When opening a Gym


Everyone upgrading to v5.1+ see my guide on how to set up and prepare for the queues.


What is this plugin?

This plugin enables you to set Gym Leaders on your server that are given a certain permission 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. Not only that, now challengers of the gym join a queue, and get pulled through the queue and teleported into the gym.

There is a lot more to explain about the plugin, if you want to read everything about the features, you can go to this link:


Otherwise, you can scroll down to my tutorial video at the bottom of the page.

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


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.

    @kayc01: Go

    Ok another improvement that would be appreciated, anyone who is /op seems to end up leader of the rock gym or the first gym on the list. Can you stop this, as any admin on my server who log on get "The Rock Gym Leader, has come online"

    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!
