This article is about the household appliance. For Secret Base decoration, see TVs.

Televisions or TVs are part of the furniture in most houses in the Pokémon world. They debuted in Generation I, but were merely for decoration until Generation III. They have also appeared in the Pokémon anime.

Contents

In the games

Prior to Diamond and Pearl, the games featured non-widescreen CRT TVs. Diamond and Pearl replaced them with widescreen CRT TVs, and a widescreen flat-panel TV can be found at the Villa in Platinum. Flat-screen TVs became the standard model in Black and White.

Kanto and Johto

Television in Red and Blue

The TV in the player's house displays a movie. Other televisions in these games were merely for decoration purposes. Televisions normally appeared in residential houses. In Generation I, televisions are in the middle of the room.

In Johto, the Goldenrod Radio Tower broadcasts radio programs.

Movie
Red Blue Yellow FireRed LeafGreen
"There's a movie on TV. Four boys are walking on railroad tracks. I better go too." "There's a movie on TV. Four boys are walking on railroad tracks. ...I better go, too." *
"There's a movie on TV. A girl with her hair in pigtails is walking up a brick road. …I better go, too." *
Gold Silver Crystal HeartGold SoulSilver
"There's a movie on TV: Stars dot the sky as two boys ride on a train... I'd better get rolling too!" "The TV is playing a movie! Two boys are in a cave searching for treasure! I better get going..."
The movie from Red, Blue, and Yellow and FireRed and LeafGreen (if player is male) is a reference to the movie Stand by Me. If the player is female, the movie from FireRed and LeafGreen is a reference to the movie The Wizard of Oz.

Teachy TV

Bag Teachy TV Sprite.png

The Teachy TV, which exists only in FireRed and LeafGreen, airs the Poké Dude Show, where a character called the Poké Dude instructs the player on basic gameplay elements like how to catch Pokémon and how to battle.

  • Start of the show
"Hey, all you Trainers out there! HELLO, Trainers! ……… ……… ……… Come on, let me hear you! HELLO, Trainers! It's me, the Poké Dude!"
  • Before moving to a particular aspect of the show (aside from TMs)
"All righty, here goes! Keep your eyes glued to the super/sorta super Poké Dude Show!"
  • End of the show
"Remember, Trainers, a good deed a day brings happiness to stay!"
"Teach me how to battle."
"Today, the Poké Dude's here to tell you about how you can battle Pokémon! Say you're out for a stroll when, suddenly, a wild Pokémon appears! It's up to you to smartly use your Pokémon and their moves to reduce the opponent's HP to nothing, and claim victory! I'll show you how to do that in person and for sure!"
"The speedier of the battlers gets to attack first. It looks like my Rattata was faster than the Pidgey. The battlers take turns attacking and reducing each other's HP. My Rattata reduced the foe's HP to zero, so it wins! The Pokémon that took part in the battle get EXP. Points. When a Pokémon collects enough EXP. Points, it levels up. Leveling up makes your Pokémon stronger than before."
"Well, did you get that? Even if your own Pokémon's HP falls to zero, and it becomes unable to battle, not to worry! Just take it to any Pokémon Center and heal it!"
"What are status problems?"
"Today, the Poké Dude's here to tell you about status problems! Status problems include poisoning, paralysis, sleep, burn… There are a couple others, but they really are trouble. Get any one, and your Pokémon may become useless in battle. You know, it hurts the Poké Dude to see a Pokémon suffer… So, what should you do if your Pokémon gets a status problem? Well, you've got me to show you!
"Uh-oh… My Rattata has been poisoned… If a Pokémon is poisoned, it loses HP steadily. If a Pokémon develops a status proble, heal it right away. Using an item on a Pokémon uses up one turn, though. Now, it's the opponent's turn! Yay! We managed to win!"
"Poisoning or paralysis don't go away after a battle. If a Pokémon is poisoned, it loses HP even while you're walking. You should heal Pokémon of these kinds of problems right away. Use an item, or try to get to a Pokémon Center for healing. That wasn't hard, was it? All righty, be seeing you!"
"What are type matchups?"
"Does everyone know about type matchups? Pokémon and their moves all belong to certain types. For example, there are such types as Grass and Water. You need to consider the type of the move used to attack… And, the type of the Pokémon that is hit by that attack. Depending on how those two types match up, the damage can change. You see, it depends n whether the type matchup is good or bad. If you don't know how matchups work, battles will be tough. So, let me demonstrate exactly what I mean. All righty, be seeing you!"
"The move Bubble is a Water-type attack. The targeted Oddish is a Grass/Poison-type Pokémon. The Water-type attack is absorbed by the Grass-type Pokémon… As a result, the move becomes not very effective, and inflicts only half the usual damage. Uh-oh, this is not good! The Absorb attack you just saw is a Grass-type move. Poliwag is a Water-type Pokémon. So, Absorb becomes super effective, doubling the damage. It's not going to be easy to win with this matchup… Let's try shifting Pokémon! Shifting Pokémon in and out uses up one turn. Now, it's the opponent's turn. Butterfree is a Bug/Flying-type Pokémon. Against this Pokémon, a Grass-type attack……inflicts only half the usual damage on a Bug-type Pokémon… And, it also causes only half the damage on Flying-type Pokémon. Therefore, Butterfree, being a Bug/Flying Pokémon, only takes one quarter of the usual damage. Oddish is a GrassPoison Pokémon. A Flying- or Psychic-type attack is super effective against it. One of those types of attacks will inflict double the usual damage. Okay, here we go! Yeah! We won!"
"Is it possible to launch an attack that will inflict heavy damage? Does the opposing Pokémon pose a threat to your Pokémon? Is there any chance that it may have disastrously tough moves? Watch the type matchups to gain the upper hand! All righty, be seeing you! Oh, for the Cool-type Poké Dude, Awesome-type kids like you match up perfectly!"
"I want to catch Pokémon."
"Today, the Poké Dude's going to show you how to catch Pokémon! Just imagine… A groovy Pokémon suddenly appearing in the wild! Oh, you want it! You just can't help it! Oh, you have to catch it! You gotta have it! Let me show you how you can make it happen!"
"When you're trying to catch a Pokémon, don't throw any Poké Balls right away. First, you need to weaken it by reducing its HP. Okay, that should be good enough. But, if it's possible, it would be best if the target has a status problem. For instance, it would be easier to catch if it were asleep or paralyzed. This will make the Pokémon a lot easier to catch! Oh, yes. If you paralyze a Pokémon, you can't make it fall asleep on top of paralysis. In other words, you can't double up status problems, okay? Okay! Let me throw my Poké Ball! Before you throw a Poké Ball, consider the condition and the type of Pokémon, and pick the kind of Ball that would work best."
"If your first Poké Ball fails to catch the Pokémon, don't give up! Keep throwing Poké Balls… It's bound to work sometime! All righty, be seeing you!"
"Teach me about TMs."
"Hey, everyone! Do you all have TMs? A TM, Technical Machine, is an amazingly great item! It teaches Pokémon a move that it may not learn when leveling up! Isn't that just great? What a convenient world we live in! Open the TM Case and check out the TMs you have. You can check them out in detail, too."
"Normal, Water, Grass… TMs also come in types. Check the type and teach it to a Pokémon that matches up well. For example, Water Pulse is suitable for Water-type Pokémon. Bullet Seed is a move that most Grass-type Pokémon can learn. There's one other thing! Don't just look at the type, read the description, too. It will contain hints about what Pokémon might learn the move. For example, take a move like Focus Punch. It doesn't sound like anything a bird or fish Pokémon can learn. So, try using it on Pokémon with arms that can throw punches!"
"Wow, I talked a lot today! All righty, be seeing you!"
"How do I register an item?"
"A Trainer's Bag has a bunch of nifty, convenient features! Take stuff in the Key Items pocket, for instance. You can use a Key Item without opening the Bag every time. For example, let's pretend I have a Teachy TV in my Bag. I can register it for instant use, and I'll show you how!
And now, your Teachy TV is registered. How do you use it? Well, here's how it works. Once an item in the Key Items Pokcet is registered, you can use it by pressing Select. So, you've given yourself one-touch access to Teachy TV. All it takes for you to see me is pressing one button! That kind of attention is a little embarrasing! All righty, be seeing you!"

