After the 'threatening' situation ended, Ty continued to groom the Absol. The girl spoke up with a question, so he looked up. "Huh? Oh... I don't battle, or at least I never have. But Hono and I get plenty of exercise." He continued his grooming with the brush for a few moments longer before he finished, emptying the hair from his brush before putting it away. He gave the Absol a few pets before saying, "There, now go show your trainer how you look." After this, he returned his attention to the girl, continuing, "I used to groom Pokemon back in Goldenrod, Johto... I actually won an award somewhat recently for Hono being groomed so well, and we weren't even in the event!"
