Trio master is a fan term referring to a Pokémon that, in some way, oversees a Legendary trio of Pokémon.

The trio master and the trio itself may relate in different ways. For example, Lugia is the trio master of the Legendary birds; it is the only one who can quell their fighting when Lawrence III captures one of them in The Power of One.

A trio master can be a member of the Legendary trio itself, serving as its internal master; for example, Rayquaza is the internal master of the super-ancient Pokémon—it quelled the other two members' conflicting in Emerald (as well as Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire's Delta Episode).

Catching trio masters

In the games, the trio master sometimes will require that the members of its Legendary trio be caught beforehand. There has been other ways from which the trio master is referred to as such though.

Pokémon Crystal

In Crystal, Ho-Oh cannot be caught until all three of the Legendary beasts have been caught in the same game.

Pokémon Colosseum

In Pokémon Colosseum, if the player has snagged and purified all of the Shadow Pokémon, including the Legendary beasts, and achieved a 100 win streak at Mt. Battle, a Ho-Oh will be delivered to the player's PC.

Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness

In Pokémon XD, the Legendary birds are encountered after the player encounters Shadow Lugia.

Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

In HeartGold and SoulSilver, Rayquaza is only obtainable after both Kyogre and Groudon have been obtained in the same game, which requires trading.

Pokémon Black 2 and White 2

In Black 2 and White 2, Regigigas will not awaken unless the player brings the Legendary titans to its resting place, Twist Mountain.

Pokémon X and Y

In X and Y, the name of the cave where the Legendary birds retreat after being encountered ten times roaming in Kalos alludes to Lugia.

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Regigigas can be encountered in the Island Cave if the player has a nicknamed Regice holding a "cold item" (a Casteliacone, an Icy Rock, a Never-Melt Ice or a Snowball), Registeel, and Regirock in their party. However, the player can only battle Regigigas during the day after defeating/catching GroudonOR/KyogreAS.

Landorus can only be encountered while soaring if the player has both Tornadus and Thundurus in the party, which also requires trading.

Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon
