Bayleef (Japanese: ベイリーフ Beiriifu) is the evolved form of the Grass-type Starter Pokémon of the Johto region's Chikorita.

Biology

Physiology

Bayleef is a yellow, dinosaur-like Pokémon. Around its neck are several small leaves that Bayleef can shoot at opponents. There is also a large leaf on its head, which it inherits from its pre-evolution, Chikorita. This Pokémon is derived from a sauropod.

Behavior

It is very outgoing like Chikorita, but more cautious. It looks up to Meganium and other grass types for knowledge. It will hide from danger and have its mother fend for her young. If anything were to happen to the mother, it won't take care of its siblings, and rather join other grass types for protection, or join a herd of traveling Meganium. There have been instances where Chikorita joined groups of Jumpluff for help. Bayleef often can fend for themselves.

Evolution

Bayleef is the evolved form of Chikorita. Starting at level 32, it can evolve into a Meganium.
