Intro

"Hello there! Welcome to the world of Pokémon! My name is Oak! People call me the Pokémon Prof! This world is inhabited by creatures called Pokémon! For some people, Pokémon are pets. Other use them for fights. Myself… I study Pokémon as a profession. First, what is your name? Right! So your name is <player>! This is my grandson. He's been your rival since you were a baby. …Erm, what is his name again? That's right! I remember now! His name is <rival>! <player>! Your very own Pokémon legend is about to unfold! A world of dreams and adventures with Pokémon awaits! Let's go!"

Pallet Town

  • While trying to get into tall grass:
"Hey! Wait! Don't go out! It's unsafe! Wild Pokémon live in tall grass! You need your own Pokémon for your protection. I know! Here, come with me!"RB
"Hey! Wait! Don't go out! That was close! Wild Pokémon live in tall grass!"Y
  • After encountering and catching PikachuY
"Whew… A Pokémon can appear anytime in tall grass. You need your own Pokémon for your protection. I know! Here, come with me!"

Oak's Lab

  • After getting dragged into lab:
"<rival>? Let me think… Oh, that's right. I told you to come! Just wait! Here, <player>! There are 3 Pokémon here! Haha! They are inside the Poké Balls. When I was young, I was a serious Pokémon trainer! In my old age, I have only 3 left, but you can have one! Choose!RB
"Hmm? <rival>? Why are you here already? I said for you to come by later… Ah, whatever! Just wait there. Look, <player>! Do you see that ball on the table? It's called a Poké Ball. It holds a Pokémon inside. You may have it! Go on, take it!Y
Be patient! <rival>, you can have one too!"RB
Be patient, <rival>, I'll give you one later."Y
  • Before choosing starter:
"Now, <player>, which Pokémon do you want?"RB
"Go ahead, it's yours!"Y
  • If player tries to go away before choosing starter:
"Hey! Don't go away yet!"
  • When choosing PokémonRB:
"So! You want the fire/water/plant Pokémon, Charmander/Squirtle/Bulbasaur?"
  • After choosing starterRB:
"This Pokémon is really energetic!"
  • When rival snatches PokémonY:
"<rival>! What are you doing?"
"But, I… Oh, all right then. That Pokémon is yours. I was going to give you one anyway… <player>, come over here. <player>, this is the Pokémon I caught earlier. You can have it. I caught it in the wild and it's not tame yet."
  • Before battling rival:
"If a wild Pokémon appears, your Pokémon can fight against it!"
"Afterward, go on to the next town."Y
  • After battling rivalY:
"What? Would you look at that! It's odd, but it appears that your Pikachu dislikes Poké Balls. You should just keep it with you. That should make it happy! You can talk to it and see how it feels about you.
  • If talked to after battling rival:
"<player>, raise your young Pokémon by making it fight!"RB
"You should talk to it and see how it feels."Y
  • After receiving Oak's Parcel:
"Oh, <player>! How is my old Pokémon? Well, it seems to like you a lot. You must be talented as a Pokémon trainer! What? You have something for me? Ah! This is the custom Poké Ball I ordered! Thank you!"RB
"Oh, <player>! How is my old Pokémon? Well, it seems to like you a lot. You must be talented as a Pokémon trainer! What? You have something for me? Ah! This is the custom Poké Ball I ordered! Thanks, <player>! By the way, I must ask you to do something for me."Y
  • When rival joins player and Oak in the lab:
"Oh, right! I have a request of you two. On the desk there is my invention, Pokédex! It automatically records data on Pokémon you've seen or caught! It's a hi-tech encyclopedia! <player> and <rival>! Take these with you!RB
"Ah, <rival>, good timing! I needed to ask both of you to do something for me. On the desk there is my invention, Pokédex! It automatically records data on Pokémon you've seen or caught! It's a hi-tech encyclopedia! <player> and <rival>! Take these with you!Y
  • After player and rival received the Pokedex:
"To make a complete guide on all the Pokémon in the world… That was my dream! But, I'm too old! I can't do it! So, I want you two to fulfill my dream for me! Get moving, you two! This is a great undertaking in Pokémon history!"
  • If talked to once again after rival leaves the lab:
"Pokémon around the world wait for you, <player>!"
  • If player defeated rival on Route 22 and hasn't bought Poké Balls or added caught data to Pokédex
"You can't get detailed data on Pokémon by just seeing them. You must catch them! Use these to capture wild Pokémon."
"When a wild Pokémon appears, it's fair game. Just throw a Poké Ball at it and tr to catch it! This won't always work, though. A healthy Pokémon could escape. You have to be lucky!"RB
"When a wild Pokémon appears, it's fair game. Just like I showed you, throw a Poké Ball at it and tr to catch it! This won't always work, though. A healthy Pokémon could escape. You have to be lucky!"Y
  • If talked to once again:
"Come see me sometimes. I want to know how your Pokédex is coming along."

