2020-01-11: Video guides added: One for Unlocks and one for General Gameplay
2020-01-10: Done! ALL Hidden Creature unlocks in AbyssRium Pole added to guide. Added some helpful into on unlocking creatures.
2020-01-09: Most hidden creature unlocks added. More info added in general.
2020-01-08: AbyssRium Pole released. Guide released.

Basic Gameplay

AbyssRium Pole is largely identical to AbyssRium in most gameplay aspects with different names on some of the items. Familiarize yourself with the AbyssRium Guide and Pole won’t be too different. The biggest differences are the Hidden Fish unlocks, hence this guide to cover them.

Gameplay Differences from AbyssRium

Battery Saving

Just a minor note, the Battery Saving feature is on by default. If you want better visuals at cost of battery, turn it off in the Gear menu.

The Wall

Much like the original game (and all clickers), AbyssRium Pole has an irregular progression curve where things get harder and easier seemingly at random. A particularly rough patch many players notice early on is around F vitality in AbyssRium Pole.

Creating new fish helps much, much less in AbyssRium Pole, especially as time goes on. To keep progressing, it can be best to forsake creating fish to continue making Ice Berg and Coral upgrades instead.

Tap Tap Fish – AbyssRium Pole releases on mobile platforms

I’ll have a guide on this site soon just like the highly popular AbyssRium guide, but first a simple announcement: Flero Games has released Tap Tap Fish AbyssRium Pole on iOS and Android!

Stay tuned for a guide, though the gameplay seems to be highly similar to the original AbyssRium where I have  a guide right here. The AbyssRium Subreddit is already talking about the game too.

I’ll be livestreaming the game tonight at 6 PM Central!

As a note I am totally unaffiliated with Flero Games/Idle Idea Factory (they don’t even return my emails), and I was TapTap over 5 years before they were!

New Year’s 2020 Event Fish & Expand Items

Like last year’s New Year’s event, it’s just a mini-event with rewards distributed once per day. All you have to do is long in to get the reward, and it seems likely even if you miss a day the event will go a bit longer than the 12 days it will take to get all rewards. Some items are fish, some are Expand items, I’ve noted which each is.

More Gachapon fish were also added. As always, the event is in a slow rollout so it might take a few days to appear. AbyssRium Pole is supposed to launch soon, look for a guide here soon.

The Best Pokemon Discord Bots of 2020

Pokemon is a well-loved and super popular series, and players are always looking for more information and more to do in the franchise. With this short list of the best Pokemon bots for Discord, you and your server members can play Pokemon games right from your Discord app or tab, or quickly look up information without having to open Bulbapedia!

If you’re not the admin of your server, ask someone who is if you think a bot would be valuable to have.

Let me know about other great Pokemon Discord bots in the comments! There’s a whole bunch, so this isn’t meant to be exhaustive, just the easiest and most effective bots to toss on your server and immediately have a good time.

Best Informative Pokemon Discord Bots

Let’s be real here. There’s 890 Pokemon, and about as many Moves, Items and Abilities. These bots will help you keep things straight and figure out how the heck you evolve that Inkay.

Beheeyem

Easily the best quick-reference Pokedex I’ve come across, named after everyone’s least-favorite-to-spell Pokemon Beheeyem. Get quick mainline game info on Pokemon, Abilities, Items, or Moves. No extra set up or weird permissions required, great for any server with Pokemon discussions going on.

Beheeyem even has spelling suggestions, making it useful for Pokecord players trying to sneak in a sly one.

Note: Images for this article are taken from official listings for these bots on their own homepage or top.gg Discord bot listing. Descriptions in images may be out of date and were written by the bots’ creators, not me.

Upsides
  • Best bot I’ve seen to get a quick overview of a pokemon and a link to Bulbapedia (and Smogon and PokemonDB if you prefer)
  • Simple commands, all you need to remember is b.dex (pokemon) and b.help
  • Spelling suggestions help for for children who can’t read good
Downsides
  • Website seems abandoned, though Gen 8 info is being added to the bot so it’s not dead yet
  • Oddly narrow and specific set of commands

Professor Bellis

The least-common bot on this list, Professor Bellis is a pretty new bot that uniquely (as far as I’ve seen) has Pokemon Masters Sync Pair information. It also has a whole Pokemon Masters style game built into it too, though I actually added it to my server just to look up Sync Pairs since Beheeyem doesn’t do that.

Professor Bellis information

Upsides
  • Info most other Pokemon bots lack
  • Built in Pokemon Masters minigame you don’t have to whale for
Downsides
  • Pretty picky syntax
    • For example @Professor Bellis help works instead of !help like the documentation suggests
  • Everyone seems to have stopped playing Pokemon Masters already

Best Pokemon GO Bots

Pokemon GO is by far the most popular Pokemon side game, and due to it’s real world nature there’s a lot of complexities that bots can help out with. Due to my limited Pokemon GO experience I haven’t used them myself, but asked experienced Pokemon GO players what they use.

None of these bots violate Pokemon GO terms of service via disallowed automation, cheating, location emulation, etc.

