Sudowoodo (Japanese: ウソッキー Usokkie) is a Rock-type Pokémon. It is found in the Generation II games blocking the paths between Violet City, Goldenrod City, and Ecruteak City until a 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 -- for instance, Double-Edge.

Sudowoodo evolves from Bonsly in Generation IV.

Biology

Physiology

Gender differences

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

Special abilities

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

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 Rock-type.

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 Kenin experimented on his Sudowoodo to make it strong against Water and it turned golden. The Sudowoodo was upset with the change, and hated Kenin for what he did to it. Kenin 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 Pokémon Special, a Sudowoodo is owned by Emerald. It appears to be a female Sudowoodo, due to its motherly nature.

In the TCG

Other appearances

Super Smash Brothers 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.

Game data

Pokédex entries

Pokémon Gold / Pokémon LeafGreen
Although it always pretends to be a tree, its composition appears to be closer to a rock than a plant.
Pokémon Silver / Pokémon FireRed
It disguises itself as a tree to avoid attack. It hates water, so it will disappear if it starts raining.
Pokémon Crystal
If a tree branch shakes when there is no wind, it's a Sudowoodo, not a tree. It hides from the rain.
Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire
Sudowoodo camoflages itself as a tree to avoid being attacked by enemies. However, because the forelegs remain green throughout the year, the Pokémon is easily identified as a fake during the winter.
Pokémon Emerald
It mimics a tree to avoid being attacked by enemies. But since its forelegs remain green throughout the year, it is easily identified as a fake in the winter.
