Ivysaur is a Grass/Poison-type Pokémon from the Pokémon series whose only Mario-related appearance is in Super Smash Bros. Brawl as a playable character (one of Pokémon Trainer's Pokémon) and a Trophy. In the Pokémon series, it is the evolutionary form of Bulbasaur and evolves into Venusaur.
In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Ivysaur appears as one of Pokémon Trainer's Pokémon along with Squirtle and Charizard. Its neutral special move is Bullet Seed, which involves it shooting seeds directly upward, its up special is Vine Whip, which has it attack with a vine that strikes upward, and its side special is Razor Leaf, which involves it throwing it a grass projectile forward. Its down special is Pokémon Change, in which the Pokémon Trainer returns Ivysaur and sends out Charizard, or sends it out if Squirtle is the active Pokémon. For the group's collective Final Smash, Triple Finish, Ivysaur attacks with SolarBeam.
Ivysaur has a certain amount of stamina, which decreases as he remains on the battlefield and weakens its attacking power. Ivysaur also has an extended grab in the form of two vines, but unlike other characters it does not function as a Tether Recovery; this is instead given to Vine Whip. In addition, Ivysaur, like in the Pokémon games, takes less damage from water attacks but takes more from fire attacks.
Ivysaur is found during the Subspace Emissary part of the game as a Trophy sitting inside a cave before Pokémon Trainer battles Charizard. Pokémon Trainer throws a Pokéball at it and it is caught. After that Ivysaur can be used during the campaign.
