I. Introduction                                                 [INTRO]

=======================================================================



Welcome to my first ever made guide! This is my first time making a 

guide, so please bear with me. o.o First of all, if there's anything 

missing in this guide, please e-mail me at gayle_chua@yahoo.com or 

simply comment in my YouTube channel on 

http://www.youtube.com/user/Ayenamae . 



Thank you. Also, state your username in GameFAQs so I can credit 

you properly.



Why I choose the Pokeathlon...well, I really like the Pokeathlon and 

mastered it. (Well, I just lack a few of the individual envents medals, 

but whatever.) I happen to search around to see if there's a guide about it, 

but there's none, so I figured that I'd volunteer to make one.



This intro part is just a prelude before the actual guide. So skip this 

part now-I got nothing else to say...for now.



=======================================================================

 II. The Pokeathlon                                             [PKTLN]

=======================================================================





The Pokeathlon is a new feature added into the remake of the original 

Gold and Silver, Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver. It's an olympic-like 

event wherein four teams consisting of three Pokemon compete against 

each other. The Pokeathlon Dome is located in the west of National Park in 

Johto, but you won't be able to access it until you have beaten Whitney, 

the gym leader of Goldenrod City.



There are a total of ten events, and there are five categories. The five 

would be the Speed, Power, Skill, Stamina, and Jump Courses. There are 

three events in each course, and it's up to the player to use the stylus 

to control their Pokemon and win. To check your Pokemon's Pokeathlon 

statistics, simply open their page summary, and turn to the last tab where 

you can the stats on the top. These stats can be modified with Aprijuice, 

Apricorns turned into juice. For more info about Aprijuice, go to the 

Aprijuice section.



When you unlock the Pokeathlon and first visit it, you'll be greeted by 

the Pokeathlon owner, Magnus. He'll show you around inside the dome, and 

the facilities. When you approach the middle counter, Whitney will appear 

and give you an outfit for the Pokeathlon. You're free to explore around 

the dome now.



Anyway, you can see here an ASCII (I think that's what it's called) map 

of the inside of the dome. Sorry if it's ugly-it's not easy to make it.

o---------------------------------------------------------------------o



Pokeathlon Sticks - 5 sticks on each side. There's a description thing in 

the front of each stick that talks about the ten events in of the Pokeathlon.



[Counter] - There are two ladies. The one on the left will be the one you 

will talk to if you want to join the Pokeathlon. The one on the right will 

sell you Data Cards in exchange for points.



[Counter2] - The counter to go if you want to play with your friends.



[Data PC] - It keeps records of your wins and losses. However, in order to 

actually view the data, you need to buy Data Cards.



[PC] - The usual PC in Pokecenters. Withdraw/Deposit Pokemon here.



[Prize Counter] - It's the counter for buying item prizes in exchange for 

points. The items change each day. There's a list in the Item Prizes section.



(Old Man) - There's an old man standing in front of a bunch of trees. If you 

speak to him, he'll tell you about his story if you say Yes. His dream was to 

reach 1,000 jumps in the Pokeathlon but did only 998 and couldn't finish, 

cause he had to retire. If you jump in the Pokeathlon 1,000 or more times, 

talk to him, and he'll give you a Rare Candy and be your fan.



(Guy) - He is like the old man but different story. Beat his record of 2000

tackles and he'll give you a reward.



[VM] - There's a vending machine on the upper right corner of the room. You 

can buy  the usual Soda Pop, Fresh Water, and Lemonade. You can pay either 

money or using your points. There's also a chance that it'll give 2 drinks

instead of one.



[Escalator1] - It's an escalator going up. It leads to a hall, and if you 

go up, you can go outside. You can see people watching the field. Also, 

on the right end side, you can see Magnus watching, but you can't talk to 

him. If you beat the Pokeathlon and unlock the Hall of Fame room, if you 

speak to the people, they will tell you that they're your fans, and they're 

cheering for you. The more you play, the more people that'll say that 

they're your fan. <3



[Escalator2] - Leads downstairs to the Record Hall. Once you got at least

one crown on each course (that would be at least 400 points per course),

you will unlock the Individual Pokemon room. If you got a a Pokemon that

won all categories, you will unlock you the Individual Events room. Defeat

the high score in each event, and you'll be able to reach the last room,

the Hall of Fame, where you and your Pokemon's statues a displayed.



                        :Outside of the Pokeathlon:



Lady w/ Pidgey - If you've done 1,000 dashes, talk to her and she'll

  give you a Rare Candy and be your fan.



=======================================================================

III. Courses and Events					        [CONEV]

=======================================================================



Talk to the lady in the counter and select the course you want. 

Afterwards, you will change your clothes to the jersey clothing, and 

you'll select 3 Pokemon for the course. This section will show the 

courses and the events plus tips and scoring. The description is by me, 

by the way.



