Apprentice

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

The apprentice (Japanese: でし apprentice) is a character from Pokémon Emerald located in the Battle Frontier.

In the games

The apprentice will look up to the player for their skill and strategies, and asks the player to assist them by recommending which Pokémon to use on their team as well as items and moves. In time, the apprentice will state that they feel that they have learned everything they can from the player and depart the Battle Tower, after which they can be encountered in the facility. After answering all their questions, a different apprentice will take their place, and the cycle is repeated.

The apprentice will be assigned to a random fixed position in the Tower in Single Mode, much as Anabel is always fought at the 35th and 70th battles. Players can also encounter the Apprentice in the Battle Salon, where they will offer to partner the player in a Multi Battle. The Apprentice's Pokémon's Natures will be random and all Pokémon will have 85 EVs in each stat.

List of Apprentices

The apprentice that appears can be one of 14 Trainer Classes. Which one appears is chosen at random.

Questions

There are several different questions that each apprentice can ask; some will always be asked while some questions may not be asked at all. Apprentices will ask the player a random number of questions, ranging from a minimum of five to a maximum of 14.

Question Answers
Which Battle Tower level setting should they use?* Level 50 or Open Level
Which Pokémon should they use?* This question will be asked three times and give the player a choice between two random Pokémon from a set list.
Which item should their Pokémon hold? The player chooses an item from their bag for the apprentice to have their Pokémon hold. The player may also choose for the Pokémon to not hold anything. If an item has already been suggested to the current apprentice previously they will ask if the player means for the Pokémon to not anything. If the apprentice doesn't ask about a hold item for a particular Pokémon, that Pokémon won't have a held item.
Which Pokémon should they send out first? The player chooses one from the three Pokémon on the apprentice's team to be sent out first. If the apprentice doesn’t ask this question, the order will be in the order which the player chose the apprentice’s Pokémon.
Which move should they have on this Pokémon? The player chooses one of two random moves from one of their Pokémon's learnset for the apprentice's Pokémon to learn. It is possible for the apprentice can ask about multiple moves for a single Pokémon, but which Pokémon they ask about is random.
What should they say when they're victorious?* The player sets a phrase using the easy chat system.

