Roggenrola (ダンゴロ) is the 30th Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Rock type, and it is known as the Mantle Pokémon.

Roggenrola's ability is Sturdy, which nullifies the effect of One-Hit Knock Out moves such as Fissure or Horn Drill, and starting with Generation V, all Pokémon that have this ability cannot be knocked out when its HP is full. In this instance the Pokémon will have 1 HP left instead. A second ability exclusive to Roggenrola captured in the Dream World, called Sand Force, increases the power of Ground, Rock, and Steel-Type moves by 33% during a Sandstorm.

Roggenrola have the potential of evolving twice. Its first opportunity comes at Level 25, which is when it can evolve into Boldore. The only way to evolve it a second time--into Gigalith--is by trading a Boldore to another Pokémon Black or White game card.

Roggenrola is in the Mineral Egg Group, and its Egg will take approximately 3,840 steps to hatch. It takes Roggenrola 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
