From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
The kami trio is a collective term to refer to the all-male trio of Tornadus, Thundurus, and Landorus. They are based on kami in Japanese myth - Fūjin, the kami of wind, Raijin, the kami of thunder, and Inari, the kami of fertility, respectively.
Tornadus (exclusive to Black) and Thundurus (exclusive to White) will start roaming around Unova after the player listens to the story of an old woman on Route 7. If the player possesses both in their party, via trading, he/she can battle Landorus at Abundant Shrine on Route 14.
Base stat comparison
- The kami trio is the only group of legendary Pokémon related to each other which share a set gender.
- Tornadus and Thundurus are the only legendary duo of Pokémon with identical base stats.
- Despite being part of a trio, Landorus has a significantly different moveset from Tornadus and Thundurus. This is possibly to fit its role as the master of the kami trio.
- Each member of the trio is covered in spots, with certain ones shaped like magatama.
- The members of this trio are all weak to the Ice type, with the trio master having a double weakness to it.
- The kami trio has its own battle transition. A small orange beam will shoot across the screen horizontally and then a flash will appear before the battle starts.
- This trio is the only trio that has a very identical in-game sprite pose.
