PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Using Razor Leaf + Grass Knot, Roserade is one of the best Grass specialists.

  • Roserade is an elite Poison attacker with Poison Jab + Sludge Bomb.

  • Solar Beam is directly inferior to Grass Knot, which is a fantastic Grass-type move.

  • Dazzling Gleam serves no purpose for Roserade on offense.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Razor Leaf is stronger than Poison Jab, but also more widely resisted.

  • Sludge Bomb combines power, an early damage window, and 2 bars.

  • Grass Knot is an okay choice but offers no coverage.

  • Dazzling Gleam has passable neutral coverage, but it’s easy to dodge.

  • Roserade’s durability is too poor to warrant using Solar Beam.

PVE Overview

Every Roserade has its toxic thorns and razor sharp leaves, apparently. Roselia was once ubiquitous but useless, but its evolution justifies the hassle catching them. At the time of writing, Roserade is both the top Grass and Poison attacker in GO. Its glory is mitigated by Grass having lots of competition and Poison being a relatively useless offensive type. Still, its ability to do double duty makes Roselia a good candidate for a Sinnoh Stone and possibly dual charged moves.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Poison Jab+Sludge Bomb and Grass Knot 

Poison Jab is a good attack in PVP, sporting 3 DPT (Damage Per Turn), 3.5 EPT (Energy Per Turn), and the fairly rarely encountered Poison type. It naturally pairs with Sludge Bomb (80 Power/50 Energy) to make Roserade a poison-type attacker, and is further complimented by Grass Knot (90 Power/50 Energy) as a second, neutrally stronger STAB move.

Poison Jab+Sludge Bomb and Dazzling Gleam
This set focuses on taking advantage of Roserade's typing to use it as a non-conventional counter to Fighting-types. Dazzling Gleam (110 Power/70 Energy) is expensive, but powerful. It can deal heavy damage to fighting-type Pokemon, and can take many common dragon or dark type Pokemon by surprise. 

Poison Jab+Grass Knot and Dazzling Gleam

This set is similar to the one above, but it foregoes the use of Sludge Bomb for the superior neutral damage of Grass Knot. This set is viable, though Sludge Bomb is preferred as one of the main reasons to use Roserade is for its poison-type coverage.

Note on Razor Leaf:

Razor Leaf has 5.5 DPT and 2 EPT. It's definitely a good quick-move for PVP, but its niche is best used on bulky Pokemon with low-cost charged moves. While most of Roserade's chagred moves aren't terribly expensive, Poison Jab's more well-rounded energy/damage profile is preferred here, as Roserade's stats are more offensively-oriented, meaning going with Razor Leaf could potentially cost the use of multiple charged-moves, and it may very well faint before using even one Dazzling Gleam.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 0 / 5

Roserade's offensively-oriented stat-spread leaves it horribly weak and outclassed in the Great League. Venusaur or Victreebel can fill the same niche to a much better degree.

Ultra League: 1 / 5

Roserade is once again out-classed in the Ultra League. Its typing can be leveraged against Fighting types in particular in order to act as a surprise counter, and its grass/poison typing allows it to double-resist pure grass types while hitting back super-effectively with its own poison moves, but once again Victreebel can do the same thing better, and Venusaur is leagues better in regards to the grass-side with the same typing.

Master League: 1 / 5

Roserade is finally unbound in the Master League! ....but it's still out-classed. Its high damage lets it finally beat out Victreebel, but that's about the only note-worthy achievement. Its skills are not in very high demand, it's still frail, and it has huge issues with many, many common Pokemon in the tier. It's probably best to leave Roserade out of your PVP teams....
