Pixelmon Minecraft Mod

Catch The PokemonGO Wave with Pixelmon for Minecraft

Here at, we’ve definitely been caught up in the Pokemon Go game that’s been taking the world by storm. Many of us employees at are in our late 20’s, so Pokemon was something we did when we were young, and with it becoming an AR experience on our smartphones, it’s really got many of us interested in Pokemon again. However, not all of us can leave our posts to go hunting for Pokemon, so we decided to see how we could tame our urge while working here at!

After a bit of Googling, we came across an awesome mod that we believe may tame that urge in Minecraft for us! This mod may not be new to some of you, but to those who are just discovering it, it’s called Pixelmon. This mod adds almost 300 Pokemon with levels and more to your Minecraft world!

The Pixelmon mod, isn’t a simple cosmetic mod for Minecraft either. The team that created it went to great lengths to integrate almost everything about the attack system from the original Pokemon games, along with moves, ailments, and even actions when you’re catching or defeating a Pokemon in Minecraft!! Not to mention the all too familiar Pokedex built right into the mod, to help you keep track of all the Pokemon you’ve caught!

Another really great feature about this mod, and one of the reasons we’re recommending it, is the fact that it doesn’t make any changes to the base files for Minecraft, which makes it easy to add to your existing Minecraft server and work right along with the other popular addons and mods available today.

Take a look at this list of features:

  • 340 pokemon!
  • Fully configurable via pixelmon.cfg file
  • Comprehensive attack system featuring over 500 attacks (including status effects and stats modifiers)
  • Pokemon overlay showing current pokemon and their status
  • Functioning pokedex
  • Multiplayer supported!
  • Full PC storage system!
  • Evolution stones!
  • 3D pokeball and capture animation
  • All Models to scale as specified by the bulbapedia
  • Battleable Trainers
  • Aggression system
  • Friendship System
  • Hammer and anvil crafting system for pokeballs!
  • Apricorn trees
  • More Pokeballs: Heavy Ball, Level Ball, Love Ball, Moon Ball and Friend Ball + More!
  • Fossil Machine for reviving fossils found around the world!
  • Trading! Trade pokemon with your friends! Evolve Pokemon!
  • Find Icy and Mossy stones throughout the world to evolve certain Pokemon!
