  • Before battle
"... ... ... No, I simply can't say."
"You there! Young man/lady! I have a question I must pose to you. Do you think Pokémon battling can ever be worthy of being called an art?"
Yes: "... ... ... Indeed. You see, cooking is the type of art that disappears as soon as it is completed. Pokémon battles are the same. Even memories of sweet victory soon fade after the battle ends. To devote yourself entirely to such a life, made up of fleeting experiences--that is truly artful."
No: "Fool! You silly, unseeing child! If all you seek in life is to fill your stomach with some tasteless matter, then why are there Chefs in this world?! We labor tirelessly to make something wonderful that will disappear from sight as soon as it is enjoyed. That is the life of a Chef! That is the life of a Trainer!"
  • Upon being defeated
"I shall store my memory of you and your Pokémon forever away within my heart."
  • After being defeated
"Devote yourself entirely, so even that which will fade and disappear is ingrained forever upon your heart and mind! That is the only fate for any human."
If battled first: "There are no weak Pokémon in a Pokémon battle. There are only weak Trainers. Find the good in every one of your Pokémon. Draw out the unique strengths they possess. Now step back into that elevator and return to the room from which you came."
If battled second: "It is the duty of both Trainers and Chefs to find the good in any raw materials they have to work with. There lies the answer to reaching ever higher. Battle the last two of us and find it for yourself."
If battled third: "There is only one course remaining in your Pokémon League banquet. Devour it with the hunger for strength. Savor it without leaving a scrap behind."
If battled last: "You have drawn forth the strength of Pokémon with your own particular style and method. And now you can challenge the Champion."
Battle Chateau
  • Before battle
"... ... ... Yes, I see it now. This is a path with no end. To seek to be the absolute best is an absurd goal. Yet, as long as I am alive, I shall strive onward to seek the ultimate cuisine... and the strongest opponents in battle!"
  • Upon being defeated
"I shall store my memory of you and your Pokémon forever away within my heart."
  • After being defeated
If giving the player an item: "Take this gift with you on your way. And strive always to find the meaning in everything that happens to you."
"No! This result will not satisfy my hunger--my aching thirst for victory! However, when I look at it from a different perspective, I must admit that your way of living is fantastic..."
  • If the player is defeated
"Our Pokémon battle was like food for my soul. It shall keep me going. That is how I will pay my respects to you for giving your all in battle!"

In the anime

Siebold in the anime

Siebold is a member of Kalos Elite Four, and also operates a luxury restaurant where he is the head chef.

He appeared in Mega Evolution Special I. Alain paid a visit to Siebold's restaurant, hoping to battle him. Siebold soon noticed his Mega Ring, and promptly escorted Alain to his private battlefield for the match. Alain immediately Mega Evolved his Charizard, while Siebold saved his own Mega Evolution for a bit later. His Blastoise was shown to be very well trained, being able to withstand an attack from Alain's Mega Charizard X even when not Mega Evolved itself. Per Alain's request, he then Mega Evolved his Blastoise into Mega Blastoise. Even though Charizard battled hard, it was finally unable to defeat an Elite Four level Mega Evolution, being defeated with a super effective, Mega Launcher-powered Dragon Pulse. However, Siebold was impressed by Alain's battle performance, especially in the face of a type disadvantage.

In the main series, he appeared during a flashback in Coming Apart at the Dreams!.


Siebold is bold and distinguished. He rarely accepts battle requests, though will make special accommodations for particularly strong Trainers like Alain. He bided his time in battle before unleashing his full-force power against Alain's Charizard.

Siebold in Pokémon Adventures

Siebold debuts in the X & Y chapter. He is first mentioned by Diantha as she talked to Korrina about each of the Kalos Elite Four. He is first seen in person at the Lost Hotel, cooking a meal for X and his friends. Although his passion for cooking frightens the children somewhat, Ramos explains that Siebold is making the meal as a way of apologizing for his lack of participation against Team Flare.

Later, Siebold, along with Drasna and Wikstrom, assists X's group in their quest to stop Team Flare. As X's group prepared to find where Team Flare had gone into hiding, Siebold provides them with lunch to eat on their journey. Afterward, Siebold battles members of Team Flare at Route 19.

After Team Flare is fully defeated, Siebold, the remaining Elite Four members, and Diantha carry the unconscious body of Malva, who had turned out to be a member of Team Flare.