You don't necessarily need to form a team with all the stats focused on. 

The more important stat would be the main stat focused throughout the 

course. Unless you want to reach a high score then go for it--make a 

perfect team. You can also form a team of three of the same kind of Pokemon.



You will win an extra 100 points if you win first place in the course.



=======================================================================



o----------------o

| Speed Course   | [SPEED]

o----------------o-------------------------------o

| Stats focused on: Speed, Skill, Stamina, Jump  |

| Events: [1] Hurdle Dash (Speed + Jump)         |

|         [2] Pennant Capture (Speed + Skill)    |

|         [3] Relay Run (Speed + Stamina)        |

o------------------------------------------------o





-----------------------------------------------------------------------

[1] Hurdle Dash - Speed Course

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Description:

Three of your Pokemon will race to the finish line. 

They must jump over the hurdles that will get in their way.



Categories: 

+ Speed: How fast your Pokemon runs

+ Jump: How far and high your Pokemon jumps



Time:

You can run as long until you reach the finish line or all the opponent 

Pokemon reaches the finish line before you.



Controls: 

Your Pokemon will automatically run as fast as it can. On the top screen, 

you can see the upcoming hurdles, so get ready. When the hurdle(s) is/are 

in front of your Pokemon, tap the Pokemon for it to jump. If you jump at 

the right time, your Pokemon will get a boost and will run faster. The more 

you do this jump-boost, the faster your Pokemon will run. To make a 

jump-boost, your Pokemon should jump "on" the hurdle. It may sound hard, 

but it's quite easy once you get the hang of it. 



Individual Event Scores to Beat:

First Score: 100.0 seconds

Second Score: 80.0 seconds



Tips:

Pick a 2-3 star Jump stat Pokemon and your fastest buddies. Yes, it may

seems a bit hard to have them all jump, but keep entering the same

course and the same Pokemon till you win. And also, relax.



Pokemon Recommended:

3 Pokemon with not the exact same speed.

2-3 stars for Jump.



Scoring: 

N/A. Faster and Shorter Time = More Points

Faster than 110.0 seconds should make you win first.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------

[2] Pennant Capture - Speed Course

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Description:

Collect as many flags as you can!

Bump onto other Pokemon to steal their flags!



Categories: 

+ Speed: How fast your Pokemon moves

+ Skill: How easier your Pokemon turns



Time:

60 seconds



Controls:

This is my least favorite event cause it's hard, and your opponents move 

like it's so easy. You simply point on your Pokemon and move the stylus 

on the screen to move and collect flags. You can collect a upto maximum of

9 flags at a time. Return to the starting point to add the flags onto your 

score, and your next Pokemon will be the next you will control.



Individual Event Scores to Beat:

First Score: 35 flags

Second Score: 50 flags



Tips:

The field and obstacles may change whenever you play Pennant Capture, so

it's not always the same, but once you get the hang of it, you'll recognize

the field right away.



Try to collect flags clockwise or counterclockwise. Once you make a round,

go back to the starting point. Going back to the areas where you missed

collecting the flags will waste time, and the opponent will likely get it

once you go back.



Pokemon Recommended:

High speed and skill.



Scoring:

Your score multiplied by 3 = your points.

More than 30-35 flags should make you first place.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------

[3] Relay Run - Speed Course

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Description:

Run as many laps as you can!

Switch your Pokemon before/when it gets tired.



Categories: 

+ Speed: How fast your Pokemon runs

+ Stamina: How much your Pokemon can keep up



Time:

90 seconds



Controls:

It's a race, so you "slash" continuously on the screen to make your 

Pokemon run. On the upper left of the screen is the switch button. When 

your Pokemon begins to sweat, you must switch it immediately to the 

next or else it won't run much and will get dizzy if bumped by other

Pokemon.



Individual Event Scores to Beat:

First Score: 12.0 Laps

Second Scores: 16.0 Laps



Tips:

On your first lap, try to remember the layout of the track, so you'll

remember and know also when to move up or down. If you run on the pebbles,

you'll move slower. If you bump the big rocks, you'll bounce back.

For me, I have my left thumb ready on the switch button, so when my Pokemon

gets tired, it will get switched immediately without wasting milliseconds.

If you want, you can tilt your DS sideward, so you'll only "slash" upwards.

Your choice.



Pokemon Recommended:

High Speed and Stamina.

4-5 stars for both Speed and Stamina for records.



Scoring:

The number of laps you make multiplied by 10 is your points.

Simpler Words: Remove decimal point = your points.



More than 12.0 laps should make you first place. 

Your opponents are slow anyway.



