The Lysandre Labs (Japanese: フラダリラボFleur-de-lis Labs) is the moniker of the hideout located behind a china cabinet in Lysandre Café, which is located in Lumiose City's Magenta Plaza, serving as one of Team Flare's headquarters. It is also the location from which the ultimate weapon is activated.
A Hidden Floor can only be unlocked by entering a special password at the elevator; during the post-game Looker missions, Malva will unlock it for the player. The Hidden Floor can only be accessed from B1 and can only access B1 and B2. It also has the same layout as B1 except that all of the connected rooms are blocked off except for the middle room in the north.
If the player inspects the bookshelves in the library room, they will discover research material related to Kalos's history.
The king's name was AZ, and he was both the beginning and the end. He used technology unlike any seen during that era to unite Kalos for the first time
The king was proud of the technology he had used to bring Kalos prosperity, but he couldn't help but use it in a way that had never been intended... AZ, the man who was king, disappeared.
When AZ, the man who was king, vanished, he took the key to the ultimate weapon. That is the item required to activate the weapon.
The King couldn't escape war with those who targeted a wealthy Kalos. The war grew so violent and ugly, the king was forced to send his own beloved Pokémon into battle.
AZ had a younger brother. It's said that he led a legion of greedy souls who wanted to seize the seize the Kalos region. His dark intention was to make it his own. But when he saw how Kalos had been ravaged by the war, he took the weapon his brother had created, and he buried the weapon deep underground.
The king's younger brother told his progeny the location of the ultimate weapon and died. That is something to be used by sophisticated powers, not by humans. Human beings must create a world where such a weapon is a necessary...
Full of sorrow, AZ built the ultimate weapon. When he did this he left the following words. 'What's wrong with bringing something you love back into this world? Without my beloved Pokémon, no other Pokémon have any meaning!
The mountains will never know one another, but people can encounter other people. And people and Pokémon mix together.
Over the ages, people and Pokémon worked alongside one another and created many things. As a result of this, a leader appeared among the humans. That leader sought to produce even more goods. Increased production of goods created a gap between haves and have-nots.
Also in the room there is a desk where the player can find a report detailing Lysandre's past:
When I was young, I went on a journey around Kalos with my Pokemon. I reached out to help those suffering because they had nothing. At first, they were grateful, but eventually, they began to take my help for granted and demand more and more… Will fools like those people consume the Kalos region? This world is stable and secure. So the population of people and Pokemon continues to increase unabated. But there is a limit to the amount of money and energy the world is capable of producing. Either everything is lost, or only a handful are saved. This is something best not left to man… I must use a tool of higher power.
The labs appeared again in Coming Apart at the Dreams! and the following two episodes, after Team Flare had started their attack on Lumiose City with the mind controlled Z2. Serena, Mairin, Professor Sycamore, and Team Rocket went to the lab in order to rescue Chespie. After successfully rescuing Chespie, the four made their way to the Giant Rock, which reacted to the energy Chespie had within it, causing it to absorb Chespie and mutate into the shape of a Zygarde 50% Forme. Lysandre Labs was then destroyed by the Giant Rock, which began traveling towards the Anistar City Sundial.
