Sneaky Shadow: "I'm still here - years later..."★★★★☆

What I like best about this site:
It's addicting, which is why I always linger around this site, and I like the events!
What I am feeling so-so about on this site:
Monotonous clicking. Clicking. Clicking.
I don't even care that the dailies pop up, I try to ignore that as quickly as possible.
Especially did not like the 'click 20,000 times' from the last event - just clicking 10,000 times made my wrist hurt, which wasn't very helpful when I had to show up for work the next day and try doing an 8-hour job in 4 hours, so I am never going to try clicking that amount again.
I love my clicking ability, but my job is top priority, as much as I don't want to admit. x-x
Comparing to the old PokeFarm:
The users' profile pages colors (just to put this out there,) are rather hard for me to see.
Light colors blend for me, so when the profile pages were first changed, I was clicking on everything but the feeding button.
I'm not clicking everywhere as badly as I started out, but it's not really my best clicking, and I'd really hoped that before the other color scheme was tossed out for this new color scheme, color choice options would have been listed first.
The old color scheme, although not 'appealing' enough, was fully visible to me.
I hope it does become an option for people to be able to change their profile colors so they can view profile pages differently.
(On the old PokeFarm: Mine was a black background with green highlights, as some of the other styles made it harder for me to read, and some of them blended in for me.)
I'm not a fan of the Tournaments, so I hardly choose to participate in them; I have to buy daycare passes to keep hatching eggs, luckily my shelter adoption level is higher but not the highest yet, and buying Tokens - I don't even consider buying them until they are put 'on sale' before the next set of Tokens are released.
12 Tokens at 200GP each = 2,400GP, for one eggdex entry.
That's 9,600GP for all four eggdex entries.
I'm always trying to save up Credits and GoldPoke to buy things, but I'm always feeling broke on this site, and that the only way to escape it is to use real cash.
On the old Pokefarm, I had Credits enough to buy multiple Ditto, and loads of fields and easily get Event / Fakemon for myself, so I feel... nothing I do gets me anywhere, currency-wise.
Also, the forums are a bit confusing compared to the old Pokefarm.
When I go to search for topics, most of the time I end up in the wrong sections - I go to the help section and not find what I am looking for, and go digging around in another forum and find something almost similar but not quite, and then get directed by a link / a mention to someone else's thread, but it was deleted because it was answered / went beyond the time limit for keeping up a thread.
It would be helpful if there was some kind of collection of all information presented, like a clickable reference section that details things, or at least a search bar that had key words to help find things in particular.
So I mostly don't go around in the forums unless I'm desperately buying Tokens and Pokemon.
I really can't thank the staff enough for so many things!
You've given me events to participate in, you're still working on making this site more enjoyable, you're taking care of peoples' needs and helping people, and doing great things like making artwork, sprites, Fakemon - all kinds of things!
I've been through soooo many websites over the years... Evony, horse-whatevers, dragon-stuff, more dragon-stuff, pet-games, monster games, other Pokemon game sites, and loads more - but I still come here (pretty much 99% of the time) daily, which is probably the hardest thing to do considering that I've dropped almost every single site because I lost interest within the first half of a year.
Thank you staff! <3

Really great! Been a member since the good old PF1 days! This game is very relaxing and stress relieving. There's lots of things to do, provided you have the patience or money >u0
Pretty much anything you could do with a premium currency, you can without it too, you just gotta be patient. And that's great!
Updates are constantly being added, so the game just gets better and better!
It's very calming to click away.
Great site, I love it!
Have never had a problem with the staff or other users.
And if you need help users and staff are very friendly!

I've been playing the game for about a month or so, and I have been enjoying it a lot! Filling my dex and trading/helping others has been a very fun time!
However, there were some features that took me a bit of time to realize.
In particular, the EXP share and summon item Dex unlocks.
The EXP share is very sparsely mentioned despite it being practically neccesary for quality of play, and when I discovered it, I felt foolish for some of my previous GP investments. Perhaps a small mention of it in one of the interaction amount task would be nice?
Summon dex unlocks are also very subtle and unmentioned until you visit the summon items page, which in and of itself is shuffled off into the Other Places page. Perhaps a more thorough metioning of unlocking summon items in the egg hatching tasks would be nice, or maybe a notification when you've met requirements to unlock an item? I again felt foolish for having purchased and opened so many boxes with so many summon items left locked that I could have easily clicked to unlock.
Regardless of those two complaints, thank you for the fun site and I look forward to using it more in the future!

