Trivia

  • Morgrem's line are the only Dark and Fairy-type Pokémon to be exclusively male, and the first male-only Pokémon introduced since Generation V.

Origin

Morgrem is based on a goblin or gremlin. It may also be based on one of the creatures from Morgan La Fay, a witch that summoned a green knight who falsely bowed to King Arthur, which is also stated in Morgrem's Pokémon Sword Pokédex entry. It may also take inspiration from the Redcap, a goblin from English folklore who is said to have long hair, skinny fingers, and stabs people with a pike staff, similarly to Morgrem and how they attack with their sharp hair. The style of his hair may also take inspiration from goths or emos.

Etymology

Morgrem may come from the words morbid, gremlin, and grem, an old word meaning to anger. It may also come from Morgan La Fay, a famous witch that summoned creatures, including a green knight, who falsely bowed to King Arthur.
