Zook will storm off, wanting nothing to do with Cipher anymore. Good riddance. A long chapter to a very over-written book.

Head up towards the building. Two Bodybuilders charge at you and block you. Try to sneak by. They'll see the Snag Machine and recognize that you were once on TV. Say yes to his question. Just as he's about to punch your lights out, who should show up? None other than Gonzap and Wakin from Team Snagem. Wakin orders his Gloom to put the guards to sleep. Enter the building.

Gorigan will get mad again when you beat him. He threatens to destroy the Cipher Key Lair. Mr. Verich suddenly appears on the big screen and tells Gorigan to accept defeat. Verich reveals that he is in fact the Grand Master of Cipher, Greevil, and the main antagonist of the game. He says his plan is unharmed and that their master weapon, Shadow Lugia, codenamed XD001, is complete. He dares you to come to Citadark Isle, off the coast of Gateon Port, but it's surrounded by cruel waves and thick clouds. No one can reach it…unless you have the right transportaion method.

Gorigan tells you about XD001 being the one who dropped the S.S. Libra in the middle of the desert. He says that Citadark Isle will be crawling with the Shadow Pokémon that Gorigan himself made. Gorigan will run off. On Gorigan's desk is the Complete Shadow Pokémon List, which will be automatically added to your P★DA. Now you can see a sneak peak of what's in store at Citadark Isle. Exit the Cipher Key Lair.

As you head down the stairs past the Healing Machine, someone shouts that they've been robbed! As you exit, the Worker will shout for them to give it back. Talk to him and you'll find out that a Shadow Pokémon was stolen, by two men, one with hair like a mohawk, and the other with hair like a ball. Must be Folly and Trudly, and Miror B. Talk to the Worker in the room and you'll find out it was a Shadow Dragonite that was stolen.

Go back left and down the stairs and you can find Bag Battle CD SpriteBattle CD 47 on the conveyor belt. Head back up and exit Cipher Key Lair and go to Kaminko's House to battle Chobin one more time.

Kaminko's House

Once you get there, Chobin will e-mail you, even though you're standing right in front of him.

Chobin demands a rematch!
Chobin
The Robo Groudon of yore is no more! Chobin has modified it and upgraded it! Therefore, a rematch with Michael is very much desired! Chobin will not lose again! The new Robo Groudon is supreme!

He then realizes we're standing right in front of him. He actually recognizes it's you this time, not some burglar. He will battle you.

Go to the right room by the stairs and you can find Bag Battle CD SpriteBattle CD 49 in that bookshelf. These two Battle CDs give you access to Bag TM Fire SpriteTM11 (Sunny Day) (49) and Bag TM Water SpriteTM18 (Rain Dance) (50). Go downstairs and you'll be in the room with the colored hooks. Navigate them, and you can find Bag Battle CD SpriteBattle CDs 11 and 29 by navigating the hooks again. There will also be more entries for Jovi's random diary.

If you go down the elevator from Dr. Kaminko's room, you can also find Bag Battle CD SpriteBattle CD 23. You may also notice the Robo Kyogre is not there.

Now exit and head for Gateon Port.

Gateon Port

How does one get to Citadark Isle? Go to the Parts Shop and talk to Perr. He says Makan has finished the Robo Kyogre. Talk to Makan and he'll tell you that you can use the Robo Kyogre. Before you go to Citadark Isle, Professor Krane sends you an e-mail. Haven't heard from him for a while.

Visit me at the Pokémon HQ Lab
Krane, Pokémon HQ Lab
Hi, Michael. It sounds like the battle against Cipher is entering a critical stage. There is something I would like you to have. Please come see me on the ground floor of the Pokémon HQ Lab when you can.

Let's go back to the Pokémon HQ Lab.

Go to Krane's office. He says he has something for you. He opens the secret staircase and leads you down. Go down the stairs. He gives you the Bag Master Ball SpriteMaster Ball! Now we can head over to Citadark Isle. But first, you can battle Supertrainer Aferd again.
