Pokémon Black and White

Nuvema Town
"<Player>! I heard from Professor Juniper. We can have a Pokémon? … … What's keeping Bianca?"
"Bianca… I've known for ten years that you have no sense of time, but…seriously… Today's the day we can get a Pokémon from Professor Juniper!"'
"Naturally. The Pokémon are waiting for us inside that gift box. OK, <player>, you go first and take a peek at the gift box. I want to meet the Pokémon right now!"
  • If player tries to leave before opening the gift box
"Aren't you going to check out the gift box? Where are you going?"
  • If talked to before choosing first partner
"Would you get a move on and open the gift box already? I'm sure the Pokémon are just as excited to meet us!"
  • After choosing the first partner
"Hey, how come you get to pick out my Pokémon? Oh, never mind. I wanted this one from the start, anyway."
"Honestly, Bianca… Even though they're still weak Pokémon, you shouldn't have Pokémon battles inside a house."
  • After battling Bianca
"Uh… … Bianca, would you take a look around?"
"You…are completely hopeless. Here! I'll restore your Pokémon for you. <player>'s Pokémon needs to be fixed up, too."
"I believe you're right! It'll be no problem for me to keep the room from getting any messier. Besides, it's not fair if you two are the only ones who get to have fun battling!"'
"It's decided. You'll be my opponent… in our first Pokémon battle!"'
"Let's see what you can do, Tepig/Oshawott/Snivy!
  • After the first damaging, non-KO hit
"I've finally become a Trainer… Everything starts from here!"
  • Being defeated
"Ah! So that's a Pokémon battle!"
  • After being defeated
"I made a strange blunder in my first battle, but this feeling I have… ...I'm finally a Trainer. But first, we'd better go apologize to your mother about this messed-up room."
  • After winning
"This feeling… Finally, I'm a Trainer. On top of that, we'd better go apologize to your mother about this room."
  • Downstairs
"I'm very sorry about all the trouble, ma'am."
"Yes, thank you! Please excuse us. Come on. Let's go thank Professor Juniper. I'll be waiting in front of the Pokémon Research Lab."
  • If player tries to leave the town before visiting Juniper Pokémon lab
"<Player>! I understand the feeling. I want to go somewhere with my Pokémon too, but first we have to go thank Professor Juniper. Come on. The lab is this way!"
  • Near lab, before visiting Bianca
"I'm sorry, but could you go to Bianca's house? I'll bet she's spacing out like she usually does. She's totally flighty."
  • Near lab, after visiting Bianca
"OK! Let's go meet the Professor."
  • Juniper Pokémon Lab
"Professor Juniper? We know your name."
"It's for the Pokédex, right?"
"Thank you very much. Because of you, I can become a Pokémon Trainer, exactly as I always wished."
"Of course. We can travel however we want while we complete the Pokédex."
"Finally, I can become a Pokémon Trainer. I'll have real battles with other Trainers and get stronger. Wait and see!"*
  • Outside Lab
"I'll take good care of it."
"If I use this Town Map, I'll always know where I am… That's certainly helpful. Shall we head to Route 1? The Professor's waiting."
  • Near Route 1
"Bianca says if we're starting a journey, she wants us all to take our first step at the same time."
"OK, here we go!"
"It sure is! C'mon, the Professor's waiting."
Route 1
"Professor Juniper, I'm sorry to have kept you waiting."
  • After the catching demonstration
"She forgot to say Pokémon jump out at you in the tall grass. I'm heading to Accumula Town, too."
"But we need to get going! I'd imagine the Professor's waiting too."
"Huh. Actually, that sounds interesting. It will fill up Pokédex pages, so I'm sure it will please the Professor too. OK, then. Until we reach Accumula Town, take care of healing your Pokémon at your house."
  • Outside Accumula Town
"<player>, are you going to compare yourself with Bianca? Both Bianca and I have two Pokémon with us."*
"Incidentally, if you check your Pokédex, you'll see how many Pokémon you've found and how many you've caught. I'm off to Accumula Town! The Professor is waiting."
"Well I'm going on ahead."