I'm disappointed! I came when I heard you beat the Elite Four! But, when I got here, you had already lost! <rival>! Do you understand why you lost? You have forgotten to treat your Pokémon with trust and love! Without them, you will never become a champ again! <player>! You understand that your victory was not just your own doing! The bond you share with your Pokémon is marvelous! <player>! Come with me!"

Intro

"Hello! Sorry to keep you waiting! Welcome to the world of Pokémon! My name is Oak. People call me the Pokémon Prof. This world is inhabited by creatures that we call Pokémon. People and Pokémon live together by supporting each other. Some people play with Pokémon, some battle with them. But we don't know everything about Pokémon yet. There are still many mysteries to solve. That's why I study Pokémon every day. Now, what did you say your name was? <player>, are you ready? Your very own Pokémon story is about to unfold. You'll face fun times and tough challenges. A world of dreams and adventures with Pokémon awaits! Let's go! I'll be seeing you later!"

Mr. Pokémon's house

"Aha! So you're <player>! I'm Oak! A Pokémon researcher. I was just visiting my old friend Mr.Pokémon. I heard you were running an errand for Prof.Elm, so I waited here. Oh! What's this? A rare Pokémon! Let's see… Hm, I see! I understand why Prof.Elm gave you a Pokémon for this errand. To researchers like Prof.Elm and I, Pokémon are our friends. He saw that you would treat your Pokémon with love and care. …Ah! You seem to be dependable. How would you like to help me out? See? This is the latest version of Pokédex. It automatically records data on Pokémon you've seen or caught. It's a hi-tech encyclopedia! Go meet many kinds of Pokémon and complete that Pokédex! But I've stayed too long. I have to get to Goldenrod for my usual radio show. <player>, I'm counting on you!"

Indigo Plateau

"Ah, <player>! It's been a long while. You certainly look more matureGS/impressiveC. Your conquest of the League is just fantastic! Your dedication, trust and love for your Pokémon made this happen. Your Pokémon were outstanding too! Because they believed in you as a trainer, they persevered. Congratulations, <player>!"

Oak's Lab

"Ah, <player>! It's good of you to come all this way to Kanto. What do you think of the trainers out here? Pretty tough, huh?"
  • Player has no Kanto Gym Badges
"Hmm? You're not collecting Kanto Gym Badges? The Gym Leaders in Kanto are as tough as any you battled in Johto. I recommend that you challenge them."
  • Player has at least one Kanto Gym Badge
"Ah, you're collecting Kanto Gym Badges. I imagine it's hard, but the experience is sure to help you. Come see me when you get them all. I'll have a gift for you. Keep trying hard, <player>!"
  • Player has all Kanto Gym Badges
"Wow! That's excellent! You collected the Badges of Gyms in Kanto. Well done! I was right in my assessment of you. Tell you what, <player>. I'll make arrangements so that you can go to Mt. Silver. Mt. Silver is a big mountain that is home to many wild Pokémon. It's too dangerous for your average trainer, so it's off limits. But we can make an exception in your case, <player>. Go up to Indigo Plateau. You can reach Mt. Silver from there."

How is your Pokédex coming? Let's see…
Current Pokédex completion level:

Intro

"Hello, there! Glad to meet you! Welcome to the world of Pokémon! My name is Oak. People affectionately refer to me as the Pokémon Professor. This world… …is inhabited far and wide by creatures called Pokémon! For some people, Pokémon are pets. Other use them for battling. As for myself… I study Pokémon as a profession. But first, tell me a little about yourself. Now tell me. Are you a boy? Or are you a girl? Let's begin with your name. What is it? Right… So your name is <player>. This is my grandson. He's been your rival since you both were babies. …Erm, what was his name now? …Er, was it <rival>? That's right! I remember now! His name is <rival>! <player>! Your own very Pokémon legend is about to unfold! A world of dreams and adventures with Pokémon awaits! Let's go!"

