===={{series|Diamond & Pearl}}====
When Brock joined up with Ash in [[Sinnoh]], Bonsly was the only Pokémon he brought with him. Bonsly had shown signs of maturation, eventually learning the [[move]] Mimic in ''[[DP013|A Staravia Is Born!]]''. In [[DP014|the next episode]], after being captured by {{TRT}}, Bonsly [[Evolution|evolved]] into {{p|Sudowoodo}} to help free Brock and a {{p|Nuzleaf}}, defeating [[James's Carnivine]] in a {{pkmn|battle}}. He was also shown to have gained a significant increase in his power and battling skills. Instead of being needy and heavily reliant on Brock's care, Sudowoodo was eager to help Brock in almost any task. He also has an odd tendency to {{wp|salute}} Brock whenever he is called from his [[Poké Ball]].

In ''[[DP050|Tag! We're It...!]]'', Sudowoodo was used in the first round of the [[Hearthome City Tag Battle Competition]]. It was paired off with [[Holly]]'s {{p|Wingull}} and was up against a {{p|Yanma}} and {{p|Bagon}}. Wingull attacked with {{m|Blizzard}} but was countered by Yanma's {{m|Steel Wing}} while Sudowoodo used Double-Edge against Bagon's {{m|Zen Headbutt}}. While their opponents argue about strategy, Sudowoodo uses Flail and Wingull performs {{m|Aerial Ace}} to defeat their Pokémon and advance to the next round.

Being much younger than the other Pokémon in {{ashfr|the group}}, Bonsly was portrayed as needy, childlike, and easily upset. Brock was often seen bottle-feeding him until he could eat solid {{pkmn|food}}. Since his [[evolution]], he has matured and is no longer a crybaby. In fact, he is very upbeat, as seen in ''[[DP033|All Dressed Up With Somewhere to Go!]]'', when he recovered from a crushing disappointment almost instantly.

Bonsly occasionally took over from [[Max]] in getting Brock away from girls. However, rather than pull his ear, Bonsly would hit him with a powerful {{m|Double-Edge}}. He apparently did not want to share Brock, his "parent", with anyone else.
