Yup, the pokemon Kick returns with Pokemon stadium. Of course without imported pokemon we have to use nothing but rentals who are....not bad so much as weird? See they all know a pretty decent moveset, save for the poor guys who have to deal with having growl or leer, but they have this weird balance mechanics.
It looks like less evolved pokemon in general have stronger moves, I guess to make up for having lower stats? mena while fully evolved pokemon have just kind of crap moves I guess because their stats are just way higher. either way it makes this a bit of a hassle as we try to fight our way up gym leader castle.
