I think doing this would make the game-play far too easy and render certain recovery and restore items useless. I kind of disliked that Gen IV made it so that our Pokémon would be healed of their poison upon reaching 1HP outside of battle. Gen V only made it worse when Pokémon no longer became affected by poison outside of battle. To me, all of this took away that certain sense of dire emergency to heal your Pokémon right away or rush to the nearest Pokémon Center before they fainted. Taking this another step further with HP or PP would just lessen the challenge of the game and it wouldn't be nearly as fun or exciting if it became that much easier to play.
