In addition to the standard features of a Pokémon Center, it contains the Network Machine, run by Celio, a good friend of Bill. It connects Kanto's, Hoenn's, and Orre's Pokémon Storage Systems, effectively allowing players to link with Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, Pokémon Colosseum, and Pokémon XD.
When it is first seen, it is not yet active, but after the player retrieves the Ruby and Sapphire from Mt. Ember and Chrono Island, respectively, it begins to function. However, players must enter the Hall of Fame and obtain both the National Pokédex and the Rainbow Pass.
Three levels of communication are shown on the machine's display. The level shown depends on the progress of the player.
The first level is shown as soon as the player arrives at One Island for the first time, when Bill guides him/her to the Pokémon Network Center in order to meet his friend Celio.
The second level is shown once Bill has helped Celio in One Island and grants access to the Pokémon Storage System as well as allowing communication with Kanto. More precisely, it is shown once the player has rescued Lostelle from the wild Hypno at Berry Forest on Kin Island. When reached, the red, green and blue lights on the front of the machine will flash on and off.
The third level is displayed once the Ruby and Sapphire have been retrieved. The machine is now fully operational and is able to communicate with Hoenn and Orre in addition to Kanto.