Accumula Town

  • At the plaza before visiting Pokémon center
"Wasn't that the professor waiting in front of the Pokémon Center? I know about the Pokémon Center already. Anyway, I want to battle soon! Real battles are the best way to become stronger, you know!"
  • After player visits Pokémon Center and attempts to head north of the town
"<player> come here a sec."
"Slow down. You talk too fast. And what's this about Pokémon… talking? That's an odd thing to say."
"My name is Cheren, and this is <player>. We were asked to complete the Pokédex, and we just left on our journey. My main goal is to become the Champion, though."
"Huh… Strange guy. But I'm not going to worry about it. Trainers and Pokémon help each other out! Listen, I'm going on ahead. I want to battle the Gym leader in the next town—Striaton City. Aim to battle Gym Leader after Gym Leader. The best way for a trainer to become stronger is to challenge the gym leaders in each area."
Striaton City
  • In Trainer's School
"When a Pokémon is poisoned, its HP decreases while it is battling. Hey, <player>. Have you come looking for the Gym Leader?"
No: "Nothing improves your skill as a trainer like battles. That's why challenging the Gym Leaders is great practice."
Yes: "He was here talking about Pokémon types until just a few minutes ago… Maybe you walked right past him?"
"By the way, <player> will you have a battle with me? I want to test how important items are in battles."
No: "Really? I really want to try out my items, so I'll just wait here until you decide you're ready."
Yes: "Well, let's see how effective my items are… Or maybe I should test how well I can battle without items…? Anyway, this is an indoor match, so let's battle without getting too rough!"
  • After the first damaging, non-KO hit
"Moves that never miss and moves that can attack first… There sure are a lot of different moves."
  • Sending out last Pokémon
"It's important to choose which item your Pokémon holds…"
  • Being defeated
"I see! Losing to you means that I still have a lot to learn."
  • After being defeated
"So learning to use items well is definitely important, then. Oh, here. <player> I'll give you these Berries."
"If you give a Pokémon this kind of Berry to hold, it will eat it to heal up when its HP goes down in battle. But if you give it man-made items like Potions to hold, they can't use them. Well, good luck then."
Route 3
  • Before battle
"<player>, stop! We both have a Trio Badge, so let's see which of us is stronger!"
  • After the first damaging, non-KO hit
"Ugh! You choose a good move, as usual."'
  • Last Pokémon with low health
"With my knowledge, I can bring out the strength of my Pokémon!"
  • Being defeated
"Why do you keep beating me? We have the same number of Gym Badges. We should be equals in strength…"
  • After being defeated
"I see. So that's how you battle."
"What was that about? Bianca? Why are you running?"
"That way, but… Why are you running now?"
"Bianca, really, why were you running?"
"You should have spoken up sooner! <Player>, we're going to get that Pokémon back. Bianca! Please stay by the girls side."
  • Outside Wellspring Cave
"They ran inside here! <Player>, your Pokémon's HP is fine and you're ready to go, right?"
No: "I could never forgive myself if we were to lose to the kinds of thugs who would take peoples Pokémon! I'll wait here. Hurry and get ready!"
Yes: "Then let's go."
Wellspring Cave
"<Player>! This bothersome bunch doesn't really listen to reason."
"Not bad, <player>. OK, go return the Pokémon to that girl."
"So, there were more of them… Still, why are Pokémon robbers acting so self-righteous? <Player>! We've been friends our whole lives. We've got each other's back when it counts. Let's show them how it's done!"
"Whatever… What a waste of time. Come on, what reason could possibly justify stealing Pokémon from people?"
"What do you mean, Trainers are making Pokémon suffer? I don't get that at all!"
""Trainer's bring out their Pokémon's strength. Pokémon believe in their Trainer's and respond to that. I don't understand what about that makes Pokémon suffer! OK, <player>. I'll return the Pokémon."
  • Southern Route 3
"<player> Stop! The dark tall grass over there… Every now and again, two Pokémon will pop out at the same time. In other words, you have to be careful in the darker grass. I'm heading to Nacrene City."
Nacrene City
"Come with me a sec."
"If you go straight from here, there's a Pokémon Center. And… take these if you want."
"Give your Pokémon a Chesto Berry to hold. Then, if it ever falls asleep, it will wake up immediately. Oh and another piece of advice—Nacrene City's Gym Leader uses Normal types. It you have a Fighting-type Pokémon, it might give you a big advantage."
"<player>, is there some kind or problem?"
"For now, all we need to do is protect the museum, right?"
  • Inside the museum
"So I can't battle the Gym Leader because of Team Plasma, huh... What a bother."

Castelia City

  • Outside Gym
"Hey, <player>. I just challenged the Gym Leader Burgh. He's a seasoned Gym Leader. He made me work for that Badge! But for me, Bug-type Pokémon aren't much of a challenge. I'm going to keep winning like this against all of the Unova region's Gym Leaders! Then, I'll head for the Pokémon League and outperform the Champion! If I do that, everyone will admit what a strong Trainer I am… That will make me feel truly alive…"

