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?
Gary entered Jirachi’s Casino, looking around in awe at the sheer size of the building. He carefully glanced around at the guard Pokemon that were positioned at certain areas, but he made sure no eye contact was made. It seemed like this would be a daunting task after all. An Aipom sat perched on Gary’s shoulder, his mischievous grin beamed as he took in his surroundings.

The reason why Gary was here was because he had heard several reports about Pokemon that had gone missing as well as a large quantity of rare items and people’s coins. Surely there was some shady business afoot, and Gary had conspired with a few of his colleagues that something needed to be done about this. Their group had decided that it was best to split up for now and investigate separately so they would not attract attention, and then when they were ready they could pool their information together. With their plans set in place, Gary had designated himself in charge of investigating the main floor of the casino.

Looking around the lobby, Gary spotted a rather large fountain with a sature of Jirachi in the middle of it. Above it contained a star-shaped window in the ceiling above. Behind the statue, Gary noticed a security camera, which he made sure he didn’t stare directly at. “Hey Scurvy,” he whispered to his Aipom, “Why don’t you sneak on up to that light and check it out? That could be our way in. Just make sure you avoid being in the line of the camera. Otherwise, forget it and come back to me.” Scurvy grinned and nodded, letting out an “Ai ai!” Gary smirked and shushed his Pokemon. Once Scurvy was done, he had planned on venturing STRAIGHT AHEAD to check out the rest of the lobby.
