Installing Pixelmon

  • Download the Pixelmon launcher here.
  • Once the download is completed, run the downloaded executable file to install the Pixelmon launcher.
  • Accept the terms and conditions and specify where the Pixelmon launcher should be installed.
  • When the installation finishes, the Pixelmon launcher will start automatically. A shortcut will be placed on the desktop for future use.
  • Enter in your Minecraft account details to log into your account.
  • To complete this step, you need to own a purchased copy of the computer version of Minecraft. You cannot use the Pixelmon launcher if you use a cracked version of Minecraft, or if you only own Minecraft Pocket Edition (including Windows 10 Edition) or console editions (Xbox, PlayStation, Wii U).
  • Click the "Create New Profile" button in the green box. This will cause the profile editor interface to appear.
  • Choose the desired Pixelmon and Forge versions
  • Name the new profile if desired.
  • If you want to use any additional mods alongside Pixelmon, click the "Add Official Sidemods" button for Pixelmon sidemods and/or the "Browse for Mods" button for other mods on your system.
  • Save your profile once you are finished creating it.
  • Click the download icon in the top-right area of the launcher to install Minecraft, Pixelmon, and Forge into the Pixelmon launcher. This may take a few minutes.
  • Once the downloading is finished, the download icon will be replaced with a play icon. Pressing this button will launch Minecraft.

Settings
Profile settings


The profile settings window
These settings can be found in the profile editor screen.

  1. Use custom window size: This allows a window size (width and height) to be defined exactly; it is an alternative to dragging the lower-right corner to resize the window.
  2. Additional arguments to use when initializing Minecraft.
  3. Keep output dialog open after Minecraft exits: This specifies whether the Minecraft console will persist after Minecraft closes.
  4. Reinstall all libraries next install: This will force all files to be re-downloaded the next time the profile is used.

Minecraft settings

The Minecraft settings window
These settings can be found by selecting the gear button in the top-right corner of the main menu.

  • Select Java Install: This specifies which version of Java to use when running Minecraft.
  • Change Storage Location: Allows the location of Pixelmon launcher data storage files to be changed.
  • Java arguments: The JVM arguments to use when running Minecraft.
  • Auto-updater: This feature will check if there is a Pixelmon launcher update periodically (can be configured or disabled) and automatically update the Pixelmon launcher if there is one.
