Trainer VS!
A much requested feature will make an appearance in Pokemon Tower Defense 2. You will be able to battle other trainers in 1v1 battles! Here is how it works:

Battle other Trainers
  • In the Story Mode in the game pick 3 pokemon in the order that you want them to come out with the attacks that you want them to have.
  • Pick from available command styles (This will determine what pattern of attacks your pokemon will use when battling other trainers. The default and only one available when I realease will be to do the first attack once then switch to the second attack. More will be added in the future. Fun fact: This is the behavior of a lot of the enemies you fight in the game.)
  • Pick Ability for that Pokemon.
  • After you do that go to your Pokepad and press Trainer VS press the battle button and you will be paired up with another trainer to battle!
Once you get into a battle you won't get to switch out your pokemon or change attacks. You will have to rely on the order that you place them in and the attacks, abilities and command style you picked in order to win the battle.

Eventually there will be different things like different ranks and different avatars you can win for this mode! So look forward to that!

Champions Item Variety
A much needed feature will be added to Champions TD. Item Variety! What does it mean you ask? Well it means that the same item can now have different stats. For example you can get a Sword of the Bear that has stamina and strength or you can get the same Sword but it will be called Sword of the Wolf and instead of stamina it will just have strength but more of it. This will add more variety and more reasons to possibly replay levels to get the loot just the way you want it. If the loot isn't right then you can put it up for Auction or search for the item in the Auction House that has the stats you want.

Auction House Opening!
Speaking of the Auction House, after a looooonggg lonnnggg looonnggg time the Auction House is almost ready to be opened! I look forward to it so I hope you guys do to!

Lots to do this week so keep checking out my progress and cheer me on Twitter!

  2. this is lookin hawt! can't wait! now i just need a map or something for ptd2 so i know where im supposed to go XD

    ReplyDelete
  3. Do you think you could make the yeti look more like this? http://t.co/CV3cKJe79X It's face currently looks unnatural in relation to the rest of the game.

    When PTD2 is done will you focus on CTD for a while or start another project and do 2 at once again?

    ReplyDelete
  4. I honestly do not see any use in multiplayer. Existing showdown ... And that was in the pTD1, not that I had much success. An unnecessary update. :/

    ReplyDelete
  5. will be different from ptd1 multiplayer

    ReplyDelete
  6. I think somewhere in between can work, I do agree that it is a little off. When PTD2 is done I plan to stick to ChampsTD but at some point I will start working on a follow up

    ReplyDelete
  7. Will there be any banned pokemon for multiplayer like primal reversion Kyogre?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Awesome, Great to hear about both things.

    The yeti is frowning and I get that's probably because the game say's it's sad it lost it's toy that you use to recruit it but once it's recruited it shouldn't be frowning anymore, plus it's the only thing that looks forward.

    Also I cannot wait till CTD is the main focus.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Are there going to be tiers like Smogon or something like that?
    Thanks

    Trade with me guyz, looking for shiny dragon and shiny horsea, legendary (doesnt need to be shiny)

    ReplyDelete
  11. Man every blog post we get someone new to disqus.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Sam will the Multiplayer actually look like how it does in the pic above?

    ReplyDelete
  13. is there every going to be a ptd3?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Wait ptd1 has multiplayer?What link?

    ReplyDelete
  15. I need victini.

    ReplyDelete
  16. this is awesome

    ReplyDelete
  17. you can also add mega evolution stones as prize

    ReplyDelete
  18. I think not. That is a screenshot from the game.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Sincerly, exist a lot of other updates:
    1- More mega-evolutions

    2- Included side-quest for obtain a rare pokemons (for example if you win a "trainer", and use a shiny team, win a rare shiny, and used a shadow team, win rare shine).

    3- More gym challenges.

    Game is lineal, and it's fun for 4-5 hours, but... You win tournament, and bye. Game is finish. At the most complete pokedex, but a regular pokedex in 5-10 hours, it's complete (i complete for examen in 6hours regular pokedex).

    Existing showdown, the update is unnecesary. And useless.It would be better to concentrate on other updates, but ... Hopefully not a failure as was that of pTD1, although different. :/

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yesbut CTD and Cosmoids will come first.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Congratulations. This was the worst "gratefulness" I have ever seen.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I have some Victinis, What's the ID?

    ReplyDelete
  23. When you say that you need a map, you mean a map of the region? If that's it, just search for a Johto Region map.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Any of the old boys still play this game? #ThrowbackThursday

    ReplyDelete
  25. My idea! Finally used!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Yeah that would be awesome.Also add the items that can change certain pokemons to other forms.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Just state your ID or offer some pokemons iny my ID so we can have a trade :3 Trainer ID: 1177479

    ReplyDelete
  28. Which one's that?

