    Sorry if i'm a hassle, any help is appreciated. Thanks(:
    You get that problem because you are supposed to go through the intro. The game isn't just ready to start on any old map, because you have you run a certain set of scripts to define a player character before your game game can start. If you don't, the $trainer variable wont be initialized and you'll get problems like that. pbTrainerName is the command that prepares a player if I'm not mistaken.

      I want to report the error with Shadow Pokemon.

      When a Shadow Pokemon battles with another non-shadow Pokemon, when opponent uses moves such as Growl , Scratch, Razor Leaf,... , the Shadow color suddenly fades! And when the battle finishes, the Shadow color returns! What is happening here and please tell me how to fix this?

      PS: I know this is not the topic to ask but what is the script for a battle between our Pokemon and a wild Shadow Pokemon?

      Thanks :D

        What's happening is that Shadow Pokémon are very annoying. I'm half-tempted to just demand that Shadow sprites/icons exist for all Shadow Pokémon, rather than faffing around with colouring the regular ones purple in the many places they currently don't (which is a very ugly process).

        There is no script to battle a wild Shadow Pokémon. If it's an event encounter, then you can generate the Pokémon beforehand and make it a Shadow Pokémon (similar to making a shiny Gyarados). Having a genuinely random encounter with a Shadow Pokémon is a whole other bag of tricks.

          And a somewhat pointless bag I'd say. The only reason for Shadow Pokémon existing is to allow them to be stolen from trainers. By premise, that's what a Shadow Pokémon is supposed to be.

            That's the original premise, yes, but there's no real reason why there can't be wild Shadow Pokémon kicking around in someone's game, so long as they explain how they came about. It could be like Delta Pokémon from the TCG (an environmental factor), or just a "this is how my game works" handwave. Whether such a game would actually be good or not is a different matter.

                I encountered another error as well:


                Exception: NoMethodError

                Message: undefined method `length' for 47:Fixnum

                PBAnimation:406:in `pbConvertRPGAnimation'

                Compiler:4078:in `pbCompileAllData'

                Compiler:4174

                When PE finished compiling all data. And the next thing I realize, that almost all files named .dat in the Data folder had vanished! What is happening here and how to fix this? Thanks a lot!

                PS: It suddenly happens when I try to add new scripts into the script sector... I have deleted the added scripts, but nothing change...

                  Move tutor isn't working for me either. Here is the error.

                    The pokemon does not change to their alternate form when you use the debug mode in the party screen.

                      If you're talking about Arceus, Deerling/Sawsbuck, Genesect, Giratina or Shaymin, then that's not a bug. They have scripts which automatically determine their forms (getForm), which can't be overridden. The wiki says this, if you care to read it.

                              The code is
                              Code:
                              pbBattleChallenge.extra.pbPrepareRentals
                              It never worked to begin with, its a known issue though.

                                I got past the error everyone gets and found out the method used to determine the rentals
                                Code:
                                pbBattleFactoryPokemon
                                causes the game up hang up and it will emergency save

                                  def pbDrawTextPositions comments are wrong! The right is:
                                  Code:
                                  #  4 - Base color.
                                  #  5 - Shadow color.

                                    So I found out that in playtest as well as regular game play modes, I get this problem on my tileset:

                                    It's only certain tiles on the third layer, any idea why it happens?

                                      Shaymin form is wrong. You need to use Gracidea to activates the sky form rather than having it in bag.

                                      Are you using the Custom perspective? If you are, them is probably about tileset priority.

                                        That sums it up, I recommend making houses, and trees the highest possible tile set priority, or setting trees to a priority of 4, and make houses 5 (max).

                                          Do you use it on the Pokémon, or just use it like the Coin Case and all appropriate Shaymin will change? I presume you can use it on multiple Shaymin at once.

                                            Iron Fist seems to not work. As in, it stops punching moves from working altogether.

                                            To be sure it wasn't my game, I downloaded the newest version, added a Hitmonchan with Iron Fist to my team, used Sky Uppercut, and nothing happened. No damage, no miss, nothing.

                                                Will mistake be here?:
                                                Code:
                                                    if isConst?(attacker.ability,PBAbilities,:IRONFIST) &&
                                                       (thismove.flags&0x200)!=0 # flag j: Is punching move
                                                      basedmg=(basedmg*1.2).floor
                                                    end
                                                Yes. The red part should be an @ instead.

                                                  I'm not sure if this is a bug... I'm new to using Pokemon Essentials, but I find that in the Outdoor tileset, towards the bottom the buildings and other graphics get mushed together, making it impossible to get a full building. When I tried to use an un-broken building the only graphic that appeared was a single square with a dot of color and a white background.
                                                  If I'm doing something wrong could someone let me know, please? Thanks!

                                                    You use it on the Pokémon. I checked in a video. There is also a short gracidea animation.

                                                    It is a RPG Maker XP question. You need to use different layers (F5/F6/F7).
