Bonsly can use one of two Abilities: Sturdy, which prevents it from getting KO'd if its HP is full or is hit by a One-Hit KO move; or Rock Head, which nullifies the recoil from moves that cause recoil. A third Ability is available to Bonsly from the Dream World, the Rattled Ability. This Ability increases its Speed by one stage if it gets hit by a Bug, Ghost, or Dark-Type move.
Bonsly is in the Undiscovered Egg Group, but a Sudowoodo can still breed a Bonsly if it is holding a Rock Incense. Its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Bonsly One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
Bonsly is a brown Pokémon with a round body, resembling a potted plant. It has a rim-like structure under its moth that runs around its body, and it has two yellow eyes with another yellow spot above its eyes. At the top of its body, there is a cross or three green spheres, which resembles the "plant" part of Bonsly.
