Ivysaur is a Grass / Poison-type Pokémon that evolves from Bulbasaur at Level 16, and evolves into Venusaur at Level 32.


Ivysaur is a quadruped Pokémon with blue-green skin with darker patches. On top of its head are pointed ears with black inside, and it has narrow red eyes. It has a short, rounded snout with a wide mouth. Two pointed teeth protrude from its upper jaw. Each of its feet have three claws on them.

The bulb on its back as a Bulbasaur has bloomed into a large pink bud. A short brown trunk surrounded by leafy green fronds supports the bud.

The weight of the plant prevents Ivysaur from easily standing on its hind legs and forces its legs to grow sturdy.

When Ivysaur's bud is ready to bloom, it gives off a distinct, strong sweet-smelling aroma and starts swelling.


Ivysaur will start spending more time in sunlight in preparation for its upcoming evolution.


Exposure to sunlight adds to the strength of both Ivysaur and its plant.


Ivysaur can be found in plains, forests and jungles.
