Hello again, I have an error when starting up my game. I've been editing Pokemon abilities so that all Pokemon have all access to every ability, including Hidden Abilities, and have run into this error:

---------------------------
Pokemon White Wings

[Pokémon Essentials version 18.1]

Exception: RuntimeError

Message: Required entry Happiness is missing or empty in section 10 (PBS/pokemon.txt)

Now I haven't touched the Happiness of any Pokemon, that I know of, and I've checked and double checked everyone I've edited so far (I'm only up to Horsea because. Wow, we have so many Pokemon haha) and no one is missing anything that I know of. Is this just because I'm giving every Pokemon access to three Abilities, or am I missing something else? Thank you in advance!

It's definitely that your tenth Pokemon is missing the Happiness field! (I was able to recreate this exact error in a default Essentials kit by removing that, so I'm positive that's the issue) It's just easy for things to get lost in all the lines of PBS, haha.

Yeah, you're right. I just checked it and for some reason everything below Caterpie's gender rate is just. Gone? And all the changes I had made got reverted back so I know it's not something that I did, because I was saving religiously and the last Pokemon I had at that point was Melmetal.

Thank you!