Quotes

First time meeting your apprentice
Bug Catcher Alann
"Are you... <Player>? Oh! Sniff...sob... Oh! S-sorry... I'm so nervous, I can't help crying... I'm Alann, and I really look up to you, <Player>. I... I had this dream of one day meeting you and asking you about Pokémon. Please, please, <Player>! Please teach me about Pokémon!"
  • No (Repeats until the player chooses yes)
"Oh... B-but... Snivel... Waaaaaaah! Please! I'm begging you, please!"
  • Yes
"Oh, really? You will? Awesome! Wicked! Awoooh! Oh... I'm sorry... I'm so happy, I'm crying... Um... Then please tell me! It's about the Battle Tower. Which would be better for me: Level 50 or the Open Level?"
"<Answer>? Waaaaah! Oh! I'm so sorry! You've made me happy by choosing the level for me, and it's made me cry... Snivel... Thank you so much! Please talk with me again!"
Youngster Lionel
"Wowee! You're <Player>, aren't you? You're awesomely strong, aren't you? I'm Lionel! I just became a Trainer! Please, <Player>! Can you be my teacher and tell me lots about being a Trainer?"
  • No (Repeats until the player chooses yes)
"Aww, why? Oh, please? Pretty please? Please be my teacher, please!"
  • Yes
"Yay! Great! The first thing I wanted to ask you is about the Battle Tower! The Level 50 and Open Level Rooms... Which would be perfect for me?"
"<Answer>, huh? That's true! I'll do my best there! If we meet here again, please teach me something else, teacher!"
Lass Layla
"Oh? Huh? You're... No, that can't be true. There isn't any way that someone like me could meet <Player>. ...You really are <Player>? I can't believe I'm talking to you! When something this good happens, only terrible things will happen to me now, I just know it... ...I'm sorry... I'm... Layla... There isn't anything special about me that I can be proud of... I shouldn't even say anything about myself because you'll forget... I had this dream that if I ever met you, <Player>, that maybe I could ask you for advice as a Trainer. But I don't think you would agree to that. ...Or will you be so kind as to give me advice?"
  • No (Repeats until the player chooses yes)
"I knew it... It had to happen because I'm such a really boring nobody... But I thought just maybe... You won't reconsider, will you? But I can't give up just like that. I'll ask you while I'm still lucky! Please, will you be so kind as to give me advice?"
  • Yes
"Really? I can't believe it! I can't believe you'll advise me! I... I'm so happy... What I want to ask you is really trivial, but I can't decide... At the Battle Tower, they let you choose Level 50 or Open Level. Which course do you think even I may have a chance at?"
"<Answer>? Okay! But do you really think someone like me would have a chance? I'll do my best, even though I don't think it will work. Thank you very much for spending time with someone like me."
School Kid Sonny
"Um... Are you <Player>? My name is Sonny. I want to become a Pokémon Trainer, but I don't know what to do... So I thought maybe I could ask you for advice because you're so famous. <Player>, could you give me advice?"
  • No (Repeats until the player chooses yes)
"Oh, but... I sincerely want to become a Pokémon Trainer! Please, can you answer my questions?"
  • Yes
"Thank you! Here's my first question right away! The Battle Tower has two levels, Level 50 and Open Level, right? Which level do you think is more suitable for me?"
"Oh, the <Answer> challenge? Understood! If I have another question, I'll come back here for your advice!"
School Kid Macy
"Oh! You're <Player>, aren't you? I've heard that you're tough at Pokémon! I'm Macy! I'll be your friend! Did you know? You can't win at the Battle Frontier if all you know is what they teach at the Trainer's School. I'm willing to listen to your advice. You'll agree, of course?"
  • No (Repeats until the player chooses yes)
"Huh? Why are you refusing me? It's me who's asking you! You have to reconsider!"
  • Yes
"Okay, so there is this something. I want you to decide it for me. You know that the Battle Tower has Level 50 and Open Level Rooms? Which do you think would be good for me, <Player>?"
"Okay, <Answer> is suitable for me? Thank you! Knowing that you made the decision, <Player>, I won't be so upset if I lose. Okay, I'll look to you for advice again. Bye!"
Triathlete Donte
"Oh, hi, there! <Player>! I know you because you're famous! Call me Donte! Glad to meet you! I'm a Triathlete, so I keep myself fit even while I raise Pokémon. I'm also involved with other things like work, napping, ballroom dancing... Being this busy, it's not so easy for me to become a decent Trainer. So, I have a proposition! There must be a reason why we met. So, <Player>, how about sharing your wisdom with me every so often?"
  • No (Repeats until the player chooses yes)
"Oh, but, please? A guy like me needs someone like you, <Player>! Honestly, I need your advice!"
  • Yes
"Thank you! That's more like it! So, let's start with an easy one! You know about the Battle Tower's two courses, right? You know, Level 50 and Open Level. Me being a busy guy, which one should I gear up for?"
