How can you not like Pokemon? The lovable trainable creatures have had a special place in gamers’ hearts for many years. There are plenty of mods that bring the magic of Pokemon to the Minecraft world, but so far, there haven’t been many quality Pokemon maps.
The Pokemon Johto adventure map seeks to change that. The creator of this map – blitzcrank – actually created maps for Kanto and Hoenn (the other two continents in Pokemon) before setting off to create Johto.
The Johto version included in this map is the Heartgold and Soulsilver version of the continent. But the best part about this map is that it includes Kanto as well as Mt Silver – which means you only have to download one map to experience the magic of Pokemon.
This map also includes a unique texture pack that brings the Pokemon world to glorious 3D life. If you’ve ever wanted to experience what it’s like to walk around virtualized Pokemon towns like Cianwood City and New Bark Town, this is the map for you.
Players can also see the entire map when they stand on tall towers or gaze off into the distance. Instead of separating the map into different zones, players can freely travel between each town as they please.
The thing I most appreciate about the Pokemon Johto Map is the fact that it retains the blocky, pixelly goodness of the original Pokemon games off which it is based. That’s what makes Minecraft Pokemon mods so enjoyable to play – they’re true to the source material.
