Morphs [Oak Catalog #]
HabitatThe whole line lives in forests. Seedot tend to live on the forest floor. They burrow under the ground with their feet. Nuzleaf tend to live in the trees to avoid predators that prowl the floors. Shiftry live wherever they please in the forest, they tend to keep to trees from which they can jump out and surprise other creatures, whether they be Pokémon or people.
DietSeedot are completely photosynthetic. Nuzleaf, now having mouths, tend to eat of smaller Pokemon. The leaf on their heads is sharp and can be used to dice food before they put it in their small mouths. Shiftry are apex predators. They attack and eat whatever they want. They tend to go for larger creatures and can take out flyers with wind attacks and psionic disruptory blasts. Swellow flying overhead tend to be killed in large numbers.
HazardsSeedot – young trainers are taught not to approach Seedot. Seedot are used as bait by Nuzleaf which is to be addressed in Nuzleaf's section. Also, touching a Seedot's head-stem may lead to it using bide which after a time might cause the Seedot to physically attack your child. Nuzleaf – Nuzleaf are very devious Pokemon. Nuzleaf have been seen in captivity training young Seedot to pretend to be stuck in the floor. Nuzleaf hide nearby – and when a Taillow or another predator tries to take advantage of the poor Seedot, the Nuzleaf attack viciously. If a trainer is in the forest and sees a Seedot, it's advised that he not approach without some Pokemon protection. Shiftry – when a trainer encounters a Shiftry, it is generally advised that the trainer run. Encountering a wild Shiftry is very rare and very dangerous. Shiftry are almost always violent Pokemon and they don't like you.
Social StructureNuzleaf move in bands. They move in pods that are normally around 5 pokémon, but in larger forests has been observed to be as high as 15. Seedot normally live with these pods of Nuzleaf, and the Nuzleaf all act as parents to the Seedot that join. Shiftry are, contrastingly amazingly territorial. Most forests have one, if any, Shiftry in them. If a Nuzleaf were to evolve in a forest that already has a Shiftry in it, The two fully evolved pokémon would battle to the death.
Courting and ChildrearingNuzleaf, during the spring, are in heat and the males attract mates by swinging around the “leaf” on their heads. The Nuzleaf then have eggs that are put underground. The eggs hatch and Seedot crawl their way back up to the surface. When Seedot reach the surface, they tend to meet with pods of Nuzleaf and join. Shiftry in the wild almost never mate, but it has been established that in captivity at certain facilities, they can mate and produce a Seedot.
