Not really, only because its Kojiro. I don't think he thinks about the way he says things to worry about what it sounds like. Lol.Do anyone else weirded out by how Kojiro said that he's not deserving Hidoide because he's not good as Dohidoide? He talks like Hidoide is his girlfriend or something.
He's also done it for Musashi and Nyasu as well. Usually if he thinks a friend would be happier somewhere else, he'll(or at least try to) let them go.Also, because Kojiro would speak that way about any of his Pokemon if he believed another Pokemon or trainer would make them happier.
