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.

I always thought bulbasaur and its evolutions were some kind of turtle. But, this take with them as lizards looks really cool!

Bulbasaur for the win. I even have a plush toy from BABW.
Seriously, it's funny seeing Bulbasaur eating that Nincada's leg.

What do you have against frogs?
Also Bulbasaur resembles a decadent more than a lizard

Look familiar?  Your take reminds me of an anemone hermit crab.  They carry around sea anemones on their shell and when they switch shells they even pull the anemones off and put them on the new shell.

Bulbasaur is the best! He is such a little badass.. nobody fucks with him.
I'm glad the best Pokémon artist out there considers the Pokédex #1 Pokémon as his heart #1 Pokémon, as it should be!

I was hoping that you'd already done the bulba line.  This is fantastic!  Bulbasaur is also my favorite line (apart from maybe Growlithe/Arcanine), but I've always hated Venusaur.  Thanks for making him cool!

I imagine that the relationship between the plant and animal would be beneficial, with the bulbasaur seeking sunny places and providing safety in exchange for injections of sugar to temporarily boost energy.
