Alolan Exeggutor gets a new Dragon Move

That’s no Wood Hammer – it’s a Dragon Hammer!

Earlier in the year we saw a Pokémon Sun and Moon trailer which showed the Alolan Form of Exeggutor using a move that looked a fair bit like the Grass Type move Wood Hammer. However, it turns out that it isn’t Wood Hammer at all – it’s rather an attack called ドラゴンハンマー, or Dragon Hammer.

This was revealed in a short video released by Nintendo Japan (in the ‘Cat Mario Show’). That explains the squeaky voices. Perhaps it is not the only new move Alolan Exeggutor receives?

This is a new move for Exeggutor and gives its Alolan Form (Grass/Dragon Type) a STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus) move. However, we don’t know how strong Dragon Hammer is, or if it comes with the recoil side-effect Wood Hammer has.

What do you think of this minor news? Do you feel that it may prove useful, or perhaps not? Are you a fan of Alolan Exeggutor?
