Trivia

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.

Name Origin

Elgyem is a corruption of the abbreviation LGM, a common term used to refer to aliens, meaning "Little Green Men." Its Japanese name is likely derived from Greys, a commonly speculated type of extraterrestrial.
