The event first ran from March 27 to April 14, 2020. The "Guzma and Plumeria Spotlight Scout" gave players an increased chance of recruiting Guzma and Golisopod and Plumeria and Salazzle for the duration of the event.
In this run, players could earn travel tokens from "Challenge Team Break" single-player battles. The player could use travel tokens to move to an adjacent space on the event map, collecting the item on that space. Reaching the checkpoint on a map would allow the player to unlock a new story area, if one was available, and advance to the next map. In addition, the maps would occasionally include a story sub-area that could be unlocked when the player moved to that space. Extra travel tokens were automatically exchanged with coins once the event was finished.
Once a day, each battle provided triple the travel token rewards. In addition, the player could battle using Guzma and Golisopod or Plumeria and Salazzle to obtain +1× bonus travel tokens, and Liza and Lunatone to obtain +0.2× bonus travel tokens.
The event reran from January 17 to February 3, 2022. In this run, there was no event map; each story area was unlocked by completing the preceding battle, and the story sub-areas were unlocked by completing missions. Players could earn Event Vouchers F from battles that could be redeemed in the Shop. Extra vouchers were automatically exchanged with coins once the event was finished.
The player could battle using Guzma and Golisopod or Plumeria and Salazzle to obtain +0.6× bonus vouchers; Liza and Lunatone to obtain +0.4× bonus vouchers; and the player character and Pikachu or the player character and Torchic to obtain +0.2× bonus vouchers.
Players would receive a medal for completing all the story areas in the event.
Guzma defeats Liza, Drake, and the player in a battle, but Liza wants to keep battling, despite Guzma's put-downs. She tells Drake she and Tate had each promised to get stronger on their own. Plumeria overhears and scolds Guzma for picking on Liza, but when Liza put herself down for only being "half" a Gym Leader, Guzma and Plumeria both challenge her to get stronger. They are interrupted by a team of trainers who challenge the group.
Guzma, Plumeria, and the player clear the trainers out. Liza is impressed by their strength and asks Guzma to take her as an apprentice. Plumeria convinces a reluctant Guzma to give her a chance, and he tells her to watch him, Plumeria, and the player battle Drake.
Liza seems unsure after watching the battle, so Guzma takes her on himself. After losing again, Liza wonders if she simply cannot get stronger without Tate. Guzma tells her she needs to break free of the way she views herself to grow. After considering this, Liza challenges Guzma, Plumeria, and the player one more time.
Liza is defeated again, but she is pleased with the battle. Drake muses that Liza has been caught up in trying to find her place in the three-on-three battles, compared to how naturally she used to battle together with Tate. Guzma disagrees, saying that she should be used to battling with a team, but she convinced herself that she was fighting alone. He and Plumeria agree that in the last battle Liza was able to relax and rely on her teammates. Plumeria also reminds her to rely on her Lunatone's support. Liza thanks Guzma for his training, and Plumeria, Drake, and the player tease Guzma for being a "kind mentor".
In a series of vignettes, Guzma takes the player to go rock smashing in a tunnel, where they rescue a trainer from Team Break; Plumeria goes downtown with the player to get cocoa, but they end up taking a lost Preschooler back to the Pokémon center instead; Guzma explains how Golisopod is usually gentle, but becomes fierce during battle, and he compares the player to Golisopod; Plumeria talks about Guzma's enthusiasm and kindness, and compares him to her Salazzle, saying there is more to them than meets the eye; Guzma needles Drake about constantly giving younger trainers help and advice, only to be reminded of Hala; Plumeria tells Liza that Guzma became who he is by facing many obstacles, and advises her to keep facing new challenges; Bugsy excitedly approaches Golisopod, and he and Guzma discuss Golisopod and not judging intimidating Pokémon by first impressions; Guzma reluctantly saves a Preschooler's Charmander from being stuck in a tree; Plumeria spots Tate watching Liza's training, and he tells how her progress has inspired him to get stronger, too; Plumeria runs into Lorelei, who challenges her to a battle when she infers that Plumeria also likes cute stuffed Pokémon dolls; and Guzma and Plumeria discuss their reasons for coming to Pasio, with Plumeria inviting the player to come back with them to Alola whenever they decide to leave.

