Pokémon Essentials is a game project made in RPG Maker XP that lets people make Pokémon-style games. It was created by Poccil, who based it on Flameguru's Pokémon Starter Kit. As of 10th July 2011, it is managed and updated by Maruno.
The second update release Pokémon Essentials v16.2 can now be downloaded from the Downloads page.
Essentials v16.2 contains a bunch of bug fixes, as well as some efficiency improvements in some scripts. It goes without saying that this is a highly recommended patch.