Route 4

  • Before obtaining the Insect Badge
"I believe it would be wise for me to catch some Ground-type Pokémon. Or perhaps I should strengthen my Pokémon. What's my best path forward?"
  • Before battle
"Hey, <player>. I've been waiting for you to get the Insect Badge. And now it's time to see which one of us is the stronger Trainer!"
  • After the first damaging, non-KO hit
"You seem to understand the importance of the first attack very well."
  • Last Pokémon low on health
"If I can bring out the power of my Pokémon, I can still pull this off and win."
  • Being defeated
"Impressive. But why can't I win?!"
  • After being defeated
"It's now clear to me. The reason you are so tough is the trust between you and your Pokémon. But… that shouldn't be a problem. I can get more out of <Cheren's first partner> and my other Pokémon, too."
  • On Xtransceiver
"Professor Juniper, do you need something?"
"...Um, hello?!"
  • After the call
"Nimbasa City's gate is straight down Route 4."
  • Nimbasa City Gate
"Come here."
"It seems the Professor gave us the Pokédex as a reason to send us on a journey. At least, that's what my mom told me. They wanted us to go out and see the world, so my mom, Bianca's mom, and your mom made a request to Professor Juniper. <Player>, what should we do now? I think I'd like to show the Professor my thanks by going to Route 4 and catching some Pokémon I haven't caught."
Route 5
  • Before battle
"<Player>, stop! You've got a Bolt Badge… I've got a Bolt Badge… Let's test who's stronger—you or me! This time, I'm going to win!"
  • After the first damaging, non-KO hit
"I see. I'm surprised you chose that move."
  • Last Pokémon low on health
"Mind you… It's not over yet!"
  • Being defeated
"Well! You are strong, as usual!"
  • After being defeated
"Why? Why can't I best you?"
  • Meeting Alder
"Who is this man?"
"Champion?! Why would the Champion be goofing around in a place like this?"
"Um, I'm Cheren, from Nuvema Town. My goal as a trainer is to become the Champion."
"What else is there other than striving to be stronger? The strongest Trainer—that's the Champion."
"…Understood. But, before that..."
"OK, let's battle."
"The Champion is the strongest of the strong! That's all there is to it."
"This way."
"What I am is a Trainer. I prove I'm right by getting stronger and winning in battle—even against the Champion."
Driftveil City
"What a bother. We're grateful that you lowered the bridge, but how is it our fault that they escaped?"
"Well, I suppose that's fair. But really, we would have looked for Team Plasma even if he hadn't asked. I can't get stronger while beating that bothersome bunch… <Player>! I'll go on ahead."
Cold Storage
  • Outside
"<Player>… Do you think Team Plasma could be in there? I don't like cold places, but we have to check. What a bother."
"Well… Still. Is there anything more important than strength for Trainers, like the Champion said? Oh, I'll never understand just by thinking about it. What a bother. Let's hurry up and check the inside."
  • Inside
"Oh… Is someone in there?"
No: "But the only place in the cold storage we haven't searched is here, right?"
Yes: "Shall we go, then?"
"What's wrong? Aren't you going to check inside?"*
"Whatever. I can't believe you were really hiding. It's a bother, but if you're cold shall I show you outside?"
"<Player>! Let's each take care of one side!"
  • After defeating the Team Plasma Grunts
"Whatever… Team Plasma's ideal… Separating people and Pokémon… It's exactly the same as not having Pokémon in this world at all. That bunch is a waste of oxygen. <Player>… It's cold, so I'm getting out of here."
  • Outside the Gym
´"Well, we avoided a fight in the middle of the city, anyway. Still, I can't help but think Ghetsis isn't just an ordinary person. I'm off to go make my Pokémon stronger. I really don't want to lose to that Clay guy. Actually, I'm going to win my Gym Badge in a flawless victory!"
Twist Mountain
"<Player>! Since we both hold the Jet Badge now, let's see which of us is stronger!"
  • After the first damaging, non-KO hit
"Your strength… And my strength… Right. Let's test them."
  • Sending out last Pokémon
"Can you be strong even if you lose? Is winning everything?"
  • Being defeated
"Pokémon battles are fun. But what is it to be truly strong?"
  • After being defeated
"If it isn't the Champion, Alder. I'm weak, so I lost! ...And, honestly, it bothers me when you call it a fine battle despite that."
"If I get strong and become a Champion, that will be the reason for my existence. I want to prove that I'm really living."
"What I do with my power... I don't know that answer yet. First, I want to become a strong Trainer so everyone will acknowledge that power! <Player>... Next time, I will win!"
  • Inside
"Oh… <player>!"
"Is that so."
"I thought he was going to get us involved in all that bother again, so I was bracing myself before I knew it. I'm going in first, but I'll be seeing you."
  • Near exit
"So if you want to set Pokémon free… If that's what want, you should start with your own. But taking people's Pokémon by force is not right. That is not real strength!"
"Those guys… I don't know what they've found, but they go the extra mile to gain power and cause trouble. What a bothersome bunch… <Player>… I'm going to stay here for a while. I want to think a little bit about what the Champion asked me… What do I want to do with my power after I get strong? And why do I want to be strong in the first place?"
Icirrus City
"<Player>, I've been talking with Bianca, and I'm wondering… Since we left Nuvema Town, has something about me… changed? Thinking about what I want to do… Thinking about what I should do… It felt like there was nothing… Have I really become stronger? Or is it just my Pokémon that have? I don't know anymore!"
"I'm going, too. Dragonspiral Tower is to the North of here, right?"
Dragonspiral Tower
  • 2F
"<Player>! You can walk on the fallen columns, too. I'm going after Team Plasma!"
  • 3F
"This is nothing! But there sure are a lot of them… Oh, what a complete bother!"
  • Top floor
"<Player>, did you see what flew off just now?"
"Why? That was that guy N, right? Why was he with the legendary Pokémon? He couldn't be the hero, could he?! Also, did I hear him tell you to search for the other legendary Pokémon?"
  • Outside
"That guy called N… Team Plasma's boss apparently reawakened the legendary Pokémon. He told <player> to look for the other legendary Pokémon, then flew away..."
"I think I understand better now. Being able to do something for Pokémon—for somebody at a time like this—is strength… I'm sure of it. And my strength is something that is given to me by Pokémon. OK, Champion, let's hurry!"
Desert Resort
  • Before entering the Relic Castle
"Stop, <player>! That's the entrance to the Relic Castle. You're impressive, <player>, making it here before I did. Dealing with the Desert Resort's Pokémon took longer than I would have thought. I only made it all the way out here thanks to my Pokémon. Alder went on ahead. Let's hurry."
  • After exiting the Relic Castle
"It's hard to put into words… but I'll never forgive them for this!"
"I'll look around here once more. I don't want to believe what that Ghetsis says… You should head for the Nacrene City Museum."
Relic Castle
"Whew! I finally caught up."
"Alder… What are you going to do now?"
"Alder… Why don't we go outside for now?"
Route 10
"...Halt... <Player>!"
"Drayden and Professor Juniper told me. You're heading for the Pokémon League, right?"
Yes: "Since it's Alder... Since it's the Champion, I think it will be all right."
No: "Now is not the time for modesty."
"Worst-case scenario… you'll be battling Team Plasma's boss, N. I need to know if you can handle it!"
  • After the first damaging, non-KO hit
"I will use everything that I've learned on this journey!"
  • Sending out last Pokémon
"My Pokémon and I will put all our energy into this battle!"
  • Being defeated
"Thank you. You are really great."
  • After being defeated
"Yep, you are something else. And I mean that sincerely. Right. Now, I have to make your Pokémon healthy."
"Right now, there's no way I can compare with you, <Player>. If there is anything I can do to help in the battle with N, just say so…"
"Funny? At a time like this…"
"…So that's what you mean. ...You are right that we're all different and we should do the things that we can do."
"There are as many truths and ideals as there are people and Pokémon. The most important thing is that we help one another out. That's why people and Pokémon are always by each other's side. That's what I've come to think lately… <Player>! If anything happens to you or Alder, I will do everything I can to help you. That's why I have to keep training and getting stronger. Just...don't be reckless, OK?"
Pokémon League
"Mr. Alder, you're a wreck. It's not fitting for the Champion."
"Somehow, I beat the Pokémon League, but it wasn't easy."
"I became stronger because I understood what I want to do. <Player>! Tell N this… Some people grow stronger by being with Pokémon. My Pokémon and I are proof. Together, we learned and became stronger."
  • If talked to
"I'll look after Alder. You go on."
N's Castle
"Rule the world?? Wasn't Team Plasma's goal to liberate Pokémon?"
"Alder, it's a waste of valuable time listening to him ramble on. He is the one without a human heart!"
Nuvema Town (post-game)
"Hey, <player>. Is Looker through talking to you?"
"If that's the case… I let Ghetsis escape when the Shadow Triad created an opening."
"I'll tell you later about what happened in the castle. It's more important to ask what you plan to do now, Bianca."
"That's the city on the other side of Route 16 when you leave from Nimbasa City. Hmm. If you go that way, you might be able to meet all sorts of Pokémon you've never seen before."
"Huh. Bianca's as impetuous as ever, no matter what is going on. I think I'll travel all the way around Unova, starting at Route 1 again. I'm sure I'll discover lots of new things. Could be I'll encounter the Seven Sages along the way… And, <player>, if we spy each other along the way, let's battle again, OK?"
Route 5 (post-game)
"Strength and strength alone is what matters in this world. So I believed, until I met Alder here."
"But, winning in Pokémon battles isn't all there is to life. Once I learned that, my eyes were opened to many different things."
"We all have our own band of strength, people and Pokémon both. The strength to make our dreams a reality, the strength to protect what we hold most dear…"
"Why do I think this way now? It's thanks to you, <player>... And Bianca... And Alder... If only N could see this, too, someday."
"I'm going to take a long, hard look on myself on Victory Road. I'm going to think about what I can do and who I can become… Visit me sometime, if you want. We'll have a battle like old times."
Victory Road
  • Before battle (first time)
"<Player>, it's difficult, isn't it? When you confront yourself, you have to notice things about yourself that aren't too flattering..."
"...Marshal?"
"Are those Alder's words?"
"I guess that's that. OK, <player>! Accept this Pokémon battle!"
  • Before battle (subsequent visits)
"Oh, you showed up, <player>. In order to surpass myself up to this point, and to beat a purely strong Pokémon Trainer such as yourself, I'm challenging you to a Pokémon battle!"
  • After the first damaging, non-KO hit
"I know all my strengths and weaknesses now. Soon, I will also know all yours!"
  • Sending out last Pokémon
"It's not over yet. My Pokémon are with me!"
  • Last Pokémon on low health
"I believe in my Pokémon's strength, so I don't lose my calm."
  • Being defeated
"Thank you! I saw what was missing in me."
  • After being defeated
"I'll keep battling many Trainers and Pokémon like this, and if I can learn what kind of person I am, it will open up my path. I'm sure this path will lead me to become the person I'm meant to be. Pokémon will always be with you and me as we go down our own paths. Our important friends, Pokémon…"

