Unofficial Pokemon Mincecraft Mod Shut Down At Pokemon Company’s Request

Pixelmon, the Pokemon meets Minecraft mod, has come to an end. Its creator MrMasochism announced on the Pixelmon forums today that the mod has been taken down at the request of The Pokemon Company.

“With much sadness, but keeping all our fond memories, we must announce that Pixelmon is ending its development,” MrMasochism’s forum post reads. “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.”

Pixelmon began introducing everyone’s favorite pocket monsters into the world of Minecraft in 2012. Users could craft pokeballs, train their Pokemon, battle other users, and breed Pokemon. In the final news updates on the forum earlier this month, the mod team was finishing their Generation Four addition, as well as adding in Generations Five and Six.

At this time, the download links on the Pixelmon forum have not been deleted.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
