My old associates need me... We will not repeat the failure of three years ago! Team Rocket will be born again, and I will rule the world!

Having a kid stand in front of me like this... Such a thing should never happen. But for some reason, it also makes me feel nostalgic. If you insist on disrupting my plans, I will make you feel a world of pain!
