Special Sweeper Exeggcute (Retro)
Exeggcute is a sensational Special Sweeper. It's purpose is to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. Keep in mind back before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Exeggcute is not a Pokemon anyone usually expects sees on the battlefield until Eviolite was attached to it. If Eviolite is held by a Pokémon that is not fully evolved, it will raises the Defense and Special Defense of that Pokemon by 50%. Focus Sash helps protect Exeggcute from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.
