Bianca (Japanese: ベル Bel) is a Pokémon Trainer from the Unova region.

She is a rival character in Pokémon Black and White and an Assistant Pokémon Professor to Professor Juniper in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2.

In the games


Pokémon Black and White

Like the player, Bianca lives in the starting town of Nuvema Town, and is also a childhood friend of the player (and soon-to-be rival). She is described as being 'flighty' by Professor Juniper and Cheren; though she also has a strong side, as shown when she embarks on a Pokémon journey despite her father's strong opposition. This is emphasized in Nimbasa City, where her father disallows her to become a Pokémon Trainer. With the help of Nimbasa City Gym Leader Elesa, Bianca convinces her father to let her follow her dream.

In keeping with the theme of truth and ideals often seen in Black and White, Bianca represents those who pursue truth—this is highlighted when N comments that Bianca had to face the truth that not everyone can become stronger. She often admits that she is not a strong Trainer compared to the player and Cheren; and thinks about what she can do in life (whereas Cheren is seen to ponder about what he should do). Later in the game, she decides to research and learn more about Pokémon with Juniper.

Like the player and Cheren, Bianca receives a starter Pokémon as a gift from Professor Juniper at the start of the game; she chooses the Pokémon with a type disadvantage to the player's starter Pokémon. The player encounters Bianca on several occasions, where she often challenges the player to a battle.

After the player has defeated Alder, she will be around to battle them on weekends in Nuvema Town.

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

In Black 2 and White 2, Bianca appears as Professor Juniper's assistant, giving the player his or her starter Pokémon. She, after not seeing him for two years, will also be reunited with Cheren in Aspertia City.

She appears several times throughout the game, generally running errands for Professor Juniper, such as looking for Tynamo in Chargestone Cave. She will accompany the player as a tag partner on the player's first visit to Reversal Mountain while she investigates the Pokémon Heatran.

She can be called on the Xtransceiver to figure out the player's current Friendship level with Pokémon in his or her party. After the player has defeated the Champion, she can also figure out whether a Pokémon in the player's party has reached its effective cap in effort values for any stat (252), or overall (510).

