In the core series

Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire

Granite Cave
"That device you have there… It's a PokéNav. When Trainers that have PokéNavs battle, it keeps a record of how things went, I think. Oh, pardon me. My name is Steven. I'm interested in rare stones, so I travel here and there. Oh? A Letter for me?"
"Okay, thank you. You went through all this trouble to deliver that. I need to thank you. Let me see… I'll give you this TM. It contains my favorite move, Steel Wing."
"Your Pokémon appear quite capable. If you keep training, you could even become the Champion of the Pokémon League one day. That's what I think. Now, I've got to hurry along."
Route 118
"Hi! You're that Trainer I met in Dewford! … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … … Oh, okay, you're <player>. I'll remember it. <player>. In this vast world, there are many kinds of Pokémon. They come in many types. Do you raise different types? Or do you raise only Pokémon of a certain type? What do you think as a Trainer? Sorry, it's not my place to ask, is it? Well, anyway, I hope to see you again."
Route 120
"Hm? <player>, hi. It's been a while. There's something here that you can't see, right? Now, if I were to use this device on the invisible obstacle… No, no. Rather than describing it, I should just show you. That would be more fun. <player>, are your Pokémon ready for battle?"
No: "No? I'll wait here, so you can get ready."
Yes: "<player>, show me your true power as a Trainer!"
"I see… Your battle style is intriguing. Your Pokémon have obviously grown since I first met you in Dewford. I'd like you to have this Devon Scope. Who knows, there may be other concealed Pokémon. <player>. I enjoy seeing Pokémon and Trainers who strive together. I think you're doing great. Well, let's meet again somewhere."
Route 128
"<player>! What is happening? This is terrible… If this doesn't stop, all of Hoenn… No, the whole world will be parched. The cause of this calamity, the blazing sun, is in the sky above Sootopolis…"R
"<player>! What is happening? This is terrible… If this doesn't stop, all of Hoenn… No, the whole world will drown. This huge rain cloud is spreading from above Sootopolis?"S
"What in the world is taking place there? There's no point arguing here… Sootopolis should provide answers… <player>… I don't know what you intend to do, but don't do anything reckless. Okay. I'm going to Sootopolis."
Sootopolis City
"<player>, you came, too? Under this scorching sunR/In this terrible rainstormS, yet… Oh, yes, can you hear out what my friend has to say?"
"This sunlight… People and Pokémon need sunlight to live… But why does this sunlight fill us with so much dread? The blazing sun over Sootopolis is intensifying… Soon, all of Hoenn will be under its withering glare… If that were to happen…"R
"This rain… People and Pokémon need water to live… But why does this rain fill us with so much dread? The rain clouds over Sootopolis will keep building and soon extend all over Hoenn… If that were to happen…"S
"<player>, I never expected you to be holding the Red OrbR/Blue OrbS. You'll be okay. With your Pokémon, you'll get things done no matter what. I'm convinced of it!"
  • If spoken to again
"You'll be okay. With your Pokémon, you'll get things done whatever happens. I'm convinced of it!"
"<player>, we owe it all to you. The sky above Sootopolis has returned to normal. For that, Wallace sends his thanks, too. And, that same Wallace is waiting for you inside. He's strong. But the way you are now, you should be on equal footing with him. Give it your best shot."
Ever Grande City
  • Before battle
"Welcome, <player>. I was looking forward to seeing you here one day. You… What did you see on your journey with Pokémon? What did you feel, meeting so many other Trainers like you? What has awoken in you? I want you to hit me with it all! Now, bring it!"
  • Being defeated
"I, the Champion, fall in defeat… Kudos to you, <player>! You are a truly noble Pokémon Trainer!"
  • After being defeated
"Congratulations! The feelings you have for your Pokémon… And the Pokémon that responded to those feelings with all their might… They came together as one, and created an even greater power. And thus, you were able to grasp victory today! You are rightfully the Hoenn region's new…"
"<player>… No, the new Champion! Come with me."
(to Brendan/May) "I'm sorry, but... From here on, only those Trainers who have become Champions may enter. You'll have to wait outside with the Professor."
"This room… This is where we keep records of Pokémon that prevailed through harsh battles. It is here that the League Champions are honored. Come on, let's record your name as a Trainer who triumphed over the Pokémon League, and the names of the partners who battled with you."
Steven's house
  • Note left on Steven's desk, after the player has entered the Hall of Fame
"… … … … … …" "To <player>… I've decided to do a little soul-searching and train on the road. I don't plan to return home for some time. I have a favor to ask of you. I want you to take the Poké Ball on the desk. Inside it is a Beldum, my favorite Pokémon. I'm counting on you. May our paths cross again someday."

Pokémon Emerald

Granite Cave
"My name is Steven. I'm interested in rare stones, so I travel here and there. Oh? A Letter for me?"
"Okay, thank you. You went through all this trouble to deliver that. I need to thank you. Let me see… I'll give you this TM. It contains my favorite move, Steel Wing."
"Your Pokémon appear quite capable. If you keep training, you could even become the Champion of the Pokémon League one day. That's what I think. I know, since we've gotten to know each other, let's register one another in our PokéNavs. … … … … … … Now, I've got to hurry along."
Route 118
"Hi, <player>! It's me, Steven! We met in the cave near Dewford. Have you met many kinds of Pokémon since I last saw you? There are many, many kinds of Pokémon in this wide world of ours. If you wanted to raise only your favorites, that's fine. Perhaps you find it more fun to raise all sorts of Pokémon. As a Trainer of Pokémon, what do you think? Of course, it's not any of my business. It would be nice if we were to meet again somewhere."
Route 120
"Hm? <player>, hi. It's been a while. There's something here that you can't see, right? Now, if I were to use this device on the invisible obstacle… No, no. Rather than describing it, I should just show you. That would be more fun. <player>, are your Pokémon ready for battle?"
No: "No? I'll wait here, so you can get ready."
Yes: "<player>, show me your true power as a Trainer!"
"I see… Your battle style is intriguing. Your Pokémon have obviously grown since I first met you in Dewford. I'd like you to have this Devon Scope. Who knows, there may be other concealed Pokémon."
"<player>. I enjoy seeing Pokémon and Trainers who strive together. I think you're doing great. Well, let's meet again somewhere."
Mossdeep Space Center
"<player>, have you read that proclamation already? Team Magma is coming after the rocket fuel on this island. I don't know what they'd need it for, but they can't be allowed to take it. I'll keep an eye on things for a while longer. In the meantime, why don't you go check out the town?"
"Team Magma… What's the point of stealing rocket fuel?"
"<player>! You're going to help me? Let's get into battle together! Are you ready?"
No:"Then, hurry! Get ready quickly!"
  • After battle
Whew, that was too tense. <player>, thank you. I have something to give you as thanks for your support. Please come see me at home after this. Oh yes, I don't live in Rustboro City. I live right here on this island."
Steven's house
  • After battling Team Magma in the Mossdeep Space Center
"<player>… As you can see, there's not much here, but this is my home. Thank you for all that you've done. This is my token of appreciation. It's the Hidden Machine Dive. No need to be shy--you've earned this HM."
"While you're using Surf, you should notice dark patches of water. Use Dive if you come to deep water like it. You'll drop to the seafloor. When you want to come back up, use Dive again. In some places, it won't be possible for you to surface, though."
  • If talked to again
"Apparently, there's an underwater cavern between Mossdeep and Sootopolis. You know, the one that Capt. Stern found in his submarine."
  • Note left on Steven's desk, after the player has entered the Hall of Fame
"... ... ... ... ... ..." "To <player>... I've decided to do a little soul-searching and train on the road. I don't plan to return home for some time. I have a favor to ask of you. I want you to take the Poké Ball on the desk. Inside it is a Beldum, my favorite Pokémon. I'm counting on you. May our paths cross again someday."

