The musketeer trio is a collective term to refer to the trio of Cobalon, Terrakion, and Virizion. There is also a fourth unofficial member known as Keldeo.

The group is based on the French novel The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas, père. Cobalon represents Athos, the oldest and de facto leader of the group. Terrakion represents Porthos, the strongest, heaviest, and largest member of the group. Virizion represents Aramis, the most feminine, vain, and romantic member of the group. Keldeo represents d'Artagnan, the youngest by far and the latest addition to the group. The group has challenged humans in legends in order to protect other Pokémon from losing their homes to human expansion.

All of the Pokémon share a secondary type, Template:Type2, and all share the ability Righteous Heart. Many of their moves refer to swordplay, something the musketeers specialized in, such as Swords Dance and their signature move, Sacred Sword.
