These are Clemont's quotes in the Pokémon games.

In the core series

Pokémon X and Y

Lumiose City
"Not quite... I just have to check on the lighting circuit here."
"All right! Everything's ready! The future is now, thanks to science! Prism Tower lighting system... ACTIVATE!"
"Excellent... My Prism Tower lighting system worked brilliantly, just like all my inventions."
Lumiose Gym
  • Before battle
"Oh! Thank you again for coming. Allow me to introduce myself..."
"Bonnie! How many times do I have to remind you... It's not my own strength that matters, nor any other Trainer's. None of us would be here if it weren't for our Pokémon."
"She's right about that, at least. Let's both do our best in battle."
  • Upon being defeated
"Your passion for battle inspires me!"
  • After being defeated
"Oh, Bonnie... When will you learn there's no shame in losing? I'm glad whenever I get to learn something new thanks to strong challengers like this boy/girl here."
"Now, to the victor go the spoils! This Voltage Badge belongs to you!"
"If you have a Voltage Badge, you will be seen as a friend and equal by any Pokémon up to Lv. 70. And here. Take this TM as well..."
"Arghhh! Bonnie, you--! ... ... ... The future is now, thanks to science! Behold the machine that gives: Technical Machines! ...I just wanted to be able to say it, OK? At least once."
"Look, I'm not... It's not like I'm just trying to make myself stronger or... ... ... ... All I'm trying to do is enjoy every day to the fullest with my Pokémon, while doing the science that I love with my inventing."
  • Post-game
"How did the world look after defeating the Champion? I really want to understand it. The way the world looks to a real Pokémon Champion... I'm trying to invent a machine that will let me see it for myself."
Battle Chateau
  • Before battle
"Oh! I'm glad that we got to meet yet again like this!"
  • Upon being defeated
"Your passion for battle inspires me!"
  • After being defeated
If giving the player an item: "The future is now, thanks to science! Power on, my new precious gift-giving machine... Mach 2!"
"I'm glad whenever I get to learn from other strong challengers. Thank you for the battle!"
  • If the player is defeated
"Looks like my Trainer-Grow-Stronger Machine, Mach 2 is really working!"

Main Story PML Arc - Chapter 26 - The Future Is Now!
  • Sync Pair Pinger, Activate!
"Hello, everyone!"
"I'm glad we became friends, Sophocles. It really is fun to talk about science with you."
"You got it! It's all ready to go!"
"The future is now, thanks to science!"
"Sync Pair Pinger, activate!"
"Don't worry. That's just the sound of our machine powering on outside."
"We call it the Sync Pair Pinger! It's a new invention that we came up with."
"...With their Trainers in hot pursuit until they both wind up here!"
"Ah, sorry. I guess we're a little too excited about our new invention. We could go on about it for days!"
"Ah! The Sync Pair Pinger has a reading!"
"Come on, everyone! Let's go take a look outside!"
"But our machine called them here! They must be strong sync pairs!"
  • Steadfast Inventors
"Maybe it just needed some time to warm up. Let's fire it up again!"
"Not to worry, <player>! I'm sure the next sync pair the machine calls over will be a strong one! Just watch!"
We're counting on you!: "We won't let you down!"
"All right. This time, I'll make some adjustments so the machine scans for the strongest sync pair in the area!"
"The future is now, thanks to science!"
"Sync Pair Pinger, activate!"
"H-huh? That's odd..."
"W-well, you see..."
"A mob of sync pairs is rushing this way as we speak!"
  • Third Time's the Charm
"But I'm not sure <player>'s team has that much time to spare..."
Maybe you should inspect it...: "But that'll just be a waste of time for you all..."
"Sync Pair Pinger, activate!"
  • Progress Is Progress!
"Sorry, everyone. You believed in our invention, even though you were short on time..."
"but we weren't able to help you out..."
"Thanks, everyone. But unfortunately..."
"A brand-new star?"
"We were so fixated on our failures..."
"Heliolisk, you too?!"
"...Was actually a success?"
Of course!: "<player>..."
"Understood! If I've been chosen by the machine..."
"I'll give it everything I've got!"
  • An Unexpected Visitor
"What? But Heliolisk and the other Pokémon reacted to it, didn't they?"
"I suppose you're right. The machine really was a failure..."
"Which means..."
"Molayne, we'll keep fine-tuning the machine."
"The...the Sync Pair Pinger is picking up something!"
"And it's the strongest reading we've gotten so far!"
"The machine worked when we thought it was a failure, and then failed when we thought it was working... So is our invention a success or not?"
Legendary Adventures - Give and Take
  • Flames of Conviction
"Professor! Just like you said, we found a suspicious device!"
"We all got together to cut off its energy! It won't be able to activate now!"
"How's that, Team Flare! This is payback for that power outage in Lumiose City!"
Story Event - The Eccentric Electrician
  • A Pair of Tinkerers
"Oh? If it isn't <player>. Where are you headed at such a late hour?"
I'm just here helping a friend.: "I see. I've come to investigate the blackout that just happened!"
Why are YOU out here so late?: "Me? I came running out here to investigate the blackout that just happened."
"Who is your friend there?"
"My name's Clemont! I'm a Gym Leader from Kalos."
"That's right! Are you interested in inventions yourself, Volkner?"
"Of course!"
"Help you...light a fire?"
"Well, I guess I don't mind, but..."
  • A Fiery, Electric Showdown!
"What?! Another blackout?!"
"All right! It's about time for Flint to power back on!"
He's awake!/Oh, good! He's back!: "Good morning, Flint!"
"Oh, well, I guess it's not morning right now. Good evening, I guess?"
"Well, great! Flint's back to normal, and the blackout seems to have ended as well!"
"By the way, Flint, what got you so burned-out that you couldn't even move?"
  • The Blackout Sparker
"You two sure are strong! We've got to work hard, too."
"Oh, are any of you thirsty after all that battling?"
"I know I am. I'll go get water for everyone!"
"That vending machine must have gone through some crazy renovations. It's flashing, changing shape, and all sorts of unusual things."
"Ah! There are other ones just like it all over the place!"
"I bet they use a lot of electricity. Maybe they're what caused the blackouts?"
"The one the Black Belts were using?"
"You mean the production model of my Trainer-Grow-Stronger Machine?"

