Bayleef is a yellow, dinosaur-like Pokémon. Around its neck are several small curled leaves or at least leaf-like growths in a ring that Bayleef can shoot at opponents. There is also a large leaf on its head, which it inherits from its pre-evolution, Chikorita, but it's shaped like a scythe protrudes. This Pokémon is derived from a sauropod. It has red eyes, and has one large toenail on each of its four feet. It also has a small tail. Its height is 3'11" and weight is 34.8 lbs.

Special AbilitiesEdit

The aroma wafting from the leaf-like growths around its neck has a spicy, very sharp, distinctive scent, and all nearby Pokémon who inhale it become excited and want to fight. The scent energizes those who smell it, so much that they may even become aggressive.


Bayleef are calmer than their previous stage, Chikorita. However, the scent that wafts from their leaves serves to make people excited and can cause them to want to fight. It is very outgoing like Chikorita, but is more cautious. It looks up to Meganium and other grass types for knowledge. It will hide from danger and have its mother fend for her young. If anything to happen to the mother, it won't take care of its siblings, and rather join other grass types for protection, or join a herd of traveling Meganium. There have been instances where Chikorita joined groups of Jumpluff for help. Bayleef often can fend for themselves.


Bayleef are very rare Pokémon mostly found in large open plains or small forests with other Chikorita, Bayleef, and Meganium.
