    You deserve to be a Nobel Peace Prize winner for the next 5 years. They should also create a new award just for this category: Nobel Prize for World Happiness. It works perfectly even in version 1.3.2

    The mod does not work on Yuzo, version 1.3.0 of the game. And we know that when using Yuzo the best version is 1.3.0 due to the difficulty of finding mods for version 1.3.1.

    Electabuzz/Electivire and Magmar/Magmortar are counterparts, so they should evolve at the same level, be it 42 or 45 (preferably 42)

    Hey, i  tried using this mod on Ryu and i installed it as you have written, extract the "Evolve`s" folders content into the mods folder of the game, but sadly my Pumpkaboo did not evolve on lvl 16, i also dont know how to check any otherway how to see if its working properly or not. I am on Ryu version 9.2.0 with Pkm Sw v 1.3.1+ dlcs.

    i would appreciate if you could give me a hint how to fix it or check if its working properly.
