In the core series games

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

NaranjaS/UvaV Academy
  • In Class 1-A
"Hello, hello, everyone."
"We have some exciting news this morning. Who wants to hear it?"
"I suppose I should have told you sooner, but we have a new little friend joining our happy homeroom as of today."
"All right! You can come on in!"
"Could I trouble you for a few words introducing yourself?"
"Does anyone else have a question for their new classmate?"
"Well, thank you for telling us a bit about yourself, <player>.
"I'm Mr. Jacq. I teach biology here at the academy, and I'm also your homeroom teacher."
"That's your seat. Second row from the front."
"All right, you ragamuffins. Be nice and friendly to our new classmate!"
  • If talked to inside Class 1-A
  • After the Treasure Hunt begins
"Ah! Hello, hello!"
"Have you gotten used to things here at the academy, <player>?"
Yes: "Great! Glad to see you're having fun."
No: "Well, don't worry. I'm sure you'll get a hang of things soon! In the meantime, feel free to come see me if you need help with anything!"
"Oh! Have you been using the Pokédex app?"
"I'm, uh, hehe...I'm the one who made it, you know."
"Every time someone using the app catches a Pokémon, that data gets sent to me."
"It's really helping with my Pokémon research!"
"So be sure to catch any new Pokémon you find and work on filling in your Pokédex."
"For your first goal, let's aim for, say...30! Register 30 Pokémon in your app!"
"Let me know once you've done so!"
"Hello, hello. Have you been out there catching lots of Pokémon?"
"Aim to register 30 Pokémon species in your Pokédex! Come tell me when you're done, OK?"
  • After registering 30 Pokémon in the Paldea Pokédex
"Ah! Hello, hello, <player>!"
"I see you've already registered 30 species of Pokémon to your Pokédex for me!"
"Wow! So you caught this kind of Pokémon? And this one?! All this data... This is the best!"
"Ah...sorry about that. I got a little excited there."
"But I get the feeling that you're going to be a great help in my Pokémon research."
"Here, take these. Consider it my way of saying thanks."
"You sure are good at catching Pokémon, aren't you, <player>?"
"For your next goal, let's aim for 100 species!"
"Remember—when you find a Pokémon you've never seen before, give a Poké Ball a throw!"
  • If talked to again, before registering 100 Pokémon in the Paldea Pokédex
"Hello, hello. Have you been out there catching lots of Pokémon?"
"Aim to register 100 Pokémon species in your Pokédex! Come tell me when you're done, OK?"
  • After registering 100 Pokémon in the Paldea Pokédex
"Ah! Hello, hello, <player>!"
"I see you've already registered 100 species of Pokémon to your Pokédex for me!"
"Wow! Little Pokémon! Big Pokémon! Whoa, you even have data on Pokémon of this specific size?! So much data! SO MUCH TO ANALYZE!"
"Ah...sorry about that. I got a little excited there."
"My Pokémon research is moving forward at a great pace thanks to your efforts."
"Here, take these. Consider it my way of saying thanks."
"You're a natural at this Pokémon catching thing, aren't you, <player>?"
"For your next goal, let's aim for 200 species!"
"I know that's a tall order, but keep tossing those Poké Balls and don't give up!"
  • If talked to again, before registering 200 Pokémon in the Paldea Pokédex
"Hello, hello. Have you been out there catching lots of Pokémon?"
"Aim to register 200 Pokémon species in your Pokédex! Come tell me when you're done, OK?"
  • After registering 200 Pokémon in the Paldea Pokédex
"Ah! Hello, hello, <player>!"
"I see you've already registered 200 species of Pokémon to your Pokédex for me!"
"Wow! Pokémon from the mountains! Pokémon from the sea! Wait, what?! No way! You even found Pokémon in a place like this?!"
"Ah...sorry about that. I got a little excited there."
"My Pokémon research is moving along super-duper splendidly thanks to you!"
"Here, take this. Consider it my way of saying thanks."
"You're a bona fide Pokémon catching professional, <player>!"
"For your next goal, it's finally time to go for a completed Pokédex! Aim for 400 species!"
"This is no easy feat, but I'm sure you can do it."
"Keep tossing those Poké Balls, and don't give up!"
  • If talked to again, before registering 400 Pokémon in the Paldea Pokédex
"Hello, hello. Have you been out there catching lots of Pokémon?"
"Aim to register 400 Pokémon species in your Pokédex!"
"Once you do, press the X Button in your Pokédex app and you'll get a nice little completion mark! I'd love if you could show me when you get it."
