POKÉMON SUN and MOON Includes a New Long-Necked Exeggutor, and the Internet Loves It

Yesterday, it was revealed that in Pokémon Sun and Moon‘s Alola region, some familiar Pokémon can exist in new forms. For example, the Alolan Vulpix has become Ice type, while Sandshrew and Sandlash are both now Ice/Steel. Of course, those of us who have been anywhere near social media since this announcement know that the internet has already picked their overwhelmingly favorite new Alolan Pokémon: Exeggutor.

The already-goofy first-generation Pokémon was given a long, long, long neck that makes it over 35 feet tall, and even though Exeggutor is definitely tree-based, it still looks hilarious. The Pokémon website says of the new form, “The environment of the Alola region, where strong sunlight pours down all year round, brought about this change in Exeggutor’s form. The people of Alola boast that the Alolan Exeggutor is the true form of Exeggutor.”

And oh boy are the memes pouring in. Some show Alolan Exeggutor reaching new heights:

Others chose to focus on the fourth head which is located on its tail, which according to the Pokémon website, “controls the tail independently and can take on opponents to the rear that can’t be reached by the main heads’ attacks.”

Some are playing up Alolan Exeggutor’s baton- or staff-like properties:

Then there are all sorts of other reactions:

Let us know what you think of the new Exeggutor; We’re going on the record to say that it’s glorious.
