It seems something dramatic happened to him before you even got your first Pokemon. Does anybody know what happened to him.
He was attacked by Team Plasma as a child. His sister's Purloin was stolen. This can be determined by Hugh's hatred of Team Plasma as well as the fact that he actually says it later in the game.
