In the core series

Pokémon Black and White

Castelia City
  • Prime Pier
"I heard this lady's scream and ran after the thief as fast as I could. But this city is so big and so crowded... I'm afraid I lost them."
"But that's so bad! Taking people's Pokémon is really bad! 'Cause it's really nice when people and Pokémon are together! They each have something the other doesn't, and they help each other!"
"I'm gonna be Bianca's bodyguard. So you go after those bad guys, OK?"
  • Gym Street
"Phew, we got lost. Even with the directions from the Xtransceiver, I couldn't figure it out!"
"OK! This time, I'll join the fight! Come on, Bianca. You too!"
"I am! It's the blackB/whiteW Dragon-type Pokémon, right?"
"Bianca! Why are you thanking them? They take people's precious Pokémon!"
"What are you doing? Why are you letting them get away?!"
"OK, if you're happy..."
"Don't worry! I'll keep being your bodyguard!"
"Also, thanks for looking for the Pokémon! Here, this is for you! See you!"
Opelucid City
"What was that about? That speech was off-the-charts strange!"
"Oh! Mr. Alder! ...And the guy/girl who helped out that time."
"Are you talking about Reshiram? Or Zekrom? What's the sudden interest?"
"Oh, no! The Dragon-type Pokémon get along so well!"
"Aww... He's gone. Is he OK? He looked kinda scary."
"You bet! If it's Opelucid City, I can take you anywhere. As for the story of Reshiram and Zekrom, we'll tell you all we know about it! This way!"
"That way!"
"Just a little farther!"
  • In front of Drayden's house
"This is it!"
  • In Drayden's house
"That single Dragon Pokémon, along with twin heroes, brought a new region into being. And people and Pokémon had happy lives!"
"In its pursuit of truth, the white Dragon-type Pokémon sought to usher in a new and better world... Its name was Reshiram. And the other, the black Dragon-type Pokémon, sought ideals and to usher in a new world--a world of hope. Its name was Zekrom."
"But, but... The two heroes' sons started the battle again! And an instant later, Reshiram and Zekrom destroyed Unova with fire and lightning! Then, they disappeared! But, but... If people work with Pokémon in the right way, we don't have to worry anymore about the world being destroyed. I mean, Reshiram and Zekrom worked hard for everyone and made a new region! So, it should be all right, I think."
"Yeah! So I'm never gonna forgive Team Plasma for trying to separate Pokémon and us!"
"Everyone, people and Pokémon can get along and be happy. That's awesome!"B
"Yay! Look out! I'm really, really strong, just like Drayden!"W
"Guess what!! I can teach you the strongest Dragon-type move! Fun, huh? Want me to teach your Pokémon this move?"
  • Yes; if player has Pokémon in the party that can learn the move
"OK, great! Which Pokémon should learn this move?"
  • If a Pokémon that knows Draco Meteor is selected:
"This one? Um, but... it looks like this Pokémon already knows Draco Meteor."
  • After one of the player's Pokémon learns Draco Meteor
"Draco Meteor's power is really amazing! But after you use it, your Sp. Atk stat goes down."
  • Yes; if no Dragon-type Pokémon in the player's party can learn the move
"Let me see... Well, this Pokémon can learn the move, but you need to have a really strong bond of friendship first. I don't think I can teach it yet."
  • Yes; if player has no Dragon-type Pokémon in the party
"OK, great! Oh, but... You don't seem to have a Pokémon that can learn this move."
  • No
"OK! Well, if you change your mind, come again, OK?"
Opelucid GymW
  • Before battle
"Hi! I'm Iris, the amazing strong Gym Leader! Tell me... What Pokémon are you using? How will you fight? Ooh, I'm super curious, so let's just get started!"
  • During battle
"The pain of my Pokémon... I feel it, too!"
  • After sending out last Pokémon
"No! Not yet! No! We can fight on!!"
  • Being defeated
"Aghhhh... I did my best, but we lost..."
  • After being defeated
"Whoooa! That was so cool! I'm sooo happy I could battle a Trainer as strong as you!"
"Hey, that's your eighth Badge, right? That's so cool! Now every Pokémon will do what you ask, no matter how big they are! Know what? I'll give you this TM, too!"
"Dragon Tail doesn't just do damage. It sends the other Pokémon back to its Poké Ball, too! Ooh, hey! I wonder how Mister Alder is doing? I wonder if he's battling that Trainer called N in the Pokémon League right now? Do you know about the Pokémon League? It's past Victory Road, at the end of Route 10!"
  • If talked to her again
"Ooh, hey! I wonder how Mister Alder is doing? I wonder if he's battling that Trainer called N in the Pokémon League right now? Do you know about the Pokémon League? It's past Victory Road, at the end of Unova!"
  • Post-game
"You've been on a journey and seen a lot of the world. I'm like that, too! I'm from way out in the country. I'm really happy that I've gotten to meet lots of different people and Pokémon!!"
N's Castle
"No need to worry!"
"I won't lose! No way! No way! No way!"
Cynthia's villa
"Oh, hey! Did you see Cynthia's Garchomp? It's too cute!"
"Soon, Drayden and I are going to ride the cruise ship! Castelia City is wall-to-wall people, but if I'm with him, I'll be OK!"
"Sometimes I think about the village where I was born, but I'm totally OK! Because I met lots of Pokémon--and all of you!"
"Look! Look! It's the ocean!"
"The ocean is so pretty. I love it! So I stayed underwater a long time. I made everyone worry!"
Badge CaseW
Know what? You were very strong! I'll never forget you, ever!