1★ Team Skull Crash Course
- Pokémon Center
|Guzma||All right! Come on!|
|Guzma||Step right up if you wanna get destroyed!|
Big bad Guzma, who beats you down, and beats you down, and never lets up...is taking all comers!
|Plumeria||I'm kinda worried.|
|Plumeria||Ever since we got here, Guzma's been on edge.|
I just hope he doesn't make a big racket about it. We're guests on this island, after all.
- Team Skull Represent!
|Guzma||Yo, <player>! Got a second? Sure you do!|
|Plumeria||Sorry you got dragged into this.|
Would you mind tagging along for this training of his?
- Part 1: Team Skull's Big Bad Boss
|Guzma||Come on! I'll beat you down and beat you down some more!|
|Drake||Looks like Golisopod's about to use First Impression! It works only when the user's just entered a battle, but it deals massive damage!|
|Liza||Watch out, Lunatone! Dodge it!|
|Guzma||Protect Lunatone!: You can get crushed with the rest of 'em! Go, Golisopod!|
Attack Golisopod!: Hah, that's a good one! You can get crushed with the rest of 'em! Go, Golisopod!
|Drake||Oh, no you don't! Salamence, go!|
Well, we fought hard, but victory eluded us this time. Liza and <player>, are you all right?
|Liza||I'm fine! I can still fight!|
Mr. Guzma, can we have a rema—
|Guzma||No way! You ain't worth the time!|
Fighting you's a waste of a beatdown!
A bunch of boulders would make a better opponent than you!
|Drake||That's enough! Both of you!|
Liza, I can't fault your enthusiasm, but you can't go charging into battles so recklessly.
As for you, Guzma...
Why can't you get a sentence out without being so menacing?
|Guzma||Shut up! That's just how big bad Guzma is! If you don't like it, stay out of my business!|
|Drake||Oh, honestly, I've just about had it with you.|
Tell me, Liza—why all this rush to get stronger, anyway?
|Liza||'Cause...I made a promise with my brother, Tate.|
We agreed we'd both work to stand on our own two feet.
If I want to get to that point, I have to become stronger. Strong enough to fight on my own—
|???||If that's your goal, then fighting like you did just now won't get you far.|
|Guzma||Plumeria? What're you doing here?|
|Plumeria||How sweet. Nice to see you, too. I was just passing through and heard a commotion, so I thought I'd come see what's up.|
And what should I find but you bullying this little girl.
You oughta be ashamed, picking on weaker people like that. What kind of look is that for the leader of Team Skull?
|Guzma||Huh? What do you mean by "weaker people?!"|
They've got one of the Hoenn Elite Four with 'em! That's supposed to be "weak?"
|Plumeria||Oh, wow. You're with the Hoenn Elite Four, huh, old-timer?|
But the little girl's another story, isn't she?
|Liza||Hey! I-I'm no weakling! I'm a Gym Leader in Hoenn!|
I mean...when I'm with Tate I am, anyway...
|Guzma||Guh! Wipe that pitiful look off your face!|
Do you wanna get stronger or not?
|Liza||I do... I do want to!|
|Guzma||Then quit whimpering!|
|Plumeria||I swear. That's our boss—delicate as a hammer.|
Still, he's got a point.
If you wanna change, you'd better face your goal head-on, or you'll miss out on the important stuff.
|Liza||You're right! Thanks, Mr. Guzma! Thanks, Ms. Plumeria!|
|Guzma||Heh! Save your thanks, kid!|
|Black Belt||Hey, you there! Face me in battle!|
|Guzma||Hey, Plumeria and <player>! Gimme a hand here!|
|Plumeria||I think I know what you've got in mind. Time for a Pokémon battle, right?|
|Guzma||You got that right! If you wanna be strong, first you better see what strength looks like!|
And if you wanna see strength, big bad Guzma's your boy! I'll beat you down, then beat you down some more!
