Quotes

Pokémon Black and White

Initial battle
  •  Before battle
"Man oh man... What is going on today? Challengers coming one right after another. Well, no matter. I am Grimsley of the Elite Four, and I will fulfill my duty to be your opponent."
  •  During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"I never thought you would use that move... Not a bad choice at all."
  • After sending out last Pokémon
"Good, good... But I will never retreat from any battle."
  • During battle (less than half HP)
"Even in this situation, there must be a way to triumph!"
  • When defeated
"If somebody wins a battle, then, without doubt, someone else has lost the battle. That's the way of battle. A real warrior doesn't dash off in pursuit of the next victory, nor throw a fit when experiencing a loss. A real warrior ponders the next battle."
  • After being defeated
"Whether or not you get to fight at full strength, whether or not luck smiles on you--none of that matters. Only results matter. And a loss is a loss. See, victory shines like a bright light. And right now, you and your Pokémon are shining brilliantly."
  • General afterword
"Now, I'm nothing more than the guy who lost... Nothing more, nothing less. Sigh... You should take that strength and test it against the rest of the Elite Four."
  • If defeated last
"Astonishing! You have defeated every member of the Pokémon League's Elite Four. But it isn't over yet. There is one more opponent against whom you must prove your strength. The pinnacle of the Pokémon League, the Champion, Alder... Or, perhaps, that man called N has defeated him and taken his title. I don't know which one you will face, but check the statue in the central plaza, and continue to the final room."
Rematch
  • Before battle
"Life is a serious battle, and you have to use the tools you're given. It's more important to master the cards you're holding than to complain about the ones your opponents were dealt. Let us begin. And may the best Trainer win! Contests like this are proof that you are really living..."
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"You use the move here... It's good. It's fascinating."
  • After sending out last Pokémon
"Well... I've never withdrawn from any battles."
  • During battle (less than half HP)
"Even in this situation, there must be a way...to win."
  • When defeated
"If somebody wins, the person who fought against that person will lose. That's battle. A good contender just seeks the next victory without bragging after winning, and without getting upset after losing."
  • After being defeated
"There are bad ways to win-- and good ways to lose. What's interesting and troubling is that it's not always clear which is which. A flipped coin doesn't always land heads or tails. Sometimes it may never land at all..."
  • General afterword
"Excellent! The nice thing about Pokémon battles is they teach the loser something, as well. That said... You should take that strength and test it against the rest of the Elite Four!"
  • If defeated last
"Astonishing! You have defeated every member of the Pokémon League's Elite Four. But it isn't over yet. There is one more opponent against whom you must prove your strength. Check the statue in the central plaza, and continue to the final room."

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

Initial battle
  • Before battle
"What will be determined here is which of us can absorb the opponent's light and shine... But who will decide that? It shall be I, Grimsley of the Elite Four, and I will fulfill my duty to be your opponent."
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss or switch)
"Now why would you use that move? If I can figure that out, I may be able to win!"
  • After sending out last Pokémon
"A beautiful loss is still a loss, and an ugly win is still a win!"
  • During battle (less than half HP)
"Even in a tough situation like this, there must be a way to triumph!"
  • When defeated
"Where there's a winner, there's also a loser. It's pathetic to make a big deal out of losing if you weren't prepared. If you're a true Pokémon battler, you'll reflect upon your loss and think about how to win next time!"
  • After being defeated
"Whether or not you get to fight at full strength, whether or not luck smiles on you--none of that matters. Only results matter. And a loss is a loss. See, victory shines like a bright light. And right now, you and your Pokémon are shining brilliantly."
  • General afterword
"Now, I'm nothing more than the one who lost his light... But this loss will make me shine even brighter next time... If I think that way, it's not too bad. Sigh... You should take that strength and test it against the rest of the Elite Four."
  • If defeated last
"Astonishing! You have defeated every member of the Pokémon League's Elite Four. But it isn't over yet. There is one more opponent against whom you must prove your strength. Check the statue in the central plaza, and continue to the final room."
Rematch
  • Before battle
"Life is a serious battle, and you have to use the tools you're given. It's more important to master the cards you're holding than to complain about the ones your opponents were dealt. Let us begin. And may the best Trainer win! Contests like this are proof that you are really living..."
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"I never thought you would use that move... Not a bad choice at all."
  • After sending out last Pokémon
"Those who give up on themselves can never claim victory!"
  • During battle (less than half HP)
"There's got to be a way to win... Even in the most extreme of conditions!"
  • When defeated
"Which Pokémon should I raise? Which moves should I teach my Pokémon? What items should I give my Pokémon? You need to think everything through very thoroughly if you want to win! In that sense, you're a very impressive battler!"
  • After being defeated
"There are bad ways to win-- and good ways to lose. What's interesting and troubling is that it's not always clear which is which. A flipped coin doesn't always land heads or tails. Sometimes it may never land at all..."
  • General afterword
"There's nothing left for the loser. I guess that's not true... Everything has a meaning. I just have to use the disappointment as a motivation to get strong. That said... You should take that strength and test it against the rest of the Elite Four!"
  • If defeated last
"Astonishing! You have defeated every member of the Pokémon League's Elite Four. But it isn't over yet. There is one more opponent against whom you must prove your strength. Check the statue in the central plaza, and continue to the final room."

Grimsley in the Pokémon Adventures manga

Grimsley first appears on Route 4 in disguise, where he plays a game of Card flip with the Workers there in order to give them something to do on their breaks. He quickly gets acquainted with Black and challenges him to a game that involves guessing where the local Drilbur will pop up. When a Worker falls into a hole created by the Drilbur, Grimsley reveals that the person is an imposter in disguise due to him telling the Workers not to go on the side they were playing the game on.

Grimsley battles the man and easily manages to win. He then removes imposter's disguise, revealing the person to be a Team Plasma Grunt. Grimsley reveals to Black who he truly is and decides to have a battle with him, with the conditions that whoever loses has to give up something precious. Before Black can answer, he faints from mental stress at the thought of losing his Gym Badges and not being able to qualify for the League. Amused, Grimsley decides takes his leave, but also binds up the Plasma Grunt and leaves a card telling to punish him.

Later, Grimsley travels to the Pokémon League with Shauntal and her Golurk to meet up with their fellow Elite Four members. When discussing what to do with Team Plasma, Grimsley states that unless they attack first, he won't defend because it's not his style. When Team Plasma attacks the Pokémon League, Grimsley and the other Elite Four encounter Hood Man and his team of Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus. Grimsley leaves the others to take care of three legendary Pokémon while he goes to face Hood Man himself.

Trivia
