Roggenrola (Japanese: ダンゴロ Dangoro) is a Rock-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Boldore starting at level 25, which evolves into Gigalith when traded.

Biology

Roggenrola is a roughly spherical Pokémon discovered a century ago in an earthquake fissure. Its body is blue and covered in large, smooth facets. It has a hexagonal, yellow artifice in the center of its body, leading to a hexagonal opening that functions as an ear. Roggenrola has a brown, rocky oblong atop its head, and similar brown rocks that serve as feet. Its body houses an energy core; due to compression underground, both this core and Roggenrola's body are as hard as steel. As stated by Cilan in Where Did You Go, Audino?, Roggenrola has sensitive hearing and can hear sounds that are inaudible to humans. It tends to follow the sounds it picks up with its lone ear.

Major appearances

Ash's Roggenrola

Roggenrola first appeared in Gotta Catch A Roggenrola!, when it fell into Cilan's food and beat Ash's Tepig and Oshawott in battle before being abandoned. Ash and his friends found it later in a cave where it was captured by Team Rocket. They free it and help it rescue the other Roggenrola. They're all then healed at the Pokémon Center, and the Roggenrola that they met before has a rematch with Ash's Tepig and is captured by Ash. It later evolved into a Boldore in Battling the King of the Mines!.

Minor appearances

A Roggenrola appeared in The Path That Leads to Goodbye! in a flashback.

Multiple Roggenrola appeared in A Pokémon of a Different Color!.

A Roggenrola appeared in Go, Go Gogoat!.

  • Roggenrola has the lowest Special Defense base stat and also the lowest base stat total of all Rock-type Pokémon.

Origin

Roggenrola is based on a geode.

Name origin

Roggenrola is a corruption of rock and roll. It may, more specifically, be based on the pronunciation of "rock-'n'-roller" (a slang term for musicians who play rock and roll) in certain dialects of American English.

Dangoro may be a combination of 団子 dango (a Japanese dumpling) and ゴロ goro (grounder). It may also derive from ゴロゴロ goro goro (onomatopoeia for the sound of a boulder rolling).
