May's Venusaur (Japanese: ハルカのフシギバナ Haruka's Fushigibana) was the fourth Pokémon caught by May during her travels through Hoenn. She was captured as a Bulbasaur along the way to Fortree City in a place known as the Forbidden Forest. As a Bulbasaur, she is voiced by 伊東みやこ Miyako Itō in the Japanese version, and by Tara Jayne in English.

Bulbasaur was captured in Grass Hysteria, although she had been featured in the series opening, Challenger!!, for a short while before that. May was kidnapped by a hungry Skarmory and ended up lost in a place called the Forbidden Forest, a preserve for Template:Type2 Pokémon. There, she met a clumsy Bulbasaur trying to pick flowers. Bulbasaur warmed up to May after she saved the little Grass-type from a fall. The other Grass-type Pokémon acted very hostile, though, and repeatedly tried to attack May. However, Bulbasaur explained to Venusaur, the ruler of the Forbidden Forest, that May was a friend. Before May had to leave, Bulbasaur decided to stay with her.

As a Bulbasaur, she was distinctive from Ash's Bulbasaur in two ways. One, she had a gentler personality and a pair of heart-shaped spots on her forehead. Her second main distinction from Ash's was her knowledge of the move Petal Dance as opposed to Ash's Bulbasaur's use of the technique SolarBeam.

She is also very fond of flowers. She became friends with Ash's Bulbasaur when Ash brought it to Hoenn temporarily in Hokey Poké Balls!, and further bonded with it in The Right Place at the Right Mime, when May decided to leave her at Professor Oak's ranch. Eventually, after journeying to Johto, May got Bulbasaur back from Oak, and during her time away from Ash, it evolved twice into Ivysaur and Venusaur.

She debuted as a Venusaur in Pruning a Passel of Pals, where she defeated a Marill for May in the second battle round of the Wallace Cup. Not much is known about Venusaur since she only had a small cameo appearance.
