Team Galactic Eterna Building's first design in Pokémon Adventures
Diamond & Pearl chapter

The Team Galactic Eterna Building first appeared in its Diamond and Pearl design in Ring Around the Roserade II. While Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum were training for Platinum's Gym battle against Gardenia outside the building, the trio encountered Cynthia, who demonstrated her Spiritomb's Psychic by capturing their starters' attacks from mid-air. After the training was over and the Pokédex holder trio headed to the Eterna Gym, Cynthia was revealed to be investigating the disappearance of the local Bike Shop owner, Rad Rickshaw, who was being held captive by Team Galactic at the building. Using the attacks captured by Spiritomb, Cynthia was able to drive away the Team Galactic Grunts guarding Rad Rickshaw and cut his ropes, freeing him. As he left the building, he found a grain of rice on one of the Razor Leaves that had cut his ropes. Recognizing it as a brand of rice grown in Twinleaf Town, he incorrectly deduced that the Pokédex holders had been the ones who had saved him, and gave each of them a Bicycle as thanks.

In Winning Over Wingull, Pearl witnessed a couple helicopters taking off from the heliport atop of the Team Galactic Eterna Building from a distance.

 
Team Galactic Eterna Building's second design in Pokémon Adventures
Platinum chapter

In Unplugging Rotom (Heat, Wash, Mow, Fan, Frost), Diamond and Pearl followed the Rotom from the Old Chateau into the Team Galactic Eterna Building, which had been renovated to its Platinum design. They saw Rotom passing through a door labeled "Secret Room", which they unlocked using the Secret Key they had found at the Old Chateau, revealing a room filled with appliances for Rotom to inhabit. While they were unable to get a hit on it due to it constantly switching from appliance to another, Diamond soon befriended the Rotom when he realized it was just trying to show off its many forms. Having taken a liking to Diamond, Rotom then expressed willingness to join the two, which they happily accepted.
