Not sure on how to join and play on DesertMC? Don't worry, you've come to the right place. We'll show you how to connect to DesertMC as well as download and install the DesertMC Pixelmon Reforged Modpack! Let's jump right in:
❓ How to join DesertMC:
First you want to click the "Add Server" button
A new screen should pop up, and all you need to do is just fill "play.desertmc.net" where it says "Server Address"
Now all that is left to do is connect! Press the "Join Server" button and welcome to DesertMC!
❓How to install the DesertMC Modpack:
We have an Official DesertMC Pixelmon Modpack that you can download using the Technic Launcher! Using our Modpack has multiple advantages, like how you can see any of our custom textured Pixelmon👀
Using a Pixelmon Modpack is required to be able to join our Pixelmon realm. However, the default Pixelmon Reforged Pack should work on most launchers inside and out of Technic Launcher. If you are on Vanilla Minecraft, you will need the Pixelmon & Biomes o' Plenty mods on your client.
PLEASE NOTE: You must have 64-Bit Java in order for the Technic Launcher to work, as well as at least 2 Gigabytes of RAM dedicated to the mod pack. If you do not know how to dedicate RAM to the launcher, the video below will explain how.
Step 1: Installing Technic Launcher
If you do not have Technic Launcher already, there is a very helpful YouTube video that will be listed below, that will guide you throughout the process of setting up Technic Launcher.

Here is also a direct link to the modpack: https://www.technicpack.net/modpack/desertmc-pixelmon.1846360
Just like in the picture above, you should see a modpack with the name "DesertMC Pixelmon". That's us! In the bottom right corner, all you need to do is hit the "Install" button
After the mod pack is installed, all you need to do is hit "Play" and you are all set to join and play DesertMC Pixelmon!
