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]



"I'm Candela — Team Valor's leader! Pokemon are stronger than humans, and they're warmhearted, too! I'm researching ways to enhance Pokemon's natural power in the pursuit of true strength. There's no doubt that the Pokemon our team have trained at the strongest in battle! Are you ready?"
Team GO Rocket invasion (before battle)
"I've been hearing reports of some myterious characters near PokéStops. You should take charge and go investigate. Be careful, and make sure you're prepared for a battle!"
Team GO Rocket invasion (after battle)
"You opponent fled...and left their Pokémon behind. That really burns me up. There seems to be an ominous aura around the Pokémon, too. Could you try to catch it and see what's so different about this Pokémon?"'
Team GO Rocket invasion (after capture)
"I think we can help this Pokémon. Purification is a process that makes certain Pokémon stronger by tapping into their inner power. Let's give it a try."
