Meloetta (Japanese: メロエッタ Meloetta) is a dual-type Normal/Psychic Mythical Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

While it is not known to evolve into or from any Pokémon, Meloetta has a second Forme activated by using the move Relic Song in battle. Its original Forme, Aria Forme, will then become the Normal/Fighting-type Pirouette Forme.

Meloetta was leaked on a poster of the fifteenth Pokémon movie, Kyurem VS. The Sword of Justice, on February 26, 2012, and it was officially revealed by Oha Suta on March 1, 2012.

Biology

Meloetta is a Pokémon that has a femininely anthropomorphic figure with musical bar-style streaks in its hair, quarter notes (crotchets) (♩) for its arms and hands and pupil-less eyes resembling whole notes (semibreves). It has a jewel on its forehead and a black headpiece that seems to be shaped like a treble clef which doubles as an attached microphone such as one often used by singers. Its ovular head seems to be ⅓ its body's height and about half its height in width. In its Aria Forme, Meloetta has light blue eyes and flowing, wavy hair with light-blue ovals that resemble whole notes. In its Pirouette Forme, it has auburn hair that seems to be stylized in a high bun and red eyes. In either Forme, its midriff and eyes match its hair. It is a gender-unknown species.

According to artists in Unova, Meloetta's beautiful music and dance inspired many works of art, music, and songs. This made the Pokémon popular among both musicians and dancers.

Meloetta is the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Relic Song, which allows it to change between its Aria Forme and its Pirouette Forme. In its Aria Forme, Meloetta can sing beautiful songs. While in its Pirouette Forme, Meloetta can perform graceful dances. In its Aria Forme, it is a dual-type Normal/Psychic-type Pokémon; in its Pirouette Forme, it is a dual-type Normal/Fighting-type Pokémon. It reverts to Aria Forme when switched out or when the battle ends. Like many other Legendary and Mythical Pokémon, Meloetta is capable of temporarily turning invisible.

Meloetta debuted in With a Little Help from My Friends, where it was attracted to the flute music made by Bianca. After sneaking aboard the Battle Subway train, Meloetta found its way to Café Sonata, only to be attacked by a group of wild Vullaby. After finding out what happened, White protected Meloetta while Bianca decided to take a guitar and play with Meloetta in place of the Guitarist that was injured in the chaos.

With her skills in music, Bianca helped Meloetta remember the Relic Song that it had long since forgotten. Meloetta uses the attack to transform into its Pirouette Forme and defeat the wild Vullaby group. Afterward, it said its goodbyes to White and Bianca and left.

Trivia

Origin

Meloetta may be based on a muse, a goddess in Greek mythology with the ability to inspire artistic creation. Meloetta may also be seen as a personification of music since its design has multiple references to musical notation: its headpiece resembles a stylized treble clef, its fingerless hands and slim arms are shaped after musical notes, and its hair resembles staff lines with bar lines.

Meloetta's Aria Forme resembles a typical singer, with the black headpiece acting like a headset microphone.

Meloetta's Pirouette Forme resembles a ballerina wearing a tutu, with its "hair" curled up in a bun, or possibly the headdress worn by Nefertiti in her namesake sculpture. This Forme also has elements of Spanish Flamenco dancers.

The guitarist who teaches Meloetta Relic Song in the Generation V games mentions that it lost its red shoes at the same time that sorrow darkened the world and it lost the song it had danced to. This may be a reference to the Hans Christian Andersen fairy-tale The Red Shoes.

Name origin

Meloetta may be a combination of melody, pirouette (a type of movement in ballet), and the Italian feminine diminutive suffix -etta.

Aria is a term now used almost exclusively to describe a self-contained piece for one voice usually with orchestral accompaniment, and is commonly used in opera.

A pirouette (French for to whirl) is a controlled turn on one leg, starting with one or both legs in plié and rising onto demi-pointe (usually for men) or pointe (usually for women).
