Voltseon's Handy Tools

v20.1 Voltseon's Handy Tools 1.0

This resource pertains to version 20.1 of Pokémon Essentials.
Pokémon Essentials Version
v20 ➖
Short description
Basically this script allows you to manipulate Pokémon/Items, Start Battles, Set Self Switches and Play Pokémon cries using more memorable methods that are targeted to people who don't want to have to look up the longer versions. It also adds a couple handy utilities like vTGS(switchid) which toggles a Game Switch between true and false.

How do I implement this script?
  1. Download the plugin below
  2. Put the Voltseon's Handy Tools folder inside your game's Plugins directory
  3. Make sure that your plugin scripts are compiled when you open the game (The console should say "Voltseon's Handy Tools")
  4. And you're done!
  1. Select the script (in the spoiler below) and copy all of it (Ctrl+C)
  2. Go to the scipt section in Pokémon Essentials and scroll down until you see the "Main" script.
  3. Right click above the main scipt and click insert. You'll see a new script has been created.
  4. Inside that new script you paste the script you previously copied (Ctrl+V)
  5. Click "Ok" at the bottom and hit "Save". Now Voltseon's Handy Tools has been installed
