bulbasaur coloring page – Bulbasaur is a species of Pokémon from the first generation. First introduced in 1996, in the Pokémon video game series, as one of the three Pokémon starters Professor Oak offers us as players (two more being Charmander and Squirtle).
The Bulbasaur character was designed and built by Satoshi Tajiri’s friend, Ken Sugimori.
Bulbasaur comes from two words, bulb (which means a type of onion), and saur (from the word dinosaur). This Pokémon belongs to the grass (plant) type, and is strong against water attacks, but weak against flying and fire attacks.
Bulbasaur’s body color was light green and he walked on four legs. Bulbasaur evolved from Ivysaur, and later became Venusaur. Since birth, Bulbasaur has had a kind of plant on his back, which when evolved, the plant will grow into a corpse flower.
Bulbasaur likes sunshine, he prefers sunbathing and enjoying the morning heat when the sun starts to rise and slowly rises. The energy emitted from the sun is then taken by Bulbasaur to be used as energy reserves, and he can last several days without eating just by relying on the energy he gets.
As the main weapon, Bulbasaur has the ability to pull out a rope called a Vine Whip and can issue a Blade Leaf or Razor Leaf projectile. It can also poison other Pokémon through a special powder similar to fertilizer called Poison Powder. Bulbasaur can also extract energy from other Pokémon with the help of sunlight.
Bulbasaur is a well-known Pokémon species character, because he appears as a Pokémon owned by Ash and May.
Ash got Bulbasaur when he got it from a girl named Melanie, where Melanie did not educate and nurture Bulbasaur as she should, so Bulbasaur became fierce and violent.
When Melanie was about to give it to Ash, Bulbasaur instead invited Ash to fight, as his opponent Pikachu and Pidgeot were issued, when Pidgeot failed, an electric shock from Pikachu finally stopped Bulbasaur’s resistance and finally he could be put into Poke Balls. After that, Bulbasaur became one of Ash’s Pokémon who was the most powerful apart from Pikachu.
Another Ash, another May. May found Bulbasaur when she toured a park in Hoenn, where she was attacked by several wild Pokémon, and Ash was not there. Surprisingly, Bulbasaur arrived, then the wild Bulbasaur defeated all wild Pokémon in the place. May was impressed, and finally invited Bulbasaur to go on an adventure with him. The Bulbasaur agreed, and finally May educated him until he turned into Ivysaur and Venusaur. In the anime, Bulbasaur May is not shown evolving into Ivysaur. However, during a Pokémon contest in the Wallace Cup, May used Venusaur against Maril in the preliminary round.
There are differences between the Bulbasaur that Ash and May have. Ash’s Bulbasaur is male, while May’s Bulbasaur is female. The two Bulbasaurs were deposited in Professor Oak’s lab. The voice actor for Bulbasaur (either Ash, May or the wild one) in the English version is Tara Jayne, and was later taken over by Michele Knotz from season 9 onwards. Meanwhile for the Japanese version, Ash’s Bulbasaur was voiced by Megumi Hayashibara and for May’s Bulbasaur voiced by Miyako Ito.
