I like the idea of Pokémon recovering after battle if fainted. However, the fact of the matter remains that the Pokémon should NOT be fighting, and to keep that in place, it's not done.

Also, the recovering of HP would be very badly abused by some in an Elite Four/Champion's Room environment, in that one would be able to - if they felt like walking ten million steps at a time - effectively cure their Pokémon without items before the next battle, restock PP, etc.

Hence, Gamefreak won't do this. It doesn't mean I don't wish such a mechanic existed; it just never will.
