Hey guys! Welcome to another week of Sam and Dan Games and Pokemon Tower Defense! Let's get this show rolling.

First of all a lot of people are confused about this latest update. Why are there generation 2 pokemon? Why can't I keep them? Why are there birds in Route 2? Why can't I use the dogs on the new Gym level? Why are you only giving away 10, it's not fair! Well I'm going to tell you!

Most of my success is going to be dependent on how much fun and enjoyment I can provide you guys. I have to keep you guys excited about the game, provide a good flow of content updates, and I also have to keep the game stable and secure. To make something fun you have to have an element of surprise. People are surprised by unexpected and new things. This update was an attempt to shake things up a little and add some nice but temporary surprises.

Guys I will let you decide the fate of the dogs for this game, please vote on the poll and let your voices be heard. I'm listening.
Think about it, it is better to have legendary dogs and lose them than to never have had them at all. Something like that...Also the birds, they are not meant to be captured, they exist to give the dogs meaning. It also plays into the story, Gary has escaped the birds (see the Vermillion Gym level for details on how) and now the birds are going all over the place to find him.

About the non Generation 1 pokemon, Generation 1 just doesn't have enough legendary pokemon to fit into the story I have in mind.

You can't use the dogs in the new gym level because it would have made the level a lot easier which I obviously didn't want.

About the contest, life is a lot about being in the right place at the right time. Those 10 people just happened to be there and they got the job done. The reason I didn't announce the contest is because I didn't have it planned at all. Still I know a lot of you want a reward for beating such a hard level. So next update I will be changing the hard Vermillion Gym into a challenge mode and the prize will be a new avatar for either boy or girl. The avatar will be your character wearing a mask of either Raikou, Entei, or Suicune. Special Thanks to Forum user KimmyLube for creating these mask! Please vote on the poll to pick which mask should be given out for beating the the challenge level. The other two mask will be given out as part of two new achievements that have to do with the challenge level.
Raikou mask, regular colors for boys, and shiny color for girls

Entei Hat

Suicune Hat

WHERE IS MY MEW???! By the time you are reading this all your Mew will be gone. Let me explain a bit of back story on the situation. There was a time not so long ago that you could duplicate your pokemon and even create pokemon out of thin air! Can you believe it?!?!?! Anyways, I want to make sure that everybody who bought Hero edition or Donated in the past doesn't feel like it was a waste a time since everybody was getting Mew. Since I can't really tell which ones are legit and which ones are not in the old system I have to completely erase them and start again. If you ever donated or bought Ninja-ja Hero edition please send me an email with the subject "Mew Permission" and inside include the email you used to pay with paypal and your account email for the game. I will insert 3 lvl 40 mew intro your trading account that you can pick up for any of your profiles. But Sam I traded for my Mew?! I'm sorry to say that I can't really help you with that since I can't tell if the person that traded you actually owned a legit mew.
