Through the XY series, Clemont has come up with several inventions from his backpack called the Clemontic Gear (Japanese: シトロニックギア Citronic Gear), mostly to help Ash and his friends overcome a certain situation. Clemont usually introduces his new invention by saying: "The future is now, thanks to science! Clemontic Gear, ON!", followed by stating the name of the invention and explaining how it works. By means of a running gag, Clemont's inventions often explode or fail to work, with only a few inventions actually proving successful. Despite this, Ash always becomes enthralled with Clemont's inventions, always saying, "Wow! Science is so amazing!". Sometimes there is an environmental circumstance that causes the invention to fail, but most of the time it is because the invention isn't completely finished yet. Clemont tends to give either very obvious or very long and unpractical names to his inventions, often to the annoyance of Bonnie.

Image Name Description First appearance
Clemontic Gear backpack cushion.png Unnamed Clemont throws his backpack to a certain point and when it lands, the backpack opens and a large cushion appears to save someone's fall. It was used to save Ash when he fell from Prism Tower. Kalos, Where Dreams and Adventures Begin!
Clemontic Gear Aipom Arm.png Aipom Arm One of Clemont's regularly used inventions. It is an extension of his backpack and he uses it for various situations, such as opening locked doors, blocking attacks, and pulling away Bonnie when she embarrasses him. It is by far Clemont's most used invention. Lumiose City Pursuit!
Clemontic Gear Flying-type Pokémon Attracting Machine.png Flying-type Pokémon Attracting Machine By using soundwaves at a certain frequency, this invention can attract or repel bird Pokémon by affecting their internal compass. Clemont used it to attract Fletchling to them, as Ash wanted to catch it. However, Fletchling didn't respond and instead it attracted a swarm of Beedrill. Clemont tried to intensify the frequency to drive the Beedrill off, but instead it caused the invention to explode. A Battle of Aerial Mobility!
Clemontic Gear Electricity Generator.png Electricity Generator By moving a plastic plate between two glass orbs, the invention makes static electricity to create massive electrical charge. It was used to power up Dedenne who had lost power. However, the lever to control the invention broke off, causing the machine to overload and explode. A Shockingly Cheeky Friendship!
Clemontic Gear Sticky Web Sticky Wicked Whacker Wonk.png Sticky Web Sticky Wicked Whacker Wonk This invention is able to completely recreate the composition of the move Sticky Web, as such being able to use Sticky Web like a Pokémon would. Clemont used it to help Ash train for his Santalune Gym rematch. However, when Clemont turned it to full power, it started firing Sticky Webs straight into the air and onto itself, causing it to explode. After Ash successfully won his rematch, he claimed the invention did unintentionally help him develop a strategy for the battle. Battling on Thin Ice!
Clembot.png Clembot A robot with an artificial intelligence, being able to fully operate as a Pokémon Trainer and Gym Leader. Clemont built it to take over his duties as the Lumiose Gym Leader so he could focus more on inventing. He implemented a vocal password in it so he could take control of it anytime he needed. However, due to a mistiming he accidentally and unknowingly entered a wrong password. It also got a dent in its head when Clemont tripped over a wire while holding it. This caused it to rebel against its creator and drive Clemont and Bonnie out of the Gym, with Clemont not being able to stop it due to not knowing the correct password. It then fully took over the Gym, harshly treating any challengers. Weeks later, with help of Ash and Serena, Clemont and Bonnie managed to infiltrate the Gym. At the battlefield, Clemont challenged the Clembot to a battle. During the battle it wasn't able to compute Clemont's tactics and seized up. It was knocked out, and due to this Clemont was able to successfully reprogram it. It now takes over the role of Lumiose Gym Leader while Clemont is traveling with Ash, without causing any havoc. Clemont's Got a Secret!
