Roserade (Japanese: ロズレイド Roserade) is a dual-type Grass/Poison Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves from Roselia when exposed to a Shiny Stone. It is the final form of Budew.

Biology

Roserade is a bipedal Pokémon with an appearance that incorporates features of roses and masquerade attire. It has hair made of white rose petals, and a leafy, green cape with a yellow, collar-like bangle on its neck. The cape pattern reaches toward the back of its head, in spiky, sepal-like extensions on the hair. A male will have a shorter cape than a female. It has a dark-green mask over its red, yellow-lidded eyes. The lower portion of its face is light green, and it holds a bouquet in each hand. It has a red in its right hand and blue in its left. Its limbs and underside are light green. Its feet end with yellow tips.

Roserade lures prey with a sweet aroma. The more toxic its poison, the sweeter its aroma becomes. Each hand has different toxins, but both hands can jab with near-deadly power. It attacks with a dancer-like elegance, and uses hidden whips covered with poisonous thorns.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Roserade appears in Ring Around the Roserade I. Gardenia used a Roserade alongside her Cherubi in a Double Battle against Platinum's Prinplup and Ponyta. Although it quickly gained the upper hand by knocking out the latter using its poison whips and badly beat the former using combinations of Grass Knot and the aforementioned move, both ultimately became her downfall when Platinum took advantage of the cover that the knots gave and the holes that the whips created to deliver a finishing Blizzard that defeated both her Pokémon.

A Roserade liberated by Team Plasma appeared in a flashback in Pokédex Lecture.

A Roserade appeared in PS548.

In the Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure! manga

Roserade debuted as a silhouette in The Mystery Boy, Jun!!.

Gardenia's Roserade defeated Hareta's Misdreavus during his Gym battle in Win with Teamwork!!. However, before it fainted, Misdreavus used Spite, lowering the Power Points of Roserade's Magical Leaf. While at a disadvantage, Hareta's Piplup endured the rest of Roserade's Magical Leaf onslaught until it ran out, leaving it open to Piplup's Peck attack, winning the battle.

Trivia

Rosie's Roserade costume (English version)

Origin

Roserade appears to be based on a combination of a bouquet of roses, and a mysterious patron of a masquerade ball, in which masks would be worn to hide the identity of the participants. Its mask, cape and the mention of its 'movements of a dancer' in its Pokédex entry seem to confirm this.

It is also possible that, instead of roses, its design was based on hellebores, a genus in which many species are poisonous and deceptively similar to roses, tying in once again to the theme of disguises. Finally, Roserade's humanoid design, connection to flowers, and one of its Egg Groups suggest that it is also based on fairies.

Name origin

Roserade may be a combination of rose and masquerade (due to the appearance of wearing a mask).
