The Thorton 1 change is the only one I know of at the moment.

685 Mismagius Timid Wise Glasses Shadow Ball Energy Ball Icy Wind Destiny Bond.
It used Thunderbolt while I used Destiny Bond, then it used Thunderbolt for the KO, which allowed me to KO with Destiny Bond. Unfortunately I don't have the battle vid because it's saved over with my highest win streak.
I'm not sure what could be the cause of that. I've fought Thorton 1 numerous times in SoulSilver and he always used Pokemon 351-486. You mention you play HeartGold instead of SoulSilver. It would be really strange but I wonder if that's the cause.