Pokémon Black and White

Nuvema Town
  • Before choosing starter
"Am I a little late again? So-oooo-orry!"
"I know. Sorry, <player>. Sorry, Cheren."
"So, where are the Pokémon? They were delivered to <player>'s house, so <player> gets first pick."
  • If talked to before choosing starter
"Ooh! What kind of Pokémon could they be?"
  • After choosing starter
"OK, I'll take this Pokémon! Cheren, that one's yours!"
"Everyone has chosen a Pokémon! ...So that's that! Hey, I know! Let's have a Pokémon battle!"
  • Before battle
"Don't be a worrywart! These little ones are weak, like you said. We have to let them battle so they'll get stronger. It's settled, <player>! Get ready for a Pokémon battle!"
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"Eek! Ouch! I won't let you get away with that!"
  • When defeated
"The Pokémon on both sides did their best!"
  • If the player is defeated
"Wha... I got so absorbed in having my Pokémon use moves, I won before even realizing..."
  • After being defeated
"Wow... <player>, you're gonna be an awesome Trainer someday, I can tell! No doubt!"
"Wh-whoa! What happened?!"
"Wow! Pokémon are amaaaaazing!! So little, but so strong! I'm so glad that I get to have a Pokémon! ...Oh. Um, sorry about your room, <player>."
"Hey, Cheren! How about you battle, too? With all you know, I'm sure you can battle without turning the room into a disaster area like I did!"
"Oh! I'd better come, too!"
"Well, um... We can clean up..."
"Oh! Wait! I've gotta go home first."
"Thanks for having us over!"
  • Bianca's house
"But, I'm... I'm a good Trainer who got a Pokémon and everything! I can totally go on an adventure!"
"Oh... It's OK. ...It's fine! I'll be waiting for you in front of the lab, OK?"
  • If talked to near Juniper's lab
"...That's a secret, OK?"
  • Juniper Pokémon Lab
"OK! I mean... Yes, professor!"
"S-since the professor asked us, it's OK to go on an adventure, right? I can explore and maybe find out what I want to do in life. I think I'd like that."
"For some reason, my heart is pounding, <player>. What are you and <starter> going to do?"*
  • Outside
"Heeey! <Player>, wait up!"
"Th-thank you so much!"
"Let's go, let's go! <Player>, hurry and come too, OK?"
"<Player>... It's this way!"
"Hey, <player>! Let's all take our first step on Route 1 together!"
"One, two!"
Route 1
"Oh! I wonder what will happen! Isn't this so exciting?!"
"I think I'll go, too. I'm looking forward to the next town so I can go shopping for Poké Balls!"
"Wait a minute! Hey, listen! <Player>, Cheren, I thought of something fun!"
"Would you just listen a sec? Seriously! Why don't we see who can catch the most Pokémon? The person carrying the most Pokémon, including the one received from Professor Juniper, is the winner!"
"Me and <Bianca's starter> will do the best for sure!"
"How about it, <player>? Do you want to compare which one of us has the most Pokémon with them?"
Yes, if the player has two or more Pokémon: "Wow, [number]?! That's awesome! Are you excited to have that many Pokémon with you?"
Yes, if the player has only one Pokémon: "What? What? What? You only have <player's starter>?! If you don't catch any Pokémon, won't <starter> get lonely?"
No: "Hmm... Guess I'll be waiting here, then."
  • On Xtransceiver
"Oh! Professor!"
"OK! The Pokémon Center, right!"
Accumula Town
"Ooh, wait for me!"
  • If spoken to her before speaking to the Nurse
"All you need to do is give her your Pokémon, <player>"
  • After healing Pokémon
"Professor... It says "Someone's PC" on the screen. Who is Someone?"
"Ooh! What should I buy? Potions and Poké Balls are definitely important. Ummm...thinking..."
Route 2
  • Before battle
"Ohhhhh! Hi, <player>!"
"Hey, listen! Let's have a Pokémon battle! Pleeeease? The Pokémon I caught have become a little stronger! Ready or not, here I come!"
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"B-both my Pokémon and I are going to give it our all!"
  • After sending out last Pokémon
"OK! This little one is up next!"
  • Last Pokémon low on health
"Uh-oh... Am I in trouble?!"
  • When defeated
"Aww... I couldn't win..."
  • After being defeated
"Woo-hoo! You are a tough cookie, <player>. I'm gonna work hard on training my Pokémon so we won't lose anymore! OK, bye-bye!"
"Hi, <player>! Are you looking for the mysterious Pokémon, too?"
"I'm just really, really wondering how showing dreams works..."
"Hey! Did you hear a sound coming from the other side of that wall? Come on! Let's go see!"
"Oh! Wait!"
"Huh? Who are you?! What are you doing?"
"You're kicking a Pokémon to make it give off Dream Mist? That's mean! Why? You're Trainers too, right?"
"Whaaat! Don't hurt <player>!"
"Knock it off!"
"...What was that just now? That person called Ghetsis appeared all over the place, and it wasn't real, right?! ...Could it have been a dream?"
"And that Pokémon..."
"Oh, Fennel. Well, you see, Munna was here... But Team Plasma and Munna... And Musharna came... And it showed us something like a dream? And then, Team Plasma..."
"Phew. How random was that? <Player>, why don't you go to Fennel's house? Me? Well, I'm going to go look for the Pokémon we saw just now."
Route 3
"Hey! Where were those people headed?"
"Oh, seriously! They run so fast!"
"It'll be OK. It'll be OK. Don't cry."
"You have to hear this! Those people stole this girl's Pokémon!"
  • If spoken to
"Please <player>. Team Plasma took that Pokémon. Get it back!"
  • After retrieving the girl's Pokémon
"<player>, thank you so much! The two of you got her Pokémon back! I'm lucky to have friends like you two!"
"Ooh! Those are Heal Balls! They completely heal the captured Pokémon on the spot! How sweet of you! I'm going to see this girl on her way, so see you later, <player>. Bye-bye!"
Nacrene City
"Oh, hi, <player>! What's everybody doing here?"
"Oh! Oh, <player>! Take this with you! Fennel gave me this Dowsing Machine to give you. Now what did she tell me? Um... You can use the Dowsing Machine to find places where items are hidden. So you can find stuff you can't even see!"
"Hey, wait for me!"
  • Inside the museum
"I won't forgive those thieves!"
