The Lyrics

The first release of my "Gotta Spoof'em All" mega-challenge. Bulbasaur #001 is the very first Pokémon is the original 151. So it seems only fitting I start it off with him. He is one of the three beginning Pokémon and usually the least popular of the three choices (the other two being Charmander #004, and Squirtle #007).It's funny because, he was always the one I chose to begin my journeys with. So I dedicate this to Bulbasaur, one of my personal favorites. There are a lot of references to certain attack and physical attributes in this parody. So if you are unfamiliar with the subject, please Pokéducate yourself with this link Bulbasaur.
Intro: All that matters is that I love him
And his use of H-M-1
Just put your balls up
Cuz it’s my Bulbasaur baby

Verse 1: Professor told me when it was time
Must choose one Pokémon
There were three balls and each had their own path
To the grass is where I’m drawn
There’s nothing wrong with loving plants at all
I say, “Green is for the genius kind”
So with my buddy here, I will go far
Bulbasaur you are all mine!

Chorus: He has a bulb where he stores
All his powers and more
I picked the right guy, baby
I got Bulbasaur!
You have some envy I see
I guess you should have gone green
No I am not shy, because
I have Bulbasaur! (Bubasaur!)
Had a shot and man I scored
He’ll Vine Whip your ass and more
Glad I got my Bulbasaur!
Sleeping Powder makes you snore
Poison you with toxic spores
Attacks crazy
It’s my Bulbasaur!

Bridge: Don’t be so sore, just add a bulb
If you are sore, just add a bulb
I said before, just add a bulb
And more…

Verse 2: Give him some sunlight and that’s your end
Solar Beam destroys you all
In Kanto region we are truly feared
Not fought someone that didn’t fall
A water type bout, is not a prob
Because Razor Leaf T-KO’s
I’ll win this badge, and he will say too me

Chorus: His Petal Dance in a way
Is a divine display
Got special attacks galore
Cuz it’s Bulbasaur!
Where have those Pokémon went?
I’ll coax them in with Sweet Scent
Yes I can do that, easy
Have a Bulbasaur!
If you cross a dinosaur
With a bulb, and what’s in store?
Then you get a Bulbasaur!
Leech Seed gets his health restored
Then fights back with a Leaf Storm
Why even fight back, you’re screwed
I have Bulbasaur!

Bridge: Your fire’s dead, water’s unclean
You’re angry red and envy green
Not Rock, Ice, Bug, or E-lectric
Beats Fighting champs, and old Psychics
Won’t leave things so ambiguous
Gains health with Photosynthesis
Rejoice and cheer for mi amor
And you know it’s my Bulbasaur!

Chorus: He puts out Charmander’s flame
You best remember the name
He’ll knock you right out, easy
Cuz Charmander is lame
He’ll make your Squirtle a squirt
To show you how much he’s worth
I made the right choice, because
I got Bulbasaur perks

Chorus: Your chance of triumph is poor
Go home and train some more
Cuz you got no shot, zero
Without Bulbasaur!
His Pokéball’s in my palm
It’s not hard to stay calm
I got that grass swag, credence
With my Bulbasaur, yeah!
Oooh, this will not take too long
Blow you up with a Seed Bomb
Bulbasaur will take you on
He’s the key, unlocked the door
Don’t know what you’re fighting for
I found the right knack, people
And is Bulbasaur-aur!

Can’t beat Bulbasaur-aur
Can’t beat Bulbasaur-aur
I picked the right track, now that
I have Bulbasaur-aur!

Love my Bulbasaur-aur
Love my Bulbasaur-aur
Cuz I’m the Big Mac, fighting
With my Bulbasaur-aur!

Way to go! I watched a bit of Pokemon growing up and I've played a few of the games so I know a little about this guy. Now I know a whole lot more and you were able to pull off a pretty epic song about him (which I don't think I would be able to do because I don't know nearly enough about Pokemon).

Bulbasaur does gives you the easiest start of the three. Charmander was the toughest one and the reason he was chosen more often was probably because Charizard happens to be the coolest looking of the three. That was the reason why I went with him.

Blayde - For 15 years, I kept a plush Bulbasaur (won in a carnival game) on my computer tower. I even do the voice. Thanks for this one. ;D

I know the Weird Al parody of the original song quite well, and I used to play Pokémon Yellow a lot, so 555 from me. Nice one!

(SOTM) Pokemon is a foreign language to me; I was never interested (always felt it was slightly past my generation). I love everything about this parody, and it's a pretty funny subject to set to this awesome song that Weird Al already parodied awesomely. Gotta 5 'em all!

(SOTM) Letting go the fact that Fire-type Pokemon resist Grass moves, and the fact that Bulbasaur is part Poison-type so he'd be vulnerable to Psychic-types, this was a fantastic anthem for the often-overlooked Grass starter (I know I'm guilty of that). Pity there was no mention of his evolved forms, but you can't have everything. TCOP used 555! It was super effective!

This is to me what a parody about Star Trek The Original Series would be to you, I guess, so my SOTM comments is pretty much what Chris Bodily have already said.

I also played a little Pokémon when I was a youth, so this wasn't totally lost on me. Really funny lines and great rhymes in here...the only thing I'm worried about is since you're doing a parody for every Pokémon (eventually), that it might be hard to differentiate between this one and Bulbasaur's two evolutions...but I'll let you figure that out. Great job!

Blaydeman, not that anything, but Bug beats Psychic. Hard. Also Bulbasaur is a bad choice at Psychic type, because of the Poison. Petal Dance was a clever one, I'll give you that, I didn't knew he could learn it. [breeding ahoy] About not using Bulbasaur - he's cool and giving you an incredible start at the beginning. I use him in my one-Pokémon playthroughs of Kanto-based games.

Are you going to parody the Pokemon from Generations 2 thru 6 after you've finished parodying all the Pokemon from the first generation? If so, when you come around to parodying my all-time favorite Pokemon, Luxray (from Generation 4), could you use a song by my all-time favorite musical artist, Elvis Costello? I'd greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
