Kiyoko took notice of the other illusionary Pokemon, though she was quickly returned to a ball. He now saw that a battle was about to begin. Confused, Kiyoko decided to ask the one person he actually trusted. He reached up and tugged at the end of Valroie's skirt, hoping to get her full attention. "Why are you fighting that guy? I thought you liked him...!"
Ty responded to the glare with... A sigh. "No, no no no... I'm the new groomer here... I do it because it makes Pokemon happy and it also makes them look and feel beautiful..." Averting his gaze from the glaring girl, he instead reached his hand down toward the Absol, allowing it to smell his had. Distracted by this gesture, his voice sounded more quiet as he continued, "I just really like Pokemon..." The Cyndaquil, quivering now at the ferocity of this girl, climbed from the table to the top of his trainer's head.
