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

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

Biology

Cradily is a green, plant-like 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. These tentacles are used to capture prey, which is then melted with a strong acid secreted by the tentacles. 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 was seen on beaches.
