Malva (Japanese: パキラ Pachira) is an antagonist and member of Team Flare of the manga series Pokémon Adventures.


Malva, unlike in the games and anime, is much more villainous. She is shown feeling little compassion for others.


Malva debuts in the X & Y chapter as a newscaster reporting the events of what happened in Vaniville Town. Instead of mentioning the chaos caused by Xerneas and Yveltal, she reports the destruction was caused by a large explosion. Another broadcast is later seen by Alexa, who wonders why the media is ignoring the Legendary Pokémon. Malva first appears in person talking to a colleague of hers. She notes that after a recent movie debut, Diantha has decided to go on hiatus. As she had not done this in a while, Malva finds Diantha's behavior suspicious and decides to investigate Diantha to find out why she decided to do so.

Afterward, Malva returns to the Team Flare Secret HQ to resume her duties as a member of Team Flare. After chastising a Grunt for losing a clipboard containing information about the various Mega Stones located in Kalos, Malva digs in a container filled with the Poké Balls of Pokémon that were gathered after the Vaniville Town incident. Upon finding a box containing a Pokédex and a Fennekin she decides to keep the Fennekin for herself, but crushes the Pokédex under her heel. She then forces Aliana to return the Pyroar she had been borrowing from her, much to Aliana's frustration. Afterward, Malva borrows Celosia's Aegislash and uses it to control several Sky Trainers to attack X and his friends. Although Aegislash is defeated, Malva praises Aegislash's ability to control a large number of people due to Celosia's training. Celosia worries that they need to obtain X's Mega Ring so that Lysandre can use its Key Stone to Mega Evolve his Gyarados, but Malva points out that several other Mega Evolution Successors are currently on the run. Malva then decides to chase after the other Successors to obtain one of their Key Stones.

During Team Flare's operation to move the tree form of Xerneas to Team Flare's base, Malva watches the operation alongside Celosia and Essentia. They use the kidnapped residents of Vaniville Town as forced labor via mind control from Celosia's Aegislash. When X and his friends arrive, they attack Team Flare to rescue their neighbors and family members. X and Y are easily defeated and captured, allowing Celosia to try and finish them off. Just as she attacks X, Gurkinn, Korrina, and Diantha come to the rescue with their Mega-Evolved Pokémon. Malva immediately reveals herself and takes on Diantha alone while trapping her inside a Magic Room. Now isolated from the outside world, Malva reveals to Diantha her true nature as a member of Team Flare and begins attacking the Champion. Malva explains to Diantha that she is simply stalling for time while Team Flare manages to move Xerneas to their base. Although Y and Shauna attempt to break the barrier from the outside, their attempts fail and eventually the Magic Room sinks into the ground.

The victor of the battle is unknown, but Malva returns to the base after Xerneas has been successfully moved. She fashions the Key Stone Celosia stole from Korrina into a Mega Ring for Lysandre to wear as he prepares to begin absorbing Xerneas's energy to power the ultimate weapon. Later, X and his friend infiltrated the Team Flare Secret HQ in order to stop the ultimate weapon from being unleashed. Although he was unable to stop the weapon from being activated, X's battle against Lysandre caused Xerneas to awaken from its slumber. Xerneas allied itself with X and his friends and helped them escape back to the surface.

Xerneas later joined Y's team and teamed up with her to destroy the ultimate weapon, but was stopped by Malva, who appeared riding on top of Yveltal. Malva reveals that when Xerneas was still dormant, Yveltal slept underneath it in its cocoon form. When Malva went underground during her battle with Diantha, she found the sleeping Yveltal and obtained it. Malva attempted to have Yveltal attack the heroes, but Xerosic stops her by revealing that Lysandre ordered a ceasefire. Although Team Flare blamed the ultimate weapon's blast on X's friends and the Gym Leaders, their efforts did not fool every person in the region. To lay low from the public view, Team Flare relocated to the Pokémon Village.

After X and his friends learn where Team Flare went into hiding, they travel to the village to stop the villains for good. On the way, Xerosic attacks X and his friends with a trap. Diantha manages to escape from the trap and goes ahead to the village while the others deal with Xerosic. Before she can get there, Diantha is intercepted by Malva, who proceeds to attack Diantha. Diantha blocks Malva's attack, only to find that Malva managed to snatch her Mega Charm away. Malva then takes to the skies, forcing Diantha to follow after her with her Gardevoir.

The chase takes them to the skies above the Pokémon Village. When Y sees the two fighting, she helps Diantha by having Fletchy burn Malva's hand to force her to drop the Mega Charm. Although Y attempts to assist with battling Malva, Diantha refuses her offer and chooses to battle against Malva alone. After some time, Malva witnesses Lysandre as he is being defeated. This distraction allows Diantha's Gardevoir to get a hit on Talonflame, which causes it to drop Malva. Diantha attempts to help Malva by reaching out with her hand, only for Malva to reject the offer by slapping her hand away. Malva reaches out to Lysandre as he falls to the ground after Zygarde disappears, causing both to land onto the sharp rubble below. As he lays in a pool of blood, Lysandre weakly asks the unconscious Malva why the ultimate weapon has not been fired yet. Afterward, the remaining Elite Four members and Diantha carry Malva's unconscious body away.
