Formations are similar to unite attack but instead of dealing with two or three characters they deal with the entire party. Each formation does something like adding +5 to everybodies attack or +10 to physical and magical defense. Also each formation has a form skill, a special ability that only that formation can do. However you can only use one form skill for every battle, and that can only be used once so choose wisely.

You start out the game with only one formation, the standard form but as the game progresses you obtain more and more formations. Like a unite attack however if any one becomes unfriendly you will not be able to change your formation.

Some formations can only be done with a certain number of characters, like Quad Lightning, but most can be done with any number of characters. Finally the more characters you have and the stronger they are the stronger you form skill will be.
