Wyndon Stadium (intro)
"You know I don't lose battles, Raihan!"
"Charizard! Dynamax!"
"Hello, hello, Wedgehurst! Your Champion, Leon, is back! I promise I'll keep doing my best to deliver the greatest battles for you all to watch!"
"Well, thank you for that! I hope you'll all carry on training up your Pokémon and never shy from battle. Then come challenge me for the Champion title!"
"Too true that Charizard is blazingly strong. But other Pokémon can be strong as well! That's why I want the strongest of challengers to fill the Gym Challenge and come battle me!"
"My wish is for Galar's Trainers to work together to become the strongest in all the world!"
"So, my number-one fan in all the world has come out of his way to pick me up!"
"Look at you, Hop! I reckon you've grown...exactly an inch and a quarter since the last time I saw you!"
"And these bright eyes over here... I've got it! You must be <player>—am I right? I've heard loads about you from my little brother."
"I'm the Galar region's greatest-ever Pokémon Champion—and a massive Charizard fan, too. People call me the unbeatable Leon!"
"That Hop... Always wanting to be the best, isn't he? With a proper rival of his own, I bet he'd push himself to become something truly special..."
"Well, everyone! I bid you farewell for today! But don't you fret... I'll always be around to make sure everyone in Galar can have a champion time!"
  • Giving the player and Hop their starter Pokémon
"Right then! The greatest gift from the greatest Champion... It's showtime, everyone!"
"Take a good look, you two!"
"The Grass-type Pokémon... Grookey!"
"The Fire-type Pokémon... Scorbunny!"
"And the Water-type Pokémon... Sobble!"
"All right! Line up, everyone!"
"Which will you choose?"
If talked to again : "<player>! My dream is to help make the Trainers of the Galar region as strong as they can be. Choose a partner for yourself and become one of those strong Trainers, won't you?"
Grookey: "The Grass-type Pokémon Grookey, eh? It's soothing—like a nice, long walk in the woods."
"The Grass-type Pokémon Grookey, is it?"
Scorbunny: "Scorbunny is Fire type. It's filled to bursting with a fiery passion!"
"You're set on the Fire-type Pokémon Scorbunny?"
Sobble: "That's the Water-type Sobble. It adapts to anything, as surely as water flows."
"Going with the Water-type Pokémon Sobble?"
No: "It's natural to want to consider your options! Though going with your instincts is fine, as well! You choose your dear partner however you like!"
"I bet you will be, Hop. That's why I brought along these Pokémon for you and <player>. So the two of you can battle and train and grow stronger together...to try to reach me!"
"And you'll come with me! Charizard will show you the ropes. He's strict—but real strong and real kind, too!"
  • The following day
"You spent the whole night with that new partner of yours, right, Hop? You two getting on all right? Understanding one another? Maybe even built up a bit of love?"
"Then listen up, new Trainers! Believe in yourself and your Pokémon! If you trust in one another and carry on battling side by side long enough, then someday..."
"you might even become worthy rivals for me, the unbeatable Champion!"
"Oh, and you think you're worthy of calling yourself such a proper Trainer already, Hop? Guess I'll be the judge of that! Let's see how you handle yourself in a battle against your friend if he's/she's up for it."
"What do you say? Willing and ready to take Hop on in the first-ever Pokémon battle of your life?"
Yes : "Believe in your partner Pokémon! And care for them, too, with all your heart. Do those two things, and I'm certain you'll learn to choose the moves that suit your Pokémon. And more importantly...to have a champion time battling with them!"
No : "Than how about I give you a spot of advice. You don't want to go getting so caught up in things that you forget everything you've accomplished till now. Take a moment to jot down what you've done, in order to save a record of your progress!"
"Looks like everyone's on board, Pokémon and Trainers alike? Then let's do this!"
  • After defeating Hop
"You and your Pokémon all fought hard. Made me almost want to let out Charizard and join in on all the fun! Good effort out there, <Pokémon>! Why don't I get you all sorted?"
"And, <player>, you've got real promise! In fact, I've got a favor to ask you... Be a real rival to Hop, would you? Push him, and make the both of you stronger!"
"You? Join the Gym Challenge? You think you're ready for the single greatest competition in the Galar region? Not putting the cart before the Rapidash there, Little Brother?"
"If that's really what you want to do, you two have a whole lot you need to learn about Pokémon."
"Especially your friend <player>. Before you think about getting Gym Badges, best to think about getting a Pokédex."
"A Trainer's Pokédex helps them learn lots of things about all the Pokémon out there, including their strengths. But it's more than just a collection of data, you know. It's a record of a Trainer's love and passion for Pokémon training!"
"That's the kind of enthusiasm a Trainer needs! I'll let the professor know to expect you."
Slumbering Weald
"Hop! <player>!"
"Oh, that's nice to hear from the little brother who had me worried sick! I'd been waiting ages for your two, and you never showed! Of course I came looking for the both of you!"
"The little chap's just fine. Though all of you had fainted by the time I found you here. You know this place is out of bounds... But it took courage to come in here all the same. And I can understand well enough why you did it. You did good, Hop!"
"Attacked by a mad Pokémon? What are you talking about, Hop?"
"Your moves passed right through it? So, the fearsome Pokémon they say live in the Slumbering Weald... Are they actually illusions or something? Get strong enough and maybe the two of you could be the ones to reveal the truth someday. For now, let's simply get out of this place. You'll be all right now that I'm here with you!"
