Hey everyone, quick question regarding the battle system in Essentials (and in Pokemon in general I guess). I'm wondering which procedures are entirely or partly random and/or rely on probability calculations. I am aware of critical hits, and move effects like confusion, paralysis, burn etc etc but I was wondering if there are any others. It's been a while since I've messed with Essentials or even played Pokemon so it would be a big help. Cheers.

You can start reading here:

For starters, look under 'Other' --> 'Randomization adjustment'

This should be all you need, except that I cannot tell you what is actually implemented in Pokemon Essentials (I would have to test it or at least read through the scripts. But you can do that, right?)

Generally uses this method:

def pbRandom(x)
  return rand(x)
rand ranges from 0...x

Critical hit are done using 'pbIsCritical?' method. Some effects durations like confusion are setted when the pokémon become confused.
