Team Rocket Headquarters is the secret headquarters of the crime syndicate Team Rocket in Johto. It is located under the souvenir shop in Mahogany Town. Within the labyrinthine passages is a sinister transmission device that generates a strange radio pulse that encompasses the area surrounding Mahogany Town.
On the first floor of the headquarters, there is a multitude of Persian statues, which serve as security alarms. Once tripped, it will alert two Team Rocket Grunts, who will proceed to battle you. The device behind Scientist Gregg will switch off the security alarm system, thus making it safe to walk in front of the statues. On the staircase leading to B2F, there is a tile floor which serves as another hindering trap. Once a tile is stepped upon, a Pokémon will attack you.
On the second floor of the headquarters, Lance appears and heals your Pokémon for you. There is also the room leading to the generator, but the door is tightly shut. Once you return to B2F's locked room with the Murkrow, Team Rocket Executive Ariana intervenes with another Grunt, preparing to stop you from preventing their plans. However, Lance assists you in the battle, prompting Team Rocket to flee the headquarters after their defeat. After this, Lance tells you to either catch or defeat the six Electrode powering the generator. After the device is deactivated, Lance rewards you with HM 05, Whirlpool.
On the third floor of the headquarters, Lance informs the trainer that you require a password to access the boss' room. Once you defeat all the Grunts on this floor, they will reveal to you the password: RATICATETAIL. As you make your way to the boss' room, you find Giovanni sitting at a table beside a Murkrow. However, it turns out to be Rocket Executive Petrel assuming a disguise. After you challenge Petrel and defeat him, he informs you that the password is '"Hail Giovanni". However, he states that the door will not open unless he himself says it. As Petrel takes off, the Murkrow begins to imitate his voice as he said the password.
