These are Lance's quotes in the Pokémon games.

In the core series

Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow

  • Before battle
"Ah! I heard about you, <player>! I lead the Elite Four! You can call me Lance the dragon trainer! You know that dragons are mythical Pokémon! They're hard to catch and raise, but their powers are superior! They're virtually indestructible! Well, are you ready to lose? Your League challenge ends with me, <player>!"
  • Being defeated
"That's it! I hate to admit it, but you are a Pokémon master!"
  • After being defeated
"I still can't believe my dragons lost to you, <player>! You're now the Pokémon League champion! …Or, you would have been, but you have one more challenge ahead. You have to face another trainer! His name is… <rival>! He beat the Elite Four before you. He is the real Pokémon League champion!"

Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal

Lake of Rage
"This lake is full of Gyarados but nothing else… So the Magikarp are being forced to evolve… Did you come here because of the rumors? You're <player>? I'm Lance, a trainer like you. I heard some rumors, so I came to investigate… I saw the way you battled earlier, <player>. I can tell that you're a trainer with considerable skill. If you don't mind, could you help me investigate?"
Yes: "Excellent! It seems that the Lake's Magikarp are being forced to evolve. A mysterious radio broadcast coming from Mahogany is the cause. I'll be waiting for you, <player>.
No: "Oh… Well, if you change your mind, please help me."
  • If talked to again after answering no
"Hm? Are you going to help me?"
Mahogany Town
  • After answering yes at Lake of Rage
"Dragonite, Hyper Beam."
"What took you, <player>? Just as I thought, that strange radio signal is coming from here."
"The stairs are right here."
"<Player>, we should split up to check this place. I'll go first."
Rocket Hideout
  • B2F
"Are you all right? Your Pokémon are hurt and tired. Here, give them some of my medicine."
"<Player>, let's give it our best for Pokémon."
  • B3F
"It takes two passwords to get into the boss's quarters. Those passwords are known only to a few Rockets. That Rocket there very graciously told me so. <Player>, let's go get the passwords."
  • After entering the generator room
"Hey! Don't be so selfish. Spread the fun around."
  • After defeating Ariana
"That did it. We defeated all the Rockets here. But I'm concerned about the young guy I battled in the process… Sorry, <player>. I saw how well you were doing, so I just hung back. Now all there is left to do is to turn off that odd radio signal. It's this machine that's causing all the problems. I don't see a switch on it… We have no choice. We have to make all the Electrode faint. That should stop this machine from transmitting that strange signal. It's no fault of the Pokémon, so it makes me feel guilty. <Player>, let's split the job."
  • If player tries to leave their side
"Leave this side to me."
  • After defeating all Electrode
"That odd signal has finally stopped. The Lake should be back to normal. You're the hero! Let me thank you on behalf of all the Pokémon. Oh, yes. You should take this. I found it here, but I don't have any need for it. That's Whirlpool. Teach it to a Pokémon to get across wild water. But keep this in mind. You can use that out of battle only with the Badge from Mahogany Gym. <player>… The journey to becoming the Pokémon Master is long and difficult. Knowing that, will you keep going? … I see. No, you're right. If you would give up that easily, you would have never chased that dream in the first place. I look forward to seeing you again!"
Indigo Plateau
  • Before battle
"I've been waiting for you. <Player>! I knew that you, with your skills, would eventually reach me here. There's no need for words now. We will battle to determine who is the stronger of the two of us. As the most powerful trainer and as the Pokémon League Champion… I, Lance the dragon master, accept your challenge!"
  • Being defeated
"…It's over. But it's an odd feeling. I'm not angry that I lost. In fact, I feel happy. Happy that I witnessed the rise of a great new Champion!"
  • After being defeated
"…Whew. You have become truly powerful, <player>. Your Pokémon have responded to your strong and upstanding nature. As a trainer, you will continue to grow strong with your Pokémon."
(After Mary arrives): "This is getting to be a bit too noisy… <Player>, could you come with me?"
Hall of Fame
"It's been a long time since I last came here. This is where we honor the League Champions for all eternity. Their courageous Pokémon are also inducted. Here today, we witnessed the rise of a new League Champion--a trainer who feels compassion for, and trust in, hisGS/toward, allC Pokémon. A trainer who succeeded through perseverance and determination. The new League Champion who has all the makings of greatness! <Player>, allow me to register you and your partners as Champions!

Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen

  • Before battle
"Ah! I've heard about you, <player>/So, you've returned, <player>! I lead the Elite Four. You can call me Lance the dragon Trainer. You know that dragons are mythical Pokémon. They're hard to catch and raise, but their powers are superior. They're virtually indestructible. There's no being clever with them. Well, are you ready to lose? Your League challenge ends with me, <player>!"
  • Being defeated
"That's it! I hate to admit it, but you are a Pokémon master!"
  • After being defeated
"I still can't believe my dragons lost to you, <player>. You are now the Pokémon League Champion! …Or, you would have been, but you have one more challenge left. There is one more Trainer to face! His name is… <rival>! He beat the Elite Four before you. He is the real Pokémon League Champion."

Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

Lake of Rage
"That red Gyarados wasn't acting right. As I feared, somebody must have forced it to evolve… Did you come here because of the wild tales? You're <player>? I'm Lance, a Trainer like you. I heard some rumblings, so I came to investigate… I saw the way you battled earlier, <player>. I can tell that you're a Trainer with considerable skill. If you don't mind, could you help me investigate?"
Yes: "Excellent! It seems that the Lake of Rage's Magikarp are being forced to evolve. A mysterious radio broadcast coming from Mahogany is probably the cause. And that suspicious souvenir shop… I'll be waiting for you in Mahogany, <player>."
No: "Oh… Well, if you change your mind, please help me."
  • If talked to again after answering no
"What do you think? Are you going to help me?"
Mahogany Town
  • After answering yes at Lake of Rage
"Dragonite, Hyper Beam."
"What took you so long, <player>? Just as I thought, that strange radio signal is coming from here."
"The stairs are right here."
"<Player>, we should split up to check this place. I'll go first."
Team Rocket HQ
  • B2F
"Are you all right? Your Pokémon are hurt and tired. Here, give them some of my medicine."
"<Player>, let's give our best for Pokémon."
  • B3F
"<Player>! In order to unlock the door to the radio transmitter, you need the voice of a certain person. The name of the person is Petrel, the Team Rocket Executive! I have found out he is hiding in their leader's office! Unfortunately though, that room is also protected with a password… <Player>! We need the password to their leader's office first!"
  • B2F
  • Before Multi Battle with the player
"Hold it! A two-on-one battle? That is so unfair! Typical of Team Rocket to be so sneaky. Allow me to join the battle!"
  • After the battle
"Sorry, <player>. I saw how well you were doing, so I just hung back. Now all there is left to do is to turn off that odd radio signal."
  • After entering the transmission room
"It's this machine that's causing all the problems. I don't see a switch on it… We have no choice. We have to make all the Electrode faint. That should stop this machine from transmitting that strange signal. It's no fault of the Electrode, so it makes me feel sad. <Player>, let's split the job."

"That's Whirlpool. Teach it to get across wild water. But keep this in mind. You can use that out of battle only with the Badge from Mahogany Gym."
"<Player>… The journey to becoming the Pokémon Champion is long and difficult. Knowing that, will you keep going? ………………… I see. No, you're right. If you would give up that easily, you would have never chased that dream in the first place. I look forward to seeing you again!"

We will battle to determine who is the stronger of the two of us. As the most powerful Trainer and as the Pokémon League Champion… I, Lance the dragon master, accept your challenge!"
  • After sending out last Pokémon
"All right! I thought this would never happen!"
  • When last Pokémon is at critical health
"I never give up, no matter what. You must be the same?"
  • Being defeated
"…It's over. But it's an odd feeling. I'm not angry that I lost. In fact, I feel happy. Happy that I witnessed the rise of a great new Champion!"
  • After being defeated

Dragon's Den (post-game)
  • Before battle
"Hi, <player>! And…you. We met at the Team Rocket hideout."
"Calm down. I was in a bit of a hurry then. Sorry for that. But…I always welcome challengers! Hey! How about a Double Battle?"
"Come on. A Double Battle is really not bad. <Player>, you'll be on my side!"
  • Being defeated
"Did you see that, Clair?"
  • After being defeated
"Just as I expected. You two make quite a team… Going solo is certainly one way to aim for the top… But that's not all there is to Pokémon battle. Although I don't feel it's necessary to remind you guys. See you, <player>, another time!"

