Bulbasaur is a Grass/Poison-type Pokémon that evolves into Ivysaur at Lv. 16, which evolves into Venusaur at Lv. 32.


Bulbasaur is a small, quadruped Pokémon that has blue-green skin with darker green patches. It has red eyes with white pupils and pointed, ear-like structures on top of its head. Its snout is short and blunt, and it has a wide mouth. A pair of small, pointed teeth are visible in the upper jaw when its mouth is open. Each of its thick legs ends with three sharp claws. On its back is a green plant bulb, which is grown from a seed planted there at birth. The bulb provides it with energy through photosynthesis as well as from the nutrient-rich seeds contained within.

It has been observed that a Bulbasaur's bulb will flash blue when it is ready to evolve.


Bulbasaur is known to be extremely loyal, even after a long-term abandonment.

Bulbasaur has shown itself to be an excellent caretaker.

Many Bulbasaur gather every year in a hidden garden in Kanto to evolve into Ivysaur in a ceremony led by a Venusaur.


Bulbasaur can be found in grasslands, forests and jungles.
