Cosmog (Japanese: コスモッグ Cosmog) is a Psychic-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

It evolves into Cosmoem starting at level 43, which evolves into either Solgaleo or Lunala starting at level 53 depending on the game it evolves in: in Pokémon Sun, Ultra Sun, Sword, and Scarlet, Cosmoem evolves into Solgaleo, and in Pokémon Moon, Ultra Moon, Shield, and Violet, it evolves into Lunala.

It is associated with the Guardian deities. It was hypothesized to be an Ultra Beast.

Biology

Cosmog tend to have child-like wonder

Cosmog is a small Pokémon with a gaseous body similar to a nebula. The gases that make up its body range in color from violet to light blue. The very center of its body is black both in front and back. The black space on the front contains its face, which consists of beady yellow eyes, circular blue cheeks, and a small mouth. The space on the back has only a single blue dot. There is a golden half-circlet on both the top and bottom half of its body, which divides it exactly in half. Two wispy extensions containing starry specks serve as its arms. Cosmog's gaseous body makes it one of the lightest Pokémon in existence.

Cosmog's body is frail and easily blown away. However, it is carefree and doesn't seem to mind. It collects dust from the atmosphere, which allows it to grow slowly. Cosmog has the ability to warp itself and those close to it. Professor Mohn's research tells that Cosmog can also open Ultra Wormholes when under extreme stress. This process is very dangerous for Cosmog, and the use of its powers can leave it immobile for extended periods of time, or even fatal when used improperly. According to Lusamine, the gases from Cosmog can also be extracted to create Ultra Wormholes.[1] Cosmog is theorized by the Aether Foundation to be a type of Ultra Beast, and its name was coined by one of the professors at the Foundation. In the ancient times, it was known as “The child of the stars” by the people of Alola. In behavior, Cosmog has an overly trusting nature and it immediately takes a liking to whoever shows it kindness, even when that person doesn't have the best intentions for it.[2] Cosmog is known to be very curious but not very cautious, this behavior has often led to Cosmog willingly put itself in danger, only to teleport away in case things get dicey. This Pokémon can also be created by Solgaleo and Lunala. The Guardian deties watch and protect Cosmog until it fully evolves and returns to Ultra Space to repeat the cycle.

Evolution

Cosmog evolves into Cosmoem, which evolves into either Solgaleo or Lunala.

Trivia

  • Cosmog and its evolved form, Cosmoem, are the only Pokémon who are unable to damage an opponent outside of Struggle.
  • Cosmog's evolution into Cosmoem has the greatest standard deviation of all Pokémon, with 47.14, meaning that the changes to its base stats upon evolving are the most uneven of all Pokémon.
  • Cosmog is the lightest Psychic-type Pokémon, the lightest Legendary Pokémon, and tied for the lightest Pokémon overall, being put at 0.1 kg (0.2 lbs.)
    • Due to its evolution, Cosmoem (at 999.9 kg (2204.4 lbs.)), being tied for the heaviest Pokémon in these categories, it is the only evolution line to hit both extremes of any measurement or stat.
    • Cosmog gains the most weight out of any Pokémon upon evolving, with an increase of 999,800%.
  • In games prior to Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, Cosmog has a catch rate of 45.
  • Cosmog, Cosmoem, and Type: Null were the first instances of Legendary Pokémon able to evolve, with all three debuting in Pokémon Sun and Moon.
  • Cosmog is the first Legendary Pokémon owned by a main character in the anime.