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

Aspertia Gym
  • Upon entering the Gym
"You must be a challenger! Welcome to Aspertia City's Pokémon Gym. I'm Cheren, the Gym Leader! Hm? Well, maybe I'd better say that I just became the Gym Leader! More importantly, we need to prepare before welcoming you to the Gym."
"We have a challenger! You two, take your places!"
"If you can defeat these two, then I'll be your opponent!"
  • If talked to before defeating the two Trainers
"If you want to battle me, please defeat those two first, OK?"
  • Before battle
"Just as this is your first Gym challenge, this is my first Pokémon battle as a Gym Leader! Let's both do our best and have a battle we can be proud of!"
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"To have chosen that move... I see! You'll be a powerful opponent!"
  • Sending out last Pokémon
"As a Gym Leader, I aim to be a wall for you to overcome!"
  • Being defeated
"This! This is what a real Pokémon battle is!"
  • After being defeated:
"That battle has made me feel really glad you were my first challenger as a Gym Leader… I give you this in honor of the strength you and your Pokémon showed!"
"Here is your first Gym Badge, the Basic Badge! This is an important milestone! With this Badge, Pokémon up to Lv. 20 will obey you, including traded Pokémon."
"And I want you to take this! TM83 can teach your Pokémon the move Work Up! When you use Work Up while battling, it raises the user's Attack and Sp. Atk. By the way, TMs can be used as many times as you want!"
"In the Unova region, there are eight Pokémon Gyms and eight Gym Badges! If you're a Trainer, you could collect all of them! That will make it easier to fill the pages of the Pokédex as well! Yes, two years ago, Pokédex in hand, I left on a journey with my friends."
Aspertia City
  • Leaving the Gym
"Bianca! It's been two years, hasn't it?"
"I thought it would be a good idea to register each other in the Xtransceiver!"
"Now, you can communicate with me from your Xtransceiver."
  • Xtransceiver conversation
"Professor Juniper, it's been a long time. I'm glad you're doing so well. The Gym Leader position is very tough… If I had my usual partners…"
  • After the conversation
"Bianca makes a good point. I'll tell you what I know about Pokémon Abilities and Pokémon type matchups.
"You look like a tough Trainer. Understood. Please come into my Pokémon Gym!"
Route 20
  • Before the dark grass:
"<Player>! Wait!"
"Come with me, you two."
"See the dark tall grass here? It's rare, but sometimes two Pokémon pop out at the same time. Also, the Pokémon that hide in dark grass are slightly stronger. So be careful if you walk through."
"If you're going to challenge the next Gym, it's the Virbank Gym. These might help!"
"Here are some for you, Hugh! Both of you, do your best! If you need anything, call me on the Xtransceiver."
Pokémon World Tournament
"Why did you call me here, too? I'm busy looking into something!"
"Man oh man... You never change, Clay. But the tournament itself does look pretty fun! OK! I'll go register!"
  • After the Driftveil Tournament
"The Unova Gym Leaders will probably participate in order to improve their skills."
"I barely recognized you and <player>. You two are way different from when we battled in Aspertia City! Traveling with Pokémon makes everyone grow so much..."
"I'm going, too! I've got his back!"
Driftveil Tournament
  • Before battle
"I'm as thrilled as I can be to battle here against you, the first challenger I battled as a Gym Leader. I'm sure you've learned something about Pokémon during your journey. Now, I'm going to see if your bond with your Pokémon has grown stronger!"
  • Being defeated
"Fantastic! You and your Pokémon have grown much stronger!"
  • If the player is defeated
"Even when you lose, your Pokémon are still brimming with fighting spirit."
  • After winning/being defeated
"I made it where I am because Pokémon were by my side. Perhaps we need to think about why Pokémon help us not in terms of Pokémon and Trainers but as a relationship between living beings."
Other Tournaments
  • Before battle (first round)
"I feel that if it's with you, this battle won't be a simple competition but a battle where I can ponder the relationship between Pokémon and their Trainers."
  • Before battle (second round)
"Do you want to show how strong you are by winning, or do you want to learn what battling really means? Pokémon battles have no meaning if you don't think why you battle. Or better said, it makes battling together with Pokémon meaningless."
  • Before battle (final round)
"Even if hurt, my Pokémon will fight for me with just one command. I think I'll value and trust your Pokémon more if you keep that fact close to your heart. What can I do for these Pokémon? What should I do? That's right! I battle with everything to find the ideal relationship between Pokémon and people!"
  • When defeated
"Thank you! I feel like I saw a little of the way toward my ideals."
  • If the player is defeated
"Even when you lose, your Pokémon are still brimming with fighting spirit."
  • After being defeated
"I'll keep battling many Trainers and Pokémon like this, and if I can learn what kind of person I am, it will open up my path. I'm sure this path will lead me to become the person I'm meant to be. Pokémon will always be with you and me as we go down our own paths. Our important friends, Pokémon..."
  • After winning
"Pokémon are by all of our sides--mine, yours, and each and every Trainer's! That's why we move forward! The Pokémon walking alongside us give us the strength to do so!"
  • In the lobby, after the tournament
"I learned something from this battle... But only a little. What does it mean to be strong...? What are Pokémon...? There are so many things I don't know!"
Plasma Frigate
  • Before the ambush
"And... It seems like it's disguised as an old sailboat... But that can't be it, right?"
  • Before Multi Battle
"<Player>! I'd like to show them what the two of us can do, so could you help me out?"
  • After the battle
"Thanks! You've really become much stronger! Help out Hugh next, OK?"
"There are so many of them. What a bother!"
  • After the battle alongside Hugh
"Good idea... There are a lot of things I want to ask about as well."
"Oh, good grief... You're the person who was shivering in the Cold Storage, right? Wasn't your name Zinzolin? You're going to have to tell me what you're planning to do with this ship."
  • After getting kicked out by the Shadow Triad
"The Shadow Triad... With their superhuman powers, they can immobilize people and then disappear! But I'm more concerned with what Zinzolin said... "Once again, we will use the legendary Dragon-type Pokémon and we will rule the Unova region!" What could that mean? The legendary Dragon-type Pokémon Reshiram and Zekrom aren't in Unova anymore... <Player>. There's something I want to look into, so I'm going to head to Route 6! Be careful out there!"
