Pre-release, the intended message that introduced battles was to be "The ___ wants to fight!" However, this led to problems with named trainers, such as the Gym Leaders, so the "The" was dropped off. Of course, this spawned the now somewhat-odd sentence structure "____ wants to fight!" The oddity can be seen, for example, in "Lass wants to fight!" A screenshot in the Pokemon Red/Blue manual still contains the old sentence structure - "The BROCK wants to fight!"
