*Moltres shares the same [[species]] name as {{p|Charmeleon}} and {{p|Charizard}}, {{p|Flareon}}, and {{p|Infernape}}. They are all known as Flame Pokémon.
*When introduced, Moltres was the only of his trio which didn't have a unique type combination.
*Its appearance is very similar to that of the Donkey Kong enemy, [ Fire Necky] another bird covered in flame.
Like {{p|Ho-Oh}}, Moltres is based on the legend of the {{wp|phoenix}}. However, Moltres is based on the phoenix of Arabic legend. Others claim that the bird is based on the Japanese mythical bird known as 朱雀 ''Suzaku'', guardian of the South, and is not a true phoenix. Regardless, the Pokémon has a very similar appearance to both the phoenix and the Suzaku.
