Looker approaches Silver. From Episode 5 of Pokémon Generations.

Everybody got daddy issues: yo daddy love you too much, your daddy doesn’t seem to give a single fuck,
or something wack, like yo daddy buys you in-n-out burgers cause he don’t care about
the insanely long drive thru line at 10PM, he just wants to make your American ass fat. ‘Nice and chubby,’ he says.

Or he just wants to leave your ass at 8 or 9 years young cause, “I want to be the very best, that no one ever was.
And I can’t do that if I’m changing your diapers, Silver. That’s your job now.” – Giovanni
See, even your daddy has daddy issues.

Looker, International Pokemon detective, gets it. He might have some young poopers at home, but he’s out and about doing his own duty.

And Silver used to not get it, “Why are you leaving me? You’re supposed to be strong and take care of my crying ass!”

And Giovanni essentially says this with silence, “I want you to be stronger than me. You don’t need me at this moment.
Same with Team Rocket. Be your own daddy.”

Though Team Rocket isn’t as… dependable. Guys, why the fuck do you think 3 years is enough for a revival?
Has he even made a single contact with you?
He hasn’t even hit up his son. He’s clearly either still training or now dead.
Get your shit together. He’ll hit you up when he’s able to “utilize you at your fullest potential.” Arceus.

Though, I guess teamwork would be better if the leader decided to communicate their goals more.
But on the other hand, he didn’t consider your weak asses a part of his team. If anything, in another 7 Pokemon years, he will come back with an army, unifying the other 5 region’s diabolical teams, like some Nobunaga or Ieyasu shit.

Now that’s some daddy shit.

If you want some more Edo period inspired Pokemon genius, you gotta check out Pokemon Generations’ Episode 6.

Thanks Daddy, so generous~
