Someone has probbaly already pointed this out but the 3 legendary birds have numbers.
Articuno
Zapdos
Moltres

Uno means 1, dos means 2, tres means 3. I'm not sure of the exact language but most European languages use these or something like these as 1, 2 and 3.

Umm... two does not mean dos in English!! I think you got it backwards it means that in Spanish.

These news are very old.

I never knew that until now. I didn't think that english Pokemon names would have other langwhichis(?) in them, I'm now under steading why some people use words from other langwhichis(?) in made up Pokemon.

They went Spanish On that one. Because in Portuguese its Um/Uma, Dois/Duas, and Trs. And French it's un, deux and, troix

But I thought most of everyone knew that.

'Chu' does mean mouse, but i've always heard that 'Pika' either meant 'Electric' or 'Lightning' and 'Rai' (as in Raichu) meant 'Thunder'

To be honest with you, I never knew about that until I saw this thread ; Excellent observation Ytnim!

Oh, and if the thread that already stated hadn't been posted in for over a month, and he just wanted to bring this discussion up again, then him remaking this thread is perfectly fine.

Yeah, that was in the most popular Brazilian Pokmon magazine... 3 years ago, I think... in Pokmon Dungeon Dex pika means rat/mouse and chu the rat's/mouse's cry... but I heard a few years ago that pikapika means lightning...I heard...

But then again...don't all Japanese pokemon's names mean something? I only know a few words in Japanese, but for instance...

Shroomish = Kinokoko? Kinoko = Mushroom (I think o.o)

And that's about all I know ._.
