Combining both Pokémon and Minecraft you get one of the best gaming experiences you could ask for, Pixelmon! Pokémon was one of the original trading card games for nineties babies and was a popular television show. Minecraft is one of the most addicting computer games ever created. Due to the nature of Minecraft, it offers tons of customizable options. A group of people decided to bring Pokémon to the experience and include it fully.
On any given Pixelmon server you will be able to start off by selecting from a group of starter Pokémon. When we say group, we mean Generation as Pokémon and many other shows like Power Rangers went on to create multiple versions. The original users will choose from Generation one which features Charmander, Squirtle, and Bulbasaur. If you are newer to Pokémon you might know of the Pokémon in Generation five, Snivy, Tepig, and Oshawott. Starter Pokémon will start from a relatively low level around level five. Note that Trainers used to be able to select Pikachu but the option has since been removed, sadly.
As you play the game you will run into other trainers that you will battle with your Pokémon. To battle another trainer you just have to go your inventory and throw your Poke-ball at another and the battle will commence. You will have multiple attack options as well as the ability to flee. In order to catch them all you will have to craft Poke-balls which isn’t an easy task. You will need multiple iron and other materials and go through a three step process to craft them. Much like Minecraft you will have to find all the raw materials. Pixelmon is a great mod for Minecraft and leaves little room to get bored considering thousands of hours go into the dumbed down version in the Gameboy versions.
