Characters and Items






[when facing Steelix]
Ash: [thinking] Okay. Guess I’d better get things movin’. [aloud] Buizel, Water Gun, let’s go!

Ash: Time for my final Pokémon! Gliscor, I choose you! [sends in Gliscor]
Gliscor: Gliscor!
Dawn: What’s he doing? If Ash wanted to attack from above, wouldn’t Staravia be better?
Piplup: Lup!
Brock: Ash chose Gliscor after carefully considering Bastiodon’s moves. This is Gliscor’s first battle, so we should expect great things.

[Before Gliscor is about to be hit by Bastiodon’s Iron Head]
Ash: Gliscor, heads up!

[when both Bastiodon and Gliscor are exhausted]
Ash: [thinking] They’re both runnin’ out of gas. The next attack’s gonna decide the battle. [aloud] Gliscor, use X-Scissor, and attack it straight on!

[After Gliscor performed a sneak attack on Bastiodon, knocking it out]
Roark: Bastiodon is unable to battle, and Gliscor’s the winner! The victory goes to Ash from Pallet Town!
Ash: [excited] All right, Gliscor, we did it!
Gliscor: Gliscor! [glomps Ash, giggling] Gliscor, Gliscor, Gli, Gliscor.
Dawn: That was great, Ash!
Piplup: Piplup!
Brock: Great how you considered Byron's and your Pokémon's type and played up Gliscor's strong points.
Ash: Thanks, Brock. But in the end, it was just Gliscor’s spunk. [to Gliscor] Not bad for a first Gym battle, Gliscor. Not bad at all.
Gliscor: [happily sticks its tongue out] Gli, Gliscor.
