5. Wait the approximate 5 seconds for the "SKIP" button to appear in the top right of the tab and click it.
6. Your antivirus may flag the download as unsafe. The download is NOT malicious (if it were, everyone that uses mods, including streamers, would have computer viruses), so you can navigate the download and circumvent the antivirus block by selecting an option to keep.

3. Click on the title that says "Pixelmon Mod 8.1.2" and click the blue button that says "DOWNLOAD TM." This will take you to a new tab; DO NOT CLICK ANYTHING. Wait for the allotted 5 seconds to click the "SKIP" button in the top right of the tab.

5. After downloading, move the mod file onto your desktop or into a folder.
