Hi guys ive been working on this mini pokedex program. unfortunately im having a little problem. Im so sleepy right now and I think i need help.

/* Program Description: a mini pokedex */




import java.util.Scanner;
public class Pokedex {
	
		public static void printOptions () {
		System.out.println(" POKEDEX ver 1.0 \n \n1. Add Pokemon \n2. Delete Pokemon\n3. View Stored Pokemon\n4. Edit Pokemon\n5. Battle  \n6. Exit \n");
	}
	
	
	
	
	
	public static void main (String args[]){
		Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
		Pokemon Pokedex[] = new Pokemon[100];
		int ans = 0;
		int numOfEntries = 0;
		String Name;
		int Health;
		int Damage;
		String NameToDelete;
		String NameToUpdate;
		int i = 0;
		String PokemonA;
		String PokemonB;
		int a = 0;
		int b = 0; 
		
		
		
		
	do {
		printOptions();
		ans = Integer.parseInt (sc.nextLine());
		if (ans == 1) {
			for (i=0; i < Pokedex.length; i++) {
				if (Pokedex[i] == null) {
			System.out.println("Pokemon Name: ");
			Name  = sc.nextLine();
			System.out.println("Pokemon Health: ");
			Health = Integer.parseInt(sc.nextLine());
			System.out.println("Pokemon Damage: ");
			Damage = Integer.parseInt(sc.nextLine());		
			Pokedex[i] = new Pokemon (Name, Health, Damage) ;
			break;
					}
				}
			}
		else if (ans == 2) {
			System.out.println("Delete Pokemon: ");
			NameToDelete = sc.nextLine();
			for (i=0; i < Pokedex.length; i++) {
				if (Pokedex[i] != null) {
						if (Pokedex[i].getName().equals(NameToDelete)){
						Pokedex[i] = null;
						numOfEntries --;
						}
					}
				}
			}
		else if (ans == 3) {
			for (i=0; i<100; i++) {
				if (Pokedex[i] !=null) {
					System.out.println(Pokedex[i].getName() + "\n" + Pokedex[i].getHealth() + "\n" + Pokedex[i].getHealth() + "\n");
						}
					}
				}
		else if (ans ==4) {
				System.out.println("Edit Pokemon: ");
				NameToUpdate = sc.nextLine();
				for (i=0; i < Pokedex.length; i++) {
					if (Pokedex[i] !=null) {
						if (Pokedex[i].getName().equals(NameToUpdate))
						{
						System.out.println("New Name: ");
						Name = sc.nextLine();
						System.out.println("New Health: ");
						Health = Integer.parseInt(sc.nextLine());
						System.out.println("New Damage: ");
						Damage = Integer.parseInt(sc.nextLine());
						Pokedex[i].setName(Name);
						Pokedex[i].setHealth(Health);
						Pokedex[i].setDamage(Damage);
						
										}	
									}
								}
							}
		else if (ans ==5 ){ 
						
						
						System.out.println("1st Pokemon to battle: ");
						PokemonA = sc.nextLine();
						System.out.println("2nd Pokemon to battle: ");
						PokemonB = sc.nextLine();
						
						
		
						for (i=0; i < Pokedex.length; i++) {
						if (Pokedex[i] !=null) {
						if (Pokedex[i].getName().equals(PokemonA))
						{
								Pokedex[a] = Pokedex[i];
								
								
										}	
									}
								}
								
								
						for (i=0; i < Pokedex.length; i++) {
						if (Pokedex[i] !=null) {
						if (Pokedex[i].getName().equals(PokemonB))
						{
								Pokedex[b] = Pokedex[i];
								
										}	
									}
								}
	
						Pokedex[a].attack(Pokedex[b]);
						
		
		}
			} while (ans != 6);
	}

}

basically my problem is that when I call a battle between two pokemons what happens is that it just attacks himself.

the problem starts on the loop on switch case statement no 5. thanks in advance

Well, to me the posted code look about right, I need more code, especially the attack() method, to see what goed wrong.

Also:

Pokedex[a] = Pokedex[i];
Pokedex[b] = Pokedex[i];

You are putting the two pokemons in the beginning of the list? There might be pokemons there, that you overwrite.
