Well-raised individuals eventually begin producing modified chloroplasts, which can rapidly convert energy stored in adenosine triphosphate (ATP) ''back'' into light in a directed manner; while these structures are normally used for Flash moves to stun potential predators, experienced Saurs can develop the technique into the famous "[=SolarBeam=]" move.

In rare cases, the plant half may die due to disease or severe injury; in such a situation, the Pokémon will have to be transitioned to a more substantial diet. Due to the limited digestive systems of the Bulbasaur line, such a diet must be carefully planned; generally speaking, sugars and starches will make up the bulk of the diet, but consult a Pokécenter for more details.

And, when one has finally become infuriated, they are quite willing to bring their dehabilitating powders to bear, as well as bludgeonings from their body and vines. Stronger individuals can launch [[PetalPower Razor Leaf attacks]], fire streams of {{Bullet Seed}}s (particularly effective against aerial attackers), and the occasional Solar Beam, too.

A 12-inch plant bulb structure is fused to the Pokémon's back, and develops quickly after hatching. However, all of their skin, not just their plant half, contains chloroplasts; the presence of chlorophyll and, oddly, phycoerythrocyanin, gives their skin a blue-green hue. Darker "freckles" containing higher pigment density are commonly scattered around the skin. A minority of individuals lack the phycoerythrocyanin gene, giving them a greener coloration. Bulbasaur can often be found lying in the sun so that both it and the bulb can photosynthesize. Occasionally can be seen walking on its hind legs.

'''Ivysaur''' largely resemble Bulbasaur in body structure, though, at around 3 feet long, are nearly twice the size. The main distinction of note between the two morphs is the development of the Bulbasaur's bulb into a large, colorful bud surrounded radially by leaves, though their fangs have become proportionately longer as well. Can no longer walk on its hind legs due to the weight of the bud on its back.

Mature '''Venusaur''' grow past 6 feet in length, and have an even wider stance (and stockier bone structure) to better support their plant half, which has bloomed into a large flower with a distinctive fragrance. Interestingly enough, the flowers vary in symmetry- most members exhibit sixfold symmetry, but a sizable minority (including most domestic lines in Johto and Hoenn) display fivefold symmetry instead.

Their plant half produces the varied afflictive spores typical among Grass-types. In addition, a pair of prehensile vines grow from the plant-animal junction. These vines have surprisingly efficient coiling; it is not uncommon for a Bulbasaur to have a ten-foot striking distance, and the evolved forms have correspondingly longer ranges.

When outside, Venusaur will often attract Beedrill. Fortunately, trainers will be encountering such Beedrill in a foraging context rather than an intrusion context; remain calm and avoid sudden movements, and the Beedrill will move on after collecting nectar and pollen. Also, regardless of form, Heracross may be attracted by the scent made by the bulb and the nectar it contains.

The Bulbasaur line have been a traditional housepet in the Kanto region for millenia, for two simple reasons. They are easy to care for, requiring significantly less fod than most Pokémon of their size, so long as adequate water and sunlight are provided. Also, they make effective guards for homes and gardens, being easily able to incapacitate intruders.

The plant on the back of a Bulbasaur would appear at first glance to be a symbiotic partner (The bulb grants Bulbasaur many of its Grass-type moves and abilities and the bulb draws nutrients from the Pokémon's back); however, initial DNA testing revealed that the bulb is in fact genetically identical to its host. Further genetic study has begun, and it was quickly found that the Bulbasaur genome can be divided into typically reptilian and typically angiosperm halves- one of the most extreme known examples of embryonic cellular differentiation.

The division is not total, of course; Bulbasaur leaves contain low concentrations of nerves wired into their central nervous system, and their skin hosts active chloroplasts.

Both the Ivysaur and Venusaur stages are fertile, although it is not unheard of for Bulbasaur to concieve offspring. Mates attract each other by releasing pheromones via their buds/flowers. During mating, the male's plant releases pollen spores, which are collected by the female. Genetic surveys have not yet determined whether the pollen provides any genetic contribution to the offspring.

They are easy to care for, requiring significantly less fod than most Pokémon of their size, so long as adequate water and sunlight are provided. Also, they make effective guards for homes and gardens, being easily able to incapacitate intruders.

Thus, they are a popular starter Pokémon for Kanto trainers, able to dissuade most threats while possessing generally amicable natures.

They have found a practical role in theater as well. Their powders are involved in many traditional stage effects, and their vines are used for hoisting props and sets to achieve other effects.

While stress is never healthy for any creature, it can be striking how a Bulba/Ivy/Venusaur's plant component responds to psyche trauma--the stress hormones cause the plant to enter a hibernation state, withering as it does so. The resulting crash in photosynthesis has a further adverse effect on the animal half's condition. While individuals suffering depressive spirals may tend to sulk and hide, it is important to ensure they remain exposed to the therapeutic effect of direct sunlight.
