Seed Sower (Japanese: こぼれダネ Self-Sowing Seeds) is an Ability introduced in Generation IX. It is the signature Ability of Arboliva.

This can be extended to eight turns if the Pokémon is holding a Terrain Extender. If hit by a multi-strike move, the first strike will activate it.

Seed Sower has no effect outside of battle.