Pallet Town

  • While trying to get into tall grass:
"Hey! Wait! Don't go out! It's unsafe! Wild Pokémon live in tall grass! You need your own Pokémon for your protection. I know! Here, come with me!"
  • After resuming game after beating rival before receiving National Pokédex, if the Sevii sidequest is not done:
"Ah, <player>! You seem to be enjoying traveling. Knowing you, <player>, I can easily imagine you going out to even more exotic locales. Good for you, good for you. Hohoho."
  • After resuming game after beating rival before receiving National Pokédex, if the Sevii sidequest is done with fewer than 60 Pokémon owned:
"Ah, <player>! You're back, are you? How much have you filled in your Pokédex? May I see it? Let's see… You've caught <number of owned Pokémon>… Hm, it looks as if you're putting in an honest effort. When you manage to fill it some more, come show me, please."
  • After resuming game after beating rival before receiving National Pokédex, if the Sevii sidequest is done with 60 or more Pokémon owned:
"Ah, <player>! You're back, are you? How much have you filled in your Pokédex? May I see it? Let's see… You've caught… <number of owned Pokémon>!? Now, this is impressive! There's something I wanted to ask of you, <player>. Come. Follow me.

Oak's Lab

  • Battle
"Oh, for Pete's sake… So pushy, as always. <player>. You've never had a Pokémon battle before, have you? A Pokémon battle is when Trainers pit their Pokémon against each other. The Trainer that makes the other Trainer's Pokémon faint by lowering their HP to ‌“0,” wins. But rather than talking about it, you'll learn more from experience. Try battling and see for yourself."
  • Damaging move used for first time:
"Inflicting damage on the foe is the key to any battle."
  • Stat-lowering move used for the first time:
"Lowering the foe's stats will put you at an advantage."
  • Party screen is shown for first time (via either Pokémon button or using Potion):
"It's important to get know your Pokémon thoroughly. This is a list of your Pokémon, <player>. Open this to check the skills and moves of your Pokémon. You also choose Pokémon here if you want to use an item on one."
  • Pokémon is healed via Potion:
"Keep your eyes on your Pokémon's HP. It will faint if the HP drops to “0.”
  • If player tries to run:
"No! There's no running away from a Trainer Pokémon battle!"
  • Battle is won:
"Hm! Excellent! If you win, you earn prize money, and your Pokémon will grow! Battle other Trainers and make your Pokémon strong!"
  • Battle is lost:
"Hm! How disappointing… If you win, you earn prize money, and your Pokémon will grow. But if you lose, <player>, you end up paying prize money… However, since you had no warning this time, I'll pay for you. But things won't be this way once you step outside these doors. That's why you must strengthen your Pokémon by battling wild Pokémon. "
  • Overworld
  • After getting dragged into lab:
"<rival>? Let me think… Oh, that's right, I told you to come! Just wait! Here, <player>! There are three Pokémon here. Haha! The Pokémon are held inside these Poké Balls. When I was young, I was a serious Pokémon Trainer. But now, in my old age, I have only these three left. You can have one. Go on, choose!
Be patient! <rival>. You can have one, too!"
  • Before choosing starter:
"Now, <player>. Inside those three Poké Balls are Pokémon. Which one will you choose for yourself?"
  • If player tries to go away before choosing starter:
"Hey! Don't go away yet!"
  • When choosing Bulbasaur:
"I see! Bulbasaur is your choice. It's very easy to raise. So, <player>, you want to go with the Grass Pokémon Bulbasaur?
  • When choosing Squirtle:
"Hm! Squirtle is your choice. It's one worth raising. So, <player>, you've decided on the Water Pokémon Squirtle?
  • When choosing Charmander:
"Ah! Charmander is your choice. You should raise it patiently. So, <player>, you're claiming the Fire Pokémon Charmander?
  • After choosing starter:
"This Pokémon is really quite energetic!"
  • Before battling rival:
"If a wild Pokémon appears, your Pokémon can battle it. With it at your side, you should be able to reach the next town."
  • If talked to after battling rival:
"<player>, raise your young Pokémon by making it battle. It has to battle for it to grow."
  • After receiving Oak's Parcel:
"Oh, <player>! How is my old Pokémon? Well, it seems to be growing more attached to you. You must be talented as a Pokémon Trainer. What's that? You have something for me? Ah! It's the custom Poké Ball! I had it on order. Thank you!
"Oh, right! I have a request for you two. On the desk there is my invention, the Pokédex! It automatically records data on Pokémon you've seen or caught. It's a high-tech encyclopedia! <player> and <rival>. Take these with you. You can't get detailed data on Pokémon by just seeing them. You must catch them to obtain complete data. So, here are some tools for catching wild Pokémon. When a wild Pokémon appears, it's fair game. Just throw a Poké Ball at it and try to catch it! This won't always work, however. A healthy Pokémon can escape. You have to be lucky! To make a complete guide on all the Pokémon in the world… That was my dream! But, I'm too old! I can't get the job done. So, I want you two to fulfill my dream for me. Get moving, you two. This is a great undertaking in Pokémon history!
  • When receiving National Pokédex:
"Ah, now this is excellent! <player>, I have another important favor to ask of you. I need you to listen closely. Recently there have been sightings of many rare Pokémon species. I'm talking about Pokémon that have never been seen in Kanto. I would love to go see things for myself, but I'm much too old. Since I can't do it, <player>, I'd like you to go in my place.
"I know, I know. Of course I need your help, too. Now, I need to see both your Pokédexes. … … … … … … … … … … … … …And that's done! Now these units can record data on a lot more Pokémon. Now, <player> and <rival>! This time, you must really must work towards filling your Pokédexes. I urge you to make them the best and the most complete of all time! Truly, this is a monumentally great undertaking in Pokémon history!
  • If talked again before leaving after getting National Pokédex:
"Pokémon around the world wait for you, <player>!

