KFCutman: "Excellent game with major flaw"★★★★☆
Posted: 08/Jan/2017 00:25:18 (3 years ago)
I've been playing PF1 for quite a few years, and I continued until its inevitable demise, then I went to PFQ, played it and loved it just like PF1, and then went for a looooong hiatus.
I finally returned roughly in the August of 16' and played daily continuing onwards. Many issues I had before are gone, mainly eggs taking way too long to hatch, and having summon locks becoming flat out impossible, and I ended up being used to other sites more.
The various updates I see by the staff team always make me excited for what will arrive next.
In fact, the staff team easily has to be the best I've experienced in my life.
Overall, an excellent online game, and I do plan on spending some cash for some ZC in the future.
Sadly, there is one fatal flaw that prevents it from making it five stars.
Simply put, the variety, namely the species in the shelter, has to be amongst the worst I've ever experienced. If a lot of people are hunting, say, an Absol, that's all you'll see in the shelter, alongside the other boring and unoriginal hunts, especially to Eevee. On the other hand, if a small handful of players are hunting, say for example, a Surskit, you'll see an egg of it once in two blue moons.
This is a HUGE flaw, as it openly encourages hunting what other people like, even if you hate it, and penalizes being unique with having to pay for lots of Daycare passes. I know this is generally an issue with a lot of Pokemon sites, but I feel it could be improved if there was a limit on how many times an egg could appear in a shelter rotation before being impossible to see for the next two or three refreshes.
I recall hunting a Shiny Bergmite back in the days of Hypermode, and it was painful. I saw roughly two total Bergmite eggs in the shelter, the rest from pure luck in the lab, and I did not hatch a single variant. Yes, there's bad luck and good luck, but it still caused a big dent to my currency and items.
I also feel that new players who finally get the ability to hunt are penalized harshly, and that's exclusively due to them not having as much as other players, and this is especially terrible if they walk down the same path I took and chose to hunt something that is incredibly difficult to find.
Either way, all it could use is a few changes so that every player can feel unique and not just another "Vulpix Hunter No. 478". Still a good game, don't get me wrong.

I have spent quite some time now on this game and I have to say that it has grown, in both popularity and in the aspect of work that has been done to it. Thanks to some amazing coders / artists that this site has on its team.
I would recommend this game to any pokémon lover or just someone who likes clicking.

I enjoy the site, it's good to see it active with lots of updates and a great community. However, a lot of things cost zc, which of course I understand since the site needs money to run, but it's still not very fun. However, the site is still pretty good, and I'll probably continue using it for a while.

Mauhea: "My Favourite Site by a Mile"★★★★★

Without doubt PokéFarm Q is my number one obsession and all-time favourite collectable site (in fact it's the only site I visit these days!)
I've been playing PokéFarm since early 2011, back on PF1. Apart from a short hiatus when PFQ first launched I have visited daily. The reasons for this are plentiful. There's something to do every day - from filling up the dex, to hunting shinies, to meeting new people in the Forums. With the inclusion of tasks and the Albinos and Melanistic dexes even veteran Arceus Rank players have plenty of goals to set themselves and more than enough reason to keep coming back.
The site is in a near-constant state of development with a whole host of exciting new changes on the horizon. Both Niet and the amazing Art Team seem to always be hard at work ensuring promised features are brought to us in a steady stream. New content is added monthly at a bare minimum in the form of an exciting new Mega Pokemon rewarded on completion of the challenging Mass Click Weekend.
The site's staff are truly amazing and work hard to meet the needs of the ever-growing user base. They are polite, helpful, and I personally have been greatly touched by their kindness, friendliness and even generosity.
I hope any new users reading this will come to enjoy the site as much as I do. And that existing users share my gratitude for this amazing site and community.

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!
