Joshua kept silent as Dawkin voiced his confidence that Amelia could get over whatever obstacle might hold her back. Short of a blessing from Arceus or Xerneas, he wasn't sure that would ever happen. Keeping such throughts to himself though, he evaluated the pokemon Dawkin had caught, thinking about what he knew of each of them.
"Well, your starter is definitely a powerful one. In it's current form, it's physical defense and it's physical attack are about equal and it's best attributes. And in terms of typings, you only need to look out for Fighting, Ground, and Water Type moves. Thanks to this guys Steel typing, you'll never have to worry about poison." He said before looking at Dawkin. "In terms of evolutions though, you got a long road until this little guy evolves. That being said, he does have a third form and Aagron is a fearsome beast. That main things that are it's downfall are it's slow speed and it's weaknesses, since it's Special Defense is... well, rather bad and even with it's physical defenses, Fighting Types will hurt a lot."
He then turned his attention to Wooper.
"As for this guy, his only weakness is Grass, so most match-ups you'll be fine, though some pokemon can learn Grass-Type moves without being Grass-Types. This little fella does evolve but there are stronger pokemon out there. That being said, this guy will definitely serve you well down the road so long as you use him smartly. He won't learn a lot of offensive moves on his own so you should keep an eye out for TMs that you can use on him. It can learn a high number of offensive moves of various types with those things.."
Looking at Pichu, he smiled.
"Hard to find is a rather loose thing to catch pokemon off of. What's rare in one region might be fairly common in another. Anyway, this is a Baby pokemon, so if you're hoping it'll be powerful, you got another thing coming. If you want to evolve it, you need to become very close to the little guy. Then you need a Thunder Stone the evolve it to it's finally form. Overall, an average pokemon, but since it's only weak to Ground-Types, not a bad one to have for a while at least."
Finally, he turned to Tyrunt and gave a slight 'hm' before speaking.
"Now, this one, will be one of your more powerful pokemon. It's a Dragon Type but it's also a Rock Type. Unlike your Aron, whose Steel Typing helps it resist more types, Dragon does not. You need to watch out for Fighting, Steel, Ice, Ground, Dragon, and Fairy Type moves, most of which are favored by more experienced trainers. That being said, it's a physically offensive powerhouse and not one that should be underestimated."
His evaluation of each individual done, Joshua leaned back in his seat as their drinks arrived. He took a sip of his water, thinking.
"You're team is more well rounded then most at your level. You got a variety of types and several difference match-ups that are to your advantage or disadvantage. Long term, some of your pokemon are more useful, but if you can utilize them properly, you'll be able to use all of them throughout your journey."
