Roxie/Quotes

These are Roxie's quotes in the Pokémon games.

In the core series

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

Virbank City
  • Upon arriving in the city
"Get real! You're a captain already, aren't you? If that ship doesn't move, you're going to cause lots of trouble!"
"AAAAAAH! You dim-witted...dense...dumb...daft...dippy...dorky...doltish DOOFUS! Doing double duty isn't the problem! You're causing problems for people! Keeping people from getting where they're going because of sheer selfishness is unforgivable! I've HAD it! I'm going to the Gym!"
Virbank Gym
  • Before battle
"Get ready! I'm gonna knock some sense outta ya!"
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"I can feel your desire to win pouring out of you!"
  • After sending out last Pokémon
"It's not over yet! Time to turn this show around for a victory!"
  • Being defeated
"Wait! I was right in the middle of the chorus!"
  • After being defeated
"Sigh! What are you doing losing, Roxie?! Well…I guess that means you're strong! This stinks, but I gave it everything I had, and I feel revitalized and refreshed now! Here! Proof that you beat me!"
"Two Badges! Now Pokémon up to Lv. 30, even Pokémon you got in trades, will realize how good you are and won't ignore your commands! Also, here! Use this TM!"
"TM09 is Venoshock! It covers the target in a special poisonous liquid! Even better, if your target's already poisoned, it does double damage! Heh heh! It almost packs too much of a punch!"
"Your Pokémon WANTED this win! Keep on going on like this, and do all sorts of stuff!"
"You're going to Pokéstar Studios?! OH! I forgot! The old man! I have to get him back to work as captain!"
  • If talked to again later
"Using the Pokémon I like and getting through to people with the music I like is who I am! If you can do what you enjoy in the way you want, then great! Just be sure not to cause anyone any trouble!"
Virbank City
"So, are you guys Team Plasma, then?"
"Split up! You, go check Route 20!"
"If I'd lost, my precious Pokémon would've been taken! Thanks, you two! Use this!
  • After defeating the Grunt on Route 20
"I thought your movie was pretty good."
"C'mon! Don't get down! You can keep trying while you continue on as captain! As long as you don't cause anyone trouble, I won't get mad. I don't know how the Pokéstar Studios people feel about that, though!"
"Oh... Did you hear us? Well, it looks like everyone from Team Plasma got away... I don't feel really good about it, but at least they're gone. Oh! There was a lot of ruckus, but you can sail to Castelia City now!"
Pokémon World Tournament
  • When first met
"Hey! You two! Haven't you got any wild and crazy Pokémon battles to show me?! Guess I'll have to enter the tournament myself and rock the audience right outta their seats!"
  • Before battle (first round)
"Get ready! I'm gonna knock some sense outta ya!"
  • Before battle (second round)
"Fight with this Pokémon that way... Use this item that way... Are you letting others decide that for you? Well, whatever, but what's important is figuring out what you want to do! Get ready! 'Cause I'm going to knock the common sense outta you and drag you into a brand new world!"
  • Before battle (last round)
"You don't do anything! What do you know?! You don't do anything! How're you gonna change?! But, I've got you covered! I'm gonna give your reason a toxic shock and open up your mind!"
  • Being defeated
"Wild! Your reason's already more toxic than mine!"
  • If the player is defeated
"Hey, c'mon! Get serious! You gotta put more out there!"
  • After being defeated
"You didn't win... I lost! I was weak and made my Pokémon feel how much losing stinks! Watch out! Next time we meet, I'm going to give you a toxic shock!"
  • After winning
"Ya can't win 'em all. It's impossible, seriously! Trying to look cool every time you mess up or fail is totally exhausting! So you just have to let it all hang out!"
  • In the lobby, after the tournament
"Congrats on taking first! Losing stinks, but still... You're a fun Pokémon Trainer to battle! I mean, c'mon! The Pokémon battling with you are all like, "We're gonna win!""
Badge Case
A Little Poison in Your Days, a Little Poison on the Stage

