Rowlet is somewhat naive and inexperienced. In its [[SM004|debut episode]], Rowlet brought a wind chime from a market on [[Melemele Island]] to its nest, thinking it was {{pkmn|food}}. When Ash asked it to find {{an|Lillie}} in ''[[SM014|Getting to Know You!]]'', it returned with a watermelon instead. Similarly, when Ash asked it to try and find Pikachu in ''[[SM067|Love at First Twirl!]]'', it got distracted by the scent of {{TRT}}'s honey donuts. It is drawn to the aroma of Sweet Scent, such as when used by [[Mallow's Bounsweet]] in ''[[SM004|First Catch in Alola, Ketchum-Style!]]'' or by [[Lusamine]]'s {{p|Lilligant}} in ''[[SM053|Rescuing the Unwilling!]]''.
Rowlet also seems to be a very relaxed Pokémon, as shown in ''[[SM005|Yo, Ho, Ho! Go, Popplio!]]'', when it spent most of the episode not being bothered by what was going on around it, whether that included being splashed by water or being kidnapped by Team Rocket. Rowlet is often seen sleeping during the day, only waking up when it is needed by someone else, such as its Trainer. This character trait was shown in ''[[SM009|To Top a Totem!]]'' and ''[[SM035|Currying Favor and Flavor!]]'', when Ash called Rowlet out to battle against a Totem Pokémon and its ally, only to find it sleeping, in need of awakening. In its time as a wild Pokémon, it was even seen nodding off while being lectured by its caretaker, {{p|Trumbeak}}. However, in ''[[SM029|Lulled to La-La Land!]]'', Rotom noted that Rowlet shouldn't be sleeping so much. Rowlet has been show to sleep through almost anything, such as during battles and whilst being buried under sand, as shown in [[SM109]]. Despite this, it is loyal towards its friends, and would do anything to protect them. Due to its naivety and inexperience, Rowlet tends to panic when it is separated from Ash; however, this shows its closeness to Ash. Its closeness to its Trainer was also shown when it would sit or sleep on Ash's head, although it would also sometimes sit on Ash's shoulders. Despite this, it is loyal towards its friends, and would do anything to protect them.
Ash and Rowlet quickly bonded after meeting each other. Rowlet likes roosting and sleeping in his backpack, and even doesn't mind having company inside the bag as well, which was mainly shown with [[Nebby]] and Meltan. Like other members of its species, Rowlet is capable of flying silently, as first shown in ''To Top a Totem!''. In the same episode, it took a chance by fighting against the Yungoos without being commanded. Additionally, in ''Currying Favor and Flavor!'', it was shown instinctively protecting Litten from getting hit by a {{m|Water Gun}}. These situations have shown that it's an independent and quick thinking Pokémon. In ''[[SM010|Trial and Tribulation!]]'', Ash noticed this and used its ability to get the upper hand over [[Hala]] and his {{p|Crabrawler}}. Rowlet is also seen as a fast flyer as shown in ''[[SM036|Trials and Determinations!]]'' when it was able to dodge a Z-Move with Rockruff in tow. Rowlet has been shown to be easily startled, as shown in ''[[SM016|They Might Not Be Giants!]]'', where it was cowering in fear from the presence of a {{DL|Recurring wild Pokémon in the anime|Stoutland}}, despite the fact that Stoutland was only licking it out of affection. It was also shown to be happy at the thought that Ash would be brought to tears of joy after it reunites with its Trainer and at the thought of {{TP|Lana|Popplio}} being scolded by {{an|Lana|its Trainer}}.
