'''Intro'''
:''"Hi! Sorry to keep you waiting! Welcome to the world of <sc>Pokémon</sc>! My name is <sc>Birch</sc>. But everyone calls me the <sc>Pokémon Professor</sc>. This is what we call a "<sc>Pokémon</sc>." This world is widely inhabited by creatures known as <sc>Pokémon</sc>. We humans live alongside <sc>Pokémon</sc>, at times as friendly playmates, and at times as cooperative workmates. And sometimes, we band together and battle others like us. But despite our closeness, we don't know everything about <sc>Pokémon</sc>. In fact, there are many, many secrets surrounding <sc>Pokémon</sc>. To unravel <sc>Pokémon</sc> mysteries, I've been undertaking research. That's what I do. And you are?"''
:''"Are you a boy? Or are you a girl?"''
*Either choice
:''"All right. What's your name?"''
:''"So it's <name>?"''
*If Yes{{tt|*|Choosing No makes player return to choosing gender}}
:''"Ah, okay! You're <player> who's moving to my hometown of <sc>Littleroot</sc>. I get it now! All right, are you ready? Your very own adventure is about to unfold. Take courage, and leap into the world of <sc>Pokémon</sc> where dreams, adventure and friendships await! Well, I'll be expecting you later. Come see me in my <sc>Pokémon Lab</sc>.

:''"Wh-Where are you going?! Don't leave me like this!"''
*After battle
:''"Whew… I was in the tall grass studying wild <sc>Pokémon</sc> when I was jumped. You saved me. Thanks a lot! Oh? Hi, you're <player>! This is not the place to chat, so come by my <sc>Pokémon Lab</sc> later, okay?"''
 
'''Pokémon Lab'''
*First time
:''"So, <player>. I've heard so much about you from your father. I've heard that you don't have your own <sc>Pokémon</sc> yet. But the way you battled earlier, you pulled it off with aplomb! I guess you have your father's blood in your veins after all! Oh, yes. As thanks for rescuing me, I'd like you to have the <sc>Pokémon</sc> you used earlier."''
:''"While you're at it, why not give a nickname to that <starter>"''
:''"If you work at <sc>Pokémon</sc> and gain experience, I think you'll make a darn good <sc>Trainer</sc>. My kid, <sc>{{ga|Brendan}}</sc>/<sc>{{ga|May}}</sc>{{tt|*|Opposite of player's gender}} is out on <sc>{{rt|103|Hoenn}}</sc> studying <sc>Pokémon</sc>. It might not be a bad idea for you to go see <sc>Brendan</sc>/<sc>May</sc>. What do you think?
*If answered no{{tt|*|This will be repeated until Yes is chosen}}
:''"Oh, don't be that way. You should go meet my kid."''
*If answered yes
:''"Great! <sc>Brendan/May</sc> should be happy, too. Get <sc>Brendan/May</sc> to teach you what it means to be a <sc>Trainer</sc>."''
:*If talked to again
::''"<sc>Brendan/May</sc> should be on <sc>Route</sc> 103 somewhere. If you or your <sc>Pokémon</sc> get tired, get some rest at home."''
*After battle
:''"Oh, hi, <player>! I heard you beat <sc>Brendan</sc>/<sc>May</sc> on your first try. That's excellent! <sc>Brendan</sc>'s/<sc>May</sc>'s been helping with my research for a long time. <sc>Brendan</sc>/<sc>May</sc> has an extensive history as a <sc>Trainer</sc> already. Here, <player>, I ordered this for my research, but I think you should have this <sc>Pokédex</sc>."''
:''"The <sc>Pokédex</sc> is a high-tech tool that automatically makes a record of any <sc>Pokémon</sc> you meet or catch. My kid, <sc>Brendan</sc>/<sc>May</sc>, goes everywhere with it. Whenever my kid catches a rare <sc>Pokémon</sc> and records its data in the <sc>Pokédex</sc>, why, <sc>Brendan</sc>/<sc>May</sc> looks for me while I'm out doing fieldwork, and shows me.
:*If talked to again
::''"Countless <sc>Pokémon</sc> await you! Argh, I'm getting the itch to get out and do fieldwork again!"''
 
'''[[Ever Grande City]]'''
:''"See? What did I tell you, <sc>Brendan</sc>/<sc>May</sc>? Didn't I tell you that you don't need to worry about <player>? …………………… <player>, you've finally done it. When I heard that you defeated your own father at the <sc>Petalburg Gym</sc>, I thought perhaps you had a chance… But to think you've actually become the <sc>Champion</sc>! Ah, yes! What become of your <sc>Pokédex</sc>? Here, let me see.

'''Pokédex evaluation'''
(After [[Wally]] catches {{p|Ralts}}, Birch will evaluate the player's Pokédex in his lab.)

