Last time I've only covered what the Pokeathlon Dome and the surrounding area looks like. This time I'll go into detail on the rooms in the basement which you visit.
Here's the video:(read more for description!)
The first room marks down the highest records of the total score you've gotten in the five categories, Speed, Power, Technique, Stamina and Jump, which tallies up the scores from the three events in each one plus your bonus points. Use smaller, weaker Pokemon for higher bonus points, and perform the best you can to get points for end game awards like most tackles, most dashes, most jumps and so on. Trophies in this room(two for each category) involves breaking a certain record for each one.
The second room is the records of the medals obtained by each Pokemon species. Yes, the medals your Pokemon get aren't exclusive to itself, Say you have two Marills and they both win medals in the Speed course. It'll still be counted as only one medal in this room. If a Pokemon has won in all 5 events it is considered a Medalist Pokemon. Trophies in this room(10 in all) is gotten by getting a certain number of Medalist Pokemon. But it's quite hard- the fourth trophy needs 25 Medalist Pokemon, and I can't even get to that yet, so imagine how many I would need to get the later ones! Crazy.
The third room records the high scores you get for each individual event, and trophies in this room require you to break the high scores for each event. And some of them are really, not easy to achieve.
The last room is the winners' room, with a gold statue of you and statues of whichever three Pokemon you won with in your previous Pokeathlon attempt. This room compiles the high scores of all the events and categories you've participated in and adds the total number of medals you've won to give you a final score. To get the ten trophies in this room you have to increase this final score to a certain number (me, 4200 points for the 9th trophy, and it's getting tough to achieve). This room records all the trophies you've won(10 for each room, 40 in all including this one) and gives you a rank for it. For now, I have 29, and my rank is 'Unbeatable Pokeathlete'. God damn it, I've got a long way to go before I can live up to that name...the brick breaking game destroys me every time.
