I am not the only one who thinks this, but it appears Oobemu is wearing shades, a trenchcoat, and a large hat, akin to an alien trying to disguise itself among humans like the martian manhunter did in Justice League: The New Frontier, among other sci-fi stories. It does fit in with its origins and characteristics and I do believe should be added to the Trivia or Physiology or whatever. Again, many other people do agree with this. --Ryuutakeshi 02:04, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
- I can definitely see the resemblance. Good eye, didn't notice it before. :0 Jo The Marten 02:19, 28 October 2010 (UTC)
I think it should be noted that Beheeyem have a heavy correlation with the Men in Black, due to its appearance, use of powers to manipulate memories, and its alien origins. One of the theories surrounding these mysterious men is that they could be aliens who police the earth and cover up alien encounters. --Oleandervine 19:19, 15 April 2011 (UTC)
It seems to me that Oobemu's apperance very much resembles traditional druid robes. I just thought I would bring it up because we mentiond the stone circles (wich are used in some druid traditions). What do you think?--EpicShadow 18:35, 20 November 2010 (UTC)
More possible name origin
I'd like point out the fact that his japanese name, Oobemu, contains the acronym OOBE, which stands for "Out Of Body Experience", a kind of paranormal phenomenon. I don't think that's a coincidence! --Lawrence91 17:05, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
Really, it's hard for non native English speaker to pronunce its name. How do you pronunce it? --SamuStar 14:06, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
- We don't put pronunciation guides on Pokémon articles. To ask general questions, please use the forums. --SnorlaxMonster 14:37, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
yeah, instead of writing that useless answer you could have write the pronunciation, I just asked one thing which can be asked in 5 seconds... --SamuStar 22:28, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
- Beheeyem is derived from the acronym BEM, or "bug-eyed monster", an old-fashioned term for alien, pronounced as individual letters. The term was popularized in Japan by the anime Yōkai Ningen Bemu, and popularized in the UK by Doctor Who, most famously with the Daleks. It's stated in the article. Ataro 22:33, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
thank you, so based on the name origin it's pronunced like "B.E.M.", right? --SamuStar 22:38, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
Is it just me, or do the look like daleks from doctor who? Beheeyems have domed bodies like daleks, and it has four dalek like spots. Beheeyems speak through light patterns like the lights on daleks' heads.The lines around it's eyes resemble the black "neck" below a daleks eye stocks. Finally, Beheeyems teal eyes look like one, similar to a daleks single blue eye stock. I am pretty sure that this resemblance is true, but correct me if i'm wrong.Spaceman46 00:54, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
- I don't really think so. Beheeyem communicates somewhat like Morse code + semaphore, whereas Daleks actually speak. I don't really see a resemblance between the lines and a Dalek's neck. Lastly, the eyes don't really look anything like a Dalek's stock. The only resemblance I see personally would be the buttons on Beheeyem's front abdomen, they resemble the self-destructive spheres around a Dalek. ★Jo the Marten★ ಠ_ಠ♥ 01:15, 31 August 2011 (UTC)
- I added the bit about the spheres to the origin section. There was actually a Japanese Dalek made by Yukio Sekiguchi in 1980, and its 'hand' does resemble Beheeyem's. It's a bit obscure though.

So the article mentions that TM51 may be an oversight but it may have been intentional. To reference the USA's secret military base where aliens were supposed taken. Just a thought =]
- Area 51? It would make a little bit of sense, because a lot of TMs were changed between Gens V and VI, and I don't think any other "transfer-only" Pokémon ended up with a weird move in their arsenal like this. To me it seems a bit more believable than the rather weak "oversight" defense. --KiANGLO (TALK) 23:43, 26 June 2014 (UTC)
