Reyes' Journey, Part 63
Reyes made his way to the National Park, where the First Qualifying Rounds went underway for the Pokeathlon series! If Reyes wins in his heat for the competitions, then he would move on to the Second Qualifying Round, then the Semi-Finals, and hopefully the Finals. Reyes lost the Skill competition in the Preliminary, so Reyes had to compete in the Speed, Stamina, Jump, and Power courses. Lyra was also there competing with her Azumarill, Stantler, and Sunflora too!
Round 2, Course 1: Speed
Since Bagon evolved into Shelgon, his speed went down the drain, so a new team member needed to be replaced. Thankfully, Koffing was fast enough, and the team managed to win, moving on to the Second Qualifying Round!
Round 2, Course 2: Stamina
Reyes wanted to mix up his team so his other Pokemon can get a chance to compete. Thanks to Castform's speed in the relay race, and Exeggcutor in the ring push, Reyes qualified in this course as well!
Round 2, Course 3: Power
Seeing that Primeape wanted to compete, Reyes decided to use her in the Power Course, and she proved worthy. Reyes also won, moving on in the Power course!
Round 2, Course 4: Jump
Wailord was upset that he wasn't in the Stamina course, but Reyes gave him Aprijuice and let him compete in the Jump Course. The other competitors gave Reyes strange looks, but Wailord pulled his weight throughout the course, and Reyes was eligible to move on to the Second Qualifying Round!
As Reyes was leaving, preparing for a long training regimen, Cameron the Photographer wanted to take a picture of the Pokemon that made it to the Second Qualifying Round. Reyes agreed, but he said he needed to train some more, as he lost his first Gym Battle recently. That's when Cameron offered Reyes a chance to train to his heart's content. Cameron was called to Solaceon Town in Sinnoh to photograph the Ruins for a big headlining story, and Cameron offered Reyes to go with him. Reyes thought about it, and he decided- he'll put his Johto League Challenge on pause and go with Cameron to Sinnoh to train for the next Johto Gyms, and the Johto League!