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

Castelia City
"Huh? Burgh vanished again?"
"Hmm... Isn't Burgh always vanishing, though? He always says he's got artist's block and just goes wandering out of the Gym."
"Hi there! Who are you?"
"... Looking for Team Plasma? But Team Plasma disbanded two years ago!"
"I guess that doesn't matter! You're having problems, so I'll help you out!"
"Hmm... Now where would suspicious people go to hide?"
"! That's it! That might be where they are!"
"Hey, c'mon! Thumb Pier is past here!"
"If you mention a suspicious place in Castelia City, the only places that come to mind are Narrow Street and here!"
  • Near Thumb Pier
"This way! This way! C'mon! Have a look!"
"You can go inside the sewers from here! Whaddaya think? Seems pretty suspicious, right?"
"Yep! The sewers are a perfect place for hiding!"
  • After defeating Team Plasma in the sewers
"! Your friend... He seemed pretty mad. Did everything go OK in the sewers? So what are you going to do now? You ran into Gym Leader Burgh in the sewers, didn't you? Maybe you should go to the Pokémon Gym and see how far you've come! I'm sure battling will help your Pokémon come to understand you better as a Trainer, too!"
Opelucid City
"Yahoo! I haven't seen you since I ran into you in Castelia City! Are you here to battle Grandpa? Yep! Opelucid City's Gym Leader, Drayden, is my grandpa. We're not really related, though! Oh! The Gym is that way! Before challenging it, you might want to go to Route 9! Still, your Pokémon really respect you! I feel how much fun your Pokémon are having, even from inside their Poké Balls! Good luck!"
Pokémon League
  • Upon entering (initial time only)
"Welcome, challenger!"
"I've been waiting for this!"
  • If the player attempts to leave
"Whaa?! Where are you going?"
  • Before battle (initial)
"Know what? I really look forward to having serious battles with strong Trainers! I mean, come on! The Trainers who make it here are Trainers who desire victory with every fiber of their being! And they are battling alongside Pokémon that have been through countless difficult battles! If I battle with people like that, not only will I get stronger, my Pokémon will, too! And we'll get to know each other even better! OK! Brace yourself! I'm Iris, the Pokémon League Champion, and I'm going to defeat you!"

  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"The pain of my Pokémon... I feel it, too!"
  • Upon sending out last Pokémon
"I'll hone my mind and become one with Pokémon!"
  • Last Pokémon at critical health
"No! Not yet! No! We can fight on!!"
  • Being defeated (initial)
"Aghhhh... I did my best, but we lost..."
"Phew... I gave everything I had, but still... I just couldn't win... Thanks, though! We're going to keep aiming higher!"
  • After being defeated
"I'm upset I couldn't win! But you know what? More than that, I'm happy! I mean, come on. By having a serious battle, you and your Pokémon, and me and my Pokémon, we all got to know one another better than before! Yep, we sure did! OK, let's go!"
"OK! Go on ahead! Hurry!"
"So, this room is the Hall of Fame! Your name and your Pokémon's names will be recorded here so these important things will never be forgotten: That you are an excellent and kind Trainer! That you are considerate toward your Pokémon, and you give them your whole heart! And that your wonderful Pokémon believe in their Trainer with all their hearts, and together you have a strength that knows no bounds!"
"Hey, c'mon! Oh, excuse me... <player>! To the Trainer standing before me! And to the Pokémon at your side! Your beautiful bond has grown strong through battle! In order to make this bond an eternal treasure, your names shall be recorded here!"
  • Hall of Fame (rematch)
"You've made it here again! Your name and your Pokémon's names will be recorded here so these important things will never be forgotten: That you are an excellent and kind Trainer! That you are considerate toward your Pokémon, and you give them your whole heart! And that your wonderful Pokémon believe in their Trainer with all their hearts, and together you have a strength that knows no bounds!"
"Hey, c'mon! Oh, excuse me... <player>! To the Trainer standing before me! And to the Pokémon at your side! Your beautiful bond has grown strong through battle! In order to make this bond an eternal treasure, your names shall be recorded here!"
Memory Link - A New Light
"Yay! I did it! Haxorus, thank you! I won because of you!"
"What did you want to talk to me about, Grandpa?"
"Yep! I was the strongest!"
"I'm so glad I came to Unova! There are many different people and so many different Pokémon! And you know what... In the Village of Dragons, people take living alongside Pokémon for granted. I was surprised some people in Unova didn't think that way!"
"Alder was smiling, though."
"Alder was really, really strong! And even when I felt a bit weak, he encouraged us! He said that even when their backs are against the wall, my Pokémon have an intense look in their eyes. So, that's why I won, but I feel like I still have a lot to learn."
"Are these new clothes? OK, I'll change into them right now!"
"Wooow! It's such a flowing dress!"
"But you were fine, right? I can tell! Your Haxorus loves you very much!"
"I've already decided! I know what kind of Champion I will be! There's a myth in Sinnoh that says that the reason why Pokémon jump out is because they want to thank people. I'm sure that we and Pokémon have helped each other and enriched the world since ancient times. These memories have been engraved in each Pokémon's heart! So, I want Pokémon and people to get closer and closer! As the Champion, I want to tell that to everybody!"

