In the core series

Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

New Bark Town
  • After the player gets a starter
"<Player>! So you picked... a Chikorita/Cyndaquil/Totodile! That's a cute Pokémon you have! When you walk with it, it'll become more friendly. You should turn around and talk to it sometimes, too. Oh, that's right! Why don't you show it to your mom? See ya!"
"I wonder what a Kimono Girl wants from you..."
  • If the player speaks to his Marill
"Hmm... My Pokémon may be putting on some weight lately...
  • If the player attempts to walk to Route 27 before battling Ho-Oh/Lugia
"Hey, <player>! Where do you think you're going, <player>?"
  • In his house
  • If the player hasn't yet gotten a starter Pokémon
"<Player>! Professor Elm was looking for you. Did you go to his lab?"
  • If the player has a starter Pokémon
"My Marill is super cute... But your Chikorita/Cyndaquil/Totodile looks pretty good, too, <player>!"
  • Later in the game (if no Shiny Leaf is present on the walking Pokémon)
"Isn't it strange that when we are with Pokémon, going out is just so much more fun! <player>! Try going to different places and talk to your Pokémon! I bet you'll find out so many things about them!"
Professor Elm's lab
  • After battling Silver
"Hold on a second! She has nothing to do with it! I saw it. There was a red-haired boy looking into the building!"
"<Player>! I'm glad they understand you are innocent. See you later!"
"<Player>! Did you already collect eight Badges? That's so cool! The professor is waiting for you."
"<Player>, people are talking about you! I heard you helped Kimono Girls? You've been helping all these people! You make me proud to be your friend."
Route 29
"There you are! <Player>! You can catch wild Pokémon with Poké Balls. Follow me!"
"See? Just like that! It's better to lower your target's HP more than I did, or make it sleep or something. You can try all kinds of things to see what works. I'll give you these. Good luck! See ya!"
  • During the capture tutorial
"All right! I got its HP down! Time to throw a Poké Ball!
Route 31
"I knew it was you, <player>! How did you get past me? Here is something neat for surprising me, <player>!"
"The Vs. Recorder can record all your Pokémon battles. I have to go now! I won't let you pass me again! Come on, Marill!"
Route 34
"Grandpa! Good work, Grandpa! The Pokémon you raised for me has been as healthy as can be! You look fit, too!"
"Hi, <player>! Let me introduce you. This is <player>. She's a Trainer. She seems to be getting better at raising Pokémon. Well, not as good as you, Grandpa, of course! Follow me, <player>!"
"Grandma! Let me introduce my friend. This is <player>!"
"What? Grandma...! What are you talking about? She just happens to live nearby..."
"Well, I better go now... See ya! Oh! I almost forgot! Here! This is my Pokégear number!"
"You know you can talk to your Pokémon as they follow you? They do all sorts of cute stuff on the road and in towns. I'm taking notes every time they do funny things. Give me a call and I'll share some of them with you."
"Grandma! Don't you say anything. We are both Trainers, and we are supposed to exchange numbers. That's all."
Celebi event
"Hi, <player>. Have you heard of the legend of the shrine? They say that people disappear when they tamper with it."
"... What was that?"
"Where are we...? Ilex Forest has disappeared! ...That's not it. It's more like we have been transported somewhere else...? <Player>, something is strange! I heard the radio mentioning the date from three years ago!"
"Is I looking at...Celebi? That explains it! Celebi must have caused all this! My grandpa once told me that Celebi can travel through time using its mystic power called Time Travel! Celebi must have taken us back in time! Literally!"
"<Player>, there is someone else here besides us! Let's go find out who!"
"Who does he think he is? That was unnecessary! But what were they talking about? The revival of Team Rocket...? They say that Team Rocket was removed from the Kanto region by a child three years ago. So this really is three years ago!"
"Oh no! It's happening again...! It's Celebi's Time Travel!"
"Huh? That's the guy we just saw arguing with that boy!"
"Three years ago...? Goldenrod City...? Could this be the one the radio was trying to reach? Giovanni, their boss? Do you hear it, <player>? The radio is saying something strange! Team Rocket has occupied the Radio Tower at Goldenrod City! It can't be! <Player>, you solved this case already!"
"They keep calling for their boss. I feel sorry they don't know he's not coming. After this, <player>, you will defeat them! ...Wait a second! <Player>, you're still here. Then, who will defeat Team Rocket...?"
"Not again...! I've had enough! Please let me go back to my time!"
  • Ilex Forest
"Traveling through time sure doesn't feel good."
"Hey, my Marill! I thought I would never see you again! Wait a sec... So we must be back to our time! It was all so bizarre. But now that we are safely back to our time and Team Rocker's terrible design fell through, we can say... all's well that ends well, right? <Player>, you never cease to inspire great adventures! It sure was an exhausting day, though. I better get going. See you!"

