What R Inanimate meant is that the attack animations don't take away from the 1 minute turn timer (although it does from the 15 minute match timer) and that time is often used to think about what your next move should be. Your criticism is more about Pokemon Online in general and isn't related to this update, although I know the PO guys are working on some attack animations to be more like Pokemon Showdown.You know, actually he's got an important point. I don't at all want to downplay the work that you put into this, but paying attention to the animations in normal "cart-based" gameplay is extremely important, and really is the only reason that I don't play much PO at all. The way that PO spits out the information is so foreign and unusual and hard to keep track of. Its not at all like playing on a cart.
