Quotes

Goldune Cave

''Sorry! It wasn't at the Gym, but I couldn't resist the urge to uncover these Fossils! I tripped over a piece that was poking out of the ground and just had to dig them up! Awesome, right!?''

''Oh. Sorry. I guess we can go back, now... but the Fossils I don't want to just leave them! Do you know that you can get Pokémon from these Fossils? There's a building in Goldune City. A scientist named Burke can revive them using a special machine. You guys should take a Fossil each and get them revived!''

  • If the player tries to get away

''Hey! You should choose a Fossil!''

  • If the player looks the Plate Fossil

''Do you want the Plate Fossil?''

  • If the player looks the Teeth Fossil

''Do you want the Teeth Fossil?''

  • If the player answers "no"

''Choose carefully!''

  • After choosing the Fossil

''I guess you really do want to battle. Okay! We'll go, now!

Goldune Gym

  • Before battle

''Oh. Hey, do I know you from somewhere else? Ah, yes! You're the Trainer from the cave! Welcome to my Gym! Glad you made it! So, you want to have a battle? You should know that I specialize in Ground-type Pokémon. They are powerful with high Attack and Defense stats but, normally, they are not the fastest ones. Let's do it ! I won't go easy!''

  • Being defeated

''I'm stuck in the quicksand...''

  • After being defeated

''That was awesome! I can tell you're gonna go far on your journey! You have earned this. Awesome, huh? Oh, and you get this. It's an attack that can trap foes in sand and hurt them every turn. Good luck with everything! Make sure your adventure is awesome!''
