Articuno, Zapdos, and Multres contain the Spanish numbers 1, 2, and 3 at the ends of their names!
I have no basis...
Why doesn't Pidgey have a Spanish number in its name?
So it must be a funny coincidence...
ah that makes sense!
Did you know the Pokémon professors are named after trees!!!
They span several generation and I have no basis not to mention it does not name all the trees
So, it is some coincidence huh???
They're based on other origins. Not every Dragon is a reference to the zodiac whereas Charizard (presumably) is.
