Go To



There exist Roggenrola that are purple in color unlike their blue brethren, and evolve into Boldore and Gigalith with blue crystals instead of red, due to a slight chemical difference in core composition. These rare Pokémon are greatly prized by collectors. Rarer still are a subtype of Roggenrola that have thinner outer casings, but are capable of using sediment to fire larger, thicker rocks from their bodies.

There exist Roggenrola that are purple in color unlike their blue brethren, and evolve into Boldore and Gigalith with blue crystals instead of red, due to a slight chemical difference in core composition. These rare Pokémon are greatly prized by collectors. There is also a phenotype of Roggenrola with thinner outer cases, but gain increased speed in return. They eventually evolve into Gigalith capable of releasing sediment at will to create localized sandstorms. Rarer still are a subtype of Roggenrola that also have thinner outer casings, but are capable of using sediment to fire larger, thicker rocks from their bodies.




Roggenrola survive mainly on their cores, and as a result normally do not eat anything, though they will accept treats in capitivity. Boldore and Gigalith on the other hand drink mineral water and eat ore, similar to the [[{{FanonPokedex/Aron}} Aron Line's]] dietary habits, in order to maintain their far more high-maintenance cores. In captivity, Boldore and Gigalith can also be fed berries. The former can absorb them using their bottommost crystals, whereas the latter can just eat them like most other Pokémon.

Roggenrola may be small and slow, but they’re also very powerful for their size. If they cannot waddle away from a threat, or harden to the point that it gives up, they will fight against it using bone-breaking headbutts, [[TryingToCatchMeFightingDirty kicking sand or mud in their eyes]], or firing rocks from their ear hole at an assailant’s head and/or chest with deadly precision.

Due to the physical toughness of Roggenrola and its evolutions, the Unovan version of a popular idiom is, "between a Roggenrola and a hard place" to represent two equally tough choices. Gigalith, along with Golems and Golurk are also commonly used in media as guardians for temples, remaining still until approached In recent times, a terrorist cell attempted to use a group of Roggenrola to create a massive death ray powered by their Flash Cannon techniques, but this attempt was thwarted due to the efforts of three young trainers and one lone Roggenrola, whose identities remain unknown as of this writing.

Hailing mainly from the Unova region, the unusual looking Roggenrola line takes a role [[{{Expy}} very similar]] to the Geodude line in the Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh regions. Roggenrola are a relatively new Pokemon to Unova, and the surface world in general, having only appeared in the last 100 years above the surface due to a fissure in the area that would later be known as Wellspring Cave. The first morph, Roggenrola, is a small Pokemon slightly over a foot in height that is circular in shape and brown and blue in coloration, with a [[EyelessFace yellow section on the center surrounding a hexagonal ear]], and a rocky crest on top of their heads. Their unusual features are due to the fact that their original habitat is deep under the earth, leading to their nickname of "The Mantle Pokémon".

Roggenrola are a relatively new Pokemon to Unova, and the surface world in general, having only appeared in the last 100 years above the surface due to a fissure in the area that would later be known as Wellspring Cave.

Roggenrola and its evolutions are naturally found deep underneath the earth, with the majority of the population being located at a depth impossible to reach at the time of this article. As for the Wellspring group, after reaching the surface they quickly established themselves within all of Unova’s caverns through their tunneling system, the largest branches accessible by humans being known as the Relic Path and the Clay Road. Within Kalos they are far rarer due to the presence of the Geodude Line, with the largest population being found within the Reflection Cave. Within Hoenn, a population of Roggenrola has established itself inside the Fiery Path within Mt. Chimney, likely due to the clash between Groudon and Kyogre.

In Alola, two populations are known from the Ten Carat Cavern on Melemele Island, and Vast Poni Canyon on Poni Island.



Though Roggenrola and its evolutions are rather easy-going Pokémon, it would not be a good idea to antagonize them. The rocky bodies of the Roggenrola line make most attacks ineffective against them, forcing Trainers to go into prolonged battles with them unless they have Pokemon capable of piercing Roggenrola’s defensive shell.

Roggenrola may be small and slow, but they’re also very powerful for their size.

Boldore and Gigalith can do everything Roggenrola can, but better, and up their arsenal through causing rock slides, blasting out sediment to create sandstorms, firing pointed stone shards at opponents, surrounding opponents with rocks that slice into any allies that come to help, firing beams of light from their crystals, and firing rocks with such accuracy that they can knock flying or floating Pokémon right out of the air. As a last resort, they can overclock their cores so that everything around them is caught up in a catastrophic explosion. Apart from being temporarily knocked out, they will be left more or less unharmed, unlike their assailants, which may be left [[LudicrousGibs in pieces.]] The area around them may also turn into a small crater from the energy exerted in the blast.

In the case of Gigalith, they can also use their solar radiation blasts or simply crush an enemy under their weight, if they’re close enough. Also, their crystals can leave pretty nasty wounds if a Trainer is careless while handling them. Luckily, their lack of speed means that simply running away is enough to cause them to leave you alone.

Like [[{{FanonPokedex/Psyduck}} Golduck]], Roggenrola are Pokemon that are mainly solitary, but have no problems interacting with others. In the wild, they mainly spend time alone or in groups of two except when there happens to be a particularly large source of water that causes them to converge, or when they’re mating or migrating.

As for the core itself, it is located in the center of the Roggenrola in a holding container filled with a conductive fluid similar to battery acid in acidity. The core is also mildly radioactive, and its energy is transported throughout the Pokémon’s body through a system of canals similar to the organic circulatory system filled with a conducting fluid of much lower acidity. At this stage, the low energy requirements of Roggenrola means that the core is pretty much self-sustaining. However, as the Pokémon gets older, the core has to work harder to power it. If it doesn't evolve in time, however, the Roggenrola will enter a state of torpor to conserve energy and eventually "reboot" itself. One way this torpor state can be hastened is through the use of cold temperatures, similar to the old trick of putting batteries in a refrigerator, though the majority of Roggenrola end up starving when their cores finally stop working.

Gigalith stand five inches less than six feet, with a quadrupedal body, longer, sharper crystals than a Boldore, and a distinct head with well developed eyes and a mouth, the former being a rather strange trait for a primarily subterranean creature. Gigalith crystals have a different lattice structure to that of a Boldore’s, allowing them to absorb as well as fire off energy. When solar energy is absorbed by Gigalith crystals, the Pokemon is capable of magnifying the solar energy gathered in order to fire off devastating blasts of solar radiation from its mouth. At least one Gigalith is recorded as being able to blow away an entire cliffside with the sheer power of its Solarbeam.
