"Meloetta's voice is beautiful, it sings out to the sea, like it feels as if it has been there before and wants to go back..."

"Well have you taken it there?"

"No. It is homesick over its home, which no longer exists. You'd be more likely to find a shiny Arceus."

Physical Description[edit]

A Meloetta in Aria Forme

Meloetta are small, lithe, distinctly feminine creatures that possess two forms. Though they resemble fey creatures, they are only distantly related to the fey. They have large, round, whiteheads and small black-cloaked bodies with tiny extremities. Their arms and legs are very slender and fragile-looking. Aria Forme Meloetta have green hair that resembles musical bars. Their eyes are blue-green, along with the round jewel on their foreheads. Pirouette Forme Meloetta have auburn hair that they usually stylize in a high bun. They have red eyes that match the color of their hair. In either Forme, Meloetta's middle section and eyes match its hair color. Very rarely, a Meloetta might have teal or deep pink hair instead of green or auburn.


Not much is known about the history of Meloetta. It is said to have come from an ancient civilization in the Unova region. This civilization, for reasons unknown, sunk to the bottom of the sea with only a large temple being the only remaining structure. Stories tell of an evil organization that captured a Meloetta and used a recording of it's special Relic Song to cause the temple to rise from the abyss, seeking an artifact that would summon the forces of nature incarnate. The organization had planned to use the powers of the forces of nature to take over the world, but was stopped by a young boy who had previous befriended the captured Meloetta. The forces of nature raged, but Meloetta soothed their rage by singing to them, and the abyssal ruins once more sunk to the bottom of the sea.


Melotta usually live in forests. Being as rare as they are, they have a habit of hiding away where nobody can find them. If one can earn the trust of a Meloetta, it may appear more in public singing and dancing for all to see. Since it's singing is so powerful, thanks to it's special method of singing, it's performances often affect people's emotions, though it's almost always in a positive manner. Many songwriters take inspiration from this mythical performer's singing when writing their works.

Meloetta Names[edit]
