These are Marlon's quotes in the Pokémon games.

In the core series

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

Humilau City
"Sup, you must be here to challenge the Pokémon Gym! I'm the Gym Leader, Marlon. Sorry to make you look for me, yo. I was swimmin' with the Pokémon, and it felt real good, so I kept goin' and goin'. I'll be waitin' in the Gym, 'K?"
Humilau Gym
  • Before battle
"Sup! Here already, huh? You look strong! Shoots! Let's start!"
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"Dude... You're really into this, huh!"
  • After sending out last Pokémon
"Awww, dude... I know I'm about done, but I'm still just so pumped up!"
  • Being defeated
"You totally rocked that! You're raising some wicked Pokémon. You got this Trainer thing down!"
  • After being defeated
"You don't just look strong, you're strong fo' reals! Eh, I was swept away, too! Oh yeah, yo. I was so surprised that I forgot! I gotta give this to you!"
"That's the Wave Badge, the Unova region's new Gym Badge! Pretty sweet, right? Now you got all eight Badges, so you can be tight with any Pokémon! Oh yeah, got a TM for you, too!"
"So Scald sometimes burns the target, 'K? Oh, and you can even use it when you're all frozen and chillin' and stuff! Shoots! I'm off then! Hope it's useful!"
Humilau City
"Sup yo! What's this Team Plasma you're talking about do?"
"Nope! When the ocean's your home, you don't worry about things like that. 'Cause the ocean accepts all rivers! So you think Team Plasma's bad, then?"
Yes: "I get it. They're bad, so you fight 'em."
No: Shoots! Not bad... You think that but still fight!"
But, first, you got to say that in your own words. When you do, you'll understand better what you want to do and what you're hopin' for! Well then..."
Route 21
"Hold up!"
"Eh, this should do it!"
"Hey, friends! Team Plasma's not botherin' me. They could be up to no good for reals, and... It's not my style to go around decidin' Team Plasma's bad without thinkin' 'bout it just 'cause everyone says so! But, eh, you're havin' trouble, so I've got to help out! That's what I want to do!"
"Listen, 'K. Believe in somethin'! Searchin' for stolen Pokémon is fine! Keepin' Unova from bein' iced over's fine too! It's all good. But think 'bout why you're doin' that. The strength of your beliefs is what gives you and your Pokémon power! I made some noise, so some people came out! Hey, be careful, 'K!"
Humilau Gym
  • If talked to
  • If talked to (post-game)
"Waves can be rough of calm, but it's still the same sea! Eh, there're lots of ways to look at the same thing!"
Pokémon World Tournament
  • Before battle (first round)
"You look strong! Shoots! Let's start!"
  • Before battle (second round)
"I'm strong like the ocean's wide. You're gonna get swept away, fo' sho'. Eh, that's enough talk! I'll prove it! Let's get started, 'K?"
  • Before battle (final round)
"Oh ho, so I'm facing you! That's off the wall. How 'bout you and I make some waves and sweep the audience away? Let's leave 'em with even bigger smiles!"
  • Being defeated
"You're strong as a gnarly wave and as nice as a glassy sea."
  • If the player is defeated
"You're tough, but it's not enough to sway the sea, 'K!"
  • After being defeated
"You don't just look strong--you're strong fo' reals! Eh, I was swept away, too!"
  • After winning
"The tide comes in an' out, and in life you win and lose! What's important is that it keeps goin'."
  • In the lobby, after the tournament
"Eh, right now, you're like a ragin' sea that washes everythin' away! Uihaa! What a great battle, yo!"
Badge Case
It's cliché to compare life to a rough sea, but don't be swept away!

