Victreebel (Japanese: ウツボット Utsubot) is a dual-type Grass/Poison Pokémon.
Victreebel has a bell-shaped body with a gaping mouth that has two sharp teeth. Its semicircular eyes appear directly under its mouth and it has several dark green spots on its body. Covering Victreebel's mouth is a leaf with a long, brown, yellow-tipped vine growing out of it. The vine is flicked to mimic an animal in order to attract prey. Victreebel also produces a sweet scent to further aid in luring its victims. Acid that has dissolved numerous prey animals becomes sweeter and even more effective at attracting prey.
It can be found in small groups and is territorial. In the manga, Victreebel has been shown to horde food, usually small birds and rodents, and collect Leaf Stones to perform evolution rituals at night to help Weepinbell become more Victreebel. Victreebel lives in forests, as well as tropical jungles.
- In Generation I, Victreebel has the highest index number of all non-glitch Pokémon.
Victreebel and its pre-evolutions are based upon carnivorous pitcher plants.
Victreebel seems to be a combination of victory (corrupted to make a pun on tree) and bell (referring to its bell-like shape). The maximum number of characters possible to make up a Pokémon's name in Generation I was ten, and this is likely the reason for the misspelling of bell as bel.
Utsubot is derived from 靫葛 utsubokazura (pitcher plant). It may also be based on 壷 tsubo (jar) or ポット pot (relative to bot), referring to its shape. It could also draw from botanical.
