Bonsly (ウソハチ) is the 92nd Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Rock-Type, and it is known as the Bonsai Pokémon.

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 gain the opportunity to evolve into Sudowoodo if it levels up when it knows the move Mimic.

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.
