Have you ever wanted to chase Pokemon around the Minecraft world? Have you ever wanted to take control of mobs and get them to attack other mobs? The Pokecube mod brings the entire Pokemon world into Minecraft. The mod is a faithful recreation of Ash Ketchum’s adventures, replicating everything from the sounds Pokemon make to their unique, blocky character models.
Pokecube was designed by a French modder named Manchou. As of now, 45 Pokemon mobs have been added into the game, all of which are from the original 150 Pokemon. That list includes popular Pokemon like Charizard, Blastoise, Pikachu, and Raichu, among many others. For a full list of the Pokemon in Pokecube, click here to visit the mod’s official thread.
In Pokecube, fighting works just like you would expect. After releasing your Pokemon into the world, they will fight for you and defend you when attacked. You can capture other mobs by throwing one of four varieties of Pokeballs at them (Pokecube, Greatcube, Ultracube, and Mastercube). After capturing a Pokemon, the Pokeball will even tilt to the side – just like in the original games.
While fighting enemy Pokemon, life bars will appear above their character models. This life bar shows the HP of the mob, which helps you judge when to throw the Pokeball.
Just like in the original game, Pokemon can evolve. Simply craft the right items and then give them to your Pokemon to watch them grow up and evolve.
As your Pokemon evolve, they learn new moves. The mod creator has even created animations for many of the most popular Pokemon moves, including tackle, quick-attack, peck, self-destruct, hydro pump, and many others. In addition to designing these animations, Manchou has even added authentic Pokemon sounds (from the official Pokemon sound database) into the game.
For all of these reasons, it doesn’t take much walking around in the Pokecube world to realize how close it is to the real Pokemon games. Whether you’re running across the world trying to capture that rare Pokemon or healing your own Pokemon at a special heal table block called the ‘Pokecenter’, this mod has it all. The blocky, 3D world of Minecraft works particularly well for re-creating the 2D top-down adventures that many of us remember from the original Pokemon games.
If you have fond memories of Pokemon, then Pokecube will help bring those memories into the Minecraft world. The creator of the mod is clearly a big Pokemon fan, and he has spent hours of time re-creating the perfect Pokemon experience.