=======================================================================



o----------------o

| Power Course   | [POWER]

o----------------o-------------------------------o

| Stats focused on: Power, Stamina, Speed, Skill |

| Events: [1] Block Smash (Power + Stamina)      |

|         [2] Circle Push (Power + Speed)        |

|         [3] Goal Roll (Power + Skill)          |

o------------------------------------------------o



-----------------------------------------------------------------------

[1] Block Smash - Power Course

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Description:

SMASH! SMASH! SMASH!

Destroy as many blocks as you can!



Categories: 

+ Power: Your Pokemon's smashing strength

+ Stamina: How long your Pokemon can keep smashing



Time:

30 seconds



Controls:

Simply rapidly tap on the blocks to have your Pokemon smash them. After 

10 blocks, your blocks will be refilled. On the upper left of the screen 

is the switch button, which you should tap if you're Pokemon begins to 

sweat and get tired.



Individual Event Scores to Beat:

First Score: 80 blocks

Second Score: 130 blocks



Tips:

Pick the Pokemon with high Power and Stamina. Also, remember how many 

block sets your Pokemon can smash before it gets tired. The best time to 

switch is when the blocks are begin refilled. For me, I put my left thumb 

stand-by on the switch button, so I get smashin' right away when your 

Pokemon gets switched.



How to trigger strength-boost: There are tiny cracks on the blocks. When

you smash that crack, you get a strength-boost. (A fist icon shows) Do it

in a chain, and you'll get a blue ring, and a bigger chain= red ring.



Pokemon Recommended:

High stars for Power and Stamina. That's...it.

Bolded stars would be great too.



Scoring:

The number of blocks you smashed equals to your score.



Smash as much as you can to get first place. 

Different opponents' team strength is different.



----------------------------------------------------------------------- 

[2] Circle Push - Power Course

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Description:

Run into the circle!

Push your opponents off the circle!



Categories: 

+ Power: Pushing strength

+ Speed: How fast your Pokemon moves around



Time:

I'm guessing 15~ seconds. There's a timer around the rectangle field.



Controls:

Touch your Pokemon and move it. All your Pokemon are present, so getting 

them in the circle and pushing others can be hard. You can push your

opponents off the rectangle field by the way. The smaller the circle, 

the more points.



Individual Event Scores to Beat:

First Score: 40 points

Second Score: 60 points



Tips:

Try to focus on where your Pokemon are located, and try to have them 

close to each other. Have them in a triangle position if you're going 

to fit them all in the 5-point circle. If there are multiple circles, 

aim for the one that gives the most points. If there are two

same-scoring circles, go for the one with lesser Pokemon crowding on it.



Pokemon Recommended:

Don't use giant-size Pokemon. They take up more space, and may be hard

to get into the 5p Circle. You may want to consider 3 star Speed, so

you can move around faster. If your style is pushing other Pokemon off

the circle, 2-3 stars Power.



Scoring:

Your score multiplied by 3 = Your points

Reach higher than 35-40 points to win first place.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------

[3] Goal Roll - Power Course

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Description:

Shoot the ball in the opponents' net to gain a point!

Shoot the ball in your net and you'll lose a point!



Categories: 

+ Power: How strong the impact when you push the ball

+ Skill: How far your ball gets pushed



Time:

90 seconds.



Controls:

Touch your Pokemon and move it. Just flick your Pokemon onto the ball, 

and it'll hit the ball. Shoot the ball into others' goals. All your 

Pokemon are present, and so are the opposing teams. It's a soccer-like 

match, but harder. Nine Pokemon will be hogging on the ball and pushing 

it around. @.@



Individual Event Scores to Beat:

First Score: 3 points

Second Score: 9 points



Tips:

Anyway, like what the tip guy in the game said, have one Pokemon guard

your goal, so if a ball reaches near your net, you can hit it somewhere

else to defend your goal. Your other two Pokemon would be the hitters.

One could hit the ball, and the other can support hitting it.

(Ex: Poke-A failed to shoot the ball into the goal. Poke-B is nearby

and hits the ball to shoot it into the goal.) Or if you want, Poke-A can

be on the center of the field while Poke-B on the goal you want to shoot

the ball into. Why the center? Cause that's usually where the ball spawns.

Remember, don't panic.



Pokemon Recommended:

A Pokemon with good Power and Skill.



Scoring:

Normal Ball = +1 to shooter; -1 to the team's goal that got hit

Golden Ball = +2 to shooter; -1 to the team's goal that got hit

N/A

If you got a good score, the other teams would have 

0 points--making you the winner.

[1] Snow Throw - Skill Course

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Description:

SNOWBALL FIGHT!

Hiyah!!



Categories: 

+ Skill: How fast your Pokemon throws a snowball

+ Power: How strong your snowball throw is



Time:

60 seconds



Controls:

Flick your Pokemon to have them throw a snowball. If your flick is 

accurate, you'll hit the opponent's Pokemon, gaining you a point. If

your Pokemon gets hit, it will stop temporarily from throwing another

snowball. If a Pokemon gets continually hit, then the Pokemon will be

dizzy and stop moving/throwing.



