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. He captured it by Bonnie's request so she can care for it because she is not yet a Pokémon Trainer.


Clemont and Dedenne

Ash, Clemont and Bonnie first encountered Dedenne 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 food it was being offered. After the same Fletchling was captured by Ash, Dedenne was last seen watching the group as they leave.

Soon after, 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.

Personality and characteristics

It was made clear in its very first appearance that Dedenne is a gluttonous Pokémon. In fact, it only approached Bonnie in XY003 because she had food in her hand. In XY004, Dedenne's desire for a berry was strong enough that it was willing to fight Pikachu for it. Dedenne is also a bit timid, as shown when it got scared off by Fletchling swooping in. Dedenne later develops a sibling relationship with Pikachu, whom it looks up to and is impressed by, and also becomes close to Bonnie, as it is often seen in either her hair or satchel. Dedenne is also prone to sleep at the most inconvenient times, such as when it slept during attacks by Team Rocket in XY008 and XY010.
