Is it possible or I'll need a plugin for that?
I've also heard u can do something similar using default MZ features, but I'm not sure how to do it :(

The best way to do it without plugin is to add hidden enemies to your troop, and make them appear during the battle with the 'Enemy appear' command.

If you want something more powerful, you have this one on MV: https://himeworks.com/2015/11/enemy-reinforcements-mv/

Be wary that RPG maker isn't made to handle more than 8 enemies, especially if they are animated. Adding too much new enemies may cause big slow down.

after you add an enemy, you right-click its picture and select "appear halfway".
That enemy will now be ghosted in the editor and not appear at battlestart.

this enemy will appear when the command is given - and thatdepends on how you structure your combat.

Been playing through Skies of Arcadia again, and it really makes me wanna see someone try to implement how ship battles were done in the game into RPG Maker (or really just in general).

split view of both versions of the pocket city you traverse through. there's differences like areas only being accessible in one version of Autumn Bay. or events that only happen in one or the other.
theortically if there were a developer who spied on people's game playthroughs and changed things in real time to make it harder for them, what might be said game developer's motivation?
Hi everyone! Enjoying this nice long weekend. How are you all doing? :)
I just successfully tested having events check if specific actors are in a particular party slot and then changing image to match. This will let me make scenes take into account who is in the party at the time and arrange them accordingly - this is important since I'll have extra actors beyond current party. The script used is the same from MV and is compatible with my current core plugin setup in MZ. Thank goodness.
