Bulbasaur is my favorite Pokemon, Venusaur is not as cool. It really bothers me whenever I see a more realistic take on the Bulbasaur line as a frogs. I dont care for frogs, and I really like Bulbasaur, so therefore he isn't a frog. Not to mention he has "saur" in his name, which means lizard. I really ran with the lizard idea and he ended up like a cross between a Horny Toad and a Scutosaurus. The way I figure it is that they have an endosymbiotic relationship with a very large type of flower. The flower reeks of death, the fumes can even be toxic and keeps large predators and competition away; however it attracts insects which brings food for the young Bulbasaurs. Venusaur is 6'7", though are actually taller as their flowers can vary in height and are not measured. They also use their tusks to dig up roots much like wild boar. Bulbasaur is the best.

Now, if Bulbasaur, Ivysaur and Venusaur actually looked like this in the game, I would certainly prefer picking them as a starter.

I'm actually starting my own Bulbasaur line, including the new mega evolution. I agree in the fact that the frog reality makes no sense, so I looked through dinosaurs, and instantly found a group that works well with them in my eye.

I like the idea of going more lizard than amphibian (frog gecko). My main issue with the whole the plant being a seperate organism with a symbiotic relationship with the Bulbasaur is the explination of the attacks? is the plant sentient and can use vines as a weapon. or does the bulbasaur have while like tendrils that look like vines that he/she uses... your thoughts?

My idea for Bulbasaur's line is a race of turtles that have a symbiotic relationship with a plant. Their shells grow with a hole in the middle and when they are born, their parents push dirt into the hole and a plant seed is dropped into it. It spreads its roots through bulbasaur's body, with the Bulbasaur carrying the plant around while the plant protects bulbasaur and provides it with energy when it is low

Actually, Bulbasaur's Japanese name is フシギダネ, which means "Weird Seed". So, I think there is no intention to make it look like a lizard in the first design concept...
GREAT work, Anyways.

I love, love, LOVE the fact that you used Rafflesia as a base for the plant, I always thought of the plant on it's back as some sort of corpse flower and even the original artwork for Venusaur supports the Rafflesia specie of plant :D
