[flapping its wings]

Ash Ketchum: [holds up Gliscor's Poké-Ball] Okay, Gliscor, time for bed.
Gliscor: [reluctant] Scor!
Ash Ketchum: But Gliscor, you've gotta get some rest.
Brock: I guess Gliscor's got a lot to think about.
Ash Ketchum: [sadly] Guess so.

[after Gliscor's air battle training; in the morning]
McCann: Really? You want an air battle with me again?
Maya: Even though Gliscor wasn't able to land a single hit before?
Ash Ketchum: Yes, we do. We're asking for another chance, please.
Pikachu: Pika.
Piplup: Piplup.
Dawn: Oh, please, sir. Ash and Gliscor worked really hard all night long learning to read the wind.
Brock: They get it now.
Ash Ketchum: 'Course, we might not be able to beat Scizor after this, but still. We really wanna check how far we've come, and look at Gliscor's progress.
Gliscor: [determined] Gli!
McCann: Dear, what should I do?
Maya: Well, there's always more time to kill, so why not?

[while Ash and co. are sleeping, Pikachu goes outside, where Gliscor is gazing at the moon, still mourning about his loss]
Pikachu: [off-screen] Pika, Pika?
Gliscor: Gli.
Pikachu: Pikachu.
Ash Ketchum: [approaches them] Gliscor.
Gliscor: [looks away] Gli.
Ash Ketchum: Too upset to sleep, huh?
Gliscor: Scor.
Ash Ketchum: Hey, what do you say we take a whack at trying to read the wind, just like McCann said?
Gliscor: [heads up] Gli?
[grins]
Gliscor: Scor.

[after everyone appreciated Gliscor's improved skills used in the rematch with Scizor]
McCann: Tell me, Ash. How would you like to leave Gliscor with me for a little training?
Ash Ketchum: Leave Gliscor here?
McCann: If your Gliscor was able to read the wind that well in just one night, there's a making of a great pupil here.
Ash Ketchum: [astonished] Whoa. I don't know what to say.
McCann: It's quite amazing how this reminds me of the very first time I met Scizor. It's been a long time since I've met a Pokémon I wanted to train.
Gliscor: [shocked] Gliscor?
[stares at the ground, thinking]
Gliscor: Gli...

[when the gang asks McCann to battle Ash's Gliscor]
Maya: Why not? Since you're retired, there's not that much to do.
McCann: Perhaps. Might be a nice way to kill some time.
[Both Dawn and Brock sweatdrop and chuckle at this, while Gliscor gives a "I don't get it" look]
Ash Ketchum: Kill some time, huh?

[Bonsly fakes crying by using Fake Tears]
Ash: Hey!
[to Brock while scowling]
Ash: That wasn't nice!
May: You didn't have to shout!

Lucario: You humans are all alike! You can't be trusted!
Ash: Are you saying you don't trust me?
Lucario: You'd leave Pikachu without hesitating if you had to!
Ash: There's no way I'd ever run out on Pikachu!
Lucario: Humph... your word means nothing.
[turns to go]
Ash: [growls] How do we know Sir Aaron deserted the queen like you say? How about you tell us the real story, Lucario? You deserted Sir Aaron and the Queen didn't you?
Lucario: [turns around angrily] WHAT DID YOU SAY?
May: [crosses her arms at Ash] Ash, you're not helping!
Ash: [to May, says calmly] I didn't start it.
Lucario: What makes you think that Pikachu didn't run off and desert you cause it didn't want you for a master?
[Starts walking off]
Ash: [growls] Take it back!
[He throws himself at Lucario, the two wrestle in the river until Lucario leaps out and walks off]
May: [later that night as Ash is drying himself off] That was so uncalled for!
Ash: So what? It shouldn't have said Pikachu left me.
May: Well, you know, you said some pretty terrible things to Lucario too.
Ash: [He looks down] ... yeah.

