These are Opal's quotes in the Pokémon games.

In the core series

Pokémon Sword and Shield

Route 6
"You're one of the Gym Challengers endorsed by Leon, aren't you?"
"My name's Opal. If you want to know more, have a look at my League Card."
"I'll keep an eye on you, child. I want to see what you can do when you go all out."
"That child... Gym Challengers should battle for the sake of their own Pokémon. Why worry about saving the Champion's name? We all know he's unbeatable."
"Anyway, here's something for letting me watch your battle."
"Now, on you go, child. You're headed to the Stow-on-Side Gym next, no? The Gym Challenge is about having fun."
Ballonlea Stadium
  • Before the Gym mission
"Ah, there you are, my dear Gym Challenger. Though you are really lacking in the color pink. See, I'm looking for a successor to take on the role of Gym Leader here. So my Gym mission serves as an audition of sorts, too. Oh, don't worry. It's simple enough. All you need to do is battle my Trainers and answer the questions they ask along the way. Think carefully before answering, though, child. If you get the wrong answer, the stats of your Pokémon will get lowered. Oh, but if you answer correctly, your Pokémon will get a stat boost. Just think of it as a little Fairy-type Pokémon magic to make things interesting. Now, I want you to go all out. Show me what you can do!"
  • Before battle
"I suppose it's a bit late to introduce myself, but... I'm Opal, the Gym Leader. I've gotten a good look at how you handled those quizzes. The last part of the mission is me... Let me have a look at how you and your partner Pokémon behave!"
  • First question
"Question! You... Do you know my nickname?"
The magic-user: "Bzzzt! Too bad."
The wizard: "Ding ding ding! Congratulations, you're correct."
  • Second question
"Question! What is my favorite color?"
Pink: "That's what I like to see in other people, but it's not what I like for myself."
Purple: "Yes, a nice, deep purple... Truly grand, don't you think?"
  • Third question
"Question! All righty then... How old am I?"
16 years old: "Hah! I like your answer!"
88 years old: "Well, you're not wrong. But you could've been a little more sensitive."
  • Before sending out last Pokémon
"My morning tea is finally kicking in, and not a moment too soon!"
"Are you prepared? I'm going to have some fun with this."
"You lack pink! Here, let us give you some."
  • Upon being defeated
"Your pink is still lacking, but you're an excellent Trainer with an/some excellent Pokémon."
  • After being defeated
"Well, good try. Not bad, not bad at all. Still, not what I'm looking for... Oh, don't worry yourself about it, child. It's just a matter of my preference. I'll find the next Gym Leader elsewhere. In fact, I've already got an idea about where to look. Too bad about the audition, but here's a Fairy Badge for your efforts."
"Take this TM with you, too. A little bonus from this old lady."
"Lastly, here's a little something for humoring me. This might help add a little more pink to you!"
"Of course it's not good to neglect your elders, but old folk like me should also know when it's time to step out of the spotlight."
"Hold on now."
"I've got a few errands to run in Hammerlocke. Care to join me for the journey? If you're headed for the next Gym Stadium, you'll need to get to Hammerlocke, too, after all."
With pleasure!: "They say two's company, after all."
I'll find my own way: "I like that attitude, child. Still, you're in the middle of the Gym Challenge, are you not? You'll need to head back to Hammerlocke either way if you want to get to Circhester."
  • Upon arriving, if traveled with Opal
"Hammerlocke—always such a dusty town. Though I suppose some Pokémon prefer it that way."
  • Upon encountering Bede
"Hm? That boy..."
"Now that's what I would call pink! So sincere and straightforward and yet so twisted and misguided... I like it! That's the kind of thing that gives people some depth!"
"Time for my Gym mission, child!"
"And pink!"
"Congratulations, child!"
"You were used by Oleana—am I right? You worked hard to gather Wishing Stars for her, only to have her throw you away like rubbish once she was done with you..."