Route 128
"<player>! What is happening? This is terrible… After the scorching heat wave ended, this deluge began. If this doesn't stop, all of Hoenn… No, the whole world will drown. This huge rain cloud is spreading from above Sootopolis… What in the world is taking place there? There's no point arguing here… Sootopolis might provide answers… <player>… I don't know what you intend to do, but don't do anything reckless. Okay. I'm going to Sootopolis."
Sootopolis City
"Those Pokémon fighting… Groudon… And Kyogre… The two super-ancient Pokémon were awakened from a long sleep… And now they are smashing each other with their uncontrollable energy… …<player>. You being here now I'll take to mean that you're prepared to become involved in this crisis. Well, then, there's someone that I'd like you to meet. Come with me, please."
"Listen, <player>. Does seeing Groudon and Kyogre make you think Pokémon are to be feared? But that's not true. Pokémon are really more… …Why am I asking you this? You already know."
"Okay, here we are! Inside you'll find someone named Wallace. I think you have what's needed to help him…"
  • If talked to again
"I think you have what's needed to help him…"
  • After talking with Wallace
"The Sky Pillar… I've never been there. I wonder where it could be?"
  • After the crisis is solved
"So that's Rayquaza… It's incredible how the two rampaging Pokémon would flee from it in fear…"
  • After the crisis is solved and the player has talked to both Archie and Maxie
"It looks like both Maxie and Archie have gone away somewhere. Perhaps they've gone to Mt. Pyre to return those Orbs…"
Meteor Falls
  • Before battle
"Oh, wow, <player>. I'm amazed you knew where to find me. Do you, uh...maybe think of me as just a rock maniac? No, that can't be right. We battled alongside each other at the Sootopolis Space Center. You should have a very good idea about how good I am. Okay, <player>, if you're going to mount a serious challenge, expect the worst!"
  • Being defeated
"You… I had no idea you'd become so strong…"
  • After being defeated
"Come to think of it, ever since our paths first crossed in Granite Cave in Dewford, I had this feeling. I thought that you would eventually become the Champion. My predictions usually come true. And where will you go from here? … … … … … … … … … … … … Fufufu, even I couldn't tell you that."
Over Match Call
  • After registering him in the Match Call
"Hi, <player>! Have you been to Mauville already? You should visit the bike shop and get a Mach Bike. Then, try exploring the Granite Cave thoroughly. You may make a new discovery there."
"Hi, <player>! I've met a lot of different trainers so far. But you're one of a kind. You're not like anyone else."
"Hi, <player>! When you're on an adventure with your Pokémon, what do you think? Do you consider them to be strong partners? Do you think of them as fun companions? Depending on how you think, your adventure's significance changes."
"Hello? <player>? I'm involved in a spot of trouble at the Space Center. I'm sorry, but I can't talk right now. Bye!"
"Oh! <player>! There's no need to talk. It's past time for talking. You have to believe in yourself and do what's right."
  • After becoming the Champion
"<player>…Congratulations for entering the Hall of Fame. … … … … … … … … … … … … I hope we can meet again somewhere!"

Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

Vermilion City
"Hi! My name is Steven. The Champion from the Hoenn region. Have we met...before? That's not possible. All the Trainers I have battled seem to have the same look, anyway. Especially the ones who gave me tough battles... By the way, have you heard of a Pokémon called LatiasHG/LatiosSS? I am investigating why LatiasHG/LatiosSS, a Pokémon from Hoenn, decided to leave Hoenn to come here. LatiasHG/LatiosSS is a Pokémon that has a lot to do with Soul Dew, a gemlike Orb. Considering the fact that LatiasHG/LatiosSS is now in Kanto, it is possible to assume that this has to do with Soul Dew. LatiasHG/LatiosSS is a Pokémon that travels a great distance. It'd be difficult to find without any machine to track it with. But any Trainer will be drawn to it, won't they? I must go. May our journeys cross again."
Silph Co.
  • After defeating Red
(talking on his phone) "Hello... You're breaking up... I think it depends on how my dad feels... I see... I'll be on my way. See you soon."
(to player) "You are... I remember your eyes. When I see a Trainer whose eyes twinkle, I always remember."
"You have a Pokédex! So you are also in search of Pokémon. Let me see... I think I can help you with that. Let's say that you have stones in front of you. Which color would you pick?"
"You chose correctly! I will give you Treecko/Torchic/Mudkip!"
If nothing is chosen
"You seem to be quite cautious. Are you avoiding any chance when a person might trick you? You really are better than I thought."
If party is full
"I see... For the choice you've made, I'd like to give you this Pokémon. Except your party is full. Why don't you go to the PC to make some room? I'll be waiting here."
(If the player nicknames the starter)"You did a great job naming it!"
"Take good care of it. Your caring for it will make me very happy."
  • Trading Pokémon
"We meet again! Have you been to Hoenn before? It's such a beautiful place, with the clearest ocean you can imagine. You should visit sometime. Hey! Why don't we trade Pokémon? I've been looking for Forretress. I can trade my Beldum for it."
No: "That's too bad."
"Will you trade Forretress for my Beldum?"
Yes: "OK, let's trade!"
(if a Pokémon other than Forretress is chosen) "Are you telling me that you think that's a Forretress?"
(if the Forretress traded has max friendship) "This Pokémon seems to like you a lot. Do you happen to like Steel-type Pokémon? I had a feeling. That particular texture! The cool and glowing bodies! Such uniquenesses are only for Steel-type Pokémon! When it comes to the solitariness and nobleness you sense through the rugged body, which is almost rebuffing when you hug, nothing comes close to Beldum, I must say... In short, my Metagross is truly strong and cool! ... Oh, it seems that I got carried away. It was a pleasure talking to you. Bye!"
(if the Forretress traded does not have max friendship) "You don't see Forretress in the Hoenn region. It's my first time to actually see one. Thank you so much! Oh, look at the time. I really must go."
Pewter Museum of Science
".................."
"All those shining stars at night are the stones I'll never get to know..."
"People who dedicate themselves to what they believe stand out in a crowd. But, my passion is no less than yours."
"Wow! The thing you have..."
"This stone is...so mysterious! Something seems to be shining inside... The stone is modest...yet hiding something wonderful! You should have it studied by experts."
"Soul Dew is said to be the solidified spirits of Latias and Latios. It has the power to bring out the true potential of Latias and Latios. The spirits of these Pokémon and Soul Dew are said to call out to each other... The only thing that puzzles me is the place Soul Dew was found. Why Kanto?"
Pewter City (during Enigma Stone event)
"It seems that LatiosHG/LatiasSS became attracted to it in no time!"
"I can feel that LatiosHG/LatiasSS is full of fighting spirit! I would love to challenge it, but I will let you go for it!"
"Impressive! It was a great battle! I don't think you had to give everything you've got, and that scares me..."
"I've been away from the Hoenn Pokémon League for too long. I'll have to excuse myself. .................. Oh, I never got your name. ...But I won't ask for it this time. Our fun will have to wait for the right time."

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

  • Before battle (second round)

  • In the lobby, after the tournament
"Hmm. Emerald can be mined in Driftveil City?!"

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire Special Demo Version

First adventure

Mossdeep City
"We've made it. Thank you, Latios/Latias. You've helped immensely!"
"This is Mossdeep City. It is a town where scientists work day and night on the research, aiming to reach the great expanse of space."
"I've received a message from a professor I know, asking if we could come and help him. It seems that some rather bad people have been trying to steal his research results for themselves. We should hurry to the Space Center at once. Come with me, Orlando!"
"This is the Space Center. The professor should be wi—"
(Team Aqua/Magma exit the building and challenge Orlando and Steven.)
"Hmm. Well, if you put it that way, then it looks as though we have little choice. We will have to battle our way through this. Orlando. Would you lend me your strength? I want you to battle alongside me and my Pokémon. If you agree, then choose from these three Poké Balls. Select the Pokémon you want at your side in battle!"
  • After defeating Team Aqua or Team Magma outside the Mossdeep Space Center, who declare they're heading to an island
"What island...?"
(The professor exits the building and thanks Steven.)
"No need to thank me. And I was not alone. This is Orlando. He helped me battle those thugs. Together, we sent them running."
(The professor is worried Team Aqua/Magma is trying to capture a Pokémon that can Mega Evolve.)
"I see... That is not something we can ignore. Orlando, I have a favor to ask. Please come with me. Come and help me protect that Pokémon from these thieves!"
"I've gotten the coordinates from the professor, so I know which direction to go. As soon as you feel ready, speak with me."
  • When spoken to
"Looks like you're ready. Shall we go help that Pokémon?"
Let's have an adventure!: "Understood. Then shall we go?"
Hold on a second: "Ah, I see you like to be well prepared before setting out. An admirable quality! When you feel ready to depart, please come and talk to me."
  • If the player fainted at Mirage Cave 8
"Are you all right, Orlando?! We have to get you and your Pokémon healed at once! Show me where you're hurt."
"Try to keep an eye on your Pokémon's health (HP) and condition. If your Pokémon is losing HP and getting weak, use the Super Potion in your Bag. If your Pokémon is afflicted by a status condition, using a Full Heal is the answer."
Mirage Cave (by Fallarbor Town)
"Now then... I expect Team Magma and Team Aqua have beat us here in the search for that Pokémon. Orlando, can I ask you to start by having a look around? I'm sure that those fool teams will be around here somewhere. Ah yes, a word of warning: If you step into the tall grass there, wild Pokémon may attack you. Be sure you are ready for them."
  • If spoken to when the player's Pokémon needs healing
"Hmm... Your Pokémon look a bit tired, Orlando. Allow me to help restore them to health.
  • If spoken to again when the player's Pokémon is healthy, or after he heals it
"Somewhere on this island is a Pokémon capable of Mega Evolution. We simply cannot hand it over to Team Magma or Team Aqua. Orlando, I want you to go farther into the island and begin the search. Once I finish my preparations, I will follow after you at once."
"Orlando! I'm sorry it took me so long, Orlando. And now I see what we have here. So these are some of the bosses of Team Magma and Team Aqua? I admit I am a bit surprised to see them joining forces. It matters little. We will battle together, Orlando. Before we do, though, let me teach your <Pokémon> a little something..."
"And this...is for you."
"The Mega Bracelet that I just gave you is set with a mysterious stone known as a Key Stone. It is a stone with the power to bind you and your Pokémon together. Ah yes. And we should give your <Pokémon> this to hold as well."
"With the Key Stone you hold and the Mega Stone <Pokémon> now holds... The bonds that tie you two together should now allow you to draw forth the great power of Mega Evolution! Don't you feel it's time we tested that power?"
  • After defeating Tabitha and Matt
"Good work, Orlando. That was a perfect Mega Evolution. It held such strength, even though this was your first time using it in battle... I'm practically trembling with excitement at the limitless potential I sense in you! What did you think of my Metagross? Its rugged white body, so cool to the touch... Its beauty grows with Mega Evolution! Yes. I think the day may come when I will be able to entrust this Metagross to you. But now we have scared off the crooks. So shall we go and meet the Pokémon said to be capable of Mega Evolution?"
  • Upon catching up to Steven again
"There you are, Orlando. It seems like the Mega-Evolving Pokémon is in that tall grass there. If you were to face it in battle, it might accept you as well. Here you go. Throw a Poké Ball to try and catch that Pokémon."
  • If spoken to again, or if the battle ended without catching the Pokémon
"In order to catch a Pokémon, you first have to impress it with your skills. When you battle a Pokémon, throw the Poké Ball I gave you. Prove that you have what it takes to get the Pokémon on your team!"
  • If spoken to with no Poké Balls in the Bag
"Hmm? It seems you're out of Poké Balls. Here—have some more."
  • If the player tries to leave
"What's this? Where are you going? An opponent stands before you, waiting to be impressed by your battle skills."
"The Pokémon seems to have accepted you after your performance in battle. Hmm. And it seems to hold a Mega Stone. I wonder what powers might be revealed if it Mega Evolves. You will be able to see it for yourself when you next battle. I envy you, Orlando!"
"Well then... I suppose it's time we return. Back to Mossdeep City!"
Mossdeep City
"Thank you, Orlando. You will find that there are many more Pokémon in the Hoenn region capable of Mega Evolution, including the one that we recently met. And another possible form of Evolution, thought lost since incredibly ancient times, that might even exceed Mega Evolution... Yes, Primal Reversion... Team Magma and Team Aqua may be after that power..."
"This world still holds many more mysteries and surprises than we can imagine. I wonder what you and your team will see, what you will feel, in a world like that. I wonder how you'll grow and change... No words can describe how exciting this will be! I will say good-bye to you for now, Orlando. I will be waiting eagerly for the day when I meet you and your Pokémon again!"

