Ivysaur (Fushigisou in Romaji Japanese) is a Stage 1 grass-type Pokémon that evolves from Bulbasaur at level 16 and further evolves into Venusaur at level 32. On Ivysaur, the bud that Bulbasaur carries has grown into a full ivy blossom; it will grow larger in sunlight, and will also produce a pleasant smell when it is ready to bloom. As the blossom grows, Ivysaur loses the ability to stand on its hindlegs.

Name origin

"Ivysaur" is a shortening of "Ivy Dinosaur." The translation of his Japanese name, Fushigisou, shall be posted soon.


In Pokémon Red/Blue, Yellow and Pokémon Gold/Silver/Crystal, Ivysaur can be obtained by evolving Bulbasaur. In Pokémon Sapphire/Ruby, Ivysaur is not available at all.

Strengths / weaknesses

Ivysaur is vulnerable to Ice, Bug, Fire, Psychic and Flying, and strong against Water, Electric, Grass, and Fighting.

Anime Appearances

In The Secret Garden, Ash stumbled upon an evolutionary ground for Bulbasaur that was protected by a Venusaur. Ash witnessed hundreds of Bulbasaur evolve into Ivysaur.
