- "I-I'm sorry! I'm just really in a hurry! P-please excuse me!"
- "Took ya long enough. I wanna get down to business, yo!"
- "Yeah, yeah... I've got what I promised you. Gettin' a little greedy, huh?"
- "Heh! Well, that's true enough. Course I could just go into Stony Cave myself and get some, but... ...Well, it does get pretty dicey in there. Having you lend your particular expertise to that problem is... ...just plain expedient. Ain't no other way about it."
- "What! You're gonna have 'em get you even more? Those little losers?!"
- "You serious?! Dude, you're cold! It's their dream to build their own home, ain't it? They're gonna keep believing in that dream and just keep bringing you gems forever? Never knowing it won't come true? Maaan, I think I could cry. Ain't you got any heart left?"
- "Well, you ain't wrong there. Nahahahahahahahahaha!!!"
- "You...you were tailing me? You mean you actually saw through my mad skills? I'm impressed, losers. But...watcha think you're gonna do now? You wanna fight? With the two of us? I'm warning you now, I've been tussling on the wrong side of the route my whole life. The Pokémon battles I've lived through...well, little squirts like you couldn't imagine. Id'd be best for you to just toddle off home to your mamas, you hear?"
- "My, my, my. And even after I went to the trouble of warning you losers..."
- "Fine, then. Why don't we just show you? We'll show you what a big mistake you're making! Let's roll!"
- Main article: Virizion (Gates to Infinity)
She is a lone warrior and arrives in Post Town, everyone fawning over her. She is known for rejecting any advances (friendship or love), which includes the latest from Dunsparce. She opens up and battles the Pawniard alongside the player, Dunsparce, Emolga, Gurdurr and the Timburr, after which she is automatically recruited into the team. It is later revealed by Umbreon, that Keldeo went to the Great Glacier and sent a note that he really wanted to get away from her. This caused Virizion to not want to associate with anyone, thinking that everyone would betray her.
Initially introduced as a very shy guy and Emolga's best friend, he's revealed to have taken a liking to Virizion like everyone else in the town. He tries to get Virizion's attention by presenting her with a gift, but gets rejected. He gets tricked by the Pawniard into going to Desolate Canyon with them and the player, Gurdurr, the Timburr, Virizion and Emolga join him in battle against the Pawniard. He reconciles with Virizion and gets automatically recruited into the team together with Emolga. On the day of the Magnagate opening he pulls the short straw, but at the last second Emolga pushes Dunsparce in and he stays behind.
- Just before and upon meeting the player:
- "Ohhh... What am I going to do... Ah!"
- "Y-yes! I am!"
- "Th-thank you! Thank you so much! I really...appreciate...it... WAAAHHHHHH!!!"
- When giving the player their reward:
- "<player>! <partner>! Thank you so much for rescuing me!"
- "Ygh... I know... I really want to be the kind of Pokémon who does the rescuing, you know... But I'm not strong... And I get afraid...and then I always lose my nerve when the big moment arrives... I always mess up, and then I have to be the one who gets rescued in the end... I guess I'm just really not cut out to be an adventurer..."
- "Yes! It's my dream to become a first-rate adventurer. It would be nice to explore all kinds of different places on adventures, of course... But really...I'd just like to help Pokémon around the world who are in trouble! I want to be able to give coureage and hope to Pokémon that are suffering! I just want to be useful--even a little! ...Th-that's my dream anyway. But... There's a huge gap between dreams and reality...and no matter what I do, I can't..."
- "I wanted a crystal. I'd heard that the crystals in Stompstump Peak are really beautiful..."
- "Ahh! That's it! This is it! This is the crystal I wanted! Wow, it really is beautiful!"
- "What?! Are you sure?"
- "Th-thank you!"
- "Oh! I... Um, that's--I--! You see... Hoho..."
- "...Y-yes... Hoho..."
- "What?! I...I can't do that!!! I really, really want to be friends with Virizion! But... How could I ever be brave enough to talk to someone like her? There's no way she'd even notice someone like me..."
- "Wait... You guys! Hey!"
- "Umm... Well... Th-this is... This crystal is for you, Miss Virizion!"
- "Yes! That's right! P-please! Please be my friend!"
- "Wha... Wait--what?"
- "Sniff... I... Waaaaaahhhhhh!!!"
- "I-I think... I think I'd better go home after all..."
- "I...I was really upset back in town... When I heard what you two were saying, I thought, "I want to be strong right away!" And that's why I came this far, but... But... I'm not sure just getting stronger...is what I really want..."
- "A-and besides... When I really think about it...no one can become strong just like that, right?"
- "So I-I...I'm going home. Good-bye!"
- "Emolga! Everybody! I'm going to fight! You don't need to protect me! I will fight and I won't be afraid! I promise! So you should all--!"
- "It's...it's finally over!"
- "Yeah... I guess I got rescued again, huh? But I...was actually gullible enough to believe I could be strong just like that... It was all because of me that you all... Ahh, I really am useless...aren't I..."
