I’d like to see a way to play head to head with another opponent, with both of us controling our respective teams. I know this can lead to abuse, so maybe if this was just a casual, fof fun mode without any rewards.
Think of how long the spinner can be while you enter the PvP or Mail menu, or when the battle first starts, or when you are waiting for your results after it completes. Now imagine that spinner after every move you make and every move your opponent makes.
We’re a long way from where we’d need to be, infrastructure-wise, to support online battles.
