Now hold still. You might feel a little shock...

Dr. Sigmund Connal, also referred to as Sigmund, is a resident psychiatrist to Reborn City and the administrator to the City Orphanage. He's also a specialist in Electric-types.

Sigmund is fairly calm and mature most of the time, but he can be cold and ruthless if situations don't go his way. Despite his methods and reasons for taking care of the children in the orphanage, he genuinely believes that he's doing the right thing and for their own good.

In the game

Sigmund first encountered when the player first enters the City Orphanage, where he asks what the noise was about. Anna tells Sigmund that the player was wondering about the gym leaders in the orphanage (Charlotte and Noel). Sigmund says that he does have talented individuals that inherit or earned high ranking positions, and decides to test the player's skills by having one of his orderlies battle them. After the battle, Sigmund explains that they cannot battle Noel or Charlotte due to renovating the arena (which Ame said he used that excuse months ago). Anna then shoos the player out, saying to not let Shelly come here.

When Heather decides to run away from Cain and Shelly, she runs into Sigmund and acts rude to him. Sigmund then asks if her parents taught her any manners, which Shelly replies that both her parents arn't around anymore. Sigmund asks Heather if she would want a home in his orphanage, which Heather says no girl would ever want to be around him. Sigmund then explains that his orphanage is legally resposible for all orphaned children in Reborn City if they don't have a legal guardian. Heather is then taken by Sigmund to the orphanage because she is underage and has no legal guardian

The player returns to the orphanage with Cain and Shelly in order to rescue Heather. Sigmund is later cornered by Charlotte, Cain and Noel, with the Doctor admitting that he is now outnumbered, however, Charlotte decides to burns him with her cigarette, which Cain tells her she didn't need to leave a scar. Charlotte then replies its revenge for giving her sisters and herself even worse scars and doesn't feel bad. This forces him to free Heather from the clutches of his Electivire. Charlotte, Noel and Anna also escapes the orphanage, leaving him to chase after them. Sirius then approaches him saying he has the solution to get them back in exchange for his services.

Cain and the player eventually enter the Yureyu Building to save the children again. Sigmund is seen trying to treat Heather again, which Cain yells that Heather can't even speak because of him. Sigmund replies that only her will is gone, not her voice, and asks if fighting him will really solve the problem. Sigmund and Sirius decides to leave after a battle, with Sirius getting the Ruby Ring and Amethyst Pendant.

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

Sigmund appears again to reclaim the children in the Belrose Mansion. After a battle, Sigmund and Sirius kidnaps a part of the group back to the Meteor Base. The player and Saphira (or Laura depending on your choices) raid the meteor base to get them back. When Sirius reports that Lin is coming to check on the PULSE, Sigmund says the name sounded familiar, which Sirius replies that's because Lin is the true leader of Team Meteor. Saphira tries to fight Sigmund but gets teleported, along with the player.

The player later comes back to the Tanzan Meteor Base only to find ZEL being teleported around by Abra with Sigmund watching. Sigmund suggest to simply terminate the project, which Zero and Eve agrees. Lumi however is against it, but Eve says Lin is coming soon and this would be unacceptable to present, and would stop anymore teleportation accidents from happening further. ZEL then decide to battle the player to terminate Abra. After Abra is terminated, Lin arrives and asks who Sigmund is. Sigmund introduces himself and asks if they met before, when Lin replies its would be impossible. After Lin leaves to deal with noise, the player is let go by Sirius. Sigmund is seen pondering over why Lin's name sound familiar.

Sigmund is seen again at Calcenon City talking to Saphira. Saphira threatens him that if it wasn't for the barrier, she would have killed him. Sigmund responds that she still finds comfort from threats to authority. Saphira tells that he isn't the authority anymore, Sigmund reminds her that he still has legal guardianship over Charlotte. Saphira replies that she's the guardian now and he's the threat. Saphira also says he's taking orders from Team Meteor now, and asks how low can a man sink. Sigmund explains he doesn't care for their goals but he wants to confirm something. Saphira is sick of the conversation and is done with him.

Yureyu Building battle speech
Pre-battle speech

[Dr. Sigmund]: You've returned.

[Dr. Sigmund]: I confess it was fortunate that Sirius of this "Team Meteor" came to me with the proposal that he did.

[Dr. Sigmund]: He had the means to capture my fugitives, and for payment he needed only to remove this girl a single object-- a Ruby Ring.

