Pokémon HQ Lab
The outcome of the Battle Sim has no impact on later events in the game. To learn how to battle better, use different combinations and styles of fighting.
You were inside the Battle Sim. You come out and the trainer overseeing the Battle Sim tells you that you should start raising other Pokémon. If you check your current Pokémon, you only have a Lv.10 Eevee that only knows Tackle, Tail Whip, Bite, and Sand-Attack. It also already starts with some EXP already.
Stroll around the Lab and chat with the scientists, who are always eager to discuss their work. Ride the elevator to the second floor and head for Professor Krane's office. There you find both Lily (your mother) and the Professor. Lily tells you that Jovi, your little sister, hasn't been seen in a while and that she's counting on you to find her.
Before you search for Jovi, Professor Krane tells you to stop by your room and pick up the P★DA he left there for you. Leave Krane's office through the left door and explore the residential wing of Pokémon HQ Lab. Head down to the first floor and locate your room in the northeast corner. Open the chest and claim the P★DA from your desk.
Your P★DA is upgradeable. For now, it has two important uses: E-mail and the Strategy Memo, which is like a Pokédex. Later, functions such as the Shadow Monitor and the Spot Monitor are automatically added. An e-mail automatically arrives from Krane.
Jovi is playing hide-and-seek with Adon, who hopefully knows where she went.
The chest at the foot of your bed holds three Potions.
Adon is upstairs in the room next to the lounge. If you read Krane's e-mail, Adon tells you that he suspects Jovi has gone down the road to Kaminko's House to visit her friend Chobin. Adon marks the location of Kaminko's House on the map so you can drive there on your scooter and pick her up.
As you leave the room, a scientist will want you to watch the ONBS news broadcast on the lounge's TV in the northwest room to find out about the missing S.S. Libra cargo ship. After that, leave Pokémon HQ Lab and walk around the yard. Talk to the people out here. One of them battles you.
This creepy old manor is the home of eccentric inventor Dr. Kaminko and his assistant Chobin. Their scary looking house discourages unwanted visitors, giving the inventor the privacy he needs to work on his secret projects.
When you approach the door to Kaminko's House, Chobin stops you. He mistakes you for a burglar and is determined to battle first and ask questions later. He brings out his Sunkern to battle. Bring out your Eevee, and use Tackle and Bite repeatedly to win.
After you defeat Chobin, he recognizes you, and Jovi comes out of the house. Follow her and Chobin inside.
Before you meet up with Jovi again, Chobin insists on showing you some of Dr. Kaminko's latest inventions. Learn more about them by checking the big TV in the parlor. The inventions are unusual. What's more surprising is that anyone would buy these inventions, but people do. Keep an eye out for the hapless buyers during your travels.
Go through the only unlocked door to find Dr. Kaminko and Jovi. Your sister joins you and agrees to let you take her home. There's nothing else to do at Kaminko's House for now, so chat with everyone, then leave and return to the Pokémon HQ Lab.
After you exit the house, you get an e-mail from Krane.
Now return to the lab.
Pokémon HQ Lab
When you return to Pokémon HQ Lab, Lily is waiting for you outside. Jovi leaves you to finish her hide-and-seek game with Adon while Lily instructs you to find Professor Krane.
Head into the Lab to find Krane. First, go to the west wing's second floor and look for a man in a light blue shirt and a bucket hat. He tells you that he saw Krane downstairs. Return to the first floor and find the Professor in the western room.
The scientists at the Lab have completed a new invention, the Snag Machine. This device allows you to throw a Poké Ball to snag an opponent's Pokémon during battle (normally you can throw Poké Balls only at wild Pokémon). Snagging Pokémon from another trainer is usually unethical, but the Snag Machine is designed to be used only on Shadow Pokémon. Krane believes so strongly in purifying and caring for the Shadow Pokémon that he feels you're justified in rescuing them from their trainers.
No sooner have you equipped the Snag Machine when crisis erupts! A team of mysterious thugs have arrived at the Lab and have kidnapped Krane. Leave the Lab and head outside to find the crooks.
As they drag Krane to their waiting van, one of the thugs, Naps, challenges you to a battle.
This is your first battle against someone from Cipher, a group of organized criminals determined to take over the world with a Pokémon army. This is also your first chance to Snag a Shadow Pokémon with your new Snag Machine.
When Naps brings out Teddiursa, your Aura Reader reacts, identifying it as a Shadow Pokémon. It's up to you to snag it with one of the Poké Balls that Krane gives you. The Snag Machine will automatically convert the Poké Ball to a Snag Ball.
Normally you should weaken a Pokémon with attacks or afflict it with a status condition before trying to capture it. In this battle, however, you can't attack (Krane won't let you). Throw a Poké Ball, and the capture automatically succeeds.
The Professor is taken away. Back inside the Lab, the researchers and scientists ponder what to do next. Eventually, Lily decides to continue Krane's research and finish the Purify Chamber.
Before going to Gateon Port, there's something you can do first. Go back to Kaminko's House.
Once again, you get stopped by Chobin, who thinks you're a burglar, again, and battles you.
