Synopsis: I'm gonna stop saying it. You know what I'm doing.
At the Research Center, {{ashfr|the gang}} meets up with Cynthia, who introduces them to her grandmother, [[Professor Carolina]], head of the Celestic Town Historical Research Center. On a nearby rooftop, [[Saturn]] recognizes Ash and co. as the group that [[DP069|interfered]] with their plan to steal the meteorites from [[Veilstone City]], and warns [[Mars]] about them. [[Cyrus]] approaches the Research Center using his cover as a world-famous mogul while Mars and Saturn prepare their attack. As Croagunk once again stares off into space instead of stopping Brock from hitting on Cynthia, Ash and Dawn also take note of Croagunk's strange behavior. Team Rocket disguise themselves as police officers in order to gain entry into the Research Center.
Inside the Research Center, Professor Carolina explains the town's connection to {{p|Dialga}} and {{p|Palkia}}, as well as her own extensive research. Dawn and Ash recognize {{p|Mesprit}} and {{p|Azelf}} from a carving of the [[Lake trio|Lake Guardiansguardians]] (though they do not know their names), and relay [[DP001|their]] [[DP078|experiences]] with the two Pokémon. Cynthia tells the gang that Mesprit represents Emotion and Azelf represents Willpower. Cynthia also tells everyone that there is a third Lake Guardian at [[Lake Acuity]] near [[Snowpoint City]], {{p|Uxie}} who represents Knowledge. Brock realises that Uxie is the Pokémon they heard about from {{an|May}} and [[Zoey]] during the [[Wallace Cup]]. Cyrus suggests that Professor Carolina show Ash and Dawn the Lustrous Orb. In the Celestic Ruins, behind the Research Center, Mars' gang finishes setting up explosive charges.
Team Rocket, still in disguise as police officers, relieve the officers guarding the Lustrous Orb, but before they can sneak into the room, [[Officer Jenny]] leads Ash and co. down the hallway. Professor Carolina uses a key card and a palm scanner to open the room with the Lustrous Orb, where both Ash and Dawn examine the item, but feel nothing. This enrages Cyrus, who reveals that the Lustrous Orb may be directly connected to {{p|Arceus|the dawn of time}}. As Cyrus tries to coax more information out of Ash and Dawn, Mars sets off the explosives, causing a panic within the Research Center. Professor Carolina finds that the door to the room with the Lustrous Orb won't reseal. The security system of the Research Center is revealed to have been compromised, which leads Cynthia to suggest moving the Lustrous Orb. Ash volunteers to help protect the orb, and Officer Jenny recruits the in-disguise Team Rocket to help, as well.