Individual Event Scores to Beat:

First Score: 30 points

Second Score: 55 points



Tips:

Simple, throw snowballs alternately 1-2-3 repeatly at the right side

if you're right-handed and on the left side if you're left-handed.

Even if the Pokemon are dizzy, you can still hit 'em and win points.

Also, it's better to keep throwing snowballs instead of trying to

make them bigger before throwing.



Pokemon Recommended:

Any Pokemon with good Skill & Power stat or balanced.



Scoring:

Your score multiplied by 3 = your points.

Reach higher than 30-40 points to win first place.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------

[2] Goal Roll - Skill Course

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Description:

Shoot the ball in the opponents' net to gain a point!

Shoot the ball in your net and you'll lose a point!



Categories: 

+ Skill: How far your ball gets pushed

+ Power: How strong the impact when you push the ball



Time:

90 seconds.



Controls:

Touch your Pokemon and move it. Just flick your Pokemon onto the ball, 

and it'll hit the ball. Shoot the ball into others' goals. All your 

Pokemon are present, and so are the opposing teams. It's a soccer-like 

match, but harder. Nine Pokemon will be hogging on the ball and pushing 

it around. @.@



Individual Event Scores to Beat:

First Score: 3 points

Second Score: 9 points



Tips:

Anyway, like what the tip guy in the game said, have one Pokemon guard

your goal, so if a ball reaches near your net, you can hit it somewhere

else to defend your goal. Your other two Pokemon would be the hitters.

One could hit the ball, and the other can support hitting it.

(Ex: Poke-A failed to shoot the ball into the goal. Poke-B is nearby

and hits the ball to shoot it into the goal.) Or if you want, Poke-A can

be on the center of the field while Poke-B on the goal you want to shoot

the ball into. Why the center? Cause that's usually where the ball spawns.

Remember, don't panic.



Pokemon Recommended:

A Pokemon with good Power and Skill.



Scoring:

Normal Ball = +1 to shooter; -1 to the team's goal that got hit

Golden Ball = +2 to shooter; -1 to the team's goal that got hit

Also, scores cannot high to the negatives, so the lowest is 0.

If you got a good score, the other teams would have 

0 points--making you the winner.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------

[3] Pennant Capture - Skill Course

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Description:

Collect as many flags as you can!

Bump onto other Pokemon to steal their flags!



Categories: 

+ Skill: How easier your Pokemon turns

+ Speed: How fast your Pokemon moves



Time:

60 seconds



Controls:

This is my least favorite event cause it's hard, and your opponents move 

like it's so easy. You simply point on your Pokemon and move the stylus 

on the screen to move and collect flags. You can collect a maximum of 9 

flags at a time. Return to the starting point to add the flags onto your 

score, and your next Pokemon will be the next you will control.



Individual Event Scores to Beat:

First Score: 35 flags

Second Score: 50 flags



Tips:

The field and obstacles may change whenever you play Pennant Capture, so

it's not always the same, but once you get the hang of it, you'll recognize

the field right away.



Try to collect flags clockwise or counterclockwise. Once you make a round,

go back to the starting point. Going back to the areas where you missed

collecting the flags will waste time, and the opponent will likely get it

once you go back.



Pokemon Recommended:

High speed and skill.



Scoring:

Your score multiplied by 3 = your points.

More than 30 flags should make you first place.

| Stamina Course | [STMNA]

o----------------o-------------------------------o

| Stats focused on: Stamina, Power, Speed 	 |

| Events: [1] Ring Drop (Stamina + Power)        |

|         [2] Relay Run (Stamina + Speed)        |

|         [3] Block Smash (Stamina + Power)      |

o------------------------------------------------o



-----------------------------------------------------------------------

[1] Ring Drop - Stamina Course

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Description:

Sumo wrestling fight, Pokemon style!



Categories: 

+ Stamina: How much your Pokemon can keep fighting

+ Power: How strong your Pokemon's "push"



Time:

60 seconds



Controls:

Simple. Flick your Pokemon to have them hit other Pokemon. Drag the

stylus to move them. Push them off the ring to gain points. Tap your

Pokemon to have it jump. If it lands on top of a Pokemon, then that

Pokemon on the ground will get smooshed and will get blasted off the

ring.



Individual Event Scores to Beat:

First Score: 70 points

Second Scores: 100 points



Tips:

Try to have your Pokemon hit the others will full power. If you over-hit, 

you'll fall off the ring with your opponent and therefore lose points.

I don't usually have my Pokemon jump, but if your Pokemon is surrounded, 

you might as well jump and blast your opponents off the ring. Also, if

your Pokemon needs to be switched, go to your corner of the field.



