    Hi guys
    Actually I am in big trouble. I accidentally messed up something in essentials and now neither the game nor the playtest is working

    This is what I see
    When I open the Game
    Essentials CRASHING Please Help

    When play testing
    Essentials CRASHING Please Help

    I tried to add an Alolan pokemon by debug and thats when this happened
    I thinks I messed up something in PBS or with the Graphics

    I tried using a fresh Essentials and this is repeating for the new one also which I hadn't even touched
    Please help guys I don't know what to do

    The issue is cause because you have a saved file that contains Pokemon that don't have a sprite.

    A good practice is renaming your projects when you start a new one, else a clean project will now get stuck with a save file that crashes on load.

    You can delete your saved file by going to the Saved Games folder on your computer.

    Windows 10 has it kept here: C:\Users\Vendily-PC\Saved Games
    Windows 7, it's a folder deeper, in Documents\Saved Games

    Find the folder titled Pokemon Essentials, as that's the Project's title in the window bar, and delete Game.rxdata.

    EDIT: Oh, and you'll need sprites for the new pokemon too. They can be dummy or placeholder sprites, you just need something.
