A telecommunicator is located in the basement, originally used for Noel's Gym. However the player never has the chance to battle Noel here.
So you're at Dr. Connal's Orphanage, right? Several of the kids there are prodigious battlers-- they were referred to us and managed to beat out all of the competition, so they got their positions. Because of that, we actually installed an arena in the Orphanage's basement. I'm sure you'll see it shortly--
Huh? They're not accepting battles because the arena is being repaired? That's exactly how it was a few months ago... I thought I handled that. Dr. Connal might be lying. I'll have a talk to him about that.
Well, let's see. When you are allowed to fight them, Noel will probably be your first opponent from there. He trains Normal type Pokemon, but he was also allowed to use his ace, Clefable, as a wildcard. Be careful for that. It can get very big, very fast. Noel's other Pokemon are very well-rounded on their own, but they can't always take advantage of their surroundings. When you fight him, I suggest looking for a way to use the environment against him-- it should be pretty straight-forward given the type of arena it is.
