    Indeed, it's why he's my favorite rival at the moment. Was there a rival before Hugh who focused so much on his family? Props to him for being a wonderful Brother Wolf (the sibling Papa Wolf?), even if he does let his rage get the best of him at times.

    As for his battling style, I think it's rather neat that his battle style is weaker than yours, though. He constantly mentions the player to watch his back, so maybe he knows he's not a very strong battler, and it's WHY he's so rage-filled, knowing he was weak back then, and is still weak now, and he has to count on the player to help him become strong too. It's very nice to have a rival who ISN'T obsessed with defeating the player.

    Well, we know what Alder's dead partner was now. And I'm happy my theory on it was correct.

    Still the Unova Champion in my book.

    And yet Game Freak had the real players stay in Unova. Replacing the player characters doesn't change that fact.

    More context on the quote?

    Though it wasn't really that hard to figure out...even though Alder's family make Volcarona look like common Caterpie. I wonder why he calls it Larvesta first before correcting himself. Maybe it died very shortly after evolution.

    Must suck for his second Volcarona being a replacement.

    There's also a bit of inconsistency with the quotes (translated from Japanese text):
    Ghetsis: Oh my, so this is the Champion Alder. You lost a long-time Pokémon partner of yours to illness some years back.

    N:You lost a Pokémon to illness years ago, a partner. You wandered Unova searching for something to fill that hole... It's been quite some time since you last earnestly fought, hasn't it? That part of you may despise it, but... As one far, far stronger than the Champion, I shall give Unova an order. An order to all Trainers, to release their Pokémon!
    It's weird Alder calls it Larvesta. I'm wondering if it died shortly after he became Champion?

    After winning the Champions Tournament, the ones you fought are sitting in the PWT lobby, and they give you advice and congratulations and such. Alder just happens to say that the spirit of his first partner lives on in his current partners as well.

    Still the Unova Champion in my book.

    You dim-witted...dense...dumb...daft...dippy...dorky...doltish DOOFUS!
    Oh, that crazy Roxie.

    This game has more entertaining dialogue than it's predecessor, I've found. Granted, you still get the dull blather like "My Patrat went up a level in the tall grass!" or "I love training with my pokemon, it's fun!" but overall I think it's getting better.
    Pokewood is great, I like the different accents and attitudes of the directors, and some of the movie dialogue is priceless, especially Sabrina's.
    "A-and it's not like I want your money or anything!"
    B-baka!

    During your rematch with Shauntal she mentions to be writing a story about two Elite 4 members with similar names and appearances but little of anything else is known of them.

    Well at least they finally addressed those theories, even though we still have no answers.
    Shauntal is a fanfic writer

    She's writing a story about Bertha and Agatha huh? That's kinda neat dude.

    Shauntal ships all the ships.

    Colress' little speech on people not being able to talk to Pokémon was wonderfully ironic. I was all, "OH HOW LITTLE YOU KNOW~".

    Speaking of Colress, I thought it was a bit underwhelming how he was revealed to be Plasma-dan's boss. D: I couldn't understand the Japanese version, so I was slightly disappoint when the scene was like "btw im the plasma boss, let's battle". Big-G had more going for him than that, dude.

    After going through Ghetsis' and Colress' dialogue, I am thoroughly convinced the latter was responsible for Genesect. Or at least Gamefreak had that concept in mind.

    It's just fits too well.

    Except the scientist who actually created Genesect from BW1 is still present in BW2 to give you the drives.

    Marlon's dialogue is slightly painful to read. It's like the translators just dropped in slang words at random.

    Honestly I don't get why they didn't change that. Colress is literally a few dozen feet away from the event, and would be a far better character for it than some random NPC. It's not like the scientist from BW1 precludes his involvement either, as Genesect's OT is "Plasma" instead of "Dudley" and the Pokedex entries speak of the group as a whole talking about who modified it.

    Similar questions can be asked about many things in BW2 though, really...