Subsequent adventures

Mossdeep City
  • Beginning of greeting
  • Adventures 2-10
"So you've returned. This is our <number> such meeting, isn't it?"
  • On second adventure
"Ah yes, before I forget... I've set you up with a few more Pokémon, so you can enjoy our little explorations even more. I hope you'll enjoy your time with them, learning about each in turn. If you feel like going on a bit of an adventure with me, say the word. I would be delighted to take you along."
  • On fourth adventure
"I think I will give you these Poké Balls, to celebrate our small reunion."
  • On fifth adventure
"I do have another piece of advice... Did you know that you can only use Mega Evolution once in each battle you face? I suggest you think carefully about which Pokémon to Mega Evolve, and when."
  • On sixth adventure
"I think I will give you these Heal Balls, to celebrate our small reunion."
  • Adventure 11 and later
"So you've returned. I've practically lost count of the number of times we've met here."
  • On eleventh adventure
"I think I will give you these Heart Scales, to celebrate our small reunion."
  • End of greeting
"If you feel like going on a bit of an adventure with me, say the word. I would be delighted to take you along."
  • If spoken to
"What do you want to do, Orlando? Should we head out for an adventure? Or was there something else you wanted?"
Let's have an adventure!:
  • Trainer battle mission (always adventure 2, random 6-9, 11-14, etc)
"I happen to know of some Pokémon Trainers doing special training on a certain island nearby. I'll ask you to take them on in Pokémon battle."
  • Lost person mission (always adventure 3, random 6-9, 11-14, etc)
"I heard that someone has gotten lost on a particular island near here. Orlando, I trust that I can count on your assistance in helping the poor little thing."
  • Island inhabitant mission (always adventure 4, random 6-9, 11-14, etc)
"I'm setting out to search for a Pokémon said to inhabit a certain island nearby. Come along and lend me a hand, Orlando."
  • Expert challenge mission (adventure 5):
"My, my! It seems someone has sent you a challenge. He appears to have recognized your skill as a Trainer and now wishes to ask you for a battle!"
  • Expert challenge mission (adventures 10, 15, etc):
"My, my! Another challenger has appeared, hoping to meet you. It seems this is a new challenger, not the elderly gentleman from last time."
  • Special Team Aqua/Magma mission
"It looks as though running them off once wasn't enough. That foolish team is back and causing more trouble. Orlando, I'll ask for your assitance once more."
  • Special Nugget mission
"There's a rumor that a strange man has been appearing often on a nearby island. These tales give me a bad feeling, so I'd appreciate your company."
Let's go somewhere secret!: "It looks as though running them off once wasn't enough. That foolish team is back and causing more trouble. Orlando, I'll ask for your assitance once more."
Check rewards (if there are none): "Ah, I'm sorry, Orlando... You don't seem to have any rewards yet that you can send off, do you?"
Check rewards (if there are some): "Perhaps I ought to give you a bit of advice about the rewards you can send to your full game."
Glalie/Steelix: "You can send the Glalie/Steelix you caught to your copy of the full game. I expect it will be a great ally— one you can depend on."
Poké Ball set: "You can send the set of 10 Poké Balls that I gave you earlier to your full game."
Heal Ball set: "You can send the set of 10 Heal Balls that I gave you earlier to your full game."
Heart Scale set: "You can send the set of five Heart Scales that I gave you earlier to your full game."
Nugget: "You can send the Nugget that you got from the rather suspicious gentleman to your copy of the full game. Those shiny round Nuggets... You can sell them at Poké Marts, and they'll fetch a pretty price. Hold tight to your Nuggets!"
Send to full game: "You can only use Pokémon Link once a day. Let's get started by having you pick what you'd like to send through Pokémon Link."
  • After sending
"We can do this again tomorrow."
  • Attempting more than one Link a day
"Come back tomorrow, and we'll talk."
Quit playing: "Are you sure you'd like to quit?"
Yes: "I'll look forward to the day we meet again."
Hold on a second: "Ah, I see you like to be well prepared before setting out. An admirable quality! When you feel ready to depart, please come and talk to me."
"Are you all right, Orlando?! We have to get you and your Pokémon healed at once! Show me where you're hurt."
"Try to keep an eye on your Pokémon's health (HP) and condition. If your Pokémon is losing HP and getting weak, use the Super Potion in your Bag. If your Pokémon is afflicted by a status condition, using a Full Heal is the answer."
  • After a successful adventure
"Thank you, Orlando. You've been of great help again today. I suppose this is good-bye for now. I look forward to our next meeting."

"Help me search this island for the <Pokémon> I seek. As to where to find that <Pokémon>... I can't help feeling that the open spaces among the tall grass seem rather suspect."
  • If spoken to when the player's Pokémon need healing
"What's this? Your Pokémon look a bit stressed. Let me heal them up for you, Orlando."
  • After finding the Pokémon
"Ah, it looks like you really did find a <Pokémon> on this island. Wonderful! Shall we head back?"
  • Expert challenge mission
  • Upon arriving
"The gentleman who sent that challenge should be on this island somewhere. Take care in this battle, Orlando... I suspect he will truly put you to the test!"
  • If spoken to again
"Whoever sent you that challenge should be somewhere on this island."
  • After defeating the challenger
"Judging by the expression on your face, I would say you were victorious, hm? Then I suppose it's time to return to Mossdeep."
  • Special Team Aqua/Magma mission
  • Upon arriving
"Now then... Where is Team Aqua/Magma hiding? Shall we split up and look for them? Come on, Orlando. "
  • If spoken to again outside
"Orlando, how about we split up and search? I'll count on you to do your part."
  • After defeating the admin
"So that's what happened... Team Magma... Team Aqua... What are they all up to... Looks like I need to do some serious investigation."
(May says good-bye.)
"Let's go, Orlando. And farewell for now, little May."
  • Special Nugget mission
  • Upon arriving
"Well now, I wonder who or what this strange man might be. Personally, I have no idea who he is."
"You take care about out there, Orlando."
  • If talked to again
"I wonder just who or what this strange man might prove to be... It seems there's still much I don't understand in this world."
  • After meeting strange man
"Judging by that expression, I take it you encountered the strange man for yourself. I'm glad you're no worse for the experience. Let's head back, Orlando."

