If you like customized things (unlike some basic ones), so or you find some scripter to team up, or learn by yourself.
That's my view of Essentials, yes. You could be able to make a game without once going into the Script Editor. That's not to say you can avoid using scripts, though (you must use things like pbChangePlayer and Kernel.pbSetPokemonCenter and pbAddPokemon), but you can (barely) just get away with some copying of existing scripts. You'll still need to learn how things actually work, though, at least on a conceptual level.

So long as someone tells me what to do (either here or in a PM), okay.
