|“||Back then, I only sought to be more powerful. I didn't need any other reason. As a result, I attained this status. But now, I've taken to questioning my motive for gaining power. I wonder what I am fighting for. I wonder if I am putting my Pokémon under cruel stress… That's why I urge you to look into yourself. Ask yourself why do you want to become stronger before you take that path.||„|
