Special Sweeper Exeggcute (Chlorophyll)

Exeggcute is an awesome Special Sweeper. It's primary goal is to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. In the old days prior to Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Exeggcute is not a Pokemon anyone usually expects sees on the battlefield without an Eviolite attached. 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%.

Life Orb boosts the power of Exeggcute's damaging moves by 1.3x but it then loses 1/10 its max HP immediately after the attack. With Chlorophyll, if sunny day is active Exeggcute's speed is doubled.