- "A-are you sure? I mean, I'm not..."
- "Then I...I definitely wat to join you!"
- "<player>! <partner>! I'm going to do my best! Let's make a real paradise together!"
- "I... I... Hoho..."
- "<player>! <partner>!"
- "Good morning!"
- "We're going to form a team?"
- "OK, then we should start thinking of a team name!"
He is first met when the player is looking for Dunsparce. He is Dunsparce's best friend and encourages to give Virizion a gift as a means of appreciation. After she rejects him, he instantly hates her and demands for her apology. He votes against her joining the team, but is later accepting towards her. When the player is asked to fill in a team name, he suggests "Emolga's Enforcers" which is longer than the character limit. When Dunsparce pulls the short straw, Emolga pushes him into the Magnagate.
- "Who's that? Who's over there?! Dunsparce... Nope, clearly not. They don't really look like enemy Pokémon either, but..."
- "Request? Ohhh. That bulletin board thing. So there are still Pokémon desperate enough to work for that dinky reward, huh? Thanks, though. I could use your help. I'm Emolga. I'm looking for Dunsparce, too. Dunsparce is my best friend, got it? But... He's a bit of a coward really...and he's always messing up... Pretty much whenever he does anything, he ends up needing someone to bail him out. So, you know, I was getting a bit worried and decided to look for him myself... If you guys happen to find him first, take care of him would ya? See ya."
- "Thank goodness! So this is where you were! You guys found him, huh? Thanks. We owe you big time."
- When the player receives their first reward:
- "I'm glad we found you this time, but... you've gotta stop being so reckless!"
- "That...that's not true! I mean, sure, you're a bit of a coward and so things don't always go so well... But your heart's in the right place, right? That's pretty hard to find these days."
- "But why'd you try going someplace like Stompstump Peak again?"
- "Aha! So that's it! You wily scamp! So that's what you were after, huh?"
- "Dunsparce has adored Virizion from the first time he laid eyes on her... he really wants her to be his friend."
- "Dunsparce! This is your big chance! Go and give 'er that crystal!"
- "The Rainbows of Hope! I've heard of them, too!"
- "Dunspaaarce! Virizion! That was so cold! What is wrong with you?! You could've just accepted his gift, you know! Argh!"
- "Don't you touch Dunsparce!"
- "Freeze, you two! Don't you move a muscle! Dunsparce is my best friend, you hear!"
- "Hmph! How about it, bullies? Watcha gonna do now? Your chances don't look so good now, do they?"
- "We... We beat 'em! We really chased away the bad guys! We did it!!!"
- "Dunsparce! You OK?"
- "That's not true! You realized it before it went too far, didn't you? That it's not that easy to get strong. If you hadn't, we would've been way worse off! We might've had to fight those bullies on their own turf instead of here in the open! I'm glas they didn't take you all the way to their hideout. And besides... You fought bravely to the end, without giving in to fear, right? You did good, Dunsparce. I for one think you gave it your all."
- "Y-you want us?!"
- "I... Well, I don't really mind, if that's what Dunsparce wants to do."
- "Guess I don't have much choice then... I'll give it my all, too! Let's do this!"
- "You--! What do you think you're trying to pull now, huh?! What happened to all your big talk about not making friends? Not trusting anyone? You just say whatever comes into your head, don't you? You're messing with us! If you're just toying with us, then we don't need you in our Paradise!"
- "I...I do NOT approve! No way! Come on, <partner>! Tell her to hit the road!"
- "WHAAAAAAAAAAAAT?! Why should I have to be friends with someone like her?! I'll never accept you, you hear that? Right, Dunsparce? You've gotta feel the same, don't you?"
- "I'm not OK with this, <partner>. Seriously not OK. Just so you know."
- "Why would you even want someone like that in your Paradise?!"
- "Wha-what kind of reason is that?!"
- "Morning, <player> and <partner>! Hey, <partner>... It looks like Pelipper's here with some kinda delivery for you."
- "No way! What does it say?"
- "Sounds good to me. If we become a team and get Team Badges, we could take on anything!"
- "Yeah! That's right! Hmmm... How about Emolga's Enforcers? Pretty cool, right?"
- "Hey! What about my idea?!"
- "I think it's good, too!"
- "Right? That's because it's an awesome name! "Emolga's Enforcers" it is, then-- ...Hey! You guys haven't been listening to a single thing I've been saying, have you?!"

Virizion, Emolga, Gurdurr, and The Timburr Bros. appear and they all battle. The Pawniard Brothers lose and flee.

It is later revealed that they work with Munna, Kyurem, and the Bittercold. Like Munna, they also change their minds about the world's destruction and cheer on the player during the final battle.
During the trip to destroy the Bittercold, the player is faced with a battle against Salamence and two Chandelure who are part of Munna's gang. After Salamence is defeated, the three villains fall in defeat. Shortly after, Emolga is attacked by one of the two Chandelure but Espeon appears and knocks it out before it can do any harm.