Sync Pair Story - A Day with Marlon
  • Off-screen
"Wooo! The ocean's so big 'n' bluuue!"
  • After appearing
"Ohoho! 'Sup, <player>!"
"Yo, Pasio's beaches are seriously outta this world, dude!"
"We've been swimmin' out here since the crack o' dawn!"
You must really like to swim.: "Totally, dude! I've been swimmin' since before I could walk!"
Don't you ever get tired?: "Ha ha ha! Man, I've literally spent ALL DAY in the water before. Wicked, right?!"
"Me 'n' Carracosta feel more at home in the water than we do on land!"
"We actually swam here to Pasio all the way from the Unova region, dude!"
You did WHAT?!/What do you mean, you "swam"?!: "Yeah, man! Me 'n' Carracosta decided to go for a long-distance swim off an island we were stayin' at."
"Then, all of a sudden, this weird circle appeared outta nowhere, right in front of our eyes!"
"It looked pretty rad, so we just dove right in. I mean, how could we NOT?"
"Anyway, we kept swimmin' and swimmin'...and eventually we ended up here on this island! Crazy, right?!"
Weren't you scared?: "Ha ha ha! Nah, dude! I was too stoked to see what was on the other side to be scared!"
Are you...OK?: "Yeah, dude! We're both fine... Actually, MORE than fine! I'm stoked we made it all the way here."
"That reminds me—this one time back in the day, I was feelin' totally wiped out after a Pokémon battle..."
"Carracosta was all outta whack, too, so we decided to bail out on a trip we were plannin' on takin' with a friend."
"When our friend got back from the trip, he told us about all the fun stuff we missed out on..."
"I realized in hindsight that I shoulda gone on that trip anyway, even if I was tired. "
"Ever since that day, I've been tellin' myself to dive headfirst into anything that seems fun."
"But to do that, I gotta max out my upper body strength, so I've been out here swimmin' every day!"
"I swim till my arms feel like they're gonna fall off!"
"But if doin' that means I get to go all out 'n' have fun all over the world, that's fine with me!"
"You feel the same way, don't you, dude?"
"You got those thrill-seeker vibes! I can tell you go all out to have a good time!"
Yep, that's me!: "Dude, I knew it! I knew there was a reason we get along!"
I guess so.: "What do you mean, you guess so?! Aren't you havin' wicked fun out here every day gettin' ready for the PML?"
"Yo, maybe I'm seein' things, but your Pokémon looks totally happy to me! That's proof enough, dude."
"Man, I'm stoked to see where you go from here! You got some serious talent, dude!"
"If you ever get serious, you might even beat me! There's no way I'm gonna let that happen, though!"
"Ha ha ha! Aw, man! I can't wait for that battle!"
"It's one more wave we can look forward to shreddin' one day, Carracosta!"

"Dude! You rocked out even here by the sea! You're strong fo' reals!"
Pokémon Center
  • Random conversation
"Yo, you know how much I love the ocean, right? Can you believe I actually almost drowned once?"
"It's true! Just when I thought I wasn't gonna make it, I got rescued by one o' the Caring Pokémon, Alomomola."
"I was barely conscious, but thanks to Alomomola's rad healing abilities, I made it back to safety."
"I'll never forget how the membrane on its back felt while it carried me to shore—soft and slippery but kinda warm, too."
  • If spoken to again
"I wonder how that Alomomola's doing these days..."
"The ocean's full o' friendly fishes! I love 'em all, dude!"

"I dunno how else to say it..."
  • If spoken to again

"You should come swim with me when you feel up to it, <player>!"
  • If spoken to again
"If you wanna get a real feel for what the ocean's like, swimmin' is where it's at."

"But listen! It looks gigantic on the surface, right? But there's so much underneath that you can't even see!"
"I mean, all kinds o' rivers feed into the ocean, and the ocean just takes 'em all in, no questions asked!"
"That's how I wanna be! Openhearted and accepting of others, just like the ocean."
  • If spoken to again
"When I'm swimmin' in the big, open ocean, I stop carin' about all the stuff that worries me on land."
"I know what I wanna do and who I wanna be, yo!"
"I wanna be epic! I wanna be openhearted! I wanna be a true man o' the sea!"
  • Random conversation
"I try to always judge things with my own two eyes, you know?"
"I mean, who's a good person? Who's a bad person? That's somethin' you've gotta judge for yourself!"
"If you let somebody else make that judgment for you, you might miss out on something awesome one day, dude."
  • If spoken to again
"If you see somebody in trouble, you should help 'em out, no questions asked!"
"Even if another dude tells you they're a bad person, that shouldn't stop you from helpin' 'em out!"
"That's how I live my life, dude! I believe it to my core."
