3. The Pixelmon Modpack

Pixelmon adds many aspects of the Pokémon into Minecraft, including the Pokémon themselves, battling, trading, and breeding. Pixelmon also includes an assortment of new items, including prominent items like Poké Balls and TMs, new resources like bauxite ore and Apricorns, and new decorative blocks like chairs and clocks.


For most of these features, Pixelmon attempts to match the mechanics of the Pokémon games as closely as possible, including battle mechanics that match the mechanics in the Generation 8 Pokémon games. However, some aspects of Pixelmon are original and deviate from the games, such as a breeding mechanic where Pokémon require a suitable environment around them in order to breed.

Pixelmon does not use the "random encounter" method (e.g., tall grass, caves) for encountering Pokémon. Instead, they spawn naturally in Overworld, and a player can engage them in battle. By default, normal Minecraft mobs are disabled and do not spawn when Pixelmon is installed, although they can be enabled by editing Pixelmon's config file.


Poké Balls can be purchased in Poké Marts (which spawn in towns) in exchange for PokéDollars, just as they are in the games. However, Poké Balls can also be crafted after the player acquires Apricorns and iron. Pixelmon is designed so that players and servers can choose and create their own goals, whether this means completing the Pokédex, winning in player-vs.-player battles, or another goal entirely. There is no fixed progression of Gyms in Pixelmon, but servers may choose to implement this feature by using either NPC Trainers or players as Gym Leaders, and Badges are present in Pixelmon if servers wish to use them as marks of achievement.

4. Medieval MC

Medieval Minecraft will bring your Minecraft experience back to the early ages of gaming with its medieval settings, including 6 new dimensions alongside new bosses. However, the most unique part is probably the new updated thirst and stamina system. This allows players to have a much more realistic experience.

5. Vault Hunters

Vault Hunters is a massive RPG focused modpack, allowing the player to develop their own talents and abilities. It features over 2 billion different items in combination that can be looted inside the mysterious and dangerous Vaults. These items are armors and weapons and idols (totems), that boost the player's different attributes and stats. The end goal of the pack is to collect 25 unique artifacts, and forge them together to access the final vault. Vault Hunters can be played in Multiplayer and have several coop elements, including vault running.

The magical power of a vault is stored inside its key, the Crystal. The more of these you craft, the more materials they will cost you and while you may not need base infrastructure to begin with, you will definitely benefit from it as you progress. All crystals crafted are unique, they can be modified with catalysts, imbued with seals, or used plain to open your vaults. They will punish you, and reward you, and most importantly they will progress you!

Vault Hunters is, in its core, an RPG in Minecraft. You will be able to progress in hundreds of different ways and there is a playstyle suited for everyone, whether it’s to be defensive, aggressive or balanced. Through the use of skills, abilities and research you are able to get stronger and level up as you get more knowledge and vault experience.


Risky, scary, deadly and absolutely wonderful, filled with loot and richities is the Vault. However, every Vault is different. Depending on the crystal you used to open it, no vault will ever be the same. Experience incredible rewarding moments, and equally challenging moments, the ups and the downs. The vault will reward those who take risks, but with risks comes dangers…
