Oleana (Japanese: オリーヴ Olive) is Rose's secretary. She also serves as the vice-president of his company, Macro Cosmos. Previously, she was a researcher and invented the Dynamax Band.[1]

In the games

Oleana is first seen by Rose's side at Motostoke Stadium during the Gym Challenge opening ceremony. She later accompanies him at Hulbury, where she urges the player to earn their Water Badge and join the chairman at a local seafood restaurant. Once the player has won the Badge, Oleana will give the player Rose's League Card and repeat her request. Once the player reaches Hammerlocke, Oleana is seen meeting up with Bede. When Bede later threatens to destroy the ancient mural at Stow-on-Side, Oleana appears with Chairman Rose and revokes Bede's Gym Challenger status.

After the player has cleared the Champion Cup semi-finals, Oleana tasks a League Staff member with keeping the key to Rose Tower away from the player and Hop, wanting to keep Chairman Rose undisturbed during his conversation with Leon. Once the player and Hop reach the top floor of Rose Tower, Oleana challenges the player to a battle in an effort to stop them from reaching Rose.

During the climax of Pokémon Sword and Shield, Oleana requests the player's help in stopping Rose's plan of using Eternatus to bring about the second Darkest Day. During the post-game, she can be found doing voluntary community service at the Galar Mine, giving the player Rose's rare League Card.

After the player has completed The Crown Tundra storyline, Oleana can be found at the Old Cemetery at nighttime, having come to the Crown Tundra to investigate rumors about Rose having been seen there. Upon learning that the person in question was actually Peony and not Rose, she is momentarily angered but quickly calms down before leaving.

Main series

Oleana debuted in Sword and Shield, Slumbering Weald!, where she and Rose visited the Galar Energy Plant, just as a burst of Galar Particles escaped from the reactor core. She pushed for more energy to be injected into the core, eventually prompting Eternatus to awaken. In the meantime, she had one of her subordinates follow Goh and Sonia, who were trying to learn more about the Darkest Day legend.

In Sword and Shield: "From Here to Eternatus!", Oleana stopped Goh from reaching Rose, but she lost in the battle that unfolded inside the Hammerlocke Stadium foyer in Sword and Shield... The Legends Awaken!. She returned to her boss's side, joining him in a helicopter to watch Eternatus transform into its Eternamax form and take on Ash, Goh, and Leon. Following Eternatus's defeat and capture, she went into hiding with Rose.

Character

Oleana is dedicated to her position as Rose's secretary and wholeheartedly supports his ambitions. She is contemptuous and prone to violent outbursts of anger, especially when Rose's integrity is questioned. Later in Sword and Shield... The Legends Awaken!, when Eternatus transformed into its Eternamax form, Oleana expressed some concerns about Rose's actual motives.

Young Oleana

In Pokémon: Twilight Wings, Oleana is a major recurring character. She debuted in Letter, where she accompanied Rose during his visit to a children's hospital.

In Training, Bea called Oleana to tell her that she would be training at the Wild Area for a while and thus be away from her Gym. Oleana then told Rose.

In Early-Evening Waves, Oleana was with Rose when he approached Nessa. Later, Nessa visited her, and told her to tell Rose that she would be successful both as a Gym Leader and as a model.

In Assistant, Oleana led Macro Cosmos while Chairman Rose was away for the day, eventually reuniting with him by the evening. Her past as a laboratory assistant was also explored.

In Sky, Oleana informed Chairman Rose that Leon hadn't arrived to the stadium yet. She was later seen with Chairman Rose on the field, waiting for the match to start.

In The Gathering of Stars, Oleana was seen doing volunteer work at Galar Mine.

Character

Like her game counterpart, Oleana is extremely dedicated to her work, almost as if it were an extension of her life. In the past, she was the only one to make progress in studying the Dynamax phenomenon, which earned her the admiration of Rose.

Pokémon Adventures

Oleana debuted in Crackle!! Practice Battle. She was first seen at Rose Tower, where Rose received a call from Leon about endorsing Henry Sword and Casey Shield for the Gym Challenge.

In PASS08, Oleana appeared with Rose at Hulbury, where they met Henry and Marvin. Rose attempted to invite Henry to dinner at the Captain's Table Restaurant, only to be dragged away by Oleana, who noted he had no free time. Later, she took Henry and Sonia to dinner with Rose, whose insistence on having dinner forced Oleana to add it to his schedule. Noting Sonia's study of the Dynamax phenomenon, Rose suggested she investigate the vault in Hammerlocke and had Oleana make the proper arrangements.

In PASS14, Oleana and Rose found Bede attempting to destroy the Stow-on-Side mural to obtain Wishing Stars. Bede was apprehended by several League Staff members at Rose's request and reprimanded for damaging an important piece of Galar's history. Rose then punished Bede with disqualification from the Gym Challenge.

In PASS17, Raihan investigated the Energy Plant after a large earthquake shook Hammerlocke. There, he found Oleana and Rose, who claimed that they were experimenting with Wishing Stars to find a new source of electricity and prevent an energy crisis a thousand years away. Raihan agreed to keep what he learned secret and left without issue, though Oleana noted he didn't believe their explanation. They then prepared to feed the Wishing Stars to the Eternatus they had held captive.

In PASS18, a group of Macro Cosmos's apologized to Oleana for failing to capture a Dracovish that suddenly Dynamaxed due to the incident at the Energy Plant. Annoyed, Oleana reported the failure to Rose and ordered the team to stand back in Wyndon.