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

"So, you're <player>! I lead the Elite Four! You can call me Lance, the dragon Trainer! You likely know that dragons are Pokémon spoken of in legends!

Your Pokémon League challenge ends with me, <player>!"

"That's it! I hate to admit it, but you are a first-class Pokémon Trainer!"
  • After being defeated
"I still can't believe my dragons lost to you. <Player>! You are now the Pokémon League Champion! ... ... ... ...Or, you would have been, but you have one more challenge left. There is one more Trainer to face! That Trainer is—"
"Haha... Your timing is perfect, Professor. <Player>! The one you will face is... Professor Oak! Well, not really. It's <rival>! He beat the Elite Four before you. He is the Pokémon League Champion."
"Professor Oak is here to officiate the crowning of the new Champion. It seems only fitting that it should be either you or <rival>. You're the two who took care of Team Rocket, after all! Now then, head onward to the stage of your final battle!"
Rematch
  • Before battle
"I'm glad you've come. The newly updated Pokémon League's reputation has really taken off! It's all thanks to you. I'd feel ashamed to call myself Lance the dragon Trainer if I didn't challenge you to a battle!"
  • Being defeated
"How could I be pushed to such a point?"
  • After being defeated
"There's no way my dragon brigade is weak. ...What I'm saying is that means your strength is truly incredible! Now then, <player>! You already know what's next, don't you? That's right, Champion. Your final challenger awaits you on the stage of your final battle!"

"Thanks. I'm glad to hear that you like it."
"But really, what's not to like about capes?"
"I see... You saw Ho-Oh on Pasio."
"This sounds like it could be interesting. Count me in, too."
"What about you?"
"It creates a rainbow just by flying... Now that's a fitting story for a Legendary Pokémon if I've ever heard one."
"There are stories about Dragonair being able to change the weather, but transforming the sky? That seems even more incredible to me."
"Hm? You OK?"
"I-I see..."
"... ... ..."
  • Off-screen, as "???"
"Got a minute?"
  • Lance and Silver
"That's not why I'm here. I just want to talk. That's all."
"It's been a while since you and I have had a chance to talk like this."