Hoenn

The following program only displays on the lower floor of the player's house. The TV does not flash for this program.

"There is a movie on TV. Two men are dancing on a big piano keyboard. Better get going!"
"A movie is on TV. Two men are dancing on a big piano keyboard. Better get going!"

This is a reference to the movie Big.

Generation III

Main article: Hoenn TV

Television returned in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, replacing Generation II's radio broadcasts and served a purpose unlike the Generation I TVs. They were present in most houses in Hoenn, but had a limited function, only showing programs when an event occurs, such as swarming Pokémon, or when the player changes a Pokémon's nickname at the Name Rater. They may also show interviews with the player character, who answers by selecting words from a drop-down list. When a program is airing, the television screen will flash, and will not cease flashing until the program has been watched. If an event has not happened to activate a television program, the screen will remain blank and the phrase "Mom/Dad might like this program... better get going!" will be played. The programming is organized by Hoenn TV.

Generation VI

All programs that were shown on televisions in the Generation III games are now shown on the BuzzNav by TV Mauville. Televisions instead show programs similar to those seen in Kalos.

Sinnoh

Main article: Jubilife TV
Television in Diamond and Pearl

In Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum television screens flash constantly. Jubilife TV produces many television programs broadcast all around the Sinnoh region. Each program includes information about events happening around Sinnoh, including swarming Pokémon and weather affecting different routes. They may also contain information about the player which is customizable by speaking to a number of interviewers which can be found scattered around the region. Like in the previous generation, the answers to the interviewers' questions are limited, but more answers can be added by learning trendy phrases in Snowpoint City.

There are eightDP/ninePt programs, each of which air multiple shows. At the conclusion of each program, a series of commercials can be watched.

Battling Trainers
"MC: Good morning/day/evening! Is everyone raising Pokémon? It's time for the Battling Trainers! OK, let's get with it and check in on our Trainers!"
"MC: All righty! What's next on Battling Trainers?"
"MC: I hope you enjoyed this showing of Battling Trainers. Until the next broadcast... Good-bye, and good battling!"
"MC: On Battling Trainers, we're always on the hunt for news. Our interviewers have scattered throughout Sinnoh. We look forward to hearing about you, Trainers! That's all the time we have today! Good-bye, and good battling!"

