Trivia

  • No other Pokémon has the same type combination as Terrakion.
    • As such, it is the only member of the Swords of Justice that has a unique type combination.
  • Terrakion is similar to Moltres in two ways: it is a member of a non-mascot legendary trio, is found in its region's Victory Road in the first games that feature its region, and is found in a different location in all subsequent games.
  • Terrakion takes super-effective damage from Grass, Steel, Water, and Fighting; the collective types of the other members of its quartet.

Origin

Terrakion appears to be based on the character of Porthos from the novel The Three Musketeers. Like Porthos, Terrakion is the heaviest, largest, and strongest member of the trio. It also has traits of big horn sheep and oxen. Like the other members of its trio, its nose resembles that of a sheep, goat, or other hoofed animal.

Name origin

Terrakion is derived from terra (Latin for earth), or terracotta (a clay-based material, as well as its respective color), and possibly champion.
