Known as the Seed Pokémon, Bulbasaur resembles a small, squatting dinosaur that walks on four legs and has a large plant bulb on its back that is able to shoot seeds out of. It also has large red eyes and has very sharp teeth. Its skin is a light turquoise color with dark green spots. It has three nails on all its four legs. Its most notable feature, however, is the aforementioned bulb on its back, which as the [[Pokédex]] states, was planted on it at birth.

Bulbasaur resembles a small, squatting dinosaur that walks on four legs and has a large bulb on its back that is able to shoot seeds out of. It also has large red eyes and has very sharp teeth. Its skin is a light turquoise color with dark green spots. It has three claws on all its four legs.

===Abilities===
Bulbasaurs have "bulbs" on their backs that grow steadily larger as the Bulbasaur matures. This bulb contains a seed which uses photosynthesis to supply Bulbasaur with energy. Its bulb is also used to store the energy which the seed absorbs, which can be used when it is necessary. It is assumed that when a Bulbasaur collects enough energy in its bulb, it will [[evolution|evolve]] into an [[Ivysaur]].

===In the manga===
  +

  +
  +
==Trivia==
  +
*Bulbasaur has two main distinctions:
  +
**Bulbasaur is known to be the first Pokémon introduced in the [[National Pokédex]] Order that is a genuine Pokémon.
  +
**Bulbasaur and its evolutions are the only {{type|Poison}} type starter Pokémon and it is the only basic stage starter to be dual-typed, all other basic stage starters are single typed (although some become duel typed but only after one or two evolutions).
  +
*Bulbasaur and its evolutions have the same species as [[Sunkern]]: they are both Seed Pokémon.
  +
  +
===Etymology===
  +
Bulbasaur's appearance is based upon a small dinosaur with a plant growing off its back.
  +
  +
===Names in other languages===
  +
*'''Japanese:''': ''フシギダネ'' (''Fushigidane'' in Romaji) from the Japanese words ''Fushigi'' (不思議), which means strange and ''Tane'' (種), which means seed.
  +
*'''French:''': Bulbizarre from the French words ''bulbe''(bulb) and ''bizarre ''(bizarre).
  +
*'''German:''': Bisasam from the German words ''Bisamratte'' (muskrat) and ''Samen'' (seed).
  +
*'''English''': Bulbasaur is a portmanteau of the words "bulb", a plant term referring to the large bulb on its back, and "dinosaur".

Bulbasaur (Japanese: フシギダネ Fushigidane) is a Grass/Poison-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It is one of the starter Pokémon of the Kanto region.

It, along with Charmander and Squirtle, is a Starter Pokémon of the Kanto region.

BiologyEdit

PhysiologyEdit

Bulbasaur Red & Blue Artwork

Bulbasaur's Red, Blue, & Green artwork.

Bulbasaur resembles a small, squatting dinosaur that walks on four legs and has a large bulb on its back that is able to shoot seeds out of. It also has large red eyes and has very sharp teeth. Its skin is a light turquoise color with dark green spots. It has three claws on all its four legs. Its most notable feature, however, is the aforementioned bulb on its back, which as the Pokédex states, was planted on it at birth.

AbilitiesEdit

Bulbasaurs have "bulbs" on their backs that grow steadily larger as the Bulbasaur matures. This bulb contains a seed which uses photosynthesis to supply Bulbasaur with energy. Its bulb is also used to store the energy which the seed absorbs, which can be used when it is necessary. It is assumed that when a Bulbasaur collects enough energy in its bulb, it will evolve into an Ivysaur.

BehaviorEdit

Bulbasaur is very polite Pokémon. They are very loyal to their trainer and always try their best to win the battle for them.

HabitatEdit

As Bulbasaur is a starter Pokémon, it is hard to locate, however, it could be found near streams.

Gender differencesEdit

AppearancesEdit

In the animeEdit

Main articles: Ash's Bulbasaur and May's Venusaur
Main article: Shauna's Bulbasaur
Main article: Nurse Joy's Bulbasaur
Main article: Gilbert's Bulbasaur

Bulbasaur's debut in the anime was in the first episode, Pokémon - I Choose You, where it can be seen on Ash Ketchum's television in his room and his dream about which starter Pokémon he will select the next day.

Ash Bulbasaur

Ash's Bulbasaur

Ash Ketchum caught a Bulbasaur in Bulbasaur and the Hidden Village. May caught a Bulbasaur in Grass Hysteria.

In the mangaEdit

In the Pokémon Adventures manga, Red chose Bulbasaur, which he nicknamed Saur, as his Starter Pokémon.

TriviaEdit

  • Bulbasaur has two main distinctions:
    • Bulbasaur is known to be the first Pokémon introduced in the National Pokédex Order that is a genuine Pokémon.
    • Bulbasaur and its evolutions are the only Poison type starter Pokémon and it is the only basic stage starter to be dual-typed, all other basic stage starters are single typed (although some become duel typed but only after one or two evolutions).
  • Bulbasaur and its evolutions have the same species as Sunkern: they are both Seed Pokémon.

EtymologyEdit

Bulbasaur's appearance is based upon a small dinosaur with a plant growing off its back.

Names in other languagesEdit

  • Japanese:: フシギダネ (Fushigidane in Romaji) from the Japanese words Fushigi (不思議), which means strange and Tane (種), which means seed.
  • French:: Bulbizarre from the French words bulbe(bulb) and bizarre (bizarre).
  • German:: Bisasam from the German words Bisamratte (muskrat) and Samen (seed).
  • English: Bulbasaur is a portmanteau of the words "bulb", a plant term referring to the large bulb on its back, and "dinosaur".
