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.
Halloween starter Pokémon evolutions
- 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.
Eternal Flower Floette
If you use Sweet Scent in Flower Forest there is a low chance for Spiky-eared Pichu to spawn. This Pichu will be the exact same thing as a regular Pichu, but one of its ears will have spiky-shape. This Pichu can't evolve in any way.
