Elgyem is an alien Pokémon with a pale blue body and depressions on each side of its skull. It has symmetrical black stripes running down the front of its skull. Shiny, green button-like eyes sit on the front of its head. It has three finger-like digits on each hand: one red, one green, and one yellow. It has stubby legs and a short tail. Elgyem has enormous mental strength, which it employs to compress its opponents’ brains and cause migraines. It is supposed to have originated from a UFO crash site that emerged 50 years ago.

Elgyem’s overall demeanor is kind and informed. It is eager to assist in stressful or otherwise challenging circumstances. Elgyem, on the other hand, might get completely immersed in what it considers to be significant and defend it with its life. When Elgyem approaches a television, bizarre landscape appears on the screen, which is claimed to be its habitat.
