Name: Roselia - Tier High / Mid
Availability: Roselia starts appearing in Lostlorn Forest. Unfortunately, it only has a 15% chance of appearing...
Stats: Roselia's high base 100 Sp. Attack lets it hit hard with special attacks.
Typing: Sadly, Grass / Poison isn't the best typing. It's weak to many gyms and only effective against Clay and Marlon.
Movepool: Roselia's movepool is relatively shallow, but has some very powerful moves such as Petal Dance and Venoshock. Luckily, you get Venoshock before you get Roselia and it can learn Toxic. Two Base 100+ STABS are really powerful and can even rip through Pokemon that resist the hits.
Major Battles: Roselia handles Marlon and Clay really well. Using Petal Dance completely obliterates their Pokemon. Unfortunately, Elite 4 Caitlin gives Roselia some trouble. Luckily, it handles Marshal well, resisting his Fighting-type assualts.
Additional Comments: Overall, Petal Dance is an extremely threatening move to any Pokemon. It has the power 2HKO most Pokemon that even resist the hit! Toxic+Venoshock is also a viable combo, with immense power after the Pokemon is poisoned.
