It is not clear to me how `i' is increasing. Consider this

sysuse auto, clear
local i = 1
foreach v of varlist weight length {
               scatter price `v' if rep78 == `i', name(panel`i')
               local i=`i'+1
}

graph combine panel1 panel2

In my example, ì' is increasing for different levels of rep78.
