Clemont is a Gym Leader of the Kalos region. He likes science and inventing new devices. He is the older brother of Bonnie.

Appearance

Concept artwork of Clemont.

Clemont is a short and skinny young boy with fair skin, gray eyes (in contrast to his anime counterpart, who has blue eyes), and messy medium-length bright yellow hair with a lightning-bolt shaped tuft on top. Outfit-wise, Clemont wears clothes that make him resemble a stereotypical geek or nerd. His outfit consists of large round glasses which obscure his eyes, black shoes with white soles, and a yellow-collared skin-tight blue jumpsuit with yellow stripes on the knees and bottom cuffs. Additionally, Clemont also sports a backpack-like cybernetic contraption (which he invented himself) on his back. The contraption has two robotic extensions that Clemont uses to absorb solar and lunar energy - naturally, one appears to resemble the sun, while the other resembles the moon. The white moon-like contraption (known as the "Aipom Arm") is also used to grip and hold objects like an extra hand.

Personality

Clemont, despite being very young, is extremely intelligent with a passion for science, and is a child prodigy inventor. He is a very kind and respectful person who loves new challenges and gracefully accepts defeat, even thanking the player for showing him their battling skills. He isn't interested in becoming the most powerful trainer, but he loves to learn from the trainers he battles. He enjoys spending his time with his Pokémon. He also cares a lot about his little sister, Bonnie.

Etymology

The name Clemont comes from "lemon" as the acidic properties of lemons means they can be used to make simple batteries. It may also derive from "inclement," as in "inclement weather," which may refer to lightning storms.

His Japanese name, Citron, it literally "citron", French for lemon. It also contains "tron," a suffix commonly used in the names of machines.

Biography

Clemont is the leader of the Lumiose City Gym within the Prism Tower. His little sister, Bonnie, assists him in the Gym. Upon defeat, he will present the player with the Voltage Badge, as well as the TM for Thunderbolt. He will also appear at the Battle Chateau and challenge the player once again as a high-ranking Marquis.

Trivia

  • Clemont's Japanese leader title is "The inventor lighting up the world", like his English title.
  • Despite being very young, Clemont is already a Gym Leader.
    • He shares this trait with Allister. However, Allister is younger, and is currently the youngest Trainer.
  • The contraptions on Clemont's back are similar in appearance to Shuckle (or the hand of an Aipom) and Heliolisk.
  • Clemont, design-wise, resembles Doctor Octopus from the Spider-Man series or Doctor Clash from the F-Zero series with the extra robotic arms he wears (the latter moreso, with both Doctor Clash and Clemont having two robotic arms rather than Octopus's four, both having messy hair, and both wearing glasses) and Jason from the comic strip FoxTrot, both being young, nerdy boys who typically wear light blue, have blond hair, and have opaque glasses. Interestingly, Pokémon itself was referenced (rather in depth, honestly) by Jason in one FoxTrot strip close to the release of Pokémon Black and White, as he, while playing baseball with his father, pretended the ball he was throwing was a Poké Ball containing a Gigalith. In addition, Clemont resembles Digi-Boy from the F-Zero series somewhat, both being young male inventors with round, opaque glasses and messy hair associated with the colors blue and yellow in sci-fi or sci-fi-esque video game series owned or at least partially owned by Nintendo.
    • In addition, his blue and yellow color scheme resembles that of the European Union flag (of which France, Kalos' inspiration, is a member state) and, by extension, that of FEISAR, the team representing the EU in the Wipeout series of futuristic racing games.
  • Concept art for the Rotom Dex exists with Clemont holding an uninhabited Rotom Dex, implying he invented it.
