Pokédex entries

  • Sun

    Motionless as if dead, its body is faintly warm to the touch. In the distant past, it was called the cocoon of the stars.

  • Moon

    There's something accumulating around the black core within its hard shell. People think this Pokémon may come from another world.

  • Ultra Sun

    The king who ruled Alola in times of antiquity called it the "cocoon of the stars" and built an altar to worship it.

  • Ultra Moon

    As it absorbs light, Cosmoem continues to grow. Its golden shell is surprisingly solid.

  • Sword

    The absorption of starlight fuels this Pokémon's growth. The shell that encases it is harder than any known material.

  • Shield

    It sucks in dust from the air at an astounding rate, frantically building up energy within its core as preparation for evolution.

Trivia

  • Cosmoem is both the smallest and the heaviest of all Pokémon, being only as tall as Joltik but weighing as much as Celesteela. Cosmoem is thus the densest Pokémon.
  • Even though its evolved forms (both Solgaleo and Lunala) are much bigger than Cosmoem, they weigh much less. This can be explained by the theory of relativity, which states that matter can be converted into energy (and vice versa) if certain conditions are met.
  • 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.

Origin

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.

Etymology

Cosmoem may be a combination of "cosmic" and "embryo".

Kosumōmu likely comes from "cosmic," "womb," "SuMo" (the abbreviation of Sun and Moon), "mom," and "ovum" (egg).
