Sudowoodo (ウソッキー) is the 107th Pokémon in the Johto Pokédex. It is a Rock-Type, and is known as the Imitation Pokémon.

Sudowoodo can use one of two Abilities: Sturdy, which protects it from One-Hit KO moves and allows it to survive a move that would have defeated it if it has full HP; or Rock Head, which prevents it from taking any recoil as the result of moves that cause recoil damage. Its Hidden Ability is Rattled, which increases its Speed by one stage if it gets hit by a move of the Bug, Ghost, or Dark Type.

When it was introduced in Generation II, Sudowoodo couldn't evolve and didn't have a pre-evolved form, but could evolve from Bonsly starting in Generation IV if it levels up while it knows the move Mimic.

Sudowoodo is in the Mineral Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It can also breed a Bonsly Egg if it is holding a Rock Incense when breeding, an Egg that also takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Sudowoodo One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Biology

Physiology

Bonsly takes on the appearance of a brown tree with what appears to be small leaves on its arms. However, despite its appearance it isn't a tree--it's really made of rock.

Gender Differences

The small branches on its head, which makes up its crown, is larger on the male than the female.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Sudowoodo finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling in Generation V. It does have one thing that separates it from other Rock-Type Pokémon that are in the Tier: access to Wood Hammer, which can cause a lot of damage to unsuspecting Water and Ground Types that would otherwise expect an easy victory. Plus, with Trick Room support its low Speed suddenly becomes an asset, and it can also utilize Stealth Rock, but Special Attackers and Pokémon with a high Defense will cause Sudowoodo many problems.
