Quotes

Pokémon Black and White

Initial battle
  • Before battle
"'Eyes brimming with dark flame, this man rejected everything other than himself in order to bring about one singular justice...' That's part of a novel I'm writing. I was inspired by the challenger who was just here, and somehow I got a little sad... Excuse me. You're a challenger, right? I'm the Elite Four's Ghost-type Pokémon user, Shauntal, and I shall be your opponent."
  • During battle (the first non-KO hit)
"Beginnings are important, whether in a good novel or a good battle!"
  • After sending out last Pokémon
"It seems this is the beginning of my final chapter."
  • During battle (less than half HP)
"I feel we're about to turn the page to the epilogue of this story."
  • When defeated
"Wow. I'm dumbstruck! I know a lot of words, but right now I can't figure out how to say this. Perhaps, if the feeling I'm having now is put into words, it will be trapped there. So let me say this... My feeling is you're a great Trainer!"
  • After being defeated
"S-sorry! First, I must apologize to my Pokémon... I'm really sorry you had a bad experience because of me! Oh! It's not your fault! This is how battles always are. Even in light of that, I'm still one of the Elite Four!"
  • General afterword
"Every person who works with Pokémon has a Pokémon story to tell. I've found that stories where people and Pokémon help each other out are far more interesting than stories about only people, or only Pokémon!"
  • If defeated last
"Challenger, if you defeat the entire Elite Four of the Pokémon League, you can go on to challenge the Champion. And you have earned that right. Return to the plaza in the center and check the statue."
Rematch
  • Before battle (five variants)
"'The Trainer's thoughts joined with the Pokémon's mind, and a lustrous Aqua Ring unfurled...' That's part of a novel I wrote. I absolutely love writing about the close bonds between the Trainers who come here and the Pokémon they train. Could I use you and your Pokémon as a subject?"
"'"Do you know Thunderbolt?" was his first greeting to me. It wasn't until after we battled that I learned his name was Volkner.' That's part of a novel I wrote. I absolutely love writing about the close bonds between the Trainers who come here and the Pokémon they train. Could I use you and your Pokémon as a subject?"
"'The tiny but strong Pokémon looked up at its Trainer and saw the seeds of doubt taking root as together they faced their toughest opponent yet. The Pokémon sounded a soft cry of reassurance, and the battle began...' That was part of a novel I wrote. I absolutely love writing about the close bonds between the Trainers who come here and the Pokémon they train. Could I use you and your Pokémon as a subject?"
"'This world doesn't exist just for you. And I'll tell you why...' That was part of a novel I wrote. I absolutely love writing about the close bonds between the Trainers who come here and the Pokémon they train. Could I use you and your Pokémon as a subject?"
"'I have no idea what day it is today, but I will never forget it for the rest of my life.' That was part of a novel I wrote. I absolutely love writing about the close bonds between the Trainers who come here and the Pokémon they train. Could I use you and your Pokémon as a subject?"
  • During battle (the first non-KO hit)
"The beginning is always important for both battles and novels."
  • After sending out last Pokémon
"Oh... I guess it's time to start my last chapter."
  • During battle (less than half HP)
"The epilogue of this story is about to begin."
  • When defeated
"Wow. I'm stunned. For all the words I know, I can't figure out how to say this... Putting my feelings into words would just be a trap. All I will say is I feel you're even greater than I thought!"
  • After being defeated
"S-sorry! First, I must apologize to my Pokémon... I'm really sorry you had a bad experience because of me! Oh! It's not your fault! This is how battles always are. Even in light of that, I'm still one of the Elite Four!"
  • General afterword
"Every person who works with Pokémon has a Pokémon story to tell. I've found that stories where people and Pokémon help each other out are far more interesting than stories about only people, or only Pokémon!"
  • If defeated last
"Challenger, if you defeat the entire Elite Four of the Pokémon League, you can go on to challenge the Champion. And you have earned that right. Your story is yours and yours alone. Please weave a wonderful tale!"
Cynthia's villa
"When I'm writing novels, if I don't have enough input, my output suffers. It's the same thing for Trainers. To grow stronger, Trainers need to have countless battles and learn many things. Then, they must put what they've learned to the test in real battles."
"Rainbow Wing... Silver Wing... They stir the imagination!"
"Distortion World... and the single Pokémon found there... What an amazing scene!"
"No matter how much research I do, I still have no clue. How old do you think Cynthia is? Any idea?"
"I chose my scarf with a certain Pokémon in mind. Do you get it? Using your imagination is important!"

Shauntal makes her first appearance as a stowaway on the train of the Battle Subway. There, she meets White and explains to her that she is there to find inspiration on writing a story. They are soon caught up in a battle between the legendary Pokémon Thundurus and Tornadus. Shauntal reveals that she has been searching for them so she can find the inspiration she wanted.

Shauntal uses her Jellicent to provoke the two Pokémon even further, much to White's shock. Despite her attempts to provoke them, the two Pokémon are calmed down and taken away by Landorus. The two then go to board the train but Shauntal seems worried because she saw someone throw Poké Balls at the three Pokémon just as they were leaving. They board the train and it heads off to Anville Town.
