Main article: Area Zero journals → Zero Lab

A journal entry describing the professor's efforts in creating a way to lock Poké Balls can be found on a desk. This system is later used to lock the Poké Balls of those not registered to Sada’sS or Turo’sV ID when Paradise Protection Protocol is activated.

  • Two photos can be found hanging on a whiteboard filled with equations, the first depicting a younger Arven playing with his Maschiff, and the second solely depicting Maschiff.
    • A smaller version of the first photo, with Arven's body partially out of frame, can be found in Arven's dorm room at Naranja AcademyS/Uva AcademyV.
    • One of these photos may possibly be from the lighthouse lab on Poco Path, as it is the former home of the professor and Arven, and because an empty photo frame can be found inside.
  • A shelf on the first floor of the lab appears to contain the professor's Gym Badges, as well as a Hall of Fame Badge.
  • The time machine inside the lab appears to have hexagonal walls, similar to that of a mysterious crystalline Pokémon mentioned in the Scarlet BookS/Violet BookV and in the professor's journal entries.
