Biography

Games

Her Gym badge is called the Rising Badge and the TM she gives the player after beating her contains Dragonbreath. In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, it is Dragon Pulse. In her gym, the trainer must use the HM Strength to push the boulders into the lava, eventually making a path to Clair. In her Pokémon HeartGold SoulSilver gym, the player must rotate and move a platform over a series of lava pits. In both the original and the remake games, Clair refuses to give the Rising Badge even after the player beats her. She requires that the player goes to the Dragon's Den in order to earn the badge. In Pokémon Crystal, she still refuses to give the badge, but the player goes to the Dragon's Den to pass the Dragon users' challenge instead. After that, she gives the badge, scared of what will happen if Lance was informed.

Clair's Gym title is "The Blessed User of Dragon Pokémon".

Clair in Pokémon: Master Quest

Ash and co. encounter Clair when they encounter both her Dratini and Gyarados. The Dratini was under her protection and she didn't want anyone to hurt it while it went through the process of shedding its skin. Clair has also proven to be quite agile when she was swinging from branch to branch to try and catch up with Team Rocket like a pro gymnast. When Dratini was about to be shocked Clair blocked it. This act moved Dratini so much it evolved into Dragonair who helped her beat Team Rocket. Later on it was revealed that she and Liza from Charific Valley have been friends since they were girls. After the ordeal involving Team Rocket and a Dragonite Guardian, The Gym Battle between Ash and Clair resumed, with Clair losing a well-fought battle and gave him the Rising Badge. She helped Ash look for all eight of his badges after he lost them but they managed to find them. She said goodbye to Ash and co. and wished Ash luck in the Johto League.

Trivia

  • Clair is Lance's younger cousin.
  • In Pokémon Crystal, she has a grandfather who lives in the Dragon's Den.
  • Clair is the only gym leader to not have Hoenn or Sinnoh-based Pokémon in her rematch roster in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver.
  • In Pokémon Adventures, she seems to dislike and fear her cousin Lance (in the manga, he's her brother). But, in the HGSS season, she shows care for him by protecting him from Silver, who was also trying to find him.
  • Clair is extremely prideful. This is evident by how she refuses to give the player a gym badge after defeating her, and doesn't believe the player passed the test her grandfather gives to him.
  • In her original Generation II artwork and the Master Quest season of the Anime Clair's hair was pale blue and the sides of her hair pointed downward. In addition to that her outfit was black. In her updated Generation IV artwork and in "An Egg Scramble" her hair is sky blue, the sides of her hair pointed upward and her outfit is blue as well.
  • She and Iris are both female gym leaders who specialize in Dragon-type Pokémon.
    • They are also the final Gym Leaders in their respective regions (though the player faces Iris only in Pokémon White Version).
  • Clair is the second Gym leader to reappear in her HeartGold/SoulSilver attire. The first being Jasmine in Four Roads Diverged in a Pokémon Port!.