- Part 2: Team Skull's New Apprentice?
|Guzma||So! What do you think of the might of big bad Guzma and Golisopod?|
|Plumeria||You're both so strong!: Look who's talking, <player>. You weren't so bad yourself.|
|Guzma||That was some serious destruction!: I'll admit it, <player>—you can destroy with the best of 'em!|
|Liza||That was some serious destruction!: That was so, so cool! Amazing!|
How do I become that strong?!
Do I just have to wait until I'm grown-up?
Or is there some kind of trick to it?
Grrr! I just want to be strong like you and the others, Mr. Guzma!
Oh! I know! Take me as your apprentice!
|Guzma||Huh? No way! Completely outta the question!|
|Liza||Awww! How come?!|
|Guzma||I-I don't take apprentices, kid. Personal policy.|
|Plumeria||Personal policy, huh? First I've heard of it.|
|Guzma||Shut up! You keep outta this!|
Look, no apprentices for me! End of story!
If you wanna get stronger, use your own power to do something about it!
|Liza||Awww. But I was really hoping you'd teach me.|
|Plumeria||Why not make an exception just this once?|
Y'know, she may be different in a lot of key ways, but...
she kind of reminds me of our cute numskulls back home. It wouldn't feel right to just leave her in the lurch, would it?
|Guzma||... ... ...|
Listen up, kid.
I'll say it one last time—big bad Guzma doesn't take apprentices...
But this time, and this time only, I guess I wouldn't mind...not refusing you.
|Drake||Just can't give a simple yes, can you?|
|Guzma||Keep it to yourself!|
So what's it gonna be? It's now or never! You gonna watch me do my thing or not?
|Liza||Yes, please! I'm glad to have even one chance. Thank you so much!|
|Plumeria||Hmm. Seems like pure and simple gratitude knocks him off-balance.|
|Drake||Isn't this nice, Liza? But I wonder... How exactly is this training going to work?|
|Guzma||Shut it! I'll tell you how it'll work: beatdowns and more beatdowns! Now watch carefully. I'll give you one more look at big bad Guzma's brand of destruction!|
You gotta learn the trick to it with your own two eyes!
Here goes! Look alive, Plumeria and <player>. Time for some full-blast destruction!
|Plumeria||Yeah yeah, Salazzle and I have already followed you this far. We might as well keep goin' till you're satisfied.|
|Guzma||You're up first, Drake! Hope you're ready for us!|
|Drake||Well, that suits me fine. But weren't you the victor when we battled just minutes ago?|
|Guzma||Oh, c'mon! You think beating someone who was busy protecting a kid counts as a win?|
I wanna be able to say I beat down one of the Hoenn Elite Four fair and square!
|Drake||Wah ha ha!|
I see, I see. Well then, see what you make of Drake, the Dragon master of the Hoenn Elite Four!
- Part 3: A Team Skull Beatdown!
|Guzma||Well? That oughta be enough watching to start picking up a knack for destruction!|
|Liza||... ... ...|
|Guzma||For real?! What don't you get about it?|
|Plumeria||You big dummy. What good is just watching?|
Tell me, Liza. Do you know the difference between how you battle and how we battle?
|Liza||I'm sorry... I don't.|
|Plumeria||How about you, <player>? Any thoughts?|
|Liza||We clicked perfectly!: Clicked...perfectly?|
|Plumeria||We clicked perfectly!: You, me, and Guzma did?|
Well, that idea's both nice and troubling.
|Liza||We destroyed with more spirit!: More spirited destruction, huh?|
|Guzma||We destroyed with more spirit!: Heh. You hit the nail on the head!|
There ain't nobody who can match me when it comes to destructive spirit!
|Guzma||If watching won't cut it, better try it for yourself! Get ready for a battle with big bad Guzma!|
|Liza||Yes, sir! Th-thank you, sir!|
|Guzma||So! How come you keep losing? Find the answer yet, kid?|
|Liza||Because I just can't pull myself together!|
I know I need to be able to stand on my own two feet without Tate...
but maybe I just can't cut it without him after all?
|Guzma||Gaaah! Come on—that ain't it!|
Now listen good, kid! Is it your brother's fault you're not strong?
