Victreebel (ヴィクトリーベル, Vikutorīberu) is a dual Grass/Poison-type Flycatcher Pokémon that is known to the evolved form of Weepinbell when exposed to a Leaf Stone. It is also the final evolved form of Bellsprout.

Victreebel has the same shape as Weepinbell, only upside-down. Its semicircular eyes appear directly under its mouth and it has several dark green spots on its body. There are two sharp teeth in Victreebel's mouth. Covering its mouth, Victreebel has a leaf with a long, brown, yellow-tipped vine growing out of it. Its height is 5'07" and weight is 34.2 lbs.
Victreebel lure prey into their mouth with sweet-smelling scents, then clamp down, trapping the prey.
They can be found in small groups and are highly territorial. At the depths of the most dangerous jungles Victreebel live in huge colonies, and few Pokémon enter their territory and live to tell the tale. Victreebel horde food, usually small birds and rodents, and collect Leaf Stones to perform evolution rituals at night to help Weepinbell become more Victreebel.
Victreebel live in forests, as well as tropical jungles and swamps where the ground is rich in nutrients. They can also occasionally be found in caves, near sources of underground water. Its range is basically the same as Bellsprout and Weepinbell's range.

It uses an incredibly sweet-smelling honey to attract bugs, and sometimes larger prey, ranging from small rodents to creatures almost as large as themselves. The prey is then swallowed whole and is slowly digested by powerful acids strong enough to melt steel.
James had two separate Victreebel (traded for each other in Here's Lookin' at You, Elekid), both of which evolved from Weepinbell while in his possession. His second Victreebel was expelled from the group by Jessie after it attacked her. It landed near his first Victreebel, both Pokémon fell instantly in love, and they hopped off together into the forest. They have not been seen since.
