Now Fly back to Veilstone City, it is time to raid Team Galactic's Headquarters.

Head towards the Team Galactic HQ and talk to the lone grunt there, who is angry at you since his Clefairy was taken away after you defeated him before and his partner had quit the team. He claims ignorance about a Storage Key and runs away, luckily Looker shows up and states he has the Storage Key with him and suggests that it is best to enter the HQ through the Warehouse you were at before.

Meeting Hall

Galactic Meeting Hall

You will meet up with Looker here and listen to Cyrus giving his speech about how the world is incomplete and that he now has the power to create a new one for Team Galactic's benefit. After he and the grunts leave, Looker finding this preposterous leaves to investigate this further. Follow in the direction he went to find another warp panel that will take you to a new area of 2F.

You'll be in the upper right area of 2F where there are some beds to rest your Pokémon team. Hidden in the right bed that is accessible from the front area of the bed is a Poké Doll. Climb the stairs to 3F.

After dealing with two Galactic Grunts you'll find 3 warp panels here. The upper right one leads you to an area that you can find a Protein that is not easy to see because of the boxes, the upper left will get you an item and the lower left is the correct one you'll need that will take you to another area in the 3F that has some stairs that will take you to the 4F.

4F

Galactic HQ 4F

This is where Cyrus's office is located. After opening the locked door Cyrus will greet you and mention the details he said about creating a new world for Team Galactic is a lie since the new world is only for him since he feels his underlings are just as flawed as the rest of the world. Finding you interesting he'll challenge you to a battle.




His first Pokémon Sneasel is easily vulnerable to Fighting-types. His other two Crobat and Honchkrow both have Flying-type characteristics and should be easily vulnerable to Rock, Ice and Electric-types. Just remember that Crobat is the faster of the two and may try to confuse your Pokémon with Supersonic and Honchkrow possesses better physical attack moves that could KO your Pokémon if you are not careful.

Lake Trio room

Afterwards Cyrus will give you a Master Ball and then leaves mentioning if you wish to save the lake Pokémon then use the nearby warp panel as he no longer has any need for them before leaving for the Spear Pillar. Use that warp pannel and you will go through a hidden room that is where the captive Lake trio are being held. Once you reach that room where they are, you can overhear a conversation between Charon and Saturn about how Charon is happy with the new world Cyrus will create. Talk to Saturn and he'll challenge you to a battle since unlike Cyrus he will not let you roam freely and interfere with their plans



Saturn's team is the same as before but at higher levels so the same tactics should work here. Once you defeat him, Saturn will let you press the switch that will set Azelf, Mesprit, and Uxie free. He mentions before leaving the Cyrus crafted a special red chain for capturing something on Mt. Coronet. Return to Cyrus's office and a new pathway will have opened up with a warp panel that will take to the green colored warp panel that was found by the right entrance for Team Galactic HQ. Now prepare a balanced Pokémon team, with the HM abilities Surf, Strength, Rock Smash, and Rock Climb included as you will need them for this trip. From Oreburgh City head to the south entrance of Mt. Coronet.
