These are Lucian's quotes in the Pokémon games.

In the core series games

Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Brilliant Diamond, and Shining Pearl

Pokémon League
  •  Before battle
"Ah, you timed your arrival well. I've just finished reading a book, you see. Allow me to introduce myself. I am Lucian. I am a user of the Psychic type. I must say, you've already proven yourself to be outstanding by coming this far. They say I am the toughest of the Elite Four. I'm afraid I will have to go all out against you to live up to that reputation."
  •  After sending out last Pokémon
"Hmm... Now what should I do..."
  • Upon being defeated
"I see. You getting past the three before me was no fluke. Your power is real."
  • After being defeated
"Congratulations. You have beaten the Elite Four. However, that doesn't mean you're done with the Pokémon league. There remains the Champion. I should warn you—the Champion is far stronger than the Elite Four. Now, go on. Step through the doorway to your final battle."
  • If talked to after being defeated
"I'll be reading books until the next challenger arrives. That will calm my nerves, so that I may deal with all situations without panicking."
Canalave Library
  • If talked to
"...Ah, hello. You’re here to read, too? Books are wonderful things. The thoughts of people written in books stretch beyond time and space."
  • First variant
"I was just reading a book of philosophy from an ancient, far-off land. Their 'universe' was a word that described both space and time. That people even back then understood the basic tenets of the universe... It fills me with a serene sense of inspiration. I imagine we'll see each other again at the Pokémon League. Take care."
  • Second variant
"I was just reading a collection of observations on Pokémon in the wild. One article addresses the question why Pokémon would go into a Poké Ball. According to this article, this behavior is based on instinct. A weakened Pokémon will curl up tight in an effort to heal itself. The Poké Ball was invented to take advantage of that protective instinct. I imagine we'll see each other again at the Pokémon League. Take care."
  • Third variant
"I was just reading an analytical tome on humankind. It examines the human species from cultural and social perspectives. This is a thought-provoking quote: 'It all began without humans. The end will also be without humans.' The world we share with Pokémon... Does it exist for us? I imagine we'll see each other again at the Pokémon League. Take care."
  • Fourth variant
"I was just reading a collection of essays on the science-fiction genre. There was one quote attributed to a novelist I found remarkable. 'Though love may lose, kindness wins.' I find that philosophical and, at the same time, compassionate. I imagine we'll see each other again at the Pokémon League. Take care."
  • Fifth variant
"I was just reading a collection of letters written by an artist long ago. More precisely, they were written to the artist's younger brother. 'The stars above tantalize from across infinite space. Feeling their gaze from so far away, I am charmed again by life.' The artist must have come to a conclusion seeing the night sky... It's an affirmation of life. It's very moving. I imagine we'll see each other again at the Pokémon League. Take care."

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl only

Pokémon League
  • Before battle
"Just a moment, please. The book I'm reading has nearly reached its thrilling climax... The hero has obtained a mystic sword and is about to face their final trial... Ah, never mind. Since you've made it this far, I'll put that aside and battle you. Let me see if you'll achieve as much glory as the hero of my book!"
  • Upon sending out last Pokémon
"Hmm... How might I turn this situation to my advantage? "
  • Upon being defeated
"I see... It appears you've put me in checkmate."
  • After being defeated
"Truly outstanding. You took full control of the narrative without a moment's hesitation. Now then, the final page has yet to be written. Go and show us who shall emerge victorious. "
  • If talked to after being defeated
"Now then, I can return to the last remaining chapter of my book. Reading allows me to learn from my mistakes. Knowledge keeps me from making more."
  • Second rematch onward
  • Before battle
"Ah, you've timed your arrival perfectly. I'm still quite worked up from the book I just finished. After seeing all you've accomplished thus far, <player>, I can certainly tell you this: you are the protagonist of your own story. And perhaps that just makes me an obstacle standing in the way of your heroic journey. The again, maybe in this retelling I'll finally trip you up! Wouldn't that be an intriguing plot twist? "
  • Upon sending out last Pokémon
"Hmm... How might I turn this situation to my advantage?"
  • Upon being defeated
"So it goes. You held the whole course of the battle in the palm of your hand."
  • After being defeated
"I concede defeat... I used every stratagem at my command, but you persevered through them all. Now all that remains is for you to write your own epilogue!"
  • If talked to after being defeated
"Next I think I’d like to read a book about a star... one small light, illuminating a galaxy of darkness."

"Yes, it appears so. None of you have changed a bit."
"I should be able to observe strategies and battling techniques from various other cultures, so at least I'm unlikely to get bored here."
"Yes, of course. It wouldn't do for me to lose."
"Not to one particular person who's likely to be here, that is."
"I assume you all feel the same?"
"I think that's a good idea. I hope I'm able to find some interesting books while I'm here as well."
Sync Pair Story - A Day with Lucian
"I'll try to get it back to you as soon as possible."
"No, that wouldn't be right. Hmm... What to do..."
What's going on?/Is something wrong?: "Oh, <player>! Well..."
"Acerola has lent me a compilation of legends and folklore from the Alola region."
"But since I've only just arrived on Pasio, I'm so busy that I don't think I'll have much time to read."
"It's a very precious book, so I really shouldn't keep it for too long..."
"That's very kind of you to say..."
"I really am looking forward to reading the book. I would like to start it soon."
"That being said, I can't neglect my training to prepare for battling here on Pasio."
"It's times like this that make me a bit envious of Girafarig."
Why's that?: "The answer lies with Girafarig's heads."
Because of its heads?: "Well observed. Yes, precisely that."
"Girafarig has two heads–a front one and a rear one."
"The rear head isn't the best thinker, but it's very good at battling. It also has no need for sleep."
"Because of that, it can keep a constant eye on its surroundings while the front head is sleeping."
"Indeed. Sometimes I wish that I also had two heads: one that could stay up late reading as much as I wish..."
"and one that could concentrate on battling, as a member of the Elite Four should."
"But of course that's entirely unrealistic."
"At Sinnoh's Pokémon League, I get my reading done while waiting for challengers."
"Time is a limited resource, after all, and I try to make good use of it."
"Yes, go ahead. I recommend it."
"Oh, you must be–"
"So you are an author, as I thought! Yes, of course I'd love to read it."
"But at this rate...even two heads won't be enough."
"What would you do in this situation, Girafarig?"

"Why don't you try visiting if you're ever in Sinnoh?"
  • Random conversation
"The thoughts written down in a book transcend both time and space."