You've grown up so much since you first left with <starter> to work on the Pokédex. <player>, you have come of age! <rival>… I'm disappointed in you. I came when I heard you'd beaten the Elite Four. But, when I got here, you had already lost! <rival>, do you understand why you lost? You have forgotten to treat your Pokémon with love and trust.

"...... Hmm. Looks like the sun is descending in the sky... ...So this would be what is called "twilight," wouldn't be it?"
  • If time is from 7:00PM to 11:59PM
"...... Hmm... Interesting... ... Huh? Oh! Excuse me, sorry! I was just reading this book here."

The rest is as follows

"Sorry to keep you waiting! Welcome to the world of Pokémon! My name is Professor Oak. But everyone calls me the Pokémon Professor. Before we go any further, I'd like to tell you a few things you should know about this world! This world is widely inhabited by creatures known as Pokémon. We humans live alongside Pokémon as friends. At times we play together, and at other times we work together. Some people use their Pokémon to battle and develop closer bonds with them. Now, why don't you tell me a little bit about yourself? Are you a boy? Or are you a girl? Won't you please tell me?"
"So, you're a boy/girl then?"
"Please tell me your name."
"Your name is <name>?"
"<Player>! Are you ready? Your very own tale of grand adventure is about to unfold. Fun experiences, difficult experiences, there's so much waiting for you! Dreams! Adventure! Let's go to the world of Pokémon! I'll see you later!"

Mr. Pokémon's house

"And with that... I'm Professor Oak, a Pokémon researcher! So you're <player>! I was just visiting my friend Mr. Pokémon. I heard you were running an errand for Professor Elm, so I waited here. Oh! What's this? A rare Pokémon! I see! You must be helping Professor Elm's research! I think I understand why Professor Elm gave you that Pokémon. You will treat your Pokémon with love and care, it seems. ...Ah! You seem to be dependable. How would you like to help me out? See? This is the latest version of the Pokédex. It automatically records data on Pokémon you've seen or caught. It's a high-tech encyclopedia! I'd like you to have it. Go meet many kinds of Pokémon and complete that Pokédex! But I've stayed too long. I have to get to Goldenrod for my usual radio show. <player>, I have a feeling that is not the last time we'll meet... Let's exchange numbers just to be on the safe side."

