Basically the only way I'd be interested in this game is if it had good online play.

Is there an online mode that randomly matches you against other opponents? No friend codes or other BS necessary?
Is there a ranked matchmaking system as well?

Yeah there's ranked matchmaking.

The online in other areas is quite lacking but for ranked it's fine.

Yup, there is a VS feature. I believe you can do ranked or unranked. You can set a code to battle someone specific, or just search for a random opponent. Note that you need Switch Online to do this.

Also worth noting that the time limit for casual is pretty bad, apparently? I only play ranked so I can't give you the details tho.

Other than ranked battles, the online system is a complete joke and they should be embarrassed.
