PvP is synchronous, meaning that it is close to real time (give or take a second, depending on latency and the speed of your internet connection). Early in development, we considered making the battle system asynchronous, but ultimately chose a synchronous system.

We are currently working on a way for players to communicate with each other during PvP and Duel battles (without distracting from the actual battle). We don't want battles to turn into chat rooms! :)

Duels are basically built on the same system as PvP. We've found in testing that dueling a friend in person is a lot of fun, so we're trying to replicate that experience with some sort of chat or communication system while battling.
