Lyra's Bayleef (コトネのベイリーフ, Kotone no Bayleef), nicknamed Leafy, is Lyra's first Pokémon, which she received from Professor Elm in Johto.
Chikorita was Lyra's starter Pokémon and was used by Lyra to battle Dawn's Piplup in An Egg Scramble! as part of the Johto Festival. Despite the type-advantage, Chikorita was defeated by Piplup's Peck.
Chikorita's next appearance was in Bagged Then Tagged! where it was used in a tag battle alongside Khoury's Totodile against Ash's Monferno and Dawn's Cyndaquil. Although Chikorita was weak against both Fire-types, it still put up a good fight but was defeated by Cyndaquil's Flame Wheel and Monferno's Flamethrower.
When Lyra appeared in the Hora region, her Chikorita had evolved into a Bayleef.
Bayleef resembles a pale yellow sauropod dinosaur, or a lizard, with curled leaf-like growths, stated to be buds with small tree shoots inside, sprouting in a ring around its neck. A large leaf shaped like a scythe protrudes from its head. It has red eyes, and has one large toenail on each foot. It also has a small tail.
Bayleef are calmer than their previous stage, Chikorita. However, the scent that wafts from their leaves serves to make people excited and can cause them to want to fight.
Abilities & traits Edit
The aroma wafting from the leaf-like growths around its neck has a spicy, very sharp, distinctive scent, and all nearby Pokémon who inhale it become excited and want to fight. The scent energizes those who smell it, so much that they may even become aggressive.
With Overgrow, whenever Bayleef uses a Grass-type move, the power will increase by 1.5× if the user has less than or equal to ⅓ of its maximum HP remaining.

- This Pokémon was given the nickname "Leafy" due to the writer, Ten Tails', "B" button breaking, therefore making it difficult for him to type its species name.
