I'm in Blackthorn City's gym, trying to get to Claire. I've beaten everyone (except for the lady who's on the long strip to the right of the gym) and I can't get to Claire or the lady on the strip. Every hole/stair case leads me to either the beginning, or the guy right in the middle of the gym, and I've already beaten him.
Was I supposed to go to the Dragon's Den before the gym? Or, is there a certain way to get to Claire.
