Roggenrola is a roughly spherical Pokémon discovered a century ago in an earthquake fissure. Its body is blue and covered in large, smooth facets. It has a hexagonal, yellow artifice in the center of its body, leading to a hexagonal opening that functions as an ear. Roggenrola has a brown, rocky oblong atop its head, and similar brown rocks that serve as feet. Its body houses an energy core; due to compression underground, both this core and Roggenrola's body are as hard as steel.
Roggenrola is born deep underground, and compares its hard body with that of Geodude and Carbink. As stated by Cilan in Where Did You Go, Audino?, Roggenrola has sensitive hearing and can hear sounds that are inaudible to humans. It tends to follow the sounds it picks up with its lone ear, panicking if these sounds cease. Dwebble is a natural enemy of Roggenrola. Sometimes Rhyperior mistakes this Pokémon for an ordinary rock and fires them through their hands.
- Roggenrola is similar to Geodude: Both are Rock-type, have Sturdy as one their Abilities, evolve at level 25 and reach their final forms when traded.
- Roggenrola is tied with Rockruff for the lowest base stat total of all Rock-type Pokémon.
- In Unova, there is a televised version of bowling that uses Roggenrola as balls. There is a chance of explosion, depending on the Roggenrola.
- Roggenrola is the only Pokémon from Generation V to consist only of a head and legs.
Roggenrola is based on a geode.
Roggenrola is a corruption of rock and roll. It may, more specifically, be based on the pronunciation of "rock-'n'-roller" (a slang term for musicians who play rock and roll) in certain dialects of English.
Dangoro may be a combination of 団子 dango (a Japanese dumpling) and ゴロ goro (grounder). It may also derive from ゴロゴロ goro goro (onomatopoeia for the sound of a boulder rolling).
