Clemont's Dedenne (Japanese: シトロンのデデンネ Citron's Dedenne) is the first Pokémon Clemont caught during his journey through Kalos, and his fifth overall. He captured it by Bonnie's request so she can care for it as she is not yet a Pokémon Trainer.


As a wild Pokémon

Clemont and Dedenne

Ash, Clemont and Bonnie first encountered Dedenne in A Battle of Aerial Mobility during their journey to Santalune City. Bonnie was eager to care for the cute Pokémon, and asked Clemont if he would catch it for her to allow her to raise and take with her when she was old enough to be a Pokémon Trainer. Clemont agreed, and Ash helped her; however, Dedenne ran off crying when a Fletchling stole the berry it had harvested from the tree. After the same Fletchling was captured by Ash, Dedenne was last seen watching the group as they leave.

Soon after, in A Shockingly Cheeky Friendship!, Dedenne reappeared to the group and stole some food and the gang gave chase. This resulted in Pikachu getting lost alongside Dedenne. The two became friends, and managed to save each other from Team Rocket. After reuniting with the group and defeating Team Rocket, Clemont captured Dedenne and then allowed it out of its Poké Ball so it could stay with Bonnie in her satchel.

With Clemont and Bonnie

In The Bamboozling Forest!, it used its ability to detect electricity from Pikachu to find him, Froakie, Fennekin, and Chespin when the four were separated from their Trainers.

In To Catch a Pokémon Smuggler!, Serena gave it a Spewpa disguise to use as bait for Dolan, a Pokémon buyer that the group was trying to take down. However, it proved too small to pass for a Spewpa, so Chespin was volunteered instead.

In An Appetite for Battle!, Bonnie used it in a battle against Clemont's Chespin. Due to Chespin being overweight at the time, it tripped during its attack, falling near Dedenne where a single Thunder Shock defeated the Grass type, giving it and Bonnie the win.

In A Jolting Switcheroo!, at a Pokémon Center, Bonnie's bag was accidently taken by Lyn, as their bags looked similar. Since it was resting inside earlier, Dedenne accidentally went along with Lyn and her older sister. When it woke up, it accompanied Lyn whilst she tried to find her Pichu, it was also given a ribbon by Lyn which was later used for identification when Lyn lost Dedenne. Later it shared a donut with Lyn. When Clemont used his "Radiowave Amplification Device" to amplify Pikachu's energy waves, Dedenne found them and began to follow them to a Vineyard when they were both attacked by Beedrill, though it fought off one with Thunder Shock, it was attacked by multiple when attacked by Beedrill but it was saved by Pikachu and reunited with Bonnie. It later had dinner with Ash and his friends; Lyn and Lena but it was not hungry as it was given lots of snacks by Lyn during the day.

Personality and characteristics

Bonnie taking care of Dedenne

It was made clear in its very first appearance that Dedenne is a gluttonous Pokémon. In A Battle of Aerial Mobility!, its desire for a berry was strong enough that it was willing to fight Pikachu over it, and it only approached Bonnie because she had the berry in her hand. It reappeared to the group in A Shockingly Cheeky Friendship! to steal food. Dedenne is also a bit timid, as shown in its debut when it got scared off by Fletchling swooping in. In A Shockingly Cheeky Friendship!, Dedenne develops a sibling relationship with Pikachu, whom it looks up to and is impressed by, and it also becomes close to Bonnie, as it is often seen in either her hair or satchel. Dedenne is also prone to sleep while it is conserving its electrical energy, although it does so at the most inconvenient times, such as when it slept during attacks by Team Rocket in Grooming Furfrou! and Mega-Mega Meowth Madness!. Dedenne can sometimes be an affectionate Pokémon as shown in A Shockingly Cheeky Friendship! and Going For the Gold!, when Bonnie nuzzles Dedenne, she causes it to use Nuzzle, giving Bonnie a shock.
