Install The Pixelmon Mod

Step 1

Installing a modpack using the Technic Launcher is easy. If you don't already have the launcher downloaded, visit our download page to get the latest version.

Step 2

Type in the modpack name (The Pixelmon Mod) or paste the following url into the search box.

Step 3

Finally, click Install at the bottom right of the launcher after you select The Pixelmon Mod from the list on the left. The launcher will handle everything else!

I've installed Pixelmon, jumped through all the hoops of making sure I've installed Java 8 and updated my windows to 64-bit, but it still says that I need to set the actual ATlauncher to java 8. I've looked through the settings but I can't figure it out. Could someone please walk me through the process step by step?

Do you have any other Java installs on your system? If you open a command prompt window and type "java -version", what does it say? We can have a further look in our Discord with that information.

I do, but I'm not sure how to delete them. I brought it up and it says this: "java version "1.8.0_241" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_241-b07) Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 25.241-b07, mixed mode, sharing)"

Going by that the active installation is a 32 bit version of Java 8, which AT will complain about. If this is Windows, go to Add/Remove Programs and uninstall all the copies of JRE there. After that, get Java here: (make sure you get Windows Offline (64-bit), the other two are 32 bit!)

Perfect! It's all working now, thankyou so much! Quick question, is it possible to stack the Optine mod ontop of this one, and if so, how?
Posted by SwingAndAMiss 4 years ago
Awesome, no problem. As for your other question, on Technic you would go to "Modpack Options" > "Open" > "mods" and drop the 1.12.2 Optifine .jar into there. Keep in mind that Technic overwrites custom mods when the pack updates! On AT, I believe you can open the same folder through the Instances tab (Open Folder?), though I do not have that running currently.
Posted by XpanD 4 years ago
Forgot to mention: Optifine may break font rendering when playing on Pixelmon 7.2.2. We're working on a fix, but it may be good to hold off until that's out.

I don't think that's possible without a custom mod or the like. The people in our Discord may know more, here.

We'll need a bit more information than that to be able to help. I would recommend joining our Discord from the link to the right, that's generally the best place for us to look into issues at.

I keep having this bug where if I'm in a battle sometimes it keeps repositioning my mouse to the center of the screen every like 2 seconds, so if i want to do anything, i have to do it super fast. Any way to get around that?

Do you have any other mods installed? I've seen this issue mentioned in our Discord before, though I can't remember what exactly caused it. May be worth asking in there, though!

Clicked on play for pixelmon it’s comes up with the minecraft box at the bottom Can hear the music but can’t see any screen. I can close the window but nothing else. If we try full screen you do see a left hand bit of the screen which is blurred and too big. How do I fix this just want to play

Are you on Windows? Does hitting the Windows key together with the left/right arrow do anything? Make sure the MC window is selected. If it doesn't, the people in our Discord may be able to help further, link is to the right.

Yesterday I created a server with friends of the pixelmon 7.2.0 version, it happens when it evolves to the pokemon, the non-evolution only shows a message in which it says that it has evolved to the same pokemon, is there any solution to this problem? Thanks in advance
MaxlendMC 4 years ago
What server software are you running? If on a Bukkit/Spigot hybrid like Mohist this is a known issue, and is likely due to an issue on the end of those platforms. SpongeForge setups should work, though.

Hello i have a question, how can i let Pixelmon spawn in modded bioms, im playung with aether legacy and want some pokemon to spawn, is there an easy explanation possible?
LuigiKiller007 4 years ago
If you enable the Better Spawner config in Pixelmon's "pixelmon.hocon" config file, you'll get a new configuration file under "config/pixelmon". Most spawns will use the categories from there, so adding any new biomes there should work. If you want finer control you can also enable the spawning JSONs, although these may be a pain to edit. I would recommend doing this on a (local) server, as Technic tends to wipe most custom things when the pack updates. If you need further support here, our Discord would be the best place.

we created a server yesterday to play pixelmon reforged, we played for hours, it was a lot of fun. we wanted to play today too, but when we try to start it, it says: "$annotatedConnectException: connection refuse: no further information". it also said something about a outdated client. can someone help, we really want to play again.
Ari0806 4 years ago
Check to make sure that the server has started (and isn't getting stuck somewhere), and that you have the right IP and port. That message is MC's default "we couldn't connect to a server at the provided IP/port" error message -- it's not seeing a server. If you need further help, we may be able to look deeper into things in our Discord.

I want to change something(evolution condition, rideable, stat), so i edited the stat folder's json file (assets/pixelmon/stat). for example, if i want to ride the Naganadel, so I edit the Naganadel's stat file(json), and I changed isrideable from false to true. and i edit the onix's stat file(json) . I changed the evolution condition from trade to leveling. and I rebuild the jar file(mod file) and i place the mod file(i edited), and i start the minecraft but it doesn't run. just "mojang" appear on this screen and a few seconds later, minecraft turn off Please how can I play in the modified pixelon mod without minecraft turning off?
Pyeong_Star 4 years ago
Please do not edit the mod file directly. If you open Modpack Options > Open > "config" > "pixelmon.hocon", you should be able to find the "useExternalJSONFilesStats" setting in there. Enable that, save, restart the game and then go up one folder from "config" and open the new "pixelmon" folder. You should be able to make your changes there.

How to open MySQL storage in version 7.2.0?
wdxfandwy 4 years ago
The database was removed a good few versions ago, and replaced with an external JSON file system. You can find the toggles for those files in the "pixelmon.hocon" config file, located under Modpack Options > Open. Restart the game (or your server, if you edit the file on there) after enabling the types you need, and they should pop up in a new "pixelmon" folder in the game/server root.

Playing with someone on LAN but everytime I reopen it to LAN and they join they have to choose a starter all over again. Is there a way to restore their progress?

LAN setups are known to be a bit wonky, but using a local server should work. You can check this guide for the steps, there:

May be worth dropping by the Discord and posting your crash report, there. The people in #general-support may be able to help further.

I saw another report of this a few days back, though I'm not entirely sure if that was resolved. It may be worth joining our Discord for that one, and asking there -- that's where the other report was at too.

why does the "server download" download a file that doesent even run a srever?
04joe 4 years ago
The server download contains a smaller version of the Pixelmon .jar for use on servers, but you'll still need Forge set up (and configured to taste, not ready-made) to actually run it. Check out this link for a how-to:
