    The IVs and EVs question:

    To define a Pokémon's IVs or EVs, you would use the following type of statement.

    pokemon[0].iv[0] for IVs, and pokemon[0].ev[0] for EVs.

    Substitute the first 0 in brackets to reflect the Pokémon number in your party (note, 0 is the first one, 5 is the last one). Then, substitute the second 0 to reflect the IV or EV you want to change (0=HP, 1=Attack, 2=Defence, 3=Sp. Atk, 4=Sp. Def, 5=Speed).

    So, if I wanted to change the defence IV of the third Pokémon in my party to 31, then I would simply use this statement.

    Code:
    pokemon[2].iv[2]=31
    the way you specified is for a pokemon in your party, i was talking about post-capture stat changing, but this does give me insight as to what it might be. for ex. pokemon.iv[2]=31, i know it's not much difference, but im trying to adapt it for the pokeball scripts.

    i also forgot to mention last night about day, night and location captures. how would these variables be called for a capture rate boost for a ball? i was gonna ask in my last post, but i completely forgot about it. >.<

      How do I add in custom regional Pokedex orders? According to the notes.html, I can put in a field in pokemon.txt for that and it will work.

      I can't seem to get it to work...

        I'm sorry to ask again, but I really need som answers, and I haven't got any.

        How do I change the screen size of the game?

        and

        How do I change the colour on the text that's in the message box in battle?

        I'd really appreciate if someone could answer.
        Thanks.

          .floor basically means it will round down to the nearest whole number, and it's the opposite with .ceiling, I believe. So if you use a Great Ball on a, say, Bulbasaur, the formula would be:

          rareness=(45*3/2).floor, which would yield a rareness of 67 (67.5 rounded down).

              Great job! I really like it!

              I have a problem with the trainer editor though.

              On the Editor.exe, I added a new character called "TEAM ROCKET".



              I named it "trainer083.png" in the "Characters" folder. The picture showed up in the Editor.exe, but when I try to edit it again it says...


              this. What's up with that?

                  A few how to script questions:

                  1. How to script an event where a NPC gives you a tour of town then gives you a town map?
                  I want him to approach the player once you step on a certain sqaure.

                  2. How to make someone notice you have a certain badge and give you an HM for it?

                  3. And lastly, how to make the nurse at the pokecenter say "Good morning" or "Good night" depedning on the time of day it is. Basically, I want to script it so that she only says good morning the first time you visit in the morning or good night the first the time you visit at night.

                  Thanks in advance!

                    did you put a space in the styem name for it? (the first place where the name is) because if you did, get rid of the space.

                    1, you would do it just like any other rmxp game, set a move route and stuff like that.

                    2, i think it might tell you how to do that in the note.html, but i'm note sure...

                    3, read the note.html, it tells you how to make a nightly event, meaning events based on the time of day. that should tell you what to do.

                      The first and third question are answered already, and I have a simple solution to the 2nd..
                      The battle with the gymleader, change the switch in the battleswitch, from selfswitch a to a global switch, and then on an other event if that switch is on, give the hm..
                      Hope you understand what I mean !

                          I didn't. But it fixed itself. Weird. 0_0

                          Hmm.. Another problem.

                          I made a Pokemon battle with the new "TEAM ROCKET". The text worked out okay...

                          And then, it says this: Can't find battle 1(of 5) for the trainer(TEAMROCKET, Grunt) in Trainer data file. So it said I could edit the pokemon there, and I did that. Then it suddenly says...



                          ...and I said "no". Then it went on changing it to 3(of 5) and 4 (of 5)... I wonder how I can disable that.

                          Here's my script, in case there's something wrong with it...

                            whenever i try to open my project file it says it cannot read it. I dont want to lose all my hard work so is there a way to make the file readable. if not is there a way to transfer all of my maps into a different game.

                                I made a Pokemon battle with the new "TEAM ROCKET". The text worked out okay...

                                And then, it says this: Can't find battle 1(of 5) for the trainer(TEAMROCKET, Grunt) in Trainer data file. So it said I could edit the pokemon there, and I did that. Then it suddenly says...



                                ...and I said "no". Then it went on changing it to 3(of 5) and 4 (of 5)... I wonder how I can disable that.

                                Here's my script, in case there's something wrong with it...
                                The problem is, you have a phone trainer information, meaning it's set up so that you can have several battles with the trainer when they call you. to fix this so that it's a 1 time trainer, do this:

                                get rid of 4 of the "comment: battle:"s, so that there is only 1.
                                get rid of the "comment: regspeech"
                                get rid of the "script:kernel.pnTrainerCheck"
                                and lastly, get rid of the "script: pbPhoneRegisterBattle".
                                and there, all fixed. :D

                                    Thanks for the help A-R. Is it okey that I call you that? xD

                                    How do I add a shiny pokèmon, instead of just a normal pokèmon?
                                    I've tried changing "Kernel.pbAddPokemon(PBSpecies:OKEMON,5)"
                                    to "Kernel.pbAddPokemon(PBSpecies:HINX,SHINY,5)" and
                                    Kernel.pbAddPokemon(PBSpecies:HINXSHINY,5),
                                    but nothing works.

                                    I'd really appreciate help.
                                    Thanks.

                                        By the way, is anyone else having issues with the sound? when i play test my game, the sound breaks every couple seconds, and it didn't do that before the update.

                                            Shiny Wild Pokemon

                                            To allow shiny wild battles, you first need to define a switch for shiny Pokemon, say, 50. Now, create a new script section that contains the following:
                                            Events.onWildPokemonCreate+=proc {|sender,e|
                                            pokemon=e[0]
                                            if $game_switches[50]
                                            pokemon.makeShiny end}

                                            Then, enable the switch (in this case, 50) before a wild battle with a shiny Pokemon, and disable the switch when the battle is over. Example:

                                            Control Switches: [0050: Shiny] = ON
                                            Script: pbWildBattle(:BSpecies::GYARADOS,30,1)
                                            Control Switches: [0050: Shiny] = OFF

                                            This copied right from the notes.html..
                                            So next time, look a little bit better ok

                                              That's just for a pokèmon battle, not for adding a shiny pokèmon to the party.

                                                Yes true..
                                                I thought that was what you wanted..
                                                But then just try to turn on the switch, add the pokemon and then urn the switch off..
                                                I'm not sure about that though..
                                                Just try that..
                                                If it still doesn't work..
                                                I'll try to work that out, but that can take a few days so..

                                                  I think I've asked this question for one time but received no valuable answer. I mean, how do I add background music for Bicycle theme and Surfing theme? Now the music doesn't change when I use surf or start to ride on a bicycle. Please help.
