I've played this game for a weeks now, and I do like it. It's nice to casually just interact with Pokemon and other players, however I usually leave it at that. When it comes to interacting with the community the staff, I have seen a lot of concerning stories from ex-players with screenshots of things. If someone wanted to get closer to the community or staff, I'd say be careful.
However, if you're like me and only interact with people as far as feeding their Pokemon, commissioning art or holding their eggs then this game is pretty good. Definitely a good time-waster and a good way to make your finger a little sore lmao. The game has a good "Player Rank" system that seems to be only for aesthetic and gives you rewards each time you "rank up" by adding different Eggs & Pokemon to your Dex.
The way you obtain legendaries is unique and still challenging but not enough to frighten any players.
Like I've said - If you just want a game to waste time on without actually talking to people, it's good. I don't agree with there being a 'Premium Currency' aka Zophan Crates and that you can purchase sprites with it. People can already obtain sprites via Tokens, Referrals and more; I would've expected the ZC sprites to be purchased for a large amount of GP. It doesn't seem worth it, especially when we're paying real money for a sprite.
Outside of that, Hypermode and Ubercharm, there's not a lot of paywalls. If you want the extra help you may need to save up on Credits or Gold Poke to purchase vouchers or more in the Market, so you can bypass them all together.
Total Review; 3/5. It's decent in my honest opinion, and while I'm wary of the people here it is a nice game to waste time on. I wouldn't spend money on it just for sprites, Hypermode or Ubercharms though. I'd say it's easily appropriate for anyone 15+ just because people on the internet in general aren't what they seem.

This game is fun, but really sad. It litterly feels like you can't afford anything except selling everything you have for just one thing. It's upseting. On the other hand, it is not that fair how Ihave about a 200 chain + uber + charm and not even a single shiny. And then with Hypermode, you get shinies a lot more. So i'm wasting 500 zc just to boost my pokeradar and some other things.
Another thing I dislike is how holding eggs help them hatch. The only help like 3 minutes per egg.
This game is fun, getting a melan and things, but it needs inprovment.

Mechanically, this game is wonderful. Clicking parties is easier than ever and mass clicking is no longer difficult on the fingers. Managing and collecting different Pokemon is a lot of fun. The gem and badge mechanics are clever and offer a challenging long term goal. Economically, I love how all three currencies have value. None of them are useless and can be traded with other users for what they need.
My main issue with Pokefarm Q is the Tournament system and the lack of an end state. In most games, there's a point that players reach where they've finished the main quest. Then, they can focus on side quests and personal goals. The main quest for Pokefarm Q, which is completing the Pokedex, never ends. Every month, there's new Fakemon. Players have to sacrifice sleep to place in the top 100 to get the egg or pay heavily for Tokens to buy the egg. Tournaments happen every month, meaning without constant upkeep, the Pokedex will never be completed.
What should have been a challenging goal is now a tedious chore.
Should completing the Pokedex be easy? No, of course not! But it shouldn't be something that requires constant maintenance either.

I love the community and art, but this place lacks a lot of things. It would be a much better place if there weren't so many rules. And if It had a group chat that everyone could participate in. And no not discord. Not everyone has discord, or the storage capacity to download it. And even if they do how are we supposed to make friends without being able to talk to each other. I'm not talking about pm either bc they are kinda one sided if the other person doesn't want to talk. A group chat would make it easier to make friends and connect the community better. With it you don't feel like your bothering everyone bc it a participation thing. And for me that's a deal breaker. I might still pop in every once in a while but I don't want to actually play until some rule are changed or you all start listening to your community instead of marking every idea that opposes yours as spam.

If I may be so frank, your issue with our community is that we moderate it **too well?**
And you want a chat system, but not the chat system we have. And a way to communicate with other users, but not the way to communicate with other users that we have. I don't see how we can help improve here, since you've already shut down the options we have available.

Been playing less than a year and not exactly sold on this being the "best" as a lot of reviewers claim. I've never tried sparring because I have no interest in it nor has anyone sent me one. The community here is a mixture of good and bad. Aside from a good few players, there seems to be a few bad apples here too.
While it does have the free to play aspect, most of the other items you would have to pay to obtain or find other players willing to sell them - and sometimes at higher than okay for most prices. Forums are hit and miss and honestly, I rarely use them. I only use them for journal posts but nothing more. Staff I can't say are rude 100% but one MiT was just a bit rude over a journal post and when I told them that they should've given me an opportunity to correct it because I'm not familiar with UK laws and they never bothered to point that part out much to the dismay of those that say "read the rules" - and they responded like I'm not making sense and thus I didn't bother to try talking more sense into them.
It just seems like most of the friendlier players are just the normal trainers themselves and not part of the staff.

Don't get me wrong, I love this game and love how much they add (keep doing a great job on adding stuff). Sometimes I have nothing to do, I feel we should be able to do actives to hatch eggs faster and I'm not talking about daily levels, I'm talking about like a system where we interact with others or go on scouts, or even post on threads to speed up the egg hatching process. I just don't want to wait 3 hours for my eggs to hatch. If niet is reading this pls take this into consideration.

i think this is a great website teaching you about pokemon but sometimes this game can get SO BORING because everything is time you wait. it was fun at first, but i think this game can also get boring because of the lack of things. it also doesnt offer a good tutorial it still can be confusing.
does PFQ credit the real pokemon becuase some of the stuff are rip offs. not being mean, but im just expressing my thougts. <333
the good part is that the game is full of suprises and the art is pretty good too. everything comes together well, so despite the negative parts of this website, this is till recommended

So I have been on this site forever and yeah only recently got back into it- was pleasantly surprised to see so many new things! Don't get me wrong I really appreciate it and all the work that goes into it!
However- its a lotta work to do some things sometimes- the mass click events sure are cool but at the same time it takes HOURS to get that many interactions. And its not exactly kind on the wrists// fingers :')
Additionally - I find it frustrating how the EXP boosts only are considered if they are in the persons party.. If I have to click 10,000 times I feel like it would be fair that my eggs get a boost from clicking fields!- maybe this could be something to consider for larger events like that?
Also scour missions! The fact that you can only really get 1 item unless its a berry or even sometimes nothing is frustrating- especially when I don't even use the accessories… also upgrades cost so so much if you don't wanna pay ;-; It took me SO much selling to even get the shiny hunter and that was just credits I have SLOWLY started to get the pokegold for everything else and still need about 3000 more and I only can get it from trading my credits OR by the rare box//scour..
Anyway- these are just a few bits that I personally find frustrating but ultimately understand that it needs to be profitable for you guys + still a challenge. Thank you for all your hard work in making this community!.

I like the collection of pokemon aspect, that's fun and good. i personally am frustrated by all the arbitrary limits on things, like the fact that you can only adopt 6 eggs a day and a max of 12 without paying for egg vouchers. The fact that you can get nothing from scours is also kind of dumb for how long they take. Like it's very hard to progress without either spending lots of money or time, and i don't have either.

In the case of the adoption limit, if that didn't exist, the Shelter would be barren. It's specifically there so that stuff gets put in the Shelter. If you've ever used the Shelter for Eggs even once, then you have benefitted from the adoption limit being in place.