  • After registering 400 Pokémon in the Paldea Pokédex
"Ah! Hello, hello, <player>!"
"What?! Are you telling me you've already registered 400 species of Pokémon to your Pokédex?!"
"Wow! WOW! You did it! You completed the Pokédex! That's amazing! REALLY amazing!"
"Research on the Pokémon of the Paldea region is moving ahead like never before! And it's all thanks to you, <player>!"
"You know, I visited this strange shop the other day and happened to pick up a little something..."
"Might not seem like much to get a secondhand gift, but here! From me to you!"
"I wish I could give you something a bit better for your efforts..."
"Ah! Director Clavell! This student of mine COMPLETED their Pokédex!"
"He/She really surprised me too, pulling off a feat like this."
"Programming is another of Director Clavell's skills, you know."
"But anyway, you sure did great with the Pokédex, <player>."
"If completing the Pokédex was one of the treasures you were after, then I'd say you've had a resounding success on your Treasure Hunt!"
"Hehe... Well, I am his/her homeroom teacher, after all. Got to act like it from time to time, I guess."
"You may have completed your Pokédex, but there is still plenty of adventure to be had!"
"I hope you'll keep looking for new Pokémon to befriend here in Paldea!"
  • Pokédex Evaluation
"Try exploring the Paldea region on foot if you want to encounter lots of different Pokémon!"
"Remember—Pokémon can be found in tall grass, caves, oceans, and all sorts of other places!"
"Battle lots of Trainers to encounter more species of Pokémon and register them in your Pokédex!"
"Once a Pokémon is registered as "battled," you can look up its habitat and find it for yourself!"
"Trading Pokémon with other Trainers can also help you fill up your Pokédex!"
"With Surprise Trades, you can trade with players from all over the world!"
"Different Pokémon species prefer to be out and about at different times of day!"
"Try visiting the same place during the morning, afternoon, evening, and night to encounter a variety of Pokémon!"
"Are you evolving your Pokémon? There are quite a few species you can encounter this way!"
"Let your Pokémon battle to gain experience, or use certain items on them to have them evolve!"
"There are many Pokémon you can only encounter through trades!"
"Why not try trading Pokémon with Trainers from a different academy than your own?"
"Just a bit more to complete that Pokédex! You can do it!"
"Congratulations! Your Pokédex now contains x volumes!"
"In celebration of your achievement, please take this item/here are items!"
  • After the player completes the Paldea Pokédex
"You've encountered all the Pokémon in the region and completed the Pokédex!"
"Congratulations on all your hard work coming to fruition, <player>!"
"A-amazing! You completed the Kitakami Pokédex!"
"That means you've encountered every single Pokémon there is to find in the land of Kitakami!"
"Exploring new places on your own two feet is a real treasure of an experience, isn't it?"
"You know, I think you deserve a special diploma in recognition of this magnificent achievement..."
"Come find me in the tall grass on Reveler's Road when you have some time!"
"Amazing! You completed the Blueberry Pokédex!"
"That means you've encountered every single Pokémon there is to find at Blueberry Academy!"
"Exploring new places on your own two feet is a real treasure of an experience, isn't it?"
"You know, I think you deserve a special diploma in recognition of this magnificent achievement..."
"Go see Director Cyrano over at Blueberry Academy's entrance when you have some time!"
"Hmm...yeah. It's feeling better, but this particular Pawmi may just be a bit meek, I suppose?"
"I had Nurse Miriam take a look as well, and she says there's nothing wrong with it healthwise!"
"So it shouldn't have any injuries, ailments, or the like."
"Sorry that I couldn't be of any help..."
  • Biology classes
Biology (1)
"Hello, hello. My name's Jacq, and I'll be your Pokémon biology teacher."
"In my class, we'll all learn about the various quirks of our beloved Pokémon together!"
"I hope you all come to love Pokémon even more from the things you learn here."
"In today's class, I'll teach you a great way to get to know Pokémon in more depth."
"If you'd like to become better friends with your Pokémon... you can let them come out of their Poké Ball and walk along with you! Sounds great, huh?"
"You can use the ZR Button to throw a Poké Ball and let out the Pokémon inside."
"Nothing cuter than watching your Pokémon run around underfoot, if you ask me."
"Once you let your Pokémon out, try speaking to them—they're sure to respond in some way. It's a great way to get to know them better!"
"However! Letting your Pokémon out of its ball isn't such a great idea in some locations.
