As part of the first class, Dendra explains the remaining concepts of the Training process and a physical class that seeks to exercise Trainers and see if they are worthy of the Tera Orb they have received.

Jacq also participates in the class and gives an additional exercise to each student, which consists of making reports and taking photos of wild Pokémon that each student interacts with.

Gym Leaders Challenge

As part of the Training, each Trainer is assigned to battle a Paldea League Gym Leader who matches their own aptitude. The allocated Gym Leaders are shown in the app that is installed by Jacq on the Rotom Phone of each participating Trainer.

Each Training session with a Gym Leader can be on two difficulties; basics and implementation.

Basic
Gym Leader Challenger(s) Result
 
Katy
Liko Approved
"Sandwich" Disqualified
 
Brassius
Roy Approved

Dot Approved

As soon as a Trainer manages to be successful in the proposed challenges, It is not necessary for the challenger to win the battle to be approved, the corresponding Gym Leader rewards him or her with a stamp on their Rotom Phone.

The stamp Trainers earn after completing a Terastal Training objective.


Field research

Once students complete the Terastal Training basic module, they have the option of doing the research work. Which according to Clavell, is a "rewarding" task.