"Well done! You reached the goal and managed to find the Pokémon Research Lab! You did a far sight better than I did my first time. I'm hopeless with directions. See how your world has already grown, all thanks to having Pokémon with you? I know I'm sure glad I've got Charizard with me...to keep me from getting lost all the time. Now, in we go!"
  • Pokémon Lab
"I've got to give it to Professor Magnolia. Everything in here looks fascinating..."
"Good to see you, too, Yamper! Yamper here is a real champ when it comes to helping you find your way around. He came to my rescue plenty of times back in the day, when I got lost on the road. Oh yeah, and that's his Trainer, Sonia. What can I say about Sonia? Well, I like the way she cooks. She makes food you can gobble down in a flash."
"This is <player>. He's/She's a new Pokémon Trainer. Set him/her on the right path, would you?"
Route 2
"And I'm here to teach you how! You'll need to catch Pokémon if you've got any hope of filling in that Pokédex."
  • Noticing the player has already caught a Pokémon
"Only...look at you, little <player>! You've already caught some on your own! You mum gave you those Poké Balls, did she?
  • If the player has not caught a Pokémon
"Every Pokémon has got a type or two, which can make it good against some opponents but poor against others. That's the reason you'll want to catch different Pokémon—to cover one another's weaknesses. Now, let's all have a champion time as I show you how it's done."
  • During the catching tutorial
"This is the way a real Champion catches Pokémon!"
  • After the catching tutorial/noticing the player has already caught a Pokémon
"I'll give you some more Poké Balls. In return, I'll only ask that you catch plenty of Pokémon! The Pokémon around here seem easy to catch. Almost like they're itching to join some Trainer's team, wouldn't you say?"
"And of course, they get Exp. Points from battle, so take on the other Trainers you meet along the path to help your Pokémon thrive. Your team will keep on changing and growing as you get stronger together, no doubt... But even I don't know exactly how yet! Show your Champion something good, all right?"
"So have you unraveled all the secrets of the Dynamax phenomenon yet?"
"You must already know about Dynamaxing, right, <player>? Professor Magnolia's been doing research into the Dynamax phenomenon for years and years. And it takes a proper understanding of the thing if you plan to use Dynamaxing to the fullest!"
"Hop and <player> only just started out as Pokémon Trainers... There's still loads they don't know yet!"
"Well yeah...you're not wrong. That goal's precisely the reason I gave them both Pokémon, in fact. Right then. In that case...how about this? Let's see if the two of you can show me such a brilliant battle that I'm left with no choice but to endorse you. And don't worry. I'll make sure both your teams are in good shape before the battle starts."
"You remember what I asked, don't you? I think you've got potential, and that's why I want you to be a real rival to Hop. And that's direct from your Champion Leon!"
  • Before battling Hop
"Listen, you two. The reason I'm unbeatable is because I learn from every battle I see or take part in. That's how I've gotten to where I am today. So show me something good in this battle!"
  • After battling Hop
"<player>! Hop! Well, after seeing a match like that one... I suppose I've little choice but to give you both an endorsement as Champion!"
"You may both be young still, and plenty rough around the edges, but it was a proper battle. Charizard and I were both feeling the excitement in every last cell in our bodies! Hop, you've always tended to get caught up in things like how you throw your Poké Ball out... Things that have nothing to do with real strength. Honestly, I'd been worried about you still obsessing over that sort of nonsense, but it seems you really have grown a bit, Little Brother! And I'd like to see some more thrilling Pokémon battles out of you, too, <player>."
"Trust you to pull something like this! They say Wishing Stars fall down for those who have a true wish in their heart, you know."
"I'd surely never make it to the stadium without you to show me the way, partner. Even with a huge old thing like this bang in the middle of the city, I still get lost."
"<player>! All right? One look tells me that you've become a Trainer worthy of that endorsement I gave you! And...yes, I reckon you might even be ready to use this... Here, try giving this to your partner to hold!"
"You can take that lift up to the city's upper level, if you're headed for the stadium next."
  • If talked to again
"I guess you might want to have a look around the city first. Only don't get lost like I do! When you're ready to visit the stadium, take the lift to get up there!"
Motostoke Stadium
"You've made it at last, Hop. And you, too, <player>!"
"The chairman certainly seems to be in high spirits! Now, listen closely, you two. You've both only just started on your path as Trainers. If you want to win, you need to do more than just train your Pokémon. You need to train yourselves, too."
"<player>! Seems you're doing well collecting Gym Badges."
"But Hop... Did something happen with him? He was acting really odd when I ran into him. He took one look at me and immediately was like, "I'm so sorry, Lee!" It might be the first time I've heard him apologize for anything, and I've no idea what it was for!"
"Maybe he's feeling down because he's had some hard losses in battle?"
He lost to that Challenger Bede :"When you lose, you feel down in the dumps. But then there's nowhere left to go but back up! You've got to think on why it was you lost, though. You know, that little brother of mine...I think he might yet become a surprisingly great Trainer!"
I think so :"At least I've got you to keep an eye on him. You will look out for Hop, won't you? As his rival."
"Blast, and look at the time! Nearly forgot my meeting with the chairman. That Oleana really lets me hear it when I'm late! Now if only I could remember which way to go..."
"Anyway, I'd say that you should go and say hello to Raihan while you're here, <player>. He's the greatest rival I've got and the final hurdle you'll have to face in the Gym Challenge. He should still be around the vault, if you hurry. It's down that way—on the way to Route 6."
  • After defeating Opal
"Hey, Sonia! And <player>, too! You felt that shaking, right? Seems Chairman Rose is testing something again."
