Roark is the Oreburgh City Gym Leader in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. When he's not at the Gym, he is the Oreburgh Mine's safety supervisor. Roark's specialty is Rock-Type Pokémon. He also uses a Fossil Pokémon, Cranidos.

If a player defeats him they will obtain the Coal Badge and TM76 (Stealth Rock). The Coal Badge will also give the player the ability to use Rock Smash outside of a battle.

AnimeEdit

AshVsRoark

Ash in his Gym Battle with Roark.

Roark first appeared in the episode Shapes of Things to Come where both Paul and Ash show up at his Gym for a battle. Since Paul was the first to show up he was able to battle Roark first.

Roark, using a team of Geodude, Onix and Cranidos battled Paul's team of Azumarill, Chimchar and Elekid. Roark's strong abilities were shown as he was able to defeat two of Paul's Pokémon, though his Cranidos was unable to withstand Elekid's power leaving Paul the victor.

In the next episode A Gruff Act to Follow, Ash battled Roark the day after Paul's battle. Using a team of Pikachu, Turtwig, and Aipom, Ash battled his way through Roark's team. In the end though, Ash was defeated by Roark and would need to challenge him again.

In O'er the Rampardos we Watched, Ash would have a rematch with Roark using the same Pokémon. Roark's newly evolved Rampardos proved to be difficult but was defeated by Turtwig. With Roark's defeat, Ash had earned his Coal Badge.
