- "Excuse me! Let me guess, from the way you're dressed, are you a Pokémon Trainer? ... ... ... ... ... ... Well, maybe not. Your clothes aren't all that dirty. You're either a rookie Trainer, or maybe you're just an ordinary kid. I'm roaming the land in search of talented Trainers. I'm sorry to have taken your time."
Pokémon Trainers' School
- "Hello? Didn't we meet before? I think back in Petalburg City. Let me introduce myself. My name's Scott. I've been traveling everywhere in search of outstanding Trainers. More specifically, I'm looking for Pokémon battle experts. So, what brings you to this School? Are you a Trainer, too? The first thing you should do is to have a Pokémon learn the move Cut. If I remember correctly, someone in this town has Cut."
- "Hmm... The talent levels of the students here are unknown. The potential's there."
- "Huh? I'm sure I met you somewhere before. Have I introduced myself to you? If not, my name's Scott. I just saw Team Aqua run away from here like they were stung. Let me guess—you drove them away?"
- "Hmm... Maybe, just maybe, this Trainer..."
- "All right! I think you're going to become a good friend. So, let's register each other in our PokéNavs."
- "What I'd like to do is tag along with you, but I do want to keep an eye on the talents of other people, too. So, I'll be off to roam other towns a bit more. Be seeing you, <player>!"
- "Oh, hey! If it isn't <player>! <Player>, let me guess—you're going to take the Battle Tent challenge? Yeah! That's a good idea! That's a really great idea! After all, a tough Trainer is the perfect fit for the Battle Tent! Give it your best effort!"
- "Hehe... I was watching that match! You're friends with that boy Wally, aren't you? But you didn't hold anything back and beat him impressively. Yeah! That's what a real Pokémon battle is all about! I idolize Trainers like that! I'll be cheering for you!"
Verdanturf Battle Tent
- "Hey there, <player>! I thought I might see you here. A Battle Tent's a place where you can meet tough Trainers. It doesn't matter what the rules are, or how battles are waged, either. <Player>, I expect you to do the best you can!"
- "I visit here regularly in hopes of seeing tough Trainers in action in whatever the situation."
Fallarbor Battle Tent
- "Hi, <player>! So you came out to this Battle Tent! The people in these parts tend to be easygoing and laid-back. But, you see, what I'm looking for are people with... How should I say this? Someone bursting with the desire and the drive to win. If there were a Trainer like that, I'd immediately... Whoops! Never mind! Keep working at it!"
- "Instead of wasting your time with the likes of me, why not make a challenge?"
- "Hahahah! Way to go, <player>! I just passed by a Trainer riding a Bike. You just beat that Trainer, didn't you? It was pretty obvious that you did. The kid looked really upset with a face all red from anger. I sure seem to run into you often. Are you off to Fortree Gym next? I expect that you'll do well at the Gym. Well, I'll be seeing you!"
- "Hiya, <player>, it's me! Just as I thought, you won at the Fortree Gym. Your strength... Perhaps you really are the Trainer that I've been searching for. Remember, you have a fan in me. I'll be cheering from the sidelines. Keep up the great work!"
- "... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... Zzz... ... ... ... ... ... Huh?! Oh, sorry, sorry! I was snoozing! I came to check out this Pokémon Contest thing. I have to admit, it does look quite entertaining, but... Consider me a purist—I prefer battles and tough Trainers. But that's just me. <Player>, I hope you'll enjoy everything like the Gyms, Contests, Battle Tent, the whole works!"
- "I think it does take strategy to win a Contest. Devising Contest strategies is one way of becoming a better Trainer, I'd say."
- "<Player>, feeling good? I'm doing great! I'd heard Mossdeep's Gym Leader is pretty strong, so I decided to come take a look-see for myself. But there's something wrong about this town. People are going on about a warning letter and the Space Center... I don't think it concerns me in any way, though."
Ever Grande City
- "<Player>, you've clawed your way up to face the Pokémon League! I'm happy for you! You made my cheering worthwile! <Player>, if you were to become the Pokémon League Champion... I'll get in touch with you then. Okay, <player>. Go for greatness!"
- "Hi, hi, <player>! It's me, Scott. I'm aboard the S.S. Tidal now. It feels great to be on the sea! By the way... There's this place that I'd like to invite you to for a visit. If you're interested, board a ferry at either Slateport or Lilycove. I'll fill you in on the details when we meet. I'll be waiting!"
- "Well, hi, hi! <Player>, <player>! Something's come up, so I have to disembark, but I am glad to see you! Congratulations, League Champion! There's a place I'd like to invite someone like you. It's the... Battle Frontier! What's the place like? You'll understand when you see it! I've spoken with the ship's Captain about this. The next time you take a ferry, you should be able to sail to the Battle Frontier. Okay, <player>, I'll be waiting for you at the Battle Frontier!"
- "Well, if it isn't <player>! You came out here!"
- "It's great to see you here, it really is! I hope you'll take your time and explore everywhere. Naturally, I hope you'll also experience the pure essence of battling. I also have my quarters here, so feel free to visit if you have time."
