Pokémon Go Battles will be More about Swapping than tapping

Pokémon Go Battles will be More about Swapping than tapping

The interest of people in Pokémon Go significantly increased last year when they introduced PvP battle system. The battle system was loved by the people but still many felt that it was a bit monotonous as it required too much tapping.

You had to repeatedly tap the screen to make your Pokémon attack, while simultaneously building up its charge move with each tap. Once it’s time to unleash the charge, you tap a button on screen to fire off the move, then tap as fast as you can to make that move more powerful. You had to repeat that until the battle was over. It was just a stream of continuous tapping.

Niantic (the creator of Pokémon Go) has announced that they will be revamping the app. The core mechanics of the battle system will remain the same, but charge attacks will now be about accurate swiping like in Fruit Ninja. Once you’ve fired off your charge move, you’ll have to swipe your finger across a trail of icons falling across your screen. The more you collect before time runs out, the more powerful your attack will be.
