Adding Plugins to your Pixelmon Server

Add the Correct Version of SpongeForge to the Server

Other plugin managers such as Spigot and Bukkit won't work with Pixelmon, so SpongeForge will need to be used instead.

Manual Install

Download the latest recommended version of the SpongeForge jar for version 1.12.2 here. Once you have that downloaded, it will need to be uploaded to the mods folder of the server.

One Click Installer

NodePanel offers a super easy way to install this. Simply head over to the One Click Installer on the left side of your panel and select "SpongeForge 1.12.2" from the catalog. Make sure you select the one with "1.12.2" in the title, specifically! The installation method should already be on "Merge", but if it isn't, then select that and then hit the install button. That's it!

Installing Plugins

Once it's installed, upload all plugins as well as mods to the mods folder. If using the Plugin Manager, be sure to change the plugin engine to SpongeForge in the top left corner.

Be sure to restart the server for the changes to take effect.

All the plugins and side mods must be compatible with Minecraft version 1.12.2, previous versions will not work.