"Um... I think she said she wants to battle!"
""Let's have a great match!" or something along those lines!"
"Yep! We've been together for ages! She's like a big sister to me!"

"By the way, where's Zekrom? Is it in a Poké Ball right now?"
"Wow...a Legendary Dragon Pokémon..."
"OK, I know where we should go next!"
"Follow me!"
"This is the Pasio arena!"
"It's normally used for Pokémon battles, but there aren't any matches happening today."
"Oh... Do you not like Pokémon battles, N?"
"Ah! Zekrom!"
"Different ideas? A chemical reaction?"
"I don't really get all that, but I guess it means you don't hate Pokémon battles! Me, I love to battle!"
"Oh?"
"Yes, I know."
"Hm? How so?"
"Why not?"
"You know, the former Champion of Unova, Alder, was really, really strong."
"But he lost to you, right?"
"Alder always used to say..."
"the ones who change the world are always the ones who pursued their dreams."
"I think that's why you beat him!"
"Because you've been pursuing your dream of making Pokémon happy!"
"There's no way I could hate someone like that! And also..."
"Zekrom is so calm around you."
"I know you can understand what Pokémon say, but I can tell what dragons are feeling!"
"Huh?"
"N..."
"Thanks! I'll do my best!"
"Thanks, Bianca!"
"N..."
"Battle me!"
"I've always wanted to battle you! You defeated Alder, after all!"

"Go get 'em, Haxorus!"
"Hold tight! We'll get you out of this!"
"Wha—?"
  • A Gray World
"The king of Team Break?!"
  • No more Good-byes

Pokémon Center
  • Random conversation
"I grew up in a mysterious place called the Village of Dragons."
"It's a really awesome place where people and Dragon-type Pokémon live together in harmony!"
"Haxorus was basically my neighborhood buddy when we were growing up. Nowadays, we might as well be family!"
"Hmm... If we were really family, would that make Haxorus my big sister? Weird, since I'm the one always taking care of her."
  • If spoken to again
"Before my Haxorus evolved, she was smaller than I am! Can you believe that?"
"She was so itty-bitty. She used to play inside my hair everywhere we went!"
  • Random conversation
"Whenever I'm walking around downtown Pasio, I can't help fidgeting and looking around everywhere..."
"Where I grew up, my only playgrounds were forests and waterfalls. Being in the big city makes me so nervous!"
"Playing tag with Salamence, hopping from tree branch to tree branch, is super fun!"
"You should come play with us sometime, <player>! I'll teach you some cool tips for playing tag!"
  • If spoken to again
"It's kinda hard to compare the big city to somewhere full of nature--they're way too different!"
"When I'm surrounded by nature, it makes me think of my hometown, the Village of Dragons. It's nice and nostalgic!"
  • Random conversation
"I've been around Pokémon my whole life, and battling has always been like second nature to me."
"Before I knew it, I'd gotten to be super strong!"
"Getting to battle all the time used to seem super normal to me, but it's actually kinda awesome!"
"And also getting to meet and become friends with so many cool people! That part is super awesome, too!"
"Let's aim to be the best of the best Pokémon Trainers out there!"
  • If spoken to again
"I feel like together we can both grow sooo much stronger!"
"Imagine what the view would look like! Standing proudly at the top-- the greatest Pokémon Trainer ever!"
  • Special log-in conversation (generic)
"There you are, <player>! I've been craning my neck like a Haxorus trying to find you around here!"
"I'm glad I got to meet up with you today! We should go do some exploring!"
  • Special log-in conversation (morning)
"I'm gonna let my Pokémon do some sunbathing this morning, while the sun's nice and bright!"
  • Special gift conversation
"Here, take this! I'm pretty sure it'll be useful!"
"Haxorus said it might be dangerous if I step on it, so she brought it over!"
"Haxorus looks super big and strong, but she's actually really gentle and well behaved!"
"Then again...she can get pretty scary when she's mad!"
  • Special Unova Rally event conversation with Elesa and Skyla
"Speaking of summer, remember when we went to Caitlin's villa? That was so much fun!"
"Now that I'm thinking about it, I wonder which one Cynthia went with..."
"Remember? That summer, Cynthia was trying to decide which would look better on her..."
"The white swimsuit or the black one."
"I think the black one would be best. She looks so great in black, after all!"
Black!: "See? I thought so!"
"Yeah, which swimsuit would be best? The white one or the black one?"
"If she keeps this up, I'm gonna need a vacation from this vacation!"