    ReplyDelete
  29. I know its from X & Y but dont know why.

    ReplyDelete
  30. i had that idea too
    about the 1vs1 between trainers and the prizes several times

    ReplyDelete
  31. Yeah thats a good one

    ReplyDelete
  32. Sam said Maybe, but after CTD and Cosmoids

    ReplyDelete
  33. Will you implement egg moves and thingy thingies

    ReplyDelete
  34. no it won't, it will look like a one on one battle, but I'll be making it better as time goes on (showing avatars and names etc)

    ReplyDelete
  35. what do you mean?

    ReplyDelete
  36. I think adding more content like side quest doesn't help with the problem you are suggesting. For example I can spend a whole week on a side quest and you can beat it in 30 min. Multiplayer on the other hand could potentially keep you entertained for weeks (or more!)

    ReplyDelete
  37. soon it's on the list

    ReplyDelete
  38. me neither but a lot of people still look forward to ptd2 updates

    ReplyDelete
  39. really
    see my messages with sam

    ReplyDelete
  40. btw do you remember joel site?
    a friend of mine wants to go there but i don't remember the link

    ReplyDelete
  41. http://oteropictures.blogspot.com.au/2015/03/art-of-champions-tower-defense-part-20.html?spref=tw

    ReplyDelete
  42. Depending: The side quest (achievements), add new possibilities in game. It's short, yes, but add more difficult, and fun. In ptd1, achievements, shiny quest, or catch a legendaries birds, add others ways for game. And it's fun. In ptd2 I hace missing (say that too), the achievements, fo example.
    It's my opinión, obviously, but... Storyline it's great, yes, but it's lot of lineal, and i hav missing, for example catch other "legendary birds" (similar catch in X pokemons), or obtain someone pokemons for achievements (for example shiny hitmon).

    ReplyDelete
  43. my idea was to have mutliplayer on ptd2, and i cant believe it's happening... :'D

    ReplyDelete
  44. And when I thought knock off would cancel mega evolution...

    ReplyDelete
  45. Hi Trainers, trade with me :) Trainer ID: 1177479

    Hi Sam... What is the reward in 1v1, I've been playing it since the release and still nothing happens... btw I cant choose my poke's move in the battle....

    ReplyDelete
  46. I reread the post and I read that I won't be able to change/choose what move will my pokes used inside the battle

    ReplyDelete
  47. Wow Sam this is truly amazing|!Though it would be really cool if we could change our pokemons abilities.:(

    ReplyDelete
  48. Um so I won some battles right now but I dont see any rewards,Where are the rewards?

    ReplyDelete
  49. ID is 5134977.I dont really anything that can be traded for a victini.Well I actually have something even better but I Need it

    ReplyDelete
  50. Sam are the moves in third slot and fourth slot useless in trainer Vs?Or are they going be useable in future?

    ReplyDelete
  51. Fragsaurs NeosaursMarch 14, 2015 at 5:11 AM

    Unlucky me
    i waited 3 hours for an opponent in multiplayer and when i had to go someone logged in

    ReplyDelete
  52. Fragsaurs NeosaursMarch 14, 2015 at 5:16 AM

    Sam how can i my pokemon use all of its moves?
    it uses only its 1st 2

    ReplyDelete
  53. Fragsaurs NeosaursMarch 14, 2015 at 5:33 AM

    Sam how can i play 1vs 1 with a certain person?

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  55. I want Victini.You dont have it we dont trade.

    ReplyDelete
  56. anyone have victini

    ReplyDelete
  57. Sam, great job with the multiplayer.

    ReplyDelete
  58. Thats pretty straight up.

    ReplyDelete
  59. I have been looking for it for a long time.Right now it is the only legendary that I want.I already got all the legendary pokemon from HOF (at least the ones I wanted) and now the only legendary I want is Victini.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I am waiting for my opponent, but it is still finding one. I love it cuz I was waiting for something like this to happen, but it is taking so long. I have benn waiting for about 8 minutes and so on...

    ReplyDelete
  61. Wierd, it usually takes me no time at all.

    ReplyDelete
  62. Sam... There's an extremely OP combination... you have NO IDEA what you've done... (consistently winning even against lvl 110 legendaries w/ single poke)

    ReplyDelete
  63. I don't know why. what computer are you using? It could be that it works on certain computers

    ReplyDelete
  64. I have figured it out, It could be that I need a full house before I enter and the first three are selected.

