Are you making your Pokemon game with RMXP and P.Essentials? Do you have loads of rebattles with the same trainer, where the trainer might have the same Pokemon, but they'd just be a different level? Or do you want to be able to rebattle a trainer, and have their Pokemon become stronger or weaker without creating a new PBS entry? There is a very simple solution for you, and it goes like this. Go to PokemonUtilities script and anywhere (outside a def of course) place the following code:
def pbLevelModifier(type,factor=1)
@levels=[]
i=0
($Trainer.party.length).times do
@levels.push($Trainer.party[i].level)
i+=1
end

@maxlevel=@levels.max
@sum=$Trainer.party[0].level

i=1
($Trainer.party.length-1).times do
@sum+=$Trainer.party[i].level
i+=1
end

@averagelevel=@sum/($Trainer.party.length)

if type=="max"
level=@maxlevel*factor
elsif type=="avg"
level=@averagelevel*factor
end
return level
end
The way you would use this is as follows: When creating a wild Pokemon Battle
pbWildBattle(species, pbLevelModifier(type,factor))
Where type should either be "max" (to find the highest party level) or "avg" (to find the average party level). Quotation marks around the types are needed! The factor value is optional if wanting to multiply the returned level by the factor percentage (where 0.01 is 1% and 1.00 is 100%)
If you'd like to place it within trainer battles, you'll have to go into PokemonTrainers, and replace

level=poke[1]

by

if $game_switches[X]==true
level=pbLevelModifier(type,factor)
else
level=poke[1]
end
Where the switch X would be your trigger for level calculations. You can play around with the scripts to adjust it any way you want, but this is just a very basic method to return either the maximum level, or the average level.

Wow, this will be incredibly handy! I'm going to add it to my game, with well deserved credit of course.

Simple easy, and requires less work to do re-battles, good work Luka.

Another thing would be random ranges for NPC wild battles and/or trainers
def pbLevelRange(min,max)
difference=max-min
level=rand(difference+1)
level+=min
return level
end
min would be the lowest possible level, and max would be the highest possible level that the Pokemon could reach. Where it falls between that line, is completely random.
