Quotes

Malie City Outer Cape
"Hey! Listen, listen, listen. You've got to hear this!"
Regardless of choice: "Gee, thanks! ♪ The name's Gester! I know you don't know me, but you know how everybody has their favorite poses for when they throw Poké Balls and whatnot in battle? Those moves are called your battle style. And I'm the choreographer who came up with all those battle styles, once upon a time. But I don't have a successor to pass all my knowledge on to. Which is why I need you."
"I want you to be my battle-style successor!"
"Look, I'm your elder here and I'm asking you a favor! You can't say no!"

"Now you can use the girlish style in battle! Just come talk to me if you want to change your battle style anytime."
Reverent style
