Exclusive Move: Bullet Seed

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

RANK #1 SHIFTRY GREAT LEAGUE
CP: 1500 
Attack IVDefense IVStamina IV
01411
Seedot Catch CP Cap for GL
338

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.

RANK #1 SHIFTRY ULTRA LEAGUE
CP: 2333 
Attack IVDefense IVStamina IV
151515
Seedot Catch CP Cap for UL
555
*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!

RANK #1 SHIFTRY MASTER LEAGUE
CP: 2333 
Attack IVDefense IVStamina IV

Seedot Catch CP Cap for ML

Due to its low max CP, Shiftry doesn’t really have a place in the Master League meta.