"Is that so? I can make sure the chairman knows."
Route 9
"<player>! Thanks for coming, but I've got a handle on this! Whatever's making that noise, I'll see to it!"
"I already told you, didn't I? Keep your eye on the goal! And for you, that's winning the Gym Challenge! The only Gym Badge left is the one you'll get from the Dragon Gym's Leader, Raihan. Right? Raihan is the only Trainer out there I consider a real rival. He's that good, you know!"
"And there I go again! Sorry, but I suppose this is no time for me to be stopping for a chat. There's a bit of trouble here with my name on it. But don't you worry about a thing! The unbeatable champion is here to look after things and keep you all safe!"
"That came from the tunnel, wouldn't you say? Seems I'm about to have a champion time!"
"Well, I am the unbeatable Champion, after all! But what all is going on here?"
"Did the chairman know anything?"
There must be!/Yeah, we'll help! :"Thanks! I appreciate the thought. But all I could ever ask of you would be that you join me in the greatest final match ever. I'll do my part to make that happen by keeping everybody's future safe. So you just keep on doing your part by winning your way through the Gym Challenge!"
"Looks like we all know what we need to do. So, you two—clear the Gym Challenge so we can meet again at the Champion Cup!"
Wyndon Stadium
"That was incredible. Brilliant. Honestly...there were even tears rolling down my face before I knew it. To think that the two of you set out together from the same town, built up the greatest teams, and arrived here at this point to throw everything you had at one another... That burning desire to win... Those moves filled with undefeatable passion! It was battling at its very purest, in every possible way! Even though there were some Trainers who weren't sure whether you were fit to be endorsed for the Gym Challenge at first..."
"Well then, all the more reason! My team members and I will give everything that we've got in us to defeat our challenger. And the challenger standing before us might well end up being you, <player>. In fact, that's precisely what I'm hoping for!"
"Best to refill your energy stores first! Why don't we go get some dinner together?"
Rose Tower
"I think I understand well enough. What I don't understand is why we ought to cancel tomorrow's tournament in order to solve a problem that's a thousand years away from affecting any of us! What difference is one day going to make? My duty as Champion isn't this...this madness. It's to carry out that Championship Match! That's what Galar wants—and what I want! It's what we've all been looking forward to for so long!"
"In a thousand years! Fine. Look. I think I understand your concerns, Chairman. And I give my word I'll help you with your plans...just as soon as tomorrow's match is over."
"Never mind any of this, Hop, <player>. Let's head back to the hotel, and we'll all grab dinner together, yeah? It's on me, so you can order whatever you fancy."
"If you'll excuse us, Chairman Rose... And I do hope you'll watch tomorrow's match. It's sure to be one for the history books."
Wyndon Stadium
  • Champion Cup Finals intro
"It probably goes without saying, but... hello, Galar! I'm your Champion, Leon!"
"The chairman is tied up with some business, so I hope no one minds me stepping in on his behalf..."
"in order to lead you all to greater heights as Pokémon Trainers of the Galar region!"
"The time has come for you to battle it out until only the greatest challenger remains!"
"So, on behalf of the chairman, allow me to say... let the Finals matches begin!"
  • After clearing the Finals
"The tense, still air on the pitch... And the exact opposite from the audience, cheering and yelling... They're both fantastic, wouldn't you say?"
"But remember, the audience is also a bit cruel... They want nothing more than to see one of us lose, after all! It can fill you with fear knowing that, but I absolutely love pushing past the fear. I love giving it everything I've got as a Trainer and seeing my team give everything they've got to seize another victory! It's the greatest feeling in the world, and I can't get enough of it!"
"I can feel my partners itching with anticipation inside their Poké Balls... We're going to have a real champion time!"
"I'm the Galar region's Champion, Leon! Me and Charizard, and all the rest of our team, will use all our knowledge and experience to crush you completely!"
  • After Rose's interruption
"I don't know! But everything he was saying yesterday... Did he really pull this crazy stunt to solve some problem a thousand years in the future?! I've got to go see what's going on... I'm the Champion! I have to go!"
"I should've realized what the chairman intended to do before it came to this... I'll take responsibility now for fixing this mess! This is the real Champion time!"
Tower Summit
"You came to help me in spite of the danger? Thanks, Hop. And you, <player>. You two really have grown tremendously! But no need for you kids to worry. It seems like some power of Eternatus's was keeping my team from Dynamaxing, but...we've had a champion time all the same!"
"Charizard and the rest of my champion team members have really worn Eternatus down."
"Now if I can simply catch it in a Poké Ball, we should be able to get this madness under control. Then everything will be back to normal. So watch this! It's going to be a real champion catch!"
Wyndon Stadium
  • Before battle
"My matches are always sold out, but this... I've never seen a crowd this wild!"
"Everyone knows what you did for us this week, <player>... They know you're the one who caught Eternatus and saved the future of the Galar region."
"A real hero, who battled alongside the Legendary Pokémon, Zacian and Zamazenta... I couldn't have dreamed of a better challenger to help increase my winning streak!"
  • If the player does not have Eternatus in their party
"Now that I've seen just what kind of strength you possess as the greatest of challengers...crushing you into the dirt will show everyone just how strong their Champion truly is!"
  • If the player has Eternatus in their party
"Oh... And you've even added Eternatus to your party. The greatest challenger along with the most powerful Pokémon—is that it? Now you're really getting me excited!"
"Come on, <player>! Let's make this a final match that'll go down in Galar's history! No! A match that'll change Galar forever!"
