do certain AI pokemon/trainers have differant intelligence

like wild pokemon seem to use moves at random while trainer pokemon use super effective moves almost every time. But AI trainers strategy also seems to vary eg. Red is way smarter than trainer joey.

Yes. The game has different levels of Artificial intelligence. Lower level trainers will be a bit more merciful, using moves like defense curl even though they have the opportunity to finish off your pokemon with 4 HP. stronger trainers like gym leaders, elite 4, or the champion won't be as merciful and will know the right time to use STAB moves, super effective moves, and sometimes even predict a super effective move and switch accordingly.
