Ash's Roggenrola (Japanese: サトシのダンゴロ Satoshi's Dangoro) is the eighth Pokémon that Ash obtained in the Unova region.


Roggenrola was introduced in BW034 when it literally crashed into Cilan's food in distress. Ash battles it, but it manages to knock out both Oshawott and Tepig. It later met Ash again when they came to investigate a tunnel, where they found Team Rocket harvesting wild Roggenrola for their cannon. It too was collected, and Ash managed to save it, but not before Team Rocket caused a cave in with a powerful Flash Cannon created by all the Roggenrola they collected. After they escaped the tunnel, they found Team Rocket in a warehouse where Ash and Roggenrola managed to free the other Roggenrola. Once they were reunited, they sent Team Rocket blasting off with a combined Flash Cannon. After being cured at the Pokémon Center, Roggenrola challenged Ash to a rematch, where it was eventually defeated by Tepig and captured.

In the next episode, Roggenrola was used to help locate where the missing Audino were going. Cilan stated that Roggenrola had sensitive hearing similar to Audino and could pick up sounds that were inaudible to humans. Thanks to it, they were able to find out where the Audino were being kept. It also made use of its Stone Edge by destroying Team Rocket's sound wave machine that controlled the Audino, thus setting them free.


Roggenrola has shown to be very resourceful, using a stand alone bowl for defense, as well as using its Flash Cannon attack to destroy falling boulders, or its Sandstorm to put out a fire. It also appears to care deeply for others and goes out of its way to ensure their safety, such as the lengths it went to to save the other Roggenrola, even to go as far as to risk its life facing Team Rocket's mecha head on. It also made sure other wild Pokémon in the general area knew of the impending danger, despite the issue not involving them. This is also seen in BW035 when it sought out the missing Audino with its hearing ability.
