Pokeballers

Hey guys,

So we've had a very long bit of silence about Region 3... I know. Let me assure you however that this server has not been forgotten. The major thing that has been holding us back with getting this server back up was 1. Getting a survival world on sponge that was going to be stable enough 2. There is no multiverse plugin for sponge that works the same way we had it before to allow for a hybrid server 3. Since we couldn't use the old map since it was hybrid, the need to have a new one made.

Now, I've got some good news for everyone that has been waiting and waiting. As most people probably know, a lot of youtubers have been doing a Pixelmon Island SMP series where they are recording in a survival world (You can find Lachlans first episode here along with a list of other youtubers that'll be on it). This work has pushed us forward and allowed us to test features to see how stable it would be on a multiplayer server. With that, we are that much closer to getting our own Survival server back up and running again.

What this will mean is, first off, it won't be a hybrid server anymore, it'll only be survival as we still don't have a multiverse type of plugin that we can rely on confidently enough to work. Second, we will also be using the exact same map for our survival server that you've seen all 20+ youtubers recording on and using.

So in short... SURVIVAL SERVER IS COMING BACK!! We've still got some setup that needs to be done, and we'll do everything we can to be sure to bring in the item recovery bank that was made on the old R3 server so people can get to their items as well. Once things have been sorted out and we get a game planned finalized you'll hear more about it and we'll be able to provide everyone with a rough date on when this should be coming out.

What's up ballers?
That's right, a few of our servers are having their very own summer event! Read the following for more info!
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Kanto

You all have been waiting for this for a long time...

The Battle Tower is Back!
Not only is the Battle Tower returning, but we are opening something that only a few people got to see a little over a year ago...
[​IMG]
Kurra City is opening to the Public!
Now, with these two additions to Kanto, there also comes a new event as part of the Grand Re-Opening of the Battle Tower. The first three people to defeat the Battle Tower will get to choose from a pool of Legendary Birds. Awesome, right? But only the first three people will get the chance at a one of these legendaries, so you have to hurry! Once first place has chosen their bird, second place will get a choice from the remaining birds, and third place will get the last bird. Kurra City is Kanto's own original town, one of the lost two cities of Kanto. The town was hit with earthquakes and is almost in ruin, but brings new areas along with it. Kurra includes an EV Training Mansion, a new parkour, and Kanto's 9th gym. Do you have what it takes to defeat the Battle Tower and the new Dragon Gym?

Hope you all enjoy what Kanto has in store for you! - Dropsy & MX
UPDATE: The top 3 places for the Battle Tower have finally been claimed,
but everyone enjoy challenging the tower for a great prize!

Hey guys,

Since we've update to 1.8, and with the release of Johto, the amount of attention that the server has gotten is huge, we've still got a lot to work on and more to come out, but we wanted to take a moment and say thank you to everyone for your continued support of the server.

What better way to do that then a 45% Flash Weekend Sale on everything shiny related. That's to include all Shiny Charges, Shiny Lucky Dips, and Shiny Choices. FOR ALL SERVERS.

Thank you again to everyone for all your love and support to our servers, and I'll see you on there!

Hey guys

That's right, the ability to wonder trade is back and on all servers. That's right, ALL SERVER. It's even on Kanto and Johto!

What is wonder trade? Wonder trade is a system where you pick one of your pokemon and trade it to the server for a completely random pokemon back. You could get something good like a new Shiny Pixelmon or even a legendary!

How does it work? Well first you must have a Pixelmon you wish to trade in your party, then simply use the /wt command

[​IMG]
So for example, I would do /wt 4

This would trade away the Pixelmon that is in my 4th slot. After doing that you will see a prompt on your screen that will ask you to confirm the trade

[​IMG]
Just do /wt 4 confirm

And your trade will be complete.

In other news, the housing section of Region 2 in now open! If you've been waiting to get your house/apartment on Region 2, then be sure to contact a admin on that server so they can help you in setting you up with it.

For Region 1, it will still remain down as we look into what has caused a massive chunk of the map to disappear. Once we've found what has caused this and are sure it will not happen again, we'll fix the map and get it back up for everyone again.

We all hope you enjoy the new Wonder Trade and get some good Pixelmon out of it!

~Blade
Update: Server is back up

With the recent lagging/crashing issues of Johto, we've decided to keep Johto down for the time being as we work to resolve these. We'll put out more information when we have it, but for now, we ask that you stay patient with us during this process.

We hope to get Johto back up and running as soon as possible!

Hey guys,

Our newest server, Johto, is now open and in BETA!

-=JOHTO IS NOW OPEN TO PUBLIC=-

What does it mean that it's in BETA? Well, it means that it's not fully open to the public yet as we still want to do a few bug checks and make sure that everything is good to go on it first. For that, we're looking to you guys to help us out with that. To join the BETA, simply go to our store, navigate to the Johto section, and purchase a Rank Pack from it. This will give you access to join our Johto server and partake in the beta.

What do I get out of joining the BETA? For starters, you get a shiny starter! That's right, when you go to get your starter pokemon it won't be a normal starter but a shiny starter! You'll also get a head start on everyone else on the server so it won't be as crowded for you. You'll also be able to help us out with figuring out any issues we've not found and fixing them so that when we do open it fully to the rest of the server, it'll be the best experience they can get.

How long will the BETA last for? We'll be looking to have the server up in beta for about a week, giving us enough time to test as much as we can and allow enough time for any and all fixes to be done as well. This could increase or decrease depending on issues or lack of.

For the opening of Johto, we're also doing a 30% sale on the store, so be sure to take full advantage of these saving to get yourself access to the BETA as well.

I've also got one more piece of information to share with you all. To start, we're going to be having two very big youtubers recording a series with each other on the Johto server. Both Lachlan and Mitch will be recording a full series with each other as rivals! Be sure to check out their videos and keep a eye out for them on the servers.

You can find Lachlan's episode here.
