"H-here...I go..."
  • In battle
Upon sending out his last Pokémon: "My very last Pokémon... How lonely... How frightening..."
Upon Gigantamaxing Gengar: "Gengar... Gigantamax... Swallow everything in darkness..."
Upon first using Gengar's G-Max Terror: "G-Max Terror... It's like Shadow Tag... You won't get away... I won't let you!"
Upon being defeated: "I nearly lost my mask from the shock... That I can see your skill for what it is."
  • After being defeated

"Here... A Ghost Badge..."
"G...good luck!"

"My mask... It feels like it's going to fall off..."
  • Before battle
"...'M Allister."
"...You look well."
"I remember you..."
"You were the strongest Gym Challenger I had."
"Er... so I reckon... we sh-should battle!"
  • In battle
After sending out first Pokémon: "Everyone's looking... I want to hide... but I'll fight!"
Upon being defeated: "Maybe my mask... kept me from seeing just how strong you really are..."
  • After being defeated
"...That was ace."
"G-give it your best out there."
"I'm mad about strong Trainers..."
  • During Champion Cup rematches

  • In battle
Upon being defeated: "I'm glad I had my mask... I was making quite the face just now..."
  • After being defeated

Stow-on-Side Stadium

"...Oh. You."
"You came to help me?"
"The people got all out..."
"But I'm the Gym Leader..."
"I'll... battle the Dynamax Pokémon!"
"That'd... That'd be brilliant, thanks!"
"There's loads of 'em... I hope everyone can take one each. Please!"
"...Let's go!"
"...Th-Thanks. A lot."
"The Pokémon have all calmed down."
"They can rest here... They should be fine in time..."
"<Player>... Here... My League Card."
"...Y-you can leave things here to me."
"I-I'd rather you go help those who need you!"
Isle of Armor
  • When first spoken to
"...O-oh, <player>! What are you...doing here?"
"...Oh, training? Mm... Yeah, you can focus here. ...Since there are no people."
"...I-I sometimes see a massive Pokémon across the water. ...Maybe it's D-Dynamaxing?"
"...This place feels nothing like Glimwood Tangle. Th-though it's about as easy to get lost in..."
"...Th-this area's so steep and rugged, it reminds me of Stow-on-Side. ...T-take care not to fall. We don't know each other that well yet..."
"Eep! ...Er, <player>? B-behind you... Ah, er, nothing... It's nothing too bad...relatively speaking."
"I...I can hear so many voices from the sea... Do you think they're all lonely?"
"...I'm b-building a little mountain of sand. Apparently if one absorbs enough grudges, it can become a Pokémon..."
"...Quite a h-hot one today, isn't it? It's getting all sweaty underneath my mask. That really...dampens my spirits..."
  • During overcast conditions
"...It's so dark, with the sky wrapped up in all these thick black clouds. Honestly, it's a bit of a relief..."
  • During rain or thunderstorms
"...Er...would you...ahh? Would to hear a scary story that's got to do with rain?"
"...Wh-when I'm wearing my mask, even sandstorms aren't much of a bother. Maybe I should have Gengar and the rest wear masks, too..."
"I-I've made a big discovery! When I can't see my opponent through the fog, I hardly get nervous at all!"

"N-nothing too scary... Just enough to make it fun for the participants and the ghost Pokémon..."
"I was really do something n-nice for all the ghost Pokémon..."
"And I... I wasn't really paying attention... and I lost my mask somewhere along the way..."
"I've got loads of spares... Spare masks, I mean. B-but I couldn't leave to go and get them..."
"I'm... I'm show my face to other people without my mask on..."
"N-no way..."
"Y-yeah... Gengar could tell how frightened I was to leave this room..."
"So I think he ran off with the other ghost Pokémon t-to chase away all the participants."

"They were doing it for my sake... Please don't hate them..."

Story Event - Otherworldly Encounter
  • Star of the Night
  • Wearing his fall outfit
"I-I wonder if we can eat it all..."
"Wha–?! Oh no..."
"W-well... Today, ghost Pokémon are getting a chance to be in the spotlight..."
"And I also wanted to get closer with Gourgeist, so I put a lot of effort into this costume!"
"Did you know Gourgeist can be different sizes?"
"And their strengths can differ, too."
"I want my Gourgeist to make use of what he's good at..."
"And I want us to be a sync pair that can support each other..."
"Small Gourgeist pretend to be children. That's how they fool you and get your guard down."
"Large Gourgeist put on the guise of adults, and that's how they lead kids away..."
  • Off-screen
"And a supersized Gourgeist like my partner..."
"can FORCEFULLY drag you away!"
  • On-screen
"Maybe it came from another world and was attracted to the city since it's filled with ghost Pokémon."
"A-are you a ghost from the other side that got lost in this world?"
"Oh! W-wait!"
"S-sure... I guess we shouldn't leave her alone."
  • Seeking Mysteries
"A secret organization?"
"Th-the monster! It tried to attack you!"
  • Mystery Monster Unmasked
"I'm not sure. It doesn't look like a ghost Pokémon..."
"So were you the one telling people in the city not to talk about it?"
"I-if you don't mind, I'd like that, too."
"I think it's normal for creatures from different worlds to find each other scary, but..."
"I think it's sad to push someone away just because of that."
  • Poipole's Chosen Path
  • Off-screen, as "???"
"Oh! Um..."
  • After appearing, as Allister
"Since you're already here... D-do you want to join our team?"

