Thorton uses rental Pokémon from the same pool that you and your opponents use in the Battle Factory, although I could not find a list of these.

You didn’t ask for this, but here’s a list of every Pokémon the normal trainers can have, as well.

This should be extremely useful. Thanks!
I will add a little tip for you. The frontier brains do not use their pokemon in the same order. They will always use the pokemon that has a super effective move against yours as their lead. Let's take palmer's second battle for example. If you lead out with a Staraptor, he will use either Regigigas or Cresselia because they have stone miss and ice beam. If you lead with infernape, he will lead with Cresselia. Use this to your advantage to form a strategy beforehand
