Pokemon Red/Blue's Kanto Region Being Rebuilt in Minecraft

Pokemon Red/Blue's Kanto Region Being Rebuilt in Minecraft

Reddit user MediocreJake has spent more than 120 hours working on a Minecraft version of the Kanto region from Pokemon Red/Blue.

While I never really got into the sequels, there was a period of time where I was absolutely addicted to Pokemon Red and Blue. "Gotta Catch 'Em All" wasn't just some marketing slogan, it was a personal mantra that kept me up nights as I endeavored to be the very best like no on ever was. That being the case, you can perhaps understand my personal appreciation of a recently unveiled Minecraft project being pieced together by Reddit user MediocreJake.

Mr. Jake, presumably a Pokemon fan himself, recently took to recreating a complete and interconnected version of the Kanto region as represented in Red/Blue. While still a work in progress, Jake's project has already taken more than 40 hours of planning and 120 hours of build time. Granted, we've seen some Minecraft undertakings that were a bit more time consuming overall, but we're not going to knock someone who was willing to sit in front of their computer for five days to build something cool.

According to Jake there were a few complications that he had to contend with while building his Kanto recreation. "Getting the scale right was pretty difficult to be honest," he said. Aligning the game's various cities was apparently something of a trial at times, as well. "Celadon and Fuchsia weren't lined up correctly, so Route 17 (Cycling Road) ended up way too long, so I had to re-align a few cities and routes, which was a pain." Currently MediocreJake is still working on the interior portions of the game, which he intends to connect together with Multiverse warps. When he finishes with Kanto, he hopes to make a similar version of the Johto region from Pokemon Gold and Silver. Players interested in exploring Jake's Kanto for themselves will need to join his personal server, which he's in the process of opening.

Hasn't this been done a fair few times already by various people?

Not to take away from the time and energy spent to recreate this but it's nothing new, I've seen a few on Youtube myself

I wonder if I should cease to be impressed by these Minecraft feats. Yeah, I'll do that. Call me when someone's done a country!

Despite however many years it has been (a decade?) since I last touched Blue, it's amazing just how much of that was instantly familiar.

*wonders where I put my copy of Red*

Pfft, that's nothing! Fijiman, staika, T0ad of Truth and myself have made way more impressive stuff than that, like covering an entire Mushroom Biome in TNT, pouring lava over everything (granted, the latter was mostly their idea) Flooding The End (my latest feat) and flling houses with TNT and making them go off simultaneously.

Yeah, we aren't very creative, although we are playing a map in survival and we turned a Mushroom Biome into home and found tons of diamonds and an abandoned mineshaft under it.

You know, this just makes me really really want to see a realistic interpretation of the first two Pokemon regions rendered in Minecraft. Some locations based from the anime, some from the game, but all full (gigantic) size. It'd be freaking beautiful.

I really hope there's a map download for this. So awesome!

I did that in Sim City 2000.

I just went on Planet Minecraft and found five completely complete maps of Kanto, and some look a lot better than what this guy is building. People have built pokemon worlds, some have built massive cities (Greenfield), there is even one guy who rebuilt the entire map of Twilight Princess in Minecraft. It's hard to be impressed by something when you see it done all the time.

Except in this case, it's also a rebuild of the interior parts.

If possible please add in the article that the creator has stated that the only way you can see his version of Kanto is by joining his server (which he has a waitlist)and he is not distributing it. I was very sad to see that part left out of the article when I decided to go and try and download it. :(

Good idea and can do! Sorry for the sadness. :(
