Pixelmon Johto - Pokemon's Johto & Kanto recreated

117,399 Downloads Last Updated: Jan 23, 2021 Game Version: 1.12.2

The aim of this modded map follows that of the main series games. Go through Johto, collecting all 8 badges, encounter and defeat Team Rocket, battle your rival, Silver, explore the world for items and events, catch Pokemon, and defeat the Elite Four. From there, you can access Kanto, and defeat the original 8 gym leaders. Finally, the ultimate trainer, Red, awaits to battle again atop Mt. Silver.


This map uses and requires the Pixelmon Reforged mod. 


If you prefer, this map also has a Technic pack you can find by going to this link, or by searching for "Pixelmon Johto - Jond" in the modpacks section, and will configure the map automatically.




This map includes hundreds of trainers to battle, and hundreds of NPCs you can talk with! You can have trainers levels be based on the games, or boss levels if you prefer! 


This map also includes tens of thousands of commands through blocks and functions, making for some pretty awesome features you won't find anywhere else. The map is both Singleplayer and Multiplayer compatible, so you can play solo or use the map in a server to play with your friends! Server plugins may break the map, so use a forge-only server for Multiplayer!


On your journey to defeat all 16 gyms and become the strongest trainer, you can listen to route-specific music based off the original games. Fight Team Rocket and your rival, Silver. View where you are live on a Town Map. Catch different Pokemon based on the route, time of day, and even the weekday. See how many battles you can win in a row at the Battle Tower. Log your Championships with statues in the Hall of Fame. Explore the mythical events of Celebi and Arceus. Find and use Mega Stones. Go on a Bug Catching Contest. Pick your perfect Safari Zone biomes for Pokemon from different generations. Re-battle more powerful Gym Leaders. Hatch custom Pokemon eggs. Use custom-redstoned Hidden Moves, and much, much, more! I guess you'll just have to see it all for yourself.

Resource Pack

This map uses a bunch of custom textures and music to enhance the experience. If you are playing singleplayer, add the "Pixelmon Johto 3.2 Resource Pack.zip" file from the download to your resourcepacks folder and enable in-game. If you are hosting or joining a server with this map, the resource pack can be found in the downloadable file, or download the resource pack below.

Version 3.2 Resource Pack





Included in the map download is a readme.txt file for both singleplayer maps and multiplayer servers. I also created a video tutorial you can watch here:




This map has undergone years of work spanning across over half a decade. See how it has evolved!

Common known issues and what might help:

Version 3.1: Unable to load into world in Singleplayer (Timed out when joining, kicks to server list)
If you enabled the resource pack "Pixelmon Johto 3.1 Full Resource Pack.zip", go into your "Johto" save folder and delete the "resources.zip" file. All its content and more is included in the full pack.



No villagers in the Battle Tower or specific shops (3.1, in Poke Marts, HM Merchants, etc)
Ensure that you are using the custom "config/pixelmon.hocon" file provided with the map. Sometimes it might bug even if you are. By default, Pixelmon overwrites vanilla villagers.

To fix, first close your client or server, and back up your Johto world folder. Copy the "config" and "pixelmon" folders from the download. Paste the folders into your .minecraft folder, or root server folder, and replace existing files. Then copy the "region" folder located inside the "Johto" folder, and paste it into your current Johto save file. If only the region folder is overwritten, NPCs will be reset and respawned, as will loot, but player progress will be kept. If you customized settings in the lobby, you will need to set those again.
