You think the name "Roserade" sounds like "Gatorade?" BlueJirachi 19:34, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
- Kind of odd to bring up, but...sort of? Roserade is two syllables, and Gatorade is three, so kind-of, sort-of, no. MoldyOrange 19:39, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
- it rhymes..Garrison12795
Well, Trivia did say its name sounds like an energy drink, so the first thing that popped into my head was Gatorade. BlueJirachi 19:43, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
- Sounds close to Lucozade, which is an energy drink here. Gywall 19:45, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
Me too. I'm more familiar with Gatorade. BlueJirachi 19:50, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
- at least we know it doesn't mean vault..lolGarrison12795
I don't get it. BlueJirachi 19:53, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
- vault is another energy drink..Garrison12795
Oh. Yet another one I've never heard of. BlueJirachi 19:55, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
- i don't drink it myself, but it's pretty popular in my area.Garrison12795
I must be living under a rock not to know about the drinks.BlueJirachi 19:59, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Same Gen Sprite Difference?
I was putting together a reference sheet for Platinum first frame sprites and noticed something interesting. Male and Female Roserade have different shades of white on their 'hair' petals. I was wondering if this is actually a minor discrepincy on Nintendo's part or if perhaps Bulbapedia for some reason had a slightly altered female sprite. I did check other places who have Roserade's Platinum sprites uploaded, but of course as minor as the difference is, saving to certain formats before uploading could have erased it if it was there. Naturally, this is a pretty minor issue, but I did think it might make an interesting trivia point if it in fact is different.Heart of Thorns 22:47, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
- And speaking of which, I've noticed that Roserade is shown in a brighter shade of green than in it's in-game sprites. Would it be okay to make a note of that too?--Pokencyclopedia 12:20, 23 February 2009 (UTC)
- While possibly not related, I noticed there's a slight mistake with Bulbapedia's Roserade back sprites: the females' back sprites look exactly the same as the male versions, with the shorter cape, even though the back sprites show a clear cape length difference between genders when you check the games themselves. Hopefully someone's going to reupload the female back-images (though I don't know if Veekun's going to help, because it made the exact same mistake with its downloadable sprite collections).

Battle Revolution costumes
Only Roserade's page mentions the matching costume in the Trivia section. There's a total of 12 costumes (6 Pokémon, both a regular version and a shiny version): Roserade (Cool Girl), Lucario (Cool Boy), Groudon (Young Boy), Kyogre (Young Girl), Electivire (Muscle Man), and Pachirisu (Little Grl).

This isn't true...
This line is not true: "Roserade is the only final form dual-type Grass/Poison Pokémon not introduced in the same generation as all other members of its evolutionary line. "
I'm removing it.PokeHomsar 00:58, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
- Before you remove it, give a reason it is false. Can you name another one? The Dark Fiddler - Smarter than the average bear! 01:00, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
- Actually, there are four final stage Grass/Poison Pokémon: Venusaur, Vileplume, Victreebel and Roserade. The others were all introduced in the same generation as their pre-evos, and their names all start with V. Bellossom is considered part of both Oddish and Gloom's evolutionary line, but not part of Vileplume's, as is shown by the evobox on it's page. Werdnae 01:22, 4 December 2008 (UTC)
- I'd like to point out that I think he meant this isn't true because it ISN'T not introduced in the same generation as all the other members of its evolutionary line - Budew and Roserade were both introduced in Generation IV. Lucadan (Talk) 21:39, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
"A Roselia evolved at level 1 will never learn any moves without the aid of TMs or Move Tutors. "
This isn't true because it will learn all of Roserade's Level 1 moves after the Shiny Stone is used (unless it already knows it because of inheritance from breeding). So, is it okay for it to be removed? - unsigned comment from R S E FR LG (talk • contribs)
- Fair point. Boom it goes! 11:38, 24 December 2009 (UTC)
Why does Togepi need a level to evolve by happiness, but Budew doesn't? --PenblooeR 03:14, 21 April 2012 (UTC)
- Because Pokémon gain happiness by level up. Also, it doesn't say you need a Budew. You can get a Roseelia at level 1 and evolve it.--ForceFire 03:17, 21 April 2012 (UTC)
Picture in Trivia
Was there supposed to be a Trivia bit to go along with it? Its caption, "Rosie's Roserade costume (English Version)" isn't very clear to me since I don't think I have whatever game that is. The English version of what game? Sorry, I just don't know what game it's talking about, and there's no trivia to explain it... KyuremsIceBlade 14:14, 6 July 2013 (UTC)
