I noticed that the new battle scenes are faster than all previous generations! This is great in my opinion because they have decreased the time each generation.

Obviously this could have some negative side effects, like sloppier animation. The animations could be more rushed, which makes them less pretty.

What do you think about the speed increase for battles?

I'm very happy that they made the battles go faster. In my opinion the animations don't look rushed at all, and it's cool to see the camera shift for certain attacks. In fact I was just playing Emerald and after not playing it for so long I had forgotten how slow it is, even when you turn off the animations.

For me faster is better !
With constant battles against trainers and wild Pokémon , it's good to get through them quickly :D

Yes, I am perpetually annoyed by battle pacing in the current games.
And from the gameplay vids I've seen, the battles look spectacular! The fully animated Pokemon and shifting camera angles give a new, really epic feel to the battling.

I don't think I've kept Gen 4 battle animations on for longer than 20min of game play. I ALWAYS TURN THEM OFF!

Faster is better.

If there's less time drag, then I'd be happy to partake. (b")b

Honestly, I always turn the animations off at the start of every game anyway.
The only games I didn't were my original Blue, and Heart Gold.

I'm also sorry to say that I really dislike the lame battle movements of the Pokemon.
It looks incredibly stupid. I will admit though, the full back sprite looks pretty good.

It's just the camera + pokemon's constant movement I don't like.
There better be an option to turn all that crap off.

you can turn the animations off!?

i actually like that it will become faster. the weather effects each turn are really annoying me right now, especially if it is a wild battle...

Faster Battles= More Gameplay

I was really amazed with the battle gameplay when I saw videos of them. I hate how slow the battles are in the previous gens, so this will be a great step forward.

Dang people chill. Whats with all the hate? I think it is cool to see all the little animatons. It kills the game to not have them on. You can identify new moves and what type they are easier with it on. Besides, I multitask alot, so the battlesceen is fine XD

i dont care about how fast or slow. i just wanted the battles to be like the anime. and my dreams have come true! The pokemon actually move and act like ther are causeing the move to happen and actually attacking rathe than some magic thing coming out of nowhere which has nothing to do with the pokemon. I AM SO HAPPY!! My parents have agreed that when it becomes avaliable in the uk for pre-order that they will order it

I do have to appreciate the added realism to the battle screen...although I've never had any complaints about the pacing of the action before, I do like the fast-paced epicness this one has. :P

I hope the battle pace is faster, because it doesn't effect the storyline's speed, so I would like this to happen, please make it happen, the Second Generation was the slowest one for me.
