Trainers,

Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! are coming to the Nintendo Switch in November 2018! Once released, Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region that you have caught in Pokémon GO can be brought into these two new Nintendo Switch games. In celebration of this announcement, Alolan Exeggutor will now appear all over the world in Pokémon GO! This is the first Alolan form of a Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region to arrive in Pokémon GO. Keep an eye out for this Pokémon’s tall and stately presence all over the world, where it will appear more often for a limited time.

Funny story…

I had to work late last night, and WhySoSalty was chilling at home.  After I got home, we ate dinner and watched a bit of Doctor Who.
I opened my PoGo (which I hadn’t played for most of the day due to work) and saw there was a forced update.  I do the update and open the game…
and **GASP!** “Alolan Exeggutor!  Come on, let’s go play!”

So we rush out in our pajamas and slippers, at 10:30pm, and go catch like 40 something Alolan Exeggutors each.

We also got some funny AR+ pics.  Maybe we’ll show you those sometime…

I hope you all are getting these Exeggutors!