    ReplyDelete
  65. um im unable to chgange my moves. is anyone else having this problem.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Klefki's not the best here. That position of power belongs to another pokemon.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I must say the multiplayer is great, but I have a few issues:

    1. I can't go into Multiplayer if I don't have a full team in Pokestorage. If I have less than six Pokemon, then I'm stuck forever at "getting an opponent" screen.
    2. It would be helpful to be able to switch your pokemon moves in Pokestorage. Now if I want to change for example Surf's position from 3 to 2 I have to - relearn a random move to take Surf's place and then - relearn Surf to 2 spot
    3. It seems that in Multiplayer battle my Pokemon does it's first move, then second and... it's stuck on using the second for the rest of the battle.

    That's all for now I think.

  68. Trainer ID: 1177479

    I have victini and other pokes. I need shiny zygarde, shiny gible and shiny deino....
    also looking for other legendaries! :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hi Sam,


    since you've added Primal Groundon and Primal Kyogre, when are you going to add Mega Rayquaza?

    ReplyDelete
  70. I can get gible for you.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hi Sam,


    another thing, I think I've found a bug in the Trainer VS. : from time to time the pokemon in the first slot ( the left one ) loses any kind of item you give It, regardless being consumable or not. I've lost two blue orbs this way... Hope you can fix It.

    ReplyDelete
  72. thats not true

    ReplyDelete
  73. I think he is asking about will there be something like Ou/UU battle

    ReplyDelete
  74. many trainers choose their pokemon to have the move covet
    As a matter of fact the opponent may lose but he takes your pokemon item and leaves you with nothing

    ReplyDelete
  75. My Trainer ID: 186004
    I'm looking for shiny Piplup, shiny Snivy, shiny Glameow, shiny Rufflett

    ReplyDelete
  76. MY mewtwo can't learn bulk up

    ReplyDelete
  77. Well even If It is not a bug, I think It would be better for Sam to solve this problem, making the items reappear after the fight ends, otherwise people will lose a lot of items quite difficult to get ( like the blue and red orb ).

    ReplyDelete
  78. What's the point of spamming this?

    ReplyDelete
  79. The one reason I never use any of my primals or Megas.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Reread the post.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I totally agree with the second one.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Be wary of item stealers and instant kill moves. They are the ones of ruin.

    ReplyDelete
  92. Sam can you make in multiplayer an activity which by adding the trainer id you want you can battle with that trainer instead

    ReplyDelete
  93. I have charmander with mega stone!! You can level up that!

    ReplyDelete
  105. lvl110 primal kyogre,lvl110 primal groudon and lvl 110 rayquaza is very OP.Hope i spelled it right

    ReplyDelete
  106. I honeslty did not try that much.I could have got much more but seriously I WAS way TO LAZY.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Sam I have found a bug in the game. I dont know if it only in multiplayer version or story mode too but the ability teravolt is not working.

    ReplyDelete
  108. It is impossible to do that though.

    ReplyDelete
  109. I want to battle you if Sam does that.

    ReplyDelete
  110. xD
    the truth is that i lost about 1000 wins due to a friend of mine

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  146. Sam how does the Trainer VS work do you verse the computer or actual people playing the game?

    ReplyDelete
  147. Also one more thingwhen using stealing moves like thief or covet can you still take the item but the user still has its item there. So if I used covet then I would get that item but the original user would still have its item.

    ReplyDelete
  148. Trading my Kyogre and Groudon with blue and red orb for a few of these regulars.

    ReplyDelete
  152. it has all trainers id. It picks 1 randomly and it uses the 3 first pokemon he has

    ReplyDelete
  153. with covet the item stays
    however if you use klefki ability (magician) you are the only one who takes the item

    ReplyDelete
  154. nope
    my articuno were using sheer cold, my xerneas moon blast and my groudon fissure, so it wasn't me

    ReplyDelete
  155. what mega kuyrem said, it registers your team and then other people play against it, even if you aren't online

    ReplyDelete
  156. it's dynamic so it's not a set one but it greatly increases your chance especially if you keep trying

    ReplyDelete
  157. hmm, still happening?

    ReplyDelete
  158. a specific example on how it didn't work?

    ReplyDelete
  159. fixing instant kill moves

    ReplyDelete
  160. now i am in 2575 wins
    should i stop?

    ReplyDelete
  161. btw you are so creative. you always find ways to make all your games even better (even when we think they cannot get any)

    ReplyDelete
  162. Trainer VS is great. Sam,you create one of the best things.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Hey Son of Neptune, I will not trade the Victini, but I will offer some spare things for your Growlithe to help you.

    ReplyDelete
  164. I'm being dead serious lol. I don't have time for breeding and I have a few extra Kyogres and Groudons and about 20 of each orb.
