Major appearances

Elgyem made its debut in A UFO for Elgyem! as the friend of Professor Icarus. It tried to help others by giving them visions of impending danger to help prevent the accident from happening but this only caused suspicion and drew attention to Professor Icarus's household. It befriended Ash and his friends when they too came to investigate, and even saved Ash's life after showing them a vision of Ash falling through a weak board on a bridge. It was later kidnapped by Team Rocket and Ash, Iris, and Cilan came to its rescue and reunited it with Professor Icarus.

Another Elgyem appeared in Climbing the Tower of Success! under the ownership of Ricky.

Minor appearances

An Elgyem appeared in A Maractus Musical! as part of a Pokémon Musical show alongside a Bouffalant.

Trivia

  • Elgyem is the only Pokémon that can learn Teleport through breeding.
  • Elgyem and its evolution Beheeyem are the only species who can have Telepathy as an ability outside of Dream World.

Origin

Elgyem is based on greys, one of the more popular kinds of alien. Its rocky physical appearance may be a reference to the stone circles of Europe, which were allegedly created by visiting extraterrestrials. The colored dots on its hands resembles the colorful faces of the invaders in the 1953 War of the Worlds film; however, the aliens in the film had green, blue and red dots while Elgyem has red, green and yellow. Judging from its Pokédex entry, Elgyem and its evolution may also be based on the Area 51 alien conspiracies or the Roswell incident. Considering its species names, physical appearance, and powers, it may also be based on a brain.

Name origin

Elgyem is a corruption of the abbreviation LGM, a common term used to refer to extraterrestrials.

Ligray may be derived from greys (a commonly speculated type of extraterrestrial) and may also be a combination of light (as in light-grey) or little and grey (alternative spelling of gray). Alternatively, it may be a combination of little and a corruption of green, referring to the slang for aliens: "little green men."
