Minecraft mod Pixelmon shut down by The Pokémon Company

Pixelmon, a popular mod for Minecraft that recreates the Pokémon series in-game, is officially going offline. The development team behind the mod announced on its forum that it would cease work on the long-running download, at the request of The Pokémon Company. “With much sadness, but keeping all our fond memories, we must announce that Pixelmon is ending its development,” wrote MrMasochism, an administrator on the Pixelmon forum and member of the production team. “We have had a great time making this mod and creating such a wonderful community but after a request from the Pokémon company we will be shutting our doors.” Work began on Pixelmon back in 2013. Since its first version release, the Minecraft mod found a fanbase in players who wanted a little bit more Pokémon-style gameplay in the sandbox smash hit.
