Does anyone know the meaning of Altaria's Japanese name?

>I'm pretty sure it's named after a star in the Draco constilation. I know it's an astrological reference, anyways.

- Zeta

Location

Where is Altaria located in ruby/sapphire and beyond? I don't have any of them but D/P and this won't tell me where. Tyrogue

You just have to be patient. Bulbapedia relies on voluntary work and we already know where there are gaps. As it happens, I was working through the Game locations before my unexpected absense in the last week but now that I'm back I'll get back into them. --FabuVinny T-C-S 10:36, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
To tide you over, I think they can be found in the Sky Pillar, though very rarely. --DarkfireTaimatsu 19:15, 1 September 2007 (UTC)
You could also evolve Swablu, they're found on Route 114 and evolve at level 35. TTEchidna 23:24, 1 September 2007 (UTC)

I thought they were in Sky Pillar... Tyrogue

Another name theory

Could the "Alt" in Altaria's name possibly refer to the word "altitude", as in a high altitude. It does make sense, being a Flying-type. -- Nebula 00:24, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Hmm.....maybe. --Theryguy512 00:29, 21 February 2008 (UTC)

Altaria-based of a Phoenix?

It is,after all,a Dragon-type Pokémon and can learn moves such as Flamethrower and Fire Blast(even though many other non-Fire-types do too) If I recall correctly this was even once written in the Origin section!

Albatross?

...er? I didn't want to just change it, but it seems rather unfounded that it would be based on 'Albatross'. Just because it's name starts with the same two letters and it's a bird doesn't mean it's related. They've got nothing else in common. -absolutely nothing-. At least nothing I can see. The other reasons make a lot more sense. [[Derian]] 17:11, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Stats

Can someone please add the Stats heading above Base Stats? -_- I made an account to fix it, but I can't edit it. Amec

Done and done. -- Jïörüjï Ðērākō.>.cнаt^ 19:55, 23 October 2009 (UTC)

Trivia about Special Defense

Doesn't Giratina altered form have a higher special defense? --+ Joeshie + (is Mæ!) 06:17, 15 October 2010 (UTC)

Draco Meteor

Didn't Druddigon also use Draco Meteor in BW030?SONICバリヤ 15:28, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Yep. However, the page isn't protected, so you could have removed the trivia yourself.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 15:41, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Anyone find it ironic how Altaria is a power rock band and Altaria looks really calm? Anyone? Origami is math for the hands. -Martin Grant, MathPath 23:27, 16 December 2011 (UTC)
