In the anime
Juan made his debut appearance in the {{pkmn|anime}} in ''[[AG110|The Great Eight Fate!]]'', in which he was seen putting on a show with his {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} at the inauguration of an art piece in [[Sootopolis City]]. Impressed by how Juan's Pokémon took the stage, {{an|May}} commented that Juan could be a great {{pkmn|Coordinator}} and that she had never seen someone using {{type|Water}} [[Move|attacks]] in such a beautiful and creative manner. Following his water show, {{TRT}} appeared to try to steal Juan's Pokémon. Juan initially mistook them for artists, but when {{Ash}} and {{ashfr}} told him that they were a trio of thieves, he easily sent them blasting off.
After that, Ash challenged him to a [[Gym]] {{pkmn|battle}}, which Juan accepted. He then offered the group a ride to the [[Sootopolis Gym]] on his boat, where May complimented Juan for his performance. Juan then revealed that he was once a Pokémon Coordinator. After winning the five required [[Ribbon]]s, he entered the [[Grand Festival]] and won with the help of {{p|Milotic}} and the others, earning the [[Ribbon Cup]] and receiving the title of {{DL|Grand Festival|[[Top Coordinator}}]].
He also explained how he ended up [[Type expert|specializing]] in Water-type Pokémon, revealing that he admired their streamlined physiques and their weakness to {{type|Electric}} moves. Max became intrigued by Juan having a liking for a weakness, and Juan explained that, throughout his years competing in [[Pokémon Contest]]s, he learned that being close to making a mistake is one of the best ways to add appeal to a [[Contest Battle]]. He added that he has learned to be defensive against the most tricky attacks and to wait for each of them and then defend.
