After leaving the Goldenrod Gym, I went into the flower shop next door. In there, I obtained the SquirtBottle to water the groovy tree on Route 36. I headed back out near National Park after that, but instead of going through the park again I went over to the Pokeathlon. When I arrived there, I met the owner, Magnus, and then went inside the dome. I went to the reception desk, only to be stopped by Whitney who gave me a jersey to wear during the events. I then decided to participate in the Jump Course using my Butterfree, Lickitung, and Vulpix. I hadn't done any of the Pokeathlon events in a while, so I did not do as well as I've done in the past. However, I was still able to place first in every event and win the whole course.
