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

It evolves into Exeggutor when exposed to a Leaf Stone.

Biology

Exeggcute is a Pokémon resembling 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 yolk or brain exposed. Despite looking like eggs, Exeggcute is actually more closely related to plant seeds. Exeggcute inhabit jungles and forests.

Exeggcute gathers 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. Exeggcute and its evolved form, Exeggutor, are the only known Pokémon that can learn Barrage.

In the anime

Major appearances

Exeggcute's first major role was in The March of the Exeggutor Squad. The Egg Pokémon was owned by an incompetent magician named Melvin. Exeggcute managed to hypnotize Ash and Melvin forced Ash to capture a bunch of Exeggutor. Melvin's Exeggcute managed to evolve, but without using a Leaf Stone.

Exeggcute also appeared in Pikachu's Rescue Adventure. Pikachu and company, plus an Elekid, found Misty's Togepi hanging around an Exeggcute that was missing a member of its batch. It evolved when all the eggs were back together, standing on a Leaf Stone.

Minor appearances

Exeggcute first appeared in Pokémon Scent-sation!.

An Exeggcute was seen on a photo in The Breeding Center Secret.

Trivia

  • Exeggcute shares its species name with Chansey. They are both known as the Egg Pokémon.
  • In Pikachu's Rescue Adventure, it is hinted that each of Exeggcute's members may have an individual sense of identity, even though they are all considered to be just one Pokémon.

Origin

Exeggcute appears to be a mixture of a batch of eggs and seeds, though it may have been inspired by the "Egg Yolk" tomato or possibly a visual pun based on the eggplant. It may also be inspired by bird's nest fungi.

Name origin

Exeggcute may be a combination of egg and execute.

Tamatama could be taken to mean 偶々 (unexpectedly), although it is more likely to be derived from 玉 tama (sphere). It is worth noting that the Japanese word for egg is 卵 tamago.

In other languages

Language Title Meaning
Japan Flag.png Japanese タマタマ Tamatama From tama or tamago
France Flag.png French Nœunœuf Comes from the word œuf pronounced twice. May also come from neuneu, a term that can be used to describe a vacuous person
Spain Flag.png Spanish Exeggcute Same as English name
Germany Flag.png German Owei From Ovus and Ei
Italy Flag.png Italian Exeggcute Same as English name
South Korea Flag.png Korean 아라리 Arari A possible corruption of 알알의 Al'al'eui, where both and 알의 is Korean for egg; thus possibly translated as "Eggy Egg"
