What I mean by random is which one it calls, not what Pokemon out of all 807.

I assume your asking weather the Pokemon they call is chosen tactically or randomly...

SOS Battles with Totem Pokémon differ from regular SOS Battles in that their supply of allies may be limited, which allies they call is not influenced by the weather, and they call allies at specific times rather than at random (so their calls are unaffected by the Adrenaline Orb and status conditions). Both the Totem Pokémon and their allies have more advanced artificial intelligence than wild Pokémon, mirroring Trainer behavior. Totem Pokémon each also hold a specific item, usually one that will synergize effectively with their particular strategies or cover their weaknesses. Due to the island challenge rules, Totem Pokémon and their allies cannot be caught. Like all wild Pokémon, if the player steals an item from a Totem Pokémon (such as by using Thief), the player's Pokémon will still be holding the stolen item at the end of battle.

Essentially, totem Pokemon have limited allies, the ally Pokemon they call is random, they call an ally at a specific time, but their ally Pokemon is Smarter than a wild Pokemon.

Source, Experience (I sent out the same lead at the same level in Ultra Moon against totem Kommo-o 7 times and got Noivern 5 times and Scizor 2 times)

Hope I helped!
