The Generation 1 Grass-Poison-type is available as the player of partner through the main game.
Usually, Bulbasaur is chosen if the personality results are either Docile (for males) or Calm (for females) in nature.
Unless given an item that enhances mobility, Bulbasaur cannot walk on water, fire or cloud tiles and cannot walk through wall tiles.
Bulbasaur is a grass type, which means it is weak to fire, ice and flying types, so you should pair it with fire, water or electric types such as Pikachu, Charmander, Squirtle, Psyduck, Totodile, Cyndaquil, Torchic or Mudkip.
