There's not exactly much actually said. They say they're always going off to faraway regions such as Kanto (likes the Clefairy), Johto (likes the history), Hoenn (likes the different towns) and Sinnoh (likes the Great Marsh), they're always busy with their job, and they have Pokemon around them. But mostly they just say random things like asking if you've been to the Battle Institute.
So they're celebrity idols? I guess that kind of explains the headphones...kind of. I thought they may have been announcers.
I love how the only thing worth noting about Kanto is the Clefairy :P

Translation of some of Marlon's line, originally posted by myriada on serebii forums:
LOL, I love this guy.
So I'm assuming he's Truly Neutral in the alignment department, doing what he feels he wants to do. Makes no sense considering how leaders were built in BW to serve a greater purpose in the grand scheme of things, and now they put them back into second seat checkpoints for game progress. Gamefreak give us better character development this time round, but completely screws up in the general world building.
Going by the lines we're already given in the English website, I'd say that's a pretty good translation of how he's going to talk. Probably a better translation though.....
true neutral character rather than making him stupid neutral. You've got to hand it to Game Freak there, being able to create a character who doesn't judge others based on what he is told of them.
$10 says that people on TVTropes call him stupid neutral since they clearly don't even read their own trope pages when applying examples.
Technically, doesn't Corless count as True Neutral as well? He only researched for Team Plasma purely for his own interest in finding out how to unleash a Pokémon's true potential regardless of what happens to Unova, and then tells the player how to find Ghetsis "because he really doesn't like him to begin with" and because the player opened his eyes to an alternate way of unleashing a Pokemon's potential.

The Alignment System - Chaotic Neutral
Once he saw someone kick his and then some, he skipped town, disbanded Plasma and found his own little world to escape to.
So I guess that's the part where he gives "passionate advice". Huh.
Meowth's voice in my head. ._.; Must be all those "dats". Is that how you translate a Kyushu accent?
I think it would be hard to find an english analogue for the various Japanese dialects, so they might have to make do with something else. This one anime I saw gave a person from Osaka a southern accent. o_0
Do you think Corocoro goofed with Shizui? It mentioned him as "helping the player" or something, along with "bighearted" and "giving passionate advice". It made me think he was going to be like Alder and meet the PC a few times through out the game. The latter two I could sort of see in the actual game dialogue. (my sig might be a liiiiiiiie baaaaaw)
I still like the dude a lot, but I'm a bit disappointed in what I had hoped him to be (and had a very good reason for leaving them at the frigate).
I don't know Marlon, pretty sure when someone's goal literally involves freezing an entire region, there's no gray-area. :/
Marlon isn't really obligated to care about what happens or not with Unova. Maybe the deaths of a lot of people and Pokémon does not bother him.
We can see from the official English site that they're basically giving Marlon a laid-back way of speaking.
As for why he's not helping, his philosophy is to not judge others based on what people say about them. Sure, you say Team Plasma is evil, but he has no first hand experience with either Plasma or the Player Character....a person could easily just say someone's evil to turn them against you. I think that's the main point.
