Cradily (Japanese: ユレイドル Yuradle) is a dual-type Rock/Grass Fossil Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Lileep starting at level 40, after it is revived from a Root Fossil.

Contents

Biology

Cradily is a green, plantlike Pokémon with various yellow markings on its head, neck, and torso. There are circular, yellow eyespots on its head. However, its true eyes are concealed inside the dark, crescent opening on its head. Surrounding its head at the base are eight pink tentacles, which somewhat resemble flower petals. Its long, flexible neck has yellow bands in the center, and it can be extended to assist in capturing prey. Its body is short and squat with four stubby growths and a yellow, oval, target-like pattern on the chest.

In order to prevent being washed away by ocean tides, the body of this Pokémon is heavy. In ancient times it built its nest in the shallows of warm seas. When the tide went out, it came up on land to search for prey. It then uses its tentacles to capture them and melts them with strong digestive acidic fluid secreted by the tentacles.

In Dealing With Defensive Types!, a Cradily sent Team Rocket blasting off from the Canalave Gym with Energy Ball.

Trivia

  • Cradily is the only Pokémon with Pokéathlon stats where each one is a different level.
  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Cradily and its pre-evolved form.
    • Furthermore, Cradily and its pre-evolved form consist of the two types with the most weaknesses, Grass and Rock, but they have only four weaknesses.
  • Cradily and its pre-evolved form are the only Grass-type Pokémon that belong in the Water 3 Egg Group.
  • The Lileep family has only been obtainable with their Hidden Ability in the Pokémon Dream World. Due to the closure of the Pokémon Global Link, the Lileep family can no longer be obtained with their Hidden Ability, except by breeding.

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Cradily may be based on crinoids (also known as sea lilies), extant marine animals. Crinoid fossils are particularly abundant, possibly inspiring Cradily's status as a fossil Pokémon. It also bears resemblance to the predatory tunicate.

Name origin

Cradily may be a combination of cradle and lily. It may also be a combination of crag or crazily and lily.

Yuradle may be a combination of 百合 yuri (lily), 揺り籠 yurikago (cradle), and cradle.