No! The only person keeping you from winning is you!
You convinced yourself you're a certain way, and you shut yourself up in your own shell because of it!
|Drake||Hold on now, Guzma...|
|Guzma||Now you've gotta break that shell for yourself! Be the one to smash it wide open!|
|Liza||I'm weak...because I shut myself inside my shell?|
I just convinced myself of something...
I convinced myself that without Tate, I have to be able to stand all on my own!
Is everything OK, Liza?: Yeah, <player>... I'm fine now!
Sounds like you realized something.: I sure did!
Mr. Guzma! Let's battle again!
|Drake||All better now, are we, Liza?|
|Liza||Yes, I'm all right! And I won't go down so easily this time!|
|Guzma||Heh! If we're doing this, we're doing it right. You better bring some destruction yourself!|
|Liza||Yes! I'm ready to get destroyed, full blast!|
|Plumeria||Uh, that doesn't sound like quite the right attitude.|
But hey, if you're ready, then bring it!
|Drake||Very well. Then as an Elite Four member, allow me to see this battle through.|
Now fix your heart straight and true! Victory's yours if you can reach out and seize it!
- Part 4: Team Skull's...Kindness?!
|Liza||Well, we lost...but it was fun anyway!|
|Drake||Indeed. That was one mighty-fine battle.|
|Liza||Thanks, Mr. Guzma and Ms. Plumeria! You too, <player>!|
|Plumeria||Don't mention it. We got a good battle out of it, so it was a good deal for us, too.|
|Guzma||Feh. I didn't get to beat you down as bad as I really meant to.|
|Liza||Hehe. Thank you!|
|Drake||Hmm. I suspect I know what held Liza back from beating Guzma the first time.|
She may have been too caught up trying to figure out what her place was in team battles and how she should fight.
What do you mean?: All her life, she's been fighting side by side with her twin brother.
Because of this new fighting style?: Exactly. She's always fought side by side with her twin brother.
They worked so well as a team, they didn't even need to talk, and Liza could fight the way that felt natural.
With her brother gone, she was all alone. She couldn't find a natural-feeling way to fight.
So she couldn't find the strength she normally—
|Guzma||Nah. That ain't it.|
Here on Pasio, we battle three-on-three, which means you're never fighting alone.
She's used to fighting with her brother, so she oughta be a natural at working with other sync pairs.
But she couldn't see the people by her side!
She thought she was alone, so she was convinced she couldn't cut it...even though this style of battling was practically made for her!
That's what I mean when I say she built her own shell!
But that battle just now was different. She started believing in her teammates and focusing on bringing the beatdown!
|Plumeria||So basically, she quit sweating the small stuff and fought without doubts eating at her.|
But besides, you've got someone right nearby that understands you pretty well, right, Liza?
|Liza||What? But Tate's not here...|
|Plumeria||Oh, c'mon. What about your partner?|
|Liza||O-oh, of course! I'm sorry, Lunatone...|
|Plumeria||I bet Lunatone wants to be a source of support for you, too, not just the other way around.|
Don't forget that!
|Plumeria||Good. You gonna be all right now?|
|Guzma||Well, I taught her, so how could she not be?|
|Liza||Hehe. I'm glad to have such a kind mentor!|
|Guzma||Buh?! Who you callin'— I'm nobody's mentor...let alone a "kind" one!|
|Liza||I've learned so much from your wise mentorship! I'll make sure to treasure your teachings!|
And I'll keep this destructive spirit alive!
|Plumeria||Well, isn't that nice, oh wise mentor?|
|Drake||Wise and kind mentor, at that!|
|Guzma||Great mentoring, Guzma!: Shut up, shut up, shut up! All of you!|
I told you, big bad Guzma takes no apprentices!
