Mt. Skylift, most commonly known as Skylift, is a dungeon that contains mostly Flying-Type Pokémon found North-West of Grassroot Town, and North-East of Pitch-Black Abyss. It provides the player HM Fly at the end of the dungeon, and has no boss to defeat in order to complete the dungeon.

Due to the amount of enemies spawned, ease of defeating the enemy Pokémon, resources provided and experience points gained, Mt. Skylift is the best dungeon to train Pokémon from level 25 up to level 40.


The scenery in this dungeon changes 3 times. Each time, the Pokémon grow stronger and higher on the evolutionary scale.

Low Floors (1-15)

The lower floors of Mt. Skylift feature mild, orange dirt tiles and orange walls. Various weather are present starting as early as 1F, and water tiles are common. Rooms tend to be small, with pathways often leading -players to neighboring rooms or occasionally dead ends. From 6F onwards, clear weather may be prevalent due to Swablu regularly spawning, starting on the 6F.

Mid-Floors (16-25)

At the midfloor, a more canyon-like surrounding is presented. The floors are sand-coloured and the walls dyed brick-red. Room sizes varies from this point onwards; the rooms may be small or are moderately large, and there are no water tiles on the mid-floors. Pathways often directly lead players to neighboring rooms as usual. Clear weather is also prevalent due to Swablu and Altaria regularly spawning on these floors.

Upper Floors (26-36)

The scenery set here changes drastically, with the walls and floors appearing in shades of cobble. The rooms at this point of the dungeon are moderately sized, with occasional large rooms. Patches of water tiles reoccur again on the upper floors. The weather here is often Rainy due to Pelipper regularly spawning, otherwise it will remain clear as Altaria are also found on the upper floors.
