'''Bulbasaur''' (Japanese: '''フシギダネ''' ''Fushigidane'') is the {{Type|Grass}}/{{Type|Poison}}-[[Types|type]] Seed [[Starter Pokémon]] of the [[Kanto]] region and is the initial Pokémon in the [[National Pokédex]], numbered #001 (other than the unofficial [[Missingno]], which is #000).
 
   
== Appearance ==
 
[[File:Old_bulbasaur.jpg|frame|Bulbasaur's Red, Blue, & Green artwork]]
 
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.
 
 
=== Habitat ===
 
As Bulbasaur is a starter Pokémon, it is hard to locate, however, it could be found near streams.
 
 
== Special 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]].
 
 
 
 
==Appearances==
 
===In the anime===
 
Bulbasaur's debut in the [[Pokémon Anime|anime]] was in the first episode, ''[[IL001: Pokémon - I Choose You!|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.''

== Origins ==
 
Bulbasaur's appearance is based upon a small dinosaur with a plant growing off its back.
 
 
=== Name Origin ===
 
* '''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".
 
 
== Trivia ==
 
* Bulbasaur uses the bulb on its back to store extra energy. This makes it possible for Bulbasaur to survive for days without eating.
 
* Bulbasaur and its evolutions are the only {{type|Poison}} type starter Pokémon. Because of this, it is the only basic stage starter to be dual-typed.
 
* Bulbasaur and its evolutions have the same species as [[Sunkern]]: they are both Seed Pokémon.
 
* Although Bulbasaur is a quadrupedal Pokémon, it has the ability to stand on its two hind legs until it evolves into Ivysaur.
 
* Bulbasaur is the first grass type starter.
 
* Bulbasaur is known to be the first Pokémon introduced in the [[National Pokédex]] Order.