Thanks for being our beatdown mentor, Guzma!: Hey, shut up! You ain't my apprentice! Quit taking advantage of my distraction!
- Beatdown Buddies
|Collector||Drat! They're too strong! At this rate, they're gonna completely wipe the floor with us!|
|Ace Trainer||W-we'll get you next time! C'mon, let's go!|
|Guzma||What, done already? If that's all you got, you ain't even worth my time.|
You dumb—Oh, <player>. You see that just now?
You're as fearsome as ever.: Well, big bad Guzma's always training, after all.
Having another battle?: Yeah. I'm in constant training mode for the PML.
Although those bozos just now got a long way to go if they wanna pose a challenge for Golisopod and me!
The battle wrapped up before Golisopod even got going full steam. Right, Golisopod?
He's normally pretty gentle, y'know.
But put him in battle, and he'll slice anything clean in half with his massive claws!
Come to think of it, he ain't too different from you in that sense.
You think so?: I mean, just look how kind and gentle you are most of the time, and look how fierce you turn once a battle starts!
I'm not like that!: Heh. No? Well, ain't it just like you to say that.
When we get into battle, Golisopod deals out exactly the type of destruction I dream of.
That's why I brought him to be my partner here.
And I couldn't ask for a better partner! We're gonna smash the whole competition!
So you better get ready for us!
- Can't Judge a Book by Its Cover
|Plumeria||Well, if it isn't <player>.|
Guzma's not picking fights with you, is he?
Ever since he arrived on Pasio, he's been getting more and more zealous about training.
He's like an "on" switch with no “off.” Once he's flipped, there's no stopping him.
Guzma's amazing!: Well, there's a reason he became the boss of Team Skull.
He's actually a pretty caring guy when it comes to that.
Guzma's so kind!: Is that how he seems to you? Well, I guess he can be pretty caring.
Same goes for my Salazzle, come to think of it. Well, not quite the same way as Guzma, but...
Salazzle tend to live with and command big groups of male Salandit in the wild.
Between that and the poisonous gas they give off, at first I thought I'd have a tough time connecting with this fine lady here.
But that hasn't been the case at all. We've been the best of partners.
Y'know, I've heard stories about Salazzle showing up suddenly at a gathering of people and Pokémon dancing together...
and even striking a big, dramatic pose at the end.
Hehe. Pretty bizarre, right?
That's so cute!/They sound pretty enthusiastic!: You got that right. There's something so cute about how enthusiastic Salazzle can get.
There's a lot about 'em you'd never suspect unless you got to know 'em well.
Guess it just goes to show, you can't judge a book by its cover...be it a person or a Pokémon!
- Meddling Old Folks
|Drake||I never took you for the caring type, Guzma!|
|Guzma||Huh? What're you talking about?|
|Drake||It seems like Liza's finally opened her eyes to the power she had all along, thanks to your teaching.|
Seems like you understand what it is sync pairs truly need!
|Guzma||Hmph. Being the caring teacher ain't really my style.|
But anyway, you're one to talk, Drake.
|Drake||How do you mean?|
|Guzma||Just look at you running around with these people you ain't got the slightest ties to. Leaning into that "meddling old man" image, huh?|
|Drake||Nonsense! It's only natural for an Elite Four member like me to offer my guidance to sync pairs I battle with!|
Helping bring out the best in others helps bring out the best in oneself, too.
