  • "In the Pokémon Center next to Magenta Plaza" – Magenta Plaza is the northwestern plaza in the city, and the Pokémon Center is on the path towards Prism Tower. You'll find the Ticket by the changing room.
  • "In Centrico Plaza, in the tower illuminating the city" – In Prism Tower itself, on the ground floor. It's to the left of the guy who always introduces Pokémon Gyms.
  • "On Vernal Avenue, at a shop selling medicines" – Vernal Avenue is the southern-most road in Lumiose City. The shop in question is beside the rare gems shop.
  • "On North Boulevard, 1F, in a place where people rest" – In the Hotel Richisme, east of the Pokémon Center on the North Boulevard. The Ticket is sitting near one of the eastern pillars.
  • "On North Boulevard, 1F, in a place filled with art" – The last Ticket is in the museum, across the street from Lumiose City's northern Pokémon Center. You'll find it on the first floor of the east wing, beside a woman on a chair.

In order to trigger the Looker missions, you must first visit the North Boulevard in Lumiose City, both after completing the game and upgrading your Mega Ring. Fly or walk to the Pokémon Center and somebody should contact you and ask you to check out the Looker Bureau near Rouge Plaza.

Chapter 1

  • Make your way to Rouge Plaza, the northern-most plaza in Lumiose City. Across from a restaurant watched over by martial artists is a small home. Enter it to find Looker.
  • Agree to help Looker fight crime. What a nut.
  • Looker will now task you with hunting down five Looker Tickets, spread across Lumiose City. He says he's left "clues" as to their locations in his diary, but, ah, he's made it rather obvious. The locations are listed in the table to the right.
  • After finding all of the tickets, return to the Looker Bureau and agree again to be his partner.

Chapter 2

  • Next up: scoping out the darkened alleyways of Lumiose City. There are four you need to check out, and you have to start with the first.
  • South Boulevard, beside Restaurant Le Nah
  • The alleyway you're looking for is to the right of the restaurant, right on the eastern border between North and South Boulevard. Enter and you'll have to face off against several trainers. They're all really easy.

Notable mainly in that her Pokémon like using strong, self-damaging moves like Flare Blitz. Be cautious.

Schoolboy Macon

Spiritomb, level 55

Reward: $1,792

North Boulevard, across from the Galette Stand

  • The Stand is way in the north of Lumiose. Head east of the stand and look on the right side of the street for the alleyway.

North Boulevard, across from Lumiose Station

  • The Station is just up the road from Restaurant Le Nah, on the border with South Boulevard. The alleyway is across the street from the entrance.

North Boulevard, beside Cafe Triste

  • The Cafe is near the Galette Stand in North Boulevard as you head west. Keep going west to find the alleyway. Mimi is within; Dance to endear yourself to the thing.
  • After all is said and done, leave, head to North Boulevard, and wait for the inevitable call from Looker. Zip back to the Bureau.

Chapter 3

  • After the long cut scene, follow Looker to Lumiose Station. There are three Pokémon battles waiting.

Lumiose Gang Member Sedna

Mandibuzz, level 58

Reward: $4,640

High defense, low offense. Annoying, and not much else.

Lumiose Gang Member Eris

Pangoro, level 56

Bouffalant, level 56

Reward: $4,480

These guys are strong, but they can't stand up against a Fighting-type, or even Fighting-type moves.

Lumiose Gang Member Nix

Druddigon, level 56

Krookodile, level 56

Reward: $4,480

Probably the strongest of the lot, but given that you've beaten the Champion, still not that bad. Ice-type moves are great.

Chapter 4

  • Out to North Boulevard. Looker will call again. Back to the Bureau.
  • Head to Lumiose Museum after the cut scene. It's straight ahead, onto North Boulevard, and to the right.
  • Head up to the top floor. Talk to the museum director in front of the graffitied painting. Leave again after he's done talking.
  • You'll get two calls. Head back to the Bureau.
  • Talk to Looker and agree to his plan. Head for the alleyway across from the Galette Stand. There's a trainer waiting.

Suspicious Trainer "???"

Jellicent, level 58

Volcarona, level 60

Reward: $8,400

Strong Pokémon, but this is a bad combo for their side. Let Jellicent use Rain Dance before taking it down. You can thereafter use boosted Water-type moves to massacre Volcarona.

  • Off to Cafe Triste, just down the street.

Suspicious Child "???"

Whimsicott, level 57

Granbull, level 57

Mawile, level 57

Reward: $1,824

Not too difficult. Granbull's the most annoying since it can use Roar to screw with your lineup.

  • Then off to Lumiose Station. No fight here . . .
  • . . . you're just redirected to the final alley, in South Boulevard. Zip down the street to the south of the alley.

