Bellsprout have a very skinny, stem-like body. They have roots that resemble feet, which they use similarly. Bellsprout have one green leaf on each side of their body. Their yellow head is bell-shaped and has what appear to be pink lips at the end.
Despite their small size, Bellsprout are versatile. Their stem is long, thin and very flexible, making them capable of swerving rapidly to avoid many attacks they are weak to or moving with blinding speed to capture prey. They can use their roots to replenish moisture and health from the ground if they are hit. They can also channel their roots through the ground to trip foes. They can also use their feet as insulator.
Bellsprout are adept at using vines to capture their prey of small insects. With blinding speed, they ensnare prey with their vines and devour it. If Bellsprout notices anything that moves, they will immediately fling their vine at the object.
Bellsprout prefer hot and humid places, living in forests as well as tropical jungles and swamps where the ground is rich in nutrients. They are common in Kanto and Johto.
Bellsprout trap and eat insects and sometimes take in nutrients from the soil.
