Way back in 2015, a new mod was added to Minecraft, and this server immediately skyrocketed in popularity.
This server is the Pixelmon and if you are not familiar with it yet, Pixelmon incorporates the Pokémon world in Minecraft. This includes the Pokémon, the enjoyable battle, trades, and even Pokémon breeding.
The Minecraft world incorporated the mechanics of battling and matchmaking, which is very similar to the Generation 8 Pokémon games that have grown very well with us gamers. Since Pixelmon is basically the Pokémon world in the Minecraft arena, new features have been incorporated into the server to align with how Minecraft players would do tasks and accomplish missions in-game.
Pixelmon was created to cater to players and servers who can stri ve for their own goals. The amazing fact here is that you can choose what goals you want. You can choose to challenge other players, complete your Pokédex or whichever destination you aim to reach.
In contrast to what you would usually expect in a Pokémon game, Pixelmon does not include random encounters for meeting and battling Pokémon and trainers. Pixelmon spawns Pokémon in the Overworld, where players can engage with it.
