<Before Eval>
// Skill can only be used by actors.
if (user.isActor()) {
// Create a pool for allowed skills to be stolen.
var allowed = [];
// Add the ID's of all the skill types that can be stolen.
allowed.push(16, 17, 18, 19);
allowed.push(20, 21, 22, 23);
allowed.push(24, 25);
// Get the target's skills.
var skills = target.skills();
// Loop through each of the target's skills.
for (var i = 0; i < skills.length; ++i) {
  // Get the currently looped skill.
  var skill = skills[i];
  // If the skill exists, the skill's type is within the allowed pool, and and the user hasn't learned the skill...
  if (skill && allowed.contains(skill.stypeId) && !user.isLearnedSkill( {
    // ...then teach the user the skill.
    // Create the text to display.
    var text = '<CENTER>' + + ' has learned \\i[' + skill.iconIndex + ']' + + ' from ' + + '!';
    // Set the frames to wait to 90.
    var wait = 90;
    // Add the text to the Battle Manager.
    BattleManager.addText(text, wait);
    // Play an animation on the the user.
    // Break the loop.
// close actor check.
