I use timed fighting and as such it rather difficult to read the flavor text to know what I'm actually fighting. If the text was shown (or there was a button to show) after the fight was over it would be much appreciated.

Is this a good idea? Is there any chance of this happening? Thanks! Mr. Green

I think this would be a very good idea -- at least when you've won the fight and therefore have leisure to take a breath and think. The link could be named something like, "Wait, WHAT just happened?"

It certainly ought to be technically possible. Shouldn't have a noticeable impact on performance because people wouldn't be clicking it after every fight, only when they wanted to pause and do some reading. (And, come to think of it, what small impact there was on server load ought to be positive, since the time taken to read a description would be time not spent slamming through fights.)

It would be particularly nice to have when new monsters were introduced and you wanted to rate them with proper consideration, rather than based on a half-glimpsed description that flashed by you too fast.

"Oh, hey, was that a new monster? Huh. I'll have to make sure to stop and read it next time it shows up."
"Clicked carefully through about ten fights so far, it still hasn't shown up. Getting a little impatient, so I'll go a little faster. I'll just make sure to watch the screen like a hawk for the new monster so I can stop when it shows up."
"Oh, there it i- FUCK"
"I'll just watch more carefully for it next time."

And repeat.

I thought you started it for the groupies and tax benefits!

... I really need to work on my Sense Motive skill.
The extra joke is that "Sense Motive" wouldn't actually tell me why she started the list, so my thinking that it would proves I'm extra incompetent at it. Or something.
