What is a Shiny Seedot?

During a Community Day event, players have a higher chance to catch a certain Pokémon, as they spawn at higher rates than normal during the event. This time, the Seedot will spawn more frequently than normal, giving players an increased opportunity to catch their own.

There will also be a special Shiny Seedot during this event, which is similar to the regular Seedot, just slightly rarer than the other one. If you're looking to catch a Shiny Seedot, this Community Day event will be your best chance.

If you do manage to catch a Shiny Seedot during the event, evolving it to its highest form, Shiftry, will automatically grant your Shiftry the move Bullet Seed. This is one of the Pokemon's high-power moves, coming only second to the move Snarl, but more powerful than its average Razor Blade. Having this move would guarantee you a tough Pokémon that has great potential in PvP challenges.

Capturing a few Seedots during this event will give you a higher chance of capturing one that's eligible for the Great League and Ultra League, as the Pokémon is a pretty strong challenger in the leagues.

Just like the game's other Community Days that have been held over the last few months, the hours of this event have been extended to accommodate social distancing guidelines set in place because of the COVID-19 crisis. 

Even though Pokémon GO was made to encourage people to go outside more, the game's creators have continuously released new updates and gameplay features to give players more ways to play from home. The current stay-at-home orders were taken into consideration when the Community Day event was set up so players aren't encouraged to enter public spaces.

The best way to prevent contracting or spreading the coronavirus is with thorough hand washing and social distancing. If you feel you may be experiencing symptoms of the coronavirus, which include persistent cough (usually dry), fever, shortness of breath, and fatigue, please call your doctor before going to get tested.