Clemontic Gear Pokémon Translator.png Pokémon Translator By performing a complete analysis of vocal tone, movement and expression it allows the user to communicate with Pokémon. Clemont used it to try to communicate with a couple of Pancham. However, the group quickly deduced the invention didn't properly translate what the Pancham said. This caused Clemont to worry and tinker on his invention, but doing so caused it to blow up. The Bamboozling Forest!
Clemontic Gear Omnidirectional Super Sensitive Tracking Dish.png Omnidirectional Super Sensitive Tracking Dish It can detect and memorize the frequency of a transmitter chip. The user can then pinpoint the location of the transmitter chip on a radar-like device, no matter where it goes. Clemont used it so the group could follow a Pokémon smuggler named Dolan to his hideout unnoticed. They placed a transmitter chip on Clemont's Chespin, who was dressed up as a Spewpa. Dolan found the cage with Chespin in it and didn't notice it was a fake Spewpa and bore a chip. However, while following the chip's movement with Clemont's invention, the invention suddenly blew up. To Catch a Pokémon Smuggler!
Clemontic Gear Exercise Gear.png Exercise Gear This invention makes use of a treadmill and an exoskeleton worn by the person or Pokémon using it. It is meant to amplify the strength and health of the user. Clemont made it to help his Chespin become fitter, as it had become fat from eating too many macarons. He first tested it out himself, but hadn't thought of an option to make it stop. As such, the treadmill moved faster as Clemont continued to run on it, eventually causing it to explode. An Appetite for Battle!
Clemontic Gear Radio Wave Amplification Device.png Radio Wave Amplification Device It can convert an Electric-type-type's electricity into radio waves and amplify them. It can then broadcast the waves to attract other Electric-type Pokémon in the direct environment. It was used to find Clemont's Dedenne, whom the group had lost. Ash's Pikachu used his electricity to get the invention working. However, during the process Clemont figured the machine needed more power to function properly. Pikachu gave more electricity, but this caused the machine to overload and explode. A Jolting Switcheroo!
Clemontic Gear Muscle Mass Magnifying Machine.png Muscle Mass Magnifying Machine The invention consists of a pair of shoes with special springs attached to them. The springs multiply the power of one's jumping by using one's body weight. Because of the added load of the body weight, they strengthen the leg muscles rapidly. Clemont used it to help Ash and Froakie with their training. However, as he wanted to demonstrate its capabilities, the springs launched Clemont high into the air and out of sight. A Rush of Ninja Wisdom!
Clemontic Gear Bonnie-Out-of-Bed-o-Matic.png Bonnie-Out-of-Bed-o-Matic The invention consists of a classic alarm clock with arms and legs. By hitting the bell on its head with its arms, the invention tries to violently wake someone up. Clemont stated he originally made it to wake up Bonnie, as she always had trouble getting out of bed. He later used it to try to wake up a heavily snoring Snorlax. However, the invention didn't manage to wake Snorlax up and only ended up overloading itself and exploding. Awakening the Sleeping Giant!
Clemontic Gear decoy robot.png Unnamed A robot that looks like Clemont and is meant to serve as a decoy. Clemont build it to escape from the clutches of Princess Allie, who had fallen in love with him. However, after Clemont escaped she quickly discovered the decoy. Infuriated, Princess Allie hit the robot with her fan, causing it to explode. Awakening the Sleeping Giant!
Clemontic Gear Automatic Pikachu Retrieval Device.png Automatic Pikachu Retrieval Device A robot with the appearance of a Pikachu. It can detect a Pikachu's unique energy pattern and will track it down to even the farthest places. It comes with a pair of wheels so it can easily move around while it tracks down signals. Clemont used it to try to track down Ash's Pikachu, who had been taken away by Madame X. It got stuck in a fence however, causing it to explode and getting it partially destroyed. Clemont then tried to repair it, but quickly left it behind as the group continued their search for Pikachu on their own. When they later found Pikachu and he started to attack the group, the invention started to operate on its own and picked up signals again. It followed the signals into Madame X's hideout, but went out of control and bumped right into the Malamar used by Madame X. It exploded again and was destroyed for good, but it still unintentionally saved the day, as the Malamar lost its control over everyone it hypnotized. A Conspiracy to Conquer!
