  • Before battle
"Oh! Thank you for coming. Allow me to introduce myself..."
"Bonnie! How many times do I have to remind you... It's not my own strength that matters, nor any other Trainer's. None of us would be here if it weren't for Pokémon."
"She's right about that, at least. Let's both do our best in battle."
  • Being defeated
"Your passion for battle inspires me!"
  • After being defeated
"Oh, Bonnie... When will you learn there's no shame in losing? I'm glad whenever I get to learn something new thanks to strong challengers like this boy/girl here. Now, to the victor go the spoils! This Voltage Badge belongs to you!"
"If you have a Voltage Badge, you will be seen as a friend and equal by any Pokémon up to Lv. 70. And here. Take this TM as well..."
"Arghhh! Bonnie, you--! ... ... ... The future is now, thanks to science! Behold the machine that gives: Technical Machines! ...I just wanted to be able to say it, OK? At least once."
"Look, I'm not... It's not like I'm just trying to make myself stronger or... ... ... ... All I'm trying to do is enjoy every day to the fullest with my Pokémon, while doing the science that I love with my inventing."
(post-game) "How did the world look after defeating the Champion? I really want to understand it. The way the world looks to a real Pokémon Champion... I'm trying to invent a machine that will let me see it for myself."
