First battle

Before the battle:
No need to worry. ♪ Let chance do what it does. Like surprises from the game board, life goes through twists and turns. No need to worry. ♪ Things will go as they will. But, enough of that. I know one thing for certain. You have arrived here not merely because you were lucky. Let us not waste any time. I wish to test your skills myself!

After the roulette:
Always be smiling! Luck comes to those who are happy! That's why I always keep a big smile and believe in my Pokémon when I battle.

After the battle:
You're so very, very good! My Pokémon had a good time, too!

How fabulous of you! Your love of Pokémon shone through, and, in turn, your Pokémon believed in you. That is why you handled everything thrown your way splendidly. A most wonderful victory it was!

Second battle

Before the battle:
No need to worry. ♪ Let chance do what it does. Like surprises from the game board, life goes through twists and turns. No need to worry. ♪ Things will go as they will. But, enough of that. You are proving yourself incredible. Are you incredible because you are so lucky you shrug off bad luck entirely? Or, are you so incredibly talented to not be swayed by luck, good or bad? I wish to see for myself what brought you to me today!

After the roulette:
Whenever I battle someone tough, I smile. I cannot help it! How about you? What do you do? Do you laugh? Cry? Get angry?

After the battle:
Battling a wonderful Trainer is always a happy occasion!

Truly, it was so very fabulous of all of you! Bad luck, you cast aside, and good luck, you netted. That you did so is evidence of your abilities. By defeating me, Dahlia, you have proven your mastery brilliantly! I am sincerely happy for having this battle against you!
