Elevator (Patches, TKF, Brave Saix, PikaGod) – A pair of elevators bear the responsibility of ferrying trainers and Pokemon from one floor to the next. Though fairly spacious, the space is rather unremarkable – the walls and ceiling are mirrored if you need to check yourself (before you wreck yourself).

Available floors are BF, P1F, 1F, P2F, 2F, P3F, 3F and ROOF. There are also buttons for Open Door, Close Door and an EMERGENCY STOP button.

Jayson, who attempts to order Odysseus to disrupt the surveillance camera, is... well, caught on the surveillance camera the moment the disruptions become apparent. He's cut off by the sudden appearance of a rather stern-looking Alakazam in a Jirachi's Casino hat, who teleports in out of seemingly nowhere. Soon, Jayson experiences the feeling of his own body being made ethereal – being removed from this very plane of existence – only to reappear back in the lobby with his Magnemite. The guards have their eye on Jayson and Odysseus. Even so, the risk is not completely without reward – Lift 1 surveillance camera is Out of Order. Also, the preliminary trace reveals to Magnemite that the surveillance system is being controlled on a floor beneath the lobby. Odysseus, though visibly shaken, is stronger for the experience. Odysseus gains 1 level.

Sypher doesn't fare much better in the other lift – though his attempt at using the “EMERGENCY STOP” button does, indeed, stop the elevator between floors, it also encourages a ghostly Gengar Guard (a GenGuard?) to float through the walls and investigate the lift, grinning wide as he smashes the “2F” button hard in response to the supposed “emergency”. Though Jill is able to fly through a rather promising looking vent between 2F and P3F, her trainer plummets in the elevator with the cackling guard – though only a short distance, the jostling motion is thoroughly disorienting – though not nearly as bad as being unceremoniously thrown out of the elevator back into the lobby by an insane Gengar. The guards have their eye on Sypher. She will likely fly back some time later to give a full report to Sypher – if she can find him.

Melody, who is third to the elevator, tries to close the door as soon as she enters the space – only to find that the button is jammed. A throng of tourists enter the elevator – but given the presence of the guards, being surrounded by the din of other people works as a sort of camouflage. The throng is followed by the eager Patches, who presses every single button in the elevator... including the Emergency Stop. Both the Alakazam and the Gengar end up in the lift with Patches and Melody, rolling their eyes. Seems like the elevator attracts all the troublemakers... They seem to debate unceremoniously throwing Patches out, but decide to simply keep their eyes on her. She may serve as a temporary distraction... Though the lift she has boarded (Lift 2) still has an operating surveillance camera.

Jayson and Sypher may attempt to board the elevator again, or may try their luck elsewhere.
Jayson shivered, the lingering psychic energy from the Alakazam was disturbing. The guards were certainly powerful and well trained, nothing seemed to escape their sight. He was slightly peeved that they were caught so quickly, it seemed that this mission would be much harder than he initially expected. Odysseus had proven himself a capable hacker however and was able to disable the lifts camera and also find the general location of the surveillance room, which seemed to be down below. Jayson looked around and saw that another trainer had been kicked out of the elevator. He was certain that he saw the trainer enter the lifts with a Noibat, which was now nowhere to be seen. The only issue was that now the guards were watching them, it would be harder for them to go about their business now. Jayson looked around and spotted the Stairs, he could likely go down there and search for the surveillance room.

Jayson recalled Odysseus for now, he might be under less suspicion if he didn't have his Pokemon out with him. He made his way towards the stairs, once down there he could scope the place out and try to locate the surveillance room, but they couldn't afford to run into anymore guards. Hopefully someone or something could create a distraction for them. Even though going so hard for the surveillance system was risky, it was there best bet for finding the best places to hit during the heist. Hopefully the more Odysseus got used to the system the better he would get at controlling it.
