Pokemon Shining Pearl Playthrough Part 6

Shorter update today since today was mostly level grinding and hiking up Mt. Coronet.

I have my next destination in mind: The peak of Mt. Coronet. The path to the summit is covered in snow and littered with Galactic's best agents - "best" being relative since they still don't put up much resistance.

Atop the mountain rests Spear Pillar, the ruins of some ancient structure. Cyrus is here, but between him and me stand Mars and Jupiter. Apparently Saturn isn't...

So, as soon as I leave Byron's gym, Brent is waiting. At least he isn't looking to throw down and get embarrassed again. Instead, he drags me to the library where Rowan and Lucas are waiting. Mid-conversation, there's an earthquake. Rowan suspects it may be connected to the three odd lakes in the region, so he sends each of us to investigate. I get assigned to Lake Valor, and after a brief detour to Iron Island and a meeting with the mysterious Riley, I get ready to head over there.

We last left off with Lucas annoying our intrepid heroine Lisa... about... something. Time to find out what he wants from us.

Lucas apparently had his Pokedex stolen by Team Galactic, which has me questioning (a) how he let the thing slip out of his grasp, and (b) what Team Galactic would need it for in the first place. So yeah, we have to beat down the two grunts who stole the thing, and maybe FINALLY I can continue on with this quest.

Routes 214 and 213 are mostly...

The last time we left Lisa, she had finished defeating Gardenia and prepared to storm the Team Galactic facility in Eterna City.

So, I enter this sinister looking facility, and something tells me I'm not welcome here, based on the number of Galactic grunts that confront me. Not that they pose much of a threat, but free experience is free experience. Century evolves into Luxray at this point, so that's a bonus. I finally make my way to the top floor, where this lady with purple hair...

Lisa continues her quest for Gym Badges in this second installment!

So, after getting my first badge, my next goal is Eterna City, but getting there requires a detour and some backtracking. Back in Jubilife, Rowan and Lucas are being harassed by these oddly dressed dudes with bowl cuts who call themselves Team Galactic. They're dispatched fairly easily.

After traversing more routes and a cave, during which Kanon, Kotori, and Century evolve, I enter Floaroma, a small...
