!!! oh and lastly maybe we can meet the kimono girls? Bye!

    ReplyDelete
  129. I already got one, but thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Can I have a piggy toooo?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete

  140. Team Rockt was destroyed by Gold BEFORE he became the Champion

    ReplyDelete
  141. You should look on Dunsparce and Ekans.

    ReplyDelete
  142. You might do an battle center for both Pokemon tower defense 1 and 2 this wil make people battle eachother. If you will do this dont forget to put an lvl cap for each ''challenger'' 30-50 pokemons fight eachother etc


    If you have any reply`s i try to answer them as fast as possible ;)

    ReplyDelete
  143. Sam you should make a Battle center so people can earn points by winning and lose them aslo and with the points they earn they can get prizes like shiny pokemon

    ReplyDelete
  144. ok :D but you need to wait till i finish breeding D:

    ReplyDelete
  145. gotta finish breeding and also another guy wants it in their collection

    ReplyDelete
  146. hmmmmmmmmmm, let me finish breeding tepig before i do dat

    ReplyDelete

  153. Sam, can you make it possible to transfer dratini and evs?
    I really want dragonite on my ptd2 team!

    ReplyDelete
  154. LOL... I think you should make it so that the shadows are more like items than pokemon when you deliver them.

    ReplyDelete
  155. why is ditto taller than steelix?

    ReplyDelete
  156. never give out your information

    ReplyDelete
  157. sam could you make an update more faster

    ReplyDelete
  158. even bigger, steelix is still a giant compared to gyarados

    ReplyDelete
  159. sam can you make the th/hm please!!!!(:

    ReplyDelete
  160. please answer my question please

    ReplyDelete
  161. and you can make the third gym please ok?? thanks yery very mats

    ReplyDelete
  162. and can you make the third gym ? ok? thanks very very much

    ReplyDelete
  163. steelix is much bigger than gyarados

    ReplyDelete
  164. surf to go further in the cave and flash to light up dark cave

    ReplyDelete
  165. Sam, you know that every time we are in the strongest pokemon tower defense, right? So I think that in every update that you include a stage you'd better try to make each one more difficult than the other for that we will not be too strong and we pass the stages very easily and the game end up getting boring. So that's just ma suggestion. One more thing you could do a giveaway of shiny mew and mewtwo? is that I would love to have one of these!!

    ReplyDelete
  166. He said that he doesn't want to give away pokemon that you can purchase in Pokemon Adoption

    ReplyDelete
  167. -_-' look at the size comparison of the gyarados after the shipwreck in the anime, you'll see they're sortof the same size

    ReplyDelete
  168. haha the anime isn't the best at showing accurate sizes, they made them bigger or smaller as they saw fit

    ReplyDelete
  169. now i checked on veekun, gyarados is still big, but he's about 2 thirds the height of steelix

    ReplyDelete
  170. a battle center would be great

    ReplyDelete
  171. a battle center would rock this game

    ReplyDelete
  172. I have an extra shiny charmeleon and shiny ivysaur, wanting a legendary dog or a vicinti any takers?
