I stood in shock at the heartless Cradily not taking the bait. If things were to have gone right, it would've gone to Sudowoodo, where the rocky tree would have used Sucker Punch on it. But since it didn't work, I had to create a plan from scratch. And then it came to me: if I couldn't get Cradily to go to Sudowoodo, I'd get Sudowoodo to come to Cradily and attack. After all, it had began to use the move Stockpile; meaning that it would probably not attack for a short while. Close combat was exactly what I could use to my advantage at this time, and it might weaken the ancient flower species enough for me to throw the Park Ball at it and probably capture.
Now I said "Sudowoodo, it's time to get into some hand-to-hand combat! Get up close to Cradily and use Hammer Arm to weaken it! If things go right, then it will weaken to a point of almost fainting." I was very confident Sudowoodo would follow this command, as it had a great fondness of this style of battling. If it didn't obey though, then I'd have to improvise in yet another way to suit the tree, which has most certainly not changed its battling style from the time I had gotten it all that time ago. Maybe a strategy that stooped even lower than last time would work, I never knew.