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

Granite Cave

"…Mm-hmm. So in the ancient world, their primal forms once held this much power…? The super-ancient Pokémon… What terrible strength… But this appearance here… It seems somehow different from Mega Evolution… Hmm. It seems my questions will not be answered today."
"Hm?"
"You are…? …"
"Ah, I see. It's a pleasure, <player>. My apologies. My name is Steven. I'm interested in rare stones, so I travel here and there. Today my journey brought me here, but what about you? Oh? A letter for me?"
"Why, thank you… It must have been some trouble to track me down. I suppose I must repay you in some way. Let me see… I will give you this TM. Please accept it. It contains my favorite move, Steel Wing."
"If you don't mind me asking… Do you feel anything in particular when you look up at this wall? A primal world, lost thousands of years in the past… A Legendary Pokémon of tremendous power became humanity's greatest threat… The terror aroused by that power is clear to see in this ancient artwork."
"…Yes. But not all power is terrible. Your Pokémon are clearly quite capable as well. Looking at you all together… I think that you have in you what it takes to become a Pokémon League Champion. As long as you keep training, that is."
"Good luck to you. I must be going now."

Route 118

First time
"Why, hello. We met in Granite Cave, didn't we? No, I remember it. It's <player>… Right? It's good to see that your journey is going well."
"You know, <player>… In this vast world, there are many kinds of Pokémon. They come in many types. Should you raise different types? Or will you only raise Pokémon of a certain type you like? I wonder what you think, as a Pokémon Trainer?"
"Not that it's anything I should be concerning myself with… But somehow I find myself wanting to know what you think. I suppose I should be going. I hope to see you again though."
"…Hm?"
"LatiasOR/LatiosAS!"
"Do you…want us to soar somewhere with you?"
"<player>. Come with me."
"LatiasOR/LatiosAS… I believe that it sought us out for help. If that's the case, let's go!"
Returning from Southern Island
"So we've come back here… When you're ready to return to Southern Island, come tell me."
If talked to again
"Are your preparations complete?"
Yes: "If that's the case, let's go!"
No: "I see. I'll be waiting here."

Southern Island

First time
"We've arrived."
"Thank you, LatiasOR/LatiosAS."
"… I don't know what it is… Not quite unease, not quite fear… But there is something…unsettling… It is an odd feeling, as though I am walking in a dream— or an illusion."
"I once heard an odd fable. It was said that the two Pokémon that live on this island guard some secret about that great form of Evolution: Mega Evolution. Could it be that some dangerous element is here because of that? … Come, we should be going."
If talked to again
"What is it you want to do? Would you like to return to Route 118 for a time?"
Yes: "I understand."
"LatiasOR/LatiosAS, if you would oblige…"
No: "In that case… Shall we go see once and for all whether there is anything to be found on this island?"
"LatiosOR/LatiasAS... It's beautiful… If I were to describe such beauty in terms of a stone, it would be a Water StoneOR/Sun StoneAS. No… It goes beyond that… Isn't its brilliance like that of a Dawn Stone? It is as fantastic as a Steel-type Pokémon…"
"Hm? Team MagmaOR/Team AquaAS, is it? So LatiosOR/LatiasAS noticed their coming, and that is why it called on us."
Returning to Southern Island after leaving it
"Now then… Shall we go see once and for all whether there is anything to be found on this island?"
  • Before the battle against Team MagmaOR/Team AquaAS
If the player does not oblige to CourtneyOR/MattAS: "That's right. Full points for the correct answer!"
If the player obliges to CourtneyOR/MattAS: "Hmph! It's good that you feel up to joking, but this is no laughing matter."
"I'll take part in this battle as well. Let's protect LatiosOR/LatiasAS from these beasts together. We cannot allow LatiosOR/LatiasAS or even a Mega Stone to fall into the hands of such villains!"
  • After the battle against Team MagmaOR/Team AquaAS
"Hah…"
"Good work, <player>. Ah, that's right. We should first heal up the Pokémon that fought on our behalf, shouldn't we?"
"You performed spectacularly. We were able to protect both this wondrous Pokémon and its Mega Stone, thanks to you."
"And it looks as though LatiosOR/LatiasAS may have also recognized you as a Trainer worthy of its trust."
"Look. It's trying to offer you its allegiance. I believe it is trying to show that it wants to go with you on your journey. Go on. Hold out your hand to it."
"You should take this from me…"
"With the Mega Bracelet that I just gave you and the Mega Stones that a Pokémon may hold, your Pokémon will be able to achieve a powerful boost, quite unlike any usual form of Evolution… but only if you are bound by great affection. You will be able to achieve Mega Evolution. I suggest you try it with LatiosOR/LatiasAS the next time that you happen to have the chance in battle."
"Mega Evolution is a phenomenon that has long been shrouded in mystery. What is a Mega Stone? What is a Key Stone? The process by which bonds between Pokémon and people manifest in tangible power… How do we explain that?"
"I hope that the Mega Bracelet I just gave you might bring us one step closer to finding the answer to these questions."
"If that settles that… Should we be heading back? Together with LatiasOR/LatiosAS, waiting so patiently for us there…"

Route 118 (post-Southern Island)

"Thank you for your help, <player>."
"Perhaps it's trying to tell you to take good care of LatiosOR/LatiasAS."
"In the end, you were a far greater help than I expected you might be. I expect that you and your team will be able to best both Route 119 ahead and even the Fortree Gym beyond that. I'll be curious to see how much stronger you might grow by the next time we meet. Until then, <player>."

Fortree City

"Hm… It looks as though that Pokémon can be found up on Route 120..."

Route 120

"Hm?"
"<player>? So, we meet again. How has it been? Have you been using the Mega Bracelet wisely? I suppose I needn't even ask, though. Not when it comes to you and your team."
"I wonder… Have you noticed? Hm? There's something here you can't see."
"Now, if I were to use this device on the invisible obstacle…"
"No, no… Rather than describing it, I should just show you. That should be more entertaining."
"<player>… Are you and your Pokémon ready for battle?"
No: "No? I'll wait here, so go get ready."
Yes: "Good. In that case… I want you to take this. Try it on. I'm sure it will fit you."
  • After battling Kecleon
"Just as I expected. That's called a Devon Scope. It's a fantastic piece of tech that lets you see Pokémon in hiding. Consider it a gift from me. Take it."
"And one more thing…"
"This stone* ranks as one of my top five favorite stones in existence. I have no doubt that your Pokémon will like it, too. You know, <player>… I like to see Trainers and Pokémon who are trying their best. That's why I like you so much."
"Hm? It seemed as though something just… shone for a moment in your Bag. I'm sure I sensed the power of some kind of stone… A Meteorite…? No, it couldn't be…"
"Let's meet again someday."

Mossdeep City

"<player>! I heard from Liza and Tate that you visited their Gym. I was thinking of trying to catch you while you were in the area, but then this happened... ... We should talk. Let's go to my place."
"Ah... Yes... I suppose I should welcome you to my home. Please forgive the rather sparse décor... Now, where to begin... Let us take a moment to understand what is happening to our world right now. The rumbling that shook the earth right now... The eardrum-rupturing explosion we heard... They are proof that a seal, which was long hidden deep undersea, has been undone at last. The super-ancient Pokémon that has been sealed deep beneath Route 128 since ancient times... It slept until now in the Seafloor Cavern. The entrance to that cavern was sealed by the power of a certain Pokémon, all in an effort to keep any human or Pokémon from ever breaching it. But now it appears that the scheming of that terrible team has undone the seal. There is no doubt that they intend to revive the super-ancient Pokémon. And once they do so, it seems they hope to make its power their own."
"<player>... If that team obtains the power of the super-ancient Pokémon, it will upset the balance of nature in this world. A crisis unlike any other before it will befall every living thing on this planet. I plan to do everything in my power to quell this situation. That is my duty. But there is a limit to what I can do with my power alone... That is why I am asking for your help. I have great faith in your abilities. Lend me your strength to put a halt to these Teams' mad ambitions! With you and I and our Pokémon all working together, we will overcome this disastrous turn of events. I don't think it is out of the question."
"I will entrust you with this."
"If you use Dive, you will be able to dive to the ocean floor with your Pokémon. And take this so you can stay with your Pokémon even in the depths of the ocean..."
"If you were to use Dive in the correct stretch of water along Route 128... I believe you should be able to reach the entrance to the Seafloor Cavern. I will join you when I finish my duties. Please do what you can to stop Team Aqua and Team Magma until then. I am trusting you to do this for me!"