"Come with me, child. I might be able to help you out. Of course, it all depends on how much hard work you're willing to put in, too."
"Farewell for now, child. You should head to Circhester. I take it you know how to get to Route 7."
Ballonlea Stadium (Sordward and Shielbert)
  • Upon arriving
"Don't always be in such a hurry, boy. You aced my quiz, so show a little composure."
"Bede has already quieted three Dynamax Pokémon. He's given you the luxury of some extra time."
"Bede's life won't be bound by what other people say any longer. Although I certainly influenced a few of his decisions not too long ago."
  • After defeating Bede
"Now, that's what I would call a perfectly pink Pokémon battle!"
Wyndon Stadium (Galarian Star Tournament)
Partnering with Opal
  • In the locker room before the first round
"I don't have any intention of outstaying my welcome, you understand. But if you young ones insist that you need my help, then I can hardly ignore your pleas."
  • On the field before the first round battle
"I'd love to toss in a quiz or two, but... I guess this isn't the time." / "Let's turn this stadium pink, shall we?"
  • In the locker room before the second round
"Yes, yes, well done. You seem to be coming along quite well. You're precisely what I've come to expect in a Champion—even if you are sadly lacking in pink. Let's keep it up, and we'll reach the top."
  • On the field before the second round battle
"Try to keep up, dear pink-lacking Champion." / "I'll show everyone that they don't call me "the wizard" for nothing. And everyone includes you!"
  • In the locker room before the final round
"It's obviously no fluke that you managed to defeat that young Leon. Even partnering up with a retired old woman like myself isn't slowing you down, is it? Win this whole thing, and I'll even offer you my heartfelt congratulations."
  • On the field before the final round battle
"If we win this, I might just have to make a comeback..." / "Oh, so they're our next opponents? This should be fun."
  • First time winning the tournament
"Congratulations, young man/lady. Though teaming up with you always makes me put on a grander show than I'd planned. Still...I have to admit I had fun. You'd think I'd have outgrown this kind of thing by now! It seems I'm quite beyond help in that regard."
  • Subsequent tournament victories
"Congratulations are in order...or are they indeed, young man/lady? Are you sure this is what you want—sharing the spotlight of victory with an old crone like me? Oh, you are, are you? Hmph... Perhaps you're starting to get a bit pink yourself, after all...
Facing against Opal
  • After sending out first Pokémon
  • With Bede
"Come now, Bede... Time for our Double Pink Typhoon!"
"Don't mind me, child. You got all the correct answers to my quizzes, so do as you please."
"Now, I haven't battled at your side for quite a long while. It's almost a little embarrassing!"
"Do your best, young Piers. Or I'll...Play Rough."
  • Before sending out last Pokémon
"Well now, that move certainly woke me up. It'd be rude not to return the favor!"
  • Upon Gigantamaxing Alcremie
"Keeping things simple is just boring. Have a taste of this refined flavor!"
  • Upon using G-Max Finale for the first time
"There's more to strength than just physical power. Now, let's sap some of that vitality!"
  • Upon being defeated
"That was the perfect distraction. Just what I'd hoped for from the Champion's team!"
  • After being defeated in the first round
"You defeated Team Opal right out of the gate. Now you need to keep winning, you understand?"
  • After being defeated in the second round
"Well, I hoped we'd be more of a hurdle to you. I guess I'll have my tea in the stands... Oh, don't worry. I'll be cheering for you."
  • After being defeated in the final round
"Congratulations, child. I can't think of a better stage for young, fresh talent to really shine."
Field conversations (with or against the player)
  • Against Bede
"Almost called me an old lady again, didn't you? Maybe I need to adjust that attitude a bit more."
  • Against Hop
"You answered all my questions correctly, child... And I see you've got the correct attitude, too!"
  • Against Mustard
"Well, you're caught up in a face-off between two seniors now, Champion. Too bad for you, I guess."
