In the gameEdit

Spoiler warning!
This article contains plot details about events that occur later in the game.

Bennett is first met outside the Spinel Gym, when a PokeMart was teleported to the roof of the Gym. He requests to battle the player before the player battles Serra, as he thinks that this is the most efficient way of training to be a future Gym Leader. After losing to the player, El finds potential in Bennett and invites Bennett to follow him.

Spinel Gym battle speech
Pre-battle speech

[Bennett]: <player>. You seem to be doing well.

[Bennett]: I'll cut right to the chase. I would be much obliged if I could battle you.

[Bennett]: That is, I do request to battle with all of mother's challengers.

[Bennett]: As I hope to be a gym leader one day myself, is this not the most effective way to prepare myself?

[Bennett]: Then please, allow me to test myself against you!

Post-battle speech

[El]: Impressive, young ones.

[El]: I believe you both have been gifted by Arceus' light.

[Bennett]: I don't believe it's any such 'light,' but instead diligence and commitment.

[El]: And such diligence will indeed take you far.

[El]: But, Bennett, would you believe me if I told you that you were dreaming too small?

[Bennett]: Too small, sir?

[El]: Yes. You say you want to be a gum leader, but I believe that with your determination you could even go so far as to join the Elite Four.

[Bennett]: That-- that would be... unthinkable! The Elite Four, really?

[Bennett]: That sounds fantastic, but-- as you can see, I still have a long way to go before I even have a chance...

[El]: Perhaps. But for someone of your dedication. I believe I may be able to be of service.

[El]: Let us leave your friend to their challenge.

[El]: We will discuss the details elsewhere, and you may find yourself in a new position in time.

[Bennett]: Do... do you really mean that?!

[El]: I do.

[Bennett]: Then let's go right away, Mr El! Follow me!

[El]: Blessings to yo as well, <player>.

[El]: All is reflected in the eyes of the Lord. Do remember this.

Iolia Valley battle speech
Pre-battle speech

[Luna]: Welcome, <player>. I am glad you have reached here safely.

[???]: Luna!

[Bennett]: ...I finally found you!

[Luna]: How can this be...? Only <player> was supposed to reach me here...

[Bennett]: I tagged along. I want to aplogize, Luna...

[Luna]: There is no need to apologize. I hold nothing against you. Now please, if you will, leave us be? We have business, after all...

[Bennett]: No, Luna-- you don't understand. I just. I want what's best for you, and I was really confused and--

[Luna]: Bennett, it is quite all night. You need not say anymore.

[Bennett]: No, I-- Luna, I love you!

[Luna]: ...I beg your pardon?

[Bennett]: Ever since you first moved in with us, I couldn't stop thinking about you.

[Bennett]: You are, without a doubt, the most beautiful girl I have ever seen, and-- I, um--

[Luna]: Please, stop...

[Bennett]: Luna, would you be mine!

[Luna]: ...I'm sorry, but I have to go now.

[Luna]: <player>...? He will not be able to follow me without the crystal keys you hold, so please join me when you are sure we will be unaccompanied...

[Luna]: That is... farewell.

[Bennett]: No, wait, you-- you haven't even given me a proper answer...

[Bennett]: ...Hah... She disappeared again, huh...

[Bennett]: Maybe she's just shy... Maybe she feels the same way and doesn't want to admit it...

[Bennett]: ...Or maybe I'm just pathetic.

[Bennett]: That's what you're thinking, right?

[Bennett]: But she's letting you through... Why...

[Bennett]: ...I know. <player>, why don't you give me that Key she was talking aboout?

[Bennett]: And if you say 'no'... Then... I'll just have to take it from you.

Post-battle speech

[Bennett]: ...In the end, I'm just a fool, aren't I?

[Bennett]: Stupid.

[Bennett]: Stupid to think that she would love me... Stupid to tell her... Stupid to think that I could beat you... Stupid that my training hasn't paid off...

[Bennett]: ...yet...

[Bennett]: ...I'm going. Elias promised he would take me to the top, and I'll hold him to that... And when I'm there... she'll regret refusing me now.

[Bennett]: Just watch me, <player>! One day, you'll see... Everyone will see...

[Bennett]: ...Good luck in your battle.

[Bennett]: I promise, next time you see me... things will be different

Gossip Gardevoir's interview intermission!

Hello! Gossip Gardevoir here in Interview Intermission, bringing YOU the inside scoop on Reborn's celebrity figures!

Today, we've got a special report with Bennett Voclain, a studious, slightly annyoing, especially awkward, up and coming Bug Type Trainer!

Hello, Bennett! Tell us, what--

BENNETT: Gardevoir, what are you doing in my room?

GARDEVOIR: It's an interview, just go with it!

BENNETT: That's-- wait, is this live?

GARDEVOIR: Sure is! Bennett, tell us how--

BENNETT: Okay, no, please get out of my room; I am trying to study here!

GARDEVOIR: Oh, studying! And what--

BENNETT: Go, go go go. I'll tell mom on you, Gardevoir.

GARDEVOIR: Insolent! How dare you threaten me, the great Gossip--

  • SLAM*

GARDEVOIR: Did you just slam that in MY face?

Bennett?! Bennett!!!

Ooooooh... When I get off air, I'm going to-- In fact...

That's all on today's Interview Intermission. Until next time!

Travia Edit

  • Bennett's name is a word play on 'net'.
  • Glasses are clearly seen on the VS sprite and Overworld sprite, however they are absent on the Trainer sprite. This was fixed in later updates.
  • Hints in the game suggest that Bennett is now a member of the Elite Four, replacing Laura.
