  • First meeting
"Forget it. Quit wasting your time with this person."
  • Before battle
"Let's take him/her on two versus one. We must improve our chances of winning."
"There's another one?"
  • Being defeated
"Probability is just probability, after all... Absolutes do not exist."
  • After being defeated
"Oh my, oh my?"
Lysandre Labs
  • Before battle
"I've seen this kid somewhere before."
"I have no idea. But obviously he's/she's not in Team Flare. Let's get him/her, yeah?"
"Oh! What a brute! Look at poor Celosia!"
  • Being defeated
"Your ability flies in the face of all probability! Just what is the source of your power?"
  • After being defeated
"We've been using the electricity we stole from the Power Plant to get everything prepared for activating the ultimate weapon. But it's not like that's all we'll need to use it. Are you following me? We'll need energy absorbed from Pokémon to power the device! Yes! It's the stones on Route 10 that will steal that energy for us and power the ultimate weapon!"
  • If talked to again
"That's right. The stones on Route 10 normally put out energy, but when the ultimate weapon is activated, that reverses and they begin to absorb energy from Pokémon!"
