Make sure you have Minecraft closed, then run the Forge installer. Make sure you have 'install client' selected along with your Minecraft directory correctly selected (both these steps should happen automatically), then select 'OK'.
If done correctly, you should then see this message after installation.
You will now have a 'Forge' option when selecting your Minecraft version. Make sure you select it, then run Minecraft one more time. Then close it.
Next, go to your Minecraft directory (the easiest way is to open the Minecraft launcher, click 'edit profile' and then 'Open Game Dir'.
You should have a 'mods' folder, but if not, simply create one spelled EXACTLY like that, with no capitalization.
Locate the Pixelmon mod file you downloaded earlier and drag it into the 'mods' folder.
Pixelmon is now INSTALLED! To check it works properly, open Minecraft, click the 'Mods' button under 'Multiplayer' and look for Pixelmon. If it is included in the list, you're set to play!
Add Pocket Pixels to your server list with the IP 'play.pocketpixels.net'!
Now that you're all set up and ready to play... log in and catch 'em all!
(Note your game will likely crash the first time you log in to any Pixelmon server! Just re-log and you'll be set to play!)
