Many of today’s video gamers have fond memories of playing Pokemon when they were younger. Fortunately, in an effort to recapture that magic, a number of different modders have tried bringing Pokemon into the Minecraft world.
One of the most successful Pokemon mods for Minecraft is the Pixelmon Mod for Minecraft 1.4.7. This mod adds nearly 70 different types of Pokemon as well as a fully-functional combat system. Using this mod, players can capture Pokemon, store them in their PCs, heal them at tables, and perform all of the other tasks that a real Pokemon trainer would do.
As far as Pokemon mods go, Pixelmon appears to be the most extensive and frequently-updated mod available today. With 68 different types of Pokemon available and over 500 unique attacks, Pixelmon brings an authentic Pokemon experience to the Minecraft world. Whether you want to go around the world capturing every Pokemon you see, or you want to level up your favorite Pokemon to its evolved state, you can do that with Pixelmon.
Players can easily craft any items they need thanks to the deep recipe system in Pixelmon. Pokeballs and healing tables can be easily crafted, for example, and there are even a number of unique items in the game that are only dropped by specific Pokemon. Miltanks will drop milk after being attacked, for example.
Each Pokemon features unique animations and character models. The capturing system even has its unique type of 3D animation, and a lot of work has gone into making Pixelmon 1.4.7 as detailed as possible.
As players travel around the Pixelmon mod in Minecraft, they’ll encounter other Pokemon that they can capture. These Pokemon will be added to a box on the left-hand side of the screen. This box shows useful information like hit points, level, experience, and more.
After traveling for a while, players will need to restore their Pokemon to full health. Simply drag them to the nearest healing table and you’re ready to start exploring once more. Some Pokemon will evolve naturally, while others require special evolution stones.
Pixelmon took a massive investment of time and effort to create, and the mod is still being updated. Whether you want to recapture the magic of Pokemon from your childhood, or you just want to add a cool new game into the Minecraft world, Pixelmon is one of the deepest and most extensive mods available today.
