Spoiler warning: this article may contain major plot or ending details.

She is responsible for getting the Starmobiles powered up by evolving a large group of Charcadets. Currently, her sense of style isn’t what she had when attending Naranja AcademyS/Uva AcademyV. Her outside appearance and personality were changed after some girls in the academy were jealous of how cute Mela was, which stopped them from picking on her.

When talking to the player, she doesn’t like showing her true nature. A Charcadet will later run up to Mela, turns out he used to be a Pokemon Mela played with very often during her time attending school.

In addition to the Star Badge, Mela gives out TM038 (Flame Charge) after defeating her.


Mela keeps her Pokémon in Quick Balls.
