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."

"So yer back for more, whippersnapper! I know I'll enjoy another Pokémon battle with yeh, sprout, sure as trees grow up!"

  • After being defeated
(if he gives the player an item) "Go on, then. Take it. Yeh've earned it."

Ramos's Gogoat
Gogoat was first seen with its Trainer when Ramos met Ash and his friends arrived after Clemont accidentally destroyed Ramos's gate. Later it was seen in the city when the snowstorm began. It used Vine Whip to rescue Ash after he was trying to calm down an angry Vanillish and Vanilluxe who caused the snowstorm, whom attacked him. 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.

Gogoat's known moves are Grass Knot, Vine Whip, Leech Seed, Razor Leaf, and Horn Leech.

Debut XY057
Ramos's Weepinbell
