| Before Battle: "I'm Hikaru! Gotta get past me before gettin' to Higa! Okay, 'nuff talkin'. Let's get this party started!"
After first hit: "I see you're packing the heat! But I'm not gonna lose to ya yet!"
Upon releasing last Pokemon: "Whew! But who cares? I'm not gonna lose so easily!"
When last Pokemon has less than 30% HP: "Oh... We'll just give it all we've got! Get ready for our strongest, <PLAYER>!"
Upon defeat: "You really burned me out. Thanks for the awesome battle. Higa will definitely enjoy battling with a fiery spirit like you, <PLAYER>."
Upon Giving HM 02 Traverse: "Here you go!" "I know Higa's a little difficult to understand, but then again, it could be his temper. Here is Traverse. This lets your Pokemon surf on water if it is a water type. And if taught to a fire type, it could surf on lava instead! The type of the move depends on the Pokemon it was taught to. I know you'll be able handle the heat, and use it to your advantage. Good luck on your journey, <PLAYER>!"
