Roselia (Japanese: ロゼリア Roselia) is a dual-type Grass/Poison Pokémon.

Biology

Physiology

Roselia seems to share physical traits with both Gardevoir and Jumpluff. However, Roselia is only directly related to Budew and Roserade.

Roselia is a small Pokémon with a light green body. Roselia has a leaf skirt and holds a rose on each of its hands. Roselia has three thorns on top of its head. Roselia are normally 12 inches tall, but on rare occasions they grow up to the size of a human child, similar to Drew's Roselia.

Gender differences

A male Roselia has a shorter skirt than a female.

Special abilities

Roselia normally fire sharp thorns (either Poison Sting or Pin Missile, but the latter of the two rarely occurs) as a first offense, usually at wild Pokémon who try to steal its flowers. Roselia are also capable of launching some Powder-based moves to either inflict status problems on its foes (Sleep Powder, Stun Spore, PoisonPowder or Sweet Scent) or to heal the status problems of itself and its allies (Aromatherapy). Roselia are also capable of knowing Petal Dance. Like most Grass-type Pokémon, Roselia can take in sunlight and focus it into a SolarBeam.

Behavior

Roselia seem to be peaceful Pokémon, but can attack fiercely with powerful poisonous attacks upon sensing danger.

Habitat

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

Roselia usually drink nutrient-rich spring water. Since Roselia is a plant-based Pokémon, it also nourishes itself through photosynthesis.

In the anime

Roselia is the signature Pokémon of Drew. Roselia was first seen under his ownership in Now That's Flower Power and has been used in many Pokémon Contests since. It evolved at some point between The Unbeatable Lightness of Seeing and A Full Course Tag Battle! while Drew was in Johto.

Victoria of the Winstrate Family owns a Roselia which she used in a battle against May in Candid Camerupt.

At the end of Dawn of a New Era, Ash challenged Nando to a Pokémon battle. Nando's Budew evolved into a Roselia while battling Ash's Pikachu, but Pikachu still won.

A Roselia made a cameo appearance in DP086 as an entry in the Hearthome Collection contest.

In the manga

Wally caught a Roselia on Route 117. It's so small that Wally carries it in his pocket.

In the TCG

Trivia

  • Roselia is the first Pokémon to receive both Template:P2 and Template:P2 in the same generation. Other Pokémon that received both, though not in the same generation, are Chansey, Electabuzz and Magmar. Porygon recieved two evolutions. Roselia is the only one of those Pokémon that isn't from Generation I.
  • Roselia is one of fourteen Pokémon that one can collect foreign Pokédex entries for.
  • Roselia was at one time the only dual-type Grass/Poison Pokémon that did not evolve into or from anything (though this changed when Budew and Roserade were introduced). It was also the only Pokémon with its specific type combination to not be from Generation I until its evolution and pre-evolution appeared.
  • Roselia's Platinum sprite is its only sprite where its eyes are open.

Origin

Roselia are based on rose bushes.

Name origin

Roselia's name is based on rose and perhaps azalea, or more likely buddleia.
