At [[Team Flare]]'s Headquarters, [[Xerosic]] inspects [[Z2]] before instructing a {{cleanuptc|width=50%Team Flare Admin}} to begin irradiating it. The irradiation hits Z2 with bolts of energy, and it cries out in pain. Xerosic looks on, impressed by Z2's power.
At [[Team Flare]]'s Headquarters, [[Xerosic]] inspects [[Z2]] before instructing a {{tc|Team Flare Admin}} to begin the irradiation. This causes Z2 to be hit by bolts of energy as it cries out in pain. Watching the results, Xerosic is impressed by Z2's power. Meanwhile, {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} arrive in [[Jacore Town]]. [[Squishy]] appears to sense Z2's pain and hops out of {{an|Bonnie}}'s bag and onto her head. Bonnie notices that Squishy seems to be sad and sings [[Puni-chan's Song|her song]] to try and cheer Squishy up. This seems to cheer Squishy up and they continue on their journey. Walking past an information screen, {{an|Serena}} spots that a beautiful gem is being exhibited at the hotel and is keen to visit along with Bonnie. She suggests they visit, which they agree to do and head off to the hotel, unaware that a [[Locke|mysterious figure]] is watching them from the rooftops. Ash and his friends arrive at the hotel only to learn from the receptionist that the exhibit is closed and invites them to come back another time. Ash asks if they have a room available. Since they do, he suggests staying the night and checking the exhibit tomorrow. Later that night, the mysterious figure from before opens a skylight in the roof and jumps down into the exhibit. The figure approaches the gem, which is locked, but with the assistance of {{DL|Locke|Lefty}}, starts to open the lock. In a corridor, Serena is suggesting they go to bed early when an alarm sounds and they spot two guards running past, saying its the gem exhibit. They decide to follow the guards. At the exhibit, a guard notices that the gem is still there as another notices the padlock is unlocked. They then hear laughter from the skylight and look up as Ash and his friends arrive. The figure introduces himself as Master Thief Keyes and admits to opening the lock before throwing down a calling card and escaping as the guards call for [[Officer Jenny]].
