Roselia is a Grass-type and Poison-type Pokemon first introduced in Generation III in Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. Roselia evolves from Budew and can evolve into Roserade with a shiny stone. Alongside evolving from Budew, there are also multiple areas you can explore to encounter Roselia. By the end of this guide, you will learn how to get Roselia in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
How to Get Roselia in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
There are several locations where you can get Roselia in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. You can catch Roselia on Routes 212, 221, 224, 225 and 229. Out of these locations, you will have the greatest chance of encountering Roselia on the southern part of Route 212 and Route 224. Roselia is also commonly encountered in the Trophy Garden and the Great Marsh. You may also find Roselia in the Grand Underground. Roselia is found in the following areas in the Grand Underground:
- Grassland Cave
- Swampy Cave
- Sunlit Cavern
- Bogsunk Cavern
Alternatively, you can evolve the Pokemon Budew into Roselia. To evolve Budew into Roselia, you must level up Budew with high friendship during the day. If you do not yet have Budew, you can find wild Budew on Routes 204 and 212, in the Eterna Forest, and within the Great Marsh. Out of these four main locations, you will have the greatest chance at encountering Budew on Route 212. You can also find Budew in the Grand Underground. Like Roselia, you can find Budew in Grassland Cave and Sunlit Cavern. Additionally, you may encounter Budew in Still-Water Cavern, Spacious Cave, and Riverbank Cave. Evolving Budew is another way to get Roselia if you do not have much luck with encounters.
Once you have obtained Roselia, you can use a shiny stone to evolve it into Roserade. Roselia will evolve into Roserade upon being exposed to the shiny stone. There are no other requirements for evolution to occur. Use the shiny stone in your bag on Roselia to activate the evolution. If you do not already have one, you can find shiny stones on Iron Island and Route 228.
