Spelling Mistakes


Hello, I'm Riako - from Germany. I'm the programmer of this browsergame!
But why do I tell you that?
Because of one reason: English is not my mother tongue!
I'm trying hard at school to improve my english as best as possible, but it's still not good enough to avoid every spelling mistake all around this site.

So if you ever find any spelling mistake all around this game, please report them here!
(Also grammar mistakes, of course.)

When it says "Catch this rare mew to proove that you were one of the first user on this game!" it should be spelled "prove". And instaed of "one of the first user" i think it should be "one of the first users". But overall so faar your english seems pretty good to me.

At the Daycare:

I've been owning this Daycare for over 40 years now - and I think you can really trust me when it's about caring for your Pokémon! You can leave up to 2 Pokémon simultaneously here so I can raise them. It costs you only 50 Pokédollar per Pokémon for every started hour. Please always pay in forward since I've made bad experience with that.

Rumble Base:

Your Pokémon is equip by a small earphone and also a webcam on its head, so you can always give it commands. Joining the battle has one major advantage: You can tell your Pokémon to catch the opponent in a Pokéball, if you wish!
But if you aren't fast enough to join, your Pokémon will just fight on its on - with an uncertain outcome...

After clicking Emera Town

Emera Town was founded about 230 years ago. Some of the best Pokémon Trainer in the whole world came here to build a village that could act as their resting place. But they didn't find this place by random: The people always called this place the "Ground of precious Treasures", which made this land very attractive. They persumed wealthy treasures to be buried right here - and when they came here they actually found some small Emeralds and some Gems. That's why the inhabitants changed the name into "Emera(ld) Town".

It should be some of the best Pokemon trainers not just trainer :3

Expanding on the Emera Town post up there:

They persumed wealthy treasures to be buried right here - and when they came here they actually found some small Emeralds and some Gems. That's why the inhabitants changed the name into "Emera(ld) Town".

Until now people still suppose many Emeralds to be buried very deep underground - but no one could ever found any further treasure.

In the Union Room on Interacting:
Just another change I think would help.

It says this:

Training is just spending some time with that Pokémon and to learn it some new tricks. It gets some Exp. Points and a Stat value may increase.
To be able to feed you need a berry which the Pokémon likes. Every Pokémon has it's own preferences. Note that the berry will be expended! Like at the training-method, the Pokémon also gains some Experience Points.

This would probably be better:

Training is just spending some time with the Pokémon and teaching it some new tricks. It's Stat Value may increase, and like with the training-method, the Pokémon also gains some Experience Points.
To be able to feed one, you need a berry which the Pokémon likes. Every Pokémon has it's own preferences. Note that the berry will be expended!

(edit)
I must be tired, making such a silly mistake like that. .///.;

Thank you - again! Fixed all of them.
I changed your corrction a bit, Ufimtsev, since the second part in this sentence doesn't make much sense, I guess:
QuoteTraining is just spending some time with the Pokémon and teaching it some new tricks. It's Stat Value may increase, and like with the training-method, the Pokémon also gains some Experience Points.

I found another "Stuck" typo. When clicking a hatched Pokemon and you have berries to feed, it says "Stuck" instead of "Stock"

"Interacting on an Adoptable-website (like this one) is to visit a Pokémon-Profile-Site and choosing an Interaction-Method."
I would suggest changing the "Pokémon-Profile-Site" to "is to visit a Pokémon's summary page". Sounds better I think.

"It's Stat Value may increase, and it also gains some Experience Points."
"Every Pokémon has it's own preferences."
On these two, it should say "Its Stat Value" and "has its own preferences."

Just for understanding, "it's" is short for "it has" or "it is" while "its Stats" e.g. means "seine/ihre Stats".

"Tips for interacting

First of all, the Interaction Panel is REALLY useful if you want to interact. All categories give you a comfort list of Pokémon you could interact with.
Secondly you can do interacting in different ways:
You can either click a Pokémon, press "Random Pokémon", click it, "Random Pokémon" and so on, or you can use the tabbing-method. Don't view every Pokémon Profile in one single tab! Use CTRL + LEFT MOUSECLICK (on most browsers) to open more Profiles in new Tabs. After that, press CTRL + W to close the current tab. Click the Pokémon, close tab, click PKMN, close tab etc.
This way works much faster! But it's on you how you interact - everyone has his own individual trick."

It should be comfortable
