Something about how little insects can go from what they are to something so much more is just so exciting!

Bennett Voclain is the son of Serra, and a specialist in Bug-types.

Bennett is very studious and knowledgeable, but isn't very socially adept. He can usually go on tangent about his interests despite what other thinks. Bennett can be quite self deprecating to himself at times and lashes out on other due to his insecurities.

In the gameEdit

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.

After the gym battle ends, Serra returns to her living room and tells the player that Bennett left to go study with El to join the Elite Four. While talking, she mentions how Luna and Gossip Gardevoir also chose to leave Serra, and how all things seem to fade away. This is also a reference to her previous life as a former model before choosing to leave her career behind to take care of Bennett.

After the player goes to 7th Street to find Luna, the player finds Bennett. He leads the player into Subseven Sanctum, where the player is tricked by Bennett and El and caged up. After the player manages to sneak and maneuver their way around the guards and solve the biblical gate code, Luna is found before El can begin their ritual to forget all about Radomus, with Cain being held as a hostage by Bennett. However, Radomus and Gardevoir ambushed El and his disciples.

While traversing through Iolia Valley, the player will find Bennett along the way, who is searching for Luna in order to apologize (and admit his feelings for her). After meeting up with Luna, Bennett catches up and tries to apologize and confess, only to be turned away by Luna who returns to her gym chambers where she can't be followed. Bennett will challenge the player to a battle in order to retrieve the key. Once defeated, Bennett calls himself stupid for even trying and leaves, and tells the player the next time they meet, it will be different.

He is indirectly mentioned by Charlotte and Laura when Charlotte tells the player that Laura was laid off by Ame from the Elite Four suddenly. Ame then later mentions Bennett to register his types for the Elite Four, wondering why Laura suddenly resigned from the Elite Four.

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

Bennett appears again in the Glass Workstation, with a new outfit and acts diffrent than before. He explains that this was was a trap that the two perfectly fell into: it was intentionally set up so that the only glass that would break would be the one that lead to the elevator shaft. Now that the player and Hardy are funneled into a small area, they are both rendered unconscious by the same means as the sleeping spell over Agate City.

Zero is later found with Bennett in the Glass Factory, controlling the PULSE-Hypno responsible for Agate City's sleepy veil. He talks to the player like if Eve and Lumi were still inside him, indicating he might suffer from schizophrenia. He reveals that PULSE-Hypno was mentally controlling Cain and Shelly, and command them to battle the player. After the latter wins, Bennett tells Zero to let Shelly go, only to take control of the player instead.

After the player escapes Gardevoir's black hole, Radomus explains what happened while the player was under the PULSE-Hypno's control. After Gardevoir used the black hole in order to protect Radomus, Zero and Bennett argued over what happened, and Bennett says Zero is a high-ranked Team Meteor member only thanks to Eve and Lumi, as he was a simple grunt before the Magneton/Magnezone event. After Gardevoir created the black hole, Zero is told by Bennett to report the events of what happened to their superiors in Labradorra City, but Bennett immediately regrets this and asks Laura to catch Zero before it's too late, despite being the one to take the Elite Four position from her. Laura forgives him and Bennett gives her the Sapphire Bracelets since it belonged to her family. Both of them go to Labradora City together, which Saphira finds out later and tells the player if anything happens to Laura, Bennett will regret it.

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.</span>

[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 about?

[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

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?

Travia Edit

  • Bennett's name is a word play on 'net'.
  • Glasses are clearly seen on the VS sprite and Overworld sprite, however they used to be absent on the Trainer sprite in earlier versions.
  • During the online league, Bennett's ace pokemon was Butterfree. When he came back for season 3, he changed it to Volcarona instead. Both pokemon are still on his team currently.
    • His overworld outfit change during the story is also a reference to his outfit change during the league.
    • Apparently Laura and Bennett dated during the online League, which happens to coincide with them being in the Elite Four in-game. [1]
