Biography

Games

Black and White

Clay first appears after Elesa asks him to lower the bridge that links Nimbasa and Driftveil. He later blames the player and Cheren for allowing Team Plasma into Driftveil. Since he blames them, he asks the player to find the Plasma members. They can be found in the Cold Storage. After finding Team Plasma, Clay comes in and arrests Team Plasma but they escape. After that, the player can challenge Clay.

He is later seen helping the player in N's Castle by holding off all of the Sages alongside the other Gym Leaders, excluding Cilan, Chili and Cress.

Black 2 and White 2

In Black 2 and White 2, he has redesigned his Gym. After the player defeats him. Clay will question Hugh on his rage towards Team Plasma. If Memory Link is used, it is shown that Clay interrupts a conversation between Burgh and Lenora about bones, by bringing a fossil for her to evaluate as he hopes to sell the piece at a high price. Unfortunately for Clay, the fossil was quite common, however with a rather unusual soil. This brings newfound hope for Clay to keep digging on his tunnel. Burgh questions Clay about what he thinks on bones. Clay replies that bones are what's left when one passes away. The three are seen satisfied with the many opinions on the subject.

Clay debuted in The Mighty Accelguard to the Rescue!, though it was a short cameo. When Ash arrived to challenge him, he respectfully declined because he said he had to check on a mine he owned and left the Gym.

He appeared again in the first part of Stopping the Rage of Legends! where Ash challenged him to a Gym Battle but declined yet again saying he needed Revival herbs.

Ash finally battled Clay in Battling the King of the Mines! and after a hard fought battle and the evolution of Ash's Roggenrola, Ash won battle and the Quake Badge.
