Seedot using Bullet Seed by GaiaNex

The second last Pokemon Illustration in our Gen II Tribute (Celebi using Heal Bell) came from the GA-HQ Newcomer Gaianex who is a big fan of cartoons as well as the Pokemon games. He returned with not less than four more illustrations in our Generation III Tribute in 2018 and is a part of our just-announced Gen IV Tribute as well!

      

He draws really a ton of cute stuff including more video game fan art which you can see here!


Bullet Seed

“The user forcefully shoots seeds at the target. Two to five seeds are shot in rapid succession.”

Bullet Seed is a Grass-Type multi-strike attack introduced in the Generation III games.  Like other multi-strike moves, it can hit the target 2-5 times with each blow landing 10 base power of damage (25 since Generation V).  Starting from Generation V, any Pokémon that has the Skill Link ability as well as this move can deal 5 hits at all times.

Seedot can originally learn the move through TM09, but since Generation V, it can only take on the move via breeding.


Seedot using Nature Power by freqrexy

Bev Wooff / Freqrexy from the United Kingdom creates art for 13 years already and joined our Pokemon Tribute as one of the first artists in May already. In the end, she contributed not less than eight of the 151 Pokemon for it in 2016 and returned with four Pokemon in our Gen II Tribute and another stunning 16! of the 135 Gen III Pokemon, making her the direct “rival” of Yggdrassal, the only other artists in our community who ever contributed 16 Pokemon for one of the Generation tributes!

She is also one of the GA-HQ Patreon Supporters and helps me to create the galleries by writing the descriptions of many of the Pokemon and the illustrated moves and abilities 🙂 

You can see a lot of drawn art but also crafted items and even cosplay in her gallery here!

 


Nature Power

“An attack that makes use of nature’s power. Its effects vary depending on the user’s environment.”

Nature Power is technically a Normal-type move also introduced in the Generation III games, but it’s unusual as the type of move used depends on the battle arena’s environment!  There are 9 unique environments in Ruby and Sapphire, all with a set move to pick out and use on the opponent – Earthquake in deserts, Razor Leaf in long grass and Surf while at sea to name some examples.  Generation VI had the most environments with 14 to potentially battle in!

Seedot can learn the move at level 13 (15 since Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire).


 

#273 Seedot

“It hangs off branches and absorbs nutrients. When it finishes eating, its body becomes so heavy that it drops to the ground with a thump.”

Seedot is a pure Grass-type Pokémon and a version exclusive to Ruby, with Lotad taking its place in Sapphire and Emerald.  It evolves into Nuzleaf at level 14 and can become Shiftry after exposure to a Leaf Stone.

Seedot’s habitat is forests, where they are often seen dangling from tree branches while disguised as acorns, with an intent to scare other Pokémon.  This isn’t just for tomfoolery though – it uses the stem on the top of its head to absorb vital water and nutrients.  It can drop to the floor by either eating too much or by strong gales.  Whether it falls or not, it still polishes the body with nearby leaves on a daily basis.

While training for his Dewford City gym rematch, Ash and his friends encountered three unhappy Seedot in a nearby forest, no thanks to a landslide that damaged the trees they were attached to.  Professor Birch managed to cheer them up by playing with them for a while, before everyone found the Seedot trio a new tree to call home – all while preventing Team Rocket from stealing them, of course.
