Exeggcute (Japanese: タマタマ Tamatama) is a Grass/Psychic-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.


Exeggcute resemble a set of six separate eggs. The "eggs" each have a face, and each has a series of cracks or even broken pieces on them. Even though they appear as eggs, Exeggcute are closer to seeds, given their Grass-Type status.

Special abilities

Exeggcute have the special ability Chlorophyll which allows their speed to double in sunny weather. This effect however, will stop when there is no longer any sunny weather.

Exeggcute always gather in groups of six, so as to use their special type of telepathy. Their Psychic-type status allows them to use a number of psychic abilities along with their Grass-type moves. As seen in the anime, Exeggcute are quite proficient with the move Hypnosis.


Exeggcute evolves into Exeggutor by use of a Leaf Stone.

Pokédex entries



Exeggcute's appearance are obviously based on the appearance of eggs. Their English name is most likely based on the word "execute". Its Japanese name Tamatama is likely taken from the word "tamago", meaning egg, and "tama" meaning sphere.


  • Exeggcute and Chansey share the same Pokémon species, both are known as the Egg Pokémon.
  • The broken egg on Exeggcute has a face on the back of its head, as shown in the original, Japanese, Red and Green versions and in My Pokémon Ranch
  • Exeggcute's sprite in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire is almost exactly the same as the one in Pokémon Silver.
  • It is unknown what they are, as many Pokedex entries say it is mistaken for eggs, while others say they are seeds, or even others say they actually are eggs.
