Shiny Exeggutor in Pokemon GO is a rare yet popular find for trainers looking to flesh out their team.
Niantic Labs has implemented several Pokemon and their shiny variants into Pokemon GO over the years. Exeggutor is just one out of hundreds with a strong dual typing and move pool that sets it apart from the rest. After all, what's better than owning a battle-ready psychic/dragon and grass-type? A rare-colored battle-ready psychic/dragon and grass-type, of course.
Shiny Exeggutor Pokemon GO
While Exeggutor was originally implemented as part of the base game on July 6, 2016, its shiny variant didn't debut until the Spring event this Apr. 9, 2020. Meanwhile, Alolan Exeggutor didn't see its release until May 29, 2018 with the announcement of the mainstream Let's Go! games. Shiny Alolan Exeggutor could be found after the game's third anniversary on June 28, 2019.
Visually, shiny Exeggutor features a bright yellow body with pink leaves. Its faces remain the same, however, as do its toes.
Encountering a shiny Pokemon in Pokemon GO is a ~450:1 chance or has a 0.22% rate of occurrence. Therefore, trainers should be on the lookout for as many interactions with either Exeggutor or its pre-evolved form, Exeggute. Trainers can evolve a chosen Exeggute into Exeggutor with the use of 50 candies.
These Pokemon were most recently featured in the Eggstravaganza event from Apr. 16-23, 2019. As a grass and psychic type, trainers are more likely to find it in open areas or parks during sunny days.
Exeggutor has a PokeDex number of 103. It hails from the Kanto region and is best known for its unique biology concerning its heads. When a head from Exeggutor falls off, it forms a group with other fallen heads to become an Exeggute. According to its PokeDex entry, Exeggutor originally hails from the tropics, meaning it's likely that Alolan Exeggutor is its retroactive first iteration.