Story Event - The Importance of Elegance
  • The Beat! The Passion!
"Hey! Just wanted to say your battle just now was suuuper rad!"
"What's all this about elegance and focus, though? Did I miss something, or..."
"Ahh, I think I get it now..."
"You want my honest opinion? After watchin' you guys battle..."
"I don't think elegance OR focus are what's really most important when it comes to Pokémon battling."
"Well, in MY opinion, it's gotta be the beat! The passion!"
"You start riffin', you build up a killer rhythm, and then BAM! You smash your opponents in the face with it!"
"I guess it's kinda hard to put it into words... Let's just skip 'em! C'mon! I'll make you guys FEEL what I mean instead!"
"I'll show you a Pokémon battle so wild it'll blow your mind!"
  • Strength and Kindness
"Gahh! What's goin' on, Roxie?! You weren't supposed to lose!"
"*sigh* Guess I blew my chance at showin' you guys what I was talkin' about."
"Really? But what about the beat? Did you feel the BEAT?!"
"I guess you've got a point. When I'm playin' music, sometimes it's less about the beat and more about just chillin' and enjoyin' myself."
Legendary Event - The Beast That Devours the Sun
  • The Dawn of a New Adventure
"You're headin' up to the peak today, right? Professor Bellis gave us the lowdown."
"Me and Hau are goin' with you! Personally, I'm hopin' that seein' the sunrise'll give me some new inspiration."
Let's do it!: "All right, then! Let's rock 'n' roll!"
"If we start to get tired, I'll wake us up with a sweet bass solo. Ha ha!"
"Doesn't sound like a bad idea to me! I wouldn't mind a quick battle before dawn!"
  • At First Light
"Whoa, whoa, hold up! Now's not the time for malasadas, you two! We haven't got much time left!"
"The sun's not gonna wait around for us to have a snack. C'mon, let's get going!"
"Yep! Check out the sky... It's starting to get brighter and brighter! The sun's probably gonna rise any minute now!"
"Hmm... No sign of anything like that yet... Wait, look! The sun's starting to rise!"
"Rocks? Where?"
"N-no way! What kinda Pokémon is THAT?!"
"Solgaleo? Have you seen it before, Hau?"
"Rad... It definitely seems like the Pokémon we're lookin' for."
"But what's a Legendary Pokémon doin' all the way out here on Pasio? And..."
"Where's its Trainer? It's gotta be part of a sync pair, right? I don't see anyone else around..."
"Huh?! Where'd those other two Pokémon come from all of a sudden?"
"Uh, maybe it's just my imagination..."
"but it looks like Solgaleo wants to battle all the sync pairs gathered up here right now."
"Guess that's why we call 'em Legendary... Look! Solgaleo just crushed all those Trainers, and it's barely breakin' a sweat."
"Heh, it's about time! I've been wonderin' when it'd finally be our turn to take the stage!"
"C'mon, <player>! Let's show this Legendary Pokémon how we rock 'n' roll!"
  • A Second Wind
"How do you feel, Solgaleo! I bet the fire in our hearts got yours beatin' like a drum!"
"Huh. Is it just me, or does Solgaleo look a little too cheerful for having just lost?"
"Um... Am I goin' crazy, or is Solgaleo givin' off an even more intense vibe now?"
"That's what I was thinkin'! Feels like it's tryin' to pump us up for another round!"
"Hehe, fine by me. You've got some guts, Solgaleo! I like your style! "
"If you want more where that came from, then c'mon! Let's battle it out till we forget our own names!"
"Get ready, 'cause we're about to blow your mind!"
  • A Shining New Friend
"Not a...clue... I've barely had a...moment to breathe..."
"Hehe... Think our poisonous riffs satisfied its thirst for battle?"
"I've been jammin' out so hard, I forgot to watch the rest of the sunrise. Guess that means it was worth it!"
"Haha, I guess it's true when you put it that way!"
"Man, nothin' beats gettin' to have such a rad session with Solgaleo, though! Kinda feels auspicious, like Professor Bellis was sayin'!"
"Speakin' of which, we should probably start headin' back soon, now that the sun's up..."
"Catch ya later, Solgaleo. Stay cool."
"Hey, wait a sec... Is it just me, or is Solgaleo followin' us?"
"You heard 'em. So, what do you say, <player>?"
Welcome to the team, Solgaleo!: "Haha! I'm guessing that means it's happy!"
Guess I've got a new best friend!: "You bet you do! Haha! You and Solgaleo are gonna make an awesome sync pair!"
"Oh man! I hadn't even thought of that! Hope we get to battle again sometime soon, Solgaleo!"
"Next time, as teammates!"
Story Event - Summer Superstars

"As if we'd lose a music competition! First place is as good as ours!"
"<Player>! Even if we're up against you and a Champion, we won't lose!"
Regardless of choice: "I guess you could say that. I figure making a name for myself here might encourage my old man while he's chasing his dream back in Unova."
"Uh, I mean, not that I care about him that much or anything! Let's get this party started already!"
  • Jigglypunk!
"Well done, Ryuki! I'm wide awake now!"
  • Endless Summer!
"This is the homestretch! We'll take on your determination with our poisonous performance!"
"Yeah, I don't mind. He'd be taking a load off our hands. Literally..."

