Duel Phase is the second phase of a battle. In Duel Phase, the player can only move in 2 dimensions. The main goal in Duel Phase is to deal as much damage as possible before a Phase Shift. Achieving the goal of Duel Phase is much easier thanks to Y attacks from switching from ranged attacks to weak attacks and switches X attacks switching from homing attacks to strong attacks. Stances are a mechanic available to the player exclusively in Duel Phase. Each fighters stance has different effects, for example, Gengar's low stance allows him to avoid some overhead and ranged attacks while his high stance allows him to avoid some melee and ranged attacks.