"We're gonna have an absolutely champion time!"
  • After sending out first Pokémon
"It's one of the duties of the Champion to get the crowd fired up!"
  • Upon first receiving a super effective hit
"A supereffective hit... I'd expect nothing less from your team!"
  • Upon first landing a super effective hit
"Aiming for supereffective hits is a surefire way to claim victory!"
"A critical hit... Hah! Pretty good, Challenger!"
  • Upon first landing a critical hit
"Don't get caught up on a critical hit. Focus on what you're going to do next!"
  • Before sending out final Pokémon
"I'm not finished having a champion time here! And I won't let anyone finish it for me!"
"I'll show you what Charizard can really do! It's Gigantamax time!"
"It's a champion time to turn up the heat! Charizard, time for our G-Max Wildfire!"
  • Upon being defeated
"My time as Champion is over... But what a champion time it's been! Thank you for the greatest battle I've ever had!"
  • After being defeated
"Congratulations, <player>!"
"You've beat even the unbeatable Champion— making you the new Champion of the region!"
"You've become a first-rate Trainer, all right."
"I offer you my heartfelt congratulations!"
"And now that you've grown so strong, perhaps it's time I started looking ahead myself."
"It's time we adults started working on improving the here and now, for the sake of all that's to come!"
"And you, <player>! What you ought to do now is..."
"believe in yourself and your partner Pokémon, and keep on blasting ahead!"
"In order to create that bright future we all hope to see!"
"People of Galar!"
"Here you have it! A new legend born right before your eyes!"
"Your Champion, <player>!"
"Bet you can't wait to see what kind of future a kid with this kind of strength might bring about!"
"I sure can't! Let's watch and see what he/she can do!"
Slumbering Weald
"And I'm here to keep an eye on them. They did technically descend from the original kings of Galar, after all."
"Seems you lot have been up to all sorts of things while I was stuck in Rose Tower trying to take care of the mess the chairman left behind."
"Just so you know, I saw your Pokémon battle against Champion <player>."
"You sure have gotten strong! You were so good, I nearly sent out my Charizard without thinking, wanting to join in on the fun!"
"It seems like you've found your own path to walk in life, Hop."
"As your older brother… No, as your rival, you have my full support!"
Battle Tower
Beginner Tier
  • Before battle
"<player>! I've been waiting for you. Always knew you'd be able to win your way here. Now, how about you take on Challenger Leon with everything that you've got?"
  • Upon being defeated
"Battling against a Champion like you... It really is the best... And since you managed to defeat me, you'll be moving up the ranks here at the Battle Tower."
  • After being defeated
"I knew you had it in you, <player>! I was sure you and your Pokémon would blast right through the first stage of the Battle Tower! But don't go thinking you've seen all the Battle Tower has to offer. We're only getting started!"
Poké Ball Tier
  • Before battle
"Well done, <player>! Just as I knew you'd do! I never expected the Poké Ball Tier would hold you long... Now it's time you and I had some fun!"
  • Upon being defeated
"I'm glad we've got such a strong Champion here in Galar, but even more than that... I'm gutted to have lost! Thanks for always giving me the chance to have the greatest battles. But I don't plan on losing the next one!"
  • After being defeated
"Your Pokémon certainly look delighted to battle alongside you, <player>! But of course they do! They're lucky enough to battle with a Trainer who knows just how to draw out the best of them! That's it. I'm gonna be sure to draw out even more of my own team members from now on, too!"
Great Ball Tier
  • Before battle
"The Battle Tower is the place to go if you want to see how Trainers dedicated to growing stronger live and do battle. Looks as though your own strength is about as amazing as ever, <player>. But I'll not just take your word for it!"
  • Upon being defeated
"You and your team are utterly brilliant. You've gone beyond me now... So it's time we move you up a rank! But I don't plan on sitting on my bum. The next time we meet in the Battle Tower, I'll make you regret winning your way to facing me!"
  • After being defeated
"The strong desire to win! That's the trigger that makes you accumulate new skills and transform experience into strength! And you and your team—you've got a real great desire to win, don't you! Love it! But you still haven't seen the real challenge the Battle Tower is waiting to throw at you!"
Ultra Ball Tier
  • Before battle
"My dream has always been to make the people of the Galar region stronger. And this Battle Tower is making that dream come true! So come on, <player>! Think you and I can get even stronger, too? A fierce battle is the only way to do it!"
  • Upon being defeated
"You never stop surprising me, you know that? I'm really astounded at how far you've come! Right then! Let's move you up a rank! There are no limits when it comes to Pokémon! Keep on having a champion time!"
  • After being defeated
"Now, that's an absolutely champion time! The stronger you get, the more the Trainers here at the Battle Tower burn with the desire to be the one to beat you and break your streak! Their Pokémon are all sharpening their teeth and claws in anticipation! And I'll be putting together my greatest ever team, too. Naturally! So, do your best to reach me once again!"
Master Ball Tier
  • Before battle
"Looking back at when I first met you in Wedgehurst, the path to this place feels... well, short in one way, but so long in others. Allow me to be the one who faces you in the greatest-ever match here at the Battle Tower!"
  • Upon being defeated
"When I've got you, and I've got Hop, and I've got Charizard beside me... I feel there's no limit to how strong I can become! It's just like I told you before... There's truly no limit when it comes to Pokémon! We're all going to have a champion time!"
  • After being defeated
"The greatest battle of the Battle Tower is over... But at least since it was between you and me... No, since it was between your team and mine, we managed to make it one brilliant match! Champion! I hope this isn't the last time I get to meet you in battle! Keep challenging me! So that I can keep reaching ever greater heights!"
