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

Shelly Citra is the fourth Gym Leader of the Reborn region. She specializes in the Bug-type and is fought at the Lapis Gym, where she hands out the Cocoon Badge, the third Gym Badge the player receives.

She is timid and gets paranoid easily, but is fairly nice to people. Shelly is also very intelligent and likes to read, even having her own gym a bookcase puzzle. She went to Reborn City to become a gym leader in the hopes to get her brother to notice her. Shelly is friends with Heather, she also used to be friends with Cal, but broke apart after a certain incident.

In the gameEdit

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 the City Orphanage before doing the Gym battle. The player later comes back to challenge Shelly in a gym battle.

After the player goes to meet Cain for the key to Byxbysion Wasteland at Beryl Ward's graveyard, they find Heather watching them, before declaring that she doesn't need any help and flying towards the Lapis Ward to meet her friend. At the Lapis Gym, it's seen that her friend is Shelly but after she feels ganged up on, leaves the gym and is taken up by Dr. Sigmund Connal due to her being underage and without a guardian. The player, Cain, and Shelly will siege the orphanage (the player will team up with Shelly during this time) and Charlotte, Anna, Noel, and Heather escape the City Orphanage. All of them escape to the Underground Railnet, where once the player defeats Shade and activates the locked doors, are captured by Team Meteor.

After the player obtains strength, they team up with Cain and raid Yureyu Building and once again escape through the Railnet, making their way to the Chrysolia Region. The group takes refuge at Tanzan Cove, where they meet up with Laura and Saphira, but soon after attacked by Team Meteor and Dr. Sigmund Connal. After the player raids Team Meteor's hideout, Saphira takes the group to Calcenon City and lets the player travel alone.

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

Shelly is not seen again until Calcenon City, where upon clearing the path of the giant glacier, starts making her way with the player to find Heather at Ametrine City. Upon stumbling into a strange house with a beta version of the PULSE machines, Shelly will find a battle pass for the player to challenge Terra as well as a diary by Luminia which discusses the origin of how ZEL was born out of the 3 subconsciousness of Zero, Luminia, and Evelynn.

Upon finishing the diary, Blake will tell the player and Shelly to get out of the house and after being asked if he has seen Heather, he says he hasn't and quickly leaves. Shelly leaves the house and asks a kid outside if he knows where the Guardian Angel lives, which he gives the name Blake.

Making their way to Blake's apartment, Shelly asks where Heather is, to which Blake dismisses the importance of her being found. However, he then gives the option of revealing Heather's location and HMX5 Waterfall in exchange for the Ruby Ring. The player then has the choice of giving the ring or keeping it for oneself.

Split Plot Split!

Depending on which object you pick, the events during Ametrine City will be different.

Give the Ruby Ring Edit

If the player gives Blake the ring, they are given HMX5 Waterfall and told a hint that the secret entrance is in the apartment somewhere in the apartment [NOTE: You are given HMX5 Waterfall later regardless if you choose to give Blake the ring].

Upon finding the secret entrance, Shelly and the player go to the shed where they find Heather inside, however Cal arrives and Shelly is scared off by him due to Cal's past anger towards her. Cal releases Heather, who after some explanation takes off to stop Team Meteor while Cal goes on ahead to stop them.

The player then makes their way up the mountain with Shelly, where upon reaching a large flight of stairs, is pushed down and caught by Cal who very briefly tries to makeup with her. Shelly stays behind to to think about what just happened, and the player and Cal team up to climb the rest of the mountain up until Blake pushes Cal off. The player then reaches the peak of the mountain and fights Blake.

Keep the Ruby Ring Edit

Finding out that the player has the ring, Blake will steal the ring and make a getaway, leaving Heather's location a mystery. However, when the player steps outside of the building, they are greeted with a newly blue-dyed-hair Cal, who apologizes to Shelly for losing his temper in the past due to his drive to surpass his brother Blake and makes amends with Shelly. Cal then tells the player that Blake's apartment has a secret passage and takes off to stop Team Meteor.

After finding the secret door, the player and Shelly make their way to a shed with Heather inside. Setting her free, Shelly and Heather make up with one another and take to the sky to catch up with Blake. The player then teams up with Cal and Shelly on their pursuit after Blake up Ametrine Mountain. Before reaching the peak, the player is stopped by Aster in attempt to stop them (Due to the player wasting slightly more time from refusing Blake). After defeating Aster, he gives the player TMX Waterfall and bids farewell. Upon reaching the peak, Shelly is defeated in battle and Blake fights the player.


After the battle ends, Cal and Heather fly by and attack Blake, stealing the ring in the process. Blake makes his escape, telling the group that there was never a signal making Agate City fall asleep on the mountain and Heather gets her Ruby Ring back. After Heather and Shelly decide to go return the food supplies to the town people, Cal discusses that the person (Terra) who tipped them off about a signal was lying, and gives the player a lift back down.

Shelly goes back to Calcenon City only to discover Anna and Noel went missing. She then goes with Cain to find them, only for the two of them to also go missing.

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 Johto!

[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.

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!

Trivia Edit

  • Shelly's name is a word play on 'shell', another name for an exoskeleton, which protects the body of some bugs.
  • Shelly is the sister of Bugsy, the Bug-type Gym Leader from the Johto Region. Its hinted that he doesn't pay attention and neglects her.
  • Some of Shelly's Pokemon are named after people that are important to her.
    • In her Gym Battle, she has a Yanmega named Heather and a Volbeat named after her brother.
    • Later on, she has four other Pokemon named after Cain, Anna, Noel and Cal.
    • She then later has a Pokemon named after the player (with the same respective gender).
  • It is implied that her family ignoring her and an incident with Cal when she was younger lead to her timid personality.