"<Answer>, huh? Okay, gotcha. I'll find time somehow and give it a go! ...Whoops, I'd better go to work! Thanks! See you around!"
Triathlete Amira
"No way! Uh-uh! Are you maybe the real <Player>? A-hah! Awesome! I'm Amira, so pleased to meet you! <Player>, you're very strong, aren't you? Everyone's talking about you! Oh! I just had this great idea! I'll get advice off you, <Player>! I'm sure it will make me tougher! Isn't it a great idea? Please, I want your advice!"
  • No (Repeats until the player chooses yes)
"Ahahaha, you can pretend to be mean, but you can't fool me! You really mean okay, don't you?"
  • Yes
"Yay! I knew you'd have a big heart, <Player>! What should I ask you first? ...Oh, I thought of something! Drum roll, please! The question I have is... If I were to take a Battle Tower challenge, which way should I go? Level 50 or Open Level? Which suits me more?"
"Oh-oh-oh! <Answer>, you say! Thank you for a totally cool reply! I guess that's about all I wanted to ask you today. Let's meet here again, okay? Thanks!"
Beauty Kali
"I beg your pardon, but... Are you <Player>? I'm Kali, and I am delighted to make your acquaintance. I have long been an admirer of yours... ... ... ... ... ... ... Um... I hope you don't find this request too much of a burden, but... May I become your apprentice, <Player>?"
  • No (Repeats until the player chooses yes)
"Oh...! ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ...I must have fainted from shock. I'm sorry, I must have misheard you. Please! Please say that you will accept me as your apprentice!"
  • Yes
"Oh... I'm delighted! I don't wish to waste your time, so please advise me on this. I plan to take a Battle Tower challenge soon. However, there are two levels... Which would be most suitable for me? Level 50 or Open Level?"
"<Answer> is your choice! I see. I will do my best! Thank you, <Player>. I hope I can count on you again. Please take care!"
Gentleman Arturo
"Hm? You appear to be <Player>... But are you really real? You may call me Arturo. I have been toying with the idea of apprenticing under a strong Trainer. So, I must say I'm lucky you came along! ...You really are <Player>, yes? No, no, if you are real, it's fine. I merely want you to recognize me as your apprentice."
  • No (Repeats until the player chooses yes)
"Oh? But what would compel you to refuse? I apologize for being skeptical about your identity. Please accept my apology and accept me as your apprentice."
  • Yes
"You really are accepting me? I don't wish to celebrate prematurely. If it is true, I apologize. But now, I need your advice. If I were to enter the Battle Tower, what would be worthy of me? Level 50 or Open Level?"
"<Answer>? Are you certain? I see. If that's the case, that's fine. I thank you for your time. I realize I can annoy, but it delights me that you have accepted me. Let us meet again!"
Aroma Lady Annie
"Eek! Eek! <Player>! You spoke to me! I... I'm overjoyed! Me! My name is Annie! I just became a Trainer! I'm delighted I met you, <Player>, the big name in Pokémon circles! Oh-oh-oh, I know! May I ask a huge favor, <Player>? Please take me in as your apprentice! I want to learn from you!"
  • No (Repeats until the player chooses yes)
"Waaaah! <Player> turned me down... It... It's an invaluable experience! <Player>, please! I want to hear an affirmative answer this time! I beg you for your guidance!"
  • Yes
"Hieeeeh! <Player> said yes! <Player> said yes! I won't be able to sleep tonight... Thank you ever so much! Then, here's my question! At the Battle Tower, what is right for me, Level 50 or Open Level?"
"<Answer>! Perfectly understood! I understand perfectly! I'm deliriously delighted! I hope you'll be willing to teach me some more another time."
Black Belt Tyrese
"Oh, hi! You there! Can I get you to massage my shoulder? ...Yes, there! That's it! Ouch, ouch! Oooh, that feels great! My name's Tyrese. I take karate training, but my body's not built to take the abuse... I decided I'll battle Pokémon and toughen myself up. You're <Player>, aren't you? The Pokémon League Champ? Listen, can I get you to give me advice?"
  • No (Repeats until the player chooses yes)
"Oh, why? I won't be a big bother, I promise! Please?"
  • Yes
"Thank you. Mighty good of you! ...Cough! Cough! Oogh, I have to toughen up quick... I'll be heading off to the Battle Tower right away, but what would be better for me? Level 50 or Open Level?"
"Hm, all right. That's <Answer>. I'll go there right away. I hope I can keep hitting you up for help--after all, you're my mentor!"
Guitarist Lamont
"Say, hey, aren't you <Player>? What should I do? Talk to you? Why not? I'm already talking to you! <Player>, are you surprised at me? I'd better tell you who I happen to be! Lamont is what you can call me. The brightest star in guitardom, that's me! Are you receiving me? You are receiving me! My luck's at its best, I'll hit you with a request! <Player>, let me be your underling! I want you to teach me everything!"
  • No (Repeats until the player chooses yes)
"You're turning me down, then? I'll just have to ask you again! <Player>, I beg to be your underling! I need you to teach me everything!"
  • Yes
