Pixelmon 5.0.4 is now available! This is another tweaking and fixing update, dealing with large and small issues from versions 5.0.3 and 5.0.2.
We've significantly relaxed the speed cap when hatching Eggs, making it possible to hatch them faster when riding a Pokémon or using other speed enhancements (swiftness potions, Running Boots, etc.). We encourage you to explore the world rather the drowning in a circular flowing pool with tears of boredom.
Speaking of drowning, you can now be more reckless when KOing Magikarp in a river to evolve your starter Pokémon, as you can no longer drown when your Pokémon is evolving. A couple of other evolution crashes and related issues have been fixed as well, with the goal of making evolution a celebration instead of a coin flip.
NPC Trainers were sometimes being wishy-washy, and quitting the battle after a single Pokémon went down. We've whipped them back into shape.
It was discovered that Legendary Pokémon didn't like water at all, even though many can fly or swim. We've taken them through some aquaphobia treatment (i.e., blast them with some Hydro Pumps), so you'll see Lugia, Kyogre, [email protected], and lake trio more often now.
The distortion in the teleportation medium has receded, and your attempts to Fly, Teleport, or use elevators should now function correctly once again.
Fossils no longer magically reproduce after being put on display. Cellular reproduction is now limited to Pokémon that do not actually reproduce like real cells anyway.
For a full list of fixes and changes that were made, please see the changelog link in the footer of this post.
As hinted by previous trailers, we have a batch of Pokémon that are almost ready to be added. However, there have been a few delays, and we aren't able to release them just yet. Because of some of the issues we've observed in Pixelmon 5.0.3, we decided that it was best to release an intermediate bug-fix update in the meantime rather than wait until Pokémon are ready to be added. We ask that you be patient for a little longer while the new Pokémon are finalized for release.