"Can anyone tell me where it is that you shouldn't have your Pokémon walk along with you?"
Near the water: "It's certainly true that some Pokémon aren't fond of water, but we do have floating platforms they can use, so being near water isn't an issue."
Inside buildings: "That's right! Great job, <player>. I see you did your homework."
In tall grass: "Pokémon love tall grass! I can't see them having any problem walking with you there."
"The correct answer is that we should not walk with our Pokémon indoors. How about that!"
"Some Pokémon might damage walls, desks, and other things walking around inside buildings, so it's not allowed regardless of the species."
"Therefore, please only let your Pokémon out of their Poké Balls while outdoors. OK, everyone?"
"I think I see them out and about in classrooms from time to time, but still..."
"Anyway, you may become even closer friends with your Pokémon pals by walking together!"
"Oh! I almost forgot—keep in mind that you can only walk together with your lead Pokémon."
"Remember—use the ZR Button to throw a ball and let out the Pokémon inside."
"You'll also want to remember that throwing a ball at a wild Pokémon will start a battle!"
"It looks like that's all the time we have for today. See you all next class!"
Biology (2)
"Hello, hello. I hope everyone's ready to learn some new things today!"
"Did you all try using the ZR Button to let your Pokémon out as I taught you in our last class?"
"Walking along with your Pokémon lets you see how unique and cute they all are."
"I'd also highly recommend picnics for when you want to spend some quality time together with the Pokémon in your party."
"You can get them all around the table to make sandwiches and play—it's really a lot of fun!"
"If you want to learn more about making food, Mr. Saguaro's class is the best place to go!"
"Now, sometimes, while you're enjoying a picnic with your Pokémon..."
"you may find something very, VERY important in the basket next to your table!"
"This very important something is what Pokémon are born from. Let's all say it together!"
Boxes!: "Huh? Um...<player>, it looks like you're the only one who said Boxes. We sometimes send Pokémon to Boxes for safekeeping, but they're not born from them!"
Poké Balls!: "Huh? Um...<player>, it looks like you're the only one who said Poké Balls! I don't believe there have been any Pokémon discovered yet that are born from Poké Balls!"
Eggs!: "Phew! You all got it right!"
"The very important something I'm talking about is...a Pokémon Egg!"
"It's not clear where these Eggs come from, but they're probably placed in the basket rather stealthily by the Pokémon at the picnic."
"Walking around with an Egg will help warm it, which allows it to hatch."
"Eggs won't warm up by sitting in Boxes, though. You need to have them in your party!"
"And here's one more super important thing I'd like you to remember about Eggs."
"Pokémon entrust us with their Eggs because they believe in us!"
"So, I sure would be happy to see you all being responsible parents for your little Pokémon Eggs!"
"Whoops. My most important point came right as the bell rang. Well, see you all next time, I guess!"
Biology (3)
"Hello, hello. I hope everyone's ready to learn some new things today!"
"I seem to remember teaching you all about the importance of Eggs in our last class together."
"Ah, on that note, is everyone using their Pokédex?"
"It registers Pokémon born from Eggs as well as those encountered via other methods, so don't you worry about that!"
"And, uh, hehe...just so you know, I'm the one who developed the Pokédex app!"
"It was waaay before I started teaching here at the academy, though."
"Back then, I was a researcher."
"In fact, Director Clavell wasn't working in education at the time, either!"
"He was researching alongside me at the same facility."
"We got to research Pokémon together day in, day out... Those sure were fun times.
"I got yelled at all the time, though. Heh."
"Wait a second, how did I get onto this? Pretty sure I was talking about the Pokédex..."
"Uh... Anyway! Today, I'd like to teach you about catching Pokémon."
"As you all know, a great way to catch a Pokémon more easily is to first lower its HP."
"But there's another way to up your chances of a successful catch. Can you guess what it is?"
Give the Pokémon a Berry: "Huh? Hmmm... Maybe that's a bit of advice from another region? The common understanding here in Paldea may be a little different."
Inflict the Pokémon with a status condition: "Wow! That's right, <player>! Great job!"
Prove you're stronger than the Pokémon: "That's a rough-and-tumble way to look at things, <player>... I guess it's true that sending out a strong Pokémon can turn a battle in your favor, though."
"The correct technique for making Pokémon easier to catch is to inflict them with a status condition."
"Sleep is an especially effective status condition. It makes Pokémon drastically easier to catch!"
"If you have a Pokémon that can use moves that put opponents to sleep, like Sleep Powder or Hypnosis, filling up your Pokédex will be a cinch!"
