Sudowoodo (Japanese: ウソッキー Usokkie) is a Rock-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves from Bonsly when leveled up while knowing Mimic.

In Generation II, its remakes and Pokémon Emerald, wild Sudowoodo can be found blocking the road in inconvenient locations in Johto and Hoenn. In order to catch one, a Trainer must first squirt it with water from either a SquirtBottle or Wailmer Pail.

Contents

Biology

Sudowoodo has a brown, log-shaped body with yellow spots. It has short legs with toeless feet and thin forelegs with three green spheres at the ends. It has a forked "branch" on top of its head, which is shorter on the female than on the male. Despite its appearance, Sudowoodo's composition is closer to a rock than a plant.

Sudowoodo disguises itself as a tree and stands along paths to avoid being attacked. Its camouflage fails in the winter, as its forelegs remain green unlike real trees. Sudowoodo is very weak to water and hates it, so it flees when it starts to rain. Because it holds its position for so long, its arms have become supple yet strong. It is popular with the elderly, with available magazines and fans devoted to its arm angle and length. Sudowoodo can be found living in forests.

Major appearances

Brock's Sudowoodo

Brock's Bonsly evolved into Sudowoodo in Leave It To Brocko!. Although needy and easily distressed as a Bonsly, as a Sudowoodo, he proved a strong and reliable partner.

Other

Sudowoodo debuted in Type Casting. Two Pokémon researchers, Marie and Pierre, were arguing over the issue of whether Sudowoodo as a species is a Grass- or Rock-type. As a result, they pursued one in order to prove their own points to each other.

A Sudowoodo appeared in Camp Pikachu, where it was pretending to be part of a tree and greedily kept some grapes for itself rather than share them with the Pichu Brothers.

A golden Sudowoodo appeared in All That Glitters is Not Golden, under the ownership of Keenan. He experimented on it with the hopes of giving it a resistance against the Water-type Pokémon, but he made it turn golden in color in the process. Sudowoodo, however, was unhappy with the change, and was eventually reverted to its previous type and coloration.

A Sudowoodo appeared in Pikachu and the Pokémon Music Squad. It noticed the fight between Meowth, Chespin, and a Torchic over a Pecha Berry.

A Sudowoodo appeared in The Power of Us, under the ownership of Callahan. Callahan saved Sudowoodo by catching the Golduck that was chasing it. Afterwards, it followed Callahan around before being caught by him.

In Smeargle Smudge, a Sudowoodo disguises himself as a tree in the middle of Route 37, hiding from a Rhydon. In How Do You Do, Sudowoodo, he revealed himself to Gold after being hit with Polibo's Water Gun.

He soon joined Gold's team with the nickname Sudobo and participated in his friendly match against Silver, and later the Masked Man.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Sudowoodo is a Poké Float. After Wooper first appears, it will move down the right of the screen while Sudowoodo is on the left. Unlike most of the Poké Floats, players are not required to ever go on Sudowoodo. A trophy of Sudowoodo can be obtained after playing on the Poké Floats stage.

Trophy information

An imitation Pokémon with an aversion to battle, Sudowoodo always poses as a tree in order to avoid being attacked. Despite their arboreal appearance, these Pokémon are actually Rock-types, and therefore highly vulnerable to water. When it begins to rain, they vanish. A Sudowoodo can be found blocking Route 36 in Johto.
