A Shadow Pokemon has appeared! Trainer Pass! My focus! Talent!

Want to get the Shiny Starters? Shiny Zorua? Shiny legendary dogs? Shiny Mew? or any other shiny pokemon in the game? Adopt them today using SnD coins! Click here for more info.

Visit the PTD: Pokemon Center - a place to trade pokemon, get your Daily Code, adopt Pokemon, view your items and change your avatar!

Welcome to the Sam and Dan Games Developer Blog!

A Shadow Pokemon has appeared!
I'm making a big change for PTD2, shadow pokemon can show up just like shiny pokemon in the game, allowing you to complete your collection if you haven't had great luck with breeding.

Membership has evolved into.... Trainer Pass! Get it today!
A while back I talking about having a membership plan that you guys and gals could subscribe to and get some great member's only features. The plan at the time was to make it a low monthly fee but have changed my mind since then. It will be a one time fee and you will have the features activated forever!

So let's talk about what you get:
  • Increased chance for Shiny/Shadow pokemon to appear in the wild
  • No ads while you play the game
  • Get a copy of shiny giveaway pokemon automatically every week
  • Faster Breeding - Breed with only one visit instead of 2, essentially breed something everyday!
  • Faster Leveling - Get twice the experience on every battle!
  • Weekly Giveaways for pass holders only
You get all of this for only $1.99! One time payment!

Gym Challenge Battles
On twitter I've been talking about Gym Challenge Battles, these will be similar to Challenge Mode in PTD1, my thoughts now is that you don't get to bring your own pokemon. I will give you a list of pokemon and items to choose from for each battle and you will have to figure out what is the best combination.

PTD2 on Mobile
Also on Twitter I showed the first screenshots of PTD2 on my phone. I want to bring PTD2 for your phones and tablets (you will have to install them directly since PTD is not allowed on app stores). I must also warn that PTD2 was not designed for mobile so it might run slow or it might break on certain places. The files will be completely free so there won't be any risk on your side.

Champions TD Level 1
Champions is changing a lot, I'm doing away with mercenary units in favor of having your whole army consist of units that you have recruited to your guild. I've also changed the menus quite a bit and started the story part and character selection parts.

I've also decided to add choices to the game, I posted some screenshots on twitter showing what kinds of decisions you have to make. The choices you make will make your character either side with light or dark which is a way of saying evil and good. Your choices will also determine how the story turns out and which companions will join you on your journey. Once you make a choice and save the game that choice will be set in stone for that profile so be very sure of what you pick. (Not happening anymore, you will have choices but they won't determine the story.)

We are always on the lookout for amazing talent. If you have skills in 2D art, 3D art, Programming in Action Script, or Unity 3D, or any other special skill you think we need let us know! We aren't actively looking for anybody at the moment but we are always open for people that will work great with us.  If you are interested send us a portfolio with your work or a resume with your experience and also a brief paragraph with why you want to work with us to

Thank you so much for all your support, the reality is that I can't do this without your support! Thank you! As always let me know what you think! Sam out!


  1. rewards is very high prize...

    Deoxys cost 275... And if you increases the price of 25 in 25 ... The final cost of ultimate legendary is +1110: /

    Might not make you go getting costing "now" less? Or at least the shinies/shadows...
    Please, check the prizes...
    PS: Gym challenge it's very awesome!

  2. Shadows appearing in the wild like shiny pokemon will help with getting your collections complete, also they won't always go up by 25 since like you mentioned it might pass the limit of pokemon created :)

  3. Who's doing the music for Champions TD? If someone's already about to do it...

  4. hi everyone... i m giving up my all pokemon here is my trainer id : 5414685
    u can adopt as well as trade them..... adoption range
    1snd - regular shinys
    2snd - rare shinys
    3snd - super rare and some legends
    5 snd-legends including victini rayquaza and heatran .... hope u get wat u want nd there will be another give away too after this nd that will contain all my best pokes

  5. Here is mine if anyone wants to trade 799398. Send a request disregarding my wanted pokemon and I might accept.

  6. Hello everyone.

    I'm looking for the following Shadow Pokémon : Azurill, Budew, Bonsly, Mime Jr., Munchlax, and Mantyke.

    They must all be non-HoF.

    I can pay a lot for them, or give you some of my rare Pokémon in exchange if you want.

    Also, here's my trainer ID : 1985290. I have lots of Regular, Shiny, and Shadow Pokémon for 1 SnD coin each. You can also offer something equivalent to 1 SnD coin (or more) if you don't have SnD coins, and I may accept your offer.


