Creating a Pixelmon server on your PC allows you to play the Pixelmon mod for Minecraft with friends or on your own locally. Here are the general steps to set up a Pixelmon server on your PC:

Note: Ensure you have Minecraft Java Edition installed on your PC before proceeding.

  1. Download and Install Minecraft Forge:
    • Go to the Minecraft Forge website (https:files.minecraftforge.net).
    • Download the recommended version of Minecraft Forge for the version of Minecraft you want to use with Pixelmon.
    • Run the Forge installer and select the “Install Server” option. Choose a location to install the server files.
  2. Download Pixelmon Mod:
    • Visit the Pixelmon Reforged website (https:reforged.gg) or another trusted source to download the Pixelmon mod for the same Minecraft version as the Forge you installed.
  3. Create a Server Folder:
    • Create a new folder on your PC where you want to run your Pixelmon server. Name it something memorable, like “Pixelmon Server.”
  4. Move Files:
    • Move the Pixelmon mod (.jar file) you downloaded and the Forge server files (from step 1) into the server folder.
  5. Run the Server:
    • Open a text editor like Notepad and create a new text file.
    • In the text file, paste the following command and save the file with a “.bat” extension (e.g., “run.bat”):

Copy code

java -Xms1G -Xmx2G -jar forge-xxx-universal.jar nogui

Replace “forge-xxx-universal.jar” with the exact name of your Forge server .jar file.

  1. Install Minecraft on Your PC:
    • Ensure you have a copy of Minecraft Java Edition installed on your PC.
  2. Join Your Server:
    • Double-click the “run.bat” file you created to start the Pixelmon server.
    • Once the server is running, launch Minecraft Java Edition.
    • Click “Multiplayer,” then “Direct Connect.”
    • In the server address field, type “localhost” (without quotes) and click “Join Server.” This connects you to your locally hosted Pixelmon server.
  3. Configure Pixelmon:
    • In the Pixelmon server, configure the mod settings, such as spawn rates, item drops, and other gameplay options to your liking.
  4. Invite Friends:
    • If you want to play with friends, provide them with your local IP address (you can find this by searching “What is my IP” on Google) and have them join your server.

Remember that this setup is for a local server, meaning only you and those on your local network can join unless you configure port forwarding and firewall settings to make your server accessible online.

Also, ensure that you have the necessary permissions to use and distribute the Pixelmon mod according to its terms of use and any applicable Minecraft rules.
