These are Aaron's quotes in the Pokémon games.

In the core series games

Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Brilliant Diamond, and Shining Pearl

Pokémon League
  • Before battle
"Hello! Welcome to the Pokémon League! I'm Aaron of the Elite Four. It's good to meet you. Oh, I should explain, I'm a huge fan of bug Pokémon. Bug Pokémon are nasty-mean, and yet they're beautiful, too... Would you like to know why I take on challengers here, in this room? It's because I want to become perfect, just like my bug Pokémon! Ok! Let me take you on!"
  • When last Pokémon is at critical health
"Not yet! Your first Pokémon League victory doesn't come easily, kid."DPBDSP
"It's not over yet! A League Elite Four can't give up!"Pt
  • Upon being defeated
"I will now concede defeat. But I think you came to see how great Bug-type Pokémon can be. I hope you also realized why you're up against in the Pokémon League. Battling is a deep and complex affair..."
  • After being defeated
"I lost with the most beautiful and toughest of the bug Pokémon... We lost because I wasn't good enough... That's it! Back to training camp! Let's hear it for me! No... That was wrong... Anyway... Go on to the next room! Three Trainers are waiting for you. They are all tougher than me."
  • If talked to after being defeated
"Go on, go to the next room. I'm going to become a top-level Trainer who can't be outclassed with my beautiful and tough bug Pokémon!"

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl only

Pokémon League
  • Before battle
"Hi there! I'm Aaron. But actually, I've battled you before, haven't I? Wait a moment! My bug Pokémon are buzzing about something... You must have gotten stronger! The hunch of a Bug-type Pokémon is rarely wrong. All right, then! I'll battle you once more with all my strength!"
  • Upon sending out last Pokémon
"Not yet! We'll keep struggling till the very end!"
  • Upon being defeated
"Guess I was still one step behind... You've won."
  • After being defeated
"Ahhh... Today, as always, my bug Pokémon were truly beautiful. They didn't waste a single motion, and they pulled off some perfectly-polished moves. The only thing that held them back from winning was my own weakness. If I can improve myself, then they'll get a chance to shine brighter than Beautifly wings in the sun! Let's hear it for my Pokémon!"
  • If talked to after being defeated
"Whoops. Got a little carried away again... Anyways, carry on to the next room!"
  • Second rematch onward
  • Before battle
"Hey there, <player>! I had a hunch you'd be back for more battles! I guess you could say a little bug told me. And I can tell just by looking that your Pokémon are more beautiful and polished than before—of course, so are mine! So now, let me show you the Evolutionary power of bug Pokémon!"
  • Upon sending out last Pokémon
"Not yet! We'll keep struggling till the very end!"
  • Upon being defeated
"I lost completely. But I think you've come to realize how great bug Pokémon can be."
  • After being defeated
"This brings me back to when I first discovered bug Pokémon... I couldn't believe how sharply they'd polished their survival skills. Ever since then, I've devoted myself to following the beauty of the Bug type. As much as it bugs me to lost like this to you, I'll never stop aiming for perfection. That way, I can keep on showing the wonder of bug Pokémon to the world!"
  • If talked to after being defeated
"And now, on to the next room! My bug Pokémon have already spread the buzz about your victory!"

Sync Pair Story - A Day with Aaron
  • Off-screen, as "???"
"Sorry–can you wait just a little bit longer?"
  • After appearing, as Aaron
"Oh, hey! It's <player>!"
"Hi there! What a coincidence!"
What are you doing?: "I'm gathering nectar for Vespiquen."
You look busy.: "Yeah, I've been gathering nectar for Vespiquen."
"Out in the wild, that would be Combee's job, but this Vespiquen has only me to help out!"
"Look! Isn't my Vespiquen lovely as ever?"
"I really just adore her..."
"She's just the best... Fantastic... And I can't believe how strong she is..."
"I can't stop praising Vespiquen–the words just overflow from within me!"
"Maybe that's why my Vespiquen has become absolutely gorgeous!"
"I'm sure she could even win one of Sinnoh's contests!"
"Oh, Vespiquen, I'm so sorry! I got so wrapped up in my conversation that I neglected you!"
"Now I'm worried that I may have made her jealous. I really need to be more considerate."
I think you may be overthinking it?: "No, I'm really not."
You clearly care a lot about her.: "Yes, I do."
"She's a strong and dependable partner, and I want to take very good care of her!"
"That's why I wanted to gather a lot of nectar for her."
"Vespiquen is raising her grubs in the honeycomb in her body, so she really needs the nectar."
I'll help!: "Really? Thank you!"
Gathering nectar sounds fun!: "You think so?! Then how about helping me?"
"Let's get started!"
"Whew! I'm getting kinda tired!"
"But thanks to you, we managed to gather a whole lot of nectar. I think Vespiquen's satisfied!"
"When she's satisfied like this, Vespiquen listens to what I say."
"But if she doesn't get enough nectar, she'll go into a foul mood and miss with her attacks."
That's pretty funny!: "I know, right? I'm never bored when I'm with Vespiquen!"
Sounds like a handful.: "Hmm, it's never felt that way to me."
"I really count myself lucky just to have such a wonderful partner Pokémon."
"After all, everyone thinks their own partner is the very best, right?"
"But in my case..."
"No matter who's looking, I'm sure they can see that my Vespiquen is the coolest in the world."
"I truly believe that she's the perfect Pokémon."

"I've learned that there are a lot of different ways to compete with Pokémon."
  • Random conversation

  • Random conversation
"For some reason, I really want to cheer you on, <player>."

"They have so many different Evolutions, and every one of them is beautiful."
"I never get tired of watching you, either!"
"'Cause every time I see you, you show me how much stronger you've become!"
  • If spoken to again

"So I sometimes wonder how you view yourself."

"Whether it's your skill in battle or the way you interact with your partner Pokémon, I'm always so impressed."

"You remind me of how I was at that time."
  • If spoken to again
