These are Grant's quotes in the Pokémon games.

In the core series

Pokémon X and Y

Cyllage City
"Oh dear... If you're here for the Bicycle race, I'm afraid you're too late. The race is over, and I took first place. I feel bad that you missed it. Here--allow me to give you this Strength HM in consolation. If one of your Pokémon uses the move, it will be able to push large rocks around."
"However, if you want to use the move outside of battle, you'll first need a Badge from the Gym I run in this city. On that note, I'll be waiting for you in the Gym. Come challenge me at your leisure."
Cyllage Gym
  • Before battle
"I've been waiting in eager anticipation! What have I been waiting for? For a worthy challenger to appear! It's quite an achievement to have climbed all the way up here. Very impressive, actually! I have a feeling that our battle will turn out to be worth the wait! I hope you'll show me that your skill as a Trainer surpasses even mine."
  • Upon being defeated
"You have proven to be a wall that I am unable to surmount!"
  • After being defeated
"There are some things that seem out of reach no matter how hard you try. However, it's important that you never give up--no matter the opponent or the odds. I could tell from our battle that you and your Pokémon understand that. To commemorate such an impressive show of teamwork, please accept the Cliff Badge!"
"With the Cliff Badge in your grasp, you should have no issues working together with Pokémon up to level 40. This even applies to Pokémon you've received from other people in trade. And that's not all. You also get...this!"
"It's Rock Tomb. With this move, a Pokémon can hurl rocks at its target, not only inflicting damage but also lowering the target's Speed and preventing it from moving. Now that you've become a master wall climber and conquered this Gym, it's time you thought about how to apply your skills in other areas! Think about how you can improve yourself, as well as the Pokémon that are always by your side. When you find the answer, that's when you'll truly be able to smile!"
  • Post-game
"Have you heard of the Battle Chateau on Route 7? I like to take the occasional trip there. If it pleases you, I hope you might honor me with a rematch there someday."
Battle Chateau
  • Before battle
"There is only one thing I wish for. That by surpassing one another, we find a way to even greater heights."
  • Upon being defeated
"You continue to be a wall that I am unable to surmount!"
  • After being defeated
If giving the player an item: "To commemorate such an impressive show of teamwork, please accept this gift!"
"Yes, this is the way it should be. This way both humans and Pokémon will grow."
  • If the player is defeated
"Do not give up. That is all there really is to it. The most important lessons in life are simple."

