Does Zinnia from Pokémon ORAS seem like Yuffie from FF VII?

So I beat Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and I was introduced to a new character in the post-game. Zinnia. The moment I saw her, I thought she resembled Yuffie from Final Fantasy VII. But I just went along with the game for a while.

Then I went to Granite Cave and there she was again. This time ready for a battle. I saw her battle animation. And oh boy, she DOES seem to resemble Yuffie. Too much.

At first it was her face. But now it's her stance. A silly stance you would recognize in Final Fantasy or Kingdom Hearts games. Now I admit that Yuffie in Kingdom Hearts was originally meant to be Rikku from Final Fantasy X, and Rikku has a similar stance to Zinnia in Final Fantasy X, but I still feel the stance is similar and/or relevant to Yuffie.

Maybe this is just one of the dozens of character clichés that show up in anime. After all, if everything's the same, nothing's a rip-off, right?

Stop surprise-adopting me.