Route 6
"Oh, <player>. Can you come with me for a moment?"
"No one really talks about it, but the record shows that there was a sudden drop in temperature near Lacunosa Town. It was only for a moment, but it went down as low as -58° F. Not only that, but similar temperatures were recorded around Castelia City and Driftveil City. On top of that, that incident with Team Plasma! I think this needs some investigation before things go bad. I hate cold weather, though. I'll give you this... It's a Hidden Machine that contains Surf. With this, please go to different places and check what's going on. Let one of your Pokémon learn Surf, and you can travel across the water."
"Sorry to have slowed you down. Some strange things may be happening, so be careful on your journey!"
Nimbasa City
  • In front of the Ferris wheel, on Saturdays
"Now that you mention it, I've been to Nimbasa City many times, but I've never ridden the Ferris wheel."*
"Well... In order to put what's good about Ferris wheels into words, the only thing to do is ride one."*
  • During the ride
"I don't really get what's so fun about riding a Ferris wheel."
"That's the Skyarrow Bridge, and that's Pinwheel Forest over there."
"Maybe I enjoyed that a little bit. I guess I still need to work on having fun."
  • After riding
"Everything is an experience. Thanks for riding with me. That's a big help."*
"The scenery changes along with the movement of the Ferris wheel, but I prefer it when things stay the same."*
Opelucid City
  • Xtransceiver conversation
"I saw it too! I'm en route!"
"Yes. No doubt about it... Anyway, I'll be arriving in just a moment!"
  • In the streets
"<Player>. Drayden, glad to see you're safe as well."
"Thanks. We should save catching up for later. I have a good idea of where Team Plasma is hiding. The place with the lowest temperature in the Unova region right now is an area close to Humilau City. Drayden, please protect Opelucid City. Hugh and I will find Team Plasma!"
"<Player>! I could use your help, if you're willing. You're a skilled Trainer who can go toe-to-toe with Team Plasma. That's my definition of useful. Drayden, we're off!"
Route 21
"Sorry I'm late... I suspect that they're flying toward the Giant Chasm."
"Kyurem! Team Plasma is using Kyurem's power for evil?!"
"Then how should we stop Team Plasma? If Kyurem is, like Drayden said, a legendary Dragon-type Pokémon, the only ones who could stand up to it are ZekromB2/ReshiramW2 or ReshiramB2/ZekromW2! But... Neither of them is here right now... Where are the ones the legendary Pokémon recognized as heroes, anyway? I guess I just have to find one of them!"
  • If spoken to
"Yeah... You can get to the Giant Chasm from Route 22."
Giant Chasm
  • After capturing/defeating Kyurem
"<Player>! That was Kyurem just now, right? So that's the legendary Pokémon Team Plasma, or should I say Ghetsis, was using..."
"I'm sure she was! In Unova, actually in the whole world, there are still many Pokémon that are waiting to meet you, though!"
Pinwheel Forest
  • Upon meeting the player
"Hey, nice timing! I heard that Team Plasma was seen in Pinwheel Forest... Could you help me look for them?"
Yes: "Thank you! This is a good opportunity for me to see up close what you can really do. I suppose I'll follow your lead. Leave recovery to me!"
No: "We don't know how many there are, so splitting up doesn't seem like a very good tactic. Got it! I'll wait here until you're ready to go!"
  • If the player attempts to leave the area
"Stop! If you go past here, we'll leave the Pinwheel Forest. We still haven't found Team Plasma, but do you need to leave for a minute?
No: "Thank you! This is a good opportunity for me to see up close what you can really do. I suppose I'll follow your lead. Leave recovery to me!"
Yes: "We don't know how many there are, so splitting up doesn't seem like a very good tactic. Got it! I'll wait here until you're ready to go!"
  • If the player returns after leaving the area
"Team Plasma was seen inside Pinwheel Forest... But you already know that. Will you help me look for them?
Yes: "Thank you! This is a good opportunity for me to see up close what you can really do. I suppose I'll follow your lead. Leave recovery to me!"
No: "We don't know how many there are, so splitting up doesn't seem like a very good tactic. Got it! I'll wait here until you're ready to go!"
  • If talked to while walking
"People and Pokémon each have their own strengths — the strength to realize dreams, and the strength to protect others... I'm sure N understands that now.
  • If talked to again
"Team Plasma... Or better said, Ghetsis... It's almost like, to him, there was nothing else in the world but himself..."
  • If talked to for the third time
"My ideal is to be strong... But there are many ways to be strong in this world. Simply winning battles doesn't help me find the ideal strength I desire."
  • If talked to for the fourth time
"You remind me of a friend of mine whose strength was amazing. I wonder what that friend is up to these days..."
  • If talked to for the fifth time onwards
"Still no sign of Team Plasma. Why don't we head deeper into the forest?"
  • Upon meeting Gorm
"Team Plasma's finished. Despite that, you still haven't given up? Are you here planning something?"
  • After Gorm left
"You know... If it wasn't for Ghetsis, he might've chosen another path... Or maybe not. He was the one who decided to follow Ghetsis, after all..."
"That aside, thank you! You have made this investigation go smoothly. This is my thanks! Come on, just take it!"
"OK! Be seeing you!"
Route 5 (Memory Link)
  • Before battle
"I heard that you met a Pokémon Trainer called N."
"That's not really why I'm here, though. Will you battle me?"
Yes: "You remind me of [player name in B/W]. That makes me excited about this Pokémon battle!"
No: "How sad! Well, please tell me if you change your mind."
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"I will use everything that I've learned in my life until now!"
  • During battle (last Pokémon at critical health)
"My Pokémon and I will put all our energy into this battle!"
  • Being defeated
"Thank you. You really are great."
  • After being defeated
"I talked with [player name in B/W] here before."
"We all have our own brand of strength, people and Pokémon both."
"The strength to make our dreams a reality, the strength to protect what we hold most dear... That's what I said."
"I was thinking about how I hope N can see the same thing... but during our battle, I came to understand something."
"During his journey, N also saw what we saw."
"If I tell this story, [player name in B/W] will probably be happy."
"Thank you!"

