Venusaur is a dual-type Grass/Poison Pokemon introduced in Generation I. It evolves from Ivysaur starting at level 32. It is the final form of Bulbasaur. It can Mega Evolve into Mega Venusaur using the Venusaurite. Venusaur is the game mascot of both Green and LeafGreen, appearing on the box-art of both.
1. Venusaur is a squat, quadruped Pokemon with bumpy, blue-green skin.
2. It has small, circular red eyes, a short, blunt snout, and a wide mouth with two pointed teeth in the upper jaw and four in the lower jaw.
3. On top of its head are small, pointed ears with reddish pink insides.
4. It has three clawed toes on each foot. The bud on its back has bloomed in a large pink, white-spotted flower.
5. The flower is supported by a thick, brown trunk surrounded by green fronds.
6. A female Venusaur will have a seed in the center of its flower.
7. As Mega Venusaur, the flower on its back grows larger and two smaller pink flowers bloom, one on its forehead and one on its rear.
8. The weight of the flower causes its legs and back to become sturdier in order to support it.
9. Additional leaves with woody stems, which are supported by vines, are grown around the flower. Mega Venusaur also develops dark markings on its forehead below the new flower.
10. Venusaur uses its flower to catch the sun’s rays to convert them into energy, which causes the flower to become more vibrant.
11. The flower releases a soothing scent that attracts Pokémon and calms emotions. This scent becomes stronger after a rainy day.
12. In the anime, Venusaur has demonstrated the ability to manipulate nature, release several vines from its back, and lead evolution ceremonies for Bulbasaur and Ivysaur.
13. This Pokémon is rarely found in the wild, but has been known to inhabit grasslands.
14. Frenzy Plant was its signature move in the past.
15. Venusaur is exactly the same size as another Grass-type Pokemon, Tropius. Both have a height of 6’7″ (2.0 m) and a weight of 220.5 lbs. (100.0 kg).
16. Venusaur’s number in the National Pokédex and the Fiore Browser are the same: 003.
17. Venusaur shares its category with Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, and Sunkern. They are all known as the Seed Pokémon.
18. Mega Venusaur has the highest base stat total of all Poison-type Pokémon.
19. If the player chooses Charmander as their starter in Pokémon Red, Blue, FireRed, or LeafGreen, it is impossible to get Venusaur registered in the Pokédex without trading, as no NPC in the said games uses a Venusaur under this condition.
20. Venusaur was confirmed to be based on frogs by Ken Sugimori, in a Japanese interview that was discussing the Pokémon franchise in general.
21. When asked to describe the basis of the design behind the Bulbasaur evolutionary line, Sugimori had stated that it was “a creature that is something like a frog.”
22. Venusaur’s large, rounded snout; wide mouth; wide-set eyes; bumpy, wart-like skin; and quadruped-like movements are vaguely similar to those of certain amphibians, such as the common toad or the Colorado River toad, both of which are toads that exude toxins from their parotoid glands.
23. Unlike Bulbasaur, Venusaur’s “ears” have hollows, indicating that they are in fact ears and not glands, as seen in many species of frogs and toads.
24. The flower on its back resembles the Rafflesia arnoldii.
25. Venusaur is a combination of the words Venus (referring to the Venus flytrap plant) or venom and the Greek saur (lizard).
26. Spenser’s Venusaur debuted in Cutting the Ties that Bind. Spenser had Venusaur use Sweet Scent to drive away the furious Beedrill. Venusaur was the second Pokémon that the Palace Maven used in his battle with Ash at the Battle Palace in Ka Boom with a View!.
27. In Pruning a Passel of Pals!, May’s Bulbasaur was revealed to have evolved all the way into a Venusaur during her absence from the anime. She was briefly seen facing off against a Coordinator’s Marill in the Battle Stage of the Wallace Cup.
28. A Venusaur appeared in Bulbasaur’s Mysterious Garden, where it was the leader of an evolution ceremony for Bulbasaur. It appeared again in Alola, Kanto!, during a flashback.

30. A Venusaur appeared in The Light Fantastic as the longtime friend of Gan Gogh. He used it to battle Team Rocket.
