    This conversation between the Trial Captains and some of the Kahuna's about Sophocle's newest invention is just hilarious. Spoilers as usual as this is from Pokemon Adventures Sun & Moon.

    Sophocles - In an unexpected turn of events, this contraption ended up being able to fly. So, me and Molayne remade it to be big enough to fit people inside!
    Lana - I-is this the device from before that couldn't summon the Totem Pokemon? Not even once?
    Mallow - This is going to be a failure!
    Kiawe - ...
    Acerola - Eh!? That's totally going to crash! Acerola's gonna pass.
    Ilima - And where do you think you're going Mina?
    Mina - Er...
    Olivia - I uh... I'll think I'll hitch a ride on Skarmoy with Kahili.
    Kahili - ...
    Hapu - I'm not going near that thing unless it's my Mudsdale.
    Nanu - Yeah... I'm old and get motion sick, kid. I'm gonna pass.
    Sophocles - ... IT WILL FLY IF I SAY IT WILL FLY! HURRY UP AND GET ON!

    Steven stopping the player en route to the Cave of Origin to ask, out of the blue:

    "Do you think Pokemon should be feared?"

    It's a very timely question given that Groudon and Kyogre are presently destroying the world, and one that the series hasn't really touched upon before or since. Given how much of the dialogue earlier in the series revolves around assuming the player is hopelessly devoted to collections of pixels, it's unusual that the writers actually cut straight to the heart of what the player is thinking in these circumstances.

    And the answer has to be 'Yes', right? For every Squirtle we befriend there's an Ursaring just around the corner ready to gnaw our bones.

    "Strong Pokémon. Weak Pokémon. That is only the selfish perception of people. Truly skilled trainers should try to win with their favorites. I like your style. You understand what's important."

    - Karen, Elite Four


    This quote has stuck with me since I was a child. It is how I play both Pokémon and all fighting games. As Dookieshed put it best, Karen summed up the entire point of video games in general. We don't play it because of some strict, calculating desire to be superior. We play it because it's f**kin' fun.
