Yo Trainer! You had me counting the days on my fingers waiting for you to come. I heard from Volkner what you did in Sunyshore. You managed to light a fire in that guy's heart again. How could you not expect me to look forward to seeing you in battle? You're facing a Fire-type Pokémon user with me. Let Flint see how hot your spirit burns!

Quotes

Pokémon Diamond and Pearl

When met in Sunyshore City

Yo! Fellow Trainer! Your Pokémon are secure inside their Poké Balls, but there's no masking that aura of serious toughness! Oops, sorry, I should introduce myself. The name's Flint! I'm one of the Pokémon League's Elite Four! I just had this idea. Maybe you can pull it off. It's about this town's Gym Leader. He's really lost his enthusiasm lately because there've been so few good challengers worth his time. He's so bored, he spends all his time renovating the Gym. And then the blackout happened... That sure didn't help lift his mood. You know where I'm going with this, don't you? I need you to give him a battle that's so hot, it will reignite his passion for battling. I'm counting on you, hotshot!"

Before battle

"Yo Trainer! You had me counting the days on my fingers waiting for you to come. I heard from Volkner what you did in Sunyshore. You managed to light a fire in that guy's heart again. How could you not expect me to look forward to seeing you in battle?"

When sending out last Pokémon

"I can feel your determination. Your will is overpowering me!"

When last Pokemon is at 50% health or below

"This situation... This is heating up! I'm blazing now!"

When defeated

"...! I wasn't expecting this! I wasn't looking down on you... But I didn't think for one second that I'd lose! This is fantastic! You and your Pokémon are inspiring!"

After being defeated

"...Whew... Burnt right down to cinders..."

If talked to again

.........Keep going...

Pokémon Platinum

When met in Sunyshore City

Flint's quotes in Sunyshore City are identical to those in Diamond and Pearl.

Before battle

"Yo Trainer! You had me counting the days on my fingers waiting for you to come. I heard from Volkner what you did in Sunyshore. You managed to light a fire in that guy's heart again. How could you not expect me to look forward to seeing you in battle? You're facing a Fire-type Pokémon user with me. Let Flint see how hot your spirit burns!"

When sending out last Pokémon

"I can feel your determination. Your will is overpowering me!"

When last Pokemon is at 50% health or below

"This situation... This is heating up! I'm blazing now!"

When defeated

"...! I don't believe it! I lost! I didn't take you for granted... But I didn't expect you to win! I'd never even considered it! I'm blown away by this! You and your Pokémon are hot stuff!"

After being defeated

"...Whew... Burnt right down to cinders..."

If talked to again

.........Keep going...I know your spirit burns hot. Your whole team does.

Before battle (Rematch)

"I was waiting for you, challenger! Flint, the master of the Fire-type, is up next! Battles are clashes of the burning spirit of Pokémon. Battles aren't about appearances or what's weak or strong. It all comes down to whether the combatants can burn hot or not."

Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

Prior to defeating Cynthia, Flint's quotes are identical to those in Diamond and Pearl.

Rematch

  • Before battle
    • "Yo, Trainer! I've been waiting on the edge of my seat for you to come! I've been training myself for this moment, so you won't catch me running out of gas again! I won't just bring the heat – I'm going supernova! Hope you're warmed up, because here comes the Big Bang!"
  • During battle
    • While sending in last Pokémon
      • "Hey, I'm about to go full throttle!"
    • When defeated
      • "Incredible! Your moves are so hot, they make mine look lukewarm!"
  • After battle
    • "... ... ... Whew. Burnt right down to cinders...

Rematch (Boss level)

  • Before battle
    • "Yo, <player>! I've been boiling over waiting to see you again! Any battle with you is guaranteed to get heated. But right now, my soul is burning at 15 million degrees – hotter than the surface of the sun!"
  • During battle
    • While sending in last Pokémon
      • ""Hey, I'm about to go full throttle!"
    • When defeated
      • "Unbelievable! What burning passion! You're like the sun to your own solar system, <player>!"
  • After battle
    • "... ... ... Whew. Burnt right down to cinders...

Trivia

  • While Flint's original team has fewer actual Fire types than non-Fire types, the non-Fire types also know Fire-type moves and fit thematically: Drifblim is a hot air balloon, Steelix would likely be formed by intense heat and pressure, and Lopunny is on his team either because it has warm, fluffy fur or because it resembles a human woman somewhat and is thus meant to be figuratively hot (i.e. attractive).
