So it’s that time again!
Due to the (not so recent) recent update, many more Pokemon, Abilities and Moves became available for the community to use. Because of this, it became time to update the Gym Teams again. However, this time, things are a little different.
The overall system will be the same, however, the normal gyms (20-90) are no longer as difficult as they can be. Each gym team is now centered around a theme, meaning that they are not necessarily as “impossible” as they were. These are designed to teach players that are newer to the competitive scene about different strategies, not to challenge the players that already know everything. These themes are as follows:
Rock Gym: Sturdy + Entry Hazards
Water Gym: Rain
Electric Gym: Volt-Turning/Momentum
Grass Gym: Status
Poison Gym: Stall
Psychic Gym: Trick Room
Fire Gym: Sun
Ground Gym: Phazing
This week we will work on the launch of a new pixelmon server, both 1.8.9 and 1.10 BETA. It is time to move forward and thus the new server shall rise. The current pixelmon servers will not be touched and stay as is until we can decide to finally make a transfer to the new versions of pixelmon.
Detailed information on how these servers are going to work will come in a later stadium.
- Initial base server has been setup
- Added permissions
- Added essential commands
The servers are updated to Pixelmon 3.5.1 aka the Legacy update, the status bar states 3.5.0 due a bug in the version release, this will be fixed on the next patch.
Some of you are now aware that we have been working on a ~final~ 1.7.10 version of Pixelmon, version 3.5, or 'Legacy'. This version will include a lot of fixes for previous issues, mostly serverside, that have been reported over the past year. It will also include only a few Pokemon, items and features that have been created for 1.8. (Not everything, note that 1.8 is still the flagship for us).
Pixelmoncraft has switched to new and improved servers with more power and a better general network connection to the rest of the world. There is an American/Canadian pipeline and an European pipeline now to join the servers, it is best to join the pipeline closest to your region.