Later, at the Survival Area, the player will encounter the cameraman responsible for this story. In Platinum, this person can be found blocking the entrance to Lake Valor hoping to see Azelf before Team Galactic detonates the Galactic Bomb there.

There is also a TV in the Old Chateau which contains a wild Rotom at night (after obtaining the National Pokédex in Diamond and Pearl, and at any time in Platinum).

Unova

In Pokémon Black and White, televisions show a variety of different programs. The type of television shows that are broadcast at any particular instance depend on the in-game time.

In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, instead of airing programs based on the hour, the player can choose from three channels to watch: Celebrity, Battle, and Variety.

Kalos

In Pokémon X and Y, televisions show a variety of different programs. Unlike in Generation V, the television shows that are broadcast do not depend on the in-game time and are completely random (though the player will never watch the same program twice in a row). If the player watches the same television and does not exit the room, repeats of an episode they have already watched won't reappear. If all episodes of a program have been watched, the television broadcast will skip that program entirely and move on to another un-watched program; these cannot be viewed again until the player exits the room.

Shows that are broadcast include:

Alola

In Pokémon Sun and Moon, televisions only show a program where a person eats different varieties of malasada.

"There are mounds of malasada waitin' for you! Join us to enjoy some marvelous malasada! ♪ Alola, fans! Let me tell you that today... ♪"

We Love the GTS!

Broadcast in Pt (Trend Tracker Show) A reporter asks a random bystander in the GTS station what they think of the Pokémon that they've received. The interview subject gives generally positive reviews, but wonders why his Pokémon has such a strange set of moves; Cut, Explosion, Double-Edge, and Reversal. The Pokémon is not named, but the only Pokémon that can learn all four of these moves is Smeargle. It is possible that this is a reference to cheating.

"Hello! It's time for We Love the GTS! The show for fans of the GTS! Excuse me! Did you just make a trade? Can we get a word, please? ...Huh? Me? Are you talking to me? Um, it makes me happy knowing I can always trade for what I want here. But there is something that does bother me sometimes. It's about the moves some traded Pokémon know. I mean, this one's moves are Explosion, Cut, Double-Edge, and Reversal. Like, what a weird set. Is there any meaning behind this? Well, isn't that a neat story! It must mean something to someone! That's all until next week!"

Diary of a Poké Romantic / Best of Sinnoh TV

Broadcast in PtB2W2XYORAS (Trend Tracker Show) Diary of a Poké RomanticPt / Best of Sinnoh TVB2W2XYORAS documents the romances and beginning Trainer and her Kricketune while traveling in search of the Gym Leader with whom she is smitten. She is aided by her childhood Bug Catcher friend. It is aired on the Variety channel in Black 2 and White 2.

"I was just your average girl until I was struck by a Thunder Shock. It was love at first sight, baby! And my target, a Gym Leader! I didn't have any Pokémon then, but not a problem for a resourceful gal! The answer was simple—and we all know simple is best! I just had to become a Trainer. That's all it took for me! "The Diary of a Poké Romantic" will soon make its debut! The pilot episode: "Love at First Sight: The Rules of the Move Attract!" By the way, how did everyone get their first Pokémon anyway?"
"After some fits and starts, a childhood friend gave me my first Pokémon! ...It was a Kricketot. Except...I don't like the legs of bugs. I bet he gave me this because I picked on him when he was little... But though the road has been long and hard, I'm finally at the starting line! Next week: "The Diary of a Poké Romantic," episode two! "The Maiden in Love and the Kricketot: The Magic of Romance Never Ends!" Oh, this Kricketot is a female. Maybe we can be friends."
"I checked out my Kricketot and learned about its moves. ...It only knows Growl and Bide. That's worse than just challenging! I was about to say that, when my childhood friend stopped me. "Let it hold an Oran Berry so that it can survive while using Bide." Hey, that's smart! That's from a former Bug Catcher! While we're at it, may I have an Oran Berry, too? Next week: "The Diary of a Poké Romantic," episode three! "Love Conquers All: Covering Weakness with Ideas!" We're a Trainer and Pokémon now! We'll get stronger together!"
"I had my first ever Pokémon battle, and it ended badly... My childhood friend, a former Bug Catcher, had this to say... "Pokémon get tougher by battling. The key to victory is type matchups." Type matchups? Types affect battles? The only type matchup I care about is with that Gym Leader! Next week: "The Diary of a Poké Romantic," episode four! "Type Matchups Settle Battles! Moves That Exploit Weak Points!" Fire, Flying, and Rock... Kricketot has some disadvantages!"
"We'd win a battle, and lose one. Lose one, then win one. Though it was at times discouraging, I had to keep battling to toughen us up. With me and Kricketot, it was always three steps forward, two steps back. But we were getting stronger. Then, one day, Kricketot started to shine! Next week: "The Diary of a Poké Romantic," episode five! "Kricketot Becomes Kricketune! Watch Me! I'll Change, Too!" And to cancel Evolution, press the B Button... Tell me that first!"
"After Kricketot evolved, it became stronger as Kricketune. We also got other Pokémon, so we could go farther and farther from home. But where is my beloved Gym Leader? Where is that city he said he's from? I do have the Town Map, but maps baffle me. It doesn't matter, though. If we keep moving, we'll get somewhere. Next week: "The Diary of a Poké Romantic," episode six! "How Is This Possible? Pokémon Gyms Can't Be Found Everywhere!" The more lost you are, the less useful a map becomes! You know it's true!"
"Our journey was long, and it was hard. But no one wants to hear that! So, I finally found my Gym Leader. But he has an incurable disease! He begged me, out of the blue, with his last wish. He asked for my Pokémon! But my Kricketune's my partner! Next week: "The Diary of a Poké Romantic," episode seven! "My Trail of Footprints Shortened the Distance Between Us!" Every time I see Kricketune's face, I am reminded of our time together..."
"My beloved Gym Leader, whom I fought so hard to meet, was a fraud! How dare he con this pure maiden! How dare he toy with my emotions! But whose fault was it? Was it mine for being taken in? All I know is that my tears overflow, and despair is my world... Next week: "The Diary of a Poké Romantic," episode eight! "Kricketune and I! Our Bond Is True!" That Gym Leader's eating a Giga Impact for playing me for a fool!"
"Having defeated the fake Gym Leader, Kricketune and I stood in a daze. We were spent. Drained by a romance that ended in a nightmare. It was then that my childhood friend, the former Bug Catcher, arrived. He did more than that. He confessed his love to me! "I wanted to become an Elite Four member, so I quit as a Gym Leader. But then then, that faker appeared. You took care of him, though!" Wait, ex-Bug Catcher! What? What are you saying?! Next week: "The Diary of a Poké Romantic," final episode! "Do it, Kricketune! Silver Wind over Sinnoh Skies!" You were laughing at me for falling for that fraud, weren't you?"

