#103: Exeggutor - Grass Psychic Type

[PokeDex Entry]



The Coconut Pokémon

  • Ultra-sun: It engages its enemies using psychic powers. Each of its three heads fires off psychokinetic energy, tripling its power.

    Moon: When the time comes, one of its three heads falls off. Before long, the fallen head grows into an Exeggcute.

    Alpha-sapphire: Exeggutor originally came from the tropics. Its heads steadily grow larger from exposure to strong sunlight. It is said that when the heads fall off, they group together to form Exeggcute.

    Prof. Lotus' Notes: Their design is seemingly based off of 人面樹 (Ninmenju/Jinmenju) - human face tree. In the Folklore, the Ninmenju's fruit appear to be 'human heads. The faces are always smiling or laughing, even as they fall from their branch.'
    The name seems to be a combination of eggs and executor, however, I want to throw one more suggestion into the mix. Executor has a dopey look, and the name being a play on words as to say the 'eggs are cuter'.
