Oh I like this. That's a good thought - while I don't think it would make raids much more challenging, it would be more interesting, for sure, and probably more effective at improving the partners than simply buffing their AI.I think max raids would have worked vastly better if instead of NPCs you used four of your own Pokémon. They'd need to give high star raid bosses a few more tricks or better stats, but that would be interesting gameplay; there would be strategizing and bringing Pokémon with support moves like Reflect and Light Screen.
(Now that I think about it, it would also give the Move Deleter a bit more use - say you wanted to have one of your Pokémon designated specifically for setting up screens, you could delete their other two moves and just run Reflect and Light Screen in order to ensure that they would provide reliable setup. You'd give up the option of having them contribute offensively, but the more moves you give them, the less likely they are to do a specific thing that you may need them to, so there's a good trade-off.)
