Ivysaur appears to be based primarily on some form of {{wp|frogsreptile}}, specifically mammal-like reptiles known as ''{{wp|Dicynodonts}}'' from the {{wp|Permian}} period. Along with aspectsvisible ofears and no genuine metamorphosis stage (evolution aside), Ivysaur appears to have more in common with {{wp|dinosaursmammals}} than {{wp|amphibians}} like {{wp|frogs}} and {{wp|toads}}, which metamorphose from one definite creature into another as they mature as opposed to just growing into a larger adult version of itself the way that Bulbasaur does.
The bulb on its back now resembles the bud of a species of parasitic flowering plants known as {{wp|Rafflesia}}.
