Roggenrola (Japanese: ダンゴロ Dangoro) is a Rock-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Boldore starting at level 25, which evolves into Gigalith when traded.

Biology

Physiology

Roggenrola is a Rock-type Pokémon with a rocky, blue-and-brown body. It has a hexagonal, yellow artifice in the center of its body, and a black hexagon within the feature. The feature resembles an eye, but it is actually an ear. Roggenrola have brown, upraised rocky features above their body, and similar brown rocks that seem to comprise their feet. Its body makes metallic sounds when knocked. Because of this, it was once believed to be a Steel-type Pokémon, before further examinations confirmed it to be a Rock type.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Its body houses an energy core. Due to being compressed underground, its body is harder than iron. As stated by Cilan in Where Did You Go, Audino?, Roggenrola have sensitive hearing and can pick up sounds that are inaudible to humans.

Roggenrola were discovered in fissures 100 years ago.

Major appearances

Ash's Roggenrola

Roggenrola first appeared in Gotta Catch A Roggenrola!, when it fell into Cilan's food and beat Ash's Tepig and Oshawott in battle before being abandoned. Ash and his friends found it later in a cave where it was captured by Team Rocket. They free it and help it rescue the other Roggenrola. They're all then healed at the Pokémon Center, and the Roggenrola that they met before has a rematch with Ash's Tepig and is captured by Ash. It later evolved into a Boldore in Battling the King of the Mines!.

Origin

Roggenrola is based on a geode.

Name origin

Roggenrola is a corruption of rock and roll. It may, more specifically, be based on the pronunciation of "rock-'n'-roller" (a slang term for musicians who play rock and roll) in certain dialects of American English.

Dangoro may be a combination of 団子 dango (a Japanese dumpling) and ゴロ goro (grounder). It may also derive from ゴロゴロ goro goro (onomatopoeia for the sound of a boulder rolling).