Clemontic Gear Pokéstar Shooter.png Pokéstar Shooter A robot with a camera for a head, used for shooting videos. It can make various shots such as fixed shots, mobile shots and crane shots, and all with a quality equalling Pokéstar Studios, which it was named after. It also has arms and three legs so it can move around easier. It is operated with a remote. Clemont used it to try to help Serena with shooting a PokéVision video. However, at only the first take it already started to overload, violently chasing Serena and her Fennekin around. Ash came into action and destroyed the robot with Pikachu's Electro Ball. A PokéVision of Things to Come!
Clemontic Gear No-Need-for-Water-type-Pokémon-Food-Chinchou-Model-Magikarp-Magnet.png No-Need-for-Water-type-Pokémon-Food-Chinchou-Model-Magikarp-Magnet It is a small device shaped like Chinchou. It can emit a sound wave inaudible to people from its antennae, all the way to the bottom of the ocean. The sound wave has a natural soothing effect on Magikarp so that it attracts them and causing them to gather around the device. It is operated with a remote. Clemont used it to try to lure the "golden Magikarp". However, instead of attracting Magikarp it attracted a group of Sharpedo, who quickly destroyed the device. Going for the Gold!
Clemontic Gear This-Time-it-Will-Attract-Only-Magikarp-for-Certain-Lanturn Model.png This-Time-it-Will-Attract-Only-Magikarp-for-Certain-Lanturn-Model As a follow-up to the previous invention, Clemont created this one. It works exactly like the Chinchou device, only it is improved by extensive research by Clemont, with now emitting the exact soundwaves preferred by Magikarp, and it is based on a Lanturn instead. Like the previous one, this invention was also used to try to lure the golden Magikarp. It first appeared as if it really did lure in the golden Magikarp, only it turned out to be Team Rocket's Magikarp submarine which wasn't lured by Clemont's invention but instead just passed by. Nothing further was heard from Clemont's invention. Going for the Gold!
Clemontic Gear No-Hard-Feelings-Fair-and-Square Lottery Device.png No-Hard-Feelings-Fair-and-Square Lottery Device A device that is used to make hard decisions easier. The display of the invention shows two arrows. Stickers must be placed on each of the two arrows to decide what decision should be made. The invention is activated by pressing a red button. The arrows on the display then start moving along a path full of obstacles that ultimately lead to an "O" and an "X". The arrow that points to the O is decided the winner. As a finishing touch, confetti comes out of the top of the invention. Clemont used it to decide who would accompany Lindsey in her submarine, as there was only room for three people. It ultimately decided Ash and Serena as the winners. The invention is notable for not exploding or failing to work. An Undersea Place to Call Home!
Clemontic Gear Precisely-Even-Cut-o-Matic.png Precisely-Even-Cut-o-Matic It is a device that makes it easier to fairly cut a slice of cake or other food wares into several smaller pieces. It cuts down to the millimeter precise. Clemont used it when he and his friends managed to obtain only one slice of Brackish Town's famous chocolate cake. He wanted to cut it into four pieces but later Diantha joined them and he cut it into 5 pieces instead. It is one of Clemont's few inventions that doesn't rely on electricity, and also one of the few that didn't fail to work. The Bonds of Evolution!
Clemontic Gear Mechanical Absorber of Any Pokémon Move.png Mechanical Absorber of Any Pokémon's Move It is a device that completely absorbs a Pokémon's attack. It can absorb special moves, as well as repel physical moves. Clemont used it against Team Rocket, absorbing their Pokémon's attacks so Ash could battle them without any resistance. After Team Rocket was blasted off, the group complemented Clemont on his successful invention. However, right at that moment it still blew up. Heroes - Friends and Faux Alike!
