"This Grass-type Pokèmon is a sun-loving, fun-loving friend! It wants nothing more than to soak up some rays while it naps. Sunbathing is super-relaxing - plus, it makes the seed on Bulbasaur's back grow." - (Freak, Game, 2015. Pokèmon - The Official Adventure Guide. 1st ed. China: Scholastic.)

  •  In the Japanese Pokèmon Red, Green and Blue, international Pokèmon Red and Blue and Japanese Pokèmon FireRed and LeafGreen, Professor Oak classifies Bulbasaur as the "Plant Pokèmon", when the player is about to choose their starter, using the term while referring to its type. In the English versions of Pokèmon FireRed and LeafGreen he calls it the "Grass Pokèmon". (This also occurs in the first episode of Pokèmon Origins)
  • Niue released a one-dollar coin featuring Bulbasaur as part of a commemorative promotion for the Pokèmon franchise, with Bulbasaur on one side and the nations coat of arms on the other.
  • Bulbasaur's evolution family is the only starter Pokèmon evolution family to have each member appear at least once in the Super Smash Bros. series.
  • Bulbasaur is the only unevolved duel-type starter.
  • Bulbasaur and it's evolutions share their category with Sunkern. They are all known as the "Seed Pokèmon".
  • Bulbasaur's number in the national Pokèdex and the Fiore browser are the same: 001
  • Due to the censor that prevents Pokèmon with offensive nicknames being traded on the GTS, a Bulbasaur with an English name cannot be traded on the GTS without a nickname in Pokèmon Black & White.
  • In Pokèmon Gold & Silver, Bulbasaur is programmed to be able to learn charm through breeding, but no other Pokèmon in the Grass or Monster groups can legitimately learn to pass it down as an egg move in those games. In Generation III and IV, Bulbasaur can inherit the move from Shroomish by chain breeding. In Generation V on, Bulbasaur can inherit the move directly from Cottonee.

Spr 3e 004.png CHARMANDERSpr 3e 004.png

"You can tell a lot about this Fire-type Pokèmon by the torch tip of its tail. When it's happy, the flame dances. When it's ready to battle, the flame burns big and bright." - (Freak, Game, 2015. Pokèmon - The Official Adventure Guide. 1st ed. China: Scholastic.)

  • Niue released a one dollar coin featuring Charmander as part of a commemorative promotion for the Pokèmon franchise, with Charmander on one side and the nations coat of arms on the other.
  • In the first generation, on it's sprite and first artwork, Charmander's "back" is depicted as having a small line of spikes. The spikes were not shown in the sprites and artworks of later generations. Blue's Charmander also had these spikes in the Pokèmon Adventures manga, where the spikes were larger and easier to see. The spikes were also seen on Green's Charmander from the Pokèmon Pocket Monsters manga.
