Arriving at Goldenrod City

Now that the soft cap is 100 and over 500 moves are in the game I'm ready to keep going with the story. Our hero might think that the past is pretty calm but he will soon find out that is not the case. Goldenrod is a big city so it will be done in two different updates. I look forward to bringing my ideas for the story to life.



PTD Fan Saga Episode 6 is now out!

Joel has been making great PTD fan videos on youtube showcasing his interpretation of the PTD1 story. He recently released episode 6 of his series and I encourage you to check it out if you haven't already. Check it out here.



Mystery Gift

We have over 370 pokemon in the game already! So this week we will add even more! Like every week, you vote and I listen. Both a Mystery Gift and Giveaway will be added. Looks like Grass is winning so far, looks like you guys are hoping for more starters :)

Sam and Dan Games: Fundraiser! Phase 3

Help us keep making games and earn awesome prizes like Shiny Rayquaza and Shiny Heatran!  

Our Goal: $50,000



Mission: Soft Cap 100

This update the mission is very simple. Finish over 50 new moves to increase the soft cap to 100. This will mean that all your pokemon will learn all their moves once this is done. It also means every time I add a new pokemon I will have to add all their move set (if it is not in the game yet). The main reason I'm doing this is that this week I'm a little bit behind with doing the update so adding new moves is something I can manage in the shorter amount of time since it is not as complex as building new story and new pokemon, etc, etc. It will still take me a long time to make all the 50 moves so wish me the best!



Mystery Gift

Like every week we will have a mystery gift and a giveaway. Note: Mystery Gifts will no longer be shiny but you will still be able to get a shadow on Thursdays. Also all Giveaways will stay shiny (shadow on thursdays) For the time being getting pokemon that you wouldn't normally get for a while is a good reward. This week we have Water type as the winner. I added most of the water type pokemon with some few exceptions. Vote for which you want to win!

Help us keep making games and earn awesome prizes like Shiny Rayquaza and Shiny Heatran!  

Our Goal: $50,000



Status Changes

Something that has been bugging me for a while is that you can get paralyzed, poisoned, burned, put to sleep all at the same time in PTD. In the game you can only have one of these on you at a time. So my wish is to make it work like that on PTD 2. What do you think? Will it make things harder? Easier? Do you like the change?



Trap Mechanics

Another mechanic change that I want to make is to actually make the trap mechanic have an effect on pokemon while in battles. The new effect will be that pokemon will not be able to leave the level when you have trapped them (using mean look, or arena trap etc). They can still get the candy and take it away but they won't leave the stage. Pokemon with abilities like Run Away can still leave the stage.



Headbutt Mechanic

This week I'm going to introduce the headbutt mechanic into the game! This has been a much requested feature so I'm happy to finally be able to add it in. How I'm thinking about it is that you have to have the pokemon that knows headbutt follow you in the map and then simply you go close to a tree and you press the action button. Pretty similar to fishing. That will trigger a battle. Some new pokemon that you will be able to get with this process will be: Pineco, Aipom and Heracross!



Route 34

I'm also adding Route 34 to the game to continue pushing the story mode forward. This road includes the Day Care center. I'm still thinking about how I might handle this place since I already have the breeding center page. Have any ideas that wouldn't totally break the game? Let me know. Also Snubbull will be one of the pokemon in this route, so look forward to that.



Cosmoid Rewards

It's been a loooong time coming but this week I will definately add the Cosmoids Rewards to the game. If you don't know what this is I will explain it now. For our fundraiser if you donated 10 or more dollars you will get Shiny Heatran and your choice of Cosmoids Starter for your PTD2 account. For a while now we haven't added the Cosmoid Reward and now you will. Cosmoids is a new game that we are making that is a lot like pokemon but with our own unique creatures on it. For more information on the fundraiser click the link towards the top of this post.



Mystery Gift 

Like every week we have the mystery gift and giveaways.



Soft Level Cap to 40

Last but not least, I will be increasing the soft level cap to 40. This will add 19 new moves into the game and get us one step closer to the elusive level 100 soft cap.



As you can see we have a lot lined up for this week. Wish me luck!
