But officer, I use electrodes for HM slaves! How am I supposed to see in this cave without flash?
Your rival tells me that you're a cheater, and filed a complaint with the department. How is it that you have all three starters from the professor and your rival didn't get a starter Pokemon at all? The rules say one per trainer. I have reviewed the security tapes from the camera outside the laboratory... someone who looks like you showed up 3 times with a different hat on each time and left with a new pokemon!
