Zero Lab

Once defeated, you will enter the lab and find Sada/Turo slumped down on a chair. You will discover that they are in fact an AI created by the Professors as the Professors had passed a long time ago protecting Koraidon/Miraidon and soon decided to plan to get the time machine set up by the professors stopped in order to stop these Pokémon from causing problems in Paldea.

The Professors say that they will tell you what to do and the book is the key to stopping the time machine, but they are programmed to stop you at all costs, requiring you to battle them, with them using Pokémon they got through the time machine.

Zero Lab

If defeated, the AI will go into a special security protection mode and lock everyone's Poké Balls other than ones registered by Sada/Turo. They will challenge you with Koraidon/Miraidon but as you all can't use your Poké Balls, you struggle to battle until you realise that you can bring Koraidon/Miraidon out and finally use them in battle. It will change form and you can battle against the AI
