Single line

  • Before battle
"Thank you for riding the Battle Subway today. I am the Subway Boss Ingo. I will choose the next destination based on your talent. Do you understand Pokémon well? Can you hold on to your principle? Will you go on to victory or defeat? All aboard!"
  • When victorious
"Ah. Your battle was not bad at all. However, we seem to have done slightly better than you. We would really like to battle with you again! Please ride the Battle Subway again!"
  • When defeated
"Bravo!! Your talent has brought you to the destination called Victory! However, your journey has just started. When you choose your next destination, go full speed ahead!"

Super Single line

  • Before battle
"Welcome! I've been waiting for you! Let me introduce myself... I am the Subway Boss Ingo. What can I see after winning, winning, and winning? Where is my destination? I've kept thinking, and I've learned one thing. That is, you cannot know what happens after winning without winning. Therefore, I will exert every possible effort to battle with you. All aboard!"
  • When victorious
"I have won this time, but your talent is very strong! Your tactics...reading... You have great skills. That's right! I would like to battle you again and again! Please ride the Battle Subway again soon!"
  • When defeated
"Bravo! Excellent!! I am glad that I fought so hard against a wonderful Trainer like you. That's right! You grow stronger by matching yourself against a strong opponent. Please do your best and run toward the destination, an even higher state."

Multi line

  • Before battle
"I am a Subway Boss, Ingo. The fellow over to the side is also a Subway Boss, Emmet. Will a Multi Battle help us cover each other's weakness? Or will you show your overwhelming power? I look forward to seeing how well you fight. However, it is difficult to win unless you and your partner are in total sync."
  • When victorious
"We make a good two-car train, Ingo and Emmet. This time, we worked together toward a victory. However, your abilities are very impressive."
  • When defeated
"Bravo!! What you showed us is a spark as Trainers. However, let me say just one thing. Winning against us is a milestone in your life. You can rack up more and more. Please move on toward an even greater goal!"

Super Multi line

  • Before battle
"Let me introduce myself again. I am a Subway Boss, Ingo! Well, there is nothing else to say for the person who comes all the way here. Let's have the greatest battle, better than ever before."
  • When victorious
"We, Ingo and Emmet, are a two-car train. This time, we were able to work toward a victory. Well, will you stop here? Or will you challenge us again? It's up to you. But let me say one thing. There is no terminal called End in your life!"
  • When defeated
"Bravo!! Really excellent! The best combination of you and your Pokémon. It is incredible! When you and someone else combine, your engine powers something special! If you like, please challenge us with a different combination."

In the anime

Ingo in the anime.

Ingo made his debut appearance at the end of BW045 along with Emmet where they detected Team Rocket's tampering with the track switches. In BW046 the pair went in search of what or who was causing these disturbances and they caught a glimpse of two figures before they disappeared into the shadows.

In BW047 and BW048, Ingo and his brother met Ash, Cilan, and Iris as the subway they were riding had stopped. After Pokémon had been stolen from the Pokémon Center, Ingo and Emmet teamed up with the trio to stop Team Rocket and retrieve all the stolen Pokémon.

Ingo and his brother will reappear in BW051.

Ingo is referred to as "big brother" by Emmet indicating that he's the older of the twins.
