In ''[[AG073|Grass Hysteria!]]'', May was kidnapped by a hungry {{p|Skarmory}} and ended up lost in a reserve for {{type|Grass}} {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} called the [[Forbidden Forest]]. There, she met Venusaur, then a clumsy Bulbasaur, while she was trying to pick flowers. Bulbasaur warmed up to May after being saved from a fall, but the other Pokémon in the reserve repeatedly tried to attack May. However, Bulbasaur explained to {{p|Venusaur}}, her parent and the ruler of the Forbidden Forest, that May was a friend. Before May had to leave, Bulbasaur decided to stay with her.
In ''[[AG074|Hokey Poké Balls!]]'', May sent out her Bulbasaur to enjoy the sights as they went through a city. Bulbasaur quickly got distracted by some flowers in a truck and had to be rescued as the truck sped off. Later, at the Pokémon Center, May showed Professor Oak her Bulbasaur, which made Ash decide to bring his own {{AP|Bulbasaur}} over for a visit. When the Poké Ball arrived, it wouldn't open, making everyone believe that the Pokémon Center's Balls were stolen. The culprits were revealed to be {{TRT}}, who accidentally dropped Ash's Bulbasaur while escaping. The two Bulbasaur teamed up to stop Team Rocket. Once they found Team Rocket, the two Bulbasaur battled against them, with Ash's Bulbasaur protecting and teaching May's how to fight. After rescuing the Pokémon, Professor Oak called back and asked for Ash's Bulbasaur to return so it could stop the {{t|Water}} and {{t|Grass}} Pokémon from fighting. Ash sent his Bulbasaur back to Professor Oak's Laboratory as May's Bulbasaur appeared to have made a positive change from the experience.
Bulbasaur made her Contest debut in the Battle Round of the [[Rank (Contest)|R1]] [[Rubello Town]] [[Pokémon Contest]] in ''[[AG078|Cruisin' for a Losin']]''. She was initially excited to participate, but became nervous when she got on stage, resulting in a loss.
In ''[[AG103|A Cacturne for the Worse]]'', Bulbasaur was used in the {{ci|Purika}} Contest. In the [[Appeal|Appeals Round]], she started her performance by using {{m|Razor Leaf}}. As the leaves were flying through the air, she whipped them with the vines from her {{m|Vine Whip}} [[move|attack]], impressing [[Contest Judge|the judges]] and advancing May to the [[Contest Battle]]s. There, she was seen defeating [[Kent]]'s {{p|Surskit }} to reach the final round, where she battled against [[Harley]]'s {{TP|Harley|Cacturne}}]]. Their battle was a hard fought one, but in the end, Bulbasaur was able to defeat the Scarecrow Pokémon with a [[Contest combination|combination]] of Razor Leaf and {{m|Petal Dance}}, giving May her fourth [[Hoenn]] [[Ribbon]].
Bulbasaur also competed in the Battle Round of the [[Hoenn Grand Festival]]. In ''[[AG123|Rhapsody in Drew]]'', she was called out to battle along with {{TP|May|Beautifly}} against Harley's Cacturne and {{p|Banette}}. Together they managed to defeat their opponents and advance May to the next round.
