If it is because you battle one at a time, it won't really help because that is what you do in a single battle. Why is it called 1v1?

Even though you can make a ''team'' of three Pokemon, you only battle with the one you select.

So if you have Pokemon A, B and C, and you select Pokemon A, then Pokemon A will go into a 1v1 battle against whatever the opponent picked out of his/her three.
So basically, the system allows you to choose out of three Pokemon to make 1v1 a little more interesting as it requires some prediction and thought to which Pokemon is best suited to send out.

selected by
Ao if you send out A, you can't use B or C?
*So not Ao
Yes, if you pick one Pokemon, the others can't be used.