"Lucky, yeah, woohoo! Should I pop a question to you? Since we're near the Battle Tower, how about a question about its power? Of the choices you see, which is the right one for me?"
"If <Answer> is what you suggest, it must be the very best! Well, <Player>, I have to roam free, but don't you forget about me. See you again, my smart friend!"
Hiker Dillen
"Whoa! Could you be... Might you be... <Player>?! That strong and famous Trainer? Well, hello, aren't I just the luckiest! Hello, the name's Dillen! I've been on the lookout for a Pokémon teacher. And with impeccably good timing, along came you, <Player>! So, there you have it, <Player>! Let me apprentice under you!"
  • No (Repeats until the player chooses yes)
"Gwaaaah! You're quite cool and tough... Don't be that way, please. I'm asking you!"
  • Yes
"Oh, yeah! That's a solid reply! Excellent, I might add! So how about a first piece of advice on the Battle Tower? If I were to go, what would be better? Level 50 or Open Level?"
"Uh-huh, <Answer> it is! OK, A-OK! I'll go show my mettle, like, jam! All right, I'll look to you as my mentor! Adios!"
Ruin Maniac Dante
"Er... Um... <Player>...? Please, don't look at me that way. You're making me all self-conscious. I... I'm Dante. I'm really embarrassed to say this, but I explore ancient ruins and such. I'm even more embarrassed to admit I'm interested in the Battle Frontier. <Player>, you have a reputation as a tough Trainer... It's hard for me to say this, but I want to ask something. Could you become my teacher and give me advice?"
  • No (Repeats until the player chooses yes)
"Please don't brush me off like this! I can't live with the humiliation. Please become my teacher! I need your advice!"
  • Yes
"Th-thank you... But please don't look at me like that. It makes me all flustered. Please, answer me without looking at my eyes. At the Battle Tower... Which level should I attempt?"
"Oh... Okay! I'll try my hand at that. I hope I can make a valiant challenge without getting all flustered... Thank you, <Player>. If we meet again, I hope you will be as helpful."
Fisherman Dallas
"Oh, hey, <Player>, right? The police were looking for you! ... ... ... Of course I'm lying! Me, I'm Dallas. Despite the way I look, I'm the Pokémon Champion! ...That's a lie, too! This is no lie, though. I'm not very good at battling. So, how about you becoming my master about all things Pokémon?"
  • No (Repeats until the player chooses yes)
"If you're going to act cold like that, I'll show you what I'll do! Waaah! Waaah! Waaah! Hiccup! Hahaha, that was my Fake Tears! Come on, will you please be my Pokémon master?"
  • Yes
"Yippee! I'll buy you a boat for that! Of course I'm lying again! But... Thank you, master! You know how there's Level 50 and Open Level at the Battle Tower? I'm having trouble deciding which level I should challenge... Can you decide for me, master?"
"Okay, so <Answer> is better! I'll go to the other level, then! Just kidding! I'll obey your teaching, master! Thanks, master! I hope you'll keep teaching me!"
Sailor Frank
"A-H-O-Y! And that spells ahoy, and it means hi! I'm Frank, the rappin' Sailor am I! Your turn now, tell me a little about yourself, give it a try! Uh-huh, uh-huh! <Player>'s your name, and Pokémon's your game! And you're at a delicate age when all the world's your stage! Anyway, I just want to say, that you're the tenth Trainer I've spoken to today. Let's make that a celebration! Become my mentor for commemoration!"
  • No (Repeats until the player chooses yes)
"But! You have to work with me! Don't be such a tease! Become my mentor, please!"
  • Yes
"That's it! <Player>, you've got the spirit! So here's my first question that begs your suggestion! It's about the Battle Tower, and it hinges on my power! Level 50 and Open Level there be, which is the one that's good for me?"
"Okay, <Answer> it is, you say! I'll go and take it on my way! If it's advice I ever need, <Player>, your word I'll always heed!"
Asking about Pokémon to have on their team
Bug Catcher Alann
"Snivel... Oh, <Player>! What perfect timing! There's something I just can't decide... I can't decide which Pokémon I should be using. I can't decide between the Pokémon <Pokémon> and <Pokémon>... <Player>, which do you think will give even me a chance at winning?"
"Snivel... I... I understand! Oh! I'm so sorry! You've made me so happy, I'm crying... I'll do my best to catch one <Pokémon>! Thank you so much!"
Youngster Lionel
"Yay! It's <Player>! Yay, you came at the right time, too! I need your advice again! Um, I'm all mixed up--should I use my < Pokémon> or <Pokémon>... Which do you think I should raise, <Player>?"
"Oh, so my <Pokémon> is better! Okay, I'll do that! Thanks for teaching me!"
Lass Layla
"Hello, <Player>... Um, you've probably already forgotten about someone like me... ...But that doesn't matter if you could give me advice... I can't decide on the one kind of Pokémon I should raise… I've narrowed the field to the Pokémon <Pokémon> and <Pokémon>, but that's where I became stuck... <Player>, you probably don't want to bother, but please decide for me."
