    Hello! Welcome to my little guide on pokeball recipes and crafting.
    Of course, pokeballs are an important part of the game and certain types of pokeballs have different advantages to others.
    Use CTRL+F and search for "all recipes" if you want to skip the tutorial and view the recipes and
    information on all the pokeballs.

    What you need to make pokeballs:
    To make pokeballs you will need apricorns, an anvil (pixelmon kind, not the regular minecraft anvil), a hammer, a pokeball lid, iron base and a stone button.

    How to make hammers, anvils and buttons:
    Hammers can be crafted on your crafing table. Depending on the materials you have, you can make a few different types.

    [​IMG]

    Wooden is the least durable and takes the longest to shape the lids and bases and diamond is the most durable and shapes the fastest. I recommend using stone hammers, they're the best thing to use that doesn't waste valuable materials. Iron is not -too- hard to find, but I personally save that for other things (such as pokeballs!)

    An anvil requires 8 iron ingots on a crafting bench or you can buy one from the pokemart for $3000.

    The buttons are the easy part. To make a button you need stone, the easiest way to get stone is by smelting
    some cobblestone in a furnace and then place it on your crafting bench to create a button.

    How to make a pokeball lid:
    To make pokeball lids you will need cooked apricorns. You can find apricons anywhere in forest biomes, from other players and you can even look at the spawn on your server for an apricorn farm. You can cook them in a furnace the same way you would food.
    You can plant raw apricorns to grow an apricorn tree and farm your own that way.

    You can combine different coloured apricorns to make different pokeball lids. For this example, I will use two cooked blue apricons and one red cooked apricorn to make two Great Ball discs.

    Before this can be made in to a pokeball, you will have to shape it on the anvil to make it in to a lid.


    Hold the Great Ball Disc in your hand and right-click to place it on your anvil. Next, equip your hammer and click and hold down the left mouse button to start shaping the lid. You must keep it held down until it eventually changes to the final shape:

    Once it gets to the final shape, right-click the anvil again to take it off and tah-dah! You just made a lid!


    How to make an Iron Base:

    Iron Bases are the bottom part of your pokeball and are used for every kind.
    You can make an Iron Base using 3 iron ingots on a crafting bench. 3 ingots produce 5 discs.
    [​IMG]

    Repeat the process above on your anvil to shape it. Each stage can be a bit difficult to see, but you eventually get an eye for it:

    Now put them all together in your crafting bench and you have your pokeball!

    All recipes for pokeball lids:

    The better the pokeball you use for your situation, the better your chances of catching.
    Master Balls can't be crafted and can only be obtained either from other players or if dropped when defeating a boss pokemon.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] Heal Ball - Fully heals the captured pokemon's HP and any status effects (sleep, poison etc). Only really effective if the pokemon is going straight to your party or to save you taking it out of the PC to heal.
    [​IMG] Fast Ball - Good for catching pokemon with a base speed of 100+.
    [​IMG] Repeat Ball - Good for catching a pokemon that you previously caught (such as all those Eevees you need!)
    [​IMG] Timer Ball - The more turns you have in the battle, the better this pokeball will be.
    [​IMG] Heavy Ball - Good for large and heavy pokemon (such as Snorlax).
    [​IMG] Net Ball - Good for catching bug and water type pokemon.
    [​IMG] Dive Ball - Good for catching pokemon that live in the sea.
    [​IMG] Dusk Ball - Increases the catch rate by 3 times when used at night time or in a dark place such as caves. Better than an Ultra Ball in these situations.
    [​IMG] Moon Ball - Good for catching pokemon that evolve with a Moon Stone, such as Clefairy, Jigglypuff, Nidorino and Nidorina.
    [​IMG] Premier Ball - Has the same catch rate as the normal Poke Ball. Only difference is the red particle effect when thrown.
    [​IMG] Luxury Ball - Adds an extra +1 happiness each time the pokemon gains happiness.
    [​IMG] Friend Ball - The captured pokemon will have a happiness value of 200 instead of 0. Highly useful for Eevees that you want to evolve to Umbreon and Espeon, which requires 220.
    [​IMG] Safari Ball - Good for catching pokemon found in the jungle.

    Bit of a stretch to say 'everyone', I still see newbies each day coming to the game asking questions about pokeballs.
    Plus, it's handy to see all the recipes for the lids and what they do.

    Well if that's the case, you can find information on the wiki in other guides here too but there's still guides made for those, doesn't make them bad guides or pointless. In fact, you could find all that information on Google but the point of guides here is for convenience ^^ Such as your guide on how to be a nice player; everyone knows how to be a nice player, but a guide doesn't hurt.
