Elsewhere Team Rocket steals a ham from Nurse Joy's grocery bag, onlt to have it stolen by something else. Brock comes up with a plan to lure out the thieves. Later that night, the thieves turn out to be the Dark Pokémon, Houndour. A Houndour with a scar on its right eye appears on a ledge. This particular Houndour is the leader of the pack. Why would Houndour want to steal food?