"But will a wild <Pokémon> even pay attention to me? I will try! But will I even be able to catch one... No! I'll do my best! Thank you!"
School Kid Sonny
"<Player>, hello! I have a question I wanted to ask. I'm in a dilemma over whether I should raise one <Pokémon> or <Pokémon>. Which Pokémon do you think will be stronger?"
"<Pokémon> is your choice? Okay, I got it! I'll go catch a strong <Pokémon> right away! See you again!"
School Kid Macy
"Oh, <Player>! I'm so glad to see you! I was about to go looking for you! Can you decide what kind of Pokémon I should use? For instance... How about the Pokémon <Pokémon> and <Pokémon>? Which one do you think would be better?"
"<Pokémon>? That's great! Knowing that you made the decision, <Player>, I won't be so upset if I lose. Okay, I'll look to you for advice again. Bye!"
Triathlete Donte
"If it isn't <Player>! How's it going? I'm busy again as always! I want to do good with Pokémon, too, but I haven't been able to decide which Pokémon I should use. You know how <Pokémon> look strong? But <Pokémon> are tough to ignore. <Player>, give me some of your good advice! Which one'd be good for me?"
"Okay, gotcha. I'll find time somehow and catch me that <Pokémon> you recommended. I'm glad I met a good mentor in you. Thanks! See you around!"
Triathlete Amira
"Oh! Yay, it's <Player>! I didn't waste any time boasting to my friends about meeting you! I need to tap your mind again today. It's an easy one for you! Drum roll, please! The question I have is... If I were to raise a Pokémon, and the choices were one <Pokémon> or <Pokémon>, which should it be?"
"Ahhh! <Pokémon>, you say! Thanks for a most cool answer! I guess that's about all I wanted to ask you today. Let's meet here again, okay? Thanks!"
Beauty Kali
"Oh, is it you, <Player>? I'm delighted to see you again! Ever since I became your apprentice, my confidence has been blooming. I think I'm ready to raise a Pokémon of my own! <Player>, may I impose on you to choose which Pokémon I should raise? The choices are the Pokémon <Pokémon> or <Pokémon>... Which Pokémon is right for me?"
"One <Pokémon> it is! I will find one right away! Thank you, <Player>. I hope I can count on you again. Please take care!"
Gentleman Arturo
"Hm? You appear to be <Player>... But are you really real? No, no, if you are real, it's fine. Incidentally, I would like to obtain your advice. It's about the Pokémon I am to use. If the choices are the Pokémon <Pokémon> and <Pokémon>, which is more worthy of me?"
"<Pokémon>? Are you certain? I see. If that's the case, that's fine. I thank you for your time. I do hope it is something even I can handle with aplomb. Let us meet again!"
Aroma Lady Annie
"Eek! <Player>! I met you again! I... I'm overjoyed! Oh-oh-oh, I know! I shouldn't pass up this opportunity! May I ask a huge favor, <Player>? Please choose a Pokémon for me! Please decide which would be better, <Pokémon> or <Pokémon>!"
"Wow! You decided for me! One <Pokémon> is what I'll raise to the best of my ability. I hope you'll be willing to teach me some more another time."
Black Belt Tyrese
"Oh, hi, <Player>... I have this horrible headache... I must've worried too much about the kind of Pokémon I should raise. So, things being this way, I need you to decide for me. <Player>, if I had to choose between the Pokémon <Pokémon> and <Pokémon>, which should it be?"
"Hm, one <Pokémon>, all right. I'll go look for one when I get better. I hope I can keep hitting you up for help like this."
Guitarist Lamont
"Oh, wow, if it isn't <Player>! What should I do? Get your advice? Why not? I'm already talking to you! It's been a long time. Let me break the ice. I'm also looking for advice! Are you receiving me? You are receiving me! My Pokémon--which should I use? It's either <Pokémon> or <Pokémon>. Which do you choose?"
"If that <Pokémon> is the best, I'll do as you suggest! Well, <Player>, I have to roam free, but don't you forget about me. See you again, my smart friend!"
Hiker Dillen
"Hey, hey! My mentor, <Player>! Hello, I've been looking for you for some more of your sage advice! Which kind of Pokémon would be right for me, one <Pokémon> or <Pokémon>? Don't be shy now. Let's blurt it out!"
"Uh-huh, one <Pokémon> it is! OK, A-OK! I'll get one in a Ball, like, cram! All right, thanks, as always! Adios!"
Ruin Maniac Dante
"Er... Um... <Player>...? Please, don't look at me that way. I'm getting all flustered... I... I need your advice. I... I'm really embarrassed, but I can't decide which Pokémon to use. If the choices were <Pokémon> or <Pokémon>, which would be better?"
"Oh... Okay! I'll do my best with one <Pokémon>. I hope I can do my best without getting all flustered. Thank you, <Player>. If we meet again, I hope you will be as helpful."
Fisherman Dallas
"<Player>, listen! Big news! I caught a mirage Pokémon! Of course I'm lying! Wahahaha! This is no lie, though. I'm not very good at catching Pokémon. So, how about deciding for me which kind of Pokémon I should catch, master? Which would be better? <Pokémon> or <Pokémon>?"
"Okay, so it's <Pokémon> you chose? I'll grab the other kind, then! Just kidding! I'll obey your teaching, master! Thanks, master! I hope you'll keep teaching me!"

