Don't worry as to where to find these materials since they exist in plentiful numbers throughout world and you'll encounter them during your normal workplay while exploring. You are also likely to come across these items in hidden treasure chests along with other handy stuff.
Pixelmon NPC Trainers
You will come across other trainers within the game who are set out to conquer the world as you are. Think of them as prize chests since when you beat them you not only get some currency which you can spend at a nearby Pokemart, but they sometimes drop cool items you may not find elsewhere. There are many types of NPCs in Pixelmon, let's mention a few here. You can read our in-depth guide to find out about the others.
When you kill a Mareep NPC Trainer you get a unique type of wool which is a bit hard to come by since there aren't any other normal animals in the game that drop wool.
Magikarp is a fish in Pixelmon just like Pokemon, and when you kill it, well, you get a fish! There's a hundred percent chance of it dropping raw fish, and just five percent chance of dropping a cooked fish. It can be found in water around lily pads, sea lanterns, sponges, sugar canes, and pretty much wherever there's a body of water. Learn mor e about it here
PRO TIP: Don't worry if your Pokemon gets damage during a battle, you can regenerate its health simply by getting in the bed and sleeping off the night. That's exactly why keeping an eue out on Mareeps and taking them out is very important as there's no many other ways to get the wool to make yourself a bed. It can also be obtained by pillaging Pokemon centers.
