Entering requires passing through two thick steel double doors, the first of which bears scars of previous attempts by law enforcement groups at breaking and entering. 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?
Melody had felt both a rush of excitement and disgust as she walked into the lobby. The excitement was from feeling almost like she was a spy, finally her life had turned into a heist movie, a heist movie that she would probably finance to be made. Of course she would play herself, and Danny Devito would play the Detective Pikachu sidekick responsible for doing the behind the scenes sleuthing. The disgust was from what the Casino had turned into, as well as those responsible for it.

Melody was quick to volunteer to go undercover, lately it sorta felt like she was turning more and more into feeling like she was a hero of sorts. Not an idiot, she decided to disguise herself so she wouldn't be recognised as super pop star Melody Starr, obviously. Donning a shoulder length brown wig, a stunning silver gown, and a good enough contouring job that her face looked quite different, Melody felt that there was no way anyone would know who she was.

The lobby was huge, undoubtedly she wasn't the only undercover trainer who was impressed by it, but Melody didn't have the time to be impressed. She needed to get to work. Cleverly hidden in her hair was her Spinarak, Silk, who hopefully would be able to get some surveillance work done. She figured that the wall and ceiling climbing spider might be able to go about relatively undetected.

Melody slowly sauntered on over to the elevator, making it seem like she was interested in everything that she passed. She was quick to step into it, and closed the door as soon as she could. Melody didn't want anyone else in there, especially considering that she was about to confirm the plan with Silk.

"Okay Silk," she said, making herself seem like she was singing under her breath, "Once we get to wherever this elevator is going to be taking us, I need to find us a place where you can covertly get out of my do, and then we can get to work."
