Quotes

In front of the Battle Subway

  • Before battle
"I heard that in Gear Station you can have Pokémon battles in the subway! So I came here to test my skills, and, what do you know… the Subway Bosses were here! Isn't that amazing? I mean, they're the strongest Trainers in Gear Station! And they said they'd battle if it's two on two! This is an a-MAZ-ing opportunity! Would you PLEASE battle with me?"
Yes: "Thanks! Oh! The name's Rosa! Let's become the best partners ever and surpass the Subway Bosses! So I'll have you challenge the Subway Bosses with me, then!"
  • After battle
"They were so tough, even when they were holding back for us! That's the Subway Bosses for you! I want to get even stronger and battle the Subway Bosses when they're giving it their all! Thanks, <player>! This is a token of my appreciation! Please take it!"
"When you have the Vs. Recorder, you can record your battles with your friends or battles on the Battle Subway!"
"<Player>! I had a really great time battling with you! I hope we can battle together again sometime! See you!"
