Due to a few bugs (inevitably) cropping up; here is Pixelmon 1.9.6!
Fix to Exp not being retained on retrieving and sending out
Fix to 2 battle crash bugs
Fixed trainer rarity (someone had set the values too high).
Added a trainer rarity modifier in the config. This allows players to change the rarity of trainers relative to pokemon.
Downloads are universal, one version works on both client and server (this holds true for both forge and Pixelmon)
