Pixelmon is one of the most popular mods for Minecraft today because it mixes the world of Pokemon with the world of Minecraft, and the two just so happen to go really well together. But until now, there was no version of Pixelmon for the Pocket Edition of the game. Now the Pixelmon PE mod finally brings similar fun and function to Pocket Edition, so players using tablets and phones to play the game can catch Pokemon, get into Pokemon battles with other players and try to become a Pokemon master. The mod is currently in beta, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t work.
Sure, some of the features are bound to make the game crash up, but this is again a beta and not an alpha – many parts of the mod work just fine. However, there are some definite compatibility issues between the Pixelmon PE mod and other, popular mods for Pocket Edition. One of these is Toolbox, which many players swear by as one of the best inventory altering mods for Pocket Edition. The two mods absolutely will not work together, so you’ll need to get something like the SimpleCommands mod instead if you want to “hack” Pokemon and items into your inventory.
When you first begin a new world after installing Pixelmon PE mod, you’ll be hit with a prompt asking you which Pokemon you want to choose as your starter. Following this, you’ll get a few Pokeballs and other items to get you started, and then you’re pretty much on your own. This is all just basic gear though. Specialty Pokeballs require acorns to craft, and since there are no Pokemon centers, you’ll need to craft your own Pokemon Center block to heal your carried Pokemon when you tap it. Overall, this beta is coming around very well and should be finished and fully functional soon.