Team Rocket Mecha XY029.png Electricity-Has-No-Effect-On-Me-Atron Although the idea and body of this invention weren't invented by Clemont, he did perfect it and make it his own. It is a robot with the appearance of a Heliolisk. It has extendable claws which it uses to attack others and completely absorbs electricity by spreading its frill. Team Rocket tricked Clemont in helping them perfect the machine and later used it against Ash and his friends. It was able to grab Pikachu and handed it over to Team Rocket. However, after this it suddenly overloaded and exploded, like almost all other inventions Clemont has a hand in. Heroes - Friends and Faux Alike!
Clemontic Gear Pokémon Transport Machine.png Pokémon Transport Machine It is a machine that can transport a small Pokémon encaged in a capsule to a location with another Pokémon Transport Machine. Clemont was tricked into making it by Team Rocket. They used it to transport Ash's Pikachu to a safe location. It was not seen afterwards. Heroes - Friends and Faux Alike!
Clemontic Gear Mechanical Absorber of Any Pokémon Move Model Two.png Mechanical Absorber of Any Pokémon's Move Model Two It is an improved version of the earlier similar invention, though no apparent changes are seen apart from sporting a different color (the first model is a green/blueish color, while the second model is a dark red color). Clemont used this one against Team Rocket too, again absorbing their Pokémon's every move. Although it once more seemed as if the invention was a success after Team Rocket was blasted off, it proved to be a failure as well, as it too exploded. Heroes - Friends and Faux Alike!
Clemontic Gear Solar Charger.png Solar Charger An extendable arm of Clemont's backpack, similar to the Aipom Arm. Its only known function in the anime so far is a strong flashlight. Clemont used it to lighten up a cave while the group and Korrina were in search for a Lucarionite. The Cave of Trials!
Clemontic Gear Pokémon Power Meter.png Pokémon Power Meter A machine used to measure a Pokémon's power. It uses pre-existing Pokémon data as reference value. The user needs to point the gauger at a subject and then turn the power on. A Pokémon's power is then instantly measured. Clemont used it to measure Korrina's Lucario new power, as it managed to Mega Evolve. It exploded when Mega Lucario's sheer power caused it to overload during a battle with Ash's Pikachu. The Aura Storm!
Clemontic Gear Flower Arranger One.png Flower Arranger One It is a machine used to arrange flowers in the most artistic way possible. Clemont used it to execute Mabel's assignment of arranging flowers. However, shortly after it started to do so, it overloaded and blew up. The Bonds of Mega Evolution!
Clemontic Gear Super Stretch Ladder.png Super Stretch Ladder A ladder that can stretch to drastic heights. The user must stand on the ladder, and then the small lever on the side must be pulled. The ladder then stretches and pulls the user into the air. Clemont used it to get Ash to the highest floor of a mall, as he was trying to get to Diancie. However, Ash eventually sent out his Hawlucha and got off the ladder. Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction
Clemontic Gear Other Dimension Converter.png Other Dimension Converter By making high-pressure electromagnetic waves clash against each other, this machine creates a big distortion in time and space, as such opening an entrance to another dimension. It is modelled after a Magnemite. Clemont used it to try to get to Ash who had gone through a portal to the Mirror World. It exploded as soon as he turned it on, however. The Cave of Mirrors!
Clemontic Gear Pokéstar Shooter Mark 2.png Pokéstar Shooter Mark 2 An improved version of the Pokéstar Shooter. Outwards it has no visible changes, except for its midsection and feet sporting another color (the first version's were dark blue, while this one's are dark red). Clemont used it during the Pokémon Summer Camp for the PokéVision competition. This time it seemingly worked perfectly, as it managed to perfectly shoot a PokéVision video, one that eventually even got Ash and his friends to win the competition. Day Three Blockbusters!
Clemontic Gear Not-A-Very-Good-Dancer Automated Good Dancing Device.png Not-A-Very-Good-Dancer Automated Good Dancing Device It is a machine that enables people who have trouble dancing to rhythms to learn to dance. The person using the machine is forced to dance, and if they keep it up and get used to the dancing, they'll eventually be able to dance on their own. It is operated with a remote. Clemont used it to help Ash with training for his Shalour Gym battle, as he had developed a strategy involving dancing, but wasn't able to properly dance himself. The invention exploded when Clemont drastically improved the speed of the dancing. Origins of Mega Evolution!