"Azusa: KONNICHIWA, yo! Are you overflowing with GENKI? It's time for this week's highly anticipated "KOUKAN TALK"! This is today's phrase: "Your Pokémon is cute!" This is a phrase you want to try out! So, what's the right way to say it? "Kawaii Pokémon da ne!" Ka-wah-ii po-kay-mo-n da nay! With this you can flatter that person you like! YATTA! Trading Pokémon internationally is sure great! Tee hee! OK, be sure to watch again! MATA KONDO!"
"Azusa: OSSU, everybody! Are you so GENKI it's causing everyone else trouble? It's time for this week's highly anticipated "KOUKAN TALK"! This is today's phrase: "Where did you come from?" This is handy! You'll want to know where your opponent is from! If you want to say this in Japanese, it's like this! "Doko kara kita no?" Do-ko ka-ra kee-ta no? After that, there's no doubt you'll have fun talking about where you're from! Yeah! OK, so, MATA NE! Bye-bye!"
"Azusa: Yoo-hoo, MINNA! Today I'm a little wound up, so let's get this "KOUKAN TALK" started! This week's phrase is this: "What's your favorite Pokémon?" So what will this sound like in Japanese? "Ichiban suki na Pokémon wa?" Ii-chee-ban su-kee nah po-kay-mo-n wah? Then both of you will know about the other's favorite! By the way, my favorite Pokémon is <lead Pokémon>! OK, see you later! JA NE! Have a good day! Mwah!"
"Azusa: Meowdy, MINNA! It's time for "KOUKAN TALK"! Today's one phrase for communication is this: "Where did you find that?" This phrase can be useful whenever you need it! HAI! So this useful phrase goes like this in Japanese! "Sore doko de mitsuketano?" So-re do-ko de mee-tsu-kay-ta no? When I meet Trainers with a cute <lead Pokémon>, I ask them that right away! So with that, MATA ITSUKA AIMASHO! And adios!"
"Azusa: Hello, MINNA! It's time for "KOUKAN TALK"! This week's phrase is: "Nice meeting you"! Use this when parting with someone you just met! At times like this, I say: "Shiri aete yokatta!" Shee-ree ah-e-te yo-ka ta! It's even better when you say this along with a firm handshake! OK, that's it for today! JA NE!"
"Azusa: OSSU, MINNA! Yesterday, I fell in love with a TOTTEMO KAWAII Pokémon in the Musical! This is what you say at that time! "I became your fan!" After that, I told it this in Japanese. "Anata no fan ni narimashita!" Ah-nah-ta no fa-n nee na-ri-ma-shee-ta! It was cute! So utterly KAWAII! My beloved <lead Pokémon>! Your double-flip jump is just too adorable to be legal! On that note, I'm going to the Musical again today! JA NE!"
"Azusa: HAAAI! For good kids and even kids that are a little bad... It's time for "KOUKAN TALK"! Today's phrase is perfect for when two people's thoughts match up, as if by telepathy! "I was thinking the same thing!" "Chodo onaji koto kangaeteta!" Choh-do o-na-gee ko-to ka-n-ga-eh-te-ta! When I say this, the conversation always picks up steam, and then it can't stop! For that reason, that's it for today! JA MATA NE!"
"Azusa: Hello, MINNA! It's time for "KOUKAN TALK"! Another day, another step closer to mastering global communication! Recently, on the way back from the Musical, someone said this to me: "Your Pokémon looks different!" "Kawatta Pokémon da ne!" Ka-wa ta po-kay-mo-n da nay! I thought it could be a joke, but when I looked at <lead Pokémon>...BIKKURI! It was still wearing Props from the Musical! I forgot to take them off! Oops! That would look strange! HAI! That's it for today! MATA AIMASHOU! See you!"
"Azusa: Hey, MINA-SAN! It's time for "KOUKAN TALK"! Today, I'll teach you this question to ask when you see a Pokémon that you are interested in! "Where did you catch that Pokémon?" "Sono Pokémon doko de tsukamaeta no?" So-no po-kay-mo-n do-ko de tsu-ka-mah-e-ta no? Then you can go catch one for yourself! OK, that's it for today! MINNA, bye-bye!"
"Azusa: ...Ne, Toru? Ninniku no nioi suru? Kinou sa, oishii pasuta tabetanda kedo sa, ninniku ga sugoku kiiteta no yo ne. Iki wo tometeiru no atashi no sei ja nai yo ne? ...Toru? Nande, kyou wa sonna ni shizuka na no? Sonnani niou? Are... Ee? Nani? What?! No way! We're rolling?! H-hello, MINNA! P-please watch "KOUKAN TALK" again, OK? SAYONARA!"
"Toru: Hey, everyone! How ya doin'? Ha ha! Whether you're feeling good or bad, it's time for "KOUKAN TALK"! This week's phrase is: "Check out this Pokémon!" This is like telling someone: Hey, have a look at my Pokémon! It's so cool! Woot woot! When you want to say that in Japanese, say this! "Kono Pokémon mite!" Ko-no po-kay-mo-n mee-te! With this, you can show off your Pokémon to each other, right? OK, thanks for watching this week! MATA KONDO!"