  • Off-screen, as "???"
"He's incredible, isn't he? Even more than the rumors make him out to be."
  • After appearing, as Grant
"I'm sorry if I startled you... I couldn't help but be impressed."
  • Off-screen
"Look at Steven... He doesn't waste a single movement with his commands, and Metagross matches him at every beat."
"I feel like only a Champion could be that perfectly in sync with their Pokémon."
  • On-screen
"Ah, my apologies. I'm Grant, the Gym Leader of Cyllage City in the Kalos region."
"I was just doing some rock-climbing on the cliffs over there when I spotted you all training."
"When I heard the commotion, I decided to head this way to see if anything was wrong."
"I didn't expect to see such an expert display..."
"Pardon me, but... Um, Steven? Would it be all right if I challenge you to a Pokémon battle?"
"I've been hoping for an opportunity like this since I first heard the rumors about you."
"It's something I've looked forward to for a long time. What do you say?"
"Really? What is it?"
  • The Real Secret!
"Whew... Defeating the Champion is a wall that I am unable to surmount."
You were really strong!: "That's my line! Your teamwork was amazing. Truly a sight to behold!"
Bet we could beat you again!: "Well, I won't let you win so easily next time. I'm going to continue to reach for the top—it will be me who triumphs when we meet again."
"That reminds me... You mentioned you were curious about something earlier, Steven?"
"They are! I've always thought they fit well with my style. There's no special meaning behind them or anything, though."
"I think we share a lot of things in common."
"You're as passionate about stones as you are about Pokémon battling, and it's the same way with me and sports."
"My love for sports is like a driving force that keeps me moving forward..."
"and the experience I gain along the way is something I can use in my battles, too."
Story Event - Pasio Eggsplorers
  • A Toge-pickle
  • If spoken to
"No, that's not it."
"They found a really cool rock, and now they're arguing about who gets to keep it!"
  • If spoken to again
"Why don't we leave it here so everyone can come and admire it? That way, no hard feelings."
Solo Event - A Sweet Secret
  • A Secret between Athletes
"I don't think I've ever seen this before. Where'd you find it?"
"Haha! We athletes need to be careful about our public image. It's pretty hard to hide my sweet tooth, though!"
"Let's just keep that a secret, then. Come on! Let's dig in!"
Sync Pair Story - A Day with Grant
"Well now... Look who we have here. What brings you up here to the mountains today, <player>?"
I was actually looking for you./I was curious what you were doing.: "Oh? Did you follow me up here?"
"Well, sorry to disappoint you, but we just came to scope out the area today in preparation for the real climb."
"We're practicing so that one day, Amaura and I can conquer this mountain together."
But it's dangerous!: "Of course it is! That's why we make sure we take every safety precaution possible."
"Don't worry—we'll still be extremely cautious. After all, mountain climbing is never 100 percent safe, no matter how well prepared you are."
I believe in you!: "Thank you! I'd love to ask you to join us on the climb..."
"but it can actually be quite dangerous."
"It's important to be vigilant, no matter how many safety precautions you've taken."
"I came to compete in the PML in order to reach greater heights as a Trainer."
"But that's not the only reason I decided to come here to Pasio."
"This is an artificial island... That means someone had to create all of this beautiful, majestic nature."
"I knew that climbing the mountains here would be unlike anything I've ever done before!"
"Ahh, I'm getting excited just thinking about it... I can't wait to start climbing."
Is there something at the very top?: "No, nothing special."
Do you get a prize for doing it?: "No, there's nothing like that."
"Just a wide, open view of the landscape below."
Then why climb up there?: "Well, when I see a wall in front of me, I've just got to climb it."
I don't get it.: "Well, what if I told you it's a lot of fun for me?"
"Pokémon battling and rock-climbing are really different, but they have a lot in common, too."
"They can both feel like a wall in front of you. You just have to climb over that wall and keep aiming higher and higher."
"Wouldn't you agree? I feel like the whole process is really important."
Yeah, and that's awesome.: "When it comes to Pokémon battling, you and I are a lot alike."
"The look of enjoyment on our faces is as plain as day, even when we're up against a tough opponent."
It sounds awfully tough...: "Really? But I thought you were like me when it comes to tackling challenges...pushing yourself hard, past your limits, sometimes."
"Oh! Did you hear Amaura make that sound just now? Maybe we'll get to see it tonight."
"Legends say that the cry of an Amaura is a sign that an aurora will appear in the sky."
"I've never actually seen one myself, though."
"Wouldn't it be amazing if Amaura and I climbed to the top of this treacherous mountain to witness that beautiful aurora together?"
"Knowing there may be a special reward like that at the top makes me want to go for it even more!"
"What do you think, Amaura?"
"I don't know if he understands me or not... I think whether we decide to go up will depend on how Amaura feels."
"Anyway, <player>..."
"Rock-climbing is my own challenge to myself, but Pokémon battling can be something we strive to conquer together."
"Overcoming a tough battle is like climbing a giant wall—there's beauty on the other side that you won't find anywhere else..."
"That's how I like to look at it, anyway."
Sync Pair Story - Amaura's Evolution
  • Before battle
"What a coincidence. I've often wondered the same about you. If you're half as strong as your cooking is delicious, then it should be an amazing battle!"
"All right! I can't wait! Hm? Are you looking forward for dessert, too, Amaura?"
"It looks like you overcame another wall."
"You're the best, partner! Let's aim for even higher summits!"
Pokémon Center
  • Random conversation*
"My Amaura is always on his best behavior, and his skin feels so nice and cool to the touch."
"When I look at his long neck, I feel a sense of friendship and closeness."
"I feel like he's just as eager as I am."
  • If spoken to again
"I wonder what sort of things Amaura can utilize his long neck for. Other than eating food in high places, that is."
"I'd love to sit down with him and leisurely debate all of the many possibilities."
  • Random conversation
"One time, a chunk of the cliff collapsed where I was rock-climbing."
"I actually found a fossil among the stones that fell..."
"and it turned into a Tyrunt when I had it restored at the Fossil Lab."
"Funnily enough, I found my Amaura's fossil at those very same cliffs."
  • If spoken to again
"I wonder how I happened to find my selfish Tyrunt in the same place I found my sweet Amaura..."
"Maybe our friendship goes above and beyond the walls of our differences. "
  • Random conversation
"I get along really well with Siebold, one of the Elite Four of Kalos, where we're from."
"He and I are a lot alike in that we're both completely devoted to bettering ourselves and what we do."
"I'm sure he's on a deep dive into Pasio cuisine right now, honing his skills as a chef."
  • If spoken to again
"All this talk about Siebold is making me miss his delicious cooking."
"I'll have to ask him to whip me up something tasty the next time I see him."
  • Random conversation
"This might surprise you, but I have a little bit of a sweet tooth."
"I'm trying to maintain my current body weight, though, so I can't have too many sweets."
"I limit myself to one slice of cake each week, but sometimes it's so hard to resist."
"Then again, that one slice of cake tastes even more sublime after a whole week of not eating any."
  • If spoken to again
"Strictly refraining from doing something for a while makes me even more excited to do that thing."
"I continue to be strict with myself so that I can savor that feeling!"
  • Random conversation
"These stones I use to decorate my hair are all the rage back in Kalos."
"I'm the one who started the fashion trend, actually..."
"Incidentally, that's how I earned my title as a trendsetter and fashion leader in Kalos."
"I can be your fashion advisor if you like, <player>."
  • If spoken to again
"These hair stones are unique in the same way that we're all unique as people."
"When your clothes and accessories are a perfect match for your unique personality—that's TRUE fashion!"
  • Random conversation
"Having a daring, adventurous spirit is most important of all."
"When it comes to sports, there's no question. But challenging yourself when it comes to food is also important!"
"I wonder what sort of flavors Pasio has to offer us..."
"Now THAT'S an adventure I'd dare to get behind!"
  • If spoken to again
"Competing in the PML is an incredible challenge—a mountain unlike any other I've climbed before."
"I wonder what it'll look like at the summit, towering over all the other Trainers. I'd love to see for myself."
"That is, after I've climbed over my FIRST wall—defeating you, my friend."
  • Random conversation
"You and your Pokémon seem like you have a really close relationship with each other."
"Relationships with Pokémon can change just like relationships with people, though, depending on how dedicated you are."
"But with someone as dedicated as you, I'm sure there'll never be any issues."
  • If spoken to again
"There are some things you just can't reach, no matter how far you stretch out your hand."
"But you never give up—you keep on fighting with everything in your heart. "
"I feel lucky to have found friends that are as talented and spirited as you and your Pokémon."
