When opening a Gym




What is this plugin?

This plugin enables you to set Gym Leaders on your server that are given a certain node to notify other players when the Certain Gym/Elite 4 types are Open/Closed. It also enables Challenger's of the Gym/Elite 4 to find out which gym leaders and Elite 4 leaders are online and what gym type or Elite 4 level they are leader of.

I have decided to continue developing this plugin. (I am the original Author)

I coded this plugin to be as customisable and helpful for gym challengers as possible. Using the /gym list, Gym Challengers can Easily see what gym's are open and what the level cap of that gym is so they are not asking for ages in chat whilst the Gym leaders are busy. The plugin also enables Gym Challengers to know exactly which gym leaders are online so they know who to contact. This plugin stops your server Trainers getting pissed off with not knowing whether the gym is open or not. All the same can be done for the Elite 4!

If they don't see the chat, not a problem... The Scoreboard makes it so challengers can see the open gym's to the right of there screen, useful for if they join the game after a broadcast or don't know any of the /gym commands. If they don't want the scoreboard there, also fine.. They can do /gym scoreboard to toggle it!

The plugin is heavily designed to stop unwanted chat spam of People saying "Is a rock gym leader online? Can he open the gym please???!" Trust me, I have herd it all.

Not only does the plugin make everybody happy, it is crazy customisable. You can change almost everything you need, with a few minor flaws. You can customise the Broadcast Prefix from the default "[PixelmonGym]" to anything you want. You can change names of all the 32 Gyms, change the colour of the broadcast message for each gym using colour codes, add 5 Gym rules per gym in the config, Set the level cap for the each gym and if that is not enough, then now you can close all gym's with one command. Not to mention Gym leader Join messages! Check down below for more details!

If this has not put you off getting my plugin then great!! All feedback is wanted to leave me a review!


A Permission plugin is required! This plugin works off giving gym leaders permissions to allow them to open gym's, heal there pokemon, etc...

The plugin also has a command that adds the permissions to the user for you. The supported permissions plugins are; PermissionsEX, GroupManager and BPermissions.

Optional Dependancies:

Includes a feature for the Pixelmon Mod, it is not needed but works well with it (Gym leaders healing there pokemon only)!!

How the Permissions work:

All Gym leaders must have 'pixelgym.leader' to open gym's, however they cant open any gym without a 'pixelgym.gym#' node. It is vital you set the names in the Config that you want for each gym. The plugin is highly dependent on the config. All gym names are set in the config, gym rules and broadcast colours.

However, knowing the Permission nodes are a distant past.In v4.0 you can now do /pixelgym addleader (username) <gym#>.

If you have set the config correct, to which permissions plugin you are using on your sever. It will automatically add the users required permission nodes. Making life a lot easier.

Permission Nodes:

  • - pixelgym.leader - Sets a player to a Gym Leader therefore enabling /gym <open/close> <gym> & Enables them to heal there own pokemon.
  • - pixelgym.e4leader - Sets a player to an Elite 4 leader, enabling them to be seen as a leader on the server and healing there pokemon.
  • - pixelgym.admin - Allows the usage of admin commands
  • - pixelgym.e41 - Sets the Elite 4 leader to elite 4 level 1 leader.
  • - pixelgym.e42 - Sets the Elite 4 leader to elite 4 level 2 leader.
  • - pixelgym.e43 - Sets the Elite 4 leader to elite 4 level 3 leader.
  • - pixelgym.e44 - Sets the Elite 4 leader to elite 4 level 4 leader.
  • - pixelgym.gym1 - Sets the Gym Leader to a gym1 gym leader (In broadcasts and chat, whatever gym name is set for gym1 in the config, they are the leader of)
  • - pixelgym.gym2 - Sets the Gym Leader to a gym2 gym leader.
  • - pixelgym.gym3 - Sets the Gym Leader to a gym3 gym leader.
  • - pixelgym.gym4 - Sets the Gym Leader to a gym4 gym leader.
  • - pixelgym.gym5 - Sets the Gym Leader to a gym5 gym leader.
  • - pixelgym.gym6 - Sets the Gym Leader to a gym6 gym leader.
  • - pixelgym.gym7 - Sets the Gym Leader to a gym7 gym leader.
  • - pixelgym.gym8 - Sets the Gym Leader to a gym8 gym leader
  • Ect.. (up to - pixelgym.gym32)

Permission Nodes (New to v4.0):

Now, new to v4.0 you do not even have to know the permissions needed to make someone a gym leader.

