Quotes

Pokémon X and Y

Coumarine Gym

  • Before battle
"Ho! So yeh've made it clear up here! I'm the Gym Leader. Ramos's the name. So what'd yeh think, whippersnapper? Did yeh enjoy the garden playground I made with all these sturdy plants o' mine? Their strength is a sign o' my strength as a gardener and a Gym Leader! Yeh sure yer up to facing all that?"
  • Being defeated
"Yeh can't take things too quickly when it comes to forming a friendship with your Pokémon, sprout!"
  • After being defeated
"Yeh believe in yer Pokémon... And they believe in yeh, too... Mighty oaks from acorns grow. Go on, then. Yeh've earned it. Here's yer own Plant Badge, sprout."
"If yeh've got yerself a Plant Badge, then yeh can use the HM Fly even when not battling. It's a real boon. Pokémon up to Lv. 60 will listen to yeh, too, easy as falling off a log. Even if yeh got 'em from a trade. Here--have this, too. Might as well make hay while the sun shines, I reckon."
"That TM there is for Grass Knot. Yeh can use it to trip yer opponents up in the grass. The heavier the opponent, the harder it'll fall--and the more it'll hurt."
"Ain't it a marvel? Frail little blades o' grass can break through concrete, even. I can't help admirin' that strength."
  • Post-game
"When yeh know for certain sure yeh ain't never gonna meet again... Well, yeh can give in and accept it. But if yeh think there might be a chance, and yeh wander the world for 3,000 years tortured by that flicker of hope... I tell yeh, sprout, I couldn't have stood it."

Battle Chateau

  • Before battle
"So yer back for more, whippersnapper! I know I'll enjoy another Pokémon battle with yeh, sprout, sure as trees grow up!"
  • Being defeated
"A true friendship with Pokémon takes time. Yeh can't force it, yeh little whippersnapper!"
  • After being defeated
(if he gives the player an item) "Go on, then. Take it. Yeh've earned it."
"Yeh believe in yer Pokémon... And they believe in yeh, too... It was a fine battle, sprout."
  • After defeating the player
"Hohoho... Indeed. Frail little blades o' grass'll break through even concrete."

In the anime

Ramos in the anime

Ramos made his debut in Thawing an Icy Panic!. He first appeared with his Gogoat, after Clemont accidentally broke the gate to his Grass-type garden. After an angry Vanillish and Vanilluxe created a snowstorm after they heard Vanillite's wail, as it was captured by Team Rocket, Ramos searched Coumarine City for the cause. After Gogoat rescued Ash from the angry Pokémon, the Vanillish and Vanilluxe, he used his Jumpluff and used Sunny Day to stop the snowstorm and then he had multiple Sunflora used Solar Beam to destroy the snow. Then the Vanillish and Vanilluxe, as well as the Vanillite Team Rocket had previously stolen from the Pokémon Center were captured by their mecha, he used his Gogoat along with the help of Ash and his friends Pokémon to destroy the mecha, and Ash and his friends Pokémon sent Team Rocket blasting off, the three captured Pokémon were rescued and went off happily. Later he went back to the Coumarine Gym, and Clemont correctly deduced that he was the Gym Leader.

In his debut, Ramos lectured Ash on the importance of not only facing challenges head-on, but sometimes taking the "side road" as well. He demonstrated this by using Jumpluff and Sunflora to melt the snow rather than attack Vanillish and Vanilluxe, and later by using Gogoat's attacks to immobilize Team Rocket's machine rather than trying to immediately destroy it.

He had a Gym battle against Ash in The Green, Green Grass Types of Home! and lost. He reappeared in Under the Pledging Tree!.

He was mentioned in XY125.

After they and a Vanillite were captured by Team Rocket's mecha. It used its powerful attacks to defeat the mecha, along with Luxio, Fennekin, Pikachu, and Frogadier.

Gogoat was also the last Pokémon Ramos used during Ash's Coumarine Gym battle, sending it out to face Ash's Frogadier. During the battle, Gogoat demonstrated its strong Grass-type attacks, which were almost enough to defeat Frogadier, until Ash recalled a lesson Ramos had taught him about gardening, and used it to come up with a winning strategy, allowing Frogadier to eventually defeat Gogoat with a Water Pulse.

It appeared again in Under the Pledging Tree!.

Ramos in Pokémon Adventures

Ramos debuted in the X & Y chapter. He was first mentioned by Grant as having not yet arrived to a meeting between the Kalos Gym Leaders about what to do with Team Flare. Once he arrived and the meeting finished, Ramos and the other Gym Leaders meet up with Y's group. They travel by sea on Wulfric's Avalugg to Geosenge Town, where Team Flare's base is located. Upon arriving, they find the ultimate weapon in the process of being activated. When Y leaps in to keep the weapon's petals from opening, the Gym Leaders assist her by also using their strength and their Pokémon to keep the weapon closed.

Despite their best efforts, the Gym Leaders are unable to prevent the ultimate weapon from blooming and firing on the Kalos region. The attack hits many areas and damages several buildings, but the heroes' efforts managed to weaken the weapon's power and prevent any lives from being taken. The Gym Leaders and Y were also protected from the attack thanks to Olympia and Valerie's Pokémon surrounding them in barriers.

Later, Ramos meets with X and his friends at the Lost Hotel. Ramos reveals that the Kalos Gym Leaders are helping rebuild the damaged buildings that were destroyed by the ultimate weapon's blast. Due to Team Flare's influence over the media, the Gym Leaders and X's group were blamed for the incident.
