I know this pain it feels. It's lonely...

Shelly Citra is the true third gym leader of Reborn, who hands out the third gym badge. She specialises in the Bug-type and is fought at the Lapis Gym. She hands out the Cocoon Badge.

Although she is a Gym Leader, she is only 12 years old.

In the gameEdit

Spoiler warning!
This article contains plot details about events that occur later in the game.
Shelly is first encountered in the Lower Peridot Ward, where she helps a girl with her lonely Kricketot. If the player accepts the Kricketot, Shelly will thank the player before leaving.

Later on, after the death of Corey, Shelly is encountered again outside her Gym, witnessing the disturbing image of Corey's body. Victoria claims that Shelly is not in a good state to do Gym battles and suggests the player to check out other things before doing the Gym battle.

After the Gym battle with Shelly, the player teams up with Cain and her to help Charlotte, Anna, Noel, and Heather escape the City Orphanage. All of them escaped to the underground railnet before being kidnapped by Team Meteor.

Profile Edit

Seen on the Profiles channel after defeating the Beryl Gym
A special report from... the Investigation Squad!

Yo, Reborn City! What's up?! We're here with the Reborn Showdown giving you a look at the Leaders of the Reborn League! I'm your host, DJ Arclight, now on air!

Let's talk about Shelly, Leader of the Lapis Ward! She's a timid soul with a passion for reading and knowledge. In fact, it's rare to see the girl without her nose in a book, but it's paid off in spades. All that studying means that she knows just what kind of tune to have her Bug types play in any battle!

Shelly herself prefers double battles, using rain to cover her weaknesses and overwhelm her opponent. Her signature Pokemon, Illumise and Volbeat, are the prelude and finale each to her tactical advantages, so if you find yourself facing the bookworm, focus down her supports right away!

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!

Quotes Edit

  • "Hehe... Failing again..." -When sending out last Pokemon.
  • "...I'm still not good enough, huh..." -After defeat.
Gym battle speech
Pre-battle speech

[Shelly]: Hi, <player>! What did you think of my garden library?

[Shelly]: Sorry, I'm kind of a bookworm, hehe...

[Shelly]: Actually I just spent a lot of time reading so I could be good enough for my brother.

[Shelly]: He's so cool. He's a Gym Leader in Jhoto!

[Shelly]: I wanted to be just like him, so I came here to do this!

[Shelly]: But no matter what I did it was never enough. He always just pretended like I didn't exist.

[Shelly]: It's fine though, I know my place.

[Shelly]: Sorry, we kinda got off topic... So...

[Shelly]: So um... Good luck!

Pre-battle speech (Rematch)
[Shelly]: Um... I'm really sorry about last time.

[Shelly]: I probably just got lucky.

[Shelly]: Let's um-- Do you wanna try again?

[Shelly]: Good luck!

Post-battle speech

[Shelly]: Yeah... I probably will never live up to his expectations.

[Shelly]: But... But it's okay, you did really well.

[Shelly]: Um...

{player recieves Gym Badge}

[Shelly]: Um, since you have that badge now, Pokemon up to level 40 are probably gonna like you.

[Shelly]: It also lets you use the move Rock Smash outside of battle.

[Shelly]: And um... Um, oh! Here, take this, please?

{player recieves TM}

[Shelly]: That contains the move Struggle Bug... It's a pretty unique move in that it's both offensive and defesive.

[Shelly]: Just... call it my thanks for um, helping me deal with... everything.

Trivia Edit

  • Shelly's name is a word play on 'shell'.
  • Shelly is the sister of Bugsy, the Bug-type Gym Leader from the Johto Region.
  • Some of Shelly's Pokemon are named after people that are important to her.
    • In the Gym Battle, she has a Volbeat named after her brother.
    • Later on she has three other Pokemon, named after Cain, Anna, and Heather.
  • It is implied that her family ignoring her and an incident with Cal when she was younger lead to her timid personality.