Pallet Town

  • Choosing Kanto Starter
  • If spoken to again after having been offered a Kanto starter, but before choosing one
"You don't see them very often in Kanto. Choose one and it'll be yours! ...Go ahead!"
  • When checking the Charmander Poké Ball
"So, you're claiming the Fire Pokémon Charmander?"
  • When checking the Squirtle Poké Ball
"So, you've decided on the Water Pokémon Squirtle?"
  • When checking the Bulbasaur Poké Ball
"So, you want to go with the Grass Pokémon Bulbasaur?"
  • When declining any starter
"No need to hurry. Take your time."
  • Upon choosing starter
"This Pokémon is really energetic!"
  • After starter has been added to party
"If a wild Pokémon appears, your Pokémon can battle it. With it at your side, you should be able to reach the next town... What am I saying? You already know all this! Hahaha!"
  • Embedded Tower Legendaries
Oh, <player>! What brought you here?
The legendary Pokémon that appear in the Hoenn myth?
You must be talking about Kyogre and Groudon!
The Embedded Tower is probably the ruins that has something to do with the Hoenn myth. If so, the other one must be around.
Kyogre and Groudon are said to have shaped the seas and lands!
Where those two are, the other Pokémon is said to appear as well... All this is quite possible!
It's not hard to imagine that the Red OrbHG/Blue OrbSS will make GroudonHG/KyogreSS appear at the Embedded Tower...
However, according to Mr. Pokémon, GroudonHG/KyogreSS does not show itself to Trainers with golden heartsHG/shining-silver spiritsSS, but only to those with shining-silver spiritsHG/golden heartsSS.
It may be difficult for you alone to accomplish this, <player>.
But if you manage to obtain a GroudonHG/KyogreSS that came from the Embedded Tower, please do come and show me both legendary Pokémon!
I will then share with you the rest of the Hoenn myth!
  • If spoken to while both Groudon and Kyogre from the Embedded Tower are in the player's party
You did it, <player>! You caught both Kyogre and Groudon! OK! I would like to entrust this to you!
It resembles the Orb you received from Mr. Pokémon, doesn't it?'
It is called the Jade Orb. It has something to do with Rayquaza.
Legend has it that the battle between Groudon and Kyogre shaped the lands and seas of Hoenn.
Volcanic eruptions and giant waves are said to have completely changed the shape of the land there.
But then Rayquaza came down to halt the battle.
It is a Pokémon that rules the skies!
If the Embedded Tower is related to Kyogre and Groudon, then going there with that Jade Orb will surely make something happen.
  • If spoken to while Rayquaza is in the player's party
You have successfully caught Rayquaza!
The strong power of the Jade Orb must have attracted Rayquaza there!
Pokémon are sometimes greatly attracted by certain Orbs and Stones. No one knows why.
Perhaps memories from ancient times... when this planet was born... and Pokémon, also... are making Pokémon behave that way.

Indigo Plateau

"Ah, <player>! It's been a long while. You certainly look more impressive. Your conquest of the League is just fantastic! Your dedication, love, and trust for your Pokémon made this happen. Your Pokémon were outstanding, too. Because they believed in you as a Trainer, you persevered. Congratulations, <player>!"

Professor Oak's Laboratory

  • Upon first meeting
"Ah, <player>! It's good of you to come all this way to Kanto. What do you think of the Trainers out here? Pretty tough, huh?"
"Hmm? You're not collecting Kanto Gym Badges? The Gym Leaders in Kanto are as tough as any you battled in Johto. I recommend that you challenge them. So, how's your Pokédex coming along?"
  • If the player has started to collect Kanto Gym Badges
"Ah, you're collecting Kanto Gym Badges. I imagine that it's hard, but the experience will surely help you. Come see me when you get them all. I'll have a gift for you. Keep it up, <player>! So how's your Pokédex coming along?"
  • Via Pokégear while inside Professor Oak's Laboratory
"Hello, this is Professor Oak... Hmm... It's strange. I know your voice, <player>, but somehow hearing it over the phone makes it sound so different."

Pokédex evaluation

  • Via Pokégear
"Hello, this is Professor Oak... Oh, hello, <player>! So, how's your Pokédex coming along?"
Quit
"Show me your Pokédex again anytime!"
Evaluate
"Hmm, let's see... You've seen <number> Pokémon, and you've caught <number> Pokémon! I see! <evaluation quote> Show me your Pokédex again anytime!"

  • 170-184
"When you trade Pokémon, you can also trade information. Your friends can really help you!"
  • 185-199
"Are you trading your Pokémon? It's tough to do this alone!"
  • 200-214
"Wow! You've reached 200! Your Pokédex is looking great!"
  • 215-229
"You've found so many Pokémon! You've really helped my studies!"
  • 230-244
"Magnificent! You have the ability to become a great Pokémon Professor someday!"
  • 245-255 (at least one non-event Pokémon missing)
"Your Pokédex is amazing! You're ready to turn professional!"
  • Johto Pokedex is complete (254-256; all non-event Pokémon caught)
Wow!
That is a complete Johto Pokédex!
Thanks to you, <player>, the Johto Pokédex is complete!
Wow…
You've done an incredible job!
  • If Johto Pokédex is already complete (pre-National)*
"Really, you've surprised me! But just as I expected, you've completed the Johto Pokédex. I am so grateful! If you've got much determination, then even more exciting adventures await you in the world of Pokémon!"

