Bulbasaur (Japanese: フシギダネ Fushigidane) is the Grass/Poison-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).

Biology

Appearance

File:Old bulbasaur.jpg

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 evolve into an Ivysaur.


Appearances

In the anime

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.

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 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.
