In order to test his challengers and make sure that they are ready to compete in the [[Hoenn League]] {{pkmn|League Conference|Championships}}, Juan provides Trainers with a unique challenge: the Gym battle is divided into four rounds, with the first one being a [[Double Battle]] held in a large {{wp|swimming pool}}, while the other three rounds consist of one-on-one battles conducted in a battlefield that resembles a lake surrounded by land. Ash was able to overcome the obstacles imposed by Juan and, in ''[[AG111|Eight Ain't Enough]]'', he succeeded in defeating Juan's ace Pokémon, Milotic, thus winning the {{Badge|Rain}} and qualifying for the [[Ever Grande Conference]].
Juan reappeared in flashbacks in [[AG120]] and ''[[DP093|Playing The Leveling Field!]]''.
