Mobile users usually have the option to turn off animations on their phone OS through developer settings.
And the game center Golden Slot also has a [Disable animations] option.

Taking inspiration from those, I was thinking it'd be nice to have the option to completely disable animations (and hence reduce the delay), probably a checkbox placed in the Misc Settings. A "Hurry Mode" or "Snappy Mode".

Note: Despite the example with which I began, this wouldn't be exclusively for mobile users. Laptops and desktops would be able to turn off animations too.

What it would affect:
-> Golden Slots (as a default option perhaps, given that we currently have to 'Disable animations' everytime we close the tab)
-> Resending Pokemon on Rumble Missions
-> Concentration Game (the cards flipping over)
-> Berry Garden stars collection
-> Battling *
-> Puzzle Pieces **

There are probably a couple more features that could be includes, but it'd only apply to features where the delay doesn't actually serve a gameplay purpose.

* This probably requires a bit of thought, as we currently don't have a way to know what actually happened during a move except for the health bar & the animations (critical hits, super/not very effective, etc).
** This is especially annoying for mobile users as they can't skip it due to the lack of a space bar. Related suggestion: Skip [puzzle] animation on mobile

Complete Support. This suggestion is mainly required where some browsers can't support animations for some users in Mobile. While, some support, the Berry Garden's Stars after watering the plant don't move to their correct place even after an hour or so. We need to refresh the page. I would be very satisfied if this feature gets added to the game.

Very much support!

I use the garden a lot and depending on which device I am on, the stars collection from watering the seeds lags me so badly that it can be ridiculous! There have been times in the past where I've had to refresh the page to make them go away so i can plant/water the next set of garden beds.
Please train with my shadow wartortle. He's so cute!

This would really help with the puzzle pieces on mobile! Full support!
