When I play Pokemon, I have to have an idea of what I'm going to do in order to win. Type coverage can work for you and against you, as attack types frequently coincide with Pokemon types. I have had strategies in Pokemon that were godly and some that were crap and didn't work. With the exception of Legendary Pokemon, you can't just grab 6 random Pokemon and roflstomp everything. You need to think, you need to employ tactics and you have to have an overall strategy to win. Let's compare this to a game of Starcraft 2, where a battle is often decided in about 10 minutes and a good 3 minutes of that is executing a build order that 99% of the time will not result anything too amazing, but if you have a crap build order and get behind on your macro you automatically lose unless the enemies run their entire army into a wall of Seiged tanks. Where Starcraft 2 is won and lost is in how fast you click on stuff and how quickly you can produce units. Where Pokemon is won and lost is in choices that you make, depending on continually changing sets of circumstances and trying to predict a step or two ahead what your opponent is likely to do. A good strategy can result in a super-buffed Pokemon that sweeps an entire team, but that same strategy can be defeated often in one single correct Pokemon move by your opponent. Pokemon requires strategy, Starcraft 2 requires time-management skills and multi-tasking.
