Niantic has announced the arrival of the first Alolan form Pokémon in Pokémon Go, Exeggutor, who is available now for trainers all over the world to catch. The lofty tropical Pokémon will appear more frequently for a limited time in celebration of the announcement that Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Pokémon: Let’s Go, Eevee! will be coming to the Nintendo Switch in November 2018, complete with iOS integration.

The two new games will enable Pokémon Go players to bring Pokémon originally discovered in the Kanto region that they have caught in Pokémon Go to the Nintendo Switch.
