you could make every skill do an "if" check to see if would do damage or not.
MV formulas dont have a limit on the size so easy to do. (unlike VX which has a limit to formula size)
formulaA > 1 ? formulaA : 1

I'll be honest with you, I don't know how to implement that, if you could give me an example, I'd appreciate it,

+1 at the end of the damage formula

value = Math.floor(ArcanePotencial) +1;

do you think that's okay?

Don't know, i won't be that complicated
I just changed the damage formula to (a.atk * 4-b.def * 2) + 1
This format

All of these will work but only if you want the minimum damage to be 1 before things like elemental weaknesses/resistances, physical/magical damage rates, critical hit multipliers, etc. are applied.

If you want it applied afterwards, you'd need a plugin or at least a little "scriptlet". You'd probably want to apply it after damage is calculated but right before damage is actually applied to a battler's HP.

1 note for all of these suggestions (including my own) and only realize this after reading wave's comment.
these will completely negate any kind of damage changed into healing.
like when using <absorb element: fire> from plugins

edit: almost all
+1 at the end of the damage formula
this 1 would still work with absorb element plugins

Alright guys, I already found a solution using '' if '' as suggested by @Tiamat-86 and it worked.
This was my solution
var ArcanePotencial = ( user._criticalCount * 0.5) * ( user.mat * 3) - ( target.mdf * 2); if (ArcanePotencial < 1){ var ArcanePotencial = 1; } "

I'm not very knowledgeable about Js, mine was always the visual part of the games and this is the first time that I am making a game by myself, so I appreciate all your opinions and advice.

This video really speaks to me...

Stream will be live shortly with a session of the interactive text adenture! Feel free to drop by!
I worked a lot more today and I am thinking about Youtube videos to make to my channel, but I am still looking for some content :D

But I am happy to be back at work :D
Update... no scam calls all day. I think they learned their lesson. And I'm working on a fake anti-piracy video, featuring a fan game I'm making in MV. If I had the permission to make the game a licensed game that I could sell (rather than having it totally free like fan games are required to be), I'd use a really cool anti-piracy screen...
