Best Pokemon to beat Exeggutor

Usually, trainer make Exeggutor learn Confusion or Zen Headbutt for fast move slot and Solar Beam for charge move slot. Currently no Pokemon can reduce damage of both glass- and psychic moves.


While Chariard's moves, such as Wing Attack and Ember, are both effective against to Exeggutor, Exeggutor's moves, such as Seed Bomb or Solar Beam, grass-type charge moves, are not effective against to Charizard. The damage of those moves are reduced.

Even though Charizard can get same type attack bonus for using Ember, Wing Attack is preferred to Ember based on DPS and EPS. Then, it can use Fire Blast more often.

I would think that Scyther would be the ultimate pokemon to take out Exeggutor. The combination of being a bug and flying pokemon, both resistant to grass types, while using bug and dark attacks, which are super effective against grass and psychic types respectively, means that you're giving increased damage while receiving very little. Other good pokemon would be a high level Butterfree (bug/flying) that only had bug attacks, Pinser with bug attacks and Parasect has already been mentioned. Do you see a theme here, go with the bug.
Parasect is fantastic for beating Exeggutor as long as it has two bug attacks. Bug is very effective against both psychic and grass (meaning double attack bonus), while bug/grass typing makes it resist psychic and double resist grass attacks. I have a maxed Parasect at about 1,350 and it can easily defeat Exeggutors over 2,200 with some good dodging.