Route 128

"<player>! I'm sorry I could not be here sooner."'
"Terrible… So this is what was being depicted in that painting in Granite Cave. If this doesn't stop, all Hoenn—no, the entire world—will burn up. Nothing could live in such a land of death—neither Pokémon nor humans! This dreadful blaze… It must be caused by the sweltering heat wave forming above Sootopolis…"OR
"Terrible… So this is what was being depicted in that painting in Granite Cave. If this doesn't stop, all Hoenn—no, the entire world—will drown. Nothing could live in such a world—neither Pokémon nor humans! This huge rain cloud… Is it spreading out from Sootopolis?"AS
"Come on, Steven… Think! What are you going to do? … …No. There's no point in agonizing over the situation from here… I have to go to Sootopolis. There must be answers here."
"<player>… I will count on you to help with this crisis… But…please… Promise you won't do anything reckless. Well then. I'll go ahead to Sootopolis. Good luck to you."

Sootopolis City

"<player>! So you did come… I have been waiting for you. … What terrible heatOR/rainAS… It feels as though the entire world will be burntOR/be washedAS away…"
"Ah, yes. You need to hear what my friend has to say."
"This sunlightOR/rainAS… People and Pokémon need sunlightOR/waterAS to live. So why does this sunlightOR/rainAS fill us with so much dread?"
"The blazing sun over Sootopolis is growing even more intense… Soon all of Hoenn will be caught under its withering glare… If that were to happen…"OR
"The rain clouds massing over Sootopolis keep building… Soon they will extend over all of Hoenn… If that were to happen…"'AS
"Team MagmaOR/Team AquaAS…and Team AquaOR/Team MagmaAS…"
"<player>… To think that you had the Blue OrbOR/Red OrbAS… You'll be OK. You and your Pokémon can handle it, whatever happens. I believe that."
  • After catching or defeating GroudonOR/KyogreAS
"<player>, we owe you great thanks."
"Look above you. The sky over Sootopolis has returned to normal."
"… Team Magma and Team Aqua are made up of people with completely opposing ideals and goals. But perhaps even they can learn to meet halfway…one small concession at a time. I know it's too much to expect that everything will change at once, but… I hope this crisis might at least help take them that first vital step forward."
"I imagine that many changes are happening now all across Hoenn. I hope you will be able to travel this world and see its richness with your own eyes—and revel in its newness in your own heart. But for the present, you may first wish to challenge this city's Pokémon Gym. There, you'll find the very same Wallace who helped us so much waiting for you. He's strong. But the way you are now, you should be capable of battling him on an equal footing. And when you travel the world, you should try to use this. This flute is one of my favorite items."
"This Eon Flute is proof of the bond between you and your LatiosOR/LatiasAS. No matter how far you may be from one another, play that flute and LatiosOR/LatiasAS will surely fly straight to you. Then it can take to the sky, soaring above the land with you astride its back. Yes, just like when we first encountered Latias and Latios at Southern Island…"
"People, Pokémon, nature itself… Our survival in this world depends on all of us living together in harmony. I feel I have just begun to understand that. And I am wondering how the world will continue to change from this point on… It fills me with an inexplicable excitement."
"<player>… As you and your Pokémon live and grow in this changed world, I wonder what effect it will have on you. What will you think about? What ideals will you believe in? If we do get the chance to meet again, I hope you will be able to show me and my team the answers you've found. Until then…"

Pokémon League (first battle)

  • Before battle
"Welcome, <player>. I was hoping I would get to see you make it here one day."
"Tell me… What have you seen on your journey with your Pokémon? What have you felt, meeting so many other Trainers out there? Traveling this rich land of Hoenn… Has it awoken something inside you? I want you to come at me with all that you've learned. My Pokémon and I will respond in turn with all that we know!"
"Let it begin!"
  • Being defeated
"So I, the Champion, fall in defeat…"
  • After being defeated
"Just as I have come to expect. <player>, you are truly an excellent Pokémon Trainer. Congratulations to you! And thank you… I had wanted to learn how you feel about this world, what kinds of ideals you have developed with your Pokémon… I feel I was able to find the answer in our battle. The feelings you have for your Pokémon… And the way that your Pokémon gave their all in battle in response to those feelings… Those two together created a great power. That is how you seized victory today. I felt a thrill of excitement in my breast when we first met, and now I know for sure that feeling was not misplaced! You are rightfully the Hoenn region's new…"
"<player>… No, I should call you the Hoenn region's new Pokémon League Champion… Come with me, Champion."
"I'm very sorry… But only a Trainer who has successfully become the Champion may go beyond this point. You'll need to wait outside with the professor."

Pokémon League (rematch)

  • Before battle (first rematch)
"Welcome, Champion. Let me test my skills against you once again!"
  • Before battle (subsequent rematches)
"Now then... There are no words left for us to exchange. We will understand one another through battle!"
  • Being defeated
"Phew…"
  • After being defeated (first rematch)
"I knew you would be strong… But I don't regret our battle. Because each time that I battle you, I learn more about Pokémon… Yes… I have something I'd like to give to you in thanks for all you've done."
"This is a very special piece from my collection… But I think you are capable of appreciating its worth. Come. It is time we record your great victory."
  • After being defeated (subsequent rematches)
"In the end, you are still the strongest. Amazing. Now let us make a record of your victory!"

Hall of Fame

"This room… This is where we maintain the records of Pokémon that prevailed through the harshest of battles. It is here that League Champions are honored."
"Come. We will use this machine to record your name and the names of the partners who battled along with you to triumph over the Pokémon League!"

Delta Episode

Petalburg City (PokéNav Plus call)

"…'Lo? Hello? …Is that you, <player>? It's me. Steven. Have you been doing well? Heh… I image you must be quite shocked. This is a communication mode that Devon is still currently developing. It comes installed on every PokéNav Plus. I thought I would only use it if I needed to contact you urgently… But it looks as thought that time has already come. I'm sorry to ask this of you, but I need you to come to the Devon Corporation in Rustboro. There's something I have to talk to you about–in person… I'll be waiting for you there."

Rustboro City

"<player>… I'm sorry about summoning you so suddenly. It's well known how often my intuition turns out to be right. But I never imagined we would be meeting again this soon! I'm sorry to say it is not happy news that brings us together."
"Sigh. This isn't something we should discuss in public. Let's continue this inside."
"After you."

Devon Corporation

"Dad… <player> is here."
"…Dad?"
"Dad!"
  • Before Mr. Stone's story*
"My father is... Well, let me just say that I have been his son for 25 years, and sometimes even I am not sure I understand him fully."
  • During Mr. Stone's story
"So that's it… You want him/her to go and get that shard for you."
"It was hardly a deduction worthy of praise…"
"The Link Cable? So it is to be a warp system… Yes, I understand. But Granite Cave… Ah, I see. The floor where we first met–the floor with the ancient wall paintings. It is true there were many shards of meteorite scattered about there."
"It looks like it's decided then, <player>. I will head for the Space Center in Mossdeep. If I learn anything, I will contact you at once. Though it will end up as another one-sided message like the one I sent you, I'm afraid. Good luck."

Granite Cave (PokéNav Plus call)

"…<player>. Were you able to find the Meteorite Shard that we need? If you were able to secure it, could you hurry back to us at the Mossdeep Space Center? I'm afraid we don't seem to have much time left… …I'll be waiting for you."

Mossdeep Space Center (first visit)

"I was rather surprised to learn that you knew the professor. You really do seem to make connections everywhere you go. Now then, Professor… Could I ask you to explain once more about the current plan?"
"An audacious plan… And using such technology you would… May I ask where exactly the asteroid will be warped to?"
"Who…are you? You're no sightseer…"
"Tell me, would you rather we sit here wringing our hands, waiting for the meteoroid to strike us?"
"… Who was that woman? And the way she spoke to us… It's almost as if she came here for some sort of confirmation… And yet… I feel as though I should know her from…somewhere."
"Ah, Professor, forgive me. I believe you were trying to tell us something before that woman interrupted us?"
"Then should we head to Granite Cave once again?"
"Meteor Falls! I see… Perhaps we will learn something there…"
"I will head to Meteor Falls at once. Follow as soon as you are ready. I feel we might discover even more than a Meteorite Shard there…"

Meteor Falls

"<player>. We have the Meteorite Shard. And I have come to understand many things, as I suspected might happen."
"Allow me to introduce you. The honorable lady you see before you is a descendant of the ancient Draconids."
"A rainbow-colored stone… An invocation from the Lorekeeper… And a Rayquaza unlike any ever seen… I see. It does resemble what we know of the process of Mega Evolution…"
"So the mechanism of Mega Evolution was discovered as a result of the first meeting between humanity and Rayquaza… Hmmmm. But I have one last question. That “Lorekeeper” you spoke of…"
"So it was true… As I had suspected, that woman who appeared at the Space Center was one of the Draconids… But I never dreamed she was involved in the attempted revival of the super-ancient Pokémon… In full knowledge of the power they held, fully understanding the terrible changes they would wreak upon our world… Still she helped that situation about? Did she give a thought to the many people and Pokémon whose lives were put at grave risk by her actions? Could she accept the inevitable sacrifice of so many lives, in order to protect the planet from the coming meteoroid?"
"… Is that right? … I understand. Thank you for everything."
"What is this… This vague sense of apprehension… And my intuition has often proven true. I am going back to Rustboro first. I have to get back to Devon."