"Toru: Hey hey, is everyone explosively GENKI today?! "KOUKAN TALK" comin' at'cha! Today's single phrase for communication is... "Let me see your Pokédex!" Trainers are always interested in another Trainer's Pokédex! This is what you say in that situation! "Pokémon Zukan misete!" Po-kay-mo-n zu-ka-n mee-say-te! Now you can have a person who speaks Japanese show you their Pokédex! You have that? URAYAMASHII ZE! OK, have a great day! MATA NE! MINNA!"
"Toru: YA! MINNA! Are you enjoying life? It's time for this week's "KOUKAN TALK"! This week's phrase is for asking your excellent Pokémon rival something, yeah! "How many Badges have you got?" "Ikutsu bajji motteru?" Ii-ku-tsu ba ji mo te-ru? YEAH! With this, you can see how far your rival has progressed! Through Pokémon, everyone can be friends and rivals! On that note, I'm going to challenge the Gyms and collect more Badges! MATA NE!"
"Toru: OSSU, MINNA! Today's "KOUKAN TALK" is a liiittle different than usual! Why? Because today I'm having a fantastic day! So what I'm going to teach you in this fantastic mood is this, KORE! "Are you having a good time?" So you're thinking, I want to talk to that person! But what should I say? OK, my hypothetical, shy young man or woman! I have the perfect phrase for you! "Tanoshinderu?" Ta-no-shi-n-de-ru? The perfect conversation starter! Just run with it from here! So that's it for today! See you! MATA NE, MINNA!"
"Toru: OSSU! Recently, I met an UTSUKUSHII woman at a party! The second I saw her, I thought I'd seen her before somewhere. But I couldn't remember her name! So, in this situation, I went up to her, and I said this: "Dokoka de atta koto arukke?" Do-ko-ka de a ta ko-to a-ru keh? It means, "Have we met somewhere?" And what do you think she said to me? "What? I work with you every day. You're not serious, right?" IYA! It was an all-prettied-up Azusa! SHIMATAAA! So, that's it for today's "KOUKAN TALK"! ...I sure hope Azusa will start talking to me again soon!"
"Toru: KONNICHIWA, MINNA! We're getting back to the basics on today's "KOUKAN TALK"! Today, we will introduce a very basic phrase! "Let's trade!" I almost don't need to explain this phrase! Let's translate it! "Koukan shiyou yo!" Ko-o-ka-n shee-yo-o yo! What is important is to have a glint in your eye, like you're really excited! If you communicate your excitement, I'm sure you can make a good trade! So that's it for today! See you, everyone! JA NE!"
"Toru: YA, MINNA! In today's "KOUKAN TALK," I'm going to introduce something that's often said to me. "You're kidding!" There is often a lot of shocking news in my circle of friends. When I said I saw a bright-red <lead Pokémon>, this is what they said to me! "Jodan deshou!" Jo-da-n de-sho-o! You're kidding! I'm serious! I saw a very angry <lead Pokémon>, and its face was bright red! ...Man, I was scared! So that's all for today! MATA KONDO, everyone!"
"Toru: MINNA, KONNICHIWA! In today's "KOUKAN TALK," we're going to teach you an aggressive way to proclaim your future victory! "I'm going to win!" "Katsu zo!" Ka-tsu zo! What is important is to emphasize the "zo!" Be aggressive and show where you stand! For example, saying it through clenched teeth would be really cool. You might not even have to battle! Just declare victory like that, and your opponent might get scared and run away! So that's it for today! Let's meet again! JA NE!"
"Toru: KONNICHI-HELLO! It's "KOUKAN TALK," which gives you great tips for talking in Japanese! Today's phrase is this! "What was that about?!" This is something you spout out without thinking when something unexpected happens! This is how you say it in Japanese! "Nandattendayo!" Na-n-da te-n-da-yo! The point is your expression. If you say this while making an expression that says, "What?" II YO! Well, that's it for today! Please look forward to next week's installment! MATA RAISHU!"
"Toru: Hello, everyone! In today's "KOUKAN TALK," we will teach you the question to end all questions! "What's your hobby?" Use it with people you've just met! Use it with people you've known forever! In Japanese, you say this: "Shumi nani?" Shu-mee nah-nee? That should get the conversation going! Well, that's it for today! Please watch again! MATA KONDO!"

