Install Guide

Twitch Setup Manual Setup

Our server is running Pixelmon Reforged 8.4.2 for Minecraft 1.12.2

Launch via our custom Twitch Modpack

1. Purchase and install Minecraft Java Edition. Launch the game at least once if you have not played it before on this computer.

2. Download and install the Twitch Desktop App and sign in with your Twitch account.

3. Optionally, download Optifine for the correct version of Minecraft you are using.

4. Click the Mods tab and select Minecraft. If necessary, set up a Minecraft install location.
Windows users only: DO NOT install in ‘C:\Program Files’ or ‘C:\Program Files (x86)'.

5. Click Browse Modpacks.

6. Search for PokeMC Pack.

7. Click the Install button for the pack.

8. Return to the My Modpacks tab and click on the PokeMC Pack image (NOT the play button).

9. Click the gear at the top right, and select Open Folder.

10. Open the mods folder.

11. Locate the .jar files that you downloaded for Optifine in step 3. Place them in this mods folder.

12. Return to the Twitch App and click the gear at the top right of the pack's window, then click Profile Options.

13. Uncheck Use System Memory Settings. Set the slider to a minimum of 2048mb, or a maximum of 6144mb, depending on how much RAM you have available on your computer. Click Okay.

14. You should be done! At this point you can click the Play button for the pack in Twitch and launch the game. Our server IP is automatically included in the Multiplayer list.

Manually install with Minecraft Forge

1. Purchase and install Minecraft Java Edition. Launch the game at least once if you have not played it before on this computer.

2. Download the current Pixelmon Reforged mod version and the recommended version of Forge for the correct version of Minecraft you are using. The recommended Forge version is listed under the download button on the Pixelmon Reforged website.
Windows Users: Download the Windows Installer for Forge.
Mac Users: Download the Installer for Forge.

IMPORTANT: When you download the Forge installer, you will be brought to an ad page first. DO NOT click any of the pop ups, and instead wait 5 seconds for the SKIP button to appear in the top right. You may have to disable Adblocker if you have one. Click SKIP and you will download the installer safely.

3. Open the Forge Installer file. Choose Install Client and hit OK.
Mac Users: If you are unable to open the installer by double-clicking, instead, Right Click the file > Open > OK.

4. Open the Minecraft Launcher. Select Installations and click + New... to create a new profile.

5. Name the profile anything you wish, and open the Version drop down menu. Scroll until you find the version of Forge you just installed and select it.

6. Click on More Options and scroll to the JVM Arguments.
Change the -Xmx1G at the beginning to -Xmx2G. Leave the rest of the argument untouched. This step allocates 2GB of RAM to Minecraft. You can allocate more if your computer has more RAM available.

7. Hit Create and return to the Play tab in the launcher.

8. Open up the version menu next to the Play button and select the new profile you just created. Launch the game. You MUST launch the Forge profile at least once if you have not launched Minecraft with Forge before on this computer.

9. Once the game is successfully launched, we need to access the .minecraft folder on your computer.

On the Minecraft home screen, click Options > Resource Packs > Open resource pack folder. This will open up a file window on your computer. Simply go up one level to access the enclosing .minecraft folder (or just ‘minecraft’ folder for Mac users).

10. Open the mods folder.

11. Locate the Pixelmon Reforged .jar file you downloaded in step 2. Place it in this mods folder.

12. Close Minecraft and re-launch it with the Forge profile again. You should now have Pixelmon successfully installed! To confirm, click the Mods button on the Minecraft home screen. Pixelmon should be listed.

13. On the Minecraft home screen, select Multiplayer > Add Server > and input our server IP: This will add the server to your list. You can now connect and play!

14. To update Pixelmon in the future, simply download the new Pixelmon version .jar file and replace the old one in the mods folder. Delete the old Pixelmon .jar when you place the new one in the mods folder. You can also put any other mods you download, such as Optifine, in this folder as long as they are for the correct version of Minecraft and Forge (and allowed on the server).

Launch via Technic Launcher

NOTE: Launching Pixelmon via Technic sometimes causes visual issues for Mac users, depending on your hardware. We cannot guarantee Technic Launcher will work on all devices.

1. Purchase and install Minecraft Java Edition. Launch the game at least once if you have not played it before on this computer.

2. Download and install the Technic Launcher. Open it and log in with your Minecraft account info.

3. Select the Modpacks tab at the top. Search for PokeMC Official in the search box on the left. Click Install in the bottom right.

4. During or after installation, click the Launcher Options gear at the top right of the launcher window. Open Java Settings and change your memory to a minimum of 2GB, or higher if your computer has more RAM available.

NOTE: You MUST have 64-bit Java installed in order to do this step. If you cannot install 64-bit Java, I do not recommend using Technic Launcher.

5. After installation, you can now hit Play in the bottom right to launch the modpack.

6. On the Minecraft home screen, select Multiplayer > Add Server > and input our server IP: This will add the server to your list. You can now connect and play!

Holding a specific key down or using a macro to continuously use the loop is not allowed. Examples of legal egg hatchers can be found at /warp LastRun, /warp RoseRunner, and /warp Abolshop