Mossdeep Space Center (second visit)

"Your timing is as impeccable as always, <player>."
"Team MagmaOR/Team AquaAS… What do you intend to do with that device? You do realize that this is the last hope we have of saving this planet?"
"How convenient it must be for you to put all the blame on another."
"Wha–?!"
"…<player>. This fool! This incredible fool really intends to do it! If we don't stop this now, our whole world will be embroiled in the destruction!"
"You're ready for battle…aren't you?"
No: "… Fine. I understand. You take things as seriously as ever. I suppose I should expect no less."
Yes: "…Wonderful!"
  • After defeating CourtneyOR/MattAS and the Grunt
"…"
"…<player>! Now is our chance! Take the dimensional shifter and–"
"That Pokémon… Doesn't it belong to…"
"You're the–!"
"…What are you trying to say?"
"Ugh…"
"What have…you done…"
"Who exactly is “we”? What are your intentions?"
"Confound it all… She must be making for Team Magma'sOR/Team Aqua'sAS hideout next…"
"Think, Steven. Think! What to do, what to do…"

Team Magma HideoutOR/Team Aqua HideoutAS (PokéNav Plus call)

"<player>! Are you all right?! … Is that right… I never even imagined… The Key Stone… The Sky Pillar… And the Draconid people… So that's it… I begin to see the line connecting these dots. I think we need to meet up at once to discuss what we should do next. I'll be waiting at the Space Center. Up on 2F. Do hurry."

Mossdeep Space Center (third visit)

"<player>! I have been expecting you!"
"Ah… That's it. That woman… That “Zinnia”… She mentioned the Sky Pillar. Few can enter it–only the successors of the ancient world, who know of what has been… The Lorekeepers who are tasked with passing on the knowledge to those who come after…"
"Do you remember Wallace, whom you met in Sootopolis?"
Yes: "Is that right? That is a relief."
No: "Is that right? That's rather sad for Wallace…"
"The Gym Leader of Sootopolis, Wallace, should know how to undo the seal on the Sky Pillar's entance. He is also one of the few humans to have inherited such ancient lore. I will remain here and work the professor and his team to devise a plan for what to do next. That woman…Zinnia… I cannot put my faith in her. We will think of a new way to stop the meteoroid on our own. Zinnia…and the Sky Pillar… I will leave them in your hands. I will send a message to Wallace for you, so he knows to help. You will probably find him in the Cave of Origin in Sootopolis."
"Hm… You know, seeing that white beauty there that you travel with… I'm reminded of the Legendary Pokémon Rayquaza, said to descend at the Sky Pillar. I once had a chance to see it face to face. Although, it was a long time ago now… The young man who battled against Rayquaza beside me… I wonder whatever happened to him and that black Charizard of his… Well, regardless–you must go to the Sky Pillar and see what waits for you there. I don't know what you'll find. Be careful."

Pokémon League

"I still owe you for your help at the Sky Pillar. Thank you for that."
"Heh… You know, this experience really brought it home for me again… That there is still so much about this world that I do not know. I wonder what would have happened to Hoenn… If <player> had not been here to aid us with this, and the incident with the super-ancient Pokémon… I alone was powerless to stop either."
"Hmm. Heh. Don't worry. It's not that I am so shocked by my own disappointing performance. But rather…"
"I was just thinking how much more there is to learn about nature…about Pokémon… and about my fellow humans as well… If I am to keep living in this, huge wide world. I want to walk this world on my own two feet. To see it with my own eyes. To feel it on my very skin… I need to put into practice all of the advice I ever gave to <player>. That's what I am thinking now."
"Hah hah hah! But no need to fear… I won't just disappear at once. I'll still be around to do my duty on behalf of the Pokémon League."
"But, hmm… When the time comes for me to pursue my own hopes…"
"Well, I hope that you, Wallace, will be behind me to lend a hand."
"Hah hah hah… Thank you, my friend…"

Post-Delta Episode

Mossdeep City (letter)

"Dear <player>… I have something in mind, so I will be away in training for some time. I do not expect to return to my home anytime soon. Which brings me to a request. I want you to take the Poké Ball that you should find on my desk. The Beldum inside is one of my favorite Pokémon, so I hope you'll treat it like one of your own. Trusting we will meet again,
Steven Stone"
"P.S. I had sent you another Beldum, rather a special one. Did it reach you safely? Of course, both are cool and sublimely strong. I trust they will teach you the joys of Steel-type Pokémon."

Battle Maison

"I'd be honored. I anticipate that battling together with you will help me realize something new!"
  • After ending the Multi Battle challenge
"I see. So this is the end for us today? I don't believe you gave it all you have in you. The unplumbed depths of your true power are quite frightening. Still, I look forward to battling together again some day."
"It is what it is. So it is only natural that our Champion-level combo would win."
  • After losing the Multi Battle challenge
"It is what it is. We lost the battle, but I was still able to learn something. Thank you."

