Learning a particular move upon evolution

Learning a particular move upon evolution

Pokémon Essentials Version
v16.2 ➖
THIS FEATURE IS NOW NATIVE TO POKéMON ESSENTIALS AS OF VERSION 17.

What's this?
In Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, a certain mechanic was introduced for the first time: Upon evolution, certain (and most) species will always learn a special move. For example, no matter at what level does your Alolan Pikachu evolve, Alolan Raichu will always attempt to learn Psychic.

Design notes
This is particularly useful for Pokémon that gain a type after evolving, as they might not have an appropriate STAB to use afterwards. For example, in Generation 6, Vaporeon would only learn Water Gun at Level 9. That means, if your Eevee is Level 10 or above, it might lack a Water-type move until Level 17.

Another example lies in Charizard, which traditionally learns Wing Attack at Level 36 but since Sun and Moon, it will always learn it upon evolving, instead of at a fixed level, which ensures it has a Flying-type move at all times.

Be creative! You can also view a list of all "Evolution Moves" here: Link

Installation
Open your Script Editor, and go to the section called Pokemon_Evolution.
Jump to around line 834. It should say "for i in movelist". Below this line, at the next three:
Code:
if i[0]==0  # Evolution move
  pbLearnMove(@pokemon,i[1],true) { pbUpdate }
end

Now go to your pokemon.txt PBS file.
In order to add an "evolution move", add a move to a Pokémon's moveset, to be learnt at Level 0. If you don't know how to add a move, please refer to this Pokémon Essentials wiki article.

Continuing the previous example, in order to make sure Vaporeon learnt Water Gun after evolving, it would look something like this:
Code:
Moves=0,WATERGUN,1,HELPINGHAND,1,TACKLE,1,TAILWHIP,5,(...)
