Origin
Grimer appears to be a pile of living {{wp|sludge}}. It may also be based on the imagined fear that heavy pollution, caused by the leakage and/or improper disposal of toxic/radioactive waste, may result in the creation of new and undesirable life.
 
Alolan Grimer may be based on an {{wp|oil slick}}, particularly the rainbow colors that are produced when a thin layer of oil floats on top of water,; this is due to a phenomenon called {{wp|thin-film interference}}. In the real world, oil spills are a major threat to ecosystems in the world's oceans (a particularand dangerparticularly in Hawaii, which Alola is based on).
