As a non-playable character

If the player chooses Nate, Rosa will appear in-game as an NPC, first met in Nimbasa City. She will join the player in a Multi Battle against Emmet and Ingo. Afterwards, she will give the player the Vs. Recorder.

Rosa will then appear as the player's partner in the Battle Subway when choosing to ride the Multi-Train. Two of the following Pokémon are picked from the corresponding list, depending on what the player wants her to base her team on. If the player chooses "A balance between the two," Rosa's Pokémon are chosen from either list.
