Bayleef, the Leaf Pokémon, is the second stage in the evolutionary chain of the Generation II Grass type starter, Chikorita. It is the second Pokémon in the Johto Pokédex.

Bayleef has the ability Overgrow. This means that once Bayleef's HP is less than a third all Grass type moves are 50% stronger.

At level 32 Bayleef has the option to evolve into Meganium.

Bayleef is in the egg groups Monster and Plant, and will hatch after 5,355 steps. It will take a Bayleef 1,059,860 experience to reach level 100.