And I consider it one of my Elite Four duties to teach other Trainers about the meaning of battle.
|Guzma||Heh. You old geezers all read off the same script, don'tcha?|
|Drake||What do you mean by that?|
|Guzma||Nothin'. Don't sweat it. Anyway, time for big bad Guzma to head out!|
Man. He talks just like Master.
I swear! This is why I can't stand old people!
- Advice from Big Sister
|Liza||I'm gonna get...even stronger!|
|Plumeria||Training time, Liza? Looks like you're working hard.|
|Liza||Oh! Ms. Plumeria!|
I appreciate you checking in on me!
|Plumeria||Nah, I just happened to be passing through.|
|Liza||You know, I was thinking about how strong and cool Mr. Guzma is...and how nice, too!|
I wonder what I should do to be more like him...
|Plumeria||Hmm... Well, if you mean getting better at Pokémon battles, that's just a matter of practice. Anyone could probably do that.|
Guzma definitely isn't perfect. He's had to get over a lot of obstacles to get where he is. There've been some he couldn't get over, too.
But all of that helped make him who he is.
So get out there, have all kinds of experiences, and keep on growing up. You'll come out the other side a stronger person.
|Liza||Keep on growing up, huh? All right! I'll do my best!|
On that note—let's battle, Ms. Plumeria!
Talking to you got me itching to get stronger as fast as I can!
|Plumeria||Well, how am I supposed to say no to that?|
- I Spy Golisopod
|Guzma||Hmph! These so-called Trainers keep running away from me...|
What's got everyone so scared of a little Pokémon battle?
What's up, Golisopod? Found an opponent?
|Bugsy||Whoa! A Golisopod!|
Amazing! I've never seen one of you up close—you're so cool!
|Guzma||What's your problem, kid? Think you can just stroll up and start chattering at my partner Pokémon?|
|Bugsy||Seems like you're normally pretty quiet, huh? Just like I've heard!|
These sharp claws of yours are just amazing!
|Guzma||Hey, you! You better pry your eyes off Golisopod and quit ignoring me!|
|Bugsy||Whoa! S-sorry! I just love Bug-type Pokémon.|
Your Pokémon is the greatest! He's so cool!
|Guzma||Ya think so? I guess he's pretty much the best partner Pokémon I could ask for.|
Most people take one look at him and get freaked out by his energy. Not many react like you did.
|Bugsy||But he's so quiet and calm when he's not on the attack, isn't he?|
My Beedrill's the same way. You'd never know what a Pokémon's really like if you just judge it by its appearance, do you?
|Guzma||True. Y'know, you kinda weird me out, but you sure do like Bug types, huh?|
|Bugsy||Your Golisopod is everything I hoped for! Mind if I keep on looking?|
|Guzma||Oh, uh...sure. Look all ya want.|
- Guzma to the Rescue
|Guzma||All right, that's enough training for now! Things are going great today!|
C'mon, Golisopod, let's head on back to town.
|Preschooler||What are we gonna dooo?|
|Guzma||... ... ...|
|Preschooler||Waaahhh! My Pokémonnn!|
|Guzma||Ugh, all right already! Whaddaya want?!|
|Preschooler||My Pokémon climbed up that tree and can't get back down!|
|Youngster||C'mon, mister, you're a grown-up! You gotta do something!|
|Guzma||Oh, do I? You're a real brat, you know that?|
This ain't got nothing to do with me. It's your partner Pokémon—you save it!
Let's go, Golisopod.
|Youngster||You're heartless, mister!|
|Guzma||Gaaah! Fine! I'll get your Pokémon!|
|Youngster||Whoa... It chopped the tree right down!|
|Preschooler||You saved my Pokémon! Thanks, mister!|
|Guzma||Yeah, yeah. Keep your eyes on it next time, got it?|
Nice work, Golisopod. Now let's go—for real this time!
