The game can be very tedious sometimes, but it's good for people who are into Pokemon and have a lot of time on their hands.

It's a good time killer and I find it adds a lot of interesting concepts to Pokémon.
However, it's probably not a game for those without the patience to passively make your way through without spending money.
It's a grind for sure; it takes a lot of interacting and trading. I've managed to do well enough by passively going and clicking to earn Credits, but it takes persistence to keep with it.
Because of this, I find myself sometimes leaning away from the game, becoming uninterested in keeping up. With the addition of of more monthly, community-based events and mini games, I find it easier to stay interested and active.
My biggest critique? While I've been playing for... 2 or 3 years now (correct me if I'm wrong), I've gotten some friends to join in the last 6 months and they're completely overwhelmed by the events and information and how difficult it is to find everything.
Mods have mentioned taking steps to fix this, and its appreciated.

I'll admit, I used to be here extremely often. My only problem is that over time, it becomes so repetitive that it lacks that fun. I understand loving it still, but after a few years, it's not as fun as it was at the start to get new pokemon every day.

For complete transparency, your threads were deleted because they were indeed spam. It doesn't matter how often or rarely you posted, the threads themselves were spam and were therefore removed.
ToastyHyena: "Addicting Site, However..."★★★☆☆

A very simple but addicting game! Since I haven't been here long I look forward to see what the revamp will change about gameplay and the possibilities of new features! The only thing I have an issue with is that it's quite scary hearing about the stories people are telling here/other sites. I myself haven't had an issue, yet I feel worried about how the Staff here act towards players... When browsing responses here I was confused why people disliked them so much, then after reading after the first sentence I realized nothing personally against them but wouldn't like to meet them after looking at their behavior sadly. (Take 'their' with a grain of salt because I'm talking about the people most brought up as I'm 100% sure that most or at least some of the team isn't rude).

Decent gaming experience but was hoping for a more interactive and interesting games on site ( example: valentines event quest)
After playing for a long time, some of my friends either lose interest or there wasn't any time to play in this site. Since most of the things you do here are buying, selling etc, not very interesting after a long period of time.

I'm going to start off by saying the community is absolutely amazing, easily the best feature. I haven't met ANYONE who isn't friendly and always willing to help.
The forums are also nicely organized, which makes me, someone who can NEVER navigate websites, very grateful!
~But now for the negatives and the reason they lost 2 stars~
First off, some of the staff have not always been nice. Before you bite my head off, they've gotten better and are trying! But sometimes they say something the wrong way and it just doesn't end well. Its probably an accident, but it still happened.
The game becomes repetitive and bland after a few years, but but I guess the game had to be good to capture me for so long. Usually I don't last this long.
Mostly, the game is inclusive toward people that don't pay real money. You could technically collect all the pokemon without ever using money, which I appreciate! Heck, I've gotten pretty far without it! But staff will never be able to deny that there is a specific layer of pay to play. It's incredibly hard to get albinos and especially melans without buying the hypermode or selling your soul and all of your time. For casual, spare time players like myself, it's practically impossible. It took me an ENTIRE YEAR to get 2 shinies and an albino Eevee. I'm sorry. That's not okay. If your main purpose is collecting these pokemon, at LEAST make it easier for us casual people to get them without paying! Not everyone can afford to practically live on here!
Now for something that didn't actually factor into my decision on rating, but has actually driven me to quit that I feel should still be acknowledged. It's less something current than what will happen in the future, but I feel that it shouldn't factor into rating until it actually happens. It wouldn't be fair.
They are changing the site.
Usually I like change, but even I can't bring myself to like this. I've recently started trying more to actually complete the game, or really, my dex. But now they are changing everything. And, as a result, we LOSE everything. I would be supportive of making it more gamelike and adding quests because it gives something to do, but the fact that all of our hard work goes down the drain, I just... AND, if we wanted a quest based game we would find one. The MAJORITY of us are here because we want to COLLECT pokemon. Anyways, I haven't put near as much time or money into the game as many others have, and I'm STILL completely unmotivated to play now. I get that we can get our pokemon back, MAYBE our items, but I still can't believe we have to do MORE work to earn back stuff we ALREADY earned!
So I've decided to slowly fall off the site until the reboot. I can't handle the idea of losing all of my work. When the reboot comes, I will not follow. And I fear you lost several other players as well. For your game's sake, I hope you gain enough new players with the reboot to make up for those you lose.
For the record, I do feel like you should make a poll in the news that people vote in order to show they are quitting. Maybe you could see what an aweful idea this is. Your heart is in the right place, I know, but please. Don't do it.

This collecting site is amazing, and I will not be leaving it any time soon. But in my opinion I feel that it’s too hard to receive currency. Especially ZC. I just don’t want to spend IRL money just for a currency that isn’t that important; only important in this game. I don’t know this is just me rambling and complaining.

I love the way you guys monetize the game, its really fair and balanced. I like that gold can be earned from chests and contests. I also like that there is a healthy player base that keeps currency exchange alive and well. I like also that the marketplace doesn't suffer from too much inflation and its pretty stable most of the time. I also like that the game is bug-free (as far as I have seen) :) good job on that!
My only gripe with the game is the severe lag when too many users are online and interacting. Especially on bonus days. It gets pretty bad. I kinda look forward to those days when multiple bonuses are active, only to be turned off by everything slowing to a crawl.

Posted: 11/Jul/2019 16:26:51 (1 year ago)
the game is fun, the game play is challenging enough to not be frustrating while also not being boringly easy, and I've found out that the player base is kind and helpful.
The small contacts I've had with the staff have been extremely positive and respectful but I find myself more than often finding comments made by the staff that come off as rude and unnecessarily mean, and that fact pulls me off from the game and the community a lot.
while the game itself is fun and gives you a LOT to do, I find it that I'm not always in the mood for clicking and when I run out of taska I just forget about about it for the rest of the day. if you're into these kind of games it's great, but if you need something quicker when rewarding your game play you'll find yourself taking hiatuses more than often.
