Moving Forward one step at a time
It has been almost a month since I last wrote a blog post, making Pokemon Tower Defense changed my life quite a bit but the changes in the last few months have had a greater impact on me than anything else in my life and they aren't done. What changes are you talking about Sam? The biggest change was moving out from my parent's house. The move itself wasn't that bad besides having my computers stop working for a bit. The transition has been harder. You go from a place where most of the responsibilities are split among several people living in a home to just you. You are responsible for everything and everything takes time. Time away from doing the things you were used to doing. After about a month I feel like I'm getting used to it and I'm able to split my time effectively so that I can create content for you guys and girls. My wedding in also very near (less than 2 months away) luckily we have most of the preparations done and now it will be all about the final details. It has been a fun journey and I look forward to actually getting the wedding done. For the honeymoon I will be away for 2 weeks, so there won't be any updates during that time since I won't be around. That is why I'm not taking breaks now and I try to keep pushing forward one step at a time.

This week's update
For this week I really want to keep advancing the story mode of the game. We have been stuck at one badge for such a long time! I think it's time to reach Azalea Town and get our second badge! Along the way we will travel through South Route 32, Union Cave and Route 33. There will be new pokemon to catch, a new item to buy and some new PTD1 to PTD2 transfers! 

One of the pokemon that you can catch is Slowpoke. Slowpoke will have a chance to be holding a King's rock and that will be the only way to get one for now so look out for that. You will be able to evolve Slowpoke into Slowking and Poliwhirl into Politoed by trading them with the King's Rock so look forward to that.

Also this update we will finally be adding the Cosmoid Fundraiser rewards for those who donated 10 or more they will be able to choose one of the cosmoid starters for their PTD2 collection!

As usual we will also have the mystery gift and the giveaway pokemon. Right now it looks like Poison will win this week.
