Exeggutor - NC98

Type:   Normal
 
Tier:   OU
HP:   
Attack:   
Defense:   
Special:   
Speed:   

Introduction

In the 33-Pokémon format, Exeggutor stands out as one of the best Pokémon available. While it may be without its beloved Powders, Exeggutor still remains a strong, bulky threat with the ability to trade with Explosion or limit recovery with Hypnosis. Exeggutor is a good counter to Jolteon, one of the most popular Pokémon in the format. This is because Jolteon doesn't learn Pin Missile due to level restrictions, limiting its coverage options. Exeggutor also checks many of the other faster threats in the format, such as Alakazam, Gengar, and Dugtrio. Overall, Exeggutor is a reliable check to the Speed demons of the format, and serves as a staple on many teams.

However, like many Pokémon forced to be L30, Exeggutor has some downsides. The loss of the Powders forces it to only use Hypnosis, which with the different sleep mechanics makes usage questionable. The lack of Stun Spore is especially notable, as it can no longer paralyze Tauros or Starmie, the latter of which walls it relatively easily. Exeggutor also has issues against Jynx, who has a faster and more accurate sleep move in Lovely Kiss, as well as deal significant damage with STAB Blizzard. All in all, Exeggutor has received significant blows to its consistency, but still demands respect from its peers.

Sets

Explosion

Exeggutor
- Psychic
- Explosion
- Double-Edge / Hypnosis
- Mega Drain / Hypnosis

Set Details

Psychic is here for STAB and to reliably hit almost the whole format. Explosion is primarily here to trade with Chansey, though it can be used in other contexts to blow a hole in the opposing team. Double-Edge will 3HKO Alakazam and Jynx, which helps it a lot should it be used as a lead. Mega Drain can be used to hit Golem and Starmie while getting a source of recovery. However, Hypnosis can be used instead to prevent an Pokémon such as Chansey or Starmie from using their recovery moves.

Other Options

Toxic + Leech Seed can be used if your aim is to form a wincon against an opponent's last Pokémon, though this takes up two valuable moveslots and isn't always helpful. Egg Bomb can be used for having the same base power as Double-Edge without recoil, but the accuracy makes it less than favorable. Hyper Beam can also be used to KO Alakazam and Jynx at a higher HP range in exchange for consistency.

Checks and Counters


  • Lapras - Lapras doesn't care much for Exeggutor's damage output and will 2HKO with Blizzard, and it isn't even close to being OHKOed by Explosion, making it one of the safest ways of forcing Exeggutor out available. It can also threaten to sleep it with Sing should it be using it, making it a more difficult opponent to switch into.
  • Starmie - Starmie is similar to Lapras in that it can KO Exeggutor easily with Blizzard, but often takes a more defensive approach with Recover that makes it even harder for Exeggutor to fight it off. An Explosion trade from full health against Starmie is only an unfavorable roll. Overall, these situations are less than favorable for Exeggutor.
  • Jynx - Especially in a lead situation, Jynx poses a massive threat to Exeggutor. It can choose to either 2HKO Exeggutor with Blizzard, or get a faster, more accurate Sleep on it with Lovely Kiss. This situation will usually end poorly for the Exeggutor player, no matter what choice is made.
  • Chansey - Chansey can take Exeggutor's attacks with ease, forcing it to try and trade through Explosion, or switch out. However, it does fear Hypnosis if Sleep Clause isn't in effect.

Exeggutor - RRIB

Type:   Normal
 
Tier:   OU
HP:   
Attack:   
Defense:   
Special:   
Speed:   

Introduction

Exeggutor’s amazing stat spread, access to dual powders, reliable psychic STAB, and Explosion made it a fantastic mixed bag of options to throw onto many traditional RBY teams. In Rose Red/Iris Blue... it’s still Exeggutor. The increased prevalence of fighting, rock, electric, and ground types make it all the more valuable. However, the rise of flying, bug, and fire types means that it cannot be slapped onto teams as carelessly as before and must actually be supported with reliable teammates. Overall, Exeggutor is a fine metagame staple that offers a lot of role compression to many teams.

Sets

Offensive Utility

Exeggutor
- Sleep Powder
- Psychic
- Explosion
- Mega Drain

Set Details

Exeggutor's strong offenses and solid bulk means that it will find many opportunities to use Sleep Powder. Explosion allows Exeggutor to take down a foe with it when its usefulness is done. Mega Drain is now a reliable source of healing and lets Exeggutor pressure bulky water types like Starmie.

Other Options

Stun Spore can cripple the faster psychic types that like to switch in against Exeggutor. Double-Edge can let Exeggutor punish Psychic types more directly if they attempt to absorb a Sleep Powder, by exploiting their lower defense stat. Exeggutor is a great spreader of Toxic, as its powerful Psychic can dissuade poison types from staying in.

Checks and Counters

Bug types: A Leech Life, Vise Grip, or Bind from these will deal immense damage to Exeggutor. Butterfree gets a special mention for resisting Exeggutor's dual STAB and threatening with its own dual powders or STABs.
Flying types: With their high base power STAB attacks, most flying types pose a big threat to Exeggutor.
Fire types: The likes of Arcanine and Moltres can force Exeggutor out with the threat of a powerful Fire Blast. Special mention goes to Ninetales for resisting Exeggutor's dual STAB.
Ice coverage: Blizzard and Ice Beam are very common coverage moves in RRIB, which can worsen Exeggutor's matchups against some threats like Starmie and Tauros.
