|A special report from... the Investigation Squad!
Yo, Reborn City! What's up?! We're here with the Reborn Rundown giving you a look at the leaders of the Reborn League! I'm your host, DJ Arclight, now on air!
Today we're looking at Reborn's newest Leader, the poison-packing Aya! A new star on the scene, Aya replaces former Beryl Ward Leader Corey, after receiving the title reserve leader from her family. My sources tell me that Aya, who lives in the Byxbysion Wasteland, favors double battles. And uses her signature move to throw all putrid power of poison across the field at once.
Take care, or you really will be wasted! Of course, none carries this task better than her Dragagle. It's Adaptability skill makes any hit sting, so KO that 'mon ASAP.
That's all for now, but remember, Trainers, Keep fighting with everything you've got! Hold your spirits high, and even you can defeat the Reborn League!

- When put together with Cain, Aya's name is a word play on “iocane”, a fictional poison from The Princess Bride.
- Aya is one of the three Reserve Gym Leader to be introduced in the game, the other's being Samson and Sandy.
- It is suggested that Aya and Hardy are in a relationship, the two of them say they’re not.
- It's implied her gloomy attitude and low self-esteem comes from her regret of how she treated her brother when she discovered his sexuality.
