I know EBS exists (and EBSDX is on the way soon), but let's just say you don't want your project to include it, and the only thing you really want from it are the animated trainers feature (for special trainers like rivals and gym leaders etc.), or just little Pokémon entrance animations from pre-gen 5 (so not fully animated throughout the battle). How possible would it be to include trainers or Pokémon being animated once through a spritesheet, and where exactly would I start with adding something like that?

I think they're asking if there is a way to take how EBS does it where there is a single, wide sprite sheet with multiple frames for each animation and put it into base essentials. But, I was actually wondering if this was possible as well, at least for the trainer part. I know in the Gen 4 games, trainers and gym leaders have a little animation they do when the battle starts, but the pokemon themselves aren't animated.

Best place to start would be EBS. And no not actually using it, but understanding how they do it and see if that can be converted.

Another way would be by looking at how the back sprite of the player is animated, when the Pokemon is sent out. That actually might be the easisiest place to start.

Maybe you're forgetting, but Pokémon had little entrance animations in gen 4, they just weren't fully animated until gen 5
2 Frame Animations and EBS Style Animations both are possible. I'm making a script for both of them.



I'm also gonna implement Trainer Animations too so don't worry.
Looks sick man, can't wait to see it
