SaltyMissingno: "The game itself works, but paid players rule the economy"★★★☆☆

Posted: 13/Jan/2017 22:52:50 (7 years ago)

Positive: - Site is functional - Regular updates - Bonus counters are a nice feature - Site looks clean, artwork is nice - Tradeable premium currency Negative: - Daycare system - Some paywall - Repetitive gameplay - Market prices I will go into more detail for each of my negative points. First, the Daycare system. I find it unfair how you need to purchase Daycare Passes to adopt more than one egg per day, and how expensive they are. I was doing a shiny hunt with Daycare Passes, and I cannot fathom how selling shinys is profitable considering how expensive the passes are. To users that have all the shiny boosts you can buy with Zophan Canisters, it may not seem expensive. When you only have the PokeRadar+ to work with, the Daycare is a money pit and seems to be paywalled. Shiny hunters can adopt shelter eggs as an alternative, but they should not have to. Paying to adopt eggs from your own breeding pair does not seem right to me. I would like to see the price for Daycare Passes significantly dropped, or remove them alltogether. On a positive note, I do like how eggs are released to the Shelter after a day. This site does have a paywall. It is not the most extreme one I have ever seen, but it does exist. There are free alternatives to some things that require Zophan Canisters to purchase, like the PokeRadar+ for Hypermode, and Lucky Eggs for Super Lucky Eggs. Hypermode users receive free Gold Poke and summons every month, which as another reviewer pointed out seems very pandering towards paying players. The gameplay itself is not paywalled, but shiny hunting is. Shinys are one of the, if not the main thing people look for in trade shops and free-to-play players are considerably disadvantaged because of it. For non-paying players, they only have the PokeRadar+ and Sei's bonus to work with, while paying players have: Hypermode, Shiny Charms, Ubercharms, and Sei's bonus when it is active. It does not seem like a huge advantage, but I have done the math and the numbers should speak for themselves. At a chain of 35 with only the PokeRadar+, the chance of hatching a shiny is increased approximately 594 percent. With paid players, Hypermode allows them to chain to 40 which gives a 3,996 percent boost. There is already a huge difference between free and paid players. Let's factor in the Shiny Charm to the Hypermode percentage which doubles the chances, we're at 7,992 now. The Ubercharm doubles shiny and albino chances, so I multiplied 7,992 by 2 and this brings paid players up to a whopping 15,984 percent increase with all three paid shiny boosts. Paid players are approximately 26.9 times more likely to hatch a shiny with all paid boosts than a free player using the PokeRadar+ (if my math was done correctly). Even if my math is flawed, there is still a huge difference between a paid player and a free player's chances of hatching a shiny. I do agree paid players deserve some perks over free players, however the boosts given to paid players here essentially deny free players a good chance of making a considerable profit. Take a look through the trade shops in the forums and see how many are operated by Hypermode users. Repetitive gameplay does not need much explanation, all there is to do is click. It isn't bad if one can set their own personal goals, but for those that need some sort of achievement system it can get boring. The prices when selling through the Market system are absolutely ridiculous. I understand these prices are set by the players and are pretty much out of staff control, but it does not change how high they are. Users are setting their own currency conversion ratios and this may be a reason why prices are all over the place. Overall, the game itself works fine. If you get into the game's economics, it is highly biased towards paid players. The paywall could certainly be worse, but it is still built pretty high. As my title says, the game works fine but the economy is ruled by those who pay real money.

I've enjoyed the Pokefarm experience for the Pokemon hatching, events and community. It's quite possibly the only site I feel safe as an artist too. Because I don't often see people acknowledge where or who their used images are from on other sites I use. I like the awareness of art theft, and wish other sites adopted the rule too. Hypermode is grand; I think it's worth the money I paid, definitely. Tho I'm not making the most of it, the monthly goodies and shop discounts are nice. And it entices me to renew for next month. I feel the forums could improve somehow... but even if I say that I'm not sure what I think it should improve on or how. I mean only the trades and art section seem the most popular. Is there a way of encouraging a bit more participation or activity on other sections of the forums? Aside from that, I like it here. And look forward to the updates to come. I've introduced a few friends here, they didn't stay, but they didn't leave with a bad impression.