"There are other ways to improve your catch rate as well, like using Poké Balls specifically designed to be effective against certain Pokémon."
"Eating food that gives you Catching Power works, too—or sneaking up on Pokémon from behind to catch them by surprise when you start a battle!"
"If you're having trouble, you may want to make the rounds to the Gyms to get Gym Badges."
"Earning Gym Badges will make it easier to catch Pokémon of higher and higher levels!"
"Please do come show me your Pokédexes once they start to fill up!"
"Another day, another enjoyable class. Oh yeah, don't forget—our next class will be a test!"
Biology Midterm
"Hello, hello, everyone. Today is our midterm exam."
"It sure feels good to fill in all those empty spaces on the answer sheet, doesn't it?"
"Take your time, and contemplate each question carefully."
"All right, everyone! Time's up! I hope you all enjoyed tackling those questions!"
"That last question was just something that I'm personally curious to know."
"Don't tell the director about it, OK?"
"I'll grade these right away. I hope you're all looking forward to seeing how you did!"
Biology (4)
"Hello, hello. I hope everyone's ready to learn some new things today!"
"You all did really great on the midterm exam!"
"Thanks for answering my little question at the end, too."
"I'll be sure to keep your responses in mind."
"All right! We're now heading into the last half of our classes together."
"It's time for our knowledge to evolve and grow— just like our Pokémon!"
"Evolution...yep. Haha! Evolution!"
"Today we're going to learn about the fascinating phenomenon of Pokémon Evolution!"
"As your Pokémon battle and level up, they learn moves and get stronger."
"And for some Pokémon, once they've leveled up enough... their appearance changes, and their stats increase—sometimes by a lot!"
"That's Pokémon Evolution!"
"Pokémon become very strong when they evolve, making them trusty partners in battle."
"But! Some people prefer to keep their Pokémon in their adorable pre-evolved states."
"To do this, you just need to remember a certain button when your Pokémon begins to evolve."
"Say it with me if you already know! To cancel Evolution, press the..."
A Button!: "Huh? Um...<player>, you may be thinking of something else. The A Button has more of a decisive feel to it. Kinda like "A-OK!" don't you think?"
B Button!: "That's right, everyone! "B" for "best answer!""
C Button!: "The C Button... That has a bit of a nostalgic feel to it, don't you think?"
"The button you want when you need to stop a Pokémon from evolving is the B Button!"
"If you press this button soon after a Pokémon begins to evolve, you can stop it from changing."
"You can also let the Pokémon hold an item known as an Everstone to keep it from evolving."
"And keep in mind that the requirements for Evolution differ from Pokémon to Pokémon."
"Some may evolve by having a certain item, such as a Fire Stone or Thunder Stone, used on them."
"Others may have to learn a specific move or defeat a specific Pokémon in battle to evolve."
"The way Primeape evolves into Annihilape is especially strange."
"You see, there's a certain move that—"
"Whoops. Sorry, looks like we're out of time!"
"I guess we'll have to end the class there today. Thank you all for your attention!"
Biology (5)
"Hello, hello. I hope everyone's ready to learn some new things today!"
"But before we get going, do you all remember the final question from our midterm exam?"
"Well, Director Clavell found out about it somehow, and I got yelled at. Whoops."
"Apparently he could tell I was hiding something just by looking at me."
"He must've noticed all the color flush right out of my face! Haha!"
"Speaking of color, today I'd like to teach you all about colors as they pertain to Pokémon!"
"Some Pokémon have slightly different coloration or patterning on their bodies based on their gender or individual differences."
"In very rare cases, a Pokémon may have wildly different coloration compared to others of the same species."
"We call these specimens Shiny Pokémon."
"It is quite rare to cross paths with one."
"Does anyone here know what the likelihood of finding a Shiny Pokémon is?"
1 in 40: "It would be nice if they were that common! We would be able to do far more research on them. But they're actually quite a bit more rare."
1 in 400: "That's not a bad guess. But they're actually even rarer than 1 in 400!"
1 in 4,000: "Wow! That's right! You may have the makings of a Pokémon Professor, <player>!"
"Shiny Pokémon appear at a rate of 1 in 4,000. Isn't that amazing?"
"The probability of encountering one in the wild is the same as hatching one from an Egg, too!"
"Eggs from a pair of Pokémon raised around differing languages are a special case."
"There is a higher than average chance that a Shiny Pokémon will hatch from these Eggs."
"But we haven't been able to figure out why that is just yet."