Castelia City
  • At dock
"<player>, is there anything we can do? My Munna... Team Plasma took it..."
"Oh, Munna, I can't believe it. Here I am, a Trainer, and I can't even protect my own Pokémon... I'm sorry..."
  • Outside Team Plasma's hideout
"W-wait! <player>! You come, too!"
  • Inside Team Plasma's hideout
"T-thank you! Munny, I'm so glad to see you again!"
"It's just... I'm... I'm so happy that my Munna is safe."
"It's OK. Thank you, Iris! No one was hurt. More than anything, I got my darling Pokémon back again!"
"Oh, it would be sensational to look around Castelia City, but..."
"Whaa... Waait!"
  • On Xtransceiver
"Hey there! Where are you now? Could you do me a favor? Let's have a Pokémon battle! Iris has trained me, and I've become a little stronger. I should be angle to protect my own Pokémon now. Let's meet at the gate to Route 4! OK, see you later!"
  • Castelia Gate
"Hello, <player>! You remember the promise you made on the Xtransceiver, right?"
"So let's get right to our Pokémon battle! But, before that..."
"They say we can have a Pokémon battle in the gate as long as we're careful not to break the electric bulletin board."
"I'm the new and improved version of me! It's gonna go great this time!"
"Lets start out Pokémon battle again!"
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"My Pokémon and me! We trained and got tough!"
  • Last Pokémon low on health
"Ooohhh... Am I in trouble?"
  • Being defeated
"I trained with Iris... But I still couldn't win..."
  • After being defeated
"I'll never be a strong Trainer like you or Cheren or Iris, but... You know since we left Nuvema Town, I've met a lot of people and I've been thinking about what I want to do in life! When you look at it that way, Pokémon have given me a lot of new experiences. Having my Pokémon stolen was just really hard, and I felt unsure... Still, I gotta say I'm really glad I went! I've learned so much on this journey. And I also learned that being with Pokémon is really, really important! OK, well, I hope to see you again soon! Bye-bye, <player>!"
Nimbasa City
"<player>! Know what? The professor told me Nimbasa City has a lot of things to see and do--the amusement park, big stadium, small court, and the battle subway! I'm going to go see the Pokémon Musical! See you later!"
"Ooh, <player>! Are you interested in musicals? Then, let's go in together!"
  • Inside Pokémon Musical
"A. Mazing. Isn't it?"
"Oh, I don't know what to do! Doing the musical stuff would be totally cool, but there's other stuff I wanna do. OK, that's it! I made up my mind! I'm going to see the sights in Nimbasa! See ya, <player>!"
  • After running into her dad
"Daddy?! What are you doing here?"
"No way! I'm going to keep traveling with <player> and my Pokémon!"
"Is that so? Then, how about you do things your way, and I'll do things mine!"
"Please! I know there's gonna be painful stuff like you're worrying about! I know! Really, I get it! But, like, listen... There'll be tons of nice people, too. Know what else? Since I've been traveling with Pokémon, I've already gotten tougher, I can totally tell. So... please?"
"Papa, I'll come home after I find out what I really want to do!"
"She's so cool! Hah! I want to be a totally cool woman like Elesa! Mm. I wonder how I'll get there. Well, before that, I guess I need to discover what I really want to do! See you later, <player>!"
Route 6
  • Before battle
"<Player>!! Guess what, guess what?"
"Hey, were you at the Gym just now? Oh, hey! That's Driftveil's Gym Badge! Oh, that's totally cool. That's amazing. No, no, no! I can't get distracted being all impressed with your shiny new Badge! I'm also a Trainer! At times like this you battle, right?"
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"My Pokémon can take that! I'm sure! Well, probably..."
  • Last Pokémon low on health
"Ummm... This is kinda bad, right?"
  • Being defeated
"Aww. I lost."
  • After being defeated
"I haven't had a Pokémon battle with you in a while, <player>. You've become totally strong, huh? I'm not that strong so I don't know how to say it, but I think you're way tuned in to how your Pokémon feel! Oh, you know what! I want to share this HM with you, <player>!"
"My papa gave it to me after he tried to take me home that time. I'm sure it's so I can come home anytime he wants, though... Oh, hey, I have to share this with Cheren, too... See you, <player>! Bye-bye!"
Chargestone Cave
  • Near the entrance
"Guess what!"
"<Player>, did you know this? The floating stones move when you touch them! Right, Professor?"
  • Midway through
"Know what, <player>? Pokémon are mysterious! I wonder why these amazing little guys stay by our sides."
  • Near the exit
"<Player>! Just a little farther to Mistralton City!"
"Umm, <player>! I'm gonna go with Professor Juniper now 'cause I'm her bodyguard!"
Icirrus City
"Hey, hey. Cheer up, Cheren... Isn't it nice to see everyone?! <Player>! Know what? This time, I'll go to the Pokémon Fan Club. I'm really searching... for what I want to do and what I can do!"
"Who? Us? I'm Bianca, and this is Cheren..."
"Whoooooa! Whoa. Wh-what should I do? F-for now, I have to go to Dragonspiral Tower... OK! I'm heading north!"
Dragonspiral Tower
  • After Team Plasma invades the tower
"Hey, <player>!"
"Nice to meet you, Professor! Thanks to Professor Juniper, I got to go on a journey and start figuring out possibilities for my life. I'm very, very grateful to her!"
"Professor, what's the Dragonspiral Tower?"
"Don't worry! <player> and Cheren are both really, really strong, and they've beaten Team Plasma before. But... I'm not all that strong, actually. I admit it. I'm not very strong, so I was thinking... It would be nice if, maybe, I could... Stay here and be your bodyguard?"
  • After Team Plasma leaves
"Huh? There are two legendary Dragon-type Pokémon?"
"H-huh?! Isn't it dangerous to bring back a Pokémon that powerful?"
"<Player>, this has turned into a big deal. So confusing... I dunno what to do... Are you gonna go to the Relic Castle, <player>? Past Route 4, in the Desert Resort... I hear that's where the Relic Castle is..."
