Pryce/Quotes

These are Pryce's quotes in the Pokémon games.

In the core series

Pokémon Gold, Silver, and Crystal

  • Before battle
"Pokémon have many experiences in their lives, just like we do. I, too, have seen and suffered much in my life. Since I am your elder, let me show you what I mean. I have been with Pokémon since before you were born. I do not lose easily. I, Pryce--the winter trainer-- shall demonstrate my power!"
  • Being defeated
"Ah, I am impressed by your prowess. With your strong will, I know you will overcome all life's obstacles. You are worthy of this Badge!"
  • After being defeated
"That Badge will raise the Special stats of Pokémon. It also lets your Pokémon use Whirlpool to get across real whirlpools."
"And this... This is a gift from me!"
"That TM contains Icy Wind. It inflicts damage and lowers speed. It demonstrates the harshness of winter."
"When the ice and snow melt, spring arrives. You and your Pokémon will be together for many years to come. Cherish your time together!"

Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

Mahogany Gym

  • Before battle
"Pokémon have many experiences in their lives, just like we do. I, too, have seen and suffered much in my life. Since I am your elder, let me show you what I mean.

  • Sending out the last Pokémon
"Humph... You are quite the Trainer."

  • After battle
"I am impressed by your prowess. With your strong will, I know you will overcome all life's obstacles. You are worthy of this Badge! That Badge will raise the Special stats of Pokémon. It also lets your Pokémon use Whirlpool to get across real whirlpools."

Fighting Dojo

  • Before battle
"Finally. No need for words. A Pokémon battle is the way for us to communicate."
  • After being defeated
"Mmm... Impressive!"

Pokégear Registering (Lake of Rage)

"The strong rain falling on the surface seems to be agitating the raging lake. This must have some purpose that we meet again. Why don't we exchange our phone numbers?"
Yes: "I make it a habit to train myself on Monday mornings to give this lazy body a spine. You could be a good training partner. I'll be waiting for your call!"
No: "That's OK, too. People ought to have their own ideas. That's the way it is."
"So? Will you exchange numbers with me?"

Pokégear Phone

  • Pryce calling the player:
"Yes, this is Pryce. How are you doing? Just like one of my children... No. You’re more like one of my grandchildren... There’s such an age difference between myself and the Trainers who defeat me nowadays... But you know, the strange thing is that when I lose, I don’t feel disappointed. I just feel happy. Just happy that such talented Trainers have come to see me. ...I just wanted to talk to someone about that, so I called you. That’s all."
"Yes, this is Pryce. How are you doing? Do you know why they call me the winter Trainer? Do you recall that my middle name is “Willow”? The willow tree looks like it withers in winter’s cold. But really, it sprouts dozens of new buds. My fighting style is also strong just like that... It’s written in old books, you know. You should look it up sometime."
  • Calling him:
"Hello... Oh, hi, how are you? I'm doing fine, thanks. You know, there are Gym Leaders out there who are stronger than me. You should try battling them. I don't think you'll lose."
"Hello... Oh, hi, how are you? I'm doing fine, thanks. I usually get up pretty early... If we're going to battle, I'm at my best in the morning... How about you give me a call on Monday morning!"
  • On Monday mornings:
"Hello... Oh, hi, how are you? I'm doing fine, thanks. Oh, perfect timing... I was starting to get bored... Do you want to battle again?"
No: "I see. Well, that's how it's got to be... If you ever change your mind, give me a call. Remember, I'm free on Monday mornings."
Yes: "Honesty is good. So I'll meet you at the Fighting Dojo in Saffron City, then?"
"What? I can’t hear you very well. I think we’ve got a bad connection. Well, if you have something you want to talk to me about, go somewhere else and try calling again."
