4/5. I love the general idea of the site, just messing around with your friends, trying to hatch a shiny or to get the mythical Arceus. However, it is a bit of a mixed bag as well; there's really not any notable features aside from collecting and clicking. I do know you guys are working on bigger things, but what I'd really like to see in the future are events utilizing your Pokemon, and you can send them out on 'journeys', per se; along with other players, you can take on boss Pokemon that can be added to your collection if the mission is cleared. That is a feature I'd love to see.
Aside from all of that, I truly do love this site. I just want to see bigger, better features; and I know a team of all you wonderful fellows can do it! Good luck in the future. -Diancie

The game is fine, but oh my god a few of the staff are some of the literal worst people I have ever seen.
They're very rude to people who ask questions, particularly Niet, and the head mod, Constantine, is a super huge jerk. In the former's case, the best example I can think of is a few months ago a user asked a question that was answered in the OP (albeit slightly covered with more text). Niet said something to the effect of, "We always have at least one person who can't read."
Maybe chill? As a former mod on another petsite, one rule we had drilled into our heads was, "be as professional as you can be where others can see you." Calling someone out like that just makes you look like a pompous jerk.
Not saying everyone is bad, but it's hard to take the news seriously when it's posted by people I have no respect for. I honestly like GPX more - at least Big Bidoof isn't rude to his users and doesn't lie about who he is.
(watch this not show up, despite it being an honest critique)

We're sorry you feel this way. I realise that not everyone enjoys the same sense of humour, and efforts will be made to avoid this issue in future. I don't know why you don't think this review will appear though - there's no point in having reviews if you can't post negative ones! Personally I would question "honest critique" since it seems more like a rant to me, but to each their own. We hope you will give us an honest chance to improve in future.

I've been subscribed to ToxicGluttony's shop basically since I joined the site, and I've bought tons of things from her. She's really sweet, reliable and all of her prices are fair. Thanks Rose! ^-^

I love not having to battle these poor creatures against each other and caring for them the best I can. I personally love how if you put lots of effort into this game you get a great reward

DarkSword104: "it's great! except for the market"★★★★☆
Posted: 07/Jan/2017 20:53:24 (2 years ago)
I love this game! it's great! catching, hatching, breeding, evolving, summoning! it's all here! I even have a lugia egg, given to me by a SHINY Lugia! but there's only one thing that'll make this better: lower market prices. I look there every so often, and I find that EVERYTHING has AT LEAST 6 digits. some gems are cheap, but they're bundled, so the price goes even higher! I would suggest that a price cap would be nice. but...OTHER than that, it's fine! just waiting on the minigames and dojo!

The site itself is very innovative, and I have been a long time fan (being a player that migrated over from the older website)! I remember at first, when I wasn't a very big fan that everything cost Zophan Canisters and that you had to purchase them with RL money, but I soon realized that the site needed funding, and this was a good way to get it while giving something back to the players! I haven't purchased anything from the site itself, as I need all my RL money for bills and the like, but it seems to be a fair and balanced system. And the use of Gold Poke has also risen within the game for some cool and useful features, and you can obtain that without money!
I'm very pleased with the website, and the way the staff handles themselves and any situation that may arise within the player base. The pixels and artwork from the site are beautiful an you can tell that a lot of work and love was put into them. Here recently the website went under a total make over with the new coding, and I must say that everything is working wonderfully!
My only complaint is that sometimes in the night, a little before and a little after the site goes down for maintenance, the entire site lags for me. (This could last between 30 mins - 1 and half hours) I check all my other websites that I use during this time and they're running, loading pages quickly. Of course this could just be the site preparing and ending the maintenance, but I'd like a confirmation on this.
Other than that one hiccup, I believe the site is doing a fantastic job, as are the staff! It's a great game to play when you're bored, just want to click, want a fresh experience, or just feel like hoarding pokemon! I'd definitely recommend it to my friends (I already have c: ), and anyone reading this review should definitely give it a try!

The site is super coolio amazing! I mega enjoy it!! The community is so kind and the staff listens to opinions and suggestions!!! I genuinely feel welcomed on this site and find that clicking can be extremely calming when I'm in a moody pinch. Events are fun and I enjoy the tournaments to see how far I can go. This site is overall amazing and I love it!

So, to start off, I love the site! I've been here since PF1, and as you can see I'm still here! The community, for the most part, is wonderful and creative. The ability to see and obtain custom sprites is also very nice!
Though, aside from that, it's a bit boring in all honesty. I know that there are minigames being programmed in, but it's taking a very, very long time to do that, and it's been promised since day one. It's not that they can't be implemented, as the Voltorb Switch (I think was the minigame that was used) game was here for the big downtime! I also feel that priority is aimed towards the wrong things, such as a VIP list (A list that shows who's online and who's offline) being implemented before a block function.
The last note I will add is sometimes in the suggestions forum, the mods use sarcasm and jokes, which is a bit unprofessional to say the least.
Aside from all of those things, I do love the site! I also love a lot of the people I've met here, and feel very happy to be a part of the community.

Thank you for your review. It's great to hear that you've been with us for so long!
I just wanted to touch on what you said regarding the order in which features are implemented. There are many challenges to overcome but most of them are hidden from you - after all, it's no good if you see broken pieces everywhere, is it? We endeavour to only present features to you that are complete and fully functional, and this was one of the aims of the recode.
I'd also like to mention that I, personally, don't believe we need a Block function. If a user is doing something that you would normally want to block them for, then chances are you can Report them instead. We do try to take care of our users and make them feel welcome every time they come here, so if someone is damaging your experience then we would like to know about it. This will allow us to - hopefully! - fix the issue rather than ignoring it (which is what Blocking does). I hope you understand, but if you'd like to discuss this further, please don't hesitate to talk to a staff member about it.
Regarding sarcasm, I can see why it might be considered unprofessional, but we believe it adds a bit of humanity into our posts. Nobody likes dealing with an Evil Corporate Zombie and robotic, factual replies really lack the spice that makes a community come alive. I do try to keep things clean, but if you feel like I'm crossing a line, then I apologise.
Thank you again, and we hope you'll continue to stick with us for many more years!

I've spent hundreds of hours on this game, but after awhile, it does get very repetitive and boring. One of the biggest things that put me off of the game is how many mega stones there are now coupled with the fact that they are all very rare. It makes filling up the dex almost impossible without dealing with other people. Some people would rather go at this alone, and right now that's almost impossible without spending at least a full year on here, every single day.

Thank you for your review. I realise that as the site grows, and more Exclusives are added, it does become harder to keep up. We do have a lot of Exclusive Mega Stones as well as plans for even more, so I can certainly see how it might become an issue. I would suggest taking a look at the Marketboard - there are many Mega Stones available for sale, and this is how I personally collect them because I don't have the time to play much myself! The prices may seem high, but I'm sure you can find a way to make money, perhaps by selling other items you have gathered?
PokéFarm Q is designed to be a social game, and therefore many features are designed with cooperation in mind. This does make it somewhat difficult to "go it alone", but it's not impossible - it just takes perseverance.
Thank you again, we hope you'll continue to enjoy spending your hours with us, and we really appreciate you doing so.
