Who is Mela in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet introduce a new region full of new Pokémon, characters, challenges, and more. This includes a new enemy team and its members. One of them is Mela, but it may make you wonder who Mela is in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Mela is the leader of Team Star’s fire squad in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Team Star is the rival team and is made up of rebellious students. Mela can be seen in the Seek Your Treasure trailer for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet battling atop a big truck with her Torkoal.

 

Who is Team Star’s fire squad in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?

Team Star is divided into smaller teams, a first for the Pokémon series. Mela is the leader of Team Star Fire Crew, which specializes in fire-type Pokémon. The uniform color of Team Star members appears to change depending on which crew they are part of, with Fire Crew sporting orange.

The trailer also showed members of Team Star dressed in blue, which may suggest a water crew. But we know for sure that Fire Crew will be in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet and they’ll bring the heat.
