Pokemon X and Y Walkthrough - Team Flare Secret HQ
<- Lysandre Labs Walkthrough Index Route 18 ->

Before you enter the Team Flare Secret HQ, it's best to bring a lot of Ultra Balls. Also, Pokemon with False Swipe and a move that can inflict a status ailment will be very useful.

Walk to the northwest corner of Geosenge Town. A grunt will stop you for a battle.

Your rival gives a motivational speech as you approach the entrance to the secret lab. Take the elevator into the underground lab and talk with Lysandre. He explains his plan will get rid of all Pokemon because they will only be tools for human expansion. This leads to a battle.

Lysandre says it's too late for you to stop the ultimate weapon and suggests you see for yourself. Use the door left of Lysandre. Battle the trainers along this path with your rival by your side.

A locked door waits at the end of the path. Shauna unlocks it by using a device given to her by Clemont. On the other side, Shauna and your rival get chased off by an admin, which leaves you to battle four trainers.

Once the four admins scurry off, it's a very good idea to save before moving. Once you take a step, the legendary Pokemon will burst out of its dormant state and attack. To make catching it as easy as possible, use this strategy: use False Swipe until the Pokemon has 1 HP remaining, inflict a status ailment (Paralysis via TM 73 Thunder Wave is probably easiest), and then throw Ultra Balls until you eventually catch it. TM 54 False Swipe is given away by a Scientist in Sycamore's Lab and TM 73 Thunder Wave is in Route 10.

Even after defeat, Lysandre still wants to use the ultimate weapon. This time he wants to give you eternal life so you can feel the pain of never seeing a perfect world. That doesn't seem too appealing, so your rival and Shauna drag you out of the lab as the ultimate weapon retracts back into the earth.

Sina and Dexio...I mean, the masked heroes, greet you outside. They confirm that Team Flare is defeated and you can continue on your adventure. Everyone leaves and AZ slowly approaches. He says the man who created the ultimate weapon and the Pokemon revived by it are no longer together. He's searching for the Pokemon with eternal life. With that in mind, fly back to Anistar City and head south to Route 18.