Meowth

If you have a larger Pokemon GO server it can be a hassle to arrange meet ups, report raids/spawns in specific areas. Meowth can help you coordinate and plan raids and more:

Tap Tap Fish – AbyssRium Christmas Event Tank Guide

Updates:2019-12-02: Christmas event is now live for all users! The dreaded slow rollout appears finally dead. All 2019 event information and all hidden fish have already been added to this guide! Note the Greek Event is still going, probably through all of december.

Support me on Patreon to help me keep making helpful guides! Paypal also accepted.

The event has its own tank just like the Halloween Event, and likely requires the level ~300-400 or whatever coralite in the first tank to unlock (less than a day of effort).

Flero Games announces “Tap Tap Fish AbyssRium Pole” a new Idle Game

Flero Games recently acquired Tap Tap Fish AbyssRium, and they’ve now announced a second game will be created: Tap Tap Fish AbyssRium Pole. I had hoped the acquisition would be a good time to chop off the clumsy “Tap Tap Fish” from the title, but apparently not (and no, the game is not in any way related to SirTapTap).

There’s very little information about the game yet, but iOS and Android app store pre-registrations are open. According to the iOS store page it’s expected very early December 2019, though this could be a flexible placeholder.

The press release is short on gameplay details and what is included makes it sound like the game may play exactly like the first AbyssRium so far, just in a different location but with many of the same fish. The best look into the game is the brief 15 second teaser below.

Hopefully the new game will address many of the complaints the game has accrued since Cheetah Mobile bought it, including arduous events and many bugs.Flero games recently acquired AbyssRium from Cheetah Mobile, though Cheetah Mobile is still publishing the game in China. There still seems to be no new word on the Nintendo Switch version of the original AbyssRium, which Flero Games was originally supposed to develop. With Flero acquiring the game outright, perhaps there will be more news on that front soon.

As you might expect from the creator of the biggest AbyssRium guide, I’ll be checking out the game myself whenever it launches and make some guides to help players!

Tap Tap Fish – AbyssRium Halloween Tank Event Guide (2019)

2019-11-05: A patch added Halloween-themed Expand items to the Main tank, along with the Greek Event. If you don’t have the greek event update yet you won’t see it.

2019-10-18: A patch was released that fixed a vitality curve issue in the halloween event to make the event easier, and reduced the 2019 Jellyfish and Seahorse requirements. The guide has been updated to reflect this.

2019-10-15: All new halloween event hidden fish found! They’re in a pretty nice table, I might fancy up the older hidden fish into tables later on. Video Guide added.

2019-10-14: Get s p o o k e d the update is releasing on slow rollout! See the new fish here. There’s also a new set of “hiding fish” in the space event.

BTW, for those having trouble with Facebook cloud saves or trying to transfer saves between Android and iOS (either way), check this reddit post out.

It is a slow rollout and will take you a while to get. Despite literally every single update AbyssRium has ever done rolling out in the same (stupid) fashion I still get spammed every time it updates about this. Please don’t ask about it.

The Club Guide: Secrets in Crows Crows Crows’ TheClub.Zone

So The Club launched a month ago, and just got it’s “Season 2” update a few days ago! The game has a Dark Secret and some generally confusing aspects, so I thought I’d make a little guide for it! If you like free games like The Club, check out Free Points, my feature of free games worth your time!

Generally, The Club is as advertised; a “music listening/clubbing” MMO; you see other players with randomized names and avatars and can run around, listening to music either by the game’s creators, or submitted by players via The Club Sample Pack.  But there is also a Dark Secret in this game…

If you have reached the end of the Over 18 Door please contact me! If you have footage or images of what’s at the end I would absolutely love to have it. I haven’t managed to reach it myself nor has seemingly anyone else. OBS is a great recorder if you want to try and capture it yourself. Leave any info on the matter in the comments!

The Club Game Info

Developer: Crows Crows Crows
Twitter: @Crowsx3
Genre: Comedy/Club Simulator/MMO
Platform: Any web browser with a keyboard (not mobile)

How To Play The Club

First mosey on down to TheClub.Zone. Controls are basic WASD to move around, mouse to look, space to jump. T opens the Talk menu, C repeats dialog, F toggles fullscreen. The game can be played in any modern web browser on just about any hardware.

I recommend exploring a bit since there’s some fun and easy to find “secrets”, and some…not easy to find secrets we’ll detail more below!

Commentary

There’s a “developer’s commentary” presented in-character from The Club’s CEO, be sure to play it while you play the first time for fun. It’s just below the game window on the club zone website.

Club Level

Initially appearing to be pointless, Club Level increases once per minute in the game. Club Level actually has a purpose, it determines whether you can enter the door marked “No Under 18” or, for the purpose of this guide, the Over 18 Door.

See the Bugs section below for an extremely useful exploit regarding club level.

Change Characters

Go into the bathroom (hang a right after the staircase to the club floor) to find a mirror, and a mystery tunnel. Go into the animated mystery tunnel of sparkles and eventually you’ll fall through the floor in front of the mirror again, and your player name and avatar will be different. Your level and everything else in the game is unaffected. You can repeat this as much as you like.