Suspicious Lady "???"

Persian, level 60

Reward: $960

Only a Persian? Meh.

Chapter 5

  • North Boulevard. Then back to the Bureau. Slightly repetitive . . . except this time you're facing a battle.

Butler Chalmers

Braviary, level 62

Reward: $4,960

Not that difficult. Whirlwind is irritating, but that's all. Avoid anything vulnerable to Flying-type moves.

  • Depart for Hotel Richissime, just down the street from the Bureau on North Boulevard. Head up to the top floor and look in the room to the left. Another battle awaits.

Pokémon Trainer Malva

Pyroar, level 63

Reward: $12,600

You beat this Pokémon as part of a team when facing the Elite Four. Surely you can wipe it out on its own.

Lysandre Labs

  • Make tracks for Cafe Lysandre, in Magenta Plaza. Make sure you're all healed up, then head inside. Choose "Hidden Floor" in the elevator.
  • Immediately after leaving the elevator, you'll be challenged to a battle.

Scientist Sonia

Elgyem, level 60

Klinklang, level 60

Reward: $4,320

Elgyem is a pain if it gets an attack off with an Sp. Atk. X activated, but you should easily be able to beat it with two turns. Klinklang is worse, but not by much.

  • Hop on the transport pad to your left, then get on the green pad beyond.
  • Take the second green pad in the next room.
  • Jump on a northbound pad. There's another trainer waiting.

Scientist Ernst

Weezing, level 61

Heliolisk, level 59

Reward: $4,248

Weezing is horrid since it can, and will, use Explosion to murder one of your Pokémon. Something with a high Defense score is ideal. Heliolisk isn't as bad, though Thunder can still do some damage if you're unlucky.

  • Take the pad to your left, then the next one to the south.
  • Walk east. There are three pads that are close together; jump on the central pad. Keep following it to find another trainer. She should be familiar.

Lumiose Gang Member Sedna

Mandibuzz, level 62

Reward: $4,960

High defense, low offense. Annoying, and not much else. In short, hasn't changed from last time.

  • Hop on the pad to the left of the trainer. Walk through the four pads once you stop and head southwest to face another familiar trainer.

Lumiose Gang Member Eris

Pangoro, level 60

Bouffalant, level 60

Reward: $4,800

Hey, you beat her last time. Mind that Bouffalant doesn't get off too many Swords Dances.

  • Hop on the green pad to the southwest of the trainer. Another trainer waits to the north.

Scientist Justus

Muk, level 62

Reward: $4,464

Muk is typically a pain, but this fight isn't too bad, even with an item deployed against you. Ground-type moves are king.

  • Hop on the green pad. Trainer ahead!

Lumiose Gang Member Nix

Druddigon, level 59

Krookodile, level 61

Reward: $4,880

Same as last time. Ice-type it up.

  • Follow Nix into the room behind. The Poké Balls in here sadly aren't items. Check the shelves for things to read. Check them all, then talk to Nix. You have to check them all or you won't be allowed to leave.
  • After Nix takes off, approach the next two people to show up. Battle!

Pokémon Trainer Essentia

Jellicent, level 64

Volcarona, level 66

Reward: $9, 240

Remember this team? It's slightly stronger than last time. Let Jellicent Rain Dance, take it down, and use a Water-type move to wipe out Volcarona.

  • Approach again. Second battle.

Pokémon Trainer Essentia

Whimsicott, level 63

Granbull, level 63

Mawile, level 63

Reward: $8,820


  • Approach once again.

Pokémon Trainer Essentia

Persian, level 66

Reward: $9,240

Best she got? Not yet.

  • One more time! (Talk to Looker for a heal.)

Pokémon Trainer Essentia

Crobat, level 68

Malamar, level 70

Reward: $9,800

  • Ah, finally some new Pokémon. Crobat is tricksy in negating stat boosts, but is otherwise not that bad. Malamar is fairly straightforward, if powerful, with Night Slash and Superpower. Slightly powerful, but not a huge problem.
  • All done. Head out to North Boulevard and you'll get another message. Back to the Bureau.
  • Watch the cut scene. Afterward, you'll run into Nix when you try to leave. He'll tell you to go to the Museum.
  • Go to the top floor of the Museum and talk to the museum director.
  • Outside you'll get a message.
  • Head over to Lysandre Cafe in Magenta Plaza.

All done! The Looker Missions are finished . . . except that you can now go battle Emma in the Looker Bureau.

Pokémon Trainer Essentia

Crobat, level 73

Malamar, level 75

Reward: $10,500

Stronger than last time, otherwise largely identical. Money's good, right?

I completed everything and it I'm not able to battle Emma.