"I've also heard rumors of a charm that increases your likelihood of finding Shiny Pokémon when you have it in your Bag—can you believe that?!"
"This claim can't be scientifically verified, but it sure would be fun if it were true."
"Whoops...there's the bell."
"That's all for today. Thank you for your attention!"
Biology (6)
"Hello, hello. I hope everyone's ready to learn some new things today!"
"Next time we meet, we'll have our final exam. That means today is our last actual class."
"And the topic for this last class will be...Pokémon forms! You can just think of forms as the shapes or appearances that Pokémon have."
"There's also a phenomenon called a form change, where a Pokémon's appearance changes under certain conditions."
"Cyclizar, for example, which we regularly ride on as transportation here in Paldea, has three forms."
"First is its basic form, where it walks on four legs. Second is its battle form, where it stands on its hind legs to engage in battle."
"Finally, there's its ride form, where it inflates its throat sac and its tail so we can ride on its back."
"Though we can use something you're all carrying with you now as an even better example!"
"Yup, I'm talking about your phones! Some smartphones are inhabited by a certain Pokémon."
"Does anyone know the Pokémon I'm referring to?"
Rotom: "You're a regular expert on Pokémon AND technology, aren't you, <player>!"
Pikachu: "It sure would be adorable if it were Pikachu in our phones—and it would probably make us want to walk around more, too! But too bad, that's not the right answer!"
Heracross: "Haha! I see where you're coming from, <player>! Heracross can learn a move called Smart Strike! Smartphone, Smart Strike... Well, unfortunately, there's no connection!"
"The Pokémon inside your smartphone is Rotom, and it does all sorts of things to help you out."
"A Rotom inside a Rotom Phone is special, so it doesn't try to enter other electronics."
"An ordinary Rotom, however, can change form by entering washing machines, microwave ovens, and other electronic appliances."
"Rotom is a bit of an exception, though. Many Pokémon that change form do so simply by holding an item or by having one used on them."
"Oricorio, for example, has four different forms it can change between when given certain nectars."
"Pokémon may even change type or learn different moves when they change form."
"Form changes are different from Evolution in that the Pokémon can return to its original form."
"And unlike Shiny Pokémon, which can't change their special coloration, the same individual Pokémon can go back and forth between its forms."
"There's a lot to dig into with this form change phenomenon, as you can see!"
"We can all learn something from Pokémon here, don't you think? Bit of a stretch, but..."
"I'd be happy to see you all enjoy your time at the academy to the fullest...and change form into a new version of yourselves!"
"Or something like that, anyway!"
"Oh! I almost forgot!"
"Regional forms, which vary based on what region a Pokémon came from, don't change like other forms. They're an innate—"
"Whoops. Heh...there's the bell."
"I guess I was scatterbrained Mr. Jacq right up to the very end, huh?"
"I had a great time teaching all of you. I hope you'll do your best on the final exam!"
Biology Final
"Hello hello, everyone. Today is our final exam."
"It will cover everything I've taught you so far! But I'm sure you all will do just fine."
"Take your time, and contemplate each question carefully."
"OK! Time's up whether you like it or not! I hope everyone enjoyed tackling those questions!"
"Hehe... I snuck in a little bonus question there right at the end again. Shhh, our little secret— don't tell the director!"
"I'll grade these right away. I hope you're all looking forward to seeing how you did!"
Pokémon Gym
  • In the sixth Gym's lobby
"Hello, hello, <player>!"
"How goes your Treasure Hunt? Figured out what you're hunting for yet?"
Sure have!: "That's great! Look at you, knowing exactly what you're after!"
I have no idea...: "Haha. I get it. Director Clavell doesn't like questions with easy answers, does he?"
"Many students choose to make the Gym circuit a part of their Treasure Hunt."
"It's no easy feat, but even making the attempt is a worthwhile experience."
"That's why I was waiting here—to make sure you know your homeroom teacher's got your back!"
"This should be handy for your Treasure Hunt."
"I hope you'll keep working on that Pokédex of yours too—since I did make the app and all!"
"That's all from me. Just do your best and keep out of danger, OK?"
Academy Ace Tournament
  • First time
  • Before battle
"Hello, hello, <player>."
"I hear you went out on your Treasure Hunt and wound up becoming a Champion."
"That's quite the achievement!"
"I guess I'm the homeroom teacher for two Champion Rank students now."
"I won't lie—I'm feeling a wee bit of pressure here!"
"I've got to work hard so my students don't outshine me too much, huh?"
