  • Start of turn:
  • When asleep:
"Still not up, eh..."
  • With low health or a status ailment:
"This ain't looking so great..."
  • When victory is near:
"Right. Let's clinch this thing."
  • Otherwise:
"Okay! Looks like it's our turn!"
  • Start of battle:
  • When attacking a castle:
"Time to get down and dirty!"
  • When defending a castle:
"Let's tear up the battlefield!"
  • During battle:
"A battle for the fate of the kingdom... Come on, <Pokémon's name>! Let's do this in style!"
  • When ordering to attack:
"Hey! <Move's name>!"
  • When ordering to go to battle:
  • To a kingdom:
"I can almost taste it... A battle for the ages is about to begin!"
  • To a wild Pokémon location:
"Who're we gonna run into, I wonder..."
  • Upon forming a link:
"You and I will change the world, <Pokémon's name>!"
  • When using an item:
"<Item> time!"
"Set your faces to stunned!"
  • After winning a battle:
  • If he attacked a castle:
"So now you know why they call me Ransei's Greatest Warrior, eh?"
  • If he defended a castle:
"Yup! How 'bout a round of applause for Ransei's Greatest Warrior?"
  • When defeated:
  • If recruitable:
"Whoa, you're good. I'm pretty taken with you..."
  • If defeated by something other than the enemy:
"Well, you gotta roll with the punches."
  • Otherwise:
"Well, at least we had some fun, eh?"
  • When being recruited:
"Excellent! I just hope I don't cause you too much trouble."
  • When Terrakion appears in a kingdom:
"How interesting! I think I’d better go take a look."
  • When he has linked with Terrakion:
"Hey! You’re one of those legendary Pokémon, aren’t you?! You look pretty tough–just as I hoped! I can tell you and I are going to do some real damage together!"
"A hundred Pokémon already? Well, that should be enough to keep this place going. I'm a drifter, see. I don't like to be tied down. Not to people, and not to kingdoms. It's not easy sometimes, but it's the only life I know. Looks like the people here don't need me anymore. Time for me to hit the road!"


Stylish, with a love of interesting and unusual things, he has a tendency to drift from kingdom to kingdom. His talent as a Warrior, however, is not to be underestimated.
