No. Rant about how NINTENDO needs to take it easy. And dont just spew out nonsense. Make a script and make positives with few negatives.

Perhaps post this on the minecraft reddit, it would get a lot of traffic there.

I might not change anything but we would rather try and save it than just let die; which it won't because people are still playing and recording it.
It's not going to change anything...
Pixel'Mon is dead...
R.I.P, you will be missed......

The Pixelmon mod isn't dead, people are still playing it and recording it.
Well, the orespawn mod is dead and people are still recording and playing it!
Am I allowed to keep my copies of the mod?

Keep them! If you delete them you won't be able to download them again.
Or do I have to delete them?
No, you don't have to delete them.
Really? I loved this mod!

Dang! Pixelmon got killed off!? Well, at least I have my old copies of it...


I have no idea why they'd kill it off if they gave credit to the Pokémon Company in the first place. Heck, they gave proper credit to it in the actual mod itself once you boot up the mod! The only way that it could get properly sued nowadays (since it's a fan-game) if multiple people (AKA, enough to let the Pokémon Company know of it) on the internet say that it's exactly like Pokémon, or if the assets are completely the same. For example, the Pokémon games are known to have a 3d/2d top-down perspective, while Minecraft is known to have a first person perspective. Unless you use the "F5" key, Pixelmon is supposed to be different from Pokémon in which you can actually have a first-person point of view as a trainer, while the Pokémon games don't. Another odd thing is that the 3d models for the Pokémon and trainers are custom, and some of them even have been made by their own model designers. Also, the colored boss game mechanic is also original, so I don't see that being a valid point for a shut down. Besides that and the proper credentials, maybe I can see why it got shut down. Sure, some things are original, but some assets from the main-series Pokémon line are used like the Master Ball and whatnot.

Digressing as my Zircon personality aside, I hope Pixelmon gets saved, because that is one of my favorite mods from Minecraft (first being the Morph Mod), and I would be glad to sign it, but I barely have any money to do it. Gosh, please save the Pixelmon. They're probably starving out there with those Nuclear Pokémon from Pokémon Uranium. RIP Pixelmon... RIP.
I completely agree with you. I don't know why Pixelmon would be such a threat to The Pokemon Company. Pixelmon is what Pokemon fans have always wanted, a first person Pokemon game, where can interact with Pokemon and the surrounding environment 1-to-1.

Yeah, me neither... What you described about Pixelmon kind of reminds me of an attempt that someone tried to pull of with Pokémon, but now it's a dead project. It was supposed to bring live skirmishes to the world of Pokémon instead of using turn-based affairs, but it just died all of the sudden, but thankfully it didn't get shut down/sued because it had original mechanics. Like, this shut down for Pixelmon is still hurting my brain to this day! I still have no idea why they would kill it!

PS: Congrats on getting onto the "Pop Reel" (The one not in the feed, but the one that appears when you boot up PMC)! :D
I know, I've been thinking about it a lot as well. A lot of people have been speculating that it's something to do with the Nintendo Switch games coming out this year but I'm not so sure.

Thanks, I made the video because I've been playing pixelmon ever since it was first released and I care about it very much. Also, as a coder I can only imagine what the developers are going through right now.

i doubt the pokemon company cares about what a few thousand people think, if you really want to change what they done, fund them and threaten to remove the funding if they dont change

No, The Pokemon Company may not care about the Minecraft community but they should care enough about why the Pixelmon mod means so much to us. Pixelmon are already being funded via their website, the funds help pay for the development of the mod.

What do you mean, when you say " fund them and threaten to remove the funding if they dont change"?
