Jinga (Japanese: ジンガ Jinga) is a recurring character in Pokémon Adventures. He is one of the Draconid people.
Jinga debuts in the Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire chapter. Along with Tomatoma and Renza, Jinga travels to the Sky Pillar after being alerted by the presence of an intruder. When they arrive, the three find Ruby exiting the area while riding on top of Latios. The three immediately begin attacking Ruby and demand to know why he trespassed on the Draconids' sacred ground.
When Ruby assumes the three are working alongside Zinnia, the three Draconids angrily deny the claim. Renza stops the fighting and reveals that Zinnia was chosen to be the new Lorekeeper to replace the former Lorekeeper, Aster, who is now deceased. Despite this, the three refuse to accept Zinnia as the new Lorekeeper as she doesn't have the same powers as Aster that are needed to stop the meteoroid from crashing into the planet. The conversation is interrupted by small pieces of the meteoroid falling down from the sky and into the sea. The three Draconids make their escape and bid farewell to Ruby.
Later at Meteor Falls, Jinga, Tomatoma, and Renza inform the village Elder about the sudden appearance of Groudon and Kyogre at Route 115. When they ask for permission to go see what is happening, the Elder just tells them to continue searching for Zinnia.
Later, Jinga travels to Sootopolis City alongside his fellow Draconids to assist with a plan to stop the meteoroid. When Ruby introduces the Elder to Sapphire, the Elder compliments Ruby and Sapphire's Gardevoir and Gallade duo and offers to give Sapphire their corresponding Mega Stones. When Sapphire hears the compliment, she gets embarrassed and slaps the Elder, much to Jinga's shock. Later, Jinga and the others use aerodynamic clouds to stand in the air as Ruby and Sapphire fly to space with Rayquaza. As Ruby and Sapphire use Mega Rayquaza to attack Grand Meteor Delta, Jinga and the others attack the meteoroid as well. The combined attacks successfully shatters Grand Meteor Delta into pieces.