"That's why you lost to me."
"But you're different now."
  • Off-screen
"I can tell by looking at your Sneasel."
"That Pokémon has formed a deep bond with you."
"Pokémon are happiest when they're with the person they care about the most."
"For it to trust you this much..."
"It can only mean that your adventures in Johto and your time with Ethan have changed you, Silver."
"You're no longer the person you once were."
"You've become a purehearted Trainer."
  • On-screen
"... ... ..."
"Even so, I believe in you."
"That's why you should believe in yourself, too."
"Don't be a no-show tomorrow."
"Your friends <player> and Ethan will be waiting for you."
  • A Pure Heart Revealed
"Heh. I was waiting to make my debut, but there's no way I can upstage a grand entrance like that."
"It's said that Ho-Oh will reveal itself before a purehearted Trainer by shining its bright, rainbow-colored wings..."
"I wonder which of you this Pokémon will choose to be its partner..."
Main Story Villain Arc - Kanto - Team Rocket Returns
  • Where's Red?
"Yes, Red is strong... But we can't forget that he still hasn't come back."
"All things considered, I think we should make our next move now."
"I've already contacted Gym Leaders and members of the Elite Four to help us out."
"Thank you, Lillie, but it's dangerous to go alone. Why don't we form a team?"
"Thanks, everyone. Dragonite and I will do a sweep from above."
  • Seeking Strength
"Those Rockets really had a plan this time. How tricky..."
"I imagine they'd be after the professor's research on sync stones."
"She's been studying sync pairs and their bonds here on Pasio."
"And she's also been analyzing how the energy within sync stones can affect Pokémon."
  • Rocket Hideout
"And now it's time for a showdown!"
"Brock and Sabrina are on their way to help. This time, we're going on the offensive!"
Main Story Villain Arc - Johto - Team Rocket's Revival
  • Resuming Operations
"Sorry, but that's not going to happen just yet. Dragonite! Counter their attack!"
"Great battle. You almost had us."
"Exactly. You know, your team did an excellent job working together."
"It took Xatu and Umbreon working together just to deal with Feraligatr's strength..."
"and I could hardly find an opening with that teamwork your two Ho-Oh were showing."
"Paulo, maybe you shouldn't–"
"Is itDynamaxing?!"
  • On My Own
"With Eternatus?"
"Hmm... Let's go to Professor Bellis's Lab and figure out what to do next."
"Yeah. Karen, Will, and Morty decided to stay there so they can keep an eye on things."
"They're just forcing the Pokémon to Dynamax?"
"I once saw a Gyarados that had evolved because Team Rocket forced it..."
"It went on a rampage and looked like it was in a lot of pain."
"Team Rocket doesn't care about Pokémon... They just use them as tools!"
"I won't let them get away with this."
"You don't want to come with us?"
"What's up with him? He seemed a little on edge…"
"Let him go. The rest of us can team up."
  • The Cruelest and Scariest
"Yeah. Professor Sonia is from the Galar region, and she's done research on the Dynamax phenomenon."
"That's why we'd like to ask her about what's going on, but…"
"we're worried that Team Rocket might overhear our conversations if we meet up with her in town."
"Exactly. Will went to fetch the professor, so there shouldn't be any risk of her getting kidnapped along the way, either."
"We won't make the same mistakes we did last time. This time, we're going to finish the job."
"Professor Sonia!"
"Thanks for bringing her here, Will."
"Did you bring the thing I asked you about, Professor?"
"That's amazing, Professor Sonia. I can't believe you put this together in such a short amount of time."
"OK, let's give it go, then. Where's the on switch?"
"Sorry, but we're in a hurry."
"I'll have to ask you to leave!"
"OK. Then the rest of us should find their hideout before it's too late!"
  • Infiltrate the Rocket Hideout
"According to the machine, yeah."
"He might've already infiltrated the hideout."
"I told him what we know. Let's let him decide how he wants to go about it."
"We've got you cornered now."
"Why don't you put an end to this evil nonsense of forcing Pokémon to Dynamax."
"What?!"
"Giovanni..."
  • One or Many
"Your objective?"
"What? You became a Dynamax sync pair?"
"Wait... So you found another Pokémon willing to accept the malice in your heart, just like Mewtwo did?"
"I can't believe he just destroyed his hideout with a max move..."
"Silver!"
  • As Your Friend
"Oh, Ethan..."
"It turns out Giovanni can now make his Pokémon Dynamax."
"I tried to take him on with Karen and Morty, but he got us..."
"And then Silver came and challenged him to a battle, but..."
"Yeah. He must've been talking about Lear. His plan is to take over Pasio."
"Let's regroup and prepare. They won't be able to do anything right away."
  • Hearts Aligned
  • Off-screen, as "???"
"Then how about two more join the fray?"
  • After appearing, as Lance
"Yeah. We're fine, thanks to you."
Champion Stadium - Kanto Challenge: Normal
  • Summit of the Strong
"You all haven't changed one bit, I see! I must admit, I'm looking forward to these battles myself!"
"I, Lance, stand ready to give the sync pairs here a true challenge as the most formidable opponent they'll ever face!"
"Hah! You're right!"
"We've all been training hard to get stronger."
  • After completing Chapter 8 for the first time
"I see you've acquired the symbol of unity—the Harmony Badge!"
"Just one badge left to go. A Trainer of your caliber should have no problem making it to the tournament matches."
"I'll be waiting to battle you in the Champion Stadium!"
Champion Stadium - Victory Road
  • The Road to Hard Mode
"The stronger our challengers, the more experience we gain from battling them!"
"We learn from this experience, and we use it to fine-tune our skills even further!"
  • Sync Buffs: Part 1
"We were waiting for you! We can teach you about the importance of using sync moves."
"The more sync buffs you get, the stronger your team will be!"
"OK! Let's test that out in battle!"
  • Sync Buffs: Part 2
"Great! You had your entire team use a lot of moves quickly so you could use your sync move!"
  • You Did It!
"Congratulations! There's no need for words now. I have nothing left to teach you."
"All that's left is to battle to determine who is the strongest of all!"
Story Event - Two Champions
  • Intro
"I'm Lance, dragon master and Champion of the Indigo League! I never refuse a challenge!"
  • Cynthia's Perspective
  • Off-screen, as "???"
"Dragonite, Hyper Beam!"
  • After appearing, as Lance
"I doubt it has anything to do with us being cousins, Clair. But thank you for helping me get accustomed to the battle style of this place."
"Well, well, who do we have here? Training with <player> again today, Rosa?"
"Sorry, Rosa. Can it wait until after this battle? I can't let my fans down."
"Come on, Clair. Let's do this."
"Ah, that's right. I guess that leaves you two. Rosa, <player>, let's team up."
"I suppose this is as good a chance as any to see exactly what you're capable of. Give these fans everything you've got!"
  • Lance's Perspective
"I think I'm starting to like the battle style here on Pasio. It lends itself to different strategies than I'm used to elsewhere."
