Pixelmon Friends is an universal sidemod that can be optional on the client side. It just show you a GUI instead of using commands and use a notification system to show you friends progress.

Minecraft launcher

  1. Download Pixelmon Friends for your version of Minecraft and Pixelmon here.
  2. Put the downloaded file in the mods folder.


Pixelmon Friends lets players choose to receive notifications about certain players' activities, including when a player catches a Pokémon or evolves a Pokémon. Pixelmon Friends also keeps track of players' win/loss ratios for player-vs-player battles.

To choose which players they want to receive notifications from, they can add friends to a "friend list". A graphical interface to manage the "friend list" can be opened with the M key (by default, you may change it since it's a default "quests key"). Alternatively, the friend list can be managed with commands. When a player join or leave the server, it will send a message to his "friend list".

Friend list interface

From this interface, players may be added to the friend list by entering their names (the player must currently be in the server for this to work). To delete a player from the friend list and no longer receive notifications about him/her, the player's name can be right-clicked and a delete button will appear. It is possible to disable all notifications temporarily while retaining the friend list's contents by browsing to the Configurations tab and toggling notifications. This tab also displays the number of players being followed and the number of players following the user. You can also use the /friend mute and the /friend unmute to toggle it.


Note: Command syntax is displayed in the standard Minecraft command format. An explanation of this format can be found here.
