Birds are evolved from theropod dinosaurs, who had fingers. Their hands evolved into wings.

They have the same general arm bone structure, but I think they've only got a tiny little bone that resembles a thumb (which they can't actually use) and one "finger" bone.

Now, hoatzins, they're a different story. The babies have claws like an archaeopteryx that they use to climb trees (since their main mode of defense against snakes and other predators is jumping out of said trees). They can also swim.

I'm assuming dinosaur/lizard because of the "saur" at the end - but I do have to admit they look quite frog like (obviously not as much as something like Froakie - but based on little things, they're frog-esque)
But I've never actually given it any thought whatsoever before. Is there any "official" thing that says what Bulbasaur is and what it's real life equivalent is if it is based on anything?

They're based off of dinosaurs, specifically Ornithiscian dinosaurs, as evident from their name. They do look like frogs, though, but that's only because of the way they're drawn, and the lack of tails. I just get annoyed when I see 'realistic' drawings of the bulbasaur line and they just draw big frogs with plants on their back; like the only way to make a pokemon look realistic is to base it off of an animal that currently exists.

I assume it's just due to the misconception that they are actually frogs - not just thinking "It couldn't possibly be this, so I'll draw it this way instead"

I mean - like I said, I never really thought about it much, but looking back I can tell that if I had thought about it I would've just automatically assumed frog.
