    Johto and Hoenn are currently (soon to update!) using 5.1.2, which you can run using the normal Pixelmon launcher if you already downloaded 5.1.2 from there, or the Pixelmon Revival pack from the technic launcher. Do not confuse this with Pixelmon Reborn, which is 5.1.3 and not used on Journey.

  6. I don't get the 1.8 option for java, what should I do? It only goes up to 1.7.0 and I need 1.8 to run it.

    When I try to join, even with Technic, I get a rejection saying I need Pixelmon 5.1.4a. Anyone else getting this, and how do I fix it?

    I believe the server updated to 1.8.3(?), if not, they're on 1.8.2.2, are you using either of those versions :?

    I'm using the Technic launcher version, and still can't get on. :/

    Yes, Technic launcher has different versions, when did you download this one or which version number does it have? Maybe double check you're using the correct modpack.

    Or you may need to fish around in %appdata% -> roaming -> .technic -> modpacks -> pixelmon-513-pro, I don't launch from Technic myself but I heard that there was an issue where Dark has an extra mods folder inside the original mods, Rumba posted in Discord all you need to do is move Pixelmon Dark file back into the first mods folder and delete the surplus one, however someone also mentioned it would be fixed in the next update, so this may not be the case.

    ok it's only because in the dark pixelmon site they took 2.0 because of the bugs .. so much so that the mod of this version if they are not available for download on the site and to take in the technic takes hours .. but thanks for the information .. I will miss the daily but I will wait for the better version.
