Roselia, known in Japan as ロゼリア (Roselia) is a Grass/Poison-type Pokémon, originating from Hoenn. It is the evolved form of Budew, and is known as the Thorn Pokemon. It evolves from Budew with high friendship during the day and evolves into Roserade when exposed to a Shiny Stone.
Roselia is a small, light green bipedal Pokémon. It has three thorns on top of its head, and it has black eyes with long eyelashes. Visible from the back is a small stretch of yellow coloration around its neck much like a collar. There are leaves extending from its shoulders like epaulettes. It has a leaf skirt with a yellow stripe running down the front. A male will have a shorter skirt than a female. It holds a rose in each of its hands, a red one in its right and a blue one in its left. However, it is said that it will occasionally have unusually colored flowers.
Roselia's aroma brings serenity, but the thorns on its head contain a vicious poison. The more healthy it is, the more pleasant its flowers' aroma. It can lull opponents to sleep using its former signature move, Grass Whistle. It shoots sharp thorns at anything that tries to steal its flowers, and uses different poisons in each hand when it attacks. It lives in grassy areas where it drinks nutrient-rich spring water.
- Roselia is the only Pokémon to receive both a pre-evolution and an evolution in the same generation. Other Pokémon have received both, though not in the same generation.
- In 2007, employees of Nintendo of America put Heracross up on the Global Trade Station for a Japanese Roselia.
- Roselia is one of fourteen Pokémon that one can collect foreign Pokédex entries for in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl.
- Roselia and its evolution are the only Poison-type Pokémon belonging in the Fairy Egg Group.