Sir Aaron: [sits down and receives damage] Lucario, forgive me.
Lucario: I do Master.
Sir Aaron: Please understand. I had to seal you inside the staff. I knew if I didn't you'd follow me here and suffer the same fate.
[places his gloves down]
Sir Aaron: I only wish you could have known the real story.
Lucario: [gasps] I understand!
Sir Aaron: One day you will be released in a peaceful and more distant time. What would it be like? I wonder if-
[takes damage and begins to disappear]
Sir Aaron: I have no regrets. My journey has been good. I served a beautiful queen and you and I shared many adventures.
[closes his eyes]
Sir Aaron: Those memories will always be with me.
Lucario: [begins to tear up] Master! If you could only hear me, I want to tell you how much you mean to me.
Sir Aaron: Lucario, farewell.
[Lucario gasps]
Sir Aaron: [only his head remains] You were more to me than just my student. You are my closest friend.
Lucario: I feel the same.
Sir Aaron: Who knows? It could be... one day... we will see each other again.
[a single tear falls]
Sir Aaron: I hope so my friend.
[finally disappears fully]
Sir Aaron: [the Time Flower ends]
Lucario: [cries] Aaron, my friend. I'm sorry I failed you.
Ash: [holds Lucario's paw] That's not true. You proved you're a true Guardian of Aura like Sir Aaron.
Pikachu: Pika.
Lucario: Thank you, Ash.
[Ash nods]
Lucario: [Lucario takes massive damage]
Ash: Lucario! Please, hang on! You can't leave us yet.
Lucario: I have to go Ash. Aaron is waiting for me.
[dissappears]
Lucario: [Lucario and Aaron's spirits join together and fly up to the sky]

Ash: [after being headlocked by Lucario] Whyd did you do that?
Lucario: You snuck up behind me; that is always a mistake.
Ash: Hey Lucario, I'm really glad you're coming along to help me find Pikachu.
Lucario: This Pikachu, are you its master?
Ash: Master? Are you kidding? No Pikachu and I are best friends.
Lucario: Friends?
Ash: If one of your friends was lost, you'd wanna bring 'em too, wouldn't ya?
Lucario: I don't have any friends and I don't want any.
[leaves the room]
Ash: [sarcastically] Nice attitude.

Narrator: Today, Ash, Brock and Misty are taking a break from their Pokémon adventures. As always, Ash is determined to become a Pokémon master. And, as always, he's ready to endure any hardship, bear any burden... with strength, stamina and a will of steel.
Ash Ketchum: Hungry. Need food.
Misty: Oh, Ash! You haven't done a thing all day!
Ash Ketchum: I'm too weak to work, Misty. I haven't eaten since breakfast.
Brock: This lunch is going to be just perfect for you, Ash. It's my lazy-boy 'no-chew' stew.

Ash Ketchum: The world's greatest Pokémon master is waiting for me. Let's use our Pokémon to get to that island.

Brock: I should have known there was something fishy about them besides the way they smell!
Jesse: Haha! Prepare for trouble!
James: Make it double!
Meowth: Forget the motto. We're going to have to... aaah!
[another tidal wave sweeps over, knocking everyone out of the boat]

Misty: [after Ash has been challenged to a Pokemon match] Ash, you just said you were too weak to work.
Ash Ketchum: That's right, I am too weak to work. But a Pokemon battle isn't work.
Brock: That's progress. At least his mouth is working.
[Japanese version]
Kasumi: I thought you weren't be able to move a millimeter.
Satoshi: I can do one or two Pokémon battles before breakfast.
Takeshi: This is lunch, by the way. So it'd before your afternoon meal.

Kasumi: [When Mewtwo is stealing the Pokémon with the Clone Balls] Are you stealing other people's Pokémon?
Mewtwo: Stealing? No. I'm making copies stronger than the Pokémon you're so proud of.
Takeshi: Copies?
Satoshi: Stop it! That's against the rules!
Mewtwo: Don't give me orders.
[Throws Satoshi into Takeshi]
Mewtwo: I'll decide my own rules.
[Sends the Clone Balls to steal the Pokémon]

[still didn't revive him]
Pikachu: [Pikachu continues shocking Satoshi, but to no avail]
Pikachu: Chu! Chu! Chu! Chu!
Kasumi: Pikachu.
Pikachu: [exhausting its Thundershock] Chu!
[panting]
Pikachu: Chu!
[didn't shock Satoshi this time]
Pikachu: [panting before starting to cry]
