Mela (Japanese: メロコ Meloco) is the boss of Team Star's Fire crew, the Schedar Squad. She specializes in Fire-type Pokémon.
In the core series
Among Team Star's bosses, Mela is the all-rounder, capable of fixing any problem the team faces. Despite her overbearing methods and her gruff, forceful impression, she is focused and able to complete anything she puts her mind to, earning her the trust of her teammates.
She is responsible for getting the Starmobiles powered up by evolving a large group of Charcadet. Currently, her sense of style isn't what she had when attending Naranja AcademyS/Uva AcademyV. Mela developed her outside appearance and personality after some girls in the academy were jealous of how cute she 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, which turns out to be a Pokémon Mela played with very often during her time attending school.
Mela awards the player with Team Star's Fire Badge and TM038 (Flame Charge) upon her defeat. Additionally, her defeat allows the player to craft the following TMs using the TM Machine:
Mela keeps her Pokémon in Quick Balls.
