Or you will learn to troll the forums until someone inadvertently teaches you even though you've been using the software since it came out. Speaking of a friend, of course... Totally not me... **Whistles innocently**It's very easy. Keep messing around with the software. You will eventually learn how to do it after several years
Alright. I'm going to issue you a fair warning first- the others on the thread joke about it, but they are right. Pokemon-styled games do not usually have a very successful fate in RPGMaker, especially without Pokemon Essentials. You need to be sure you can commit to a project like this.Well, both
Hmm, you helped a lot...A big thanksAlright. I'm going to issue you a fair warning first- the others on the thread joke about it, but they are right.

If it's just the battle-system in terms of move usage/limited PP, the basic states, only one or two party members on a field, that's all pretty possible with base editor, some eventing, and Yanfly plugins. Switching out enemies is also pretty easy (will require variables if trainers can switch a mon out before death), but switching out the player's mons will need a plugin and require eventing for certain switch conditions (via attacks, death, etc.) Menus could be possible with some plugins but you'll have to look around for ones you want.
The monster catching stuff is an entirely different beast. There are plugins that can be cobbled together for this effect, tutorial on possible plugin usage here, but I'm not sure about all the features they have and creating the system will still require a lot of eventing. You said you're a beginner, so you'll really have to go through eventing tutorials/a lot of trial and error if you want this system.
The battle HUD is actually a bit easier. Moghunter has a battle hud plugin. In which you can recreate the visuals you want (and turn off stuff like MP bar). The issue is that you'll need to find a way to give the enemy a HUD as well, which there could be plugins to help (like Yanfly Visual HP Gauges), but you'll have to look around.
For enemy and player sprites, enemy sprites can stay static, and you can use the sideview layout to make sprites, you'll just be changing where the actors show up on the screen. You may need Action Sequences to simulate better movement, but I wouldn't worry about that until you have your basics set up.
And at the end of all of this, there's no guarantee that all of these plugins will play nice with each other... Overall, best I can say is good luck. I'll link the plugins I mentioned below. Please be sure to watch the videos and understand how they work before installing them willy-nilly.
Yanfly Core Engine (Need this for Yanfly plugins)
Yanfly Battle Engine Core (Need this for most other Yanfly battle plugins, also to limit number of actors in a battle and change actor positioning)
Yanfly Enemy Levels
Yanfly Party System
Yanfly Actor Party Switch (For switching out)
Yanfly Skill Core (Need this for plugin below)
Yanfly Limited Skill Uses (For move PP)
Moghunter Battle HUD: In his Master file

I'm glad I could at least help in finding your direction.Hmm, you helped a lot...A big thanks
I was actually getting distracted to other type of games instead of that Pokemon - like thing, I thought of making a medieval-period set game which will be set in France, know what after your reply I thought to make the medieval one. I came up to this decision after knowing
That means that your big answer got waste...Actually NO, I am gonna use up a lot of these resources you mentioned and make an STANDING-OUT battle system
Meaning of this? are their development not successful
those games with that battle system are not popular
Again, thank you a lot!
