Heck, it’d suit them more considering that the series has actual precedence of them being given rental Pokémon. Remember the time Delibird accidentally delivered powerful Pokémon to TRio that were meant for Cassidy and Biff?Oh, I wish. There's plenty I'd like to do with this soul-sucking machine. At this point I'm near convinced that Giovanni, after seeing the utter state of the TRio in Alola, deliberately gifted them that thing in hopes that relying on rentals and thus removing the bonding aspect of Pokémon battles will make them slip towards the "uncaring criminal" role he desires in Rocket members.
Now that I think about it, this Prize Master style suits Cassidy and Butch rather more than Jessie and James. Those two never did seem like they had actual emotional connections with their own Pokémon anyway. Compare Cassidy and Raticate to Jessie and Arbok, or Butch and Primeape to James and Weezing.
