Melony (Japanese: メロン Melon) is the Gym Leader of Circhester's Gym, known officially as Circhester Stadium. She specializes in Ice-type Pokémon. She gives the Ice Badge to Trainers who defeat her. In Pokémon Sword, her son Gordie takes her place as Circhester's Gym Leader instead.

League Cards

This is a transcript of the back of Melony's League Cards in Pokémon Shield.

Normal League Card
"Melony has been a Gym Leader since she was in her twenties. She is also known as a very effective coach, but her coaching style is incredibly strict. Her battle style is fittingly severe and stoic, as well. Any Gym Trainers who manage to remain under Melony are sure to be powerful opponents. Thus many see Circhester Stadium as a major roadblock for Gym Challengers. Many quietly speculate that Melony's harsh battle style is due to a fight she had with her son."
Rare League Card
"Melony wanted Gordie to take over as the Gym Leader of Circhester, while Gordie wanted to dedicate himself to Rock-type Pokémon. The Pokémon battle between the two ended up dividing the whole town. Ever since that day, Melony and Gordie hardly ever see each other. That being said, Melony supposedly managed to become the first member of Gordie's fan club. Gordie seems to have a complicated expression in their photo together, but then again, that may just be one's own imagination..."
