The easiest way to get a Miracle Seed is by looking in the meadow to the north of Floaroma Town. There is one on the ground in the top-left corner of this meadow.
But since you can’t get to the meadow without Surf, another option is to steal Miracle Seeds from wild Cherubi. And this can be done much earlier in the game. Stealing is also the only way to get multiple Miracle Seeds (in case you want more than one).
The Miracle Seed is a held item that boosts the power of Grass-type attacks by 20%. This gives it the same primary effect as the Rose Incense.
Acquiring Miracle Seeds
Method 1: Floaroma Meadow (Step-by-Step)
The easiest Miracle Seed you can obtain is found in the northern section of Floaroma Meadow. This is the vast field of flowers to the north of Floaroma Town.
Note that the HM for Surf is required to reach the meadow.
With a Pokémon that knows Surf in your party, Fly to Floaroma Town to get started. Then head east from the Pokémon Center.
Leave Floaroma Town through the eastern entrance and continue on Route 205.
When you arrive at the bridge leading north to Eterna City, use Surf at the western edge and head west up the river.
Stay on course as the river curves to the north.
Ignore the clearing to the east as you continue traveling north.
Turn westward with the river.
Turn south and step ashore (landing on the opposite side of the tall grass).
Continue south and you will end up in the Floaroma Meadow. Climb the stairs up and then turn to head west.
Head as far west through the Meadow as you can go.
In the northwestern corner of the Meadow you’ll see a Poké Ball item on the ground.
Pick up the Poké Ball to obtain a Miracle Seed.
Method 2: Wild Cherubi (Repeatable)
Wild Cherubi can be found holding Miracle Seeds 5% of the time.
However, Cherubi is a fairly rare Pokémon that can only be located in Honey Trees. This factor + the fact that they only have a 5% chance of holding this item means that this method will likely take a while.
You can encounter wild Cherubi in the following locations:
|Wild Pokémon with Miracle Seeds|
|Cherubi (Honey Trees only)||
There are several ways of decreasing the time you spend on hunting wild Pokémon’s held items.
The most efficient item farming team includes Pokémon with the Abilities Compoundeyes and Frisk, as well as a Pokémon with at least one stealing move like Thief, Covet, or Trick.
Once you’re ready to search for a Miracle Seed, head for a Honey Tree and interact with it.
If you have Honey in your possession then you will be prompted to slather it on the bark.
After that, leave the area for a while.
Tip: Each Honey Tree encounter has only an 11% chance of spawning a Cherubi. So it’s recommended that you visit several Honey Trees in order to boost your odds.
If you return to the same tree after six hours have passed, you may find it shaking violently.
Interacting with the tree now will start a wild Pokémon battle.
If you use both the Abilities Compoundeyes and Frisk, not only will every Cherubi you encounter have a 20% chance of holding a Miracle Seed (rather than 5%), but your Frisk Pokémon will alert you if a target is holding one.
When you find one, either capture the Pokémon or use a thieving move to liberate the Miracle Seed from its owner.
Once the Miracle Seed is in your possession, you can simply flee if you want; you don’t have to finish the battle in order to keep it permanently.
Miracle Seed Details and Uses
The Miracle Seed is a held item that boosts the power of Grass moves by 20%.
This is most effectively used by Grass-type Pokémon in order to further stretch out their STAB damage. On average, Grass-types tend to be better off offensively than defensively, and boosting that strength is often a better strategy than trying to make up for their vulnerabilities.
That’s not to say there aren’t better items for this purpose—the Life Orb and the Choice Band/Choice Specs in particular are great options.
But the Miracle Seed is one of the better Grass-boosting items that doesn’t have any drawbacks.
Tip: Pair this item with the moves Sunny Day and SolarBeam to inflict truly devastating damage.