  • Fashion Sense
"That's right! We're not gonna just stand by and let you take away something so essential!"

Sync Pair Story - A Day with Clemont
Hello!: "A-ah! H-h-hello!"
What're you doing?: "A-ah! W-w-well, I'm just doing some research!"
"Oh! It's you, <player>! You really startled me..."
"Sorry, Heliolisk. I was really in the zone for a while there."
"I've been conducting some research during my stay on Pasio."
"I'm especially interested in the energy generated by sync stones. My curiosity knows no bounds!"
"Obviously, when you're talking energy, the first thought has got to be electricity, right?"
"Electricity is produced and converted by many different things."
"For example, Heliolisk can take in sunlight and convert it into electricity."
"If there were a way to convert the energy from sync stones into electricity, it could really optimize Pasio's electrical generation!"
Energy from sync stones?: "That's right! You might be using it without even realizing it."
Electricity from sync stones?: "Yes! I'm glad you asked."
"The energy released from sync stones is created through the bonds Trainers have with their partner Pokémon."
"Simply put, it's creating energy through the power of our thoughts and emotions!"
"The bonds of friendship between people and Pokémon can illuminate our homes."
"What a wonderful thing, don't you think?"
"Looks like Heliolisk feels the same way."
"Actually, I've been working on an add-on for my Poryphone that can utilize the power of bonds..."
"I got so caught up in my work that I haven't been able to explore Pasio much. *yawn*"
Looks like Heliolisk wants you to rest./Heliolisk looks worried about you.: "Huh? Is that true, Heliolisk?"
"Hehe... I have a pretty bad habit of going off on my own and losing myself in my work."
"But in both Pokémon battles and science, collaboration leads to success."
"Thank you, Heliolisk. I shouldn't push myself so hard. And I should definitely get some rest."
"Hey, I've got it! <player>, why don't you help me test out my new prototype?"
"It's finished!"
"I call it the "Light That Pulses Once in Reaction to Sync Strength"!"
"All right then, it's time to ACTIVATE!"
"Hmm, I see... Yes, it's just as I predicted!"
It only turns on once?: "That's right. It might've worked only once, but even that was very important!"
That's the light of our bonds!: "Exactly! The future is now, thanks to this light!"
"There are so many mysteries surrounding sync strength... Sure, all that happened in this test was a single small light pulse, but..."
"with enough of those small lights, we could combine them to create an enormous light that could illuminate an entire city!"
"Thanks for all your help today! It'd make me really happy if we could work together again sometime!"
"The world illuminated by the power of the bonds everyone shares..."
"That's the future I'm working toward!"
Pokémon Center
  • During sync background preview
"The future is now, thanks to science!"
  • Random conversation
"In Kalos, we've got this training machine called Super Training!"
"If you're ever in Kalos and have some time, you should absolutely give it a try. It really helps Pokémon get stronger!"
"First, you've got to strike the training bag!"
"Tap! Tap! Taaap!"
  • If spoken to again
"I strengthened my partner Pokémon with Super Training while in Kalos."
"Apparently some Trainers want to use the machine to train themselves. And who can blame them?"
"This is it! The muscles that will make the future bright! That's true for people and Pokémon."
  • Random conversation
"My Pokémon Gym is set up inside Lumiose City's Prism Tower."
"I'm the one who created Prism Tower's lighting system. It's my masterpiece."
"You should come visit Lumiose City sometime. If you do, you should stop by my Gym, too!"
"We've absolutely got to have a battle for the Voltage Badge!"
  • If spoken to again
"My little sister, Bonnie, helps out at the Gym."
"She likes to quiz challengers who come to Lumiose Gym. It's kind of the Gym's theme. If you're planning to visit, you can look forward to the quiz!"
  • Random conversation