National Pokédex

  • 0-100
"The goal may be far away, but don't give up yet! Keep going!"
  • 101-150
"Don't forget, some Pokémon only appear at certain times of the day!"
  • 151-200
"If you break rocks, some Pokémon that were hiding there might come jumping out!"
  • 201-250
"That's wonderful you've been able to gather this many Pokémon! The path ahead is long. Keep up the great work!"
  • 251-300
"If you Headbutt a tree, sometimes a Pokémon might fall out!"
  • 301-350
"A lot of Pokémon not found in the Johto region like to congregate at the Safari Zone."
  • 351-400
"Music on the radio might also entice Pokémon to leap out!"
  • 401-435
"Wow, you've gotten so far...! I'm actually a little surprised!"
  • 436-465
"This is a critical moment! You can't become discouraged!"
  • 466-475
"Just a little more! I've got high expectations for you!"
  • 476-492 (at least one non-event Pokémon is missing*)
"I have never before in all my years seen such an incredible Trainer!"
  • National Pokédex complete (484-493; all non-event Pokémon caught)
Excellent!
That is an amazing National Pokédex!
Wow…
You've lived up to my expectations wonderfully!
No, you've exceeded them, <player>. You've become an amazing Trainer!
Thank you, <player>!
  • After completing both the Johto and National Pokédex*
You have truly surprised me!
You've more than exceeded my expectations. You've gone far past them in completing the National Pokédex!
I'm speechless…!
Because of this, the world of Pokémon and Trainers is more vast, deeper, and more abundant!
Now there will be no end to Pokémon research!

Hey You, Pikachu!

Viridian Forest Edge
"Thanks for coming. This is the Viridian Forest Edge, where wild Pokémon come to play. Right now, I'd like to test you to see if you can learn to use the PokéHelper. The test is simple. Just speak to that PIKACHU so it listens to you. Now then, face PIKACHU and speak to it while holding the Z button. I hope it goes well for you!"
  • When the player talks to Pikachu:
"PIKACHU heard you! The PokéHelper reads your feelings and conveys them to Pokémon. Speak to PIKACHU once more!"
  • When the player talks to Pikachu again:
"PIKACHU thought it heard something. Keep talking to it until it notices you!"
  • When the player talks to Pikachu again:
"It looks like PIKACHU still hasn't figured out where your voice is coming from. Well, keep talking to it until it comes up to you!"
  • When the player talks to Pikachu again:
"You passed the test! Amazing! Even a wild Pokémon can tell that you're good-hearted! I knew that you could pass my test. I'll let you use that PokéHelper from now on."
  • When Pikachu leaves:
"Even though you connected with PIKACHU, it's taking off. Maybe you should go home for the day, too. I'll teach you some things tomorrow."
The Bedroom
(Speaking at the television.) "Good morning. Were you too excited to sleep last night? Ha, ha...I thought so. Well, the PIKACHU from yesterday is in Viridian Forest. I'll show you the way again. I hope you can become even better friends with PIKACHU."
Entrance to Viridian Forest
"The PIKACHU from yesterday is sleeping. Call it to wake it. Say PIKACHU as you hold the Z Button."
(Pikachu wakes up.)
"Look! Signs appeared on the left and right sides of the screen. That means PIKACHU wants to talk to you! Now greet PIKACHU!"
(Pikachu holds a beach ball.)
"What on earth did PIKACHU pick up? See that <hand sign> beside the thing it is holding? When you press the B Button, the PokéHelper will describe the item that the <hand sign> is pointing to. SOme of my advice is also listed, so it should be pretty helpful. Now press the B Button and read the description."
"I guess it's a beach ball. I think 'throw it' was written in red letters in the description. The PokéHelper uses red to show the words that PIKACHU understands. Now try saying 'throw it'."
  • When the player says "throw it":
"Oh my! Somehow PIKACHU thought it was told do drop it."
(Pikachu looks up.)
"PIKACHU is looking up at something. I wonder if it sees something? Try calling to PIKACHU."
  • When the player calls Pikachu:
"PIKACHU is more interested in the sky than your voice. Try calling it again."
  • When the player calls Pikachu again:
"The signs appeared on the left and right sides of the screen. It looks like PIKACHU wants to talk to you. Now then, try asking it 'what's up there?'."
  • When the player asks "What's up there?":
"Oh, is that what is was? You know what it meant, right?"
(Pikachu holds an apple.)
"What's this? PIKACHU wants you to guess the name of the item it's holding. Maybe you should check the description in the PokéHelper."
  • When the player says "apple":
(Pikachu eats the apple.)
"PIKACHU seems to be very happy."
"Oh, too bad. It's about time to head home."
