━ Rank Update ━
Admiral.png
The long awaited Rank Update is now live on the server! This update brings a new condensed rank system that offers more commands, items and achievements for ranking up! We have removed a few of the playtime ranks that were a little empty in terms of perks while introducing the ability to prestige (More info on that below). With the implementation of this new system, you now have the option to rank up 63 times. To view these new ranks in game you can type /ranks.

The kits for each rank have also been adjusted and you no longer lose access to past rank kits as you rank up. To view these new kits in game you can type /kits.

━ Prestige ━

We are pleased to announce the release of our prestige system. With this initial release, you will have the option to Prestige 5 times as you progress on the server. In order to prestige you must be at the [General] rank. Once you prestige you will be set back to [Forager] in order to climb the ranks again. Each time you prestige you will gain access to new perks, challenges and rewards! A new thing coming with Prestige is access to a new warp with exciting new challenges to test your skills as a pixelmon player. Although its not currently live, in the coming days Prestige players will have access to /warp prestige to access these new exciting challenges. Keep an eye out in game for players with ➊ ➋ ➌ ➍ ➎ next to their name to be able to tell who has already prestiged. If you would like to know more about prestiging, the rewards it offers or prestige yourself, you can access it all in game with /prestige.

TheNodeMC Pixelmon Modpack is now live! Our custom modpack features all the custom Pokémon textures mentioned above, Discord integration so you can let your friends know what you're up to in-game, custom item textures for special Texture Eggs, Keys, GUI items, and more! Not to mention you can also receive a FREE daily kit and [Gamer] prefix just for playing with it! Also, if you enjoy the modpack, custom textures and server it would be beneficial if you dropped a like on the modpack to help us reach more avid Pixelmon players!

We are also looking for awesome screenshots taken on our server to include as the background of the modpack home screen when you first launch the pack! If you would like to submit a screenshot send it below and we will take it into consideration for the next update.

━ Plushie Shop ━

Introducing the Plushie Shop! The Plushie Shop is a new perk for players who reach Prestige 1, and will provide you access to purchasing a miniature version of any Pokémon you can think of to decorate your home! Once placed, you can pick them up again by holding Sneak and Right Clicking and place them again somewhere else! You can access this new perk in game with /plushies.

The prices of plushies will range based off of how desirable we find each Pokémon is on the server. They could change at anytime! Current plushie prices range from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand, so start saving up early if you know you want a popular Pokémon!

The wonderful training warp built and setup by xIrishTitanx and Watty is now live! This has been a highly requested feature by many, many players on the server and we are so glad to finally provide it for everyone. This ancient cavern lying deep below Nodenia was previously used as a training ground to quickly level up Pokémon! There are 7 tunnels branching out from the main room, each one specializing in training a specific Pokémon's stat!

Legends say there's also a treasure to be found there, if you can crack the code...

Wow, do you y'all know how to grind. Never in a million years did we imagine people would be able to mine 700,000+ cobblestone in one day or battle over 1000+ pokemon in a single day, but you guys proved us wrong. We are glad to see people were able to complete so many quests and even figured out ways to use teamwork to go even further than expected! The feedback and bug fixes we were able to take care of by the mass amounts of you completing the quests helped us tremendously and we are so glad everyone is enjoying them. Now that the dust has settled and the quest completers have had the chance to relax a bit I am pleased to announce the winners of the competition based on total number of quests completed.

🥇 1st/2nd Place - A tie, Txnner and Miiilo with 87 quests each 🥇

🥉3rd Place - Caius_Hart with 81 Quests 🥉

Congrats to the winners, we hope everyone enjoyed this competition, we hope to be able to provide more content like it in the future for you all to participate in!

━ NodeSMP ━

book-quill-ink.png

If you haven't already noticed yet, we've introduced a new server to our network known as NodeSMP. Currently the server isn't much more than a Towny Survival server but we have a tons of plans to add to it. Currently the server is in a beta period as we test new features to see what sticks best with the player base. Over the course of the next couple of weeks we will be playing with different ideas to craft the ultimate Minecraft experience for you to enjoy. The server accepts players from any Minecraft version of 1.9-1.16.5 in addition to any bedrock players on Xbox/PS4/Switch/Pocket Edition etc. Though we recommend running Java 1.16.5 for the best possible experience.
