Grant/Quotes

These are Grant's quotes in the Pokémon games.

In the core series

Pokémon X and Y

Cyllage City
"Oh dear... If you're here for the Bicycle race, I'm afraid you're too late. The race is over, and I took first place. I feel bad that you missed it. Here--allow me to give you this Strength HM in consolation. If one of your Pokémon uses the move, it will be able to push large rocks around."
"However, if you want to use the move outside of battle, you'll first need a Badge from the Gym I run in this city. On that note, I'll be waiting for you in the Gym. Come challenge me at your leisure."
Cyllage Gym
  • Before battle
"I've been waiting in eager anticipation! What have I been waiting for? For a worthy challenger to appear! It's quite an achievement to have climbed all the way up here. Very impressive, actually! I have a feeling that our battle will turn out to be worth the wait! I hope you'll show me that your skill as a Trainer surpasses even mine."
  • Upon being defeated
"You have proven to be a wall that I am unable to surmount!"
  • After being defeated
"There are some things that seem out of reach no matter how hard you try. However, it's important that you never give up--no matter the opponent or the odds. I could tell from our battle that you and your Pokémon understand that. To commemorate such an impressive show of teamwork, please accept the Cliff Badge!"
"With the Cliff Badge in your grasp, you should have no issues working together with Pokémon up to level 40. This even applies to Pokémon you've received from other people in trade. And that's not all. You also get...this!"
"It's Rock Tomb. With this move, a Pokémon can hurl rocks at its target, not only inflicting damage but also lowering the target's Speed and preventing it from moving. Now that you've become a master wall climber and conquered this Gym, it's time you thought about how to apply your skills in other areas! Think about how you can improve yourself, as well as the Pokémon that are always by your side. When you find the answer, that's when you'll truly be able to smile!"
  • Post-game
"Have you heard of the Battle Chateau on Route 7? I like to take the occasional trip there. If it pleases you, I hope you might honor me with a rematch there someday."
Battle Chateau
  • Before battle
"There is only one thing I wish for. That by surpassing one another, we find a way to even greater heights."
  • Upon being defeated
"You continue to be a wall that I am unable to surmount!"
  • After being defeated
If giving the player an item: "To commemorate such an impressive show of teamwork, please accept this gift!"
"Yes, this is the way it should be. This way both humans and Pokémon will grow."
  • If the player is defeated
"Do not give up. That is all there really is to it. The most important lessons in life are simple."

"Competing in the PML is an incredible challenge--a mountain unlike any other I've climbed before."
