Skyla (Japanese: フウロ Huuro) is a pilot who is the Gym Leader of Mistralton City's Gym, known officially as the Mistralton Gym. She specializes in Flying-type Pokémon. She gives the Jet Badge to Trainers who defeat her.

In the games

Skyla appears in Pokémon Black and White as the Gym Leader of Mistralton City's Gym. This Gym is the sixth to be challenged by the player. Trainers who defeat Skyla will receive the Jet Badge, along with TM62 (Acrobatics). She has a passion for flying and owns an entire airport. Her grandfather is said to be a legendary pilot.

She first appears in Mistralton as the player arrives in the town. There she is speaking with Cedric Juniper about using her plane to fly to a faraway region. Before battling the player, she says that she saw an injured Pokémon atop Celestial Tower to the north and that she must help it. After the player talks to her and rings the bell at the top of the tower, she heads back to the Gym. She also reappears at N's Castle where she and the other Unova Gym Leaders hold off the Seven Sages. In the summer, she visits Cynthia at Undella Town, as do the other female Gym Leaders and Elite Four members.

Skyla is good friends with fellow Gym Leader Elesa. Between the events of Black and White and Black 2 and White 2, Elesa confided in her about changing her image.

In Black 2 and White 2, Skyla returns as a Gym Leader. The TM Skyla gives out remains the same. She aids the player and Professor Juniper in reaching Lentimas Town in order to access Opelucid City, due to the collapse of Twist Mountain. She flies her plane with them on board.

After the player receives the Permit from Professor Juniper, Skyla will fly the player to the Nature Preserve. She is also seen in the Pokémon World Tournament.

Quotes

Pokémon Black and White

Mistralton City
"Professor, who's that Trainer?"
"Oh, I see! So that means you'll be challenging the Gym! Oh boy! I'm really looking forward to it!"
"Professor, my plane is a cargo plane! It carries cargo, not people! And you're talking as if places like Kanto and Sinnoh are right around the corner!"
"Sheesh! It's hard to believe a happy-go-lucky guy like that could be a world-renowned Pokémon professor. Heads-up, <player>. As a Gym Leader, I'd be happy to have you challenge the Gym, but there's something I need to take care of first. Just now, as I was flying the cargo plane, I saw something on top of the Celestial Tower. I'm sure that it is a sick Pokémon! If it is, I can't just leave it there! I have to look into this right away. I'm leaving for Route 7's Celestial Tower. You can come along if you want."
Celestial Tower
"Oh, you came. Thank you! I was right. What I saw was a hurt Pokémon. Don't worry, though! It's fine now! I gave it a Max Revive, then it felt better and flew away! Hee hee! Don't I have great eyesight? No matter how far away things are, a Pilot's eyes can see them! Oh, that's right! Since you've come this far, why don't you ring the bell? Celestial Tower's bell is for soothing the spirits of Pokémon. Also, the character of the person ringing the bell is reflected in its sound."
"Come on, don't be shy!"
"What a pretty sound. <Player>, you are a kind and strong person. It's that kind of sound. I'd like to introduce myself again! I'm Skyla, the Leader of Mistralton's Pokémon Gym. I use Flying-type Pokémon. When you are ready, please come to the Gym. I'll give you a big welcome!"
Mistralton Gym
  • Before battle
"Hee-hee! I've been waiting for you. Did you enjoy flying with the help of the Mistralton Gym cannons? They're my pride and joy! This time, let's try something else!"
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"When I think about a match with a fabulous Trainer like you, it's like I'm walking on air!"
  • After sending out last Pokémon
"This is my last Pokémon... But I'll never give up hope!"
  • Being defeated
"Being your opponent in battle is a new source of strength to me. Thank you!"
  • After being defeated
"You're an amazing Pokémon Trainer. My Pokémon and I are happy, because for the first time in a while, we could fight with our full strength. This is an official League Gym Badge. I think it will look good on you."
"Wow, hot stuff! With that many Gym Badges, Pokémon up to Lv. 70 will obey you. Also, as thanks for a Pokémon battle that made me very happy, I want you to have this TM."
"My present to you is Acrobatics. If the user doesn't have a held item, its power doubles. It's a pretty technical move. Be sure to compensate for the lack of a held item! By the way, when I flew over Twist Mountain on the way to Icirrus City... Team Plasma--is that the name? Anyway, they were heading for the city. What kind of people are they?"
"Icirrus City, where you'll find the next Gym, is past Route 7, just after you cross Twist Mountain. It's a hop, skip, and a jump when flying, but it's a really challenging walk. Heads up! Make sure you're ready for it!"
  • Post game
Are you and your Pokémon well? Our battle together was so much fun. Now, my Pokémon and I have started training again. I don't usually let people travel in my cargo plane, but battling with you was such a blast that I'd make an exception."
N's Castle
"I'm fine! Don't worry!"
"Now! Acrobatics!!"
Cynthia's villa
"I get along well with Elesa, but Pokémon battles are a different story! If you're not super prepared, your battles with Electric types will leave you in shock!"
"Seeing the ground again after safely passing through a rain cloud in a violent rainstorm... Someday, I'd like to share that moment with you."
"I was just thinking about that. When it comes to swimsuits... You're either about self-composure or you're about self-exposure!"
"Even distant Sinnoh is just a hop, skip, and a jump if I use my cargo plane. But... I also love to travel the sky with a Pokémon when it's using Fly!"
"Mmm... Swimming in the ocean sure feels great!"
Badge Case
You'll see smiles all around you, with the brightest of skies above you."

