Ivysaur's Origins: Ivysaur debuted in Pokemon Red and Blue, released in North America in 1998. Due to the favorable type matchups, Ivysaur was very useful against Rock-type and Water-type opponents in the beginning Gyms.
In Its Series: Ivysaur is the evolved form of Bulbasaur, one of the three Pokemon you can choose in the beginning. Compared to the other two Pokemon, you can reach the third form, Venusaur, quickest.
Bullet Seed (Neutral Special): Ivysaur's Bullet Seed move not only shoots seeds, but if an opponent touches its body while it's using the move, that opponent can get launched!
Bullet Seed Firing Time (Neutral Special): Holding the special-move button will make Bullet Seed last longer. You'll be open to attack from the side, but if it hits, it deals a lot of damage.
Razor Leaf (Side Special): Quickly flick the control stick to the side as you press the button to shoot leaves farther. The trajectory of the leaves is random. They may fly diagonally instead of straight to the side.
Vine Whip (Up Special): Vine Whip can be used as many times as you want in midair and the direction it shoots out can be changed slightly. It can be used to grab the edge when falling off the stage.
Triple Finish (Final Smash): The three Pokemon combine their powers for this Final Smash. Ivysaur's Solar Beam has a long range and traps opponents hit by the attack.
Exploding Flower (Up Smash): It has a very high launch power, but the move is slow to activate. Use this move a bit early and try to predict where the opponent will land or where they will go after dodging.
Pollen from Bloom: Ivysaur's up smash, up air, and down air attacks all release pollen from the bud on its back. These moves excel at launching opponents.
