Clemont (Japanese: シトロン Citron) is an inventor who is the Gym Leader of Lumiose Gym, Gym of Lumiose City. He specializes in Electric-type Pokémon. He gives the Voltage Badge to Trainers who defeat him.

In the games

At some early point in the game, he gives a device that solves electronic puzzles to Shauna. He first appears outside the Prism Tower with his little sister, Bonnie, lighting it up. He will give TM24 (Thunderbolt) after being defeated. According to the television show Gym Freaks, he is currently developing a machine that enables him to run faster, which is apparently his worst talent. It also states that he has secretly started to save money to go to the amusement park in the Unova region. He is described as a genius, having been credited with the invention of Super Training and the PSS. Despite this though, many of his inventions apparently fail to work.

Quotes

Pokémon X and Y

Lumiose City

"Not quite... I just have to check on the lighting circuit here."
"Alright! Everything's ready! The future is now, thanks to science! Prism Tower lighting system... ACTIVATE!"
"Excellent... My Prism Tower lighting system worked brilliantly, just like all my inventions."

Lumiose Gym

  • Before battle
"Oh! Thank you for coming. Allow me to introduce myself..."
"Bonnie! How many times do I have to remind you... It's not my own strength that matters, nor any other Trainer's. None of us would be here if it weren't for Pokémon."
"She's right about that, at least. Let's both do our best in battle."
  • Being defeated
"Your passion for battle inspires me!"
  • After being defeated
"Oh, Bonnie... When will you learn there's no shame in losing? I'm glad whenever I get to learn something new thanks to strong challengers like this boy/girl here. Now, to the victor go the spoils! This Voltage Badge belongs to you!"
"If you have a Voltage Badge, you will be seen as a friend and equal by any Pokémon up to Lv. 70. And here. Take this TM as well..."
"Arghhh! Bonnie, you--! ... ... ... The future is now, thanks to science! Behold the machine that gives: Technical Machines! ...I just wanted to be able to say it, OK? At least once."
"Look, I'm not... It's not like I'm just trying to make myself stronger or... ... ... ... All I'm trying to do is enjoy every day to the fullest with my Pokémon, while doing the science that I love with my inventing."
(post-game) "How did the world look after defeating the Champion? I really want to understand it. The way the world looks to a real Pokémon Champion... I'm trying to invent a machine that will let me see it for myself."

Battle Chateau

  • Before battle
"Oh! I'm glad that we got to meet again like this!"
  • Being defeated
"Your passion for battle inspires me!"
  • After being defeated
(if giving the player an item) "The future is now, thanks to science! Power on, my new precious gift-giving machine... Mach 2!"
"I'm glad whenever I get to learn from other strong challengers. Thank you for the battle!"

Clemont in Pokémon Adventures

Clemont is first seen in Cyllage City alongside Grant. He gets a call from Bonnie informing him that one of the Electric-type Pokémon that they used to power Prism Tower during a blackout has gone missing. Grant then points Clemont to Grace, who he noticed sitting on a bench. They see her being taken away by Team Flare members. As he travels back to Lumiose City, Clemont reads up on Grace in various issues of Rock-type Magazine that Grant lent to him. He finds Grace's daughter, Y, and her friends chasing after an Electrike that had stolen Y's clothes.

After the Electrike had been defeated and Y's clothes returned to her, the Electrike evolves into a Manectric. Clemont introduces himself to the group, but they accuse him of being someone suspicious. Clemont denies these claims, and when X realizes that Manectric must be looking for something, Clemont offers to use his backpack to track down the item in question, a Mega Stone. In addition to the Mega Stone, Clemont also finds a Team Flare Grunt in a tree who was also aiming to get the Mega Stone. Clemont attacks the Grunt with his Aipom Arm and obtains the Mega Stone. The Grunt retaliates by having his Tyrunt chew the tree down so that it would fall on top of Clemont and makes off with the Mega Stone. After the Grunt escapes, Y helps free Clemont with her Rhyhorn.

Trivia

  • Clemont's Japanese Leader title is 世界を 明るくする 発明家.
