  • Before battle
"Ho! So yeh've made it clear up here! I'm the Gym Leader. Ramos's the name. So what'd yeh think, whippersnapper? Did yeh enjoy the garden playground I made with all these sturdy plants o' mine? Their strength is a sign o' my strength as a gardener and a Gym Leader! Yeh sure yer up to facing all that?"
  • Upon being defeated
"Yeh can't take things too quickly when it comes to forming a friendship with yer Pokémon, sprout!"
  • After being defeated
"Yeh believe in yer Pokémon... And they believe in yeh, too... Mighty oaks from acorns grow. Go on, then. Yeh've earned it. Here's yer own Plant Badge, sprout."
"If yeh've got yerself a Plant Badge, then yeh can use the HM Fly even when not battling. It's a real boon. Pokémon up to Lv. 60 will listen to yeh, too, easy as falling off a log. Even if yeh got 'em from a trade. Here--have this, too. Might as well make hay while the sun shines, I reckon."
"That TM there is for Grass Knot. Yeh can use it to trip yer opponent up in the grass. The heavier the opponent, the harder it'll fall--and the more it'll hurt. Ain't it a marvel? Frail little blades o' grass can break through concrete, even. I can't help admirin' that strength."
  • Post-game
"When yeh know for certain sure yeh ain't never gonna meet again... Well, yeh can give in and accept it. But if yeh think there might be a chance, and yeh wander the world for 3,000 years tortured by that flicker of hope... I tell yeh, sprout, I couldn't have stood it."

Ramos in the anime

Ramos debuted in Thawing an Icy Panic!. He first appeared with his Gogoat, after Clemont accidentally broke the gate to his Grass-type garden. After an angry Vanillish and Vanilluxe created a snowstorm after hearing Vanillite's wail, as it was captured by Team Rocket, Ramos searched Coumarine City for the cause. After Gogoat rescued Ash from Vanillish and Vanilluxe, he used his Jumpluff's Sunny Day to stop the snowstorm and then had multiple Sunflora use Solar Beam to destroy the snow. Then, Vanillish and Vanilluxe, as well as Vanillite, were captured by their mecha. As a result, he used his Gogoat to destroy the mecha, assisted by Ash and his friends' Pokémon. Afterwards, Ash and his friends' Pokémon sent Team Rocket blasting off, and the three captured Pokémon were rescued and went off happily. Later, he went back to the Coumarine Gym, and Clemont correctly deduced that he was the Gym Leader.

In his debut, Ramos lectured Ash on the importance of not only facing challenges head-on, but sometimes taking the "side road" as well. He demonstrated this by using Jumpluff and Sunflora to melt the snow rather than attack Vanillish and Vanilluxe, and later by using Gogoat's attacks to immobilize Team Rocket's machine rather than trying to immediately destroy it.

Ramos had a Gym battle against Ash in The Green, Green Grass Types of Home! and lost. He reappeared in Under the Pledging Tree!, where he told Ash and his friends about the festival that was taking place.

Ramos appeared in a fantasy in A League of His Own!, when Ash was talking to Everett about the Gym Leaders that he had defeated in Kalos, in order for him to be able to compete in the Lumiose Conference.

In A Towering Takeover!, Ramos was seen in his Gym, watching Lysandre's broadcast from Lumiose City. In Rocking Kalos Defenses! and Forming a More Perfect Union!, Ramos and Gogoat were among those who helped destroy the Giant Rock.

Ramos reappeared in a flashback in Till We Compete Again!.

Ramos's Gogoat
Ramos has a Gogoat as his main Pokémon. It was first seen with its Trainer when Ramos met Ash and his friends arrived after Clemont accidentally destroyed Ramos's gate. Later it was seen in the city when the snowstorm began. It used Vine Whip to rescue Ash after he was trying to calm down an angry Vanillish and Vanilluxe who caused the snowstorm, whom attacked him. After they and a Vanillite were captured by Team Rocket's mecha. It used its powerful attacks to defeat the mecha, along with Luxio, Fennekin, Pikachu, and Frogadier.

Gogoat was also the last Pokémon Ramos used during Ash's Coumarine Gym battle, sending it out to face Ash's Frogadier. During the battle, Gogoat demonstrated its strong Grass-type attacks, which were almost enough to defeat Frogadier, until Ash recalled a lesson Ramos had taught him about gardening, and used it to come up with a winning strategy, allowing Frogadier to eventually defeat Gogoat with a Water Pulse.

It appeared again in Under the Pledging Tree!, where Ramos was once again seen riding it.

It appeared once again in Rocking Kalos Defenses! and Forming a More Perfect Union!, where it helped destroy the Giant Rock.

Ramos in Pokémon Adventures

Ramos makes his debut in the X & Y chapter. He is first mentioned by Grant as having not yet arrived to a meeting between the Kalos Gym Leaders about what to do with Team Flare. Once he arrives and the meeting has finished, Ramos and the other Gym Leaders meet up with Y's group. They travel by sea on Wulfric's Avalugg to Geosenge Town, where Team Flare's base is located. Upon arriving, they find the ultimate weapon in the process of being activated. When Y leaps in to keep the weapon's petals from opening, the Gym Leaders assist her by also using their strength and their Pokémon to keep the weapon closed.

Despite their best efforts, the Gym Leaders are unable to prevent the ultimate weapon from blooming and firing on the Kalos region. The attack hits many areas and damages several buildings, but the heroes' efforts weaken the weapon's power and prevent any lives from being taken. The Gym Leaders and Y are also protected from the attack thanks to Olympia and Valerie's Pokémon surrounding them in barriers.

Later, Ramos meets with X and his friends at the Lost Hotel. Ramos reveals that the Kalos Gym Leaders are helping rebuild the buildings that were destroyed by the ultimate weapon's blast. Due to Team Flare's influence over the media, the Gym Leaders and X's group are blamed for the incident.

Sometime later, Team Flare attempts to reactivate the plan to use the ultimate weapon by extracting life energy from wild Pokémon captured at the Pokémon Village. The plan is interrupted by the arrival of Viola, Clemont, Alexa, Bonnie, and Yvette, who lead a charge to free the captured Pokémon. When Chalmers attempts to call for backup, he finds that Ramos and the other Gym Leaders have defeated the other members of Team Flare that were stationed at Cyllage City. After Team Flare is fully defeated, Ramos and his allies meet with X and his friends at Lumiose City to congratulate them on their victory.

Ramos claims to have 50 years of gardening experience. He has also read a Pokémon battling encyclopedia and thus manages a brief conversation with an enemy, Team Flare scientist Bryony, when she mentions the page numbers documenting Mr. Mime's air-solidifying tactic.
