Bullet Seed (タネマシンガン Tane Mashingan?, lit. "Seed Machine Gun") is Ivysaur's Neutral Special Move. Ivysaur sends a barrage of seeds ascending from its bulb, inflicting 40%-50% damage to foes trapped within the assault.
Any opponents next to Ivysaur will be hit by the animation and get launched into the stream of seeds, making the move even more effective with its hidden small horizontal range. The move can be held to continuously shoot seeds, but only for about 5 seconds. The sheer damage and the opponent being caught in the air offers Ivysaur's powerful Up Smash the opportunity to knock the opponent off the screen.
Interestingly, Bullet Seed actually does more damage if the opponent isn't struck by the initial shockwave, keeping them much closer to Ivysaur. Over 70% damage can be dealt this way.

Bullet Seed is a fairly weak Grass-typed attack in the Pokémon games, but is capable of hitting up to 2-5 times in one turn, which its multi-hitting properties in Brawl reflect from.