  7. How to download ptd 2 in mobile

  8. I dont think you can download it yet he still hasn't finished.

  9. Sam, will the Trainer Pass also work for future games like Champions TD ?

  10. Thanks for the trades guys hope you like them. Just saying I probably wont accept a pokemon like pidgey for one of my shadows or shinies.

  11. Since trainer pass is a one time payment, it will only work on PTD 2, but we might have something similar for champions

    Weekly contest.. I meant like weekly giveaways! I need to change that haha, I'll be giving away daily coins, or snd coins or rare pokemon

    Hope that answers everything for you!

  12. not ready yet but once it is I will provide the file, I think you will need an app that will let you install the file

  13. The prizes are very high, and no, shadow wild not help complete pokedex and obtain rewards. :/

    For examples:
    Regigias (300):
    Regular: 222 players obtained.
    Shiny: 59 players obtained.
    Shadow: 13 players obtained.

    Inclusive, regigias regular are obtained a Little group...

    REWARDS ARE HIGH. Vert high... Please sam
    as you already asked in the previous post and check them make them more accessible.
    The rewards are high, and I think that part of a group they get super small, and similar prices, or is attempted.
    For my part even get regular (though Cresselia and not enough get up to here, I have only 301 regulars ... And shinies / shadows and not will try to complete them, too high for anything ... And I have 4 shadows .. .) xD

  14. ~Pokeballs~
    When a shiny comes there shows "A Shiny Pokemon Has Appered Capture it with any pokeball" but theres only pokeball no other types of pokeballs but i saw space bellow the pokeball for a long time i thought you will update ultra balls,great balls etc but they were not updated why.

    ~Mega Evolutions~
    Ptd 2 is a x and y fan made game in x and y there are mega evolutions in X and Y but in ptd 2 theres only mega menetric ptd 2 is a x and y fan made game so it should have the other mega evolutions too.

  15. (Trainer ID: 5786451) i am not forcing you sam but ptd 2 is a fan made game and it has mega evolutions so many of them are mega evolution fans if there is other megas the will will be a complete x and y fan made game.

    Thank You

  16. no, do not ask that Give but if that is more just. Look at the examples set. Think that even lowering the serious half a gift? Not at all. If even the regulars have just been obtained!
    That some would hate the business of selling them for 20sndcoins? Tough.In the other post was asked, and was well received.
    Are not asked to give it to 50, but if I lower it to be more easily obtainable. And just over 1 try get them all.

  17. Anyone got a Shadow Hawlucha to trade? I somehow missed a lot of the Gen 6 shadows!

  18. that's what I a using, but says it wrong code

  19. I trade shiny golett for a shiny snivy or piplup. I don't accept other offers:

  20. I'll def be adding more mega evolutions in the near future

  21. different pokeballs, I never found a fun way to add them without over complicating the gameplay

  22. @samOtero I used a deevolution in magmar and not appear magby... why?

  23. Is that why Pokemon like Sudowoodo and Mantine don't deevolve into their baby forms, or is that on purpose?

  24. sam thnx for add cresselia and delcatty , are good pokes really ,i am just a little sad for not learn moonblast and play rough but still are lol pokes and the price hof are good yeah! thnx ;P

  68. how about a victini lvl 110

  69. plz will you accept my victini for 12 snd coins? plzzzzzzzzz

  70. Do you have a regular Minun? I have a regular Plusle to trade for it.

  71. hello sam are you here

  72. hello @samOtero :
    I've had an idea for the gym mode:
    You can choose the way you want, the first is as you said, similar to the challenges.
    And the 2nd is, you can make your team with pokemons captured: and trained
    - So you do the game once you defeat Mewthree has no end, and give an incentive to go catch more pokemon, and level up. Once you defeat Mewthree "lost" interest capturing pokemons (except for the HoF, and I think everyone will get xD), and in particular no longer makes meaning to level up your team.

  73. can you make people able to batlle each other
    plz sam.That way i think the game will get more interesting and people will be able to test their skills and learn new strategies

  74. i want the shiny heatren plz
    i trade it for shiny/shadow lugia and ho oh ( both of them) or for a victini
    if you have and a rayquaza tell me plz

  80. you can get munchlax by reeding two snorlax with female hold full incense

  81. i know how to clone too.Can you plz give me legendary X and Y pokemon plz
    i trade you whatever you want (if i have it)

  82. Hi, I can't move click my Pokemons on the poke storage, can't do anything in the Pokedex. Also I can't leave both things, I click and click but nothing happens. I'm the only one
