First challenge

  • Before battle
"The name's Ryuki. I'm what you might call a star. I mean, with partners like my Pokémon, how could I not be a star? I came all the way across the sea here to Alola to spread my fame out here, too! The whole world will be mine soon!"
  • Upon being defeated
"I'm gonna belt out everything inside of me! I've gotta encourage my Pokémon to keep rocking!"
  • After being defeated
"Everyone's got their own problems, huh? The critics loved my songs, but nobody was buying my music for a while, man. But I'm just a rocker down to my bones. Nothing else to do but keep on rocking. I dig you, Champ. Looks like you know who you are, too, right down to your bones."

Subsequent challenge

  • Before battle
"My babies here are dying to play a set. I figure what better stage than the Champion's! Allow me to introduce my bandmates! Come on, babies!"
  • Upon being defeated
"I'm gonna belt out everything inside of me! I've gotta encourage my Pokémon to keep rocking!"
  • After being defeated
"But passing through the fire makes me stronger, and that's why I'm a star! I'll roll into town again sometime, Champ. I'm always looking for a good gig."