"Whoa! Is that what I think it is?"
  • On the Lookout for Ho-Oh
"Hey there, <player>! I knew you'd come!"
"I mean, why wouldn't you? No Trainer would pass up the chance to encounter a Legendary Pokémon!"
We're definitely going to find it!: "That's the spirit! I'm looking forward to it!"
I can’t wait to see it in person!: "Me too! We’ve got to find it!"
"Huh? What's with the heavy sigh, Silver?"
"Oh, that's right! You two still haven't been introduced!"
"This is Silver."
"He's a friend of mine from my adventure across the Johto region!"
"Huh? What're you getting all quiet for?"
"Well, that's Silver for you. He has his moody moments, but he's not a bad guy! I'm sure you two will get along great!"
Nice to meet you!: "So, Silver, what was that sigh about?"
Let's go find Ho-Oh together!: "Another heavy sigh? What's wrong, Silver?"
"Hmm... Well, when you put it like that..."
"I've got it! I know just who we can ask about this!"
"I just remembered! There are these girls who know a lot about Ho-Oh!"
"I've gotta find one of them right away! You two should come along, too!"
  • Seek the Kimono Girl!
"Hmm. Should be around here somewhere..."
"Those girls from Johto who know all about Legendary Pokémon! Don't tell me you forgot about them, Silver."
"They did a dance for Ho-Oh and everything, remember? All we gotta do is find one of the Kimono Girls!"
You really think one of the Kimono Girls would be on Pasio?: "Maybe! Whoever I heard earlier sure talked like she was from Johto. She's gotta know something!"
"Ah! There she is!"
"Hey! Kimono Girl!"
"That's right! We have a question for you, Kimono Girl!"
"You see..."
"What?! Really?!"
"Really?! Then my hunch that you'd know all about Ho-Oh was right on the money!"
"Oh, they're fine! There's no hard feelings between them or anything like that."
"More importantly, let's get to the part where you tell us about Ho-Oh!"
"Wow! There's all kinds of legends about it! I feel like I learned a lot just now!"
"We really wanna meet Ho-Oh. Do you have any idea where it could show up?"
"Elevated locales... What's the closest thing to a tower here on Pasio? A mountain maybe?"
"Of course! We just have to climb a mountain and see what we can find!"
"Thanks, Valerie! You taught me a whole lot just now!"
"We're not the kind of Trainers who'd do anything bad. We just wanna meet Ho-Oh."
"OK, then! <Player>, Silver! We're going mountain climbing tomorrow!"
We better wake up bright and early!: "That's right! We've gotta search every nook and cranny of that mountain! We can’t leave a single stone unturned!"
We better start preparing, then!: "Haha! Don't worry, I'm bringing my trusty camping gear. You could come empty-handed and we'd be totally covered!"
"Don't keep us waiting, either, Silver!"
"H-hold on, Silver! What's gotten into you all of a sudden?"
"We'll be waiting for you tomorrow at the base of the mountain, Silver! Don't forget!"
  • Lance and Silver
"Don't say that! Silver's definitely gonna show up!"
"When we were traveling all over Johto, he'd show up wherever I was..."
"and more often than not, I'd show up wherever he was."
"We're rivals! That's why I know he'll come today!"
You really believe in him, huh?: "Yup! We've had our ups and downs along the way, but he's a good guy!"
I know he'll show up!: "Thanks for believing in Silver, too, <player>!"
"Yeah. Thanks. I'm glad you came along, too, Valerie."
"But won't it be hard for you to climb in that outfit?"
"I knew you'd show up!"
"Hehe! You're gonna try to make Ho-Oh your partner now, Silver? Sounds like you're pretty fired up!"
"But if you think I'm gonna lose, think again! I'm gonna find it first—"
"That can only mean Ho-Oh really is somewhere on this mountain!"
"It's on! Time to see which of us finds Ho-Oh first!"
  • The Choices We Make
"Silver! You've gotta get over here!"
"A bunch of Team Break goons are attacking Trainers up here on the mountain!"
"I'm trying to find a safe place for us to hide right now, but those jerks are probably right on our tails!"
"Valerie and I can probably hold out for a little while, gotta come help us! Hurry!"
"You got this, Cyndaquil! Just a little more..."
"It's about time you showed up! I knew you'd come, though..."
  • A Pure Heart Revealed
"Let's do this, Silver!"
Ethan and Silver sync up so well together!: "Hehe! That's 'cause Silver would always show up outta nowhere to challenge me, so I've gotten real familiar with his battle style!"
"Looks like we just turned the tables on you, Team Break! What're you gonna do now?"
"Hehe, you're not alone, though. We've got your back!"
"Is that...Ho-Oh?!"
"Yeah. And it doesn't seem like it's in a hurry to leave, either."
"Do you think this means Ho-Oh wants to be a partner Pokémon?"
"I'd fly all over Pasio on its back!"
"What about you, Silver?"
"What's wrong, Silver? What're you doing over there?"
"That's not true at all. Come here."
"C'mon! Just do it!"
"Silver, <player> told me what you did."
"You turned down a chance to battle Ho-Oh to come help us."
"If you hadn't done that, we would've been done for."
"That's why I know you're a purehearted Trainer, Silver."
"And that's also why you should be Ho-Oh's partner... You're suited for each other."
"Isn't that right, <player>?"
Sync Pair Story - A Day with Ethan
"Oh, hey there, <player>! Fancy running into you out here!"
I got lost: "That’s not good… Don’t worry, though! We can tell you the way back! You must be hungry! Give us a few minutes, and we’ll whip up something to eat."
I’ "Yikes! Are you OK?! You must’ve gotten lost. Give us a few minutes, and we’ll whip up something to eat."
"I just met up with my friend here. We were just about to have a snack ourselves!"
"Haha! Luckily, there were a lot of mushrooms and Berries near camp!"
"Apparently, it’s not against the rules to pick food like this on Pasio! How swell is that?"
"Of course, taking too much is just bad manners!"
Wow, your friend was right! You are an outdoor expert!: "Aw, shucks."
You really are a survivalist!: "Aw, shucks… You think so?"
"Anyway, dig in!"
How would you recommend cooking them?: "Well, eating them raw and savoring the flavor is nice, but if I were to choose a way to cook them…"
Do we have to eat them raw?: "A little uneasy eating them like this? All right! Then I’ll show you my favorite cooking method!"
"Roasting these ingredients on Cyndaquil’s back cooks them perfectly!"
"Cyndaquil’s the best partner to have around!"
"Not only is he great in a Pokémon battle…"
"I can cook food on his back, and he lights the way when it’s dark!"
"Isn’t that right Cyndaquil?"
"All right! Now let’s put these on the fire!"
"I think we’re good to go!"
"Mmm, perfect! Thanks, Cyndaquil!"
"Here, try this mushroom!"
"Freshly picked and freshly cooked. It’s good, isn’t it?"
"Let’s throw some more stuff on the fire!"
"*munch munch* Mmm! Oh my!"
"What a big mushroom! And that texture is fantastic!"
"Oof, I’m stuffed. Thanks for the food!"
"Now that we’re full, you said you were lost, right, <player>?"
"Hmm, it looks like it might get dark on the way back. Why don’t we all go together?"
"We know the way back perfectly!"
"Besides, with Cyndaquil providing light, we should be able to navigate the forest just fine!"
"You just keep saving the day, don’t you, buddy!"
"As long as you have the right knowledge and friends, adventures out in the wild can be really fun!"
"It’s really rewarding to explore Pasio… Maybe we can go exploring together next time!"
Sync Pair Story - Cyndaquil’s Evolution
"Are you practicing golf, miss? That’s really cool! Can I try, too?"
"Awesome! Then in return, let’s have a Pokémon battle before we get started! Do we have a deal?"
"I had tons of fun, too! Now let’s practice golf--Hm?"
"You’re gonna get even stronger?! You really are the best partner, Cyndaquil!"
"This means we can have tons more adventures together!"
Sync Pair Story - Quilava’s Evolution
"Huh? Really?!"
"I figured out the answer! It’s…"
"Did you figure out the answer, too, Quilava?"
"Lights up bright the more it fights… The answer is… Pokémon!"
"Thanks a lot, Blaine! You gave us the answer to evolving!"
"Let’s have more and more battles and get stronger than ever!"

