Candela (Japanese: キャンデラ Candela) is the leader of Team Valor (Japanese: チームヴァーラー Team Valor) in Pokémon GO. Team Valor is researching Pokémon strength, and is represented by Moltres. Team Valor Trainers believe that their Pokémon are the strongest because they train to naturally enhance a Pokémon's power in search of true strength.

She is one of Professor Willow's assistants, along with Spark and Blanche. She is the oldest of the three team leaders.[1]
