"You don't need to catch any Pokemon if you don't want to. I'm only going after Pokemon because I'm not physically strong enough to fight Gaia myself. And my only heavy hitters in my party is Slug made of lava and a baby deer that has a flower growing out of its head. So I need tougher pokemon. But you seem very strong yourself. Everyone has their own pros and cons." Rick finished up his soup and got up as well, Carol following in suit. Delibird still seemed to be holding onto Eris's shoulder, liking the girl very much.
"And I'm not just interested in catching Pokemon. We'll learn more about Team Gaia by inspecting what they can do. Collapsing an entire tunnel is not an easy feat."