"Now then, you mentioned you had something you wanted to ask me before?"
"I see... Who's the greatest dragon master, me or Cynthia? Interesting question."
"And you say the whole island's been talking about this? I had no idea."
"... ... ..."
"It's true that you're strong, Clair. And it's good to have confidence in your own abilities..."
"but there's a limit to what's good and what's not. Too much pride can make you overconfident, and overconfidence can make you vulnerable."
"To get back to your question, Rosa, I think I share Cynthia's feelings about the title of who's "the greatest.""
"I know the vanity that title holds."
"A long time ago, when I was a member of the Elite Four but not Champion, I was defeated by a Trainer."
"He claimed to be the greatest of all, and he had the strength and skill to back it up."
"But eventually, a stronger Trainer came along, and even he was defeated... It was then that I realized something."
"That title—"the greatest"—can inflate your ego, but it doesn't really mean anything. It's an illusion, there one minute and gone the next..."
"The way I see it, seeking to grow and improve yourself is far more worthwhile than chasing a fleeting illusion of greatness."
"*chuckle* Glad I could bring a bit of perspective."
"Well, if you'll excuse me, I've been meaning to take a stroll around the city sometime today."
"Thanks. I'd appreciate that."
"Interesting. I wonder if they have any good capes for sale around here..."
"Hm?"
"And you, Cynthia. You seem to be keeping yourself busy here on Pasio."
"We seem to have become one of the island's biggest attractions."
"... ... ..."
"Heh, you took the words right out of my mouth."
"We may be Champions in title, but we're still Pokémon Trainers first and foremost, just like anyone else."
"When our eyes meet..."
"It's fine by me. I never refuse a challenge."
"No matter who the challenger may be."
"Well, <player>? Will you lend us your strength? Our challengers are a team of three, so it would only be fair."
  • Surprise Entrance
Lance!: "Thank you, <player>. I'm glad you have confidence in me."
"Watch–I will win this battle! I stake my title of Lance, master of dragons, on my victory!"
"Well...shall we begin, Cynthia?"
"Time for you and Garchomp to show me the full extent of your power!"
"Clair... You never give up, do you?"
"Fine...but if this is going to be a team battle, let's play by the rules."
"<player>, will you lend me your strength one more time?"
"and Lance, Champion of the Indigo League?"
"Here we come!"
  • At Long Last...
"You can be a little impulsive sometimes, Clair..."
"but that earnest, straightforward attitude of yours is one of your greatest strengths as well. If you can learn to hone that, the sky is the limit!"
"Come and find me whenever you want to battle! I'll accept your challenge anytime, anywhere!"
"About that..."
"Sorry to disappoint you all, but I think I'm going to need a rain check. Cynthia and I will have to battle another time!"
"Right. That's just basic Pokémon training protocol. You have to make sure your Pokémon are all right before jumping into a battle situation with them..."
"even if it means having others tease you or accuse you of running away from a challenge."
"No, it's all right. I'm sorry to have to let you all down today."
"But as long as we're on Pasio, there will be endless opportunities for us to battle!"
"Now you've got something to look forward to! Right, everyone?"
"Everyone here loves Pokémon as much as we do. I knew they would understand."
"Besides..."
"I can think of a much better place for our ultimate battle together."
"The PML finals seem like a perfectly appropriate platform to me..."
"That sounds like a promise. I'll climb through the ranks and make sure it's me standing across from you on that battlefield at the finals!"
"Someday soon, we will have our ultimate showdown!"
Story Event - Family Ties
  • Sibling Advantages
"All right, let's leave it there for today."
"Thanks for the analysis. You've got a good eye."
"You're not twins or cousins—you're siblings. That relationship is something you can use to your advantage."
"You would do well to utilize it moving forward."
Story Event - Season's Greetings
  • Johto-Style Celebration
  • Wearing his New Year's outfit
"There are many Trainers here from regions far from Johto. This must be pretty new for them."
"It's really changed the look of Pasio lately. When I'm out and about, I feel like I'm back home!"
"I also decided to mix things up and sport a new look for the occasion. Check out the Gyarados design on my outfit. Doesn't it look powerful?"
"That's right. It looks like this year's cards have designs inspired by the Johto region."
"If you're interested, why don't we go into town to see the cards?"
  • Pasio's New Card Couriers
"Sure, I'd be happy to. I can't turn down a request from a Pokemon in need of help."
"My Dragonite can fly. He can help us deliver these cards."
"Why don't we say hi to some people while we're out making these deliveries?"
"Silver! It looks like he got some cards from Ethan and Lyra."
"I think I know where he might be. Let's head over to the forest."
  • New Year, Old Rival
"I knew you'd be here. I see Blue is with you, too."
"We're here to deliver some cards from Ethan and Lyra, and we also came to say happy New Year."
"Well then, I suppose it's time for us to go. Sorry for interrupting your practice session."
"They're Ho-Oh feathers. It's a really popular design on clothing and greeting cards in Johto."
"Pretty fancy way to send a greeting!"
"Looks like there are three feathers..."
"I understand! And I accept!"
  • New Year's Resolutions
"For me?"
"Thanks, Lillie. It's been a long time since I've gotten a card from Clair."
"What's this? "I'll be waiting for you at the beach.""
"Hahaha! It sounds like she's challenging me to a battle!"
"I see... In that case, I guess I'll accept her challenge!"
"To the beach!"
"Of course! I, Lance the Dragon Master, accept your challenge!"
"And since I'm wearing this impressive Gyarados outfit, Gyarados and I will take you on!"
"Well, Dragonite is out delivering cards right now."
"Besides, the best Trainers know how to adapt to unpredictable situations, right?"
"I see. You had a game plan and everything. That's why you sent me this card, huh?"
"I remember when we were kids, you once sent me a cute card that had dragon Pokémon on it. Ah, that sure takes me back..."
"So what was you plan if I didn't show up? Were you going to wait here all day?"
"We'll be fine! We're actually ahead of schedule."
  • A Heartfelt Thank-You
"Very well! Let's head on out!"
Story Event - Champion Time
  • Champion Taste
"Leon, I think that capes should be more simple!"
"When you're the Champion and greet new challengers with a swoosh of your cape..."
"I understand that the details of your cape speak volumes about who you are. But for me, the simplicity of my cape helps me stand out more!"
"Now that you mention it, I do see that! It's almost as if it embodies the weight of all of Galar resting on his shoulders! It's unique!"
"But also...I didn't realize you knew so much about capes, Steven."
Story Event - Shining Heart of Dragons
  • The Champions Assemble
"Wow. Listen to that crowd!"