Nacrene City
"Whoa. Isn't that the... stone... found in the Desert Resort?"
"But, you know, we're lucky... 'Cause what if Team Plasma, like, noticed that old stone that time..."
"Ooh. Sounds real serious... Um, that's about all I got out of it. <player>, do you know Opelucid City? When you leave from Icirrus City and, like, cross the Tubeline Bridge, it's on the other side. Umm... I'm not that great with directions, so if you need more, check your Town Map, OK?"
Route 8
  • Before battle
"<Player>! As I've been traveling lately, I've been thinking about things. Things like what I can do with my life, and what I want to do, but... I'm thinking how cool it would be to be a model like Elesa. And then, how cool it would be to research on Pokémon like Professor Juniper... If that's what I want to do, I'm gonna have to know a lot about Pokémon. Sooooo...would you please battle me?"
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"Oh! So, you chose that move!"
  • Last Pokémon low on health
"Every time I watch my Pokémon battle, it ends like this..."
  • Being defeated
"The Pokémon on both sides tried sooo hard, didn't they?"
  • After being defeated
"Yep! <Player>, you're amazing! I'm really, really, really impressed, and that makes me want to give this to you!"
"In Castelia City, my precious Pokémon was stolen by Team Plasma. So I really, really understand! If Team Plasma forces everyone to liberate their Pokémon, there will be nothing but sad people! <player>! Stop Team Plasma! Don't allow Pokémon to be stolen from trainers who love them! I think that's the truth—or ideal—that you've been pursuing, <player>..."
"Oh dear, here I've come all this way, and I'm afraid I'm bothering you when you're going through so much. All I wanted was to help you relax, <player>. Knowing you, you'll be fine! Definitely! You'll totally be fine! I guarantee it! Anyway, you know what I mean... Yeah... So, Bye-bye!"
Route 10
"<Player>... There's not much I can do to help you, but I want you to have these!"
"Still, it's kind of funny. Everyone's so different."
"Come on, Cheren. Could you smile just for once? Taking everything so seriously all the time isn't going to change anything. You know... Since we've met our Pokémon and walked the same roads together, a lot has happened... We've all changed a lot! We found out that the things we want to do and the things we can do are different for each of us, right? That's what's made our journey so worth it. Somehow, all this just makes me happy."
"He's gone."
"<Player>! Me, too! I'll do my best to help if I can! So... Umm... I wish I could say something, like, totally inspiring, you know? Umm... OK... Best foot forward!"
Nuvema Town (post-game)
  • After defeating Ghetsis
"...I'm sorry. By the time I went to get the Striaton City Gym Leaders, everything was over..."
"...Ghetsis? The Shadow Triad?"
"You know what? You know what! I'm gonna go to Black CityB/White ForestW!"
"Wow, the National Pokédex... It looks like there are tons of Pokémon I don't know yet! Oh! Ooh! I want to show Mom and Dad my Pokédex! I gotta go! Let's meet again somewhere. OK?!"
  • After defeating Alder
"Professor Juniper is letting me help out. When I was looking at my Pokédex, I realized something. I met so many Pokémon during my journey. I just want to learn more about the little darlings!"
"Oh yeah! That's right. <Player>, do you know about massive outbreaks of Pokémon?"
Yes:"I knew you'd know, <player>! I'm sure you also know that lots of a certain Pokémon appear in the grass all over, and that if you look at the electric signs in the Route gates, you can see where the mass outbreaks are happening in the Unova region!"
No: "Tee-hee! OK, then, I'll tell you about it. First of all, lots of certain Pokémon appear in the grass all over. If you look at the electric signs in the Route gates, you can see where the mass outbreaks are happening in the Unova region! Isn't that amazing!"
"I have to study lots of Pokémon research, but I don't mind. This is the answer I found during my adventure! It's actually a lot of fun! And I have an idea! Every now and then, come have a Pokémon battle with me, OK? 'Cause by doing that, I'll learn a lot more about Pokémon!"
  • Before battle (weekends only)
"Oh, <player>! Would you have a Pokémon battle with me today?"
"Oh, so you will have a Pokémon battle with me, then?"
Yes:"Great! <Player>! We're battling indoors, so don't get too worked up!"
No: "Whaaaaat! Wait... No, I'm pretty disappointed..."
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"I see... You choose that move?!"
  • Sending out last Pokémon
"S-s-still... That's fine. We're just fine!"
  • Last Pokémon low on health
" a time like this, I am supposed to do...what?"
  • Upon defeat
"Thank you for having a battle with me! I definitely learned something!"
  • After being defeated
"Phew! I'm totally sure, <player>. You're really a strong Trainer. I love your style of Pokémon battling, <player>. Somehow your Pokémon look like they're having so much fun!"
  • After a rematch (one quote at certain day of the week)
Monday:"<Player>, did you know this? If you give a Pokémon called Feebas a Prism Scale and trade it with someone, apparently it evolves. Isn't that amazing? Pokémon sure are mysterious beings, aren't they?"
Tuesday:"<Player>, did you know this? In Pinwheel Forest, there is a rock that's covered in moss. It might be related to the rock, I dunno, but there is a Pokémon that evolves when it levels up in Pinwheel Forest! Pokémon sure are mysterious beings, aren't they?"
Wednesday:"<Player>, did you know this? Deep in Twist Mountain, there's an ice-covered rock. There is a Pokémon that evolves when it levels up near that rock. Pokémon sure are mysterious beings, aren't they?"
Thursday:"<Player>, did you know this? There are Pokémon that evolve when they level up knowing a certain move! Pokémon sure are mysterious beings, aren't they?"
Friday:"<Player>, did you know this? There are Pokémon that evolve when you give them a certain item and they level up at night! Pokémon sure are mysterious beings, aren't they?"

