Diamond & Pearl arc

Roseanne first appeared in Well Met, Weepinbell, watching over Professor Rowan's laboratory while he and Mr. Berlitz were away. After getting frustrated from being unable to find a missing document, Roseanne went outside to calm herself down. As she exited the building, Roseanne found a swarm of Yanmega waiting outside.

The Yanmega begun rushing inside the building while Roseanne fled due to her fear of Bug-type Pokémon. Due to the sound caused by the flapping of the Yanmega's wings, Roseanne's voice was drowned out, preventing her from calling for help. She used the laboratory's lights to send a message for help, which alerted Diamond and Sebastian to come to her aid. With the help of his Lickilicky, Kit, Dia captured and destroyed a device that was sending commands to the Yanmega. With no one to command them, the Yanmega dispersed.

Platinum arc

She makes a cameo at the end of this chapter, in Alternate Dimension Showdown XI.

X & Y arc

Roseanne appeared with Rowan as he informed Professor Oak that he discovered that Xerneas and Yveltal had appeared in the Kalos region.

Roseanne was seen in a flashback in Homecoming and the Brilliant Professional Golfer, giving Mr. Berlitz a Rotom meant to be delivered to Professor Kukui. She also appeared in Faba's flashback in Tyrant!! The Fiendish Man!.

Main article: Rotom Pokédex (Adventures)

Professor Kukui requested to receive a Rotom from a region outside of Alola so that he may use it to fuse with one of his Pokédexes. Roseanne eventually found one that would work but due to this particular Rotom having a weak body, it was unable to be transferred electronically. Moon was given the task of delivering Rotom to Professor Kukui while also using her pharmaceutical skills to keep it healthy along the way.
