Right, so you want to learn some Poke-Essentials scripting? Well, you came to the right place (sorta if you want to learn basics Medium + Advance comming soon....)

Contents


1 Contents
2 Basic Commands
3 Basic Scripts
4 Medium Commands


BEFORE YOU THINK THIS IS COMPLETE IT'S NOT!

Basic Commands
The basics are just adding elements to your game... (the pb stuff)

Kernel.pbMessage(_INTL("Message here")) - Displays a message Via Script.
pbAddPokemon(PBSpecies::PokemonNameHere, Level) - Adds a pokemon and it's level
pbReceiveItem(PBItems::ItemNameHere) - Receive Item
pbItemBall(PBItems::ItemNameHere) - Receive Item (from a pokeball thing)
pbGenerateEgg(PBSpecies::PokemonNameHere) - generates a pokemon egg (PARTY MUST HAVE LESS THAN 6 POKEMON TO RECEIVE)
pbAddForeignPokemon(species,level,ownerName,nickname), Adds a Pokemon owned by someone else

Basic Scripts:

Basic scripts are consisted of stuff you find above + a few more commands, here is a basic script with comments on how it works

def pbGenerateDebugParty # call method, (use pbGenerateDebugParty to activate)
Kernel.pbMessage(_INTL("Giving you your debug party + a random masterball...."))
pbReceiveItem(PBItems::MasterBall) # Adds a master ball
pbAddPokemon(PBSpecies::Mew, PBExperience::MAXLEVEL) # adds a mew at max level
pbAddPokemon(PBSpecies::Mewtwo, PBExperience::MAXLEVEL) # adds a mewtwo at max level
pbAddPokemon(PBSpecies::Deoxys, PBExperience::MAXLEVEL) # adds a Deoxys at max level
pbAddPokemon(PBSpecies::Jirachi, PBExperience::MAXLEVEL) # adds a Jirachi at max level
pbAddPokemon(PBSpecies::Arceus, PBExperience::MAXLEVEL) # adds an Arceus at max level
pbAddPokemon(PBSpecies::Magikarp, 1) # adds a Magikarp at level 1
# NOTE: THESE MAY NEED TO BE CAPITALIZED DEPENDING ON INTERNAL NAME OF POKEMON!!
end # Ends script so it doesn't crash game.

Calling this will give you those 6 pokemon at those levels.


Medium Commands:

Pokemon Creations:
p=PokeBattle_Pokemon.new(specieshere,levelhere,$TrainerIfOwnedByTrainer)
p.makeShiny - makes pokemon shiny
p.makeShadow - makes pokemon shadow
p.moves[0-3] - moves array (0 being first, 1 being second, ect)
p.form - current form
p.gender - current gender
p.isShiny? - returns true if the pokemon is shiny else false
p.isShadow? - returns true if the pokemon is shadow else false
p.abilityflag = 0-2 - (2 being hidden ability)
p.setNature(natureIDhere)
I can go on about the different stats, but you get the idea....

pbAddToParty(p) when you are done to add to party

downloading strings - string=pbDownloadToString(URLHERE)
downloads a string from the url to string

$Trainer - trainer fixnum
$Trainer.party - party pokemon array
$Trainer.party[0-5] - 0 being first, 1 being second, ect
$Trainer.party.length - gets the players party length
$Trainer.name = "Bob" - sets the player's name to Bob


Converting variables to files

File.open('text.txt', 'wb'){|f| - we use wb to write and rb to read....
f.write("Hello, this is a sample text file!!!") - writes what it says inside the ""
} - closes the file

Converting files to strings

File.open('text.txt', 'rb'){|f|
string=f.read - reads the WHOLE text.txt
}

p string - prints out what it says in text.txt

converting strings to variables and then back to a string....
string = "4"
string = string.to_i - .to_i is to interger
string += 50
string.to_s - .to_s is to string

array=[string, string.to_i -= 10] - writes an array
array.pack("M") - does a compile over the strings...

then we can add it to a file
File.open('text.txt', 'wb'){|f|
f.write(array)
}

just so we can load it
File.open('text.txt', 'wb'){|f|
array=f.read
}
array.unpack("M") - uncompiles array

p array - prints out the array....

Medium Scripts comming soon....

Alright, this is really cool. I'm having trouble making a script to obtain a shiny shroomish from a NPC. I've tried using a switch but it doesn't work. So how would I make a script that is triggered by a switch to give the player a shiny shroomish, yet has a preset nickname?

Thanks,
Pia Carrot

Common event: Auto run by Switch [switch here]

Script: p = PokeBattle_Pokemon.new(PBSpecies::SHROOMISH, level here)
p.name = "Nickname inside the parentheses"
p.makeShiny
pbAddToParty(p)


switch here == off
