If you don’t know who Junichi Masuda is, you really should. He’s been involved with the Pokemon franchise from the beginning — helping compose some of its iconic music and designing creatures are just a few of the contributions he has made and he’s currently serving as game director for the newest games in the series, Pokemon Sun and Moon.
With a current roster of 765, it would be tough for anyone to come up with a shortlist of their favorite Pokemon, especially if they were involved in creating some of them. Well, Masuda recently shared his 6 favorites with IGN and some of them may surprise you.
6. Alolan Exeggutor
Pokedex says: “Unlike other Exeggutor, the Alolan Exeggutor has a fourth head—on its tail! This fourth head controls the tail independently and can take on opponents to the rear that can’t be reached by the main heads’ attacks.”
Masuda loves the Alolan Exeggutor, the evolved form of Exeggutor, one of the original 151 Pokemon, because, “I think it’s really fun – it’s trying to be the very tallest thing there is, and I think it’s just a really fun Pokemon to go on an adventure with.”
We have to admit: Alolan Exeggutor looks like he knows how to party! (although it’s limbo game may leave something to be desired).
