Battle System Reveals

Catch Wild Pokemon Without Battling

It is revealed that there are different strategies in catching Pokemon: some Pokemon may attack you or others may run away. You'll need to be able to adapt your approach in catching them such as with sneaking or going all out.

Seamless Battle Entry

The game promises a seamless transition from wild area exploration to battle with the wild Pokemon. Simply throw a PokeBall containing one of your Pokemon near a wild Pokemon, and it will trigger a seamless transition into battle.

Is Battle Turn-Based?

The battle is still turn-based, but it is unclear how this plays out. There are two new features in battle: moves are either Agile Style and Strong Style.

Strong and Agile Style

Agile Style

The Agile Style raises the user's action speed, which makes moves come sooner but lower's the move's power

Strong Style

The Strong Style increases the move's power, but lower's the user's action speed.

So far, the Agile Style is good when the battle is going to last for a while, while the Strong Style is good as finishing moves.

It is still yet to be determined how this plays out in relation to the traditional turn-based games of Pokemon.
