    Can anyone help me in changing the name of Gym Leader and the trainers in Pokemon Platinum? I tried various tools including PPRE and Poketext but failed.

    Why would you care?
    Why would you want to change their names?

    I want to hack the platinum rom by changing the wild pokemon, badges, etc. So I want to also change the name of gym leader as well.

    It is clearly impossible. Why would you possibly think it's possible to change a string of text in a game?

    Why would you like to know?
    Have you tried using Thenewpoketext to edit the in game text? That tool was used to edit the Pokemon HG/SS scripts back when it was being translated.

    @SupremeDirt:
    There are more than few dozen of hacks for pokemon game that involve changing the text/string in the game out there, so it's very possible to do it.

    @Spenstar:
    I tried, but the name of the trainer and gym leader are not in there.
