How about animations for failed moves?

#1NeotheLightPosted 8/12/2013 3:50:15 PM
Have animations to show why it didn't work.

You have a Pokemon try to use Attract on a Genderless or Same Gender Pokemon.

1. Your Pokemon makes an uncomfortable face wondering why you are asking them to try this move.
2. The opponent Pokemon gives your Pokemon an odd look. "Really?"
3. An Oblivious Pokemon will just have a question mark over their head like they missed something.

Electric attacks hit a ground type and you see it surge through the ground showing it to be ineffective.

Normal and Fighting attacks have an animation of the Ghost Pokemon laughing as it fails.

They're most likely not going to get that involved.


But it would be cool if they did.

This. Just about every other JRPG does this, usually followed with a pow!-esque bubble with the word 'miss' in it.

I wouldn't mind how it is in Pokemon Stadium where you see the user use the move whether it hits or not. Makes for more suspense. Nowadays, you can know if an attack hits or not just by how long the "Pokemon used ____!" text hangs.
