Quotes

Pokémon X and Y

Pokémon League
  • Before battle
"... ... ... No, I simply can't say." (turns around) "You there! Young man/lady! I have a question I must pose to you. Do you think Pokémon battling can ever be worthy of being called an art?"
Yes: "... ... ... Indeed. You see, cooking is the type of art that disappears as soon as it is completed. Pokémon battles are the same. Even memories of sweet victory soon fade after the battle ends. To devote yourself entirely to such a life, made up of fleeting experiences--that is truly artful."
No: "Fool! You silly, unseeing child! If all you seek in life is to fill your stomach with some tasteless matter, then why are there Chefs in this world?! We labor tirelessly to make something wonderful that will disappear from sight as soon as it is enjoyed. That is the life of a Chef! That is the life of a Trainer!"
  • Being defeated
"I shall store my memory of you and your Pokémon forever away within my heart."
  • After being defeated
"Devote yourself entirely, so even that which will fade and disappear is ingrained forever upon your heart and mind! That is the only fate for any human."
  • General afterword (if chosen first)
"There are no weak Pokémon in a Pokémon battle. There are only weak Trainers. Find the good in every one of your Pokémon. Draw out the unique strengths they possess. Now step back into that elevator and return to the room from which you came."
  • General afterword (if chosen second)
"It is the duty of both Trainers and Chefs to find the good in any raw materials they have to work with. There lies the answer to reaching ever higher. Battle the last two of us and find it for yourself."
  • General afterword (if chosen third)
"There is only one course remaining in your Pokémon League banquet. Devour it with the hunger for strength. Savor it without leaving a scrap behind."
  • General afterword (if chosen last)
"You have drawn forth the strength of Pokémon with your own particular style and method. And now you can challenge the Champion."
Battle Chateau
  • Before battle
"... ... ... Yes, I see it now. This is a path with no end. To seek to be the absolute best is an absurd goal. Yet, as long as I am alive, I shall strive onward to seek the ultimate cuisine... and the strongest opponents in battle!"
  • Being defeated
"I shall store my memory of you and your Pokémon forever away within my heart."
  • After being defeated
(if giving the player an item) "Take this gift with you on your way. And strive always to find the meaning in everything that happens to you."
"No! This result will not satisfy my hunger--my aching thirst for victory! However, when I look at it from a different perspective, I must admit that your way of living is fantastic..."
  • After defeating the player
"Our Pokémon battle was like food for my soul. It shall keep me going. That is how I will pay my respects to you for giving tour all in battle!"

In the anime

Siebold in the anime

Siebold appeared in Mega Evolution Special I. He was working as a chef in a restaurant, and when Alain came to visit the restaurant, Siebold soon noticed his Mega Ring, and they agreed to have a battle. Alain immediately Mega Evolved his Charizard, while Siebold saved his own Mega Evolution for a bit later. His Blastoise was shown to be very well trained, being able to withstand an attack from Alain's Mega Charizard X even when not Mega Evolved itself. Per Alain's request, he then Mega Evolved his Blastoise, turning it into Mega Blastoise. Even though Charizard battled hard, it was finally unable to defeat an Elite Four level Mega Evolution, being defeated with a super effective, Mega Launcher-powered Dragon Pulse. However, Siebold was impressed by how well Alain did in their battle, especially in the face of a type disadvantage.
