A user's Fields may hold their hatched Pokémon; however, they cannot hold eggs. The fields support a "click and drag" to move Pokémon into new positions in the field, from the party to the field, or from the field to the party.
Additionally, when a Fields page is loaded, the system will automatically remember the most recently visited Field from that Farm. This helps users easily return to previously visited Fields after refreshing or closing the tab. These "remembered" fields are forgotten again at site reset.
The fields page is often embedded into other pages through the "Select Pokémon" dialogue pop-ups. This dialogue is presented each time a user is required to select a Pokémon for an activity, e.g. the Daycare.
The fields' page layout may change depending on the page in which it emerges. However, the basic field structure remains the same throughout PokéFarm.
Users can name their farm and their "farm name" is displayed on the fields page.
The farm name can be anything, so long as it follows the Rules. A farm's name can be changed by clicking on the "✍" symbol.
When viewing from the Fields page, the farm name will be preceded by "My Fields," but will appear as "[username]'s fields" when displayed publicly.
Underneath the farm name is the Party section; it displays the Pokémon in a user's party. Under the party section are the fields' navigational controls. The navigation controls consist of three buttons: "Previous," "Field Selection," and "Next."
Clicking on the "Previous" and "Next" buttons will change the field that is active (displayed). The Field Selection button will display the active (shown) field's name. Clicking on the Field Selection button opens a dialogue with all of a user's fields, allowing for quick movement from one field to another.
The Field Options are accessed by clicking the hamburger icon (three horizontal lines) in the bottom right-hand corner of the active field. The following options are available:
- Align to Grid: This option aligns all Pokémon in a field into a grid formation. This formation allows users to find Pokémon that might be hidden on top of one another or that may be otherwise hard to select. This is a temporary reconfiguration and will reset once the page has been exited out of or refreshed.
- Move Pokémon: Allows for users to select multiple Pokémon to move from one field to another. All the Pokémon selected will be moved to the same field and retain their field positions, e.g. if Pokémon are placed in a "Stacked and Sorted" field configuration, they will remain in their "stacked" position.
- Rename Field: Allows a user to rename the field.
- Swap Field type: This option allows the user to swap the field's type.
- Toggle visibility: This lets the user toggle whether the field is visible or hidden to the public. When the field is set to hidden, also known as private, a small lock appears beside the Pokémon count in the field.
- Organise Fields: This option allows a user to reorder their fields. Fields can be moved by clicking the field's box and dragging it. Users can also double-click on the field boxes to toggle its visibility.
- Search Fields: This option allows a user to search for a Pokémon species in their fields, displaying how many of the searched Pokémon the user has and in which fields they are in.
- Buy new Field: This option allows the user to buy a new field to store more Pokémon.
- Mass release: This option allows for the release of multiple Pokémon at once, provided they are all in the same field.
- Sell: This option is used to sell fields. Note that only empty fields can be sold.
Fields are bought with Credits. To buy a new field, click/tap the ☰ menu button in the lower right corner of the field area and choose "Buy new field". The cost of a field increases depending on the number of fields that a user owns.
The formula for determining the cost of a Field is:
100 * floor(x * 1.025(x-1)), where "x" is the number of Fields currently owned. For example, if a user owns 83 Fields, the next Field (the 84th one) will cost 62,800 credits.
A tool to calculate the cost of a field can be found at https://pfq.eltafez.com/calculator/fieldpurchase.
The maximum amount of fields is 251.
Swap Field Type
Users may swap the field type of any of their fields. The field does not need to be empty to use this option. This option skips the need to remove Pokémon from the field, selling, and then rebuying the field. The cost of changing a Field's Type is the same as selling and re-buying the Field. This means the cost increases depending on the number of fields that a user owns.
Fields can be sold using the "Sell" option in the field menu. A field must be empty to be eligible for sale; it is not possible to sell a field if it contains Pokémon.
The sale price is dependent on the number of fields a user owns. The price for the sale of a field is equivalent to half the amount of a new field purchase. Selling one field will earn half the credits required to purchase a new field immediately afterwards.
For example, if a user owns 10 fields, the cost of purchasing a new field (the 11th) would be 1,000 Credits. Therefore, the Credits gained from selling a field would be 500 Credits.
There are 21 unique field types. A field's type grants it unique properties regarding its effects on certain Pokémon. Each field type has its own type-based affiliations (which affect a Pokémon's happiness), background image, and some hold evolution properties.
A Pokémon's Happiness is affected by its Field. This depends on the type matchup between the field's type (attacking) and the Pokémon's type (defending). Pokémon are happiest in a field that either matches their type or is super effective against their type.
A user can see what the Field's Affinity is at the bottom of the field or on the Buy new Field Pop up. The green heart and the Field Affinity indicates the types that will be happy in that field. While the red heart indicates the types that will not be happy in that field.
- Note: Pokémon that are busy will not lose or gain Happiness.
- Note: There is a known bug that sometimes a Pokémon will not gain happiness even after days of it being in the right Field. Take the Pokémon out of the field and then put it back in to fix this.
The different effects of this include:
- Typeless Field: No effect on Happiness.
- Field is 4x effective: Pokémon loves Field.
- Field is 2x effective: Pokémon likes Field.
- Field is 1x effective: Pokémon is neutral towards Field.
- Field is 0.5x effective: Pokémon dislikes Field.
- Field is 0.25x effective: Pokémon hates Field.
- Field is 0x effective: Pokémon despises Field.
A Pokémon's affinity towards a field can result in Happiness loss/gain. A high/low Happiness can cause some Pokémon to evolve.
