Play Pokemon Cobalt and Amethyst In Minecraft 1.8.8 Without Modding! (VIDEO)
A new Pokemon theme has been added to the ever popular title, Minecraft, and this time, it allows gamers to fully experience Pokemon Cobalt and Amethyst right in their own block-based world. Created by PureCharlie of Reddit, the map utilizes command blocks within the vanilla copy of Minecraft 1.8.8 and PureCharlie states, “Command Blocks! Similar to an old mod you may know as Single Player Commands, WorldEdit and the like, only in Vanilla and activated by redstone. They are a mapmaker feature!” Check out the Full Release video below, provided by the developers of this new map:
The interesting thing about this particular map is that gamers don’t have to do any modding at all in order to utilize it to its full potential. The only thing gamers need is a copy of Minecraft 1.8.8 and the map download. That’s it! The map is 100% ready to go right away, so you don’t have to endure any downtime if you want to jump right into training, battling and capturing your favorite Pokemon.
After being in development for about a year, this particular Pokemon app waxes nostalgia to the title that was released back in 1996. There are a few new Pokemon added to the map (including Giratina and Arceus), which helpfully keeps Minecrafters pretty in the loop with the latest additions to the Pokemon roster. Unfortunately, the map is only available in single play mode, so you won’t be able to battle it out with your friends. Still, it’s a nice addition, and one you can definitely spend hours exploring. You can download the map here.
If this map sounds like something you would want to take advantage of, make sure you do so right away. For other Pokemon mods, and the time and effort it takes to create such an expansive world inside a video game, check out this article on Ark here.
