*At the road, Mulberry and Hypno started back to the lab, with Mulberry taking the chair. He glanced over his shoulder at the others, who were just starting to head to the road.* "Hey, don't let Hemlock get to you. He's just not used to working with Pokémon like you."
*Hypno nodded slowly, but didn't say anything due to his concentration being focused on walking.*
"At least Mr. P seems to like you. He should see your projects. We should show him the robot."
*Hypno nodded again and grunted in reply. The robot. Birch continually claims ownership of the robot, despite the fact that Hypno had built it. Originally, he built the robot to aid his work, as it could carry things without dropping them, and hold objects still. The robot moved faster, didn't have tremors, and maneuvered easily through the lab.*
*The robot was built from a radio-controlled car, with additional mechanics built from a child's building toy. The controls were simple, with the complex motions being set on the controller for his right hand to operate. His left hand could do basic motions, such as driving and raising and lowering the arm. It wasn't very polished, but it served Hypno's needs, and he brought it to the lab.*
*Mulberry helped reinforce the robot's frame and fine-tune the electronics for better control responsiveness; something that Hypno couldn't do due to having only one working hand. Then, Birch suggested retrofitting the robot for field work, to which Hypno agreed. The robot could traverse difficult terrain easier and carry things. It was fitted with new tires, a better suspension, and the arm modified to throw PokéBalls.*
*Soon enough, the robot was no longer Hypno's robot; it belonged to Birch. Birch used it for field work, and had either Mulberry or a Trainer volunteer operate it. When not in use, it stayed in storage, no longer able to help Hypno with his work.*
*Hypno let out a snort as he paused along the road to rest. He could build another robot, but that one would be taken, too. He had tried to use the robot for its original intended purpose, but Hemlock admonished him for it, telling him not to "play with it." Every human in the lab conveniently forgot that Hypno had built the robot.*
