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."
"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 toward, all 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."
  • If player tries to leave their side

"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!"

  • 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!"

"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!"
