Configuring Technic Launcher

There’s a few more things left to do, Pixelmon is a rather resource-heavy mod so you’ll have to tweak some settings in Technic Launcher to keep Pixelmon from slowing down and crashing your game. You will see a installation button on the bottom right of the launcher after doing this.
Towards the top-right of technic launcher you’ll see a button called “Launcher Options”.

Allocating Memory (Ram) - Prevents FPS Issues

Once you see this, go to the Java Settings tab. You should be met with this: We need to configure the Memory Option.
To allocate more Memory, select “Memory” and change the 1 GB to 3-4 GB (this is plenty for Pixelmon).
