This Minecraft map packs a full new Pokémon game

Gotta hold all of them?

Yeah, you see a lot of these kids around these days, telling everyone they're Pokémon Masters. Poképosers, I call 'em. A true Pokémon Master dedicates their entire life to defeating and capturing every last Pokémon. Not just in one game, nor the core games, nor even all the official games. A true Pokémon Master masters every last fan game and mod too, from Pokémon Doom to, now, Pokémon Cobalt and Amethyst [official site]. Launched over the weekend, it recreates a full singleplayer Pokémon game inside vanilla Minecraft, complete with capturing, battling, an annoying rival - the lot.

You know how a typical Pokémon game goes? You leave your hometown on some mission or other, you collect pocket monsters, you make pocket monsters fight each other, you foil some big plot... that stuff. Pokémon Cobalt and Amethyst does that. It's got cutscenes, dialogue, and all, set in a new region with new Pokémon. It's a Pokémon game within Minecraft. Do you see now? Look:

Head on over to creator Phoenix SC's site to download it. You'll want vanilla Minecraft 1.8.8 to play - none of that Minecraft 1.9.

And once you've beaten this? You can play the Pixelmon mod for Minecraft, which is going for a similar Pokéexperience and has hundreds of Pokémon to catch, and then Pokécube, and then...

'Pokémon Master' my arse.
