Exeggcute (Japanese: タマタマ Tamatama) is a dual-type Grass/Psychic Pokémon.
It evolves into Exeggutor when exposed to a Leaf Stone.
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.
- 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.
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.
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.
