Physiology

Elgyem is an aqua extraterrestrial Pokémon with an oblong head with depressions on either side. It has black, symmetrical lines going down the front of its head. On the front of its head are shiny, green button-like eyes. Its hands have three finger-like digits: one red, one green, and one yellow. It has short, stubby legs and a small tail.

Appearances

Anime

Trivia

  • Elgyem is based on accounts of Little Green Men, commonly called LGMs, hence its appearance and name.
  • If you listen carefully to its cry, it sounds like there is a "yem" in the cry, as if it's saying part of its name.
  • Some sources from a Japanese website suggest that most Elgyem come to Earth by crashing into Earth by UFOs.

Origin

Elgyem is based on an extraterrestrial life-form.

Etymology

Elgyem's name comes from the term "Little Green Man", a type of extraterrestrial life form commonly referred to as "LGMs". The name might also have been taken from elegy and requiem.