Story Event - The Strongest There Is
  • Intro
"You look like you've been working hard on your battling skills. I should go do some training, or you might pass me up."
  • The Strength of a Champion
"What do you think you're doing here, hm?"
"Goodness. I didn't think I was that scary."
"Are you going to tell Wallace and me why you were following us?"
Your secret training techniques!: Our secret training techniques, huh?"
"Well, I'm not trying to hide anything in particular. If you follow me, I may be able to teach you a thing or two."
"Before we get to that, I need you to understand something..."
"Learning from others is great, of course, but discovering things on your own is also a key part of Pokémon battling."
  • What's the Secret?
"A beautiful hike like this certainly brings back memories of home, don't you think, Wallace?"
"Hey, check out this stone!"
"I think it's time for you to leave. Don't you?"
"Well, what will it be, boys? If you insist on robbing my friends, you'll have to get through me first. I can take you all on at once, if you like."
"Well, now that that's out of the way... That stone that you two picked up is actually—"
"*sigh* The stone will have to wait. I have some ruffians to take care of first."
  • Cracking the Mystery
"These grunts aren't much of a challenge. Come on, Wallace. Let's take care of these last few stragglers."
"Oh? I'm sorry, I don't believe we've met."
"Can I borrow it for a moment, Barry? I think you may be surprised..."
"This stone may look ordinary on the outside, but it's actually quite rare. It's called a geode. Those are crystals on the inside."
"It takes years and years for the crystals to form into something beautiful like this."
"They must have brought in rock and soil from other regions when they were building up these mountains."
"Pasio's origins as an artificial island come with all sorts of surprises, it seems. I never thought I'd find a geode like this here."
"It's really incredible, if you think about it."
Do you have any stones like this already, Steven?: "I do, in fact. I have quite a variety of rare geodes in my personal collection."
Do you want this stone, too?: "Oh, no. That one is for you to keep! I actually have quite a variety of rare geodes in my personal collection."
"If you're curious, you can always stop by and see the collection yourself."
"Of course! Challenge accepted. How are you feeling, Wallace?"
"You've actually got me curious about something, Grant."
"Let's save that for after the battle, shall we?"
  • The Real Secret!
"Yes. I wanted to ask you about the stones you use in your hair."
"Curious... But even if that's the case, your placement of the stones and choice of color are brilliant!"
"You may not put much thought into it, but you've clearly breathed life into those stones."
"I do have a thing for stones. You're right about that much. But it goes deeper than that."
"I travel the world in search of interesting stones, but so much happens along the journey before I ever find a single one."
"I get to encounter all sorts of people and Pokémon along the way, as well as experience the beauty of nature."
"My love for stones is reflected in all of those things."
"So if there really is a secret key to my strength..."
"I'd say it's having something I'm passionate about and appreciating all of the experiences I have as I follow my passion."
"Of course it was. Building a friendship with someone as bright and encouraging as you has been a big part of my journey."
"Everyone knows that I have plenty of strength on my own in a battle."
"But when I have a friend battling at my side, I can be even stronger than that."
"I think so. Both of you have kept up with us fairly well as we've battled our way up this mountain."
"And you were definitely on the right track in that tussle with the masked thugs earlier, as well as in our battle with Grant just now."
"If Pokémon battling is already something that you love, I'm sure you're well on your way to becoming great Trainers someday."
"So keep following your passions, all right?"
"Once you're confident in your strength, you should come challenge me in Hoenn."
"After all, when it comes down to it... I'm just the strongest there is right now."
Story Event - Summer Superstars (Summer 2020)
  • The Sync Pair Music Festival!
"Wow. It looks like everyone's having a good time."
"This is the Sync Pair Music Festival, a celebration of summer here on Pasio..."
"The food booths do look good, not to mention the other booths that have shooting games and prize raffles."
"Is that a Hoenn Rangers action figure? It's not every day you come across one of those. Do you know about the Hoenn Rangers?"
I sure do!: "I'm impressed. Even in Hoenn, there aren't many people who know about them."
Are they some kind of heroes?: "Yes. They're a team of local heroes who operated in Hoenn back in the day."
"I hear their popularity was short-lived due to the Pokémon Contest Spectaculars starting up around the same time."
"Come to think of it, the excitement of this festival reminds me of the Pokémon Contest Spectaculars."
"The Pasio Superstar Competition, huh? Prizes aside, this seems like a good chance to test my skills."
"I can sense from my sync stone that Sandslash has gotten stronger. Now I'd like to see it for myself."
"And I'd also like my Metagross to see me in my moment of triumph since we've trained so much together."
"Why don't the three of us make a team, then?"
Yeah! Let's do it!: "I'm glad to be a part of the team! I have no intention of losing in either musical sense or group composition!"
Let's go for the win!: "That's the spirit! I mean, I intended to win this from the start."
"All right. First, we have to make it through the preliminaries."
"It looks like we're up against them first."
"The team from Alola, where summer never ends... Looks like we've already got our work cut out for us."
"In that case, let's cool them off with our own music."
"All right, Lyra and <player>!"
"Let's get focused and ready for our first team competition!"
  • Festival Fans and Superstars
"It looks like we made to the finals. Well done, everyone, for making it this far."
"You two seem to be enjoying this almost too much. Are you feeling OK?'
"It looks like Sandslash is worried about you, too. Be careful not to get so fired up that you burn out."
"I'm certainly not surprised we're competing against them for first place."
"Two musicians and a contest idol. It looks like a lot of their fans have come to cheer them on, too."
"Hey, you may be Wallace's niece, but that doesn't mean I'm going to hold back!"
"Ryuki, was it? I've heard stories about your skill."
  • Jigglypunk!
"Uh-oh... It looks like their enthusiasm backfired."
"Wow... That's intense..."
"Jigglypuff's voice is pretty potent... At this rate, we're all...gonna fall...asleep..."
"Wow. Never in a million years did I think she could sing like that."
She's even a match for Ryuki!: "She sure is. And Ryuki seems happy about it, too."
It's so cool!: "Yes! I think it's cool, too."
"Come on, we still have time to show them what we've got."
"Let's win over the audience and secure our first-place spot!"
  • Endless Summer!
"And I'm going to prove my bond with Sandslash by winning against you!"
"Oh, that's not it. I'm happy I was able to win first place with Sandslash at my side."
"It's just that I'm not very interested in prize money or becoming an official promo rep or anything like that."
"Incredible! This ore... Is this what I think it is?"
"Ah-ha! I knew it! It's so hard to get these days, what with the increase in industrial demand!"
"Gosh! I'm so jealous of you all! You get to look at this ore every day!"
"Really?! Thank you! I'll take good care of it!"
Story Event - Dazzling Dizzying Battle Stage
  • Gorgeous Genes
"Phew! That was some great training!"
"Thanks for the battle, <player>."
They look so much alike...: "Hahaha, I guess they do! They are uncle and niece, after all!"
"I suppose those two will be rivals in beauty in both battles and contests here on Pasio."
Prestige Event - Battle Buffet Bash
  • Legendary Flavor!
"Ah, I see you all found your way to the buffet as well. Are you enjoying yourselves?"
"I believe it is, actually. Did you have your eye on the spaghetti as well?"
"You guessed correctly! The inky black color reminds me of a Dusk Stone."
"What secrets lie hidden within that swirling black whirlpool of pasta..."
"Something tells me that one bite of it will transport my taste buds to a whole new world of flavor!"
I want to be transported!: "Ah, apologies. I forgot that this is one of those battle events."
We wanna try it, too!: "Ah, apologies. I forgot that this event has special rules."
"Well, then? How about we battle for the right to taste the spaghetti?"
"With a Legendary Pokémon of Galar as our opponent, my partner and I will have no choice but to crush you with everything we've got!"
  • Alola's Most Famous!
"So I, the Champion of Hoenn, fall in defeat..."
"Well done. You and your partner make an excellent pair!"
Story Event - Hearts United
  • You're Invited!
"We wanted to share our excitement with you in person rather than simply dropping off an invite."
"And the audience is going to get to see some impeccably stylish battling!"
  • Steven's Strength
"Now, Rayquaza!"
"Well, I believe you deserve some credit for helping me dissolve much of the mystery surrounding Rayquaza."
"Indeed. Thanks to you, I gained a deeper understanding of Rayquaza. I chose to battle you today to show you how much that's paid off."
"That's true, I suppose..."
"I did battle a Rayquaza once before, though."
"If not for the help of a certain formidable Trainer, I would have been in deep trouble."
"That battle remains burned into my memory to this day."
"I can still see it clearly in my mind—that Trainer standing defiantly before the might of Rayquaza."
"Now that I've partnered up with this Rayquaza here on Pasio..."
"I hope that the pair of us can grow strong enough to surpass him!"
"Besides, there's another Trainer on Pasio who's partnered up with a Rayquaza."
"I'd like to battle her someday, too."
"And this time, I think I'll be able to approach a battle against Rayquaza a bit differently than before."
"If I'm going to battle, I'd obviously rather win than lose!"
"Just like I intend to defeat you right now!"
"Let's do this, Rayquaza!"
  • Two Regions, Two Legends
"What's the matter, Rayquaza? Are you curious about Eternatus?"
"It's acting like it does when it sees a meteorite..."
"That would make sense..."
"In any case, it seems your partner has sparked a flame within Rayquaza."
"Shall we sate its curiosity with a battle?"
"Come on, Rayquaza! Let's show these two how strong we are!"
  • Double Rayquaza
"I assume you came to watch the gala?"
"What a coincidence. My Rayquaza seems quite interested in yours as well."
"Maybe it's natural for Rayquaza to be drawn to other Rayquaza."
"True... You may be right about that."
"But you've only just arrived! Why not stay and enjoy the gala for a while?"
"I'll be looking forward to it."
"Rayquaza and I will blow your imagination away!"


Sync Pair Story - A Day with Steven
Nice work!/Congrats on the win!: "These sync stones have a truly brilliant shine to them, don't they?"
"Their beauty is different from any other stone I've seen before..."
Uhh, are you listening to me?/Looking at rocks on your Poryphone?: "Hm?"
"Oh! Hello there, <player>! Sorry, I was a bit preoccupied with this stone..."
What sort of stone?: "Why, a very special stone!"
You really like stones, huh?: "I do! And this one is a very special stone!"
"A stone that can only be found at the bottom of the ocean near Pasio... A sync stone, of course!"
"I've traveled far and wide to find a stone that sparkles and shines as perfectly as this one does."
"The bond that grows and develops between a Trainer and a Pokémon is often referred to as sync strength..."
"And sync stones react to that strength, making them glitter even more brightly."
"But you already knew that, didn't you?"
"Due to my status as a Champion, I get challenged to Pokémon battles constantly here on Pasio."
"But one of the great things about that is that I get to see everyone's sync stones shine whenever I battle!"
"The fact that I get to see them sparkle makes me look forward to battling even more."
"The thing is..."
"Well, every sync stone shines a bit differently. Each one is unique."
"Don't get me wrong—I'm incredibly pleased by that fact."
"But I believe there's a well of even greater potential hidden within these stones."
"That's why... <player>! Do you have time for a battle right now?"
"Against you, my sync stone could potentially shine brighter than it ever has before, as long as we fight with all our might!"
You're on!/Challenge accepted!: "All right! Thanks for agreeing to help."
"Let's give this everything we've got, Metagross!"
"We're going to make our sync stone sparkle like it's never sparkled before!"
"Metagross! Let's go!"
"Hah! Just as I thought!"
"You and your Pokémon truly are a spectacular sync pair, <player>!"
"When a Trainer and a Pokémon join together with a bond as strong as yours..."
"that strength really does seem to reflect in their sync stone."
"Just like how polishing a gemstone makes it sparkle, it seems we sync pairs need to hone our skills in order to shine as well!"
"Please, will you join me again sometime soon? I'd like to polish our battling skills together!"
"Absolutely!/I don't plan on losing!': "Hah! Great answer! I knew my instincts about you were correct."
"Soon, Metagross and I will be shining brighter than ever before! And I'm sure you and your Pokémon will do the same."
"Although..."
"when it comes down to it, I'm just the strongest there is right now."
Sync Pair Story - A Day with Steven (Anniversary 2021)
"Hmm... Maybe I should just go out and search for meteorites instead..."
Hey there!: "Oh, hi, <player>! How's it going?"
What are you up to?: "Oh, hi, <player>! I didn't think I'd run into you today."
"I was just doing a bit of thinking."
"Did you know that Rayquaza can Mega Evolve without using a Mega Stone? It's part of what drew me to forming a sync pair with mine."
"But I've still barely scratched the surface when it comes to learning about its Mega Evolution."
Do you know any experts that could help?: "Hmm... There is one person I know who's studied Mega Evolution."
I wouldn't know where to start.: "Yes, I am in a bit of a pickle. If only I could find someone well-versed in the subject."
"Professor Sycamore!"
"<player> and I were just talking about Rayquaza's Mega Evolution."
"You wouldn't happen to know why it's able to Mega Evolve without the power of a Mega Stone, would you?"
"Ahh... Curious about Rayquaza, are you?"
"That's what I was thinking."
"We do have evidence that Rayquaza have eaten meteorites in the Hoenn region."
"What do you think that could mean?"
It uses meteorites as an energy source?: "Precisely. I believe that's the correct conclusion as well."
Meteorites are its favorite food?: "*chuckle* I'm not sure about that. But I do think it may be able to use meteorites as some kind of energy source."
"Ah, sorry, Rayquaza. You must be getting bored of all this science talk."
"There's still so much I don't understand about you..."
"but as for what you're feeling right now, I think I may have a hunch."
"“Enough talk. Let's have a battle already.” ...Am I right?"
"Hey, you don't have time for a quick battle with us, do you?"
"Theorizing is great, but battling is still the best way I know to understand a Pokémon better!"
Let's do it!: "I had a feeling you'd be on board!"
"Right now?: "Of course!"
"I don't know how much longer Rayquaza can contain itself with such formidable opponents right in front of it."
"I appreciate it!"
"In that case... <player>! It's time to battle!"
"Let's make it crystal clear which one of us is the strongest!"