"Well, then! Let's get started, shall we?"
"Here's hoping I do OK!"
  • In battle
After sending out his first Pokémon: "Show me what you've got—in your own way at your own pace."
Upon sending out his last Pokémon: "Wow! You sure are strong! Is there some secret in the way you raise your Pokémon?"
Upon Terastalizing his Farigiraf: "Just a little energy and there you have it! Now watch as my Pokémon Terastalizes!"
Upon first using Farigiraf's Psychic: "Let's try something a little different. I wonder what effect this will have on the battle."
Upon being defeated: "Wooow! You did great!"
  • After being defeated
"Hehe. You beat me! You're quite the strong player, aren't you, <player>?"
"You're more fit for the teaching position than I am with that boundless confidence of yours!"
"Uh-oh. Uh... Hi, Director. Are you angry with me? Hehe..."
"Well, I'm going to get yelled at. Good luck in the coming battle!"
  • After the player wins the first Academy Ace Tournament
"Hello, hello, <player>. This is Jacq."
"Congratulations on winning the Academy Ace Tournament."
"I sure am proud to have one of my students become the academy's ace!"
"Ah, don't worry, Director Clavell. I'll get to the point now."
"I'm actually calling to tell you that highly difficult Tera Raids are cropping up all over the place."
"We're getting report after report from academy students about their Pokémon getting injured."
"We teachers have split up to investigate these raids, but we're still a bit shorthanded."
"Sooo, we were wondering if we could enlist your help, since you're the academy's ace and all. How about it, <player>?"
Leave it to me!/If I can find the time...: "Woo-hoo! Thank you!"
"Your Pokédex automatically records the data we need as you go, so don't worry about that!"
"For now, I'd like you to just take on a lot of these tough Tera Raid Battles!"
"But don't get in over your head. Even the academy's ace needs to be careful!"
"I sure would be sad if one of my precious students got injured."
"Anyway, we're counting on you!"
  • Subsequent visits
  • Before battle
"It's a honor to battle you, <player>. I think I'll go all out for this one!"
  • In battle
Upon sending out his last Pokémon: "Yep, you sure are strong! I need you to share your Pokémon-raising secrets with me."
Upon Terastalizing his Farigiraf: "We're all ready to Terastalize! Time to activate my Tera Orb."
Upon first using Farigiraf's Psychic: "How about this move, then? I think it will be at least somewhat effective."
Upon being defeated: "You've really been working hard on your study of Pokémon, haven't you?"
  • After being defeated
"Yep! Nicely done! Keep up the winning streak for me, won't you?"
Via Rotom Phone
  • After winning 15 5-star Tera Raid battles
"Hello, hello, <player>. This is Jacq."
"Thanks for taking on all those Tera Raid Battles for us!"
"Our investigation is moving along thanks to you, <player>—we have some new data."
"It seems that Terastal energy is released from the Great Crater of Paldea from time to time, and that's having an effect on the crystals."
"Tera Raid crystals that get hit by especially strong blasts of this energy are apparently transforming into black crystals."
"The Tera Pokémon found at these black crystals are incredibly powerful..."
"So much so that average Trainers wouldn't stand a chance against them."
"You're anything but average, but I'm afraid this is too dangerous—even for you, <player>."
"Even if you find the location of one of these black crystals on your map app, please do NOT— I repeat—DO NOT take on the Tera Raid there!"
Got it!: "Hmmm... You almost seem a little TOO willing to agree."
I dunno...: "I mean it! Don't read into that like there's some kind of hidden meaning!"
"Sorry for getting you involved in this only to ask you to step away, but..."
"Whatever you do, do NOT go looking for these black crystals!"
"I'm counting on you to make the right choice here!"
  • After winning a 6-star Tera Raid battle
"<player>! This is Jacq!"
"We just saw the Terastal energy reading from one of the black crystals disappear a moment ago. Do you know anything about that?!"
I won!: "Whaaat?! You battled the Pokémon there?!"
It sure was rough!: "*sigh* I thought I made it clear that it was too risky."
"Well, in any case, I'm just glad that you're OK, <player>."
"Your efforts have helped us come to understand the laws governing Terastal energy emissions."
"Thanks for your help. I'm sending you something as a thank-you gift."
"Still, even after all this, it seems that the amount of energy being emitted is slowly growing."
"That means we may continue to see more black crystals appear in the future."
"I don't imagine you'll listen to me even if I try to stop you, so I won't be too firm with you... but please continue to be careful out there!"