Main Story PML Arc - Chapter 18 - Team Unova
  • Team Unova: Part 1
"... ... ..."
"Well, you went on a massive journey around the Unova region..."
"and I followed a similar path right there along with you. Now I'm a Gym Leader."
"Honestly, I think we make a pretty strong team, and I'm totally confident in our battle skills. It's just that..."
"Yeah. I've been thinking the same thing."
"Moving forward in this competition is going to require more strength and power than we've ever had to use before."
"And...seeking victory for victory's sake won't be enough. We'll have to battle as a team–use our strength to help one another..."
"That's the sort of battling that's going to be expected of us from here on out."
"Hm? What are you laughing at?"
"I don't know whether to take that as a compliment or an insult..."
"I'll admit that I've had tunnel vision in the past when it comes to winning. I didn't really know what I wanted back then."
"But the experiences I had and the people I met along the way helped me figure that out for myself."
"What do you mean?"
"Hilda!"
"I see... That sounds like a great idea!"
"Hilbert's right. I already know for a fact that you're passionate about Pokémon battling. It practically radiates off of you."
"So you'll join our team then? I look forward to battling together!"
"Good luck, <player>... It looks like we're your opponents this round."
"You and your team have built up quite the reputation for yourselves–defeating Gym Leaders, Elite Four members, and other famous Trainers."
"But I guarantee you, our team is more in sync with each other than anyone else you've faced in this tournament!"
"Let's give this battle everything we've got! No regrets on either side!"
  • Team Unova: Part 2
"Wow, <player>... Thanks for such an incredible battle."
"You and your team earned that victory. All we can ask is that you keep moving forward, for your sake and for ours!"
"I'm looking forward to seeing all the things you're capable of from here on out."
"Until then... Hilbert? Hilda? You ready to go?"
"What?"
"Hilbert... Hilda..."
"You two saw right through me, huh... Well, I guess there's no harm in asking."
"I know it's a little sudden, but would it be OK if I joined your team, <player>?"
"Thanks to my friends here, I've already gotten so much stronger since the PML began...just like my journey back in Unova."
"If you let me join, I think we can learn from each other's experiences and bolster this team's strength as a whole. What do you say?"
Come and battle with us!: "Thank you! I'll do my best."
Let's help each other win this!: "Absolutely! In fact, I think that moving forward, teamwork is exactly what's going to separate the winners from the losers!"
"Personally, I want us to win this! So let's put our hands and our hearts together and make it happen as a team!"

