Most of us have fond memories of Pokemon. Whether you played the fantastic games on your Gameboy Color or you traded with your friends to get that holographic Charizard, it’s easy to be nostalgic about Pokemon.

The Pokecube mod seeks to bring those good memories to Minecraft by adding fully functioning Pokemon into the game. With Pokecube 1.6, users can equip themselves with Pokeballs and run around the world catching some of the most popular Pokemon from the original game. Characters even told to an authentic, blocky version of Pokemon trainer Ash Ketchun.

Pokecube is authentic to the Pokemon experience. You can evolve Pokemon by combining the right ingredients and then feeding it to them. All of the Pokemon models are beautifully designed and do an admirable job of bringing a previously 2D experience into a 3D world.

One of the coolest features of Pokecube is the ability to ride around on your Pokemon. One sample video showed a player riding around on his Butterfree Pokemon. Rather than looking blocky, and strange, the flying animation is surprisingly smooth.

You can also carry around other Pokemon that don’t fly. Pikachu can easily hop on Ash Ketchum’s back and ride around with you wherever you go, for example.

The process of capturing Pokemon will be familiar to anybody who has played the games. The player equips a Pokeball before throwing it at the Pokemon. Weakened Pokemon are easier to capture than stronger Pokemon, and it helps to do some damage to the Pokemon before throwing a Pokeball.

As of now, there are approximately 50 different Pokemon in the mod, although more might be added in the future. All of the Pokemon are from the original 150 and include fan favorites like Bulbasaur, Charmander, Squirtle, and all of their evolved forms. You’ll also encounter Caterpie, Pidgey, Rattata, Spearow, Geodude, and even water-based Pokemon like Shellder and Cloyster.

The Pokecube mod even goes so far as to introduce authentic Pokemon sounds into the Minecraft world. The mod creator, Manchou, grabbed Pokemon sounds from the official Pokepedia website, which helps players fully immerse themselves into the experience.

During a fight, trained Pokemon (ones that you have already captured) will defend you. You can also control your Pokemon using basic keyboard controls. Enemy Pokemon mobs have a life bar above their model which will turn yellow, orange, and red as they take more damage. It actually feels like you’re a real Pokemon trainer.

If you ever played Pokemon when you were younger (or if you still play Pokemon now), then Pokecube 1.6 is one mod you have to check out.
