Ivysaur (Japanese: フシギソウ Fushigisou) is a dual-type Grass/Poison Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves from Bulbasaur starting at level 16 and evolves into Venusaur starting at level 32.

Biology

Ivysaur is a quadrupedal amphibian Pokémon that has blue-green skin with darker patches. On top of its head are pointed ears with black insides and it has narrow red eyes. Ivysaur has a short, rounded snout with a wide mouth and two pointed teeth in its upper jaw. Each of its feet has three claws on them. The bulb on its back has bloomed into a large pink bud. A short brown trunk surrounded by leafy green fronds supports the bud.

The weight of the plant prevents Ivysaur from running fast and standing on its hind legs, forcing its legs to grow sturdy. When its flower is ready to bloom, it gives off a distinct, sweet-smelling aroma and starts swelling. Ivysaur will also start spending more time in sunlight in preparation for its upcoming evolution. Exposure to sunlight adds to the strength of both Ivysaur and its plant. As shown in Pokémon Sleep, Ivysaur is known to sleep in sunny spots while undergoing its photosynthesis process. Researchers cannot decide if Ivysaur is awake or asleep during this process.[1] Ivysaur are typically found in plains.

Evolution

Ivysaur evolves from Bulbasaur and evolves into Venusaur.

Trophy information

"A Seed Pokémon that is the evolved form of Bulbasaur. It has a flower bulb on its back, the weight of which has made it develop strong legs and hips. If the blossom gets too big, it can't stand on two legs alone. At a certain level, it evolves into Venusaur. When this happens, the bulb absorbs nutrients and blossoms into a large-petaled flower."

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U

Trophy information

NA: Watching your starter Pokémon evolve is an unforgettable experience. For many trainers, that first happened when Bulbasaur became Ivysaur. It might be difficult to say good-bye to cute little Bulbasaur, but before they know it, they'll be saying bye to Ivysaur, too, as it turns into a fully grown Venusaur!

Trivia

Origin

Ivysaur's evolutionary family is inspired by frogs.[2] In particular, its short legs, stout appearance, and ear-like protrusions on its head make it resemble horned frogs. Of its evolutionary family, Ivysaur was the first to be created, years before Bulbasaur, Venusaur or the concept of evolution was conceived, as it was one of the original monsters created for the Capsule Monsters pitch.[3] Venusaur and Bulbasaur's designs were created afterward; the latter was created by Atsuko Nishida by basing it off of Venusaur.[2]

The bud on its back resembles a Rafflesia flower, and the leaves around the bud resemble palms.

Name origin

Ivysaur may be a combination of ivy (woody climbing or trailing plant genus) and dinosaur, and may also incorporate poison ivy (referring to its Grass/Poison-type designation).

Fushigisou may be a combination of 不思議 fushigi (strange; mysterious) and 草 (grass), as well as a pun of the phrase 不思議そう Fushigi sō ("It seems strange").
