Installation of the modpack may take several minutes to install - this depends on the speed of your internet connection. The size of the mod when installed is around 700MB.

Once the Pixelmon Reforged modpack is installed, the install button will change to a play button. Click this to launch the game! When you click play, the launcher may need to download some additional components. If it's your first time installing minecraft, this can take up to a couple of minutes extra to prepare the game by downloading the base files.

When the game is successfully launched you will see this screen:
