"I can't tell you where he's headed," said Mike. "What I CAN tell you
is that he's my boss, Ralph Harrison. This is my car, which he technically
stole from me. He was involved in a hi-jacking yesterday, and I need to
find him so he can defend himself. I have no idea why he shot you, but I
promise that he's completely innocent. I should know - I've worked with him
for over two years."
Mike looked closer at the sight through the window. He needed to find
Mr Harrison quickly, and this person - or whatever he was - looked like he
could take care of any job with ease. Persuading him to do so was another

he'll go. Make a choice now so I can at least say I tried.

though. Doppler has been fighting against the fact that Pokémon blindly
obey any trainer, and Mike is almost obsessed with taking care of Mr
Harrison - showing a Pokémonesque loyalty to his boss.