"OK! Hello, everyone! Nancy here! Today, we're visiting Opelucid City's Gym Leader, Drayden! So, let's start with the big question! Why do you spar with your Pokémon? Drayden: Mh hm... It's good to remember that people and Pokémon are both living beings, rather than just the one who gives commands and the one who follows them. It's good for a Pokémon and its Trainer to test their desire to win against each other. Nancy: Ah ha ha! I don't quite get it, but you're very passionate about it! Okaaay! This was Nancy reporting!"
"OK! Hello, everyone! Nancy here! Today, we're visiting Humilau City's Gym Leader, Marlon! Marlon, you're famous for your amazing jumping ability! How can you jump like that? Marlon: Yo! Know a Pokémon called Mantine? While swimmin' on the water's surface, it gets goin' faster and faster and flies clear over the waves like that. I grew up by an ocean all filled up with Mantine. I thought that someday I'd like to jump higher than those Mantine. That's it. Nancy: That's amazing! I guess if you don't realize something is impossible and you just try, sometimes you can actually pull it off! OK! This was Nancy reporting!"

It just doesn't understand how they show trust and affection! Paul: Yup! As you can see, this Patrat is totally friendly and playful now! You just have to communicate that you're a trustworthy Trainer! Narrator: Well done, Paul! And now for a test. We've prepared 100 Gurdurr to see if you really could protect Patrat from them! Paul: What? Hey, wait a minute! Aww! Patrat is staring right at me with a pleading look in its eyes... OK. OK! You got it, buddy! I'll do my best to protect you! Bring 'em on! Hi-yaaah!"
"Narrator: On "The Pokémon Whisperer," Pokémon with many different problems are brought to Pokémon Breeder Paul, who works to build a good relationship. Today's problem Pokémon is a young Timburr! It's causing trouble for its Trainer by rebelling at every opportunity... When Paul goes to meet Timburr, he finds it in a ruined room. Paul: Did you trash everything? Heh heh... I get it!

"Narrator: On this episode of "The Pokémon Whisperer," we will finish the story of Taming Timburr! Last time, Paul was approaching Timburr to talk when it walloped him with its wooden beam. This is his response... Paul: Hey, that really hurt! Narrator: Between sobs, he takes a swing at Timburr, and they start to battle! Their fight continues into the next morning. Paul: Whew! Got that out of our systems! Hey, how about going to the ocean? Narrator: Timburr calmly accepts the invitation. Paul: C'mon! Face the ocean and shout! The answer you're looking for is there! Narrator: The two of them shout at the sea to their hearts' content. By fighting with Paul and yelling at the sea, Timburr was able to get rid of its pent-up frustrations.

"Narrator: On "The Pokémon Whisperer," Pokémon with many different problems are brought to Pokémon Breeder Paul, who works to build a good relationship.

Was your relationship really that wonderful? ...Chin up! There are other possibilities out there! I've got it! Let's go to the swamp to find you a new love!

Narrator: Stunfisk professes its affection again...and is rejected once more! Stunfisk: Uuuuunnn! Narrator: But in the process, Stunfisk made a decision and acted on it without fear of being hurt. Paul: Wow. That was really brave... and Stunfisk looked so cool! This time, I feel like I'm the one who learned a lot!"
"Narrator: On "The Pokémon Whisperer," Pokémon with many different problems are brought to Pokémon Breeder Paul, who works to build a good relationship. Today's problem Pokémon is a runaway Audino! Since it can tell how people feel, it can also detect bad things, and it no longer trusts people. Wanting to teach it that people aren't all that bad, Paul sets off in search of Audino! Paul: Audino! Where are you? Narrator: Paul searches deserts, cities, even the depths of the ocean, but is unable to find it... Paul: Oh! What's that? Narrator: Finally, Paul finds Audino in the depths of the forest! But in his excitement, Paul makes a terrible mistake... We'll continue the story of What Audino Wants next time!"
"Narrator: On this episode of "The Pokémon Whisperer," the story of What Audino Wants continues! Paul finally finds the runaway Audino and tries to talk to it... Paul: I know you can sense negative things about people, and that's what scared you away! But there are so many good things about people, too! Please give us another chance! Narrator: Startled by Paul's shouting, Audino runs away again! That's right! Because Audino have such good hearing, they dislike loud noises... and Paul has a hard time talking quietly! Paul: Guess that was a bad idea, huh... Narrator: Paul's usual way of doing things won't work this time! How will he communicate his feelings to Audino? Watch next week for the conclusion to What Audino Wants, and find out how Paul solves this dilemma!"
"Narrator: On this episode of "The Pokémon Whisperer," it's the conclusion of What Audino Wants! A worried Paul searches once again for a runaway Audino, after scaring it away by shouting. Paul: This is so hard! How can I communicate to Audino without shouting? I want to tell it so many things! Narrator: After a long journey, he finds Audino in a cave deep in the mountains. With a great effort, he manages not to shout about his feelings. Instead, he runs up to Audino and gives it a big hug! Paul: Audino... Narrator: Audino can sense people's feelings. When it senses Paul's intense, sincere caring for Pokémon, its distrust of humans melts away... Paul: That's right! If you sincerely care about Pokémon, they will understand even if you don't use words! It's your feelings that are important!"
"Narrator: On today's special episode of "The Pokémon Whisperer," the dedicated Pokémon Breeder Paul talks about special techniques for getting along with Pokémon! This is a must-watch episode for all Trainers! Paul: Let's begin right away! When you meet a Pokémon, these things are very important! Tip 1: Talk loudly! Tip 2: Act sincerely! Tip 3: Capture its interest! Tip 4: Open up to it! With these techniques, any Pokémon will hop into the Poké Ball you throw with just one try! Remember these tips with "TACO."

