Hello and welcome to the noob survival guide for PixelmonCraft. In this guide I will be answering the common questions asked by new players as well as covering basic advice e.g Breeding.
Section one is for New trainers while section 2 is for new donators.
Why was I warned/kicked or muted?
The main reason for these events is that you have broken one of the sever rules and depending on the rule you have broken and how severe you were, staff will punish you accordingly. The rules that the server runs by can be found here http://www.pixelmoncraft.com/forum/topic/3896. In most case you will be kicked an if you persist with your behavior, you will get muted for an amount of time.
Help I'm stuck in a block or home ?
If this is the case you can use /trapped to return spawn.
What is Pc and what are Pixelpoints(pp)?
Pc is the server wide currency that we use to buy and trade various items and pokemon while Pixelpoints are points which can alter pokemon. More info on Pixelpoints can be found here http://www.pixelmoncraft.com/forum/topic/4281 .
Where and how do i get Pc?
Well the main way would be voting, see the following section. However there are other ways to gain pc, mainly from interacting with other players. For example you can set up a shop and buy a warp from the server shop and sell items and pokemon to the people of the server. Also people tend to offer pc for odd jobs like filling in land, just ask around for these types of things. You can also sell some pokemon loot drops at the pokemart to make quick money.
How do I enter the jackpot?
To enter the jackpot you simply vote for the server on the different vote links provided. There is a chance you will win the jackpot however it is not guaranteed that you will win the jackpot al the time. http://www.pixelmoncraft.com/vote
How do I get to teamspeak?
You can get Teamspeak from here https://www.teamspeak.com/downloads and the copy and paste the Server address which is ts.pixelmoncraft.com.
Where do I apply for Gymleader or Pokehelper?
Where is my starter kit and/why do I not have anything?
As soon as you spawn on the kanto server (most common server) I highly recommend that you do /kit to get the starter kit that all new players are entitled to. You can also do /shop then go to Freebies to get other free items like the one free shiny for new players.
How do I get a home/claim my land?
There are 2 commands you can use to find unclaimed land which you can them claim and use. These commands are /rtp and /findland. These commands will as the names suggests teleport you to some random place on the server, there is a chance that you will be teleported to an area that is claimed, if this happens just use the commands again. When you have found a suitable location for you to use and redeem the starter kit you can start the process of building a house and claiming it. I assume as you are playing modded minecraft you can at least build a home so on to claiming land. To begin the claiming process use the golden shovel from the starter kit and right click one corner of your desired claim then right click the opposite corner than bam you have a claim to work with. When you first place a chest on the server a 9x9 claim will be made around the chest in order to protect it from theft. Just a side note all claims have to be at least 10x10 to be eligible to protect your land. MAJOR SIDE NOTE: Do not be stupid do /sethome in your new claim so you can get there easily.
How do I make pokeballs or where do I get them from.
Well as previously stated you get a starter kit from the server when you first start playing and this contains pokeballs for you to use. To craft more you will need to follow the processes seen here http://pixelmonmod.com/wiki/index.php?title=Pokeball , http://pixelmonmod.com/wiki/index.php?title=Great_Ball and http://pixelmonmod.com/wiki/index.php?title=Ultra_Ball. Basic equipment list : A hammer. apricorns ( colors you need) , bases, a pixelmon anvil and a furnace.
How do I make my pokemon relearn old moves and How do move tutors work?
The move relearner and move tutors both require emeralds to do each of their services. The amount depends on what move you are trying to teach your pokemon and Emeralds can be bought near the location of the Move relearners in /pokemart. The move relearner as the name suggests teaches pokemon a move that it has forgotten, this is important if you delete a move by mistake or want to change your set for a gym. The move tutors are a step up form this and they teach your pokemon moves that they would not be able to get otherwise. This can give you the edge in any battle if it is used correctly. The move you buy depends on what pokemon you try t use it on and the total move pool is here:
How do I transfer Pokemon Between Servers?
To transfer Pokemon between servers do /store (slot) on the server with the pokemon then do /claim on the server where you want to have the Pokemon. Side Note: There are known glitches with this system which can cause Pokemon to disappear or duplicate, Do not say you were not warned.
How do I go about Breeding Pokemon?
Ok breeding is a relatively essential part of competitive battling and a key way to best the gyms(more on that next section). But first breeding is useful to teach pokemon good moves and to gain access to those key ivs which can swing battles. The first thing you will need is two pokemon of differing genders that are in the same egg group ( http://pixelmonmod.com/wiki/index.php?title=Egg_Group ) or a normal poke and Ditto. After collecting the pokemon you want you will need to acquire a ranch block, you can buy these at /loveshack on Kanto or Craft them following these steps http://pixelmonmod.com/wiki/index.php?title=Ranch_Block. After you have gotten a ranch block place the two pokemon into the ranch block and wait till they show red hearts. When they show red hearts the egg has been produced and you have the baby pokemon. For competitive pokemon breeding and creation, see Yutolio's guide here http://www.pixelmoncraft.com/forum/topic/4614 . Side note: Do not destroy ranches while pokemon are still in them as this will cause them to be locked in your pc, Staff can unlock them but it would be best to avoid this if possible.
How do I get to the gyms?/ Why are the gym leaders so strong?(Kanto exclusive)
To go to or check if a gym you are after is open do /gyms and you see what gymleaders are currently online and which ones are offline. this is the best way to keep tabs on when you can challange a gym.To challange a gym leader you musrt type /challangegym. On to the reason why the gym leaders are a little tougher than most servers. This is because if you could just steamroll the gyms there would be little point in them even being there in the first place, it would also not be very fun for the gymleaders and beating a tough gym tends to give players a better sense of achievement which is part of the server experience. Saying all this the gyms are not impossible to beat and with the right team and a good trainer it would not take to long to beat them all. Side note read the gym rules , http://www.pixelmoncraft.com/gym-rules ,saves all of us time and stops you getting disqualified before you even start.
The Pokemon auction
You will need a forum account to use this function. To get an account click the login button on the type right corner then click sign up. The feature is very useful for player who need good iv Pokemon but do not have time to breed them. You buy pokemon from the auction then do /c all (Serverside) to get them on the server. Once claimed they will enter your pc.
