Roselia (ロゼリア) is the 94th Pokémon in the Hoenn Pokédex. It is a Grass/Poison Type, and is known as the Thorn Pokémon.

Roselia can have one of two Abilities: Natural Cure, which heals any status conditions that it may have become afflicted with; or Poison Point, an Ability that has a 30% chance of poisoning an opponent that uses an attack that requires physical contact against a Pokémon with this Ability, except for another Poison Type or a Steel Type, or a Pokémon that has the Immunity Ability.

A third Ability is available to Roselia from the Dream World, the Leaf Guard Ability. This Ability heals all stats problems when the weather is strong sunlight, either due to the Drought Ability or the move Sunny Day.

When it was introduced in Generation III Roselia could not evolve and did not have a pre-evolved form. Generation IV saw the introduction of a pre-evolved form, Budew, and an evolved form, Roserade. Budew can evolve into Roselia by becoming loyal to its trainer and leveling up (a Friendship Evolution) during the daytime. Roselia's evolved form, Roserade, can be obtained through the usage of a Shiny Stone.

Roselia is in the Egg Groups Fairy and Grass, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch; a Roselia will hatch unless the Roselia in the breeding pair is holding a Rose Incense. If this happens, a Budew will hatch instead, requiring the same number of Steps. It takes Roselia 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
