Quotes

First battle

Before the battle:
Bzweeeeep! Sorry, don't mind me. What I'm using is an invention of mine. It's my data-analyzing machine It's telling me what you've rented for this match. I see! You've rented <Pokémon> , <Pokémon>, and <Pokémon>. I have to say, that's a good setup. Like, say, [random number] percent? Oh, don't let that number concern you! All righty, let's get going!

After the battle:
Whoa! You sure showed me!

Hmm... I got handed the loss here. It's not making me happy at all, losing. Even though I'm not happy, I did glean some useful data, I suppose. That makes me glad I battled you. So, did you get to like those Pokémon you rented? As a Factory Head, it would sure make me happy if you did. Next time, come back with different rental Pokémon.

Before the battle:
Bzweeeeep! Let's see what I can see about you through my data-analyzing machine. So, what have you rented for this match...? I see! you've rented <Pokémon> , <Pokémon>, and <Pokémon>. I have to say, that's a good setup. It's a combination of friendship with cooperation all around. I'd say it's like [random number] percent? Oh, don't let that number concern you! All righty, let's get going! No losing for me this time!

After the battle:
Whoa! You sure showed me!

Hmm... I got handed another loss. It's not making me happy at all, this. In fact, I'm stewing here. I thought I learned a lot about Pokémon since I lost to you. But that's all right. Some things you learn from winning. But some things you learn by losing. I hope you'll keep renting our Pokémon and give me a chance to redeem myself!
