Pokemon Shuffle

001Bulbasaur PSMD
Bulbasaur can be caught early in Pokemon Shuffle in the second stage of the game in the Puerto Blanco area, after Espurr. It is Grass type instead of Poison and lost it's strength against Fairy, immunity to Steel type and resistance to Ghost types. Instead Bulbasaur is strong against Water, Ground, and Rock type Pokemon.


  • Bulbasaur is the only dual type Starter Pokemon until Rowlet was introduced.
  • Additionally, Bulbasaur's family in Pokemon Shuffle were chosen to all be Grass types instead of their secondary type, Poison. If Bulbasaur's family were all Poison types, it would have been strong against the Fairy type.
  • Bulbasaur's family are all immune to Steel due to it's Poison typing.
