Venusaur (Japanese: フシギバナ Fushigibana) is the type Seed Pokémon. It is the final form of Bulbasaur and evolves from Ivysaur starting at level 32. Venusaur is the version mascot for the games Pokémon Green and Pokémon LeafGreen./ -
PhysiologyVenusaur is a large dinosaur like Pokémon that is somewhat similar in appearance to its pre-evolved forms, Ivysaur and Bulbasaur. Its skin still retains a light turquoise color, but it no longer has the spots, and it appears more rough and scaly with bumps here and there. The former bulb on its back has now fully bloomed into a gigantic flower and its ears have lightened up as well.
Venusaur first appeared in the original Generation I games as the final evolved form of the starter Pokémon Bulbasaur. As with other starter Pokémon and their evolved forms, Venusaur is not obtainable in the wild and must be obtained through trade or by evolving Ivysaur.
