elgyem

shiny hunting on route 121…

this was another one of those drawings that i started ages ago, only did a little bit of, got unmotivated to draw and left it for like 5 months, then came back to it and finished it in like 3 days

for this one, i started it in september and i had only done the sketch and the lineart

…anyway, the reason i started this in the first place is because, at the time, i was trying to shiny hunt for a shiny elgyem using the dexnav on route 121 in alpha sapphire, and thought it would be a nice scene to draw. also featured is dedede the plusle, my best friend and obviously the best pokémon on my alpha sapphire team.

…i still haven’t found the shiny elgyem haha

Mega Beheeyem, based on the Flatwoods Monster

Think this is more fitting to base the mega of an alien encounter like the rest of the line, than just giving it some bigger details. Gave it steel typing as Flatwoods Monster had some metallic clothing, and levitate because well, Beheeyem already does and Flatwoods Monster was said to do as well. And also good to make it immune to ground. Another option could be adaptability as ability.

The shiny one is colored to look more like the Flatwoods Monster, with darker clothing and reddish face.

Can we take a moment and talk about this thing for a second? Has anyone realized just how many pop culture references these things are stuffed full of?

Grey Aliens: The first evolution, Elgyem, is designed to look similar to the popular grey aliens.

Roswell: The pokedex says that they were discovered after a UFO crashed in a desert about 50 years ago. This is based off of the story that a UFO crashed in Roswell, New Mexico.

Close Encounters of the third kind: They communicate using the colored lights on their hands, similar to the large ship in the movie Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

Men in Black: Its second evolution, Beheeyem, can alter people’s memories. This is based on the movies Men in Black in which they use technology to alter people’s memories.

Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: Elgyem evolves at level 42. This is the supposed answer to life, the universe, and everything in the book The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.

Hidden Aliens: The second evolution, Beheeyem, has features that resemble a hat and trench coat which are clothing commonly used to hide. This is based on the theory that aliens are hiding among us.

Hello! If you don't mind me asking, do you have any headcanons for the Elgyem line?

One of those pokemon that are forgotten a lot unfortunately, cool! :0

Elgyem

* If there’s a person that they don’t like, they’ll use their psychic powers to give them really bad headaches. They’ll never do this to pokemon though or human children, just trainers who should know better.

* There is still a lot of things about this pokemon that people don’t know. It’s widely believed that this pokemon came from space and is the subject of a lot of research.

* They’re very curious pokemon. They like to know about everything and everyone around them so they’ll sit and observe, trying to learn what they can from merely observing.

Beheeyem

* They have the ability to see and tamper with anyone’s memories. They can use this to help others though. They normally only do this with their trainers, what they’ll do is if they see that their trainer either wants to forget something or can’t remember something, it’ll use it’s abilities to help them.

* Sometimes it can be a bit hard to understand what they’re saying or want since they have no direct way to communicate with humans. The best they can do is project thoughts to their trainers to show them what they want to tell them.

* The lights they flash on their fingers have yet to be decoded by even the most smartest scientists. Some people seem to think that these lights are a way for them to communicate back to wherever they came from in space.

You cannot tell me that Dib wouldn’t have an Absol. 

They’ve both got excellent taste in hairstyles, and Absol and Mothman both have a funny way of appearing only before a disaster is about to occur. Makes you wonder, huh?

(Also, I believe the background is from the games, but in case it’s not and somebody else made it, please let me know so I can give proper credit!)

“That’s incredible…”

“Not a single speck of snow gets through. We have the occasional monster try and get in, but my own abilities can easily ward them off. You’re more than welcome to stay with us for the while if you have nowhere to go, we have plenty of supplies and they don’t take much to grow..“

“Amazing. But, no, I don’t need to stay, I’m with others. We have our own society south of here. Our scouts have been wanting to reach out to this forest for a while now and we’ve only just managed to do so. This clearing would make a perfect outpost that we could use for future expeditions, we could have a few Eagles reinforce any defenses and even have a Magpie station set up and establish a supply route back ho-“

“E-Excuse me what are you on about?!“

“We have a huge society back home. I bet we could share supplies, maybe even find you some better accommodations there! We don’t want to kick you out.“

“It certainly sounds like you’ve seen some sort of advantage to turning our home into some sort of military facility. Well what about us, you’d just kick us out of the home we’ve held for so long?“

“The benefits Sanctuary could reap from having an outpost like this outside of our main hub are incredible! It’s not like you’d be getting the short end of the stick here!“

“If what you say is true, then we have no problems if this society of yours needs to stop and rest at our home if you need to explore further out, but we both like it here. We want to stay here, home, without needing some huge army taking over it for their own agenda.”

*sigh* I should… really get back and discuss this further with the expeditions heads.“

“Do what you must, but please consider us in your decisions… I hardly think we could defend us should you DO decide to take this place… but…“
