Lavender caught a Purrloin, level 11, Female! It's ability is Unburden.
As the case with Ellsworth's Pidgey, Lavander's Purrloin should probably get healed up before pressing on through the small town. Maybe Rich will lend a hand?
@PkmnRangerJ: Good post! I really like how you describe the whole thing with being in Team Rocket through Vincent's eyes. I like that.
