    The battletype option: 'shift' or 'set'.

    In the official games, when choosing 'shift', you are able to switch pokemon after one of the opponents pokemon faints. Before switching, you are shown which pokemon will be send out. This function has been included in essentials, probably a long time ago.

    In the official games, the 'shift' settings, which is my personal preference, is rather unfair: although you are allowed to switch, your opponent is not. For this reason I often choose 'set' as the battletype. Why not make the opponent switch pokemon too? As soon as you picked your replacement of your fainted pokemon, the opponent gets a free option to withdraw. Of course, your pokemon will decide which pokemon to sent out after hearing about your new pokemon.

    Thank you for your consideration.
