Juan made his debut in Pokémon Emerald after taking over the Sootopolis gym after Wallace left to become leader of the Pokémon league. Juan was reknown, as Wallace was, for his love of water Pokemon and thus took Wallace on as his pupil many years ago. Not only is Juan a respectable battler, he is also a skilled Pokémon Co-Ordinator.
