Exeggcute (Japanese: タマタマ Tamatama) is a dual-type Grass/Psychic Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It evolves into Exeggutor when exposed to a Leaf Stone.

In Alola, Exeggcute will evolve into Alolan Exeggutor when exposed to a Leaf Stone.

Biology

Exeggcute is a Pokémon resembling a group of six light pink "eggs", usually seen arranged with five heads huddled around a sixth. Each "head" has a slightly different facial expression, but each face has triangular eyes with tiny black pupils and a small mouth. Each shell has some cracks, and one member of the bundle usually has its yellow insides or brain exposed. More numerous cracks are a sign that it is close to evolution. Despite looking like eggs, Exeggcute is actually more closely related to plant seeds. It is believed to carry genes of plants and other species.

Exeggcute gather in swarms of six. The heads communicate with each other by using a form of telepathy that only they can understand. Should the number of Exeggcute be reduced to less than six, the remaining Exeggcute will attempt to replace it with a similarly sized Pokémon as seen in the anime. It needs six Exeggcute in order to stay balanced or else it becomes nervous and cowardly. Pidgeotto and Crabrawler are its natural predators, which it chases off with psychokinesis. Exeggcute inhabits jungles and forests. Exeggcute in the Alola region tend to be heavier than those from elsewhere. This is due to the shells being packed full.

Exeggcute and its evolved form, Exeggutor, are the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Barrage.

Evolution

Exeggcute evolves into Exeggutor.

In Alola, it evolves into Alolan Exeggutor.

Trivia

  • Exeggcute shares its category with Chansey. They are both known as the Egg Pokémon.
  • Despite being able to learn Solar Beam by level up, Exeggcute cannot learn it by TM in Generation I.
  • Despite being consisted of six individuals from different births and having separate identities, all six merge during evolution to form a single Exeggutor.[1]
  • Exeggcute and Kantonian Exeggutor are the only Psychic-type Pokémon in the Grass Egg Group.
  • The size and crack patterns on the “leader” Exeggcute is inconsistent between games. In Red and Blue only, the “leader” is disproportionately larger compared to any other games which has it relatively consistent in size. The crack pattern is absent on the “leader” in all the Generation IV and V sprites while there is an additional lower crack under its left eye in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald. In its Dream World and official art, the crack is absent.

Origin

Exeggcute may be based on both plant seeds and a clutch of eggs. It may also draw inspiration from coconuts, considering Exeggutor's resemblance to a palm tree and the fact that Exeggcute is hunted by Crabrawler, which may be based on a coconut crab. It is possibly a visual pun on an eggplant, though it may also have been inspired by the "Egg Yolk" tomato, or the bird's nest fungi. Their Psychic-type may come from the idea of telepathy making them coordinate and act as one being.

Name origin

Exeggcute may be a combination of execute, egg, and cute.

Tamatama may be derived from 玉子 tamago (egg), as well as being a play on 偶々 tamatama (unexpectedly).
