You'll be challenged to a double battle by two Team Skull grunts. After you've beaten them, a mysterious man will let you into Po Town. Po Town is the head quarters of Team Skull. Head to the right and pick up the Max Repel from an item ball. Go back left and crawl through a hole in the fence to get past the barricade. You'll then need to defeat both grunts here in battle. You can heal up at the Pokemon Center too the right, but Team Skull grunts have taken it over so you'll have to pay 10 Poké Dollars.

Inside the Shady House, take the door on the far left to go back outside and pick up an Ice Stone. Go back in the building and take out the grunt in the left hallway.

Select the three correct passwords ("Beat Up", "Golisopod", and "Tapu Cocoa"), but when you're asked if you're sure, say "no". Go through the door and pick up the Escape Rope outside. You can also battle the grunt here if you want. Either way, enter in through the window. Go straight through the next door.
Inside, you'll finally meet up with Guzma. You'll battle him, of course. He has a Lv. 37 Goliosopod and a Lv. 36 Ariados. You shouldn't have much trouble beating him if your Pokemon are in the 38-40 level range and you've been battling most trainers up to this point. After you've defeated him, investigate the chest to get Buginium Z.
Backtrack and exit the building and a cutscene will play with the mysterious man who let you into Po Town. His name is Nanu and he is the uncle of Acerola.
