Ortega (Japanese: オルティガ Ortiga) is the boss of Team Star's Fairy crew, the Ruchbah Squad. He specializes in Fairy-type Pokémon. He is the creator of the five different Starmobiles used by Team Star.

In the core series

Although Ortega is short-tempered and prone to snide remarks, he deeply cares about Team Star. He is also a skilled engineer and mechanic, building the five Starmobiles by himself.[1]

Ortega comes from a life of wealth; his family owns a major apparel company in Paldea. Despite this, he was bullied at the academy, so he bonded with the other Team Star bosses, who were also bullied. The former director of the academy, Mr. Harrington, is his piano teacher.