- A Troubled Tate
|Plumeria||Hey. Tate, right? What're you doing here?|
|Tate||Ms. Plumeria?! H-how'd you know I was here?|
|Plumeria||Uhhh, you weren't exactly hidden. You've been trying to keep an eye on Liza, right?|
|Plumeria||It makes sense that you'd be worried about her. What did you think from watching her?|
|Tate||Well, yeah, I was watching out of worry at first...|
But then seeing her work so hard, and seeing all of you battle so passionately, I got caught up in the excitement and couldn't look away!
It lit a fire under me. I feel like I've got to work harder, too!
|Plumeria||Sounds like you've got a good bond with your sister.|
Remember how that feels and hold onto it, you hear me? Don't take it for granted.
|Tate||I won't! Thanks, Ms. Plumeria.|
But now I really want to try battling you and Mr. Guzma for myself!
|Plumeria||Fine by me. I'm up for a battle anytime you want.|
Not sure how Guzma will feel about it...but give him a try anyway.
Just don't be surprised if he's like, "Big bad Guzma's sick of babysitting little brats," or something like that.
- A Kindred Spirit?
I-I'm so sorry! I should have looked where I was going.
|Plumeria||No, no, it's my bad— Wait a second.|
Aren't you Lorelei? From the Indigo Elite Four?
And that must be your Lapras...
|Lorelei||Yes, that's us... Is something the matter?|
|Plumeria||... ... ...|
|Lorelei||What is it? Do you not see Lapras often?|
|Plumeria||Oh, kinda, I guess... I mean, I've got a stuffed toy one, but I've barely ever seen the real deal.|
|Lorelei||Ah, I see.|
(I think I may have found a kindred spirit—a fellow appreciator of all that's cute!)
I know! Why don't we have a Pokémon battle?
|Plumeria||Really? You and me?|
|Lorelei||Yes, let's do it! I'd like for you to have a chance to get to know Lapras better.|
Get ready! Here we come!
Phew. Well, what did you think?
|Plumeria||That was pretty fun. You've got yourself a good
|Lorelei||Hehe. She's a cutie, isn't she?|
Come find us anytime, even if you just want to look at her for a while! See you around, I hope!
- Ticket to Alola
|Plumeria||Y'know, Guzma, I've been wondering... What'd you come to Pasio for?|
|Guzma||I could ask you the same thing.|
|Plumeria||You out to conquer the PML?|
|Guzma||Meh. I'm not big into prestige or prizes.|
But I am big into destruction, and there are plenty of juicy targets around here.
|Plumeria||So I thought, Why not try and beat down everyone who's here to take part in the PML?|
Sounds like exactly the kind of thing you'd do.
|Guzma||Yeah? Well, what about you?|
|Plumeria||Well, I'm not really interested in the PML, either.|
But Pasio seemed like a pretty interesting place to spend some time.
But still, Guzma...
|Guzma||What? Spit it out.|
|Plumeria||Anytime you feel like heading back to Alola, I'll go with you, just so you know.|
I'm sure our little Team Skull brothers and sisters can't wait for us to get back.
|Guzma||Hmph. Do what ya want.|
|Plumeria||Well, when we do get around to heading back...wanna come with, <player>?|
Pasio's got its charms, but Alola's not half-bad, either.
You definitely wouldn't lack for Pokémon battles.
|Guzma||Cut that out, Plumeria! Alola ain't worth the trip.|
I'd love to go!: What?! You've got weird taste...
Well, whatever you want. I ain't planning on heading back for a while yet, though!
|Plumeria||It sounds like fun!: Haha. Yeah, I think you'd have a great time in Alola.|
I'll make sure to bring you out there sometime.
- Destruction with Guzma
|Guzma||Yo! There you are!|
What're you just standing there for? Yeesh. Not too reliable, are ya?
Today you'll get a crash course in beatdowns, straight from the master himself—me!
Here's your task. It's simple: smash all these rocks!
