|"The Highflying Girl"|
|Debut||Pokémon: Black and White Versions|
Skyla followed in the footsteps of her grandfather, who was a legendary pilot, and she became a cargo pilot operating out of Mistaltron City. She flew cargo out of the city on a daily basis, and she was known for being nice to everyone. Skyla was also good friends with Professor Cedric Juniper, although he often beleagured her with trips to places such as Kanto and Sinnoh, and she began to grow weary of him making her transport people rather than cargo in the plane. She was also the gym leader of Mistaltron Gym and was excited by battles with skilled trainers. Her gym had a system of cannons that could safely fire people in one or two directions, and challengers had to navigate the cannons to reach her. She designed the cannons herself and considered them to be her pride and joy. Winners of her gym would earn the Jet Badge.
In Pokémon: Black and White Versions, Skyla had just returned from a flight and was talking with Cedric Juniper when Hilbert/Hilda arrived in town. Juniper recognized the trainer from his daughter's description and introduced Skyla to them. She anticipated a battle with Hilbert/Hilda, but first Skyla recalled seeing an injured Pokémon atop Celestial Tower and wanted to take care of it. She suggested that the trainer meet her atop the tower. Skyla was able to reach the tower and healed the Pokémon, at which point it flew away, then she waited until Hilbert/Hilda arrived. While they were there, Skyla asked Hilbert/Hilda to ring the bell which reflected the character of the person ringing it. From Hilbert/Hilda's ringing of the bell, Skyla was able to confirm that they were a good person, re-introduced herself and returned to her gym so that she could welcome them when they came to challenge her.
Hilbert/Hilda eventually reached her and defeated her. The battle made her very happy, and Skyla considered the trainer to be amazing because for the first time in a while they were able to fight with full strength. She then gave them the Jolt Badge (which she referred to as "hot stuff") as well as TM 62: Arobatics. She also left Hilbert/Hilda with a warning that she had spotted Team Plasma heading through Twist Mountain to Orricus City during her last flight. She was later defeated by both Cheren and Bianca. Bianca returned when she went around gathering all of the gym leaders for help when N's Castle arose at the Pokémon League. Skyla was among the ranks of the group of gym leaders who arrived at N's Castle and held off six of Team Plasma's Seven Sages while Hilbert/Hilda went ahead to confront N.
Skyla would later visit Cynthia at the villa in Undella Town during the summer, where she talked about the thrills of flying, swimsuits and her friendship with Elesa. She also mentioned how easy it was to fly her plane to Sinnoh, but that she preferred having her Pokémon fly her places.
She uses the following Pokémon in battle:
- Her name is a play on "skylark", which is a type of bird.
