Cheers for the link!! Looks like he has good resources and also there's a fair bit of code for me to look at.
Almost managed to get the pokemon battlers as required now - it's not a priority but I'd appreciate some help at some point...
Over Christmas i did what any good programmer should and did a full code review, which was painful. But it means everything's a lot more organised, a little quicker, and a lot less embarrassing for me to show you guys. That said, I'm working on getting a demo together so you guys can play around with the engine yourself, so expect that in the next few days.
I've attached some more screenshots, including one using Gen 4 tiles, and one of the XML files which are used to define the game. Take a look!
