"Hee hee! Of course! I totally have one!"
"Oh, a Slowpoke!"
  • If talked to prior to interacting with the Slowpoke
"Is this the first time you've seen a Galarian Slowpoke? The coloring of the top of its head is curry-like. Isn't it superduper cute?"
  • After catching the Slowpoke
"Wow! Amazing! The way you caught that Slowpoke was the absolute coolest."
"I'm heading to a place called the Isle of Armor. I'm gonna catch some rare Pokémon and do some training. Let's hang if we meet up again, 'K? Bye-bye, then! See ya!"


  • Klara's headband resembles Dustox wings.
  • Klara's uniform number is "881", which can be read in Japanese as goroawase for やばい yabai, meaning "dangerous".
