Training number three is hard. It has two powerful enemies you must kill to unlock the final challenge, which is a very hard boss. After killing the two enemies, you need to talk to Hojo again. This time he will warn you of the consequences, as it is a boss, which can be hard to beat at the start of the game. When you are ready to beat the final boss, talk to the scientist again, and he will start the simulation. Make sure to stack up on potions, as you will need plenty.
