Sudowoodo (Japanese: ウソッキー Usokkie) is a Rock-type Pokémon introduced in Generation II.

It evolves from Bonsly when leveled up while knowing Mimic.

In Generation II, its remakes, and Pokémon Emerald, wild Sudowoodo can be found blocking the road in inconvenient locations in Johto and Hoenn. In order to engage it in battle, a Trainer must first squirt it with water from either a SquirtBottle or Wailmer Pail.

Biology

Sudowoodo is a Pokémon that has a brown, log-shaped body with yellow spots. It has short legs with toeless feet, and thin forelegs with three green spheres at the ends of its fingers. It has a forked "branch" on top of its head, which is shorter on the female than on the male. Despite its appearance, Sudowoodo's composition is closer to a rock than a plant. Originally, it was incorrectly believed to be a Grass-type.

Sudowoodo disguises itself as a tree and stands along paths to avoid being attacked. Sudowoodo's camouflage fails in the winter, as its forelegs remain green, unlike real trees. Sudowoodo is very weak to water and hates it, so whenever it starts to rain, it will break their disguise and flee to the nearest source of shelter. Because it holds its position for so long, its arms have become supple yet strong. It is popular with the elderly, with available magazines and fans devoted to its arm angle and length. Sudowoodo can be found living in forests. In Generation II, Mimic was its signature move.

Major appearances

Brock's Sudowoodo

Brock's Bonsly evolved into a Sudowoodo in Leave It To Brocko!. Although he was needy and easily distressed as a Bonsly, Sudowoodo proved a strong and reliable partner.

Other

Sudowoodo debuted in Type Casting. Two Pokémon researchers, Marie and Pierre, were arguing over the issue of whether Sudowoodo as a species is a Grass- or Rock-type. As a result, they pursued one in order to prove their own points to each other.

In Camp Pikachu, a Sudowoodo pretended to be part of a tree and hoarded grapes for itself rather than share them with the Pichu Brothers.

In All That Glitters is Not Golden!, Keenan owns a golden Sudowoodo. He experimented on it with the hopes of giving it resistance against Water-type Pokémon, but he made it turn golden in color in the process. Sudowoodo, however, was unhappy with the change and was eventually reverted to its previous type and color scheme.

In Pikachu and the Pokémon Music Squad, a Sudowoodo noticed the fight among Meowth, Chespin, and a Torchic over a Pecha Berry.

In The Power of Us, Callahan saved a Sudowoodo by catching the Golduck that was chasing it. Afterwards, it followed Callahan around before being caught by him.

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. A Sudowoodo can be found blocking Route 36 in Johto.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Sudowoodo appears as a Spirit.

Trivia

Origin

Sudowoodo seems to be based on a small tree and petrified wood, which is a plant that has become fossilized over time. This would explain its pure Rock type since all of the organic material in petrified wood is replaced with minerals. It may also be based on the concept of mimicry.

Name origin

Sudowoodo may be a corruption of pseudo (false) and wood.

Usokkie may be a combination of 嘘 uso (false) and 木 ki (wood or tree). It could also derive from 嘘つき usotsuki (liar).
