Is there a way that instead of having the choices in a choice menu script show on the left hand side display on the right?

6: Still water (events will be reflected by these tiles)
7: Normal water

I think because you didn't define where the player respawns after he/she loses a battle.

You can edit that in PBS>Metadata.txt

I din't know if it has been incorporated or in the works, but is there a way to add music when the player is surfing or riding a bike, like in the games?

I'm having a bit of trouble following the notes. I'm a noob to this. Maybe you could give examples of the codes. Otherwise, great job! It looks very somewhat authentic.

Question: When adding a new pokemon, what type of file should the images be, especially the icon?

Editagain: sorry for this barrage of ignorance, but I get this message with my new pokemon when I try to playtest

@Firemaker.

Your images should be 128 * 128 I believe but that's not the problem here. You need to have two egg groups (in Compatibility) but you can have 15 twice so don't worry about that.

Not having an icon may be a problem when you open the POKeMON screen but it's easy enough to put a placeholder in, just make copy of another pokemons icon, rename it to icon494.png (I find Ditto quite an appropriate placeholder, but maybe that's just me).

Hope that sorts your problem out.

Firemaker - they should be .png files.
Besides, apart from the 2 egg groups thing, I see some more mistakes.
1. Cahibrek only has 5 base stats.
2. Spelling mistakes in the movelists - some erroneous spaces, and WHIRLWID.
3. Air Slash. As far as I know, D/P moves aren't in Essentials.
4. Minor, but still - in Cahibrek's dex entry, "there" should be "their".

Sinisterbutt - use the Visual Editor (It's in the Debug menu).

Actually, it happens to me so much, that I can't even test play anymore, resulting in a halt in my game progress. It's an annoying error in which I hope gets solved soon. =/

First and foremost, I would like to say this.
This is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! I have never seen anything work so well, and it gets updated so often. I just updated my game and another one came out O.o

Now, to my question:
Would there be any way to add a shiny Pokemon to the party? (pbAddPokemon(), but it adds a shiny).
If no, then would it be possible to script it? (To lazy to check myself )

That doesn't work, only on some errors does it actually restart itself. But in this case, it doesn't, it just hangs there, hence the error.
