PokéQuest has been designed to provide the players with the most authentic Pokémon experience that we can provide you while playing Minecraft. In order to achieve this goal we have modded the server in several ways. The mods that we are running include:
Minecraft Custom NPCs
Pixelmon is a mod for Minecraft that greatly helps us to provide an experience similar to that of the Pokémon GameBoy games. This mod adds over one hundred Pokémon to the game with textures that look just like the originals, hundreds of moves and attacks for them to use, working evolutions at levels matching when they evolve in the game and more.
Pixelmon includes a battle system identical to the one in the games with all of the same options and results. Your Minecraft inventory acts as the bag which can be accessed during the battle to use potions, burn heals, awakens, PokeBalls and so on.
You are allowed to carry six Pokémon with you at any given moment and the rest are sent to your PC where you can view their stats, moves, experience and level. The PC also allows you to store Pokémon and switch them out at any PC so that you can train dozens if you chose. PCs are located in all PokéCenters, which also have a healing stations that will be discussed later.
In order to level you must either fight wild Pokémon, fight trainer NPCs that wonder around or fight other players. Defeating wild Pokémon will often give you a drop of some sort which can be sold to an NPC vendor for coins which will be discussed later in more depth. As your Pokémon levels it will learn new moves, gain higher stats and possibly evolve.
Everything is as close to the GameBoy games as possible. Some sample pictures are in the spoilers below.
~NPCs and Quests~
Using the Minecraft NPCs mod we have managed to create a working economy with actual coins rather than text like with iconomy on bukkit, an in depth questing system with multiple ways to start quests, multiple endings on some, quests triggered by different dialog options, and so on. The NPCs will help you on your journey in return for help from you. Some pictures from some of the shop keepers are in the spoiler tag below.
~The Elite Four~
The Elite Four will be somewhat similar to the games, but not exactly. The first four players to defeat all eight gyms and collect their badges will be the first Elite Four. All players after them that collect the badges will be able to fight the Elite Four and attempt to take their place in a ladder type competition. ~How to install~ That part is easy for you all you have to do is download this (Below) and insert the files inside it in your .minecraft folder. (BE SURE TO BACKUP YOUR .minecraft FOLDER)
