Why does Bulbasaur become poison type?

Probably to cover one of it's weaknesses.

You guys are taking the easy route to avoid answering the question, not that you have a real answer anyway apparently.


If you know "we are taking the easy route" than you probably already know the answer to your own question.

My interpretation of you guys answering the question.

"It's poison because it's a plant hurrrrr."

I want a specific answer.

How about asking Sugimori or Ishihara if these answers aren't good enough?

The best answer I can come up with is that in the first Gen Grass Poison was a commun combo, much like Rock Ground for instance, so the guys at GF probably felt it was a little wierd that the Grass starter would be pure Grass.

Also, you're not questioning, let's say, Vileplume's typing. If you don't find it wierd that a flower pokémon is part Poison, then you have no reason to doubt the typing of a toad with a flower growing on his back.

I'd put a quip here, but I'm not hilarious enough.

Bulbasaur doesn't become a poison type, he always is one. The only starter to start out dual typed.

As to why, IDK. ask sugimori.
