  • When ordering to go to battle:
  • To a kingdom:
"Fine. We'll put our bonds to the test on the battlefield."

"March to my beat..."

"It's me that you want? Very well."
  • When a rare Pokémon appears in a kingdom:
"A fine opportunity to link."
"We are slowly finding allies for ourselves... But this is still not enough to resist the tides of history. Let's go, <Pokémon's name>!"
"It looks like we've found ourselves some allies... The Pokémon appear pleased as well."
"So he’s coming… Nobunaga… The one who has the power to create an era of his own… To unite this region… Well, he won’t sweep me away that easily. …Three years. Within three years, I will have driven Nobunaga away. I will be the one who leaves my mark on Ransei!"
"I did it… I drove Nobunaga away… But there will be a second Nobunaga. And a third… I must defeat all of them. I must continue to resist tyranny in all its forms."


His laid-back exterior hides a passionate nature that never shrinks from even the most fearsome opponents. Indeed, he is perpetually seeking out his next battle.
