The seventh generation focuses on themes of nature, alternate dimensions, tradition, and relationships. This generation's starter Pokémon and main legendary trio designs and inspirations are heavily based on alchemical symbols and imagery. {{p|Rowlet}}, {{p|Litten}}, and {{p|Popplio}}'s designs are based on the alchemical symbols for salt (body), sulfur (spirit), and mercury (mind), respectively and the later evolutions also seeming to based on symbol variants or other alchemical symbols. The legendary trio is mainly based on celestial bodies while taking influences from alchemical imagery, specifically the Azoth Mandala: {{p|Solgaleo}} takes inspiration from the {{wp|Suns in alchemy|alchemical lion}} and the Sun, which represents "anima" or "soul"; {{p|Lunala}} is based on the Moon, which represents "spiritus" or "spirit"; and {{p|Necrozma}} is based on the stars and prisms, which represents "corpus" or "body". The [[Aether Foundation]]'s name is also derived from the fifth alchemical element, {{wp|Aether (classical element)|aether}}.
