Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl: Where to find Bulbasaur

Quick link

After the game, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl allows the trainer to catch Pokemon starting from the Kanto, Johto, and Hoenn regions. Trainers looking for the Grass type might want to consider capturing Bulbasaur.

Since Bulbasaur is not in the original Sinnoh Dex given at the beginning Brilliant diamond and Shining pearls, players need to complete a request in the game before they can find one. After completing this, they will begin to see Bulbasaur in certain hiding places.

Get Bulbasaur

The only way to download Bulbasaur in the original Diamond / Pearl / Platinum is to convert it from FireRed / LeafGreen and then catch it at Pal Park. As the Nintendo Switch lacks the GBA Slot and no more games are made for the handheld, players can no longer deposit their starting Bulbasaur from FireRed or Green leaf.

Thankfully, with the Grand Underground, players can catch their own Bulbasaur on the Shining Diamonds / Shining Pearls save file. Since Bulbasaur will be captured directly by the player, it will have the same Trainer ID, which means it could be Nicknamed Pokemon.

Bulbasaur can be found in the following hideouts of the Grand Underground:

  • Bogsunk Cavern

  • Swamp Cave

  • Static water cave

  • Meadow Cave

  • Sunlit Cavern

  • Riverbank cave

These biomes may have been unlocked or “available” before the player had to join the Elite Four. However, Bulbasaur won’t start appearing until after the player receives the National Dex. Players will be able to get the National Dex after they’ve seen every Pokemon in Sinnoh, and then talk to Professor Rowan in Sandgem Town.

If Bulbasaur wasn’t there when it entered one of its habitats, exit and then re-enter. For more Bulbasaur, the player can continue searching for hiding places or can breed their Bulbasaur at Pokemon Daycare.

Bulbasaur’s stats and evolution

Bulbasaur will evolve into Ivysaur at level 16, then will evolves into Venusaur at level 32. Venusaur has a total base stats of 525, with average stats but with solid Special Attack and Special Defense abilities. As a Grass/Poison, the entire Bulbasaur lineage is resistant to Grass, Electric, Fairy, Battle, and Water types. It has a weakness for Fire, Flying, Ice and Psychic types.

By learning the Bulbasaur-line’s stats, strengths and weaknesses, players can give it a strong offensive path and good coverage. However, Bulbasaur won’t learn too many Poison-style moves that deal damage. Therefore, it is best that it should learn moves like Mud Bomb from TMs. Giving Bulbasaur a Poison-type attack will allow it to deal Super Effective damage to Grass and Fairy-type Pokemon.
