Well, generally if you get "The species number (no. 0 of 649) is invalid" or any other error that says (no. 0 out of X), it either means a script has messed with the numbers passed to the initialize method, or you are missing the constant. When a constant is missing or you try to use an invalid symbol, Essentials returns 0, which as you can see, doesn't play nice when 0 isn't a valid option.

Double check the spelling. Cyndaquil is spelt with one L, a fact I was not aware of until just now.