"Ah, by the way, Director Clavell will be madder than a rampaging Primeape if he finds out, so let's keep this between us two!"
"Talk to you later!"
  • ???
"Hello, hello, <player>. This is Jacq."
Regardless of choice: "Sorry to bother you while you're probably out searching for some nice treasure..."
"You see, we have a school trip every year around this time. It's a special collaboration between our academy and another school. And would you believe it, <player>? Your name was one of the ones chosen to attend! You'll get to do study and experience the great outdoors off to the east—in the land of Kitakami! It's a long trip to get to this year's destination, so we can't send too many students this time. You really are a lucky one, getting selected as one of the participants! Come to the school's entrance hall when you're ready to hear all the details. Of course, you don't HAVE to take part. But this kind of chance isn't likely to come again, so you should really give it a shot if you're interested! Hope to see you soon!"
NaranjaS/UvaV Academy
"Ms. Briiiar! I'm so sorry I'm late!"
"Oh, hello to you too, <player>! What a lucky scamp you are, getting to take part in a school trip so soon after transferring here! I sure am happy for you! I wish I could go too..."
"Huh? Oh! I'm sorry, Ms. Briar. I got a bit carried away..."
"That's a school in the Unova region, you know. Ms. Briar helps set the curriculum there."
"Ah yes, well, there's...not much I can do about that without permission from the Pokémon League and Director Clavell..."
"Ah...well... Hmmm..."
"Oh! Sorry, <player>! Forgot all about you for a moment there! Anyway, the school trip. Think of it as a chance to continue your Treasure Hunt on a grander scale—to search BEYOND Paldea's borders! I'll even provide you with a special update to your Pokédex app. If you'd get out your phone?"
"And there we go! All done! Now you can go wild registering all the Pokémon you find around Kitakami too! Oh, and don't worry about a permission slip for the trip—I already cleared things up with your mom! You just go and have fun!"
Reveler's Road
"Oh, hello, hello, <player>! Enjoying that school trip, are you?"
Regardless of choice: "Hehe... I came to check on how you're doing! I AM your homeroom teacher, after all."
"Once I got here, I decided to do a bit of research on the Pokémon of Kitakami, and-"
"Oh! That's right! Sorry!"
"I got so engrossed in my own research that I actually forgot to come find you, didn't I!"
"Well, how about I make up for it by treating you to a picnic?"
"I thought something like this might happen, so I borrowed all the usual picnic things from Director Clavell."
"Dig in! I hope you like the sandwich I made!"
"It may, um, look a bit strange- but I can assure you it tastes great!"
"I don't get out much, so this kind of fieldwork sure wears me out quick..."
"I can't believe how you kids run all over the place for your Treasure Hunt! You're really something!"
"Oh...? Could there be something in my basket?"
"Feast your eyes on that!"
"A Pokémon Egg appeared in the basket!"
"Quite the mystery, isn't it? I only brought Gulpin to this picnic with me, and yet..."
How could it have appeared, then?: "Hehe... OK, I confess! Truth is, I had this egg with me the whole time."
Did you put the Egg in the basket?: "Hehe... I can't get anything past you, can I, <player>?"
"You know about the Pokémon Eggs you can find during picnics, right?"
"Whenever a Trainer doesn't have the means to care for an Egg they find, they can have it sent to the academy, where we'll take care of it."
"But then I thought, "Say, wouldn't it be better to have a great Trainer raise the Pokémon instead?" So I brought this Egg with me!"
"And now...it's yours, <player>!"
"Hehe... I know it's odd of me to come all the way to Kitakami just to hand over a Pokémon Egg."
"But I knew it would be safe with you, <player>."
"That reminds me- are you still using your Pokédex app over here too?"
"You should be able to fill the Kitakami Pokédex by catching Pokémon that live around here."
"I'll be doing fieldwork in the area for a while..."
"so let me know if you manage to complete the Kitakami Pokédex in your app!"
  • After registering 200 species in the Kitakami Pokédex, before claiming the final Pokédex completion reward
"Keep striving toward that goal of registering 200 species in your Kitakami Pokédex!"
"If you manage to pull it off, open up your Pokédex App and press the X Button to get it certified. And then come show me, of course!"
  • After claiming the final Pokédex completion reward
"Hello, hello, <player>!"
"Looks like you've caught...200 kinds of Pokémon that can be found around the land of Kitakami!"
"Wait, are you telling me...you've caught them all?!"
"Wow! WOW! A complete Kitakami Pokédex! This is great—no, YOU'RE great!"
