    - I have added some information about wandering NPCs to the capture guide. At this point, what is left is a comprehensive list of all zones and the number of wandering NPCs + those who can be stopped using the Vs. Seeker.

    justenough and expert evan are working on that below:

    Thanks, could you also list which game you are playing from. I think D/P will have the same Npc's as Pt. But i am not 100% sure.
    Also is it ok to refer to bulbapedia for trainer names?

    Depends on what you mean by "refer" to? If you mean to look up information, definitely. Use any resource you have at your disposal. Verification, if possible, is always nice, though!

    This is for platinum:

    I haven't confirmed this yet though it looks like route 211 west has no moveable NPCs and the same goes for other areas such as Iron Mountain with Riley, Victory Road back section with the arcanine trainer, and Stark Mountain with Buck as well.

    I think route 224 only has one NPC, the veteran, and route 226 has that one fighter up a cliff. route 210 south has that one trainer with a magby & togepi outside cafe.

    Confirmed for route 226, i did 210 earlier but guess i forgot to record. It has 2 Npc's one is the south as you said, and a black belt in the foggy region who you cannot rebattle. Question: Do the Npc's movement in the south affect the ones in the north?

    Edit: I listed route 210 as 215 by mistake

    I believe the foggy area is considered the north section of route 210.

    Is there a list that breaks down the routes into zones? All i know so far is 210 has 2 zones, and most of my finding are done as if each route contained only one zone

    Other Platinum areas with no NPCs at all:

    Mt. Coronet (inside)
    Old Chateau
    Pokemon League
    Snowpoint Temple
    Fuego IronWorks
    Stark Mountain (first room)
    Victory Road (back-2)
    Victory Road (back-3)
    Wayward Cave (secret room)

    My recent seedot catch on route 210 south confirms that pokemon breeder Amber was the only NPC, and my recent machop catch on route 207 confirms only the 2 hikers there. I'll check out route 208 when I have some time.

    Edit: with a seviper capture, I am confirming route 208 has the 3 only NPC trainers as following:

    Aroma Lady Hannah
    Artist William
    Hiker Jonathan

    Edit again: unfortunately route 209 has a non-trainer NPC next to the route.209/hearthome sign

    A lot of it is suggestive. If so it's *ed. Edits in bold, removals noted in ().
    A lot of it was comma removal so you could possibly say the whole "up to you", though I found it unnecessary in some areas. I'm a little rusty with this so don't 100% bank on me to put it bluntly.

    Hope I helped though.

    Why doesn't someone make a list of all the possible locations where there are pokes to capture, so that people can go and check them out individually.

    EDIT: Cleaned the list up a bit and added locations. Someone reported having trouble with a Wandering NPC on Route 208. We think this is because of the fact that there is a Wandering NPC in the house on Route 208. Not entirely sure, but that is what we think right now. I put wandering NPCs that are in houses in any of the areas, besides the cities.

    Here is the intro that you asked for mingot
    ---
    Throughout the games of Pokemon you meet countless characters and trainers which are Non-Player Characters or NPCs. NPCs come in three different types, Stationary, Fixed, and Wandering. Stationary are NPCs that stand still and do not move, while both Fixed and Wandering NPCs move throughout the overworld. Fixed NPCs walk in a fixed pattern throughout their track, while Wandering NPCs walk randomly throughout their track. Neither Stationary and Fixed NPCs affect the frame of the RNG, while Wandering NPCs use the RNG to decide their movement. Wandering NPCs break down into another small section of two, those that can be stopped by VS Seeker and those that can't. When a Wandering NPC want a rematch due to the VS Seeker it becomes a Fixed NPC while circling around or a Stationary NPC after the rematch. Using the VS Seeker allows for you to lessen the amount of NPCs that will advance the RNG, but there is no way to stop Wandering NPCs that are unaffected by the VS Seeker. The best you can do is keep them onscreen and watch and calculate how much the advance the frame.