Chat

Press T to open the Talking menu, you can only use pre-selected phrases that are more for humor than communication, but that’s the game isn’t it? Press C outside of the talking menu to repeat/spam the last selected message as much as you want.

Updates

The game has “seasons”, adding character names, avatars, more music of course, more text lines etc. Sign up for the crowscrowscrows newsletter to be notified of updates, or just to see their famously surreal newsletters.

Ghosts vs Skeletons!

The Halloween update changed the posters and everything, added ghosts and skeletons, and added two new areas. For posterity, here’s a livestream from when it was new to see the fun:

You become a ghost/skeleton by dying; either in the +18 room, or via the new chute right next to the starting hallway to your left. Just fall in the hole to die and become a ghost or skellie. Note that using the mirror to change your appearance will turn you “human” again and remove your undead powers; the only way to see the different avatars/names for skels/ghosts is to die and retry.

Being a ghost/skeleton also changes your dialog options; try them out! They also change gameplay to make the +18 door a bit easier (but no less buggy or frustrating). If you die in +18 as undead, you still die and become a different ghost/skeleton and lose your levels.

Ghosts can jump a bit higher and float slowly down. They can also go through the Ghosts Only door to the right of the stage, and through the Ghost Wall on the second floor also to the right.

Skeletons jump much higher and can reach the bone zone Skeleton Room at the very top of the club from the catwalk.

Secrets In The Club

Abandon all hope ye who enter here; spoilers ahead!

Can Names

Not much of a secret, but be sure to read all the text in the game, especially the posters and pop can labels. Some are pretty funny.

Big Red Button

Going up the right staircase, there’s a catwalk path leading to a button. Tantalizingly, it makes a pressing sound when clicked with the mouse. Less tantalizing, I don’t know what it does, if anything. Leave a comment if you’ve found anything!

Over 18 Door

To camera left of the throne in The Club, there’s a door marked with a “No Entry Under 18”, which we’ll call the Over 18 Door. The door seems impassible, but it becomes permeable the moment you hit Club Level 18!

Beyond the door lies a dreadful platforming challenge. You lose your club level if you fall off the path, meaning you can only try every 18 minutes (unless you achieve the exploit listed below in the bugs section!).

First you have to jump along the clouds, avoiding the black ones; those kill you. Ignore the path to the left of the start of the cloud trail; there’s just an NPC that tells you to avoid the black ones. I already did that.

Watch out for moving clouds; you will NOT automatically move with the cloud, and have to walk constantly to keep your position! The jumping here is very tricky, and almost all players are sure to give up. Don’t feel bad, it’s totally unfair.

over 18 door crows crows crows the club

If you get to the end of the first set of clouds, you’ll get a fun little quiz that would make you ragequit if you weren’t reading this guide. Or maybe you already did. Anyway, I have the answer!

The answer for the current riddle is there’s 112 tiles in the bathroom, or the leftmost cloud. The riddle appears to change each season, so it may be different in the future. Next hop up some simple spires and you’re greeted with a swinging ball bridge.

I haven’t gotten past the swinging balls yet, but the best hint I can tell you is that there appears to be no safe space between them. Once you see and opening in the swings and start, just keep running.

There’s several more jumping puzzles past this unfortunately. Again, if you have gotten past this segment, please leave a comment, email me, or tweet at me! I’d love video or even photo evidence of what’s beyond (and your skills/luck!).

Bugs

Infinite Tries At Over 18 Door

We’re having trouble reproducing this! If you have any info on this bug let us know!

The Over 18 door is incredibly unfair, but this bug at least removes the 18 minute wait between attempts! It’s an exploit, sure, and it might be patched at any time, but in the meantime, this is the most sane way to attempt the Over 18 Door. Don’t worry; it’s still very insane. Just less!

If you leave the game open long enough, as I did when I left it open overnight on accident, the game will glitch out and fail to remove your Club Level when you die. This also prevents all the multiplayer features and such from working but does not, as far as we’ve seen, affect the Over 18 Door.

For me the game stuck at Club Level 372. I’m not sure if it always glitches out like this at that level or not. It’s possible it’s just a long amount of time, or a network disconnection instead.

Be warned I don’t know if this always works, but I have at least one person attempting it right now. Leave info in the comments if you find anything new that does/doesn’t work with this bug!

Jumping Bug

Infuriatingly, sometimes when you jump you’ll hop half a centimeter instead of a proper jump. This bug alone makes the Over 18 Door path nearly impossible. Nothing so far has been able to fix it. Hopefully Crows Crows Crows fix it.

Clipping Bugs

Not so much bugs as oversights, various parts of The Club aren’t programmed to have collision, so if you jump into certain spots, you “phase” into the wall. More fun than anything, poke around in places you feel the devs didn’t want you to go, and you might go inside a wall! A fun place for this is the red button at the top of the club.

Video Playthrough

I played the game on my Twitch, here’s the archive!

We see allllmost all the content available here, except for the ultimate part of the Over 18 door. Some day…
