Even as someone who isn't as into Pokemon anymore, I still enjoy playing this. It's also really nice that accounts remain even if I disappear for a long time.

It’s a very nice game to play when my internet connection isn’t good enough to talk with friends or do homework (which happens a lot on my campus)
The site runs pretty well despite the crummy connection at my college, and is a great time passer while waiting for the bus or just in between classes.

It's great, an amazing game, but there isn't that much mobile support, it might just be because I have an original iPad, but clicking acts weird and sometimes sprites won't show, at one point in time, the shelter was showing completely different sprites, but, as I said before, I probably just need to get a newer iPad.

I love this game. When i started playing in 2014 it was so addicting and i couldn't go a day without playing. A few years ago i called myself quitting mainly because i had spent so much money and time trying to hatch a melan that i really wanted when melans were first introduced to this game. It was kind of frustrating to see someone else got it in weeks when I wanted the first but i know its unpredictable but i returned and i see now it is ways to increase chances of getting melans if you have been hunting for a long time which i think is really great because hard work pays off now. Also I love the idea of z crystals increasing chances also. Overall i see a lot of improvement since i took a 2 year break from the game and I am addicted to playing all over again. I get on everyday.
It's also a great way to keep busy. There are so many things to do on here that i can play for hours and still not get bored. I had a time where i had been going through some things in my life and when i start playing pfq i forget about all negative things because I'm enjoying this game. Great job and keep up the good work!! :)

This site is probably the best. I wish there was a way to battle your friends though and not just hatch eggs.

There are a bunch of problems I have with the site, most of which are just due to my own personal taste, but the bottom line is: I'm not satisfied with the way the site operates.
A lot of things work, and those things are great! But the things that don't work bog down the overall pacing of the game, turning it into a tedious borefest instead of the rewarding experience I think it was supposed to be.
Melans are reserved for people with the patience of a saint, or for people who are willing to spend money. I like to think I'm a patient person, but because I'm f2p, I have to be.
The main problem I have with S/A/M hunting is that nothing is guaranteed. Even with bonuses, and chains, and upgrades, there's no guarantee that my hard work and patience will be rewarded. The process becomes all the more frustrating because when I'm on a hunt, I can't do anything else!
Shiny charms and Übercharms both cost money. These, along with a lot of other account upgrades (like Hypermode), are unavailable to me.
I'm giving the game a 3/5 because Albino hunting exists. Sitting and refreshing the shelter for hours just to find a handful of eggs still isn't exactly my idea of fun, but with Albino hunting I can, at the very least, work on my badges and Pokedex in the meantime.

i've been playing for a while now. gotta say i really like it except it got kinda boring to me after a while. i really wish there was new stuff like sword and shield pokemon, though i recall niet saying they wouldn't be added. i can understand why, sprite making must be very tedious and the game isn't even out yet. i would like to see it possibly happen in the future, though. anyways, the game has a very friendly and helpful userbase as from what i've seen, and a very interesting concept by itself. the albinos and melans are nothing but absolutely beautiful in design, and work as a very great expansion to shiny hunting. the events are interesting and have me wanting more, though collecting the items can be a bit tedious (for me at least) to do. though, i do enjoy the challenge. the staff are very helpful and i appreciate everything they've done for me, and for the site itself. the trainer sprites are very cute, and i enjoy customizing mine a lot. i gotta say, good job!!! (p.s i also heard there was a reboot being worked on, and i'm pretty excited for that.)
definitely would recommend to friends. :)

First I would like to say at first I enjoyed this game. As far as clicker-games go it was enjoyable at first. However, over time, the entire process of hunting became more tedious than fun. Especially with the growing fact you would need to start to spend money to do more. And before this is met with 'you don't have to'; yes, you do.
I have played plenty of games where users have more access to premium content without paying - it takes time, but not nearly as long as this site takes. If you want shinies, albinos, or the ever rare melans, you're going to have to either farm for months or pay up to $100 dollars for the chance of even getting one melan. While shinies and albinos are easier to obtain, the big fish is the melan, and that is simply for collection or selling. It comes down to the overall feeling that over time the game simply becomes another money-grab that make one seek out other clicker-games.
While yes one can say 'the mods make it obvious you CAN do things without spending a dime' how much time does someone need to spend to have some relaxing poke-farm time? While people are allowed to make money for what they do, especially maintaining a site that caters to hundred to thousands, there is a point where it becomes obvious that money is the end goal; not user satisfaction. The user-base isn't just teens in school; but some young adults who have more than just poke-farm in their life. There should be a way a casual player can enjoy what a hard-core player enjoys. Yet, it seems the mods cater towards those more willing to spend money.
[redacted - see reply below]
With these two things I've decided that this site is less than what it should be and perhaps it is time to look for a new game to relax with.

Hello. After reading your review, I've made the difficult decision to redact a portion of it due to its content.
For obvious reasons, I don't want to have to edit reviews, as that can potentially undermine trust in the review system. As a result, this decision was not made lightly.
If you would like to discuss this further, you're welcome to do so in more appropriate channels (ie. PM to an Administrator, or via the Support Centre). Likewise, I cannot go into too much detail as to why this has been done. Suffice it to say that the issue you had (which from our point of view is a non-issue) has actually been made a very serious issue because of what you posted here.
The issue you had was confined to a place where it is appropriate to be kept. You broke that "container" with your review, allowing it to spill over where it *legally* doesn't belong. What you did is, honestly, hypocritical, as you have given people the tools to find the content you yourself have a problem with.
We had measures in place and you violated them. Lastly, if people lie then the blame is on them, not anyone else.
Thank you for your understanding.

Pokefarm Q is as it sounds, a game where you are a farmer of Pokemon. You can play so many different ways, some people play with battling, some people go for breeding and IVs, some people decide to become shopkeepers, some even people decide to take up the noble job of fishing. Me? I shiny hunt, grind in the immersive economy, and grow berries. and when I say grow berries I mean, I grow ALL the berries.
Shiny hunting has never been as gratifying as in this game, because not only do we have shinies but we also have two rarer things! Albinos, and Melanistics. If you thought it was satisfying to obtain a shiny in the OP games, you have no idea the instant gratification you will get after weeks, months or even years of dedicated hunting pays off and you get a beautiful melanistic pokemon.
Play this game, there is no better third party pokemon game. And in my p e r s o n a l opinion, there is no better pokemon game.

My friend talked me into joining this and I have no regrets. It's fun and relaxing to just click and collect a bunch of pokemon. 12/10
