Bulbasaur by MetalReaper Bulbasaur by MetalReaper
the Bulbasaur is a reptilian creature resembling a toad or dinosaur. it gets its name by being the first pokemon seen with a large bulb on its back, and untill recent events was thought to be apart of the creature. the bulb is achually a symbiotic flower that is called Venus Rafflesia. the Venus Rafflesia is a some what parasitic plant that latched itself onto a passer-by animal and some how conjoines with the animal and gets nutriunts from its host's blood, and in return it provides protection and food. the ways it protects are it lashes out at predators with vines, on the vines are very fine hairs that allow the plant to know when somethins near. and the way it provides food is the smell that it emits attracks prey to the bulbasaur.
but the Venus Rafflesia is attaching itself to other pokemon to but the bulbasaur seems to do the best, because they have the strength to carry it, other pokemon died do to over welming themselves or being slowed down and hunted.

It's not a parasite.... though this is just pokemon... parasites by definition take from their host without giving back. Mutual symbiosis is when both counterparts benefit from the relationship, therefore being a mutual relationship. (sorry for the nerd rant) love the artwork

WHAT'S WITH YOU PEOPLE?!?! HE DIDN'T CREATE THIS! THIS IS THE BETA ART FOR THE "REAL-LIFE" POKEMON MOVIE WARNER BROS. IS MAKING IN A FEW YEARS! Besides, it looks almost NOTHING like bulbasaur anyways! Pokemon are cute and furry, while that THING looks like a creature from the darkest pits of the underworld!

it does look like bulbasaur, if he was realisticly detailed and more animal then cute japanese "monster" most pokemon if detailed would look pretty scary compared to their dumbed-down originals, no i clearly state that bulbasaurs are found in jungle areas, the underworld is in no way a sutable habatate for a creature like this
