Pokémon HQ Lab (Japanese: ポケモン総合研究所 Pokémon Coordination Lab) is a location in Orre, northwest of most other Orre landmarks. Key NPCs reside here, such as Lily, Professor Krane, and Jovi. The Purify Chamber is also located here. This is where the storyline begins in Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. It is also where the only Master Ball in the game can be obtained, given to the player by Professor Krane when the battle against Cipher reaches a turning point. The player's room is located on the left side of the first floor.

  • A Kecleon is hiding on the table close to where Adon is hiding.
  • Early in the game, the player can talk to the receptionist in the east wing about previous Shadow Pokémon incidents; there is a typographical error in one of her explanations, with two dots ("..") appearing where an ellipsis ("...") would be expected.
