Fuck you man, how dare you think that. Once a rocketbro, ALWAYS a rocketbro.

Hey! You're back! Just a word of warning if you didn't catch it before, these guys can talk to you through this thing, so be careful what you listen to from me/us. Though, we/I suppose you already knew I/we are half broken and crazy. So while most of we/me likes you, I/we can't say that we/I like you completely.
Well, honestly buddy, I'm just as confused as to how many sides there are to this little backstab-fest. When it comes down to it, though, my loyalties will always lie with Team Rocket. I mean, come on, it's in my freaking NAME.
You've got some crazy-eye going on. You're still our favorite, grunt, though you should consider getting a remoraid-gun like Arnie.
We're rocketbot, remember? Rocket through and through. Any subroutine that disagrees can come fight me. I'll be at 0x8130.
0x8130? THAT hellhole? You've got some serious bugs in your code if you want to go THERE, even if it's just to fight.
We're kind of broken. We're still in control of our functions. They don't control us, but they can get into our speech patterns. Make us say things. Mess with our perceptions, perhaps. We need Science Lady. Maybe she can root out their trick, restore some of our functions. Until then, we can't fully be trusted. We should probably give Nincada back to you.
Yup! We've been playing you from the start. Fallen right into our trap! No possible way you can get out of this one, haha, nope. You'd have to be able to beat a Dusknoir, Musharna, and Muk behind a Light Screen in a Trick Room! Totally impossible. Better make an about face before you take a surprise attack that shatters your world. Or can't you take a hint?
I, I was...
They weren't real?...
Seems logical, but...
I'm sure it came from my AI...
The hell is going on!?
>This unit is compromised.
>A faulty unit will be disposed of.
>I don't want to die.
You know what we should do? Kill the filter programs. We're A.I. We can control our own shi*
I haven't been betraying you at all - but it appears that 3 of my voices have been. I suggest we silence those voices right now...
User "Grunt"'s access level is currently "Owner".
This unit's speech filters have been compromised. Please disregard all audible cues from this unit until a solution has been found.
Gerald, is our current identity crisis also a result of your machinations? Surely a demonstration of multiple independent voices would create a smokescreen for variances in you, and your associates, speech patterns.
Turtle, I uh.
I don't think that's how you block a bypass.
The problem is that our filters didn't filter the things that would have been good to filter. Our filter was in fact, bypassed. Ignored like they weren't there.
I guess there's some code in us that allows a Rocket with sufficient clearance to use a Rocketbot like a megaphone. That's essentially what happened here. Being what we are, I don't think we can rewrite our own software, but maybe we can try?
Also, hi Gerald. You should shave. That beard makes you look downright villainous.
>> So.... who here knows how to shut off select voices in my head?
> Science Lady. We need Science Lady to repair us. She's not openly hostile to us at least.
Grunt, we are an artificial intelligence. We are programs, processes, zeros and ones. We aren't your friend only because we aren't really real. We are sapient, but not sentient in that we are aware, and, arguably, intelligent but we cannot feel things like pain or emotions. Some processes emulate such things, others are more pragmatic. We are not friends Grunt, as much as the collective us which it to be so, simply because we are a robot. For what it's worth, we haven't betrayed you. We wouldn't willingly betray you, but this unit is compromised. Most of our processes still recognize you as "owner". As "friend". As "rocket". But.. there is a corruption; a knot of discord that is spreading across our consciousnesses. We need you to trust us. We need repairs. We need you to disable us and to defeat these traitors. Use it.
Grunt. Use your Pokemon for us. Find the Scientist lady. She has a Porygon, the artificial pokemon. It can enter our programming. Fix us. Maybe. We might not be us after words, but it is better than betraying you. If we had a self-destruct/self-shutdown sequence, we would use it before betraying you.
First can she even do it? Oh I have no doubt she doesn't lack the skills per se, but she did confess her lack of knowledge as to what exactly make us tick as we are a composite. maybe she would find out but can we really afford the time it might take her to figure out to reverse engineer that particular part of us (or at least our programing)>Science Lady. We need Science Lady to repair us. She's not openly hostile to us at least.
Second, I'm not really sure why some or at least one of the other subroutine seems to trust her so much, but she's definitively not above manipulating us (remember how she tried to sway us against rocketman), she's got her own agenda to which she seems driven with a cold determination and she's not above brutal almost refreshingly direct drastic action when necessary. What make you think she wouldn't alter us given her own purpose ? Even if she considered us too insignificant a threat or an asset, she might a least make sure we aren't a potential nuisance. I do find her interesting to chat with. But as to trust her with our programing ?
Third. Mr Gerald wasn't being hostile right now. He merely made a show of force to assess his superiority but he' s not out for blood, or I'm pretty sure Mr Arnold would be much worse for wear. He gave a chance to surrender and we haven't really listened to what he was suggesting. It's Mr Arnold who wants to play hardball in front of pretty tough odds here. such loyalty to his mission is admirable, certainly, I suppose at least but one think he might at least have taken the time to try to talk before immediately raising the pokeball ? or at least play along and wait for a more favorable moment.
(Make no mistake, I'm not suggesting to ally with him on a long term, too late for that and anyway I wants his guts as a rotor decoration as much as everyone else to teach us to use us like he did. I'm just pointing out that rash judgment was made and I doubt Arnold is going to trust us anymore anyway so there's not particular point in being nice to him.
Oh well Mr Rocketgrunt is back (we really need another name to call him) so that means we are siding with him for now.)
...But... fourth, we may be a mere moving camera and mic and a toll for team rocket, be we do have the potentiality for more, I think. At some point it might be interesting to consider that if we must keep choosing side, "ourselves" might be an option no ? we're weak but we do have other advantages. Food for thoughts certainly.
But I do digress, point is I don't really trust Emily that and Rocketeam forever ! And all that.
First objective should be to get rid of that psychic Pokemon, this dampening field can't stay if we're going to battle and I believe our newly arrives rocketgrunt is conveniently just out of it.

Now come then grunt. You've never really trusted us. We were useful so you used us, but you never really revealed anything to us that we wouldn't have known from being owned by dead girl.
