Skill Battle is a new mode in Puyo Puyo Tetris 2.
Like standard Versus modes, a player can send attacks using line clears or chaining Puyos. In addition to garbage being sent, attacks decrease the opponent's HP. Topping out causes the player's HP to drop by 1/4, and their playfield is reset allowing play to continue. A player loses if their HP reaches 0, regardless of how high their field was, and the other player wins if this happens.
There are two types of skills, Auto Skills and Special Skills. Auto skills are automatically used at the start of the match. Skills can be combined by using them at or near the same time. Some skills have a cool down time before it can be used again.
Skills require MP to be used. Each skill has a different MP cost. It is displayed on the character card, along with the button to press to use said skill.
MP replenishes over time. Skills or item cards can help replenish it faster.
leveling characters, each character can equip up to 3 Special Skills. You can level up characters by playing Skill Battles in Adventure Mode. Skills gain levels too, and as the level goes higher, it will use less MP.
Cards can be obtained in Adventure Mode. They are used in Skill Battle to add effects such as HP Up, MP Up, Attack Up, Defense Up, and Recovery Up. Item cards can also have a unique skill. Up to 4 cards can be equipped on your team.
Higher level cards are indicated by their fancier borders.
