I'm surprised Clair was chosen myself, I don't remember the character ever being that popular. Whitney and Jasmine both seemed more popular as far as female Johto Gym leaders go.
Granted the Ash Gym battle with her was the best of all of Johto, and ironically enough Ash brought Charizard back to battle Clair way back then...
A bit late, but this is the thread to discuss it...so...
At least now we know that Druddigon belongs to Clair, or is at least a friend of hers. I hope there will be a 2 on 2 on battle with Iris and Clair, because I think the Dragonites would want to battle each other and I think Druddigon could be shown off in a battle as well.
I see Information about Clair popping in any moment from Pokemon Fan.

I want to start with XY as soon as is possible.
I have unpopular opinions: I prefer an older character returning but it isn't from the original trio. I was one of the few who liked both DP and BW. And I think that TR shouldn't leave in the anime.
Now that it seems that Alexa will travel with the main characters through Decolora, we have Iris' Dragonite, Alexa's Noivern, Clair's Dragonite and Druddigon as Dragon-types here. Then a Double Battle would be something nice to do in this episode (if Alexa is going to appear of course). If not, Iris could use her Axew but that would be... out of place in my opinion.
It doesn't matter if you aren't going to reach the goal, as long as you're still happy doing the trajectory.
Why didn't they do something like this back when HG/SS was being released. Sure, we got Lyra and some flashbacks of the Johto Gym Leaders, including Clair, but wouldn't it make much more sense to do it then rather than now?
I'm predicting either (a) Emlyn Morinelli is going to voice her in the dub, (b) Alyson Leigh Rosenfeld/current Joy will voice her, or (c) a new voice actor will voice her. Call it a hunch, but I think the former is most likely, as Emlyn seems to be TPCi's go-to VA for any roles previously done by Megan Hollingshead or Lee Quick in the 4Kids dub. Megan Hollingshead played Clair in the 4Kids dub.
That being said, Emlyn Morinelli's Officer Jenny was my favorite voice for Jenny besides Lee Quick: I was surprisingly disappointed in 4Kids' second VA Jamie Davyous Owens back in AG, and when it comes to VAs, my preferences usually lean towards them.
IT WILL BE A GOOD EPISODE I JUST KNOW IT.
