One thing about Pokemon games that made them so popular with players of all ages are the weirdly cute Pokemon themselves! Imagine Dragonite looking like the usual dragons portrayed in fairy tales, it would look scarier and not something you'd want to capture, or even encounter in the wild. Or would you have thought of Bulbasaur carrying something different on its back? The bulb actually made him more different in a cute way (mind the countless times we are going to hear "cute" today). Then, of course, these are the Pokemon we have grown to love and with the upcoming 3DS game, Pokemon Sun and Moon, expect to see a few more adorably designed Pokemon.
Pokemon Sun and Moon's Exeggutor
Pokemon fans can barely hold their laughs in whenever they see Exeggutor. We have to admit, it definitely has one of the silliest Pokemon designs with a bunch of eggs in its first form. Then it turns into a tree trunk that resembles a coconut tree. However, the Pokemon Sun and Moon's version of the Exeggutor is even weirdly hilarious.
Pokemon Sun and Moon Exeggutor grows over five times taller in the Alolan region due to the abundance of sunlight. With its thinner and longer neck (and multiple funny-looking heads), it now resembles a palm tree.
Pokemon Sun and Moon director, Shigeru Ohmori, explained to Kotaku on the basis of their crazy Pokemon designs, "When the designers first came up with the idea, the background is that the sun in Alola is so strong, that [Exeggutor] just keeps growing and growing. For the 20th anniversary, we wanted to have a lot of special surprises...we wanted a funny element. At the same time, we had to find a balance of cool ones, serious ones. We looked at the Alola region as a whole and thought about that ecosystem."
How did fans react with Alolan Exeggutor's design?
According to Kotaku, Pokemon Sun and Moon's Exeggutor Alolan version is a big hit and they are either loving the new design or they are simply making fun of it. Either way, it's still good media for the upcoming RPG game.
Pokemon Professor Shirtless
When asked why Kukui, the newest Pokemon professor is shirtless when he's a man of science, Pokemon Sun and Moon producer, Junichi Masuda (yes, the man behind the Masuda Method), simply answered, "It's the temperature." Makes sense.
Pokemon Sun and Moon is set for a Nov. 18 release. Get your Nintendo 3DS ready!
