Some days ago I got the party system done ! Chat, the party itself, party battles, etc.
This is great because it allows the game to be more social and also makes dungeons and arenas something possible (think about WoW)
We can now have the pleasure of playing in lengthy (3vs3) 36 pokes party battles, isn't that exciting ?
I know, I know, that sound a little absurd, but hey, it is just one of the many possibilities. With the arena system we can expect to have 3 pokes max in each team, so we can have faster ranked battles.
Here a few screenshots on the party HUD display:
Ps. The game is on low resolution in the screenshot because it’s a debug build.
