Bonsly (ウソハチ, Usohachi) is a creature in the Pokémon media franchise.


Bonsly is a Rock-type baby Pokémon formally part of Generation IV, but actually making its debut, even being playable in a limited capacity, in the Generation III game Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness. Bonsly is categorized within the Pokédex at #438 as the "Bonsai Pokémon". It evolves into Sudowoodo when it levels up while knowing Mimic.

Tackle is a Normal-type move with 40 base power and 100% accuracy (35 and 95% before Generation V, 50 and 100% from then until Generation VI) and no added effects. It is a very basic move which consist in a simple charge against a single opponent, and it is part of the starting moveset of many Pokémon. However, Bonsly could not learn the move until Pokémon Legends: Arceus, which released long after Super Smash Bros. Brawl.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

As a Poké Ball Pokémon[edit]

Bonsly is one of the Pokémon that appears out of a Poké Ball. If it is not picked up, it will walk back and forth along the ground, similar to a Bob-omb, and can also fall off cliffs. It can be picked up, and despite its small size, its heavy weight makes it behave like a Crate instead of a common item. It can then be thrown at enemies, and while it doesn't fly very far it inflicts 30% damage with heavy knockback, not depending on how it is thrown. After being thrown it also bounces along the ground for a while, retaining its hitboxes. Like any thrown item, Bonsly can be reflected. It can usually only be thrown 3 times before disappearing, but will still disappear on its own after a while.

As it grows, it will become skilled at using Mimic, which allows it to copy an opponent's previous move. If it levels up under certain conditions, it evolves into Sudowoodo.
