Overview

Venusaur on the title screen of Leaf Green

Venusaur is the final evolution stage of the starter Pokémon Bulbasaur. It is the mascot of both Pokémon Green and LeafGreen version, appearing on the cover-art of each. Venusaur first appears in the games as the final evolution of Bulbasaur in Pokémon Red & Blue.

It first appears in the Pokémon Anime Cartoon series in episode 51, ("Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden") as leading an evolution ceremony.

Much like its first two evolutions, Venusaur has an advantage over Water, Electric, and Fighting-types, only taking half of the usual damage from these types of moves. It has an even greater advantage over Grass types, only taking 25% damage from attacks of these type. However, Venusaur takes double the damage from Fire, Flying, and Psychic-type moves.

Venusaur is much larger than its previous two forms, with a huge flower mounted on its back. Venusaur retains the Grass & Poison-type characteristics from its previous forms, meaning it can use Vine Whip, Razor Leaf and Leech Seed, as well as the powerful Solar Beam attack once it has absorbed enough sunlight.

When the bulb has bloomed into a full-sized flower like the one on Venusaur's back, the flower will absorb energy from the sun. Because of this, Venusaur has to keep moving to find more sunlight. The Leech Seed technique shared by both Ivysaur and Venusaur takes away an enemy's energy during battle.

Females can be differentiated from males for the "seed" protruding from its flower, males don't have this; it provably represents a fertile Venusaur. Venusaur is large and squat, colored green, with a big pink flower emerging from its back. It resembles a large toad, and walks around on four legs.

Venusaur makes an appearance in the original Super Smash Bros where he emerges from a door on the Saffron City stage and uses his Razor Leaf attack, shooting leaves across the stage that damage any players they hit.

Venusaur also appears in Super Smash Bro's Melee where he can potentially appear from a Pokeball that has been thrown by a player, and use the Earthquake attack to damage nearby opponents by pounding on the floor.

Evolution

The final of three evolutions, Venusaur evolved from Ivysaur, who evolved from Bulbasaur, one of the starter Pokémon of Pokémon Red/Blue. The plant-like growth on Venusaur's back is much larger than that of Ivysaur, making Venusaur a much more formidable opponent. Venusaur evolved from Ivysaur at level 32, and Ivysaur evolved from Bulbasaur at level 16.
