Team Galactic HQ in Platinum

The Team Galactic HQ (Japanese: ギンガだんアジト Team Galactic Hideout) is the main center of Team Galactic's operations. It is located in Veilstone City, Sinnoh.

As well as housing numerous machinery used to experiment with Pokémon, it provides hospitality to its members, encouraging health and energy in order to help execute Team Galactic's plans.

In the games

In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, the Team Galactic HQ serves as the first place the player learns about the Red Chain, and Cyrus's plan to use Dialga/Palkia's power to destroy the universe and recreate it under his control.

The player cannot enter the Team Galactic HQ without the Galactic Key, which can only be found in the Galactic Warehouse later in the game. Once inside, the player must make their way through the HQ, constantly battling grunts. They finally reach the top, where they meet Cyrus. He tells them about the Team Galactic plan to recreate the universe, almost unknown to anyone other than the commanders. Cyrus then engages in battle with the player. When defeated, Cyrus begins his trek to Spear Pillar. The player encounters Saturn and Charon*, who guards the legendary Pokémon Uxie, Azelf, and Mesprit, who are all held in a machine. Saturn explains their capture: to take the jewels on those Pokémon in order to create a Red Chain, a mechanism used to shackle and control the Pokémon who created Sinnoh. After battling and defeating Saturn, Team Galactic obtains the Red Chain. After the end of the game, while Cyrus is missing, Saturn is left in charge of the building and the remnants of the membership. No longer the headquarters, the Team Galactic HQ's name is changed to the Galactic Veilstone Building.

The Team Galactic HQ is apparently both a housing area for Team Galactic members as well as a lab filled with machines used for experiments on Pokémon. Alongside the large machines and devices, there are three rooms providing hospitality for members: the Team Galactic TV Room, Kitchen, and Nap Room. The TV Room contains a state-of-the-art audio and video system only available for member use. The Kitchen, encouraging health and prosperity, consists of a refrigerator, filled with unidentified murky drinks, and a sink, caked with unidentifiable substances. In Platinum, the Kitchen also contains a report on the stolen plates from the mythical Pokémon statues in Eterna City. The Nap Room holds two beds to heal the trainer's party. The members of the Team Galactic HQ also get around by using portals that lead to different rooms across the building. Yellow portals are two-way portals that transfer people across the building, while green portals are one-way; returning people to the ground floor.

It is also the place where the player obtains a Master Ball, the only one available in the game without trading, importing, cloning, cheating, or winning the Jubilife TV Lottery.

Cyrus's computer

If the player reads Cyrus's computer, they will discover a report on the legendary Pokémon of Sinnoh. The computer reads:

The Creation of Space

Some say the universe originated from a massive explosion. Similarly, Sinnoh is thought to have been formed by an explosion in ancient times. Needless to say, the explosion came from the power of a Pokémon. The Pokémon must have been the mythical creature considered a deity by the ancients. Our aim is not to capture the mythical Pokémon, but to obtain its power...

Mythical Pokémon

The mythical Pokémon...

According to myths, the Pokémon created Sinnoh with its power. However, capturing the Pokémon with a Poké Ball prevents it from using its full power... But with the Red Chain, the Pokémon can be shackled, and its power can be used without restraint...

Red Chain

The Red Chain...

The Pokémon of the three lakes and Mt. Coronet are somehow connected. Capturing the Pokémon of the lakes will free the Pokémon of Mt. Coronet. From the Pokémon of the lakes, crystals can be extracted to create a Red Chain. Using that Red Chain, the mythical Pokémon can be summoned and shackled to do as we command...

Trivia

  • There is a Team Galactic credo posted on the wall that changes between versions. On Diamond Version, it says:
Everything belongs to Team Galactic! Look beyond the world — time will become Team Galactic's!
While on Pearl and Platinum Versions, the credo says:
Everything belongs to Team Galactic! Look beyond the world — space will become Team Galactic's!