"Narrator: On today's special episode of "The Pokémon Whisperer," the dedicated Pokémon Breeder Paul talks about how to raise Pokémon. These tips will help get any Pokémon on the road to success. Paul: Take good notes! First, gently let the Pokémon out of the Poké Ball! Then loudly tell it how much you enjoy its company! Shouting is best! That's it! Just repeat this 30 times a day!

"Nadia: Ciao! My name is Nadia. I'm a Rising Star! What I have in my Bag today is Luminous Moss. Luminous Moss is a very fresh item! When a Pokémon that holds it is hit by a Water-type move, Special Defense goes up. I wish it had the same effect on me, too...

"Nadia: Ciao! My name is Nadia. I'm a Rising Star! What I have in my Bag today is a Destiny Knot. A Destiny Knot is a very lovely item! When Attract is used on a Pokémon that holds it and the Pokémon becomes infatuated, it can make the attacker infatuated, too. I wish it had the same effect on me... Then my friend would fall in love with... Oh, but he has to use Attract first. In that case, I'll use Trick to swap items first, then... Oh no... Where did my Destiny Knot go?"

"Nadia: Ciao! My name is Nadia. I'm a Rising Star! What I have in my Bag today is an Assault Vest. An Assault Vest is a very aggressive item! A Pokémon that holds it can't use status moves, but its Special Defense goes up! I wish it had the same effect on me, too... Then I would make a move on my friend without being afraid of the status change! And even if he turned me down, I would endure with my Special Defense. What? That's not goo-oo-ood! I don't like it at all! Haha. ♪ Let's have a great day, everybody!"
"Nadia: Ciao! My name is Nadia. I'm a Rising Star! What I have in my Bag today is a Cleanse Tag. A Cleanse Tag is a very spiritual item! Let your lead Pokémon hold it, and you won't encounter wild Pokémon very much! I wish it had the same effect on me, too...

Haha. ♪ Let's have a great day, everybody!"
"Nadia: Ciao! My name is Nadia. I'm a Rising Star! What I have in my Bag today is a Weakness Policy. A Weakness Policy is a very reassuring item!

Trouble Talk

Broadcast in ORAS Trouble Talk is a program hosted by Roman mainly for giving advice to teens who send in troubles. In response to each letter, Roman would mention a Gym Leader to support his answer.

