Kiri

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

Kiri (Japanese: キリ Kiri) is a young girl living in Sootopolis City who gives out two Berries each day the player talks to her: one from among Pomeg, Kelpsy, Qualot, Hondew, Grepa, Tamato, Cornn, Magost, Rabuta, or Nomel Berries, the other from Figy or Iapapa specimens.

Kiri was named after Junichi Masuda's daughter, born right before the Japanese release of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire.[1]

Quotes

  • If the player hasn't talked to her previously that day:
"Hi, what's your name?
… … … … … … … … …
Okay. That's nice!
My name is Kiri.
My mommy and daddy named me that so I would grow healthy and warmhearted.
That's what they wished.
You can have one of these.
Obtained the <Berry>!
<Player> put away the <Berry> in the Berries Pocket.
Kiri will give you this Berry, too!
I really like it lots!
Obtained the <Berry>!
<Player> put away the <Berry> in the Berries Pocket.
I wonder what kind of wish is included in your name."
  • If the player has talked to her previously that day:
"Spring, summer, autumn, and winter.
If you're born in springtime, do you like the spring, and if you're born in the summer, do you like the summer?"
YES:
"Then Kiri was born in the autumn, so I love the autumn!
Which season do you like?"
NO:
"Oh…
It doesn't matter…
There's so much that I want to know…"
