Venusaurus (フシギバナ, Fushigibana), or simply Venusaur, is a Grass/Poison-type Pokémon. It is the mascot for Pokémon Green and Pokémon LeafGreen and the final form of Bulbasaur.

Biology

Physiology

Venusaur is a large, amphibian-like Pokémon that is somewhat similar in appearance to its pre-evolved forms, Ivysaur and Bulbasaur. Its skin still retains a light turquoise color, but it no longer has the spots, and it appears more rough and scaly, with bumps here and there. The former bulb on its back has now fully bloomed into a gigantic flower and its ears have lightened up as well. Female Venusaur are slightly different because they have a seed on their back, which shows that it can give birth to a new Bulbasaur.

Gender differences

Female Venusaur have bulbs sticking out of the tops of their flowers.

Characteristics

Venusaur absorbs sunlight to gain energy and to feed its flower, located on its back. After gaining a certain amount of sunlight, the flower will release a sweet aroma said to soothe the emotions of people. Additionally, after a rainy day, the smell of the flower's aroma grows stronger, attracting other Pokémon.

The power of Gigantamaxing has made Venusaur's flower bloom so large that it covers the Pokémon's body. The flower's petals are extremely thick and springy enough to repel halfhearted attacks. During battle, the Pokémon uses these petals as a shield and swings its two thick vines around to attack its target.

The flower on the Pokémon's back spews so much pollen that it resembles a volcanic eruption. Inhaling the pollen can cause uncontrollable sneezing, and breathing in too much of it can even cause fainting. However, the pollen also stimulates plant growth. Places where the pollen falls are said to grow thick with large plants.

Behavior

Venusaur are powerful but relatively nonviolent Pokémon. Despite their menacing appearances, Venusaur are docile Pokémon, preferring to sunbathe so that the plants on their backs can photosynthesize rather than fight. They follow sunny patches that reach the forest floor as the sun moves across the sky. With enough solar energy, the flowers on their backs can release a fragrance that calms both hostile Pokémon and people alike. The scent also attracts a number of Bug-type Pokémon to the flowers as well to aid in their pollination during the breeding season. This ability allows Venusaur to serve as peacekeepers of sorts in their native forests, not only stopping fights that break out in their territories, but also defending their domains from dangers with their might if necessary. Female Venusaur have seeds in their flowers, which they plant into the backs of their offspring to grow into new plants. Their gentle dispositions but great power are what make them one of the most well-rounded Pokémon any Kantonian trainer could start their Pokémon journeys with.

Evolution

Venusaur evolves from Ivysaur at level 32. It can mega evolve into Mega Venusaur using the Venusaurite.

In Super Smash Bros. Melee, Venusaur is one of the Pokémon that can be freed from the Poké Ball item. When freed, it uses the move Earthquake, a Ground-type move. It covers a lot of ground and launches opponents with great vertical knockback.

Trivia

  • Venusaur, Meganium, and Torterra are similar in form and shape. However, they have different appearances and Venusaur has a giant flower, while Meganium has giant petals, and Torterra has a giant tree.
  • The flower on Venusaur's back might be a rafflesia flower.
  • Venusaur is the first fully evolved Pokémon in National Pokédex order.
  • Mega Venusaur has the highest base stat total of all Poison-type Pokémon (625).
  • Venusaur is the only fully-evolved Kanto starter that isn't playable in Pokkén Tournament.

Origin

  • Venusaur was confirmed to be based on frogs by Ken Sugimori, in a Japanese interview that was discussing the Pokémon franchise in general. When asked to describe the basis of the design behind the Bulbasaur line, Sugimori had stated that it was "a creature that is something like a frog." In another interview, Sugimori described the origin and the basic themes of the original starter Pokémon: "[T]he experience of keeping small animals such as frogs (Bulbasaur), lizards (Charmander), and baby turtles (Squirtle) as pets gives the game a sense of reality and makes it easier to get into the game. I realized it might be difficult to make an emotional connection if the first partner Pokémon is a tough-looking character."
  • Venusaur's large, rounded snout, wide mouth, wide-set eyes, bumpy, wart-like skin, & quadruped-like movements are vaguely similar to those of certain amphibians, such as the common toad. Unlike Bulbasaur, and like Ivysaur, Venusaur'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 flower on its back resembles the Rafflesia arnoldii.
  • Its Gigantamax form may be a mutation of its existing features, as well as a volcano (since its pollen is spread like an eruption).

Etymology

Venusaur is a combination of 'Venus fly trap' and 'Dinosaur'.

Names in other languages

  • Japanese: フシギバナ (Fushigibana in Romaji), from the Japanese words Fushigi (不思議) which means strange and Hana (花) which means flower.
  • Korean: 이상해꽃 (Isanghekkot), from "isanghada" (strange) and "kkot" (flower).
  • French: "Florizarre", a combination of the words "fleur" (flower) and "bizarre" (bizarre).
  • German: "Bisaflor", a combination of "bi" (two), "saurier" (dinosaur) and "flor" (flower).
