What is Pokécube Mod?
Pokecube mod does add a lot of wild Pokécube to our worlds of Minecraft. These creatures can be domesticated by making use of the famous Pokeballs, which in addition to capturing, will be used to tame the collected Pokémon.
These Pokemon Battle system is similar to the series, so all creatures will have strengths and weaknesses when it comes to combat different types of Pokemon that we find around the world.
When we get to capture a Pokécube it can train and evolve through various parameters that help us to capture more powerful Pokemon and also to act how our colleagues in the battles.
When the mob’s out:
Above the mob, the health bar and the Health Points on the right are displayed.
A second blue bar displays the experience. When the bar is full, the mob levels up.
On the left, the level is displayed. If it’s blue, it’s a boy, if it’s pink, it’s a girl, and if it’s grey it has no gender.
Wild Pokemobs don’t display their experience bars and neither their HP.
Tamed Pokemobs display their HP only to their owner.
A tamed Pokemob defends its owner against agressive mobs. Sometimes, it’s so fast that it attacks even before the enemy could hit you. Be careful, I said “sometimes” !
A Pokemob defends itself if its attacked.
A Pokemob hits one target at the time and can’t hurt the others. So the Pikachu’s thunder and the Voltorb explosion are not a danger as long as you’re not the target.
Pokemobs spawn and despawn in the way animals used to do before Minecraft Beta 1.7.
Their level depends on the distance from the spawn point and they are very agressive. So avoid to go too far too fast without having evolved your pokemons (and your armor).
Ah l’amour !
Pokemobs can fall in love. But only with another Pokemob from the same evolution set and from the opposite gender. Baby (Pichu for example) and no-gendered pokemobs can’t breed.
The female lays an egg and stays around it to hen. But you can pick it up.
You can then put it wherever you want by right click. After a while, it will hatch.
Breeding is something natural that can happen in the wild. It’s not rare to find eggs or to meet weak Pokemobs newly born. You can also put a pair of mobs into a pen to make them breed.
Attention ! A newly born Pokemob is never tamed. So it can attack you.
To begin a fight, there are two ways.
The first one is to launch a filled pokecube against a wild Pokemob. The fight starts between the two mobs.
The second is to get one or severals of your friends out of their pokecube and to attack a wild Pokemob. The agressed Pokemob will defend itself and will be taken as target by all your loyal defenders.
The moves are learnt by level up following the rules of the 4th generation.
Some moves are not implemented yet and then can’t be learnt.
Your Pokemobs out of their pokecubes and not sat are displayed in a little gui on the topleft corner. With left and right arrows, you can select one of your mobs, and then with top and bottom arrows, you can select the move to execute. Type “Enter” or click on it to call it back. All these keybindings are modifiable in the options.
The rules follow the Pokemon rules, including XP earning, IV and EV and base stats for damage calculation.
Types advantages are as important as in Pokémon. So, choose well your fighter.
The XP is earned only by the ultimate hitter before KO. Only fights between Pokemobs will give XP.
Baby Pokemobs can’t fight, they only play! They’re useless but cute, aren’t they ?
Gotta catch’em all!
The goal of the game is, of course, to catch a maximum of them and to complete your achievements.
Nothing’s easier, just throw an empty pokecube onto a wild Pokemob.
Here again, the catch rates follow the rules from Pokemon. So it’s a good point to weaken it before.
In case of fail, the pokecube tilts as a true pokeball would have done. 3 tilts = you weren’t so far.

How to install Pokécube Mod:
Download and install Minecraft Forge
The mod removes all the other mobs from the game. So, it’s kind of incompatible with other mods which add mobs (and that’s a good point).
At the loading of a new world or when you join a server for the first time, a screen will be displayed in order to make you choose your starter.
You’ll also get some empty pokecubes and a healing table.
Control your Pokemob is an easy thing. Launch the pokecube (right clic), the Pokemob appears.
If you launch it against another mob, it will attack it. Else, it stays in the place and doesn’t move.
Per right clic on the mob (if you’re close enough), you can allow it to move or to stop (as a dog in Minecraft). Per left clic, you get it back to its pokecube.
The mod is multilingual, so if your native language is implemented yet you can display the Pokemon names and the moves in the way you know them.
