Can multiple trainers catch the same Pokemon?
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet introduce a more streamlined multiplayer mode, where trainers can explore around the map together. When playing with other trainers, can more than one trainer catch the same Pokemon? Or can only one trainer catch that Pokemon?

I found https://attackofthefanboy.com/guides/can-your-friends-see-the-same-shiny-pokemon-in-co-op-in-pokemon-scarlet-and-violet/ about shiny Pokemon, but it works for your question, too:
The bad news is the shiny Pokemon that you and your friends will encounter will be the same across each screen. So, if you all find it simultaneously, only one of you can meet and catch the Pokemon. There’s no way to share the Pokemon or have multiple spawns, so everyone comes away with a shiny Pokemon.
It seems that only one trainer can battle and catch that specific wild Pokemon.
