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. Many different weathers statuses can occur here, Sunny, Rainy, Cloudy, and Foggy. Most of the dungeon may be Clear due to Swablu and Altaria which have the ability Cloud Nine. Pelipper also spawns on the higher floors, which can lead to more rain as it also has a weather manipulating ability, Drizzle.
The lower floors of Mt. Skylift feature mild, orange dirt tiles and orange walls. Various weather are present starting as early as Floor 1, and water tiles are common. Rooms tend to be small, with pathways often leading players to neighboring rooms or occasionally dead ends. From Floor 6 onwards, Clear weather may be prevalent due to Swablu regularly spawning.
At the mid floors, 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. Pathways often directly lead players to neighboring rooms as usual. Clear weather is still prevalent due to Swablu and Altaria regularly spawning on these floors.
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. The weather here is often Rainy due to Pelipper regularly spawning, otherwise it will remain clear as Altaria are still found on the upper floors. On Floor 30 is the Sealed Chamber containing a Light Box.

The main objective is to obtain HM Fly, and after that players usually return for the great amount of training that can be done at this dungeon for the large amount of experience it offers on higher floors. Several recruitable Pokémon are also found here. Old Amber is a hidden item here, that can be resurrected into Aerodactyl, meaning Aerodactyl can only be obtained via this dungeon.
- Aerodactyl was once a Pokémon that could be recruited directly from this dungeon, but was later removed with the introduction of Old Amber.
