Bulbasaur was a Pokémon Ash always wanted to catch, as explained in ''[[EP010|Bulbasaur and the Hidden Village]].'' When Misty tried to capture a wild {{p|Oddish}}, Bulbasaur rushed to Oddish's aid, easily defeating both {{TP|Misty|Starmie}} with {{m|Tackle}} and {{AP|Butterfree}} by blowing his own {{m|Sleep Powder}} back onto it. Later, it was revealed that Bulbasaur was raised in the [[Hidden Village]] by [[Melanie]], who cared for sick, injured, and abandoned Pokémon. It acted as the village's bodyguard, but after Ash helped defend the Hidden Village from an attack by [[Team Rocket]], Melanie encouraged it to join Ash, explaining that its growth was being stunted by staying too long in the village. Although Bulbasaur initially appeared to distrust Ash, it agreed to join him once Ash defeated it in battle. Bulbasaur put up an excellent fight against Pikachu, using its vines to seize and smash Pikachu into the ground repeatedly. However, a powerful {{m|Thunderbolt}} fried Bulbasaur and stunned it long enough for Ash to capture it.
