May: It hasn't happened yet. It's at three. Not that I'd worry much; I'm up against some kid who seems to think he's Ash Ketchum and has only mediocre or unevolved Pokémon. Pretty high-leveled, so there was room for doubt, but then I saw him train.
Chaletwo: I really don't know. It hasn't been going too badly for Mark so far, but that's because we knew the locations of all these four beforehand, and I wouldn't know how the others are doing. There aren't many left, but there could be reason they've eluded us so far.
May: Other than what? I mean, not since Torchic. I don't think I need any more.
Alan: We've picked up his trail. Been asking some wild Pokémon if they've seen him, and we think we're on the right track, at least.
Overenthusiastic Pichu kid: Of course! We can beat anyone!
Mark's parents don't technically know he's in the League. Molzapart's memory-messing makes them mentally explain his absence from their house with, 'Oh, he's out on his Pokémon journey,' but not think about it hard enough to realize things like, 'Oh, he's in the League right now; we can see him on TV!'
Oh yes, so he did. Okay then, let's see what Flygon thinks - Flygon, how did you feel about being told to battle against a powerful legendary without properly knowing what it was all about, and has May explained everything to you yet?
May: Well, Qwilfish has some things going for it. I mean, it's no powerhouse, but neither is Butterfree or Raichu. I just need my Pokémon to be usable. Something like Farfetch'd can't do much of anything, but you can work with Qwilfish. I like to think I can train mediocre Pokémon well enough to make good use of them.
What do you think Mitch knows about being in a story or what will happen in the future? The characters are not omniscient. This thread is for asking them questions in character, in-world. If you just want to know if Mitch will ever appear again (he will), you should be asking me, in the Ask the Author thread.