"A-H-O-Y! And that spells ahoy! The rappin' Sailor am I! Surely you remember who am I? Today, I have a Pokémon question that begs your suggestion! I have the choice between this <Pokémon> and <Pokémon>, you see. Which is the one to catch for me?"

Asking about which moves should their Pokémon learn
Bug Catcher Alann
"Waaah! Oh, <Player>! Snivel... Hiccup... I have a dilemma! I can't decide on a move for my <Pokémon>... Please, please, <Player>. Can you decide for me? For my <Pokémon>, which move would be the better choice: <Move> or <Move>?"
"<Move>? Waaaaah! Oh! I'm so sorry, <Player>! You've made me so happy by deciding the move, I'm crying... Snivel... Thank you so much!"
Youngster Lionel
"Yay! Hi, <Player>! I need your advice again! I want to teach my <Pokémon>a cool move. I like either of the moves <Move> or <Move>. What's your recommendation?"
"<Move> is better? I guess so! Okay, I'll go with that! If we meet here again, please teach me something else, teacher!"
Lass Layla
"Ohhh, <Player>... I'm hopeless, no, really! I've decided to raise a Pokémon, but now I can't even decide what move I should let it learn... I know that it doesn't mean anything to you, <Player>. But it means a lot to me... Please, <Player>, could you choose a move for my <Pokémon>? If you could even choose between <Move> and <Move>…"
"I understand! But will it even be willing to learn <Move> for me... No! I'll do my best! Thank you!"
School Kid Sonny
"<Player>, hello! It's about my <Pokémon>, but I'm worried about its moves. You see, it's the moves <Move>and <Move>. Which is stronger and better for my <Pokémon>?"
"<Move> is your choice? Okay, I got it! I'll go teach <Move> to my Pokémon right away! See you again!"
School Kid Macy
"Oh, <Player>! I was just hoping to see you, too! I was wondering what move would be suitable for my <Pokémon>. I can't decide, so can you decide for me instead? For instance... How about the moves <Move> and <Move>? Which one would be better?"
"<Move>? That's great! Knowing that you made the decision, <Player>, I won't be so upset if I lose. Okay, I'll look to you for advice again. Bye!"
Triathlete Donte
"How could things be this busy? Hey, if it isn't <Player>! How's it going? Since I got up this morning, I've done my jogging, swimming, and cooking! You wouldn't believe how busy I am! I can't even decide what move my <Pokémon> should learn! <Move> looks good, huh? But <Move>'s also decent. <Player>, give me some of your good advice! Which move'd be good for me?"
"Okay, gotcha. I'll make room in my schedule and teach that move. I'm glad I met a good mentor in you. Thanks! See you around!"
Triathlete Amira
"Oh! Lucky! I met you again, <Player>! I need to tap your mind again today. Drum roll, please! The question I have is... For my <Pokémon>, which is the move best suited, <Move> or <Move>?"

