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.
