As the title says, i'm trying to add in [many] new species to Pokemon.txt, however I'm running into an issue when I load the editor.exe.

Exception: RuntimeError
Message: Bad line syntax (expected syntax like XXX=YYY)
File PBS/pokemon.txt, section 588, key WildItemRare

Compiler:1659:in `pbEachFileSectionEx'

Now, it says that its running off on WildItemRare, but for entry 588, there is no WildItemRare entry

    The following version is outdated a great deal. Do not bother downloading it. I will have a new, revised version up eventually. If you really want the engine, I can provide you with the current engine Faith & Prayer version uses.

Can you please send me a copy of your pokemon.txt file? I want to get this properly sorted out, and it helps if I can actually recreate whatever is causing the error. You can upload it to MediaFire or somewhere and PM me the link.

I actually forgot I made this post, seeing as it was early in the morning before I fell asleep. Forgot to mention that I had fixed it.
What the problem was, was that the entry right below is, Index Number 589, had a screwed up tag. The issue was that Entry 589 had no "Abilities=" tag, but there was an ability there "COMPOUNDEYES". Once I readded the Abilities= tag, it fixed itself. I'm not sure why the debugger told me the issue was with the previous entry.

Finally, an explanation!

It's also a quick fix to make the error message point to the correct section, but it's a bit odd the way it works. Oh well. I've also put an explanation on the wiki.
