Good game. Sometimes frustrating due to not getting what you want. New content, new pokemons made by the server. Keeps game updated. Always up for improvement.

Some of the individual section rules are dumb (I've had a problem with the Contest rules in particular for a while now) and the game gets grindy/frustrating/unfun when you don't have irl cash to spend on ZC, but it's a good game to waste your time on if you have nothing else to do. Coding isn't the most accessible to those that don't know it very well, but if you are experienced with it you can do quite a lot. The mass release option is nice but irritating to use as it doesn't always register your clicking and it doesn't have the drag-to-select feature that mass moving does. Some things such as Day Care eggs and (early) shelter adoptions are restricted a little too much for a player without Hypermode or ZC to spend. Overall I have both a lot of criticism and a lot of praise, and the game is fun on a surface level.

Honestly, being a major Pokémon fan, I expected greatness from this site at the start. I didn't expect to find out that there is something better than perfect. This site is the absolute best I have ever found. Everything from the exclusive albino/melanistics to just the simple things like sprites, the site is extremely well made. I commend this, and again, highly recommend this site.

So, maybe it's not appropriate for me to post a review three days after joining the game however I understand for a website that has been going as long as this one it can be hard for the devs to fully see what newcomers do. So with that, I've got a few suggestions to improve the new player experience.
- The current website UI is extremely confusing to a new player.
I think the first day or so of my playing the game was mostly spent trying to figure out what every icon in the top bar is, what every section of the site does and how to play efficiently. Everything important feels like it's buried beneath menus, sort of like how Neopets was back in the day when you'd have to pretty much find all of the important functions yourself hidden within different worlds.
I suggest replacing the current "middle bar" with a set of categorized drop-down lists, as right now it's oddly time-consuming to reach vital functions of the game. It's inconvenient to have to load the "farm" page just to look at inventory or access trading, fishing or the dojo? I realize there is a bookmarks page but I feel that is not adequately explained by the tutorial.
I just feel like the current UX is incredibly poor, the website feels extremely daunting by modern web design standards and it's likely to scare off some younger players who didn't grow up with the early 2000s web. From the second you look at the website you're bombarded with endless different buttons and functions and very little of it is explained very well.
- The current tutorial is woefully inefficient at explaining the majority of the game's systems.
I feel like much more detail could be added to the tutorial, for example, it took me watching a YouTube video to understand why interactions were important and how Pokérus functions. I really shouldn't have to read the Wiki to understand how to level up and evolve Pokémon, you know?
There is an easy fix to this, short of redesigning the entire website. When you first start a new account certain buttons and functions should not appear on your UI, if you hide functions and only bring them into view as you progress through the tutorial it gives you a chance to explain everything as it becomes relevant and prevents you from overwhelming a new player with information they do not need to know right away.
- The currency system is very offputting.
Now I'm not saying this as a complaint about the currency system as a whole, I don't really mind it. I just feel like the site could do a better job explaining what it is, why it's there and what you can do with the different currencies. After a few days of playing I've realized that, as free-to-play games go, the currency system is relatively fair. However when I first joined it almost immediately put me off the whole website.
I know a lot of the negative reviews are talking about the currency system being unfair, and I think a large part of that may just be that it just isn't very well explained to a new user.
As a whole though, I'm enjoying the website. I can tell there's been a lot of time and effort put into it over the years, I just feel like it's suffering from a bit of the bloat that comes with a game that has been around for so long.