[Dr. Sigmund]: At his behest, I hold her captive here for questioning later.

[Dr. Sigmund]: Though I doubt that will be fruitful, given that she has become withdrawn to the point of silence...

[Cain]: And who's fault do you think that is? After what you did to her, she may not even be able to speak at all!

[Dr. Sigmund]: Loss of speech is not among the effects of Electro-convulsive therapy.

[Dr. Sigmund]: She hasn't lost her ability to speak. Only her will.

[Dr. Sigmund]: Yet you present with such animosity. Do you really intend to fight me to reclaim her?

[Dr. Sigmund]: Or perhaps you'll accept a different solution.

[Dr. Sigmund]: Are you sure fighting is what you wish to do? {Yes/No}

Answered Yes

[Dr. Sigmund]: So be it.

Answered No (No battle)

[Dr. Sigmund]: Just as well. Then I won't stop you from proceeding onwards.

[Dr. Sigmund]: I may have invested myself in this "Team Meteor", but I have no regard for their malevolent actions.

[Dr. Sigmund]: Yet, I do find myself bound to their service for a different reason entirely-- strictly a matter of my personal curiosity.

[Dr. Sigmund]: There's a name I hear thrown among their officers. It's a name I used to know, but it cannot possibly be...

[Dr. Sigmund]: Ahem. Pardon, I was speaking too much.

[Dr. Sigmund]: This time, only, I will turn away.

Pre-battle speech (Rematch)

[Dr. Sigmund]: You've returned.

[Dr. Sigmund]: I confess it was fortunate that Sirius of this "Team Meteor" came to me with the proposal that he did.

[Dr. Sigmund]: He had the means to capture my fugitives, and for payment he needed only to remove this girl a single object-- a Ruby Ring.

[Dr. Sigmund]: At his behest, I hold her captive here for questioning later.

[Cain]: And who's fault do you think that is? After what you did to her, she may not even be able to speak at all!

[Dr. Sigmund]: Loss of speech is not among the effects of Electro-convulsive therapy.

[Dr. Sigmund]: She hasn't lost her ability to speak. Only her will.

[Dr. Sigmund]: And so you're here again. So be it.

Post-battle speech

[Dr. Sigmund]: Just as well. I'm sure we'll settle this shortly.

Belrose Mansion battle speech
Pre-battle speech

[Dr. Sigmund]: We meet again.

[Dr. Sigmund]: I have no intention of extending to you the same mercy as when last we met.

[Dr. Sigmund]: I am here to reclaim what you have stolen from me.

[Dr. Sigmund]: Those children belong at the Orphanage.

[Dr. Sigmund]: They are my property.

[Dr. Sigmund]: Orderlies, search the upper floor.

[Dr. Sigmund]: I'll eliminate this annoyance.

Post-battle speech

{Sirius enters through the door}

[Sirius]: Blast that feral woman!

[Dr. Sigmund]: Where are your men?

[Sirius]: Gone.

[Sirius]: Dead for all I know.

[Sirius]: That accursed woman with the Dragonite came and shot us down as we were crossing the lake.

[Sirius]: I clipped her wings in return though, and hauled myself out of the water.

[Sirius]: Now I am NOT leaving here empty-handed.

[Sirius]: Where are the children?

[Dr. Sigmund]: This vexatious brat is protecting them.

[Sirius]: Is that so?

[Sirius]: Well, Doctor, I cannot help but notice, there are now two of us, and only one brat.

[Sirius]: If we split up, their actions will only tell us where they're hiding.

[Sirius]: And they can't stop both of us at once.

[Sirius]: I'll go this way, Doctor.

[Sirius]: And you go through the door over there.

[Sirius]: So, <player>? Who will you stop?

[Sirius]: The Doctor, or myself?

Trivia

  • Dr. Sigmund Connal shares his first name with Sigmund Freud, a well-known neurologist.
  • His method of treatment is electro-convulsive therapy via means of his Electivire, the patients of whom include Laura, Heather and Saphira (and presumably Charlotte, Anna and Noel).
  • In one path, knowing he cannot win a battle against Laura, he orders his Electivire to use Thunder Wave on her instead of on her Pokémon. In another path, he get hit with Hyper Beam by Saphira's Dragonite.
  • During the online league, Sigmund would psychoanalyze his challengers in the middle of a match just to get under their skin. This isn't seen much in the game due to a silent protagonist and game mechanics. [1]