All tiers
  • If the player is defeated
"Come on—remember our final match! Is this really the best you can do?!"
Galarian Star Tournament
Inviting the player
"<player>! At last!"
"...Hello, hello? You there? This is <player>'s Rotom Phone, right?"
Yes:"Brilliant! I asked Hop for your number. I'm glad he didn't pull anything funny, like giving me the wrong one..."
No:"Ack! Sorry about that! Looks like I've got the wrong number... Though your voice does sound awfully familiar, I've got to say... Hang on—-<player>! It really is you, isn't it?! You're as bad as Hop, you rascal!"
"Oh, sorry. Guess I should've said who was calling you, eh? It's me, Leon! Sorry if I took you aback! But rest assured, there can only be a pretty good reason for me to call you out of the blue like this. The former Champion of Galar has a favor to ask of the current Champion... And that's you, <player>!"
"Come on over to Wyndon Stadium, and I'll tell you all the details! I'll head that way myself now—and I swear I won't take any detours or get lost!"
Wyndon Stadium
"<player>! You made it! Come on! Follow me to the Battle Court! We can talk there. You're ready, right?"
"All right! Then here we go! This is what we've all been waiting for!"
  • Introducing the tournament
"All right, everyone! Sorry to have kept you waiting! First things first—I want to say a quick thank-you to all of you for coming running when I called! I really wanted to explain this in person, because I wanted to be sure I could get across to you all how great this idea is!"
"Hah! Don't you start on me, Raihan! I'm really trying here! See, I've spent my whole life battling with myself to become the greatest Trainer... And then I saw how <player> grew so strong by competing against my little brother, Hop... and how much it made Hop grow, too. It really proved to me how much further you can go when you're battling against a proper rival! And now that I've taken over running the League from Chairman Rose... I'm thinking I want to bring even more thrilling battles to our wonderful Galar region! So for both these reasons, I've called you all here today to tell you that... I'm declaring the Galarian Star Tournament open!"
"The Galarian Star Tournament will be an elimination tournament in Multi Battle format! I want all of you here to pair up with the stronger partner you can think of... then pool your power and work together to try to win your way through the tourney!"
  • Before first battle
"<player>! Hop! I knew you two'd make it through!"
"Haha! Well then, here we are... facing off in the final round! This match'll settle who's the strongest team... so let's give it all the effort it deserves!"
  • Paired with Raihan
"All right, Raihan! Use those weather tricks and make it rain cheers in this stadium!"
  • Before sending out final Pokémon
"You lot are so strong, I've got to doff my cap... But this isn't over yet!"
  • Upon Gigantamaxing Charizard
"Get ready—here comes the climax! It's Gigantamax time!"
  • Upon using G-Max Wildfire
"Let's see how hot your passion burns! Go, Charizard! G-Max Wildfire!"
  • Upon being defeated
"That was some brilliant teamwork! Thanks a lot for the heart-pounding match!"
  • Concluding the first tournament
"All the matches were brilliant!"
"You hear that? The voices of Galar... The excitement we brought all these people... They can't help but be moved by that fantastic performance you two just put on! Their hearts are crying out for more! And this glorious tournament that's brought so much fire to the people of Galar... Well, its time is up. We have our clear winners. Though it's an awful shame to end it, after all the fun it's been... Which is why..."
"I'm pleased to announce the Galarian Star Tournament will continue from this day on! You can have as many tournaments in this Multi Battle format as you can stomach! If you want, you can stick with the same partner next time—or try something different! We'll get all the strongest Trainers in the Galar region into this wild mix... And we'll run wild next time! And the next! And every time after that!"
"As long as Trainers and Pokémon keep aiming for the top together! As long as our fans want to watch our battles, their hands sweaty with nerves and excitement! We'll go on for a thousand years! We'll carry on forever! So, everyone! Until we next meet! Now let's have the Maximizers play us off!"
Further tournaments
  • Facing Hop
"Fancy meeting you on a big stage like this, Hop! This should be a fun match!"
  • Facing Raihan
"It doesn't matter what kind of match it is, Raihan. I won't lose! Come on—give me all you've got!"
  • Facing Mustard with the player
"As if there's any other way I battle! Come on, <player>! It's super Champion time!"
  • Paired with Peony
"I'm looking forward to fighting alongside the Steel Peony himself!"
  • Paired with Mustard
"Master Mustard! It's an honor to battle at your side!"
  • Paired with Hop

"And look at you now!"
  • Meteor Mystery
"OK, I think I understand what's going on."
"First, we should probably figure out why Eternatus is here on Pasio."
"I'm going to meet up with Professor Bellis! Maybe she knows what's going on."
"I guess you're right! Great thinking, Hop!"
"Then, let's all go there together! It's a race to the professor's lab!"

"Whoa! Oh no!"
"Eternatus... There you are."
"Heh, of course! I am the Champion, after all!"
"Sure! But first, we've got to take care of Eternatus!"
  • Bonds of Eternity
"That's a bit odd..."
"Its attacks are strong but not very accurate."
"Just like Hop and the others said, it seems to be in pain..."
"Don't worry. I think I know where it's headed."
"Hop? Is everything OK with your group?"
"I see. Then let's go together! We're one step away from Eternatus!"
"Got it. Thanks!"
"Then our group will deal with Eternatus! We'll definitely capture it!"
"I'll show you the strength of Galar's greatest Champion!"
"There you are."
"I know."