*10-19 Pokémon:
:''"I guess you're getting the hang of it. But, it gets harder from here."''
*20-29 Pokémon:
:''"Some <sc>Pokémon</sc> only appear in certain areas. You'll need to be persistent."''
*30-39 Pokémon:
:''"Well, it could use more quantity, but this is looking more like a <sc>Pokédex</sc> now."''
*40-49 Pokémon:
:''"This is coming along pretty good. Keep up the effort."''
*50-59 Pokémon:
:''"Are you using any <sc>[[Fishing|Rods]]</sc>? There are many <sc>Pokémon</sc> in the sea."''
*60-69 Pokémon:
:''"Instead of just catching <sc>Pokémon</sc>, how about making them [[Evolution|evolve]], too?"''
*70-79 Pokémon:
:''"This is going to be a fantastic <sc>Pokédex</sc>. That's the feeling I'm getting."''
*80-89 Pokémon:
:''"You've collected this many… Your talent is remarkable!"''
*90-99 Pokémon:
:''"Have you visited the <sc>{{Safari|Hoenn}}</sc>? I hear there are some <sc>Pokémon</sc> that can only be caught there."''
*100-109 Pokémon:
:''"You've finally reached the 100-kind mark. This is an impressive <sc>Pokédex</sc>!"''
*110-119 Pokémon:
:''"There might be <sc>Pokémon</sc> that can be found using <sc>{{m|Rock Smash}}</sc>."''
*120-129 Pokémon:
:''"You should get some more <sc>Pokémon</sc> by [[Trade|trading]] with others."''
*130-139 Pokémon:
:''"I've heard of <sc>Pokémon</sc> that evolve when they come to [[Friendship|fully love]] their <sc>Trainers</sc>."''
*140-149 Pokémon:
:''"I had no idea that there were so many <sc>Pokémon</sc> species in the <sc>Hoenn</sc> region."''
*150-159 Pokémon:
:''"On occasion, some <sc>Pokémon</sc> appear in large numbers like [[Mass outbreak|wild outbreaks]]. Don't miss opportunities like those."''
*160-169 Pokémon:
:''"One can get a very good idea about the <sc>Pokémon</sc> of the <sc>Hoenn</sc> region by looking through your <sc>Pokédex</sc>."''
*170-179 Pokémon:
:''"I'd say you already qualify as a <sc>Pokémon Professor</sc>, and a good one, too!"''
*180-189 Pokémon:
:''"With a <sc>Pokédex</sc> this complete, you're a real professional at this!"''

I'm sure {{tt|Brendan|If player's gender is female}}/{{tt|May|If player's gender is male}}'ll be happy to hear that, too. {{tt|He|If player's gender is female}}/{{tt|She|If player's gender is male}} can help teach you what it means to be a Trainer. Oh, yes! And if you're ever lost along the way, just use the {{DL|PokéNav Plus|AreaNav}} on your [[PokéNav Plus]]! You can use use it to see how to get to {{rt|103|Hoenn}}, where {{tt|Brendan|If player's gender is female}}/{{tt|May|If player's gender is male}} ought to be. And if you or your Pokémon get tired, get some rest back at your new house."''
:*'''No{{tt|*|Repeats until Yes is selected}}:''' ''"Oh, don't be that way! You should go meet my kid."''

*Second time
:''"So I hear you beat {{tt|Brendan|If player's gender is female}}/{{tt|May|If player's gender is male}} on your first try. That's amazing!{{tt|*|He will say this even if the player didn't win on the first try}} {{tt|Brendan|If player's gender is female}}/{{tt|May|If player's gender is male}}'s been helping me with my research for a long time, so {{tt|he|If player's gender is female}}/{{tt|she|If player's gender is male}} has a pretty long history as a Trainer already. Mm-hmm! I think that settles it! <player>, I ordered this [[Pokédex]] for my research, but I think you should take it. That Pokédex is a high-tech tool that automatically makes a record of any Pokémon you meet or catch. My {{tt|boy|If player's gender is female}}/{{tt|girl|If player's gender is male}} {{tt|Brendan|If player's gender is female}}/{{tt|May|If player's gender is male}} takes {{tt|his|If player's gender is female}}/{{tt|hers|If player's gender is male}} with {{tt|him|If player's gender is female}}/{{tt|her|If player's gender is male}} everywhere {{tt|he|If player's gender is female}}/{{tt|she|If player's gender is male}} goes. Whenever {{tt|he|If player's gender is female}}/{{tt|she|If player's gender is male}} catches a rare Pokémon and records its data in the Pokédex, why, {{tt|he|If player's gender is female}}/{{tt|she|If player's gender is male}} comes to seek me out wherever I am in the field and show me! The Pokémon and people you will meet… And the great expanse of nature that lies before you! Experience them both while you fill in your Pokédex. I'd love it if your world seemed wider than ever! Though I'd love it even more if you came back from time to time to show me what progress you've made. …Arghhh! I'm getting the itch to get out and do fieldwork again!"''

*Subsequent times
*After capturing/defeating Groudon{{sup/6|OR}}/Kyogre{{sup/6|AS}}
:''"Welcome back, <Player>! You must be tired after all your recent exploits. Brendan/May has been keeping me updated about all of your grand adventures around Hoenn. After hearing all that you've been up to, there is something I'd definitely like to share with you. The fact of the matter is that after you resolved that kerfuffle with the super ancient Pokémon, a number of Pokémon never before recorded in the Hoenn region began to appear all over! Those Pokémon are precisely the subject of my many long years of research… They are Pokémon which are thought to have resided in Hoenn thousands of years ago! We'll finally be able to meet Pokémon never before seen, the very Pokémon I've pursued all these years! I'm so excited I feel like I'm about to burst! So excited that I went right ahead and upgraded the Pokédex to be ready for all of them! Now, let me upgrade your Pokédex while you're here!"''
:''"You'll now find the National Pokédex on your Pokédex's menu, so use it well! It is being suggested that Hoenn is now more hospitable to Pokémon after that incident in Sootopolis. However, that does not necessarily mean the environment has become any more hospitable to humanity. People, Pokémon, and nature… The balance between these three great ecosystems has shifted greatly. I can't wait for you to start exploring this new world! Exploration may help us learn how best to coexist with Pokémon from this time forward. I hope you will find your own answers to this great question, as you continue your journey with your Pokédex!"''
 
'''Pokédex evaluation'''
 
'''Note''': Prof. Birch evaluates the Hoenn Pokédex based on seen Pokémon and the National Pokédex based on caught Pokémon. Event Pokémon count towards evaluation, unless noted otherwise.
 
(After the player has at least made it to Petalburg City<!--Likely -->, Birch will evaluate the player's Pokédex on the PC or in his lab.)