This game is by far one of the most addicting games I've played. The staff are friendly, and willing to help with problems, the community is awesome, and the amount of unique ideas is huge! There are things that could be improved, a very small amount though. ^^

When I first heard of PFQ I was a user on PF1 by the name of rosetail99, and at first I was hesitant to join, mostly because I was already attached to my PF1 farm.
When I finally bit the bullet and joined I was impressed at how new and exciting everything was. But around that time I left PF1 I had some things going on, and eventually, I left both websites. When I returned last year I was surprised to find how great this website had become, with shinies, albinos, new megas, and even melanistic pokemon.
All in all, great website, great mods, great people, great fun. I recommend this website to people who enjoy spending time on pokemon related things and collecting, because this website really is great for those who feel that just having the normal pokedex isn't enough.

I would give you 3/5 because it's good for the time I've been playing it, but is there anyway you could make it more mobile friendly? I only have a phone, and your buttons get caught often, and sometimes the page doesn't load so all I see are 10,000 Niets. (Exaggeration but you get the point, not that your icon isn't cool!) And also, is there a way you could hint us as to who the next PoTD will be? Like a puzzle or riddle to help prepare ourselves? (It would make a good mini game, you think? ;)) Aah, good website overall, and please consider my requests!

Thanks for your review. I'm a little confused by "more mobile friendly" - the site is designed to work very well on mobile, and I personally have used my phone with no issues at all. What you're describing sounds like a network issue, or perhaps an issue specific to your device, as it is failing to load core files that make the site work. Please consider posting in the Bugs forum to see if there's any way to fix it.
Regarding the PotD, it's intended to be a fresh surprise every day, and coming up with a riddle for every possible option would be quite a large effort when we're stuck in the middle of releasing Alolan Pokémon to the site. Unfortunately, I don't think this is something we'll be able to do.

I have been on this site around the beginning of 2014, and though I left for a few weeks periodically, I always would come back.
The Tournaments are my personal favorite part if the site, as it gives players more of a challenge to obtain the new Fakemon that are released with a start of a new Season. It also makes the community come together to help each other by selling their Tokens for people to obtain their desired Token payment item/Pokemon.
The Daily Tasks are a great function to bring people back to the site daily to chain up to a greater prize. Though I always forget to do the clicking portion when I am busy, haha!
All the MCWs are great, but I wish there were more that wouldn't be in the generic 10k clicks to recieve a Mega Stone, instead some with extra targets to get a little extra. Some of the Mega Pokemon seemed to be rushed in design, or are made to be a joke, so I hope to see some more user input into the Mega Stones sometime; so there is more community addition into the ideas of PFQ Exclusive Megas.
I feel that the Hypermode is a decent enough price for all users, even the younger audience on the site, since if you are able to buy a pack of Pokemon cards, just pitch a few more cents into Hypermode. Trust me, it is worth it!
All in all, I can't wait to see what the future brings to the website, and for those Dungeons. ;)

opalfire: "A little more information"★★★☆☆

I like this game a lot, it incorporates the pokemon and the need of others help in raising them very well. The main problem I've run into is the lack of guidance. In the start of the game you had a very good tutorial but it missed a lot of features that needed explaining or were not quite gone over well. Some things are self explanatory but other things have to be reached or tried and failed before the understanding comes across. This is still one of the best pokemon games I've ever played and I recommend it to all my friends that enjoy pokemon.

Thank you for your review. While efforts have been made to have each page explain how the features within work, it's entirely possible that the explanations aren't as clear as were hoped. It's very important to hear your feedback on matters like this, because... Well, I'm the developer, and I wrote the descriptions, so I think they make sense! If you have any specific examples that could use better explanations, please feel free to bring them up on the Forums or via PM. Also, consider contributing to the Wiki with things you have discovered so that other users may benefit from your findings.
