He becomes flustered, “No, am not! Look, do you want to find the pichu or not? They said they were planning on returning him tomorrow morning, but they’re a pretty rough crowd. I wouldn’t want anything bad to happen to the pichu.”

“Oh, just some rattata don’t like pikachu very much; Most of us are good, but I wouldn’t be surprised if some took it out on him in some way. They haven’t done anything yet - I hope. But we should hurry before they do.”
He still could be lying and the only way to get the truth out of him would be to attack him, but if Jet is in danger, you can’t wait much longer. Do you trust the rattata?
