Pixelmon is an Open World RPG or role-playing game and the characters are to be bought as an NFT. Within the games, players can train, evolve and trade their Pixelmon. This holds similarities with Pokemon. The Pixelmon NFTs collection or Pixelmon Generation 1 NFT was launched in February of 2021 through a Dutch auction.
But the unusual thing was the mint price of the NFT collection. Usually, the mint price of an NFT collection comes in decimals but in the case of Pixelmon Generation 1, the mint price was 3 Eth. That is a lot through the eyes of a common observer. But with all the hype of an Open world game the project collected a whopping $70 million.
In this article, you will get a deeper look into the Pixelmon NFT collection.
What are Pixelmons?
Pixelmons are the creatures that roam around the virtual world known as Eden. These creatures come in a multitude of shapes and sizes. They have more utilities than just loitering around in the virtual world. These Pixelmons can be caught by the players and they can be collected as NFTs. These Pixelmon NFT can be traded and sold by the players making them money. The Pixelmons of Generation 1 collection cannot be seen roaming around in the virtual world, therefore cannot be caught and could only be acquired during the minting phase.
On owning a Pixelmon NFT the holder gets access to utilities such as early access and rewards.
Generation 1 Pixelmon grants the holders access to the exclusive airdrop of Pixelmon land. The holders gain the advantage of owning the Pixelmon lands before everyone else. The Land will come in a myriad of combinations such as tents, rooms, shacks, mansions, shops, and castles too. With the tents and rooms, the players can stay in the wilderness and explore it and catch Pixelmons. The ones who acquire shops will be able to sell items in the game and there are more infinite possibilities of what one can do.
The team has planned to release the Pixelmon land in Q2 of 2022.
Not only lands the holders of Generation 1 will get the chance to take part in the Alpha Launch of the Pixelmon game. The Generation 1 Pixelmon that the holders appear to be a Level 2 Pixel Pass which will give them access to the alpha. In addition to the alpha, the holders will also get exclusive access to the in-game items and events.
The Generation 1 Pixelmon will also bring its holders a multitude of in-game rewards and items. With these, the holders can customize their trainers, decorate their rooms, tents, and a lot of other possibilities. These items can also be traded, sold, and bought through the Pixelmon marketplace.
Although these cool items can only be obtained by owning Generation 1 Pixelmon NFT and no other way. So hold on to those NFTs to gain a myriad of rewards.
The Generation 1 NFT will give the holders exclusive access to the Pixelmon Token. These tokens will probably be used in the items to upgrade, evolve the Pixelmons and buy and sell items. The team is set to launch these tokens in Q2 of 2022.