"I trust you too, Hop. I'm proud to be your brother."
"Oh, I think I get it now!"
"Since it has to take in sync stone energy, that means..."
"it's got to use sync moves!"
"OK then! Eternatus!"
"To unleash a sync move, you need to team up with a Trainer as a sync pair!"
"Why don't you and I become partners, then?"
"Then we have no other choice! I'll prove to you that you can trust me!"
"Let's battle, Eternatus! I'll show you the strength of the Champion of Galar!"
  • Strongest Siblings
"It's up to us, Hop."
"Me too. But y'know what? We were always together, even when we were apart."
"We're brothers, after all!"
"Don't worry too much about keeping up with me, Hop. Just give it all you've got!"
"Our strength knows no bounds! We'll show you just how strong two brothers with the drive to be the best can be!"
"Leave it to me."
"It's about time we finished this."
"This battle was a lot of fun, Eternatus. But now it's time for the finale!"
"Feel the power of our sync stone!"
"How are you doing? Feeling a bit better, are you?"
"I think you'll be all right."
"Don't worry. I'll take good care of you!"
  • Wearing his sygna suit
"So, what do you think? Looks good, right?"
"Exactly! I feel even closer to Eternatus when I wear this sygna suit!"
"We still need to build a stronger bond to become an ideal sync pair!"
"Hello hello, people of Pasio! Thank you for attending our match today!"
"You're in for a treat! We're holding an exhibition match—Eternatus versus Zacian and Zamazenta!"
"As a Champion, I have to look cool! So I'm absolutely going for the win today!"
"Wouldn't dream of it! Not when I'm battling you!"
"You're plenty strong. But as Champion, I have a duty to win, no matter how strong you are."
"Here we go! We'll show this crowd the hottest battle they've ever seen!"
"Let's have a champion time!"
Champion Stadium - Victory Road
  • Critical Hits: Part 1
  • Before battle
"Hey, <player>! I was waiting for you lot to show up!"
"Actually, I was going to ask Blue and his team for a battle..."
"But I heard all about what you're doing, and I decided to help you out instead!"
"After all, my dream is for everyone to get stronger together!"
"First, let's have ourselves a battle!"
"I'll figure out what I can teach you from how you battle!"
  • During battle
"That's all for now! You won't be beating me with attacks like that!"
  • Critical Hits: Part 2
"I see! I know exactly what I can teach you, then!"
"I'll explain how to use critical hits!"
"When you land a critical hit, it increases the amount of damage you deal to your opponent."
"But that's not all! Even if your opponent tries to raise their Defense or Sp. Def, it won't affect your critical-hit damage!"
"Critical hits also ignore other field effects that reduce physical or special damage!"
"In order words, you can use a critical hit to deal significant damage despite almost anything your opponent does to strengthen their defenses!"
"Essentially, what you can do is use a Trainer move that raises your critical-hit rate!"
"You can only raise your critical-hit rate by up to three ranks, but that should be plenty!"
"If you're able to do that, most of your attacks will be critical hits!"
"Why don't you take this? It's a Trainer move that can raise your critical-hit rate!"
  • After giving the player Dire Hit +
"In this next battle, try focusing on landing critical hits!"
  • Critical Hits: Part 3
"Yes, those were some excellent attacks!"
"Use this in Hard mode in the Champion Stadium, and your attacks will really pack a punch!"
"Er...but don't forget–your opponents can also use critical hits against you, too!"
"If your opponent tries to land critical hits on you, you can try recovering HP before they come at you with a big attack!"
  • You Did It!
"Yeah! Champions show their strength by drawing out the strength of their greatest challengers, then crushing them to the dirt!"
"Got it, <player>? We're gonna have an absolutely champion time in Hard mode!"
Story Event - Champion Time

"Great! I love that determined look on your face!"
"I'm looking forward to seeing you grow as a Trainer!"
"And I guess that means it's my turn now! I'm gonna rock this crowd!"
"I can't lose, either! As the Champion of Galar, I have the duty of getting the crowd fired up!"
"It's the start of an epic battle! Let's enjoy our champion time!"
  • A Champion Time for All
"Looks like you won't be making this easy for me... But we're still just getting warmed up!"
"With our sync move, we're sure to be the victors!"
"Charizard! Let's show them the true strength of our bond! "
"That was an excellent match! Everyone's going wild over it!"
"Red... So you two are friends!"
"Rivals, huh? That's true—Trainers don't just get stronger on their own."
"You and I have both got rivals who make us stronger!"
"Yeah, he's a Gym Leader in Galar..."
"It's all thanks to him that I became known as the unbeatable Leon!"
"Hear the passion in the voices of all the people cheering for you? You can feel good about how you did today!"
"Thank you! You know, my dream is to get stronger together with everybody!"
"So let's keep on raising the bar!"
  • Lost Champion
"<player>! Great to see you!"
"I'm a bit lost again, to tell you the truth. Could you point me to the Pokémon Center?"
Head south!/It's that way!: "All right! This looks like a great shortcut!"
"Now I've gone and got separated from my Charizard..."
"Would you help me find him, <player>? That'd be a big help!"
  • If spoken to
"I can't believe my own Charizard would get lost..."
  • After speaking to the Youngster
"I also need to find my Charizard. Why don't we search for them together?"
"Charizard! So you found that lost Charmander and brought it back safely!"
"Sure! Let's have a Pokémon battle then!"
"Charizard and I will be waiting for your challenge!"
  • Champion Taste
"Really? I like what's going on with mine, though."
