Well, technically toad, but frog makes for a snazzier title in my opinion. Inspired by the currently most recent Pokemon Let's Go trailer that showed Venasaur hopping behind its trainer. The moment I saw it I immediately thought of other toad-like behaviors that the whole line could have, which led to these drawings...that and I couldn't resist drawing a Bulbasaur ribbiting once it came into my head.
I know Bulbasaur can't technically use Poison Jab in game, but if they could (and they should) they'd use it by launching a long, poison covered tongue at their target (the entire line has these now and you can't convince me otherwise). I mean, we all know the Bulbasaur line, sadly, lacked a bit in popularity compared to Charmander and Squirtle, and this little bit of "personality" is something to help the line get a bit more notice to catch up to the other starters.
I'm honestly fairly happy with how these came out, took just a bit longer then a wanted, but I think they're alright. I also remembered while drawing these that the Gen 1 Bulbasaur sprite looks like it was hopping, it's been there from the start guys!
