Exeggutor is a tall, bipedal Pokémon that resembles a palm tree. Its body and legs are light brown with thin black rings and its legs are thick with two-toed feet. There is a light yellow paw pad on each foot's underside. It has thin, green leaves sprouting from the top of its body. Exeggutor has three round, light yellow heads that resemble coconuts, each with different facial expressions.
Exeggutor's heads think independently and don't appear interested in one another, so it makes a lot of noise as each head speaks its mind. They still appear to get along, though, for they never squabble amongst themselves. If all the heads want to go in a different direction, its body is unable to move. They are able to communicate telepathically as well and sometimes use it to come to a joint decision. It uses psychic powers to fight, and since all three heads are capable its power is tripled. If one of these heads grows too large, it falls off and groups together with others to become an Exeggcute. In the anime, Exeggutor also has been seen in groups of its own kind, meaning that it is not a solitary Pokémon. Exeggutor has been referred to as The Walking Jungle. It can be sluggish during cloudy days due to the lack of sunlight. Being the result of an evolution via Evolution stone, Exeggutor is rarely found in the wild, though they can be found in forests and jungles.
Due to the abundance of sunlight in the Alolaregion, Exeggutor grows over five times taller than in other regions. Its neck is thinner and much longer, causing it to more resemble a palm tree. This variant of Exeggutor has a long, tapering tail with two leaves, and a fourth light green head on the tip. This extra head can also act on its own and defend the rear. The tail can use weak telepathy to scan the surrounding area. Its long neck can be used as a whip to attack enemies with its hard head. However, its neck can also be a weak point as it will become dizzy swinging it around. Its increased height reduced its need for a psychic defense and has instead awakened draconic powers instead, resulting in its psychic powers becoming weaker. The people of Alola claim that Alolan Exeggutor is this Pokémon's true form. Ancient carvings and murals depict this Pokémon. Its extra height makes it the tallest and heaviestGrass-type.
A group of Alolan Exeggutor can be found on Treasure Island. They first appeared in Partner Promises!, when Ash and Pikachu visited the island. They allowed Ash and Pikachu to play with them before leaving. They reappeared when Pikachu requested their assistance in helping free a trapped Wimpod.
In Misty Meets Her Match, Rudy used an Exeggutor in his match against Ash. It faced off against Bulbasaur and initially had the upper hand against Bulbasaur. However, the Seed Pokémon used Sleep Powder to defeat it, saving the Coconut Pokémon from falling down a cliff in the process.
In Got Miltank?, eight Exeggutor were living at a Pokémon-exclusive oasis. They were responsible for keeping the humans away, which they accomplished by hypnotizing them.
In Battling Besties!, Samson Oak used an Alolan Exeggutor during his battle against Hau and his Alolan Raichu at the Manalo Conference, but was defeated, eliminating Samson from the competition. It is unknown whether or not this is the same Exeggutor that appeared in The Guardian's Challenge!.
Exeggutor, the Coconut Pokémon. A Grass and Psychic type. Exeggutor is known as "The Walking Jungle." Its three heads can think independently, but since they get along so well, there's never an argument.
Alolan Exeggutor appears as a Pokémon summoned from the Poké Ball, where it acts as a stage barrier, blocking players from crossing over a certain part of the stage for a set period of time. Its neck acts as a wall, so certain characters, such as Greninja, can stick on to it or jump off it. Alolan Exeggutor also appears as a Spirit.
Exeggutor appears to be based on a coconut tree and possibly the Japanese monster Jinmenju, a tree that grows human heads that are always smiling. It might also be inspired by a yucca plant, with its bulky trunk and blade-like leaves.
Alolan Exeggutor more closely resembles a coconut tree or palm tree. Its Dragon typing may be a reference to the Dracaena genus of trees. It may also be a pun inspired by the Coca, a dragon whose name shares the same origins as the word coconut. Its dramatically larger size may also reference island gigantism.
Exeggutor may be a combination of egg and executor.
Nassy is derived from ココナッツ kokonattsu (coconuts) and 椰子 yashi (palm tree).
