This website is a fun place for pokemon fans like me to have some fun with others who share the same likings. I think this place would be more fun if you made the trading system more public. Such as a GTS type of format. You can only see trades that you offered to a specific person or that they offered to you. It would be great if you could offer to everyone, just like on the market board. Thanks!

pokefarm does it's job well, hatch eggs and click pokemon but there are a few things with the site and the community that aren't that great! don't pass on it, even if you only play for a few months, i've been here daily since i joined... i'm addicted to it and i adore hatching pokemon even if i'm the kind of player who does daily clicks and doesn't click again until reset, getting that melan or albino is so satisfying :>

pokefarm is real fun to play with my buddies! there are some pretty critical issues like complicated UI that makes beginning difficult, consistent lag on the entire site, and needlessly expensive required items...certainly fun, but wish the UI was updated, the server could be consistent, and staff would consider suggestions u__u suggestions arent often taken sadly, even with massive user support. it's a fun game but makes me sad that several issues are so often ignored.

I was on the original pokefarm site years ago. I admit I had forgotten that I'd moved over here till about a week or so ago. Trying to learn where everything was/is on the site was a bit of a hassle. Things are hidden under several other tabs which can be pretty confusing for new players (or returning like myself).
Personally I prefer the old way of doing summons rather than having to unlock x amount of the pokedex just to be able to summon them if we pull one from a box.
My only other complaint would be how tedious and long it is to earn credits when everything is so freaking expensive to purchase. I get that they don't want the "instant gratification" factor but for those of us that work and can't always be online to click all day long, it's a big let down...especially when selling things on the market takes some credits just to post said item.
I do like the fakemon and original mega evolutions though. Those are creative and some of them are really nice looking.

been playing on and off for a year or so i dont know for sure. I find it okay to play just not something i'm hardcore into.
Best part is the egg updates where they hatch after so long. Worst part is probably having to do interactions and leaving your pokemon in your party for them to lvl up for evolutions. No one really does any mass clicking anymore unless the user has pkrus.

Some of the individual section rules are dumb (I've had a problem with the Contest rules in particular for a while now) and the game gets grindy/frustrating/unfun when you don't have irl cash to spend on ZC, but it's a good game to waste your time on if you have nothing else to do. Coding isn't the most accessible to those that don't know it very well, but if you are experienced with it you can do quite a lot. The mass release option is nice but irritating to use as it doesn't always register your clicking and it doesn't have the drag-to-select feature that mass moving does. Some things such as Day Care eggs and (early) shelter adoptions are restricted a little too much for a player without Hypermode or ZC to spend. Overall I have both a lot of criticism and a lot of praise, and the game is fun on a surface level.

So, maybe it's not appropriate for me to post a review three days after joining the game however I understand for a website that has been going as long as this one it can be hard for the devs to fully see what newcomers do. So with that, I've got a few suggestions to improve the new player experience.
- The current website UI is extremely confusing to a new player.
I think the first day or so of my playing the game was mostly spent trying to figure out what every icon in the top bar is, what every section of the site does and how to play efficiently. Everything important feels like it's buried beneath menus, sort of like how Neopets was back in the day when you'd have to pretty much find all of the important functions yourself hidden within different worlds.
I suggest replacing the current "middle bar" with a set of categorized drop-down lists, as right now it's oddly time-consuming to reach vital functions of the game. It's inconvenient to have to load the "farm" page just to look at inventory or access trading, fishing or the dojo? I realize there is a bookmarks page but I feel that is not adequately explained by the tutorial.
I just feel like the current UX is incredibly poor, the website feels extremely daunting by modern web design standards and it's likely to scare off some younger players who didn't grow up with the early 2000s web. From the second you look at the website you're bombarded with endless different buttons and functions and very little of it is explained very well.
- The current tutorial is woefully inefficient at explaining the majority of the game's systems.
I feel like much more detail could be added to the tutorial, for example, it took me watching a YouTube video to understand why interactions were important and how Pokérus functions. I really shouldn't have to read the Wiki to understand how to level up and evolve Pokémon, you know?
There is an easy fix to this, short of redesigning the entire website. When you first start a new account certain buttons and functions should not appear on your UI, if you hide functions and only bring them into view as you progress through the tutorial it gives you a chance to explain everything as it becomes relevant and prevents you from overwhelming a new player with information they do not need to know right away.
- The currency system is very offputting.
Now I'm not saying this as a complaint about the currency system as a whole, I don't really mind it. I just feel like the site could do a better job explaining what it is, why it's there and what you can do with the different currencies. After a few days of playing I've realized that, as free-to-play games go, the currency system is relatively fair. However when I first joined it almost immediately put me off the whole website.
I know a lot of the negative reviews are talking about the currency system being unfair, and I think a large part of that may just be that it just isn't very well explained to a new user.
As a whole though, I'm enjoying the website. I can tell there's been a lot of time and effort put into it over the years, I just feel like it's suffering from a bit of the bloat that comes with a game that has been around for so long.

I hafta say some things I like 'bout PokeFarm Q,
for one thing it's awesome & they got not only gen 6-7 sprites(plus fakemon & custom mega evos,) but they also got hybrid pokemon, my fav so far has to be the shinxle evolution line ^^
one thing it lacks is possibly the battling, I'd like it if they had added NPC trainers
but that's my opinion, still a good game

The play is good and the art is wonderful but it has a particular mod that is not only rude but feels it is okay for them to be rude because they are a mod. Instead of coming in a simply asking a few questions they come in with am assuming attitude, guns blazing then wonder and scratch their head as to why people respond to them defensively and try to make excuse after excuse instead of admitting they could have handled the situation better.
I may still show up from time to time but I don’t particularly feel welcome or safe around an uneducated and uncontrollably ill tempered person in power. Thank you

If you have a problem with a mod, we have a procedure for that. Please contact Garthic. As you were directed to do by the allegedly "rude" mod in question.
We can't resolve the issues if you don't use the resources we provide to help resolve those issues.
