Legendary birds

No change in size, 22:52, 3 September 2010
* Starting with Platinum, they are the only legendary trio to be both fully stationary and [[Roaming Pokémon|roaming]] as wild Pokémon in the various games they appear in. In comparison, the [[lake guardians]] have one of their trio who roams, while {{p|Suicune}} of the [[legendary beasts]] roams in {{game|Gold and Silver|s}}, but is stationary in {{game|Crystal}}, as well in {{game|HeartGold and SoulSilver|s}}.
* Since there were only four tracks of battle music in the [[Generation I]] games (wild, Trainer, Gym Leader/Elite Four, and Champion), normal wild battle music is played when the legendary birds and {{p|Mewtwo}} are encountered. In {{2v2|FireRed|LeafGreen}}, a special remix of the normal wild battle theme is used for the legendary birds, Mewtwo, and the [[legendary beasts]] when encountered. However, the legendary birds have never had a battle theme composed specifically for them, unlike the other legendary trios.
* The last syllable of each of the trio is a number in the {{wp|Spanish language}} (,one (Artic'''''uno'''''), two (Zap'''''dos'''''), and three (Mol'''''tres'''''), and reflects their [[National Pokédex]] order.
* If [[Sinnoh]]-[[Roaming Pokémon|roaming]] isn't counted, Moltres is the only one of the trio to change location, and it does so twice.
* Zapdos is the only pokémon of the trio that is never shown standing on its feet.
