Gym Battle Queued Moves
A Redditor discovered this new function where the next command is queued during gym battle. If you tap during an attack, the fast attack is queued and your Pokémon will perform the next attack once the Pokémon ends its current attack.
We have tested and found this to be true. The queued moves will enable you to attack quicker in succession compared to previously. But sometimes, your Pokémon will perform an attack even if that’s not what you wanted it to do. However, only one action will be queued, and will be able to overwrite, like when you accidentally tapped twice and immediately swiping left or right to dodge. The Pokémon will still dodge right after the first attack.
Gym battle feels more responsive now, either because of the queued move or the combat code got revamped. As battle is the core of multiplayer gameplay, Niantic took the right decision to streamline it before the Trainer Battle update.
