I thought they always matched you in level at that point, though I've only got that far using level 50 pkmn myself.
In other news, I just blew my luckiest Battle Factory run to date to something that was completely avoidable.
Battle Factory (Open Level): 53 wins
My team for match 54:
919 | Latios | Adamant | Lum Berry | Dragon Claw | Shadow Claw | Earthquake | Dragon Dance | Atk/Spe
906 | Heatran | Modest | Shuca Berry | Heat Wave | Flash Cannon | AncientPower | Scary Face | SpA/SpD
611 | Blissey | Calm | Chesto Berry | Toxic | Double Team | Softboiled | Counter | HP/SpD
631 | Swampert | Modest | Expert Belt | Muddy Water | Earth Power | Ice Beam | Counter | HP/SpA
868 | Hippowdon | Adamant | Quick Claw | Earthquake | Stone Edge | Crunch | Thunder Fang | HP/Atk
752 | Arcanine | Modest | White Herb | Overheat | SolarBeam | Dragon Pulse | Sunny Day | SpA/Spe
Heatran is in play with full health. Blissey is fainted and Latios has 17HP remaining. Opponent's Swampert is fainted and its Hippowdon is in play, Toxic poisoned, with about 5% or less of its HP. Sandstorm is up. I don't know the CPU's 3rd Pokemon yet.
I decide to AncientPower since it's a guaranteed KO and has a stat boost chance. Instead I get owned by a Quick Claw Earthquake. Latios can't deal with Arcanine, and probably wouldn't have been able to survive the sandstorm anyway.
I could have won if I had switched out Heatran for Latios, since the latter was useless at that point anyway and could have given me the turn I needed for the poison KO.
Oh well. Here's a Battle Recorder video of a match from the same streak wherein I come perilously close to losing to Power Trick Shuckle: 16-21089-54065
List of Pokemon I encountered on streak 8. Everything I checked had 31 IVs, but I didn't check everything this time.
