So, First of all, my first post, yay me! Before anyone judges me, I'm not new to Essentials, I just don't know the answers to these questions, I've contributed to the community through someone else's ID, but we're baffled!
Is it possible to have 2vs1 battles, like being ambushed by 2 trainers, specifically "evil" trainers, team rocket, team magma, team mash potato... You get the idea with that...
By this I meant, the opponents send out 2 Pokémon you send out 1.
How would I go about making encounters, variable based, I.E.
And so on... Will this be located within the encounters script section and how would I go about the nests showing correctly?
1) I believe so. I'm pretty sure you can initiate one on the overworld by triggering two sightlines at once. In an event I would suspect there is a script for that. From a cursory glance over the wiki, I think you'll find what you're looking for here: http://pokemonessentials.wikia.com/wiki/Trainers
Thanks for the responses, and jim42, winterkirby is right, wild encounters, trainers are simple enough, and so are wild encounters, but I'm not entirely sure how to use different encounters depending on a variable... I know it's possible... But my theory is:
In encounters script, adding if statements before land, landday etc. and adding land1, landday2... And so on, but seems tedious, and messy.
As for the 2vs1, I don't think I wrote it right, it was late and I was tired, I wanted my questions asked before I went to sleep... What I mean is, 2 trainers, 1 hero, the 2 trainers each send out a Pokemon, hero sends out 1... I suppose, making a script edit to where the game would check for 2 available Pokemon and just make it check and send out 1 if a certain switch is on... But maybe now you guys have a better understanding.
