- "Does everyone know about type matchups? Pokémon and their moves all belong to certain types. For example, there are such types as Grass and Water. You need to consider the type of the move used to attack… And, the type of the Pokémon that is hit by that attack. Depending on how those two types match up, the damage can change. You see, it depends n whether the type matchup is good or bad. If you don't know how matchups work, battles will be tough. So, let me demonstrate exactly what I mean. All righty, be seeing you!"
- "The move Bubble is a Water-type attack. The targeted Oddish is a Grass/Poison-type Pokémon. The Water-type attack is absorbed by the Grass-type Pokémon… As a result, the move becomes not very effective, and inflicts only half the usual damage. Uh-oh, this is not good! The Absorb attack you just saw is a Grass-type move. Poliwag is a Water-type Pokémon. So, Absorb becomes super effective, doubling the damage. It's not going to be easy to win with this matchup… Let's try shifting Pokémon! Shifting Pokémon in and out uses up one turn. Now, it's the opponent's turn. Butterfree is a Bug/Flying-type Pokémon. Against this Pokémon, a Grass-type attack……inflicts only half the usual damage on a Bug-type Pokémon… And, it also causes only half the damage on Flying-type Pokémon. Therefore, Butterfree, being a Bug/Flying Pokémon, only takes one quarter of the usual damage. Oddish is a GrassPoison Pokémon. A Flying- or Psychic-type attack is super effective against it. One of those types of attacks will inflict double the usual damage. Okay, here we go! Yeah! We won!"
- "Is it possible to launch an attack that will inflict heavy damage? Does the opposing Pokémon pose a threat to your Pokémon? Is there any chance that it may have disastrously tough moves? Watch the type matchups to gain the upper hand! All righty, be seeing you! Oh, for the Cool-type Poké Dude, Awesome-type kids like you match up perfectly!"
