Dachsbuns: "The Pros and The Cons!"★★★★☆
Posted: 03/Feb/2024 19:36:40 (24 days ago)
I’ve been playing this game, actively, for the past year. Which is, in concept, a good thing!
For the game itself, it’s a wonderful concept. It’s extremely addictive, fun, and it’s a great way to spend time and effort! It’s rewarding to collect your favorite pokemon, to join events, to hatch specials.. all of these things make pokefarm an extremely addicting game, and very fun!
There are two issues, though.
If you’re not willing to spend on the game in invest in every boost, you likely won’t get many specials. TO BE CLEAR: you CAN get “zc” (the primary currency) through other means that real currency, such as scouring for boxes, selling breeding pairs, etc. It’s just very slow. And also, there was a new log in bonus added for 10zc every 5 days, which helps if you’re active! But it IS possible!
The other main issue; the moderation. Every experience I’ve had with moderation has given me SEVERE panic attacks, which I normally have no issue with. If I’ve done something wrong, I will usually do my best to fix it in accordance to the claim made. The primary issue is the way they tell you that you’ve done something wrong.
They’re cold, short, and even once; the moderator didn’t even tell me WHAT rule I broke. They sent me, a dyslexic person, to the rule page, and I had to make a list of things I DIDN’T do wrong. They told me AFTER the fact of which specific rule I broke, but I was already paranoid and anxious at the point. I informed them i was anxious at the encounter, but they didn’t show a single ounce of concern, or to even think to lighten up how they were handling the situation. They only apologized after I informed them a SECOND time that I was anxious, and I just deleted the entire thread I was being informed about.
In short; the moderators need to be more friendly. They scare people away from playing, and interacting with others. I’ve seen users end up leaving the site due to the moderation alone. And while I absolutely adore the gameplay, the users running the site are making me want to leave due to anxiety.
TLDR: The game is fantastic in concept; it’s fun to hatch, collect, and it’s great for pokemon fans of all ages and kinds. But, it’s very grind heavy for non paying players, and the moderation can be very “cold”, and genuinely just… scary.
I’m giving it four stars. The game, again, is fantastic. It’s everything you could hope for in a clicker. But the moderation makes the game less appealing to a lot of users.

It's nice and don't get me wrong I love this place but I do have a few small issues with the mods. Now don't get me wrong I understand the mods are trying their best and they have their own issues outside of this website..but some of them come off as really harsh at times and even sometimes act really superior in a way (don't get me wrong I think some of them are super cool!)? Once again I understand it, modding is hard and i can't control how the mods are feeling these days. I get it. But sometimes it's to a point where I..kinda feel genuinely scared of them in a way? (Honestly I feel anxious even writing this review, like they're gonna message me and be upset about this.) I think this is mostly a me issue though.
TLDR: Love the game, mods kinda scare me.

Es un buen juego para pasar el rato a pesar de lo poco que ofrece. Amo la comunidad a pesar de sus defectos. Sé que la gente tiende a criticar a Niet y a los demás administradores, pero están haciendo lo mejor que pueden. Los nuevos fakemon son interesantes de ver. Mi única preocupación es que la variante Pokémon y la mamá falsa tardan más en evolucionar.

PFQ is really fun, though there are some changes I think would fit better: One is that I think the rewards for doing the tasks are too low, for example: Mega evolving five Pokemon only gives you a little more than 3,000 credits, and you rarely obtain mega stones, and the ones in the market are very expensive. For beginners, I think starting off easy with small amounts of credits and easy tasks are fine, but as the player progresses, I feel like they should be rewarded more for harder tasks. Another change is to create more ways for players to obtain currency, more specifically ZC and GP. You can only get ZC (as far as I know) by buying it with real money or another player trades you ZC, but that's it. But overall, PFQ is a really fun game and I suggest it to everyone!

There's lots of cool features here, but if I had to pick one, it's Pokemon genealogy. I like how you can see all of the ancestors of a mon all the way back to a lab egg. Only downside of this site? It's addicting. VERY addicting.

It’s fun. I have a good time clicking on the mons and watching the numbers go up. I like the Pokémon designs, both old, new and fake. I think the game has good elements and it’s enjoyable.
My main problem is that it’s pretty ptw or pay to win. I’m not opposed to this for most mmo sites like this one. But it’s Pokémon. They’re known for issuing C&Ds fairly regularly against fan games with paid elements.
Personally im curious as to why this one hasn’t been taken down or forced to stop the micro transactions.
But it’s fun and I like it. Ptw tho

This is a nice game the people who play it are very nice and I get help from players who have been playing for some time
The fake mom are so cool
It’s a little hard to get some items or Simon items like I have to complete a whole Pokédex area to summon them even if I bought the item form what it seems but other all pretty good game
Still like most games it’s pay to win

Thanks to Niet for making the world of Pokémon accessible to the web! 4 stars because dark mode is not easily accessible, but otherwise, very good.

I love this site and I agree with everyone who gave it 5 stars, but it's really time consuming and pay to win.

Me and my sibling both found this game recently and it's pretty fun so far---it doesn't take too much time off your schedule, especially when it's just to click a few pokemon and start a scour mission. While I'm not obsessed with the idea of ranks, I still enjoy filling my pokedex/eggdex and claiming the rewards. This site does have a LOT more users than the petsite I came from, making it more intimidating, especially with the occasional drama in the forums and whatnot, so I keep to myself unless it's to send someone a spar request.
Some people have stated that this game is kind of pay-to-win/play, which I'm not fully against but at the same time don't understand. You can play the game without spending money, but at the same time you do need in-game currency to unlock WF or training, for example. Yes, in-game currency is nice to have for transactions with other players, but...as a requirement? Not my cup of tea.
The art is very cool, especially the custom sprites! The legendaries are so cool, I want them allll! The fakemon are really well-made too and I actually mistook them for real pokemon.
I mostly just chill here with my pokemon and hatch some eggs. I won't do tournaments that often because I'm not an avid player who gets in 1,000,000 clicks a day, but still. Fun to check in on.
