Are there any NPCs/Trainers with your name?

The one NPC named Janna exists in BW2 exists as a boss in the Black Tower/White Treehollow. Not too exciting but still something!

Does your name exist as an NPC or Trainer?

I'll go out on a whim and guess that every single game has a trainer with my name in it. Hurray for being common.

There is none and basically 0% chance that it will ever happen in the future, even if they make a game based on the region where I live.
Even in real life I don't know people who have my name. Let alone in a pokemon game lmao

Yes!

My real name is Eoin (pronounced Owen basically; very-very-old Irish for "John").
There is a hiker in HGSS' Kanto on the route between Cerulean and Rock Tunnel, and with HGSS being my favourite game I was ECSTATIC to encounter him.

I was further surprised in XY, I cannot for the life of me remember the town names but there are a Brains and Brawn duo called "Eoin and Wolf".

So, neither of my game-name-sakes are exactly impressive trainers, but it's still so cool to see "my" name in the games. Haven't come across any other Eoin's so far, I tend to leap from my chair when it happens haha.

I believe there's a Lass in Platinum that I share a name with! I remember when I was playing Pokemon in elementary school it was always a big deal when my friends and I found an NPC trainer with the same name as one of us.

My real name is Andre and I saw 3 NPC Trainers with my name so far. In Gen 2, there's a Fisherman in lake of rage. In Gen 4, there's a dragon tamer in victory road. And in Gen 9, there's a Courier I forgot where.

Just did a quick Google and apparently there's a Bug Catcher Conner in FRLG...who has two Weedles and a Venonat, as well as Scientist Connor with a team of Grimer and Weezing. So not the most inspiring of trainers, if I'm honest.

I'm positive there's a Fisherman called Stephen in Gen 2. The first and only instance of finding my name in the game and one I cannot forget!

There's an Ace Trainer in Black/White named Stella. I feel like there's another instance where a NPC trainer shares my name, but I can't remember, and given the sheer number of NPC trainers in the series I don't exactly feel like looking through them all to find it lol

There are at least two instances I found looking it up in R/S/E (but not in OR/AS since they decided to remove all of the female trainers and make the class only male? What???) and S/M/US/UM.
