Pick-up Explains: Battle Member Types and Rows
And we haven't explained the new story mode mechanics too much, so here are some of them scattered throughout future 3DS3 Update features!

So instead of just slots in 3DS2, 3DS3 Mystery Adventure mode has you arrange up to 8 members into three rows: front, middle and back. That is not just a designation, as there are different effects just for putting members in different rows.

As seen from the PV above showing more significant battle footage, you should see that the back row members take less or even no damage, the front rows can take them up for you. In exchange, the attacks will be less accurate (= damage down) because they are also farther away. In that you might have to balance whether to have high HP member shield damage and make more fragile members stay longer, or to have them at the front for optimum output.

The six types of battle members also play into this three-row system like this:
  • Close-range: increased damage dealt when put in the front row (eg. Heracles)
  • Mid-range: reduced damage taken when put in the middle row (eg. Popokaka, Takkun)
  • Long-range: does not suffer reduced damage dealt like other members when put in the back row
  • Defense: undertakes some of the damage to members one row behind them, reducing their damage taken (eg. Tikkun)
  • Magical: row effects does not affect them (eg. Tia)
  • Recover: heals members one row in front of them
If you cannot decide for yourself what to use in this more intricate system, you can have Popokaka arrange the team for you. It is probably not going to suck more than you would have put yourself...?

As always though, members attacking depends on you getting good combo numbers compared to their speed, so if you cannot keep a combo running, even a great team can't help.
