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?
Seiko continued to scan the crowded lobby nervously. What compelled her to come to such a place? The gambler's scene definitely wasn't her jive, and she had little desire for worldly goods aside from the bare necessities to scrape by--at least, for the time being. If the rumors she'd heard along the Fizzby grapevine pertaining to the infamous Jirachi Casino were indeed true, she do her damnedest to keep herself from getting mixed up in any criminal escapades.

What, then, drew her to the hub of seedy activity on this fair-weathered day? To right a grave wrongdoing. To make right the purging of tens of thousands of Fizzbian coin accounts, the smuggling of rare and exotic Pokemon... yes, as long as there were allies at her back, Seiko would answer the call to mete justice on scammers and crooks. Give them a run for their money!

The Sinnoh native sighed, adjusting the baseball cap-aviator shades-combo she donned for the occasion, a gesture pantomimed by her right-hand Croagunk, Zelos. He grinned in his usual derisive manner before elbowing his trainer in a show of good humor. She frowned.

"Zelos," Seiko began, planting her hands on her hips, her voice just above a whisper. "None of that. We're here on a mission."

The poison frog slouched at his trainer's dismissive comment. The half-sneer that stretched across his jowls was the very picture of malcontent... what a killjoy, it seemed to say. He knew they had a job to do, but that honestly didn't have to cut fun from the equation, did it?

Seiko eyes lingered over the guards stationed about the lobby. The atmosphere was too stifling here. She motioned for her companion to follow, pointing to the staircase leading downstairs. "Hey, this way, Zelos."
