Seedot (Japanese: タネボー Taneboh) is a Grass-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Nuzleaf starting at level 14, which evolves into Shiftry when exposed to a Leaf Stone.

Biology

Seedot is a small, brown Pokémon that resembles an acorn. It has a gray "cap" covering the top of its head, and a beige mask-like pattern on its face. Its eyes are large and black with beige pupils. It has two beige feet. Seedot live in forests. It sucks up moisture and nutrients from a tree when hanging from a branch using the top of its head. The more it drinks, the glossier its body becomes. After it finishes eating it becomes so heavy that it drops to the ground. When it remains still, it can be mistaken for a nut. It will startle Pokémon by moving suddenly. It uses leaves to polish its body once a day.