"Maintenance machine...ACTIVATE! Excellent... It's working brilliantly, just like all my inventions."
"I've been using a machine I created to check Pasio's electrical systems."
"There are many different species of Pokémon that feed on electricity."
"Magnemite is one of those Pokémon species. Sometimes you can find them huddled around breaker boxes during power outages!"
  • If spoken to again
"After looking into it, I discovered that Pasio has no wild Pokémon, so the island doesn't suffer from Pokémon-related electrical issues."
"That said, you never know when electrical troubles could arise."
"If you notice anything strange, let me know, OK?"
  • Random conversation
"Pokémon sure are mysterious... Even with as far as science has come, there's still so much we don't know about them."
"That's why I want to know more. The unknown is the source of knowledge."
"If only we could communicate directly with Pokémon... We'd be able to learn so much..."
"Although if you have a strong bond with a Pokémon, the two of you can understand what the other is thinking without saying anything."
"The fascinating possibilities of science have their charms, but bonds with Pokémon are important, too."
  • If spoken to again
"It's possible that sometime in the future, the power of science will allow us to speak with Pokémon."
"When that day comes, we'll be able to deepen the bonds we share with our Pokémon even more! It'll be the next generation of sync pairs!"
  • Random conversation
"For a long time, I've been passionate about inventing machines and doing electrical work."
"But I got so sucked into it all that other people often had to help me out with other things in life..."
"That's why I really like to try and help other people out now."
"Other people's smiles make me happy, so I'll keep doing my best to create new inventions."
"It'd be great to connect people with one another more and more, like circuits in a machine!"
  • If spoken to again
"So many things are different on Pasio than in Kalos. The people, the surroundings..."
"You and everyone else on the team have been a big inspiration to me, <player>."
"I've learned so much from the sync pairs here. I feel like I'm growing more and more each day."
  • Random conversation
"I've always been clueless about how to make friends with others my age."
"But being with you has changed that somehow..."
"Now I can talk to other Trainers my age without getting nervous."
"It's all thanks to you. Please allow me to repay you in some way."
"I know! Is there any kind of machine you'd like me to make for you? Don't be shy—I'll grant any request!"
  • If spoken to again
"I want to be useful to you and the sync pairs on your team."
"This isn't something I'd normally say out loud, but you've really helped me find my courage."
  • Random conversation
"Because I'm a Gym Leader, I sometimes get interviewed."
"I'm not too great at saying the right things when I'm on camera, though..."
"In interviews, I'm always asked, "What's next for you?""
"I usually give a pretty boring answer, like that I want to go to an amusement park in the Unova region."
  • If spoken to again
"A show announcer who came to some of my interviews was pretty interesting."
"She said my glasses make her heart twitch!"
"I don't think I'd ever heard that before. I didn't entirely understand what she meant, but I was pleased to hear it nonetheless!"
  • Special log-in conversation (generic)
"Oh! Hello! How are you doing today, <player>?"
"If you ever need a warm-up, just let me know. I've got a machine that'd make for a great sparring partner!"
  • Special log-in conversation (morning)
"Oh! Feeling a little sluggish this morning? Never fear! My Super Waker-Upper machine is here!"
  • Special log-in conversation (morning)

  • Special gift conversation
"Power on, my precious gift-giving machine!"
"I'd be happy to give it to you!"
  • After giving out item
"You're free to use it however you'd like. I'd be even happier if it could inspire you."
  • Special Type Team-Up Daily Type Rotation event conversation with N and Lt. Surge
