Sudowoodo (Japanese: ウソッキー Usokkie) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon. It is found in the Generation II games blocking the paths between Violet City, Goldenrod City, and Ecruteak City until the player sprays water on it from a Squirtbottle. In Pokémon Colosseum a Shadow Sudowoodo can be found as a snag from Cipher Admin Miror B. in Miror B.'s Hideout. It is also available in Pokémon Emerald.

Sudowoodo comes with one of two abilities: Sturdy, which prevents One-Hit KO attacks from having any effect; or Rock Head, which eliminates the recoil from certain attacks such as Double-Edge.

Sudowoodo evolves from Bonsly in Generation IV.

Biology

Physiology

Sudowoodo has a brown, log-shaped body with some yellow spots on it. It has short legs with toe-less feet. Sudowoodo has club (♣) shaped hands that remain green year-round, thanks to the moss that it always has in its hands. Its face that's similar to Ditto's. Sudowoodo has a forked "branch" on top of its head.

Gender differences

A female has shorter "branches" on the top of its head.

Special abilities

Sudowoodo is most known for Mimicking its opponents' attacks. Sudowoodo is protected from receiving recoil damage when using attacks like Wood Hammer and Double-Edge. As a Rock-type Pokémon, Sudowoodo is capable of a wide variety of Rock and Ground attacks such as Stone Edge and Earthquake. It can also learn Fighting-type attacks, such as Hammer Arm and Brick Break. Sudowoodo can also learn Calm Mind, which is strange due to the fact that Hidden Power is the only Special move that Sudowoodo can use (and very poorly on that note). Even stranger is the fact that Sudowoodo lacks the ability to use Hyper Beam and Giga Impact, despite being a fully evolved Pokémon.

Behavior

Sudowoodo pretends to be a plant, but it is afraid of water, and its composition is closer to a rock than to a plant.

Habitat

Sudowoodo can found living in forests. But finding one can sometimes be a little tricky, since Sudowoodo have the aforementioned habit of pretending to be a tree in order to blend in with their surroundings.

However, during winters, Sudowoodo's camouflage fails. The moss on its hands remain green, even in winter, thus it is easily spotted from true trees. This may cause massive migrations of sudowoodo to more southern areas, where the winter may not affect its camouflage.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

Sudowoodo first appeared in Type Casting. Two Pokémon researchers were arguing whether Sudowoodo was a Grass- or Template:Type2.

A Sudowoodo was pretending to be part of a tree in Camp Pikachu.

A Golden Sudowoodo appeared in All That Glitters is Not Golden. A boy named Keenan experimented on his Sudowoodo to make it strong against Water and it turned golden. The Sudowoodo was upset with the change, and hated Keenan for what he did to it. Keenan managed to turn his Sudowoodo back to normal at the end of the episode.

Brock's Bonsly evolved into Sudowoodo in Leave It To Brocko.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Special manga

In Template:PSV, a Sudowoodo disguises itself as a tree in the middle of Route 37, hiding from a Rhydon. Gold convinced Sudowoodo not to run away from its problems, and Sudowoodo went on to defeat Rhydon in hand-to-hand combat. It soon after joined Gold's team.

A Sudowoodo is captured by Emerald at the Battle Frontier. It appears to be a female Sudowoodo, due to its motherly nature.

In the TCG

Main article: Sudowoodo (TCG)

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. Sudowoodo can be found blocking Route 36 in Johto.
