    In response to #3

    In the latest version of essentials you can change it so you can type the characters name and pokemon nick names. heres a link to me explaining how to do so. Not sure if this is exactly what you mean but it touches base on the Name entry

      To set the scene, you can already define the species/level/IVs/held item/moveset/shininess/Shadowness of a trainer's Pokémon.

      Off the top of my head, the following properties may also be fair game for being defined: form/gender/nature/ability/happiness/EVs/nickname/ballused.

      That's a huge amount of things. I will certainly add more options, but I'd rather not add all those in if I can help it. EVs and ballused will probably not be options, and I'm unsure about happiness and nature.

      Cue the cries of: "But I want it all!" Give me good reasons, then.

        Setting Trainer pokemon EVs, Natures, and Abilities would be the options I'd want most. Form is also up there, but it is something that can be set with held items easily, so it is less necessary in my eyes.

        Could we possibly get the 'stat colors' in the future, which show what stats are affected by the Pokemon's nature (positive and negative effect) in the summary screen? Not really a pressing issue but it would be swell.

          I'd like to see scrolling through large or connected region maps.
          Like the connected Johto and Kanto? or taller/longer regions that are possibly surpass the set size?
          Probably just something I want to see...

              I bring a contribution for Pokebattle_MoveEffect.
              They all work well, except the last one.

              This effect(Reflect Type) is not completely nice, I do not know in that circumstances it has to fail.

              It me does not work, I do not know because.

              What is clear is that it works copying the types of the rival. Shiftry copied the types Dark/Flying, and Wing Attack damaged to him neutral.

                  It could be possible manually, you could copy the save file to another location such as the desktop and then overwrite the previous save. while your in game and depending on the game u want to start u could switch between them manually.

                      In Maruno's to-do list, multiple saves is a possible intended feature.

                        Multiple saves can easily be done, check around, there are a few scripts already available, just have to change some things, but that's what learning is about, right?!

                        I will have a look soon if Maruno doesn't see this as an Essential... It's not essential to me as why would I save 2 games?! It's a form of cheating! I don't approve.

                          Multiple saves really is not that hard. All you need is the save file function to be dependent on a game variable for it's game save name. For instance for the save system in my game it's set up with all the save commands that are all defining the game save name and calling the name is like this "Game#{$savevariable}.rxdata" The game save number gets changed by the Global variable $savevariable.

                              could an in battle form indicator be added (like we have an indicator that shows if we own the pokemon could something similar be added showing we own the form
                              I think that's too specific; an indicator for whether the species has been owned is enough. After all, things can depend on the number of species owned.

                              If you want to change it yourself, go to PokeBattle_Battler and edit line 199.

                                This might be an awkward request but I am making a Pokemon game that has a very evil corporation. I was wondering, if some could add a function where the player can actually get a 'Game Over' instead of being sent to the last visited Pokemon center.
                                The game I am creating is more like a role playing game.
                                if there is already a way to give the player a 'Game Over' tell me to do it.
                                thank you

                                  I thought there is actually a setting called Game Over, within the event, I'm not sure if it works... But if that fails, you could always use the second part of the event (the losing part), to show a game over picture then use, return to title... Other than these, I can't see the answer.

                                    Yeah, a Game Over function really wouldn't be too hard to recreate yourself, and it's pretty game-specific so it's not like to make it into an 'Essential' kit.


                                    Other suggestion: Can a Debug option be added to change information on the player? I suppose that would just be the name and gender...
                                    In lack of a save-file converter for the time being, I offered to re-make the save files of my players who have to start over due to save-type updates or other glitches, but I realized I can't practically do this without being able to change the Player info (running the original name command again for some reason deactivates any use of the pokedex, even if the variable is set to true again). It could also be useful for other testing purposes though.

                                      The player's gender depends on their trainer type, so couldn't be changed separately. However, those debug options will probably get into Essentials at some point.

                                      I did offer to advise on how you could create a save converter, if you remember. There's a way to do it automatically without having to recreate anything from scratch. PM me if you want help.

                                        When you slide on ice, the camera is always offsetted when you stop sliding. It is a rather jarring effect

                                          That's not a suggestion, that's a bug. It's a known bug at that, so it doesn't need mentioning.

                                              You mean, being able to call Prof. Oak and he'll say something based on how many species you've seen/caught? You can already do exactly that in Essentials.

                                                  $Trainer.pokedexOwned and $Trainer.pokedexSeen is what you will need for that.
