Game credits

In-game cameo appearance

In Black, White, Black 2, and White 2, Morimoto appears in Castelia City in the Game Freak building. He will battle the player once per day, although in Black and White, the player must have entered the Hall of Fame before this is possible. He uses the Veteran sprite.

In Sun and Moon, Morimoto returns as a Trainer the player can battle in the Game Freak office in Heahea City. Like in Black and White, the player must have become Champion before they can battle him, he can be battled once per day, and he shares his appearance with male Veterans. Morimoto will heal the player's Pokémon after defeating him, and after defeating him for the first time, he will give the player an Oval Charm.

Quotes

Pokémon Black and White

  • Before entering the Hall of Fame
"A tip for getting strong in Pokémon battles... Let me guess. I guess the most important thing is... having a lot of battles! If you become very strong, come back and have a Pokémon battle with me!"
  • Before battle
"Oh! You've become strong! I can tell. Do you want to have a battle with me?"
No: "No? I've been raising Pokémon, thinking about their Abilities and just the right combination of held items. What a pity..."
Yes: "Well, let's begin!"
  • Being defeated
"After all, I am the strongest and greatest. Just kidding!"
  • After being defeated
"You think about battles very thoroughly. I lost, but I learned a lot from you. Besides, it was fun! Come back again tomorrow."