SevenEggs: "It's...okay?"★★★☆☆

Let me just start this by saying that I was addicted to this game for the first week after I started playing. It certainly has it's good points... But I'm not going to talk about those just yet. For me, this game seems to have little reason to come back each day. Sure, you have your daily chains and such but I found after breaking it for the first time I just couldn't find it within myself to try and build it back up (and I was only at 14 days!). Besides the chains I honestly don't see a reason to come back on a day to day basis. And then after that it's almost like.. why come back at all if I'm barely having fun? And on that note, while this game is most certainly not pay-to-win it feels like pay-to-have-fun. Fun for me is hatching Shiny/Albino/Melanistic pokemon. While I possess the IRL funds to be able to purchase the premium currency I just don't enjoy the site enough to justify spending real money. I suppose I could utilise the trading system but all I see of value on this site is Shiny, Albino and Melanistic pokemon and, as far as I understand it, the only somewhat reliable way to get those is to use your premium currency to buy equipment. Perhaps I am wrong, but the fact that I haven't seen any other way might indicate a problem. Another subject I'm almost a little nervous to bring up is the staff. Now I'm not here to name names but certain members of the staff here intimidate me to no end. The fact that some of the first interactions between staff and players that I saw were almost rude in nature has put me off ever interacting or even having the CHANCE at interacting with the staff here. But hey I like to think of myself as a positive person. I'll share some of the of the good stuff about this site too. The community seems pretty nice. As I mentioned above I'm too afraid to even attempt to use the forums and yet I've still managed to encounter nice members of this community. Someone even sent me a gift out of nowhere and it absolutely made my day. The staff are very clear about the updates. I like how sometimes it is discussed in detail, I find it really interesting. Hopefully in the future I'll have more positive things to say! :)

SykSC: "Syk's Review"★★★★☆

Posted: 11/Jan/2017 20:57:56 (7 years ago)

I used to be addicted to this for a couple weeks then I quit due to a sudden change, mainly because I found another game I liked too. Community: The community is kind and sharing, usually willing to give you more than what you asked for. People praise you on certain things, hardly giving off negative opinions or talking behind your back. Chat: I used to be on chat for a whole day, trying to bring up conversations or watching other chats. The people are nice, it is just the fact that you can easily have your msg deleted by a accidental mistake. Also, sometimes people ignore you if they do not know you. Shelter: I love searching in the shelter after the daily reset time because there is much to find! I personally do not have negative opinions about this, but it can be frustrating for IPhone users who have to turn their IPhone sideways for the full details. Market: Prices are fine, except sometimes I think some items are just too easy to achieve when their prices are too low. Costumes should have a reduced price because seriously, who is going to buy a costume for 1.2 million Credits? Mods/Admins: Though some may be like hawks, most of them are fine and really nice to chat to. Mods/Admins judge accordingly and make sure to not make mistakes. I really like this site overall, even if Im not on it too often! ^^

Lyrina25: "My review (Original title, I know.)"★★★☆☆

Posted: 11/Jan/2017 18:09:03 (7 years ago)

I'll take this in chunks. Shelter: I've made posts before about how I wish only one of each type of pokemon/egg would be shown at once. It would be different if we could claim more than one pokemon per screen, but it forces us to refresh or go to the pokemon page anyway so there's no real point in having more than one type. Scour: I bought two scour boosts and I still mostly get junk. Store: I've very much missing the store. The market is very hard to use while on mobile. Forums: I think Journals should be exempt from the delete after such-and-such time. Anyone who ever has had a journal knows that entries can be far and few between. Other: I miss the keyboard shortcuts. It's become more of a hassle to explore the site now that I have less time to do so since I got a job. Other than these points, I think Pokefarm is doing pretty well. I like that it's gotten a bit less pay-to-play as well as it was when PFQ first came about. There's more chances to earn things BUT you can also pay real money to get them.

Lexy2005: "Good but..."★★★★☆

Posted: 11/Jan/2017 02:24:39 (7 years ago)

Pokefarm is good but I think maybe battleing or some think with your Pokémon would be good, also maybe to add something so when you get one of those moments when you whish you had some type of game to play instead of waiting for eggs,berries,ext. would be nice but other then that I would give it 5 stars.

AlexTheCat: "Great! A few things missing though.."★★★★☆

Posted: 11/Jan/2017 00:01:43 (7 years ago)

This game is absolutely wonderful, and has provided much of my knowledge of Pokemon's evolution levels, and their evolution's! Only a few things I've noticed are missing. Such as in Shelter adoptions, we should be able to put the Pokemon straight into our field, so our party can be full of eggs. That way we can collect Pokemon, and not need to worry about having a free slot. And the Sun/Moon legendaries really need to be added at some point. I'd (personally) love to have Solgaleo! But maybe they'll come in a future update? I sure hope so. But honestly, this game is amazing. I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys Pokemon. Just as a little online, time-waster game to play, and of course, to collect their faveourite Pokemon from the games!

Black Jack: "Great Time-Waster"★★★★★

Posted: 10/Jan/2017 22:28:49 (7 years ago)

Although I'm not on here very often, I think this is a really great game. Mindless, allows you to put in as much or as little effort as you wish, and socializing with other players is completely optional... My only complaints are that the Market is a bit wonky, since players have started to charge ridiculous prices for their items, and that the target numbers for some of the events seem way too high for those of us who have other things they need to do outside of Pokefarm. All in all, though, quite enjoyable! :)
