In the core series

As the protagonist

Rosa is a young girl living in Aspertia City with her childhood friend Hugh. At the start of the game, she sets off with Hugh to collect her first Pokémon. They then go their separate ways, and she starts her journey across the Unova region.

As a non-playable character

If the player chooses Nate, Rosa will appear in-game as an NPC, first met in Nimbasa City. She will join the player in a Multi Battle against Emmet and Ingo. Afterwards, she will give the player the Vs. Recorder.

Rosa will then appear as the player's partner in the Battle Subway when choosing to ride the Multi-Train. Two of the following Pokémon are picked from the corresponding list, depending on what the player wants her to base her team on. If the player chooses "A balance between the two," Rosa's Pokémon are chosen from either list.

This is a list of all the Pokémon used in the Multi Train and Super Multi Train battles. Each Pokémon has a non-Hidden Ability that, along with gender, is randomly selected. These Pokémon will always have the maximum 31 individual values across every stat and the full 510 effort values evenly distributed (rounding down) among two or three stats.
