It's Been a Gréat Ride
With much sadness, but keeping all our fond memories, we must announce that Pixelmon is ending its development. We have had a great time making this mod and creating such a wonderful community but after a request from the Pokémon company we will be shutting our doors. I'm sorry for the disappointment this will cause but let's remember all the great times we had playing Pixelmon, discussing Pokémon, making awesome things inside this mod and everything else that we've done.
All good things come to an end eventually and now is our time. However there are always more things to do, to be a part of and to enjoy. Keep going out there to find fun projects to be a part of and other great things to invest your time and enthusiasm into.
The Pixelmon Team
The new Pixelmon Server is opened! You can Download ATLauncher and join the Minecraft 1.10.2 with Pixelmon 5.1.2 server on IP: server.pixelmoncraft.com, PokeBank module for Pokemon Transfers has been added.

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).
We have introduced an alternate currency named Pixelmon Points, these points can be used for altereing pixelmon data ingame. Nearly all data can be changed and you can earn PP by voting, events or tournaments. You get 3PP for every vote placed on a vote link.
The following commands have become available on kanto:
||Tells you how many points you have remaining.
|/ability <1-6> <ability>
||Changes the pokemon in the party slot given to the specified ability. (doesn't consume the points if it is not possible to set that ability on that pokemon or if you don't spell the ability correctly or it already has the specified ability....|