"Hm?"

"What is going on?!"
"It looks like I don't have a choice!"'
  • Off-screen, as "???"
"So you're not sure."
  • On-screen, as Lance
"I noticed you weren't your usual self right before our match."
"It was almost as if you were so worked up, you couldn't tell what was happening with your partner."
  • Off-screen
"Iris, you must remember that you're no ordinary Pokémon Trainer."
"You are a role model to others, and you represent Unova as Champion."
  • On-screen
"I hope you can understand that and conduct yourself accordingly."
"So it's come to this..."
"Oh, it's you!"
  • Hydreigon's Heart
  • Off-screen
"Ah, it's you three."
  • On-screen
"Oh? What makes you think I'm losing hope?"
"You saw that?!"
What are you talking about?: "Don't worry about it."
Wait, was Iris OK?: "You should probably ask Diantha that question..."
"It's fine. The job was probably better left in your hands anyway."
"In any case, it seems I'm not alone in my concern for Iris. You obviously wanted to help her, too."
"This is bad. We need to stop them immediately!"
"Dragonite, Hyper Be–"
"Hold them down then! We can't let them put anyone else in danger!"
  • The Rising Champion
"You underestimate the power of sync pairs."
"Sounds like we're back on schedule with the exhibition matches."
"You have a lot of resolve for someone so young. If a certain someone had met you when he was younger, you would've run circles around him!"
"I see now why he said we should just be patient and watch over you."
"Oh, nothing. Let's continue to aim for higher goals!"
"Together–as Champions!"
"Feels good, doesn't it?"
"It's never too late. You can start with whoever needs you most."
"But you never know what might happen in a Pokémon battle..."
"Especially for someone in the midst of tremendous growth."

