The amount of force required to break through them is probably beyond the capabilities of one Pokemon, or even a team of six. Since everyone in the daylight hours is posing as a trainer in search of a good time and quick riches, however, the doors will open for you... for now.

Once inside, entrants are greeted by a pair of guards on either side of the entryway - an Aegislash on the left, and a Metagross on the right. They wear little guard hats atop their heads with a Jirachi on them to indicate their positions. The Metagross in particular regards everyone with suspicion, but merely keeps an eye on the crowd.

Behind Aegislash are some more practical features of the lobby, such as a check-in counter/help desk, restrooms and a small souvenir shop. There is also an ELEVATOR near the restrooms. Behind Metagross are some plush couches for patrons to sit and relax, as well as the STAIRWAYS leading UPSTAIRS and DOWNSTAIRS. Two more guard Pokemon – an Arcanine sitting calmly by the help desk, and a Machamp in a Jirachi's Casino leather jacket (with four arm holes, of course) wandering about – make four in total.

In the center of the lobby is a massive fountain, lit by natural light from a star-shaped window above. The fountain depicts Jirachi, water spewing forth from his third eye, as statues of various Pokemon swim and play happily in the pool of water below. Behind this statue, one can continue STRAIGHT AHEAD to explore the rest of this floor. If the mood strikes you, of course, you could always turn around and go back OUTSIDE.

There are seven visible security cameras around the room – two point at the front door, one points at the check-out counter, one points at the fountain's back side, one points at the stairwell and one points at the entrance to the elevator.

Where will you explore first?
The Casino.

Heather had been reasonably wary of coming here, in fact, this would be her first time. She had wanted to buy an Eevee for herself, a Jolteon would be a fine teammate, but the fact that back in the day, this was the one way to really get coins and that the luck reeked of impurities understandably turned her off from ever utilizing the place. But when she was notified that her (relatively) humble coin balance of about 5000 was gone without a trace, she did the research, and all the trails led here, and thus, many Trainers were here to plan the break in of a lifetime. Heather wasn't here for Pokémon, really, though rumor had it many planned to claim one or more. Heather was here more to participate in the coming exposé, though perhaps some luxuriant supplies would be useful enough to her and her team. Perhaps some of those nice-looking Electric or Cyber Balls would do. But enough about that.

Heather strode through the doors seemingly alone, but a Misdreavus soon faded into view beside her. The Screech Pokémon couldn't do much in combat, not that Heather knew this, but if there was something he could do, it was observe, detect, and report, all while going at least mostly undetected. He was practically a perfect recon partner, but alas, he had to remain visible as the pair walked in, as the Aegislash and Metagross at the doors would surely detect him and raise an alarm, at least, so Magus said. Either way, where would any prize items be? Likely on display for all to see, perhaps on this floor. Heather decided to go straight on through. She recognized a man with an unfamiliar Honchkrow-hadn't he helped take on Stewie? Heather decided to steer clear-if he was here to help scout the heist, he had his own turf to keep well in hand, if not, best not arouse his suspicions.

"Alright, Magus. We should be off camera by this point, find a place to hide and do your part, I'll see what else I can find that needs attention." she whispered to the Ghost Type, who wordlessly nodded and hovered away to do his business, melting away into the spiritual plane on his first opportunity, now concealed to most ordinary eyes.