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

Mistralton City
"Professor Juniperrrrr!"
"Why are you surprised, Professor? You did ask for a lift in my plane to cross Twist Mountain, since you can't reach Opelucid City by foot."
"Honestly! I can't tell if she's just laid back or if she's not paying attention to anything outside her head. The apple sure doesn't fall far from the tree. What's next? Are you coming to my Gym to challenge me? Or are you going to follow the professor to Celestial Tower and do some training? As long as I get to battle with a strong Trainer, I'm fine either way!"
Mistralton Gym
  • Before battle
"Hee-hee! I've been waiting for you. You're a tough Trainer who can face the wind and not get blown off your feet! I'm kinda excited about this battle! Why don't you and I have some fun?"
  • During battle (the first non-KO HP loss)
"When I think about how you might attack, it's like I'm walking on air!"
  • After sending out last Pokémon
"Never give up! To do so is an insult to the Pokémon who fight for you!"
  • Being defeated
"I won't forget this battle! I'm glad that I could fight against you!"
  • After being defeated
"You're an amazing Pokémon Trainer. My Pokémon and I are happy because for the first time in quite a while--about two years, I'd say--we could fight with our full strength. This is an official League Gym Badge. But this is just a stepping-stone."
"Wow, hot stuff! With that many Gym Badges, Pokémon up to Lv. 70 will obey you. Also, I want you to have this TM so that you'll always remember this Pokémon battle."
"I wonder what Professor Juniper is up to? I did promise her a ride in my plane…"
  • In front of the Gym, if the player didn't meet Professor Juniper at Celestial Tower yet
"Time for a quick hop in my plane! Hey, where did Professor Juniper get to? I wonder if she's still doing research in Celestial Tower? Mmm... Could I ask you to go get the professor? I've got to finish flight preparations at Mistralton Cargo Service!"
  • In front of the Gym, if the player already met Professor Juniper at Celestial Tower
"Time for a quick hop in my plane! Hey, where did Professor Juniper get to?"
"Hey! Professor! Wait up! Honestly… She just does everything at her own pace!"
"OK! You come, too!"
  • After visiting Lentimas Town
"Are you and your Pokémon well? Our battle together was a ton of fun. Whenever my Pokémon think of our battle, they want to start training again. It might be a cool idea to take my plane and go on a training trip together!"
Mistralton Cargo Service
"Looks like the Professor's reached a stopping point in her investigation. Ready to hop aboard my plane?"
No: "Roger! Come talk to me when you're ready."
"Are you ready to get aboard the plane? The sky is calling!"
Yes: "Hee-hee! Ready for takeoff!"
"Hee-hee! Looks like everyone's here! Finally, it's time to fly the Unova skies!"
Nature Preserve
"It's a hop, skip, and a jump by my plane! Want to go back to Mistralton City?"
No: "Roger! Talk to me when you're ready!"
Yes: "OK! Let's hit the runway!"
Memory Link - Taking it to The Next Level
  • Mistralton City - Present
(to player) "Hey, what's up? I know! Since you're here, I'll tell you a little secret!"
  • Flashback
(to Elesa) "Sure, what's up?"
"A PR makeover?"
"Uh... OK..."
"Elesa... Those are just a bunch of bad puns. Where's the joke?"
"Um... That's a little too sophisticated for me. Actually, it's really hard to understand."
"Sounds good! Hey as long as we're hanging out, surely you wouldn't mind having a Pokémon battle with me, right?"
"Oh, Elesa..."
  • End of flashback
"Please keep this a secret from Elesa, OK?"
Pokémon World Tournament
  • Before battle (first round)
"Why don't you and I have some fun?"
  • Before battle (second round)
"What I like is having fun! I love doing things like flying in the sky with Pokémon and bringing out their best! So, how about you and I have some fun?"
  • Before battle (final round)
"It's finally time for a showdown! That means the Pokémon battle that decides who's at the top, right? I love being on the summit! 'Cause you can see forever and ever from high places! So, how about you and I have some fun?"
  • Being defeated
"Being your opponent in battle is a new source of strength to me. Thank you!"
  • If the player is defeated
"Win or lose, you always gain something from a battle, right?"
  • After being defeated
"You're a pretty amazing Pokémon Trainer, aren't you? My Pokémon and I are happy, because for the first time in a while, we could fight with our full strength."
  • After winning
"I'm sure I'd have a great time if I could battle Winona, the Hoenn Gym Leader, up in the air!"
  • In the lobby, after the tournament
"I'm in top form, and I can see what my opponent is trying to do. And I still couldn't win! That's because Pokémon battling is really deep, and you're really great!"

