Answer from the OP- yes, it is the same trainer. We can assume things like poke-bank or it could be some new region with every Pokemon, it doesn't matter. They all ended up in the same place, same box. I would post on the thread but I wanna confirm everyone and I can't di that from my phone, so yes. Same trainer, same box.
I guess. I was just thinking what would be best for the battle. Actually I think I was baton passing hoping that you'd use king's sheild and waste a turn because believe it would have worked unlike if I switched out. Still go first via Grace (the sylveon), but you waste your "protect"
And is that team also unaltered/unhacked with no hacked use hold items and tm/hms? Excluding things like clones, altered to be shiny (mine are legit I just don't mind if others have shinied their 'mons; just lessens their specialness), and altered name/ball.
