Doppler stared at Larry for a moment, then snorted. "This one can not
be controlled the same way. I am having difficulty sensing a coherent
mind at all."
"WAS THAT AN insult?!"
"No. It was a statement of fact." Doppler picked up Phoo. "And now,
as I believe the saying goes, 'no comment'."
Larry picked up a camera, trying to get a picture. There was a bright
flash, then Doppler and Phoo were gone. Only later, when developing a
roll of hopelessly overexposed film, would Larry realize that his
camera's flash bulb had already burnt out.
Several hundred feet up, far above the Celadon Mall, the cockroach
materialized, riding on a giant Aerodactyl. #You are an interesting
one,# Doppler spoke mentally, #and for that, I offer you a chance to
join my cause. Neither pokemon nor human are you, and yet you have what
it takes for both to treat you as the worst of the other. That 'human',
or so I assume, has apparently bothered you before. I could tell from
your voice. Tell me, would it not be beneficial to you if he were
"Well...no. No, I won't let you talk me into saying I want to kill
#Such was not my intent. I do not wish my min...allies to be what they
are not, and you are no killer. You do not have to be.#
Phoo looked over the side of the Aerodactyl, after holding on through a
brief stall. Far below, the distinctive crater of a Hyper Beam
smouldered not half a meter from Larry.
#I save the dirty work for those capable of it. You would be useful to
me as a model, a demonstration. Work with your pokemon - not as their
master, but side by side. Learn to understand them, and become their
partner. Do not view them as mere property, as slaves to be trained,
traded, and stolen. Such is the fallacy of both Team Rocket and the
Pokemon League, and for their slavery, I would see BOTH organizations
destroyed! Terminating their leaders will be a start, but if you can
stop people from joining either one, it would help. Such is all I ask
of you, for such is all you would be willing to do. Or, have I
underestimated you? Would you be willing to join in my fight? Would
you mount Giovanni's and the Elite Four's heads on sticks, after
severing them yourself, as a warning to those who would take up their

NC-Doppler uppercuts a nameless trainer, causing a Wigglytuff to stick
its head into view for a second. "Wiggly!"
NC-Doppler flexes a hand with needle-like claws, and pops the
"NC-DOPPLER WINS. MERCY."
