If ANYTHING has NEVER made sense in pokemon, it's exeggute & exeggutor

#1PrettyTonyTigerPosted 7/1/2013 10:14:54 AM
Imo these pokemon are outright nonsense, forget about Dragonair evolving into Dragonite, or anything of that matter, i don't understand these guys at all.

The typing. Why is exeggute even grass type? They are eggs. Psychic type makes sense i guess, only kinda, seeing how the eggs are connected with a psychic force or something. But then why is Exeggutor even psychic? Why would a coconut tree have psychic powers?

The designs don't make much sense either. What genius thought a bunch of scatted eggs with faces was a cool idea? And why do they even evolve into exeggutor? I kinda feel like they just had a bunch of concepts of pokemon on board, at the time, and just put which ever ones together to evolve. (which is how Butterfree & venomoth got their sprites switched maybe)

Can someone explain please i would appreciate it.

They aren't eggs, they're seeds. Multiple Pokedex entries say so. I'm assuming that they are coconut seeds.

Much like how the Vanillite line looks like ice cream, but is actually snow and ice... Exeggcute may look like eggs, but they're actually seeds.

Oh... ninja'd. IGNORE ME!

Exeggutor is based off a Coconut Tree and a Jinmenju, a tree that grows human heads. Since it's human heads, that could be where the Psychic part comes from.

Kangaskhan makes less sense. How do you hatch from an egg with a baby in your pouch?

For that matter, why would you go in to battle with your child in front of the spot you're most likely to take damage?

Exeggcute has very interesting dex entries and I think the team that writes the entries in every game are clever about it (if this isn't a coincidence). Red/Blue mention that they are often mistaken for eggs. Gen 2 does not mention at all if they are eggs or seeds. The hoenn dex mentions that they ARE eggs as well as the Sinnoh and Unova dex entries. The remakes of FR/LG and HG/SS have basically the same entries as their originals.

Point of the story? Exeggute is native to Kanto right? It appears that in Kanto they were able to study them and find out they were actually not eggs and in all other regions they believe that they are actually eggs. Hmm, this makes me appreciate the pokedex a little bit more lol