Gather all your strength, smash right through 'em, and keep moving forward!
|Guzma||Your task's simple: smash all these rocks!|
Gather all your strength, smash right through 'em, and keep moving forward!
|Guzma||Huh? What's goin' on here?|
|Masked Man||Heh! Want to free our little hostage? Well, I think we can work out a deal...if you hand over your Pokémon!|
|Beauty||Now that's playing dirty!|
|Masked Man||Good luck getting through Machamp's mighty boulder barricade! It won't break easily!|
|Guzma||A boulder barricade, huh? Well, this oughta be good!|
It's just begging to be smashed! Go for it, Golisopod!
|Guzma||Hey! What's the holdup? This ain't the time for standing around slack-jawed!|
Let's go, <player>! Time to bust some rocks...and some Team Break heads!
|Masked Man||How'd they break through so quickly?!|
|Guzma||All right, punks! What flavor of beatdown will it be today?|
|Masked Man||Eeek! N-no, spare us! We're sorry! We messed up bad!|
|Guzma||Really? Giving up already? Flimsy buncha punks, ain'tcha?|
|Masked Man||Or so we'd like you to think!|
|Guzma||Wha—?! You were back there, too? Grrr! You tricked me into letting my guard down!|
We'll save you!/Watch out!
|Masked Man||Wh-whoa! You can't just attack out of nowhere—that's cheating!|
|Guzma||Like you're one to talk!|
Well, you punks sure went and did it now. Hope you're ready for full-blast Guzma!
|Masked Man||N-nooo! We're sorry! We'll back down, for real this time!|
|Camper||Hey, uh...thanks for saving me!|
|Guzma||Hmph! Don't bother thanking us, kid. You just happened to be right in our smashing path.|
|Guzma||Huh? What's your problem? Looking to get in my way and catch a beatdown?|
Meh. After today, at least I know you ain't the type to just stand around flat-footed.
I thought about trying to cram in some more training, but ya know...I'm feelin' done! Let's call it a day.
See ya round, <player>. I'll give you a shout next time I'm feeling up to it!
- Downtime with Plumeria
|Plumeria||Oh, it's you, <player>. Fancy meeting you here.|
I heard they've got some pretty tasty cocoa at a café just past here.
I was just on my way to try it. How's that sound?
Feel free to tag along, if you want.
|Plumeria||Wow. They've got a good range of shops here, huh?|
With this many options, it's easy to get distracted from what you came for.
|Beauty||Welcome! Care to try a sample of our lovely face cream, ma'am?|
|Plumeria||Hmm. Yeah, I guess it couldn't hurt.|
What's up, <player>? You want to try it, too?
Or do you have a problem with me looking at skin care stuff?
|Beauty||How did you like that cream, ma'am?|
|Plumeria||It was pretty nice, I guess.|
|Plumeria||Aren't Stufful cute? They're like stuffed toys!|
You've got a thing for Stufful, huh?: Yeah, so what if I do?
Do you like stuffed toys a lot?: They're fine. I wouldn't say "a lot."
|Plumeria||Still...Stufful sure are cute.|
It's too bad they don't like being touched.
|Plumeria||Geez, you've got some lungs on you. What're you so upset about?|
|Preschooler||Waaah! Where'd everyone gooo? Where are they?|
|Plumeria||Uh-oh. Are you lost?|
|Preschooler||I can't find theeem! Where's the Pokémon Center?|
|Plumeria||Ah. So you'll be able to find who you're looking for if we get you to the Pokémon Center?|
*sigh* Well, we can't just leave you here, can we? Come on—let's bring you back.
|Preschooler||Ah! They're here!|
Thanks for bringing me back here, lady!
|Plumeria||Just try not to get lost again, all right?|
Tch. Cute, little troublemaker...
Looks like we ended up back at home base.: *sigh* It's fine. We can always try to go for cocoa some other time.
Still want that cocoa?: *sigh* I'm good. We'll try to go again sometime soon.
Oh well. We got a pretty fun walk out of it, right, <player>?
Anyway, see you around.
