I meant that Grimer's origin is at least partially a reference to it in that it is at least clear that Grimer seems to be like mercury in some respects and the Pokedex states that it it came from a bay within the Hoenn region, which maps to the Japanese island of Kyushu. Minamata disease was first documented there and was caused by mercury being dumped into the bay.
