Level 38 : Artisan Pokemon
Published on 12/24/2015 - 12/24/15 6:17 pm , last updated: 07/04/17 1:42:33 am
Thankyou all for your loyalty but I simply do not have the time or commitment anymore to work on this project. I may resume in the future but that is un-likely.

This is my take on the Johto and Kanto Regions 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.

This project combines two regions in one for an ultra large map. The map will be based on the appearance of the regions from Generation IV. The exception is the Sevii Islands which will be based on the islands seen in the Gameboy game.

2:1 Scale

What 2:1 scale means is that the Regions in this Minecraft Project are twice the size of the Regions in Pokemon games on the DS. A 1x1 tile on the DS is 2x2 blocks in Minecraft. The advantage of this is:
- More space to walk around.
- More realistic 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 has been reconstructed as accurately as possible. I'm aiming for as little error as possible. 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 16 Gyms, Contest Hall's, Pokemon Centres 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. Most 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 many screenshots scattered around the blog so all angles are covered.

Where can I get this map?

I'll eventually release the world for all to enjoy when it's complete.

But for now, you can try out a preview. This is an unfinished version with no scenery beyond the routes and cities. All locations listed below that are coloured green are present. (Note: As construction progresses the preview may or may not be updated according to the table below.)

You will need Minecraft 1.12 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 Johto and Kanto. You can use your own preferred texture pack by all means.

Hey (long time no see, I am that guy who was a really big fan of the Hoenn one) do you know when this project will be finished (i love your work) since It's been a long time since I've seen such an awesome map

I don't know when it will be, or if it ever will be finished. Reason being I just don't have the time or commitment that I used to. I would like to finish it eventually. How long that will be, I'm not sure. However in saying that I have made progress since the last update. I've built Viridian Forest and Route 2. Once I get around to finishing Pewter City i'll post another update.
gonna use this on my server later on :) will do changes though ip: playpokeislands.tk:25650

It remains unfinished and progress is very slow. Johto is complete but Kanto only has a handful of places. I just have very little time to work on it now.

Yay! keep up the great work I love your maps
Can you add charicific Valley too
  • wireforks
  • Level 38
  • Artisan Pokemon
  • May 28, 2017, 5:21 pm
There's a chance once the regions are complete. This map is based off the games so Charicific Valley was not on the cards.
Oh okay
how goes the progress?

question. will silph co have multiple floors? i mean game-wise you never saw past the lobby in g/s/c/hg/ss. but id imagine silph co has the same layout as gen 1/3.
wouldnt make sense to leave such detail out because you dont see it in-game.
  • wireforks
  • Level 38
  • Artisan Pokemon
  • December 20, 2016, 1:05 pm
It's not decided at this stage as Saffron city is still a while away. However, as you said it would be a waste of space to leave the extra floors out. Who knows, I might deck it out like a normal office or do something else.

It wasn't in the plans (call me a noob, but I had no idea this place existed) but now that I know I'll see if I can integrate it into the project.

Do not worry, it was a place that could only be accessed if you had to Arceus, the maps you've created are just incredible and I'd like to help giving you ideas about what could be better on that site or how to do it

at first i assumed youd be doing  g2/4 kanto. then i saw the sevii islands. could this mean that THIS kanto will be a hybrid between 1/3 and 2/4? or maybe theres 2 kantos in the map.
  • wireforks
  • Level 38
  • Artisan Pokemon
  • February 21, 2016, 12:54 am
It's Johto and Kanto based on Gen 4 only, plus the Sevii islands based on Gen 3 because that's the only time they have been in a Pokemon game.
Wow, Just Amazing. Love Your Work And You Earned A Diamond From Me! :)
