Quotes

Pokémon X and Y

Laverre Gym

  • Before battle
"Oh, if it isn't a young Trainer... So you've flown all the way through my Gym, fluttering down to me on a fortunate wind. Then I suppose you have earned yourself the right to a battle, as a reward for your efforts. I am Valerie, who leads this Fairy-type Gym. I hope your visit will prove entertaining to you. The elusive Fairy types may appear frail as a breeze and delicate as a bloom, but they are strong."
  • Being defeated
"I hope the sun is shining tomorrow... That would be reason enough to smile."
  • After being defeated
"Yes... that was a fine battle. I shall reward you for this great victory. This is the Fairy Badge. It is yours now. Its beauty is captivating, is it not? ... ... ... ... ... ... Ah... Do forgive me. I was so captivated, I forgot for a moment that it is yours."
"This captivating Fairy Badge will endear any Pokémon up to Lv. 80 to you... Yes, even those Pokémon that you may receive from others will obey you. I also wish to award you this TM... Please consider it a personal gift from me, not simply the winnings of a battle."
"Oh? My, what a curious feeling... I can't seem to recall any longer which move is contained in that TM. I hope you might forgive me."
"My designs are said to be rather mystifying. Do you agree with that? I've always wanted to be a Pokémon, you see. That desire is my inspiration and what I try to achieve by designing. And yet...the only time I feel I am truly one with Pokémon is when we are embroiled in desperate battle. I wonder why that is... Hmm... Could it be-- Never mind. It is nothing, kind Trainer."
(post-game) "What do you think it is exactly that separates humans from Pokémon? Is there even need for such a thing? Why should they be separate from one another?"

Battle Chateau

  • Before battle (initial)
"Oh, if it isn't my young Trainer... It is lovely to get to meet you again like this. Then I suppose you have earned yourself the right to a battle, as a reward for your efforts. The elusive Fairy may appear frail as the breeze and delicate as a bloom, but it is strong."
  • Before battle (rematch)
"Oh, if it isn't my young Trainer... We seem to keep meeting like this, don't we? Then I suppose you have earned yourself the right to a battle, as a reward for your efforts. The elusive Fairy may appear frail as the breeze and delicate as a bloom, but it is strong."
  • Being defeated
"I hope that you will find things worth smiling about tomorrow..."
  • After being defeated
(if giving the player an item) "I hope you will accept this gift from me... Please consider it as a personal gift from me, not simply the winnings of a battle."
"That was truly a captivating battle. I might just be captivated by you."
  • After defeating the player
"Oh goodness, what a pity..."