Gentleman Arturo
"Hm? You appear to be <Player>... But are you really real? Perhaps you're one of those popular mimics? No, no, if you are real, it's fine. No need to be upset, I assure you! Incidentally, I would like to obtain your advice. It's about my <Pokémon>. Which move would be better for it to use, <Move> or <Move>?"

Black Belt Tyrese
"Gahack! Gaah! Oh, <Player>... I have this lousy cold, I do... I want to pick a move for my Pokémon, but I'm not up to it... So, things being this way, I need you to decide for me. <Player>, if I had to choose between <Move> and <Move> for my <Pokémon>, which would it be?"
"Hm, <Move>, all right. Cough! I'll go teach it when I get better. I hope I can keep hitting you up for help like this."

Hiker Dillen
"Hola, <Player>, bueno! I'm hoping for some more of your sage advice today! What would be the best move for my <Pokémon>? It should be something that'll let me win just like that! Would it be <Move>? Or <Move>?"
"Uh-huh, <Move> it is! Si, bueno! I'll get it taught, like, ka-blam! All right, thanks, as always! Adios!"
Ruin Maniac Dante
"Er... Um... <Player>...? Please, don't look at me that way. I'm getting all flustered... I... I need your advice. I... I'm really embarrassed, but I can't decide what move I should teach my Pokémon. It's for my <Pokémon>. If the choices were <Move> or <Move>, which would be better?"
"Oh... Okay! I'll try that <Move>. I hope I can teach that move... This is so nerve-racking... Thank you, <Player>. If we meet again, I hope you will be as helpful."
Fisherman Dallas
"<Player>, it's completely wild! My Pokémon! It learned six moves! Of course I'm lying! Wahahaha! This is no lie, though. I'm not very good at choosing moves for my Pokémon. So, how about deciding for me which kind of move I should teach? <Move>or <Move>--which would go with my <Pokémon> best?"
"Okay, so it's <Move> you chose? I'll choose another move, then! Just kidding! I'll obey your teaching, master! Thanks, master! I hope you'll keep teaching me!"
Sailor Frank
"A-H-O-Y! And that spells ahoy! The rappin' Sailor am I! I'm always with it, don't ask me why. Today, I have a move question that begs your suggestion! <Move> and <Move> are the moves. What would be the best for my <Pokémon> so it grooves?"

