Core Games

Ferroseed in the core games

  • Sword Pokédex: It defends itself by launching spikes, but its aim isn't very good at first. Only after a lot of practice will it improve.
  • Shield Pokédex: Mossy caves are their preferred dwellings. Enzymes contained in mosses help Ferroseed's spikes grow big and strong.
