The best Pokemon mod for MineCraft is blitzcrank's Pokemon Kanto Adventure Map. There are 19 hours of game time, because it is a complete game based on the original Pokemon. You start out at home and then travel to Professor Oak's house. The Pokemon you get to start with are Pikachu, Squirtle and Charizard. The mod includes the Kanto region, classic music, and familiar Pokemon.
You may want to replay the classic Pokemon beforehand, just in case. It would be a shame to miss out on all of the little details he included with the mod. The vanilla version of Pokemon is the best, which is another good reason to replay it.
You travel through the Kanto region battling Pokemon trainers like Brock, Misty and Blaine. The mod ends with a battle against the Four Elite and a trip to the Sevii Islands. He made sure to include all seven islands. There are a lot of secrets and hints in the map to help you on your journey, so you don’t get lost or confused. It’s a fun map, and it is just like the classic Pokemon.
Where To Download
It was posted to PlanetMineCraft and other websites where people could download it for free. The mod has over 30,000 downloads and hundreds of fans. The comments section is pretty active, which means that blitzcrank is still involved in working on his maps. The project is popular, so he keeps making new content.
He was working on it since the summer of 2012, but finished the mod recently. The project is done, but there are still a few things blitzcrank is going to add in. They are only small details. Although, everything right down to the grass is where it should be. He did a great job.
The mod is a complete 3D model of the Kanto region filled with Pokemon. Houses are filled with modded art, so it looks more realistic. You need to download the texture pack that goes with the mod. There is a reminder in the game.
Since that summer, blitzcrank has made a map mod for the Hoenn and Johto regions of the Pokemon world. The newer mods include stuff from Pokemon Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire, Gold and Silver. Be the best Pokemon trainer there ever was, but watch out for the creepers, because it is still MineCraft after all.
The first thing that blitzcrank posted on PlanetMineCraft was a alien suit. He also has a Animal Crossing mod. Keep an eye out for new mods from blitzcrank this year. The Pokemon Adventure mod is definitely fun, and there are more mods on the way.
