I AM TERRA, HEAR ME RAWWWWRRRR!!!!!
Terra "M3G4T3RR4" Pierce is the fourteenth Gym Leader of the Reborn region, as well as one of the members of the Agate Triumvirate, along with Samson and Ciel. She specializes in the Ground-type and is fought in the Glitch World, where she hands out the Gravity Badge, the twelfth Gym Badge the player receives.
Terra can seem very obnoxious and her manner of speaking can be difficult to comprehend. She is incredibly smart with computers, able to create another world inside the computer. Terra also tends to flirt with Samson and Ciel when she's off work. Despite her attitude, Samson and Ciel do see her as a friend somewhat.
In the game Edit
Terra is first encountered in Agate City, by almost smashing Cain with a giant hammer. She claims its an accident and explains there is a sleeping spell over the city, and anyone who sleeps here won't wake up. She then rescues the player, Cain, and a sleeping Aya and Hardy, which she does by means of hitting you over the mountain with her signature giant hammer.
At Agate Circus, the Ringmaster reveals that Terra is a gym leader and part of the Agate Triumvirate (along with Ciel and Samson). Ciel remarks how Terra is good with computers, and can detect the signal over Agate City to hopefully disable it. After the player beats Samson in a gym battle, Terra says that the PULSE which has the city in a sleeping curse is located on top of Ametrine Mountain, before promptly vanishing.

It is later revealed that Terra is part of Team Meteor and in fact lied about the PULSE's location. She gets cornered in Agate Circus and escapes into a computer, after which player is forced to hunt her down and fight her for the Gravity Badge in the Glitch World. After the player defeats her and leaves the Glitch World, Samson turns off and restarts the computer she was in while she was inside, hoping she gets bored.
Terra is from Labradorra City and also has a personal connection with Lin - according to Arclight, as well as a couple that are implied to be Terra's parents, she used to be quiet and shut-in before she joined Agate Circus.
Gym Battle Edit

|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!
She's hearty, she's hyper, and she's abso-freaking- lutely insane-- Terra, the Ground Gym Leader, is up to play! With a personality like an earthquake and a type to match, anyone who's met her-- is probably traumatized.
However, I wanted to find out what's really behind that energetic persona, so I did some digging to find out. From the records I found, it looks like Terra was a fairly average girl at one point, having been raised in the Beryl Ward. School reports say she was very shy, and seldom socialized, and took a natural interest in computer science. One day, however, she ran away from home for one reason perhaps she only knows...
...and was next known applying for a job at the Agate Circus with her zany energetic persona! Just what happened to her between the time she left home and the time she joined the circus? Call me crazy-- Actually, call her crazy, but I'm not sure I want to find out.
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!

- Terra's name means 'Earth' in Latin. It may also be a reference to a "terabyte", which would explain her connection to computers.
- All her Pokémon have nicknames based off of her personality. Her Nidoking, however, is nicknamed Giovanni.
- When asked about her backstory, she tries to pass off Batman's backstory as her own; before her battle with the player, however, she tries to pass off that of Luke Skywalker as her own.
- Shade and Terra are the only gym leaders with unique music during their gym battle.
- Terra seems to be unbound by many of the game's in-universe rules, as evidenced by her ability to travel upside down, wield and conceal on her person an unreasonably large hammer and include emoticons and leetspeak in her dialogue.
