* The regions in the main series of ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' video games' regions all contain an O, specifically one that would be rendered as ō when romanized in Hepburn - Kant'''o''', J'''oh'''to, H'''o'''enn, and Sinn'''oh'''. This was averted with Isshu. However, its English name is Un'''o'''va. This also sometimes occurs in the spin-offs, such as '''O'''rre or '''O'''blivia. In Generation III, everyone who wasn't a Grunt had a name that matched their team, meaning that Team Aqua is led by '''A'''rchie and Team Magma is lead by '''M'''axie.
