Yes but Physical/Special isn't a thing in the anime, attacks aren't divided like that here. They tend not to make any Pokemon a purely close-range or purely long-range fighter because that's boring. Movesets in the anime are about versatility and whatever looks cool
Swapping them out would be a massive waste, they need to be the ones used in the PWC finals. If Ash was just going to use his old Pokemon for the battles that matter, there'd be no point in giving him new ones in the first place.
Dracovish was also revived from a Fossil and fossil Pokemon have been shown to retain the memories of their past lives (in Dracovish's case, the memories of the Vish half at least), so it was likely just strong to begin with
