trashguts: "Surprisingly addicting"★★★★☆
Posted: 27/Apr/2017 21:44:23 (45 minutes ago)
I have bouts of inactivity here and there, but I always log on every day to at least keep my online streak alive. It's on of the only sites I've been active on for years, and I'm still not as close to filling my dex as I'd like to be. I'd especially like to note that this is the only website I actually prefer the mobile interface for when I'm on mobile. I'll force the desktop version of every other site, but the mobile interface is very well designed on PFQ.

So I found Poke Farm Q through my brother and needless to say fell in love. I am a lover of all things Pokémon so if a fan made game comes out I try it out. I adore this game, and am glad that I finally have unlimited data again so I can play on my phone until I have WiFi once more.

Chryssta: "Fun to check on randomly throughout the day..."★★★★☆

...but not really something that I can spend a lot of time on.
I want to give the site 5 stars. I really do. I'm here every day, either on my phone of borrowing someone's wifi on my computer, but I always check in.
This site gets 5 stars for it's mobile setup. With smartphones being the way most people get their internet, its nice to see a site that understands that.
But the reason my review is only 4 stars...
The pokemon, both official and fanmade for the site, are great. Love being able to collect them. However, it's boring just to click things to get the exp to hatch eggs. There's nothing keeping me here for an extended period of time throughout the day. This is something to check on, click a few things, then go do something else.
Thats not the only reason for the 4 stars. I've been in the 'chat room' once. The people in there are some of the meanest and most angry people I've seen online. You're lucky if they don't bite your head off for asking a question. And as a new user, that's not a good sign.
Don't get me wrong. I've met a lot of good people here and have made friends with quite a few of them. But I won't go into forums or chat based on the response I got for asking a simple yes/no question when I was a new user.
All that aside, the rest of the site is fun, though the tapping does get old after awhile. But the tournaments, the events, and everything else the admin and site creators throw together (like when Sun and Moon hit, they had an on going journal entry for a trainer who was traveling Alola and sending pokemon back through the computer to PFQ). It's amazing what they've done with the series.
Plus, it's totally free to play it. And that's always a bonus, right?

Antigøne: "Good in Concept"★★★☆☆

Pokefarm, overall, is a good game to pass time. It has a well-organized forum with great members in the communicate with through PM, forums, or clubs. Saying that Pokefarm has a large social outlet is an understatement- the amount of interaction you can potentially have is huge, which, I think, is part of the reason why this game is so successful. Additionally, members have the ability to run trade shops, manage journals and guides, which provides some people the sense of self-worth and self-motivation(nothing wrong with this, of course!) to keep up with the "forum life", and stay active on the forum every day, which is important to keep the game alive.
Secondly, the support team, staff members, and active community members are efficient. Maybe not always nice, but they are efficient. It takes approximately 1 day for your support ticket to be read and replied to, and even less than a minute to have your suggestion read and reviewed by a community member. There are tons of people who are ready to give you their opinion at the drop of a hat, which is more than I can say for some other websites.
Finally, the "main" part of the game. Whether it's achieving Arceus rank or getting a Melan, it feels really rewarding. It's not such an easy task getting Arceus rank or a melan, and sometimes it can take more than 2 months, but once you do, it feels exciting, enough so that every day you come back to try for more.
That being said, Pokefarm does have a few downfalls where it falls short compared to others. At the core, it's a clicking game. Like most clicking game, it's repetitive. Unlike most clicking games, it's hard to progress on. Wishing forging takes time, hatching eggs take time, filling out your dex takes time, everything takes time. The good thing is that it's not pay to win; however, sometimes it feels as though your not progressing on. This is the part where people start to quit within a month of playing. At the start, you're excited to hatch eggs in hopes of filling out your dex or getting that melan, but you quickly realize that it's boring, and so you quit.
Another thing is, other than forums and clicking, there's really little to keep you here on poke farm. Battling and Fishing are updates that help, but in reality, they are just a distraction and an attempt to bring people active once again. And once again, players find that it takes time to train pokemon and to get a decent pokemon from fishing.
tl;dr, Pokefarm is a really fun game, at first. However, there is little to keep you in to the game once you get bored (and for some people you will get bored quickly); however, if you have some friends in the community, you will have no problem trying to interact with them, which is one of the main reasons why people stay on PF.

Lost Silver: "My Personal Escape"★★★★★

I've been apart of Pokefarm for as long as I can remember. Around 5-6 years, I believe. One of my good friends introduced me to it. It is one of the only game sites I feel comfortable in and all the members are so sweet! Sure some things seem kinda expensive, but I understand that you need the funds to keep this Poke Paradise running. (Plus it's also probably because I am usually as poor as a street rat cx)
But all in all, this game is truly addicting and an overall wonderful place were Pokemon fans can come and hang out and take care of their own Pokemon. ❤

NotMatt: "Very nice game!"★★★★☆

I've been playing almost for half a year now, and I like the game a lot. I have read through the other reviews and I want to point some stuff out as well most people might have noted down as negative.
I myself am a non-paying player, and still I have worked my way up to being able to afford hypermode every month + an ubercharm. I have a shiny charm box and 5 shiny charms and thus have all the extras a 'paid' player can get. There are enough ways to get your zc, if you browse the trade forums. I'm happy that the staff made ZC tradeable, as people don't seem to realize they could've kept this account specific. Not to mention that there are often events which allow normal users to get the 'ZC' goods as well, like last easter event and the 12 days of christmas.
2. The Market.
The market is a very well designed concept. People might be complaining about the high prices, but to me it is only a real example of how the real world works. The market prices are derived from supply and demand. It only makes sense that during evolution tournaments the price of evolution stones skyrocket. It makes sense that after an event where people got premium boxes, or when new summons are released and people use a lot of lucky seals in order to get the new summons, the prices of the 'older' summons lower and you can grab them for cheap.
Not to mention that I am 99.9% sure that you grab every underpriced item on the market you see, and aren't thinking: Oh this is priced too cheaply, I won't buy it. People with their own shop can determine their own prices, so the market is very well established.
The site gets frequently updated, and all of the updates improve the quality of the site. I am glad to see the site is so alive and bugs get fixed. Due to me being a programmer myself, I know how much time the team puts in this game. The code behind this must be mind blowing and I wish more people realized that a 'simple' change could take days and days of coding. Very good job!
Now, next to the fact this site is so amazing, there is one little downside I'd like to adress: the variety of the tournaments.
This season, season 3, there have been a lot of egg hatching tournaments. This is a shame for people who are hunting, and therefore can't participate in tournaments. Where season 2 had a lot of variety: hatching eggs, fishing, scouring, planting berries and several evolution tournaments, season 3 mainly consisted of egg hatching tournaments (7/11 tournaments have been egg-hatching related so far).
Especially when you want to remain Arceus rank, it is quite hard to keep up with the 'Hatch eggs from the lab' or 'Hatch pokemon with color x' or 'Hatch pokemon of the day' tournaments in order to receive tokens and buy the egg. Then again it is a challenge, as Arceus ranking isn't supposed to be easy, but I wouldn't mind if there was more variety in the tournaments every now and then.
Long story short: It's a very good game, and I like it a lot!

Quite hard to get used to at first, but once you know the basics, it's a great game. Welcome to the world of Pokemon!

this game is not only fun and addicting, as pokemon is an interest of mine, but it allows me to have something to do rather than do nothing! you get community rewards and daily rewards which makes it all the more fulfilling!
the only thing i'd have to say is sometimes, lag in clicking can be frustrating for me though that may just be my internet connection.
