(Sarah leads Sam, Zoren, and Lucy into the JCR&D Facility. The inside of the facility is a large white hallway with various large walls separating the various areas of the facility.)
Lucy: So this is the JCR&D Facility. It's much more interesting than I imagined it.
Sarah: Yeah, they just finished renovating it. They added quite a few more labs, they added a new computer mainframe, and they revamped the lunch hall as well as adding a free ice cream bar.
Sam: A free ice cream bar, that sounds neat.
Zoren: No Sam, we will not be going to the ice cream bar.
Sarah: Over there is my lab. Here, follow me.
(Sam, Zoren, and Lucy follow Sarah to her lab. Sarah's lab is a slightly large lab with several desks at the edges of the room and a large table in the middle of the room. In side the room is a scientist.)
Cy: Hello Sarah! Who are your friends there?
Sarah: Guys, this is Cy, my boss. Cy, these are my friends, Sam, Zoren, and Lucy.
Sam: Hello Cy!
Lucy: So what's the project that you have been working on lately?
Sarah: It is this.
(Sarah holds out her arm and points to a watch like device on her wrist.)
Sarah: It is called a Xtransceiver. It has many different functions, but it is mostly made to be used as a video communications device.
Sam: It sounds like it would be something that would be very useful, especially for travelers who want to keep in contact with friends.
Zoren: It's definitely easier then sending letters back and forth...
Cy: Actually, we are currently looking for beta testers to test out the Xtransceiver. So if you want then you can become beta testers.
Lucy: That sounds like a good idea.
Sam: No Lucy, it sounds like a great idea.
Cy: Ok, let me go get a few Xtransceivers.
(Cy walks over to a desk in the back of the room. She picks up three Xtransceivers off of the desk. She then walks back to the others and hands Sam, Zoren, and Lucy each one Xtransceiver.)
Cy: Here are your Xtransceivers. You should be able to figure out how to use them on your own. But we are planning to work on making a user guide. If there are any glitches, then the Xtransceiver will send the data here, so you can just keep on using it if there are any glitches. ...And that's about it.
Sarah: Here let me show you how to use it.
Cy: Wait... Also you shouldn't try calling anyone with an umlaut in their name, as it may cause an electrical shock.
(Sam, Sarah, Zoren, and Lucy walk out of the building. As they are walking away from the building there is a large booming noise. Then the ground started to shake, but soon stopped.)
Lucy: What was that?
Sam: Judging from the fact that the booming sound reached us before the quake, I'd say it was likely an explosion which caused a large underground mine or cave to collapse.
Sarah: Then I'd guess that since the sound came from the east that it happened in the Oreburgh Mine. We should probably go see what it was.
Zoren: ... This should be interesting...
(Sam, Sarah, Zoren, and Lucy quickly run towards Oreburgh City. When they reach the end of Route 203 at the entrance to Oreburgh Gate, their path is blocked by a researcher.)
Alice: ... Um... Are you people here because of the explosion?
Sarah: Yes. We were in Jubilife City when it occurred and we came here to see what exactly happened.
Lucy: What exactly did happen?
Alice: ... Well... Um... There was an explosion... in Oreburgh Mine... And the Professor said... ...
Lucy: What's wrong?
Alice: ... I'm sorry, it's nothing... I'm just a bit nervous around others...
Sarah: What was it you were trying to say?
Alice: ... The Professor asked me to go to the Old Chateau, and find something... But, I don't have any pokémon, so I can't...
Sarah: We can help you. We're pokémon trainers. Right guys, we can help Alice?
(Sarah looks at Sam, Zoren, and Lucy. The all nod their heads in agreement.)
Alice: ... Thanks! ... What is your name?
Sarah: I'm Sarah. This is Sam. This is Zoren. And this is Lucy.
Alice: ... Thanks, Sarah....
(Lucy takes a Town Map out of her bag. She then finds the location of the Old Chateau on the map.)
Lucy: Here it is! The Old Chateau is in the Eterna Forest, north of Floaroma Town.
Sam: I think that this is official the start of our adventure!
Zoren: Somehow I knew you would say that, Sam...
(Sam, Sarah, Zoren, Lucy, and Alice set off towards Floaroma Town, through Jubilife City.)
