You will obtain the Meteorite after battling Team Aqua’s/Magma’s boss atop Mt. Chimney, just off of Route 112. This battle is part of the main story, making the Meteorite an unmissable key item.

But in order to get the Meteorite, you must clear the following requirements:

  • Beat the Mauville Gym.
  • Rescue Professor Cozmo in Meteor Falls.

After rescuing Professor Cozmo, your rival will take you back to Mauville City. Then head over to the city’s north exit and make your way to Route 112 to get started.

Step 1: Head west from Route 112’s entrance, following the dirt path.

You’d simply head back to the path you came from, then take the gate going down that’s next to the cable car station. This will bring you to Lavaridge Town.
