Clemont (Japanese: シトロン Citron) is a traveling companion of Ash who made his debut in Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin! along with his younger sister, Bonnie.


Clemont was first seen with his sister Bonnie in Lumiose City. Both were standing outside the Prism Tower when they watched Ash go inside. After Ash was ejected out of the building for not having any Badges, Clemont saved Ash with his Clemontic Gear while Bonnie saved Ash's Pikachu. After introducing himself, Ash challenged Clemont to a battle, which he accepted. Clemont battled Ash and his Pikachu with his Bunnelby. Despite admitting that he only just caught Bunnelby, Clemont proved to be an effective battler and managed to counter many of Ash's attacks.

The battle was interrupted by Team Rocket, who were aiming at stealing Pikachu and Bunnelby. Together with Ash and a Froakie that saved Pikachu from an attack, the trio were sent blasting off. However, Froakie had gotten injured in the battle and collapsed, so Clemont suggested they hurry to Professor Sycamore's lab. Clemont lagged behind as he was forced to carry everyone's bags.

In Lumiose City Pursuit!, Clemont helped Ash stop a rampaging Garchomp by using his Clemontic Gear's Aipom Arm to break into Prism Tower. He was unable to go any further when a part of the tower collapsed in front of him and Bonnie, but Ash managed to go on and save the day.

In XY003, Clemont and Bonnie officially decided to accompany Ash on his journey through Kalos. Throughout the episode, Clemont expressed his admiration of Ash and respect for him as a Trainer. Later in the episode, Clemont demonstrated another one of his inventions, a phonograph that made a sound at high frequencies to attract bird Pokémon. Unfortunately, the machine only attracted Beedrill before completely exploding. Though it caused the group trouble, Ash said that the machine was an incredible invention which made Clemont delighted and proud.

In XY004, he and the others encountered the Dedenne they had met before. Clemont used Bunnelby to track Dedenne after it ran off so that he could keep it for Bonnie, but Dedenne had gotten lost with Pikachu. After Dedenne and Pikachu had escaped from Team Rocket and met up with the others, Dedenne fell over from exhaustion. Using one of his Clemontic Gears, Clemont recharged Dedenne despite the machine blowing up in everyone's faces immediately after. When Team Rocket attacked the group, Clemont used Dedenne to send them blasting off with Pikachu's assistance. He then caught Dedenne and gave it to Bonnie so that she could keep him in her satchel.

In XY009, it was revealed that Clemont was the Gym Leader of the Lumiose City Gym in Prism Tower. He had been ousted from his position by his own robot creation, Citroid. After seeing the damage Citroid was causing to the Gym and how it was driving away potential challengers, Clemont decided to challenge the robot to a battle for ownership of the gym. Clemont was forced to battle Heliolisk, his own Pokémon that was under Citroid's control. Clemont battled with Bunnelby and was ultimately successful in defeating Citroid, thus gaining back the title of Gym Leader. Clemont then decided to leave ownership of the gym to his father Limone so he could continue traveling with Ash.

Clemont is an inventor who takes pride in his inventions and science in general, although a recurring gag involves his devices failing to work (or partially working) before exploding, implying that he is currently not skilled enough to invent a long-term device. He is impressed with Ash's bravery and compassion towards Pokémon, which is what motivates him to travel with Ash, so he could become stronger himself.

Clemont loves his younger sister Bonnie, being willing to catch a Pokémon for her to keep. He also takes good care of her, putting her in bed when she gets tired. However, he easily gets embarrassed by her antics of trying to get a wife for him, as seen when he visibly became upset after she asked Viola if she could marry him, causing him to drag her away with his Aipom arm.

Clemont is usually shown as being nonathletic, as he easily gets tired while running. However, he also seems to have a reckless side, as shown in XY007 when he grabbed a rock, jumped in the air, and aggressively smashed the remote that Team Rocket were using to trap all the Rhyhorn and Pikachu in a cage.
