NameEdit

Bulbasaur is a portmanteau of the word Bulb and the suffix -saur.

  • A bulb is a part of a plant that stores food. Fittingly a bulb is featured on the back of every Bulbasaur.
  • -saur is a suffix used to refer to reptiles, especially extinct dinosaurs (Which itself contains the suffix).
