The Quick Way

(Note: If you skip the trainer battles here, you won't be able to battle them anymore after you complete the area.) If you do want to take a shortcut, then use the elevator to go to 5F, then go west and there will be a cutscene. You and your rival will team up to fight a double battle against Team Rocket Admin Archer and a Team Rocket Grunt. They have a level 34 Muk, a level 37 Electrode, a level 37 Golbat, a level 34 Raticate, a level 37 Weezing.

Step on the Correct Teleporter

Click the button below to find out which teleporter to use to go to the final battle in the building.

The correct teleporter is on 3F. Go south from the 3F elevator, then go west and go into the room where there is a Scientist next to the table and a Grunt sitting at the table (use the Card Key to open the door if it's closed). Step on the teleporter south of that Grunt.
