Juan (family name or surname is unknown) is the Hoenn Gym Leader of Sootopolis original timeline of WAAPT at the time of the Hoenn-2 Arc, succeeding Wallace who left the position to become the incumbent Hoenn Champion. In former times, he was the one who instructed and trained Wallace.
He is a man of art and style, and performs as a Coordinator and Trainer. He also leads some exhibitions with artistic performances of various kinds with Water-type Pokémon. He fancies himself a renaissance man and has the skills, the time and the elegance to back it up.
NPC Handlers include Venia Silente.
Juan's team is specially created in WAAPT to not be right out a copy of Wallace's team as it is in the anime, and at the same time to draw more from Pokémon lines having a hint of sportmanship and artistry to them.
A Starmie, nicknamed Acamar after the namesake star name meaning "end of the river". Likes to ode about its story of life in the depths of the sea. Moves known include Icy Wind, Shadow Ball, Rapid Spin and Cosmic Power.