Main Story PML Arc - Interlude 3 - The Truth about Pasio
  • King of Solitude
  • Off-screen, as "???"
"Hoopa... You mean the Mythical Pokémon?"
  • After appearing, as Cheren
"Ah, I guess I should apologize for eavesdropping. I never thought I'd hear the name of that Pokémon, though."
"Well, I know I'm in the wrong here, but when I noticed you weren't at the opening ceremony, I got curious and followed Sawyer."
"I guess we're all in way more trouble than I originally thought."
"Hoopa, the Mythical Pokémon, huh? I've only ever read about it in books."
"It's said that Hoopa can warp space with its rings, sending anything and everything to faraway places."
"I suppose with that kind of power, it could easily teleport people and Pokémon to Pasio from all over the world."
"Well, when you bring Hoopa into the equation, all of the strange things going on around here start to make sense."
"Some Trainers came to this island on a ferry or on the back of their Pokémon..."
"but some were transported here by some mysterious ring–me being one of them."
"It all makes sense now... It was Hoopa's power that brought us here."
"You used Hoopa to bring all of us sync pairs here to Pasio, didn't you? For the PML."
"Wait, Lear! If Team Break really did steal Hoopa, all of Pasio could be in danger now."
"You don't actually think you can solve this all on your own, do you? You need to enlist help from the other sync pairs on the island."
"Lear..."
"OK, let's say you become king all on your own, without any help from anyone... Then what?"
"..."
"Lear is bound and determined to do this all on his own, isn't he?"
"That obsession with power... He's definitely not going to make this easy for us."
  • Off-screen
"I wonder if this is how Alder felt..."
Main Story PML Arc - Interlude 4 - The Once-Charming Prince
  • Rachel, Sawyer, and Lear
"Well, he certainly seemed eager to cut you two loose."
"Like I've said before, if Hoopa has fallen into Team Break's hands, that spells danger for all of Pasio."
"Plus, I can't help but worry about Lear."
"Back home in Unova, I work as a Gym Leader and a teacher."
"Although Lear's not my student, I can't let him do whatever he pleases, seeing how reckless he is."
"Well, it may not relate directly to saving Hoopa, but it sounds like your problems run deeper than I thought."
"Please, tell me all you can about Lear."
  • Off-screen
"A "kind boy"? Lear?"
"The queen being Lear's mother, correct?"
  • On-screen
"So not only did he lose his mother, he was also torn from the two people he relied on most."
"Between all that loss and the rough experiences he must have had at school, it sounds like he lost his trust in others."
"I'm sorry to hear that, Sawyer."
"... ... ..."
"I don't have half as deep a history with Lear as you two, and as far as teaching goes, I'm still a beginner."
"But in some ways, that might actually make me just the person for the job."
"I'll do what I can to help Lear become a loving and beloved king."
"Of course I will. He'll get my full effort."
"But there's one thing I still don't understand."
"How does Hoopa figure into this? It never came up during your story."
"Odd. Well, if you don't know, you don't know, I suppose. No point dwelling on it for now."
"In any case, I'd like to get started with Lear right away."
"But to do that, I need to ask the two of you for a favor..."
  • Off-screen
"There you are, Lear. We've been looking for you."
  • On-screen
"Tell me something, Lear."
"Now that you're this strong, what kind of king do you plan to be?"
"The strongest king of all? Hm."
"Oh, Lear..."
  • Off-screen
"Lear...you've got to change."
Main Story PML Arc - Interlude 5 - What Makes a King
  • Cheren's Intervention
"Did you hear something? I thought I heard some yelling coming from outside..."
"No can do. Especially since Rachel and Sawyer aren't around to keep an eye on you."
"Not to mention, as I'm sure you've noticed..."
"Team Break's Pokémon seem to be growing stronger and stronger as we go."
"So you keep saying, Lear..."
"As you wish."
"Is that how Team Break's behavior made you feel?"
"Fair enough. Then you ought to know..."
"that's exactly what you look like to everyone else."
"I saw plenty of parallels between you and that Team Break leader."
"How did you describe him? "Strutting around all high and mighty and couldn't even face up to the fact that he lost"?"
"I'm afraid that fits you to a tee."
"The resemblance doesn't stop there, I'm afraid."
"You're also completely oblivious to how those around you help you out, Lear."
"Well, look at how the Team Break leader was yelling at his flunkies."
"But they were actually doing a decent job supporting him in that battle."
"Perhaps their support was the reason why this battle was a lot harder than you expected."
"Up until now, you've always had Rachel and Sawyer to help you out when you took on a really tough opponent."
"But they're not with you now."
"Are you feeling the emptiness where those two used to stand at your side, Lear?"
"... ... ..."
"Fine, then let me be blunt. As long as you keep ignoring those who want to help you..."
"you'll never be fit to be a king."
"All right, then. I'm dying to see what the "strongest king of all" is made of."
"Let's go, Stoutland! Let him see our strength!"
"... ... ..."
"Looks to me like this battle is finished."
"Let's get one thing straight before you go any further. Your Pokémon isn't at fault here. Donphan fought very well."
"Especially for a solitary Pokémon that was going up against a sync pair."
"Listen to me, Lear."
"There's a pair of heroes I've met who both earned the recognition of Legendary Pokémon."
"They saw the world very differently, but one thing they had in common was the strength of their beliefs."
"One believed firmly in the bonds between Pokémon and people..."
"while the other believed he had to change the world for Pokémon because they were his friends and he didn't want them to get hurt."
"Those firm beliefs earned them the recognition of the Legendary Pokémon, and the heroes both grew strong enough to defeat their region's Champion."
"They also drove back an evil man who sought to rule over both humans and Pokémon."
"Let me tell you something, Lear."
"Desperately grasping for power isn't kingly."
"What you need is a caring spirit–for people and Pokémon alike."
"I know it might be difficult to see now, but you've got to let go of this fixation on becoming the strongest one around."
"Once you do, I know you'll be able to change for the better. And more than that..."
"you'll see what truly matters."
"Where's that voice coming from?"
"Do you think we're going to just waltz into your exceedingly obvious trap?"
"Lear, no!"
"Don't do this, Lear. You know it's a trap!"
"Lear, listen to me–"
"Wha–?!"

  • Things Forgotten
"I'm glad you're safe, at any rate."
"They captured you, didn't they? How did you manage to escape?"
"I see. So it was Hoopa that saved you."
"Maybe it was trying to help you protect the things you care about."
"Hoopa's been right by your side, hasn't it?"
"I'm sure it knows how important the PML and becoming king are to you."
"So it did whatever it could to keep your dream alive. I'm sure that in Hoopa's mind..."
"it was protecting a friend."
"Before, you told me you wanted to become the strongest king of all."
"But what people really want from their king isn't strength."
"What they want is a king who cares about them–someone who treasures the bonds between people and Pokémon."

"Sawyer!"
"What a troublesome plan...making just one of us act separately to save Hoopa..."

  • Help Arrives!
"You're late."
"I'm sure you're full of questions right now, but before we get to that, we need to take care of Team Break!"
Come on! Let's help Lear!: "Yes! If we all work together, we'll have this situation under control in no time!"

"Nah. I'm not here to spy on anyone."
"And besides, we're more like battle comrades than enemies at this point, don't you think?"
"Of course! A battle is a battle. I wish both of our teams the best of luck."
"But before we get to that, there's something I've been wanting to talk to you about. The reason I decided to follow you."
"That was part of it, sure. But there was something else as well..."
"You reminded me of myself–of how I used to be."
"Well, for starters, I used to think that strength was the only thing that mattered."
"I thought that growing stronger and winning battles was the only way to prove my worth to others."
"But eventually, I learned that I had it all wrong."
  • Off-screen
"I owe my success to the friends, Gym Leaders, and Elite Four members I met along the way–and to a certain champion who liked to show up uninvited."
  • On-screen
"And, of course, to the Pokémon who shared the journey with me."
"I wouldn't be who I am today if it weren't for the lessons they all taught me."
"So when I see someone treading down a similar path, I can't help but want to steer them in the right direction."
"I guess it's my way of paying forward the kindness, you know?"
"Lear..."
"Lear! Did you ever figure it out? What truly matters to you?"
"*chuckle* You really are a tough nut to crack, aren't you, Lear."
"Even so, I'm sure you're going to be a great leader someday...and a great king."

