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.

Oleana in the anime

In the 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 JN045. 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.


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 JN045, when Eternatus transformed into its Eternamax form, Oleana expressed some concerns about Rose's actual motives.


This listing is of Oleana's known Pokémon in the anime:

Oleana's Milotic
Milotic was sent out to battle Goh and Raboot. In JN045, it was defeated by Goh's newly evolved Cinderace.

Milotic's known moves are Water Pulse and Aqua Tail.

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.


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.

Oleana debuted in PASS02, appearing with Rose at Rose Tower as he received a call from Leon about an endorsement he was planning to give.

In PASS08, when Rose tried to arrange a meal with Sōdo before his match with Nessa in Hulbury, she reminds Rose of his tight schedule and drags him off.

In PASS09, after Sōdo won his match, she appears to show him and Sonia the way after Rose's insistent to have lunch with the both of them.

In PASS10, she was seen talking to Bede on a phone call who told him that Rose's no longer in Hulbury due to his work being delayed after an unexpected meal with a Gym Challenger. Bede angrily demands that why he as someone who was endorsed by the Chairman did not get to meet him yet Sōdo being endorsed by the Champion gets to meet him. Oleana states that whatever the Chairman does is up to him and demands him to continue gather Wishing Stars as ordered.

At Stow-on-Side, she and Rose appeared with Macro Cosmos's employees to restrain Bede after he destroyed the monument and disqualified him from the Gym Challenge.
