Cilan: "Welcome to the Striaton City Pokémon Gym."
Chili: "I'm Chili! I light things up with Fire-type Pokémon!"
Cress: "I'm a Water-type specialist, and my name is Cress. Pleased to make your acquaintance."
Cilan: "And my name is Cilan. I like Grass-type Pokémon."
Cilan: "Um, you see... As for why the three of us, um, are all here is, well, er..."
Chili: "Oh, enough! Listen up! The three of us will decide whom you'll battle! It'll be based on the type of the first Pokémon you chose!"
Cress: "That is indeed the case. And the partner you first chose was <type> type, it seems."
"How exceedingly lucky for you that you do not have to face me."
"That is correct! It shall be I and my esteemed Water types that you must face in battle!"
  • Before battle
"What incredible luck for you--you get to battle the best among the three of us."
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"I see... That might be a good attack."
  • After sending out last Pokémon
"I'll put all my hopes on my last Pokémon!"
  • Being defeated
"Lose? Me? I don't believe this."
  • After being defeated
"Why, you're quite remarkable. It's the Pokémon League's rule, so--please take this Badge."
  • After the battle (regardless of first partner Pokémon)
"If there were 17 siblings in the Striaton City Gym... There could be a specialist for each type of Pokémon."
  • Post-game
"...We heard about the incident with N's Castle. If we had received the message in time, the three of us could have helped."

Badge Case

The fundamentals of Pokémon battling are type matchups! They're important!

(After speaking to the other brothers) "A day that's important to me, Cress..."
  • Striaton Trainers' School - Flashback
"I guess you're right."
"You're overthinking it, but I can't say the possibility is zero."
"Based on your appearance, you must be the Shadow Triad. But why are you here?"
"We have to admit it. The three Leaders of Striaton City make one full-fledged Trainer."
"Of course, I, Cress, was thinking about that, too."
"OK. So as for the replacement Gym Leader..."
  • End of flashback (if initiated by Cress)
"Part of my past I want to forget... No, I mustn't forget it."

"Lose? Me? I don't believe this."
  • If the player is defeated
"This is the appropriate result when I'm your opponent."
  • After being defeated
"How amazing! Even if there were a lot of reasons, you managed to defeat someone as impressive as me!"
  • After winning
"How amazing! Even if there were a lot of reasons, you managed to take on someone as impressive as me!"
  • In the lobby, after the tournament
"The pairings for the tournament partly contributed to your victory. Please keep training. I plan on retraining myself with the aim of defeating you after you've become even stronger."

Striaton City - Striaton Restaurant

  • Asking to team up
(first visit)"I'm a Water-type specialist, and my name is Cress. Pleased to make your acquaintance. You there. Would you be so kind as to be my partner in a battle with my siblings?"
(subsequent visits)"What do you think? Will you partner up with me and compete with my siblings?"
No: "Oh, what's this? I'm amazed you turned me, Cress, down."
Yes: "That's wonderful. With me, Cress, as your partner, victory is assured."
  • Before battle
"That is correct! It shall be I and my esteemed Water types that you must face in battle! Let's us begin, then! In garde, user of Grass-type Pokémon -- Cilan -- and of Fire-type Pokémon -- Chili!"
  • After battle (victorious)
(on stage)"My attacks flow like water. You were blessed with an amazing partner."
(main area)"Battling together with you helped me find new potential in myself. That's what I think. I'd like it if you were to team up with me tomorrow as well."
  • If loses to the player
"Lose? Me? I don't believe this!"
  • After battle (loses to the player)
"Losing made me realize something. If I were to team up with you, our onslaught would be like a torrent!"
