Pølnareff: "PFQ is improving, bit by bit! Recommend all friends and family to play this online game!"★★★★☆

PokeFarm Q has been my favorite game ever since I first came there. The staff communicates with its fellow players, and that's something that staff on every virtual pet site should do! (Not that I'm saying that PokeFarm Q is a virtual pet site, but it may be depicted as one to some people...which is blindly wrong, as PFQ isn't a virtual pet site, it's more of a fan site that caters to Pokemon fans, young and old, with a ton of Pokemon to collect.)
It's awesome that two people are manning this site like pros - yes, I'm pointing at Niet and Garthic, they are a powerhouse team when they're together and making this site grow and release new features for us to enjoy! Plus I'm glad there's moderators (both chat and forums) to enforce rules when someone's breaking them!
My favorite feature has to be the Scour Missions. I can find tons of things that I can sell or use on my Pokemon!
There's one thing that worries me. Like, if the server is having hiccups, it always has errors popping up every which way. I know that I might be overreacting, and I understand. But I hope there's a way to reduce them so they don't hinder interactions on Pokemon in other people's parties. And it is a common issue that may be unable to be fixed. Some that appear are a Deadlock error, 200 OK and Internal Server Error (404). Those either persist, or they appear for only once or twice and never appear again.
However, I do recommend reporting the errors (and other various bugs) to the Bugs forum so Niet can figure out the issue and try to fix it.
The News part of PFQ updates constantly with new features and updates to features that are already present! It's very handy to check out the latest stuff!
Oh, and PFQ staff, if you are reading this, I want to thank you all for what you guys have done to keep this site looking better than ever. I know that one thing about the errors was a bit nitpicky, and I am sorry for that. But I thank you for all that you guys have done, I am proud of you all for making this site.
Thank you for everything, and thanks for reading this review!

A great site if you want to be more of a Pokemon Breeder rather than a Pokemon Trainer, with original "Fake"Mon and Mega Evolutions procedurally released.

So, I actually played the original Pokefarm quite a while ago and due to shifting interests my attention flew elsewhere and I left the game. However, recently with nothing better to do I came back to Pokefarm to feel around again, mainly for nostalgia purposes. I have to say I've gotten hooked again, not only with the simplicity of the game but also with the potential player interaction. I have always been a Pokemon fan so coming back to this game gave me so much nostalgia and happiness. Compared to other interactions with people I had on the internet, I found this place to be much more well maintained with much more respectable people. (I had actually referenced how this place taught me much of my internet etiquette in a paper I wrote previously to a class, leading a great deal of nostalgia for me.)
If there were any complaints I would have it would still be towards the server perhaps, there are still some laggy issues I've been having but I know it's a work in progress. Furthermore, I'd like to see the PF1 transfer back, but again, I know that's planned for the future. Any true unhappiness I would have with the game would probably come down to RNG, my own luck, so--I would say overall that this game is utterly wonderful, so addictive and that it's a joy to be back.

- Clicking people's Pokemon is pretty relaxing.
- It's nice to be able to play a Pokémon game (even non-canon) of quality such as this even when I don't have my 3DS on me.
- PokéFarm Q is the best fanmade Pokémon game out there, even in its unfinished state.
- The staff is super friendly and they respond quickly to issues.
- The balancing is done well, and the only things I could think of to improve it are minor.
- Has room for growth in not only the number of users, but also the content of the site and the various minigames present within.
- Super hard to get Credits without trading for them.
- Premium Boxes don't feel like they're worth it. They just kind of happen and you pray for something good but generally get stuff that's "meh."
- Melanistic and albino sprites are generally quite unappealing, visually. The color choices could use improvement.
- The Market is the cancer of this game. People obscenely overvalue their items on the MB.
- Still deadlocks and/or lags sometimes. The site could definitely run more smoothly. (Understandably the site is a work in progress.)

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! ^-^
