"You again? Please."
"Oh? Are you here to challenge me? Don’t test me."
"Are you the best that Candela and her little friends could find?"
"Tch... How dare riffraff such as yourself speak to me?"
"Only a fool would challenge me."
"Team GO Rocket’s domination is inevitable. Submit and you may be spared."
"Pokémon are our tools. We are entitled to power them up as we so choose. Commoners such as yourself would never understand."
"My sole purpose in life is to win. I’ll vanquish whoever dares to get in my way."
"Oh, do YOU think you can beat me? Someone of your standing? Hah!"
"What a fool you are to even think of battling me."
"Pokémon are my tools, and winning is my birthright. Get in my way, and you’ll be crushed, vermin."
  • GO Fest 2020:
"Today, this event. Tomorrow, the world!"
"Now that we’ve taken over your little celebration, I bet Candela is worried. Good."
"Seeing this confetti rain down and all my hard work pay off... It reignites my passion to defeat you!"

"Don’t you have something better to do? Ugh."
Before battle
"Let's make this quick. I'm busy."
"Why do you insist on wasting my time?"
"Well, if you insist on battling, as a Trainer, I must accept. However, you will pay for inconveniencing me."
"You have such an air of arrogance about you. Allow me to dispel it for you."
"Your insolence disgusts me. I’ll make sure your confidence is utterly shattered following this battle."
"Your sense of self-importance sickens me. Are you prepared to be wholly humiliated?"
"Your arrogance will be your downfall, and I shall be the one to set that in motion."
"Loss is not a concept I’m acquainted with. I don’t expect that will change after this battle."
"A person of your stature shouldn’t be this confident. Fret not—I’ll do you the honor of teaching you this lesson."
"Usually I wouldn’t consider debasing myself by battling a commoner...but I’ll make an exception to humiliate you."
"You lack the gravitas to be in the presence of Team GO Rocket. I’ll finish this quickly."
  • GO Fest 2020:
"We’ve taken over your celebration, and you still insist on challenging me? Get ready to face the harsh reality."
"Your festival is in the hands of Team GO Rocket now. You cannot defeat us."
"I’ll defeat you quickly so I can return to the take-over festivities."

"Don’t think we’re friends now."
Upon victory
"You could never hope to overcome my power. And soon, I’ll be even more powerful..."
"Don’t be too disappointed. It was always going to end like this."
"I never lose. Now get out of my sight."
"If this is the best Candela and her little friends can offer, Team GO Rocket has nothing to worry about."
"If the rest of the Trainers of this world are like you, then Team GO Rocket’s success is assured."
"It was foolish of you to think you could beat me. It’s because of my brilliance that we have Shadow Pokémon!"
  • GO Fest 2020:
"Look at me—I want to take a picture of this moment so I can revel in your disappointment later."
"If only Candela could see me now. We’ve taken over your celebration, and now I’ve defeated you!"
"Isn’t this confetti beautiful?"
  • Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn - Las Vegas
"A foregone conclusion."
Upon being defeated
"Tch... Just wait until you and Candela see what I have in store next..."
" can this be? I...I never lose!"
"How dare you...humiliate me like this?"
"I haven’t felt this much humiliation since I lost my battle with Candela... You’ll pay for this."
"The last person to humiliate me like this was Candela. You’ll all pay for this..."
"I...I don’t understand... I never lose..."
  • GO Fest 2020:
"I was supposed to win! Everything went perfectly for our take-over!"
"This take-over was supposed to be my biggest event of the year. How dare you humiliate me like this!"
"This confetti now just reminds me of my failure. This won’t be the last you see of me..."
  • Pokémon GO Tour: Hoenn - Las Vegas
"That win didn’t count. Now get going already!"

"Appraise your Pokémon? I see you recognize my expertise."

L: "That’s a large <Pokémon>. What else do you want me to say?"
XL: "Pretty big <Pokémon>. I’m almost impressed."

"I can’t believe I’m being forced to work with one of Candela’s friends. Unbelievable. As if I need help. "
"But even I know better than to disobey Giovanni, so there’s no worming my way out of this one."
"Just be grateful I’m giving you my time. For the record, I’m more than capable of handling this alone."
"In fact, I’ve already come up with a plan to restrain Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon. All that’s left for you to do is follow my orders."
"First, we’re going to inspect the locations where Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon have appeared. I’m putting you in charge of recording any anomalies you see in the area. "
"Well? You heard me, did you not? Time to go."
  • 3/6 (if the player is a member of Team Valor)
"I’ll acknowledge you have some skill with a camera."
"*sigh* Thank you, whatever your name was. This’ll do."
"Now I have enough information to move on with my investigation of Primal Reversion."
"You look confused. Did that professor of yours never teach you about Primal Reversion?"
"I bet you’re thinking that if Candela were here, she could explain it. Unfortunately for you, I’m your leader for today."
"Hmph... Fine. I’ll humor you with an explanation, if only to prove that I know more than both Candela and your professor about the subject."
"Primal Reversion is a phenomenon where Kyogre and Groudon can transform when they absorb massive amounts of energy from nature. It’s similar to Mega Evolution, and it grants them incredible power and strength. You follow?"
"Did you just...thank me? Er. Gratitude won’t get you anywhere, you know."
"I’ll admit I’m not hating this alliance as much as I’d expected... But don’t push your luck."
  • 5/6 (if the player is a member of Team Valor)
"Acceptable work. You’ve actually managed to calm Primal Kyogre and Primal Groudon."
"And what do you have there? Let me see it."
"This looks similar to Mega Energy. Could it be...nature’s energy distilled?"
"Interesting. Fascinating, even. Now I have what I need. With this new power source, Team GO Rocket—no, I, Arlo—will be able to control the very shape of the earth."
"But even without that power, there’s one thing I can rid myself of right now."
"You. Farewell, friend of Candela. This alliance is over."
