Showdown to Essentials Converter

Showdown to Essentials Converter

Showdown to Essentials Converter is a open-source software that is made by me to help my friend convert the format Pokemon Showdown uses into the format Pokemon Essentials uses. This program tries its best to take the format from showdown and convert it into a format that Pokemon Essentials can use, along side some quality of life improvements.

While yes, Pokemon Essentials does have a built in editor, I find it to be clunky and slow. I built this because my friend wanted to help build teams for my fan game. I also use it just to make teams as it is just easier for me.

Feel free to use this program if you want to make your own Pokemon Teams!

Excellent work!Just a suggestion,if it is possible to make the program directly read the team text exported from pokemon showdown?
I plan on making it to add on to the current trainers.txt file.
A very useful tool that I plan to use to define my trainers! The only real problem I seem to have is the fact it's missing the definitions for the Defense IV/EV in the v18 side, otherwise this would be perfect. If possible, a QoL suggestion could be to include a config file that the program can read if we have custom Pokeballs setup (i.e. GS Ball, etc.)?
