This is the main entrance to the Casino – as such, it is substantially guarded and monitored. 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?
Well, this was embarrassing.

Michael didn’t know where he was. The last thing he could remember was getting wildly drunk with his squad the night before for his birthday, and then waking up just now. The entire night was a blur to him, memories drowned out by the copious river of alcohol that he’d flooded his body with. His head pounded and ached as if he'd been slammed on the head with a hammer. And what was that awful taste in his mouth? It reminded him of those Ice lollies he’d been… “gifted” in the past…
If this was how it really felt to be 22 then he’d been sorely misinformed.

He stood up to assess the situation he was in – and almost fell back to the ground when he saw where he was. He seemed to be on the roof of a building. Whatever building it was he had no idea, but somehow, he’d made his way up there last night and passed out. He looked around to see what he’d been left with. There wasn’t much, just a mattress and… a life-size cutout of Khloé Kardashian? Now he was really confused. He kept looking around the rooftop, trying to find a way to get to the ground that didn’t involve taking a wild leap of faith – not that he wouldn’t try it. I mean, he had a mattress, and he’d played Assassin’s Creed at least 20 times. He had a feeling he could probably make it. But that would be a last resort. That was it though. Michael panicked. He didn’t have his backpack with him, nor did he have his belt where he held his pokeballs. He was stuck up here, alone and with no way to contact anyone other than shouting from the rooftops – which wouldn’t look good at all considering.
A low yawn caught Michael by surprise. Was someone else up here with him? He made his way to the source of the growling to find his Slowpoke lying nearby, staring out into nothing.
"Slooooooooooooooooooow." The Slowpoke yawned. Michael chuckled. What else did he expect? Perry's a Slowpoke, he doesn't do much.
“Well Perry, looks like it’s just you and me. I think we better try to get gone before someone catches us.” He said, crouching down to pick his Pokémon up and cradling him in his arms like one would hold a baby. He took his first few steps carefully, lest he fall through the roof, seeking out a way down from wherever the hell he was.