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

Aspertia City
  • Upon meeting the player
"It's sooo pretty! Hey there! Don't you agree? Oh! My name is Bianca! I'm the assistant of the Pokémon Professor--Professor Juniper. By the way, I'm looking for someone. Do you know a person named <player>?" (Regardless of the answer:) "Oh, wait! You're <player>! Wooow! You're ex-act-ly like what I heard! Nice to meet you! I have a really important request to ask you! Will you help us complete the Pokédex?"
No: "N-no way... I-I must have misheard you. Right? This is a very important request. Will you please help us complete the Pokédex?"
Yes: "Oh, wow, thanks! Your support will help Professor Juniper's research move forward! Anyway, filling up the Pokédex is totally fun!"
"OK, then! Ta-daaa! In here is the Pokémon that will be your partner!"
  • After the player has chosen their starter
"Oh, wow! You and Snivy/Tepig/Oshawott are a perfect match! By the way, would you like to give a nickname to the Pokémon you chose?"
No: "Oh, OK, gotcha. You're not going to give it a nickname."
Yes: (After a nickname is input:) "<Starter's nickname>! Is that the nickname you want?"
No: (Repeats the name input and confirmation.)
Yes: "<Starter's nickname>! That is such a great name!"
"Now you've got your Pokémon, so I'll give you this, too--a Pokédex! You want to know what it does? The Pokédex is a high-tech device that automatically records the Pokémon you encounter! So Professor Juniper wants you to carry this Pokédex, visit a lot of places, and meet all the Pokémon in the Unova region!"
  • If the player speaks to Bianca again before battling Hugh
"Still, that Professor Juniper! The normal thing to do is to get an OK before sending someone clear out here, right?"
"It's a Pokédex!"
"Um...who are you again?"
"Well, OK! I don't really get it, but going on a journey is always good! Anyway, I just happen to have another Pokédex on me! It looks like Pokémon distribution has really changed compared to two years ago, so the more, the merrier!"
  • If the player speaks to Bianca before battling Hugh
"Ooh, I just thought of something cool! You both have Pokémon, right? Why don't you have a Pokémon battle?"
  • After the battle between the player and Hugh
"The Pokémon on both sides did their best! But this little one is still weak, so battle with it and make it stronger! All righty, let's go make your Pokémon better at the Pokémon Center! It's like the best place ever for Pokémon who battle and get hurt!"
"The Pokémon Center is the same no matter where you are! Let's go inside!"
"OK! I'll show you around the Pokémon Center!"
"The Pokémon Center heals Pokémon for free! You should bring your Pokémon here anytime they are weak."
"Next, I'll explain the PC!"
"This square thing is a PC! Any Trainer is free to use it! You can deposit Pokémon in it. Also, you can withdraw Pokémon from it! The next thing is over here!"
"This is the Poké Mart! Here you can buy and sell many different items! The Poké Balls you use to capture Pokémon can also be bought at the Poké Mart! Here, <player>, I'll give you some Poké Balls!"
"Next up! I'll show you how to use those Poké Balls! Follow me!"
"Why are there two Town Maps?"
"Aww, you guys! Just watching this makes me happy! C'mon, we're headed for Route 19! I'll teach you how to catch a Pokémon!"
  • At the player's house, after she gives the tutorial on Route 19:
"I was just talking to your mom! She told me an amazing story about Professor Juniper!"
"Heeey!/Yoo-hoo! How was it? How did your Pokémon battle with the Gym Leader go? Oh! If it isn't the Basic Badge! Wow! Amazing! And you just set off on your journey with your Pokémon! You definitely have potential as a Trainer! I'm sure of it! This is from me! It's the TM for the move Return."
"When a Pokémon knows Return, the more it gets along with the Trainer, the more powerful the move is!"
"Still, that Cheren..."
"Oh wow!"
"Wh-What's up?"
"M-me, too!"
"I registered Professor Juniper for you, too!"
"The Cave of Being... I wonder where those three Pokémon — Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf — flew off to? Uxie is a Pokémon that symbolizes knowledge... If you mention a place in Unova where knowledge is gathered, the first thing that comes to mind is Nacrene City's museum... Mesprit is a Pokémon that presides over emotion, right? Celestial Tower's bell stirs emotions... And Azelf is willpower... The desire to see something through... What place could represent that?"
"Route 23's mysterious Pokémon... Just by being near it you can feel some kind of willpower... It's best to go have a look for yourself!"
"Your mom's amazing! It's sweet how she met your dad while working reception at the Pokémon Center. Hee hee! She's taught me a lot!"
"Sometimes, there are mass outbreaks of Pokémon, right? A lot of the exact same Pokémon show up at the same time, and it's such a surprise! Like where were all of you before? If you look at the electronic bulletin boards, you can learn about them!"
"Professor Juniper — I'm talking about Aurea Juniper, mind you... She's researching the origins of Pokémon! It's interesting! Among the Pokémon that exist now, there were some that have been around from the past and some that were discovered recently. By the way, her dad is researching Pokémon distribution and biology!"
Route 19
  • Before the tutorial
"Heeey!/Come on! This way! This kinda reminds me of that day on Route 1. OK, here's how it works. The Pokédex's pages fill up automatically when you meet Pokémon! And when you catch a Pokémon, more detailed information on it is added to the Pokédex! Here, I'll show you how to catch a Pokémon! Starting...NOW!"
  • During the tutorial
"You just have to use a Poké Ball after lowering its HP!"
  • After the tutorial
