On Seedot Community Day, 3x Catch XP will be active for the whole 6-hour window! If you haven’t reached Level 40 yet, or if you just love XP, this is a great opportunity to gain some!

|First Catch of the Day||500||1,500||3,000|
|Curve + First Throw + Excellent + Caught + First Catch + 7 Day Streak|
|Curve + First Throw + Excellent + Caught|
XP Tips & Tricks
- Stack your Field Research encounters and catch them during the CD window.
- Try to CATCH EVERYTHING, not only Seedot.
- Run a Lucky Egg for the full 6 hours.
Instead of Lure Modules, Incense will last for three hours during Seedot Community Day hours, .
Make sure to activate your Incense after the event starts, otherwise it will last for the regular 1 hour instead of 3 hours.
If you evolve your Nuzleaf between 11:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. (local time), Shiftry will learn the Community Day Exclusive Move Bullet Seed, a Grass-type Fast Attack!
Note: You’ll be able to obtain the Exclusive Move up to 2 hours after boosted spawns end.
Below, you can find Bullet Seed stats, as well as a brief analysis of how Bullet Seed Shiftry performs in both PvE and PvP.
Bullet Seed PvE Analysis
In PvE, Bullet Seed won’t help Shiftry much. If you want a STAB Grass-type Fast Attack, Razor Leaf is favored over Bullet Seed.
Bullet Seed PvP Analysis
|CP: 1500 |
|Attack IV||Defense IV||Stamina IV|
|Seedot Catch CP Cap for GL|
In the Great League, Shiftry still wants Snarl over Bullet Seed. With Bullet Seed, it actually loses a lot of matchups it would win with Snarl. Besides giving Shiftry the ability to farm down common Water-types like Azumarill, you’re better off with Snarl. However, it may find some use in a future Silph Arena Cup, so we recommend to evolve at least one Shiftry for GL during the Seedot Community Day window.
|CP: 2333 |
|Attack IV||Defense IV||Stamina IV|
|Seedot Catch CP Cap for UL|
|*DATA COURTESY OF PvPoke & KitsuneKurisu*|
In the Ultra League, Snarl is even more important to Shiftry. It provides Fast Attack STAB damage to common Ghost-types like Altered Giratina, and Psychic-types like Cresselia. Same story as for the GL: evolve at least one Shiftry for UL during the Seedot Community Day window. Better safe than sorry!