Pokemon Recommended:

I pick the Pokemon with high Power and Stamina for high scores.



Scoring:

Multiply your score by 1.5= your points. (Max. is 200 points)

Note that if your opponents fall off the ring, they'll lose points.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------

[2] Relay Run - Stamina Course

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Description:

Run as many laps as you can!

Switch your Pokemon before/when it gets tired.



Categories: 

+ Stamina: How much your Pokemon can keep up

+ Speed: How fast your Pokemon runs



Time:

90 seconds



Controls:

It's a race, so you "slash" continuously on the screen to make your 

Pokemon run. On the upper left of the screen is the switch button. When 

your Pokemon begins to sweat, you must switch it immediately to the 

next or else it won't run much and will get dizzy if bumped by other Pokemon.



Individual Event Scores to Beat:

First Score: 12.0 Laps

Second Scores: 16.0 Laps



Tips:

On your first lap, try to remember the layout of the track, so you'll

remember and know also when to move up or down. If you run on the pebbles,

you'll move slower. If you bump the big rocks, you'll bounce back.

For me, I have my left thumb ready on the switch button, so when my Pokemon

gets tired, it will get switched immediately without wasting milliseconds.



Pokemon Recommended:

High Speed and Stamina.

5 stars for both Speed and Stamina for records.



Scoring:

The number of laps you make multiplied by 10 is your points.

Simpler Words: Remove decimal point = your points.

More than 12.0 laps should make you first place.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------

[3] Block Smash - Stamina Course

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Description:

SMASH! SMASH! SMASH!

Destroy as many blocks as you can!



Categories: 

+ Stamina: How long your Pokemon can keep smashing

+ Power: Your Pokemon's smashing strength



Time:

30 seconds



Controls:

Simply rapidly tap on the blocks to have your Pokemon smash them. After 

10 blocks, your blocks will be refilled. On the upper left of the screen 

is the switch button, which you should tap if you're Pokemon begins to 

sweat and get tired.



Individual Event Scores to Beat:

First Score: 80 blocks

Second Score: 130 blocks



Tips:

Pick the Pokemon with high Power and Stamina. Also, remember how many 

block sets your Pokemon can smash before it gets tired. The best time to 

switch is when the blocks are begin refilled. For me, I put my left thumb 

stand-by on the switch button, so I get smashin' right away when your 

Pokemon gets switched.



How to trigger strength-boost: There are tiny cracks on the blocks. When

you smash that crack, you get a strength-boost. (A fist icon shows) Do it

in a chain, and you'll get a blue ring, and a bigger chain= red ring.



Pokemon Recommended:

High stars for Power and Stamina. That's...it.

Bolded stars would be good too.



Scoring:

The number of blocks you smashed equals to your score.



Smash as much as you can to get first place. 

Different opponents' team strength is different.



Note: I have also noticed the mysterious blue/red-ish ring that surrounds

your Pokemon. For the mean time, I have no idea yet why this happens, but

it is like a strength-boost. I'm checking out on how and when this happens.

If you got an idea on how to trigger this, please let me know. Thanks!

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

[1] Lamp Jump - Jump Course

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Description:

Pretty lights~

Jump to reach and turn them off!



Categories: 

+ Jump - How high your Pokemon can jump

+ Skill - The ability to jump sideward



Time:

60 seconds



Controls:

Make your Pokemon bounce upward by pulling them down with the stylus. 

Pull down sidewards and the Pokemon will jump sideward. However, if your 

Pokemon hits on your other Pokemon, the two (or three) Pokemon will get 

dizzy for a short while. The more lights you hit, the more points. Try 

to aim a chain in hitting the lights cause the score goes higher upto 

a max. of 5pts/light.



Individual Event Scores to Beat:

First Score: 350 points

Second Scores: 500 points



Tips:

Have a Pokemon with high jumping skill. Jump is more important than Skill,

but if you got a Pokemon with good stars on both, then great! You can't

move your Pokemon, so you can only make them jump. If that's the case, then

have one jump up and the other left/right. Try to bounce as far as you can

while hitting many lights. You can "move" your Pokemon by making them jump

low while waiting for the lights to lit up again.



Pokemon Recommended:

Jump: 3-5 stars

Skill: 3-5 stars



Scoring:

N/A. Try to have more than 360 points. 

Your opponents will have a score of 300-350ish.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------

[2] Disc Catch - Jump Course

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Description:

Frisbee catch!



Categories: 

+ Jump: How high your Pokemon can jump/easily catch the frisbee

+ Power: How strong your Pokemon can push other Pokemon



Time:

60 seconds



Controls:

Drag the stylus around to have your Pokemon move around. Tap them to make

them jump. Your goal is to catch as many Frisbees/saucers as you can

within the time given. The lower on the rectangle you jump and catch the

frisbee, the more points you get.



