Ivysaur (フシギソウ, Fushigisou) is a fictional creature from the Pokémon series. It debuted in the series' first generation, and represents that generation as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Brawl (via Pokémon Trainer)
Ivysaur appears as a moderately large, blue, squat, quadrupedal saurian. Unlike Bulbasaur, the bulb on its back has grown and partially bloomed into a pink bud with large green leaves, thanks to exposure from sunlight and apparently from drawing energy from Ivysaur's own body, which also gets stronger when it absorbs sunlight. The budding flower is heavy enough that Ivysaur appears to lose the ability to stand on its hind legs, but its four legs and torso grow thick and strong from the weight of the flower, even as a quadruped. If it starts spending more time lying in the sunlight, it is a sign that the bud will bloom into a large flower soon, which would be heralded by the bud giving off a sweet, pleasant aroma and the species' evolution into its final form, Venusaur.
Ivysaur is briefly mentioned in both Venusaur's and Bulbasaur's trophy descriptions.

Ivysaur makes its debut in the Super Smash Bros. series in its third installment, Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It is playable as one of the three Pokémon used through Pokémon Trainer, the other two being Squirtle and Charizard. It is the middleweight of the trio of Pokémon that Pokémon Trainer can use, and it is equipped with a tether recovery up special attack.
Ivysaur, along with Squirtle, did not return as playable characters in Super Smash Bros. 4. However, it does appear in both versions of Super Smash Bros. 4 as a trophy.

Ivysaur returns as a playable character alongside the rest of the Pokémon Trainer's Pokémon in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Like with the other Pokémon, it is no longer afflicted with stamina, and so can remain in battle at all times.
