    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.

            It sounds better than Articun, Zapdeux, and Moltrois at any rate

                It took me one look at the legendary birds names to figure this out. I just thought Id post it incase someone didn't know. I am a fairly new member to pokecommunity.

                  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 Tr. 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'

                                  I Also Thought That.. There Was A Site Wich Had Pokedex With The Meaning Of The Words With It..
                                  I Once Searched It Via Google, Didn't Know What I Searched Nor When I Did It..

                                    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.

                                      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 ._.

                                          Entei is volcano. And I think half of us knew about the birds.
                                          Sorry!
