Oh, hello there. What brings you here?
Hm? What's wrong? You seem rather surprised
No need to explain why. Everyone is surprised, seeing me fiddle around with a small electric train set. But why? I am a child, and children play with these things like I was told, correct? So what makes me any different than them?
Ah, you are quite naive. Despite my age, I am, indeed, a child. A very young one
Why does no one believe me
Please, come closer. Come join me in here. I have much to tell you
I adore this place. My place. For my toys and my games. Pretty checkerboard walls. The blue floor with cloud drawings on them
Isn't it wonderful? I feel like I am in my own personal home, not just a toy room
But it is only natural that I feel this way. I was raised right here the majority of my life, being kept from the outside world by my father, Ghetsis. He never took me outside to play, I was confined here
But no need to worry. I loved this place, and still do. Besides, I don't need people. I don't need to see the outside world. So much violence and abuse
I saw what they did. My friends
People hurt them. Father showed me. The Pokémon. They were hurt
By the foolish humans. The thought of my friends being abused
I cried a lot. I wanted them to be away from the foolish humans
You have Pokémon, don't you? Do you hurt them? Do you use them? Are they merely tools to you?
I see. So you are a caring trainer, are you not?
Don't ever hurt them. They are more than just your Pokémon
They were my only friends. Father never talked to me. I was never hugged by him, nor did he ever once tell me he loved me. In truth, I never really even made true eye contact with him; the most eye contact I'd ever had with him was the disapproving scowl he delivered me whenever I affectionately smiled at him. He never taught me how to do anything like play sports, ride a bike, or color in a coloring book. He n-never even gave me a BED to sleep in
And I still remember, the only true reason for my existance was for his plans; he USED me, and he planned to use my Pokémon friends too, lied to me, then left me all alone
He even called me a "'FREAK' with no human heart", he said that I was "warped" and "stupid"... But, I f-forgive him; he let me keep this room to stay in, and Pokémon to play with
YES. Precious creatures that I play with right here in this room. Yes
We would always run on that halfpipe over there
They LOVE scratching on it for some reason
What FUN it is! And look up there, at my toy airplane
? Oh, I'm sorry. I was a little caught up in that plane, wasn't I? But I just love the way it spins around
Oh! Not again
I'm going to stop looking now. I promise. Here, come see this. My basketball
It even has my name on it! I play with this all the time; I was using it before you came, actually. And my basketball hoop
Don't ask why a piece of my train set is in it. Even I forgot what I did that day. Oh, look over there! My skateboard
My lovely skateboard, I need to play with this more, don't you think? Oh, and my darts. And my pictures. And my new toys that I got last week. Andandandandandand-
What seems to be the problem? What causes you to give me that unsettled look in your eyes? You aren't
AFRAID of me are you? Oh nonsense, of course you're not. I mean, I'm just a child with a room full of toys, right?
Don't be ridiculous. I am a child. Not a grown man like you and others claim. Just an innocent child who loves his friends
And this room. Wait, where are you going? What? Leaving? No, no, you've got the wrong idea here
Yes, I did show you everything in my room, but we haven't played together yet. You found me, you talked to me and listened to my story, so you are my friend, my playmate now, just like my Pokémon. They are here with me, and we are all so lonely.
Stay in my lovely room with me.
Play with me.
PLAY NOW AND FOREVER, NEW FRIEND.