"Roman: 'Suuuuuup, y'all! It's time for me to help all y'all troubled teens with your traumas, like, totally! It's Trouble Talk time! Lessee... Our letter today is from "Pretty Wurmple." Yo, thanks for watching, Pretty Wurmple! Now whatta we got here... "I love stroking my Wurmple along its belly. You know, it's just amazing! Depending on where and when you catch one, it totally changes how glossy it is and how it feels! Totally! Don't you think that's mysterious? But if I try to talk to my friends about any of this, they say I'm strange... Am I really just a weirdo?" Roman: My answer is... No way, José! It's awesome to have something you really love. You know Roxanne, who's the Gym Leader in Rustboro City? That girl loves Fossils so much she runs around Hoenn with a hammer in her hand, excavating everything in sight! She's even been written up in specialist magazines a whole bunch of times! It's cool to focus on the thing you love like that! Go for it, future Bug-type professor! I'll be your number-one fan! See ya!"
"Roman: 'Suuuuuup, y'all! It's time for me to help all y'all troubled teens with your traumas, like totally! It's Trouble Talk time! Lessee... Our letter today comes from "Shooting for the Stars." Yo, thanks for watching, Shooting for the Stars! Now whatta we got here... "I want to get buff and look cool so all the girls will like me! Tell me a cool-looking sport to do!" Roman: Whoa, whoa, whoa! You are some kinda shallow guy! But, hey, I never said I didn't like it! So, uh, lemme see... Have you thought about surfing? Yo, tons of cool surfing spots around Dewford, here in Hoenn. They say that Gym Leader Brawly moved from Kanto 'cause you can surf all year! Brawly loves it, and he's sure got one ripped body, so I think it'll make you fit and buff, little dude! Whether girls will like you, though, that's really up to you! See ya!"
"Roman: 'Suuuuuup, y'all! It's time for me to help all y'all troubled teens with your traumas, like totally! It's Trouble Talk time! Lessee... Today, our letter's from "Feeling Cramped." Yo, thanks for watching, Feeling Cramped! Now whatta we got here... "Sharing a room with my little brother is getting to be pretty tough lately. Our house is too small for me to get a room of my own. How can I make this more bearable?" Roman: Whoa. That's a tough one, all right! How about you rearrange the furniture to make sort of a wall between the two of you? Gym Leader Wattson—man, is he amazing— traveled all over the world and learned all kinds of city-planning things, and he used 'em to make Mauville two stories tall! Counting the roof, he tripled the area of the city. And the population has QUADRUPLED! Maybe you can make smart use of your vertical space like he did! If that doesn't work, plan on spending a lot of time in your Secret Base, I guess! See ya!"
"Roman: 'Suuuuuup, y'all! It's time for me to help all y'all troubled teens with your traumas, like totally! It's Trouble Talk time! Lessee... Today, our letter's from "Ma Chérie Macherie." Yo, thanks for watching, Ma Chérie Macherie! Now whatta we got here... "Every morning I check myself out in the mirror. Today I discovered a huge pimple on my face! I can't be seen with a pimple on my forehead! I am Lisia's number-one rival—destined to be a great Contest Spectacular star! It's a disaster! It's totally unacceptable! Can you give me an effective beauty treatment to prevent further tragedies?" Roman: I feel the searing pain in this letter! Speaking of searing, maybe heat would help. Have you tried going to hot springs? That new Gym Leader Flannery goes in the hot springs every day, and she's never had a single skin problem, according to interviews. But really, the most important things have gotta be a balanced diet and enough sleep. I'm backing you all the way, so hold on tight to your dreams! See ya!"
"Roman: 'Suuuuuup, y'all! It's time for me to help all y'all troubled teens with your traumas, like totally! It's Trouble Talk time! Lessee... Our letter today comes from "Special Ball." Yo, thanks for watching, Special Ball! Now whatta we got here... "I'm applying for college soon, but I don't know what to major in. I want to study both battling and Pokémon research, and I can't pick just one!" Roman: Whoaaa... You are one hardworking kid! I know 'cause I hated to study anything! I really admire you, you know? Say... Professor Birch and the Petalburg Gym Leader, that new guy Norman, went to college together. If you could find a place like the one they went to, you could study both battling and Pokémon research! But it's crazy to ask me about something big like this! Talk to your guidance counselor! Good luck with your applications, and I'll keep my fingers crossed for you! See ya!"
"Roman: 'Suuuuuup, y'all! It's time for me to help all y'all troubled teens with your traumas, like totally! It's Trouble Talk time! Lessee... Today, we'll look at a letter from "I Love Roselia." Yo, thanks for watching, I Love Roselia! Now whatta we got here... "I'm going on holiday in Hoenn next month with some friends of mine! Please recommend a city where we can really experience nature to the max!" Roman: Ooooh! Thanks for thinking of Hoenn. We'd love to see you! Check out somewhere like Fortree! Staying in their tree houses feels like camping! Oh, and maybe a tour with Winona, where she takes you to observe the wild bird Pokémon in the area! Winona can tell you everything about 'em, so you'll really learn a lot! Have a great trip, and we look forward to hosting you in Hoenn! See ya!"
"Roman: 'Suuuuuup, y'all! It's time for me to help all y'all troubled teens with your traumas, like totally! It's Trouble Talk time! Lessee... Today we hear from "Ultra Plusle." Yo, thanks for watching, Ultra Plusle! Now whatta we got here... "My little sister and I don't get along. We fight all the time, but I'm always the one who gets in trouble from our mom. What can I do?" Roman: Whoa-ho-ho! Siblings fighting, huh? Yeah, it happens. I've got a little brother, too, so I know eeeee-zackly what you mean, friend! How about this? You know the Gym Leaders in Mossdeep, Liza and Tate? Fact is, those two are complete opposites when it comes to personality and tastes and whatnot! Tate is a calm kid and loves to eat sweets, while rambunctious Liza loves spicy food! That's just how they are! But they each rely on the other's strengths to the fullest in Double Battles! Spending time with someone who likes different stuff than you is a chance to experience more and have a richer life! Sorry for dropping philosophy on you, but together, you can both grow more! See ya!"
"Roman: 'Suuuuuup, y'all! It's time for me to help all y'all troubled teens with your traumas, like totally! It's Trouble Talk time! Lessee... Today's letter comes from "Rainbow Soda." Yo, thanks for watching, Rainbow Soda! Now whatta we got here... "I want to ask out a girl I like, but where's a good place for a date?" Roman: Smoooooth! Young love, huh? I've got it! The hottest date spot these days has gotta be Sootopolis City! Rumor has it that any couple who watches the water illusion show that Wallace puts on with his Luvdisc will be together forever! Strictly a rumor, of course. Wallace only does those shows when he feels like it, so there's no guarantee you and your would-be sweetie can catch one... Guess you'll have to trust to luck! I've got my fingers crossed for you! See ya next time!"