Clemontic Gear Mechanized Motivator.png Mechanized Motivator A machine that makes the user motivated. It must be placed on the head of the user. Once it is put on, it starts working automatically. Confetti then comes out from the top and a small cover raises, revealing a flat Wigglytuff doll that starts moving and shouting "Get up and go!". Clemont used it to try to motivate a depressed Wigglytuff that worked at a Pokémon Center. He first tested it on Bonnie, but she didn't particularly like it as it didn't manage to motivate her. He then placed it on Wigglytuff, but as soon as it put it on, the invention started overheating and exploded. The Clumsy Crier Quiets the Chaos!
Clemontic Gear Clemontic Showers.png Clemontic Showers A system Clemont made in his youth. It consists of multiple machines located permanently in the streets of an unnamed town. It showers Electric-type Pokémon with electricity so they won't have to suffer from electricity loss. It runs on rechargeable batteries powered by Electric-type Pokémon and is controlled from a central tower. From the tower come several underground cables, which in turn power the Clemontic Showers. Clemont thought of it when he was looking for an idea for his graduate research at an academy he studied at. During a stroll, he found an exhausted Shinx and brought him to a Pokémon Center. The Nurse Joy there stated he had experienced electricity loss and told Clemont the Pokémon Center received a lot of Pokémon with the same problem. She figured they wouldn't suffer from electricity loss if there was a place where they could freely absorb energy. As such Clemont started to work on the Clemontic Showers. When the system was finished, it proved to be a success, getting high acclaim with teachers of the academy and causing Clemont to graduate. A Campus Reunion!
Clemontic Gear Only Lonely Robo Dancing Partner.png Only Lonely Robo Dancing Partner A robot designed as a female Chespin that operates as a dancing partner. It grabs a Pokémon's hands and performs several dancing techniques with it. It is operated with a remote. Clemont used it for his Chespin, who stated it wanted to perform like Pokémon in Pokémon Showcases do. After performing several dance techniques with Chespin, the invention started to overheat and went out of control. It ultimately exploded. Pathways to Performance Partnering!
Clemontic Gear Robo Step-by-Step.png Robo Step-by-Step A camouflage machine with wooden decoy models representing Sanpei, Serena, Ash and Pikachu, Bonnie and Dedenne, and Clemont. By switching it on with a remote, it can walk around on its ten mechanic legs. Clemont used it as a means of distracting a mysterious masked ninja who was on the hunt for Sanpei. It was discovered by Team Rocket however, who at first mistook it for the real Ash and his friends, but soon discovered they were being tricked. They stopped the machine in its tracks, and Jessie, out of anger of being fooled, kicked the machine's power generator, causing it to explode. A Stealthy Challenge!
Clemontic Gear Pokémon Translator Mark 2.png Pokémon Translator Mark 2 An invention consisting of a television-like device and a helmet. It is an updated model of the Pokémon Translator Clemont had invented earlier. Other than the Pokémon Translator, which can only translate a Pokémon's voice, this invention can visualize a Pokémon's thoughts on the television screen. The helmet must be placed on a Pokémon, after which a switch on the television device must be pressed on. The invention will then directly translate the Pokémon's thoughts into moving images. Clemont used it to uncover the thoughts of a Goomy the group encountered. The Goomy seemed very anxious, and the group was wondering what it what it was worried about. At first, the invention worked fine and perfectly translated Goomy's thoughts on the screen. However, at a certain point, the screen suddenly went blank. Clemont, not sure what was wrong, knocked on the television device to get it working again, but this caused it to explode. Although the invention failed to work, it did help Ash and his friends understand Goomy's problems. A Slippery Encounter!
