Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.

★ Starfall Street ★

During the ★ Starfall Street ★ storyline, he disguises himself as a student named Clive (Japanese: ネルケ Nelke) to support the player and learn the truth behind Team Star's reputation and actions.

Victory Road

Clavell appears as part of Iono's Gym Test, where he hides somewhere in three locations, the first location being the street connected to the Levincia Gym building, the second location being the street connected to the Levincia Pokémon Center, and the third location being the Levincia Gym's battle court. The player must use the street surveillance cameras to seek him. Iono refers to Clavell as Mister Walksabout throughout the Gym Test. Clavell explains that he owes the Pokémon League "for many a past favor", which is why he agreed to help Iono with her Gym Test. For the first two locations, the player will always have to battle Iono's Gym Trainers, even if they found Clavell on their first try or not.


Clavell's team will always contain the final evolutionary form of the starter Pokémon with a type advantage to the player's chosen starter. This is likely the starter that remained with him after the player and Nemona chose their own starters at the beginning of the game. The remainder of his team will be based on his starter. Clavell also sends out a Pawmi during the games opening cutscene.
