If you feel like wasting some time logging on every couple hours and hoping an egg has hatched or a Pokémon has leveled up be my guest, though I suppose that’s more just how the game is supposed to be. The staff here seem to be a tad TOO strict to the point where one doesn’t want to be a part of the community. This game is actively worked on, something a good amount of other games can’t say. It’s events are fun, but get EXTREMELY tedious if you aren’t hoarding some random item you’d never use through normal gameplay. Personally I wouldn’t recommend this game to people, if you want something to put in a forum signature than this could be a game for you. The only way to get anywhere in this game is via Hypermode which IS available through trading/filling your Pokédex, however if you want anything longer than (30?) days you’ll need to trade with others, which honestly gets to being a hassle depending on time zones and such. This place definitely isn’t a place for people who don’t have an open mind due to others feeling the need to openly tell people about their sexuality/life choices. Honestly the only reason this game is getting 3 stars from me is from effort put in by the developers, asides from that I don’t see any reason to play Pokéfarm Q.

While I certainly appreciate you recognising the effort put in to this game, I must respectfully disagree with your opinion. If all you're doing is coming on and "hoping an Egg has hatched" then I personally think you're playing the game wrong. PFQ is not an idle game, if you want to make progress you need to take an active part in gameplay. The only reason you progress at all is because other players are out making interactions (and if you're not even online, they can't find your profile to do that) so it's only fair if you yourself take part.
Hypermode helps. Of course it does; it's the "premium account" of the game. But it's certainly not "the only way to get anywhere". In fact, it does nothing by itself. What it does is increase the power of your active gameplay, but if you're only coming in to check if things can evolve, well then you won't get much use out of Hypermode.
If you'd like to discuss this further, please feel free to PM me and I'll be happy to talk about it!

all mechanics and gameplay is quite fun, and good! only reason why I don't come back after long amounts of time is the way staff interact with their fanbase.

I run out of things to do kind of fast. Clicking people isn't really fun, just tedious. Would feel more interested if random events could happen when you visited players you haven't seen that day and clicked their pokemon. Something like a little "!" that you click on their page that tells you such-and-such happened and you got a little reward. Like an evolution item or something small like that.
I just want more of a reason than currency to click people. Something to stay online for.

There is nothing Wrong with this; it's just that after a time it can be a bit monotonous to keep doing the same thing with the only real progress being in the pokedex filling (which at times is GREAT, but after a week or so you don't pay to much attention).
It has things added that are semi-interesting (contests, garden, I kinda like the market method) but it's regular and doesn't change much. Once every few weeks there will be a contest for an egg (that you are unlikely to get of the bat) you have pokemon to feed by clicking, eggs to turn by clicking, voting by clicking, etc.
It is very much a click game. You may not get much done without clicking rather often and frequently.
But Poke-farm has very interesting fakemon additions. The admins will visit your suggestions if you post them properly (which is rather simple). And you can get most anything without HAVING to spend money (you can if you want but you don't HAVE TO DO ANYTHING [that is somewhat in the rules])
Can be interesting, can be boring, but as long as one is polite all works, and one can always come back later if one is so inclined.

I have been playing for quite a while, and i really like it on here, but...
it reminds me too much of a clicker game, but with a whooole lot of other stuff
at first i was doing it just to get the bonuses, but after a while i decided it was too boring, just pressing some buttons, over and over, and over and over.
I really wish there was a different way to gain those points, because with all the over stuff to do i just do all that, and i keep on being in the same place, not gaining anything new.
unfortunately, i think it's too late to change it since this has probably been like this since the start.
besides that? it's fun, but i believe it has more potential. unfortunately a lot of these online pokemon fangames i played had that, each of them usually had potential but it had a lot of stuff that was boring.

The game often feels pay to play in order to get anywhere and have the pokemon that you want. I understand that the site needs money to run but with how slow some of the eggs hatch its like it is forcing you to buy hypermode. It is reasonable that legendary/special pokemon take more time to hatch but less special pokemon shouldn't take as long as them.
The sprite work is pretty good but I do not like how a lot of the melanistic pokemon look. They just look rushed or just not good because of the colors that were chosen for them. Dunsparce and Lucario are some of the best examples I have for this but there are more than just that one. There have been good ones but even those get changed constantly. Often the changed ones don't look good to me. Though there has been some good changes. I often make art and recolor sprites myself so I don't see how hard it is for an artist to understand colors and how they work together. Especially if they are being paid to make sprites and art for the site. More work put towards them would be nice.
Getting credits is way too hard in this game because you only get one per click. But at least you can sell things to get credits. GP is rather easy to get from boxes so that is a plus. Yet because it is so easy to get it no one wants to trade GP for credits. I do not like how hyper mode costs so much, it feels almost impossible to get and on top of that, it doesn't last forever. You have to buy it each year/month.
Otherwise I really love the site and collecting shiny pokemon. It's a good way to spend some extra time. The fakemon on this site are super good and you are able to get legendary pokemon from completing parts of your Pokedex. The people on here are pretty nice too for the most part.

the game is pretty good but a little boring after a while it could have some improvements. perhaps small interactive mini games to give users something to do that could earn them some credits

I know this is extremely "un-customer service-like" of me, but I gotta be honest...
You keep violating the rules in silly and avoidable ways. Things like making offers on trades with things you don't have. Bumping threads well before the acceptable bump time. Breaking auction rules by changing the end date. And much more besides.
Being honest here, but your problems are kind of self-inflicted. Sorry...

I won't lie, this game is addicting, but the events are often very unfair, as is the obtainment of shinies. It's almost pay to win. But I still cherish the custom sprites and mindless entertainment.

Given it's history compared to now. The site is still Okay to me.
It's still fun to hunt shinies and meet people.
I think the game should have it's own time server instead of going off of rl time.
There's a lot to get into but still a 50/50 from me.
Good and bad things here. Still fun nevertheless. I guess c:

Hi, just wondering if you could be a little more specific? What good things? What bad things? While your review is of course appreciated, it's difficult to make improvements if we don't know what the problem is. Sometimes we make updates to improve the site, sometimes we explain our reasons why the design is the way it is so that the reviewer better understands. Either way we'd like to resolve things, but with no info to go on it's hard.
Please contact me if you would like to discuss anything.