Individual Event Scores to Beat:

First Score: 40 points

Second Scores: 70 points



Tips:

I have one Pokemon stand-by on the lower left corner in the 5-point zone.

The other two will be on random areas of the board. You can push your 

opponents off the board if you want. I stay on the 3-point and 5-point zone.



Pokemon Recommended:

You can go for a balanced team if you want.

Also, some Pokemon in front are annoying sometimes, so your Pokemon with

good Power can push them off the ring.



Scoring:

N/A. Try to have more than 45 points. 

If you jump a lot and catch most of the frisbees, your opponents will not 

get much of a score.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------

[3] Hurdle Dash - Jump Course

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Description:

Three of your Pokemon will race to the finish line. 

They must jump over the hurdles that will get in their way.



Categories: 

+ Jump: How far and high your Pokemon jumps

+ Speed: How fast your Pokemon runs



Time:

You can run as long until you reach the finish line or all the opponent 

Pokemon reaches the finish line before you.



Controls: 

Your Pokemon will automatically run as fast as it can. On the top screen, 

you can see the upcoming hurdles, so get ready. When the hurdle(s) is/are 

in front of your Pokemon, tap the Pokemon for it to jump. If you jump at 

the right time, your Pokemon will get a boost and will run faster. The more 

you do this jump-boost, the faster your Pokemon will run. To make a 

jump-boost, your Pokemon should jump "on" the hurdle. It may sound hard, 

but it's quite easy once you get the hang of it. 



Individual Event Scores to Beat:

First Score: 100.0 seconds

Second Score: 80.0 seconds



Tips:

Pick a 2-3 star Jump stat Pokemon and your fastest buddies. Yes, it may

seems a bit hard to have them all jump, but keep entering the same

course and the same Pokemon till you win. And also, relax.



Pokemon Recommended:

3 Pokemon with not the exact same speed.

2-3 stars for Jump.



Scoring: 

N/A. Faster and Shorter Time = More Points

Faster than 110.0 seconds should make you win first.



=======================================================================

 IV. Pokeathlon Supreme Cup                                     [PSCUP]

=======================================================================



After you beat the Elite Four and got the National Dex, you'll be able

to participate in the Supreme Cup. If you've noticed, there's lady on

the left of the main counter this time. Not only that, now that you got

the National Dex, you've unlocked more items to buy at the Pokeathlon

Shop! Now here's some changes:



[1] Better Teams

    There are new teams in the Supreme Cup. You can even meet a Gym

    Leader!



[2] More 1st-place Bonus Points

    Instead of 100 extra points, you get 300 points instead if you win

    first place in the course!



I'll fill you guys in for the scores that would be good enough to reach

1st place in that event, since the other teams are more challenging.

Some events have the word "Depends on your Performance" because you will

have to do well so you'll have a high score while the rest get terrible

scores like 0.



Speed Course:   Hurdle Dash     - Faster than 110.0

                Pennant Capture - 32-35+ points

                Relay Run       - At least 12-13 laps



Power Course:   Block Smash     - Higher than 100 to be sure

                Circle Push     - 40+ points

                Goal Roll       - This depends on your performance.



Skill Course:   Snow Throw      - 50+ points

                Goal Roll       - This depends on your performance.

                Pennant Capture - 32-35+ points



Stamina Course: Ring Drop       - Depends on your performance.

                                  200 is the max. score.

                Relay Run       - At least 12-13 laps

                Block Smash     - Higher than 100 to be sure



Jump Course:    Lamp Jump       - Higher than 400

                Disc Catch      - Depends on your performance.

                Hurdle Dash     - Faster than 110.0



Apparently in my experience, the new teams are just "intimidating"

cause their teams consist of better Pokemon. Their performance is

just a bit better than the normal cup...



=======================================================================

 V. Bonus Points                                                [BONUS]

=======================================================================



After each course, before announcing the 1st-place winner, there would

be bonus points on the scoring. Some bonuses, even though it says ____

the most,may apply to more than one Pokemon.



Bonuses:

Challenge Bonus - From what I've observed, the better Pokemon your

bring, the lesser effort bonus you get... I guess having better Pokemon

means you exert less effort cause it's easier?



Individual Pokemon Bonus:

(1) Scored the Most

(2) Jumped the Most

(3) No-Miss Bonus - The Pokemon that...

                    \_ Never fall off the stage in Ring Drop/Disc Catch.

                    \_ Never hit a hurdle at Hurdle Dash.

                    \_ Never become confused.

(4) Points Leader - The Pokemon that performed the best in the events.

(5) Dashed the Most

(6) Hit the Most

(7) Failed the Most - The Pokemon that...

