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?
It seemed that the case of the missing valuables in Jirachi's Casino was enough to bring a variety of people and Pokemon from all over. Each came for their own reasons, some more unsavory then others, and the pair of Pokemon approaching the building was no exception.
On the left was a rather excited looking Magneton, the magnet Pokemon zooming around his teammate in anticipation. The second was a stern looking Nuzleaf, who seemed to be ignoring the Magneton's actions.
The two seemed like polar opposites, and any outsiders might have questioned why they were together in the first place. But the truth was, the two were only paired up out of necessity. The two of them had awoken only hours early, only to find their trainer, along with the rest of their teammates, were completely missing!
The last they had remembered, the two had been battling against some powerful Pokemon. The Nuzleaf, pitted against a Mega Sableye and Honedge, while the Magneton recalled a battle against a mighty Electric type Pokemon.
In their search for their trainer, the two had learned the news about Jirachi's Casino, and what was just about to transpire! Eager to join in, the two decided to journey there without a second thought.

"Yay this going to be so exciting! Are you excited? Error is excited!" The Magneton droned as he continued to circle his teammate.

"Error, hush!" Kage scolded the Magneton. "We don't need you bringing any more attention to us."

"Right, Error apologizes." The Magneton replied.
"But wait, Error has a question. How exactly is this helping us find our friends?"

That was right, Kage had nearly forgot. While she had decided to join in the mission without a second thought, Error hadn't been nearly as eager. Only after convincing the Magneton that it would help find their trainer, had Error decided to join the Nuzleaf.

"Right...well..I'm sure we're going to find something we can pawn off, right? With those funds, we can just hire someone to find our friends." Kage explained.

"Oh! You're a genius! Good thinking!" Error replied, prompting a small grin from Kage. Though the Nuzleaf was planning on pawning off any thing she could find and recover, she had no intention of using the money for anything but her research.
Depending on what she found, she could surely amass enough to develop a memory recovery machine, right? With her dreams set a bit too high, the Nuzleaf guided her teammate to the front of the casino, before turning to him.

"Alright Error, now it's your job to go inside and...check out the new slot machines they have....try and make us some good money, ok?" The Nuzleaf asked, hoping Error would get the message.

"Huh? But I thought we wer-oh right! Error is so dumb!" The Magneton droned.
"Alright, Error will go gambling, you stay here and wait for our trainer." Error added, before making his way inside the building...
The first thing Error noticed as he entered the Casino was the two guards on either side of him. On his left an Aegislash, and on his right a Metagross.

This was no fun. With security guards around, Error knew his job was going to be even harder then he had initially thought. Deciding not to dwell on this, Error turned to his left, where he immediately noticed the souvenir shop.

"Yay! Error loves souvenirs!" The Magneton exclaimed as he flew towards the shop. Just before he reached it, the Magneton stopped, realizing just what he had done. He could already hear Kage in his mind, scolding him for bringing more attention to himself.
Besides, the Magneton was completely broke, and wouldn't be able to buy anything anyway. Making a mental note to inform Kage about the shop, Error reluctantly flew away from it, pondering where he would begin his search.
After much debate, Error began to float towards the upstairs, hoping to leave his thoughts of wonderful souvenirs behind him.
