Shiny Budew, Roselia and Roserade
Roserade will gain access to the Fire type version of Charge Attack move Weather Ball.
Weather Ball is a 3 bar charge move, with a base power of 60 in both PVE and PVP. It requires 35 energy to charge.
Gaining access to Fire type Weather Ball is an interesting choice for Roserade in terms of PVP. It gives it some interesting coverage, giving it a weapon against the Ice and Bug types it is weak to, and giving it an advantage over other Grass types it may come up against. It also gives Roserade an effective move against Steel types, giving it potential as a Registeel counter.
Currently Roserade isn’t particularly a highly ranked Pokémon in Great League or Ultra League, so it will be interesting to see if these moves updates make Roserade a spicy pick!
Roserade will gain access to the Grass type Fast Attack Bullet Seed.
In PVE Bullet Seed deals 8 damage and generates 14 energy towards a Charge Attack. It has a 1.1s cooldown and it deals damage between in the 0.85s to 1.05s animation interval.
In PVP Bullet Seed deals 5 damage and generates 13 energy.
Currently Roserade has access to Razor Leaf as their best option for a Grass type Fast Attack. Razor Leaf deals 13 damage and generates 7 energy in Pokemon GO. It has a 1s cooldown and it deals damage between in the 0.6s to 0.85s animation interval in PVE. In PVP deals 11 damage and generates 4 energy.
This means Bullet Seed charges much quicker than Razor Leaf, making it a great choice of Fast Attack for PVP even though it deals less energy, getting you to that much needed Charged Attack much more quickly.
