#209314 Currently the animation for evolving or mega evolving a Pokemon takes 10 seconds to fully complete. While this isn't much, if you need to do it repeatedly, it adds up.

For instance, if you want to Trace Pokemon while catching them with a Mega Alakazam, each time you try to mega evolve it, it'll take about 10 second to complete. Similarly, for world bosses, you need to wait for the mega evolution to finish before you attack, which significantly slows you down.

Ideally, there would be a setting you could enable/disable that caused the in-battle evolution to take as little time as the form change for Groudon, Kyogre, Zacian, or Zamazenta. Perhaps include the bang so that it doesn't surprise the opponent, or add a confirmation to auto-complete the evolution for all players in the battle.

This would also be a workaround for, where if the Pokemon faints during evolution, it breaks the evolution. This would greatly reduce the time required for the evolution, so there's less time for the Pokemon to faint.

#209337 Gen 6 & 7 all had a shorter version of the mega evolve animation that played after you'd already done it once too, this is definitely a good QOL change and fits the game, even just speeding up the same animation would be great
