Rochelle

Rochelle (Japanese: ヒイラギ Hiiragi) is a one-time character in the Pokémon anime who appeared in Roll On, Pokémon!.

As Ash was attempting to capture one of (unbeknownst then to him) Rochelle’s Donphan, she stepped in front of the battered Donphan and declared that it was enough, and that she should report them to Officer Jenny. Brock then approached Rochelle romantically, asking what her name is, with Rochelle subsequently telling him. Brock noticed the necklace she wears, and noted that it is beautiful. Rochelle thanked him, and told him it is amberite.

Rochelle is affectionate towards her Donphan, as when searching for one of the Donphan Team Rocket captured she used the term ‘sweetie’. Rochelle appears to be somewhat unobservative, or difficult to faze; since when Ash asked her who the captors of her Donphan looked like, she stated ‘a talking Meowth’ without the usual puzzlement.

When looking for amberite, Rochelle tells her Donphan it is time to find amberite, holding her amberite necklace to their upraised trunk. The Donphan will then lift its trunk into the air, sniffing for amberite. When it finds some, it will run towards the source of the amberite and ram repeatedly into the base of a rock cliff, causing a chunk from the upper sections of the cliff to fall.

Rochelle's Donphan
Donphan (×4)
Rochelle has four Donphan and is very affectionate towards them and she uses them to find a gem called amberite. One first appeared when Ash and Brock were trying to capture it (thinking it was wild) with their Onix and Heracross. It was hurt and they were about to capture it when Rochelle stepped in.

Rochelle sent all her Donphan out to find the Donphan Team Rocket stole. It didn't take long until they found Team Rocket. With the help of Ash and his friends, they were able to send the trio blasting off and reunite the stolen Donphan. Later, Ash decided to have a battle against Donphan using his Heracross. Heracross was doing well but was distracted by sap on a tree but after it, battled more and in the end Donphan won.

When looking for amberite, Rochelle tells her Donphan it is time to find amberite, holding her amberite necklace to their upraised trunk. The Donphan will then lift its trunk into the air, sniffing for amberite. When it finds some, it will run towards the source of the amberite and ram repeatedly into the base of a rock cliff, causing a chunk from the upper sections of the cliff to fall.

Donphan's known moves are Tackle and Rollout.