"What a relief! I caught a Pokémon! Oh! Um... Right. I'll go over the important stuff. First, go find a healthy Pokémon to catch! You need to remember this next bit! It's best to lower the Pokémon's HP before you try to catch it. Use your Pokémon's moves to lower the HP of the Pokémon you want to catch. Making it fall asleep or paralyzing it will make it even easier to catch! You're going to go deliver the Town Map to your friend, right? Continue straight this way to get to Floccesy Town! Bye now! Meet lots of Pokémon and catch a lot of them, OK?"
"Hi, Professor Juniper! It's really interesting over here! There are sooo many Pokémon we couldn't prove were here two years ago!"
"It'll be fine! Cheren's a new Gym Leader, I'm an Assistant Pokémon Professor, and <player> is a new Trainer, but we always have Pokémon by our sides!"
  • After the conversation
"Hey, <player>! Isn't Professor Juniper cool? If you talk to her on the Xtransceiver, she'll evaluate the completeness of your Pokédex or tell you a lot about how Pokémon evolve! And you can call us, too, of course! I'll tell you how well you and your Pokémon are getting along, OK?!"
"Being a Gym Leader is even harder than I imagined."
"The next thing is to make it so you can use the C-Gear. The C-Gear is a cool device for communications, such as Infrared Connection or Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection."
  • Activating the C-Gear
"Check this! The C-Gear was activated, and that screen showed up! If you touch the "?" icon in the bottom-right corner of the C-Gear screen, you can read about the C-Gear. Like, what are you going to do now? You know, there's another Pokémon Gym in Virbank City, which is just past Floccesy Town."
Floccesy Town
  • If the player attempts to go to Route 20
"Heeey!/Hey there!"
"I'm sorry! I forgot to upgrade the Pokédex that I gave you! I'm going to add the Habitat List! It's an amazing feature! I'm just going to borrow your Pokédex for a second!"
"With the Habitat List, you can check which Pokémon are in the area! It's a mode in the Pokédex! To use it, open up the Pokédex and tap the Habitat List button on the lower left of the Touch Screen! Next, pick the area you want to see! You can see all the Pokémon that live in that area. It even tells you which ones you've already caught! Would you like to hear my explanation again?"
No: "I have a tip for you! When you're walking down a path, you'll sometimes see rustling grass! If you go to that spot... Well, I'll let the rest be a surprise! Filling up the Pokédex will make your world bigger! So go to many different places and meet many different Pokémon, OK? See you!"
Castelia Gate
"Heeey! When I saw you in the city, I just had to catch up with you! Here, take this! This is a Dowsing Machine!"
"You can use the Dowsing Machine to find places where items are hidden. It's exciting to find an item while you're looking for a Pokémon. Ooh, good luck!"
"Oh! If you often use the Dowsing Machine, the Habitat List, and so on, why don't you register them? Er... I think it's written in this book. I found it! OK, I'll read it. “You can use the registered item just by pressing the Y button!” See? OK. Bye!"
Route 5
"Heeey! Nice timing! I was wanting to give you this!"
"Ta-da! It's a Hidden Machine, Fly! When you use this move outside of battle, you can go to places you want to go, like a Pokémon Center."
"By the way, <player>, do you know about Hidden Grottoes?"
Yes: "Great! You might find one soon!"
No: "OK! Then I'll explain! Sometimes you can find a grotto among trees, where Pokémon like to hide. That place is called a Hidden Grotto. Makes sense, right?"
"Wait! ... Over there! I heard something from that direction! I have good ears. Hey! Come with me!"
"The sound is coming from somewhere around here. Wow! Here it is! There's a gap, and it looks like we can fit through! C'mon! Let's go have a look!
No: "This is too good to pass up! Let's go in!"
"Hey, a Pokémon! A Pokémon that hides in a place like this might be pretty amazing! Amazing! This is a huge discovery! An incredible find! I'll go check a lot of other trees to see if there are more Hidden Grottoes!
Chargestone Cave
  • Upon the player's arrival
"Heeey!/Hi there! Did you know this? If you push the floating stones, they move! As always, this place is charged with lots of electricity that Pokémon like! The electric charges react from one stone to another, so that's why there are floating stones! You can't push all of them, though. Oh, that's right! I came here to research something! Be seeing you!"
  • Before the player defeats Team Plasma on the Plasma Frigate at Pokémon World Tournament
"The bridge fell apart, but it's being fixed right now!"
  • After defeating Team Plasma on the Plasma Frigate at Pokémon World Tournament
"Know what? I'm here at Professor Juniper's request! I'm researching a Pokémon called Tynamo! But there aren't very many, and they don't seem very strong..."
Mistralton City
"Waaaaaaaaaaait! You guys! Wait, wait, wait, wait! Hff...pff...I want to fly, too! I want to do some research in Reversal Mountain...hff...pff..."
Lentimas Town
"That's true... What could they be planning?"
"I'll be in the volcano just beyond here... I'm going to investigate the rumors I've been hearing about a rare Fire-type Pokémon in Reversal Mountain."
Reversal Mountain
  • Upon meeting up with the player
"Heeey!/Hi there, <player>! Um, you know what? There's something I want to investigate here in Reversal Mountain. But the wild Pokémon here are really tough, and I'm having trouble with them! Could you come with me? Please?"
"Oh! Don't worry! I'll take care of healing your Pokémon, OK? Ready? Let's go!"
  • If the player tries to return to Lentimas Town's side
"Oh! I want to do a little more looking around. Want to split up for now?
