Tutorial

The tutorial is a 4 step process that a user must complete before gaining access to all features of PFQ, with activities dictated by Professor Holly. Before completion of the tutorial a user cannot trade, post to forums, or post in the site chat.

Step 1: Hatch Your First Egg

Upon starting a PFQ account and agreeing to the terms of service, the user then picks a Starter Pokémon. Don't worry about not being able to adopt all of them- both the lab and the shelter will allow a user to adopt all the starters, it just might take some time.

The starter egg starts with a significant portion of its EXP bar already filled, but there's still work to be done. This introduces the most basic feature of PFQ: clicking. Click other users through users online or click those who've helped out with Clickback.

Reward for completion: 50 Credits

Eggs need a lot of warmth to hatch, so they need to be held by interacting with them. Interact with other user's Pokémon to attract their attention and they may return the favour!

Step 2: Adopt and Hatch Eggs to Fill Your Party

One pokémon down and five more to go. Load up on lab eggs and keep clicking. These eggs will not come with part of their EXP bar already filled, but do not distress over 2k, 5k, or even 10k EXP needed to hatch. Most users will clickback, so as long as one doesn't give up, they will get there eventually.

Reward for completion: 400 Credits

Have you seen how other users have a lot more Eggs and Pokémon in their Party? You can have up to 6 at a time! Let's try this by adopting some more Eggs from the Lab.

Step 3: Make Room in Your Party

As one of the quicker steps, this introduces the concept of Fields. One doesn't have to limit themselves to 6 Pokémon, one can have as many Pokémon as they can afford to buy fields for.

Reward for completion: 10 Credits

Your farm grows at an amazing speed, keep this up! But now your Party is full and you can't adopt any more Eggs.

Step 4: Adopt from Shelter

This part of the tutorial introduces one of PFQ's most vital pages: the Shelter. Here a user can adopt other Pokémon to fill their party. All one needs to adopt is an Shelter Pass. Professor Holly grants the user a Shelter Pass C, the lowest tier Shelter Pass which can be upgraded as more Pokémon are adopted fro the Shelter. When a user releases a pokémon or egg they no longer want, they will end up in the Shelter as well. And other users will release all sorts of eggs, so keep an eye on this. If one holds their cursor over an egg and it doesn't give a species of pokémon, that means this egg is a new variety the user hasn't hatched yet. It's a great way to fill up the Eggdex and Pokédex.

Reward for completion: 1,234 Credits + Shelter Pass C

And with that, one is done with the PFQ tutorial and Professor Holly grants them full access features of the site.

The Shelter keeps all Pokémon and Eggs that were either released by their Trainer or from the DayCare.
