After Mt. Thunder, Pokemon Square becomes inaccessible

After defeating Zapdos at Mt. Thunder and visiting Xatu in Great Canyon, you'll become temporarily unable to visit Pokemon Square. This will prevent you from such actions as leveling up by completing Jobs or by training at the Makuhita Dojo, as well as buying and selling Items, so be sure to do these tasks before talking to Whiscash. Raising your level in advance will make sure you're able to complete the subsequent Missions without a problem.
Leveling Up at Makuhita Dojo

Make sure to have used all of your Dojo Tickets before going to Great Canyon because it is not efficient to grind levels in Rock Path or Ice Path since there are no rescue jobs available there.

Don't worry as Great Canyon will be an easy dungeon right after the grueling Mt. Thunder. Just bring Apples, Oran Berries, Max Ethers and maybe a Reviver Seed or Tiny Reviver Seed

Best Pokemon to Use

The Pokemon in Great Canyon. Those Pokemon are weak against Fire and Flying. This is where Cyndaquil, Charmander, Torchic and Spearow gets useful. They can easily deal with these Pokemon. If you also have the Aerial Ace TM, and you have on a Pokemon with another move linked to it, that should be enough to knock out these Pokemon in a turn.

If you see a Houndoom early on, try to battle it. You might be able to get it to fight for you in the dungeon. If you have Ravaged Field unlocked as a friend camp, it can help you in your battles next time. It is very powerful in dungeons like Uproar Forest. Also, it can Mega Evolve too!
