Just look at this. It doesn't look like it's making contact...

Well, Petal Dance isn't Physical.

Petal Dance is Special.

Basically, you are shooting petals at a target. Those petals have to hit the target to hurt it, right?

Moves that make contact involve making contact with the target like punching or kicking.

Anime doesn't really relate to games. And I think that image was part of a Bulbasaur who participated in a Pokemon Contest. Plus, it is Special, not Physical. Meaning the Leaves in the image will hit the foe, but without the use of the body.
