"Let me ask you. Did you know? Ah, I should not be so coy. It was I who taught 'Wallace everything there is to know about Pokémon. Once, I had given up my position as the Gym Leader. In my place, I had entrusted Wallace with the gym. However, a compelling reason arose for me to make a comeback. Ah, but enough chatter. Let us begin our match, shall we? Please, you shall bear witness to our artistry. A grand illusion of water sculpted by Pokémon and myself!"
— Juan, Pokémon Emerald.

Juan (Japanese: アダン Adan) is the Gym Leader of the Hoenn Gym in Sootopolis City, where he replaced the former Gym Leader, Wallace, in Pokémon Emerald. Like Wallace he will award the player the Rain Badge if you defeat him. He is very popular with the citizens of Sootopolis City.

Juan is quite the celebrity type in Sootopolis, putting on shows with his Pokémon. He has many female fans, and is considered very dashing. In addition to being a Gym Leader, he is a former winner of the Grand Festival. He appeared in The Great Eight Fate and Eight Ain't Enough when he battled Ash, who won the Rain Badge after a tough battle. He has a butler, Sebastian, who also serves as the Sootopolis Gym assistant.

Juan also makes a cameo appearance in a flashback in Playing The Leveling Field!.
