Pokémon X and Y

Gym battle



Santalune Gym

  • Before battle
"That determined expression… That glint in your eye that says you're up to the challenge… It's fantastic! Just fantastic! Is this your first time challenging a Gym? Fantastic! Whether it's the tears of frustration that follow a loss or the blossoming of joy that comes with victory… They're both great subjects for my camera! Fantastic! This'll be just fantastic! Now come at me! My lens is always focused on victory—I won't let anything ruin this shot!"
  • Being defeated
"You and your Pokémon have shown me a whole new depth of field! Fantastic! Just fantastic!"
  • After being defeated
"Young Trainer, you… No, it wasn't you alone. You and your <Pokémon> have shown me a whole new depth of field! Fantastic! Just fantastic!"
"With that Bug Badge, Pokémon up to Lv. 30 will listen to your orders in battle… Yup, even if you get them from trades! And here! This TM commemorates your win against a pro photog like me."
"Using a TM like that one there lets you teach your Pokémon some new moves quicker than a shutter set to 1/1000 can snap shut! TMs are some of the best gear around. They're point-and-click easy, and you can use them over and over again! Now, the TM that I just gave you is for a move called Infestation. Use it, and it'll be impossible for your opponent to flee from battle! Now then, can you zoom in a bit to check out the tent behind me? Take the stairs that you find beyond it, and you'll be back up to the entrance faster than a flash!"

Battle Chateau

  • Before battle
"Even as a Marchioness, I'm still always looking for the perfect shot. And the quickest way to the perfect shot is by capturing the perfect win!"
  • Being defeated
"Ohhh! No one enjoys losing, but you all were such great opponents!"
  • After being defeated
(if she gives the player an item) "Here! Another bit of gear for such a perfect shot!"
"I knew that you and your Pokémon could show me a whole new depth of field!"

In the anime

Viola is set to appear in XY005 and XY006. Just like her appearance in the games, she will have a Surskit and Vivillon.


  • Viola's Japanese Leader title is 笑顔を見逃さないカメラガール.
