Xerneas
Yveltal
Zygarde

The Aura Trio, also called Yggdrasil Trio, XYZ trio or Mortality Trio, are fan terms used to refer to three powerful Legendary Pokémon of the Kalos region: Xerneas, Yveltal, and Zygarde. They are considered the beings of life, destruction and order respectively.

Contrary to the main pattern of legendary trios; this trio, at least one of them Zygarde, has a different base stat distribution total. Xerneas and Yveltal have a base stat distribution of 126-131-95-131-98-99, totaling 680. Zygarde, on the other hand has different base stat distribution and total for each of its forms.

The trio was themed after the concept of mortality, order, or equilibrium of life and death; and are named after the last three letters of the alphabet or the axes of the Cartesian coordinate system. Xerneas is considered the being of life, having said to have shared eternal life, and exudes a revitalizing aura; Xerneas also represent the letter X. Yveltal is known as the being of destruction, possessing the reputation of a destructive nature; Yveltal represents the letter Y. Zygarde, their internal trio master, is renowned as the being of balance, it is said to have monitoring the ecosystem. And when the ecosystem falls into disorder, Zygarde unleashes its true power; Zygarde represents the letter Z.

The abilities of this trio only interacts when only these three battle, Xerneas with Fairy Aura, Yveltal with Dark Aura and Zygarde 50% forme, with Aura Break. In Pokémon Rumble World, there is a title that can be earned through befriending these Pokémon. The title is called "Aura Traveller." Thus the name Aura Trio.

Theories

There are two theories that show evidence of the trio being interrelated:

3-dimensional coordinate system Theory

During an interview with Ken Sugimori, Pokémon X and Y's Art Director, he revealed that the legendaries were based on the axes of the Cartesian coordinate system, apt with the first games to use fully fledged 3D graphics in the Pokémon game core series. The x-axis is spread horizontally, which reflects Xerneas' residence on land, the y-axis is positioned vertically, or pointing upwards, which reflects Yveltal's avian feats. The z-axis, only present when graphing 3-dimensional figures, means depth; reflecting Zygarde's residence underground.

In the games

Pokémon X & Y

In X and Y, either Dialga or Palkia appears atop the Spear Pillar, and after the defeat of the Elite Four, the player can find Giratina hidden at the end of a puzzle in Turnback Cave.

Pokémon Platinum

In Pokémon Platinum, both Dialga and Palkia appear in dimensional rifts atop the Spear Pillar after beating the Elite Four. Giratina appears in its Origin Forme in the Distortion World when first encountered, but if it is defeated or fled from, it will appear in Turnback Cave in its Altered Forme, after the Elite Four.

Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver

One of the three Pokémon can be obtained in HeartGold and SoulSilver if the player has a level 100, fateful encounter event Arceus by itself in his/her party. The player must go to the Sinjoh Ruins and speak with Cynthia, and, after some time, Arceus will create a member of the creation trio which will be at level 1 and have a basic moveset.

Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

In Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, either Dialga or Palkia will appear in the Dimensional Rift near Dewford Town when the player has Uxie, Mesprit, and Azelf in his/her party when soaring in the sky. Giratina will appear in same Dimensional Rift if Dialga and Palkia are in the player's party.

In the anime

Dialga and Palkia made their debut appearance in the movie The Rise of Darkrai. In this movie, their two worlds, the Temporal World and the Spatial World, collided, leading the two to mistakenly believe that they were intentionally invading each other's territory. As such, the two began to violently clash, causing large distortions between time and space in Alamos Town. However, Palkia sustained injury when one of the pearls on its arm was cracked. Palkia then took refuge in Alamos Town and also wound up transferring the town to the Spatial World. Dialga then appeared before it once Darkrai forced Palkia to reveal itself. The two then violently continued fighting in the town. Darkrai also intervened in their fight to protect the town, and Dialga and Palkia continued to fight with Darkrai involved, causing massive destruction around Alamos Town. However, Ash and Dawn soon activate the song Oracion on the Space-Time Tower, which becalms Dialga and Palkia, and they, end their fight, and Palkia restores Alamos Town to its original state. Dialga then leaves.

The same Dialga appears again in Giratina and the Sky Warrior, along with Giratina. In this movie, it is revealed that the fighting between Dialga and Palkia in the previous movie caused many toxic clouds to appear in Giratina's Reverse World. Giratina, furious at the two for defiling its home, sought revenge on Dialga, attacking it violently near a lake and drawing it into the Reverse World. As the two battled, Dialga attempted to escape, but Giratina constantly kept pulling it in. However, the vortex caused by Giratina abducting Dialga ended up pulling a fearful Shaymin into the Reverse World on accident, who, in fear of the situation, used Seed Flare which opened up a portal, and Dialga escaped by locking Giratina into a time loop.

Giratina, seeking to regain its ability to traverse between the real and Reverse Worlds, sought after the particular Shaymin that enabled Dialga to escape. However, this Shaymin was under the impression that Giratina wanted to eat it and thus terrified of it. When Zero appeared, Shaymin forcibly opened up a portal using Seed Flare, in which Giratina regained the ability to traverse between the two worlds. Zero, in his goal to take control of the Reverse World, used a special machine to absorb Giratina's powers, which almost killed Giratina until Newton Graceland hacked the database. Giratina then struggled to stay alive until Shaymin then used Aromatherapy to restore Giratina to a healthy state. Giratina then helped along with Ash and Shaymin to defeat Zero, and when Shaymin opened a portal to help everyone escape, Giratina restrained Zero's ship and caused it to malfunction. It then helped Ash out of the Reverse World, but then flew away, to which Newton Graceland suspected must have meant that Dialga was nearby.

Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina all reappeared as well in Arceus and the Jewel of Life. When a harsh distortion appeared and almost got Pikachu and Piplup abducted into the vortex, Sheena appeared on the scene and used her mysterious power to summon Dialga, who arrived and saved Pikachu and Piplup, then destroyed the vortex with Roar of Time. However, its presence drew in Giratina, who, still enraged at Dialga, appeared from the lake and violently attacked Dialga. When Sheena tried to communicate with it, its rage ended up making it unable to commune. However, Ash appeared and called out to Giratina, and when it recognized Ash, it calmed down. Then, Sheena communicated with Giratina, telling it that it has misunderstood Dialga and to not battle it. Giratina then returned to the Reverse World in peace. However, another distortion appeared and Dialga ended up being trapped in the vortex. Luckily enough, Palkia appeared and used Spacial Rend to destroy this vortex, then bent space around Dialga to get it out of the vortex safely. Sheena then thanked Dialga and Palkia, and the two left in peace.

In this movie, it was revealed that the harsh distortions in time and space, and the subsequent conflict between the creation trio, was caused by the awakening of Arceus. When Arceus awoke and prepared to judge humanity as revenge for Damos' supposed betrayal eras ago, Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina all fought to protect humanity from Arceus, with Palkia bending space to restrain Arceus, and Dialga sending Ash, his friends, and Sheena back into time to alter the chain of events. After history was changed and Arceus had restored Michina Town, the creation trio parted ways with Ash and his friends, and returned to their respective dimensions.

Dialga and Palkia made an appearance in The Battle Finale of Legend!, where they are summoned by Cyrus by using the power of the lake guardians and the Adamant and Lustrous Orbs, and are controlled by the Red Chain to help Cyrus create his new universe. However, the lake guardians, along with their chosen three, Ash, Dawn, and Brock, help to free them of the Red Chain's control, and Dialga and Palkia then destroy Cyrus's universe and go into a fit of rage. However, the protagonists and the lake guardians combined help to quell their rage and the lake guardians send the two back to their dimensions. It is left ambiguous as to whether or not these are the same Dialga and Palkia that appeared in the movie canon.

Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina will all make a major appearance in Hoopa and the Clash of Ages, where they are summoned by the Unbound Hoopa, and they clash along with Primal Groudon, Primal Kyogre, and other legendaries, terrorizing the city. It is ambiguous as to whether or not these are the same ones that appeared in the Diamond and Pearl movie trilogy, or even from the aforementioned episode.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

At the end of the Diamond & Pearl chapter, both Dialga and Palkia are summoned by Cyrus at the Spear Pillar so that they can be forced to fight each other to create a new world. After Cyrus's plans are thwarted, Giratina appears and drags Cyrus, Dialga, and Palkia into the Distortion World.

In the following chapter, Giratina serves as one of the main antagonists alongside Charon.

Chronologically, the first appearance of the trio was during the HeartGold & SoulSilver chapter, where they were revived by Arceus to wreak havoc on humanity. After Arceus was calmed by Gold, Giratina was banished to the Distortion World while Dialga and Palkia went to the Spear Pillar.

In the Pokémon Diamond & Pearl Adventure! manga

In this manga Dialga is more prominent than Palkia or Giratina. For Hareta, one of the goals of his journey is to meet Dialga. Dialga also is the one summoned by Cyrus at the Spear Pillar. After Hareta stopped him, Palkia appeared.

Later, Hareta battles with Giratina in the Distortion World.

Trivia

Promotional artwork for an event distribution of the Shiny versions of the trio
  • Of the three, Palkia is the only member of its trio to share its type combination with another Pokémon.
  • Giratina (in Platinum), has its own unique battle music, is able to change forms (between Altered Forme and Origin Forme), and has two different menu sprites. Also, Giratina is the only member whose box art differs from its Sugimori art released with Diamond and Pearl.
  • No two members of the trio have the same number of legs. Even when one considers Giratina Origin Forme this remains true, as Origin Forme Giratina has no legs, Palkia has two, Dialga has four, and Altered Forme Giratina has six.
    • Also, no two members have the same number of immunities. Palkia has none, Dialga has one, Giratina Altered Forme has two, and Origin Forme Giratina has three because of Levitate.
  • The primary types of each of the trio are the specialty types of three different Gyms of Sinnoh, the only region that has Gyms of those types all together.
  • All members of the creation trio lose the ability to learn Heal Block by level up in HeartGold and SoulSilver.
  • As of HeartGold and SoulSilver, the creation trio are the only Legendary Pokémon who do not learn any moves past level 50. Furthermore, they are the only legendary trio in which all members can be legitimately obtained at level 1.
  • The creation trio is the only Legendary trio composed of version mascots which all have the same base stat total—Rayquaza has 10 points total more than Groudon and Kyogre, while Kyurem has either 20 points total less or more than Reshiram and Zekrom, depending on its form.
