  1. Except I don't have a chomp already top kek. This game is more like a battle simulator than it is an mmo, the mmo features are few and far between and literally based around wasting time. I emplore you to read my entire post bro .. I want it to actually be a mmo not just a lame ass grind with no reward than hurr Durr more battle simulator lol. Don't tell me to quit because I don't agree like everyone else, it's not cool bro, and it's very toxic. I'm literally offering tons of advice as a game dev myself, I'm not just complaining, I'm offering options and solutions. Something I see nobody else doing btw. Y'all seem very complacent with fake content
  2. Ooo boy can't wait for my drip feed of fake content! Seriously guys, what the fuck... You claim you want to balance the game for nubs but here you go locking gameplay mechanics behind a bunch of bullshit that will likely be too hard for casuals to even consider attempting. Making HAs hard to get is toxic as fuck. You are fucking over every single long term player in this game and making it hard to even play the 5th gen battle simulator. You guys seem to fail to realize, after all the bullshit, after I rebreed everything, I'm still just gonna be playing the 5th gen battle simulator. The dungeons being like a fleeting deviation, only lasting maybe an hour before I never have to return again bar legendaries. You guys seem to literally disregard your community left and right. Sacrificing the players base for the ""economy"", well guess what, economy aint shit with no playerbase either. Elvis presly said some very relevant shit, " Always listen to your fans" they are the reason you guys have a project to work on, if you notice you've pissed off everyone with some rediculous update, you should try and fix it not just basically give old members the middle finger pandering to a "new" fanbase that's just going to pay the storyline and then quit after anyway. Here's an idea: instead of focusing on taking vanilla Pokemon mechanics and mmo-ifying them. You should take mmo mechanics and poke-fying them. Grinding for hours for an ability is the opposite of fun, it's lifeless, fucking boring, and like I said before, fleeting. When you start brainstorming new ideas you should ask yourself 1 question: is this fun? You're making a fucking game for the kiddos. It's gotta be fun. I swear to god this game is a missed opportunity. We have the dankest market in any Pokemon game (RuneScape Grand exchange) but no pvp staking?? No player owned housing in cities??? No even attempt or consideration towards open wilderness pvp one day... No attempt or consideration towards open world mechanics, mining for resources, player classes and levels. With features like those you don't even need drip feed updates, they are so fun as it is you can play like that forever, maybe add a new class here and there etc. Nobody gives a fuck about the concept of hidden abilities, when gen 5 was new we all thought it was fucking stupid they were locked behind the dream world and just gened them anyway. Nintendo even undid all that and made them very easy to get in the friend Safari. Learn from their mistakes. Listen to the players who stay for long periods of time, because they see some sort of potential nobody else sees. And please PLEASE consider adding mmo features instead of time wasting features.
  3. no matter what you pay its probably gonna be more than the in game leveling feature (daycare) just lvl your mons to like lvl 75 and then place in daycare the the final 25 levels while you lvl other shit, you rly cant beat 1k a lvl lol

No bullshit just games is the perfect description for a game that prides itself on not adopting the Pay 2 Win platform. Back in 2012 it was a much different game. The base of the game was a multiplayer emulated experience by no economy or tiers were present. This had some interested and mazing results. Shinies, lucky eggs, and pokemon became the currency and this was all decided collectively by the players. Many old players refer to this time-period as "CatchMMO" as well because breeding was not present. While many disliked this leading to the breeding system being implemented, many players actually enjoyed the exclusivity of certain gift pokemon, and the thrill of catching a pokemon with very good ivs. Although tthis made the battle system much less deep and as such the comp scene was not taken seriosuly for a while. 3v3s were the norm but it still had a very fun atmosphere and with no automated system in place people were required to interact much more. I think PokeMMO can learn from its past and provide similar peramiters to increase the fun a bit and player to player direct interaction. One way it can do so is simply allowing teleportation to the battle arena when they are spectating a battle. Just this small feature alone would bring back alot of the hype lost due to automation. PokeMMO is very long running and i joined in september 2012. It has a bright future ahead for it and i look forward to all the new features it will provide!

X: A long time haha, i joined in 2012 and havent left since except for some short breaks here and there X2: Thats awesome, whats kept you here so long? Whats your favorite thing about the game? X: Well ive always loved competitive Pokemon and first got into it back when gen 4 was new. I played shodddy battle and showdown extensively and so i think thats why i stay here. I love battling and i love that my comps/shinies actually mean something here. X2: Yeah thats the thing with the vanilla games, many players like to hunt shinies and breed legit pokes but they quickly find that almost everyone hacks in pokemon. X: Yeah its really unfortunate for those who do grind X2: So onto the next question, if you could change or add 1 thing to the game what would it be? X: Well im known for my suggestions but this one is quite simple. I think they should add more "pay-to-save-time" type features. Stuff like one-time pokerus pills, exp all, drugs that fill all evs, stuff like that. With more donations the devs will be able to work harder and the players dont feel like they are missing anything other than time when buying the items so i think its fair for everyone. X2: Thats great well were getting towards the end of this interview, any closing words you'd like to share with our subscribers? X: Just keep playing dont quit after the storyline lol, theres always gonna be new stuff to breed and new comps to play, donate more as well, server space isnt free so consider donating if you can here and there. X2: Awesome, really solid stuff, thank you for the interview today! X: No problem! X2: Cya online!
  5. nope not extra since youre not advertising any services, etc xD
  6. lol you seem to be forgetting that im also creating jobs and an advertising network from within the game, i need to have resources to pay any writers/mailmen i decide to offer as well as whatever giveaways and comps i want to do through the newspaper. 10k a week is really cheap and to unsubscribe they simply just dont pay for the next month kek if i allowed people to quit then i would potentially have no money to those i wish to hie and almost all the money i will be actually making will be used for giveaways etc
  7. No refunds has been changed only during the fundraiser period. Im writing a mock issue currently. after the fundraiser there will never be refunds offered.
  8. no the old issues will not be posted as to add exclusivity to the service as it exists within PokeMMO itself. During the 40 member fundrasier I will consider making a new, fake issue to provide as an example but seeing as alot of work goes into making a single weekly issue it might take a lil bit and was considered prior.