  • Measuring Strength
"Agatha!"
"Indeed! Dragon-type Pokémon are still rare, so I thought it'd be a good experience for them."
"Kids! If you like Dragonair, maybe you could become a dragon master!"
"Now then, Agatha."
"For today's training, will you battle with me against Bruno and Lorelei?"
"I want to show them the strength of dragon Pokémon."
  • Indigo Plateau's Fierce Fighters
"What?"
"Sure, let's go!"

Neo Champions - Three Trainers, Three Minds
  • Professor Oak's Request
"Actually, I'd like you all to join as challengers, not judges!"
  • The Strongest Challengers
"You three are already an example for a lot of sync pairs."
"But for this Neo Champion Stadium, participants will be judged on their "exemplary leadership," at Professor Oak's request."
"I'd like you all to find new potential within yourselves by coaching new Trainers."
"After all, Neo Champions aren't chosen solely for their strength!"
"Here are the regulations for this round."
  • Off-screen
"Each participant will be teamed up with two beginner Trainers."
"You'll guide them in battle as team leaders—and show us your ability to help them grow!"
  • A Fun Battle!
  • Off-screen
"Yes. To truly understand Pokémon, it's important to have love, not just knowledge."
  • On-screen
"Now, it's time to announce the Neo Champions for this round!"
"The first is Leaf, who taught how important it is to not only have knowledge of Pokémon but love them, too!"
"And that deep knowledge was on full display during battle!"
"But most importantly, to become a first-class Trainer, you have to love Pokémon."
"Blue's team scored well on both tests—written and practical."
"Seeing that, the other judges all praised your coaching."
"Such leadership is worthy of a Neo Champion title!"
"And the second is Blue!"
"And the last is Red!"
"It's hard to train a person to enjoy battling no matter the outcome!"
"But you did so impressively! Your teammates' eyes were strong, sturdy, and unafraid to lose!"
"The same eyes you had the day you beat me on the Indigo Plateau!"

Sync Pair Story - A Day with Lance
  • Off-screen, as "???"
"Hey there, <player>!"
  • After appearing, as Lance
"Fancy running into you in this hustle and bustle!"
"With so many people around, Dragonite might just want to take to the skies."
You're always together, aren't you.: "Yeah, he's my trustworthy partner."
He's cute.: "Yeah, he has an endearing face, doesn't he? But don't let that baby face fool you! He's really strong when it counts!"
"He's got a heart of gold, though. Whenever he sees people or Pokémon in need, he helps them without a second thought."
"But on the other hand, he doesn't pull any punches against wrongdoers!"
"See, I think it's important that Pokémon and people are able to spend their days in peace no matter the time or place."
"And if there's anybody who threatens that peace, I intend to be right there to protect it along with Dragonite!"
"Hm?!"
"Speak of the devil... <player>, could I ask you for your help?"
"I'll be flying ahead!"
"Dragonite, Hyper Beam!"
"You thought you could get away with stealing in front of me?!"
"No need for thanks. I'm just glad that you're all right. Here's your Poké Ball back."
"Well, I couldn't abandon somebody in need."
"I'm sure Dragonite felt the same way."
"Also, it might be a little meddlesome of us, but wanting to help future Trainers is in our nature."
"I know from that battle earlier that you have quite a lot of potential."
"I look forward to battling alongside you more in the future!"
Sync Pair Story - A Day with Red
"I thought I heard some loud noises around here. So you all were battling, huh?"
"That was a great match. I can tell you've both been training your Pokémon quite a bit."
"Especially that Snorlax of yours, Red."
"The way it was moving earlier shows you've been raising it well. It's looking great!"
"I see. When you say your first adventure..."
"Do you mean your travels through the Kanto region?"
"Red had to wake him up?"
"What a fascinating story. I wish I'd been there to see it."
"I imagine it was a great battle."
"Oh? Did you also give it a try?"
"I see. So that loss just made you fonder of that Snorlax, huh?"
"I'm sure you're ready to go another round, aren't you?"
