Bellsprout (Japanese: マダツボミ Madatsubomi), is a dual-type Grass/Poison Pokemon.
Bellsprout is a plant-based Pokémon with a stem-like brown body. This stem is long, thin and very flexible, making it capable of swerving rapidly to avoid many attacks or moving with blinding speed to capture prey. Its roots resemble feet, and it uses them as such. It will plant these feet in the ground to replenish water, but it is unable to flee while it is rooted. It has one green leaf on each side of its body. Its yellow head is bell-shaped and has what appear to be pink lips at the end. Bellsprout prefers hot and humid places, living in forests as well as tropical jungles.
- Bellsprout shares its species name with Vileplume and Bellossom. They are all known as the Flower Pokémon.
- Bellsprout can be seen as a parallel to Oddish. Both of them are Grass/Poison-type Generation I Pokémon and are part of a three-stage evolutionary line, who evolve into their evolved forms at or above level 21, and whose second evolutionary event utilizes a Leaf Stone. Bellsprout is exclusive to Pokémon Blue and LeafGreen, while Oddish is exclusive to Pokémon Red and FireRed, with both Pokémon found in the same locations in their respective versions. Additionally, both can be found at White Forest in Pokémon White, and both Pokémon have had their Egg designs revealed.
Bellsprout and its evolutions may be based upon carnivorous pitcher plants, particularly the Nepenthes genus.
Bellsprout is a combination of bell (referring to its bell-like head) and sprout (referring to it being relatively young in its evolutionary line).
Madatsubomi can be taken to mean まだ蕾 (still [a] flower bud).
