    I have tried looking all around the Pokémon Essentials Wiki, and cannot find anything pertaining to my question. I have one region, although when I make a new Pokémon species I get the whole "pbSeenForm" undefined method error. I quickly presume this to be a problem because the player doesn't own a National Dex. I know how to add scripts, and script a little. I already added the default Pokédex, but I want to add the National Dex to make things much easier. Someone, please help me out.

      You presume wrong. The "pbSeenForm" error occurs because you haven't started a New Game. That problem's been answered often enough already.

      The wiki is very clear on how to use multiple Dex lists (even if it's just 1 Regional + 1 National). At least, I think it's clear.

        Yeah, I was able to figure that out last night after I had posted this. Tried a new game, and worked like it was supposed to. Then I saw other threads that had similar errors. As such, I deeply apologize for not checking harder.

        Thank you, however, for the link to the Dex description page. I still couldn't figure out how to do it. The Regional Dex was easy, but when I tried looking for National Dex is when it got a bit confusing.

        Thanks again.

          Searching for the phrase "National Dex" is a start.

          Basically, the National Dex is only usable if the Dexes don't depend on location, and it is unlocked by using pbUnlockDex.

            Fantastic. Worked like a charm. What I was aiming for was to make the National Dex be available for the whole region, as I want to make the region contain varieties of Pokémon. Thus, using a National Dex makes this task much easier. I am unorthodox in my ways, therefore, I want to change things up a little.

            All my problems have been solved, and I no longer need help on this topic.

            Thanks Maruno.

              I suggest you to make 'DEXDEPENDSONLOCATION = false' by default.

                It is.

                I can't imagine any time when someone would want it to be "true". It's how the system used to work before I improved it, so it's just a call-back to then rather than it actually being useful.

                  Yep, I checked the script. At script "Settings" line 123, it's already preset to that in fresh copies of Pokémon Essentials. I had to make sure because unlocking the National Dex requires that the prerequisite is DEXDEPENDSONLOCATION = false.
