Over the next few days, the team gets accustomed to life at the Guild and the nearby [[Treasure Town]]. Among the folks they meet are {{mdc|Wigglytuff|2}}, the kindhearted Guild Leader, {{mdc|Chatot|2}}, the hot-tempered yet well-meaning second-in-command, {{mdc|Bidoof|2}}, the newest recruit prior to the team joining, the Guild chef {{p|Chimecho}} (also in charge of maintaining the team), {{p|Diglett}} and {{mdc|Loudred|2}}, the Guild sentries, {{p|Dugtrio}}, maintainers of the job boards, {{p|Magnezone}}, the local sheriff, and other exploration teams. As they are introduced to the Guild, they learn of the fact that rogue Pokémon have been wreaking havoc in the world due to the disruption of time, Pokémon cannot [[evolution|evolve]], and new "Mystery Dungeons" have been revealed and open to exploration.
The player discovers not too long after that he/shethey hashave the ability to spontaneously see things in the past and future, but only when touching an object of some kind. This is known as the [[Dimensional Scream]], as revealed later by {{mdc|Dusknoir|2}}.
===The legend of the Time Gears===
After the player saves Manaphy and after a couple of days of plain jobs, [[Team Charm]] pays a visit to the Guild. Team Charm consists of {{p|Lopunny}}, {{p|Medicham}}, and {{p|Gardevoir}}. This trio is legendary for their rank, which is the Master Rank, and for their style of treasure hunting. A former member, surprisingly, is Wigglytuff. Team Charm came because they're stuck on a hunt for treasure because they don't have a key. They ask Wigglytuff and Wigglytuff "claims" that he doesn't have it. But just before everyone thinks Team Charm will leave, Lopunny gives Wigglytuff a Perfect Apple and Wigglytuff finds the key with a big bang from his room. When Team Charm is leaving, everyone asks if they can go to the [[Aegis Cave]], including the player's team. Lopunny, the leader of Team Charm, agrees and says everyone can go after they open Aegis Cave with the key. The treasure of Aegis Cave is guarded by three legendary beings, {{p|Regice}}, {{p|Regirock}}, and {{p|Registeel}}. After defeating them, Team Charm assists the player in fighting {{p|Regigigas}}.
Later, {{mdc|Darkrai|2}} (disguised as {{p|Cresselia}}) appears in the player's dreams and tells the player that their continued existence is causing a distortion in space. On the night before going to {{mdc|Palkia|2}} for an explanation, Palkia itself attacks the team, spiriting them away to its domain, the [[Spacial Rift]]. They battle Palkia for answers, but it gets trapped in a nightmare. Darkrai (still disguised as Cresselia) tries to finish off the team using Palkia, but it is stopped by another Cresselia, who reveals that the first was an impostor by the name of Darkrai, who reveals itself to be the one distorting space. Although Darkrai invites the team to stop him, Cresselia thinks it is a trap, because normally Darkrai run away when found, doing its work in the shadows and only coming out to finish the job. The team decides to heed Darkrai's call, and Darkrai reveals his plans, by stopping time or space, the world would stop and be covered in darkness, and all Pokémon would share an everlasting nightmare, in which Darkrai would rule. In addition to this, Darkrai also reveals that he had been responsible for everything right from the beginning, from the collapse of Temporal Tower to the player's very own transformation and memory loss. Darkrai lets the team decide if they want to join him ruling the world in darkness. The player's partner decides that it's useless to resist, so he/shethey decidesdecide to join Darkrai, but it'sthis event is not real. The player realizes this is just another illusion, and breaks free of it. With the partner back on the player's side, the team battles Darkrai and his minions and wins hopefully. Darkrai attempts to flee through a portal, but Palkia arrives and attempts to stop Darkrai from leaving by unleashing an attack on him. But insteadInstead of destroying him, he attacks the Dimensional Hole, thus erasing Darkrai's memories, much like what happened to the player. Darkrai has no more memory of his evil ambitions for good, and wanders the Pokémon world; his location is at that point unknown.
