As they ascended the flight, they noticed that the surroundings were a little more lavish than the lobby area; no expense had been spared when it came to decorating this area, with intricate gold decorations hanging along the length of the walls and glinting gently in the somewhat softer lighting of the surroundings. Finally, the pair come to the head of the stairs, pushing against two large, wooden doors. They move open with ease, a little creak resonating around the room, and Keith steps inside. He finds himself in an incredibly spacious room - likely situated just above the main room of the Casino itself, and certainly as large as the main floor. Numerous tables sporting different games were spread around the area, but much more interesting were the people - rather, the distinct lack of. The area was barely occupied, and every participant seemed to be dressed up in their absolute best, each sporting fancy apparel and dripping with an air of higher society. Keith is brought to his senses by a deep grunt, turning to his right to see a Machoke with his arms crossed, eyes narrowed and staring at Keith. After a while, the tensed Pokemon simply nods, turning back towards watching the others in the room, and at this point Keith notices others climbing the stairs now behind him, a rather weird group in their own right.

Bill and his Squirtle, Error the Magneton, Hyrem and his Froslass, Athena and her Snubbull all stood in the doorway, frozen in place by the beady eyes of the Machoke. It was clear that the Fighting type was becoming suspicious of such a large gathering of people, so it would likely be best for the group to split up as soon as possible. As those within the group look around to take in more of the surroundings, they realise three corridors leading deeper into the floor - with the door behind them situated at the south side of the room, the corridors each led off in the other three cardinal directions, north, east and west.
Bill saw some very familiar faces on his way through the casino. He was at least happy to see that he wasn't alone in this mission, something that was...well... a different feeling. Normally he'd be by himself with his Pokemon, this was a wonderful change of pace. As he and Silver ventured upstairs, he noticed very quickly that the security in place, a Machoke, was weary of everyone. But thankfully everyone else had noticed this too, as people started to split their different ways. One went to the left, another to the right, and one went to the Machoke itself. That left one hallway for Bill to go through, the north one. As Bill passed by the Machoke, he gave the Pokemon an acknowledging nod.

Silver, picking up the same cue as Bill, pretty much followed the trainer. "Squirt!" it yelled at Bill. Its stubby legs were still something it needed to get used to. Granted, even as a Blastoise, Silver was pretty slow, but this form was a lot easier for it to trip up, and as such it needed to take things a lot slower. Bill waited for his Pokemon before picking it up and putting it on his shoulders.

"Don't worry, maybe we'll win enough rare candies for you to evolve soon, buddy," Bill said. Truth be told, he hoped that he would find some way to evolve Silver soon, his Pokemon aren't exactly battle-ready. His steps started to become relatively louder to him as he started to wander alone in this direction.