It is now done by command if you have PermissionsEX, GroupManager or BPermissions being used on your server and have set the permission plugin you are using to "True" in the PixelmonGym config.

Once you have, simply type any of the following:

/pixelgym addleader (username) <gym#>

This will add the player in the (username) area as a gym leader of the gym that you specified.


/pixelgym addleader ABkayCkay gym4

/pixelgym addleader (username) <e4#>

This will add the player in the (username) area as an elite 4 leader of the level that you specifed


/pixelgym addleader ABkayCkay e43

/pixelgym delleader (username) <gym#/e4#>

This will remove the required permissions from the player in the (username) area.


/pixelgym delleader ABkayCkay gym6


/pixelgym delleader ABkayCkay e41

    @Velosthemage: Go

    There is no way to change the position of the Scoreboard. It is a minecraft feature and can not be changed as well as i am aware of.

    @RetroVd3mx: Go

    My plugin has no association with the Pixelmon Mod Coding. Yes it is for it, but it is used without altering any of the mod. It is illegal for me to modify the Mod.

    @JoeyDevs: Go

    You do not need an API, it is completely separate. Well this plugin is anyway. I know i have seen a plugin that counts the pokedex but i have no idea how that number is gained. Sorry.

    How do you code for PixelMon? What API I need to code plugins into pixelmon for server?! ?

    @kayc01: Go

    Could you also code in pokemon breeding (Or make another plugin)? Also commands to customize IV's / EV's in a pokemon. I've seen it in a server once: fireredmc.com It's pretty interesting, if you want I could pay you to make plugins for the server.

    Hello an issue is that, if you have a minimap on your server and have more then around 6 gyms open it overlaps with the minimap so you cant read it properly. I think you need to lower the scoreboard position.

    @CraftyCore: Go

    That sounds like a good alternative yes. Ill look into that after this weekend.

    @BUDDERMAN88228: Go

    I do not plan to give out the Source. That just enables people to possibly steal the plugin in my opinion. However, if you have experience and want to add things to it. You can PM with what you want to add and what experience you have.

    Great plugin, just have on suggestion, could you make it so if you can be able to put the command in a command block it will work.

    Like if you were opening a gym you put /gym open gym7 in command block put a lever next to it and it will open the gym and same for closing.

    i think it would be a good addition to this plugin!

    @kayc01: Go

    Thanks for your reply and time. I see your point but I also feel it wouldn't be a waste of time, (if you are willing to give it) because pixelmon is running on 1.6.4 and is trying to go to 1.7 but it will not hit 1.8 for a long long time. So IDs will be used for a long time with pixelmon :) Let me know :)

    @kayc01: Go

    alright glad you could help, thanks a lot! its not that big of a pain as it solves my problem :P I only have 14 gyms anyway!

  • Avatar of kayc01 kayc01 May 20, 2014 at 06:09 UTC - 0 likes

    @wrathmaker123: Go

    Yes, for all the enabled gym's. If you have all 32 gym's enabled it can be quite annoying but its just how it works when you have - "*".

    @TheDoot: Go

    I have looked into this and i can not seem to get it to work yet. Because as a modded item i would use the item ID. But in 1.8, item ID's are going out the window. Or even earlier than 1.8.. i can't remember so there is no point doing all that when i would have to change it all, not too long down the line.

    It also currently gives me an error because it is being removed soon so it is not recommended to use ID's yet it is the only way i know of so far for coding with items in minecraft into a bukkit plugin..

    With that said, i do want that so i will look at it again. I have just been doing other things :)