"That's not true, Paulo."
"Of course, losing is painful, and it does involve some sacrifices. And there are some battles that you can't afford to lose."
"But–"
"That's a misconception, Paulo. In order to get stronger, you have to–"
"Paulo, stop!"
"Sure. I'd be happy to, Lear."
"It's kind of my fault, too. I was so caught up with rounding up villains that I didn't notice his cry for help."
"OK. Let's hurry and head after him–"
"Wait. It might be faster if we take care of it together. We don't know what we're dealing with yet."
"Also... I think hearing what you have to say will be better for Paulo, anyway."
"Yeah!"

"Well, he never was the type to stay in one place for very long."
"Yeah, but Team Break got away while I was distracted. I still have so much to learn."
Yes, I do!: "Yes, that's probably for the best."
"But the real mastermind was Ghetsis. He was controlling everything for his own gain."
"After Ghetsis was apprehended, Team Plasma laid low for a while."
"Ghetsis exploited N's beliefs, and we ended up battling each other. Looking back, I can't believe it even came to that."
"Even though we all cared about our Pokémon...we still had to fight."
"That said, N is really unpredictable. It might take a while to figure out where he is."
"Like what?"
  • The Ones Who Bested Alder
"The sun's starting to set... Guess we couldn't find any clues to N's whereabouts."
Let's keep searching for him.: "I understand how you both feel, but it's getting dark. Let's stop for today."
Let's try again tomorrow.: "Good idea. It'll be harder to find him when it's dark out, anyway."
"Let's ask Bianca to help us tomorrow. I'm sure we'll find him if we do."
"What was that?!"
"If you're going to resort to force, you'll have to go through us."
"Tch! What a dirty trick."
  • N to the Rescue
"It's been a while since they brought us here, but we still have no idea what Team Break is up to."
What in the world are they thinking?: "No idea. That's why it's so creepy."
"Focus on staying calm. That way, we can be prepared to deal with whatever they try to do."

"And where do you get off lecturing us after all the bad things Team Break has done?"

"Yes, I'm glad, too."
Did you wanna talk to N, too?: "Yeah. I have my own history with him."
"Now that I'm a Gym Leader, I think I'd be able to approach our conversation from a different point of view."
Are you worried about Hilbert?: "Yeah. I'm just wondering what was so important that he had to tell N in person."
"I'd like to talk to N, too..."
"but there's a proper order to this sort of thing, you know?"
"So I'll let Hilbert go first."

Sync Pair Story - A Day with Cheren
"Oh, hi, <player>. Thanks for coming."
Sorry to keep you waiting.: "Don't worry about it. Stoutland and I were just practicing some commands for different moves and actions."
What are you up to?: "Just practicing some commands for different moves and actions. Stoutland and I have been putting a lot of our energy into training lately."
"Ever since I've been a Gym Leader, the two of us have been best buds."
"I like to think about tactical advantages and plan all sorts of things while I battle."
"And Stoutland here has been a resourceful partner full of endless potential ever since he was a Lillipup."
"In that sense, I think Stoutland and I really make the perfect pair."
"I'm pretty sure Stoutland agrees."
"Ever since I became a Gym Leader and Stoutland and I became a sync pair, the work's really piled up for us."
"But I'm hoping that if we continue battling and training like we were just now, we'll learn how best to utilize our strengths."
It seems you have it all figured out!: "Thanks. And thanks to you, Stoutland has been even more excited to work hard and grow stronger."
That's brilliant!: "Indeed. And thanks to you, Stoutland has been even more excited to work hard and grow stronger."
"So, have you figured out why I called you here to meet us today?"
"That's right. I'm confident that Stoutland and I have you beat when it comes to sync strength..."
"... ... ..."
"Phew! All right, let's continue to fight hard together as a team."
We're not going to battle?/I thought you were going to challenge me to a battle!: "Well, I suppose we could battle if you want to."
"But I just saw with my own eyes that we're pretty even when it comes to sync strength."
"When a Trainer and a Pokémon click so well together, it means they're powerful in a battle, without a doubt."
"I've already seen your skills at work in a Pokémon battle, so I know it's true. And I confirmed it with what I just saw."
Ohhh! I see!: "So I thought, if we're going to be forming a team with powerhouse sync pairs, we'd better do our best to amp up our own strengths."
Ah, I get it. And we fight as a team, right?: "Right. I thought, if we're going to be forming a team with powerhouse sync pairs, we'd better do our best to amp up our own strengths."
"Having a team full of Trainers who treasure the bond they have with their Pokémon... I know that would give me confidence!"
"And just so we're clear...I want to battle on a team with YOU, <player>."
"Together, we'll aim for the top! The best of the best among Pokémon Trainers!"
"Let's give this our all. What do you say?"
Of course!/How could I say no to that?!: "Brilliant! Thanks!"
Sync Pair Story - A Day with Sawyer
"Hi, <player>. I wasn't expecting to see you here."
What are you doing?: "Lear asked if I'd join him for some training, so we've been doing that all day."
You came here with Lear?: "Yeah. Lear asked if I'd join him for some training, so we've been doing that all day."
"I know that Lear has changed quite a bit, but I didn't know that he'd learned something like that from his mother."
"If it's OK with you, would you mind telling me a little more about what his mother was like?"
"I see... So Lear's mother helped to bring you two together."
"But that behavior is a bit unusual."
"In most cases, Honchkrow make their cronies take care of work like that... But yours is very proactive and does it by itself."
"So his gratitude was so strong that it overcame his natural instinct. For the queen's sake, he protects the kingdom."
"S-Sawyer?!"

  • After being defeated
"Now I see... You're as strong as—no, even stronger than I'd heard."

"Stoutland is the ace of my team, and I depend on him a lot. I'd love to show you how strong he is sometime."
  • If spoken to again
"The key to bringing out a Pokémon's full strength is getting to know it inside and out."

  • Random conversation

"You know, I did a fair bit of research on Pasio a while back."

  • If spoken to again

"You know, I've always preferred to pause and give things a lot of thought."
"If you brainstorm your battle strategies beforehand, you'll be able to quickly adapt to any obstacle you face later on."
"However, just because that method works for me doesn't necessarily mean it's best for you."
"Everyone should be free to seek out whatever battle methods work best for them."

"Oh! Also, apparently students at this academy wear uniforms."
"Haha! It'll probably suit you!"
