I can understand it from the standpoint it's just one battle in a mini-series vs the main series' hundreds (thousands?) of battles. I mean, if you did calcs for Ash's battles, Pikachu would lose practically every time he's ever taken a hit.
If it was based off FR/LG, the calc would be a little more in Giovanni's favor. Without Volt Absorb, Jolteon could be up to level 15(!) with 0 IVs in HP and Sp Def, lol.
Edit: Level 16 with a -Sp Def nature, 17 if Rhyhorn is +Sp Atk! Okay, I'm done.
My apologies for the joke calcs @Ghost...
Hear me out. I believe Red's team outside of Charizard is supposed to be underleveled. Now, Jolteon has to be severely underleveled, but crit Thunderbolt from level 45 Rhyhorn (its level in RGB) with a perfect Special DV guarantee OHKO's a Jolteon with a 0 Special DV up to level... 13.
