I'd be better off if everyone just left me alone.

Aya LaRue is the seventh Gym Leader of the Reborn region, as well as the older sister of Cain. She specializes in the Poison-type and is fought at the Wasteland Hideout, where she hands out the Blight Badge, the fifth Gym Badge the player receives.

Spoiler warning!
This article contains plot details about events that occur later in the game.

Aya is first met at Wasteland Hideout right after Fern finishes his gym battle. Hardy also makes a visit to the gym in order to welcome Aya to the the job as gym leader. While Fern picks on Aya for being pathetic and weak, Hardy defends Aya and tries to give her self-esteem. During this conversation, it's noticeable that Aya is not interested nor glad to be the gym leader due to having the job dumped on her as Cain ran away from home. After the players beats Aya, she willingly gives the player the badge while Hardy still tries to cheer her up.

After beating Luna, Cain and the player enter Agate City where all seems barren. Cain spots Aya and Hardy sleeping in the center of town, with Cain starting to feel tired as well. Out of nowhere, Terra rescues the player, Cain, and a sleeping Aya and Hardy. Terra uses her giant hammer to hit Aya and Hardy towards the direction of Agate City, while guiding Cain and the player to Agate Circus.

While Hardy lands further ahead, Aya lands in the middle of the circus and is brought into the back room of the tent. Once she awakens, she's greeted by Cain, who although was the reason she was forced to take the job as the Poison-type gym leader, doesn't show any anger towards. Instead, Aya insists on finding out where Hardy landed. Talking to Aya or Cain after the discussion further shows that even though Cain ran away and left her with the gym, Aya doesn't show any resentment towards Cain. Rather, she is somewhat thankful as she was able to meet Hardy.

After Terra says that the PULSE which has the city in a sleeping curse is located on top of Ametrine Mountain, Hardy, Aya, and Cain decide to head towards Calcenon City to help the other gym leaders help fend off against Team Meteor while the player will head to Ametrine City.

While the player heads towards Ametrine City, they find Aya, Cain, and Hardy looking at an enormous ice blockage in the path, being unable to break through it (Which is later discovered to be a PULSE Avalugg). With Ametrine City being trapped at the top of the mountain without supplies, the group proposes treading to Calcenon City to get help. Before climbing the stairs to enter Calcenon City, the stairs are destroyed by a stray shot from a PULSE Clawitzer. Saphira, who is currently trying to combat the PULSE, meets up with the group on her Dragonite and tells them to enter through the eastern entrance. As the group is traveling, the bridge is destroyed by a stray shot from the PULSE Clawitzer, splitting the group up and allowing the player and Aya to team up.

While making their way towards Calcenon, the player and Aya will travel through caves and encountering Team Meteor members along the way. Eventually, they will reach the room where the PULSE Clawitzer is being controlled by Aster and Eclipse. After defeating them, Eclipse willingly turns off the machine and decides to quit Team Meteor. However, this statement is short lived as Sirius kills her with his Chandelure. As he turns to kill the player, Aya pushes the player out of the way to safety. Instead of killing Aya, Sirius decides to take her as a hostage and leaves with Aster.

Aya is later seen behind Team Meteor's barrier in Calcenon City being dragged around by Sirius and using her to bargain for the Ruby Ring.

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!

Quotes Edit

  • "Just finish it already, why don't you." -When sending out last Pokemon.
  • "...I lost... At least I won't have to deal with this again." -After defeat.
Gym battle speech
Pre-battle speech
[Aya]: Go ahead and take your place and let's get this over with.

[Fern]: I'm not sure who I want to lose more.

[Aya]: Do you just hate everyone by default, or what?

[Fern]: Nah, just you.

[Hardy]: Hey, lay off o' her, mate.

[Aya]: No, no! It's fine, it's perfectly fine. He's right. I'm not a good person. I shouldn't even be doing this.

[Hardy]: Hey, now's not the time to doubt yourself.

[Hardy]: Chin up. You're gonna rock this fight.

[Aya]: I'd be better off if everyone just left me alone.

[Hardy]: The challenger, <player>, faces the leader Aya in a 6 on 6 double battle!

[Aya]: I don't even really want to do this.

[Hardy]: Either competitor can make substitutions. The battle's over when all six of either trainer's Pokemon can no longer fight!

[Hardy]: And roll!

Post-battle speech
[Aya]: So I lost.

[Aya]: At least that means I don't have to deal with you again, I guess.

[Fern]: Cold.

[Fern]: I think I woulds preferred it if <player> had bombed after all.

[Fern]: Whatever. Later, losers!

{Fern exits area}

[Hardy]: Heyo, Aya, don't take a couple losses too hard, aye?

[Hardy]: It happens, and you put up a solid fight.

[Hardy]: <player> just rocked a little harder. All there is to it.

[Aya]: I don't care.

[Hardy]: C'mon, no need to be so distant about it.

[Aya]: No, you don't get it. I really don't care.

[Aya]: I never wanted this.

[Aya]: It was never my job.

[Aya]: But my stupid baby brother dumped this onto me.

[Aya]: Emphasis on the baby.

[Aya]: You know Cain, don't you, <player>?

[Aya]: What'd he say about us?

[Aya]: Does he hate us?

[Hardy]: Why would he hate you?

[Aya]: Ask him. I'm just not a good person, I guess.

[Aya]: But he hasn't talked to any of us since he ran away.

[Aya]: One day he just up-and-left.

[Aya]: Didn't say good bye.

[Aya]: Didn't even take his Pokemon with him.

[Aya]: HE was the one who was supposed to take over the poison gym.

[Aya]: So I'm stuck doing it.

[Aya]: Mom won't talk about him anymore.

[Aya]: And I'm not cut out for this.

[Hardy]: Hey, calm down already, a'rite? You're fine.

[Hardy]: Tell ya what, why don't I stick around for a bit and help you guys out with some stuff?

[Aya]: Why? I should just be fine.

[Hardy]: No, what you should do is give <player> their badge.

[Hardy]: Then you and I'll get stuff worked out, aye?

[Aya]: Sure.

[Aya]: This is the Venom Badge. Take it.

{player receives Gym Badge}

[Aya]: Pokemon up to level 50 will listen to you now.

[Aya]: And you can use the HM, Strength, outside of battle.

[Aya]: And I guess I'm supposed to give you this.

{player receives TM}

[Aya]: Sludge Wave hits every target, and has a chance to poison each of them. Go figure all I'm good for is spreading something toxic like that.

[Aya]: You can go now.

[Hardy]: <player>, I look forward to seein' you in my gum up in Agate City someday,

[Hardy]: Don't let me down, aye?

[Hardy]: Peace!

Trivia Edit

  • When put together with Cain, Aya's name is a word play on “iocane”, a fictional poison from The Princess Bride.
  • Aya used to grin in her vs sprite. This was changed in later updates
  • Aya is one of the four Reserve Gym Leaders to be introduced in the game, the others being Samson, Fern and Sandy.
  • It is suggested that Aya and Hardy are in a relationship, although both of them deny this.
  • 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.
