Exeggutor is a tall, bipedal Pokémon that resembles a coconut tree or 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 Tropical Rainforest" or "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, the Exeggutor that live there grows over five times taller than in other regions. Alolan Exeggutor's neck is thinner and much longer, causing it to more closely resemble a coconut tree or tropical palm tree than its Kantonian counterpart, which resembles the shorter desert palm. It 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 its draconic powers, resulting in its psychic powers becoming weaker. Ancient carvings and murals depict this Pokémon. Its extra height makes it the tallest and heaviestGrass-type. In Generation VII, Dragon Hammer was its signature move.
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.
The number of heads Exeggutor has used to vary in earlier media. Exeggutor is depicted with an extra head on its back in every core series game up until Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen. In its Pokédex entry for Pokémon Crystal, it is stated that "living in a good environment makes it grow lots of heads". In the early seasons of the anime, it was occasionally depicted with more than three heads, often distributed in a ring around its torso rather than just on the front. In The March of the Exeggutor Squad, an Exeggutor's leaves are cut, revealing five heads. Additionally, official game art during this period also depicted Exeggutor with its heads distributed around its body, though not exceeding three heads. However, from FireRed and LeafGreen onwards, Exeggutor is consistently depicted with three heads on the front, and none on the back across official media.
Exeggutor appears to be based on a coconut tree or desert palm 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. It may also draw inspiration from Buddhist asuras, three-headed demigods whose faces are sometimes said to each express one of the emotions of joy, anger, and sorrow. This quality is also reflected in another Pokémon, Dodrio. Exeggutor's Psychic-type may come from the idea of telepathy.
Alolan Exeggutor more closely resembles a coconut tree or tropical 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 may be a combination of ココナッツ kokonattsu (coconuts) and 椰子 yashi (palm tree).
