I just noticed something! Maybe he could be a small reference to Clay Bailey from Xiaolin Showdown? Think about it; Clay/Yacon uses Ground Type Pokémon. Clay Bailey has the Earth element (same as ground). They're both cowboys and both are from the western. Also, they both talk western-like (or whatever its called) and both are named Clay.
