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?

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.
