I've been thinking about double battles, and how it's nice to have techniques where the user supports a fellow tuxemon.
The problem is that if most battles aren't double battles, you've just spent a precious technique slot on a technique that isn't usable most of the time.
So I thought that these could be a special class of technique, Support Techniques, that could be used even when the tuxemon is not in battle. The process would be like selecting a tuxemon to switch in, but instead of selecting "Switch" you'd select the name of the support technique, which would be used in place of the active tuxemon's technique.
* Healing Hands: The user and the active tuxemon heal* Spotter: The active tuxemon's next attack is guaranteed to hit
