Deck Commands are really the heart of your battles. These are the commands you will be able to equip in your Command Menu, and use in battle.
The Command Menu is borken down into three categories: Command, Movement, and Shotlock.
Commands hold the bulk of your Deck Commands and is comprised of your Attack, Magic, Friendship, and Item Commands. These commands are blue in color, and will be the commands you can shuffle through in battles or on the map.
Movement is actually broken down into three Sub-Categories: Action, Movement, and Reprisals. This is your red commands, and are used to improve movement, upgrade it, or provide counter-attacks.
Shotlocks are your attack that is performed by holding the R & L Triggers, while locked onto an enemy. These special attacks are green in color, and provide a wide aray of different moves. This is the only command that utilizes a gauge (Focus Gauge) in order to be used.
Each command has a level max. Gaining a new level will increase its potency when used, either damage or other. The levels are increased by gaining Command Points (CP) by defeating enenmies, or by playing the Command Board game.
