Through Pokémon the Series: XY, Clemont came up with several inventions in 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 introduced 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 exploded or failed to work, with only a few inventions actually proving successful. Despite this, Ash always became enthralled with Clemont's inventions, always saying, "Wow! Science is so amazing!" Sometimes there was an environmental circumstance that caused the invention to fail, but most of the time it was because the invention was not completely finished yet. Clemont tended to give either very obvious or very long and unpractical names to his inventions, often to the annoyance of Bonnie.

If the invention was a success, it means the invention did the job it was intended to do and did not malfunction or explode. If the invention was a failure, it completely failed to carry out the task it was intended to do, either by malfunctioning or blowing up. If the outcome of an invention is deemed imprecise, it means that the invention at least partially managed to carry out its task but still malfunctioned or blew up.

Clemontic Gear Omnidirectional Super Sensitive Tracking Dish.png The Omnidirectional Super Sensitive Tracking Dish (Japanese: 全方位対応型電波探知マシン Radio Wave Sensing Machine for All Directions) 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.

Clemontic Gear Exercise Gear.png The Exercise Gear (Japanese: 食べ過ぎ太り解消エクササイズギア Overeating Fat Reducing Exercise Gear) 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. He did plan on fixing it. An Appetite for Battle! ✘ Failure
Clemontic Gear Radio Wave Amplification Device.png The Radio Wave Amplification Device (Japanese: 電波増幅装置 Electric Wave Amplifying Device) can convert an Electric-type-Pokémon'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. Dedenne did pick up the waves, rendering the invention not a complete failure. A Jolting Switcheroo! ➖ Imprecise
Clemontic Gear Muscle Mass Magnifying Machine.png The Muscle Mass Magnifying Machine (Japanese: 筋肉強化マシン Muscle Boost Machine) consists of a pair of shoes with special springs attached to them.

It got stuck in a fence however, causing it to explode and getting it partially destroyed. Clemont tried to repair it, but left it behind when the group continued their search for Pikachu on their own. When Ash found Pikachu and he started to attack him, the robot 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! ➖ Imprecise

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. It was 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.

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. 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.

When he tried to increase its speed to get faster results, it promptly exploded. Clemont was shown to have created another one in A Keeper for Keeps?, when he showed his inventions to Lilia. Adventures in Running Errands! ✘ Failure
Clemontic Gear Rock Searcher Mark 1.png The Rock Searcher Mark 1 (Japanese: 岩探し1号 Rock Searcher No. 1) is an invention designed to locate rocks. Once a photo of an object, like a rock, is inserted into the machine and it is turned on, it will move around and automatically inspect any object similar to the one in the photo until it finds one that is exactly like the object looked for. Clemont used it when Ash and his friends were trying to help Trevor find Moltres on Mt. Molteau. While the group waited for Trevor to take photos of other local Pokémon, the machine found the rock it was looking for. Team Rocket, who had been following the machine to find Moltres first, got irritated of the alarm sound it made to signal its success, and Jessie kicked it, causing it to explode and be partially destroyed. Once the group arrived, they thought that the machine exploded on its own (even though Team Rocket caused it to happen) and the malfunctioning machine started chasing them until it fell off from a cliff and fell into the magma of the volcano, completely destroying it.

Clemontic Gear Living Thing Finder Mark 2.png The Living Thing Finder Mark 2 (Japanese: 生き物見つけた君2号 Gotcha-Living-Being-kun Mark 2) is a similar invention to the Body Detecting Radar Bot Mark 3. This invention was designed to find the nearest living thing that wasn't a human or any Pokémon the group owned, consisting of a small pod with radars in place of the extendable legs. Clemont used it in order to find a timid Eevee that Serena intended to befriend and catch. However, although the sensor could be narrowed down to Pokémon size, it still couldn't differentiate between different Pokémon species.

Like that invention, it violently wakes up the user and has a similar design, though with four bells instead of one. Instead of using it to wake up someone else, Clemont now however used it to wake up the group when they went to sleep. Unfortunately, it exploded immediately upon going off; but since the group was searching for Pikachu and Squishy at the time and thus away from camp, no-one was in the blast radius, and the sudden bang ended up snapping Pikachu, Squishy, and Meowth out of the bizarre shared nightmare they were trapped in. Although it hadn't survived a single use, Ash noted that it still would have woken the group up. Dream a Little Dream from Me! ➖ Imprecise
Clemontic Gear Track Down Squishy For Certain Mark 1.png The Track Down Squishy For Certain Mark 1 (Japanese: 絶対にプニちゃんを見つけるぞ1号 I'll Find Puni-chan For Sure Mark 1) is an invention designed to detect what were in fact Zygarde signals, collect the Zygarde Core, and bring it back to Ash and his friends. Clemont used this invention to help find the missing Squishy. However, Clemont wasn't fully aware of what Squishy was, and so didn't know to program the machine to differentiate between Zygarde Core and the Zygarde Cells that Squishy controls. As a result, it tried to collect the first group of Cells it detected, which unfortunately were resting on a sleeping Team Rocket. Angry at the contraption for waking her up only to insistently and mindlessly harass the group, Jessie ended up kicking it. As a result, it returned to Clemont half-collapsed, having failed to procure even a single Zygarde Cell, acquisition of which might have given Clemont insight into what it was he was searching for.
