Bullet Seed Pokémon GO will be the May Community Day exclusive move for the Seedot family.

Bullet Seed Pokémon GO: Community Day Move Announced

Community Day will run from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on May 24. Seedot will be featured, and any Shiftry you evolve during the event or for up to two hours after will learn the exclusive move Bullet Seed.

Seedot evolves into Nuzleaf at 25 Candy, and then again into Shiftry with 100 Candy. Shiftry is a flexible Grass and Dark type Pokémon that does well in the Ultra League.

Bullet Seed is nearly identical to Snarl, a move Shiftry already can learn. The key difference, of course, is that Bullet Seed is Grass type instead of Dark. While not as powerful as Razor Leaf, it has better energy yield. For most purposes, it seems like it will function as a Grass type Snarl on Shiftry.

It remains to be seen if it's more desirable to have that Quick Move be Grass or Dark, but it does give more options to make Shiftry fit onto your team the best it can. Since Bullet Seed and Snarl are similar in all but type, it'll be up to your preference which one to use.
