Due to being a Rock-type Pokemon, Bonsly is weakest against Steel and Water types in battle. Some examples are Dialga, Kyogre, and Palkia. On the other hand, Bonsly is strong against Normal and Flying-type Pokemon, such as Arceus, Lugia, Ho-Oh, and Rayquaza. The best items to use on Bonsly are Rock Incense, Hard Stone, and Stone Plate. It has a faster than normal growth rate and is able to learn Egg Moves. Some of these include but are not limited to, Harden, Defense Curl, and Rollout.
