master_trainer_mike presents the speaker with question #208 from calathon:

master_trainer_mike says, "Brock's Rhyhorn only lets you assign 10 of the damage that is being done to another benched Pokemon(s) to it. So stretch kikc does 20 normally, so you can assign 10 to the Brock's Rhyhorn because of its power and 10 to the Erika's Dratini."
