    I think they're both a relief and handy feature, and also it's nice to have some trainers be more than just an exp-granting obstacle in your path.

    For me, they were a total relief and time & money saver. I didn't have to go all the way back to the pokemon center in the middle of a dungeon, and they saved a lot of my potions and revives. I could train around them and use them all I want XDD

    Extremely handy. It allows a virtual Pokémon Center without actually needing to split up lengthy routes.

    I wouldn't say it makes it easier, just saves the time you'd waste going back to the Pokémon Center. The one near Pinwheel Forest was really useful (although I probably especially noticed her as she was the first one), as was the one in Resort Desert.

    They are a life saver sometimes! Like in Pinwheel Forest, you don't have to walk all the way back to Nacrene City.. Same thing in Desert Resort, Twist Mountain, and Victory Road. Its a real relief not to have to walk or fly to a city or something to heal at the Pokemon Center. Especially when you are in the middle of something like Twist Mountain or Victory Road where you have to find your way back out and then go all the way back to where you were in order to continue, and yes, thats the case for someone like me. I'm cheap, I don't buy healing items that much. The most I buy is Pokeballs!

    They are very handy and make things less tedious. They simply save retracing your way to a Pokemon Center, which shouldn't be any challenge if you've already defeated all the trainers along the way. The quicker I get more EXP and have more fun, the better.

    Who is this git?

    I think the concept is really interesting, and it's helpful. Nice to have a trainer that actually helps you when you beat them, in a way besides just giving you an item.

    Didn't need them much, but it was a nice feature to have in the games.

    I loved that nurse by the Pinwheel Forest, since I kept getting poisoned mercilessly by Venipede in there. In general, I think they're very nice to have around, since it cuts back on frustration. And besides, if anyone thinks they make it too easy, well... Nobody's forcing anyone to actually USE their healing ability.

    They have been quite useful once in a while. Especially I enjoy the nurse in Celestial Tower, it's such a long way to Pokémon Center from there.

    Doctors and infinite TMs made any resource management this game ever had virtually non-existent. So yeah, I voted for the 3rd option.
