Front row and back row?

Back row or pokes that keep their distance take less damage from short ranged attacks. Include ranged attributes to attack types obviously.

Front row Mon set to fight up close do more damage and have a chance to do crits.

What would this achieve?

Aside from adding some more creative customisation options to teams it would allow GF to tinker with move variations. Long/short range could affect many things, accuracy, power, recovery time?!

Just a random idea, what do you guys think? Is there problems or benefits I may not have considered.

It's fine as it is. Your idea would require usage of multiple pokemon at a time to be worth something and if colosseum is anything to go by that's really not such a good idea.

Don't fix something that's not broken.

The system is there in Final Fantasy series.
It's balanced, but I don't think it is necessary in pokemon.
There would be too many changes to moves to make.

But then complain for a series becoming stale and lazy?! Not sure why you would think it would require multiple pokemon?

I agree, this is probably the real issue. It could be very tricky trying to balance such a wealth of moves. However it could also help diversify the plethora of samey moves. But yeah could be a lot of work for a relatively minor change.

So a new battle mode? So essentially contact moves vs. non contact moves?