- "Well, hello and welcome! Heheh... Sorry about the cramped space. Anyway, <player>, let me formally welcome you to the Battle Frontier. This is my dream come true. It took me years and years, but I've finally given shape to my dream. On reflection, it was a terribly long journey... I left home alone on a quest to find strong Trainers. No one can imagine how much effort or time it took to make this real. But that's all in the past. No point dwelling on that! All I want for you is to enjoy battling to your heart's content here. <player>, I want you to have this as a memento for all the time our paths crossed on our journeys. "
- "You can check your Battle Points on your Frontier Pass. The more success you have here at the Battle Frontier, the more Battle Points you will collect. Use your Battle Points the way you see fit, like trading them for items. "
- "I'm expecting great things from you!"
- "You don't just train for battle, right? I think I remember you working on a Pokédex as well. Well, guess what? You may run into wild Pokémon in the Battle Frontier somewhere... Fufufu!"
- "Have you met any of the Frontier Brains? Better yet, have you obtained any symbols from them? I handpicked the Frontier Brains as the toughest Trainers anywhere. But I'm sure that seeing how tough you are will startle even them!"
- "Every Trainer is an individual. They all lead lives of their own. But when they're in a battle, it doesn't matter who they are. They're all the same! I love the purity of battle, where everyone is equal. That's why I go everywhere seeking Trainers who are serious about battling, and invite them here."
- After winning 50 battles in a row at the Battle Tower
- "Oh, I heard about you! How you ruled the Battle Tower! You beat over 50 Trainers in a row? That's fantastic! I want you to have this!"
- "I'll be expecting to hear even greater things about you now!"
- After winning 100 battles in a row at the Battle Tower
- "Oh, my! I heard about you! How you overwhelmed the Battle Tower! You beat over 100 Trainers in a row? That's ridiculously spectacular! You've got to have this!"
- "I'll be expecting to hear even greater things about you now!"
- After obtaining all Silver Symbols
- "Are you enjoying things in the Battle Frontier? ...Wait a second... Oh! Your Frontier Pass! You've collected the full set of silver symbols! That's more than impressive! You are tough, just as I suspected! Normally, I wouldn't do something like this, but this is a special time! I want you to have this. I'm sure you can put it to proper use."
- "I must say I have the gift of knowing a good Trainer when I see one. I'm so glad I had the foresight to bring you here!"
- After collecting all Gold Symbols
- "I hope you're enjoying everything in the Battle Frontier. ...Wait a second... Oh, my disbelieving eyes! Your Frontier Pass! You've gathered up the full set of gold symbols! That's more than stupendous! You're incredible, just as I suspected! ... ... ... ... ... ... <Player>, you've got to accept this! I think you will be able to appreciate the value of my gift!"
- "I must say I have the gift of knowing a good Trainer when I see one. I'm so glad I had the foresight to bring you here!"
In the anime
In the Pokémon anime, Scott made his debut appearance in The Scheme Team. When he spotted Ash just outside the Viridian Gym, he approached him and asked if he was looking for a Gym battle. After Ash revealed he had already earned the Earth Badge, Scott said Ash might be qualified to take on the Battle Frontier challenge. He was about to explain the Battle Frontier to Ash when the two heard Agatha falling off her bicycle. After helping her, the three entered the Gym, where Agatha asked if Scott had encountered any talented Trainers on Seafoam Islands. Scott said that information is classified and then suggested Ash to battle Agatha. He served as the referee for the match and, after Ash was defeated, he asked if he was still interested in the Battle Frontier.
After hearing a positive response from Ash, Scott informed him that the Battle Frontier consists of seven different battle facilities spread out through the Kanto region and that each one of them has its own Frontier Brain. He then explained that Trainers are given the location of six facilities, and only after they have defeated all six of their Frontier Brains and earned their respective Frontier Symbols are they given the location of the final facility. This peaked Ash's interest and he agreed to participate. Before taking the road again to scout new Trainers, Scott said the people over at the Battle Frontier would contact Ash to give him more details.
Scott made another appearance in Numero Uno Articuno to observe Ash's battle against Factory Head Noland. Since then, Scott has appeared at every Battle Frontier facility to watch Ash facing off against the resident Frontier Brain together with his friends.
Scott reappeared in Channeling the Battle Zone!, in which he was shown with Ash, Max, and Brock in the audience of the Kanto Grand Festival, watching the battle between May and Solidad in the semifinals. As he does during Ash's battles, Scott analyzed the strategies the two Coordinators were using. He said that May was having trouble because she allowed Solidad to set the pace of their battle. He further explained that Solidad was leading May to make a move, only to dodge her attacks in an elegant way while lowering her points in the process. He concluded it is a typical strategy in Contest Battles and that May's battle style is very similar to Ash's.
In Pace - The Final Frontier!, after Ash had obtained the Brave Symbol for defeating Pyramid King Brandon, Scott offered Ash the position of a Frontier Brain. However, Ash declined the offer saying he wanted to continue his journey. Scott let him know that if he changed his mind, the offer would always be open to him.
He has a brief cameo in Spurt!, his face superimposed on an Ace of Spades.