Clemontic Gear Easy-Peasy Mountain Climber.png Easy-Peasy Mountain Climber An invention that consists of a pair of shoes. The shoes have caterpillar tracks underneath them, which propel the user forward. The shoes also have sticks attached to them that the user must place their hands in for grip. This invention helps someone swiftly climb steep slopes without having to use any strength. On their way to the Coumarine City Pokémon Center, Ash and his friends had to climb a steep hill. After getting tired from climbing, Clemont introduced this invention. It at first easily moved Clemont up the hill, but soon the machine started to get out of control, and uncontrollably moved Clemont around in all directions at a fast velocity. When Clemont went through a fence, the invention exploded. Thawing an Icy Panic!
Clemontic Gear Mini Music Box.png Mini Music Box A music box that looks like a present box with a ribbon on top. The ribbon is actually a key, and can be removed. The key must be placed in a hole on the side and switched on. The box will then open, revealing a turning wheel with dolls resembling Bunnelby, Chespin and Luxio on it. It is accompanied by a melody. Clemont began working on it after the group was told by Ramos about an annual festival held in Coumarine City, where participants give each other presents under the "Pledging Tree", the tree in which the Coumarine Gym is located. He wanted to create a present himself, so he spent the whole day working on the invention until the start of the festival at sunset. At the festival, he gave it to his Bunnelby, Chespin and Luxio. Bunnelby and Luxio were seen enjoying the present, although Chespin preferred the food Ash gave his Pokémon instead. Under the Pledging Tree!
Clemontic Gear Gothitelle Domestic Engineer.png Gothitelle Domestic Engineer A robot that resembles a Gothitelle dressed like a household maid. It automatically detects all objects in in its vicinity that have dirt on them and polishes them clean. It has all kinds of household items attached to its body, which means it probably has other functions besides cleaning. Clemont started working on this invention while being at his home in Lumiose City in preparation for his Gym Battle with Ash. He showed it to Ash, Bonnie and Serena while having a video conversation with them. While explaining the invention to his friends however, the robot suddenly came up to Clemont and used its dust cleaner to suck Clemont up. When Clemont resisted, the invention exploded. Good Friends, Great Training!
150px Search In a Second An invention almost identical to the Omnidirectional Super Sensitive Tracking Dish. Just like that invention, it follows the signal of a transmitter chip and tells the user where it currently is on a radar-like device. Clemont used it when Team Rocket stole Professor Sycamore's Garchomp. Before Team Rocket took off, Clemont asked Ash to throw the transmitter chip on their mecha. After he had done this and Team Rocket had left, he brought up the invention. The group and Professor Sycamore then tracked down Team Rocket using the device, but during the search it malfunctioned and blew up. Garchomp's Mega Bond!
150px Unknown This invention consists of a small pod with extendable legs. When the switch on the top is pressed, the top of the pod comes off and out comes a donut-shaped balloon that is automatically inflated. The pod can detect the body temperature of humans and Pokémon in the immediate vicinity, and this can be tracked down on a thermograph held by the user. However, it can not tell which body temperature outline belongs to which person or Pokémon. Clemont used it to find Ash, Bonnie and Serena when he got separated from them. On the thermograph, he noticed something quickly coming towards him. It turned out to be an angry Pangoro which attacked Clemont. The invention was not seen again afterwards. So You're Having a Bad Day!
150px Unknown An invention that looks like a scanner. It makes full use of available sensing technology in order to pick up and monitor inexplicable signals. The invention is connected to a special backpack and also makes use of a touchscreen also connected to the backpack by a robot arm. Clemont used it when he and his friends visited the "Scary House" near Laverre City. Inside, they encountered strange phenomena. The invention picked up several signals, but was not able to identify them properly. When Clemont was picked up into the air by an invisible force, the invention dropped of his back. It was taken away by the same invisible force inside a nearby room. Ash and his friends entered the room, and there the invention was finally able to identify the invisible forces as a Gastly, a Haunter and a Gengar. It was not seen again afterwards. XY072