  10. 4. +1, -1, yes, no, and anything similar are not acceptable posts. Shouldnt mods have to follow the rules too? No matter how memey and whack the post is, hell it could straight up call your game a [piece of shit. Discussion is discussion and this is a discussion board ffs
  11. I suggest we only give out 6x0 shitmon shinies for prizes * doesnt hurt economy cause untradeable * just as viable as current rewards
  12. Classic hivemind mentality New players ain't shit to the old players. New players almost always quit after the storyline, and will certainly quit once they manage the 100 hours it takes to make a team and that still doesn't make them good at battling. What about fucking the ditto market, the lucky egg market, already forcing us to rebreed because of new egg moves as well as refusing to ban anything, is good to you? And that's just scratching the surface Uh yeah it will, the whole point to the dungeons is to get chimps to, wait for it... play more comp High end eh? Because we can totally link up 100 players to raid a boss right? You realize they are probably just gonna be a rehashed winter event right? Great so let's shit on the only players who will be sticking around? Gr8 10/10 suggestion that is Yeah dude MMO features like pvp staking and open wilderness, those 2 features alone could carry this game into space I love change, I ask for change more than anyone else. Just not half baked, fake content drip fed new abilities over the course of 5 years, barred behind overly difficult and boring dungeons LITERALLY DESIGNED TO WASTE YOUR TIME while excluding new players even more making them that much more likely to quit after the storyline like they were going to anyway Oh so mature m8 I r8 this b8 8/8 I believe it is your f8 to be so gr8 I can't w8
  13. Ugghh here we go again with the horrible philosophies.... Dude @Kyu bro, just i have to point out the obvious once again? @redspawn you fought the fight well bro. Hidden Abilities: Locking them behind some weird grind that's not even accessible until after a storyline is absurd. There's like a million reasons why, here's some: * Makes it 100% harder for n00bs to git gud, doesn't matter if you go hidden ability pill route or the dungeon route, it makes it just that much harder for n00bs to be able to actually play pvp when they're already competing with veteran esports masters, if you really cared about making shit accessible you'd simply add HAs as a third ability available anywhere * Rebreeding just to stay relevant is toxic content, puts a bad taste in literally everyone's mouth * People will already NEVER run out of new shit to breed, there's no "oh every Mon is bred, game is dead now" not only do people quit, they also try new sets, and new tiers, for 1 player to have every Mon In every tier with every set is not only ridiculous, it's impossible. Not to mention, after you get done dropping millions and 12 hours of your precious time on ONE Mon, it could still be a piece of shit, or you might simply not be good enough to even use it right * People have been VERY adamant about not liking this philosophy, by going through with this plan you're basically saying "oh yeah I read your comments m8, I completely disregarded them too lololol" you should be trying to please us, not making us quit left and right "for the grind longevity" inb4 12 people tell me to quit because I dislike some of the recent decisions being made. No I'm not quitting, I joined almost 6 years ago, every post I've ever made on these boards offering my honest advice (as a game dev myself I might add) has been out of LOVE for this game. I've seen it go from a thriving MMO to one with 4 matchmaking matches all with the same players over and over and that's so sad to see. People play MMOs because there long term time investments actually mean something. Literally the last 3 updates have done nothing but shit on your long term players and the game has never been so dead. Learn from your mistakes. Move forward with some respect for the players. Add actual MMO features ffs. That is all.
  14. Xatu

    We need fairies!

    Post got ripped because I called someone out for being toxic? Ok I say yes Why: Game was better when it was more original. Now it's just a fifth gen sim with HAs on the way but locked behind a pointless grind wall.. yay
  15. Quests would be better, since it's /supposed/ to be an MMO afterall
  16. it seemed like it was nowhere to be found haha
  17. Xatu

    Class System

    Im not angry or rude at all, the person i told to fuck off was intentionally trying to derail the thread. And the depth of my suggestion shouldnt decide whether or not we discuss and further develop the suggestion.
  18. o7 best of luck on your journies to other, hopefully better, games
  19. hes not complaining about every single ""feature"" if you can even call it that. Hes complaining about 1 thing, and many many people are getting rekt by this change. He has the right to complain as much as he wants, it just shows to the devs how much there whack decisions affect long term players.
  20. Except complaining DOES do things. My state just made cannabis legal, that shit didnt just happen on its own lmao!
  21. lol he clearly had a love for this game guys. He cared enough to voice his opinion on the forums because he felt wronged in some way, this is a basic human reaction and you guys like to pretend like youd act any differently if you were in his situation.
  22. Xatu

    Class System

    Pretty realistic. Its an MMO and nobody even considered putting in player ran gyms or classes.... levels for doing stuff over time? I even broke down each idea and explained how they worked in good enough detail. Trust me, if the game wasnt in need of grandiose suggestions i wouldnt produce them. What we have now is hardly different from a battle simulator with little to no rewarding, fun. endgame content. Its needs whacky shit like this to make it more fun, while still having PvP pokemon battles at its core.
  23. Yeah but that idea doesnt take a VANILLA MECHANIC and replace it with a NON-VANILLA MECHANIC. Its ok to add new shit and the lack of new shit is what makes this game dull and NOT FUN.
