MewBot is a great Pokecord alternative, especially as Pokecord itself bit the dust in June. So, here’s how to play this great and decently feature-rich Discord pokemon bot including all commands, strategy information, spawning information and more!

Official MewBot updates:
Restore Missing MewBot Pokemon
- ;restore (link to message from mewbot with ;info output containing the pokemon you want)
- This feature was added to the game to help people (one by one…) restore missing pokemon. after yet another database loss. Most pokemon appear lost though I still had a few in my list.
- This gif shows the process, or type ;restore to pop it up in discord.
- You also need to use the command within the same channel as the ;info message
Adding MewBot to Discord
Top.gg has an invite link, just let the bot in and then you can use the ;start command to begin playing and ;help to see various help topics and commands.
Spamming doesn’t spawn pokemon! Only real, back and forth conversations with multiple people reliably spawn pokemon. Talk like a normal person in populated channels to spawn mons.
If you want to play MewBot you can play it in the official server, which is also the only place to get support for bugs etc. Please do not join my server just to play with bots, join the official server.
MewBot vs Pokecord Differences
Mewbot is a bit less reliable and (until it shut down) was less popular than Pokecord. Mewbot somewhat often goes down for up to a few hours, and at one point lost save data for players.
Mewbot spawns don’t work quite like Pokecord; you don’t need a command, just type the Pokemon’s name. New spawns do not override existing spawns (hallelujah!), but they do despawn after about 40 minutes. Mewbot edits the spawn post to show if a Pokemon is caught or despawned.
Mewbot has minigames like fishing, game corner, and even NPC battles. Fishing is a Hangman style guessing game and NPC battles are instant 1v1 fights with a random opponent (usually a Starter or Legendary Pokemon). These activities give items or money that can be used to buy items or pokemon in the market.
