Skyla appears in Pokémon Black and White as the Gym Leader of Mistralton City’s Gym. This Gym is the sixth to be challenged by the player. Trainers who defeat Skyla will receive the Jet Badge, along with TM62 (Acrobatics). She has a passion for flying and owns an entire airport. Her grandfather is said to be a legendary pilot.

She first appears in Mistralton as the player arrives in the town. There she is speaking with Cedric Juniper about using her plane to fly to a faraway region. Before battling the player, she says that she saw an injured Pokémon atop Celestial Tower to the north and that she must help it. After the player talks to her and rings the bell at the top of the tower, she heads back to the Gym. She also reappears at N’s Castle where she and the other Unova Gym Leaders hold off the Seven Sages. In the summer, she visits Cynthia at Undella Town, as do the other female Gym Leaders and Elite Four members.

Skyla is good friends with fellow Gym Leader Elesa. Between the events of Black and White and Black 2 and White 2, Elesa confided in her about changing her image.

In Black 2 and White 2, Skyla returns as a Gym Leader. The TM Skyla gives out remains the same. She aids the player and Professor Juniper in reaching Lentimas Town in order to access Opelucid City, due to the collapse of Twist Mountain. She flys her plane with them on board. After this, she is not seen again for the rest of the game, except in the Pokémon World Tournament.