Yearning makes you look up at the sky. To fly, go beyond yearning and take action!"

Skyla in the anime

Skyla debuted in Cilan Takes Flight!. Those who wished to challenge her were required to make reservations first. She would pick up to fifteen challengers at a time and have them participate in what she called an "Air Battle"—a battle that she played out in her head—instead of traditional battles. Skyla matched up her Pokémon against her opponent's and made decisions through their strengths and weaknesses. If she felt her team would have a disadvantage, she would give the challenger the Jet Badge. However, if she felt her team had the advantage, she would deny the challenger a Badge.

This method infuriated both Ash and Cilan. Not only did they disapprove of Skyla's methods, but her own grandfather and former Mistralton Gym Leader, Miles, disapproved as well. He then explained that she used to do traditional battles and was quite good. As a result, she received floods of challengers each day and that ultimately prevented her from having any time to pilot her plane. As a Gym Leader himself, it was simply unacceptable to Cilan and he wished to challenge her.

Skyla agreed to battle Cilan first since it would be the first time she battled another Gym Leader. She performed her "Air Battle" first and concluded that she was the winner. However, Cilan persuaded her to battle the traditional way. Like she had predicted in her head, she came out victorious in the real battle and thus did not feel she needed to change her methods at all.

In order to help make her realize the true meaning of being a Gym Leader, Ash battled Skyla himself in An Amazing Aerial Battle!. He eventually won with his Tranquill evolving into Unfezant, earning himself the Jet Badge. She then learned not to take air battles so lightly and promised to be a proper Gym Leader from then on.

She reappeared in flashbacks in Curtain Up, Unova League! and Survival of the Striaton Gym!. She also made a cameo appearance in the ending credits of Genesect and the Legend Awakened.

It appeared again in Ash's Gym battle against Skyla in An Amazing Aerial Battle!. Similarly to Cilan's Stunfisk, who had a type advantage, Pikachu fell to Swanna. Tranquill battled against Swanna and won thanks to an evolution into Unfezant and learning the move Aerial Ace.

Black & White chapter

Skyla debuted in Special Delivery. When an accident with the Driftveil Drawbridge prevented a package full of Prop Cases from making its way to the Pokémon Musical hall, White called the Mistalton Cargo Service to make an emergency delivery. Later that day, Skyla arrived and dropped the package down safely. As she flew off in her plane, Skyla wrote a message telling the public to enjoy the musical.

In Up in the Air, Skyla met with the other Unova Gym Leaders and Black at the Celestial Tower to discuss how to deal with Team Plasma. Noticing that Black looked uncomfortable, Skyla took him to her Gym so they could have a battle. Black's stress from learning that Team Plasma's actions could potentially lead to the Pokémon League closing down nearly led to his loss, but after regaining his resolve, he managed to defeat Skyla. Pleased with the results, Skyla left with the other Gym Leaders on her plane and lent her Swanna to Black so he could follow them.

In Museum Showdown, Skyla and the others arrived in Nacrene City, where they helped Lenora protect the Dark Stone from the Shadow Triad. Despite their teamwork, the Gym Leaders fell to the Shadow Triad's trump card, the Forces of Nature. Skyla and the others were kidnapped and taken to Team Plasma's base of operations, N's Castle.

In Dream a Little Dream, Caitlin attempted to find the missing Gym Leaders by using her Gothitelle's Psychic abilities. Though she managed to contact them, the Gym Leaders had their memories of the kidnapping erased, preventing Caitlin from tracking them. During Black's final Gym battle with Drayden, Caitlin relayed a message from the Gym Leaders to Black, giving him the confidence to win the battle and earn his final Badge.

In Cold Hard Truth, Team Plasma launched their attack on the Pokémon League, surrounding the building with N's Castle. As a form of mockery and display of Team Plasma's power, the Gym Leaders were hoisted on cross-like fixtures and displayed in front of the masses. Later, the Gym Leaders were freed by Shoko's Patrat, allowing them to assist in the battle against Team Plasma. After Team Plasma was defeated, Skyla and the others watched as N and Zekrom flew off to parts unknown.

Black 2 & White 2 chapter

In PS545, Skyla assisted Elesa with searching and retrieving Cheren's missing students, Blake, Hugh, and Leo. When Elesa found Leo and Hugh's sister at the Pokémon World Tournament construction site, Skyla flew down to pick them up, nearly running over Looker when he inadvertently ran in front of her plane.
