I've heard frog, lizard, and dinosaur.

Dinosaur.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.
Stunfisk is the epitome of monstrous majestic legendary creatures that spew fire.

Well first time i saw Bulbasaur i thought of a frog. but to Venusaur i thought of a dinosaur. So may be both? Frog dinosaur.

It's intended to be a mystery.

Its Japanese name is Fushigidane, which translates to "Isn't it strange?", and also means "mysterious bulb".

I really like how this works on another level nowadays, since Bulbasaur is the only dual-typed first stage starter.

It has saur in the name but it definitely resembles a toad EXTREMELY closely.

Venusaur even has wart-like bumps for Pete's sake.

It also kinda fits with the original trio--reptile, reptile, amphibian. All non-mammals rather close in the evolutionary tree.
