Pocket Frogs Excel!

Pocket Frogs - NimbleBit
Tip #1 After your baby  frog has hatched – take him to the pond, hop around and eat flies – he’ll be mature real soon (each fly takes away about one minute of it’s mature time). Also the bigger the fly, the more the time to mature is reduced.
Tip #2 A new frog will not contain a color or pattern that does not appear on at least one of the parents.The only exception to this is the base color – sometimes breeding two frogs with different base color together there is a small chance that the new frog will have a glass body.
Tip #3 One of the easier and less involved ways to make some extra money is to keep two copies of your most expensive frog and then breed them. If you want to eek out a little extra, keep a habitat with lots of +happiness items and move the frogs into there for awhile before you sell. While they’re sitting in there getting happier, you can have another set of 8 in egg form. Rinse and repeat.
Tip #4 Cross breed level 1 frogs with level 7 frogs gives you 300+ xp each time. If you have the coins, you can always just sell the eggs for a lost and keep breeding.
Habitat effect on frog happiness
Each frog gains about half a percent from each point of scenery happiness, they also gain happiness from each other frog in the tank. They gain this happiness over time.
Hatching time
The time it takes to hatch is 10% of the total time. So 10 hours would be 1 hr or 30 mins would take 3 mins.
In Pocket Frogs, there are 13,800 different breeds you can collect, create and share. Each breed is determined by three genetic attributes: Base Color, Pattern Color, and a Pattern. The name of the breed is given by the names of the attributes used to create the frog, eg Green Voila Marmorea. There are 23 base colors, 15 pattern colors and 40 patterns. Patterns become unlocked as the player levels up.

  • Pocket Frogs has many Awards for collecting specific species which you can tap on the "Awards" section and read about.
  • Once you know of a specific species you need, it is up to you to figure out what species you will end up with when two different species breed.
  • You do not have to have 2 of the same species to breed in the game but you can breed two of the same which will give you another of the same species.
  • When you want to see possible combinations tap on the Main Menu and then tap on the "Breed" button.
  • This will take you to the Breed Screen. Here you can choose which frogs you wish to breed together and see the possible outcomes.
  • The cost of breeding these frogs will be shown at the bottom of the screen.
  • If you want to proceed with breeding them simply tap on it and an egg will be placed in your Nursery Habitat.
  • If not, just continue on checking it with different breeds until you find a combination you can use to win awards.
  • NOTE - If you have the time write down the combinations to save you time in the future or take screen shots when in the breed screen.
  • NOTE - If no species are available that can breed with each other you will be notified.
  • Good luck! :)

  • If I am going to sell a frog I always tame it first so I can then catalog it incase it is one that I think I could need at a later date.
  • I always make sure my frog is happy to the max before I sell, it then will sell for the maximum amount which obviously means more coins for me.
  • If I need some extra coins I get my rarest frog and breed it with another of the same kind to tame and sell.
  • Not everyone is aware but if you have a baby frog in the nursery and you need to speed it up to become an adult, you can take it to the pond and whilst taming it and eating flies it speeds the growing process up.
  • If you are going to visit the pond, always try to have a few spaces available in your nursery. You are certain to bump into another frog and it is worth breeding with them if you do!
  • The same goes for your mailbox always try to keep it lower than the max 8 items for two reasons. Firstly if you are visiting the pond you may find a present you want to keep. Secondly, one of your friends may want to send a frog but you wil not be able to recieve it unless you have room.

At any time you can take any of your frogs back to the pond, which will allow them to fill up on dragonflies to increase their happiness. In addition, you will randomly stumble across presents which could be an additional frog, new backgrounds or objects for your habitat, coins, or the various in-game consumables. Also, there are other frogs bouncing about the pond which you will run in to, and when you jump to the same lilly pad you have the option to breed with said frog.
Initially, breeding frogs seems fairly simple but as you progress further in to the game it actually gets quite complex. Basically, frogs have three traits: Their base color, their pattern color, and the pattern itself. When you breed two frogs you’re shown the possible outcome, which could be up to 8 different combinations of colors and patterns. You can either breed frogs just for the fun of creating new frogs with cool colors and patterns, or you can shoot for the various goals in the game.
Pocket Frogs is host to tons of different awards (each coming with their own experience point bonus) which involve breeding to collect a certain number of specific frogs of various colors. You can either complete these challenges entirely on your own by breeding your existing frogs and collecting new ones either by buying them with coins at the in-game store, finding them in the pond, or breeding with other frogs in the pond. Alternatively, if you have other friends playing the game, they can send you the frogs you’re missing (or the ones you need to breed with) via an in-game mail system. In addition to awards, there are also frog requests that you can take which act like an in-game quest system that require a specific breed of frog. These are completed the same way.

Tip # 5

Pocket Frogs - NimbleBit
As you level up, you’ll be able to buy more habitats – up to 8 total. You can also Catalog mature, tame frogs. This allows them to be re-ordered at any time. There’s a limit to how many frogs you can catalog, they cost more than their max sell price, and they take the same time to get through the mail system as buying them does. But if you’re thoughtful about cataloging, you can get most of your color and pattern options safely in there so you’re free to fill your habitats up with scary breeding experiments.

Pocket Frogs 101

Tip #1: Big Flies = 10 points towards the next level. All other flies gain no points after your frog has reached 100% happiness. So, if you would like to search for gifts and are at 100%, just go for the largest flies.

Tip #2: Check out the "rewards" star on the home menu. Try to arrange your frogs in an organized manner. I have copied a list here for you to look at while surfin' the pond. If you recieve a gift of a frog, you know whether to keep it or let it go.

Tip #3: There can only be 8 frogs per habitat, and habitats aren't easy to come by. So, be choosy when recieving gifts and breeding. Set goals according to the "rewards" chart and stick with it.