Scott is a battle enthusiast and an agent who scouts skilled Pokémon Trainers for the Battle Frontier. Aside from his passion for regular Pokémon battles, he was shown to have an understanding of Contest Battles as well. He likes to analyze strategies and he is able to outline the profile of a Trainer in terms of battle style and preferred techniques by seeing how they behave during battles.
Scott is also known for reckless driving, regardless of what kind of terrain he is on. In Pinch Healing!, he was seen fixing a bus, indicating that he has skills as an auto mechanic.
In Gathering the Gang of Four!, it was revealed to Ash and his friends that Scott is the owner of the Battle Frontier. According to him, the Battle Frontier facilities were created in order to expand the art of Pokémon battle.

Scott in Pokémon Adventures
Scott debuts in the Ruby & Sapphire chapter. He is the Owner of the Hoenn Battle Frontier, and is known for his skills in scouting talented Trainers and gathering information. Scott is first seen sneaking into the Pokémon Association headquarters during the Groudon and Kyogre incident. Later, Scott calls Norman to inform him that his son, Ruby, and Professor Birch's daughter, Sapphire are heavily involved in battling against Groudon and Kyogre. As he leaves the headquarters, Scott warns Norman to awaken Rayquaza in order to help Ruby and Sapphire stop Groudon and Kyogre.
In the Emerald chapter, Scott is seen leading the reconstruction of the Hoenn Battle Tower into the Battle Frontier. After talking to Brandon about his successful capture of Regirock, Registeel, and Regice, Scott gets a call from Professor Oak.
Two months later, Scott watches the Battle Frontier's opening ceremony along with the Frontier Brains. The ceremony is interrupted by Emerald, who announces that he wishes to conquer the Battle Frontier. The press mistakenly report the incident as allowing an ordinary Trainer to take part in the Battle Frontier before it officially opens a week later. Scott and the Frontier Brains decide to use this assumption as free publicity and allow Emerald to challenge the Battle Frontier under the condition that he completes it before it officially opens.
Scott watches Emerald's challenge of the Battle Factory with the hopes that he will fail. To everyone's surprise, Emerald manages to win the Knowledge Symbol. Later, while Emerald is challenging the Battle Pyramid, Noland is attacked by an unknown assailant and several rental Pokémon are stolen. After Noland is taken to a hospital, the Frontier Brains begin to suspect Emerald as the culprit. They head to the Battle Pyramid to confront Emerald and find him after having defeated Brandon. When they ask him about what happened, Emerald reveals that he did not attack Noland and is actually after the Mythical Pokémon Jirachi. The Frontier Brains find Emerald's explanation suspicious, but decide to follow him into Artisan Cave, where Jirachi is currently located at. There, they not only find Jirachi, but Guile Hideout, the man who attacked Jirachi. The Frontier Brains and Emerald face Guile, but Jirachi escapes during the struggle, forcing Guile to escape and continue his pursuit.
Injured from the battle, everyone decides to return to the Battle Arena, where Scott and press had gathered in anticipation for Emerald's next match. As Greta battles Emerald, Anabel confronts Scott and claims that he knew about Guile the entire time. Scott confirms her suspicions and reveals he was aware of Guile's presence, Jirachi, and even Emerald from the start. Scott reveals that two months prior, he was called by Professor Oak who informed him that the Battle Frontier would be where Jirachi would awaken and that he intends on capturing it to make a wish. When asked to postpone the Frontier's opening ceremony due to Guile's presence, Scott refused and stated his Frontier Brains would stop the villain. Scott states that he withheld the information from the Frontier Brains to help them get stronger as they still would have lost even if they had known of Guile beforehand.
The next day, Scott watches the tournament being held at the Battle Dome,where Emerald challenges to obtain his fifth Symbol. As Emerald battles Tucker in the finals, Scott asks Anabel to talk with him somewhere else. This Scott is revealed to be a disguised Guile, who puts Anabel under mind control. After this, Guile returns to the Battle Dome, where he manages to find and capture Jirachi. Guile uses the rental Pokémon to attack innocent bystanders and heads to the Battle Tower to make his wish. Emerald, Noland, Ruby, and Sapphire all head to the Battle Tower to stop Guile. As they travel, Noland calls the real Scott, who informs Noland that he was never at the Battle Dome to begin with.
Guile wishes on Jirachi to create a gigantic Kyogre made of seawater and uses it to flood the entire Battle Frontier. During the battle, Emerald, Ruby, and Sapphire are assisted by their fellow Pokédex holders to battle Guile and his army of rental Pokémon. Scott later assists in helping Emerald break the rental Pokémon from Guile's control. Eventually, Emerald and the Pokédex holders manage to defeat Guile and destroy the gigantic Kyogre monster. The day after, everyone gathers around to congratulate Emerald for the hard work he put into saving everyone. When Red jokingly suggests that the Pokédex holders have a tournament in the Battle Dome, Scott bursts in the room to suggest making that idea a reality. He then reveals he used Jirachi's final wish to have a large group of people from various regions come to visit the Battle Frontier.
