0. Version History                                                [HIS]
=======================================================================

Version 2.3 -> Edited high score records. Also made a small box thing
[04/17/10]     around the categories. (Courses, Medalist, Events)
               Added a Miscellaneous section. Add the info on how to
               activate the Switch button during Ring Drop. More details
               on Link Pokeathlon games. A bit of detail on the bonuses.
               Also a better explanation on the [LINK] section. And I've
               added more info on the Aprijuice section.

Version 2.2 -> Edited high score section. More teams added for the Sup.
[04/12/10]     Cup. Revised some Tip sections for some events. Sorry
               for not updating lately. I had a little break.

Version 2.1 -> Added a new section about the Supreme Cup and the teams.
[04/08/10]     Edited the high score section. Finally, I got info about
               the strength-boost on Block Smash. Filled the missing
               info about the extra awards in the Trust room. Completed
               the Data Card prices.

Version 1.9 -> More info added about ApriJuice. Changed "ApriShaker" to
[04/04/10]     "ApriBlender" cause "blender" is the name for the Eng.
               version. More teams added to the Opposing Teams section.

Version 1.8 -> Added the in-game names of the record rooms like the
[04/03/10]     Solidarity, Trust, Potential, and Friendship rooms.
               Corrected Goal Roll time limit. I've also added a note
               about the mysterious boost during the Block Smash game.
               (I've yet to figure out how this occurs.) Made a new
               section, the High-Score Records. Inserted some missing
               info of Data Cards. On each event, I've added in a small
               part that shows the stars that would be recommened in
               order to do well in that event. Edited the tips for
               some events. Added a new section about Bonus points. I
               got a small list of teams you go against with.

Version 1.1 -> Added in Circle Push, Snow Throw, and Pennant Capture
[03/31/10]     scoring. Also fixed some errors like wrong spellings. I
               fixed the spacing too..

Version 1.0 -> Created this guide. Added in info about the Pokeathlon
[03/30/10]     and the FAQ. Cheers for completing this guide! Some
               scoring info not available.

=======================================================================
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                                           [PKTHLON]
=======================================================================


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.

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.

[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.

=======================================================================
III. Courses and Events					    [CnE]
=======================================================================

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.

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

| 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:
100 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 move down. 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.

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 can "recover" in-between throwing snowballs
+ 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:
Ooh~ snow fun!! Try to "flick" all your Pokemon from left to right or 
vice-versa if your left handed. Alternate-throw will ensure you high 
points. Try to aim for the left or right team first, and when their 
Pokemon gets tired, try the other side. It's simply and fun. ^o^ By the 
way, you can tap your Pokemon several times to have them make a bigger

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.

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.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
[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 | [STAMINA]
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:
100 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                                       [PSC]
=======================================================================

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 becomed 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.

 X. Pokeathlon Stats                                            [STATS]
=======================================================================

To see your Pokemon's Pokeathlon Stats, check the summary page and turn
it to the right-most tab. You'll see your Pokemon's stats represented
with stars.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Default Stats                                              [DEF-STATS]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

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. 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
 Aprijuice                                                  [APRIJUICE]
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

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.

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.

Blue Apricorn    - Raises SKILL   - Dry        - May decrease JUMP
Green Apricorn   - Raises JUMP    - Bitter     - May decrease SPEED
Pink Apricorn    - Raises SPEED   - Sweet      - May decrease POWER
Red Apricorn     - Raises POWER   - Spicy      - May decrease STAMINA
Yellow Apricorn  - Raises STAMINA - Sour       - May decrease SKILL 
Black Apricorn   - No raise       - No flavor  - Strong to all
White Apricorn   - No raise       - No flavor  - Weak to all

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.

2. If the Pokemon gets moved to the PC, the modified stats will return
back to normal like it never drank ApriJuice.

2. If you tap the circle button on the shaker, you can see the Taste
option. With the Taste option, you can know its mildness and smoothness.
It also shows the flavor and how strong it is.

3. Flavor: To make an Aprijuice stronger with more flavor, you need to
blend Apricorns with an already-finished batch. If the ones added are
the same type with the juice, it will result into a stronger juice.
The flavor maxes out at 100.

4. 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 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 maxes out at 255.

5. 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.

6. 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.)

More experiments soon. 
Maybe a recipe section? Or an Apricorn locations section?

 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??
- You have to beat the Elite Four and the Champion. Then get your
National Dex from Professor Oak inside the house in Olivine where you
can ride the S.S. Aqua ship. Then go to the Pokeathlon 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!!