                      \_ Falls of the stage in RingD./DiscC. the most.

                      \_ Hits a hurdle at Hurdle Dash the most.

                      \_ Gets confused the most.



Every course has the challenge bonus.



=======================================================================

=======================================================================



Here is a list of teams and their Pokemon you will face with during the

Pokeathlon courses. Just by looking at their motto or Pokemon, you can

know what stat they're good at.

accomplishments you have in the Pokeathlon.

All Pokemon have different stats. You can alter the stats with ApriJuice.

Note: Pokemon that have different forms have different stats.



The whole thing is hard to list down, Serebii has an organized list:

http://serebii.net/heartgoldsoulsilver/pokeathlon-pkmn.shtml



But know this, not all Pokemon have the same exact stats even if they're

the same kind of Pokemon. It has something to do with natures.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



If you're unhappy of your Pokemon's stats, there's a way to modify it

by letting it drink Aprijuice, Apricorns turned into juice. To know

more about Aprijuice, check the [APRIJ] section.



=======================================================================

 XI. Aprijuice                                                  [APRIJ]

=======================================================================



What is it? It's a drink made with Apricorns. The earliest time you can

make them is after the Goldenrod City Gym which is also the time when

you gain access to the Pokeathlon.



To obtain ApriJuice, there are two ways-either buy it and make it by

yourself. But in order to make ApriJuice yourself, you need an item called

an Apricorn Blender. This "item" is an add-on for your Apricorn Case.

Where to get it? It's really simple. Just outside the Pokeathlon dome, on

theleft, there's a guy selling something. Go to the tube things, and the

guy will introduce to you about the ApriJuice. It can modify a Pokemon's

Pokeathlon stats to raise it. But there's a catch though, if a stat goes

up,there's a chance that there will be a stat that will go down. For

instance,you feed a Pokemon a Speed Juice, the Power stat of the Pokemon

might decrease, but the Speed stat will increase.



-----------------------------------------------------------------------

 Aprijuice Making                                               [AJMAK]

-----------------------------------------------------------------------



Now, time to make ApriJuice! Now that you got the add-on on your ApriCase,

open your items menu and open your ApriCase. There's a blender now on the

empty space before. You simply drag Apricorns to the blender then move or

cycle around for about 100 steps. Check it again, and it will be drinkable.

Let your Pokemon drink it by clicking on it, selecting a Pokemon, and let

it drink the ApriJuice. If you check out the tube things, the guy will tell

you what kind of juice is it. A drink costs 100-150 PokeMoney, and the

type of juice he sells each day changes.



Oh, but you're wondering, what if I make my own ApriJuice? Which Apricorn

to use? Here is a small list of what apricorns raise what stat and its

flavor. Flavor is like Pokeblocks or Poffins in other games. Certain

natures of Pokemon prefer other flavors.



               o----------o----------o----------o----------o----------o

               |  Power   | Stamina  |   Skill  |  Speed   |   Jump   |

o--------------o----------o----------o----------o----------o----------o

|   Apricorn   |  Spicy   |  Sour    |   Dry    |  Bitter  |   Sweet  |

| Ylw Apricorn |  ------  |  Strong  |   Weak   |  ------  |  ------  |

| Blu Apriconn |  ------  |  ------  |  Strong  |   Weak   |  ------  |

| Grn Apricorn |  ------  |  ------  |  ------  |  Strong  |   Weak   |

| Pnk Apricorn |   Weak   |  ------  |  ------  |  ------  |  Strong  |

o--------------o----------o----------o----------o----------o----------o

| Wht Apricorn |   Weak   |   Weak   |   Weak   |   Weak   |   Weak   |

| Blk Apricorn |  Strong  |  Strong  |  Strong  |  Strong  |  Strong  |

o--------------o----------o----------o----------o----------o----------o



Here are some things you need to know about ApriJuice:

1. A max of five apricorns can be placed inside at a time. Once it gets

mixed, you can put more. Five apricorns normally equals one star in

that stat.



2. If the Pokemon gets moved to the PC, the modified stats will return

back to normal like it never drank ApriJuice.



3. If you tap the circle button on the shaker, you can see the Taste

option. With the Taste option, you can know the flavor and how strong

it is. On the top screen, it shows the Flavor and Mildness values.

 |

 \_ Flavor: More flavor would mean greater effect. To make an Aprijuice     stronger with more flavor, you need to put more Apricorns on a blended

 batch. If the ones added are the same type with the juice, it will

 result into a stronger juice. The Flavor value maxes out at 100.

 |

 \_ Mildness: The milder the apricorn is, the less negative effects.

 To make it milder, you just leave the juice in the blender for a while.

 More walking/cycling would mean a milder drink. Also, if a day passes,

 the juice will be milder too. If you add more Apricorns to increase the

 flavor, the mildness will reset to 0. Mildness value maxes out at 255.



