Ivysaur is a Grass/Poison-type Pokémon from the Pokémon series, appearing in Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as a playable character. In the Pokémon series, it is the evolutionary form of Bulbasaur and evolves into Venusaur. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Ivysaur is voiced by Craig Blair, who voiced it in the Generation I-V Pokémon anime, while in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, it is voiced by Justin Alsemi, its current voice actor from Pokémon X and Y onwards.
In the Super Smash Bros. series, Ivysaur appears as one of Pokémon Trainer's three Pokémon along with Squirtle and Charizard. Its standard 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 Poké Ball at it and it is caught. After that Ivysaur can be used during the campaign.
Bullet Seed is a Grass-type attack in the Pokémon series, and Ivysaur's standard special move. When used, Ivysaur launches a continuous stream of seeds into the air from the bulb on its back for a limited time or until the player releases the special attack button. Any nearby opponents when the move is first initiated are also hit by Ivysaur and launched into the path of the seeds.
Razor Leaf is a recurring Grass-type attack from the Pokémon series that appears as Ivysaur's side special move. Ivysaur throws the projectile with two vines, sending it across the stage to attack before it disappears. The leaf can curve in a random direction at the end of its path. It can also be thrown faster by holding the special attack button when executing the move, but the leaf curves at a wider arc as a result.
In addition to Ivysaur, other, non-playable Pokémon are able to use Razor Leaf in the Super Smash Bros. series. In Super Smash Bros. and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Razor Leaf is used by Venusaur when it appears out of the building on Saffron City. It is also used by the Poké Ball Pokémon Chikorita in Super Smash Bros. Melee and Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Snivy in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U.
Vine Whip is Ivysaur's up special move, based on the Grass-type move from the Pokémon series. Ivysaur attacks by sending a vine at an upward arc to attack opponents above it. The attack has a sweet spot at the end of the vine that deals more damage and knockback. This move also functions as a tether recovery. When used as such, Ivysaur hangs offstage for a short time before automatically grabbing the ledge, or when the player presses any button excluding down, which causes it to let go of the ledge.
Ivysaur also uses the vines for several of its other attacks, including its grabs, its neutral attack, its side and down smash attacks, its side aerial, and for throwing Razor Leaf.
Pokémon Change is the Pokémon Trainer's down special move shared across all three Pokémon. When used, Charizard takes Ivysaur's place.
