I was just battling in Battle Tower again, when I encountered some trainers that said odd things, and had unusual names (Picknicker McMahill for example). I realized that they were probably randomly generated (which explains the mismatched before/after battle messages), and was wondering if anyone could poke into the ROM to figure out how it generated these apparently arbitrary trainers. Not that there's any important reason that I need to know.

The text that's used per trainer is random. Each random dialogue has a before-battle piece of text and a (connected?) after-battle text. Other than that, it's completely random (with possible restrictions--I doubt that I swimmer'll say that they'll roll over you, etc.)

Battle Tower Trainers, and Trainer "status" as Yay Porygon and I have observed (otherwise left blank if neither of us have fought that Trainer yet):

They appear to be famliy names. McMahill is obviously a family name. Sawyer is. Masuda is. Olsen and Zaborowski are family names. Kaufman, (Satoshi) Tajiri, Crawford, Diaz...all family names.

Also, sorry about the names being in all-CAPS, but that's how I have my list, and I didn't want to re-type everything just to take out the CAPS.

Hmm. You think they could be the programmers or something? I'll have to check the credits as soon as I beat the game again. And I kinda suspected that you would be the one to answer this question.

You won't find any of those names in the credits other than "TAJIRI" and maybe a couple others. Could be people employred at Nintendo, or stars that they look up, too, though ^_^
