Ivysaur (フシギソウ, Fushigisou) is a Grass/Poison Pokémon introduced in Generation I. It evolves from Bulbasaur starting at level 16 and evolves into Venusaur starting at level 32.

Biology

Physiology

Ivysaur's appearance is very similar to that of its pre-evolved form, Bulbasaur. It still retains the turquoise skin and spots, along with its red eyes. Ivysaur's top fangs are now larger and are visible outside of its mouth. Also, its ears are now darkened to black in the center. Carrying the weight of the bud on its back makes Ivysaur's legs stronger. The most notable change is that the bulb is starting to bloom, with pink petals visible, and large leaves on the bloom bottom.

Behavior

Ivysaur are able to naturally learn the powerful Grass-type attack Solar Beam, a move whose execution time depends largely upon the weather; it takes an excruciatingly long amount of time to perform this attack in hail, rain, or a sandstorm, but nearly no time at all in bright sunlight. Luckily, the latter is ​most common in the habitats of these Pokémon, as it is vital that the bulbs on their backs receive ample sunlight so that they can photosynthesize and develop. As the bulbs grow larger and these Ivysaur become more powerful, they must spend increasing amounts of time in the sun in order to foster their growth. When Ivysaur are preparing to evolve into Venusaur, they will spend more time sunbathing and their bulbs will begin emanating a sweet, pleasant aroma.

Characteristics

Its blossom on its back grows larger in the sunlight. As the blossom grows, Ivysaur loses the ability to stand on its hind legs. The blossom produces a pleasant smell when it is ready to bloom, it means Ivysaur is ready to evolve into Venusaur.

In other games

Ivysaur is a playable character in both Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, as one of the three Pokémon usable by the Pokémon Trainer, with the others being Charizard and Squirtle. Ivysaur is surprisingly agile in the game, being able to jump to a great height and attack with great speed. Its moves, based upon Grass-type moves in the Pokémon games, are Solar Beam, Vine Whip, Razor Leaf, and Bullet Seed.

Petting Spots

  • Favored Spot: Its ears.
  • Disfavored Spot: The top of its bulb.

Trivia

  • It is a member of the only Starter Pokémon family to have the same type as its whole evolutionary line, the others being its evolutionary family.
  • Interestingly, all of the Pokémon the Pokémon Trainer uses in Super Smash Bros. Brawl have been used by Ash, including Ivysaur if you count his pre-evolution.
  • Ivysaur was the only Grass-type starter's first evolution that has a second type until Dartrix was introduced in Generation 7.
  • Ivysaur is also the only Pokémon with a name that starts with an "i" in Generation I.
  • Ivysaur is the lightest Grass-type mid-evolution starter Pokémon.

Origin

Ivysaur was confirmed to be based on frogs by Ken Sugimori in a Japanese interview, where he described the Bulbasaur line to be "a creature that is something like a frog."[1][2]

Additionally, Ivysaur's large, rounded snout; wide mouth, wide-set eyes, blotch-patterned skin, and quadruped-like movements are vaguely similar to those of certain amphibians, such as the common toad. Unlike Bulbasaur, Ivysaur's "ears" do have hollows, indicating that they are, in fact, ears and not glands, as seen in many species of frogs and toads.

The bulb on its back now resembles the bud of a genus of parasitic flowering plants known as Rafflesia.

Etymology

"Ivysaur" is derived from "ivy" and "dinosaur".

Names in other languages

  • Japanese: フシギソウ (Fushigisou in Romaji) from the Japanese words "Fushigi" (不思議(ふしぎ)) which means strange and "Sou” ((そう)) which means herb.
  • Korean: 이상해풀 (Issanghaepul) from the Korean words "Issanghada" (이상하다) which means strange and "pul" (풀) which means herb.
  • French: "Herbizarre", combination of the French words "herbe" (herb) and "bizarre".
  • German: "Bisaknosp", combination of "bi" (two), "saurier" (dinosaur) and "knospe" (bulb).
