How about animations for failed moves?

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.

Not really. Consider this: The text would still be there, so why not have the Pokemon actually doing something? Not to mention that attack animations occur at the same time as the damage meter going down in this gen.

Also, see the video below: In order to miss, there must be an evasion animation, else the attacking Pokemon would not do anything at all.

Two Genwunners would like to battle!
The Genwunners sent out Alakazam and Tauros!
Go! Slowbro and Slowking!
Tauros used Hyper Beam!
Slowking fainted!
Alakazam used Amnesia!
Alakazam's Special Defense was doubled!
Slowbro used Calm Mind!
Slowbro's Special Attack and Special Defense rose!
Tauros used Hyper Beam!
Me: OH NO!
Tauros missed!
Alakazam used Hyper Beam!
A critical hit! It did 80 points of damage!
Slowbro used Calm Mind!
Slowbro's Special Attack and Special Defense rose!
Tauros used Fissure!
Tauros missed!
Alakazam must recharge!
Slowbro used Surf!
Both Alakazam and Tauros fainted!

i always thought it would be cool if attack animations still played if the move misses


The original trailer for PBR showed Hyper Beam missing and setting the arena on fire, which was amazing, but they removed it.
