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?

"Choux, what is in your mouth? Choux! Choux no don't eat the wrapper!" Athena chased after her Snubbull, who was happily scarfing down some Rare Candy he had found in her bag. The trainer scooped her Pokemon up and pulled out two pieces of blue plastic from his mouth, sticking her tongue out in disgust at the slobber covered wrappers.

Choux grew to level 2! Choux grew to level 3!

"Bad Snubbull." The girl scolded, holding her Pokemon up to her face and frowning. Choux snuffled nonchalantly. "Be a good boy today, ok? You gotta help me out. Use that good nose of yours!" She tapped Choux's wet black nose and smiled.

"Snubbull." Choux huffed.

With the Fairy Pokemon in her arms, Athena entered through the large double doors of the casino. She smiled at the guards on her way in, but gripped her Snubbull a bit tighter as her heart rate increased. All she had to do was act like an average guest, take a good look around, and hopefully find something helpful to bring back to the group that had gathered the night before. She approached the fountain in the lobby, gasping quietly as she admired the architecture. Sure, she was here on a very important mission, but she couldn't resist. She pulled her phone out, turned, and snapped a selfie with Choux in her arms. She took a look back at the picture and noticed Choux wasn't even looking at the camera. She sighed, but was wary of the guards and decided not to take another picture. Athena spotted a few familiar faces in the lobby, a boy with an Aipom on his shoulder, a girl with a Pikachu, and another boy with a Mimikyu trailing behind him. She didn't let her gaze linger too long, but was glad the others had gotten there safe. Everything was going smoothly. She gave her Snubbull a soft pat on the head, and began to ascend the stairs.