No: "OK! Then let's do a little more looking around!"
Yes: "Oh, OK! I want to do a little more investigating about Heatran! Heatran is a very rarely seen Pokémon, so if I find out more about it, Professor Juniper will be really happy! Thanks for helping me! Be careful on your journey!"
  • If the player meets up with her once again
"There's still something I want to look for in Reversal Mountain. Come with me! Don't worry. I'll take care of healing our Pokémon, OK? OK, here we go!"
  • If talked to
"Know what? I didn't know what I was capable of, so I left on a journey to find out!"
  • If talked to again
"I'm... Well, I'm not the toughest Trainer. But I was able to continue my journey because my Pokémon worked so hard for me."
  • If talked to for the third time
"Trying to keep winning against everyone is really hard... But it's easy to keep loving Pokémon, and that makes it all worthwhile."
  • If talked to for the fourth time
"I always want to know more about Pokémon I like! That's why I started working as Professor Juniper's assistant!"
  • If talked to for the fifth time onwards
"Actually, I'm not sure being a professor's assistant is really what I want to do... But when I do the work, I have lots and lots of fun!"
  • Near B1F
"Oh! <Player>! Here! This is the place! Let's look around a little!"
  • B1F
"What is this place? It feels very strange. Could this be the place where Reversal Mountain started from--the lair of the Pokémon Heatran?"
"Heatran is a Pokémon with magma-like blood flowing through it!"
  • Arriving at the exit
"Oh! Undella Town is right through here! I want to keep looking around a little bit. What do you want to do? Should we say bye for now?"
No: "OK, then! Let's go look around a little more!"
Yes: "OK, then! I want to do a little more research about Heatran anyway! Thank you for coming with me! Be careful on the rest of your journey!"
  • If talked to after saying goodbye
"Reversal Mountain... I wonder... Could a Magma Stone be in there? Have you heard of it? They say a Magma Stone was found in a volcano in the distant Sinnoh region. Apparently, it had something to do with Heatran!
Lacunosa Town
  • Upon meeting up with the player
"Hee hee! I used Fly, so it looks like I beat you here. Thanks for your help in Reversal Mountain!"
"What is it?"
  • Inside the old woman's house
"Oh, I've heard that around the Giant Chasm, there have been brief temperature readings of -58° F! That's what Cheren told me, anyway!"
"The Pokémon ate p-people?"
  • Right at the front of the house
"I know... The power to freeze everything around it could even rival the power of the legendary Dragon-type Pokémon."
"Professor, do you think there's a connection between the Pokémon from the old story and the legendary Dragon-type Pokémon?"
"The meteorite?"
"If your theories are true, it should be a really strong Pokémon. What kind of a reason would there be for it to come out only at night? Like, if, like, it doesn't like sunlight or something like that..."
"Sure thing!"
"Oh, just so you know, Opelucid City's mayor, Drayden, wrestles with his Pokémon to toughen them up!"
"Professor Juniper, wait up!"
Giant Chasm
  • After capturing/defeating Kyurem
"<Player>, you're amazing! You've met so many Pokémon!"
"Hey now! Your Pokédex should be pretty full, right? I'm sure Professor Juniper will be really happy if you show her!"
"Still... How many Pokémon could there be in all? I think I'll go back to Nuvema Town and ask Professor Juniper!"
Route 1 (Memory Link)
"I have fond memories of this place... One day... <player's name in B/W>, Cheren, and I all gathered right here and took the first step of our adventure. It's a very special spot."
"Hey, <player>! Let's take our first step on Route 1 together! One, two!"
"Ha ha! That's what I said. Hey, while we're here, have a Pokémon battle with me! Talking about <player's name in B/W> put me in the mood for a Pokémon battle!"
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"S-s-still... That's fine. We're just fine!"
  • Last Pokémon low on health
" a time like this, I am supposed to do...what?"
  • Being defeated
"Thank you for having a battle with me! It was a lot of fun!"
  • After being defeated
"Tee-hee! You're so tough! You're just like <player's name in B/W>! OK! I just have to remember what I felt like back then and work hard, too! Thanks! See you!"
Pokémon World Tournament
  • Before battle (first round)
"A Pokémon battle with you! I feel really excited!"
  • Before battle (second round)
"When I delivered the Pokémon to you in Aspertia City, I never would've imagined then I'd be battling with you here! That's right! Pokémon bring us together like this, don't they?! Isn't it a-MAZ-ing?"
  • Before battle (final round)
"Know what? When I traveled the Unova region, so many things happened to me, but I'm so glad I went on that journey! I met a lot of Pokémon and found what I really wanted to do... It's hard to put into words, but I want to express this feeling through my Pokémon."
  • Being defeated
"Phew! You're really a strong Trainer, that's for sure!"
  • If the player is defeated
"The Pokémon on both sides tried sooo hard, didn't they?"
  • After being defeated
"Thank you for being my opponent! Yep! I learned a lot! Know what? Recently, I've been thinking Pokémon stay by our sides to bring people together... I'm thinking of researching that!"
  • After winning
"I love your style of Pokémon battling! Somehow, your Pokémon look like they're having so much fun!"
  • In the lobby, after the tournament
"Even if it's just little by little, I'm learning about Pokémon. I'm thinking about how to bring out the best from everyone, but I still have a ways to go. Oh, I almost forgot! Congratulations on your victory!"

