Pixelmon is a brand new Minecraft mod. Minecraft is a popular free roam computer game. Combined both of these games make for an entertaining mod known as Pixelmon. In Pixelmon you play as a trainer who catches and battles Pokémon against other trainers. On the Pixelmon Server you have to craft your own Poke-balls in order to catch new Pokémon.
When you get to the point that you want to battle your Pokémon you simply throw your Poke-ball from your inventory at another trainer. Your Pokémon will be summoned and you will have the classic options presented in front of you. You will have the option to flee, run, or use an item from your inventory. If you choose to fight you will be given a few options for attacks to use. Choosing the proper attack is essential to victory. If you are fighting a water type Pokémon vs a fire type you will want to use a water based attack because it will be super effective. If you fight a wild Pokémon then you will have to weaken it before you use your Poke-ball in your inventory. Crafting Poke-balls was also just re-released into the game and they are not easy to come by. You must craft them yourself on a crafting table like in Minecraft.
The creators of Pixelmon are also open to community involvement as they take community help. Pixelmon recently asked for help in the creation of skins for the trainers. Trainers before only had the same clothes and this way they are set apart by unique clothes and gear. Right now there are over 637 Pokémon total when starting out there were only a few. Pixelmon has greatly expanded as the mod has developed. There will likely more additions as time goes on but right now there are no more things to be added. Pokémon was a favorite among older people as the card game is no longer played and Gameboys aren’t all the rage.
