The reality is the Pixelmon Minecraft found in the Free Games section of Google Play is really a set of wallpapers, and conveniently enough they have ads. How lovely.

Update: Pixelmon Minecraft has been removed from Google Play!

If you look at the reviews on Google Play, other Android users echo the same sentiment: This is not a game. What a disappointment.
