Several Pokémon have unique textures only available to them, in addition to their normal and Shiny textures. These textures are obtained through special methods.
Once applied, special textures cannot be removed except with a Pokémon editor.
- 1 Halloween Pokémon
- 2 The Spectral Jeweller (Haunter)
- 3 Roasted Magikarp/Zombie Gyarados
- 4 XD001 (Shadow Lugia)
- 5 Wobbeeffet
- 6 Sir Doofus III
- 7 Valentine's Pokémon
- 8 Eternal Flower Floette
- 9 Spiky-eared Pichu
- 10 Alien Celebi
- 11 Alternative Kecleon
- 12 Alternative Zoroark
- 13 Sushi Pyukumuku
- 14 Crystal Onix
- 15 Pink Pokémon
- 16 Summer Pokémon
The final evolutions of starter Pokémon and a few other Pokémon like Ditto or Arcanine are able to take on Halloween-themed appearances. In order to obtain one of these special textures, several conditions must first be met.
- The spawn time is night.
- There is a full moon.
- The light level at the Pokémon's position is at least 12.
- There are no blocks over the Pokémon.
If all of these conditions are true, using a jack o'lantern on the Pokémon will convert it into its Halloween special texture.
The Spectral Jeweller (Haunter)
If a player earns the Spectral Jeweller special texture in an event held by the Pixelmon team, the /redeem command can apply a special texture to an owned Haunter to take on the appearance of the Spectral Jeweller. Currently, this special texture is occasionally distributed from giveaways on the official Pixelmon Discord,
A Magikarp turns into a Roasted Magikarp when struck by lightning. It is recommended to summon lightning with an external move, as it's easier than waiting for it to happen randomly. A Zombie Gyarados can be obtained by evolving the Roasted Magikarp.
XD001 (Shadow Lugia)
Sir Doofus III
If a Bidoof is caught with a Luxury Ball it will have a 1/30 chance to become Sir Doofus III, a special model for Bidoof that has a monocle with a tiny Pixelmon Reforged logo. Sir Doofus III can't evolve.
If a Koffing, Weezing, Gardevoir or Spinda are caught during Valentine's day with a Love Ball they will become Loved Koffing, Loved Weezing, Loved Gardevoir or Loved Spinda respectively. When a Loved Koffing evolves, it will become a Loved Weezing.
Eternal Flower Floette
If you use Sweet Scent in Flower Forest there is a low chance for Eternal Floette to spawn. This Floette has higher stats than a regular Floette and it will learn Light of Ruin when caught. This Floette can't evolve in any way.
The Spiky-eared Pichu will always:
- Be level 30.
- Be a female gender.
- Have the Static ability.
- Know the moves Volt Tackle, Helping Hand, Swagger and Pain Split.
- Be holding the Zap Plate held item.
It is based off the purple Kecleon found in the Mystery Dungeon games.
It is based off The Joker.
Crystal Onix is a special texture for Onix that spawns naturally on Mountainous and Mesas during Dawn and Morning at a rarity of 1.0 on land and a rarity of 0.05 in the underground. Its aspect is based off the Crystal Onix seen only once in the anime.
Pink Pokémon are rare variations of already existing Pokémon, but their coloration is pink. They are all pretty hard to find. The current Pokémon that can be pink are the following: Beedrill, Butterfree, Venonat, Venomoth, Misdreavus, Mismagius, Nidoking and Nidoqueen.
They all spawn in the same biome their regular counterparts spawn in, except of Misdreavus and Mismagius, which spawn in the same biomes except of Evil. This concept is based off an episode from the series where Pokémon that eat a special kind of berry become pink.
Summer Pokémon are rare variations of already existing Pokémon, but their aspect is more summer-ish (for example, wearing sun glasses, a swimsuit, a surfboard...). The current Pokémon that can spawn as summer Pokémon are Lopunny and Alolan Raichu. Summer Lopunny spawns in Cold Beach during the Morning at a rarity of 1.0 in clear weather. Summer Alolan Raichu spawns in Stone Beach during Dawn and Dusk in clear weather with a rarity of 1.0.
