Roggenrola develops at what level


Kiesling is a rock-type Pokémon and has existed since the fifth generation of the game. It is the predevelopment of Sedimantur, which in turn can develop into Brockoloss.

In the anime it has some more important appearances as Ash's Kiesling, which later evolves into Sedimantur.


Appearance and build

Kiesling's body consists of a dark blue, round but angular stone in the middle, two brown stone feet and a stone that is also brown and pointed downwards, attached to the top of the body. His torso, i.e. the blue, round part of his body, has a hexagonal hollow at the front, which represents Kiesling's ear. The sides of this cavity appear yellow, the hexagonal hole in the middle, in which Kiesling carries his energy core, is black. This ear can enlarge and reduce it as you like. Overall, Kiesling's appearance is reminiscent of a geode. Its body consists of centuries-old soil, which has been compressed so much under the earth for a long time that it is now at least as hard as steel.

In the shimmering shape, the yellow sides of his ear are orange, his body, which was previously dark blue, is given a purple color, and his brown feet and the stone that is in the upper part of the body are now purple-gray.

Attacks and abilities

Kiesling throws boulders

Kiesling's strengths are on the physical side, but it is especially weak and also slow. Depending on his species and rock type, Kiesling can learn many rock-type attacks, such as rock-throwing, catapult, camouflage stones, hail of stones or stone edge, all of which are fired at the target with stones, thrown at them, slashed, buried under rubble or right next to them Entering the battle with stones is injured. Examples of his status attacks are hardeners and iron defense, with which it becomes even more robust. With the attacks of sand vortex and clay clamp, it can also throw sand and mud in the face of the opponent, so that it is more difficult for him to hit Kiesling. The strongest attack Kiesling can learn is explosion, but it can only use it once as it defeats itself.

Kiesling's abilities include toughness, fracture armor, and his hidden ability, Sand Force. The robustness, which prevents Kiesling from being directly defeated with an attack at full HP, is explained by the hardness and resistance of the rock material from which it is made. Should Kiesling have the ability to break armor and be attacked by a physical attack, parts of him splinter off, making it easier, but also more vulnerable. The Sand Force skill is only useful for Kiesling when a sand storm is in effect, which it can cause itself with the Sandstorm attack. In this case, the strength of all attacks of the steel, rock and ground type increases.

Behavior and habitat

Kiesling was born deep underground and is also native there in caves. It was first discovered in a crevice after a major earthquake a century ago. Since it has no eyes, it has to rely on its hearing because with the hole in its body it can hear sounds. If someone tries to reach into the ear, Kiesling gets angry. It moves towards heard sources of noise, but is completely at a loss and falls over as soon as the noises stop. He makes friends with Kleinstein and Rocara, whereby Kiesling and the two sometimes have small competitions in which they see whose body is the toughest.


The earth mantle Pokémon Kiesling represents the first part of a three-stage development line. It is the one that can develop into Sedimantur that in turn can evolve into Brockoloss.

In the course of developments, Kiesling gets bigger and heavier and develops from a small stone to a large boulder. Furthermore, it forms numerous angular orange-red energy crystals distributed over its body. The hexagonal hollow in Kiesling now represents the eyes instead of the ear in Sedimantur and Brockoloss.

The development to Sedimantur is triggered as soon as Kiesling reaches at least level 25, to Brockoloss it develops when Sedimantur is exchanged for another Pokémon.
