I don't absolutely remember, but it seems to me that if you battle trainers in the new world, they have a slightly smarter AI, at least when it comes to switching pokemon after one faints. More than once, the new world trainers will specifically pick (after their starter faints) their pokemon that is most resistive (by type) to your own. However, in the old world, this did not seem to happen and it seemed to use the old AI engine using the order of the pokemon from first (right-most) to last (left-most) of the mini-pokeballs that are shown when switching pokemon after one faints.

I don't think that the programmers changed that in G\S. But the pokes the leaders use are all powered up.

Fighting a Hitmonchan, the silly thing nailed the weakspot of whatever came out (type grass yielded fire or ice punches. Gyrados was met with thunder punch. Gengar mostly saw ice).

The AI is *definitely* improved. They don't simply randomly pick a move and hope it works ("I'm Agatha, and I'm pretty sure this monster is feeling tired... just in case it dozes off suddenly, I'll have my Gengar use Dream Eater three times in a row).

They don't just pick in order, I think... At least, I didn't notice them picking in order.

Haven't seen new world yet.

Anyone have definitive facts here?

The elite 4 seem to pick what move based on what Pokémon you have out and what type the move is.... They don't take into constideration what the move does otherwise.... So against a poison guy Agatha might use Dream Eater thrice..... Or hypnosis.... But in the first bit of the game the trainers just pick a random move....

And yes the Trainers choose the Pokémon based on what Pokémon you have out.... I've only played the game on shift mode but most likley they play on the same mode as you....
