This week we are delighted to present “PokéFind”. A server themed all around Pokémon, with 4 different game modes, lush landscapes, a friendly community and more!
This blog post is part of a series on some of our amazing webstores. Giving readers insight into what it is like to run a game server, and letting our merchants tell their story as to how they got started in the world of server management. Last time, we checked out Rustpocalypse Gaming one of our awesome servers for RUST.
Minecraft, developed by Mojang, is one of the recent success stories of the gaming industry. Having launched in 2011, after a successful beta period that garnered a ravenous fan base, Minecraft then went on to become the single best selling game of all time. Eventually bought by Microsoft in 2014, the story of Minecraft didn't stop there, with new game modes and iterations of the much loved game being launched. Fans all around the world fell in love with the concept, music, and simplicity of the vanilla experience. Minecraft spawned a fanbase that has created a plethora of YouTube content, huge amounts of artwork, and a vast array of mod packs, and texture packs. Minecraft is already a classic.
PokéFind is a server themed around exploration and Pokémon! There are four different Game Modes found in PokéFind. Pokémon Survival, Pokémon World, Pokémon Skyblock and PokéWars. We will be taking a more detailed look at these modes further down in this feature. PokéFind's Webstore is powered by Tebex! They offer Ranks, Server specific items such as Battle Passes, Eggs, Items, Cosmetics and more.

PokéFind has a variety of different Achievements across it's different Game Modes. There are:
Network Achievements, Pokémon World Achievements, Skyblock Achievements, PokéWars achievements, Pokémon Survival Achievements and Factions Achievements.
The Achievement Rewards category unlocks exclusive rewards for achievement hunting efforts. These rewards are packs that can be redeemed using Points. These contains lots of nice rewards such as Gems, experience, Gold, crates, Eggs and more!
The Crate Altar can be found in the main Hub behind the various server NPCs. Crates have different tiers, these range from "Wooden, Iron, Gold, Rare and Epic". You can earn any tier crate by playing a full game.
Crates can also be purchased with Gems which can be purchased from the PokéFind Webstore. When first logging into the PokéFind server, you will have 100 Gems, you can redeem 2 Wooden Crates with these Gems, or save them up for a higher tier crate!
PokéFind Game Modes
When loading into the PokéFind server you will be spawned in this Main Hub! There is an NPC who you can talk to who will give you a brief tutorial of the hub and how to enter the different game modes. Another NPC will show you the different Rank types and what they give. Right clicking on the Pokémon World, Skyblock and Pokémon Survival NPCs and then selecting a Server will then spawn you in those respective Game Modes. There is also the Crate Altar which we touch on further down.
A custom built Pokémon region containing Pokémon, storyline, trainers and much more to explore! Pokémon World is a massive server with 4 different Regions for you to explore! There is "Kyoto Region" which is inhabited by the first generation of Pokémon, the "Jataro Region" which is inhabited by the first and second generation of Pokémon, the "Haikou Region" which is inhabited by the first, second and third generation of Pokémon and the NEW "Shiloh Region" which is inhabited by the first, second, third and fourth generation of Pokémon.
When you first spawn into a Region server in Pokémon World, you will be greeted by Professor Hemlock. He will prompt you to listen to him and follow him to his Lab, from here you will then have the choice to choose your Pokémon to accompany you on your adventures! Depending on the Region you choose will depend on the three starter Pokémon that you can select from.
There is even a Poké Centre where you can heal your injured Pokémon and a Poké Mart to purchase various goods such as Pokéballs and Potions!
Wandering further outside of the main town you will find various Trainers ready to battle and wild Pokémon! Trainers have levels and so do Pokémon, so make sure you are levelled up appropriately before taking on Trainers and catching those higher-level Pokémon!
Inside the city is a Tutorial Building. Within this building there are 3 different large signs, these show off the key mechanics within the Pokémon World server and what you can expect on your adventures. Catching Pokémon, battling with your Pokémon and taking on the Gyms are all key elements, don't forget to enjoy the scenery on your adventures too!
Speaking of scenery, there are some amazing vistas and places to visit in the different Regions in the servers. We found a whole village built inside the treetops close to the clouds and took a few minutes to admire the landscape view of a nearby mountain top! Make sure you stop and smell the roses and take in the beautiful scenery on your travels!
Professor Hemlock gifts you with a PokéGear when you have chosen your Pokémon in his Lab. This is a key component on your adventures and has a lot of different features.

Minecraft survival world inhabited with Pokémon and containing many custom survival features!
Pokémon Survival is different to Pokémon World in that it takes the Minecraft Survival aspect but with a paint coat of Pokémon! Upon entering into the world Professor Hemlock greets you and takes you to his Lab, from here you can choose your starter Pokémon from a selection of the first, second or third generation of Pokémon.
The little hub that is in the survival server contains some interesting rooms that are not in the Pokémon World Region. There is a Gym Portal room and a Raid Portal room. The Gym Portals require different Trainer levels to enter them, so make sure you are appropriately levelled before taking these Gyms on. The Raid Portal room has 2 different portals. One is a Farmhouse Panic Raid which states that players need to "Battle hordes of angry farm animals" and a Winter Warzone Raid that states that players need to "Battle in the fiercest winter warriors in this forgotten winter oasis". We are not sure which of these we would pick as they both sounds very interesting!
Within the main city area, there is a Poké Centre, Poké Mart, Professor Hemlock's Lab and even Mitch's Workshop! In the Workshop you can deposit items into the Blacksmith Chest for Mitch to craft different items for you. Right clicking on Mitch will give you information on what he can craft. Outside of the main city area there is "The Wilderness" once you are out here you can encounter Trainers ready to battle and wild Pokémon. When talking to the Pokémon Survival NPC, there is even a "Story Server" to select from. This server contains quests and challenges that can be completed for rewards.
