Quotes

Pokémon Black and White

"A tip for getting strong in Pokémon battles... Let me guess. I guess the most important thing is... having a lot of battles! If you become very strong, come back and have a Pokémon battle with me!"
  • After entering the Hall of Fame
"Oh! You've become strong! I can tell. Do you want to have a battle with me?"
No: "No? I've been raising Pokémon, thinking about their Abilities and just the right combination of held items. What a pity..."
Yes: "Well, let's begin!"
  • Being defeated
"After all, I am the strongest and greatest. Just kidding!"
  • After being defeated
"You think about battles very thoroughly. I lost, but I learned a lot from you. Besides, it was fun! Come back again tomorrow."
