Today I had a dream that involved a game that was like Pokémon Mystery Dungeon except it was an overhead strategy game where I had maybe 10 Pokémon units scattered around the map. The rooms were a bit bigger than in PMD though with rather big unit sprites and tiles, and your units didn’t all have to be on the same room/screen, you could scroll over to other rooms.

I don’t remember any of my units except for two Marowaks and a Ditto, but I know that I discovered that while tapping on a Pokémon once would give you a menu to use any of its moves (or a generic attack too I think), you could also double-tap on them to let them use a random move.

I discovered that double-tapping on Ditto had some kinda strange results: it would send this beam of black gunk between it and the opponent, apparently as a shorthand for Ditto transforming and then using a bunch of moves. There was a boss that instead of being a Pokémon was a Gaboo from MF for some reason and I tried to make Ditto fight it this way, but as I was doing that the numbers that periodically popped up on the Pokémon to show their HP quickly got low for Ditto and I knew I’d made a mistake. The rest of my units just sort of rapidly vanished as Ditto’s HP were going down and I don’t even know how when they were definitely all there when I started and there weren’t any enemies around them, but somehow by having Ditto confront the boss I’d begun to lose the whole battle. I tried to have Ditto and the remaining one or two Pokémon retreat but then I woke up.
