Roserade (Japanese: ロズレイド Rozureido) is a Pokémon,/ -type
Also called the Boutique Pokémon. Roserade is a small plant/human-like Pokémon with a similar appearance to its pre-evolved form, Roselia. Like Roselia, Roserade have fully bloomed flowers at the ends of their arms, though they have three on each arm, appearing like bouquets, as opposed to Roselia's one rose on each arm. Instead of the dress-like leaf in the front, Roserade has a long cape-like leaf on their backs. Roserade also have a single leaf present between their legs. Around their necks are a yellow "collar", and on their head are white rose petals which appear as hair. Covering the top part of its face is a leaf, making it appear that it is wearing a mask.
The shiny version of Roserade have, in general, a more pale color. The red bouquet is changed to purple, and the blue is changed to gray. Female Roserade have a longer "cape" than a male Roserade.
Roserade have the abilities Natural Cure and Poison Point. Natural Cure will cure any Status Ailments upon switching out of battle, and Poison Point will cause a 30% chance that the opponent Pokémon will become poisoned if physical contact is made.
Roserade made its debut appearance in the Pokémon anime episode Oh Do You Know the Poffin Plan. This Roserade was owned by a woman named Forsythia near Floaroma Town, it was known for being quite shy. When Team Rocket attacked Forsythia's garden however, it fashioned a scarf on itself much like a ninja hood, and received a large boost of confidence, defending the garden.
Another Roserade appeared under Gardenia's control in A Grass Menagerie where it battled Ash's Turtwig and Aipom. It defeated Turtwig with a fiery Weather Ball, but fell to Ash's Aipom with a combination of Aipom's Focus Punch and Swift.
Another Roserade appeared under Barry's ownership in Barry's Busting Out All Over!. He used Roserade to battle against Ash's Chimchar and Gliscor. Roserade managed to beat Chimchar with several Poison Jabs and eventually tied with Gliscor and fainted along with Gliscor. His Roserade later appeared in Steeling Peace of Mind!.
