you are not able to view the status condition of a pokemon, only through scrolling thru battle logs. http://i.imgur.com/E5k1wBj.png?1 additionally weather conditions as well Stealth Rocks show when hovering over the opponent's pokemon, but Spikes, and Toxic Spikes, Roots, etc do not. the level of Spikes would be important as well. when a pokemon is sent out, seeing whether it came from a pokeball, or a dreamball. this plays a huge role. for eg: if i see a zapdose sent out from a pokeball, or masterball, i would know its safe to use an electric attack, however if i see it come out of a dreamball, i know it has its dreamworld ability, and i should not. this is something you can see in game, and plays a huge role in vgc, and singles. suggest draw cannot occur if either party has selected an attack, even if they then cancel it, you have to wait till next turn. which can turn a draw into a loss =[ it would also be nice to see a blue annotation/text that the opponent has suggested draw.
