No: "You don't look like you're scared, but you are, aren't you?"
"Now you want to know my number, don't you?"

Pokégear Phone

  • Calling her
"Hello, hello, hello... Oh, hello, what are you up to? I'm just fine, thanks! Many of the Gym Leaders are much stronger than I am. We've just got to work harder!"
"Hello, hello, hello... Oh, hello, what are you up to? I'm just fine, thanks! My schedule's fairly open on Monday afternoons. Would you mind calling me back then?"
"Sorry? I'm afraid I can't hear you very well. Must be a bad connection. Can you call again from somewhere else?"
  • Her calling the player
"This is Janine. How are you doing? Hey, can I talk to you about my dad? Only if you want to hear, though. Seriously? I might talk your ear off if I'm not careful!"
"This is Janine. How are you doing? See, I've been training with my dad since I was little--to be a Gym Leader. I haven't even considered taking any other path, really. It's my dream to someday become a better Gym Leader than Dad!"
"This is Janine. How are you doing? Falkner in Violet City... He's talking about his dad all the time! Seriously, he's such a daddy's boy, he needs to become his own person sometime, you know? What do you mean, I should talk? Ha ha--mind your own business!"

Sync Pair Story - A Day with Janine
"Hmm, I see. So that's how you're gonna fight, huh?"
What are you doing?: "Oh, <player>! Hey there!"
"I was, uh... I was watching the townspeople."
Do you see someone you know?: "Oh, <player>! Hey there!"
"No, I was watching strangers."
"I was watching the movements of all the Trainers and Pokémon in town."
"I was also watching the Pokémon battles that were happening all over."
"This is a part of my training, too!"
"I've been out here since early this morning!"
You really work hard on your studies, don't you?: "You got that right!"
You're just slacking off, aren't you?!: "No—I'm not! This is training!"
"I train every day with Ariados."
"But what makes Pokémon battles deep is the fact that they're more than just tests of strength."
"It's suuuper important that you read what your opponent is thinking and build your strategy around that!"
"I was watching all of these Trainers and Pokémon..."
"so I can learn to read one—even two—steps ahead in battle."
Well, I learned something today!/That's awesome!: "I know, right?"
"With perfect strategy is how a ninja fights!"
"My father has always told me that I must train not only my body but my mind and spirit, too!"
"But...no matter how perfect your strategy is, it doesn't count for anything unless you are connected with your Pokémon."
"I learned that the most important thing is for the Trainer and the Pokémon to have a trusting relationship."
I see./I can see that being really important.: "It's not like Ariados and I need that kind of advice, though! We have each other's back all the time!"
"All the pain and sorrows that we went through... We were able to overcome them together."
"Right, Ariados?"
"Considering what good partners we are, I know we won't lose to anybody!"
We'll give you a run for your money!: "Well then, I guess that makes us rivals!"
Even your dad?: "Of course!"
"We could beat my father and his Crobat!"
"With our sync strength, Ariados and I will only get stronger!"
"Stronger than you...and stronger than Father!"
Pokémon Center
  • Random conversation
"People in Kanto say that Weezing are Pokémon that eat poison gas and get bigger."
"And would you believe that they are really popular among girls?"
"Yeah, I figured you wouldn't. I might be the only girl that does like them."
  • If spoken to again
"I love my Weezing."
"I might sometimes make him angry and make him explode, though."
  • Random conversation
"My father is Koga, of the Elite Four! I want to become more like him. That's why I have to train even harder!"
"Father is very strong and strict. He is also cool with how skilled of a Pokémon Trainer he is!"
"But more importantly, he's kind! Isn't he awesome?"
"But I won't lose in the PML! I'm still a Pokémon Trainer first and foremost and a daughter second!"
  • If spoken to again

"nobody realizes it's me if I ever dress up."
  • If spoken to again
"There are a lot of fashionable people on Pasio."
"But whenever I dress up, everybody asks if it's just another disguise."
"I mean...that's not really my intention."
  • Random conversation
"My ninja uniform is specially tailored! It's made from Ariados silk!"
"It's really durable! And even better, it's warm in the winter and really cool in the summer!"
"But the best part is that it makes me feel as if Ariados is always protecting me."
  • If spoken to again
"People sometimes make gloves or scarves with Ariados silk, too."
"Maybe I can make you some!"
  • Random conversation
"Hey, <player>. What do you think of Poison-type Pokémon?"
"I think it's great that each Pokémon has moves that it alone specializes in."
"And they use those moves to get any advantage they can and become stronger, whether their type is Fire, Grass, Water, or even Poison."
"Of course, Poison isn't one of the popular types, but I'm not ashamed to say that I like it."
  • If spoken to again
"You can ask me anything about Poison types! I'll teach you everything I know!"
"I'm learning a lot about moves from you, too, <player>. It's nice to be able to exchange knowledge."
  • Random conversation
"My father is a member of the Elite Four! He's one of the best Pokémon Trainers in the world!"
"I inherited my Gym from my father!"
"I still have a lot to learn, but one day, I'm going to become so strong that both my father and all the other Gym Leaders will acknowledge me!"
  • If spoken to again
"I want to become stronger so that I'll be a better Gym Leader!"
"I have to study more about poison and practice my ninja techniques... There are a lot of things I have to do!"
"I'm going to be challenging you to battles a lot more in the future, so be ready for that!"
  • Random conversation
"I'm not one to brag, but I think I'm pretty strong!"
"Of course, I still have a lot to learn, and I'm not nearly strong enough for my father to accept me."
"But as long as I'm with you, I know I can surpass all my limits!"
  • If spoken to again
"I apparently have a little bit of stage fright."
"But whenever I'm talking to you, I can relax and use my full strength!"
"So let's stick together! I don't think I can do this without you!"

"Whether it's a Pokémon or an item, there's always a right place to use it!"
  • After giving out item
"You can find a lot of cool stuff caught in Ariados's web. Isn't that cool?"
"When I was a kid, I was clumsy and would get caught in Ariados's web myself."
"Oh, really? It's nice to know that there's another girl out there who likes Poison types."
"I wonder what her training was like. My father's training worked me to the bone..."
"We must train even harder, then!"
"There are so many strategies that Poison types excel in. I wonder what kinds of moves she uses..."
"I'm getting excited just talking about it! One of these days, we should go challenge that dojo!"
"Not before I show her the essence of a ninja's moves!"