"Thanks to all your hard work, I don't think there's anything more to be done when it comes to surveying the Pokémon that live here in Kitakami!"
"I really wish I had something to give you to commemorate all your effort..."
"Oh! I know!"
"I'll give you this charm I got at Kitakami Hall! It's a limited-edition souvenir they only sell there!"
"Oh, and can you show me your Rotom Phone for a second?"
"Thanks to the diploma feature Director Clavell helped with, we can celebrate your achievement in style, <player>!"
"See? You can get a special message from the company that certifies Pokédex completion!"
"You may have completed this Pokédex, but that doesn't mean your school trip has to end!"
"I hope you'll keep meeting lots and lots of new Pokémon friends around Kitakami!"
  • If spoken to again
"Hello, hello, <player>!"
"Kitakami summers sure are hot and muggy, aren't they? My lab coat is soaked through with sweat!"

"Aww, a Togepi! How adorable."

"I actually developed a Pokédex app in Paldea."
"Yep! I'm a teacher, too."
"So I want my students to use my app and learn more about our beloved Pokémon!"
"Huh?! A battle, you say?"
Of course I accept!: "Wow, <player>! You sure are motivated."
"I've got no reason to turn down this invitation—I'll give it my all too!"
"Hehe. I had fun too!"
"Of course! I want to get to know you better, too."

  • Mr. Jacq's Outdoor Classroom
"Let's all have fun and learn a lot today!"
"Hmm... That's a tricky question."
"Well, I suppose...I'll start off by talking about a certain Mythical Pokémon!"
"That Pokémon is called Mew!"
"Mew's genetic composition is said to possess the information of all Pokémon..."
"Ah, in simple terms, "genetic composition" means something like a blueprint for an organism."
  • Off-screen
"It's been said that if the information of all Pokémon is written in that blueprint..."
"then Mew must be the very first Pokémon—the ancestor of all Pokémon, basically!"
  • On-screen
"Ahaha... Didn't see that one coming..."
"If only Ms. Raifort were here to provide some historical knowledge to help me out..."
"Um... So this is a story—well, more of a legend, really—that people from a long, long time ago would tell..."
"As you can see, there are still lots of mysteries about Pokémon!"
"And there still isn't a definitive answer to your question of where they came from."
"There are many other theories on this subject, so if you're interested, please feel free to do your own research after class today!"
"Hello, Volo! Thanks for your help today!"
  • The Trainer Who Can Understand Pokémon

"Huh? Aren't you coming too, Volo?"
"OK, I'll see you later, then!"
Sync Pair Story - A Day with Jacq
"Ah! Hello, hello, <player>!"
"Pasio is such a lovely place, isn't it?"
"There aren't any wild Pokémon, but everyone brings such a variety along with them."
"That's why you can meet so many different kinds just by walking around town."
"For example, that Pikachu with you..."
"Pikachu has a wide habitation area, so you can see them in a lot of different regions."
"But even if they might look like the same, if you check veeery carefully, you'll find that they have differences based on region."
"Maybe your Pikachu could also be—"
"Oops, sorry! Ex-researcher habits die hard, I suppose."
"You might already know this, but I'm currently a biology teacher in the Paldea region."
"I love talking about Pokémon, and I wanted to encourage more people to like them too."
"So maybe I was meant to be a teacher."
I'd like to hear more!: "Sure, I can happily go on!"
What sorts of things do you teach?: "Oh, are you interested?"
"Well then, let's have a special lesson about Farigiraf."
"Girafarig, the Pokémon which evolves into Farigiraf, has a brain in its head and another in its tail."
"That said, the brain in the tail is small, so it's only in charge of simple things like spatial awareness."
"But when Girafarig evolves, its two sets of brain waves sync up, and its psychic power grows 10 times stronger!"
"Mysterious happenings like this are what make Pokémon so fascinating!"
"I think this gives us an important way to think about us people, too."
"For example, think of when you face a difficult problem."
"Do you split up responsibilities among your friends and try to find a solution separately like Girafarig?"
"Or do you work with them and face the problem together like Farigiraf?"
"Let's say those are the two options for solving the problem."
"Which would you choose, <player>?"
Girafarig's way: "I see. People do have different strengths and weaknesses, so that may be the more effective approach."
Farigiraf's way: "I see. We might be weak as individuals, but by working together with others, we can be stronger."
"I respect your choice of method, <player>."
"But don't forget—both approaches depend on you having friends that you can count on!"
"So make sure you keep on taking care of them!"
