At the start of Pokemon Yellow, you will only have access to Pikachu but you do not want to miss any of the original Pokemon like Charizard or Bulbasaur. This guide will help you learn everything there is to know about catching Bulbasaur in Pokemon Yellow.

The first thing you will have to do is treat your Pokemon right, specifically Pikachu in this case. Just make sure not to let Pikachu faint during fights and heal it properly when required. If you can’t be bothered then there is an easy trick. Right before you interact with Milena in Cerulean City, get Pikachu drunk on a lot of potions. No matter what level of health your Pikachu has, just give him a lot of potions and his Happiness Levels will be adequate for Milena to trust you with her Bulbasaur.

Since there is no ‘Happiness’ indicator, it can be a bit of a shot in the dark but it is quite easy to keep a Pikachu happy (Charizards, on the other hand, can be quite the divas). The only other requirement is to keep an empty slot ready for Bulbasaur when entering Cerulean City, or at least before you meet Milena in Cerulean City.

She can be found in a house near the Pokemon Center and she will just give you Bulbasaur for being a good Trainer. Congratulations on the new Level 10 Bulbasaur but your journey has just begun. There is still a long way before you. After all “gotta catch ’em all”.
