Despite its appearance, Sudowoodo is a Rock type Pokemon. Sudowoodo combines the words “pseudo” meaning “false” and “wood”. Thus, the Pokemon is based on petrified wood — trees which have become fossilized over time.
I named a male Sudowoodo after “WoodyAllen”. The filmmaker was a comic genius — but he is also very immoral. I do not find the rock-hard Pokemon to be as disturbing as Mr. Allen however — I nicknamed it thinking of Woody’s “earlier, funnier films”.
I also named a female Sudowoodo “Twiggy” after the famous 1960s fashion model of the same name.
I think that “Twiggy” would also be a good name for Sudowoodo’s pre-evolved form: Bonsly the “bonsai” Pokemon. As Brock can demonstrate, Sudowoodo is called Usokkie ウソッキー , and Bonsly is called Usohachi ウソハチ in the Japanese game.
You know what would be a HOOT? Nickname a Bonsly “Soon-Yi” then put it in your team with your “WoodyAllen” Sudowoodo. Ha Ha. No.
That man is immoral.
