Cradily is an aquatic creature that makes its nest in the shallows of warm seas. For this reason, when the tide goes out, Cradily can be seen on what are now wet beaches. In a particularly turbulent area of the sea shore, Cradily anchors itself to the sea floor with its heavy, particularly shaped lower body so as to prevent itself from being washed out to sea.


When hunting marine creatures, Cradily makes its way deeper into the ocean, dragging its heavy body along as its body’s anchor-like composition prevents Cradily from floating off the sea floor and to the surface. When Cradily spots its prey, it extends its trunk-like neck and its eight tentacles to ensnare its target, where it uses powerful acid secreted in its tentacles to melt the prey before feeding.


Role

In the video games

Cradily is only obtained from evolving Lileep at level 40. Lileep can only be found as a single Pokémon in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire and Pokémon Emerald. The player can also dig it up in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl in the underground. The Hoenn Pokemon League Champion Steven (only in Ruby and Sapphire) owns a level 56 Cradily.

Pokémon Diamond , Pocket Monsters Diamond) and Pokémon Pearl , Pocket Monsters Pearl) are a pair of role-playing video games developed by Game Freak and published by Nintendo for the Nintendo DS handheld video game console. ...


Cradily has decent attack statistics and very good defensive statistics, augmented by its Rock/Grass type which in turn gives it weaknesses to Ice, Bug, Fighting and Steel-type moves and resistances to Normal and Electric-type moves. Its movepool is quite variable, having access to strong offensive moves such as Earthquake, Sludge Bomb and STAB-boosted Ancient Power and Giga Drain, as well as annoyance moves such as Confuse Ray and stat-raising moves such as Amnesia (and Barrier through breeding), whose effects are further supported by Cradily’s Suction Cups ability, which prevents it from being Roared or Whirlwinded out of battle by the enemy and thus losing its stat boosts. With other moves like Ingrain and Rest available (and Recover through breeding), Cradily is an excellent Tank Pokémon (one that lasts long against opponent’s attacks).


In the Pokémon anime

Cradily has appeared in the following episode:

  • Episode 379: Where's Armaldo?

In this episode, Ash and the gang head toward an island that has broken off of the mainland. On it exists many fossilized pokémon including Lileep, Cradily, Armaldo, and Anorith.
