  • Before battle
"Well met, young challenger! Verily am I the Elite Four's famed blade of hardened Steel, Wikstrom! With my magnificent Pokémon at my side, I will reveal the scope of Trainer achievement! Let us both give our word that our contest shall be fair and honorable. Ready? En garde!"
  • Upon being defeated
"Glorious! The trust that you share with your honorable Pokémon surpasses even mine!"
  • After being defeated
"What now? What sweet, glorious pain and joy now rock my mighty heart? My will, which even shakes spears, trembles at so fine a battle as this! I am undone! Good sir/lady, you are indeed our equal-- and worthy to enter this lofty hall!"
If battled first: "Easy, child. You need not explain. It is no mystery to me why you came to me first. Nature herself has framed man as such a creature that any would choose to face their strongest enemy before all others. Now, to the elevator with you! It burns with a desire to hasten you on your way!"
If battled second: "So you have struck down two of the Elite Four! The road is still long. Do not waver now."
If battled third: "Is your heart prepared for this? One last wall remains before you. You would do well to remember: defeat us, and then you will face the Champion in battle!"
If battled last: "The time has come at last for your greatest challenge. Now show our Champion the same strength you have shown us!"

  • Before battle
"Well met, young challenger! Verily am I the famed blade of hardened steel, Duke Wikstrom! Let the battle begin! En garde!"
  • Upon being defeated
"Glorious! The trust that you share with your honorable Pokémon surpasses even mine!"
  • After being defeated
If giving the player an item: "Do accept this token of my regard. Long has this treasure been held by the esteemed knights of my family... Verily has it been our most treasured possession, since I happened to pick it up in a shop a week ago. Or two weeks, mayhap! May it serve you well."
"What manner of disaster be this? My heart, it doth hammer ceaselessly in my breast! At last do I understand that sweet torture, that perfect balance of joy and frustration!"
  • If the player is defeated
"What manner of magic is this? My heart, it doth hammer ceaselessly in my breast! Winning against such a worthy opponent doth give my soul wings--thus do I soar!"

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Wikstrom debuts in Malamar Traps. He first appears as a fantasy when Diantha informed Korrina about each of the Kalos Elite Four. He later debuts in person alongside Drasna, where he assists X and Y's group in their quest to stop Team Flare. With his Probopass's magnetic abilities, Wikstrom created guides in the road to help X's group travel to Team Flare's hiding place. Later, Wikstrom battles against members of Team Flare at Route 20.

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


Wikstrom's Probopass
Probopass is Wikstrom's only known Pokémon. It was first used to help X and his friends on their way to Team Flare's hiding place. By using its magnetism to pull ore from the ground, Probopass made guides in the road to lead X and his friends on their way.

Probopass's only known move is Magnet Bomb.
