Oleana (Japanese: オリーヴ Olive) is Rose's secretary. She also serves as the vice-president of his company, Macro Cosmos. Previously, she was a researcher and invented the Dynamax Band.[1]

In the games

Oleana first appears by Rose's side at Motostoke Stadium during the Gym Challenge opening ceremony. She later accompanies him at Hulbury, where she urges the player to earn their Water Badge and join the chairman at a local seafood restaurant. Once the player has won the Badge, Oleana will give the player Rose's League Card and repeat her request. Once the player reaches Hammerlocke, Oleana is seen meeting up with Bede. When Bede later threatens to destroy the ancient mural at Stow-on-Side, Oleana appears with Chairman Rose and revokes Bede's Gym Challenger status.

After the player has cleared the Champion Cup semi-finals, Oleana tasks a League Staff member with keeping the key to Rose Tower away from the player and Hop, wanting to keep Chairman Rose undisturbed during his conversation with Leon. Once the player and Hop reach the top floor of Rose Tower, Oleana challenges the player to a battle in an effort to stop them from reaching Rose.

During the climax of Pokémon Sword and Shield, Oleana requests the player's help in stopping Rose's plan of using Eternatus to bring about the second Darkest Day. During the post-game, she can be found doing voluntary community service at the Galar Mine, giving the player Rose's rare League Card.

Oleana will Gigantamax her Garbodor at the first opportunity.

  • Upon first entering the city
"Our sincerest apologies! The chairman is quite busy at the moment... Everyone, please disperse! Please leave now!"
"Fans are very important, of course. That's why you need to keep doing your work— for their sake."
"Chairman, we should really be going..."
"The chairman will be heading to this town's seafood restaurant. Win the Gym Badge and join him there at once. Do not keep him waiting."
"I believe the chairman was quite clear. Get your Water Badge at once."
"Do not keep the chairman waiting. Head to the seafood restaurant—the Captain's Table. So you will not forget the chairman's face, I will give you one of his League Cards."
"Chairman Rose is the kind of man who gets downhearted if he doesn't take care of things he needs to right away... Go to the seafood restaurant as soon as possible, so as not to keep the chairman waiting."
Captain's Table
"Understood, Chairman. I will arrange a meeting with Ms. Sonia."
"However, I believe it is about time we get going, Chairman."
"Good work, Bede. I'm glad you haven't forgotten that it was the chairman who endorsed you."
"Challenger Bede, there is something I wish to discuss with you. Do you have a moment?"
"Challenger Bede!"
"I wondered what you were up to when you asked to borrow Chairman Rose's Copperajah... I can't believe you'd try to use the chairman’s Pokémon to destroy a historical site!"
"Challenger Bede. I will be taking those Wishing Stars that you have gathered."
"What a beautiful display of sibling love! However, it is entirely unnecessary."
"Chairman Rose is with the Champion in a very, very important meeting..."
"There is no way I will let anyone interfere!"
"After all, only authorized personnel with the proper key can ride the monorail to Rose Tower."
"That means as long as Chairman Rose is in the tower, no one can disturb him!"
"I have hand selected a member of the League staff and given them a key. Chairman Rose does enjoy these kind of menial games after all."
"Do you think you can tell the difference between normal League staff and the one I chose?"
Rose Tower
1F (via intercom)
"Intruder alert. Intruder alert. All staff are ordered to help remove the intruders from the premises at once."
Top floor
"Welcome to Chairman Rose’s exclusive space. Here, nearly a thousand feet above the earth!"
"So, you got through all of the special staff that I had ordered to stop you. I would expect nothing less of the Trainers handpicked by Champion Leon himself."
"But I am afraid it is now time for you to go home."
"I will not allow anyone to disturb the great Chairman Rose!"
"You shall be the first, <player>! If I beat you to pieces, then the Champion will have no one to battle and will thus lose heart. In that state, he will listen to anything the chairman says!"
  • Upon receiving first attack
"My, how cheeky. To do such a thing as to hurt my partner!"
  • Upon sending out final Pokémon
"This is my last Pokémon? Seriously?! Oleana's gotta finish this!"
"I think I’ll treat you to something truly spectacular. A Gigantamax at Rose Tower."
"Here is a move I was good with even before I changed my image."
  • Upon being defeated
"*sigh* I wasn't able to win... Oleana...you really are a hopeless woman."
  • After being defeated
"Arghhh! This is inexcusable... What was I thinking... Any Gym Challenger who's made it this far would be no pushover..."
"Under normal circumstances, I would have tried to delay you further. However, all the necessary Wishing Stars have been collected. Do as you wish. There is nothing to be done now."
"Everything I did, I did to further the chairman's own goals..."
Hammerlocke Stadium
"G-Gym Challenger! You must help me! I-I mean, please, help me!"
"My Pokémon suddenly Dynamaxed for some reason and started running amok in the stadium..."
"Raihan...I mean, Mr. Raihan was able to subdue the Dynamax Pokémon in the stadium, but..."
"If other Pokémon also Dynamax and go on a rampage..."
"the underground power plant would collapse! Mr. Rose is down there right now!"
"I know this is selfish of me, but I must beg your assistance! I want you to head into the underground power plant and stop Mr. Rose!"
"Mr. Rose has awakened a Pokémon known as Eternatus... Apparently, the energy emitted from its body is what causes Dynamaxing."
"At this rate, all the Pokémon in the Galar region will Dynamax and go berserk! If that were to happen—"
"Please, you must save Mr. Rose! You can take the lift over there to reach him. I’ve enlisted the help of the Champion's younger brother, too, but who knows what is going on..."
"Oh no... Eternatus is— Oh, Mr. Rose..."
Galar Mine
"Oh... Champion. I never thought I'd run into you in the mines."
"I've been doing some voluntary community service on Mr. Rose's behalf."
"Mr. Rose... A long time ago he used to work in a coal mine, you know. That’s why I'm actually happy with doing this kind of work. Yes! I’m so happy, I think I'll give you one of my prized League Cards!"
"You don't need to worry... I have a hundred copies of Mr. Rose's League Card. They’re all signed, too!"
"Champion... Thank you for stopping Eternatus. I know Mr. Rose feels the same way... But he was just so worried about the future..."

Young Oleana

In Pokémon: Twilight Wings, Oleana is an major recurring character. She debuted in Letter, where she accompanied Rose during his visit to a children's hospital.

In Training, Bea called Oleana to tell her that she would be training at the Wild Area for a while and thus be away from her Gym. Oleana then told Rose.

In Early-Evening Waves, Oleana was with Rose when he approached Nessa. Later, Nessa visited her, and told her to tell Rose that she would be successful both as a Gym Leader and as a model.

In Assistant, Oleana led Macro Cosmos while Chairman Rose was away for the day, eventually reuniting with him by the evening. Her past as a laboratory assistant was also explored.

In Sky, Oleana informed Chairman Rose that Leon hadn't arrived to the stadium yet. She was later seen with Chairman Rose on the field, waiting for the match to start.


Like her game counterpart, Oleana is extremely dedicated to her work, almost as if it were an extension of her life. In the past, she was the only one to make progress in studying the Dynamax phenomenon, which earned her the admiration of Rose.
