IvySaur used Sweet Scent by Kelpgull for the GA-HQ Pokemon Tribute

Ivysaur used Sweet Scent by KelpGull

KelpGull aka Erica is one of the newer Game-Art-HQ members and joined just a couple of months ago with one of her entries for a Legend of Zelda art collaboration. She participated in projects by other video game communities before and in the few months at GA-HQ she contributed four video game fan arts already with her take on Ivysaur being the first one and a really fun illustration of Peahat, an enemy in the classic Zelda being the currently last one ! 


The Sweet Scent is one of the non-damaging moves and lowers the Evasion of the opponent which can be very useful against many of the faster Pokémon. It is one of the moves that were added in the Gen II games.

It got a bit stronger since the VI Generation games and lowers the Evasion rating for two instead of just one stages. For such a slow Pokémon like the Ivysaur this move is a true blessing!

Ivysaur Vine Whip

While the Vine Whip Attack could be used by Bulbasaur already, it becomes a lot stronger when Ivysaur uses it. It is also the special move of Ivysaur in Super Smash Bros. Brawl. It is a Grass-Type attack without any side effects.


Ivysaur Pokemon Red and Green Official Art

“When the bulb on its back grows large, it appears to lose the ability to stand on its hind legs.”

The Ivysaur is the first evolution of Bulbasaur  and a dual-type Grass/Poison Pokémon.

It evolves into Venusaur from level 32 on and is a lot taller than the tiny Bulbasaur, it is also one of the playable Pokémon of the trainer in Super Smash. Bros Brawl and was made completely playable in the popular Super Smash Bros. Project M Mod.