"I see! I never thought of it that way. I view my cape as a reminder of all the people who are cheering for me."
"Thanks, Steven!"
"I'm not sure I understand exactly what you mean, but...I think I kind of get it! You two both have your own kind of champion time!"
  • Taught by the Best
"You two really are strong!"
"I bet it's because of the experience you've built up battling so many Trainers!"
"Oh, absolutely!"
"My teacher had a strong passion that rivals yours!"
"I'm sure he'd love to battle you, too!"
"What a sight it would be to see you battling my teacher! I'd love that!"
"And if possible, I'd also like in on the fun!"
"I look forward to that!"

"This is just the beginning!"
"I'm sure the other sync pairs got excited after seeing us show off our strength."
"They'll be training even more to come after us! I imagine we'll be getting some calls for rematches in the near future!"
"It's so exciting! My wish is for Trainers to work together to become as strong as they can be!"

  • Wearing his sygna suit

"They say that Eternatus arrived to the planet inside a meteorite that fell in ancient times!"

"I never refuse a challenge!"
"A legendary face-off between two Legendary Pokémon... This ought to be good!"
"Sounds like Eternatus is keen as well!"

  • A Lonely Winter
"Delivering gifts to everyone on this large island is an important job!"
"I'll be sure to deliver everything safely and bring a smile to everyone's faces!"
"I hope you're all looking forward to it!"
"Hm? What do you mean?"
"And we didn't have enough time to tell you in person, either..."
"What's wrong, Calyrex? Did you want to get started on delivering presents already?"
  • Champion Responsibility
"Come on, Calyrex! No time to rest–let's deliver the next present!"
"You all right there, mate?"
"I guess we are overdue for a break with how fast we were going."
"Why don't we head back to where everyone else is?"
"I thought I heard someone calling out for me!"
"It's my job as Champion to make an appearance whenever I'm called!"
"Hm? What's wrong, Calyrex? Excited about something?"
"A-are you OK, Sawyer?"
"Calyrex? Did you do this?"
"Is this voice...Calyrex?"
"What do you mean?"
"... ... ..."
"Hm... I see your point."
"Thanks, Calyrex! You really have been looking out for us all this time, haven't you."
"It was never my intention to make anyone sad or lonely."
"But that said, I am a Champion."
"No matter what happens, that'll never change."

"So it ended up becoming a winter soiree gift instead, but..."
"You really always helped me out, so I wanted to make sure I could give this to you in person!"

"Can you hear that? The excitement is nearly through the roof."
"All of you! Hit me with all you've got!"
  • How to Beat a Champion
"They made it into a one-on-one!"
"Are you trying to take us down individually? Not good enough!"
"Tch... Gloria!"
"You got me! I didn't expect to be cornered like this!"
"But...I won't give up, no matter what!"
"It's not over yet! I'm gonna show you a champion time!"
"Congratulations, Hop, Marnie, Bede!"
"After deliberation, the other judges and I have chosen you all as Neo Champions."
"You did your research on us and came up with an excellent strategy, and that showed us your passion for victory!"
"Furthermore, your teamwork utilized each of your three sync pairs' strengths..."
"That proved your determination to get stronger together!"
"As frustrating as it is, you completely crushed us!"
Sync Pair Story - A Day with Leon
"Charizard! Don't let up!"
"Hmm, maybe we should."
"Although it's a bit of a shame that this wasn't an official match."
"While I'm here on Pasio, I'd love to have a battle with you in front of a proper audience!"
That was super cool!: "So you saw us, <player>! How'd you like our battle?"
That was intense!: "Looks like our heated battle got your attention, too, <player>!"
"It really is a shame that we had to stop before we could finish that battle. I was having a lot of fun!"
"I don't get many opportunities to battle Trainers from places other than Galar, so it's great to battle someone new!"
"I never thought following Charizard after getting lost would lead me to a battle with such a strong sync pair!"
"Pasio is the perfect place to test my strength against Trainers from other regions!"
"I'd love to battle more Champions from all the other regions!"
I wanna see those battles, too!: "Yeah!"
"But actually, wouldn't you rather battle than be a spectator?"
I wanna battle, too!: "That's what I like to hear! Let's do it!"
"Let's have a battle here and now!"
"What's wrong, Charizard? You don't look too happy."
"Maybe you're trying to say this isn't the time?"
"That makes sense. A battle with <player> should also be a proper one, in the right venue."
"Looks like Charizard can tell how strong you are."
"It's all thanks to Charizard that I got to battle Steven, after all!"
"I guess that as Champion, I shouldn't have my partner Pokémon do everything for me."
"I have to work on improving myself, too!"
"Let's see... I know! I could start by finding opponents for us to battle on my own!"
"OK! First, let's head out to those woods over there!"
Wait!: "Oh... Did I mix up my directions again?"
It's the other way!: "Oh, really?"
"Ahahaha! Sorry! Looks like I'll have to rely on you a bit more, Charizard! Otherwise, I don't think I'll get anywhere!"
"Thanks for pointing me the right way! You can join me, if you like!"
Sync Pair Story - A Day with Sygna Suit Leon
"Excellent battle! Let's do it again sometime!"
"Well, what'd you think, mate?"
"Yeah, I thought so, too! That was intense, but you're still not quite satisfied yet, are you."
Why isn't it satisfied?/Were you having a battle?: "Oh, <player>! You've come at just the right moment!"
"You see, we've been challenging all sorts of Trainers to Pokémon battles..."
"but none of those battles have been able to fully satisfy Eternatus."