Asking about Held Items for their Pokémon
Bug Catcher Alann
"Sigh... Sob... Oh, <Player>! I'm all tangled up in a dilemma that I can't decide. I can't decide what I should make my <Pokémon> hold. Please tell me, <Player>. What item should I make it hold?"

Lass Layla
"Hello, <Player>... I'm sorry to disturb you, but I have something else I wanted to ask you. I don't think I'm good enough to win matches on my own, so I'm thinking of making my <Pokémon> hold an item. But I don't know what would be good. <Player>, please, could you decide for me?"

Since you already gave me advice, how about seeing this to the end? What would be good? I want to make my <Pokémon> hold something."

"Okay, gotcha. I'll find time somehow and find that <Item> you recommended. I'm glad I met a good mentor in you. Thanks! See you around!"

Asking about which Pokémon should be their team lead
Bug Catcher Alann
"Waah, <Player>! I have a dilemma, sob... I want to begin battling other people, but I don't know what to do. How should I line up my Pokémon so they'll be at their strongest? Please tell me, <Player>. If you were me, which of these Pokémon would you send out first?"

"Hello, <Player>... I'm sorry to bug you, but I'm hopeless... Even when... Even when I win, I don't have anything special to say... I know that it doesn't mean anything to you, <Player>. But it means a lot to me... Please, <Player>, what should I say if I win a battle?"
"<Phrase> That's inspired... Uh... Is it okay for someone like me to even say that? No! I'll do my best! <Player>, thank you so much for putting up with me for so long... I promise to do my best from now on. I'm sure you'll quickly forget about someone like me, but let's meet somewhere again!"
School Kid Sonny
"<Player>, hello! My Pokémon and I are ready for anything, except for one thing. I think it would be good if I had something to shout when I win. Could you think up something good to say?"
"<Phrase> ...Cool! I will use that! I'm going out to battle all over the place. Who knows, I may even get to battle you one day, <Player>. Next time, let's meet at a place of battle!"
School Kid Macy
"Oh, <Player>. There's something I want you to hear. I know that I don't always sound nice or polite... When I win a battle, I think I come across as being arrogant. I don't want people to dislike me, so I want to say something nice to someone I beat. But I can't think of anything good! Could you think something up for me?"
"<Phrase> Not bad! Yup, that's what I'll go with! I'm going to hit the road and do what I can with what you taught me in my head and heart. I'm sorry that I've been so pushy with you! Next time, we battle, okay? See you!"
Triathlete Donte
"Oh, I can't get over how busy I am! Oh, hey, I was looking for you, <Player>. Are you well as usual? Things haven't changed for me at all. I've got running, fighting, and mapping to do. Why am I so busy? But even though I'm busy, it'd be rude to just turn on my heels and walk away from a win without saying a word. So, what would be a cool saying to underline my coolness when I'm done and walking away? <Player>, help me!"
"<Phrase> Okay, gotcha. I can find time to say that! Honestly, I'm glad I met a good mentor like you. I'm going to make time somehow so I can get into battling. Thanks for everything, <Player>! We have to battle, you and me, one day! I lucked out again!"
Triathlete Amira
"<Player>! Am I glad to see you! Like usual, I need your advice! Drum roll, please! The last question I have is... If I win a battle and want to end it with a cool flourish, what should I say?"
"<Phrase> That... That's fabulous! It's dignified and cool! I claim it! ...Listen, I think I'm getting decent at this, huh? So, I'm thinking of challenging other Trainers from now on. <Player>, your advice really helped me. Maybe one day, there'll be a time when we battle! Thank you for everything!"
Beauty Kali
"Oh, <Player>. I'm so glad I met you! I no longer have any concerns with regard to my Pokémon. It's myself that worries me... Do you know how a Trainer says a few things upon winning a battle? Definitely, I wish I could do that, too! Please, what should I say when I win a battle?"
"<Phrase> Ah! That saying! It refreshes me and makes me feel reborn! I must use that right away! And now, I must take my leave, <Player>... I will go out to battle many others, but never will I forget your teachings. Perhaps one day... Farewell!"
Gentleman Arturo
"Hm? You appear to be <Player>... But are you really? Perhaps a clever <Player> Doll? Oh, no, no, no, don't worry! If you really are real, please forget about my rudeness. No need to be so angry. All I wish for is more of your fine advice. It concerns a saying. More precisely, what should I say if I win a battle?"
"<Phrase> ... ... ... ... ... ... When I win a match... <Phrase> ...Are you serious? I see. If you are serious, that's fine. I thank you for your time. I do hope even I will be able to put that saying to good use. I seem to have run dry on what advice I need. I do believe it's high time I bid you farewell and strike out on my own. Thank you, my mentor! I apologize for my skepticism!"
Aroma Lady Annie
"Eek! I spotted <Player>! I... I'm overjoyed to see you! Oh-oh-oh! There's something I just had to ask you! A little while ago, I won a battle. That part was giddying! But it made me so overjoyed that I choked up and couldn't say a thing! So now, <Player>, please, I want you to think up an exit line for when I win!"
"<Phrase> Waaaaah! I'm going to say that?! I... I'm delirious with joy! Th-th-thank you! I have nothing left to regret now! I'm going to travel now and battle all sorts of people. Everything, I owe it to you, <Player>. Really, really, thank you! I've got to go now, but let's meet in battle one day!"
Black Belt Tyrese
"<Player>, I'm finished... My nose won't stop dripping... I was trying to think up something cool to say when I win a battle. It inspired me so much, it made me cry, and now my nose won't stop running... So, things being this way, I need you to decide for me, <Player>. When I win a battle, what should I say?"
"<Phrase> ... ... ...That's good. No, it's awe inspiring! It's bringing fresh tears to my eyes! But in spite of my tears and runny nose, I will use that saying! I'm plumb out of things to ask you, <Player>. From now on, we're rivals! Thanks for everything!"
Guitarist Lamont
"Oh, yeah, <Player>! I found you again today! What should I do? Ask you again? Why not? I'm already asking you! Anyways, <Player>... Are you receiving me? You are receiving me! I need some more advice for me! It's about what I should yell. Something cool to holler when a battle ends well. Come on, I wanna hear you say it!"
"<Phrase> All right, all right! I'll use that because it's so tight! I'm out of things to ask you. Waving bye is all that's left to do. But maybe one day we'll meet, with one destined to go down in defeat. But, it really is time to say farewell. Well, <Player>, I have to roam free, but don't you forget about me! Take care, <Player>! Love ya!"
Hiker Dillen
"Hola, bueno! <Player>! You know, I'm getting the itch to roam and battle where I may. But before I do, I want your advice once again, please! If I were to win a battle, what would be a good boast I could say to my fallen Trainer opponent?"
"<Phrase> Uh-huh, that's sweet! Si, bueno! I'll try saying that, like, ham! And now, it's time to say good-bye! Thanks for all sorts of things! Give me a battle one day, OK? Adios!"
Ruin Maniac Dante
"Er... Um... <Player>... Please, don't look at me that way. You're making me all nervous. I... I need your advice again. I'll make it my last, though... It's really embarrassing to ask, but what if I win a battle? What should I say?"
"<Phrase> Oh... Okay! I'll try to say that! I might be too nervous to say it... Thank you, <Player>. I have to say good-bye now. I'll obey all that you've taught me, <Player>, and do the best I can."
Fisherman Dallas
"<Player>, there's big trouble! When I win a battle, I brag about it for an hour at least! Of course I'm lying! Wahahaha! This is no lie, though. I'm not very good at chatting. So, how about deciding for me what I should say after winning a battle, master?"
"<Phrase> That's what I should say, huh? Then, I'll stay away from that! Just kidding! I'll obey your teaching, master! Thanks for teaching me all this time, master! I'm finally understanding what being a Trainer is about. I'm going to go out and win battles against any Trainer. Maybe it'll be you one day, master! That's all! Farewell, my master!"
Sailor Frank
"A-H-O-Y! And that spells ahoy! The rappin' Sailor am I! This will be my last question, don't you cry! It's a saying question that begs your suggestion! If I win a match, what can I say in a real cool way?"
"<Phrase> Perfect! That's what I'll use. I was right to make you choose! And now, I think it'd be best, if I were to fly the nest! Thanks for all you taught me. I'll be off on a battle spree! B-O-N-V-O-Y-A-G-E! And that spells bon voyage, to you this is my homage!"
