Melony is a character that was introduced in Generation VIII. She is the Gym Leader of Circhester and specializes in Ice-type Pokémon. She can only be fought in Pokémon Shield—in Pokémon Sword, her son Gordie replaces her as Gym Leader (though he specializes in Rock types instead of Ice types).

Appearance

Conceprt artwork of Melony.

Melony is a large, plump woman with fair skin, blue eyes, and lightly painted fingernails. She has voluminous light gray hair that falls to her hips, along with a grayish-blue streak and a single unruly bang. For clothing, she wears thick clothes suitable for cold weather. Her outfit consists of a white turtleneck sweater with the Ice-type and Gym Challenge symbols on it, a puffy white scarf, and a large white wool hat. She also wears blue-gray tights with white patterns and white shorts with a black design, her Gym number, and the Ice-type symbol on them. To complete her outfit, she wears long white boots and a white and black glove on her right hand.

Personality

True to her name, Melony is usually a sweet lady. In terms of her Gym, however, she seems rather calm and reserved. She trains in a strict way analogous to the Spartan method, and it's speculated that her battle style is influenced by a bicker she had with her son, Gordie.

However, Melony doesn't seem to take losing well, as when she is defeated in battle, she talks about how she apparently wants to crawl in a hole.

Etymology

Like most of the new characters in Sword and Shield, Melony is named after a plant. However, it may also be derived from "melody" (as Gigantamax Lapras has a music theme in its design) or "melancholy" (an emotion commonly associated with winter).

League Card entries

Regular League Card

Melony's regular 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's rare League Card, featuring her son Gordie.

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...

Trivia

  • Melony's uniform number, 361, can be read as "sa-mu-i," "samui" being Japanese for "cold".
  • Unlike some of the other characters from Pokémon Sword and Shield, Melony's in-game model differs in appearance from her official art. This is because her bust is extremely toned down and made much smaller in her official art.
  • Melony's outfit makes her somewhat resemble Frosmoth.