"No wonder! It has eternal reserves of energy, after all!"
That must be tough to manage.: "I've never thought of it like that...but I suppose it is!"
So what's your plan?: "All I can do is keep finding opponents for us to battle!"
"Eternatus won't stop aiming to get stronger! If I start slacking off, it'll leave me in the dust!"
"This is just my little way of thanking it for becoming my partner!"
That's wonderful!: "Thanks, mate! Coming from you, that means a lot!"
Have you decided who'll be your next opponent?: "Well, I've been trying to battle Trainers from different backgrounds. There are a lot out there, and they're all strong in their own way."
"There are times when even that's not enough to satisfy Eternatus, though!"
"Whenever that happens, I call on Charizard!"
"Those two can fight each other at full strength because they're both strong—and they're rivals!"
"When those two battle it out until they're both exhausted, only then is Eternatus satisfied!"
"But I can see that Eternatus has other plans today."
"It may have sensed that you want to battle us, <player>."
"Are you up for it, then?"
You bet I am!: "That's what I like to hear!"
I'm not gonna lose to you!: "Haha! I don't lose battles either!"
"Right, then! Let's have a champion time!"
Sync Pair Story - A Day with Hop (Champion)
"You and your Pokémon all fought hard. Good effort out there!"
"Made me almost want to let out Charizard and join in on all the fun!"
"How did you two meet?"
"Hahaha! That sounds like a lot of work!"
"You must be battling a lot more since you partnered up with Zapdos, right?"
"I feel like your skills have improved. That's probably why!"
"Wow, I didn't know that!"
"Of course! I'll take you on!"

"He used to always just try to follow in my footsteps, but he's got a lot stronger ever since he started battling his rival all the time."
"One day, he might just become my rival, too! I really hope it happens soon."
  • Random conversation
"Once, my little brother came to me and said, "Lee! I'm so sorry!""
"I think he might've lost a battle and was feeling down about it."
"That might happen to you, too. But when it does, you can bounce right back!"
"Think about why you lost! If you do, you'll become an even better Trainer for it!"
  • Random conversation
"Do you happen to have a childhood friend, <player>?"
"I've got a friend who did the Gym Challenge with me back in the day."
"She still gives me a lot of advice and even helps me find my way when I get lost."

  • Random conversation
"Everyone on the team is helping each other get stronger! Well done!"
"You're a fantastic sync pair with a unique strength!"
  • If spoken to again
"When I battle you, I can feel the love you have for Pokémon and battling!"
"Building on those feelings and making them grow is what's important for getting stronger!"
  • Random conversation
"Battling with you is an exciting clash of spirit and Pokémon moves. It's always a blast!"
"I'd like you to continue being my rival!"
  • If spoken to again
"I wonder how far Galar and Pasio are from each other."
"I'm terrible at finding my way around places, so I might not be able to find the most direct path from Galar to see you."
"But when I get lost, I know I can count on you to guide me!"
  • Random conversation (Sygna Suit)
"Did you know that Eternatus came to the Galar region 20,000 years ago, attached to a meteor?"
"It came all the way from outer space to meet us..."
"When you think about it, it sounds like a fantasy!"
  • Random conversation (Sygna Suit)
"Raihan has been challenging me to a lot of battles recently."
"When we battle, it's super intense! We can feel the power of Eternatus and all our other Pokémon up close!"
"I'd like to have a battle like that with you, too! I'll be sure to challenge you soon!"
  • Random conversation (Sygna Suit)
"This sygna suit matches Eternatus."
"What do you think of this pattern on the sides? Wicked, isn't it?"
"When you see an opening, you've got to attack! That's what it represents!"
  • Random conversation (Sygna Suit)
"I often have Eternatus and Charizard spar with each other."
"They clash with all their might to make each other stronger!"
"You and I could have the same sort of rivalry, too! That's a surefire way for us to get stronger!"
  • Random conversation (Sygna Suit)
"I'm completely different from Eternatus... We grew up in different places and in different ways."
"I think most people would worry about how to get along with someone so different from them. "
"But when we battle, I know that we're connected, deep in our hearts!"
"I think Eternatus feels the same way, too! It's doing its best to get along with humans!"
  • Random conversation (Sygna Suit)
"It can be emotionally demanding to be responsible for such an incredible power."
"In the end, I can only rely on my own strength to wield that power!"
  • If spoken to again
"I still don't know if I'm a Trainer worthy of Eternatus's respect yet."
"But what I can do now is gain more strength as a Trainer and trust Eternatus!"
  • Random conversation (Sygna Suit)
"I tend to get lost quite often."
"Sometimes, Eternatus will walk in front of me and try to lead the way..."
"but I don't think Eternatus is concerned about where I'm headed. So in the end, we still get lost..."
  • If spoken to again
"I may choose the wrong path by mistake, but I don't want to make any mistakes when choosing my future. You feel the same way, don't you?"
"Although...I've never actually regretted any of the paths I've chosen."
"Because everything I've chosen until now has worked out in the end!"

  • Random conversation (Holiday 2021)
"Since I became Champion, I've really been quite busy every day."
"But I've decided that no matter what, I've got to make time to see everyone on special occasions."

  • Random conversation (Holiday 2021)
"My usual cap is pretty cool, but don't you think this hat looks great on me, too?"
"Now I'm thinking I should start trying on even more types of hats. Maybe I could get one of those that you see on a Galarian Weezing!"
"Wait...that's not actually a hat, is it?"
  • Random conversation (Holiday 2021)
