Pixelmon Mod for Minecraft 1.17/1.16.5/1.16.3/1.15.2/1.14.4

If you enjoy Minecraft and Pokemon, then you’re definitely going to love Pixelmon, a Minecraft mod which adds nearly 300 of the cute critters to Minecraft. While many mods which add content to the game are known to interfere with other mods functioning correctly, Pixelmon makes no change to any base files, which means it works well with the vast majority of other mods and can be used right alongside some of the most popular Minecraft add-ons available today.




Adding 294 different Pokemon to Minecraft was no small task, and Pixelmon is no small mod because of all the new content included. This isn’t just a cosmetic mod that gives facelifts to models already existing in the game – Pixelmon actually includes an attack system ripped right from Pokemon, with over 500 individual attack moves and even status ailments, to make it play and feel much like the handheld Pokemon games. There’s even a functioning pokedex for keeping track of what monsters the player has caught!


In fact, aside from the blocky textures, some players may not even realize they’re playing Minecraft, not Pokemon. There are fossil machines for reviving petrified critters that can be found throughout the world, and Pixelmon even adds a trading system to Minecraft, so players can swap their caught monsters whenever the mood strikes. Few mods add as much content to Minecraft as Pixelmon does.



Pixelmon mod is the perfect mod for Minecraft if players really want to change their gameplay experience. This is no resource pack offering a facelift and standard Minecraft besides – this is like a whole new game.

If you do not know, this mod can also be installed in Minecraft Pocket Edition. Click here!

  4. Hey i love this mod, but i think its hard too find bioms here, is there some kind off map or a normal spawn location off desert bioms ?

  5. When I try to open the link for pixelmon mod zip for 1.7.10, it says secruirty error… It doesn’t let me get to the website to download the mod. Please help!

  6. I am having trouble with my Mod when i open up the launcher (I did everything as instructed to as well) it will take about 10 minutes and then all of a sudden it will say launcher is not responding then crash, i still have all the crash reports but this is a mod problem.

  8. yup it see it has pokemon e and x x and y and pokemon platinium but when are they gonna add black and white pokemon espellialy kinklang and zekrome reshiram

  9. Hi everyone! I want to download Pixelmon, but here’s 2 problems: This is my first mod I’m going to download ever, and also I don’t know where the link below is.

    • U need to type: Windows button and R button at the same time.
      Then Type: %appdata% on the RUN
      then drag the folder in: (.minecraft/mods)

  10. I really want to try this mod but it keep lagging and lagging i cant even walk and its a good mod but laggy.

  11. It is possibly lagging because of the JVM arguments.

    If you edit the profile you are using in the minecraft launcher and check the box near the bottom of the screen for JVM arguments.

    Look at the following setting


    The 1G denotes the maximum amount of memory that it will run in. In this case 1GB, this is not enough for the latest Pixelmon so needs to change. The maximum you can set this is governed by how much RAM you have on your computer so you can’t set it to anything higher than what you have and shouldn’t be set to 100% of what you have as there will always be other programs running on your computer that will require memory to run.

    I have 16GB so changed it so that it can theoretically use half simply by changing the 1 to an 8


    This fixed all the lagging.

    It would be good for someone from the developers to say what the minimum requirement is to prevent this being an issue for people on older machines with less memory.

  12. Hello there,

    If you guys have any problems regarding installing or playing pixelmon go to pixelmoncraft.com and we can help you out on getting the right version installed.

  13. Ok press download then go to windows and type this in the little rectangle – %appdata%… then go to roaming then press .minecraft … pull up your mods picture thing… in .minecraft pull up Mods… then put your mod in the mod area download forge put it in your screen press it then press ok then reboot your minecraft if you have it up then boom! have fun 🙂 (Not a virus) (I promise :D)!

  14. i love playing minecraft and pokemon when they made a game that it called pixelmon and its mix with minecraft and pokemon

  15. I have way too much lag when I play. It’s as if the game is trying to keep track of all the pokemon in the world. That would break me.

  16. I have got pixelmon to work, and it is pretty cool, my kids love it. I do want to know about a problem I have found. In task manager there is about 8 tasks of Iexplore running and using memory. Now I am not using any web browsers at all and it is not from the pokedex links. After quitting out of the game they are still running in task manager. Is this normal for Pixelmon or other minecraft mads?

  17. Love it. Works perfectly. But had to download both 1.8 AND 1.7.10 because most servers need 1.7.10. Amazing Love it

  18. I NEED THE 1.7.10 one why is it no more??? i need it real bad anyone know where other links can i download this with 1.7.10 forge????

  19. I can’t get the mod to work at all. I have downloaded it and stuff. And the only things that happen when I start a world is “Loading world” and “Building terrain”. Then the screen goes brown and stays that way. Is there something wrong with it? And yes, I have the right version! I’ve done everything you need to do to download it (at least all I found). Why is it not working?

  20. On windows 10 the .jar files just open up as Internet Explorer links?
    I need an INSTALLER, not a f#cking internet explorer link.

  21. Tem Br se tiver curta e comente Man esse mod é muito foda e muito top caralho não desinstalo ele de jeito nenhum man !!! (y)

  22. Installed the mod successfully, but when Forge tries to initialize it, the game crashes because it “runs out of memory.” I have eight gigabytes of RAM.

    • You have to open the minecraft launcher, at the bottom left click Edit Profile, and at the bottom check JVM arguments and enter -Xmx2G

      I had the same problem and apparently Minecraft isn’t allowed to access any more than 1G of data unless you allow it to by hand.

    • Fix to my last comment: Entering -Xmx2G will give it 2G, which is just enough to download and play the mod but there will be a LOT of lag. The more gigs you give it, the less lag there is, but you can’t give it anything over the amount of storage your computer has. I would recommend using at least 4G or 5G in which case you would enter -Xmx4G or -Xmx5G


  23. Quote: “Some players may not even realize they’re playing Minecraft, not Pokemon”

    Maybe that’s because players can’t Minecraft in Pixelmon?

    Can’t even do something as simple as cook charcoal. The game crashes.

  24. when i try to play pixelmon 1.10(single player) one of the following happens:
    1.I choose a starter and then it puts my onto the latest server i’ve been on and then my game crashes
    2.my game crashes while im choosing a starter
    i have a very good computer and i don’t know why this is happening is it happening to anyone else?

  25. Heyo! How to download this is simple! Just click the link then click the green button that says: ‘Download version’ << Whatever version you want, wait for it to download, drag it into the mods folder, and ya got Pixelmon! Hope I helped!


  26. I dont know what version to download because when i click it it brings me to a add website i wate and nothing happens plz help.

  27. How do I start it on1.10.2 I downloaded it but can’t figure out how to start it cause I go in Minecraft and have no idea what to do sense it doesn’t tell me if it was installed into the game.

    • u go onto mojang.com and go to the questions site and u ask them how to do it… i already know how to but ask on there and u will figure out how

  28. Is there a possibility for this mod to be available for 1.11.2? I really want to try it, but have lots of mods for 1.11.2.