"I was floored the first time I heard that Pasio is an artificial island!"
"It's got mountains, beaches, forests... I might go so far as to say that it's as beautiful as Johto!"

"But that's nothing compared to traveling with your friends!"

  • Random conversation

"That couple took such good care of my Pokémon that the Pokémon are really attached to them now."
"Seeing how they raise Pokémon opened my eyes to the possibilities of how much closer people and Pokémon can become!"
  • If spoken to again
"You seem like you have an easy time getting close with your Pokémon."
"Is it because you shower them with affection? If you have a secret to it, let me know sometime!"
  • Random conversation
"You want to know why I'm with my Pokémon? Huh... You know, it's become so matter of fact that I've never actually thought about it."
"Well, let's see... Battles and tournaments are definitely a lot of fun. But if I were to give a single reason..."
"Because it's fun to be with them! You're the same way, right?"
  • If spoken to again
"I thought it over, and I realized you don't need a reason to spend time with your friends or with Pokémon!"
"We need each other--that's why we're together. It's as simple as that!"
  • Random conversation
"There has been a lot of cool stuff that happened since I got to Pasio."
"But I think the best part was how I became friends with you!"

  • If spoken to again
"If there's anything on your mind, don't hesitate to tell me, all right?"
"We're friends. I want to help you anytime you need it!"

"I grew up with her in New Bark Town. She's not only a great rival but also one of my best friends!"
"She's got a good head on her shoulders, and she's good in a Pokémon battle to boot! If you need anybody to have your back, she's your girl!"
  • If spoken to again
"We have to value not only our bonds with our Pokémon, but our bonds with other Trainers, too!"
"I mean, c'mon. It's kinda great to have people you can depend on, isn't it?"
  • Special log-in conversation (generic)
"There you are, <player>! I was waiting for you!"
"Every day is a new adventure on Pasio! Let's go see what we can find today!"
