"Oh hello, I'm Donna and you are? ...oh, you are (Player's name), nice to meet you!
Isn't this garden beautiful! I come here all the time to relax after my gym battles, it's very relaxing! Oh, I'm the gym leader here, well I'm the new one, I've taken over from my father, he retired and made me the new leader, it's stressful but I think I'm finding my feet! Well, I should better get back to the gym, there could be trainers waiting for me! See you, (Player's name)!"'
"Oh hey (Player's name)! I'm glad you came! Well this is the gym... Well, my Gym, I guess. This used to belong to my dad, so I just started growing my roses here. I've loved Poison-type Pokémon since I was born. They can be tough, but beautiful, too. Just like every rose has its thorns! Lets do our best, okay? Choose up to three Pokémon for our battle!"
"I need a bit more training..."
After being defeated
"Even though I lost, that was a good battle! I've got a lot more to learn it seems. I'm happy to give you this. That's the official Gym Badge of Serpentine City, the Thorn Badge! Oh! Take this, too! It's a Poison-type move. It has a chance of making a foe become burned with a fever! Thanks for the battle. Good luck on your journey!"