4. A drink may increase or decrease more than one stat. Drink effects

do not stack, so the new drink effects replaces the old drink's effects.

However, if a drink has max. value on mildness, there's no negative

effects. It appears that only two stats can be raised at a time.



5. If you connect to a friend, your Aprijuice may be sold outside the

dome of your friend's. (So the Aprijuice may give more effects than

the default drinks being sold assuming your friend makes good drinks.)



6. For raising two stats, the order they are added matters. The right

order will give a more potent aprijuice (high flavor & more stars).

All apricorns of one color should be added before switching to

another color. For uneven recipes, the "primary" flavor should be

added first. 



7. Pokemon seem to have a stat that they naturally prefer to raise,

even without nature factoring in. Black apricorns tend to raise this

stat, and mixes which raise that stat may get an extra star.



NOTE: A Pokemon jump stat can't be lowered more than 2 stars.

      Only Diglett/Dugtrio have one star, which means they can't jump.

The main and only ingredient of Aprijuice is of course, Apricorns. You

need to have the Apricorn Box in order to collect Apricorns. Get it by

talking to a man inside a house on Route 30.



Now open your Pokegear and begin marking the locations with the Apricorn

symbol. That way, you can collect them with ease.

Now you're staring at your Apricorn Box and wondering which apicorns to

add. I have here some "recipes" to help you along. Any recipe submissions

welcomed, but must be detailed. ;)



Collect apricorns while making aprijuice! Also, make sure to read the

"Aprijuice Making" [AJMAK] section to understand the rules and some

tips before making.



Like, I'm not playing the game that much anymore, so I just leave the

Aprijuice there for days--raising the Mildness.



If you got any ideas, please use the form here. Diffi means difficulty

on whether making that juice is hard or not.

 XII. Frequently Asked Questions                                  [FAQ]

=======================================================================



Oh, boy I'm almost done with this guide. Here are some answers for

questions that get asked a lot of times. Here goes.



1. I can't go to the Pokeathlon. How come?

- Have you defeated Whitney and got the badge from her? Also, you don't

need to encounter Sudowoodo to unlock the Pokeathlon. The Pokeathlon is

located west of National Park by the way.



2. Can I enter the same kind of Pokemon in the courses?

- Yes, you can enter the exact same Pokemon even if you won a medal

already for that course. Yes, you can enter three of the same kind of

Pokemon if you want.



3. My Pokemon lost its medals!

- If your Pokemon has evolved into a Pokemon specie that has never entered

the Pokeathlon, its medals will be 0/5. However, if the form before it has

obtained all the medals, that Pokemon specie will still be a medalist

Pokemon. Keep in mind that the same kind of Pokemon share the same amount

of medals.



4. What Pokemon has the best default stat?

- I'd say Arceus and/or other legendaries.

- But if you're a true Pokeathlete, go for normal pkmn or Aprijuice. ;)



5. What do data cards do?

- They give you access to the Data PC that shows the records of your

Pokeathlon wins/losses and other info.



6. What if I feed a Pokemon ApriJuice that it doesn't like?

- Welllll, I don't know the answer to that question yet. My guess is that

the stat raise will be less or no effect.



7. I got a good strategy for the Pokeathlon!

- I welcome strategies. :) Please e-mail me or comment at my YouTube

channel and I'll be sure to credit you.



8. How do I unlock the Supreme Cup??

- Simply unlock the Friendship Room. Then go back to the first floor

and you'll see that there's a lady on the left on the main counter.

 XIII. Miscellaneous                                             [MISC]

=======================================================================



It's a section for entertainment. Apparently, this section notes some

interesting info.



1. Diglett and Dugtrio - Everyone knows they stick on the ground. But

   what happens if they enter in events that need jumping? Well, they

   don't jump at all. In Hurdle Dash, they burrow below and resurface,

   so they do not get any speed-boost. In other events in need of them

   jumping, they simply stick on the ground. Tricky medalists~



2. Maylene - Sinnoh Gym Leader! Too bad she's like the only one to join

   in the Pokeathlon. You know, if you look somewhere in Celadon City,

   particularly in the house on the lower right side of the city, you'll

   see her there, joining the Eatathon (eating) Contest.



3. The largest sized Pokemon is..... I'm guessing Wailord? Has someone

   tried to check? (And by size, I mean the size of the Pokemon in the

   Pokeathlon or the one following you.)



4. Primo (Maximo's brother), is in Violet City's Poke-center. He'll give

   you secret wallpapers and eggs if you tell him some phrases. Go to

   this site, enter your Trainer ID, and viola!



   Go: http://www.filb.de/games/tools/aikotoba

   Go nowwww, there's a Ho-oh/Lugia wallpaper and many more!!
