Cipher Lab

Cipher Lab

Your trip to the Cipher Lab is your first chance to infiltrate Cipher's Shadow Pokémon operations. Therefore, there are several Shadow Pokémon you can capture in this area.

The lab is guarded by the Hexagon Brothers, a team of six Cipher Peons that each favor a particular type of Pokémon. Apparently, they're not very smart, because they can't remember how to count to six. They will do a short "sound off" and count to six…sort of…

Anyways…you must defeat at least one of them before you can enter.

If you go into the Lab and back out again, the Hexagon Brothers will do another "sound off" (this time they count way past six) and you can rebattle them, with replacements for their Shadow Pokémon you presumably snagged (except for Greesix).
