Level 40 : Master Pokemon
This is my take on the Hoenn Region in Minecraft. I'm making the whole thing myself and am blogging the entire project at:

On this blog you can see the project in much greater depth. Much more screenshots and much more text is there for you to read.

Advantages of 2:1 Scale

What 2:1 scale means is that the Hoenn Region in this Minecraft Project is twice the size of the Hoenn Region in Pokemon on Gameboy. A 1x1 tile on the Gameboy is 2x2 blocks in Minecraft. The advantage of this is:
- More space to walk around
- More reliastic feel towards the original
- Buildings can have proper interiors while retaining the correct exterior proportions
- Much more detail per walking tile.
- Open feeling

Accurately Re-constructed Towns, Cities and Routes

All Towns, Cities and Routes will be included. Every Town, City and Route is re-constructed as accurately as possible. Very little error has been made. All hidden areas, buildings, caves and landmarks will be included and have been re-created with top notch quality. 

All Buildings Have Interiors

All buildings will have interiors including all 8 Gyms, Contest Hall's, Pokemon Centre's and Pokemon Marts. Plus all houses and landmarks. 
The issue with the Pokemon games is that the interiors can be twice the size or more of the exterior which is physically impossible. All interiors are at a 1:1 scale so that all interior elements such as furniture and televisions can fit inside the building properly.

Comprehensive Build Log with Screenshots

Every segment is featured in my blog dedicated to this project:
There you will find everything you want to know about how the Project started, Where it's up to and what's next. There are over 1700 screenshots scatterd around the blog so all angles are covered.

Where can I get this map?

Through the download link on this page. Instructions for installation are contained within the .zip file. 

You will need Minecraft 1.8 or later to fully enjoy this project. 

I'm using no texture packs as my intention is to combine the charm of vanilla Minecraft with locations of Hoenn. You can use your own preferred texturepack by all means. 

What can I find?

Hey! Nice build I especially loved the Sinnoh map! Anyways I don't know if you do these builds anymore considering its been a few years since the upload of the final maps but i was wondering if you could do Unova or Alola? It'd be amazing! Nice builds by the way!

Any new updates? I know it's been a while so you may not even play anymore, but it never hurts to ask.

No planned updates at the moment. But may give it a refresh in the next few months.

The map is based off Ruby verision but maybe I'll build those places next time I update the map.

Hey, have you considered making the interiors of buildings and caves out of render distance of the main map then using command blocks to teleport to them and back? It'd allow you to do interiors in 2:1 scale, which'd allow the entire map to be insanely detailed :D

  • March 21, 2015, 3:01 am
I have considered it but haven't implemented it. Why? I did't know you could do this when i started the project and to 'retrofit' all the interiors now would consume too much of my time to be worth it. Sorry.

Wonderful work my only suggestion would be to do meteor falls in granite or andesite.

Hmm. Maybe. I'll try it before final release and see if that will work better.
if there is can you please send a link? :)
is there*
there a recomended texture pack, or mod?
  • wireforks
  • Level 40
  • Master Pokemon
  • February 24, 2015, 11:28 am
No. The idea was to create a world that works for everyone in vanilla Minecraft. There are no 'recommended' texture packs or mods but there's nothing stoping you from using your own.
the builds lack quite a bit of detail but im assuming your going to improve? :)
  • wireforks
  • Level 40

  • February 16, 2015, 1:35 am
Yes. If you're referring to the massive gaps of water between land routes. That's all going to be filled in when I'm finished building the rest of the cities.

Thanks. 2:1 scale has been very useful for this project indeed.
Wooooow, almost done! Can't wait to see the finished one! You're so awesome!

Thanks. This one will be completed. I've thought about cancelling it a few times but seeing how far it's come i'm not sure i could. ;-)

are you doing this alone? i dont think ive ever seen a solo person succesfully complete a map by themselves (mostly)
  • wireforks
  • Level 40

  • January 15, 2015, 12:14 am
Yes I'm doing this alone. That's why it's taken about 7 months so far. I would let other's help but I don't have a full time server and even if I did I'd always be worried about the quality of work. But when I do finish this map it could well be a first. ;-)

you just said everything i was thinking too. im very reluctant to let people build with me because i'm scared the overall quality will fall. :)

I am that same guy that commented on both your Google Plus and your blog (and now, here!) to make sure you won't miss me (I'm not stalking, I swear).

So, same message as the others: I love your work. I'm doing something similar. Please contact.
PM me for my skype account, or you could also check in your google plus cause I've already put it there.

I look forward to exchanging knowledge with you :3
OMGOSH IT'S ALMOST FINISHED! I can't wait to test it! <3

Ok, let's see one of your builds. I bet you couldn't recreate the whole Hoenn region in 7 months by yourself in a 2:1 size, could you? You'd probably do a 1:10
  • wireforks
  • Level 40
  • Master Pokemon
  • December 13, 2014, 11:42 pm
It's Hoenn. The gaps in between routes and cities will be filled in once all construction of routes and cities is complete.

Maybe if I have time after this project I was thinking of making the Sinnoh Region of the Johto and Kanto regions from Generation IV. I might upload a demo once I've published the next update log which will be sometime this week.
Cool man, I really like pokemon you have really thought about pepole that like pokemon :)
and if you can make some of the new pokemon maps like the Kalos I will try support you how much I can

Hopefully It'll be finished within two months time. It's mostly just water routes that remain and they don't take very long to build.
