Seedot is basically just an acorn, but when it evolves its nose gets longer and it turns into the more human-like Nuzleaf. From an innocent acorn it becomes a veritable Dark-type Pokémon. Further evolution turns it into the dark long-nosed Shiftry.
This may not be one of the showiest species, but Shiftry can be used in the Ultra League and elsewhere thanks to its suitability for battle.
