I was going to reply to a number of these posts individually, as I feel the server I play on fits many of the requests here, but I think I'll just post the general information.
The server is a recreation of the Pokemon Nation map, currently there is the Kanto region, with Johto opening in the next couple weeks, and Hoenn is being worked on as we speak.
The server only uses the Pixelmon mod, as well as a number of server-side plugins that allow for NPC gym battles, gym puzzles, quests, the Elite 4 and Gary (all NPC battles), allowing for 24/7 gym battles (no need for Gym leaders to be online or anything). We also have pokemon that spawn in the tall grass in proper areas, as they would in Pokemon Fire Red (for the Kanto region).
The server is administered entirely by the owners at the moment, no corrupt Staff. The community is welcoming and friendly, and every item and pokemon is obtainable naturally (some things can also be purchased from the Webshop if desired).
There is an adventure segment (the Kanto map) to familiarize players with the server before allowing them access to the Wild, where they can build and explore (and catch those rare type pokemon, such as legendaries). PVP is disabled, and damage is turned off everywhere except the Nether and End (in case you wish to PVP there or whatever). This ensures no items are lost, and battles are Pokemon vs Pokemon, not player vs player.
Simply put, it's an adventure server start (8 Kanto Gyms, run by server-side NPCs, then the Elite 4), followed by an open world where you can build player run gyms and such. It uses Grief Prevention (golden shovel) protection to claim areas in the Wild. There is also a public mine within Kanto if you wish to craft items earlier, as well as individual claimable homes in Viridian City, to store items while you quest. PM me for more information if you wish.
The server is a family-friendly environment, so no swearing, griefing, scamming, etc. so that may not appeal to everyone here, but for those looking for this type of server, I think it's worth checking out.
The server IP is: play.pixelbuilt.org