Bianca in the anime
Main article: Bianca (anime)

Bianca appears as a recurring character in the anime. She is a friendly rival of Ash and occasional traveling companion. She is clumsy and hasty, but genuinely goodhearted and cares deeply for her Pokémon and the friends she makes on her journey. Her dad did not allow her to travel for some time, causing her to be slightly inexperienced for her age, but she doesn't take the opportunity for granted. She occasionally runs errands for Professor Juniper, one of which was bringing Ash his Badge case.

  • Bianca, Cheren, and N are the only Trainers in Pokémon Black and White with animated battle sprites.
  • When Black and White were first released, Bianca was widely misreported to be the Champion of the Pokémon League.
  • Bianca is the first rival who chooses the starter Pokémon with a type disadvantage to the player's starter Pokémon.
  • In Black and White, Bianca always defeats every Gym after the player and Cheren.
  • In Black and White, if the player character manages to beat Bianca in their first battle without taking any damage, Cheren will make a note on how the player somehow won without taking any damage. As the scenario is highly unlikely to ever happen, the dialog is next to impossible to actually trigger.
  • In the games, Bianca is the first person to give the player their starter Pokémon other than the regional professor.
  • Bianca participates in the Unova and World Leaders Tournaments, despite not being a Gym Leader.
    • She is also the only Trainer to participate in said tournaments who doesn't participate in the Type Expert Tournament.
