Minecraft parkour is one of the innovative ways of playing the game. Without focusing on beating the enemies of trying to find those ever elusive diamonds, parkour servers focus on letting their players run their courses, timing themselves and their rivals, going for the fastest time. There are plenty of different servers which offer quite a different slew of runs for their players, letting them test their mettle. The most popular ones even offer prizes for the fastest times on their courses and are hosting monthly competitions.
Most of the best players obviously don’t want to play on a highly popular server while they’re practicing their runs, since that would obviously give up their strategy for making in through the course. There are also players who are so adept at the game mode, that they simply don’t care if others see how they do it, because they are simply so much better than them that even if they knew how to execute the maneuvers they wont be able to. The whole scene has a lot of pride in themselves, making their records and more importantly keeping them a point of pride.
The easiest courses can be made by most people, but the finesse comes in shaving of corners and making the optimal pathing through the course, while the more advanced courses often include traps and even monsters, making it more difficult for newer players to even finish the map, much less with a competitive time. With the cash and prizes involved there is certainly every incentive to keep your tricks to yourself, however quite a few of the better players help newer players to keep the playing field a bit more level, so more people get into it and bring with them a new a different perspective on the runs. You never know, it just might be you, that breaks that next hardest course by seeing something others don’t.
Pixelmon is one of the premiere Minecraft modpacks. The mod is based on the ever popular Pokemon game series. It basically replaces the random animals wandering the world of Minecraft into Pokemons, letting players catch and battle with them. It also adds gyms to Minecraft generated villages as well as pokemon centers and shops letting players get their pokemon healed. These are my favorite Pixelmon servers.
This server has pretty much remade the classic Ruby/Saphire and Gold/silver storylines into their game modes. Their server feature beautiful handcrafted cities that seem to come straight out of the Pokemon games. Their huge and well maintained game world is obviously one of the main draws, however this server is also perfect for playing with your friends, exploring it and finding it’s secrets.
Developers of this server have focused primarily on adapting Ruby and Saphire pokemon games. While their community might not be as large as some of the other servers on this list, this also makes them perfect if you’re starting out and want to learn about this fun game mode. Their realm also interweaves the survival mode with Pixelmon, letting you get the best of both.
While other servers might be trying to recreate Nintendos previous games in minecraft, this server takes it in a whole new direction. They pretty much created their own regions, letting you experience a new kind of Pokemon and Minecraft blend. They also have a huge number of Pokemon to catch and play with while also seamlessly merging the Pokemon and Minecraft experience. Definetly a unique kind of a server and more than worth checking out.
While other servers might offer Pixelmon as one of their game modes, while still offering others to cater to a wider swath of players, this server went all in on Pixelmon. Fittingly they offer two worlds to choose from, the Red and the Blue one. While their community might not be as large as some of the others, their staff are tirelessly working to make sure you can experience their creation in all its glory. A really fun server that makes it hard to remember that you’re actually playing Minecraft.
These are some of my favorite Pixelmon servers. This game mode has really taken over my life as of lately and I’ve been having tons of fun with it. If you want to find a different server, I can point you over to these Pixelmon servers.