"But today is a special day for ghost Pokémon."
"And since you like ghost Pokémon, I thought it would be nice..."
"M-me too!"
"I enjoyed spending time with...everyone."
Special Event - Electricity Disruptors
  • If spoken to
"...Oh. Hi."
"It's nice and relaxing in the dark..."
Sync Pair Story - A Day with Allister
"Gengar... Gigantamax... Swallow everything in darkness..."
"Phew... I guess that's all for today."
"Oh... Thank goodness... I thought you were a stranger for a moment there..."
"H-huh? What am I doing here? Well...I was training with Gengar. This cave is perfect for it."
"I-I'm not good with strangers...and Gengar could swallow people up when he's Gigantamaxed..."
Spooky!: "They say a Gengar's mouth becomes a passage to the afterlife when it's Gigantamaxed."
What would happen then?: "This is just a rumor, but they say a Gengar's mouth becomes a passage to the afterlife when it's Gigantamaxed..."
"The afterworld, the spectral plane... There are many names for it..."
"But I know it exists, because I've been there before."
"When I was four years old, I was badly hurt in an accident and found myself wandering near death's doorstep..."
"I think Pokémon led me back to the world of the living..."
"And perhaps I came back through a Gigantamax Gengar's mouth."
"At least...that's what I believe."
"Ever since that accident, ghost Pokémon started following me around."
You're not scared of them?: "W-well... Not really."
Sounds like a party!: "Yeah, s-some of them like to play tricks on people, so it's actually kind of fun."
"Lots of people might think that ghost Pokémon are scary..."
"But really, the reason why they spook people is because they're scared, too!"
"They're living in a world they're not originally from, so they have to follow different rules... Being different can be scary, after all."
"That's probably why they like to stay invisible and only come out at night... Because they're scared of humans."
"I can tell...because I'm like that, too..."
"But I also want to learn from all the sync pairs here on Pasio."
"I want to face my fears together with Gengar."
"S-so, um...if you don't mind...would you help us out?"
Of course!: "Th-thank you! Knowing you'll be with us makes me feel better already!"
Sure, if that's what you want!: "Th-thanks! I...I want to be more like you and make more friends from now on!"

"Swallow everything in darkness..."
  • During sync background preview (Fall 2022)
"Do you think people will see the strength of Ghost-type Pokémon?"
  • Random conversation
"Have you heard of Gigantamax?"
"In Galar, it makes certain Pokémon change their appearance when they Dynamax."
"B-but I've heard that, for some reason, it happens on Pasio, too... I was so shocked to learn that, my mask nearly fell off..."
  • Random conversation
"... ... ..."
"D-don't look at me so intensely... I don't like when people st-stare at me..."
"I always wear my mask, even at my Gym... There are so many strangers here on Pasio, I don't think I'll ever be able to take it off..."
  • Random conversation
"People often ask me whether it's scary to be around ghost Pokémon all the time..."
"But to me, people are way scarier..."
"You seem fine even when you're surrounded by lots of people... I don't know how you do it."
  • Random conversation
"Did you know that while a Gengar is Gigantamaxed, its mouth is a passage to the afterlife?"
"I nearly died once when I was young..."
"Sometimes I wonder if perhaps I came back through a Gengar's mouth."
  • Random conversation
"I-I'm scared of people looking at me, so I always need to wear my mask..."
"But I'm OK with you seeing my face, <player>."
  • Random conversation
"P-people think I'm scary because I can see what they can't..."
"Y-you think it's cool? Like it makes you shiver?"
" you really do think it's cool that I can see things? Th-that's not usually what people say..."
  • If spoken to again
"It can be hard to relate to someone like me who can see things that others can't..."
"But thank you for trying to understand..."
  • Random conversation
"Battles on Pasio can get so intense, I sometimes drop and shatter my mask during battle..."
"But that's OK..."
"B-because I've got a spare...and a spare for that spare, and so forth... All in all, I've got about a hundred backup masks..."
"I-if you'd like, I can give one to you."
  • If spoken to again
"Maybe if you wear one of my masks, you'll come to like Ghost-type Pokémon as much as I do..."
"And then...we could be even better friends..."
  • Random conversation (Fall 2022)
"S-seems like pumpkins are a must at the night festivals..."

  • Random conversation (Fall 2022)
"I was a bit scared to go to a festival with so many people..."
"But Gourgeist and Gengar looked like they were having so much fun battling..."
"And they were happily eating sweets... So I'm glad I went."
  • Random conversation (Fall 2022)
"I can't take my mask off, so I decided to dress up by making it look like a pumpkin..."
"When I put this mask on, it makes me feel confident, like Gourgeist..."
"Or at least I wish that were the case..."
  • Random conversation (Fall 2022)
"I can hear people's voices coming from Gourgeist's torso..."
"And I feel as if those voices get even louder during festivals..."
"Maybe everyone wants to join the festival..."
  • Random conversation (Fall 2022)
"Gourgeist looks at you a lot, <player>..."
"Maybe he wants you to join us..."
"Oh, don't worry! I meant that I think he wants you to dress up like me..."
  • Random conversation (Fall 2022)
"Surprisingly, there are a lot of ghost Pokémon that try to take humans to the afterlife..."
"But Pokémon are Pokémon, so if they try to take you..."
"they might let you go if you offer them a lot of sweets..."
  • If spoken to again
"And if you want to collect loads of sweets, you've got to win many battles..."
"Ah, but the Pokémon might eat them as you're collecting them..."
  • Random conversation (Fall 2022)
"I-if Gourgeist and I do well..."
"Do you think people will see the strength of ghost Pokémon?"
"If that's the case, I'm gonna give it my all!"
  • If spoken to again
