No Minecraft server list would be complete without this wonderful server. A perfect blend of Pokémon and Minecraft, players can do almost anything they can in the actual Pokémon game.

Players looking for something different from the average Minecraft world can join one of two servers:

  • IP for a Pokémon safari experience
  • IP for the classic Pixelmoncraft

Each of the two servers will give players a novel experience. Players looking for more of a classic experience should join the regular server. The safari server is different in that it's more mini-game oriented.

Players can switch between the two, depending on their current mood. But players cannot go wrong when combining these two amazing games.
