Pixelmon 5.0.3 is now available! This update addresses some major issues from 5.0.2.
For those of you who have triumphed over a boss Pokémon or a Gym Leader and received a big fat zero next to your hard-earned loot, you will be happy to know that this has been addressed. We've also (literally) patched some of the holes and missing body parts of some Pokémon, and given Butterfree its wings back. Mega Hula Hoops have been stored away for now, and Poké Mart spawning has returned.
Mega Evolved Boss Pokémon spawning has changed to be somewhat similar to Legendary Pokémon spawning, so the hordes of Mega Charizard flying everywhere are a thing of the past (unless you change the config). These Boss Pokémon have also learned to harness their inner powers to achieve more than just Tackle, so beware.
Have you ever tried to send your Pokémon out while you're riding, and the Poké Ball just bonks your Charizard/Staraptor/Lapras on the head? We've dealt with this concussion-causing practice, and you should find it easier to engage wild Pokémon while on a mount now.
Our voice actors have been working on some new Pokémon cries, and we've finally been able to add in their newest works. You'll notice over 50 different Pokémon now have something (many things, actually) new to say.
Oh yeah, a new pink blob and some remodeled pink blobs. Yay.
Remember, if you are using the Pixelmon launcher and already have Pixelmon 5.0.2 installed, you can download a patch file to update to Pixelmon 5.0.3 instead of downloading the entire Pixelmon jar file. This patch file is much smaller in size and will download much more quickly. If you've remained on 5.0.1, you can update straight to 5.0.3 as well with these patches!
Server owners: If you've been using our external database saving feature (or you've wanted to), you will find that Pokémon won't all become burned after being loaded. Also, if you're still on 5.0.1 and are looking to update, make sure to read the server owner note in the Pixelmon 5.0.2 newspost before you update.