  • Upon being summoned in sync pair scout (Summer 2020)
"We're the hottest, coolest team around."
  • Special Summer Superstars event intro (Summer 2020)
"Good to see you, <player>. Oh, are you surprised by these new outfits we're wearing?"
"Apparently there's going to be a music festival for sync pairs to enjoy."
"I brought this Sandslash I've been raising. I was thinking we could test our skills in a place that's bustling with activity."
"Why don't you come with us to the festival?"
  • Random conversation
"I've done a fair bit of wandering from place to place, starting with the Hoenn region, where I grew up."
"Part of my goal was to traverse the land in search of rare stones, but more than that..."
"I wanted to walk this world on my own two feet. To see it with my own eyes. To feel it on my very skin."
"How about you? What is it that you want to learn or experience here on Pasio? I'd be interested to hear your story sometime."
  • If spoken to again
"As a Champion, I wouldn't have been able to travel around so freely if not for the support I had from others."
"I'm eternally grateful for all of the help they gave me."
  • Random conversation
"Traveling here and there—hunting rare stones and collecting my favorites—is my hobby."
"Although...you probably already knew that. I'm sure I've mentioned it at least once or twice."
"Anyways, the reason I keep bringing it up is..."
"Well, it's sync stones. Do you think it would be possible to take a sync stone back to the Hoenn region with me?"
  • If spoken to again
"Did you know that sync stones react to the bond between a sync pair? The stronger that bond is, the brighter the stone shines."
"With a luster like that, sync stones probably rank as one of my top five favorite kinds of stones in existence."
  • Random conversation
"Sync pairs are what ideal partnership between people and Pokémon looks like."
"It would be amazing if this sort of relationship expanded beyond Pasio someday."
"Think about it. We would all be so much more in tune with one another. It could bring harmony to the entire planet."
"That's my theory, anyway."
  • If spoken to again
"I hope that someday the world will accept the simple, most fundamental truth into their hearts..."
"The truth that people and Pokémon are connected. We simply can't exist without each other."
  • Random conversation
"I have a house in Mossdeep City, back in Hoenn. I was staying there before I traveled to Pasio."
"Have you met Tate and Liza? They're the Mossdeep City Gym Leaders, so I've had a lot of interaction with them..."
"It really is a splendid place. You should visit sometime."
"I'd love to show you to my home, though you'll have to forgive the rather sparse decor..."
  • If spoken to again
"I wonder what my next adventure will be after I return to Mossdeep City..."
"I could always do a bit more traveling. Or perhaps I could settle down and dedicate my time to training."
  • Random conversation
"There are many things in this world that one cannot accomplish alone."
"That's why it's so essential that we have friends...and that we help each other when we're in need."
"With you and I and our Pokémon all working together, <player>..."
"I feel like we could overcome any disaster that comes at us. Don't you agree?"
  • If spoken to again
"I've been keeping an eye on you and your Pokémon. You've been training hard, pushing yourselves to grow stronger."
"I like to see partners who do their best together. That's why I like you so much!"
  • Random conversation
"A lot of great sync pairs have gathered here on Pasio..."
"but I find myself particularly drawn to you and your Pokémon."
"It's clear that your battle skills are a cut above the rest, and you share a close-knit bond with each other."
"But what really impresses me is the number of friends you have made who truly support you."
"It's an incredible power to have. Don't go taking it for granted, all right?"
  • If spoken to again
"If you ever make it to the Hoenn region in the future, come and find me. I'll be waiting for your challenge."
"Let's put it all on the line. No holding back... Just me and you in a battle to see who's the strongest!"
  • Random conversation
"We all have a hidden glimmer within ourselves... a hidden excellence."
"When we're passionate about something or we're protecting something we care about, that glimmer inside us shines really brightly..."
"like the way the facets of a gemstone glint in the light. I love people and Pokémon that have that sort of glimmer."
"I mean people and Pokémon like you and your partner. I was referring to you two, in case that didn't come across."
  • If spoken to again
"It's not about what's on the outside. That beautiful glimmer shines from within you."
"It may not be visible to you, but to those of us who see you doing your very best each day, you shine like a precious gem."
"That's why I like you both so much."
  • Random conversation (Summer 2020)
"This outfit looks nice and cool, doesn't it?"
"We're going to a festival, after all. I would look out of place in my regular suit."
"However, this new look of mine might explain why I suddenly find myself surrounded by people."
"Or maybe it's because I'm so well known in Hoenn?"
  • Random conversation (Summer 2020)
"Pasio is an artificial island that was created for the PML."
"What sort of energy system is in place that's capable of providing power to an artificial island of this scale?"
"I'd love to know more about the technology being utilized here."
  • Random conversation (Summer 2020)
"Have you heard of Groudon? It's a Legendary Pokémon native to Hoenn."
"Groudon is said to have called up harsh sunlight that dried up the ocean, expanding the continents."
"Well, the summer sun isn't as dangerous as that."
"It's just that I'm always reminded of that story on hot days like today."
  • Random conversation (Summer 2020)
"I'm not very good at cutting loose and having a good time."
"It's great to see Pasio so caught up in such a festive atmosphere, but I just don't know how to enjoy it..."
"I know! If you see any booths that have geological finds on display, could you let me know?"
"You'd be surprised what rare stones you can sometimes find at places like this!"
  • Random conversation (Summer 2020)
"<player>! If you're going out to do fieldwork, be especially mindful of the heat."
"Some Pokémon perk up in strong sunlight, but be careful not to get too much sun yourself."
"You'll be safe if you're going into caves to search for rare stones..."
"but if you're outside and you think you may be getting too much sun, be sure to get under some shade right away."
  • Random conversation (Summer 2020)
"Our bonds with our partner Pokémon can grow stronger even outside of battles."
"In other words, we can create new bonds by enjoying summer to the fullest with our Pokémon."
"The same goes for relationships between Trainers. Summer can create new bonds there as well."
"Spending time together is a valuable experience that's worth every moment."
  • If spoken to again

  • Random conversation (Anniversary 2021)
"What do you and your Pokémon do when you come across a really big obstacle?"
"Rayquaza and I can simply soar right over it."
"But using brute strength to smash through it or circumnavigating it altogether are also perfectly good options."
"There's always more than one way to do things."
  • Random conversation (Anniversary 2021)
"My partner Rayquaza is such a fascinating Pokémon. Did you know it likes to eat meteorites?"
"I happen to love rocks and stones as well, so we make an excellent team."
"Though I am slightly worried that it might try to gobble up my prized collection one day..."
  • Random conversation (Anniversary 2021)
"I spotted Wallace earlier today. He was smiling ear to ear as he watched all the passersby moving about the city."
"We're so lucky to be in a place full of smiles and happy people."

"I felt a thrill of excitement in my chest the first time we battled... I'll never forget it."
"Every day I get to battle you feels like a celebration of that first time!"
  • Random conversation (Anniversary 2021)
"Do you want to know why rocks and stones are so amazing? I'd love to teach you."
"Other than gemstones, rocks are mostly plain and colorless. Not much sparkle or shine."
"But behind every stone is an incredible backstory."
"Every stone you see has a reason for being there."
  • If spoken to again
"It takes a long time for a stone to become what it is, just like it takes time for us to grow and become stronger."
"I hope you and your Pokémon continue to deepen your bond together as you grow on your journey."
