- This is both the smallest and the heaviest of all Pokémon, being only as tall as Joltik but weighing as much as Celesteela.
- Even though its evolved forms (both Solgaleo and Lunala) are much bigger than Cosmoem, they weigh much less.
- Cosmoem has a distinctive metallic hum in its cry. This also happens with the Ultra Beasts, its pre-evolution, Solgaleo, Lunala and Necrozma.
- Cosmoem is one of the two Pokémon whose evolution differs between games. It shares this trait with Rockruff.
Cosmoem is based on a protostar. Its immense weight despite its minuscule size may be a reference to incredibly dense neutron stars. Its appearance may also be inspired by an eye, as well as an egg.
- Cosmoem may be a combination of "cosmic", "embryo" and "maelstrom".
- The Japanese name, コスモウム, officially romanized as Cosmovum likely comes from cosmos and ovum, which is the Latin word for egg.
- Cosmovum, the French and German name, is the same as the official romanization of the Japanese name.