"I'm stoked to see a rad Pokémon with the sunrise!"
  • Random conversation
"You know, my old man has two jobs, too, just like me."
"He's a ship's captain and an actor!"
"Although I gotta say, he gets a bit caught up in acting sometimes and lets his ship just sit in harbor."
"It's not good to cause problems for people, right?"
  • If spoken to again
"See, I want to support my old man's dream of becoming an actor."
"I mean, I went and saw the movie he was in, and it was pretty good."
  • Random conversation
"Sometimes, when I'm out exploring, inspiration just hits me out of nowhere!"
"It's a great help to my song writing."
"Especially when I'm with you!"
  • If spoken to again

"But you can't slack off on either of them!"
  • Random conversation
"Hey, about you and your Pokémon!"
"You're getting really strong, aren't you!"
"Not just pure strength. Your will to win is getting stronger, too!"
"Watching you gets me pumped, too!"
  • If spoken to again
"I'll never use my double duty with my band as an excuse for anything!"
"I don't plan on letting you win our Pokémon battles, either, so there!"
  • Random conversation
"The song I'm working on—it's going to be great!"
"See, I'm making my adventures here into a song!"
"Oh, of course you're gonna be in the song, too!"
"There's no way any of my adventures here on Pasio would happen without you!"
  • If spoken to again
"I still want more ideas for new songs, though."
"So that means you're gonna keep exploring with me, all right?!"

"Aw, Marlon, let's take a break! We just got done battling!"
"A professional man of the sea? You mean like a sea captain or a fisher, right?"
"Huh? No, my pop is—"
"I'll admit my pops is dorky, but even he's not this bad!"
"So, ya know how we're both Poison-type Gym Leaders?"
"Well, I heard there's this really strong Poison-type Trainer at a dojo on the Isle of Armor in Galar. Ever heard of it? And get this—she's a girl, too!"
"Yeah! Then we can battle her and see how good she really is!"
"Music to my ears! I'll roll up to that Trainer with an official letter of challenge, then rock her with my poison and really knock some sense outta her!"
Sync Pair Story
  • A Day with Roxie
"Oh! Hey there, <player>. Did we catch your attention with our little jam session?"
Yeah.: "Haha! That's pretty sick, actually."
No.: "Aw, you don't gotta be shy! Come on—I'm positive you heard us."
"If you ever wanna get into music, we should totally form a band. I mean, we're already on the same team, right?"
"Come on! Sing a little something for me!"
You got it!: "Whoa-ho-ho! I love that enthusiasm!"
I'm nervous...: "You don't gotta be nervous! Nobody'll laugh at you—I promise!"
"So, what kind of song are you gonna sing for me?"
Some heavy metal.: "Haha! I knew you had rock music in your soul! I love heavy metal, too!"
A light ballad.: "Haha! I kinda figured you would sing something like that!"
"Well, come on! Let's hear it!"
"Well, I think you might have made a fan outta Whirlipede!"
"You know, listening to you sing kinda put my heart at ease, <player>."
"That kind, fun personality of yours really came through in your singing!"
"Buuut...I feel like being in a band might not really be your thing."
Was I that terrible?: "No no! That's not what I meant!"
That's kind of disappointing.: "Wait, no! Don't be sad!"
"Argh! I'm saying it all wrong... Just listen to me for a sec!"
"I think...you're thinking about it too much, <player>."
"I mean, when I jam, I JAM! Sometimes I rock out and headbang so hard, I forget my own name!"
"When I heard you sing, it kinda made me realize something."
"<Player>... I think Pokémon battling is your jam! It's where you're most in your element!"
"So, I guess it might sound a little selfish of me to say this, but..."
"I'd much rather see you stand up on stage and battle it out next to your Pokémon!"
I get what you mean. Will you root for me, then?: "Duh! I'll be cheering for you from the front row! That's what friends are for!"
Guess we should have a battle soon, then!: "You're on!"
"Just you wait—we're gonna blast away the competition! Kaboom!"
"You know, I've got loads of fans that love and support my music..."
"but when it comes to Trainers, I'm YOUR biggest fan!"
"Or am I? Hahaha!"
  • Whirlipede's Evolution
"Whoa, you listen to our music? Rad! Whirlipede and I love meeting our fans. We should get to know each other better."
"I'm picking up what you're putting down... Let's let our battle skills do the talking!"
"Come on, then! Whirlipede and I are gonna blow your minds!"
  • After defeating Mina
"You two rock pretty hard yourselves! I'd love to battle again sometime!"
"Huh? What's wrong, Whirlipede? Wait... No way!"
"You're evolving, aren't you?! You want to grow stronger—I can feel the energy coming off you in waves!"
